June 2019 Goals | ARCs, beach, and many blogging plans!

I have many plans for June. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t pass as fast as all other months did! Is it me getting old or time just started to go faster than usual???

May was a great month for me in terms of everything, except books, as you probably saw from my Wrap Up post earlier this week.

10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years to Add to My TBR!

It’s another Tuesday, which means Top Ten Tuesday time! As always I love joining in on the fun and creating content for specific themes. But (you probably already noticed) I always tend to rebel a little bit and give the theme a spin of my own!

This week’s TTT is Top 10 Favorite Books Released in the Last Ten Years, and the idea is to come up with one book per each year. I tend to always talk about my favorite books, so I didn’t feel like repeating something I’ve done before, therefore today I’m talking about my TBR. More specifically – 10 Books Released in the Last Ten Years that are still on my To-Be-Read List!

I went to my vast GoodReads TBR shelf and selected one book for each year that I’m the most excited to read.

May 2019 Goals | Dandelions, sunny days and reading!

The fifth month of the year and my 5th set of goals! (Let’s pretend that I didn’t skip this post in February.) I don’t do well with monthly TBR, mostly because I never follow them, and feel forced to read certain books. But GOALS! They are so motivating!

I also love readings other’s monthly goals and see if I can steal some of them for myself 😀

10 Different Rainy Day Moods and Books Recommendations!

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!

April 2019 Goals | ARCs, Reviews and Read-a-Thons!

Whenever I write these posts, I try to answer several questions: What do I want to achieve next month? What do I need to work on? What steps will bring me closer to my goal?

Usually, the answers would be to STAY PRODUCTIVE! MOVE FORWARD! and everything with a similar vibe. But April will be slightly different. Of course, there are still books to read and blog posts to write; but my intention is to take is easy.

Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019 | What books will I add to my TBR?

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.

An Overly Ambitious TBR | January 2019

I shall start this year strong! Hence, I picked a total of 9 (yes, you heard me right – NINE) books to read in January. It’s been a while since I was able to read more than 6 books per month, and my internship started this week. But I believe in myself! And big books don’t scare me at all. (well.. maybe a little bit).

Sadly, many new books released in January won’t arrive in time for me to read them all in January. They will just have to queue for the next month’s TBR.

Most Anticipated Releases | July 2018

most anticipated July 2018

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*

July will be a great month because my most anticipated book of the year – Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen will be coming out on July 17th and I was incredibly lucky to receive advanced readers’ copy of this book! Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | July 2018”

Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile

CURRENT READS WEEK 24

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!).

Gray sky, cold wind and rainy evenings aside, let’s actually talk about some books, shall we? Continue reading “Current Reads · Week 24 | Tackling my TBR pile”

Most Anticipated Releases | June 2018

most anticipated June

These posts are dangerous. Dangerous to my shelves and most importantly my wallet. Just when I thought I would give my wallet and bank account some rest from all the bookish purchases (my birthday was last month and I went a little bit overboard with book orders, oops…)  here we are with more exciting new releases.

December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!

There is only one month left before the end of this year and there are still a huge amount of books I would like to read before the 31st of December. I think it will always be like this , no matter how many books I manage to read each year.

My aim for this December is to prioritize ARCs and all pending reviews! So this is exactly what I will be reading (maybe some Christmasy novels as well). Continue reading “December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!”

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”

August TBR | ARC August & Tackle The Brothers Karamazov

Maybe I should be reading all those SERIES I STARTED AND NEVER FINISHED instead? Maybe… But reading ARCs seems so much more appealing!

I definitely have a problem with the fantasy series but they will have to wait. Because it’s ARC August time! I will be participating in the 5th Annual ARC August, hosted by lovely book bloggers from Read.Sleep.Repeat

July TBR 2017 | The month of massive fantasy series! + Reading Poll!

Just like the previous month, I will not be making a TBR list because (A) I am not sure what exactly I want to read and (B) it seemed to work better for me when I didn’t have to follow the list, but instead set up some small goals that I will strive to achieve during the month. Continue reading “July TBR 2017 | The month of massive fantasy series! + Reading Poll!”

My most anticipated releases | July 2017

It seems that even Publishers are taking some time off in July, because compared to the previous months, this one will be the quietest of them all!

Or maybe I am just waiting for more Fantasy / Dystopian / Sci Fi books while summer is all about contemporary? I am not sure! What I am sure about, is that there are only 3 books that I would like to get your attention to. Continue reading “My most anticipated releases | July 2017”
