According to the Astronomical calendar, Autumn begins today, on the 22nd of September! And to celebrate the beginning of Autumn I thought I’d share the list of the books I am most excited to read during this wonderful season!

Let’s start with my physical TBR pile. Most of these books are recent purchases and I can’t wait to pick one of them up on a cozy rainy day. Continue reading “Books I am reading this Autumn!”

My rating system | Does it really work?

This is a very long-coming post. Usually, when people start a book blog, rating protocol is one of the first things they think about. Afterall, that is what you will be doing for the most part of the blog – reviewing and rating books. On almost every blog you can find the rating system and its explanation to help people situate themselves within the wide array of stars, roses, tea cups and other symbols picked by thousands of book bloggers.

It took me over a year to figure out what exactly I want my ratings to represent. Continue reading “My rating system | Does it really work?”

July Wrap Up 2017 | Reading Slump & Booktube-a-Thon

Is it just me or each month flies by quicker and quicker? I am here again to look back at the passing month and gather my thoughts before jumping into August.

July was a month of ups and downs. After my great reading in May and June, I expected July to be the same, especially because my anticipated books finally arrived and I was ready to dive in! But… it turned out I was very very wrong.

Let’s start from the beginning! Continue reading “July Wrap Up 2017 | Reading Slump & Booktube-a-Thon”

Booktube-a-Thon 2017 | I did it! Completed challenges and wrap up!

I was battling between the ideas of including this post in my July wrap up or writing a separate dedicated post just for the read-a-thon, and as my first ever reading event, I decided that it deserved its own well rounded conclusion!

I DID IT! I MANAGED TO COMPLETE ALL OF THE CHALLENGES!  

It was a very intense reading week, as I usually don’t read that much, but it feels good to overcome my reading slump that haunted me from the beginning of July and actually make some progress through my TBR pile.

Why do I love reading ARCs?

Not so long ago, more precisely during the month of my blog anniversary, I rambled about my love for blogging. You can check the post here «Why do I love being a book blogger?» (Shameless Self Promotion 101).

And today I’ve decided to continue this rambling series and talk a little bit about my love for something else. Continue reading “Why do I love reading ARCs?”

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.
