Life Events and 2 Reading Lists

Hi, dearies! 

I trust you’re all safe and well. 🍂 This one is a little off the track, but I wanted to mention I might not be as active this month; I have been dealing with some personal things with my family and will be focusing on them for September. 🍂 

My father needs heart ❤️ surgery, and we’re in the process of saving up and receiving any small contribution to help us achieve this goal, you can see the crowdfunding here, and if you can share, that is also a way of helping us. 

As I said, this is happening right now, so that’s why I’m kind of on a hiatus this month, not many posts on Instagram or here on the blog, but I’ll be back soon, hopefully. And thank you to all who have reached out or shared the news.

Fiction – Graphic novels & comics I didn’t know

I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

Hello, dearies! ✨

Happy 4th of July ✨ to those who celebrate it. I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

So, I saw these and thought you might like to check them out too, I haven’t read them or anything, I just read the titles and thought that they could be included in the TBR, so don’t take my word for it. 😂📚

Here we go.

If you read The Duke and I then you should read… 👀 📚

If you read the Duke and I then you should probably/would probably read these romance books.

Hello, dearies! 

I know, it has been some time since I published a new one, and this one not even a review? The horror! 

I have been working in my mundane job, and my reading has been the lowest in months. I am supposed to be reading The Brightest Night (which I have loved so far) but I stopped before half of it was over because I want a clearer mind to pay attention to it, so you might say that I am in a reading slump. Nothing to do with my last read, I love the Origin and Lux world.

5 eBooks that You didn’t know Existed

Probably.

Hello, dearies! As I mentioned before, Smashwords is having a week of deals for eBooks, you can find from 25% to 100% off so don’t be afraid to stop by it and take a look at the authors there, some like myself are self-published, and it’s a great place to let your stories be known.

Now, I found these titles that I think might be of interest to you, well, I thought that I could add them to my never-ending TBR list but that’s me. Check them out. (If you want any, you can click on the title for it and you’ll be directed to the site).

First Reads during the New Year 📚

🎉🎈Happy 2021 🎉🎈

Hello, dearies! I hope your New Year’s holiday was full of light and safety. It seems that’s what we’re wishing these days, but that’s life during pandemics.

Did you read a lot? I started reading (again… *cough* again a second time) The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, aka Outlander 5 and I want to finish this want, but it’s long, and I haven’t had the focus to really enjoyed, I started in December but didn’t continue because there were too many distractions, family and work and you know the drill, the mundane who would not let you sit down and enjoy the book. So, I started a secondary book that ought to be shorter and quicker, and well, I’m still reading it, though I’d had a few good laughs, it’s completely different from TFC, I don’t know if you watched the movie (I have, a couple of times) but I’m reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, and it’s quite funny to see how Rebbeca finds excuses in the oddest most absurd ways to buy something, which I suppose is the point but in the book is so much in your face then it’s in the movie, but I am not reviewing right now, I was telling a story of what I’m reading, and those are the two on my phone. As for paperbacks, I have The Red Scrolls of Magic, Magnus and Alec from the Shadowhunters world, which I really, really want to read but I also want to concentrate on it. And I have a hardcover, The Brightest Night, this one, I’m more afraid than anything else to read because I feel like I’m going to be absorbed completely, and also I may cry and laugh in equal amounts.

But those are the ones I have at the top of the TBR, I’m leaving the list of these 4 next, in case you want to add them to your own list.

Midnight Sun: Excitement or not?

New book by Stephenie Meyer

Alternative to Twilight 

Twilight from Edward’s POV

So, are we reading it or not?

Hello, readers! Are you excited about Midnight Sun? I think it would be cool to finally see this side of the story, back when the Twilight Saga was over we have a sneak peek into Edward’s POV and back then, it was awesome and I loved it, but what happened?

2009 Reads

This was going to be all the books I was reading in 2009 but now let us say a decade or so ago. I cannot really remember what I had in my hands back then, I was actually shock when I realised that Twilight was a decade ago, but then I started to think back and tried to remember what I really was reading and could not actually recall, thought I will do my best to name some titles here.
