The great thing about being a BroodyBFF (that’s what the Street Team calls itself) is that we get so many awesome challenges, and today’s challenge is to talk about sequels! So I’m going to tell you about the 2 books that should most definitely have a sequel as it makes me cry every time I think that all those loose ends will never be tied up.
2017 is nearly here, and with it come awesome new books! Eeeehhhh, this is so exciting! So here I am to deliver you a breathtaking list of spectacular books that are about to fill our shelves in the year to come.
Today I’m going to show you my Favourite Bookish Shops. As you probably know – if you don’t then you’ll learn now – I have a Redbubble shop where you can find lots of bookish designs created by me, available in a lot of awesome products such as mugs and T-shirts. But there are other masters out there, people that create beautiful designs that I can’t help but goggle at, shops that I must introduce you to cause I’m sure that you’ll love them as much as I do.
The best thing about bookstagramming is that there is such a large community of awesome bookish photographers that I can’t stop checking my feed every half-an-hour (there are times when I check it every 5 minutes or so but let’s pretend that I’m not that addicted). I truly admire these gods and goddesses of bookstagram and I can’t stop dreaming that someday (some distant day in an impossible future in a far, far, far awayland) I will be like them and have 9K followers. Someday… Meet my idols, my teachers, the masters of bookstagramming…
In this past few months I started exchanging opinions and emojis with several bloggers and bookstagrammers and I couldn’t be more happy of belonging to this community. Before creating my blog I think that I felt quite alone in my reading world. Well, me and my mother would sporadically exchange bookish opinions while washing the dishes but I wanted more. I’m always wanting more. That is why I’m sure this will not be the last of this sort of posts. Down below I’ll be sharing my 5 favourite bookish blogs, but bloggers are being born everyday and I’m sure that soon I’ll have a few more favourites that I can’t avoid sharing with you.
Autumn is here – YAY!!! Do you know what that means? Forests stained in oranges and reds, the smell of homemade pies in the air, guys in beanies, warm jackets and NEW BOOKS! As you can see, I pretty much love this season, not to mention the awesome new releases that will delight us during the following months.
I shall now present you, my dear bookworms, with my Top 5 books of this season – my 2016 autumn babies, as I like to call them :p
Admit it: everyone has their favourite genres. When you enter a bookshop, don’t you always find yourself walking towards that same aisle? I know I do!
Today, I’m going to give you a brief list of my top 5 genres (starting from the bottom up like on TV :p) and I’m going to show you my favourite book in each of those genres.
So, LET’S START THE COUNTDOWN!!!
I can read in Portuguese, Spanish and English *gasp*. Yup, they’re three languages, which makes me think – I’m actually a trilingual :p . No guys, I’m not bragging. Although you’re probably thinking “Wow, that’s so awesome”, and it is a way, being a trilingual reader also has it’s bad, annoying moments.
It’s a hard choice, mainly since they all have pros and cons that, somehow, counterbalance each other. Taking a look at my bookcase, I realized that probably 95% of my books are paperbacks (no, I didn’t do the math :p), but is this a clear proof of my preference for this kind of books or did it happen by chance?
To try to answer this question, I’m going to take you through a “tour” of each type of book.
When I talk about getting out of your comfort zone, I mean in reading – duh! I know what you are probably thinking – “but I love my high fantasy novels or my soppy historical romances”. There’s nothing wrong about that and, once you get out of your comfort zone, you can always come back to your safe place.
