I treated myself to a solo holiday at the end of February/beginning of March. I spent a few nights in Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. Even though my current financial situation really did not allow it, I spent a whole lot of money on six new books.
It’s part of my routine whenever I go somewhere new. I always come back with a new fridge magnet and a new book. This time, I just took it a little further. In fact, I didn’t even buy two each place, as the maths would suggest. I picked up two in Vienna, three in Bratislava, and one in Budapest.

Book series and I have a very weird relationship. I can sometimes read a book completely out of sync and then get confused when something that happened in the second book is continued and developed in book three. Or, I start a series and then just abandon it for no reson. Often, I go back to a series I’ve left to the side after a couple of months reading something else. There are a number of series though that I will likely never return to. There are a few reasons why I might decide to permanently shelve a series I was once loving.

I love a standalone novel, but there is something about a series. You get to really know the characters as you stay with them for such a long time. There are a couple of series I’ve read that really stayed with me for a long time. I promise, this won’t just be me giving Harry Potter a huge pat on the back. (Sometimes, he doesn’t really deserve one anyway.)
In the lead up to Christmas, the Thursday Tag posts have become a little more frequent. Each week leading up to Christmas Eve, Thursdays are going to be a festive occasion.
The 12th of December has just past, so it’s the perfect time to pay homage to *that* song. It’s been seen many times in many ways, but maybe not with reference to books. I found this on The Impossible Girl Blog.
