2019 is over and it’s time for another summary of what I’ve gotten around reading. I haven’t had the best year of my life so I’m happy it’s over and I’m so ready for 2020. Reading wise though, I think it’s safe to say that I had quite a nice year. This year again I passed reading 100 books, which is crazy but I’m really happy about it. I got more into audiobooks as well, I read some amazing books, I got to meet Leigh Bardugo too! I honestly can’t wait to see what amazing books 2020 will bring for me.
This year too I had a yearly TBR, which again did not go as well as I hoped it would… But I still got around reading some from it! This post is going to look very similar to last year’s, which if you haven’t seen you can find here.
This year I read 112 books, 30664 pages. Quite nice numbers!

It’s this time of the year again! This is the type of post that’s turning into a tradition too on my blog. You can read my post from last year here and from the previous year here. It’s always fun, looking back at the books you’ve read during the year. Maybe that’s why I love doing this type of post too. Now, let’s see which were my favourite books this year!

I return to you with another tag that I’ve done last year and I’d love to do it again, this year. If you haven’t seen it yet, here you can check out my answers from last year. The tag was originally created by my dear friend, Sarah. You can find the original post here.

Since it’s December and Christmas is nearing I wanted to post topics that are related to Christmas and what is better than gifting books? I really like gifting books to others so when I saw this post of Aoife’s blog I knew I had to do it too. You can read her post here and if you haven’t yet, definitely check her blog out as well!

I’m not who of you love Leigh Bardugo or follow her work but if you’ve been here long enough you probably know I really adore her books. She’s been touring around both the US and Europe this year. And for my biggest surprise I could actually meet her! And since I went to her signing on Monday and on Tuesday my review of Ninth House went live (which you can read here) I thought I’d write a little post about the signing!

I’m back with another review! I might be getting out of this review writing slump. Hopefully. Anyway! I went to a London for a small trip and I made it my goal to get my hands on a copy of Ninth House. And I did! And on the way back on the plane I started reading it too! I have to say Leigh Bardugo’s books found me this year at a time when I desparately needed a good distraction and for that I cannot be thankful enough. For this reason my review might be a little bit biased but this book was everything I wanted it to be!
Trigger warnings: drug use, overdosing, murder, death, gore, PTSD, self-harm, rape, child (12) rape (it’s only two pages, but it’s very graphic), statutory rape (15), sexual assault, forced sexual assault on video, talk of suicide, physical abuse, a magical date rape drug, forced eating of human waste, and racism (always in a negative light)
Rating: 5 stars
Book Depository: paperback | hardback (black snake)| hardback (brown coloured snake)

Already October is over! I honestly can’t believe it’s already November. Soon this year is going to be over. This month as well as September was pretty busy for me with all the school work and travelling so I was glad I could get to the books I got to. This month I read 7 book, 3202 pages.

I feel like we can’t have enough autumn themed book tags during autumn so I wanted to re-do a tag I already did last year. I always find joy in redoing tags, especially because the answers are going to be different and it’s something amazing to see. If you want to read my answers from last year you can find that post here.

I’ve seen this tag going around and since it’s already October (Where is time running? But also I’m so done with this year so it could be over already…) I thought it was a great time to do this tag!
