Ten On Tuesday. Book love, book shelves and a new language.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope your week is going great! You can link up for Ten On Tuesday here.
Today is Alfred Hitchcock's birthday by the way. My hero. 


Number 1.

I am totally confused by Bloglovin. It seems like you can follow people and you can follow the blogs. I realized that I only followed the blogs before and I started to follow some people. But I have no idea where the difference is.

Number 2.

I started to watch "Orange is the New Black". Not that I need more shows to  watch but it sounded really promising. And I am stoked. Such a good show! I have only watched 2 episodes so far but I can't wait to see some more tonight. I have a weakness for prison shows. Anything prison related is just very interesting. 
It just confuses me that the main girl reminds me of Katy Perry all the time.


Number 3.

I ordered the pink and red dress I talked about here. And now I am hoping that it will fit and won't look stupid on me.

Number 4.

I got totally excited yesterday when I got an email from amazon telling me that one of my favorite writers wrote a new book and that it will get released in November. 


Number 5.

But first of all I am waiting for the new crime novel by Jussi Adler Olsen to be released in September. I also discovered another crime novel series that I want to check out, written by Lars Kepler.

Number 6.

I can't even put into words how much I love books. 

Number 7.

I am so glad that Breaking Bad is back. I really missed all the characters, no matter how stupid that sounds. I won't discuss the episode now because I know that some of you haven't watched it yet. But I am really excited to see more next Sunday.

Number 8.

I tried to update the software of my iPhone and the result is that my phone completely stopped working. Yay for that. I have no idea what to do.

Number 9.

One of my goals for fall is to finally start learning a new language. And to improve my half-forgotten French. 

Number 10.

I found some new book shelf ideas on Pinterest. I really need some more book cases and I think these are perfect.





Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful week!

  1. I love Orange is the New Black. I seriously was glued to the TV watching it. Slight addiction.

  2. Hi there!

    So what language do you want to learn? I think, it is always great to learn something new, this sounds really exciting!

    And of course, I love books, too, I have a lot of books, here at home, I want to read, and there are so many books I WANT, every time, I go on the amazon website. :-D I just can't help

    Have a great Tuesday!

    1. I would love to learn Dutch but I also always wanted to learn Swedish or Spanish or Italian. So we will see. Hopefully I will be able to learn all of them at some point in my life. :)

      My book wishlist is endless! There are so many! And I already own so many books so I need more space! :)

  3. I LOVE Orange is the new Black. Such a good show! I can't wait until they make another season. I'm excited to see how that new dress turns out for you! I bet it will be awesome! ~Stephanie

    1. I am so glad they renewed the show! It really is great!
      The dress arrived today and it fits! The colors look more bright in reality though but I kind of like that!

  4. 1. If you follow the blog you get updates from the blog. If you follow the person I think you get updates when they like a post or whatever. At least that's how I understand it! :P

    3. You have to post a pic when you get it!

    4. Ooh. I think I like European crime writers better than American ones. The writing style is different. And they don't feel the need to wrap it up with a stupid happy ending that ruins the book. :P No offense, Americans!

    10. I wish we had space to build bookshelves into walls and doors! So many neat ideas.

    1. 1. Ah okay, I understand. I was just confused to see that I only have a couple of followers, but the blog has some more. It really is weird that you can follow both separately.

      3. It just came in the mail and I tried it on. I will have to post a picture! It definitely fits. The colors look brighter in reality though. But I like that.

      4. I agree. My favorites are Skandinavian and Icelandic crime writers. And yeah, crime novels don't need a happy ending. I like that the Skandinavian books are all pretty brutal. Haha.

      10. I love these ideas so much. I wish I would have space for all of them!

  5. 1. I noticed that too. I only follow blogs. I think Alyssa the person has 15 followers. Haha.
    3. Cute!
    6. Yes!
    7. Since we caught up it's WEIRD to have to wait a WHOLE week for another episode!
    8. That SUCKS.
    9. I took French in high school and loved it. Would love to keep learning it!
    10. Love the first one!

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. 1. Yeah, it is pretty confusing. Katrin only has 6. :)
      7. Haha, yeah I can imagine! I watched the first 3 seasons like that and after that it was weird for me to wait too!
      8. I was able to fix the phone in the end. Thank God! I really don't want to buy a new phone right now.
      9. I took French in school too but I am kind of rusty so I need to work on it!

  6. sorry to hear about your phone, hopefully you can figure it out soon! I love the bookshelf that looks like it's falling, so creative. what language were you thinking of learning?

    1. I am so glad that I was able to fix the phone in the end. I had already given up hope.
      I thought about learning Dutch. I always wanted to speak that language. But I would also like to learn Spanish and Swedish. And I need to work on my Italian and French. Haha. I will probably start with Dutch. :)
      I love all these creative book shelves!

  7. I took time off from reading because I got so busy. However, I want to start making a list of all the books I want to accomplish reading throughout the year. I should subscribe to Amazon and see if my favorite author has any new books that been released!

    1. I always check if there are some new books from my favorite writers. I love reading so much and I always get so excited when I find something new to read. :)I should make a list like that too!

  8. We did a marathon watching of Orange is the new black. Now I'm sad there's no more to watch.

    Also, those bookshelves are awesome and I especially like the ones that look like they're falling. Very cute.

    1. I want to do a marathon too. I have watched 3 episodes so far, one each night. I have to watch some more over the weekend. Such a great show. I am glad they renewed it!

      Yeah, the falling one is really awesome! I need something like that too!

  9. as always, I like anything that holds books. some people even just stack up their books to the ceiling and don't use bookshelves, but I do love a good bookshelf.

    hope you're having a sweet day.

    1. i love the way it looks when you stack up all the books to the ceiling but unfortunately, that's not very practical! I mean, you have a problem when you want to read a book from the bottom.

      have a sweet day, lissa!

  10. Katrin, I just found duolingo because I want to try to regain some of my French knowledge as well. It's really easy and cute and free.

    1. That sounds awesome, Susi! Thanks so much for the tip! I will definitely check it out! Good luck with your French!

  11. Oh I love the door bookshelf!

    Take your iPhone to the apple store to fix it...my ex did that once. Naughty iPhone!

    1. The door book shelf is really awesome. And it saves you so much space. I would love to have one!

      In the end I was able to fix the phone. I am so glad. I had already given up. I wasn't even able to turn it on anymore. When I tried to connect it to iTunes then it only showed an error. I still don't know why it works now but I connected it to David's laptop and then it started working again. But you are right, I would have gone to the apple store otherwise. Although the phone is already 3 years old. :)

  12. Hallo Katrin! Thanks so much for your lovely comments! Your blgo is so cute! I really appreciate them and btw, I <3 Germany! I actually miss it, too...And yeah, BlogLovin' is a bit confusing for me, too. I don't understand why we've to follow two different ways, but as long as you link your blog on BlogLovin' and have someone follow it, then you're good to go! And oh my, small world, I started to watch "Orange is the New Black", too on NetFlix b/c someone mentioned about how good it was, and I only watched a bit of the first episode and forgot about it, haha! I was too busy packing for Spain now... OH MY WORD again, you've my favorite author....MANKELL!!!!! I read all of his series including Dogs of Riga! Can we be BFF? haha! We've so much in common! xx

    1. Hallo Rika,
      thanks so much for stopping by! I am so glad I discovered your blog and I can't wait to read more! I just read your "About me" page and I am so fascinated that I need to start reading the blog from the beginning!
      So cool that you love Germany! Do you have a favorite place there? I have seen that you traveled to Munich! Such a beautiful city!
      Bloglovin really is confusing! But I guess I am able to follow all my blogs and I also follow some people so that should be fine. :)
      Orange is the New Black is soo good! I can't wait to watch the 10 remaining episodes! So cool that you watch it too!
      Ah oh, so exciting! You love Mankell too? I own all of his books, I am such a big fan! Do you like Skandinavian crime? I can't get enough! And yeah, we definitely have to be BFF! :) We really seem to have a lot in common!
      Have a great day!
