Does anyone know how can I have a conversation with Time? I know this is my usual ramble, but I'm starting to freak out how January is almost over - one more week and half and we will be in February - and I haven't reached the goals I set for myself regarding my thesis (I was supposed to have a full chapter written, edited and ready to send by the end of the month and I don't think a week will be enough to do it). And, there's this thing in February that is already stressing me and I can't think of a good damn reason (pardon my language) I signed myself up for this! *takes a deep breath*  Well, how was your week? Here's quick and short recap of mine...

Good morning bookworms. How's everyone doing?  I'm better from the cold the new year welcomed me with (I hope everyone who also got sick is doing better), however, I'm still not one hundred percent. I'm hoping this week I'll feel better, but with the cold weather I'm not so sure I'll. PS. I'll be blogger hopping later today because I've ten pages of thesis to edit and I need to them this Sunday. Wish me luck.

TTT. Can't Wait Books of 2019

I know that I'm diverging from today's topic, but I decided to talk about all the 2019 releases I'm excited about. Well, not all of them because then this would be a never-ending-post. So, to keep it short, I decided only to mention books whose covers have already been announced (dear Juliet Marillier, I need to see the cover of The Harp of Kings) and books that aren't sequels to any on-going series (but companions novels are acceptable). Now, can we just have a long conversation about how 2019 will be the year of beautiful book covers?

Happy New Year! 🎉 Wishing to every single one of by fellow Book Dragons one more year loaded with sweet recollections and cheerful times. Thank you so much to everyone who has read my posts over the past year and supported me through some hard moments Also, good luck decreasing the never-ending TBR pile that haunts every year that goes by. 😜 The new year has just began, but I have all these books I want to read and I'm already fearing that three hundred and seventy five days won't be enough to do it. *taking a deep breath* I solemnly swear I'll not freak out about it. Much.

TTT. My Favourite Books of 2018

Tuesday, 1 January 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! The arrival of a new year means crazy resolutions, setting your Goodreads goal and looking back at 2018 and create a thousand bookish lists rambling about the best, the good and the worst. Today, I'll be sharing with you my favourite books of 2018. I tried really hard to keep this list at ten (okay, perhaps I didn't try that hard because I really want to share with you all the books that made me cry, laugh, fall in love and be angry at the world). So, to keep this list short, I'm keeping away from mentioning any re-read such as This Savage Song and The Hunger Games trilogy (although, this time around, I loved the trilogy a lot more than I did before - especially Mockingjay).
