So here is the first part of this series: let me present you five contemporary reads for the summer!

Five books I want to read this summer πŸ–

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

I have never been the kind of girl to love summer. As a baby I used to be terrified of water (my parents told me it was impossible to make me take a bath and that I would scream even when they went into the sea) and then I started to dislike the heat as a teenager. Eventually I started being okay with everything that made summer: the heat, the sea, mostly ice creams and more. For once I actually am excited about it and to enjoy every second of it! And to do so I obviously made myself a small TBR.

So here are five books I want to read this summer! β˜€πŸŒŠπŸ¦

june wrap-up, favourites and others πŸŒž

Dear reader,

June has been intense. I had to study non-stop for my competition to become a literature teacher (I’ll have the results this week and I am terrified) (I JUST GOT THE NEWS AND I PASSED!!! I AM A LITERATURE TEACHER!!!) and that’s mostly all I did. I stopped watching tv shows because of it, I haven’t read a lot – I just studied and tried to calm my anxiety and depression. I did go out a few times but that was it.

I’m really glad that this month is over because it has been so challenging and I hope that July will be full of good news! No matter what, July means the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, of the third season of Stranger Things and my departure to London for YALC 2019!

So let’s finally wrap-up June! 🌞

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 theΒ Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag, created byΒ ChamiΒ andΒ 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. πŸ’—

All the love,

Clara

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

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.
