Today's post is about a bit different topic, which is books... I decided to do a post like this since I've been absolutely loving to read lately! So these are all stories I read recently, that I've been adoring...
Now I actually went to quite a long reading break the past year, which is kind of sad because I've always been a huge book person. So when I started reading again it really felt like a pice of my personality was rediscovered. All these books are in english, since I prefer that over reading in german (my mother tongue). I don't really know why but I guess it just sounds more appealing to me...
Out of my mind
For thirty-five girls, the selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape a rigid caste system, live in a palace, and compete for the heart of Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love Aspen, who is a caste below her, and competing for a crown she doesn't want.
Read the whole trilogy plus two of the extra books within a month...So this series definitely draws you in. It's also really easy to understand for people who's mother-tongue isn't english. By the way I really got the feeling there's going to be a selection movie soon...

I only finished the first book of this series but I totally loved reading it, although it's a bit difficult to read in public for a emotional person (at least for me). Anyways I'm currently already reading the second book of this trilogy...
Finally I just wanted to mention that I'm still not the fastest reader, so I haven't really read that much this year...However I hope you enjoyed this little post also let me know what your favourite books are:)
