What do you imagine your blog to look like and what does it take to make it a reality?

Do you ever think about how to make your blog look exactly the way you want? Do you find yourself changing the themes / colours / lay out every so often to satisfy your aesthetic needs? Because I do that on a daily basis. Okay, maybe not daily, but at least few times per month I need to change some little things, even though most of the time you won’t even notice the change.

This comes from two places: (1) I am a huge control freak and everything out of my reach will drive me crazy, (2) appearance of my blog makes AN ENORMOUS difference on my writing mood! Continue reading “What do you imagine your blog to look like and what does it take to make it a reality?”

All the Good Things by Clare Fisher | An inspiring yet heartbreaking, character driven novel that will make you feel happy and sad at the same time

There is nothing better than a book that makes you fall in love with it from the very first pages. When the sentences flow so well together that you are instantly teleported to this new world. When the characters become so dear to your heart that you laugh, cry with them and for them until the very end of the book. When your heart is filled to the brim that after finishing the book you need some off time to nurse this feeling for a little longer.

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova | If I could take out all of the good parts and make a book out of it, I would!

There are times when books seem alright at the beginning, then you slowly start to hate every moment of reading it, but afterwards come some parts that you enjoy very much and then an ending you just want to get it over with ASAP, like ripping off a bandage. Maybe you’ve never had such experience before, but I sure have and I am here to share it with you.

«The Shadow Land» is a mystery historical fiction set in Bulgaria, following adventures of young american woman, Alexandra, on her arrival to a foreign country. Continue reading “The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova | If I could take out all of the good parts and make a book out of it, I would!”

Why do I love being a Book Blogger?

For my blog’s 1 year anniversary in the month of March I decided to share with you all the reasons why I love to blog. There is no specific date, but last month in 2016 was when I finally got over my fears and created this wonderful thing that consumes all of my free time!

This started of as “my own space where I can store all the memorable bookish moments” and turned out to be “thoughts shared with hundreds of other readers and book lovers” and that is truly wonderful! Continue reading “Why do I love being a Book Blogger?”

Excited for November | TBR 2016

“November comes and November goes,
With the last red berries and the first white snows.

With night coming early, and dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket and frost by the gate.

The fires burn and the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest until next spring.”
–  Elizabeth Coatsworth

Can you tell how excited I am for November and all the wonderful books on my TBR list??! Continue reading “Excited for November | TBR 2016”

October 2016 | Wrap Up

The reading slump is real! Please, please, go away?!
