1st Update - Christmas Bookathon

Hello everyone!
I know my update comes quite late as I wanted to do one every weekend... but I guess better later than never, right?

Anyway, I got two books done though one of it isn't exactly on the list - or at least it doesn't  cover any challenges. So obviously the month isn't going very well. BUT I'm pretty sure I will be able to catch up after Christmas because then I am off school (thank God...) and have lots of time for reading. 
Right now it's just super stressful because we have 3 exams a week every week (does anyone know the struggle?) and I don't have much freetime that I don't use for homework and studying (can we even call it freetime anymore?).
But from now on I will just make time for blogging, bookstagram and reading because those things are important to me. I know school and education are important too but we all have a life besides that and a part, a huge part actually, of mine are books.

Okay, enough of the serious stuff! Let's get into the actual update:

Silber 3 or Just Dreaming (I am NOT sure if that's the right title but it would make sense - however don't count on it ;-)) by Kerstin Gier finally finished this book and therefore the trilogy. It took me an extremely long time to get through it and as much as I would love to blame it on school work, I can't really because I honestly was very very close to just let it be unfinished or at least pick it up later again but I know myself and I probably wouldn't have picked it up ever again... so I sort of forced myself to finish it and seriously wasn't even bad. It was just that the whole dreaming thing the books SHOULD be about, got way too much into the background and instead everything was about teenage-romance-bullshit - sorry but I think that's all fine in a contemporary and I absolutely enjoy it there but I think the authorcould have made so much more out of the paranormal part so yeah... I haven't rated it yet on Goodreads but I'll probably give it a 3/5 stars.

 Night School by C.J. Daugherty
So, I was not exactly disappointed by this (I mean how much can you be disappointed when you have no expectations?) but I kinda expected something more into the paranormal direction. But I can totally recommend it anyway so go read it! But do it without knowing anything except what I just told you;-)  > 4/5 stars,204,203,200_.jpg
Up next will probably be Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! I need something more serious and fantastical, people! :-)

  1. Hey, Gina!

    Love your pic on the "Christmas Bookathon"! It's really nice to see that you're still working on your readathon even though school barely leaves you with time for anything! Talking about school, I wish you lots and lots of luck on your exams, hope you do good in them!

    Random note: I missed passing around your blog, haha.

    Anyway, my reading month is going pretty slow too, but now that I'm done with Uni, I'll be trying to speed up a little and see if I can get to reach 90 books on my gr challenge before 2016!

    Great post, hope to see some more of your updates of your bookathon so that in the end I can pick some books to read, heh! x

    1. Thank you, I'll definitely need it haha...

      Good luck with your reading challenge, hope you get to 90! (keep me updated;-))

      And I'll definitely try my hardest with the updates!!

      Thanks for commenting and I'm so happy you're back from hiatus, I missed your posts;)

  2. Hi Gina!

    Best of look to finishing the rest of your TBR. My reading month has been pretty slow as well. I hope you like Six of Crows! I actually haven't read anything by Leigh Bardugo, but I keep hearing amazing things!

    By the way, I nominated you for the One Lovey Blog award!

    1. Hey Genni!
      I haven't read anything by Leigh Bardugo either but heard great things about her books, especially Six of Crows, too :-) And I'll absolutely tell you my thoughts once I'm finished;-)

      Also, thank you SO MUCH for nominating me!! <3

    2. The hype for anything by her is insane, so hopefully when I do get around to any of her books, I won't be disappointed! Can't wait for your review. :)

      You're welcome! You absolutely deserve it Gina! :D
