OUR DARK DUET BY VICTORIA SCHWAB

“People were messy. They were defined not only by what they’d done, but by what they would have done, under different circumstances, molded as much by their regrets as their actions, choices they stood by and those they wished they could undo. Of course, there was no going back – time only moved forward – but people could change.”   Well, this book made my poor, little…

MONTHLY FAVORITES | SEPTEMBER

This month I was basically on a spending ban, yes – sad times.  So as expected today’s roundup will be short, sweet and to the point.  Which come to think about it might be quite refreshing to all my readers since you will enjoy a rumbling free review for ones.  Or will you? Muhahaha . You might have noticed I am in a kind of a funky mood, maybe because…

MY FAVOURITE CITIES TO TRAVEL TO – VIENNA | I WENT TO

I think that my love for travel and exploring came right after I discovered my passion for books. Maybe it was inspired by reading all of the amazing stories. And just as all of the heroes in my favourite books I wanted to see everything, live everywhere, discovered new cultures and customs. When I was a very dorky teenager, I was this extremely timid person that never felt right at…

So if you are a fan…

HOW I TRICK MYSELF INTO BEING A MORNING PERSON| THOUGHTS

I think I will never be able to be one of those people that wake up at 7 o’clock in the morning with a smile, ready for the day and happy to be alive. When I wake up I look mostly like an evil troll and everyone around me know better than to question my grumpiness.  At some point though, things had to change. I decided to try some…

FIVE THINGS WORTH THE SPLURGE

I remember, when I was a little girl, how my grandmother used to take tremendous care of each one of her belongings. I never really understood why because I was coming from a generation that had everything in bulks and it was always at affordable prices, so if I needed anything I could just go and buy it. But something she used to say stuck in my mind – “They…

WHY NOT ME BY MINDY KALING| BOOK CLUB

Ah, who doesn’t like those Sunday afternoons when you had just finished cleaning the house, doing the laundry, taking a shower… hum, remind me why is it called a weekend again…?  But this is not the point here (even though I do plan to someday write an angry letter to the president and demand a three day long weekend, for which you can thank me later).

25 FACTS ABOUT ME|THOUGHTS

Ah, how quickly time flies. Recently, I started to realize this fact more and more. Have you noticed how in our minds, time is an unspecified concept? We imagine it as something vast and spectacular, but actually it slips through our fingers with such enviable ease that often leaves us with questions like “But what about February? I had so many plans for this month … “. I really…
