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

A required reading filled #FridayReads…

Haven’t done one of these in a while although I actually quite like them. It’s Friday and this means: time for reading! In my case, I am swarmed with books for university, although I probably feel like that because I’m having difficulty concentrating at the moment x__x Continue reading

5 Classics I Want To Read in 2015

Several classics have gathered on my shelves (and Kindle, mainly) over the years and the more I read, the more new ones I find that I want to read. But while I shovel them all on my Kindle (because they are freeee), there are few that I am as intent on to read as these. These are the classics I want to get to soon. Continue reading

Lena’s Continent Read-a-thon Africa TBR

February is the first month in Jasmin’s (TheBookJazz) Continent Read-a-thon, that she is holding on Goodreads. This month’s reading continent is Africa and tadaa: I indeed had one whole book on my TBR from someone who was born in Africa, and that someone coincidentally is white. So, not quite what I was looking for here. I started looking and found some books that really intrigued me. Voila~ Continue reading
