Audiobooks on Spotify

YES! There’s actually audiobooks you can listen to if you have a Spotify account.

Thanks to the SpotifyWarpped I found out that people don’t know about these, so today I’m sharing the books you can listen to fully on Spotify

This is obviously NOT sponsored I wish but rather an honest attempt to get audiobooks to more people. They are such a nice way of reading, especially if you can’t stare at a page for whatever reason.

Spotify is also a cheaper alternative to buying each individual book

2019 Best Covers

We are already in December! (I feel like I do this every single month… the passage of time baffles me tbh)

There’s less than a month left of 2019 so I decided to start a series with the best of the 2019 releases

We are starting with COVERS because I’m an aesthetic bitch and I love a good cover…

Do I have any kind of system or ranking? No. I’m like a crow who hoards shiny things, they are all important

What Are You Reading Wednesday

I saw this meme back at The Introverted Booknerd:

What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by RhiannaMarissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving.


MY CURRENT READ

48449340. sy475

1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?

Content! I read the Raven Cycle books a few years ago and really enjoyed it, Ronan was even my favorite character so the posibility of an entire trilogy just about him was too good to pass up.

2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?

I knind of answered that above… But ignoring the main character?

I really love Declan, he truies so hard to be a serious and productive member of society, while keeping his family safe. And he fails so hard at all of that…

3. Will you finish this one?

Definitely.

I’m dealing with finals at the moment, which is the only reason I didn’t finish this in two days. By the end of the week I’ll be done with it

4. This book reminds me of…

9361589In the sense that it’s whimsical and has different points of view that mix and separate along the story.

5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

This is the kind of read that sucks you in and you don’t realise time is passing by as you read. You know the ones where you raise your head and suddenly it’s 3 am and you haven’t gone to bed yet.

NaNoWriMo101-Success Stories

By now we are all either too tired to compute OR too caffeinated to feel our fingers as they type but

Don’t give up!

That novel that may look terrible to you, or that looks like it will just never be done, is still your baby. And today I’m sharing with you NaNo Novels that became part of my favorites after (probably) making their author’s life hell all month long

FR·Call Down the Hawk

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover

It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

Friday Reads

  • 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

48449340. sy475

This book is so delightfully weird! It has dreams and dreamers, an undreground blackmarket full of strange things and people, three brothers, and six girls who are actually just one split up.

I’m enjoying this even more than the original The Raven Cycle books (probably because Ronan’s always been my fave)

Book Beginnings

This is going to be a story about the Lynch borthers.

My favorite kind of story (and of brothers)

The Friday 56

“I don’t believe you,” he said out loud. “I have trust issues.”

Why is this so funny? Ronan doesn’t have an issue talking about his issues and I love him

Navigating books awards season

We are quickly approaching the end of the year and you know what that means:

it’s time to choose the best of 2019, or at least start thinking about it

I probably won’t start drafting that particular post in a few weeks yet, but when you have a big platform and want to get your audience involved with the process you need to get the votes in early.

TTT·Progress is impossible without change

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.

Changes In My Reading Life

(Maybe you like different genres or topics, maybe you read faster than you used to, maybe you only like standalones now)

Everything changes, and our reading habits are not the exception, I’m still in love with high fantasy and YA contemporary romances but over time, especially this year, I’ve been reading further from my comfort zone and finding out new favorites.
