Read, Rewrite or Burn Book Tag

Hello readers!

I was tagged by Laura @ The Book Corps to do this really fun tag, which I have seen around and it’s always so fun to read what people answer! It took me literally half a year to answer the tag, but here I am!

Blog Divider

The Rules

  • Randomly choose 3 books
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread
  • Repeat until you’ve completed six rounds (or however many rounds you want to do)

Round 1

Watch Me Jody Gehrman The Immortalists Chloe Benjamin pestilence laura thalassa

Burn: This is an easy one! PESTILENCE.

Rewrite: The Immortalists. I loved this book, actually, so I suppose I would change it just a little. I’d love to have more magic in it, not just that little sprinkling of magical realism.

Re-read: Watch Me! This was so creepy a read!! Continue reading

Bookstores Around the World: Edinburgh, Scotland

Hello book lovers!

This is a new series on my blog that I decided to start because it might help people who, like me, enjoy travelling and taking a few hours in your trip to escape into a bookstore. I love seeing how unique bookstores can be, there are so many beautiful, quirky ones that make book shopping such a fun experience! Really, I can enjoy myself at any bookstore, but it’s a lot more interesting in a place that is cute, or weird, or has amazing coffee (I love those).

So here I will talk about bookstores I visit when I travel! Of course I can’t visit ALL cool bookstores when I’m abroad, and as I said I have other priorities when travelling, but I do always make an effort to go to one or two, and I thought it’d be nice to share them here. As I am constantly looking for recommendations of bookstores to go to, I think it’s nice to have this series where people can go to and get a few inspirations for places to travel to AND with cool bookstores.

So first we start with Edinburgh, Scotland!

Blackwell’s

This is a regular chain bookstore, so no big quirks there, but I do love the look of this bookstore! It just looks so… British?

There is a small store with bookish things like games, toys, mugs etc, in which I was lost for a significant amount of time. Continue reading

OWNtober 2018 – my TBR, my thoughts and my painfully long list of books I should’ve read by now

bookshelf_2018_09.jpg

Hello readers!

Welcome to my most shameful post to date! Kathy from Books and Munches is hosting OWNtober, in which you attempt bravely to tackle your TBR, but with the books you actually own. Yes, that dusty pile of books that keeps getting higher and somehow you never get to see its bottom anymore and now you’re too stressed to actually know how many books the pile (or, let’s face it, pileS) actually has. I’m officially participating this year!

As official things must be, I announced it also on Twitter:

So, buckle up and let’s start with the first part of this challenge… LISTING ALL THE BOOKS YOU OWN AND HAVEN’T READ YET. Continue reading

5 Book Recommendation for each Hogwarts House #1

Hello!

So, I thought it would be very fun to recommend a few books for each Hogwarts house today! I myself belong to Ravenclaw, so it was a mental exercise not to put all my favorite books in that house. I had many ideas for each house, so I will do 5 recommendations today and 5 more another time, so this post is not super long!

Write in the comment section what is your house and which books you recommend for it!

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart

How Well Does Goodreads Know Me?

Hi readers!

So I saw this very fun meme at Fuzzy Bookworm, and I decided to do it too! The idea is to get 5 books that Goodreads recommends to me and then deciding if I will add them to my TBR or not! As a small twist to the meme, I will give Goodreads a grade from 1-5 of how good the recommendation was!

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1):

8709527

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Hummmm… I am not quite excited for another Richelle Mead book. I didn’t love Vampire Academy, and this seems to be in the same universe, so I will pass on it… (also, what is the connection to Crazy Rich Asians?)

Grade: 2 Continue reading

A Library Book

Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel! I really enjoyed that book and even more its follow-up, Bring Up the Bodies. It’s for sure the book that got me into historical fiction!

A Book You Got As a Gift

I recently got Kindred by Octavia Butler from my boyfriend! I’m so excited to read it! Continue reading

#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!
