Lena’s 2015 Reading Statistics

Me every year: “I could be a blogger.” A few weeks later: “Or not.”

2015 wasn’t the lucky exception. But hey, no shame in creeping back to this blog after about ten months of silence, right? Because I actually do want to look at my reading statistics of 2015 and those are always fun, aren’t they? I don’t want to deprive the internet of my shiny colour blocks. Continue reading

Lena’s Continent Read-a-thon Asia TBR

I’m a bit late but I have too many books by Asian authors on my TBR (surprise, Asian Studies graduate) to not participate in this month of the Continent Read-a-thon. I had a ton of fun in our first month so I am looking forward to the rest of the year! Continue reading

Lena’s January Wrap-Up

Unintentionally, my month was a bit dragon themed. I like that.
After having to correct the number of books on my TBR several times, I started my year with 142 unread books on my shelves and kindle – contrary to what I stated in my 2015 Reading Plans on 04 Jan. As of 31 Jan my TBR is: 136 books (yay for so far reading faster than I am buying books xD). Continue reading

8 Series I Want To Start in 2015

Last week, I looked at all the unfinished series I want to finish in 2015. This week, I look at all the series I haven’t started yet, but totally own – as always, I blame Amazon and all you lovely book reviewers for tempting my purse. I will spare you the extent of my shiny collection (ok, 29), because it is vast enough to give me nightmares. Instead, let me tell you about the eight series that I wish to start this year.

10 Series I Want To Finish in 2015

Anyone else have an unfinished series induced tbr legacy? I have been going through my unfinished series and sequels that are gathering dust on my tbr-mountain-of-doom recently. I picked out the ten series that I will attempt to finish this year, although I would love to finish an eleventh (the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu, to which I and the library unfortunately do not own any sequels). I feel like I am either miles behind in my reading (I mean, Delirium and Uglies for example are pretty old news) or right up to speed (or ahead muahaha, see the Silver trilogy by Kerstin Gier), no middle ground there. Oh well. MAY OUR TBRS SHRINK! Continue reading

Lena’s FridayReads (16 Jan 2015)

The Roaring Girl and Other City Comedies I will be reading another book for university this weekend – Roaring Girl by Thomas Dekker. This will be my last book for uni (or so I think. The last time I thought so I took another class the following semester. Oups.). Continue reading

My 2015 Reading Plans

2015 has rushed in and I wasn’t ready for it. I needed more tiiiime. Anyway, this year I am participating in the Goodreads reading challenge again. Like every year I plan to read 50 books, fewer if I read fewer, more if I read more. I don’t like to stress about numbers (I do anyway). I’d rather read as I want to and if I don’t want to read anything I don’t want to feel pressured by some number on the internet. Basically, I am a mood reader. Which is why I’m a bit anxious about some of my reading plans this year. Continue reading
