I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on my blog, but I like interior design. There is something so aesthetically pleasing about a good interior design. Another thing I really love is –as you all know– books! So today I’m combining the two and I’m talking about bookish interior design! Continue reading
Aaru by David Meredith is the first review copy I’ve received and I’m so excited to review it! A big thank you to the author for sending it to me! That being said, this will be an honest review. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Rose is dying. Her body is wasted and skeletal. She is too sick and weak to move. Every day is an agony and her only hope is that death will find her swiftly before the pain grows too great to bear.
She is sixteen years old.
Rose has made peace with her fate, but her younger sister, Koren, certainly has not. Though all hope appears lost Koren convinces Rose to make one final attempt at saving her life after a mysterious man in a white lab coat approaches their family about an unorthodox and experimental procedure. A copy of Rose’s radiant mind is uploaded to a massive super computer called Aaru – a virtual paradise where the great and the righteous might live forever in an arcadian world free from pain, illness, and death. Elysian Industries is set to begin offering the service to those who can afford it and hires Koren to be their spokes-model.
Within a matter of weeks, the sisters’ faces are nationally ubiquitous, but they soon discover that neither celebrity nor immortality is as utopian as they think. Not everyone is pleased with the idea of life everlasting for sale.
What unfolds is a whirlwind of controversy, sabotage, obsession, and danger. Rose and Koren must struggle to find meaning in their chaotic new lives and at the same time hold true to each other as Aaru challenges all they ever knew about life, love, and death and everything they thought they really believed.
It is time to wrap up another month! The year really is going by quickly. On the first of September I went back to school and I got a lot busier. Let’s get started! Continue reading

A few months ago I first noticed the new Dutch / Belgian covers for the Throne of Glass series. I have been mad about it ever since and today I wanted to talk about it with you. You might wonder why I’m only writing this post now. Well, since Tower of Dawn came out recently, a lot of people have again been complaining about the cover and that was what inspired this.

I’m a mood reader and for me, certain seasons equal certain books. In fall I love to read Fantasy, Historical Fiction and darker contemporaries. It just fits the mood. I love to curl up on a rainy day with an atmospheric read. I’m writing this post to recommend you some of these kinds of books!
I finished Geekerella yesterday and I really enjoyed it. This review will be spoiler-free!
Anything can happen once upon a con…
When geek girl Elle Wittimer sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of Starfield, she has to enter. First prize is an invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out once and for all—not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.
Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. He used to live for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-aching photo sessions and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already dismissed him as just another heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.
