Recently, I watched Fantastic beasts and where to find them (review coming!) and my friend and me fell deeply in love with Credence (Credence Barebone protection squad!!!) and that reminded me of all the struggles we Fans know and probably can relate to.
You don’t choose to be in a Fandom or to be a Fangirl/Fanboy it just happens 😀
1.Taking every moment in a book or movie serious is one of the perks, we can get lost in stories and flee reality BUT if a beloved character dies or if something really, really bad happens there’s no help for us.
2. The feels can be overwhelming. If that character is just awesome, pretty, asdfghjklskks, not matter what. Well then this is what happens sometimes. Okay a lot.
3. Ever had the situation that everybody around you is judging you because you get way too excited about things? Yeah. Over the moon excitement.
4. Adding to 3. : Ever made a funny reference from a Fandom you’re in and either nobody understands it or is judging you? Oh well.
5. You’re supposed to choose a ship but how is that even possible? HOW? I mean how could you choose between Klaroline, Maroline and Steroline? It’s hard!
Also, ship wars are the worst. So bloody.
6. THE FEELS! In general of course, I mean, why do they have to hurt but at the same time be so wonderful?
7. Social life? What is that? Spending the whole day on twitter, stalking your favourite actors ad actress and watching a ton of interviews is social enough. #stalkingskills
8. Your absolute favourite actor/author or whoever you love doesn’t know you exist. That realization HURTS! Just a little. Sorry.
9. Every Fangirl and Fanboy out there is #teamnosleep. Luckily some of us use concealer 😀
10. The Wifi is down and your best friend calls you because Emma Watson just tweeted something absolutely hilarious and you.just.can’t.read.it.
11.Binge-watching one show after another and totally forgetting that there’s work to do! Damn it!
Can anyone relate to those struggles? What struggles do you know or have to add? Let me know!
2016 is over and what a year it was! Is it just me or was it just as half as long as it would’ve been? I hope you all had a good start into 2017 and celebrated with your friends and family.
Today, I want to tell you (and me) my bookish resolutions for 2017. Do you have any? 🙂
This year, I won’t stress myself out because of reading. I’ll neither force myself to read nor do I have a goal that has to be completed. But more to that later. Reading is a hobby for me, which also means that I shouldn’t pressure myself. I noticed that lot of blogger or booktuber have this issue. What about you?
I also decided to use my bookmarks more often this year. Normally random objects are the victims 😀 (Normally it’s a hair tie).
Goodreads reading goal
As I mentioned briefly, I don’t have a big reading goal this year. I probably will set a really low one because I don’t want to stress out because I still have to read this and that book or a certain amount of books. Another reason is that I’ll do my A-Levels this year and go abroad for 6 months, so I don’t know how many books I’ll get to read.
But I’ll still plan on reading a lot.
As for this blog, I’ll plan on posting more regularly and have fixed days where I pot something. However, I still don’t know which days that will be. How do you plan your blog posts?
Today, I counted my TBR and was surprised that it actually got less! But, do you remember the days when the TBR pile consists of 2 books? That were times.. 😀
So, these are the books I have yet to read and don’t judge me I know there are books on my TBR that shouldn’t be there.. AT ALL. I apologize beforehand if you feel attacked by me because I havent read THE book of 2016! Cause there are loads of them.
DISCLAIMER : Some of those books are in German so I’ll just write down the titles.
So these are the books, I haven’t read yet. In total

Have you read any of these books? If yes, how did you like them? What books haven’t you read yet? And guys I’m really interested in seeing for what book you are judging me the most! 😀
Hey book lovers!
Soooo, recently I was struggling to find a book on my TBR that I was interested in reading because as we all know there are so many books but so little time… I still don’t know what to read after crooked kingdom because it has to be something good, something that helps me getting over a book hangover (probably). Do you know this problem when looking for your next read but being completely overwhelmed by the choice? (Except you don’t have a TBR, which is a lot easier sometimes to be honest!)
Since I can’t decide what to read next, I’d like to ask you guys!
Books that I have at home are: “the winners curse” by Marie Rutkoski, “red rising” by Pierce Brown, “witch hunter” by Virginia Becker, the first book in the geisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo (not quite sure if that can cure a book hangover haha) and “alienated” by Melissa landers.
What woukd you recommend?
Recently, I finished the first book in the “Half Life” Series and been super pumped to write this review for you since then!
Author : Sally Green
Publisher : Viking Books for young readers
ISBN : 0670016780
Genre : Fantasy, YA
Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan’s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers—before it’s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?
I was so keen to read the first book in the trilogy since Mai (when I got it on my London Trip) but haven’t read it since, so it was high time to read it!
However people who are more likey to read plot based books may have to get used to this -very character based- book (but believe me it’s very easy to read this book even if you’re more the plot reader like I am 😉 )Read More »
Today I want to review a book that I actually wanted to review since ages! 😀
Author : Cassandra Clare
Publisher : Margaret K. McElderry
ISBN : 1481426303
Genre : Fantasy, YA
Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.
The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?
When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…ⒸGoodreads
Since this is the conclusion to the Mortal Instruments-Series beware of spoilers!
I think the book ended well even though I thought it was kind of predictable.

I finished reading Harry Potter (the play) a few weeks ago and I thought it would be just right to tell you my opinion since I am a biiiig Potterhead (and proud of it :D)
Authors : J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne
Publisher : Little Brown UK
ISBN : 0751565350
Genre : Play, Fantasy
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

I was very surprised with this book because I did not expect it to be as it as 😀
We know them, we love them. We get a new insight of our beloved characters since they changed over the past 19 years after the final book of the Harry Potter series ended (duh) but I could not find a lot which reminded me of the characters that I used to know. It was very interesting to say how their behaviour changed and also how the kids of our heroes are but it all seemed very strange to me.
All in all, it was a very thrilling story even though it had some things that I had problems with.
It was very interesting to get an all-round view of each character and what they are doing but again, everything seemed to strange and different.
Since this is a play, it was a totally different feeling to read this book. I loved that I almost flew through it ❤
Super easy and fun read.
