Mini Halloween Book Tag!

mini halloween book tag

Knock, knock! Trick or treat?

It’s almost Halloween and it feels right to do a mini Halloween book tag, don’t you think so? I’m initially tagged by the lovely Dora @SwiftCoffee for a Halloween Creatures pick and believe me, I really want to answer all of those interesting questions but I’m preoccupied with work at the moment, I have no choice but to do a mini one. Still, please don’t forget to stop by Dora’s blog for many original posts & bookish thoughts!

Gladly, my dear friend, Audrey @audreywritesabroad created this Halloween Book Tag, allowing me to jump on the Halloween-themed bandwagon at the last minute! Y’all should check out her answers (and BLOG for sure) because she’s an outstanding writer. 😉

Without further ado, I hope you’ll enjoy reading this tag and having a wonderful time in the meanwhile! ❤

Life Update & Current Reads

life update & current reads

Hey guys!!!

Long time no see!!

How are y’all doing? Can’t believe it’s been 2 months since I last posted something here and I miss the hell out of it. *bawling* You know that feeling when you pick up your hobby-of-life for the first time after abandoning it for a long time? The thrill of sharing what you’re up to with fellow blogger friends, the excitement of waiting for an upcoming release from your favorite author, and the familiarity of being surrounded by your most faithful group of bookish besties? Yep, that’s what I’ve missed in the past few months and I surely want to reconnect with everyone/everything. 😥

So please allow me to tell you what’s going on with my life in general and what I’m gonna do about it before my short break’s whisked away not-too-unexpectedly. I’d be updating my current life status and what I plan to read this week in today’s post. Hope you enjoy it! ❤

Happy Sunday, guys!

How’s your weekend so far? I hope you’re having a great time; if not, here’s a little something to cheer you up! As you know, booklovers like you and me love not only the books themselves but also their relevant merchandise such as book swags (including bookmarks, book pins, characters-inspired posters/art works/coasters/keychains, signed book plates), bookish jewelry/accessories, candles with unique bookish scents, clothing, tote bags, and the list goes on and on and on.

Hence, when I discovered this newly established online shop called Literary Book Gifts, I couldn’t wait any longer to share the awesomeness of the website with you. I really have to say that Literary Book Gifts is pretty much made specially for us booklovers and I’m lucky enough to be offered a discount code for all of you. 😉

Exclusive! Title Announcement & Blurb of Metiks Fade #2 by Thomas Welsh

Hey guys!!! *waving enthusiastically*

How are you? I hope you’re having a fabulous day. Today I’ve got something really exciting to share with you and believe me, I’ve wanted to tell everyone about this super duper exhilarating book news since I learnt about it last week. 😀

First of all, I’m so honored to be offered a chance to announce the title for one of my all-time-favorite authors, Thomas Welsh‘s (author of Anna Undreaming), upcoming book, the sequel to Anna Undreaming. When he reached out to me via email last Tuesday, I, honestly, was secretly doing happy dancing in an office with 100 people. LOL

Back to this title announcement, all I can say is that the title and official blurb of the book will definitely prompt you to devour the series. Trust me, I can already feel the epicness of book 2 in Metiks Fade trilogy simply by its title! And my instinct is usually right. 😉

Alright, enough rambling and let’s cut to the chase, shall we?

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?
