Mug Monday & Bookish Talk

Mug Feature – Monday, White     Bookish Talk Topic – Bad Book Month


Hey Book Family. Welcome to another wonderful Mug Monday!

This month has, so far, been a successful reading month for me. It looks like I´m on a reading roll, y´all! The 4 book goal has been reached and now I´m on the sixth October read. What a rare moment for me.

I would ask of you all to get out the champagne flutes, shot glasses, plastic cups ( or whatever you usually use to drink. I´m a whatever – I – find – works type of person ) so we can celebrate this apocalyptic moment with me.



If only we had something to celebrate.

To be honest – I think I´m October cursed. Every single book I´ve touched this month has been a 2 star read for me. Rockstar romance? Meeh. Hyped Young Adult read? Meeh. Fantasy – * hanging head *

I´m pretty sure I´m not suffering from a case of It´s – Me – Not – The – Book. This is definitely a It´s – The – Book – Not – Me.

It´s slightly depressing, if you ask me.

Still, I haven´t given up all hope, yet. I´m still holding onto the positive vibes and clinging to the last shred of hope for the last 2 reads for the remaining October days. Because not everything can be shit, right? Fingers crossed, bookish Padawans!


As for the private part of life – It´s going surprisingly well. I haven´t had the flu yet ( although, I probably just jinxed myself. With my luck… * face palm * ) and I haven´t gone bankrupt from my bogus book shopping spree. YAY! I was even able to smuggle my newest mug purchase in the house without the husbutt knowing.

I am feeling so much love for this mug. Won´t you look at the cute Zzz´s? I´m living for this. ❤ And the cinnamon… It´s unfortunately just decoration and smells more like plastic than cinnamon. I´ve even thought of sprinkling cinnamon over the fake cinnamon sticks… but then it dawned on me that I also have fake dried lime slices laying around and I´m not willing to squirt fresh lime juice over them. Because I don´t have limes in the house. Plus, I´m not crazy.

Nevertheless… It´s been a floppy reading month but otherwise highly eventful.

QUESTION: Have you ever had a terrible reading month? Let me know so I don´t feel alone and miserable.

I hope you all have a wonderful start of the week. Enjoy your day ( or what´s left of it ). Don´t forget to share the book love!

Until next time, my book lovelies.

  1. I kinda have had a terrible reading month. I have just started getting back into some good books literally 2 days ago but I am happy that it has happened and won’t be prolonged, you know? But anyways I 10000% know what you mean. Lovely post by the way 🙂

  2. Oh, no! I hope the 2 star curse us lifted soon 🤗

    Love the mug!
    I think i have some cinnamon sticks lying around. Have to check cuz the look pretty in the pic.

    Also, prosecco in a mug… that’s us in the office. Although i kinda stopped drinking this year. Not completely but had maybe 10 drinks this whole year so far 😂

    1. Ooooh! High five for the not drinking (much)! Did you quit because of health reasons or just because you wanted to? 10 drinks up until now? You can be my best drinking buddy. 😊 Prosecco in a mug is legit. I feel that. I sort of stopped completely without a reason. Just wasn’t feeling the celebration vibes anymore, you know? Now it’s a sip here and a sip there when trying husbutts cocktails, and a glass of whatever when a friend pulls the ” what has gotten into you!” number on me. Sounds awful. It isn’t though. Now, at age 36, I’d rather invest money in a fluffy blanket than go out for drinks.
      Yes! Go look for some cinnamon sticks and do an Instagram shot! They’re so much fun to decorate with 😉

      1. It wasn’t actually a conscious decision. I just didn’t feel like drinking… 😀
        Usually when i drink 2 of something my stomach feels on fire, so i think that kinda helped. 😀

        I’m also leaning more towards blankies and home activities 😀
