Yes, I know I sort-of did something similar with the TopTenTuesday on books of places I’m gonna visit BUT this time I’ve actually gone to these places.
When I was walking all around the British Isles I was half admiring the scenery and half thinking of all the stories that could take place in the places I was staying at. For example, Edinburgh was so obviously adapted into Harry Potter that I could imagine kids with robes and wands running around. The countryside in Ireland is so green and full of nature that I could clearly see where all the stories about fairies came from, not to mention the actual history of the places. So while I was there I started asking for recs but mostly I searched on goodreads and other blogs for stories taking place on the UK and Ireland.
Here are the books I want to read to revisit all those places! Continue reading “Books inspired by places I visited”
It’s Black History Month in the US and since there’s nothing like that in my country I’ve decided to take this opportunity to share with you all the books by black authors that I have on my TBR.
Since they are directly from MY list, it’s mostly YA fantasy or contemporary and all of them have pretty covers!

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!
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

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
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
WE ARE HERE and soon the books will follow! Here are SOME books that are coming out this year and I can’t wait

…and it was awesome
The other day I made a Diverse Fantasy List with my favorites and all of you were so amazing that I now have and even bigger TBR (and no regrets). To thank everyone who gave me a new rec and to spread the love for good fantasy books I’m sharing all the titles here! Continue reading “You all recommended me some Diverse Fantasy”
and here’s the loot
If there’s one thing you all should know about my grandparents is that they love books almost as much as me and my grandfather is a huge Tolkien fan.
The other day I went over and my grandma told me to pick whatever I liked since they’ve already read everything they have and she wanted the books to go to someone who really appreciates them… that’s how I went home with 22 books in my backpack (would not recommend)

Blogtober Day 2: October Releases
This month is actually THE month for new releases since we are getting two of my most anticipated releases of the year!
But there’s also!!
Thank you Jenniely for the Blogtober prompts!
Wich releases are you excited for this month?
BLOGTOBER DAY 1! Today I’m giving you all my TBR for this month, it’s pretty short because I’ll be trying to blog more and, sadly, that means less reading time but there’s still a bunch of really good books I wanna get to this month::
These picks come from the (slightly) larger Spring TBR I did the other week so they are subject to change depending completely on my mood once I finish what I’m reading right now…
Thank you Jenniely for the Blogtober prompts!
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.
