Last year there was a similar theme: Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes, so I already shared with you my obsession over yellow books. This week’s TTT [Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Jaine @ThatArtsyReaderGirl] is supposed to be about book covers with fall colors / vibes, but to do something a little bit different from what I did before.
Autumn will always associate with “cozy” for me, but considering that we are in October and Halloween is slowly approaching. Besides, this whole month I promised to share with you tons of Spooky / Witchy / Halloweeny reads. It’s only right that my take on this TTT theme is also centered around Halloween and the spookiest month of the year.
It’s been too long since my last Top Ten Tuesdaypost! Hi, everyone, and hope you’re loving this week’s TTT theme. As I was preparing my post, I found a lot of books with single word titles. And apparently, Sci-Fi books are all about the single-word titles! I was even planning to make a list of Sci-Fi books with a one-word title that I really want to read, but some of them I don’t own and I wanted this list to be more realistic.
I’m starting this Holiday series with Top Ten Tuesday meme and some book recommendations for the most wonderful time of the year. This post contains a bunch of my all time favorite books. I tried to include different categories for different readers so that no-one would feel left out during the magical Christmas time!
A debut novel by Juliet McDaniel is an absurd presentation of a socialite’s life, Maxine Simmons, in the late 60s – early 70s California – Palm Springs. Satirical, witty and VERY addicting – «Mr. & Mrs. American Pie» is a perfect summer read. Don’t need to look any longer if you are hunting for some books to take with you on summer vacations.
I might have made a mistake to binge read Gillian Flynn books at the beginning of my blogging career. Ever since that point, no thrillers ever came close to twisted and dark characters of Gillian Flynn.
I was 100% sure that I had already written a review for the first book in the series – «The 5th Wave». I even spent good 20 minutes searching through my blog/drafts/posts and just any document that might contain a hidden almost 2-year-old review. I found nothing!
As I just finished the second book in the series, my hands are itching to write some feedback because it was AMAZING and I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY DYSTOPIAN HEART!
When I was little, I constantly asked my parents to buy me more books. I think it was the only thing I ever asked for. My favorite book series back then was something similar to Nancy Drew – crime, mystery solving stories within a large collection of adventures.
When I picked this book up from NetGalley, I didn’t even realize that it was going to have that same adventurous vibe that I used to love in children books.
In this epic continuation to «Nyxia», following the events of the first book, Emmett Atwater and his crew have landed on the planet of Eden. But not under the circumstances they were hoping for. Their instructions were simple – play nice and extract Nyxia in great quantities, something they were trained to do on Genesis 11 spaceship.
Months are flying so quickly! Just “yesterday” I posted my most anticipated releases for the month of June and now it’s already the 1st of July. Somehow time has been escaping me this year. Any tips on how to make it go slower? *idea for a new blog post *wink*
It is currently 10th of June, but it feels like 160th days of January (I did the math, today is, officially, the 160th day of the year and end of Week 23) because the weather has been abnormally horrible, the summer doesn’t seem to rush to Portugal this year. I feel sorry for the numerous tourists who decided that May / June were the perfect months to come out on holidays. (which they usually are!).
No matter how inviting magical worlds might be, one should never go unprepared and under-informed into the unknown. Especially when the unknown is a large world filled to the brim with mischief, treachery and magical secrets.
