Most Anticipated Releases | April 2018

Monthly post on the exciting new releases is finally back!

My To-Be-Read bookshelf on GoodReads has been slowly decreasing in size and that is not acceptable. Maybe I should rename it to “To-Be-Bought” instead? Because I feel that I only add books I am 100% sure I will eventually purchase and everything else is left forgotten and unnoticed. Although, many times I end up buying something that is not even on the shelf.  Or maybe I am just scared of getting lost in my big virtual TBR pile? But that is subject for some other time.  Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | April 2018”

Mobile Apps I use every day | For Blogging, Reading and Bookstagram

MOBILE APPS

No matter where I am or what I am doing, I am always on my phone. There are just so many things to check and do that my phone became a non-replaceable helper when it comes to tracking my TO-DO lists throughout the day, being active on social media, look for inspiration on Pinterest, browse through different lifestyle and bookish blogs, and much more.

Today I am going to share with you the apps I found extremely helpful that I use on daily basis, each one serving its own specific purpose. Continue reading “Mobile Apps I use every day | For Blogging, Reading and Bookstagram”

In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be

in deep water

There were years in my reading life when I solely read crime, thrillers, and mysteries. I’ve accumulated quite a collection of books in that particular genre and sometimes the need for something a little bit more mysterious comes knocking on the door, making it impossible to resist.

During one of those whims, I’ve requested «In Deep Water» by Sam Blake on NetGalley. Thank you to NetGalley and to Bonnier Zaffre for a free ARC of this book. Continue reading “In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be”

Children’s Graphic Novels | How did children’s books get so sinister?

CHILDREN'S

Happy Monday! Let’s start this week with something a little bit different and take a look at the new children’s fiction. I requested a few graphic novels from NetGalley, because frankly I was interested to see what kind of books kids read nowadays, and decided to combine all three reviews in one post.

The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale | The most magical story I’ve ever had a pleasure to read

the toymakers

No matter how many books I devour every year, it is incredible to see that there are still books out there that are able to amaze me with beautiful, emotional writing, magical settings, and touching events.

This was my first book by Robert Dinsdale and it definitely won’t be the last one! I am still battling with my inner self whether I should add this book to my 2018 favorites list or not. If I would have a “2018 most memorable reads” shelf, it would automatically earn its place there.

It’s been a very long time since I posted anything slightly more personal, and I miss my Monthly Goals posts where I plan ahead and give you a little bit more information about what I am hoping to achieve in the upcoming month. Thus I’ve decided to combine my usual TO-DO checklist with a few updates on what has been going on in my life behind the screen. Continue reading “Goals and Life Update | How I deal with day to day struggles”

January & February Wrap Up 2018 | A very slow start to the New Year!

jan&feb wrap up

Is it too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year?! Because I feel like I haven’t done that yet on my blog.  

I had a very slow start this time around. It is taking me forever to sort everything blog and reading related, and get back on track. Which is sad, because I love blogging and everything that comes with it, and when I put it aside, there is a part of me that is missing. But that is a story for another time!
