My Notion set-up + tips and tricks

I’ve never even heard about Notion up until I’ve joined the international blogosphere. I’ve first seen it in May’s September wrap-up! I immediately registered and started to play around with it. I drew inspiration from May’s picture she shared in that post because I really liked how she set it up! Then a few days ago, she shared her whole set-up and it inspired me yet again! Check it out HERE, it’s a really great post! Caro @ Bookchesirecat also wrote about Notion, Sumedha @ the wordy habitat shared her Notion workspace tour in a video, I’d totally recommend checking out both!

TV shows and movies that (hopefully) won’t give you nightmares

You probably don’t know this about me (yet) but I am a huge scaredy-cat. I am fond of Halloween, even though I’ve never participated in a Halloween party because most people don’t celebrate it in my country. It’s on my bucket list though, to one day, go to a stereotypical American Halloween party that I’ve seen so many times in TV shows and movies. However, I get scared really easily, so to enjoy this atmospheric season, I have to be quite careful when choosing TV shows or movies. I just can’t stand jump scares (they make my anxiety a hundred times worse)! So I was really glad when I saw that Caro @ bookchesirecat shared her favourite spooky books for scaredy-cats! She also wrote a blog post about spooky content a year ago, so check that out too! She inspired me to create my own list, so here we go!

I read every day before bed and after waking up for a week: an experiment and a challenge

It started on a Thursday night, on October 8, a few hours after I’ve watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. I realized some things, and I wanted to change. So I challenged myself to read every day before going to sleep and after waking up for a week, instead of immediately grabbing my smartphone or tablet. I was focusing more on the before bed aspect because I wanted to find out some stuff.

Let’s Talk Bookish: What makes you DNF a book?

I recently discovered this bookish meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. Today’s topic immediately grabbed my attention, as it’s about DNFs (book that you did not finish)! I find it fascinating to read about other’s feelings towards DNFs, some bookworms just cannot fathom the thought of it, and others are doing it frequently.

September wrap-up

I’m so excited for this post! September was the first month that I blogged in English, and I’m really enjoying my time! I love this community, and I’ve discovered so many amazing book bloggers, who have really interesting content, and are super kind and welcoming. September was a great reading month, I’ve read twelve books! It’s kind of average for me, as I usually read this many. As this is the first wrap-up post I’m ever writing on this blog, it’s going to be an experiment – I still don’t know exactly how do I want to format them, how long should my little reviews be. But let’s get started, because it’s going to be long anyways!

Reading through Agatha Christie

This Wednesday, when I was looking at my bookshelves, I had an idea that got me really excited! I have read all of Agatha Christie’s books, but I haven’t read them in publication order. And what fun would it be to do so? I think it must be a great way to experience how she grew as an author, and also to relive those stories in the same order as people got to, when they were first published!

Agatha Christie quiz

Today is a really special day. Agatha Christie was born on this very day in 1890. So to honour her, I decided to make a quiz with ten questions about her life and books. I also thought to do this because I’m currently running my second Christie-a-thon (for more information check out THIS Instagram post) and I wanted to make something fun! So, let’s go! Tell me in the comments how many did you get!

P. S.: it’s in two languages, because I used this quiz on my Hungarian blog, too!
