Dear reader,

I am so excited to be writing this blog post because it’s one of my favourites to post every year. In 2017 I did the tag on YouTube, but last year I did it here and I’m now obsessed with the idea of having blog posts to re-read to be able to see when certain books came into my life.

So without further ado, let’s dive right into the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag, created by Chami and Ely!

I’m going missing for a week or so!

Dear reader,

This weekend I will take the oral exams of my competition to become a literature teacher. I am awfully nervous and my depression has really suffered from it. Because of it, I haven’t been able to focus enough to create content for here. I decided to take a quick break but I will be back from posting in July! I’ll miss you all. 💗

All the love,

Clara

5 books I loved with a character from the LGBTQIA+ community 🌈

Dear reader,

June is Pride Month, so it made sense that I would have to write a little bookish blog post related to it!

Though I do not identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community (I am demisexual/asexual and though there are a lot of thoughts on our place in the community I never felt as if I belonged to it) I still believe it’s important to talk about it, especially during June.

Last year I let people from the community talks for themselves and recommend some books to which they identify. This year I decided to share with you all five books I loved which has a character from the LGBTQIA+ community.

My 5 last 5 stars reads of 2019

Dear reader,

I haven’t found many new all time favourites this year so far, but I did read some amazing books to which I still gave 5 stars on Goodreads! I used to be the type of person who would give 5 stars to pretty much all the books but I’m now more picky when it comes to it. I guess growing makes me being more judgmental while reading (that, and my literary studies).

That’s why I thought it’ll be fun to present to you all the last 5 books I gave 5 stars to!

On re-reading books

Dear reader,

For two days in May, my friend Roxanne and I decided to re-read the first Harry Potter book. We had so much fun doing it that I thought of writing a blog post about why I love re-reading books so much, as I re-read at least one Harry Potter book per year and have re-read my favourite book Lady Midnight six times already.

So lock your sit belts and get ready to discuss everything about re-reads!

may wrap-up, favourites and others 🌿

Dear reader,

May has been a great month, and for one reason only: I PASSED THE WRITTEN EXAMS OF MY COMPETITION. Basically, if you don’t know, to become a literature teacher in France (to teach 11-18 years old) you have to pass a “competition” (un concours in French). First you have to pass the written exams (only the best are chosen) and then you have to pass the oral exams (again, only the best are chosen). So basically in a few weeks I’ll be taking the oral exams and if everything goes well I may be a literature teacher in September! How crazy is that?! (I also validated by second semester, woop woop!)

Obviously many other good things happened and I’m proud to say that my life is way healthier today. I’m not 100% okay but I’m getting there. At least July will be brighter!

So without further ado, let’s jump right in and wrap-up the month of May.
