Top 5 Wednesday – Top SFF Books on Your TBR

imgresOh look, another Top 5 Wednesday! It’s been two months since I did one of these and there are plenty books to list on this one, but as usual – five is the limit (more or less). And since I want to actually stay within the limit, I’ll only mention Science Fiction books because my list of these is way shorter than Fantasy :D.

It’s about time I’ve read this one – a sequel to the book I’ve read years ago and really enjoyed. It has aliens, some romance and thrilling adventure (I hope). Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday – Top SFF Books on Your TBR”

Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Releases You Are Excited For

I could not be vegetarian and vegan sounds even more horrific. I love animals, but there are boundaries… like food 😛 I love food. I just had this nice breakfast with boiled eggs, onions and bacon stripes and I’m happy :D. It was also horrifically caloric, but with the temperatures between -15°C and -20°C lately I feel inclined to eat more 😛 and I really don’t care. Did I mention I love food? Now I only need some coffee and I can start working.

That was the random thought for today brought to you by calories 😛

Top 5 WednesdayAnyway, it was supposed to be a Top 5 Wednesday post, so let’s get to it :P. Actually, I almost skipped this Wednesday as I don’t normally track recent releases other than my ARC’s, but I’m using it as an excuse to publish my random food thoughts :P. Yes, I’m kind of in a good mood and full of energy… for now. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Releases You Are Excited For”

2016’s goodies – the books I fell in love with

Looking back at my favorite reads from this year I have to say I’m rather surprised. Most of the books on that special shelf were from Fantasy genre and now I’ve got surprisingly many Sci-Fi novels. And it seems I’ve discovered a new love for cozy mysteries, especially by one author :D.

I wanted to make this list a “top-something” list (and surprisingly I’ve got 10 books to present, so it might’ve worked), but I can’t decide on the order, so instead I’ll just show off the few super-awesome books that really grabbed me this year and only this year – no re-reads.

A bit of a warning – this post is all about positive thoughts! There will be no whining, complaining, etc 😉

An adorable and lovely graphic novel without words and yet with a complete story and cute characters. I still want plushies of both characters! I should learn to sew… Continue reading “2016’s goodies – the books I fell in love with”

Two weeks of free audio books had gone by…

Yes, it’s already been two weeks and I haven’t even listened to half of the books I want, even though I’m rather happy with my progress. I don’t think I’ll gather myself to write full reviews of these books, but I think I could write few sentences about them.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-empty-icon

dark-matterA curious book that I was afraid to pick up because of all the fans out there that would kick my ass if I didn’t like it :P. Well… probably not, but you know how it is, right?

Anyway, It was very good. I loved the idea and this story had plenty of thrilling moments, parts that made me wonder “what if” that I simply can’t ignore it. So why not five stars? Maybe it was the writing style? Maybe the events annoyed me a bit a few times, but I can still say this book is worth reading and I could recommend it to sci-fi fans and to those who ever wondered what might’ve happened.
