Book Blogger Hop·Histo-what

About the Book Blogger Hop by Coffee Adicted Writer

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:.

Do you read historical fiction?

Sometimes. It has to be a really interesting book and/or come highly recommended for me to try it but I do pick them up from time to time


This week I hopped to:

As you saw the other day, I did a Hadestown book tag and that one came from a blog called Readers, Rambles & Reviews, they have a fantastic blog with really diverse content, not only books, so I recommend giving it a look!

Another blog I hopped to is a usual of mine that came up with an unusual post: Book song parodies. Perfectly Tolerable is an amazing blog and Brittany has made a compilation of all kinds of musical parodies found on youtube for you enjoyment

Finally, The Bibliophagist just posted their Anything But Books tag and it’s great so everyone should go see it

Hadestown BookTag

Lately I’ve been obsessed with the official cast recording for the musical Hadestown (available on Spotify if you haven’t heard it yet). It’s so amazing and relevant and one of my favorite greek myths reinvented, so I decided to do a tag about it! I found this one by Readers, Rambles & Reviews and I loved the questions so here you have it!

Witchmark by CL Polk

Title: Witchmark

Series: The Kingston Cycle #1

Author: C.L. Polk

Publisher: Tor.com

Format: E-Book

Length: 318 pages

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

36187110. sy475 C. L. Polk arrives on the scene with Witchmark, a stunning, addictive fantasy that combines intrigue, magic, betrayal, and romance.

In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a World War, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own.

Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be enslaved to his family’s interest or to be committed to a witches’ asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn’t leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family, but even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veterans’ hospital, Miles can’t hide what he truly is.

When a fatally poisoned patient exposes Miles’ healing gift and his witchmark, he must put his anonymity and freedom at risk to investigate his patient’s murder. To find the truth he’ll need to rely on the family he despises, and on the kindness of the most gorgeous man he’s ever seen.

August’s (Re)Reading Plans

((Fun fact: the prefix “re” in Argentina means “very” so technically rereading a book means reading it very hard))

Do you all know how many sequels are coming on the second half of 2019?? A lot

I’ve decided to dedicate this month to (mostly) re reading books I enjoyed and whose stories I’m getting back into soon so I have all the characters fresh in my mind. Also because the other day I got an irrational urge to reread the entire Green Creek Series and I needed a good excuse to do it.

BBH·I love it, I want seven

This week’s question:.

Do you own more than one copy of a book?

Resultado de imagen para i want it all gif

Yes, usually it’s because I want different formats for different moments. One time I forgot my physical copy of A Darker Shade of Magic at home and decided to just buy it on my kindle (I had a really long day ahead of me, okay?). I also own two hardcovers of Alice in Wonderland because I love that book and the illustrations were just too pretty to ignore-


This week I hopped to:

If you are looking to buy one book, or seven, then let me direct you to the best recs list I’ve seen this month! Taasia @libraepaintspages has over 50 YA books to read this summer/winter and they all look amazing

You know what’s hard? Getting physical books in the original language, because I live in the literal end of the world and we either don’t get the books or they are so expensive I end up buying everything on Amazon. This is just one of the struggles international readers face but Marie @DrizzleAndHurricaneBooks has put together a fantastic post about how we can all support international book bloggers and show our appretiation!

Friday Reads

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover, it mixes two already existing memes:

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

My Current read

36187110. sy475

I’m picking this back up and not putting it down until I’m done! It took me a couple of chapters to get into it (because I kept getting distracted with other new releases) but this time I’ll finish it!

Book Beginnings

The memo stank of barrel-printing ik and bad news.

The Friday 56

Some things you can’t shed like an old coat, Doctor.

WoW·Infinity Son

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too


Let’s be clear, I’ll be yelling about this book for the forseeable future but I decided to feature it today becasue of the cover reveal!

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle #1)

by Adam Silvera 

34510711. sy475

Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.

Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.

Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.

Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.

Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.

Expected publication: January 14th 2020


We are getting a fantasy from one of my all-time favorite authors!!! I’ve had this pre ordered since the day it was available and I’ll probably read it in a day or less and then re-read it immediately after.
