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.

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.

No matter where I am or what I am doing, I am always on my phone. There are just so many things to check and do that my phone became a non-replaceable helper when it comes to tracking my TO-DO lists throughout the day, being active on social media, look for inspiration on Pinterest, browse through different lifestyle and bookish blogs, and much more.
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”
I was supposed to finish my Book Haul post today, but instead, here I am writing an update on everything blog, books and life-related.
It’s been a very long time since I posted anything slightly more personal, and I miss my Monthly Goals posts where I plan ahead and give you a little bit more information about what I am hoping to achieve in the upcoming month. Thus I’ve decided to combine my usual TO-DO checklist with a few updates on what has been going on in my life behind the screen. Continue reading “Goals and Life Update | How I deal with day to day struggles”
Don’t even think that I have it all figured out when it comes to staying on top of reviewing books. No, I struggle just as much as everyone else and sometimes even more. However! Being a perfectionist and just a person who easily gets nervous when too many things start to pile up, I had to learn some tricks that would pull the weight off my shoulders and help me to power through the huge TO-DO list.

The spooky 31st night of October is approaching and there is nothing quite like scary stories to add to the Halloween spirit. Not everyone celebrates this holiday, but each year there are more and more adepts of wearing creepy costumes and eating abnormal amount of candies (thanks to the Americanization!).
Books about ghosts was the obvious choice. After all Halloween began as a pagan holiday – Samhain, when the veil between the world of the living and the dead was so thin, people believed that spirits could cross over. Bonfires and costumes were supposed to ward them off. Continue reading “Books about Ghosts to Read this Halloween!”
I’ve been loving this monthly “meme” of mine – looking for new releases, see what everyone else is excited about and just staying on top of the bookish market. So of course October was not going to be an exception and here I am once more to list all of the new books I am the most excited about!
We had a massive influx of new and exciting books in September, and October is kind of falling behind, not being able to weigh up to September’s hype. But that is alright, we, readers, do need calmer months to make sure we have the time to read ALL OF THOSE BOOKS! Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | October 2017”
According to the Astronomical calendar, Autumn begins today, on the 22nd of September! And to celebrate the beginning of Autumn I thought I’d share the list of the books I am most excited to read during this wonderful season!
Let’s start with my physical TBR pile. Most of these books are recent purchases and I can’t wait to pick one of them up on a cozy rainy day. Continue reading “Books I am reading this Autumn!”
