So many books, so little time...


What's up? I just realised that I have actually lost track of some of the plots in the books I'm currently reading. It's not that I confuse the plots but I simply forget what's going on. I am so ashamed of myself. I was such a multi tasking reader until recently when I continued with some of the books I'm reading. I didn't remember the details, all of the characters and so on. Oh dear... What should I do, what should I read? How many books can I read simultaneously? I am starting to get old... lol... I turn 37 in May... Oh boy... Well, I will not let this get me down. I will just focus on 2-3 books at a time. I might have to start all over with some of my books... I am truly hopeless... Of all the books I am currently reading, I will choose 2-3 books to concentrate on. These will be... drumroll...

Les Misérables

All the light we cannot see



Holding up the universe

Hi. My name is Cindy and I am eclectic. 😂

Hi there!

I just came up with a fantastic phrase how to describe my reading style. It's eclectic! Nothing goes together, it's random and irregular! Most of the time I just pick up the book that I feel like reading. Even though I have 15 more that I am currently reading... I'm not monogamous when it comes to books. I am not organised or precise. I don't follow rules or guidelines well... That's why I have a hard time trying to complete reading challenges etc. Well, maybe I should be more hard on myself. Be more organised. I certainly will try. But I need to keep my freedom. Not just too much of it. Lol...

P. S. Tomorrow I am going to the hair dresser! YaY!!!

The books I'm currently reading...


My reading slump is almost over. YAY! :) I'm still receiving one credit a month on my audible account, but I don't usually find the "zen" to listen to them... lol I have decided to fix that. Also, I have decided to concentrate on only a few books at a time. I usually start a billion books and end up "saving" the good ones until a later, more appropriate time. BUT! Now I want to read and devour all the great books. I have read OITNB (Orange is the new black) twice, now I have it as an audiobook too, Happiness! :) It's easier to listen to a book I've read before. Now I'm listening and reading it for the third time. My goal is to read it at least once a year. I've got a much bigger TBR of books I want to re.read every year, but I'm thinking of reading some only every second or every third year. Some I always read, almost every year, are:

Anne of Greengables

Sweet Valley Twins 1-4

Nancy Drew "Buried Secrets"

These are some of my favorites from my childhood. Other books I'm planning to start re-reading more often, every year, every second year or every third year are:

Sophie's World

Les Miserables

Twilight -series

Harry Potter -series

The list goes on and on... :P

The books in the picture are the books I'm currently reading for the first time. I've heard about some of them through book blogs/booktube, others are sequels and then there's the most interesting "I just found this book by mistake" -book: "Holding up the Universe". It's sooo amazing! I like it because the main character is overweight and struggling. I'm always overweight and struggling... :(

Well, more later! :)

Hi there!


I have been watching videos on YouTube, about books. Booktube, as we call it. I got a little spark of inspiration from one of my favorite booktubers, Hailey in Bookland. I watched her videos about her bookish resolutions. I came up with a fantastic idea! It seems it is a good thing to post regularly and have some kind of system to it. I thought that I would post more reviews, about the books I have read. I have a bullet journal, where I plan my posts for this blog. I'll have to plan a little, to get everything set, but I will try to post at least twice a week and one of the posts would be a review. What do you think about that? 😊

By the way, I am currently reading The Lord of the Rings. Just started it yesterday.
