Secret Identities. Extraordinary Powers. She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies โ€” humans with extraordinary abilities โ€” who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice โ€” and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Staying Home: Books To Read During Quarantine

It’s crazy how in such short notice, everything changed in the world. More or less a month ago, when I was returning from Germany, there were already cases of the virus in Europe, and already some of them in Munich(and I was flying from there, so I was a bit worried). However, people weren’t paying enough attention to it. It took a while for the virus to reach Portugal, but once it did, it hit full force, andย I think it took us a long time to react. ๐Ÿ˜” In the middle of last week, it was announced emergency status in Portugal. Most places are now closed, there are a lot of rules and the police is outside making sure those are followed.

Basically, I’m staying at home, busy with my internship and homework. I don’t have to lose so much time in transportation anymore, so I’ve actually been having *a little bit more of* time and I guess many other people are at home too, having online classes. So I thought maybe I’d put together a few books that would be great to read during this Quarantine time!ย

The Netgalley Book Tag

Is everyone still using Netgalley? I used to love it and use it all the time, but to be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve last used it (I just kinda stopped being approved for the books I would like to read and also ran out of storage for the app lol). I haven’t been really interested in going back, but I admit sometimes I miss it! Maybe doing The Netgalley Book Tag today is a good way to remembering good times ๐Ÿ˜› Thank you Alex @ Whimsy Pages for tagging me! ^^

Liebster Blogger Award IV

Hello, everyone! Chaos has finally reached Portugal, everything is closing and people are buying things from the supermarkets like crazy. My classes have been suspended for an undetermined period of time and I have yet to know if I’ll keep coming to my internship or if I’ll work from home. All of my activities have been cancelled/suspended. While this sucks for several reasons, I’m trying to keep a positive attitude, and well, on the bright side, it means I probably have more time to read and blog (let’s see how my March wrap up will look like). For now, I’ll be answering the Liebster Blogger Award. Thank you Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books for tagging me โค

What I’ve Learnt From Studying Abroad

It’s been more or less one month since I’ve arrived back in Porto, and the truth is, I’ve been postponing writing this post. I don’t know, maybe because I just wanna go back, or probably because I’m still adjusting to my new routine back home. Free time? What even is that?

But well, I gotta do this. And it seems like a good way to wrap up such a good experience in my life. Obviously, not everything was perfect, but I believe I got a lot out of this. ๐Ÿ˜€
