Keep it Fresh book Tag

Look at that, I still have some unanswered tags from aaaages ago it seems appropriate to dust them off as a part of some spring cleaning ;). Since It’s finally getting warm outside and I had a nice fruit-filled breakfast today I’m gonna go with the fruitiest tag there is. I’ve been tagged twice for this one by Syc and Mari. Big thanks to both of you for thinking about me!

The Rules

  1. Post the rules before starting and link back to this post as a reference for other bloggers.
  2. Part A: Answer each of the fruit questions (each fruit corresponds to a book!) & add pictures plus why you thought that particular book deserves that particular fruit if possible.
  3. Part B: Choose your favorite fruit (even if it is one of the fruits in part A). Come up with a question that we didn’t ask and answer it.
  4. Part C: Create your own smoothie from the fruits in Part A (imagine a Lemon-Tomato-Apple smoothie ~ yuck), and find a book that would correlate to your smoothie!
  5. Nominate as many and anyone that you think are deserving of this award but it would be nice if you nominated a minimum of 5!
  6. Notify your nominees of the nomination.
  7. The most important rule? Have fun and of course, keep it fresh!

The Fruits

Part A

1. Strawberries: Name the sweetest book you’ve read. (e.g. sweet in terms of the characters or if the story takes place in a sweet world… etc.)

I’ve got to say “Enchanted” because it’s so cute and sweet and adorable and I love it :). Continue reading “Keep it Fresh book Tag”

What happened in January – monthly summary

Oh, look! January is over. Admit it, you already forgot about your yearly goals :P. Well, maybe not yet, I still have some of them in mind.

Anyway, considering that only the cold bothered me this month I’m quite satisfied with it. And since I know some people had some nasty time this month – I wish you all the best for the rest of the year!

The bookish statistics

  • new-known-januaryFinished 9 stories: 1 ebook, 4 paper books, 4 graphic novels, together 2365 pages.
  • Average rating: 3.89
  • Books bought: 8 which still makes my bought-to-read ratio positive, but only slightly.
  • I’m fixing my new to known authors ratio. And by fixing I mean I’ve read more books by the authors I already knew and liked before. Will see if I can hold it till the rest of the year. My goal is to make it more or less equal amount.

Sooo there goes my “buy fewer books” goal, right? But I still have 11 more months to make the balance right and those Gaiman book covers are amazing! Continue reading “What happened in January – monthly summary”

The new bookish subscription Box for Europe!

Hi guys! I’ve got some awesome news for those of you who, just like me, live way too far from all those fantastic book boxes. I know it will sound like a commercial, but I don’t care because I’m happy that finally someone realized that Europeans also need a piece of mysterious bookish goodness :P.

Here’s a presentation of the Magic Chest by the owner herself!

20170119_234016

Magic Chest is a new subscription box, created by Klara, who has blogger about books and ordered countless boxes. She realized that there weren’t many boxes that shipped to Europe and if they did, the shipping costs were sometimes higher than the prices for the boxes. So she decided to create a box which would be for Europeans so they might have the same opportunities to get boxes as those from America.

Magic Chest wants to bring more adventures in our daily lives. That’s why every box contains a fantasy book and 3-5 bookish magical items which make the reading experience that much more exciting. It’s about the journey through unknown parts of the magical world, taking a break and discovering something new every month. 

logoThey’re already taking orders for the first box until February 15th. So check out their shop and start your adventure today!

I think I’ve got an e-book problem

I think I might’ve reached some kind of anti-eBook phase. Each time I’m starting to read one I instantly want to switch to paper or even audio! It feels strange and it messes up my review copies reading progress. I’m not happy :/

Did you ever feel something like that?

Normally I’d be happy with this state, but I have several ebooks I’d like to finish, especially “Hero” and I simply can’t do it. Continue reading “I think I’ve got an e-book problem”
