This is not Goodbye.

Dear reader.

I remember when I made this blog. I was thrilled. Books had long been a big part of my life and I was finally going to start sharing that love over the internet with other people.

At first no one would visit this blog. But that was okay. I loved writing about books anyway, and my poor statistic didn't stop me from doing what I loved. I was doing it for me.

Months went by and more and more people found this blog. Before I knew it TeenBookaLover were the blog that every booknerd talked about - worldwide.

TeenBookaLover started to get recognized in media and I can honestly say that my little blog would grow to become THAT big. But it did.

The "fame" never got to me. Of course it's fun and stuff but reading was still the thing I cared most about.
Reading gives me inner peace and pleasure like nothing else. No food, hug or guy could ever make me as happy as reading makes me.

This is my 634th blog post.
And I'm sad to say that I've lost my passion for blogging somewhere on the road.
I don't know what to write about, school is eating me up these days (months rather) and every day that passes by without a new blog-post makes me feel like a big failure.

I went into town today with my friend and manager Julia to get some drinks and we talked.
That's when I realized something. I'm not blogging for my own sake anymore. I'm not doing it because I WANT TO anymore.

I'm doing it for all of you guys.
My readers means the world to me. They give me so much joy. Every time I get an email or a comment saying how well I manage everything I get tears in my eyes. Every kind word makes me so happy, and it does give me fuel to continue and it makes blogging more fun.

But when people start demanding 1 post a day and get angry with me for updating so infrequently during times when I don't have time or energy.... I feel so bad then. I start to put these people's wish before my own health, and before I know it I'm sitting in a corner crying because of all the stress I'm under. I'm so sorry, but I can't please my "duty" as a book-blogger right now. And I hope that you understand.

My promise to you and myself is this:
I will come back. I love my blog more than words can ever describe. I've created something beautiful, and TeenBookaLover IS my most significant peace of art.

I just need to take care of myself right now and find my passion for blogging again.
But I will find it. And when I do I will be back.

I'll write here again in 2 weeks letting you guys know if I need more time or not.

Until then, take care.

Love always
xoxo Lihini


New Releases of the Month: May

Hi guys!
Been a long day for me today.
Had my national test in English today (writing part) and then I've been over at Elviras place all day baking and talking about boys (she is also known as the photographer for TeenBookaLover)

May is a bittersweet month for me. It's the last full month for the seniors in school, and then they will be gone. I will miss them so so much. I've grown so attached to them, and school won't be the same without them. My heart is bleeding. No for real, I think I just got shot.
Nevermind, I'm fine.

But apart from that we hav 2 birthdays this month! My friend Sebastian turned 18 today and Elvira will turn 18 in two days, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you guys <3

When Link heads to New York City to start a music career, Ridley goes along for the ride-and she has her own reasons. As if leaving small-town Gatlin for the big city, trying to form a band, and surviving life with a partially reformed Siren isn't hard enough already, Link soon learns he has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay

The truth.

What a poetic synopsis haaha, seems interesting!

LOVE the trailer, because I've read the book, but man, they spoil waay to much in this extended trailer. Why even show the metaphor thing? Let people see it during the movie. Kind of ruined the beauty of it.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) REVIEW

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
By Sarah J. Maas

Pages: 404
Publisher: Bloomsbury

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. 

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. 

Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.


That was my first reaction. What on earth is this.
I'm an avid reader. I read all the time, I talk about what I read, and I write about it too. I've come across some great, bad, fast paced, slow paced, incoherent, etc. books in my days.

But THIS book right here was just so hard to understand. The beginning did not make sense at all, the background story lacked important information that I'd like to have just to UNDERSTAND what I'm reading. Feeling clueless of what's happening 250 pages in is just not right. But as the real fighter I am I kept going. Kept fighting this book. 

AAAAND I did not like it. I think there's a great story that's being told BUT everything went super fast in my opinion and not much facts to why everything that happened was given. The biggest issue I had with this book though was that I had a very hard time remembering all the characters. They kind of just melted together. 

To sum things up, nice story, poorly told.

Hi! I came home yesterday, the first thing I planned to do when I came home was open the computer and review the book I finished reading on my trip, buuuuut I fell asleep. I don't even remember walking in to my room yesterday lol.

Today have been a rather busy day! I woke up, and seeing my books this morning gave me so much joy. Made my day. Then I got dressed and did my make up, before heading to Stockholm city for my radio debut. I had my TeenBookaLover team with me, wouldn't be able to get to the interview without them haha!

It's in Swedish so non swedish speakers wont understand a thing!
I talked about Divergent, they asked me question about it, what I thought in general, what I liked, disliked, my thoughts about the characters etc. I think I did a pretty great job, seeing as it is my first time in radio and all. A unforgettable experience, and trust me, this won't be my last time.  Click here to get to the link
