Books I am reading this Autumn!

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!”

A Veil of Shadows by Michael W. Garza | A great continuation to Naomi’s and Gavin’s adventures! + GIVEAWAY

Earlier this year I read and reviewed the first book in The Shadow Gate Chronicles  – «The Last Shadow Gate» by Michael W. Garza and it was a very whimsical experience. Make sure to check my review on the first book before reading this one!

Thank you YA Bound Book Tours for giving me the opportunity to continue reading this series and to provide my opinion on Naomi’s and Gavin’s adventures. Continue reading “A Veil of Shadows by Michael W. Garza | A great continuation to Naomi’s and Gavin’s adventures! + GIVEAWAY”

Heir of Illaria by Dyan Chick | Too fast-paced “Princess Diaries” with fantasy elements

Do you love Fantasy? Because I do, but recently I feel like giving up on YA fantasy novels because they don’t usually bring anything new to the table and just continue redecorating stories that we’ve heard before.

I would love to say that «Heir of Illaria» was different, but unfortunately that was not the case. It was one of those stories where you don’t miss any flaws but you keep enjoying it nonetheless.

Authors I discovered this year| And other honorable mentions!

This year has been amazing so far in terms of new genres, new releases and new-to-me authors. There were quite a lot of them that I would like to read more from, considering that their books made it to my 2017 favourites list that I will be sharing with all of you closer to the end of this year.

Surprisingly, almost all of them write General Fiction novels and it’s not a genre I pick up often, but when I do, it usually turns out to be a great experience. Maybe I should dedicate more of my reading time to Adult Fiction? Growing up is a very complicated process, especially when your reading tastes grows with you.

Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin | And Gabrielle Zevin’s ability to create interesting, versatile characters!

There mustn’t be a single person on this planet who doesn’t know or haven’t heard about Monica Lewinsky and the infamous White House scandal involving her and Bill Clinton, the former president of the United States of America.

Their relationship came to life almost two decades ago in 1998, but even though it’s been almost 20 years since we first heard the scandal, it hasn’t been forgotten. Bill Clinton’s speech is still very famous by the one and only phrase, denying to have any sexual relationship with Ms. Lewinsky. And the slut-shaming continues to the point where Monica Lewinsky became more of an adjective that has been applied to other women out there. Continue reading “Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin | And Gabrielle Zevin’s ability to create interesting, versatile characters!”

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!

That is correct! I read what turned out to be one of the best Sci-fi books I’ve ever had a chance to get my hands on! Even though I read this back in June of this year (Thank you NetGalley and Crown Books for the ARC!), I still cannot stop thinking about it. Continue reading “Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!”

Warcross by Marie Lu | Clichés, romance and advanced technology

This must have been the book I was the most excited about this year. It’s all about gaming, hackers and virtual reality! The synopsis sounded very interesting, especially for someone like me, who loves video games.

Unfortunately, this was one of those stories where the romance ruined the whole experience and made me sigh and cringe multiple times throughout. Continue reading “Warcross by Marie Lu | Clichés, romance and advanced technology”

September TBR | Hot Air Balloon, The Walking Dead & Reading Goals

What is blogging if not sharing your thoughts, interests and obsessions with others? That is exactly what I am going to do!

Firstly, I’ve been toying around with the idea of starting a Bullet Journal for quite a long time. I don’t want it as a planner though, rather to keep all my thoughts and ideas in one place. Maybe even to track some habits or blogging stats. Continue reading “September TBR | Hot Air Balloon, The Walking Dead & Reading Goals”
