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.

TTT·On this hemisphere, we’re freezing

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.

Books inspired by places I visited

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”

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

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

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
