Words of the Week

Slump - Have you noticed the changes on my Goodreads widget on the right handside of this page the past week? It's insane! I don't really think I hit a reading slump, but I'm so moody with my reading at the moment - it's not even funny anymore!

Wintergirls - I kind of blame Wintergirls for that moodiness. I was planning on reading Glitch this week, then randomly read the beginning of Wintergirls and couldn't stop until I was finished that same day. After that I needed something cheerful, something very positive, so I tried a bunch of different books and now I find myself in a very messy state of mind :)

German books - As I said I wanted to catch up on some german books I checked out from the library and need to return this week, so don't be confused by my slow reading progress (I mean, even slower than usual!) - I don't add the german books I read to Goodreads.

Challenge - I originally participated in the Goodreads challenge with a goal of fifty books this year - then I noticed I've almost gotten to that goal by now so that I updated to 100 books and am now struggling to get behind :)

Recommendation - Does someone have any? For a hilariously funny novel with a snarky , confident heroine? Because I'm really craving something like that right now!

Books I got this week:

from NetGalley:

Smart as I am I requested Dearly Beloved and found out way too late that it's a sequel. Well..not too bad. Now I had a reason to order Dearly Departed which sounds amazing!

Dearly, Beloved (Gone With the Respiration, #2)Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

For review:


Thank you, Amanda Burke!


  1. I know what you mean about slumps... Deep, emotional books will do that to you. I don't have a recommendation but hopefully someone else will be able to help you.

  2. I did the same thing with Dearly, Beloved. Except I knew it was a sequel. I just didn't think I'd get approved- I got rejected for a book by Random House the week before. I guess Random House and Random House Children have different requirements?

  3. Reading slumps are the worst! I tried looking through my shelves for something funny and light, but all my books have a bit of intensity.. But I've heard Joe Vampire by Steven Luna is hilarious.. Hope your reading world picks up :)

  4. One German book pushed me into a reading slump last month...and those "I'm gonna take just a peek" always end up with the book finished in a few hours :D
