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

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

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.

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
