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!

During the month of April I participated in the first part of the Magical Readathon, which was the O.W.L.s Readathon. I never had that much fun with a monthly long readathon before and as I presented to you in another blog post my TBR for it I thought it would be a great idea to properly wrap up everything I read.
Without further ado here’s my wrap-up of the OWL’s Readathon 2019!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
❥ The plot
Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?
Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!
Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.
Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.

April has been a long, fun and tiring month. A lot of things happened in my life, both bad and good, but I always got up and kept trying to do better, to be better. I am extremely proud of myself for everything I survived this month and recovered from, and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for me.
Without further ado, here is my april wrap-up!

I have always been someone who loved the rain. I have so many amazing memories with it, but especially with my grandma who passed away almost a year ago. She was the only person in my family who loved the rain as much as I do and we would always curl up together next to her fire place with a big blanket and a cup of hot chocolate. She would always say that we were the same person because of it, and I have never stopped loving the rain.
Unlike many people I even like being outside when it’s raining. It sure can be annoying but I love the sound and the smell of it – as long as I have an umbrella I am totally okay with it. Obviously I prefer being indoors, so that’s why I’ll present you today my five favourite things to do on a rainy day.

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!

If you don’t know, June is a very special month: it’s pride month. As a cis straight woman (who still is demisexual), I do not feel as if I belong into the LGBTQIA+ community but I still wanted to write a blog post about it because diversity in today’s literature is very important and should be talked about more, especially online in the book community itself.
I decided to ask people who belong to the book community and the LGBTQIA+ one to recommend me some books with a great rep and which mattered to them in some ways. It was very important for me to let the community talks by itself.
Some of them decided to stay anonymous but they all agreed to tell me their sexuality and gender. I only shared five of them for now, but if you like it I’ll write another blog post about it later on.
