The «Who Am I» Tag | Or an actual reason for doing those fun personality tests on-line!

As I am slowly approaching 500 followers on my blog (how insane is that?!) I finally decided to work on one of the tags I’ve been meaning to write for ages, and what can be better than giving you some extra information about myself! (not self absorbed at all!)

Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success by Angela Duckworth | Where I found out that I wasn’t gritty enough to finish this book

We have gathered here tonight (today? depending on where you are at) to talk about Non-fiction!

Usually when I see non-fiction book stands at the stores I automatically turn away and go look for genres I am more interested in, i.e. everything else. But when I saw this book on NetGalley many many months ago, it instantly caught my attention. Who doesn’t want to get into an inner circle of successful people and learn their secrets? I surely did!

Why are Reviews the lesser viewed posts and why do we keep writing them?!

When I first started my blog in March last year I wasn’t a blog reader. I didn’t follow any bookish blogs or any blogs for that matter. All I was looking for is a space of my own where I can keep my thoughts and opinions on recently read books. And if you scroll all the way down to my very first posts, they all consisted of reviews, because What else should I blog about if all I do is read books?!

Goals June 2017 | When TBR is not enough to cover all the “wants” in my head

The most important thing that I noticed about myself ever since I’ve started this blog is that the better and more productive the month is,  the more I want to achieve. Working on something that is only my own and seeing it coming together to more or less where I want it to be is a great, satisfying feeling! (Highly recommend to anyone, even if it’s as small as starting an Instagram page!) Continue reading “Goals June 2017 | When TBR is not enough to cover all the “wants” in my head”

All the Good Things by Clare Fisher | An inspiring yet heartbreaking, character driven novel that will make you feel happy and sad at the same time

There is nothing better than a book that makes you fall in love with it from the very first pages. When the sentences flow so well together that you are instantly teleported to this new world. When the characters become so dear to your heart that you laugh, cry with them and for them until the very end of the book. When your heart is filled to the brim that after finishing the book you need some off time to nurse this feeling for a little longer. Continue reading “All the Good Things by Clare Fisher | An inspiring yet heartbreaking, character driven novel that will make you feel happy and sad at the same time”

My Most Anticipated Releases | April 2017

April will be full of contemporary releases, that I am not super obsessed with. But I love doing this post because (A) they help me staying on top of new releases and (B) you guys love it as well.

This month I am picking up the most popular books that I might or might not get my hands on. Continue reading “My Most Anticipated Releases | April 2017”

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”
