books i’ve read in april 📖🌻

Welcome back to my monthly book roundup. I hope you’re all doing good!

I won’t fully disclose all the books I’ve read this month – wait, what, why? you might ask. I regularly read books regarding something (very personal) I’m working on/through in my life – I don’t want to leave them out completely either, because they kind of make up the “wholeness” of my reading month, if that makes sense, but I don’t want to discuss them in detail (or at all). Anyways, that’s why I’m not showing/talking about two of the six books I’ve read this month. ✌️
But there’s still a lot to get through, so let’s do it.
[As always: The order of the books is not a rating, just the order I read them in.]

Zwei Tage in Bad Tölz – oder: zum „Tölzer Veg“ im Isarwinkel 🥨✨⛰

Von der Stadt Bad Tölz wurde ich auf eine individuelle Recherchereise eingeladen – dieser Blogpost ist nicht gesponsert.

Davon dass Bad Tölz wunderschön ist, musste man mich nicht mehr überzeugen, denn als Münchner Kindl war die idyllische Voralpenstadt im Isarwinkel für mich ein beliebtes, regelmäßiges Ausflugsziel – mindestens zum jährlichen Christkindlmarktbesuch in der urigen Martkstraße. Seit ich aber Berlin mein Zuhause nenne, ist eine Auszeit im Voralpenland keine Selbstverständlichkeit mehr, sondern eine halb nostalgische und wirklich besondere Reise zu Langsamkeit und Ruhe. Einfach mal nichts zu hören, außer Vogelgezwitscher, Isarrauschen und Glockenläuten ist alleine schon den Weg nach Bad Tölz wert.

books i’ve read in march 📖💐✨

How does the time go by so quickly, I don’t understand. 😩 It’s April (well, it has been April for a while by the time this goes up) and I’m sharing the books I’ve read in March with you today. 🎉
In case you’re here for the first time: Welcome. I’m usually trying to keep these short and snappy and sometimes (not once so far) I succeed. I’m not attempting in depth book reviews, but instead share a few thoughts and if I liked a book or not. When I’m on the lookout for something new to read, this approach usually helps me make a decision on what to get and what to skip. So without further ado: These were my March reads – in the order I’ve read them.

vegan banana bread 🍌🍞✨

Why, hello there. Thanks for joining me today. Okay, now I sound like a tour guide on a cruise ship. WHICH I’M NOT. But I will guide you through the preparation of this very delicious vegan banana loaf today, how exciting.

I have kind of a complicated “relationship” with bananas. I don’t like them enough to eat one whole banana, just like that, as a snack. Nope. Don’t understand how people can actually do that. I do however like eating them (cut into small pieces) as a topping on smoothie-bowls or porridge – AS LONG AS the banana isn’t ripe. Yes. The banana needs to be greenish/light yellow. As soon it gets slightly brown and soft and, well, ripe – I don’t want to eat it anymore.
 👧🏻
So, whenever I find ~ very ripe ~ bananas in our fruit bowl, they'll either end up in a smoothie or in banana bread. 
I shared a banana bread recipe a few years ago already, but I wanted to try something a bit different and make some changes, so here is my new and improved vegan banana bread.

current favourites 🌿🌹

📍 everything marked with an asterisk * were pr samples and have been given to me for free.

Wow, am I glad that I’m not doing these posts monthly. It’d be quite a bore, let me tell you. It usually takes me at least three months to accumulate “new” favourites or re-discover “old” things that are becoming favourites (again). But, you know, enough time has passed and I have some new (and old) things to show you. ARE YOU EXCITED??! 🤡

february books 📖✨

Another month, another book wrap-up. In my very first installment of this ~ series ~ I’ve said I’d wanted to make these posts “brief”. Yeah, guess what they’re not. So, without further ado, here it is. (Like last time, please note: The order in which I’m talking about these books, isn’t a rating, but the order I’ve read them in. Otherwise the very first one wouldn’t make any sense already. 🤡)
