TOP 5 TUESDAY #10 : HYPED BOOKS I’M NOT GOING TO READ

A weekly meme created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, now hosted by the amazing Meeghan at Meeghan reads.

Today we are taking a look at the hyped books I’m not going to read. Wow, this will be brutal. Mostly because I’ve had several hyped books listed on my Popsugar challenges throughout the years and I know I’m not going to read those but yet I still put them in there thinking “maybe I’ll actually read it now then”. So, I guess I will be calling myself out today.

I am a Belle. I control Beauty.

In the opulent world of Orléans, the people are born grey and damned, and only a Belle’s powers can make them beautiful.

Camellia Beauregard wants to be the favourite Belle – the one chosen by the queen to tend to the royal family.

But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favourite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that her powers may be far greater – and far darker – than she ever imagined.

When the queen asks Camellia to break the rules she lives by to save the ailing princess, she faces an impossible decision: protect herself and the way of the Belles, or risk her own life, and change the world forever.

TAG THURSDAY #1 : MID YEAR BOOK FREAK OUT

Hello every lovely human being! Hope your week is going on smoothly and you’ve had a nice time! It has been one hot summer here, for sure. Usually it rains through the whole summer, maybe couple days of sun here an there, in Finland. But now there has been over +30 warm every single day and it has rained only once at night.
I’m not going to whine about it, because I really do like it! But we need more ACs in our house for sure, because I bet it’s hotter inside than outside.

Anyway, today we are taking a look at the Mid Year Book Freak Out tag! I’m well aware that we have passed the mid year mark already, but it’s not yet too late to do that, right?

I MADE IT A CHORE, AGAIN

Hello every lovely human out there!

Aa some of you might have noticed, i’ve been gone for a ridiculously long time. I have said many times that I’m coming back, but never did that. Why?

Well. I did it again. Apparently I didn’t learn anything from last year nor the ole before that. I made reading a chore, again.. 🙄 I pushed myself to read books i’ve listed on my challenges to the point when i couldn’t even bare to look at my shelves without feeling like a failure.. why? For not completing my challenges, not finishing books fast enough.

So I just dropped everything then. I’ve been working full time and now I have my summer leave of one week, alone all my three kids. But! I have finally picked up a book!! I got rid of every spreadsheet I made for this years reading and now I’m just reading whatever the heck I feel like reading, trying not to care if it fits to any prompts or not.

I want to also thank every one of you lovely humans who have stuck here with me even though i haven’t been active at all. And all of you new lovely humans who have joined here even though I haven’t made a single post! ♥️

Also, i think i made a mistake ordering that Fae Crate back in March……. Still haven’t received the box. Maybe before christmas?

REVIEW : NINTH HOUSE

SERIES: Alex Stern
GENRE: Fantasy
AGE CATEGORY: Adult
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 458
PUBLISHED: October 9th 2019
PUBLISHER: Gollancz

Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.
