The Rogue (Planets Shaken #1) by Lee W. Brainard | The Mishmash of events, people and ideas!

What would you do if you found out that an enormous comet was heading directly towards one of our neighbor-planets, which automatically puts in risk Earth and humankind?

What would you do if you knew that this is not some distant future and you only had a couple more years before the impact that could possibly change everything?  

Combining astronomy discoveries, scientific language and governmental conspiracy, «The Rogue» presents a dystopian world with backdrop of nowadays United States of America, where FBI and Homeland Security are portrayed more like men in black (and I am referring to their attire and not to the famous movie starring Will Smith), and remind a lot KGB in the Soviet Union.

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell | Literary Fiction disguised as a Thriller

I always thought of myself as a fan of any mystery/thriller premise. Any story revolving around crime. Characters trying to figure out what really happened. These were the main elements that sucked me in.

After reading «Then She Was Gone» by Lisa Jewell, I realized that I much prefer novels centered around the  “Who did it” question than “Why it happened”. There is just something so addicting about gathering clues, brainstorming and constantly questioning who the villain is!

Lisa Jewell gave us a different type of thriller – a character-driven mystery, showcasing the flawed people and their motives, instead of a fast-paced page-turner with an unpredictable turn of events.

Steelheart (The Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson | My first Brandon Sanderson book!

2019 has been the year of firsts.

There was the first book haul of 2019, the first disappointment of 2019 and now the first book by Brandon Sanderson. It’s exciting! What else do I get to try in 2019?

I’m not sure if this series was the best one to start with. I also own the first book in the Mistborn trilogy – «The Final Empire», however comparing these two books, Steelheart is much thinner with a bigger font. Seems like an obvious book choice to me! Besides, I love dystopian settings (I’m very excited to read Scythe which is next on my reading list! Technically it’s a Utopia, but still counts).

A Time of Blood by John Gwynne | Which “Of Blood and Bone” Character are You? QUIZ!


«A Time of Blood» – the second book Of Blood and Bone series by John Gwynne is coming out tomorrow, April 18th!

For everyone who doesn’t know or heard of this book, this is the second installment in Of Blood and Bone Fantasy series by John Gwynne, set in Banished Lands over 100 years after the events of The Faithful and the Fallen.

Do you need to read the first series?

Personally, I haven’t read The Faithful and the Fallen, but I definitely would love to pick it up at some point, even though I’m more attached to the current characters than the world itself.

But there might be some perks to reading the other series first. For example, this series definitely contains some spoilers to the first one, as it references a lot of historical events and past accomplishments. Also, it would be easier to jump into this series if you are already familiar with the world. (Although, I didn’t find it difficult or complicated to get into). And you might pick up more “hidden” references than a new reader.

Most Anticipated Releases | April 2019

Some month I struggle to find new books to add to this post. While other months, there are so many of them that it becomes difficult to narrow the list down. This was the case for April. This post could go on and on forever!

I can’t even imagine what May will be like. Most of my current ARCs will be published in May and I haven’t even checked other new releases yet. But one step at a time!
Let’s see what April brings us!

Tudor took the mystery of her second book to the new level by adding some surprising horror elements.
