I have seen some negativity in the bookish community lately, especially on Twitter, and to counter that I’ve decided to write this post. I want to spread some more positivity by recommending some awesome Booktubers to all of you! So without further ado, let’s get started! Continue reading
A few days ago, I got the following notification. I can’t believe it has been a year since I started this lovely blog. Time really does fly! I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who follows me, likes my posts, reads them, comments, etc. You are all so so so appreciated! I still can’t believe so many people value my words enough to keep coming back! I have found a community that is warmer and more welcoming than I dared expecting. The people I have encountered have all been so nice and lovely! A massive thank you to every one who has supported me in the past year!
PS. Be on the lookout for something special 😉
Today’s post was prompted by a book I read recently. It contained some content I didn’t know would be in there and made me very uncomfortable to read. Things like child pornography for example. I again realised why trigger and content warnings are so important.
Today I’m here to write another book haul! I’ve accumulated twelve books over the course of the last two months. That is a lot for me to be honest, but I am excited for all of these. Anyway, let’s get started!
So I wasn’t very active on my blog this month, nor did I read a lot. I finished a total of three books. Because of the enormous workload for school I was very tired all month basically and I couldn’t put myself to reading and blogging. I’m not mad at myself, because in the end it’s still a hobby.
Today I’m blogging about my wonderful day in Canterbury. I love to include my travels here on my blog and I’m excited to share more! Continue reading
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
