It’s Monday! What are you ReAdiNG? #2

Good afternoon, guys! 🙂 

Apparently it’s been a while since I last posted something casual or basically, something non-blog-tour-ish, so I decided to write my second post for this interesting meme. Besides, I also have some plans in mind regarding my bookish and real life; hence, I’m still contemplating on how to make such announcement.

Anyway, I’ll start today’s post by sharing my current TBR and the books I planned to finish this week and then I’ll be talking about other random stuff. 😀

Sounds good?

ARC Review: Rafferty Lincoln Loves… by Emily Williams *HIGHLY RECOMMENDED*

cover reveal

A sensational and compelling, coming of age story for older YA readers.

Rafferty Lincoln doesn’t like horses. Not one bit. But when the popular high school girl of his dreams, Liberty Ashburn pulls him into a world of lead ropes and horse brushes, who is he to say no?

Except this isn’t any old horse. This is the missing racehorse, Profit’s Red Ridge. The horse Rafferty and three of his friends are hiding from the world. And Liberty Ashburn isn’t just any ordinary high school girl. How far will Rafferty go to win her over?

An intense, witty and powerful coming of age story with startling consequences.

What’s going on in the book community?

Recently, people in the bookish community have been raving about the rules for requesting ARCs (advanced reader’s copies) on NetGalley and entering giveaways on Goodreads because bigger publishers in the former platform start giving access to U.S. reviewers/bloggers mostly (or other English speaking countries like the U.K., Canada and Australia) and the latter is going to limit their entrants to U.S. residents only.

What about the international readers/people?

Hence, as an international reader myself, I decided to share my opinion on this issue here and hopefully I’ll get to hear yours, too.

December TBR & Exciting News!

Happy DECEMBER, guys!!!

Woohoo, it’s that time of the year when the merry holiday season arrives and there are beautifully decorated stores on the streets and the atmosphere is just perfect. ❤ I love seeing all those Christmas trees with bright fairy lights, adorable adornments and intricately wrapped gifts under them because they always make me feel a sense of belonging and an extreme amount of gratitude. :”)

Well, December is not all about Christmas or holidays; it’s also a great time for book lovers to either get lots of books/bookish items (with perfect excuses) or plan to read a bunch of books (like I do) JUST BECAUSE.

So sit back, relax and let me show you what I have in mind for this wonderful month! Sounds good?

The Fall Book Tag

For the first time in my blogging life, I finally catch up with something trendy! Thanks to Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile for tagging me in this fun tag!

To begin with, The Fall Book Tag as well as the beautiful graphic design were created by the lovely Shanah from Bionic Book Worm so please go take a look at her blog, too! I love the questions a lot and I tag anyone who’d like to add some autumn-ish color to your blog. ❤
