The ABC-Book-Challenge: N

Hi all! I’ve decided to do the ABC-Book_-Challenge too! I have been thinking for a while to find something to write next to my weekly reviews and I thought this might be fun πŸ™‚

I got the idea from Sofii @ A Book A Thought, so thank you! Like her, I don’t know the original creators so if you do, please let me know!

I know I said I could post more regularly, but I also said my schedule for summer break would be crazy, and I wasn’t wrong.. Specifically this month is very hectic. From September 1st to September 4th was Castlefest, a lovely festival we go to. September 6th to September 8th was our treehouse mini-vacation with the kid, packed with activities during the journey to and back home. On September 11th, my boyfriend and I will be on the plane to the United Kingdom at 8am (meaning alarm goes at 3am.. RIP), and we’ll fly back on September 21st. Then, we have a few more days to do ALL THE LAUNDRY, finish everything, and then on September 26th, the “normal” life starts again… who ever said vacation was meant for not-being-busy..? πŸ˜‰Β 

Memorable titles that start with the letter N

  • Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist: a book that I read when I was younger and loved so much, I actually read it another few times. I’ve seen the movie 3 times too.
  • The Night Circus: This book totally astonished me, I really loved how everything was described although some things were overexplained and I didn’t understand the relationship that was going on. Review here
  • Night Watch: another Discworld, yes I know. But this one is special because it’s about Vimes and it really is a beautiful book. I’d recommend it to anyone, but only if you’ve read more Discworld books, specifically The Watch subseries. It makes the book a lot more understandable and better ❀
  • Norse Mythology: I really like mythology books and I read this one within an evening. I loved how the myths were told, and it got me into Neil Gaiman’s writing. Review here

Memorable titles that start with the letter M

  • The Martian: a book that took me by surprise. I loved this book, and I never knew what would happen right until the last page, it was fantastic.
  • Maya und Domenico: an original German book that’s been translated to Dutch. I loved this whole series as a kid and will definitely reread them sometime to bring back the feeling of me and my sister just fangirling over them.
  • Mythos: give me some books about mythology and I’m sold. This one by Stephen Fry was especially fantastic, because, well, Fry, but also because of the way he is telling them. He is using metaphors and comparisons from the current world, and it makes all amazing.
  • The Mechenical: this is a book that I’ve originally had on my TBR but did read in between of writing and posting and it’s done a lot with my mind. It’s quite difficult to explain it without spoiling, but it’s on my list of Reviews-To-Come. It’s definitely a book that’s made me think about certain things in life.

The ABC-Book-Challenge: L

Hi all!Β  πŸ™‚

I haven’t been posting anything for a looong time, and I honestly am done making excuses. I’ve been terribly busy, and both physically and mentally, and I’ve been wanting to write a post on that, too, but as you’d expect, it’s taking me longer than I’d like to put thoughts and feelings into words.

However, I think the ABC challenge is a bit of a mess right now, since my TBR has gone through the roof lately and I’ve added so many books, but I don’t want this to be just another thing that I’ve started and not finished so I’m gonna update the pre-written posts and add some things and keep posting till Z!

I got the idea from Sofii @ A Book A Thought, so thank you! Like her, I don’t know the original creators so if you do, please let me know!

Memorable titles that start with the letter L

  • The Lightning Thief: ah the start of my love for Percy Jackson ❀ this was one of the first book I ever read in English and loved it from the start. Now I just have about 20 of Riordan’s books at home xD
  • The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet: one of my favorites of 2018 as well. I love science-fiction books and this was such a feelgood ❀ Nothing big happened it was just a story set in space about a group of friends but I didn’t get the anxious vibe I usually get when things go wrong in books. I loved it.
  • Last Sacrifice: The last book of the Vampire Academy will always mean a lot to me. The ending of the series is always something that leaves a little mark, and the ending of this series was something I really wasn’t ready for. However, I think the ending was really nice, and fitted so amazingly in the series.

Also, Loveless by Alice Oseman is coming out, and it doesn’t have a cover yet, but it’s been on my TBR ever since she announced it πŸ™‚

I don’t have any books with the letter J and I only have a few for the letter K so this will be a short post.

Memorable titles that start with the letter K

  • Kingdom of Ash: of course the last book in this series was gonna be on this list. I loved this series, and I love how everyone has grown since book 1. There still are some problematic things in this book, and series, and I will definitely put them in the review that I’m still writing, but nonetheless, this series has an epic conclusion.

Memorable titles that start with the letter I

  • I Was Born For This: one of my very favorite titles from 2018 and new auto-buy author. This book was very important for me to realize how we, the fandom, affect a band, or actor, or writer’s life. Review here
  • I’ll Give You The Sun:Β  this book was about a lot of important things, like family, sexuality and the good things in life. I loved how it was told through both Jude and Noah and at the end, I loved how it all came together. Review here
  • The Immortal Rules: I basically love anything by Julie Kagawa, so I’ll always recommend her books. I generally think stories about vampires are a bit meh at times, but this one really took me by surprise. I lied her take on it all, and was sad to find out it was only a trilogy. Review here
