Update! I’m taking a small break

Hey all! As this post says, I’m taking a small break from blogging. By the time this will get published, I’ll have had my first week of college (Update: IT IS HARD. CHRIST. I’ve been studying for hours every day and I’m SO TIRED.) – after 3 damn years of no school or brain activityย at all.

I also want a lot of things for my blog, pretty headers, awesome posts that are more than just the weekly reviews I’m posting now, and all of that can happen – if I don’t feel the pressure of having to have a post ready every week. It sounds like it’s nothing at all, but if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I amย always behind on my reviews, and I still am. I’ll still be writing them in the meantime, and maybe scheduling them, even, but I’ll just not be publishing.


I’ll also still be reading your posts! I love to read about everything you guys write, comment and interact, so I’ll just be that creepy stalker who publishes nothing but still comments on your posts… hehehe.

I’ll also still be active on Twitter and Instagram – or so I hope. Links are listed on the bottom of the post!

Anyway, I hope that college won’t be too hard on me, and that I’ll be able to create some awesome content in the meantime! I hope to not be gone for longer than a few weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

WordPress is a b***h and deleted all my drafts :(

Okay, first of all, again, I’m so sorry I know I said I’d update regularly but, again, life got in the way and I just didn’t post anything on either my blog or bookstagram for 2 months. Now, I had this glorious idea to maybe finish a few drafts (I had quite a few “almost finished”-book reviews ready and some tags), so I opened my WordPress and all my drafts are gone. No idea why, no idea how but anyway, it sucks and I’m quite pissed off right now.

HOWEVER I’ll seriously take some time to fix things, write down what I remember (luckily I have this old-fashioned habit of taking notes while reading and sometimes writing a short summary in a notebook so I’ll only have to find the right notebook (I totally don’t have way too many.. naaahhh) and I can start drafting some posts again! I have the day off Wednesday and Saturday so I’m hoping I’ll get to finish some.

On another note, I just had an entire week off of work to go on vacation with my dad and sisters and it was GLORIOUS. I had 8 days off (originally 9 but of course things went wrong and shit happened and I had to work the last day before leaving so everything got hectic again yay) and spent most of it relaxing. We did a ton of stuff (I was gonna sayย  “I’ll post about it later” but I said that about my vacation to London too and that was in July so… *leaves shamefully*), and I read 3 books, fell asleep on the couch almost every night, and best of all, didn’t think about work for one second in the whole week.

I did catch up on reading all your posts, saw lots of fun tags and things to try, so at least I’ll have enough inspiration haha. I also planned on changing a few things, maybe change the account name since I’m using a different one for my bookstagram (and twitter, although I never really use that any more), and some changes around the layout and such. So far, I haven’t been able to catch up with coding either so it’ll definitely take a while before I can make my own theme.

I also have done quite some shameful book buying lately, and I’m most definitely back on my buying ban, but… I do now have another 30 books that don’t fit on my shelves and I’ve got yet to read, next to the other gazillion books I’ve bought but haven’t read yet???? There was a positive side on this, I swear…

TL;DR: I have yet another excuse as for why I didn’t post for two months and this is the (??? Idk how many) attempt at trying to start posting regularly again xD

This time, I’m not sure how much time it’ll take before I’m back on track, but thank you all for those who are still with me โค (and thank you for the friend that found my blog and made me realize I haven’t posted in months, otherwise it would probably have taken another month or so whoops)

Alright, I’m off to read now (CR: All The Bright Places, and I’mย loving it so far!) โค

Heya guys!! How are you all? I’m back from my vacation to London (which was absolutelyย amazing by the way) whoo!

Because I was an idiot and waited to pack my bags till the last minute, I didn’t have time for scheduling posts either and I didn’t have any wifi or a laptop so that explains my absence… But I’ll catch up with the T5W and Book Traveling Thursdays!

I got back at 11.30pm on Sunday, and had to work the Monday right after. I’ve mostly just unpacked (I boughtย so many things),ย and done laundry so that’s why I’m only now posting. I’ll type up a T5W and Book Traveling Thursday later this night, as well as a post about my vacation because it was amazing (hint: I went to Waterstones ๐Ÿ˜› ).

I’m glad to be back and I’ll be reading all your posts from last week too! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a Book Depository Affiliate!

Hello all! Good news, my wifi is installed so I’ll be back online ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to be catching up with reviews this week and weekend and after that, I hope I can finally go back to my (kind of) regularly posting schedule. And now on to the actual news…

I can now proudly call myself a Book Depository Affiliate! ๐Ÿ˜€ I filled in the forms a while ago, but with my internet gone I didn’t exactly have time to post it. But yay!


I buy about 90% of all my books at Book Depository and I justย love the site. I’d recommend you all to buy your books there, and another great thing:ย they have free shippingย 

So, take a look around the site here, and enjoy yourself! ๐Ÿ™‚
