#notall Book Tag

notall-book-tag

I got tagged by Katie at Never Not Reading for this really fun tag!! Read her post, it’s very entertaining! It’s the first tag I’m doing this year so I’m glad it’s a cool one that makes you think and break your stereotypes a little. 🙂

#notall Cover Changes – A cover change you liked

I read See What I Have Done last year as an eARC, which had this bird cover at the time. While eerie and simple, I very much liked the final cover with the pear a lot more! It’s still simple, but much more eerie and I also think it’s more relevant to the story!

ARC Review: The Immortalists, by Chloe Benjamin

The Immortalists Chloe Benjamin

Rating: ★★★★☆

Genres: Drama, Magic Realism

I have received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I picked up The Immortalists thinking it would be a magical realism story which focused on the magical side, especially since it’s classified as fantasy on Goodreads. But really, it’s focused a lot more on the realism side, with small hints of magic here and there, and a gorgeous family epic at its core. Continue reading

Happy New Year! + Books Published in 2018 I Look Forward To

Hello bookworms!

Welcome to 2018!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful time. Do you have traditions for this time of the year? Here in Brazil it’s Summer, so a lot of people spend the turn of the year at the beach, watching fireworks and partying. Also, we eat lentils for luck, as well as 12 grapes, one for each month of the upcoming year. I particularly spend it with my family, but younger people will sometimes spend it among friends… it’s quite common in Germany to do that!

So, to the books that come out this year (that I know of) and I look forward to! Continue reading
