Dear reader,

If you don’t know,Β Dracula by Bram Stoker is one of my favourite books of all time, which is kinda funny as I hated it when I first read it (I was 12 years old and had to read an abridged version for school). But it all changed when I had to read it for university, the whole text this time. I fell in love with it and then have been re-reading it quite a few times over the years. Obviously, I have to re-read it this October and surprisingly a lot of people told me they wanted to join me.

That’s why I’m officially launching aΒ Dracula readalong for October, called “A Vampire at Notre-Dame”.

Dear reader,

Last year I came up with my autumn bucket list because fall is my favourite season and, like Aerosmith put so well, I didn’t want to miss a thing. Ever since I’ve been doing it for every season (or tried to) and it’s been a blast to check on it every so and then, to see what I’ve been doing and if I’ve been making the most out of every season.

Here is why I’m presenting you today my autumn bucket list for 2019!

Three musicals to listen to this autumn 🎧 πŸŽƒ

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

I have been asked over and over again on Instagram to write a blog post to recommend musicals. And the time has finally come!

If you do not know, I am aΒ huge Broadway fan. I have been ever since I was 11 years old I think, which is when I joined my school’s choir. Before that I used to be obsessed with French musicals (well, I still am). Anyway, musicals have been a huge part of my life because they have always been there. I have a musical for every little thing that has happened to me and I don’t think it’ll ever change.

So that’s why today I wanted to finally recommend to you three musicals I think would be perfect to listen to this autumn!

Gilmoreathon: My TBR and others β˜•οΈ

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

A few days ago, Olivia @ Liv’s Library, Desi @ Pastel Pages and Mackenzie @ Mackenzie Lane announced that they were hosting a two weeks long Gilmore Girls readathon. I’ve been loving this tv show for years now (the joke is that after watching it for more than five years I still haven’t finished it, but I’m finally eight episodes away from the end) and have been meaning to do another fun readathon after loving way too much the Magical Readathon 2019.

On this post I’ll tell you all about my TBR for it but also all the fun activities I planned next to it!

Suicide Prevention Month | Five books which will make you feel less alone πŸ’›

TW// mentions of suicide in the introduction

Dear reader,

When it comes to mental health, I have only been honest around here. If you have been reading me for a while you may then know that I tried to commit suicide several times in my life. If I talk about it so freely online, it’s only because I wish I would have found others talking about it when I was younger and when I was feeling alone. Well, as it is Suicide Prevention Month, I thought it was only normal to dedicate a blog post to it.

I didn’t want to trigger anyone with this blog post so instead of recommending books which dealt with suicide (I can never read those books, so that’s why I avoided it) I decided to recommend five books which will hopefully make you feel less alone and maybe bring you hope.

My last 5 stars reads in aesthetics πŸŒŸ

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

It has been hard for me this year to find new favourites. As time passes I become more and more critical when it comes to books. That’s why I wanted to honour some of my last 5 stars reads on this blog post, to maybe make you want to pick them up too. Some I gave five stars because they blew my mind, some because they entertained me until the end, others even because they made me cry and feel represented…

So here we go for my last 5 stars reads, but in aesthetics!

Warning: None of those pictures are mine, I found them all on Pinterest. I apologize for not having found who took them originally.
