Dear reader,

I wanted to write this blog post in time for Valentine’s Day but as I am only getting back to blogging I am only posting it now.

Books and literature have brought me so much in my life. They taught me a lot, made me dream a lot but also showed me what was good about myself, that I wasn’t abnormal and that I deserved to feel loved. That’s why today I want to present you five books that me to love myself first. Continue reading Five books that taught me to love myself first 💗

My favourite things to do on a rainy day 🌧

thebookwormofnotredame (8).png

Dear reader,

I have always been someone who loved the rain. I have so many amazing memories with it, but especially with my grandma who passed away almost a year ago. She was the only person in my family who loved the rain as much as I do and we would always curl up together next to her fire place with a big blanket and a cup of hot chocolate. She would always say that we were the same person because of it, and I have never stopped loving the rain.

Unlike many people I even like being outside when it’s raining. It sure can be annoying but I love the sound and the smell of it – as long as I have an umbrella I am totally okay with it. Obviously I prefer being indoors, so that’s why I’ll present you today my five favourite things to do on a rainy day.

Dear reader,

April is a very exciting month, but it’s the month the O.W.L.s readathon is taking place. If you don’t know what it is, I didn’t know either before last month. I saw everyone talking about it last year but wasn’t curious enough to really look for it. Well, now that I know what it is I can assure you that I am obsessed with it.

Without further ado, let’s jump into my TBR for the O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon 2019.

Dear reader,

It feels so weird to blog again. Do I have the time to do so? Not really. But I still want to take it because I miss it. I can’t say I’m fully back because my life is pretty hectic at the moment and I don’t know if I will ever have the time to write enough blog posts before responsabilities start catching me up again, but here I am nonetheless.

Anyway, I am back today with another wrap-up post!

Blog Tour | My review of Wicked Saints

I received this book in exchange for an honest review as part of a blog tour.

THE PLOT

“Prepare for a snow-frosted, blood-drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love ends up being the nightmare.” – Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.

“This book destroyed me and I adored it.”- Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

The “Hey! I’m alive!” post

Dear reader,

I am still alive. I know, shocking right?! I thought it might be good for me to tell you all that I haven’t disappeared yet.

Actually, as I want to become a literature teacher I have to pass what we call here in France the CAPES competition: basically you first have written exams and if you’re one of the best you go to the oral exams and then if you’re one of those best, then congrats you are a teacher.

Yeah, so…

The written exams are in a week. *panic*

I am okay but all I do is studying and it helps me dealing with my stress and anxiety. Because of it I didn’t have the time to blog. Hopefully I’ll find some time again afterwards, but no matter what I’ll be back as soon as I can.

But I wanted to come by and to check in today to actually thank you all. We are more than 400 people on this page and it’s a lot!

Thank you for trusting me and for making it all so exciting.

I love you all, and will see you all soon.

Love always,

Clara

My seven months recovery journey

Sans titre 1.png

Dear reader,

During June of 2018 I spent a month at the hospital, mostly for my eating disorder, but also for many other little problems I have. They made me realize I also struggle with OCD and two months after leaving my depression was making a come back. It has been seven months since it all happened and I really wanted to take the time to write about my recovery because it sure hasn’t been a straight line, but I’m still making progress and I am definitely going somewhere.

So, here is my seven months recovery journey.
