Birthday Book Haul & Book Series Obsession

Bday bookhaul

Uhh… I’m not sure how this happened, but I am definitely not complaining!

A combination of birthday wishes (i.e. BOOKS) + seasonal sales (i.e. BOOKS) + gift cards (i.e. BOOKS) results in another huge book haul! And that means I have to finally put my Kindle down and actually start reading my physical TBR.

Less than a month ago, I’ve posted my May book haul with a TBR poll. This time, please comment down below what book should I read first or which one is your favorite!  Continue reading “Birthday Book Haul & Book Series Obsession”

The Marvelous Adventures of Gwendolyn Gray by B.A. Williamson | A perfect dystopian tale for a middle-grade audience (and not only!)

marvelous adventures of gwendolyn gray

Have you ever thought that a middle-grade novel could have the perfect plot of a dystopian world? Neither did I! And I was pleasantly surprised by the world created by B.A. Williamson in this book. If someone decides to make a movie based on this story, I will be the first buying cinema tickets!

Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile

CURRENT READS WEEK 24

It is currently 10th of June, but it feels like 160th days of January (I did the math, today is, officially, the 160th day of the year and end of Week 23) because the weather has been abnormally horrible, the summer doesn’t seem to rush to Portugal this year. I feel sorry for the numerous tourists who decided that May / June were the perfect months to come out on holidays. (which they usually are!).

Gray sky, cold wind and rainy evenings aside, let’s actually talk about some books, shall we? Continue reading “Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile”

This Is Not a Love Letter by Kim Purcell | A Suspenseful love story with wide spectrum of important topics

this is not a love letter

«In your neat handwriting, you wrote that I reminded you of sunshine and sunflowers, which is kind of funny because sunflowers are so stinky that stink bugs love them. I didn’t keep that love letter, and I’m sorry. It wasn’t that they didn’t mean anything, but I’m not sentimental like that.»

Surprisingly, «This is not a Love Letter» by Kim Purcell didn’t show up very often on the social media. In fact, not a single bookstagram account that I follow featured this on their page at any point during January or beginning of February. Which I found rather starnge considering that (A) this book has a gorgeous cover, (B) it’s a YA contemporary that is incredibly popular and (C) it’s incredibly mysterious and emotional!   Continue reading “This Is Not a Love Letter by Kim Purcell | A Suspenseful love story with wide spectrum of important topics”

These posts are dangerous. Dangerous to my shelves and most importantly my wallet. Just when I thought I would give my wallet and bank account some rest from all the bookish purchases (my birthday was last month and I went a little bit overboard with book orders, oops…)  here we are with more exciting new releases.

Spring Wrap Up 2018 | Life, Blog & Reading Update

SPRING UPDATE

What seemed like rather uneventful 5 months, turned out to be a very busy time looking back. That is why I love doing wrap-ups so much, they give a perfect overview of my life, of things I did and things still to be done in the future.

This year started just as any other year, with celebrations, hopes and many promises to myself that (A) I will finally go to the gym and (B) get my life under control. I’m glad to announce that I kept at least one promise to myself, and have been going to the gym for the past 4 months! Continue reading “Spring Wrap Up 2018 | Life, Blog & Reading Update”

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi | 20 Things you should know before venturing into Furthermore

furthemore

No matter how inviting magical worlds might be, one should never go unprepared and under-informed into the unknown. Especially when the unknown is a large world filled to the brim with mischief, treachery and magical secrets.

But DO NOT FEAR!

It is my job and duty to prepare curious boys and girls like you to the uncontrollable magic of Furthermore, as it is a far more dangerous place than you might let yourself to believe. Continue reading “Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi | 20 Things you should know before venturing into Furthermore”

6 Games you ought to know before reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

READY PLAYER ONE

I remember the first time I read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and how curious I was to discover and learn more about Art, Novels and obscure references used by the author.

This same feeling hit me when I was reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. When so much work goes into one novel, it is impossible to not want to learn more, to understand all of the references and to “educate” yourself on all of the 80s pop culture present in the book.
