Changing up the change, what’s going on?

Shocker, I’m still floating around somewhere in the blogosphere. Although, maybe floating isn’t the most accurate way to describe what I’ve been doing these past two months. It was more like looking around every now and then, and then disappearing again. I promised change, then partly delivered, but disappeared right after. It was terrible, I was terrible, and I’m REALLY (don’t want to use the f-word, but it’s the only word that will suffice here, so just imagine it’s actually here) sorry. Now, let’s not focus on making this a 1000 word post on how sorry I am… I’ve said it once and truly, unquestionably, absolutely, without a doubt, mean it, but no one wants to read a post where someone apologizes 100 times by saying the…

What’s up with all those Workouts

Some of you might have seen me mention my workouts on Twitter or Instagram. Now, I know that IrisjeXx is a book blog (in case all the book related content didn’t give it away already), but it’s also my blog, and there’s simply more to me then just my love for books.

Where did all this craziness get started? A year ago I started running. I set the goal for myself to run a 5k, but never really thought beyond that. At the time I just thought being able to run…

Studying and Blogging: the Struggle

Look who’s back from being gone! I feel like hugging my blog and apologizing OVER and OVER again.

So I’ve been thinking on this, and I realized that when I do take a break from studying and have some time for myself I don’t always feel like blogging. And I guess this is the biggest problem I’ve had since I started university one and a half year ago… Especially during busier periods. What’s my Problem The main problem is that when I’ve been really busy with university and I have some time off I tend to not…

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell | Book Review (but slightly different)

A few days ago my secret sister asked me if I had read Fangirl yet. She’d browsed my Goodreads profile, and found Rainbow Rowell’s other books marked read, but Fangirl painfully empty. And to my surprise (and growing horror), I realized she was right. Which just isn’t right, because Fangirl is EVERYTHING and means the world to me. I read Fangirl at precisely the right time. It was exactly the kind of read I needed at that time, relayed a beautiful message like a punch in the gut, and because of that it has  secured a solid spot in my heart. Now there’s literally TONS of great reviews out there, and I don’t think I have anything to say that hasn’t been said before. Therefore, this is…
