As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!



While it might have seemed like an ordinary month, I think it was a really great one. My writing spirits are back again and I am working on a new story which has me so excited. Also, I tried to spend my off time from work more productive. You know, not just sleeping away half the day and watching some telly the rest of the hours. Instead, I went to see an American Football game, went to some shops I always wanted to visit and I even bought new clothes that I love, which is just great. I have to say, it’s been easier to find stuff that actually fits now that I’ve lost some weight though.

But that wasn’t all there was! There are now more than 600 followers on Life and Other Disasters! I am so grateful to all of you for making my day with every single comment and like. You are simply so amazing and I cannot thank you enough for being so supportive in all of this! After the quite extravagant giveaway at the 500 follower milestone, I can’t afford to do that again. But would any of you be interested in a little Q&A? If so, just leave your questions in the comments and I shall answer them in a separate post soon!





How was your month? I hope it was a good one! I am quite proud of my 10 books. Be sure to check out my TBR for next month tomorrow!

  2. You’ve had such an incredible reading month, that’s awesome! I am so excited for you to read the new Morgan Matson book, and for your review of TRATD. HUGE congratulations on the 600 followers, this is quite incredible, and you deserve every single one of them! A little question for you….this is NOT something to ask me, you know I’m going to come up with a LOT of things, haha.
    – I think you’ve mentionned it before, but what kind of studies did you do/ if you did?
    – If you could read one genre, and only one for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    – What’s the best thing about book blogging? (ONE THING. It can’t be me. I wish it was, hahahahaha. Sorry, such a narcissistic moment there, I’ll shut up now, haha).

    • I could put this into the Q&A post, but I am going to answer that now hahaha
      I saw it right across from my apartment building. We live across from a soccer club, they renovated because they moved up a league, but they had some money issues and the Football club needed a new home base, so now they are playing their games there. It was really cool 🙂


  3. Woo, big reading month, 600 followers, and new great clothes? You rocked May! Congratulations, you deserve it all 🙂
    Here is my very serious question : how many pairs of socks do you own?
