TTT·Last additions to my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Let’s do it!

As you may or may not know. this year I want to finally read all the books I already own (apart from those that I have preordered) and for this reason I decided to join a challenge!

Beat the Backlist 2019

Any genre, any format, any length. 

Any book published in 2018 or earlier is fair game.

Re-reads count. And you don’t have to own the book!

It’s exactly what I wanted to do! and (for me) it’s always easier to do things when you have a community to share with. They have a bingo card to check special kinds of books::

I’ve already read a few books this year and one of them happens to have been a christmas present so I’m ticking it off!

They also have a mini-challenge where you can join a Hogwarts house and win points to compete against other houses! I love a good rivalry

Friday Reads·The Gilded Wolves

Friday read was invented by The Candid cover, It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

  • 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.

Book Beginnings

This book actually has three first sentences and since I didn’t know which one to choose you get all three:

From the prologue

The Matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner.

From “the archival records”

The art of Forging is as old as civilization itself.

From the first proper chapter

Séverin glanced at the clock: two minutes left.

The Friday 56

The day he said that was the day he realized some memories have a taste. That day, his mouth was full of blood, and so his promise tasted like salt and iron.

Out of my Comfort Zone Tag

Today’s tag is about challenging ourselves and doing things we usually wouldn’t, ie getting out of the comfort zone. I was tagged by the wonderful Bibi @Bibi’sBookBlog so here we are!

The Rules:

You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about and then you can’t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!

Daaaamn, okay then I can’t talk about fantasy… this is gonna be so hard though. I’m not a person who likes to challenge herself while reading for fun but I guess I’ll give it a try

Firestarter by Tara Sim

All things are subject to love.

Title: Firestarter

Series: Timekeeper #3

Author: Tara Sim

Publisher: Sky Pony Press

Format: e-book

Length: 488 pages

Rating: 5/5 ★★★★★

Summary:

25761057The crew of the Prometheus is intent on taking down the world’s clock towers so that time can run freely. Now captives, Colton, Daphne, and the others have a stark choice: join the Prometheus’s cause, or fight back in any small way they can and face the consequences. But Zavier, leader of the terrorists, has a bigger plan—to bring back the lost god of time.

As new threats emerge, loyalties must shift. No matter where the Prometheus goes—Prague, Austria, India—nowhere is safe, and every second ticks closer toward the eleventh hour. Walking the line between villainy and heroism, each will have to choose what’s most important: saving those you love at the expense of the many, or making impossible sacrifices for the sake of a better world.


THE WHOLE BOOK RIPPED MY HEART OUT AND THEN KICKED IT, SO MUCH ANGST AND TENSION ALL THE TIME ISN’T GOOD FOR MY NERVES

Meaning: the author manages to maintain the feelings of high-stakes all along the narrative while still allowing the characters moments of calm and intimacy so that they can deal with their feelings. I read the entire thing in just two days because it was impossible for me to put it dow, it was so good. This was a perfect finale for the trilogy, with all the characters getting their closure and an epic ending that leaves you breathless.

ABC Book Challenge ·Z·

I saw this challenge back at The Bookish Chick and decided to give it a try (here’s to hoping I don’t forget in a couple of days)

The challenge goes like this:

  • I’ll do it once a week
  • Each post is dedicated to a letter and so I have to name memorable books I’ve read containing the letter
  • I’ll take a page of thebookishchick and also add books from my TBR

WEEK 27

Most awaited books that come out THIS WEEK

Just by the title you already know what to expect but still: here are a couple of books that I’ve been waiting for since they were announced, and we’re getting them both on the same day! TUESDAY 15

I’m putting this out today so that you can get ready for the moment they are available it is definitely NOT because I plan on shutting myself away from the world until I’m done reading… not at all

The first one is the final instalment of the Timekeeper trilogy by Tara Sim. I pre ordered it on my kindle so that I can read it as soon as it releases. As soon as I was done with Chainbreaker I needed to read this one so I placed the order on JUNE 2018

25761057

The second one I needed because I fell in love with the author, Roshani Chokshi, after reading The Star-Touched Queen, but also because of the summary and beautiful cover (Chokshi’scovers are always breath-taking)

Because of all of this I decided to preorder this particular book on hardcover so that I can enjoy it and then get all my friends to read it as well not to mention that it’ll look amazing displayed on my shelf. Also, it’s listed as historical fiction, since it takes place in France 1889 so it totally counts towards my goal of diversifying genres
