Today, I’m revealing the cover and story line-up for BRAVE NEW GIRLS: TALES OF HEROINES WHO HACK, coming July 2018! This YA sci-fi anthology (edited by sci-fi authors Paige Daniels and Mary Fan) features stories about girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)… Girls who hack not just computers, but whatever puzzles come their way, using their smarts to save the day. It’s got sci-fi mysteries, cyberpunk, space adventures, and more! Proceeds from sales of the anthology will be donated to the Society of Women Engineers scholarship fund.Read More »
I’m sorry I haven’t been much active the last two weeks, but it was the period of exams and I’m still studying for some subjects. I hope I will be able to post all the reviews of the books I’ve read until now by mid-February.
You all know that I participated to the Mental Health Book Bingo and I haven’t read as much books as I hoped. Anyway, here’s the list of the books I read for the bingo. Read More »
You know when you’re talking with another bookworm and they bring up their opinion about the latest book released by a famous author? And you have never read any of their works?
This is me most of the time.
When it regards the publishing and writing world, almost everyone knows about those authors people keep raving about, it’s almost impossible you’ve never heard of them. Authors like Sarah J. Maas or V.E. Schwab whom I’ve read just because bloggers and bookstagrammers kept recommending them. And while I admit I didn’t end up enjoying their books as much as I thought I would, I recognise why many people loved them.

Though I know I’m a little late, but here’s my TBR for the Mental Health Book Bingo created by What The Log Had To Say to increase people’s awareness of mental illnesses.
I think it’s important when we read books that deal not only with mental health, but also with racism, LGBTQ+ and other things to keep our mind open to how different is this world and to shatter the stigmas surrounding mental illnesses.
Along with the books, I will indicate the prompts I will cross with them, hoping I will manage to read all of these and more if I have time because, as they say, the more the merrier! I already read and reviewed The Vegetarian by Han Kang, but I will include it anyway.

Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall: MC with +2 MI’s; Agoraphobia rep (ownvoices)

Happy New Year to everyone!
I hope 2018 will reserve for each one of you a year full of happiness, possibilities, love and more reading time.
For the first day of the year, I will share with you some goals I set for this blog and for myself, that I want to do all of them before the end of 2018:
- Read 150 books and more than half of them will be #ownvoices and diverse books;
- Writing more Blogger Bubbles;
- Participate in more challenges;
- Be more engaged in the blogging community;
- Take more beautiful photos on my Bookstagram account which I never talked to you about, you can follow me here.
And before I forget, to be more motivated to write discussion posts, I decided to join the 2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!
If you want to participate, you can sign-up here. I thought it was a wonderful idea!
What do you think of this list? Anything I should add? Let me know in the comments…
Not everyone knows about my love for Korean dramas. And since writing a review can be quite exhausting, I decided to write a post a little different. There are many people who share my love for K dramas and I thought to write a post in which I recommended some series I’ve watched in 2017 and that I absolutely loved.
Kathy from Books & Munches is hosting a challenge for December: the Diverse December.
In this month, all the participants will read as many diverse books as we can or that we own.
Obviously I couldn’t pass this chance to read more #ownvoices and diverse books, you know how much I care about them. So, here’s a list of some of the books I will try to read Read More »
