What's Waiting on My Bookshelf - February '18

I make no secret of the fact that I'm a huge bookworm and that I'd take a night spent with my nose in a book, snuggled up in bed over a night out pretty much any day - and because I like to basically inhale the books I read in one single setting, I'm constantly on the lookout for new reading material!

Now, as I mentioned in my recent chatty life update, my life has pretty much turned upside down within the last few months, so I hardly had any time at all to just sit down and escape reality for a few hours.

But did that stop me from buying books? Nope. I mean, buying a new book every now and then and telling yourself that the glorious day when you finally manage to sit down and read it will come basically counts as retail therapy, right?

So, naturally, I have accumulated quite the pile of fresh new babies that have been sitting next to my bookshelf - yes, next to it, because I have somehow managed to fill up not one, but two of the shelves I bought when I moved into my flat. Whoops.

But even though it's currently looking like quite the mess, it at least inspired me to share with you the current stand of my to-read list because I've had so many positive reactions when I talked about the last pile of books I had accumulated back in August - so let's get into it!

Uni, Work, Blogging - When Life Suddenly Becomes Too Overwhelming

Sitting down to work on a blog post feels somewhat weird, I've got to admit. I've tried to write this post several times, and always decided that it wasn't good enough and that I'd have to come back to it.
 The last time I published fresh content for my blog was in the middle of September, which is now over five months ago.
Yes, I'm really ashamed; and I feel like I owe you an explanation for just disappearing into thin air like that.

It's not like I fell out of love with blogging, it was quite the opposite. I'd still come up with ideas I wanted to turn into content, and I still wanted to keep up with bloggers I'd adored forever, who inspired me and made me want to do better.

I couldn't even tell you how I started spiraling. I feel like my major crisis both slowly crept up on me as well as washed over me like a wave. Suddenly it all happened so quickly, and what felt like all at once.

5 Shows You Have to Watch on Netflix

Who doesn't love a good Netflix session? I personally love plopping down on the sofa or on my bed after a long and tiring day and putting on one of my favorite shows - and believe me, I have a lot of them.
One of the reasons why I love Netflix that I simply cannot run out of things to watch because every time I finish a show, I scroll through my recommendations to find another one that appeals to me - after I've finished mourning the end of my other beloved show, of course.

However, all of us TV show lovers will know that all that glitters is not gold - some shows might seem interesting, thrilling even, when you read through their synopsis, but once you're actually two episodes into them you're either bored to death or might even have fallen asleep.

In order to avoid the feeling of being catfished by promising looking shows, I thought I would recommend some of my favorites to you guys!

18 Things I'm Excited for This Fall

Happy fall y'all! Now that September is upon us, it's officially fall - or autumn, if you're from Britain. Now, I myself don't have a favorite season because I'll always find something that I adore about a certain time of the year, such as long summer nights and pool days in summer or Christmas and snow days in winter.

However, I feel like there's just something special about fall - the scent of pumpkins and of change is in the cool, breezy air; all the best foods make a comeback and nature turns the prettiest of colors.
As I've seen so many people on Twitter and Instagram who were buzzing for the new season, I thought I'd share some of the things I'm super excited for this fall!

Recent Reads #15 - Stranger Than Fanfiction

I can't believe how long it has been since I've written a post for my Recent Reads series! As many of you will know, I'm a huge bookworm and just cannot resist purchasing new books everytime I enter a bookstore, so not being able to read a book I genuinely enjoy for over half a year was really bugging me.

I hardly enjoyed the assigned readings I had to read before my exams, so I wasn't inspired to share them with you guys, and I didn't have any time to sit down with a book I had picked out for myself between classes, work, assignments and studying for graduation exams either.

Due to that, I've been all the more excited about the fact that I'm now finally able to work off my to-read list! Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer is one of the books that have been sitting on my bookshelf for longer than I can remember - which is a shame because I once I actually came around picking it up, I finished it within less than a day!
