Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon | TBR 2017 Round II


It is that time of the year again. It is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon time! I wasn't sure about participating this second time around but I couldn't resist. I always have an incredibly good time, not only sharing my reading during 24 hours straight but also keeping with other people's reading progresses. So, this Saturday (the 21st) you'll find me between the pages of many books.

I have already started Uni but I'll take the day off because I truly want to dedicate all my time to read. I went for short novels and a picture book this time as to not burn myself too much during the day:

- Franklin's Flying Bookshop by Jen Campbell. Perfect when one is starting to notice the tiredness.
- Tin Man by Sarah Winman. 
- The Tobacconist by Robert Seethaler.
- Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.

As always, I'll write another post where I'll be updating my reading and as always, I would love for you to link in the comments where you'll be updating yours.

Autumn Readathon | TBR


Hello guys! Long time, no see! I haven't blogged since April or May but I wanted to make a quick comeback during the rest of October because there are a few readathons happening right now which I'll be participating on. This post is all related to Mercedes' readathon which will run from Sunday 22nd to Saturday 28th of October. She announced it when she reached 30K subscribers on her youtube channel - which I recommend you all go and subscribe to because she's one of my favourites.

Weekend Reads | 7.07.2017


Another friday, another weekend reads! At the beginning of the week I started reading The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks and in all fairness I'm not sure what to make out of it. It's incredibly dark in its subject matter but the story isn't pulling me in as much as I was expecting but it is at least an interesting novel.

Book Review | Ties by Domenico Starnone

Ties by Domenico Starnone {Goodreads}
Published by Europa Editions in 2017
Paperback edition; 150 pages {BookDepository}

“In case it’s slipped your mind, Dear Sir, let me remind you: I am your wife. I know that this once pleased you and that now, suddenly, it chafes. I know you pretend that I don’t exist, and that I never existed…” are the words which open Ties, a novel about a fractured marriage told from the perspective of the wife, the husband and the children. I went into it with zero expectations since I received it in my March Moth Box and haven’t heard about it before and I was taken completely by surprise.

June 2017


June is over and good riddance! I should acknowledge that although the beginning was stressful with my last two finals and sad because Sense8 got cancelled, the end of the month was way better. After a lot of fight from the fandom we got the amazing news yesterday that Netflix is gonna give us an ending for the show, after saying the cancellation was irrevocable. I still believe this show deserves way more seasons because everything about it is amazing but I'm happy that we can - at least for now - get the ending we deserve so that the story gets closure. And who knows, if we bring in enough numbers we might get a third season.

Book Haul | June 2017



Hi guys! I'm sorry for being a bit absent on the blog and on instagram these past few days despite having all the free time in the world because I'm on holidays. The thing is that my laptop is almost dead; it takes forever to turn on and after that it goes down 10 minutes later and it's very frustrating so I haven't been using it because I can't be bothered and so I haven't written any single post or edit any pictures. And here comes the second problem, my camera is doing weird stuff. It won't focus and most of the pictures come with a blurry feel to them so I'm incredibly frustrated because replacing both a laptop and a camera is not cheap.
