The Five Year Plan – Fantasy Challenge #2

Hi folks!

In 2017 I made a post about a challenge I started, which is basically reading 100000 pages of fantasy books in 5 years. I don’t know why I haven’t updated you since then but here I am, coming to you with an update because many things have changed since that post, which you can find here.

Hungarian vs. UK/US covers #3

Hi folks!

It’s been a while since I had a post like this up. You can read the first one here and the second one here. I was planning on posting one sooner but I didn’t find enough covers so I had to gather up some before posting. So, without further do, let’s see the book covers!

A Guide on How to Start Reading in Another Language (eng&hun)

Hi folks!

Recently I was asked what tips I have on starting reading in another language. As you all may know English is my second language, my mother tongue is Hungarian. I know very well how hard it is to start reading in another language. When I was still learning English I bought the 4th book in The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini in order to practice English. However on the first page it became clear that it was too hard for me at the time. And I thought I would put together a little guide for you all who want to try reading in another language and not make this same mistake as I did! This post is going to mainly focus on tips for those who are only starting out or think about starting reading in another language.

Special thanks to my two friends who helped me out with this post, Silvia and Lia!

5 Romance Tropes I Hate

Hi folks!

This should be the first discussion post I publish since I started my blog two years ago. I’ve always felt kind of iffy writing a discussion post, mostly because I did not feel myself to be ellaborate enough to write one. So I decided to just write it in a fun way, and list of a couple of romance tropes that really irritate me when reading a book, especially a YA book.

Before we go into it I would encourage you all to read Lia’s posts on the topic (and also how asexuality, aromanticism is portrayed in the media). Aromanticism: Answering All The Questions You Probably Wanted To Ask But Didn’tRomance in Media, Aphobia & Happy Endings.

Monsta X in Berlin

Hi folks!

Last year I wrote a little post about how VIXX’s Ravi’s concert went down in Vienna. And I decided to write another little something about my experience of Monsta X’s concert in Berlin. Both VIXX and Monsta X are my biggest favourite kpop groups, so this is why I decided to write this post as well. Those who know me (or follow me on Twitter) know how much I love both groups so being able to attend to their concert meant a lot to me.

Blogger Note: Taking A Break

Hi folks!

I hoped I could belt out and power through May without a break, but 5 months into the year, I now feel like it’s time for one. My mid-year exams are coming up, very soon and they already stress me out enough that I basically haven’t really read a book other than reading manga volumes. So it really is time for a break to focus on my exams (and pass them at least, it’s my second uni, I just want to survive, don’t judge me too hard please).

I’m probably going be gone during May, depends on how my studies will be going. For sure though, I will be back on the 11th of June with a blog tour post! So please look out for that! I might even take time off in the first half of June, because the way exam period works in Hungary is, you have about one and a half month to pass all your exams (my exam period starts from the 20th of May and will end with the 30th of June, I believe).

Please take care of yourselves, read a lot and wait for me to be back in June!

Book Unhaul

Hi folks!

So recently with the Marie Kondo show bookish people on Twitter freaked out, taking her words that they have to get rid of their books. I honestly found it rather funny, how seriously it was taken. Unhauling books is not that big of a deal in my opinion. Around the end of last year I wanted to start getting rid of books that I wasn’t interested in anymore, which might have been because the story or the author. Or for the fact that I accidentally bought a copy twice. It happened and I only realised it later on… For me it’s a bit of a slow process, I either sell them again or exchange them for another book but I also gifted a couple away. So, let’s see which books did I unhaul.
