Classic a Month | Reading Challenge

The new year started on a very high note, with many new books and of course with the first classic of the year – «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen. I bought this beautiful (very classic) edition in Russian and absolutely devoured it!

It turned out to be way more interesting than I expected it to be, as I am not a fan of romances (and for some reason I associated it to be a pure romance) but it was so much more! It’s one of the best «character» novels that I’ve ever read.   Continue reading “Classic a Month | Reading Challenge”

My Most Anticipated Releases | March 2017

No month is quite the same in terms of book releases as the one that marks the beginning of a New Year. If I remember correctly, my ‘most anticipated books post’ in the month of January had over 10 different novels spread across a variety of genres.

This was the first middle grade novel that I’ve read in years! I was longing for something magical and light, therefore middle grade seemed like a good choice. (Nothing is quite as good as Harry Potter though). And honestly, I had so much fun reading this! It was one of those “right place, right time” books, and should I add “right mood”?

I think there is a wide variety of very good middle grade books that are definitely worth picking up and if you are looking for something magical, very light and at some points extremely weird, this might be the book for you!
