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.

March Wrap Up | 2017

Days are getting longer and brighter, there are so much more you can squeeze into 24 hours. That must be one of the main reasons why I love Spring so much. Spring usually came with greenness and flowers, rustling of new leaves and tweets, but since I moved to Portugal there is no distinctive season transition as I was used to before and I grew to love the daylight savings (the only change, besides temperature, that announces a new season).

Comparing to February, March was a “catching up” and “try to stay away from reading slump” month. I was able to catch up with my Classic a Month Reading Challenge, read some ARCs due in April and May, and just to enjoy my reading time overall. Continue reading “March Wrap Up | 2017”

Classic a Month | Reading Challenge

The new year started on a very high note, with many new books and of course with the first classic of the year – «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen. I bought this beautiful (very classic) edition in Russian and absolutely devoured it!

It turned out to be way more interesting than I expected it to be, as I am not a fan of romances (and for some reason I associated it to be a pure romance) but it was so much more! It’s one of the best «character» novels that I’ve ever read.   Continue reading “Classic a Month | Reading Challenge”

My Most Anticipated Releases | March 2017

No month is quite the same in terms of book releases as the one that marks the beginning of a New Year. If I remember correctly, my ‘most anticipated books post’ in the month of January had over 10 different novels spread across a variety of genres. February brought us fewer exciting releases but still held its ground.

Now, March… This is the month that marks a new season – fresh, green and rejuvenated. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the books to be released during this marvelous time of the year. Continue reading “My Most Anticipated Releases | March 2017”
