To DNF Or Not To DNF

For as long as I can remember, I haven’t been able to DNF (Do Not Finish) a book to save my life. It doesn’t matter than I’m struggling, even hating the book, I will not put it down until I reach the ending. Why you ask? I know it’s ridiculous to keep reading a book that…

Words I Learned Through Reading, Part 3

I’m not a native English speaker and even though I have quite the extensive English vocabulary, I still encounter new words through reading in every book. I freaking adore it when an author uses some very big words and in Words I Learned Through Reading, Part 1, I already shared my first batch of words….

That’s Not What Happened, but what did happen then?

If you’ve never read one of Hot Key Books’ darker novels, you’re seriously missing out. I try to keep an eye out for every dark book they publish, and S.T.A.G.S IMMEDIATELY caught my attention. Teenagers hunting other teenagers? I’m there! (*grabs popcorn*)

September 2018 Reading Wrap-up

In case you don’t remember, back in August I somehow managed to read 17 books. Don’t ask me how I didn’t it, but to prove that it’s not something that happens often, I also managed to read exactly one book by September 14th. Go figure. Warcross by Marie Lu This is the October pick of…

Series I Need To Finish, Part 4

How am I already on my fourth list of series I need to finish? After reading all the books on list number one and list number two, I have now finished list number three. I started these lists when I noticed that I have A LOT of unfinished series on my shelf, and it’s a…

Birthday readathon

The idea of an ultimate readathon-con is an idea I’ve been playing around with for a while now, but I can’t just organize a con with hotel rooms, activities and dinner. One of my bookclub buddies ran with my idea for her birthday party, and I’m now doing it too for mine. Two weekends ago, from…

Anticipated 2018 Fall Book Releases

Every August when the days are clearly becoming shorter and the evenings colder, I’m dreading what comes next. I have an absolute HATE for winter with all its coldness and snowiness and I’m never prepared for it to come. What I forget every year though, is that between summer and winter lies a whole other…

Made You Up, or didn’t she?

I’m a definite sucker for a good book hype. The hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi was one of the biggest I have seen, so naturally I couldn’t not read it. It didn’t matter that this was a genre that I usually won’t even touch with a ten-foot pole, I needed to read this book and see for myself if it’s just as good as they say.

August 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Look, okay, I don’t know what happened in this month either. Remember two months ago when I was only able to read 5 books in one month? This month I read (*mumbles something unintelligibly*) … … … (*whispers*) I read 17 books. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen My reread of the first book got me so…

The August 2018 Oh So Criminal Illumicrate Unboxing

I’ve had multiple book subscriptions in the past, Owlcrate, The YA Chronicles, Illumicrate, I’ve had and loved them all. Unfortunately I stopped all my subscriptions in 2016 after buying a house as I couldn’t justify the cost any more. And it was so, so sad to not have these boxes waiting for me on a…
