… my favourite books of 2017


It’s December 1st. Can you believe that? Gosh the year passed by so quickly. Many things have happened this year and many more books have been read. So just like last year I’ll like to present you my most favourite reads of the year.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This was such a fun yet moving book. The romance between Maddy and Olly was absolutely adorable. Maddy and Olly in general were great. The dialogues were fun. And the format made the books so much more unique.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood + Power by Naomi Alderman

These books have been so strong and empowering. I’m so happy I got to read these books this year because they will definitely stay with me for a very long time. If, for some reason, you haven’t read these books yet, I highly recommend reading them.

Red Threads of Fortune by J. Y. Yang

This was such a wonderful unique book. I can recommend this book to everyone who likes reading Fantasy and wants to read something new.

Hopefully my review will be up soon so I can talk more about this one 🙂

Turtles all the way down by John Green

Waiting so long for a new John Green novel was really worth it because this book was freaking brilliant. I don’t think I have ever read a book that portrayed mental health like this book did. You can see that John knows what he’s talking about and how much of himself he poured into this book.

What were your favourite books of 2017?


.. books I preordered (and can’t wait to read later this year)


Now that we are officially in the second half of 2017 I thought it would be fun to share my pre-orders for the next months with you guys. Enjoy 🙂

The empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud

This is the fifth (and probably last) book in Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series. It’s gonna be published in September but I can’t wait. I need tos book so badly and I need it right now. I NEED to know what’s going on. Continue reading

.. my fictional bucket list


Everyone has this list of things they want to do at least once in their lifetime, dreams they want to follow, goals they want to achieve. I am no different. My bucket list has been in my head for the past years. Until now.

You may have seen my post about my personal bucket list. But as the title already says, this is a different kind of bucket list. This is going to be my fictional bucket list.

.. Bookish Pet Peeves


I know we all have some .. things that drive us crazy about books. Here are some of mine:

Love Triangles or Instalove

Okay this probably makes me sound like I hate romance, but I find nothing more annoying than the main character being stuck in a love triangle or the falling instantly in love.

Movie Covers


Stickers … especially the really sticky ones

.. books I want to read in 2017


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! I wish you all a magical and bookfilled new year!

The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan

Oh boy, it has been years since I read the first few books in this series. But strangely I never finished it.. So why not make 2017 the year I do? The only problem is .. these books are out of print in Germany. So when I was in Rothenburg the other day, roaming this lovely bookstore I found, and saw they had Book 3 and 4 of the collected volume I might have let out a little scream. And now that I also have Book 1 and 2  I can’t wait to get back at it.

Monster Hunter Alpha + Legion by Larry Correia

I’m kinda “buddy-reading” this series with two girls from work. Since I’m only on Book 2 (I’m currently reading it) and they are already on Book 4 they keep teasing me a lot and argh.. I want to dig into these books as soon as possible because they are such fun reads.

 Blue Moon Rising by Simon R. Green

For this year I planned something special with some of my closest friends. One of my dearest friends brought this idea up already in summer ’16 and we were all like “Hey, this is a fun idea” but never sticked to it. But we agreed to actually do it in 2017 – have our own book club. This is the first book we are going to read and I can’t wait to discuss it with them.

Landline (Rainbow Rowell), Nevernight (Jay Kristoff), Yes Please (Amy Poelher), This Savage Song (Victoria Schwab), The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern), Three Dark Crowns (Kendare Blake), The girl with all the gifts (M. Carey) and so many more..

What books are you planning to read this year?
