The Fault in Our Stars by John Green {Quote It Wednesday}

QIW 8 blog

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!

Today’s quote is one of my all-time favorite quotes. Not only does it have such beautiful imagery, but I also really relate to it as I often feel like I have so many thoughts, but I’m not able to get them together to form a coherent idea or to convey to someone else, or even myself, exactly what I am thinking. This is apparently a normal trait for an INFJ (aka me), but perhaps many people also feel the same.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS QUOTE?
Do you also sometimes have trouble putting your thoughts together?

YA Books Dealing With Tough Topics {Top Ten Tuesday}

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic should have been ‘books I disliked/hated but am glad I read anyway’. And truthfully, I was having a lot of trouble with that topic since the only books I can think of that I actually hated were the Fifty Shades of Grey books and I AM NOT glad I read them anyway… So I twisted the topic a bit to ‘books that were tough but I’m glad I read anyway’. But then that shifted a bit to ‘books with tough topics I want to read’ and in the end I mixed it all up anyway and made a post on ‘YA books dealing with tough topics’. So let’s just go with that, shall we? 🙂

Basically, these are all young adult books that deal with some pretty heavy, dark topics such as death, racism, rape culture, mental illness and so on. Pretty much all important topics to talk about and discuss, because even if they are tough to read they still deserve to have people be aware of them. Some of these I have read and adored despite the heavy topic. Others I unfortunately still have to read but have heard lots of praise about already.

Here we go!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

I’ve always loved travelling. When I was little, it was my dream to see the world. And now I am a part of that adult world, it is still my dream, except now I’m also more aware of the difficulties coming with that dream. Such as money and time. Though I consider myself lucky and have been able to travel to some nice locations already, there are still sooo many travel destinations I want to get to. Luckily there are books, which help you travel the world from the comfort of your couch. And sometimes, they even fire up that travelbug inside of you.

These are ten travel destinations that books helped put on my travel bucketlist (or at least confirmed their spot on my bucketlist even further):

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about books I can’t believe I read. More specifically, I can’t believe I read them because the blurb promised me tears and sadness and tough topics and most of the time, I avoid those like the plague and go for the feel-good books instead. Most of the time, but then some times I just find myself picking up one of those heartbreaking books anyway, and end up crying my heart out. And I don’t mean crying like “Oh, my eyes got a little watery at that scene”. No, I mean full-blown snotty nose, red face, ugly-crying. And guess what? I still loved every single one of these books so, so much, despite the tears.

So here are some of my fave books I can’t believe I even read because they promised tears:

Hi and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s another freebie so I decided to talk about opening lines.

The first sentence in a book is super important. It’s supposed to draw your attention, get you interested, set the tone for the book and get you hooked right away. It should suck you into this new fictional world from the get go. That’s a lot of pressure for one sentence, of course, but it is possible! The proof is in these ten examples:
