Identity Crisis Book Tag

Hey, everyone! Welcome back! ❤ I’m finally a free woman! All my exams are done – anxiously waiting for results now – and I’m going home tomorrow. Unfortunately, though, I won’t really have holidays, since the second semester starts on Monday already. I’m going back to classes and also I’m starting my internship, soooo free time? Does anyone know where I can find that?

Anyway, as a way to relax after this stressful week of evaluations, I’m doing a fun tag! From what I understood, I’m taking quizzes to find out which character from each book series I am, I’m really curious. Thank you Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger and Anna @ My Bookish Dream for tagging me, go give them some love! 😀

  1. Take all the quizzes down below and record your answers.
  2. NO CHEATING. You get one shot to take each quiz.
  3. Give credit to the creator Loretta @ The Laughing Listener or tag her on twitter @LaughnListener so she can see everyone’s answers!!

January Wrap Up

What’s Going On With Me?

What’s up with the world? January was soooo long! While I’m sad I’m about to go home, I’m lowkey glad the month is finally over. I feel that I’ve enjoyed my time here in January and that its work is done! eheh But truly, though, I had lots of fun. I visited two places that I was really interested in, I had lots of meetings with my friends here, and I also enjoyed some time on my own. I had two presentations for my classes – in one of them, I actually had a real-life strategic consultant evaluating us and to say I was intimidated is not nearly enough -, but I think I did well on them (got a really nice grade on one, still waiting for the other grade). I also think I did a fairly good job keeping up with blogging (I feel that I turned into a travelling blog, momentarily 😛 ) AND I read 13 books – I’m AMAZED at myself, I mean, most of them were short books, but it’s really nice. ^^ And, somehow, in January, I decided it’d be a good idea to join every readathon available, so brace yourselves for my annoying and messy updates (because I constantly keep forgetting to count hahaha).

Mermaid Pages|Warsaw & Krakow, Poland

Hi, friends! Welcome to my last post about my trips while studying abroad! I’ve been really enjoying writing these, and if you’re also interested, I’d love to keep sharing with you my adventures. However, for now, my travellings will have to be paused because it’s time to study! Next week, I’ll have three exams and I’m also going home (lots of paperwork to work through).

I couldn’t have ended this better than with Poland. I have some friends there, also studying abroad for one semester, so I went to visit them. I booked my tickets fairly early and I’m really proud of myself for organizing everything about this trip!

Goodreads

Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera’s rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.

When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited – not in love, but in a tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves.

But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters?

The New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion as – from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond – humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

Mermaid Pages | + German Cities I Visited

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! Last night, there was a birthday party, today I went to Bamberg and tomorrow I’ll have lunch with some friends, so I think mine is going pretty well (although not productive at all, please don’t ask me how my studying of economics is going 😛). ANYWAY, today I wanted to wrap the German cities that I’ve visited with you and share a few more pictures. I’ve told you all about Regensburg, the place I’m staying in, and also Munich, because of the Oktoberfest. Outside of Germany, I also told you about Salzburg and Prague already, but, in the meantime, I visited other German cities 🙂

Mermaid Pages | Prague, Czech Republic

I legit could cry this moment as I’m writing this and reviving the lovely weekend I had! I’m currently running on four hours of sleep and I’ve had three cups of coffee in the past 24 hours (I couldn’t stop shaking this morning, great) BUT I’ve checked one of my dream destinations off my list: Prague. I had been wanting to visit Prague for more than five years, I believe, when one of my cousins did an Interrail around Europe and showed me the pictures. Prague seemed an enchanted place and truly, truly beautiful, and I was completely mesmerized by it! 😍 Last year, I also read the first two books of the Daughter of Shadow and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor – the first book is set in Prague and the description of the places got me craving this trip even more! I loved walking around the city and I took so many pictures, and I still can’t believe I actually went there – I can swear I was jumping around the city, from how happy and excited I was. There’s really not much else to say. I visited a lot of places (my friends and I were gonna explore the pubs and bars but were too tired for it, and also the museums were a bit expensive, unfortunately) and I had lots of fun!! I’ll leave you with pictures ❤
