recent reads.

Okay, I have to admit this one isn’t that recent, but I wanted to share this series with you, because I really enjoyed reading it and thought that maybe some of you to there will as well.

The series I’m talking about is The Selection Series by Kiera Cass.
Kalyn Nicholson, a YouTuber I love, talked about the last book of the series in one of her videos, so I thought I’d just give it a try and bought the whole box on amazon.


The series plays in the future and the world isn’t what it is now. Countries have different names and the population is split into castes, which each represents a certain class and with the different castes you’re only allowed to do certain jobs. Also most of the countries aren’t democratic any longer, most of them are monarchies now. So the heir of the throne of Illéa (a future country) is looking for a future bride with the help of the Selection and that’s pretty much what the book is about. It kind of reminds you of the Bachelor, but I really enjoyed reading this series. I have to admit though that I enjoyed the first three books more than the last two, but just read the books yourself and let me know what you think!

Here’s what it says on the back of the first book of the series:

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime.

The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth.
To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels.
To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Them America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she begins to realize that the life she’s dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.”

If you already read the series let me know what you think of it. I mean which girl didn’t fantasize about becoming a princess one day?! 😜

I’m also always open to knew suggestions and always looking for new books to read, so let me know about your favorite series!

See you next time – xo.


Recent Reads and Books I love.

Hey guys,

so today I thought I’d make my next post about a few books that I really love to read and the ones I am currently reading or have recently read.

I think I’m gonna start with my favorite books.

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read this book. If you’re a sucker for love stories and you like Nicholas Sparks books I really recommend this one. The story is really beautiful and makes me laugh and cry every single time.

“A brush with tragedy pushes Denise to the brink. She is pulled back by dashing fireman, Taylor – but how far will he be prepared to go for her when it really counts?

As Taylor helps Denise recover from the shock of her son’s disappearance, their chemistry becomes undeniable. They are a perfect fit, but just as she lets herself relax, she realizes it is too good to be true – Taylor simply cannot open his heart to her. 

As his conflicting desires throw Denise’s emotions painfully awry, she begins to regret gambling the balance she had created with her son. Taylor has to decide: draw back or dive in. Can he open himself to Denise’s love and give her the happiness they both crave?”

Okay so that’s the description on the back of the book. Does’t give it much justice if you ask me. What you don’t find out here is that Denise’s son has a problem with speaking properly. He’s behind in learning to speak and Denise is trying everything to help him learn to say the simplest words. It’s amazing to see the progress she’s making and the way she’s struggling. Seriously read the book it’s simply AMAZING!


The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks

Many of you probably know the movie to that book, but if you haven’t read it yet go on and read it. I personally haven’t watched the movie yet, because the trailers looked so different from the story I read and I still don’t know if I want to destroy the things I made up in my mind, even though that many people told me the movie is really great.

There aren’t many things to say about the book other than that I really enjoy reading it. I’m a sucker for cowboys so yea this book had me right from the beginning.

“Ninenty-one-year-old Ira Levinson is in trouble. Struggling to stay conscious after a car crash, an image of his adored – and long-dead – wife Ruth appears. Urging him to hang on, she lovingly recounts the joys and sorrows of their life together: how they met, the dark days of WWII and its unrelenting effect on their families. 

A few miles away, college student Sophia Danko’s life is about to change when she meets the young, rugged Luke and is thrown into a world far removed from her privileged school life. Sophia sees a tantalizing future for herself, but Luke is keeping a secret that could destroy it all.”

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


Don’t think there’s any description needed for this one. I just love Harry Potter and think it’s a go to series when you can’t find a new book to read or are just sick of love stories. This is seriously one of the best series ever written. I also do love the movies, but the books have just so much more to it, that you’d never know when just watching the movies. In today’s world I think Harry Potter is definitely a must.

After series by Anna Todd


So this is one of the most recent things I’ve read and I have to stay I do like the books, but the story is kind of … I don’t know it’s just a back and forth all the time which continues throughout all four books. After seeing the books everywhere and basically seeing everyone read them I thought why not and gave them a try. I really did enjoy reading them and I like the story behind all of it, but the constant back and forth just isn’t for me. At some points I was screaming in my head at Tessa to just suck it up and leave Hardin.

“Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.

But he’s also rude – to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does – until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.

He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her? Unless…could this be love?”

All in all though I have to say that I’d probably read the book again, just because I think it’s good series and you don’t have to think about much while reading it. And who doesn’t like bad boys? 😉

HACKER series by Meredith Wild


So I found these books when I was in England last summer and just gave them a go. I reread the first four books recently as the fifth book came out in September 2015 and I read all of the first four books in July and I prefer reading a series in one go rather than having to wait months and months for the next one. That’s why I waited until a month ago to purchase the fifth book and reread the whole series. Really enjoy this series, but what I discovered while reading a lot of series like that is that it seems like the authors always have to make everything more dramatic with each book, which in my opinion makes every thing a little bit less realistic. But, who cares?! Still love those kinds of books!

“Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling start-up website. The only thing she didn’t prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to derail her plans. 

Billionaire and rumoured hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defences and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to. 

But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create…”

According to Amazon it’s “The perfect new addiction for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day’s Bared To You series.” – so if you read Fifty Shades of Grey or the Bared To You series you should definitely try this one out 😉

The 80/10/10 diet by Douglas N. Graham


I am also currently reading this book whenever I have time as a lot of vegan bloggers and YouTubes recommended it and I am still educating myself on the vegan diet and which food are the best for your body and health. I am not very far along with reading it, but as fas as I can tell it’s really interesting to read and I would also highly recommend reading it if you want to educate yourself on a raw vegan diet and also just to educate yourself in general. I don’t think that I will agree with everything he says, but some of the aspects I read so far are really inspiring and also helped me in finding ways to explain other people a little better why I chose this lifestyle.

Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you next time – xo.

Back again.

I’m back. Or at least I want to try and post more frequently again.

As I haven’t been posting in months I thought I’d just make this a quick update post and tell you about all the stuff I’ve been doing lately and all of that.

So what’s happening in my life right now.. I actually don’t know if I mentioned it before or not, but I am currently doing an apprenticeship which includes office management as well as foreign language correspondence. It started in August 2014 and is coming to an end this summer. My first exam is in two weeks, which is kind of exciting and nerve-recking at the same time. I’m glad to be finished soon, but have no clue what will come next, if I’ll stay with the company I’m currently  working at, go to another company or start going to university. Guess I’ll have to wait and see if there are any interesting job offers or not..

I am also still going strong on eating vegan. Can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I started all of this. In order to see if I suffer from anything because I am now living on a plant based diet, I got my blood checked and mostly everything was fine except for the fact that I was lacking vitamin D, but yea it’s winter so not that much of a chance for the sun to come out. So I am currently taking some tablets to get that sorted out, but with spring coming soon I am pretty sure that I won’t be needing to take them that much longer.

Other stuff I’ve been into lately.. I recently started reading the After series by Anna Todd, which I’m not quite sure if I like it or not. I mean I do like the story and want / need to know what happens next, which is why I already ordered book no. 3, but all this back and forth is kind of tiring. I’ll still read all of the books anyways, cause like I said before I need to know what happens next.

Also I finished watching supernatural on netflix and am desperately waiting for season 10 to come out. So in love with Sam and Dean. On YouTube I am still watching all of the channels I mentioned before but I also got obsessed with Mango Island Mamma, love watching her videos and her two boys are the cutest!

That’s all I can think of right now and I hope I will be able to keep this up. I really want to post more frequently. See you next time – xo.

Things I Like

Hey guys,

I didn’t really know what to write about on my next post and still wanted to upload something today, so I decided to just tell you a little mit more about myself and the things I like. Hope that’s okay with you. I’ll just do different categories and start rambling a little.


You could say I’m a little bookworm. I’ve always loved reading and just think it’s a lovely way to relax and get away from the daily stress surrounding us. At the moment I am kind of into reading series the “50 Shades of Grey”-type, even though I have to admit this series comes at the end of the list of books I like, sorry. I recently read the Hacker Series by Meredith Wild and The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, both of which the 5th book of the series is coming out this month!!! Can’t contain my excitement!!!

I also like to read a little Nicholas Sparks here and there. My favorite books of his definitely are The Rescue and The Longest Ride. Make sure to check them out if that’s what you like to read!


Next to books YouTube is a thing of mine I can’t get enough of. I love “getting to know” other people and get an idea on how they live their lives or just get inspired my their videos and gain motivation. I am following a lot of different YouTube Channels, but here are the ones I check for a new video almost every day:

Zoella (I just loose this girl. One of the reasons I started this blog and wanted to get more into it), The Sacconejolys (this family is simply amazing and the kids are soooo cute!), Nikki Blackketter (an amazing inspiration if you lack motivation of going to the gym regularly. Watching her videos actually makes me more than excited to go to the gym and work out.), Jaclyn Hill (this woman is AMAZING! She is so gorgeous and hilarious. Even though I am noway near being able to do my makeup the way she does, I love watching her videos.) of course I have subscribed to a lot more channels but like I said those are the ones I check regularly.

TV Shows / Series

You could say I’m an addict when it comes to those. Netflix is my life! Even though I like watching a movie every now and then the think I’m really into is tv shows. I’ll just list a few of the ones I am currently watching or watched and hope it won’t get too long: Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural, Suits, White Collar, Criminal Minds, Castle, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill.. I’ve definitely watched more, but can’t think of them right now. Some of them I am still watching at the moment, others I’ve finished and some I just stopped watching at some point, because I didn’t have time to keep up at some point and forgot everything that happened at the next so I’ll have to start watching them from scratch again.

 Other Things I Like 

Can’t think of any more topics right now so I’ll just tell you other things I like to do in my free time, when I’m not doing anything of the things listed above.

I like just hanging out with my friends, go to the movies or out to eat or for a drink and just chat a little. I am dancing at a club in my town for like 17 years now, which is a pretty long time if you ask me. Also I enjoy cooking and baking if I have the time (made these vegan cinnamon buns yesterday: Vegan Cinnamon Buns and some pumpkin soup today)

That’s pretty much it I guess. If you are interested in anything else let me know! And I would also like to hear about your favorite books, YouTubers and TV shows / series, so I have something to check out when I’m bored! 🙂

See you next week (hopefully) – xo
