Today I will write a good old book review. I’ll give you my spoiler-free thoughts on The Solitude of Prime Numbers. Let’s get started!
Goodreads / Amazon blurb:
A prime number is a lonely thing. It can only be divided by itself or by one, and it never truly fits with another. Alice and Mattia are both “primes”-misfits haunted by early tragedies. When the two meet as teenagers, they recognize in each other a kindred, damaged spirit. Years later, a chance encounter reunites them and forces a lifetime of concealed emotion to the surface. But can two prime numbers ever find a way to be together? A brilliantly conceived and elegantly written debut novel, The Solitude of Prime Numbers is a stunning meditation on loneliness, love, and what it means to be human.
Content warning: eating disorder, self-harm, homophobia, discrimination based on mental health,… (These are the ones I can remember.)

Hey, how are you? I hope you’re having a great day. If you follow the book community a bit, you might have noticed the controversy around Marie Kondo a while back. I believe she said in her new Netflix show ‘Tidying Up with Marie Kondo’ that people should reflect on the books they own and only keep those that spark joy. If a hundred spark joy, then keep a hundred. If it’s two, then keep two. You get the gist. I think it’s a lovely idea. I also try to be selective of the books I have in my collection. She also said that for her personally 30 books was the right amount to keep. That’s where the controversy started as some people thought she meant everyone should get rid of all their books but thirty. Anyway, this post isn’t about the controversy. However, that number of thirty books got me thinking; what if I only kept thirty books? Continue reading

Hey everyone! How are you? Today I’ll be sharing my monthly bullet journal set-up. When brainstorming a theme, my thoughts went to Valentine’s Day and love, since it’s the month of love.
