Early bird catches the... Book? ;)

Good morning!

It is 3 a.m. here in Finland right now. I sometimes have trouble sleeping...

Yesterday evening I continued listening to IT by Stephen King. It is sooo good! I feel like very Stephen King-y, like, really in the "mood" for SK books. LOL. They are amazing. The longest book by him that I have read is The Stand, the shortest: Carrie... Carrie and The Green Mile are my favorites.

Now it is time. It is time to re-read OITNB. (Orange is the new black)... I have read it three times so far. It is my favorite memoir, and my favorite biography is Mercury by Lesley-Ann Jones. It is amazing! I also really like "The lost child of Philomena Lee" by Martin Sixsmith.

Today I will (try to) read some old favorites, like Jurassic Park, The Neverending story (both in Swedish) and maybe some other(s)... I have 32 books on my Goodreads currently-reading shelf! OOPS! I did it again... LOL. I need to update that list... Here is a link to my Goodreads-page:

Cindarella Goodreads

You may follow me if you wish LOL...

Oh WOW! I have read 23 books this year, so far! That is AMAZING! Last year I only read 18... My goal is to read my age in books every year. It gets trickier all the time lol... Dang it! I should have thought of some other way of challenging myself haha! Well I will try...

More later!

It is almost 5 a.m. here in Finland right now. I am listening to a radio station from Sweden. Not any station... My favorite! I lived in Stockholm for 12 years and I listened to this radio most mornings. My favorite radio personality talks every morning. He is so awesome!

My reading-slump has resumed... At least a little bit. It is awful. Either I read like crazy or not at all. Well, I am exaggerating a little lol. I have not slept much tonight, this morning, whatever. lol. My brain is not functioning properly. Sorreee...

I will try to get out of this slump by following some of my favorite booktubers advice:




Those are just a few of my booktubers that I love! I looove me some booktube!

Hailey in Bookland was the first, or one of the first booktubers I discovered! I just love her style! I just keep on finding more new people to follow but I also love watching old and familiar videos, over and over again... Absorb the message lol...

Books are great, I could not live without them.

I am part of a few book clubs on Facebook etc. but they do not feel "real" :( I need to see the FACE of the person I am talking with. See the reactions etc. That is not always possible via the web... It is okay tho, I have a few book clubs on Goodreads, that I feel a little more connected to, sometimes lol

Here is my favorite book club on Goodreads, if you are a woman, join!

With the Power of Pepsi...


What's up? Wow, has my reading-slump eased up! Man, I have read 23 books this year so far! Last year I read 18 books... So, the progress has been positive. lol. I am so happy that I have "found" my books again and the Right Pace for me. Happy! I have never ever read as many Harry Potter books a year that I have already read this year! WOW! HP 5, 6, 7 and 1... Plus started HP2. It is AMAZING.

"I love big books and I cannot lie"

Nowadays, when I see a "skinny book", that is like less than 300 pages, I am like: That's not a REAL book, that's a novella lol... No, but seriously, I am becoming a proper book snob, but it ain't all negative... Once I get this blog going again, I will have more motivation to continue reading more, 'cuz then I have more stuff to write about and so it goes... The circle of (a readers) life! YES.

'Books are, in fact, better than people! A book will never leave you lonely, at least not until it ends and/or if/when it makes you feel lonely... lol. Horrible, I know. I am on a roll here... I have seen the (reading) light! and the puns go ever on and on...

Also, Pepsi plays a huge part in this. I am usually very tired and sluggish, even in the day! But Pepsi, man that stuff is awesome! I do not drink coffee, see. I need some kind of perk-me-up... I also happen to have (mild) ADHD and caffeine helps me concentrate. On the contrary of popular opinion, slowing down a ADHD person does not make him/her focus better. On the contrary, my dear Watson! Put a little extra "UNFF" into the tank and the car runs a lot more inspirational(ly) lol.

I do not know why, but it feels like the weekend to me lol. That's weird...

More later!
