TTT: Books with Red, White, & Blue Covers

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books with Red, White, & Blue Covers (In honor of the 4th of July in the USA. Choose covers with your own country’s colors if you prefer!)

Since it was given the option of also putting my countries colors I will do it all… I will choose some Red, White, & Blue Covers to celebrate the 4th of July and will do a tinier section with the colors of the Portuguese flag (my home country) followed by the Finnish flag (the country I live in).

Do you celebrate the 4th of July? If so, what do you usually do? Also which books do you own the most – blue, white or red?

* Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much! This doesn’t affect the review in any way. My opinions are, as always, my own.*

A gripping novel about the depth of a sister’s love; poised to be the next book you won’t be able to stop talking about.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she’s left behind.

Sadie hasn’t had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she’s been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.

June Wrap-up and July TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys!!

How has your month been? June was the best month so far for me! I’m so happy!!

I read pretty much all the books I wanted to read with little change and found amazing books!

I’ve read 13 books and I am totally caught up with The Count of Monte Cristo‘s marathon that ends next month, and the Shadowhunter’s marathon that I’m enjoying it a bit more now. I ended up re-reading one book to continue with the series and re-read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban but this time I went for the illustrated edition, which made it not feel like a re-read at all!

Check out what I’ve read this month:

But in exchange for their help in saving her brother, they demand that Laia spy on the ruthless Commandant of Blackcliff, the Empire’s greatest military academy. Should she fail it’s more than her brother’s freedom at risk . . . Laia’s very life is at stake.

There, she meets Elias, the academy’s finest soldier. But Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined – and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

Owlcrate June 2018 Unboxing

26062018-IMG_8029

Hey guys! It’s time for another Owlcrate unboxing!! I’m so excited >.<

June’s box theme is Summer Lovin’ and it couldn’t have been more summery!

Owlcrate is an amazing YA bookish subscription box that I would highly recommend getting. Plus, if you live in Europe like me, it still arrives incredibly fast and somehow  (for me) it doesn’t get more expensive than any other box coming from Europe – although obviously, it changes from country to country…

I was sure of the book coming in this box and that’s what made me go for it, but I never imagined this box was going to be this cute! It’s so incredibly summery and beautiful! Full of color and useful items!

If you wanna check out what this box included, just keep reading! I will show photos of all the items, information on them and some of my thoughts!
