Dear reader,

If you follow me on social media you may have noticed my oh so little obsession with the Marvel character Spider-Man, and therefor Peter Parker.

Okay, I can already hear all my friends laughing: I have a big obsession for him.

Recently I asked over Instagram and Twitter if people would be interrested in knowing why I actually love him that much, and surprisingly people have said yes. So here we are: be prepared to know all about my undying love for Spider-Man/Peter Parker.

MHAM | What I learned from having a mental illness

thebookwormofnotredame (20).png

Dear reader,

I remember having to face my first panic attack when I was 11 years old. I have been diagnosed with depression at 14. A lot of other names have been added to all of this, but the whole point is that I have been suffering from a mental illness pretty much my all life. Obviously it helped me being who I am today, even though it does not define me.

I think it’s important to emphasise the fact that none of what I have been through really says anything about myself. I just learned through the years to get something out of it, to see the brightside of it all. So here is what I learned from having a mental illness.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

The plot of the first book in the Empirium series, Furyborn

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable—until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world—and of each other.

Five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, Lady Midnight is my favourite book of whole time. Ever since I first read it for the first time in January of 2017 I then read it five more times. Did I ever get bored of it? Absolutely not.

As this book is a part of the very long Shadowhunters Chronicles I have to say that you don’t have to read the Mortal Instruments nor the Infernal Devices series in order to understand it. Though if you skip those series you will end up being spoiled while reading Lady Midnight, but you do you. If you’re curious to know how to read the series I actually filmed a video on IGTV to present you different ways to do so.

Today I wanted to share with you five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, no matter if you’re a fan or not of the Shadowhunters Chronicles. Ready? Let’s go.

Dear reader,

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

If you know me then you know that mental health is something very close to my heart and that I try to bring awareness towards it every day. I talk a lot about it on my Instagram and always try to be honest in order to help others realising that they aren’t alone. Obviously I had to write a few posts dedicated to it this month.

Today I wanted to present to you all my five favourite books which deal with mental health.

Dear reader,

During the month of April I participated in the first part of the Magical Readathon, which was the O.W.L.s Readathon. I never had that much fun with a monthly long readathon before and as I presented to you in another blog post my TBR for it I thought it would be a great idea to properly wrap up everything I read.

Without further ado here’s my wrap-up of the OWL’s Readathon 2019!

Review | Again, but Better by Christine Riccio

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

The plot

Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?

Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!

Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.
