A quick break

Dear reader,

I just wanted to let you know that I unfortunately won’t be able to post nor be active around here for the week. It’s very short so I don’t think I had to say anything, but as I had three different posts planned I thought I would still show up and keep you all updated.

Tomorrow and on Thursday I have two six hours long exams which are making me very anxious, plus my birthday is tomorrow (which makes me sad this year as I won’t have my grandma with me) and I’m going to a festival with a friend for four days after that. It’ll all be pretty intense, I’m already tired and wanted to keep blogging but I think it’s best for me to focus on my health, my exams and my friends.

I love you all, and thank you for everything.

See you in a week!

Love always,

Clara

My tips for coping with a bad day 🍂

Dear reader,

Now that I am officially back on my blog I can talk again about mental health and everything that is related to it. Today I wanted to talk about something that has been asked to me a lot on Instagram: how to cope with a bad day.

All the tips I will be giving in this blog post can’t work for everyone and my list won’t be exhaustive. Those are just some tips I usually give to people when they had a bad day, but you can’t believe it’ll work every time.

Anyway, let’s get through some of my tips for coping with a bad day.

Five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

thebookwormofnotredame (1).png

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favourite books in the whole wide world. I have been re-reading it over and over again and apparently I still can’t get enough of it. There’s something about this book that makes me feel better – I even keep it on my desk to make sure that I see it every day and so it will work its magic on me.

The thing is that this book is a win or loose deal: You either adore it or hate it. Indeed, Fangirl is a characters driven novel and there’s no real story within it. That’s why today I wanted to present you five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

My autumn bucket list 🎃🍂

Dear reader,

After all those blog posts saying that Autumn is my favourite season of the year, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I have an entire bucket list for it. Last year Autumn went by way too fast and I haven’t been able to do all I wanted during it. This year I intend to do the most I can and to enjoy every second.

This blog post will be quite short, but I still wanted to be able to share with you all my 2018 Autumn bucket list.

September wrap-up, favourites and other

Dear reader,

September has been a tough month: I felt extremely low, got into a reading slump, moved out from our house to a new appartment, am currently a bit sick but have no time to rest and my suicidal thoughts came back, so I have now new meds and tons of appoitments to the hospital to get better. I’m still proud of me because I didn’t stop trying to get better no matter what and here I am today, ready to welcome my favourite month of the year: October. 🎃🍂🌧

October means my birthday, my best friend’s birthday, Halloween 👻 and the official return of the autumnal weather, but this year it also means going back to Disneyland Paris, flying to London for a very bookish reason which I can’t wait to tell you all about (it’s very important and is actually the proof that my work is now aknowledged worldwide speaking), band rehearsals, going to le Parc Astérix and the Paris Comic Con, participating in Victober, going to a pumpkin patch and to the French premiere of Bohemian Rhapsody. I also happen to have extremely important exams on my birthday, but I should be able to survive and do it all.

Before even starting to plan October, let’s recap all the things that happened to me during September.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Book Tag

thebookwormofnotredame (2).png

Dear reader,

I have been meaning to do this tag this summer ever since my friend Lucie @ Of Wishes and Pages did it but time went by and I had to wait. Well, now is the time!

I love the Mamma Mia movies with all my heart but since I saw the first one quite late I have to say that the second one has a bigger place in my heart. As it deals with grief and family it really helped me as I lost my grand-mother three months ago and it has been the hardest thing I have ever had to live. I cried every time I watched Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and have been obsessed with the young cast, and still am. It made sense that I would have to do the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Book Tag, originally created by Ashley @ Ashleyoutpaged.
