Well, nothing can really spoil my mood right now. Reasons?
- My bachelor thesis is pretty much done.
- I got admitted to the Masters programme I applied for.
- I got a job interview for this week.
- My boyfriend is coming home from a business trip in a few days.
- My sister just got engaged!
- I love our new apartment.
And so on, and so on..
What I actually wanted to tell you guys about is my first ever new years resolution!
Many of you out there promise to be healthy, stop with a bad habit, exercise more and so on. Well, I promised myself to read 12 books this year.
Last few years, I've read about 0-2 books a year. I love reading, but don't make time for it! So in January, I googled and searched blogs to find interesting books to read. I clicked home a few, which I knew I definitely would end up reading (at some point), and ended up with two books over the internet, and a few books from a flea market (hello! 0,50€/book?! Are you serious?? 😍)
First book I read was Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella. This one was from the flea market. I've read Sophie Kinsella's books before and therefor knew it would be worth reading. And it was! Funny and just, can't-put-this-book-down-before-I've-finished-it kind of book. I recommend!
Next up was Economista by Isabella Löwengrip and Pingis Hadenius. I love how motivated they are and always have been for saving money and spending it wisely! The only thing I found boring was the fact that it was mostly meant for Swedish readers (and I of course understand that, since the biggest market is there). I skipped the part where they tell how the Swedish government aid and student loan works, since it's not exactly the same over here.
The girls have made the book together with a professor and former surgeon Stig Bengmark. So it's not just facts that they've randomly thought of themselves. Every now and then, they give you a healthy, delicious sounding recipe with beautiful pictures! They are funny and give tips and fun facts here and there throughout the book. I recommend if you're even a little bit curious!
