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:

Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

I will be mentioning 15 books I remember being late to the party and that definitely got a lot of hype at some point.

I won’t be talking about each of them in particular but this is a list of books that I definitely recommend if you haven’t checked them out yet! Also, if you are interested in checking them out farther, I linked any review I have to the covers.

What are some popular books you think lived up to the hype?

Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

 

This is an awesome topic! I missed last weeks topic because DNF books are just not my thing, and I wouldn’t have much to talk about. Plus, I had another post I wanted to put on my blog that day so… Yeah, that happened. But this topic, and in general, topics like this, I’m a fan of and I definitely want to share my book experiences with you guys!

There’s many I would love to talk about and for sure many I must be forgetting, but I will focus on 10 books. I have a mix of historical fiction books, contemporary books, fantasy and even classics. They are mostly set in different countries and I would love to see if you guys have read any of these books or are interested in any of the countries I mentioned!

Which books awaken the travel bug in you? To which countries?

This week’s topic is:

Best Character Names (make this as narrow/broad as you’d like)

Well… Dang it. This is difficult as hell! I often forget characters’ names, especially if it’s not the main characters. This will require some proper research haha. But let’s do it! I will be taking names from 10 books for male names and 20 books for female names.

What are some of your favorite character’s names?

This week’s topic is:

Books With My Favorite Color On the Cover/Title

This was not the easiest topic for me… I don’t think I have only one favorite color? I do love black and dark blue and so on… But I also love those sky type of colors… Like blue with pops of pink or orange. So that’s what I’m going for here!

Black  – Night sky blue – Blues and aqua-blues – Blue changing to sunset – sunset colors

Do you have a favorite color? What is it?

TTT: Books That Take Place In Another Country

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 That Take Place In Another Country

So for me, this topic is probably the easiest thing ever since I’m not from the US and half of the books I read about are set there. Because of that, I will feature books from 10 different countries. Some countries have more than others, but each country will have a min of 1 book and max of 5.

The books I will feature are books that I either already read or are on my TBR. If I’ve read them you can check my review by clicking on the cover.

Have you read any books set in other countries? What was your favorite?

Pages: 471
Format: Paperback & Audiobook

She has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself.

After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada Dracul is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her blood-strewn path. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her.

What Lada needs is her younger brother Radu’s subtlety and skill. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople—and it’s no diplomatic mission. Mehmed wants control of the city, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. Radu longs for his sister’s fierce confidence—but for the first time in his life, he rejects her unexpected plea for help. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself—but if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him?

As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfill their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won…and souls will be lost.
