In a Facebook group we are both in, TBR & Beyond, Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Choksi was a group read. We both want to read more middle grade, so we decided to join in. The sypnosis sounded really interesting. Did Aru Shah and the End of Time meet our expectations? Keep reading to find out!
As a booklover, a signed book by an author I love is a perfect thing to me. That being said it can be hard when living in Europe to get signed books. One, authors don’t come here very often or when they do it’s somewhere else in Europe. Or it’s too expensive to have a book shipped here. In the last year I have managed to get a nice collection of signed books.
This was the first week in quite a long time that I didn’t have a tag ready. So to choose a new tag, I decided to Google Book Blog Tags. I stumbled upon this Fictional Boyfriend Tag on The Book Nut‘s blog. Answering these questions is going to be hard, because there are plenty of good ficitional boyfriend candidates.
We weren’t even planning on going to YALFest this year. When the authors were announced, we didn’t know any of them and most of the books weren’t going to be published until a month before YALFest 2018. In the end, after reading one of the author’s books, we just had to go!
We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since last January Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is an interesting one. Best Character Names. The ten I chose made the list, because I like the sound of them or I think that they fit the character.
Flip Trick by Amo Jones sounds like it’s going to be a really good book. Amo Jones is an author that is new to me, but I have heard many great things about her other books. Today I get to show you all the cover and you can read the sypnosis as well.
One Baby Daddy is the second book I’ve read by Meghan Quinn. Last year I read Dear Life and was really impressed. That book had me in tears and left me wanting more. She has released more books since then, but I haven’t had the chance to read them. My next book by her was One Baby Daddy. It’s a romance with sports, my favorite kind. If you want to know what I thought of this book, keep on reading!
The start of this review actually has a funny story. When I saw the signup for The Brightsiders, I didn’t realize Jen Wilde is also the author of Queens of Geek. I loved that book, so I was actually really excited to start The Brightsiders. If it lived up to my expectations, which were pretty high after reading Queens of Geek, is something you can read in this review!
We were looking for something to post on Sundays when we don’t have anything planned. Then I saw a post on Early Bookish Bird‘s blog and it seemed like the perfect fit. She started #howimetmybook so we’re alternating between #howimetmybook and Down the TBR hole on Sundays from now on! Today I will be posting about how I met The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
In this post we tell the story behind our books. The following questions will be answered: Where did we get the book? Why did we pick it up? What made us pick it up in the first place?
Last year Owlcrate had a shop wide discount for a couple of their previous boxes and I obviously couldn’t contain myself haha. One of the boxes had a sea theme and since I already knew what was in the box I had to get it. The book that was included was Daughter of the Pirate King and for the longest time I planned on reading it…. We all know how that goes right 😉 Luckily I finally managed to pick it up and I devoured it in one sitting! Continue reading “Review | Daughter of the Pirate King – Tricia Levenseller”
