April Wrap Up + currently reading

I read six books during the month of April.

 

4 stars:

 

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer - Rick Riordan The Emerald City of Oz - L. Frank Baum The Midnight Star - Marie Lu 

 

 

3 stars:

 

The Time Machine - Greg Bear,H.G. Wells  The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige  Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices) - Cassandra Clare  

 

 

 

I'm also currently reading 3 books. I'm 20% into The Game - Terry Schott  which is really great so far. I'm also listening to Second Chance Summer on Audible, a book I've been meaning to read for ages and I'm enjoying it a lot! And I'm almost done with In the Dark, in The Woods which is really creepy and disturbing. I like it!

 

I've also watched a lot of series recently, which is why I read less this month. I finished Orange is the new black and am desperatly waiting for the next episodes. I also just started Riverdale, which is quite cool. And The 100 is back!!

 

What have you read this month? Anything good?

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Line.

Staying Together and Running Apart | An Ode to 2016

 

2016 was a year of contradictions. 


We said goodbye to many artists who made the world a better place, including but not limited to Prince, Carrie Fisher, George Michael, and Alan Rickman. 

We said hello to great movies and entertainment, like Stranger Things, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Moana. Also, Hamilton the Musical continued its streak into fame. 

We got an American Authors album that rocked my mind. 

We got a president-elect who is pushing the boundaries of our nation. 

The book blogging universe exploded several times from scandal, fraud, and dishonesty. Racism and poor representation burned through social media. The call for diverse books, authors, readers, and editors was met with strong disagreements. 

The book blogging universe exploded with support for one another. Events like DiversityDecBingo and Loveathon shared the blogger love. Countless bloggers campaigned for diversity and representation on every platform available. 

The highs and lows were reflected in every area of life, especially in my reading goals and accomplishments.

Favorites - February 2016

Can you believe it’s almost March? It feels like I just celebrated the New Year. I want to be a little kid again where time seemed to stand still. 23 days until Christmas took FOREVER back then. And now? One blink and it is already spring.

 

This month I read 2 books and listened to 3 audiobooks. I’m halfway through The Rose Society by Marie Lu but I can’t seem to get into this book. Maybe I’m just not in the mood for fantasy right now.

 

My favorites this month:

 

Books

Kings Rising by C. S. Pascat

I absolutely loved this last installment of the trilogy. I even canceled my book order for the paperback because it took too long to arrive and bought it as an ebook, so I could start sooner.

 

Music

Shake It Out by Florence and the Machine

I’m currently playing the Cerimonials album up and down. But my favorite is definitely Shake It Out.

 

TV Show

Criminal Minds

I’m back watching the new episodes of Criminal Minds. Who knows why I find series killers so interesting…

 

Movie

Joy

I was positively surprised by this film. While I love Jennifer Lawrence I expected this movie to drag a little bit. And with 120 minutes this movie is not the shortest. But I was completely pulled into the storyline. When the end came I was a little bit caught off-guard. I didn’t think this movie would get to me so much.

 

How was your month? Are you looking forward to spring?

Favorites - January 2016

 

The first month of 2016 has passed by and you wonder what has happened in those 31 days? Well, I am currently highly motivated to organize my life. Thank you, youtube! No seriously, I watched some very interesting videos on youtube and now I am motivated to not only organize and structure my daily life a little bit more but also to set some life goals.

 

Other than that I have had a good reading month. I had a one-week-vacation and I used it to be lazy as f***. This means I read 4 books this month and listened to 2 audiobooks. I am very happy with myself.

 

This month’s favorites:

 

Books

Winter by Marissa Meyer

This was an easy choice. I love this series. It has become one of my all times favorites. And Winter, even though it is 800 pages long, was amazing.

 

Music

I Found by Amber Run

Okay, so I know that this is not a new song but I just discovered it. It seems to be on every single playlist on 8tracks. Don’t get me wrong. I totally get it. This song is fantastic but why have I never heard it before?

 

TV Show

Der Lehrer

This is a German TV Show that I discovered last year. This month the new season started and I just love the humor of this show. It’s pretty much a TV show about an unconventional teacher and even though it is hilarious it always has an important message in each episode, as well.

 

Movie

Pearl Harbor

I thought long and hard about this one. I watched “The 5th Wave” this month and while I liked the movie, it wasn’t outstanding. I watched Pearl Harbor for the millionth time on TV this month. I love this movie. I still cry every time I watch it. The story is great, the music amazing, and I had a huge crush on Danny when I was a teenager.

(Fun fact: when I watched the movie in the movie theater back when it came out, I already knew how the story ended since I had let myself be spoiled because I thought I would never watch it anyway. How wrong I had been…)

 

Have you seen "The 5th Wave"? Did you like it? How was your start in 2016? Let me know!
