This is going to be a very self-centered post, but Hey! Every once in a while, I think it’s allowed to stop talking books and focus on myself, especially with my 28th birthday coming up this Sunday, May 12th!
I would love to know how you usually celebrate your birthdays. Big loud parties or quiet family dinners?
I used to love my birthdays when I was younger. The excitement of inviting my school friends, creating different games, decorating my room with balloons! During more recent years, I tend to lean more towards family dinners and weekend get-aways. Something quieter and more relaxing than the craziness of hosting dinners.
After reading «Steelheart» by Brandon Sanderson, I decided to go ahead and order the rest of the books in the series and also the 2nd and 3rd books in Mistborn series, so I can finally binge read some Sanderson works!
Me ordering books online can sometimes be a little dangerous. I got slightly carried away and ended up getting some other books that have been on my TBR list for far too long!
How do you usually feel when it rains? Do you wish for sunshine? Do you enjoy the calming sound of the raindrops?
Personally, rainy days for me are perfect to catch up on some blogging and reading. Although, I do enjoy reading in the sun as well. But there is something cozy about the rain and dark sky, the possibility to lit up a few candles and cuddle up with a book under a blanket. I’m definitely a cozy reader!
Today I’m joining the Top Ten Tuesday theme – Rainy Day Reads, with a slight twist. Let’s get started!
Some month I struggle to find new books to add to this post. While other months, there are so many of them that it becomes difficult to narrow the list down. This was the case for April. This post could go on and on forever!
I can’t even imagine what May will be like. Most of my current ARCs will be published in May and I haven’t even checked other new releases yet. But one step at a time! Let’s see what April brings us!
For the last two years I’ve been following closely the Women’s Prize for Fiction, especially the announcements of Long- and Shortlists. But this will be my first time attempting to read some of the nominated titles.
A new set 16 books have been carefully picked for the longlist of Women’s Prize for Fiction. Don’t think that I will be able to read all of them until the winner is announced on June 5th, 2019, but there are a few that definitely sparked my interest.
There are some months that are filled with the new and most excited releases (it seems as though Publishers much prefer January / May and September over the other months!) and then there are months when I browse the New Releases page on GoodReads / BookDepository and other websites for many many hours, and still cannot find anything that excites me.
In March, there were only 7 books that looked somewhat promising.
