February // Travels + Birthdays + Blog Buttons

What a month! And March is promising to be even busier! I've officially been in Denmark for a month and a half, and I've explored SO MUCH. I love the program, the city, the people, I LOVE IT ALL.

This means I haven't had lots of time to read or write because I've been traveling so much. This past week I went to Berlin and Poznan (Poland) and earlier this month I went to two smaller towns in western Denmark (Odense and Kolding). As always, if you want to hear more about my adventures, you can check out my other blog, seeking souls.

I did go on a fine little trip to the bookstore to find Illuminae since I put it to a twitter vote which book to buy and that one won. And then - THEY WERE OUT OF COPIES. These are the problems of living in a country where the main language isn't English. The guy at the counter said they'd have a new shipment in TWO WEEKS. I'm going back on Monday because that is two weeks and the BETTER HAVE IT.

Thanks to my Scandinavian Crime Fiction class, I haven't been entirely deprived of literature. Jar City, which I'm currently reading, is super good, and we'll be watching the movie adaptation soon.

And how could I have forgotten? I turned 20 years old on the 5th, which means... I am no longer a teenager. But in honor of this I ate Thai food and wrote a post about 20 things you (possibly) may not know about me. 

OH ALSO IN BLOG NEWS - I updated my blog design (squeeee I'm so proud of it) and made myself a SHINY OFFICIAL BUTTON

Go ahead. Take it. I know you want to.

Jess @ Jess Hearts Books asks why it's so hard to find a YA book where the heroine has no love interest.

Cait @ Paper Fury explains with convincing logic (like I ever needed convincing) why all books need maps.

Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones // superpowers! spies! slight dissappointment!

How was your February? Read anything exciting? 


  1. Sounds like you've been super busy! But a good busy!

  2. Every time I read your blog, I want to travel.

  3. What an exciting month! I'd love to visit Denmark someday. Ahhhh how frustrating about Illuminae! But another trip to the bookstore is never a bad thing :) Hope they had the book for you!

  4. I can't believe you're in Denmark. I would love to go there or to some of its surrounding countries someday! What a fun place to spend time exploring and celebrate a birthday at. And how cool is it to visit foreign bookstores (even if they don't have the book you want) ;)


Book discussions make the world a better place! Write me a comment - I respond to each and every one, I promise. So check back!

(YES! I LOVE TAGS and I do them! So tag away! But no bloggerly awards, though, like the Liebster or the Sisterhood of World Bloggers. Thank you!)
