Stranger Things Book Tag

strangerthings-booktag

Hello Guys!
I haven’t done a Tag-post in ages so when I came across the Stranger Things Book Tag, I got really excited! As you know, I recently finished watching the show and now I don’t know what to do with my life anymore😛
However, I found this awesome Tag over at Kat’s blog Life and Other Disasters (and also the cool graphics). Since she told everyone to consider themselves tagged, I take the chance – here we go!

THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT LEFT YOU INTRIGUED AND SLIGHTLY CONFUSED

A Game of Thrones - CoverFor this question I’ll go with A Game of Thrones, the first book in George R. R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire. The book is a masterpiece but there are so many characters and plot strings, you will most definitely end up confused.
To be honest, it took me the entire first two books to completely figure out who’s who and what’s going on.
However, I was hooked from page one and can’t wait for Martin to finally finish the next part! Continue reading

Movie Mania: Suicide Squad

Hey Guys!

Today were gonna tackle THE movie everyone is talking about. The world waited long for Suicide Squad to be released – now it’s out and from what you hear it’s rather disappointing. But is that really true?

 

The Plot:
Gotham’s finest assortment of bad guys (and girls) is recruited for a rather tough job. Some evil witch (who should actually be crumbling to dust) is possession an archeologist and also just decided to take over the world. Well, looks like a jolly good afternoon… Continue reading

University, Failure and Letting Go

Hey Guys!
After many reviews its time for a more personal post. I haven’t written something like this in a while, but there’s no better way to get it off my chest than sharing it with you!

 

So what’s the problem?
I like to be in control. I know what I want, I know where I’m going and I’m making it work. I’ve always been like that. Even when something happened that shook my plans, I always managed to get back in control.
But this time it’s different.
So, I was in my last semester at University (at least that’s what I thought). Everything was going according to plan and I was already planning on starting  with my master studies in autumn.
However, in June shit hit the fan. I’m not gonna go into detail here – I’ll just say there was a “misunderstanding” with a professor which means I’m now 6 ECTS points short of graduating. Continue reading

Book Review: Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

Hey Guys!
It’s book review time😀
I actually read today’s book some time ago, more specifically at the end of June, after my last exam was over and I was waiting for my train. Kat from Life and Other Disasters had run a giveaway back then and I was one of the lucky winners. So thanks again and here’s what I thought!

 

The Plot:
Elena is super excited. The new Star Wars movie is about to come out and she’s determined to camp in line –  not to get a ticket as you can do that online nowadays – but for the experience. Things don’t quite go according to plan, but Elena ends up having the time of her life… Continue reading

TV Show Spotlight: Stranger Things

Hey Guys!
The show I want to present today is one you probably already heard of. Stranger Things is what everybody is talking about right now. Although the first season came out only a month ago, it’s already one of Netflix’ most successful productions!

 

 

What is it about?
It’s 1983. Mike, Lucas, Dustin and Will are having a great time playing dungeons and dragons. Life is good. But on his way home Will vanishes. It soon turns out that this is not a regular crime but something far more mysterious. You won’t believe your own eyes…. Continue reading

Laied back Summer Sunshine Playlist (Playlist #3)

Hello folks!

As is currently is holiday time, I decided to share some songs with you today. These tracks always set me into the beach mood right away. I hope you enjoy!
