No matter how many books I devour every year, it is incredible to see that there are still books out there that are able to amaze me with beautiful, emotional writing, magical settings, and touching events.
This was my first book by Robert Dinsdale and it definitely won’t be the last one! I am still battling with my inner self whether I should add this book to my 2018 favorites list or not. If I would have a “2018 most memorable reads” shelf, it would automatically earn its place there.

Don’t you love it when the first day of the month falls on the weekend? Because I do! Perfect timing to wrap up the previous month and set up reading and non-reading goals for the next month, and just taking some time off to recharge!

On a peaceful Saturday morning, after opening my eyes around 7 am and wishing to just fall asleep again (we all know that once you are awake, you are awake for good!), my first thought was: “Let me catch up on some booktube action from this week!”
And so I cuddled up with my tablet under a warm cosy duvet and started watching my favourite bookstagrammers. When video by MercysBookishMusings caught my attention! She was talking about something exciting that took place on the very same day! COSY READING NIGHT on February 11th! You can already imagine my excitement.

Days are getting longer and brighter, there are so much more you can squeeze into 24 hours. That must be one of the main reasons why I love Spring so much. Spring usually came with greenness and flowers, rustling of new leaves and tweets, but since I moved to Portugal there is no distinctive season transition as I was used to before and I grew to love the daylight savings (the only change, besides temperature, that announces a new season).
