Whether it’s visiting a place or learn a cool ability, books are always showcasing awesome things I want to know how to do or simple learn more about them, so let’s check them out!

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This time I’m talking about books that have under 2000 ratings on Goodreads that I’ve enjoyed. I’ve talked about most of them before on other posts, but I can’t help to mention them again! I noticed they are all a bit unconventional, but they have all stayed with me after reading them for one reason or another and I’m glad I can share them again with you. Let’s check them out:

This is my first ever wrap-up post! Last month I wasn’t able to do it because… well, because I didn’t realize the month had ended. It flew by. This time I was ready! June was a very busy month, but good nonetheless. I enjoyed my reads and I think I finally got the hang of this blogging thing, even though I might fail sometimes. But let’s not waste any more time, let’s go straight to it. Here’s my June 2016 monthly wrap-up:

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This time I’m talking about books to read in a day. These are books that are very short or very easy to read so you can finish them in just hours. Without further ado, here they are with their number of pages (although they vary according to each edition) and a little description:

Another day, another installment of my Genre Exploration series, where I discuss genres I don’t normally pick up, define them, talk about their classics and new releases, recommend books and authors, and much more.
If you want to read poetry but don’t know where to start, this is for you! It is also helpful for anyone who wants to read more poetry or maybe look at it from a different perspective. A few weeks back I discussed in this post what poetry was and some common misconceptions people have about it, so today I wanted to share with you some tips to help you start exploring poetry in the less intimidating way possible. These have worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Let’s check them out!

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This time I’m listing my most anticipated releases for the rest of 2016. I’m not one to usually pay attention to upcoming releases because I usually find books that have already been published, but there’s always the exception with series or authors I love. Since joining the online book community though, I’ve been a lot more attentive to what books are coming and I’ve gathered a few of them here that I’m really excited about. Here they are in no particular order:

Every time I feel like I need a little reading inspiration, I’m sure to check some YouTube videos of lovely people talking about books. Nothing makes me want to read more than people showing their TBR piles, seeing their book hauls, or listening to their thoughts on their latest reads. Here I have a few BookTubers with genres and opinions similar to mine that I want to share with you. Check them out: Continue reading “Favorite BookTubers” →

Sam from Thoughts on Tomes is hosting the first ever Tome Topple Readathon from June 5th to June 19th. The Readathon consists in reading big books (500+ pages) and reading as many pages as possible. The challenge is tackling those books that we are sometimes afraid to pick up because they’re really long. Today (June 4th) is the last day to sign up if you want to participate in an international giveaway of a 500+ book. You don’t have to sign up to participate in the readathon, that’s just for the giveaway.
To make things even more fun, Sam has created some challenges that you can try to accomplish if you want, although it’s not mandatory. Keep in mind that you can pick something that fits more than one challenge.
- Read more than one big book.
- Take a graphic novel break.
- Read a tome that is part of a series.
- Read over 500 pages in one week.
- Read an adult novel.
I decided to join in and here’s the list of books I’m hoping to get through:

Today I’ve compiled a little list where I chose one book per genre I love to recommend to you in just a few words. The genres I’ll be talking about are classic, fantasy, young adult, historical fiction, mystery/thriller, and short stories. I think each of the books represents its genre pretty well and I’ve enjoyed them all very much, so I hope that you can pick any of these up and give them a chance. Go ahead and check them out:
