What’s on my Reading List for Fall 2015?

The days are already getting shorter and you can clearly tell that fall is just around the bend. Time to go over my reading list for a comfy autumn!


1. Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine #3):
Going over this list, it seems like fall will be my season of series. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of them. I have to wait until the end of September before it will be published but I’m already excited. I love the first two parts and can’t wait to read on about those kids! And I want to see more of the (sometimes creepy, sometimes charming) authentic old photographs in the book.


2. The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling: Continue reading

Time To Talk About Books: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

This novel written by Jeffrey Eugenides was published in 1993. It tells the story of the five Lisbon sisters who commit suicide. The story is set in the 1970 and is told by a few guys who once admired the girls from afar and try to contemplate their life years later.

The Plot:

the virgin suicides

The Lisbon girls, Cecilia, Lux, Bonnie, Therese and Mary, life with their parents who are quite strict.

Blog Challenge: Somewhere you’d like to move or visit

This is my #4.

There are many place I’d love to visit. I’ve always wanted to get away from here, when we were on a trip with school and all the other kids were homesick, I was sad because I knew I had to go back home. Don’t get me wrong, I love my home and my family but the place I live in makes me sick. This small town gives me the feeling of suffocating, whenever I get out of here I feel relieved, I feel like I can breathe. Continue reading

Blog Challenge: A quote you try to live by

This is my third post for the blog challenge =)

My favourite quote of all time is “I’d rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.” by Kurt Cobain.

I like it a lot because being who you are is really important. You’ll never be happy if all you do is try to be someone else and try to please everyone around you. It’s important that you don’t change because of others and that you do what you like no matter if everyone hates you for it.

Blog Challenge: What you hope your future will be like

So this is my second post in this challenge. I decided to do it because the last one was about looking back and I think now it’s time to face the future.

The first thing I wish for is that I can get away from here. I’m living in this small town at the end of the world and I feel like suffocating here.  My plan for getting out of here is quite easy: I want to go to university in a big city and I already am trying to get that done. I decided for a subject to study at university and I started to check out places to stay at. What I really would have liked to do is studying abroad. Continue reading
