My 5 last 5 stars reads of 2019

thebookwormofnotredame (3).png

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!

On re-reading books

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

For two days in May, my friend Roxanne and I decided to re-read the first Harry Potter book. We had so much fun doing it that I thought of writing a blog post about why I love re-reading books so much, as I re-read at least one Harry Potter book per year and have re-read my favourite book Lady Midnight six times already.

So lock your sit belts and get ready to discuss everything about re-reads!

may wrap-up, favourites and others 🌿

Dear reader,

May has been a great month, and for one reason only: I PASSED THE WRITTEN EXAMS OF MY COMPETITION. Basically, if you don’t know, to become a literature teacher in France (to teach 11-18 years old) you have to pass a “competition” (un concours in French). First you have to pass the written exams (only the best are chosen) and then you have to pass the oral exams (again, only the best are chosen). So basically in a few weeks I’ll be taking the oral exams and if everything goes well I may be a literature teacher in September! How crazy is that?! (I also validated by second semester, woop woop!)

Obviously many other good things happened and I’m proud to say that my life is way healthier today. I’m not 100% okay but I’m getting there. At least July will be brighter!

So without further ado, let’s jump right in and wrap-up the month of May.

Dear reader,

I have talked again and again about Holly Bourne on my blog, so I don’t think it’s a surprise that I’ve decided to write yet another blog post about her.

As I did once, here is a series of mini reviews, but make it all about Holly Bourne.

Blog tour | Kinsgbane by Claire Legrand 🔥

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

The plot of the first book in the Empirium series, Furyborn

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable—until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world—and of each other.

Five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, Lady Midnight is my favourite book of whole time. Ever since I first read it for the first time in January of 2017 I then read it five more times. Did I ever get bored of it? Absolutely not.

As this book is a part of the very long Shadowhunters Chronicles I have to say that you don’t have to read the Mortal Instruments nor the Infernal Devices series in order to understand it. Though if you skip those series you will end up being spoiled while reading Lady Midnight, but you do you. If you’re curious to know how to read the series I actually filmed a video on IGTV to present you different ways to do so.

Today I wanted to share with you five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, no matter if you’re a fan or not of the Shadowhunters Chronicles. Ready? Let’s go.
