It’s been a while since the last Sunday Snuggle, but we’re back! I love writing these posts – however, I’ve been trying to keep my blog more or less up-to-date with my readings, and doing 1 review posts per week was not enough, so I’ve decided to stop the Sunday Snuggle posts for a while until those were more or less up-to-date.
I’ve also changed my posting days to: Monday-Wednesday-Sunday. I know two days in a row and then 4 days of no posts isn’t IDEAL and the Book Blogger Scheduling gods are mad at me, but I think this scheduling will help me answer comments faster, because on the weekends I hardly touch my laptop.
I’ve moved in together with my fiancé in the meantime since my last Sunday Snuggle, and discovered, to no one’s surprise, that we have way too much stuff. I’m getting rid of many books, including stuff I didn’t even read, so would you guys be interested in a giveaway of a bunch of books either unread or read one time (so, lightly used)? I know giveaways are normally brand-new books, and some people dislike getting books other people already owned, but I have so many books and I already frequently (and rather abundantly) donate them, so I thought it’d be nice this time to do a giveaway instead.
This week, I bought digital copies of:
(can you sense a theme?)
From Netgalley, I received:
My Readings This Week
My sister and I are buddy-reading Vicious! If you don’t know my sister, she’s a sensation on my blog now and will come back for more reviews & other posts. I loved Vicious, this is so good and dark and addictive.
I love this edition of 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (in Portuguese). I am such a big fan of Jules Verne’s works, and I remember enjoying this as an audiobook many years ago, so it’s really nice to pick up the physical copy! This is an “unedited” edition, meaning they kept the whole text, and I am surprised it’s 500 pages long – I think other books by him that I read were perhaps shortened. It’s a lot more verbose than I remember for sure! But still a pleasure to read. Should I do a review on it?
I listened to The Yellow Wallpaper on Spotify for free! Which is awesome. I gave this short story 5 stars, it was absolutely creepy and delicious. If you love gothic and feminist stories, you’ll surely like this one. I listened to the ending 3 times because it was so good. (also, can you tell I’ve been on a classics mood?)
