I usually dedicate so much time talking about books, characters, plots, book covers, that the authors, whose valuable time and effort went into all those wonderful books, are left on the side benches waiting for their turn.
This is changing today!
As a way to review my reading in 2018, I compiled 2018 in a Glance page that is already up on my blog. Basically, the idea was the same as last year – to have a graphic representation of a few main information, for example, the total books read, best books of the year, most read genres and so on.
While preparing the end-of-the-year-page, I noticed that I haven’t read that many great books in 2018. However, there were certain authors that were either new to me and I would love to continue reading more from, or authors that were no longer for me, as my reading tastes keep changing every year.

Where do I even begin?! Last summer, around the same time, I read and fell in love with the new series by Cassandra Clare, more specifically «Lady Midnight» the first book in the Dark Artifices series. Being a fan of the Shadowhunter world for so long, I could have never imagined that a time would come when I didn’t like a book written by Cassandra Clare.

Just like the previous month, I will not be making a TBR list because (A) I am not sure what exactly I want to read and (B) it seemed to work better for me when I didn’t have to follow the list, but instead set up some small goals that I will strive to achieve during the month. Continue reading “July TBR 2017 | The month of massive fantasy series! + Reading Poll!” →
It is that time of the month to check the list of all new releases and pick the ones I am absolutely dying to read right away! In my previous post, May TBR, I’ve already mentioned tons of excited books that I am going to read this month, so you might see few familiar titles. Continue reading “My Most Anticipated Releases | May 2017” →
Let me tell you one thing – I read this book in one day! (I know I might be crazy, but I couldn’t stop reading… I just couldn’t, okay?)
It all started on an early Saturday morning (more precisely at 7 am, because I am a weirdo and even during the weekends I wake up super early), when I decided to have a relaxing day, i.e. do nothing else but reading. Continue reading “Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare | A gripping monster of a book” →
It feels like July was the busiest month so far (and it feels like I say that every month), equally so at work and “school”. I finally finished my papers for the Lawyers Bar and delivered them in the last week of July! The first phase is done, over, completed… I intend to not think about it for at least 8 more happy weeks. Continue reading “July 2016 Wrap UP” →
July will be a fun month, and I hope to be able to read way more books than in the previous months, although it will just as busy. But, I can definitely do it!
The books I am hoping to read in July are: Continue reading “July TBR & Currently Reading” →
I’ve read a total of six books in June, which I am more than happy about as it has been a very hectic and busy month and, what is even more impressive is that I managed to actually write some reviews on them! (Pep talk for myself right here.)
I’ve started this one at the very end of May, but finished in June so I am counting it towards my June wrap up. It’s a second novel in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Series. The third book is on my July TBR list. Trying to read and hopefully review them all before the movie comes out.
I am enjoying it quite a lot so far. Although I thought I would like it more… if that makes sense.
As all of you probably already know (as I have been talking about it a lot on every social media possible!), I am participating in a Read-A-Long of A Song of Ice and Fire series. In June we all read the first book of the series.
It was a reread for me and I really enjoyed it. The only downside is that it made me want to watch the first season of the T.V. show… and I just can’t afford to spend time on it right now!
June was a month of book series and trilogies for me! I’ve started yet another series – Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. And yet again, I thought I would like it more than I did… Maybe it’s the hype around it, perhaps the next books will be better.. (at least I hope so).
Nice Girls Endure by Chris Struyk-Bonn is an amazing novel that is coming out in August this year. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the arc. I will try to post the review closer to the release date so it would be more relevant.
Finally, I was in the mood for some very light reading, so I picked up one of the inumerous short crime novels that I own and…. was completely disappointed. One day I might show you all my huge collection of pocket-size books (wink, wink).
And! The star (no puns intended) of the month of June (drum roll please!) – was Attachments by Rainbow Rowell! Completely in love with her writing. If you want to read more of my few hundred words rambling, be sure to check out the review I posted last month.
