Seasons + Books | My favourite orange and black covers ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿงก

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

I tend to associate every thing with colours – moods, places, songs… and obviously seasons. That’s why I decided to start a new series here on my blog where I associate seasons with two colours, and then present you some of my favourite books which have those colours on the covers. I’m always here for beautiful covers because we can’t lie and say we don’t buy some books because of their looks… At least I know I do!

So I’m starting with Autumn (even though November always feels more winter-y to me, but technically it isn’t Winter yet) and I decided to go with orange and black covers, which is super Halloween-y and spooky but also super cosy, just like fall!

Dear reader,

A few weeks ago the amazing Marie and Nyx @ Drizzle and Hurricane tagged me on the Fall Bucket List Book Tag, which may be the cutest book tag to exist. It took me a while to get to it because I needed to respect my current blog posts schedule, but I’m so glad to finally give it a go!

Without further ado, here is my take on the Fall Bucket List Book Tag.

October wrap-up, favourites and others ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ„

Dear reader,

October has been, overall, a great month. It was my month birthday, so I had tons and tons of fun. The only problem is that my depression also wanted to be a part of the party and joined me at the end of the month to… well, it hasn’t left yet. But I’m working on it and I don’t want to let it ruin my life like it used to do, so here I am, still fighting! And that’s mostly why I still think October has been great, because I’m stronger than ever.

Anyway, here is my wrap-up for my birthday and the spookiest month, October!

Ps: THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR BEING 500 HERE!!!!

DIY your own Halloween reading party ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽƒ

Dear reader,

Halloween isn’t a big thing in France. It was a bit celebrated when I was a child because for years I dressed up with my sister and went trick or treating in our street. But times passed and now almost no one opens the door to children anymore, which is super sad. There aren’t tons of Halloween parties thrown either, whether it comes from friends or from pubs. Over the years I then learned how to celebrate by myself, as I always adored Halloween.

Without further ado, I give you my guide to throw yourself your own Halloween reading party!

Dear reader,

I am finally writing the last part of my Autumn recommendations!

For some people, Fall rhymes with cosy times and for others it goes with everything spooky. But October also is all about school and overall an academic mood. We’re usually still motivated to rock at school because it only started a month ago, and we want to learn everything we can.

Whether you’re still at school/university or not, here are three books to read if you are in an studious mood (and therefor want to read more classics).

Five tv shows to binge watch this Autumn ๐Ÿ–ฅโ˜•๏ธ

Dear reader,

The other someone on Instagram asked me if I could talk more about tv shows and movies on my blog, and they couldn’t have asked me it at a better time as I was already writing this blog post!

You may have understood by now, but I love Autumn. I never know if it’s my favourite season because I love Winter as well (can both be my favourite seasons?) but I wait all year for its return. Obviously during Autumn I tend to read tons of cosy and spooky books, but I also have certain tv shows I love to watch.

Without further ado, here are five tv shows to binge watch this Fall!

Two months into being a teacher, a recap ๐Ÿ“™๐Ÿ“

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

It has officially been almost two months or so since I started teaching literature to teenagers. If you don’t know, at the beginning of 2019 I sat the French teaching exams and actually passed them all (both written and oral exams), and therefor have started teaching since September. I can teach any teens in middle and high school (meaning in France between 11 and 18 years old), but this year I’m teaching two classes of 13 years old. It has been nerve wrecking, it involved a lot of work, both academic one but also on myself, and I’m now on vacations for two weeks.

So let’s recap those two months of teaching literature, shall we?

(For the privacy of my students, my school andย all that go with it I won’t talk in too much details of my job. This is an overview of my thoughts on it, and my thoughts only.)
