Classic-a-Month Reading Challenge | March and April Wrap Up

The year started strong with «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen and then February came along with another case of reading slump. Most likely due to me trying to finish «The Book Thief» by Markus Zusak that I started in late August and just not enjoying it at all. It was a great story, but the writing or the Portuguese translation just didn’t get me into the world created by the author, but more about that below.

Den of Shadows by Christopher Byford | One of the few books that did not grip my attention at all!

Some books lure you in with pretty blurbs and colourful covers but then the quality of the actual content is still a hit or miss situation. This one was a total and complete miss. It’s been a while since I read a book where I couldn’t find a single thing that I would enjoy. It’s a shame because I really thought I would like it. Let’s see what exactly didn’t lie well with me.

The Series I Started Reading But Didn’t Keep Up With!

This is going to be a long one. Make sure to brew a cup of coffee to keep you awake while powering through a list of ALL OF THE SERIES I’VE STARTED BUT AM YET TO FINISH. To make my (and your) life a little bit easier, I decided to split them to three categories (A) series I am absolutely 100% carrying on with, (B) series I might consider reading in the future, and (C) series I will never pick up again.

I am already scared to begin this crazy revelation because by the end of this post I might end up on BookDepository buying all the books in all the series and we cannot let this happen! Continue reading “The Series I Started Reading But Didn’t Keep Up With!”

Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh | The new series (trilogy?) I already added to my TBR list!

The first time I heard about «Flame in the Mist» by Renée Ahdieh, and I have to be honest here, it did not catch my attention at all. The only thing that interested me was the fact that Renée Ahdieh was already an author to another successful fantasy series (that I unfortunately haven’t read yet! When do I find time to read all of the series I want to read?? When??? )

After a careful thought on the subject and pushing away the terrifying idea of not being able to connect to the Japanese culture, I decided to give it a try. Thank you NetGalley and PENGUIN GROUP Penguin Young Readers Group for the free ARC of this wonderful novel! As always, it in no way affected my opinion on this book.

The One by John Marrs | Do you believe in Soul Mates? What if science decided it for you?

How far would you go to find THE ONE?

One simple mouth swab is all it takes.

One tiny DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for. Continue reading “The One by John Marrs | Do you believe in Soul Mates? What if science decided it for you?”
