WARNING: I will write spoilers in orange, so don’t read that part if you’re spooked/terrified/frightened/scared by SPOILERS!

Witch
A Magical Character or Book.

 Sorina from Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody is special: she has the rare ability to create illusions made of flesh and bone and each with a unique personality.

Werewolf
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.

Even though I didn’t enjoy much The Hazel Wood, I recognise how I was chilled while reading this book. It’s dark and bothering in a creepy way.

35121240

Frankenstein
A Book that Truly Shocked You.

Whoever has read The Vegetarian by Kang Han will always tell you how this book is shocking and revealing. It tells the story of this woman who decides one day to become vegetarian in a prominently meat-eating society and it describes her path towards schizophrenia.

The Devil
A Dark, Evil Character.

Okay, I’m currently reading The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White and I think Victor perfectly fits the description. Science is good, if you use it to improve human life, but never, ever try to overcome its limits! He’s so scary and his character frightens me.

Grim Reaper
A Character that Should Never Have Died.

I was so heartbroken while reading about Holland’s death because I would have loved to read more about him! I think he deserved more space in the book and I wanted to read his redemption story.

Zombie
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.

Well, there are many books but the one which comes to my mind right now is Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi. It’s fast-paced and a Nigerian-inspired book. Plus, its sequel will be released in a few days so I’m particularly psyched for it!

 Gargoyle
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.

I have so many precious characters, you can’t ask me this!? At the top of my priority list I have Dineas from Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne because he was tortured and suffers of PTSD, while trying to protect his people.

29346927

Vampire
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.

When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore exhausted me. Its flowery language made it difficult to pay attention to the story, I wasn’t like that much the book so I had to DNF it. I hope to pick it up at a later time.

9781466873247

Ghost
A Book that Still Haunts You.

It’s impossible to narrow it down to one! You are asking the impossible. Darius the Great Is Not Okay is unforgettable in a good way. I can’t stop thinking about this book even though I’m reading other novels right now. And clearly my love for it goes to great lengths because I’m always talking about it!

37506437

Demon
A Book that Really Scared You.

I’m not easily scared by books so I can’t answer this one. And no, I haven’t read any Stephen King book and I’m not sorry because I don’t like much this genre. I ask for forgiveness.

Skeleton
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.

Emma Blue’s character irked me. She was immature throughout the book and always belittled her best friend for being a girl who liked make-up and did video tutorials.

38464193

Mummy
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman is one of my most favorite books of all time. It’s heartbreaking and I resonated very much with Rumi’s story.

29456598

Creepy Doll
A Cover too Scary to Look At.

I. Just. Like. Covers?! I don’t think I’ve ever come across a creepy cover yet. But I’ll let you know when I do.

The Monster Mash
It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween!

Blogger Bubble #6: Bookish Pet Peeves

Every reader has bookish pet peeves: sometimes we’re bothered by things that many people find normal, sometimes we do things that others think are unusual.

But let’s dive further into these pet peeves*:

  • When we dog-read pages: I would never, ever do this. I don’t know why but I get very upset when the perfect page of a book (or textbooks) gets bent over. I think it just ruins the unblemished appearance of the novel.

Blogger Bubble #5: 5 Books You Should Read for Pride Month

Hi, everyone!

I’m sorry I keep being MIA, but school ends this week and I hope I will have more free time to read books and write reviews. Anyway, since June is Pride Month I decided to recommend 5 LGBTQ+ books that I highly enjoyed, plus I have an announcement at the end of the post.

Song-of-Achilles-21

Obviously I couldn’t not put this book on the list. This book gave me all the feels, it even made me cry! It is heart-gripping and one of the most wonderful books I’ve read this year. You can read my review here.

LetsTalkAboutLove

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann is the story of this asexual girl who is trying to fit in a society where sex is considered the “normality”, though the story mainly focuses on the love story. You can read my review here.

Simon-vs-the-Homo-Sapien-Agenda

Honestly, I don’t think anyone has never heard of this book, especially after its movie’s release. It was such a fluffy read!  You can read my review here.

30237061

Amanda Foody is one of my most favorite authors and she recently released Ace of Shades, which I haven’t read yet. Many people forget that the main male character of Daughter of The Burning City is asexual. You can read my review here.

28245707

Queens of Geek is dual POV contemporary romance and one of the two narrators is bisexual. You can read my review here.

I wanted to say is that I created a Redbubble page and the first design I made is the following image. I know is nothing fancy, but I love it and the shop will help me with paying my exams for college. If you want to buy it, or know people who would like to snatch one for themselves, click here!

Happy Pride Month to everyone!

Be kind. Be pride.

Today I’m helping unveil the cover for Orbit—the new adult, speculative fiction debut novel by Leigh Hellman. Without further ado, here is the cover (designed by Najla Qamber):

Orbit [eBook]

Title: Orbit
Author: Leigh Hellman
Date: September 18th 2018
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Cover designer: Najla Qamber

Orbit [SM v2]

Synopsis

Ciaan Gennett isn’t green, despite the brand of light hair that betrays her heritage: an Earth mother. A mother she remembers but doesn’t know, who left one day and never came back. Ciaan’s as metal as her home planet—cold and hard and full of so many cracks she’s trying to ignore that she doesn’t have time to wonder about questions that don’t get answers.Read More »

One Lovely Blog Award

I wanted to thank Faguni @ Fanna for nominating me!  You should all check out her blog, especially her discussion posts because they’re super interesting.

R U L E S

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award
  • Share 7 facts or things about yourself
  • Nominate bloggers that you admire and inform the nominees

F A C T S

  1. I have a scar on my chin because when I was seven years old, I fell on the sidewalk while I was running.
  2. I study languages at high school, precisely English, Spanish and Chinese.
  3. Even though both my parents are Chinese, I can’s speak this language because I grew up in an Italian environment.
  4. I want to go to an US university, but since it’s so expensive I’m looking for scholarships (if you have any information, feel free to hit me up)
  5. I love reading manga and watching anime whenever I’m free.
  6. I’m currently considering opening a RedBubble account to sell artwork, though I’m not sure. It would be just a way to gain some money for university. What do you think?
  7. Even though I don’t feel a strong connection to China, I’m trying to learn more about it and my parents’ culture, especially after starting blogging because I didn’t know I needed to read more diverse books as I do now. I was and am insulted for being Chinese, but  now I’m pride because I face racism everyday and their hate doesn’t hurt me as much as they did.
