I’m going to Germany! | Summer TBR

I’m flying to Germany, which is exciting – I’ve been waiting for this vacation for months. Unfortunately, this means that my blog is going to be a mess. I don’t know how much or when I’m going to be able to blog. I’m going to Germany to visit my friends, so I wanna spend time with them, not hide in a room and blog all day.

5 Reasons Why

The Name of the Wind: 5 reasons why you should read it

I didn’t do my ‘5 reasons why’ post last week, so now I feel like I don’t even know how this works anymore.

Today I wanna share 5 reasons why you should read the amazing high-fantasy novel The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, which is the first book in the Kingkiller series, followed by The Wise Man’s Fear.

Queer Movie Friday

Queer Movie Friday: Philadelphia | Review

I am so tired, you guys. I stayed over at a friend’s and then had to drive all the way home, and driving is still really exhausting for me, since I got my licence only ten days ago. So I slept all day, and now I am in one of those I-just-woke-up-from-a-nap moods, and honestly all I wanna do is go back to sleep.

But I have a blog that I’ve worked on a lot in the past months, and the last thing I want is for it to become another one of my abandoned projects, so here I am, blogging! The movie I am reviewing today is not the one I had planned originally – I wanted to talk about a very different film, but then my mom randomly said she wanted to watch Philadelphia, and I got excited because it seemed like the perfect way to combine family-time and blogging-research.

Philadelphia is a movie from the 90s, about a gay man who is fired from his law firm for having AIDS.

My biggest book hangovers

Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks posted this about a month ago and I thought it looked like a lot of fun and an interesting topic┬áto write about. Definitely check out her original post, without it this one wouldn’t exist after all! (I hope you don’t mind that I’m doing this, I have no intention of stealing your idea, just thought it really looked fun!)

If you don’t know what a book hangover is, it’s that feeling you get after finishing a really good book, like it’s all you can think about and you feel terrible because it’s over, and a part of you is convinced that you’ll never be able to enjoy another book again.
