Abschied von Books&Cupcakes

Hallo Leute :)
Ich bin es Christine. Long time, no see.
Es wird nun Zeit am 5. Geburtstag diesen Blog entgültig zu verabschieden. Auch wenn ich auch schon lange nichts mehr gepostet habe. wollte ich  für mich einfach ein Schlusswort setzten.
Ich bin dem Blog inzwischen entwachsen und hatte damals den Spaß am Bloggen verloren, weil ich einfach nie mit meinen Posts zufrieden war und irgendwann auch mehr als Bücher vorstellen wollte.
Löschen werde ich den Blog nicht, immerhin habe ich viel Zeit und Herzblut in den Blog gesteckt.
Vielleicht kommt irgendwann wieder ein Blog, allerdings werde ich mich mit Sicherheit nicht nur auf Bücher festsetzen. Auch wenn ich Bücher liebe, ich kann nun doch mehr :).
Für alle die das hier noch lesen:
Danke, dass ihr mich ein Weilchen doch begleitet habt und für die Unterstützung.
Liebste Grüße

Who sucks at her own challenge? || Blogging in English Ending

You all know the answer. I do!
Well although I suck, you did not! Congrats and happy new year! May tumblr be overflowing with Page 1 from 365 Posts!
I probably should have been more active here on blogger but you guys know life happens. However I hope you enjoyed your challenge. And all of you and I mean all of you wrote in excellent English. Therefore I would very much enjoy some feedback!

I know I said in the beginning that only people who completed the challenge were allowed to participate in the giveaway. I changed my mind. Everyone who tried to master the challenge can participate in the comments! All of you did such a great job! 

The only thing I require is you to tell me in the comments whether you enjoyed the challenge and what English book you would like to win!

You have time to participate until next week [December 13th]. On December 17th I will announce the winner who can win an English book of their choice [value up to 15€]. I will then send them the book through amazon.de. 

I hope you all have a wonderful new year!´

Lots of love

If I would say I havI would say, I have the talent to bring up the most random facts or talk in weird technical terms. 

3. What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
I don't think I have a huge pet peeve. I guess I can be quite annoyed if people start only to read books sent to them by the publisher. Just because I have the feeling one cannot be 100% objective.

4. What's your biggest non-blog-related pet peeve?
I hate people on social media posting obviously photoshoped selfies and posting some "hardcore" sad annd depressing lyric or quote. And are like "Smile sweetie, it is going to get better" and you tell them "dude, everything okay?" and they reply "No I dont want to talk about it" ARG

5. What is your favourite song?

It changes alot. But i really like "Herz? Verloren" by Farin Urlaub (Racing Team). My music taste changed a little the past year. Are you interested in a playlist or something like that? Plus I like alot of genres. 

6. What is your favourite Etsy shop that isn't yours?
I don't really go on etsy. But a shop alot of people here might not know is lookhuman.com. You should check it out. The shirts are hilarious. And I find the shirts true to size.

7. What is your favourite way to spend free time when you're not alone?
Talking. Gossiping. Eating.

Choclate. Salted Chips. Sour Patches. Reesies

Right now in this moment. In the US.

Mac. I dont own one. But I would really like one.

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
I guess it was a guy trying to flirt with me via Facebook (Awesome pickup line: U R cute! My Answer: Thanks.) Needless to say I brushed him off. If that does not count I got flowers from a platonic friend who went to a dance with me.
