So, in the beginning of the post, I will also share a bit about how I’m doing so far, with my challenges this year! And I hope you guys enjoy it!Read More »

I am a Belle. I control Beauty.

In the opulent world of Orléans, the people are born grey and damned, and only a Belle’s powers can make them beautiful.

Camellia Beauregard wants to be the favourite Belle – the one chosen by the queen to tend to the royal family.

But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favourite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that her powers may be far greater – and far darker – than she ever imagined.

When the queen asks Camellia to break the rules she lives by to save the ailing princess, she faces an impossible decision: protect herself and the way of the Belles, or risk her own life, and change the world forever.

May Wrap-up and June TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys!!

How has your month been? May, for me, was actually pretty good!

First of all, because we finally have sun and warmth! I missed this weather! It always makes me so much happier! Anyone else?

But I also had my last exams at the beginning of the month, so after that, I dedicated myself a bit more to reading, which I couldn’t be happier about! Plus I also kind of bought quite many books this month, so we have a haul coming up next month (I will join it with my birthday haul)!

I’ve read 12 books, 2 of them being manga and 1 graphic novel. I also started 3 other books, which I was aiming to have finished but oh well! I just hope next month is as good for me, as this one was.

April Wrap-up and May TBR

Hey guys!!

I can’t believe we already ended April! It’s passing so fast! Did you guys have a good month? What have you been reading?

This month I had quite a bit to do. I had some tests, a lot to study and I ended up changing my month a bit. I’ve been reading quite a bit of fantasy and some heavy books, so I decided that for this month and especially the next, I will try to make it a bit lighter.

I’ve read only 10 books, 3 of them being very tiny… But I did start 2 others so… Hopefully, next month will be better since I end my test at the beginning of the month!

Unboxing: FairyLoot March 2018

04042018-IMG_7786

Hey guys! The theme for March’s FairyLoot Box is Memorable Moments in honor of FairyLoot’s 2nd anniversary! FairyLoot is an amazing YA bookish subscription box that I would highly recommend getting.

One of the things they told about this box is that it would be purple, instead of black, like they did on their first anniversary, as well as a scarf! It’s my first bookish scarf and I’m super excited to see it!! Also, every item in this box is inspired by some memorable moment in a book! Isn’t that super cool?!

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

February Wrap-up and March TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys! How was your February??

Mine for sure didn’t go as planned… It was still awesome but for sure not as planned.

First, I pre-ordered some books I really wanted to get and ended up not getting them due to them being sold out. So that was the not so great part. But at least I did get one I was really anticipating! Then, I ended up traveling to Berlin and so I wasn’t able to read as much as I wanted. Which to be honest I am MORE THAN HAPPY that that part didn’t go according to plan – which was to stay home and read.

Berlin was amazing! Definitely one of my favorite cities so far! A bit similar to Paris in my opinion, which I also love… I loved the feeling, I loved everything I visited and although I didn’t buy much I bought some pretty cool things, so expect a haul pretty soon!!

I will stop rambling now and get to the point of this post. This month I read 12 books. I am really happy with this month because I got to participate in the Contemporary-a-thon, which was amazing, you can check out my post here and I actually discovered a LOT of favorites this month.

What did you read this month? Any favorites?

January Wrap-up and February TBR

I can’t believe January already passed… We just started the year! But it did… And it’s time for another Wrap-up and TBR!

Comparing to November and December this month was much better in terms of reading. I got to some books I was dying to read, I read a bit more – 11 books -, I got some holiday time and I had a bit less school stuff to do. So altogether it was an awesome month!

How was your month? What books did you read?
