It's Magic Time! Harry Potter Book Tag

Thursday, 15 August 2019


So, I finally found the perfect Harry Potter Book Tag to celebrate joining this year's NEWTs (I'm joining in an unofficial way since I didn't create a TBR pile neither it seems am I adding the books I'm read so some kind of sheet?). This tag was created by Book Roast, our NEWTs host, and it is perfect for this time of the year - witches and wizards studying for their NEWTs and packing their bags to return to Hogwarts on the first of September.

ARC Review // House of Salt and Sorrows

Tuesday, 6 August 2019

Title: House of Salt and Sorrows
Author: Erin A. Craig
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Published: August 6th 2019
Pages: 416 pages [ebook]

Get swept away in Erin A. Craig's mesmerizing House of Salt and Sorrows. As one by one her beautiful sisters mysteriously die on their isolated island estate, Annaleigh must unravel the curse that haunts her family. Be careful who you dance with. . . .

Four of Annaleigh Thaumas's eleven sisters have returned to the Salt, the brackish water that surrounds their lonely island home, their lives cut short, each more tragically than the last. Whispers throughout the Highmoor estate say the girls have been cursed by the gods.

When Annaleigh finds out that her sisters have been sneaking out to attend glittering midnight balls and dance until dawn, she's not sure whether to stop them--or join them. And when she begins to see a series of horrific, ghostly visions and more sisters die, she realizes she must solve the mystery--with the help of Cassius, a sea captain who knows much more about her than he should--and unravel the Thaumas curse before she descends into madness or . . . it claims her next.

Monthly Wrap-Up. Goodbye July

Wednesday, 31 July 2019

Can you believe July is gone?! It has been a long time since I wrote a monthly wrap up, but July has been an eventful month and I wanted to record it differently. I understand that this is not the best place to mention something so important, but this is something that must be mentioned: last week we lost someone from our community and it's heartbreaking. This is just so surreal! I can't even imagine what her family is going through. 😔 Moments like this make you think how fragile and unfair life is.

Hello book dragons. How are you doing? 😊 Today's Sunday Post is going to be really short (there will be no Around the Blogosphere) and I will probably not be much involved in the book community for the next week. Why? Well, I'll be defending my MA thesis very soon and I've a lot of stuff to get done to make sure everything goes smoothly with m defence. I've a feeling that it'll go horribly wrong...

The Cutest Book Tag Ever! "What Cats Do" Book Tag

Saturday, 20 July 2019


Cats and books. Books and cats. There's something better than such a match? 😸 I saw this fluffy tag at Inge @OfWonderland, two weeks ago, and I immediately added it to my tags-I-must-join list. Yes, I have list for everything. I wanted to share my answers last Saturday, not only because it's Caturday day, but also my not-so-little Iago turned three. Shall we look at some cat and book fluffiness?

Disclaim: This book tag may leave you squealing and gushing about adorable kittens and cats.

Good morning book lovers! How is everyone doing? 😊 It has been a while since I joined this meme (I was going to join it last week, but I was part of a blog tour). However that doesn't mean I've much to share. A few stressful days here and there, some sleepless nights because of the warm weather and lots of struggling to tackle down my book pile. But shall we talk about happier things?
