Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've all had a great start to October, and that you're reading loads of spooky books to make up for the fact that I've been reading nothing! Well, nothing except for plenty of mathematical papers, that is... My thesis is coming along slooooowly, so I'm still spending pretty much all … Continue reading Reacting to One-Star Reviews of Books I Love
Happy Friday, everyone! I've been spending all week correcting exams and feverishly working on my thesis, which needs to be handed in only a month from now. Where did all the time go?! I'm seriously starting to panic a bit because I have so much left to write, as well as some major proofs that … Continue reading Reacting To Five-Star Reviews of Books I Hated 😎😈😇
Happy Friday, everyone! Truth be told, I've had a horrendous week. I just lost my grandfather, and since everything happened so suddenly, I didn't make it in time to see him before he died. Which means that, to distract myself from dwelling too much on things I am powerless to change, I thought we could … Continue reading The Currently Reading Book Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! After the absolute fiasco that was last week, this week has turned out a whole lot better! I had my first post-lockdown Döner Kebab, which was absolutely delicious, went to a music store with my housemates, where we spent hours testing different pianos, visited my sister (and took some of her books … Continue reading The Feelings Book Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! Today, we're returning to an old favorite! It's been over a year since I posted my last guessing books from emojis post, but you'd never know that in terms of its currently sky-rocketing views. Seriously, how are you even digging this thing back up?! I thought it would be lost in the … Continue reading Can You Guess the Book from the Emojis? (Round II)
Happy Friday, everyone! Somehow, it's already summer solstice week and we've made it halfway through 2021. Where did all that time go? However, tradition is tradition, so of course, we're doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag! This tag was originally created back in 2016 by Ely and Chami over on BookTube, and it is the perfect … Continue reading Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2021
Happy Friday, everyone! With the UEFA European Football Championship currently ongoing, soccer fever has Europe well in its clutches - and I am no exception. Seriously, I'm severely sleep deprived at the moment, because watching all these matches has meant I've had to postpone other things - such as homework, thesis work, or writing blogposts … Continue reading The Football Book Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! The weather has finally gotten warm over here, so I've been able to spend a lot more time out in the sun. Which is definitely a nice change from being locked up in a room with just my thesis for company! Although I'm also starting to get a bit scared of finals, … Continue reading The Aesthete Blogger Award
Happy Friday everyone! My thesis is still consuming pretty much all of my time - I've solved the database problem (I think), but I'm getting a bit worried about my program's computation time when confronted with polynomials of higher degree... It's been running for three full days since it delivered the last set of data, … Continue reading Comparing US and German Book Covers (Part 3)
Happy Friday, everyone! I know I've been extremely absent from the blogosphere these past few weeks, but I'm still alive! I'm just still very busy with all the coding for my thesis. If you by any chance happen to know how to externally search an online database such as LMFDB within a MAGMA-program, please tell … Continue reading Never Have I Ever Book Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you're all doing well! University is now in full swing over here, which means I'm back to grading papers and struggling with my own homework...

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you're all doing great and spending time with some wonderful books! Here, at least, we have perfect reading weather ❄🍵📚 It started snowing again on Easter Monday, and the flakes have been picking up speed ever since. However, instead of nice, beautiful, winter-wonderland snow, we have the disgusting mushy and … Continue reading How Obsessed With Books am I Actually?
Happy Friday, everyone! I've had another really busy week full of beta-reading and working on math stuff, so instead of the book review for Royal Assassin that I originally had planned for today, you're getting a tag! Since, you know, writing a review would have meant actually finding the time to read the book first … Continue reading The Meet the Book Blogger Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you're doing well! I've spent most of the week working on my thesis and proofreading things for various other people, so I'm glad you guys came through with intriguing assumptions to keep me entertained! Seriously, by the time I had read a certain someone's abstract, my belief in humanity had … Continue reading Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me!
Hi everyone! I already announced in my February wrap-up that I was thinking of doing a "Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me" post in order to celebrate hitting 300 followers - Thanks again, guys, your support means the world to me!!! 🥰🎉🥳 - and since several of you seemed keen on that idea, we're just … Continue reading Got Any Assumptions About Me? 🧐
Happy Friday, everyone! You're getting another tag today, because after the whirlwind of a week I've had, I'm way too lazy exhaused to write anything too elaborate 😁 First, my phone somehow decided now would be the perfect time to go into auto-destruct mode, which means I've been scrambling to get a replacement and trying … Continue reading The Bookish Snob Tag
Happy Friday, everyone, and a wonderful Lunar New Year to those of you who celebrate it! My own week was pretty much filled with exams, so overall, I'm mostly glad it's over 😅 Especially since I've discovered that online exams are even more stressful that the regular kind. With no fail-safe way of stopping us … Continue reading Books as First Dates Tag
Hi everyone, happy Sunday!
This is just a quick heads up before I get back to studying for my Russian oral tomorrow 😉 As you may or may not know, Riddhi over at Whispering Stories has recently been doing a series of blogger interviews, where she talks to different people all around our community every Sunday. Anyway, today I had the great honor of being featured on Riddhi’s blog, so if any of you would like to check that post out and discover a few more things about me that I might not have shared on here yet, you’re more than welcome to!
Also, if you’re not already following her, I would also highly recommend checking out some of Riddhi’s other amazing content. I don’t know how she does it, but she posts such a variety of creative things on Whispering Stories and she even recently started a second blog, poems and poesies, where she posts some of her poetry. Trust me, it’s definitely worth reading!
Anyway, I’d better get back to studying now 😅 I’ll see you on Friday with my regular post!
Hello everybuddy! As you may or may not know, in late December, I announced that I will be doing a series of blogger interviews and the fourth one’s here!
Today I will be interviewing one of my favourite bloggers- Naemi from A Book Owl’s Corner. I have often talked to Naemi in the comments and we have also talked via emails once or twice! But this interview provides more of an insight to her life, so I am excited! Let’s get started!
Me: So, Naemi, tell me something about yourself.
Naemi: This is already such a difficult question to start off with! I don’t think I’m actually that interesting, to be honest. Just your regular old math and English student who loves to talk about books in her free time.
But one thing that I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned on my blog is that I live in this…

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've all had a wonderful week! 💕 Seriously, my own was such a disaster that it'd be nice to know that there are people out there who are having a much better start to 2021. One of our cats died on Monday, and to say I'm not dealing well with … Continue reading The 2020 Superlatives Tag
Happy Friday, everyone! This week has actually been quite an eventful one. University has started again, which means that I suddenly have a ton of work to do, and everyone is already worrying about finals, which has me worried that I might not be worried enough yet, if that makes sense... Although the intense end-of-semester … Continue reading The “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Book Tag
