Bookshelf Tour #38 // The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

the girl in the tower

The court of the Grand Prince of Moscow is plagued by power struggles and rumours of unrest. Meanwhile bandits roam the countryside, burning the villages and kidnapping its daughters. Setting out to defeat the raiders, the Prince and his trusted companion come across a young man riding a magnificent horse.

Only Sasha, a priest with a warrior’s training, recognises this ‘boy’ as his younger sister, thought to be dead or a witch by her village. But when Vasya proves herself in battle, riding with remarkable skill and inexplicable power, Sasha realises he must keep her secret as she may be the only way to save the city from threats both human and fantastical…

My resolutions for 2019 // Let’s have a chat

Another year is over. My 2018 felt weird at times, certainly got more stressful in the end, but still brought me some very wonderfull moments. I made the first steps into a potential wrestling career, have grown as a person and learned so much more about myself.

And now I shall make plans for the new year. As in the past years I wanted to share my resolutions with you all, hoping sharing will keep me on track.

Have you made resolutions for this year already? Let me know 🙂

hello 2019

Moving home

The end of January marks 19 months in London. I have stayed longer than I had originally intended and I think it’s about time I say goodbye to this magnificent city. Of course it is not going to be a goodbye forever. I surely will visit the UK on holidays or to see some exciting Wrestling shows. But for now I will be leaving it.

As I’m moving back home to Germany I will also move from my hometown to another city. The city of Frankfurt. This city is very dear to me and the perfect place to start this exciting new chapter in my life.

 

My own bookshop

And that get’s me to my next point on the list. As I may have hinted a few times already, I want to open my own bookshop. I know it’s not going to be an easy task. But I want to finally start to bring this dream of mine to life. Over the past I have been making notes of how I want my shop to look like, what I want and what I don’t want to sell and just everything I want my little shop to stand for.

So this year, the year of 2019, I want to save as much money as I possibly can to make this come true.

 

More reviews

This is something I always wanted to do, but either never had the time or was didn’t have more to say then “I liked this book”. But i want to work on it this year. I want to write  a review for every book I read. Even if it is only a Mini-Review.

So hopefully I can fill this blog with as many book reviews as possible.

 

Thinning my TBR

Many of you may struggle with the same thing. There are just too many unread books on my bookshelves. I want to work on this in the new year. Obviously this is no “Book buying ban”, because to be honest … I get weak when I see a good book and easily break the ban. So I will allow myself to buy books, but will focus on reading books from my bookshelf first.

 


And these are my resolutions for 2019. What are your resolutions?
