My first experience with AudioBooks | «To Die For» by Alice Clark-Platts

After thinking about audio books and hearing everyone’s love towards them on blogs and YouTube, I decided to give them a try. I found a free, very short novel on Audibooks.com – only an hour and ten minutes, «To Die For» by Alice Clark-Platts, narrated by Rachel Bavidge. And I must say that it was a great way to spend an hour of my time. Continue reading “My first experience with AudioBooks | «To Die For» by Alice Clark-Platts”

Gambit by C.L.Denault | Another dystopian series to add to my TBR list!

It looks like quite a lot of new dystopian novels will be released this year! And I am very excited about that as I prefer a good dystopian novel to anything else! They are usually full of fights, intelligent inventions and worlds that could very easily be ours. Continue reading “Gambit by C.L.Denault | Another dystopian series to add to my TBR list!”

What do you imagine your blog to look like and what does it take to make it a reality?

Do you ever think about how to make your blog look exactly the way you want? Do you find yourself changing the themes / colours / lay out every so often to satisfy your aesthetic needs? Because I do that on a daily basis. Okay, maybe not daily, but at least few times per month I need to change some little things, even though most of the time you won’t even notice the change.

This comes from two places: (1) I am a huge control freak and everything out of my reach will drive me crazy, (2) appearance of my blog makes AN ENORMOUS difference on my writing mood! Continue reading “What do you imagine your blog to look like and what does it take to make it a reality?”

Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success by Angela Duckworth | Where I found out that I wasn’t gritty enough to finish this book

We have gathered here tonight (today? depending on where you are at) to talk about Non-fiction!

Usually when I see non-fiction book stands at the stores I automatically turn away and go look for genres I am more interested in, i.e. everything else. But when I saw this book on NetGalley many many months ago, it instantly caught my attention. Who doesn’t want to get into an inner circle of successful people and learn their secrets? I surely did!

As you all know, May was an amazing month of popular book releases. June will be a little bit quieter and there are a few books that I am not as excited about as everyone else, but I will include them in a separate category for people that might be anticipating.

Why are Reviews the lesser viewed posts and why do we keep writing them?!

When I first started my blog in March last year I wasn’t a blog reader. I didn’t follow any bookish blogs or any blogs for that matter. All I was looking for is a space of my own where I can keep my thoughts and opinions on recently read books. And if you scroll all the way down to my very first posts, they all consisted of reviews, because What else should I blog about if all I do is read books?! Continue reading “Why are Reviews the lesser viewed posts and why do we keep writing them?!”

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss

This is probably one of the most beautiful contemporary books I’ve ever read. And if this is not enough to make you instantly pick up this book, I intend to praise it for another page or two – no matter how long it takes for me to convince you that THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER AND YOU NEED TO READ IT! (Did it work???) Continue reading “Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss”

Goals June 2017 | When TBR is not enough to cover all the “wants” in my head

The most important thing that I noticed about myself ever since I’ve started this blog is that the better and more productive the month is,  the more I want to achieve. Working on something that is only my own and seeing it coming together to more or less where I want it to be is a great, satisfying feeling! (Highly recommend to anyone, even if it’s as small as starting an Instagram page!) Continue reading “Goals June 2017 | When TBR is not enough to cover all the “wants” in my head”
