Dear reader,

I never said it here but I always loved Christmas movies. What I mean by Christmas movies, of course, are the ones which are badly made with a poor storyline and bad acting. I’m always happy to watch a good and well produced Christmas movie, but I’m mostly here for the cringy ones! And I know I’m not alone with this.

Today I wanted to present you three Christmas movies I am dying to watch this Winter!

Ps: Excuse me for not posting last week, I am under a lot of work and needed a quick break from blogging!

Seasons + Books | My favourite orange and black covers πŸ–€πŸ§‘

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

I tend to associate every thing with colours – moods, places, songs… and obviously seasons. That’s why I decided to start a new series here on my blog where I associate seasons with two colours, and then present you some of my favourite books which have those colours on the covers. I’m always here for beautiful covers because we can’t lie and say we don’t buy some books because of their looks… At least I know I do!

So I’m starting with Autumn (even though November always feels more winter-y to me, but technically it isn’t Winter yet) and I decided to go with orange and black covers, which is super Halloween-y and spooky but also super cosy, just like fall!

October wrap-up, favourites and others πŸŒ§πŸ„

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

October has been, overall, a great month. It was my month birthday, so I had tons and tons of fun. The only problem is that my depression also wanted to be a part of the party and joined me at the end of the month to… well, it hasn’t left yet. But I’m working on it and I don’t want to let it ruin my life like it used to do, so here I am, still fighting! And that’s mostly why I still think October has been great, because I’m stronger than ever.

Anyway, here is my wrap-up for my birthday and the spookiest month, October!

Ps: THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR BEING 500 HERE!!!!

DIY your own Halloween reading party πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ

Dear reader,

Halloween isn’t a big thing in France. It was a bit celebrated when I was a child because for years I dressed up with my sister and went trick or treating in our street. But times passed and now almost no one opens the door to children anymore, which is super sad. There aren’t tons of Halloween parties thrown either, whether it comes from friends or from pubs. Over the years I then learned how to celebrate by myself, as I always adored Halloween.

Without further ado, I give you my guide to throw yourself your own Halloween reading party!

Two months into being a teacher, a recap πŸ“™πŸ“

thebookwormofnotredame-2.png

Dear reader,

It has officially been almost two months or so since I started teaching literature to teenagers. If you don’t know, at the beginning of 2019 I sat the French teaching exams and actually passed them all (both written and oral exams), and therefor have started teaching since September. I can teach any teens in middle and high school (meaning in France between 11 and 18 years old), but this year I’m teaching two classes of 13 years old. It has been nerve wrecking, it involved a lot of work, both academic one but also on myself, and I’m now on vacations for two weeks.

So let’s recap those two months of teaching literature, shall we?

(For the privacy of my students, my school andΒ all that go with it I won’t talk in too much details of my job. This is an overview of my thoughts on it, and my thoughts only.)
