Dear reader,

If you don’t know, this year I participated in the second part of the Magical Readathon, which was called the N.E.W.T.s Readathon. I participated in the first part back in April and totally rocked it! Well, I had just as much fun with this second part in August and it helped me find my love reading again.

Without further ado, here’s my wrap-up of the N.E.W.T.s Readathon 2019!

Book Blogging Firsts Tag

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

Before starting this blog post, I would like to shout that MY AUTUMN THEME IS OFFICIALLY BACK AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. Okay, now we can go back to normal.

A few weeks ago, the sweet Lauren @ Twenty Seven Letters tagged me to do the Book Blogging Firsts tag (a big thank you to her, and please check out her blog, she’s really amazing!). It’s to be noted that this blog isn’t my first one. I had my very first blog at 11 years old and it was all about Emma Watson (I spent hours on Photoshop, creating designs every time we had new pictures of her). I then had another one about Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez around the same age. And then after years of writing fan fictions and playing in Harry Potter Role Playing Games (on MSN, on Facebook, on forums etc) and all that jazz on the Internet, I came back to the blogging life at 19 years old, but joined the studyblr community on Tumblr. So The Bookworm of Notre-Dame wasn’t my first real steps into the blogging world, but I’ll talk about this one for this particular tag because, well… My Emma Watson blog is part of my secret dark past. (Just kidding, I just don’t think it’s relevant for all the questions.)

So, here we go for the Book Blogging Firsts tag!

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!

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

december + january wrap-up, favourites and others 🌨

Sans titre 1.png

Dear reader,

I know that I haven’t been the most consistent and active blogger. What made it worse was that my computer has been broken while I was at the hospital this summer. Ever since it has been harder to blog, even though I really wanted to. Well, I am happy to say that I am now back and that I have a brand new computer. I can now finally blog at home and at peace, and I have so many ideas that I can’t wait to share with you all.

As I disappeared for a while I decided to start my comeback with a wrap-up for the months of both December and January. I hope that it’s okay with you all. I missed you and am so happy to be back!

Without further ado, let’s jump into my December and January wrap-up!
