Sometimes it feels like authors have gone too far. I believe that YA is separated from Adult for a reason, not just because the characters fall into a certain age category but also because there are certain issues, subjects and problems that can be brought up in Adult literature and need to be carefully presented, if at all, in YA.
I’ve been loving this monthly “meme” of mine – looking for new releases, see what everyone else is excited about and just staying on top of the bookish market. So of course October was not going to be an exception and here I am once more to list all of the new books I am the most excited about!
We had a massive influx of new and exciting books in September, and October is kind of falling behind, not being able to weigh up to September’s hype.

It is undeniable that «Homegoing» must be included in school literature program! Yaa Gyasi created the most emotional novel. It all started with two half sisters, Effia and Esi, in XVIII century Ghana and then followed generation after generation until our days, and saw the true power of family, of the past, of history.
I would not be lying if I said that I’ve never read anything more beautiful, heart-wracking and touching.

One of my passions (other than reading and blogging of course) is gaming. I admit that I do not play as much as I used to and in the last few years I barely can call myself a gamer at all! But the passion is still there and «The Comic Book Story of Video Games» sounded very appealing to me!

The second half of 2017 has been very slow in terms of reading. I powered through many books in the beginning of the year and then it all started to go down hill. I have been reading but I don’t feel like I’ve been reading enough, if that makes sense.
First of all, let’s take a look at my September goals that I set up for myself in the beginning of the month: Continue reading “September Wrap Up | Not the greatest reading month!”
Here I am with yet another Autumnal post, because it’s still 30 degrees Celsius in Portugal and I am desperate for some Autumn weather. I stockpiled tons of candles, blankets and cozy socks, but the weather does not allow me to enjoy them to their fullest potential.
And lately, being in a reading slump, I feel like gloomier days will put me in a better reading mood. I’ve been trying everything to get myself excited about reading again and a much awaited rain session might do just that! Continue reading “The Fall Time, Cozy Time | Book Tag & Another Autumn Inspired Post”
