The Rules:

I will start with a quote from a book I just finished a couple of days ago, and that I still haven’t found the guts to review, which is More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. Let me just say, the smile is deceiving…

more happy than notLet me just tell you, I don’t think I will ever forget this book… it was, to say the least, sucker punching in itself.


Today I’ll nominate, and remember, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to, but you should:

And YOU, obviously! If you’d like to do this challenge, please do!!!!

August TBR

As promised in my July Wrap-up, I will now share with you the books I’ll be reading in this month of August.

august_tbr_2

I will have a little more time this month than I had the last one. For one, I won’t work on weekends, because it’s August. The university will be empty, so I’ll use my time better, not having to wait for other people is extremely gratifying. We’re not having insufferable heat anymore here (which I hope holds up). So, this is my month in books (click on the cover to go to their GoodReads pages):

   

1. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – I’ve actually already started this one and am close to finishing it.

2. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas – obviously, right?! I wasn’t able to fit it into last month, but I’m sure will make time for it now, starting tomorrow (probably)!

3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – I will finally read the Shatter Me trilogy! As soon as I am done with Heir of Fire, I will pick this up.

4. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

5. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

6. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg – Like Bossypants, I decided to try the audiobook, which is great. I’m already 1 hour in and Aziz is super funny. I realized that audiobooks are perfect when I’m at the gym, walking to the university or grocery shopping!

7. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh – I plan for this one to be the only book I buy this month (and it’s already on it’s way), but I definitely want to give it a go before the last week of August.

8. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – Now I know I’m pushing the envelope, I HOPE I get time to squeeze this one in, I think it’s highly likely.

And that’s it! Obviously I would like to have more time and fit more books in (Ready Player One, you’ll be next), but I’ll have to see how this month unfolds. What do you think of my book choices for this month of August?

July Book Haul

Hi! As promised, I’m here today to share with you my July book haul, which obviously includes my shiny new The Mortal Instruments books, with their amazing new covers (the last books just got in today).

Let’s start with The Mortal Instruments, which by the way, I have obviously already read some time ago…

But they are so damn beautiful… look at their spines…

Right?! Right? Gorgeous!

Other series that I got my hands on this month was the Shatter Me trilogy. I had been trying to get them for a while now, but the bookstore usually just had 2 of the 3 books, and I wanted to buy them all at the same time, to make sure their sizes were the same. A couple of weeks ago I went to the bookstore to pick up another book, and there they were, so, obviously, they came home with me. Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.
