Dear reader,

Now that I am back on my blog I decided to catch up on all the tags I missed. Two months ago, the sweet Andrea @ Andrea’s Nirvana tagged me on the Blogger Recognition Award, so that’s what we’ll go through today! A big thank you to Andrea who also is an amazing blogger.

Without further ado, let’s go back to where it all started

August wrap-up, favourites and other

Dear reader,

I know that once again, I disappeared from my blog. For once, I do have an explanation for it: I finished my thesis! At the beggining of the summer I really thought that I could do it all: read, blog and write my thesis. Well, I was wrong and I had to take two weeks of vacations to work on it properly. It was hard, there were moments I thought I couldn’t do it but as it was my main goal for the month I pushed myself and did it. As I am writing this I only have to add some corrections and I’ll be able to hand it back in a week.

But since we are not here to only talk about my thesis, let’s go back to August and see what I read and loved!

Wrapping up YALC 2018

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, I left for London two weeks ago to go to YALC, a book fair taking place at the London Comic Con. It has been one of my dreams for years to go to an international book fair as I only read in English and when I first heard of YALC last year I promised myself that in 2018 I would go – and look, I did it!

I still can’t believe that it’s now over and that I really went there – it was such a crazy experience and I can’t wait to do it all over again next year. Of course I took many pictures while I was there and even though I already posted my vlog on my IGTV I decided to wrap it up here as well! Without further ado, let’s jump right into my wrap-up of YALC 2018.

My favourite booktubers

Dear reader,

I am writing to you today because a lot of people have been asking me on Instagram who my favourite booktubers were.

Now you have to know that I have always been watching booktube videos, and that’s actually the reason why I started my bookstagram account in the first place. I first started to watch booktube videos when I was around 14-16 years old and ever since that day I never stopped. I watch a least one video per day and it always calms me down – booktube really helps me a lot in my daily life and I started to rely on some of those people to help me after a bad day. I wanted to start my own channel for a while but as I was insecure about my looks and accent I went for Instagram instead, which I’m very happy about today.

Without further ado, let’s jump into it and talk about my favourite booktubers.

July wrap-up, favourites and other

Dear reader,

Surprisingly, July has been a great month. It had its down times, I am still grieving but I also did a lot of things and had so much fun. I started reading again, I finally worked a lot on my thesis and am actually proud of what I’m doing and started going out again, well not partying but seeing my friends, going to the movies and to Disneyland. I also went back to London during July and went to YALC, and it was all a dream. I am very proud of all the progress I made because I was still sad and anxious but I can feel myself changing and improving nonetheless.

Without further ado, let’s go back to July and see what I read and loved!

My favourite inspirational quotes

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, I have a thing for quotes. Always had. As I have a great memory I tend to memorise as many as I can and it keeps me going. I even wrote down some on post-its and put them on my mirror to never forget some words. It always makes me happy to reread my favourite quotes and also makes me realise how powerful words are. That’s why I always share one whenever I post on Instagram – I love how words can make us feel better.

As quotes inspire me every day, I decided to share ten of my favourite ones – the ones which keep me motivated and help me on a daily basis when it comes to my mental health.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Sensory Reading Memories

thebookwormofnotredame (21).png

Dear reader,

The theme of this week is “books with sensory reading memories“, meaning books that are linked to very specific moments, places etc. As I tend to have a lot of memories with books I thought that it would be great to list some of those which were there during some very special moments in my life.

If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which I organised in a chronological order!
