The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares | An exquisite web of complicated family relationships

Where do I even begin?

There are certain rules I make myself follow when it comes to ARCs that I receive for a review, or any other books in general:

  1. Don’t read too much about the book or author before reading it;
  2. Don’t read any reviews before writing down my own thoughts;
  3. Don’t hurry into rating the book you are not sure about; and
  4. It is okay to change your rating few days after when all the thoughts and feelings had time to sink in.

I was particularly excited about this novel, written by the famous Ann Brashares, author of the well-renowned «The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants». I must admit that I’ve never read the book, but I watched and loved all of the movies, starring my beloved Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel.

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova | If I could take out all of the good parts and make a book out of it, I would!

There are times when books seem alright at the beginning, then you slowly start to hate every moment of reading it, but afterwards come some parts that you enjoy very much and then an ending you just want to get it over with ASAP, like ripping off a bandage. Maybe you’ve never had such experience before, but I sure have and I am here to share it with you.

«The Shadow Land» is a mystery historical fiction set in Bulgaria, following adventures of young american woman, Alexandra, on her arrival to a foreign country. Continue reading “The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova | If I could take out all of the good parts and make a book out of it, I would!”

GoodReads Tag | Everything about my crazy reading schedule!

Big thank you to the wonderful fellow blogger Mandy @BookPrincessReviews for tagging me! I am honestly so happy that people still tag me even though I’ve been sooo lazy with tags! Thank you very very much!

GoodReads was one of those first bookish apps I ever had on my phone, followed later on by Amino Books and numerous others (until my phone protested to me installing any app due to the lack of memory, although I think he was just tired of my bookish obsession. Yes, my phone is a he. We have daily conversations and got to know each other fairly well. Let me if you want to know more about the day-to-day life of me and my pal phone.)

Abigale Hall by Lauren A. Forry | Was it a bad idea to read it at night?

Surprisingly this book had already been published, about a year ago, by a different publisher, but this edition was publsihed very recently – on 11th of April!

This is actually my first book by Lauren A. Forry and first “scary psychological thriller” in quite a long time. I read thrillers ALL THE TIME but they are usually not “horror scary”, more like “mystery scary”.  Continue reading “Abigale Hall by Lauren A. Forry | Was it a bad idea to read it at night?”

What I Read During COSY READING NIGHT!

On a peaceful Saturday morning, after opening my eyes around 7 am and wishing to just fall asleep again (we all know that once you are awake, you are awake for good!), my first thought was: “Let me catch up on some booktube action from this week!”

And so I cuddled up with my tablet under a warm cosy duvet and started watching my favourite bookstagrammers. When video by MercysBookishMusings caught my attention! She was talking about something exciting that took place on the very same day! COSY READING NIGHT on February 11th! You can already imagine my excitement.

Why do I love being a Book Blogger?

For my blog’s 1 year anniversary in the month of March I decided to share with you all the reasons why I love to blog. There is no specific date, but last month in 2016 was when I finally got over my fears and created this wonderful thing that consumes all of my free time!

This started of as “my own space where I can store all the memorable bookish moments” and turned out to be “thoughts shared with hundreds of other readers and book lovers” and that is truly wonderful! Continue reading “Why do I love being a Book Blogger?”
