Book Traveling Thursdays: For the first time again

Every week, Danielle (from Danielle’s Book Blog) and Cátia (from TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch) host a feature called Book Traveling Thursdays on Goodreads. They give you a topic each Thursday and you choose a book that you think fits. Then comes the fun part: a cover showdown! You post the original cover, the cover from your country (which I won’t be doing because the books aren’t published here), and then your favorite and least favorite cover from any edition around the world.

This week’s topic is a book I wish I could read for the first time again. I have to go with The Color Purple by Alice Walker. I was blown away by that book and I’d love to be surprised by it all over again. Let’s check out the covers!

Reading ALL Around the World

I’m constantly looking to expand my reading and this time around I don’t mean just different genres. I mean reading about different people, cultures, and places too.

Finally, from this year on, I’m taking a step towards that goal. Jean, from Howling Frog Books, is hosting the Reading ALL Around the World club and I’m joining it! Here I explain the challenge a bit, but for the detailed description and sign up page, go HERE.

Books I Loved In 2016

2016 has come to an end and it’s always fun to look back and check what we’ve accomplished. I set up my goal for 50 books, which for me was a lot, and I did it! Of course, not all the books were favorites, so I wanted to share with you the ones that I truly loved here.

It was hard, but I narrowed them down as much as I could and divided them into two categories: Novels and Others. They are in no particular order and I only put the first book of the series because I’m lazy (sorry). Let’s check them out!

Book Traveling Thursdays: A book for the holidays

Every week, Danielle (from Danielle’s Book Blog) and Cátia (from TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch) host a feature called Book Traveling Thursdays on Goodreads. They give you a topic each Thursday and you choose a book that you think fits. Then comes the fun part: a cover showdown! You post the original cover, the cover from your country (which I won’t be doing because the books aren’t published here), and then your favorite and least favorite cover from any edition around the world.

This week’s topic is a book that makes me think of the holidays. As I celebrate Christmas, a classic for me during this time of the year is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I think it’s a heartwarming tale and I remember enjoying the writing a lot. Also, it’s a very quick read, so you can easily make reading it on Christmas day a tradition. Let’s check its covers out!

Book Traveling Thursdays: One of my favorite reads of the year

Every week, Danielle (from Danielle’s Book Blog) and Cátia (from TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch) host a feature called Book Traveling Thursdays on Goodreads. They give you a topic each Thursday and you choose a book that you think fits. Then comes the fun part: a cover showdown! You post the original cover, the cover from your country (which I won’t be doing because the books aren’t published here), and then your favorite and least favorite cover from any edition around the world.

This week’s topic is one of my favorite books of 2016. I chose The Key by Sara Bergmark Elfgren and Mats Strandberg, which is the third book of the Engelsfors trilogy. I read it this year, but it was published in 2013. The series didn’t get a strong start for me, but each book got better and, in the end, I didn’t want to part from the characters! The trilogy deals with a group of very different girls who have to come together as witches and fight evil in a little town in Sweden called Engelsfors. Now, let’s check out the covers!

November Wrap-Up

Another month came and went! November wasn’t the best month of the year, was it? A certain election shook the world. My reading and blogging slump was real. Despite not working full-time anymore, I couldn’t achieve much because I couldn’t concentrate on anything. However, it wasn’t all bad. I celebrated my birthday! Well… I was actually sick on my birthday and had to spend it in bed, but I celebrated a bit anyway. And then the Gilmore Girls revival came, which I was so excited about, but it sort of disappointed me. Overall, November kinda sucked, but that’s okay! Ups and downs, right? December holds promise ❄☃🌲

This week’s topic is a book from one of my favorite genres. I went with classics, even though I haven’t read as many as I would like to. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka is one that I remember enjoying a bunch of years ago and that I keep thinking about. So,  let’s check out the covers!
