3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge (5): Day 3


Hello! Jesalin @Life : books, the arts, and nature was kind enough to tag me for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge, so here we go people, for the 5th time!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day. (this is my 5th time doing this, so I nominate whoever wants to do it, ok?)

Welcome back for day 3! On the first day I gave you a quote from Eleanor & Park, and on the second day it was from My Heart and Other Black Holes. Today I’ll give you a quote by none other than the brilliant J.K. Rowling, from her book (and Harvard commencement speech) Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination.


October Book Haul


Guys, I did super well this month! I only bought 2 books, and that was way back in the very beginning of this month. And then I held my own and didn’t get anything else. Ok, honesty time, it wasn’t for lack of trying… I was running around Seoul and Japan desperately trying to find one book in English (that I didn’t already have) and I failed… I found some in South Korea, but the price just wasn’t worth it. When I got back I tried to find Carry On on my local bookshop, but no dice, so I didn’t bought anything else.

In terms of physical copies, I got:

Then I didn’t buy any ebooks, again, not for lack of trying, but Amazon was going crazy with me because my country on Amazon is Portugal, and I was either in Spain or in the middle of Asia during this month, and it wasn’t letting me buy books at the portuguese price – just so you know, they are more expensive if I change the country to Spain and I don’t get it!

I did request and got approved for a bunch of Netgalley eARCs… I went on a request spree, because I spent most of my month reading ARCs, as you’ll see tomorrow on my wrap-up post. So, here they are:


Crystallum (Primordial Principles #1) by Laney McMann

Frosh: First Blush (Frosh #1) by Mónica B. Wagner

Always Second Best (Broken Dreams #2) by Elodie Nowodazkij

Ok… I was really into romances and New Adult books this past month, they’re exactly right for the time in between huge and more heavy fantasy series. That it is, 12 book, 10 of each eARCs… 😀
