Hi lovelies! Hope you’re having a good week so far!

I don’t know what to write for the intro here anymore, because it’s a weekly meme, and not a post with unique type of content, so let’s just go straight and see which book I picked for this week’s Wednesday Shelf Control!

Hi!

A new week has started, and I have some announcements to make!
This Friday evening I’ll leave for a short vacation with my best friend to Danang city, where we will chill, probably take lots of photos, and just enjoy the time together! Meaning that I’ll probably be off from social media such as instagram and twitter. I will still surf all updates from you guys, but won’t be able to update myself, except for, maybe, instagram stories. I will come back next Tuesday afternoon, so I am currently scheduling my blog except for The Sunday Post, which will be later combined with next week’s one!

So now let’s get into this week’s prompt for Top Ten Tuesday, that is:

10 Things That Will Make Me Instantly NOT Want To Read A Book

The Sunday Post: April 17-23th

Hi!

Here I am again, with a weekly digest of what I did over this week, so you could catch up on everything you might have missed!

Let me just summarize that almost every single bookworm is currently suffering from waiting for ACOWAR, and I can’t also endure myself anymore, cause I NEED IT, I FREAKING NEED MY COPY ASAP!

But oh well, the moment ACOWAR releases, my special ACOWAR themed subscription box will be shipped, and I’m so excited for all the contents!

Now let’s get back to weekly wrap-up!

REVIEW: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas | OR HOW I DIED TWO WEEKS BEFORE ACOWAR RELEASE

book-review_20170419225244423

Okay, so tell me people who read this book long before me.

HOW COULD YOU WAIT FOR A WHOLE YEAR FOR ACOWAR?


And I’m really sorry, but I’m unable to keep the spoilers away from this review, so if you haven’t read the book yet, open this post at your own risk.


A Court of Mist and Fury

Published: May 3rd, 2016
Format: Paperback

Synopsis: Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two. (cr.: Goodreads)

Tag Thursday: Rapid Fire Book Tag

tag-thursday

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done a Tag Thursday, and since I haven’t been tagged by anyone particularly, I just picked a Tag I wanted to do out of those I’ve seen 😉

Also I will change my policy towards tagging, as I won’t pick people to do tags anymore, thus giving you all the choice of either getting yourself tagged, or ignoring completely. Because it’s really hard to keep a track of people you already tagged at previous memes.

So, let’s get onto this tag I picked from Beth @Reading Every Night!

Okay.

I have way too many books I got a long time ago, but still never get to read them. Question is, why you buy them even???

I DON’T KNOW, I JUST BUY THEM

Okay, so that’s why we have this meme going on and on and on.

The Sunday Post: April 10-16th

the-sunday-post

Hi! Happy Easter everyone!

I should apologize for my constant lack of online activity throughout this week, I don’t even know what to say about it, since I already announced my full comeback to social media, and yet, not much content came out of my pen. I should do better next week, especially when I still have lots of content to share (trust me or not, but I have a list of blog post ideas!). But let’s still do a wrap-up for this week?

Do The Talking: Following the mainstream (Or why I don’t read books I see everywhere at the same time with the world)

do-the-talking_20170407171454995

A.k.a. Why the heck are you not following book trends, Liliana???

Okay, this draft has been staying here unfinished for almost 3 weeks already, and, of course, I could’ve finished it within like, 4 hours, but then, as you probably remember, weather changes hit hard on my health, so I took a break from hardcore brainstorming. But now that I’m back, let’s have another #bookwormproblems discussion!

This time, I will talk about following the mainstream.
