Unpopular Bookish Opinions | Ft. The Hunger Games, Rainbow Shelves & Harry Potter!

Oh, this is going to be fun! This week, I’m actually doing the TTT (Top Ten Tuesday) theme without any twists. I thought it would be difficult to come up with unpopular opinion, but I had way more than 10 that I had to choose from to not make this post pages and pages long.

One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence | Mind-bending time traveling & great D&D campaigns!

Being a huge fan of MMO RPGs and a World of Warcraft addict for over 6 years, Mark Lawrence’s new YA Sci-fi book hit all the right buttons!

Filled to the brim with mysterious events, science, and Friday nights D&D sessions,  «One Word Kill» is a perfect mix of Stranger Things, Dark Matter and The Fault in Our Stars, with a very unique presentation of time traveling.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman | Immortality and Political Intrigue in the Utopian world where “murder” doesn’t exist! Or does it?

Neal Shusterman created a world where technological advances brought humanity to the point of immortality. There are no illnesses, no disease or viruses. The human system is equipped with smart nanites that can battle every natural cause of death. They provide the painkillers when necessary, they repair organs in case of damage. And if you happen to be “deadish”, the Thunderhead (the Artificial Intellect) employees will revive you in 3 to 4 days, without any consequences, and even offer the best ice cream you’ve ever had.

In this utopian world, where people can live for thousands of years, marry multiple times, have many children, the population growth has to be controlled. And that’s why the Sythedom was created. Separate from the Thunderhead, Scythedom is responsible for “gleaning” people.

June 2019 Goals | ARCs, beach, and many blogging plans!

I have many plans for June. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t pass as fast as all other months did! Is it me getting old or time just started to go faster than usual???

May was a great month for me in terms of everything, except books, as you probably saw from my Wrap Up post earlier this week.

16 Books From My Favorite Genres that I’m not interested in!

This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are supposed to talk about Favorite Books From Our Favorite Genre. However, since I already talked a lot about my favorite books and didn’t read that many fantastic books this year, I’ve decided to bring you the list of 10 books from my favorite genres that I’m not interested in.

Take a look at my thought process for this week’s TTT topic:

May 2019 Wrap Up | The Reading slump is not going to ruin my favorite month of the year!

May was good! And when I say good, I mean VERY GOOD. Maybe it’s the sunny weather, or my birthday, or this great community, or for all of these reasons combined I’ve been feeling incredible this past month, and I hope that June will be just the same but with a little bit more reading.

Before I recount everything that happened in May, I’d like to say BIG BIG THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who took time to like and comment on my posts! This community makes me so happy every single day.

May was great mostly because of your lovely comments, funny tweets, interesting posts and beautiful bookstagram feeds.

Most Anticipated Releases | June 2019

Unlike May, June doesn’t have 300 new books that I’m excited to read. In fact, I was only able to find 8 books I was interested in! (Which usually never happens, as I want to read everything and at the same time!)

My Good Reading Habits | Book Tag

Oh, this was not easy! I thought I was decent when it came to reading books, especially since I’ve been doing that since I was little. I thought, I might have developed some good habits along the way!

I was wrong.

It literally took me over 2 hours to come up with FOUR good reading habits. So that’s what we are going with today.

Thank you, Meghan for tagging me! This post really helped me realized that I need to develop some more reading habits. 😀

10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years to Add to My TBR!

It’s another Tuesday, which means Top Ten Tuesday time! As always I love joining in on the fun and creating content for specific themes. But (you probably already noticed) I always tend to rebel a little bit and give the theme a spin of my own!

This week’s TTT is Top 10 Favorite Books Released in the Last Ten Years, and the idea is to come up with one book per each year. I tend to always talk about my favorite books, so I didn’t feel like repeating something I’ve done before, therefore today I’m talking about my TBR. More specifically – 10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years that are still on my To-Be-Read List!

I went to my vast GoodReads TBR shelf and selected one book for each year that I’m the most excited to read.

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.

Mimic (#2 The Prodigy Chronicles) by C.L. Denault | My Guilty pleasure dystopian with the most unlikable main character!

There is a pattern that starts repeating itself over and over – I fall in love with the first book in the series, find the concept so interesting, and then get highly disappointed by the second book. Maybe my reading tastes are slowly changing, or maybe they keep suffering from the “second book syndrome”. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I saw that happening with the 2nd book in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. Also the 2nd book in the Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and the 2nd book in the Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare.

10 Most Gorgeous Books I Own and Won’t Let Anyone Touch!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Books I refuse to let anyone touch”, and this could be interpreted in different ways – “books so bad I refuse to let anyone read them”; “my favorites books I wouldn’t let to anyone” or, something I decided to talk about today – “the most gorgeous books I refuse to let anyone touch with their greasy fingers!

I don’t own that many beautiful hardcover books because (A) Paperbacks are way cheaper and (B) I don’t really care to collect all the hardcovers. I mostly pick up the books I’m really interested in over the pretty covers. But if I would have an unlimited budget for my book shopping sprees, I’d definitely get all those gorgeous hardcovers I always drool over at the book shops!

Hiding by Henry Turner | An attempt at a “Plot Twist” Book.

«Hiding» by Henry Turner is a YA mystery novel, told from the perspective of a teenage boy who snuck in his ex-girlfriend’s house. The events of the whole book happen during a very short period of time, however, we get quite a lot of flashbacks, memories, explanations, and feelings.
