Book Haul: December

December has not been a month in which I purchased many books, because I was too occupied with the searching and making of gifts which left little to no time for book purchasing. Actually most of the books I bought were in the last days of the year with great hopes for the next one.

Cathryn Constable – The Wolf Princess

Cathryn Constable was so impressed with a book she received for Christmas that it changed her whole life and started her fascination with Russia. Her debut novel The Wolf Princess came out in 2012, but a new book titled The White Tower will be coming out in January 2017 and although I don’t really know what it’s about, I have a guess that everything happens in Russia.  Continue reading “Cathryn Constable – The Wolf Princess”

TOP 5: 2016 releases I wish I’d read

Anticipated Releases: December

Hey, everyone! You haven’t heard from me in a while, right? That’s because I’ve been ill for a month and actually still am, but have started to pull myself together and hopefully illness will go away as well. This month of mostly being in bed and doing nothing means also that I will probably not meet my reading goal this year unless I become a hyper reader… but I don’t see that happening as I am still ill.

Giveaway Ended: Newt Scamander – Fantastic Beasts and where to find them

November has arrived a lot faster than I expected, partially it must be because of my vacation and trip to Morocco in October (I have a couple of pictures on my private (not bookowly) instagram, if you want to see. I haven’t dealt with the hundreds of other pictures I took on the trip…), but mostly because I’ve been really busy lately!
