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?

Owlcrate July 2018 Unboxing

25072018-IMG_8169.jpg

Hey guys! It’s time for another Owlcrate unboxing!!

July’s box theme is Strange & Unusual and it’s better than I expected!

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’ve been loving every single box, and I loved the theme of this one but it was even better than I expected! It’s so well themed and balanced!

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!

TTT: Series I’d Like to Finish Someday

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:

Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish OR Series I’d Like to Finish Someday (Submitted by A Book and a Cup).

I don’t have many series I’ve started that I wouldn’t like to continue, and the ones I do, I’ve talked about already in other posts. Since the topic mentions that we can also choose to talk about series we would like to finish, I decided to go for that.

I’ll be talking about some series I recently started and want to continue ASAP, others that I’m not sure when I will be getting to but want to, and finally some series I have yet to start but feel that I really want to try out!

Do you have any series you’ve given up on? Also, what series would you like to continue but haven’t done so yet?

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.

TTT: Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

This week’s topic is:

Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

This is such a cool topic! For me, one of the best things about reading is meeting new worlds. That’s why I love fantasy! I can already think of many I would love to live in! Even tho, half of the time fantasy worlds are definitely not the easiest to live in…

I will be mentioning 8 worlds I would love to live in and explaining my top 4! And 8 worlds I just couldn’t possibly endure, and explaining my top 4 as well.

*If I have a review for any of the books mentioned it will be linked to the cover*

Which Bookish Worlds would you love to live in? Which ones you wouldn’t?
