It has been such a long time since I last posted anything. So it’s a little difficult writting something now. In 2018, I wanna get back on track with this blogging project I started around one and a half years ago. As this is my (very late) first post of the new year, I wanted to talk about a few things, not all of them including books. I hope you will all have an amazing year and read lots of great books!
Please excuse any mistakes, I haven’t been seriously studying or speaking any English in such a long time.
My First Read Of 2018
The first book I decided to pick up was actually an audiobook and it was The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. Even though I did end up giving it 4 out of 5 stars and liking it a lot, I always had the thought at the back of my head that I read somewhere that it wasn’t that good and so that took away much of the enjoyment. Nonetheless, I do wanna check out the author’s debut novel, since I’ve read that it’s even better than The Woman in Cabin 10.
Books I Already DNFed
Since I decided last year that it was perfectly valid to DNF books, something I hadn’t done often before, I already DNFed two books this month.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
This is probably just really not my type of genre. I do see that it has lots of potential. Dropped after an hour into the audiobook.
Bald ruhest du auch by Wiebke Lorenz
So, so really boring and slow. It has all been done before and it was too superficial at that.
Upgrading WordPress + Putting More Time Into This
Web Design and Development has always been one of my favorite parts of computer science. I love playing around with CSS and so I thought about upgrading my wordpress to not even get my own domain, but to have full control over the design of my page. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. It all depends on how motivated I am to blog and post content. My goal is to post at least weekly on here, which is just enough to make myself read more in order to put my thoughts out there and into the world. I wanna put more time and effort into this whole thing that is my blog, since I’ve always wanted to do it and it’s nice to be creative or at least create content.
Although I already missed the first Bout of Books, it will always be the readathon of my choice and I will try to participate in the upcoming two readathons.
Bout of Books 22 – 14. May – 20. May
Bout of Books 23 – 20. August – 26. August
Movies To Watch In 2018
Only recently did I create a letterboxd account and so far it’s really nice. Hit me up with your username so I can see what movies you’ve watched and wanna watch, too!
You can find my watchlist right here.
The three films I am looking forward to watching the most are
- Lady Bird (2017)
- Call Me by Your Name (2017)
- Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)
