‘No sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes …’

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

TTT: Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach

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 to Read By the Pool/At the Beach (This can also serve as your summer TBR)

Normally the type of books I read by the pool/at the beach tend to be easy reads. Generally, they are either tiny books, contemporary books, graphic novels/manga or in the rare occasion, poetry. But to be honest, nowadays I go more towards audiobooks when I read at the beach.

I will talk about some books I think are good to read outside during the summer (pool/beach). Some I’ve read, some I’ll be reading this summer.

Do you read by the pool/at the beach? What type of books?

TTT: Books That Take Place In Another Country

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 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?
