The End of a Decade. 27 YA Dystopian Reads

For those who don't know, I'm a very clueless person. I only realized it was actually the end of the decade a few days ago when I saw on twitter someone talking about her/his/their favourite books of the last ten years. I might be clueless, but I do want to celebrate all those books that came out in the last decade. Okay. This might be very ambitious. Especially since I've little to no time to blog. Well, then, I'm sharing with you some YA dystopias that inspired a decade and that little did I know would inspired my MA thesis.

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.
Long time, no see, right? I can't remember the last time I joined Sunday Post. Although I always try to catch up with everyone's week every Sunday. 😊 December has just arrived - I'll be decorating our Christmas tree today (my cats will keep throwing it to the floor, but I have to do it) - and in no time we will be celebrating 2020. Time does love to fly, doesn't it?

ARC Review // Blood Heir

Title: Blood Heir
Author: Amélie Wen Zhao
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Published: 19th November 2019
Pages: 464 pages 

This hot debut is the first book in an epic new series about a princess hiding a dark secret and the con man she must trust to clear her name for her father's murder.

In the Cyrilian Empire, Affinites are reviled. Their varied gifts to control the world around them are unnatural—dangerous. And Anastacya Mikhailov, the crown princess, has a terrifying secret. Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life hidden behind palace walls.

When Ana’s father, the emperor, is murdered, her world is shattered. Framed as his killer, Ana must flee the palace to save her life. And to clear her name, she must find her father’s murderer on her own. But the Cyrilia beyond the palace walls is far different from the one she thought she knew. Corruption rules the land, and a greater conspiracy is at work—one that threatens the very balance of her world. And there is only one person corrupt enough to help Ana get to its core: Ramson Quicktongue.

A cunning crime lord of the Cyrilian underworld, Ramson has sinister plans—though he might have met his match in Ana. Because in this story, the princess might be the most dangerous player of all.

ARC Review // The Never Tilting World

Author: Rin Chupeco
Publisher: Harper Teen
Published: 15th October 2019
Pages: 496 pages 

Frozen meets Mad Max in this epic teen fantasy duology bursting with star-crossed romance, immortal heroines, and elemental magic, perfect for fans of Furyborn.

Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun.

While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal.

But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.

Sunday Post. Everything is Going to be Okay, Right?

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.

Hello, fellow book lovers. How are you doing? 😊 I'm starting to feel the worse blogger to walk on earth since I rarely share new posts, finish any new posts or blog hop. How did my life come to this?! Every day, I find less time for my hobbies and for the things that make me happy. Every day, I find myself more stressed and with no opportunity to slow down and take a deep breath. I no longer feel like everything is going to be okay...

Book Aesthetic & Blog Tour. The Never Tilting World

Welcome to The Never Tilting World Blog Tour. I know you were expecting a review from me today, but this week was a chaotic hell. Due to personal issues and a blackout, I was not able to finish this beautiful book (you can still expect a review until the end of the month). Because of such, I decided to create a book aesthetic, inspired by Aeon, an world divided in two. Ps. There's a giveaway and it's international! Don't forget to join it.
