What happened to my reading goal 2020

Hello everybody,

it’s been almost a year and I don’t even know how to start this. I remember when I took a break in March because I really needed some time for myself, some quality time. Unfortunately, COVID 19 took all my free time, and I felt very stressed and nervous. I was afraid of what could happen to all of us. And all that, unfortunately, had an effect on my reading goal for this year.
My goal for 2020 was to read 100 books. I know it’s a huge thing, but I really thought I could do it this year. I usually read around 70 books per year, so it was not impossible thing for me. However, the Corona virus affected my reading goal. I was unable to read anything for the past 8 or 9 months. I tried reading but my mind wandered. I couldn’t focus on what I was reading. I started reading like at least 10 books, but none of them I finished. I have read about this problem. Many readers had this thing, too. On the other side, some readers experienced completely opposite thing. All they could do was to read books. It is different for each one of us. How do you cope with pandemic? Did it affect your reading goal? Tell me about it.

Hello After a Long Time!

Hello my dear book fellas,
it feels good to be back here again because I missed you. I took a little break right before Christmas and I haven’t posted anything since then. My blog and Instagram are still there but in two months they are left with zero posts. It came all of a sudden and to be honest, I didn’t plan this. I didn’t plan on taking this big break. I thought it will be like for a couple of days, but here we are. Anyway, I’m glad I took this break because there are too many big, new things in my life. They are, like, lifechanging things and I had to get used to them. First of all, in December, right before Christmas I got married. It was a lovely day and everything was great. I was planning to post more about the wedding, but since this blog is more about books, I decided not to post these details about it. We had a lovely time and now I am a happily married woman.
Another new thing in my life is that I got the job. I’m a kindergarten teacher and working with children is really great. I enjoy working there. I started earlier in January and I must admit that I was a little worried about working with children because they can be mischevious. All of my worries disappeared after a week because I saw how brilliant, inspiring this job is. It brings so much joy and I love it there.

When it comes to reading, I got to say that in December I haven’t read anything which is okay because I was busy back then. Also, in the first week of January I didn’t read because our families and friends came over and I barely had time to myself. Everything changed somewhere in the middle of January when I decided that it’s reading time. First of all, I read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Actually, it was a reread for me but I felt that I needed something great to get me back on the track. I finished the amazing Six of Crows and only then I realized that I don’t own the second book Crooked Kingdom. I had it on my ereader, but I wanted to read the actual book. So, just like that I went to the closest book shop and bought it for me. I was so happy! I haven’t started reading it yet because there is some obligatory reading to do, and after that I will read Crooked Kingdom.

undefinedundefined
Six of Crows: 5/5 ⭐

In January I also read The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I have read all three books in this series and it was good. I enjoyed it and my favorite is the first book, which is also called The Hunger Games. My least favorite is the third book and I found it a little borring, but the ending was so huge! Brilliant and I loved it! It was also a reread for me because I remember reading it a few years ago, but back then I have read only the book one and I’ve never got to read the rest. Now, I borrowed it from the library and I had a really nice time reading this series. I will probably get back to it again sometimes in the future.
undefinedundefinedundefined
The Hunger Games: 5/5 ⭐
Catching Fire: 4/5 ⭐
Mockingjay: 3.5/5 ⭐

I started my February with the book called This Train is Being Held by Ismee Amiel Williams and I’m enjoying it so far. I received this book in the mail in the last week of January. I want to thank to the publishing house abrams&Chronicle books for sending me the proof in exchange for my honest review. The book will be out on February 11th and I’m looking forward to it! The book is great and I will leave my review once I’m finished.

So, guys these were the books I’ve read in January and I’m so excited about February! I have some amazing books on my TBR shelves. What are you reading this month?

Book Review | A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

SYNOPSIS
‘If I had my way, every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips, would be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. Merry Christmas? Bah humbug!’

Introduction and afterword by Joe Wheeler
To bitter, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, Christmas is just another day. But all that changes when the ghost of his long-dead business partner appears, warning Scrooge to change his ways before it is too late.

Part of the Focus on the Family Great Stories collection, this edition features an in-depth introduction and discussion questions by Joe Wheeler to provide greater understanding for today’s reader. A Christmas Carol captures the heart of the holidays like no other novel.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
undefined Charles John Huffam Dickens was a writer and social critic who created some of the world’s best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.

MY THOUGHTS
To start with the fact that I loved all Dicken’s novels that I have read, it isn’t surprising that I enjoyed reading this one too. A Christmas Carol is a holiday read and I am so happy to choose this time of the year to read it. I was familiar with the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the whole concept of the story. Actually, I had this book in my hands couple of times, but somehow I always found myself reading something else. However, I think that the message in the book is very clear and it will never get old. There are times when all of us become Ebenezer Scrooge. Sometimes we get lost in all material things that life has to offer. We are crazy about money and Christmas is all about ridiculous sales everywhere and yes, sometimes we give in. We forget what Christmas is truly about. Charles Dickens with his characters is there to remind us that it is important to keep the christmas spirit all the time. Be nice to each other. Love each other. Forgive! Do not let the bad times destroy your kindness.
Also, I think everyone is familiar with the story and there is no need for summary. What is the most important here is the message that the book hides. I think everybody should read this book at least once in their life because it will open their eyes. A Christmas Carol will put you in your right place. Being that type of reader who has never seen any A Christmas Carol adaptation in their lives, I, for sure, will see one of them very soon.

I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shout out the lessons that they teach. Oh, tell me I may sponge away the writing on this stone!

A Christmas Tale, Charles Dickens

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and I will always cheerish the christmas spirit in books because it is something very important for me. However, this book is not my favorite Charles Dickens book, but I think that everyone should read this book at least once in their lives.

My rating: 3.5/5⭐

Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav | Highlights

A Love Letter to Bali

I will never forget those slow, languid days, warm and balmy. The sun was a pomegranate red, ripe, and full of promise, painting the pink sky. We stayed in a Grecian-style villa, overlooking the shoreline, watching the waves crash onto the lazy stretch of sand below.
The daylight sunk into starlight like a slow transition, as we lost track of time altogether. My skin grew luminous and shone from the inside, glowed like a lantern. White crescent moons appeared at the bottom of my fingernails. My hair grew thicker, wilder. We were feasting on exotic fruits and midnight conversations that drifted into the sea salt breeze.
We slept. We woke up in the half-light to watch the sun come up. We didn’t write a single word.
Mischievous monkeys scampered across our balcony. Frogs hopped in our path and out of sight again, the sound of their croaking ever-present. Tiny birds darted in and out of our line of vision like thoughts.
The half-moon yawned when we waved goodbye to another moment, lost to memory. The walls learned our secrets like how you like your coffee black and I like mine with cream and sugar. We left something of ourselves behind.
He feels like the culmination of every good deed I’ve ever done.


From: Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav

As you can see, this is another post about the last book I read called Love Looks Pretty on You. I like the author’s word choice and the emotions that the author gave us are wonderful. There is some soft vibe in the book that makes you feel emotional and I think only a few authors can achieve it. Lang Leav was successful in her language to show us all these emotions. To describe how you feel is quite complex task to do because there is always this variety of emotions. Everyone fights their own battle and there are always the good and the bad feelings inside of us. Happiness versus sorrow. Peace versus anger. It’s up to you to decide how you feel and how your life is going to look like. You just have to understand your feelings.

Also, the author’s descriptions are marvelous. They are the upper level of the language and it’s something that will always attract me. As you can see, Lang Leav did an amazing job at this point and I want to read such descriptions all the time. The book Love Looks Pretty on You is full of these amazing descriptions and I highly recommend you to read it. Do check it out!

In my previous I left you the Amazon link, so you can order it if you want.

Website: http://langleav.com

MY THOUGHTS
Love Looks Pretty on You is the first Lang Leav’s novel that I have read and I must say that I am not disappointed. I really enjoyed reading this book and it is surprising that the mentioned topics could be represented this good way. The book tells a story of a woman fighting against her feelings. At some point, she is loved and she feels pretty. She can freely say that she is happy. That kind of happy that makes her rethink her emotional state. Is she really completely happy? Her heart says she is. Her brain says she’s not, but she could be.
Well, what makes her think think that way?
There are two things that ruins her eternal happiness. The first thing is her past. While I was reading this book I got the feeling that the girl loved in her past, but it was not that kind of love that will make you happy and all satisfied with your life. I think that it was one-sided love. Which brings us to the second thing – her self esteem. The girl did not love herself in the past. She was never satisfied with her and her life and unfortunately such things make us lose the people in our lives.

There is our past self among the ruins. She, the girlish one, the foolish one, the one who longs for a place with us here, where she is not welcome.

Love Looks Pretty on You, Lang Leav

In this book the author emphasizes the new beginning, our rebirth. We need to understand that we are only human beings and that all of us make mistakes. It is natural thing to make mistakes. We have to accept them and learn from them. Throughout the book, I realized that the girl was really attached to her parent. Seeing her Father abusing her Mother was the source of her anger, she wanted revenge. I love the mentioned girl with all of my heart because despite everything, she remained a good person. She knows how to love and she learns from her loss and her past. She is everything that we all want to be.

Your Right to Love
It is your right to define love on your own terms. Love between two consenting adults is never wrong, no matter how much anyone tries to convince you it is.
Be with the person who makes you happy. Who makes your heart sing.
It is your right to endlessly curate your life. Let her be herself. Or she will be somebody’s else’s.

Love Looks Pretty on You; Lang Leav〛

Anxiety
I struggle with things that are as easy to others as breathing.
Like breathing. Like answering the phone. Or sending that email I have been meaning to for weeks.
I panic when I am asked out to dinner, even if it’s with someone I really want to see.
It’s hard for me to commit to anything, and when I do, I overthink it until my brain tells me I have made a mistake, like a rat caught in a maze, trying to claw its way out.
I don’t know why I am like this. People ask me why I can’t do anything without jumping through a thousand thoughts, like hoops. But sometimes I wonder if my inability to function in the real world is really such a bad thing. I wonder if that’s why I’ve spent so much time sheltered in my imagination.
And because I can’t live in the real world, I create worlds to belong to. And I wonder if the very thing I’ve always been told is my weakness, has all along, been my strength.

Love Looks Pretty on You; Lang Leav〛


To conclude everything, I really enjoyed reading this poetry collection and I would like to read more of the author Lang Leav.

My rating: 4/5 ⭐

November Activities: My Graduation

Hello friends,
again I broke my promise by saying that I will be more active this month. It did not happen. If you follow me here you probably know by now that I suck at planning. It just never goes as planned. However, I have big news, are you ready?

I am proud to say that this month I graduated!

I am so happy and I can’t believe that I’m not a student anymore. It’s over now and now I’m a teacher. The funny thing is that my graduation surprised me at first because my final exam in Syntax was way too difficult. I studied but I thought I will have to re-sit it next time.
Also, I made a promise to myself that this is not the end. I will continue studying and exploring things that I’m interested in. In my opinion, we should encourage ourselves to always do something new. To learn something new. Life is useless without learning and knowing new things. It’s really important and I think people don’t talk enough about it.
We should motivate younger people and show them that without education your life is not complete. Let’s all agree on this one, please.
On the other hand, my graduation surprised me and my life turned upside down somehow. Everything’s different now and I barely read anything this month. I started reading Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky, but I read only like 20 pages of it. I opted for this book because I really love The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I have some strong emotions towards that book. It’s one of my all-time-favorites. I dare to say that Imaginary Friend is somewhat different and a bit of unusual considering the fact that Chbosky wrote it. I also started reading Love At First Swipe by Gareth Fosberry and I already like it. It feels good to read something other than a fantasy. One of the many reasons why I barely read is that in December I will move out. We are still buying all neccessary things for our home and honestly it takes a lot of time.How’s been your November so far? Have you read any good book?

Have a lovely week,

Spooky October Graphic Novels: Megahex & and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Hello everybody,
I can’t believe that this is my first post in October because I planned to post almost every other day in this month. However, so many things happened recently and I didn’t have free time to post anything. The only good thing is that I read two books last week. Yay! I will tell you about these two books in my mini-reviews because there are just too many details and it would take me forever to put everything into my words.

Book Review #1 MEGAHEX by SIMON HANSELMANN

✦SYNOPSIS ✦
Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an antropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to crips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and the complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg and Mogg sensations on Hanselmann’s GirlMountain tumblr.
This is the first collection of Hanselmann’s work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels in 2014, featuring all of the ‘classic’ Megg and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

✦ MY THOUGHTS ✦
Well, I had to think about my words here.. I kind of have some mixed feelings about this one. In the beginning of the book, I found some things funny and interesting. However, as I was reading on, I found some things weird and to be honest, I felt uncomfortable reading about it.
The book is all about alcoholism, drugs, and rape and I don’t think that it’s something that we should make fun of. We shouldn’t joke about it.
Those are serious things that require serious talks and solutions. It is clear that this is a very sad story and I really liked the concept of it, but I didn’t like how the author represented all the things in the book. My favorite character is definitely Mogg, the cat. However, I had a good laugh several times while I was reading this book and I think it’s fair enough to give it a three stars.

My rating: 3/5 ⭐

Book Review #2: CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA by ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA

✦SYNOPSIS ✦
On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, the young sorceress Sabrina Spellman finds herself at a crossroads, having to choose between an unearthly destiny and her mortal boyfriend, Harvey. But a foe from her family’s past has arrived in Greendale, Madame Satan, and she has her own deadly agenda. Archie comics’ latest horror sensation starts here! For TEEN+ readers. Compiles the first five issues of the ongoing comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

✦ MY THOUGHTS ✦
I really had to read this comic/graphic novel because I just love Sabrina. I’m a huge fan of the show and I knew I was going to like this one. What caught my attention was this dark, creepy story. Seriously, it gave me the chills and I think that October is definitely the best time to pick it up .
Also, I liked that the story revolves around villains and how does it feel to live on the dark/night side. I loved its dark elements such as killing and praising Satan. Its art is everything! I adore the pictures inside and I think my all time favorite character is and will always be Salem. It was really enjoyable to read this book and can’t wait to check out everything by R. Aguirre-Sacasa. 

My rating: 4/5 ⭐

Book Review: Wrong Day to Wear a Dress by Naissa Amada

✦ABOUT NAISSA AMADA ✦
Naissa Amada is an artist, poet, writer and French musician, born in Mayotte Island, 1995. She uses Instagram as her primary sharing platform. She has published her first collection of poems entitled; Wrong Day to Wear a Dress ,in April, 2019. It deals with topics such as love, heartbreak, isolation, self-esteem, and self-discovery. Her writings are based on her own song lyrics. Unable to rid herself of her heartache through her songs, she decided to write her thoughts page after page, and eventually created her first book of poems; Wrong Day to Wear a Dress, which she refers as ‘chronicles of thoughts’.

✦SYNOPSIS ✦
‘This book I wrote, is a fresh start. From dust I’m making a star. This, is a light to my darkness and a remedy for my heart (…) The time I have spent writing this, is second to none healer. Here, I’m exposing myself, and I share my hassles, my thoughts, and my truths. I have typed out my struggles and all the lessons I have learned from them.’

i have lost one, one that loved me.
i have left one, one i had a connection with.
and i have loved one, one that wasn’t ready.

Naissa Amada, Wrong Day to Wear a Dress

✦MY THOUGHTS ✦
First of all, thank you to Naissa Amada for sending me your book, it was such a lovely surprise. The very first thing that caught my attention was the cover of this book. It’s so pretty and the illustrations inside are beautiful. It’s pure art! This collection of poems consists of ten chapters:
I am. behaviors.
– sure.
-heart.
– confusions.
-journey.
– wounds.
– recovering.
– strong.
– wisdoms.
– done.
The book represents author’s personal experience and it is a beautiful yet heartbreaking story. Naissa writes about her battles and how it affects her. She writes about how does it feel to lose a loved one. Every heartbreak has its lesson and we can’t avoit it. They are supposed to make us stronger and braver than we thought we are. There is a reason why we aren’t meant to be with certain people and sometimes it’s difficult to understand. I loved how the author gives more importance to our self-esteem rather than focusing on losing our loved ones. Of course, it’s hard to accept the fact that some people just aren’t the right ones, but have you ever thought about your feelings and what happens with us at that times?
Admit it or not, we have all been there. We cried and we almost always blame it on us. However, it’s not always our mistake. We are still pretty inside out! And we should never forget it.

thank you for breaking my heart,
thank you for making me cry.
somehow, you made me believe in myself
more than i ever did.
somehow, you made a human of me,
more than i ever was.

Naissa Amada, Wrong Day to Wear a Dress

Time heals everything. It’s not just some random quote that will help you go through this day. What I really mean here is that being hurt and sad is a process that will result in questioning your thoughts. Who you really are and why you weren’t meant to be together. You will not answer these questions right away. They will take some time and it will just hit you one day. You will realize that you are not made for each other.
Both of you are still great people but he likes his coffee black with sugar and you drink your tea. He likes being home and you love taking long walks. He’s a dog person and you adore cats. Your visions of the perfect life are entirely two different views. Most importantly, he cannot see you in his vision of life and he does not exist in your visions.
It’s time for you to move on…

I highly recommend this book if you’re a fan of poetry like me. It’s beautiful and I adore every line. I will definitely reread this book very soon!

My rating: 5/5⭐

Isaac Samuel, Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius

✦MY THOUGHTS ✦
Reading this book was such a fantastic experience for me! I enjoyed very much and I must admit that something suddenly changed inside of me while I was reading this book. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does – I’m in awe. Speechless! I liked reading about Isaac, the little boy, achieving his dreams. The word ‘impossible’ does not exist in his vocabulary. He shows us that each one of us has rights to fight for their dreams.
We are all the same and there is only one correct path to follow, and you just have to focus on the good things and let the magic happen. In order to fulfill your dreams, you need to have some faith in yourself and you need to believe in God as well. I also love how Isaac tells us that it’s important to stay positive even at hard times. Only positivity gives us the strength we need to live a good life.
The author’s writing style is clear and easy to follow. Each step in the book is well-explained and examplified. The vocabulary used in this book is slightly complex and to understand some phrases, I had to use my dictionaries. My favorite part was learning how to develop a personal code. Basically, it’s about knowing who you are and what’s your purpose. We must think about it in terms of password. Almost everything has its own password and human beings need it, too.

Focus on yourself and not your shadow!

Isaac Samuel; Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius

This book definitely inspired me to fight with my anxiety and panic attacks. Sometimes it’s difficult to keep my focus and positivity, but I think it’s in our human nature. We lose our focus everyday, but it’s important to find it and learn from our mistakes. We are just human beings and of course we will make mistakes but it shouldn’t mean that we’re not making any progress. Isaac tells us that making mistakes is just another part of our progress. Nobody can tell you how worthy you are. It’s your thing to decide. Life can be good if you choose to see it that way.
I want to recommend this book to everyone out there! It’s bloody brilliant and it will help you to see the world through different lenses. This book is already my best friend and I will definitely reread it very soon again.

My rating: 4/5⭐
