I cannot resist reading challenges, even more so if it's one to give certain groups a louder voice. This time? Asian authors! I'll be doing an extra effort to read books by Asian authors this year, all thanks to #YARC2019!
We all know it happens a lot. Some books get all the hype, all the attention and everybody keeps shouting about them while other novels? Well.. Those simply disappear into the void to barely be heard from again. I've come across books like that. Books I think deserve to be shared and shouted about, yet nobody does because this and that new release is demanding all their attention. Safe to say I absolutely love this week's topic and am - for once - not going to put my own spin on it!
I was totally in the mood for a whimsical, circus-y setting and was told Daughter of the Burning City would deliver on that front. Unfortunately.. there were definitely some downsides to this novel..
Time to introduce you - or reintroduce to the people who joined last year - to Monstrous March, a month of reading monstrous books! Are you ready?!
Whenever we try convincing ourselves of things, we focus on the good. Good reading habits? Well! Let's see what mine are? And maybe I can trick the Easter Bunny into giving me books instead of chocolate - a girl can dream.
Being on pregnancy leave definitely gives one plenty of time to read - let me prove it in this post, haha! Also - all the sleep. Yes, please.
It might be the week of Valentine's Day - and my due date, oh crap - but that doesn't mean it all has to be lovey-dovey! Sure, there are some romantic relationships that turn me to mush just thinking about them but.. there are also other couples - platonic couples - that make my heart beat faster. Makes sense that I'm simply using both of those to create this post, right?!
