Bookish Talks ~7~ All the Random Bookish Things

Hey guys! 

So I have a lot of bookish things I want to talk about but not many people to talk about them to. 

SO it’s time for another Bookish Talk! 

October Massive Book Haul 
Oh my gosh guys September and October had so many amazing book releases... of course I had to order them! 
But that means that during the month of October, I’m going to receive a lot, a lot of books. 
I’m expecting the Gemina box to show up at the end of the month.
I won a Book Depository giveaway, and am now waiting for An Ember in the Ashes. 
I’m a rep for Booknerd Boxes and, since there were problems with the mail company Caggie, the owner, was working with, I’m expecting a 3-in-1 box, with a total of 6 books. 
Let the huge haul begin!
If I get books in the subscription box that I already have, I’ll try to organize a giveaway! :D

Name Thief...? 
So the internet service here on campus is a bit strange - for certain website extensions (for example blogger), you need to search the site through google to be able to open the site. So I searched my blog... 

And found that someone started a blog a few days ago with the exact same name, but a different url. 

Just Another Bookish Blog is my pride and joy, and is something I’m really attached to. I put so much effort into making it unique and mine, that when I saw that someone else was using my name, and instead of making it black-on-white, made it white-on-black... well... I did not appreciate it. 

When I started JABB I spent at least an hour browsing the interwebs just to make sure I wasn’t stealing anyone’s name on any platform. 

I feel so bad but I contacted the owner and asked them to change names. It’s not even like they used “Just Another Book Blog” - that I would not have minded so much. But the name was exactly, exactly the same. It feels weird to receive an email from Just Another Bookish Blog and it not being mine... 

I’m wondering if I did the right thing... Has this ever happened to you? What would you have done? 

Crazy October TBR! 
Ok so this ties in a lot with the books I’m expecting to receive. 
My TBR for October is massive. 
- Eleanor and Park
- Since You’ve Been Gone
- Poison Study
- The Alchemist (Not the one by Paulo Cohelo)
- The Shadowhunter’s Codex
- Immortal Rules
- Illuminae
- Gemina
- An Ember in the Ashes
- A Torch Against the Night

That’s 4440 pages in 31 days
(Well 30 days, I had a really rough day yesterday so wasn’t in the mood to read at all.)

So thats about 148 pages per day o.o 

Instagram Challenge
You know those monthly challenges all over instagram? Well the amazing Summer @library_looter and I made one! Look out for #BookishLootOber! It’s been so much fun so far to see everyone’s entries! :D Totally worth it! 
And make sure to follow Summer’s account! 

Suitcase Issues... 
You know, I’m thinking about my October haul, and am realizing... how in the world will I bring all those books back home with me? 
I might read as many as I can before leaving and just keep my absolute favorites ^^ 

Australia Haul, July-September
So I came here with 6 books, right?

I added 16 to that ^-^”

It’s not my fault there’s so many second-hand bookstores here, charity book sales, and a cheap book market on campus every single Thursday! 

It’s so hard to resist ;-; 

But here they are anyway! I’ve read 6 of them already :) 
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
- The Darkest Part of the Forest
- Teardrop
- Between the Lines
- Off the Page
- Zenith
- Poison Study
- Eragon
- The Alchemist: the secrets of the immortal Nicholas Flammel 
- If I stay
- When we Collided
- The Wind Singer
- The Amulet of Samarkand
- The Shadowhunter’s Codex
- A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (All 4 books in one!)
- The Immortal Rules

... ^-^” 

That’s it for today! Sorry for the long post, but I had lots to cover! I hope that everyone’s doing well today! You guys are amazing and I want to thank every single one of you for visiting my blog. This blog is a lot to me and the fact that just a few people appreciate it, even a bit, it huge! <3 

Have a great day! 


  1. WHAT, there's a fraud on the internet? That's horrible! If there's anything I can do help you, please let me know. I'd be happy to contact that person too and demand they change their blog! Picking a name for our blogs is seriously nerve-wracking, since we all go to lengths to make sure we're not copying anyone, and it's a matter of respect. The fact that this person didn't do their research is just plain rude. D:<
    AHHH, you're getting so many books!!! I love this season, because all these amazing books are coming out. That's an impressive TBR! Good luck!

  2. Actually, I sent her an email, and she happily changed! It was all a misunderstanding, which I’m happy about! Thanks so much for your support, though! <3
    Yesss! I love october there’s so many books being published! I seriously have to be careful, hahah. I am so so so tempted to run to the bookstore and get Replica! I’ll have to see how heavy it is to see if it fits in my suitcase, or that would mean that I have to sacrifice another book to the donation pile... ._.

    Thanks so much! :) Probably very ambitious because next month is exam period but hey I’m ready to try it, hahah xD


Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed this post!
Any and all comments make me smile, and I will reply to all of them!
I can reply in English, French, and sometimes in Dutch and German.
Have an absolutely fabulous day! <3
