A year of reading Brandon Sanderson

sanderson_Banner

Interrupting my blogging hiatus for a very exciting announcement! :D
At the end of last year I fell in love with Brandon Sanderson‘s books, so when Elena came to me with her idea for a Brandon Sanderson challenge/read-along I was thrilled! There are still so many of his books I need to read and reading them together with others is so much better!

 

A year of reading Brandon Sanderson:

From Alcatraz to Mistborn to Warbreaker, Elena and I who are big fans of Sanderson, want to tackle Sanderson’s complete Cosmere. This challenge is supposed to be a coordinated long-time read-along to make for intensive chats about Sanderson’s books. Therefore we are going to host “reading nights” and if we can manage we also want to do read-alongs for specific books.

See that Sanderson is a diligently writer, there is a broad  range of books to choose from, both in the Fantasy and Science Fiction genre, and series as well as standalones. He is also quiet popular in Germany so that almost every book is available in German and most of his books are also available in audiobook format! There is something for everyone!

 

The challenge:sanderson_en

This challenge is hosted by Elena and me. You can sign up via a comment until August 10,2014. If you read and reviewed at least 3 books at the end of the challenge you’ll be entered in our giveaway. Both of us are going to give away one Brandon Sanderson book of your choice (up to 20€/$25) to one of our participants. You can always join the challenge at a later time to read along with us but you won’t get an entry in the giveaway. The challenge ends July 31, 2015.

We are looking forward to having a great time with reading Sander’s books and are happy about everyone who is going to join us!

Blogging hiatus

hiatus

 

You might have already noticed from the lack of posts and comments that I’m not really into blogging right now. I haven’t felt like writing any reviews lately or any blog posts actually. On top of that I’m currently extremely busy and will be for the next few weeks so that I won’t have any time to spend on blogging. I don’t know yet when I will be back because I don’t know when I’m less busy again. I hope this hiatus won’t last too long but the blog will be quiet for at least the next 4 weeks.

I will still post pictures on instagram and share what I’m reading. I’m mostly rereading books right now because of the lack of time to write any reviews.

See you again in a few weeks! Until then: happy reading! 

Top Ten Favorite TV Shows

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I don’t spend a lot of time watching TV series (maybe 5 episodes max each week) and yet I had trouble only listing 10 TV shows. I decided to only list the ones I’m currently watching and not favorites like Gilmore Girls and Friends which ended a long time ago. If you want to know what other shows (and movies) I watch you can check out my profile on trakt.tv!

Wreck This Journal #4

I haven’t been working on my journal for a while now but I’m currently in a reading slump and thought it would be a good idea to pick it up again. What better thing to do on a rainy day than wrecking a journal when you don’t feel like reading!^^

 

Wreck_This_Journal_4a

That’s how the journal looked like before I started working on it. Its spine is broken and the whole journal is slowly falling apart. It didn’t wanted to hold it together with tape because I’ve only started and it might get thicker over the time. That’s why I chose to bind it with a thread that’s pretty loose:
