Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?

It finally happened! After having it on my TBR for almost 7 months, in April I have read «Carry On». I love Rainbow Rowell and always will, but I was a little apprehensive to read her fantasy novel, and it’s for a good reason.

If you didn’t know, «Carry On» was a popular fantasy series first mentioned in «Fangirl» where Cate, the main character, was writing fanfiction for. Continue reading “Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?”

Why do I love reading ARCs?

Not so long ago, more precisely during the month of my blog anniversary, I rambled about my love for blogging. You can check the post here «Why do I love being a book blogger?» (Shameless Self Promotion 101).

And today I’ve decided to continue this rambling series and talk a little bit about my love for something else. Continue reading “Why do I love reading ARCs?”

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss

This is probably one of the most beautiful contemporary books I’ve ever read. And if this is not enough to make you instantly pick up this book, I intend to praise it for another page or two – no matter how long it takes for me to convince you that THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER AND YOU NEED TO READ IT! (Did it work???) Continue reading “Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss”

Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh | The new series (trilogy?) I already added to my TBR list!

The first time I heard about «Flame in the Mist» by Renée Ahdieh, and I have to be honest here, it did not catch my attention at all. The only thing that interested me was the fact that Renée Ahdieh was already an author to another successful fantasy series (that I unfortunately haven’t read yet! When do I find time to read all of the series I want to read?? When??? )

After a careful thought on the subject and pushing away the terrifying idea of not being able to connect to the Japanese culture, I decided to give it a try. Thank you NetGalley and PENGUIN GROUP Penguin Young Readers Group for the free ARC of this wonderful novel! As always, it in no way affected my opinion on this book. Continue reading “Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh | The new series (trilogy?) I already added to my TBR list!”

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Was it too similar to «Throne of Glass»?

I am glad to announce that I finally read the first book of the new (relatively new) Sarah J. Maas series! This was my top priority of April considering that the third book in the series, «A Court of Wings and Ruin», is coming out early in May. I had to see for myself what everyone was raving about and so I did! Continue reading “A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Was it too similar to «Throne of Glass»?”
