Sunday Post. All I Want For Christmas Are Books

Sunday, 16 December 2018

Hello Book Dragons. How was your week? Mine? Well, my thesis is still giving me headaches, but nothing that a good book can't fix. However, there was some progress - even if was only a five hundred words progress. What have you been reading? Any recommendations that I should add to my Christmas wishlist? I confess my last readings have been a bit disappointing, but I'm still hoping to find a new five stars reading before the year ends.

ARC Review // A Curse so Dark and Lonely

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she's instead somehow sucked into Rhen's cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn't know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what's at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Sunday Post. Santa is Coming to Town!

Can you believe that in three weeks times those who celebrate Christmas will be actually celebrating it? And that in one month we will be in 2019?! 😮 Where did time go?! *freaking out internally* As you'll be reading next, in November I didn't read as much as I hope to (even though three books had more than four hundred pages). Between joining NaNoWriMo and reliving my childhood Spyro, I didn't pay much attention to my books (or my thesis). Let's hope December is different because there are still so many books I want to read before the year ends. Oh, and pages for my thesis that I want to write...

There's a Portuguese expression that describes perfectly my week: I died to the world (I'm not sure if this translation makes sense). This week between NaNoWriMo (which I'm taking a break from because I've Carpal tunnel syndrome and its affecting me a lot writing so much every day. Or maybe I'll just write 1k words per day), playing Spyro Reignited Trilogy (I can't believe the game is finally here) and a few other things that kept me too busy, I have stayed inside my cocoon. I know it isn't good for my mental health so much time away from the "real world", but I'll be ready to face it this week... I promise!
