What’s New?

I handed in my Bachelor thesis this week! I cannot believe it’s finally done. I was more or less satisfied with it by the end – now I only hope I’ll pass and everything will be okay, but it’s out of my hands now. I’m having a weekend right now. An actual weekend, guys! It is the best thing in the history of best things. Personally, I feel like I deserve a fucking holiday, or possibly a small island, but apparently I still have to go to work. BUT DID I MENTION I GET TO HAVE FREE TIME AGAIN.

Also, pokémon go came out literally the day I handed in my thesis, so that’s pretty much what I’ve been up to the past few days. I’m currently at my grandma’s place in the countryside because it was her birthday this weekend and there’s literally nothing here, but I’ve taken walks just to hatch eggs (this app is what would have gotten me to do sports as a kid, not traumatic PE in school). I’ve even started watching pokemon episodes again, because why not I HAVE FREE TIME. I’m technically also doing the fantasy favorites read-a-thon, but I didn’t really have enough energy to read yet. Right now I’m just recharging my batteries and enjoying my free time!

The Shiny

I got two books from netgalley, and they both feature baked goods. I’m sensing a theme with this lately.


I hope you’re all having a great week and that you’re enjoying your summer! Oh, and if you have any good adult book recs, leave them below. :) I read a lot of YA, but recently I’ve been feeling the need to switch it up a bit. I usually read classics or contemporary(?) adult books when I feel like that, but I’m in the mood to try something new.

    Um, what are these “adult books” you speak of? 🤔 Kidding, kidding, but I legitimately don’t think I know any. That’s sad. As, you know, an adult. Well, that isn’t true- I know some, but either I know you have read them (ADSOM) or I am mad at them (Sookie Stackhouse series). I gave my parents a few adult ARCs from BEA that they liked but that won’t help you because they haven’t been released. I fail here, Vlora. I failed you and I am sorry.

    As for Pokémon… I am too old for it, I think? Like, the actual thing came out when I was a grumpy teenager, so I don’t have any emotional connection to it in any way, but I wish you luck in your… hunting, or whatever it is that people do. Collect? I have no idea, for real. But I think that it is a positive, for the post part. I keep hearing uplifting crap about it anyway. Glad you’re having a lovely weekend, and congrats on turning in your thesis- I am sure you did AMAZING!! :D

    Congratulations on finishing your paper. Yay for more time which will give you time to get some reading in, and maybe some baking? I haven’t joined the pokemon craze but the husband and little one have and walk all over. I hope you enjoy your rest and relaxation and new books. Have a great week.

    It must feel good to have free time and to be DONE! Congrats to you. And yay for Pokemon go- I so hear you on an app like that making sports or exercise fun, rather than sucky school where they jam all kinds of kids together. But I won’t get off on a tangent… lol.

    Wish I had some good recs… have you read The Blue? It’s about two young women who join a yacht of free spirits and they sail all over the Australia/ south Pacific area. I guess though it’s kinda YA and not adult? Not really sure, I liked it though. anyway, enjoy your week! :)

    Aah, congratulations, Vlora! It’s so exciting for you to have finished and that time when you’ve achieved the thing you’ve been working so hard at and breathe in and out with so much a lessening of stress is just glorious, and I’m glad you’re taking your time to get back to everything. Gotta say, watching some Pokemon to relax seems like such a perfect idea. The sudden increase of popularity in the ever popular Pokemon culture has been so interesting to watch, and whilst all the Instagram posts haven’t yet got me started on PoGo, I doubt it’ll be long. HATCHING OUR OWN POKEMON I MEAN COME ON YES. Exciting stuff.

    I hope the results of your thesis are all great, Vlora! You’ve done such a great job, and it’s so exciting to have this complete. I hope your novels randomly featuring food (the cover and title of that first one makes me swoon) are lovely, perfection reads. xx
