✿ What else I've been up to this week ✿

1. Review Slump. I haven't been able to write a single review for 1,5 weeks now. Zero. I usually write my reviews straight away after finishing the book, but I just haven't had the inspiration for it. And now that the reviews are piling up, it's even more difficult to start writing them! 

2. Very first audiobook. I bought this week my very first audio book!! I wanted to have something that isn't the most quickest thing to listen and something that would be thrilling to listen - so I decided on The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.  It has been on my wish list for ages so I though it was destiny when I saw it on Audible. 

3. New favourite Café: spotted! I happened to go today to my new favourite coffee shop! It's so adorable, the staff is super nice, and the lattes there are just mouthwatering. I didn't try the menu there yet, but I most definitely will in the near future!


  1. I just loved BRAVE NEW WORLD. One of my favourite classic dystopia/utopian novels. But the thing is I don't even own it, so thank you for reminding me I need to get it. YAY for your first audiobook. I find them super expensive so I just borrow them from the library. Definitely a different experience.

    1. It was a pretty shocking experience! I knew that it wasn't going to be all rainbows and unicorns, but I didn't expect it to be so extreme. I can't believe that Huxley wrote that in the 30's - so impressed. :)

      I actually got it for free from Audible (because of the 30days trial)! I like listening audiobooks but I'm not sure how often I'll end up buying them.

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. Reviews can be tough to write, I like to write mine right after finishing a book too but sometimes they just don't flow. And yay for a new coffee shop- always love finding those! :)

    1. I think I'm going to try write one today, and see how it goes. :) I'm currently reading for my exams so I basically stare at my computer for the whole day, so after finishing prepping I don't really feel like writing anything anymore. :D

      And the coffee shop is so nice, I can't believe I hadn't gone there before even though it's just across the street. :)

  3. Very cool that you finally tried out an audiobook. I have only tried the Harry Potter series and those were fun, but everything after that was just eh for me. Also, it's always nice to find a different cafe that you like :)

    1. It's been pretty cool so far to listen one. :) I usually listen before I go to sleep or while I'm cooking - basically when I'm not reading other books. :D Thanks for stopping by!

  4. It sometimes happens with the reviews, just start with a short, easy one to get the others coming ? It's good that you have a favorite café near at hand, Have a great week, filled with delicious lattes ;)

    1. Thank you, that's a good advice! :) I think I'm going to write one review today - just to try the ice! Haha, I'll probably go to have another latte today - they were just so delicious. ;)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I understand how you feel about review slumps coz I'm feeling the same. When reviews get piled up, it becomes even more difficult to write... Hope you'll find some inspiration soon! Happy reading! (By the way, love your blog design!)

    1. Review slumps are the worst - they always make me feel so bad about my blogging (even though I know I shouldn't stress about things like these). I hope you're finding inspiration soon as well! :)

      Thanks for the compliment and thanks for stopping by!

  6. Hurray for a good cafe, Oh I do love my latte! I think you have to grab the bull by the horn so to speak and write a couple of reviews and make a list of the one's to do. Once you did that
    , you are on again … speaking from experience :)
    Have a great week and Happy Reading.
    My Sunday Post is here

    1. I really need to get on with writing my reviews.. I feel like a slacker when I'm not writing them. Thanks for the encouragement! :)


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
