The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

It’s been more than a month since I’ve finished this book – I know, I’m terribly late with reviews: I blame it on university deadlines. The last mile is always the longest one … But I think I’ve also dreaded writing this review because, well, it wasn’t really my kind of book. Let’s see, shall we?

My Summer TBR Update

In June I posted this blog post on my Summer TBR: all the books I intended to read during the summer months (June, July and August). I thought it would be fun to do two updates before the end of summer, at the start of each new month, and tell you how my TBR is coming along! Continue reading “My Summer TBR Update”

Read #6 June 2015

This month I decided to split the Read & Seen blog post up. Every time they turn out quite long and take up much time to compose, so I figured it would be better to spread the fun over two posts. Of most of them I have yet to write a review, but today I’m going to give you a little sneak peak of what I thought.  Continue reading “Read #6 June 2015”

Goodreads Challenge Finished!

Wow, I can’t believe it. I just finished my Goodreads reading challenge. Okay, I set it at 30 books, which is below the average on Goodreads, but one year ago I wouldn’t even have read one book a month, and now I’ve read 30 in six months and three days. So I think it’s time for looking back on the developments of the last six months Continue reading “Goodreads Challenge Finished!”

Finishing Books?

Are you finishing every book you start? I’m usually the person that does, ’cause I think I owe it to the author to at least finish his or her book before I give an opinion. But now that I’m having a hard time finishing a certain book myself and that it wasn’t too long ago that I posted my books that deserve a second chance blog post, I’m starting to wonder whether you should really force a reading process like that. Continue reading “Finishing Books?”

My Summer TBR

Summer is upon us and I’m really looking forward to reading in the sunshine. I thought it might be nice to put together a Summer TBR as a kind of mini challenge. Over the last few weeks I bought quite a few novels, so this way I hope to make sure I’m reading them as soon as possible (and not buying more books instead). Want to see what’s on the list?

From Rowling to Pooh – New Books

I’ve got some new books to show you! I recently purchased three new books at, but I also bought two books at the bookshop AND received and borrowed some books. Want to see what’s new on my TBR list? Continue reading “From Rowling to Pooh – New Books”
