At first I thought I’d set myself a challenge this month and put 5 books on my TBR list. Then I realised I don’t have the time since university has started again. I just hope there is enough time in the evenings (or mornings) for me to read. Because of this I settled for 3½ books, and these are the books I plan to read this month. … Continue reading September TBR 2016
Jasmine, THANK YOU so much for nominating me (for yet another award)! Everybody, she’s an amazing blogger, you should definitely check her out! Click here and read her Versatile Blogger Award post.
The first blog post I did was Book Recommendation – Assassins and I thought now is the time for another Book Recommendation post. This time I chose Dragons as the theme, since they are my favourite mythical creatures. No matter if they’re animals, thinking beings, good or bad, I love them!
Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
It would be wrong to not kick off this post with the Dragaonlance Chronicles. The trilogy is seen as somewhat of a classic in the fantasy genre and if I remember right it’s inspired by D&D. If you are like me and love high fantasy, this will be straight up your alley.
The story follows a company of eight – a half-elf, a dwarf, a kender, a wizard and four humans – and how they are thrown into a fight they didn’t ask for. Despite their differences they travel across Krynn, trying to stay alive, while humans and gods fight for power.
The Hobbit : or there and back again by J.R.R. Tolkien
Another classic with a dragon, I think most have read it already, but if you haven’t, do it! The Hobbit is a great introduction to the world of Tolkien and the book of his I’ve read most. It isn’t as complex as LOTR but as beautiful. The movies didn’t make it justice.
It’s been a few years since I read it last, so I should pick it up again. I’d like to reread every book on my shelves, maybe that should be my next year reading goal? I’d fail miserably. I own more books than I’d be able to read in a year. I’ve been thinking about counting them or doing a bookshelf tour. Maybe both…
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan My rating: 3 of 5 stars This took me way too long to finish. But now I’ve read it! I didn’t know anything about this story (other than that there are 14 books in the series) before my boyfriend recommended it and I begun reading. The story follows three young men who’s village is attacked by trollocs. … Continue reading The Eye of the World
Thank you so much Jasmine from How Useful It Is for tagging me! Loved reading your post and hope mine will be as good. Let’s begin!
An Over-Hyped Book
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
Please don’t hate me, I just didn’t fall for it. My expectations were so much higher.
Situation: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Again, please don’t hate me…
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne My rating: 5 of 5 stars I got it, read it and loved it! To be able to disappear into a new story set in the world of Harry Potter was something I’ve been waiting for since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. To finally be able to is a dream come … Continue reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
WE ARE GETTING MORE BOOKS ON HARRY POTTER! Sure, everything already exists on Pottermore, but my point still stands – we are getting more BOOKS on Harry Potter! Look at these beauties… I just saw Kristin a.k.a. SuperSpaceChick liking these on Goodreads and I couldn’t believe my eyes. All three books are released on September 6th 2016 as ebooks (hopefully there will be hardcovers soon as well). … Continue reading More Harry Potter – I CAN’T HANDLE THIS!
Updated the theme of my blog. I loved the theme I had but I had one issue with it. I never got the header to look as good as I wanted. And if I just had the blog name visible it looked so… empty. I’m going to try this out for a while now. What do you think? Is it better than before? Continue reading Aesthetic changes

Reading on the couch or in the bed?
What a difficult start! I usually read in the bed, since I have more reading time in the evenings, but I love the couch also.
Male main character or Female main character?
