6 Games you ought to know before reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

READY PLAYER ONE

I remember the first time I read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and how curious I was to discover and learn more about Art, Novels and obscure references used by the author.

This same feeling hit me when I was reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. When so much work goes into one novel, it is impossible to not want to learn more, to understand all of the references and to “educate” yourself on all of the 80s pop culture present in the book.

Most Anticipated Releases | April 2018

Monthly post on the exciting new releases is finally back!

My To-Be-Read bookshelf on GoodReads has been slowly decreasing in size and that is not acceptable. Maybe I should rename it to “To-Be-Bought” instead? Because I feel that I only add books I am 100% sure I will eventually purchase and everything else is left forgotten and unnoticed. Although, many times I end up buying something that is not even on the shelf.  Or maybe I am just scared of getting lost in my big virtual TBR pile? But that is subject for some other time.  Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | April 2018”

MOBILE APPS

No matter where I am or what I am doing, I am always on my phone.

Today I am going to share with you the apps I found extremely helpful that I use on daily basis, each one serving its own specific purpose. Continue reading “Mobile Apps I use every day | For Blogging, Reading and Bookstagram”

In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be

in deep water

There were years in my reading life when I solely read crime, thrillers, and mysteries. I’ve accumulated quite a collection of books in that particular genre and sometimes the need for something a little bit more mysterious comes knocking on the door, making it impossible to resist.

During one of those whims, I’ve requested «In Deep Water» by Sam Blake on NetGalley. Thank you to NetGalley and to Bonnier Zaffre for a free ARC of this book. Continue reading “In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be”

Children’s Graphic Novels | How did children’s books get so sinister?

CHILDREN'S

Happy Monday! Let’s start this week with something a little bit different and take a look at the new children’s fiction. I requested a few graphic novels from NetGalley, because frankly I was interested to see what kind of books kids read nowadays, and decided to combine all three reviews in one post. Continue reading “Children’s Graphic Novels | How did children’s books get so sinister?”

the toymakers

No matter how many books I devour every year, it is incredible to see that there are still books out there that are able to amaze me with beautiful, emotional writing, magical settings, and touching events.

This was my first book by Robert Dinsdale and it definitely won’t be the last one! I am still battling with my inner self whether I should add this book to my 2018 favorites list or not. If I would have a “2018 most memorable reads” shelf, it would automatically earn its place there.
