The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr |An unbelievable adventure through memories or the tricks of a cruel mind?

I tend to rate the books I read right after I finish them, the memories are vivid, my heart is pounding and I probably just wiped the remaining tears from my cheeks – there is no better moment to decide how much I loved the book.

However, from time to time, after a couple of days, weeks or even months, I go back and change the rating after reflecting on it for a while.

The same happened to this book, I gave it full 5 stars after reading it in one sitting. After few days of constantly thinking: “Was it really that flawless?” I had to change it to 4 stars, and share my thoughts with all of you!

May 2017 TBR | A month of ARC catching up!

Something exciting happened last month! I received the best present ever (besides a huge stack of books that I am going to haul in the next couple of days), I received my first ever Kindle Paperwhite!

I used to read all of my e-books on the Android Kindle app for my phone, but now! I can read when it’s sunny, I can read in the dark, I can read anywhere and everywhere and my eyes are grateful for the non-reflective screen!

This made me so excited that I went a little bit (A LOT) crazy with my NetGalley requests. Guilty! To my surprise almost all of them got approved! Which put me on top of a huge ARC e-book pile that I can’t climb down from. Continue reading “May 2017 TBR | A month of ARC catching up!”

There is a very special person who always believes in me, no matter what I do or what phase I go through. Thank you very much for always being there for me! Continue reading “April Wrap Up | 2017”

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.
