Recommending books based on zodiac signs

I don’t know about you, but I’m quite interested in zodiac signs. I find that they hit the nail on the head a lot of times, hence I really enjoy watching zodiac sign compilation videos or memes. I’m not saying they are always right, obviously, but they are fun to think about. I’m not that knowledgeable on the topic, so please take this post with a grain of salt! Some signs were easy to pair a book with, but for some, I had a hard time picking something. I had a great time coming up with them, so I hope you’ll also enjoy it!

September wrap-up // one-year anniversary & a lot of books + a surprise Taylor Swift song

Before we get into this month’s wrap-up, I just wanted to warn you that it’s a long one. So, grab a cup of tea or your choice of beverage beforehand! I read twelve books in September, and it was a really enjoyable reading month for me, thanks to the Magical Read-a-thon. I’m not going to write any more as an introduction, as this post is long already, so let’s get into the books!

Hocus Pocus Read-a-thon

One of the reasons why I love autumn is Halloween. No, it’s not celebrated in my country, but that doesn’t stop me from having a good time. I have a tradition of eating candies and all sorts of sweets and watch a scary movie or two. Well, not that creepy, but one that is suitable for scaredy-cats. I even wrote a blog post last year, so if you don’t like super frightening horror movies or TV shows, but still want something to watch, then definitely check out my list. (A little update about the post: I no longer watch Riverdale, as the fifth season started so ridiculously bad… However, I watched the third season of Stranger Things, and it’s still enjoyable.) And because I am fond of read-a-thons, I thought I’d look for a spooky-themed one, and found Hocus Pocus Read-a-thon! You can read more about it HERE, or check out their Twitter!

Recommending Agatha Christe books based on keywords

Agatha Christie was born on this day in 1890. In honour of this anniversary, I wanted to write something, so I thought I’d do something I’ve never done: recommending two books based on a particular vibe or keyword. I hope you’ll enjoy it! In case you didn’t know, I’m a huge Agatha Christie fan, I started reading her novels when I was thirteen years old, and I love her ever since. I haven’t reread her books in a while, as recently I prefer contemporary authors, but I will for sure continue my challenge.

The results of my social media experiment

This is the continuation of my On social media: a challenge and an experience post, so if you haven’t read that yet, I’d recommend checking it out first. But to cut the story short: I decided on August 9 to go on a hiatus on Instagram until September 1, plus set some rules for YouTube, Goodreads and another bookish site. Because I love statistics, I have created charts, so let’s start!

August wrap-up // A new favourite k-drama & k-pop song + I actually read a decent amount of books

August slipped away into a moment in time… Taylor Swift is always right. August really flew away, which caused a lot of sadness. I like autumn, don’t get me wrong, but the end of summer always makes me blue. Especially this year when I didn’t really have the chance to enjoy it, as I was working most of the time. The weather also got worse in the last one and a half week, so that caused another layer of gloom. But at least I read quite a lot this month, even though the majority of the books were just okay.

Magical Read-a-thon: Orilium – The Novice Path tbr

I am beyond excited for this post, and I want to thank Caro for sharing her tbr on her blog because otherwise, this amazing event would have gone unnoticed by me! I participated last April in her older read-a-thon, which was themed around a series that is by a TERF, and obviously, G didn’t want to keep making that, so she came up with a whole new event! So much effort was put into this, and I really appreciate it. It’s super complex, so if you’re interested, HERE is the whole video. As September is also Latinx Heritage Month, I included some books by Latinx authors too! Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to do the Latinx Book Bingo this year, because I can only manage one read-a-thon, so this was the best compromise.

Rating k-dramas and their soundtracks (part one)

I love rating basically anything and everything. I don’t know why, I just like to think about things I read or watch, and coming up with a star rating makes me think through pros and cons. I am a sucker for k-dramas ever since February, so far I’ve watched seven of them, which is a lot, if you think about that most k-dramas have sixteen episodes, each one approximately an hour long. I am also a huge fan of their soundtracks, so I thought why not do a recommendation post where I combine all these things? I’m also going to choose one favourite song from the OSTs because I’m a masochist like that. I’m going to go in chronological order, so the first one is the first I’ve ever watched. In case you’re wondering, all of them is available on Netflix!
