Most Anticipated Releases | March 2019

There are some months that are filled with the new and most excited releases (it seems as though Publishers much prefer January / May and September over the other months!) and then there are months when I browse the New Releases page on GoodReads / BookDepository and other websites for many many hours, and still cannot find anything that excites me.

In March, there were only 7 books that looked somewhat promising.

March Goals | Or how to stay on track!

Let me start by saying that this post is not going to be a guide of any sort. More so a reminder to myself on how to stay focused on my Reading and Blogging Goals and learn to manage my time better because who doesn’t want that!

January & February 2019 | Wrap Up

Here I am writing blog posts instead of preparing a fictional court case for my civil practice class. That’s the dedication! To be fair, this post is long overdue. Basically since the end of January. So I think I have my priorities very straight. The fictional court case can wait. It is fictional after all!

The First BookHaul of 2019!

book haul

Many people begin the new year with clearing their bookshelves, to purge and make room for all the new releases of 2019. I, however, am still not ready to give away my books.

Besides, beginning the new year with a book haul, instead of an unhaul is so much more pleasurable! And that is what we are doing today.

Since my last haul in July 2018, I’ve accumulated another 17 books, featured below:

The Universe is Expanding and so am I by Carolyn Mackler |Don’t get fooled by the amazing cover!

the universe is expanding

Virginia Shreves is back in this follow up to «The Earth, my Butt and Other Big Round Things».

Q: Is it absolutely necessary to read the first book?

No, I haven’t read it and didn’t feel like I missed anything. Just treat this as a completely new book and you will be fine.

Q: Did it make me want to purchase and read the first book?

Also, no. I had a hard time connecting to any of the characters and only the shortness of the book made me plunge through it till the end.   Continue reading “The Universe is Expanding and so am I by Carolyn Mackler |Don’t get fooled by the amazing cover!”

June & July Wrap Up [2018] | Throne of Glass Obsession!

JUNE & JULY WRAP UP

It is the 12th of August as I am writing this and I’ve come to realize that: 

arrow 2

(A) the summer is almost over! There is only August left and, while I happen to live a walking distance from the beach, I’ve only gone a couple of times this year and I have to remedy this as soon as possible!

(B) I’ve been far more into fantasy this summer with a comparison to last year when all I practically read were contemporary and literary fiction all day every day. And

(C) Throne of Glass is actually an AMAZING SERIES WITH A LOT OF ACTION, DRAMA & BETRAYALS. Who would have thought that I’d fall in love with Throne of Glass, after absolutely hating the Court of Thorns and Roses?! It’s a mystery for me too.

*The list could go on and on. I love lists. But who doesn’t?

A debut novel by Juliet McDaniel is an absurd presentation of a socialite’s life, Maxine Simmons, in the late 60s – early 70s California – Palm Springs.
