Hello everyone! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been a bit inactive lately. I haven’t posted here or on instagram (which I should have), I haven’t caught up with other blog posts or comments and I rarely checked social media. That’s because this past week has been crazy, and I don’t expect the next two to be any different – with all the school work I’ve had to do, it’s a miracle I still find to read!
(For the records, I don’t. I just have to sacrifice my time for other things in order to find time to read.)
Today I’m sharing with you a post I wrote some time ago, and sadly, it’s a review of a book that I didn’t like that much. I haven’t read any mermaid book besides A Thousand Salt Kisses, and now, its sequel, A Thousand Salt Kisses Later – I actually found the titles a bit odd, but by reading this second book, I understood it. Unfortunately, they didn’t live up to my expectations.
Title: A Thousand Salt Kisses Later
(A Thousand Salt Kisses, #2)
Author: Josie Demuth
Publisher: Wise Ink
The spellbinding sequel to A Thousand Salt Kisses.
Four years ago, Crystal White fell in love with Llyr, a prince of the magical mer colony living off the coast of Starfish Island. For one summer, he enchanted her with stories of jeweled palaces and underwater gardens, but then he left, returning beneath the waves with her heart in tow.
Now, graduated and with no job in sight, Crystal is forced to go back to the island she thought she had left in the past. By the sea again, she realizes she is far from over her first love, and when an opportunity arises to contact the merfolk, Crystal can’t resist.
Once more with the mer, Crystal is forced to come to terms with the fact that Llyr has moved on, and also with her own magical secret that has endangered her life, his throne, and every mer kingdom. Working against all odds, she has to try to save the people she has come to love and—if she can—rekindle the romance of her first summer on Starfish Island.

Hello everyone!! 😀
Due to lack of time, today’s review is short, simple and perhaps even confusing, but I hope I manage to convince you to read this book, because it’s really really good!! ❤
Title: Queens of Geek
Author: Jen Wilde
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Number of pages: 288
When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.
Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Jason Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.
While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.
Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.

It has been too long since my last Top 5 Wednesday and I admit that I’ve missed writing them! I haven’t had much free time lately to do anything really, like reading or think of posts to write, so when I saw this theme I thought it was my opportunity!
I’m pretty sure most of you already know the titles I’m about to mention, whether because they’re quite popular or because I can’t stop talking about them 😂 But today I’m bringing you some Science Fiction and Fantasy recommendations aka my Top 5 of Science Fiction and Fantasy books (this is more of a personal list of favorites).

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!! ❤
Soooooo … I ran out of ideas. I still have a couple of things to post, sure, but I wanted to make something a little different today. The thing is: I’m not creative enough and I just didn’t have much time. So when I saw this tag at Word Wonders, I thought why not? It’s a way that you can get to know me better, and this looked quite fun to do!! Thanks Fadwa for saving my life 😛
The reason why I wanted to do something different today (and why I’m not posting a review now) is because it’s my birthday!! It’s weird to say it (
especially because I’m pre-writing haha), but yeah, 18 years ago, on March 4th, 1999, yours truly was born 😀 I’m really excited about the day I have ahead of me, because I get to spend it with my friends and family! I still can’t believe I’m 18, though. On my 15th birthday, I just wanted my 18th birthday to come fast, and now, here am I, and it’s weird!! Anyone else feeling the same?? 😛
But, anyway, let’s get to the important stuff:

Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren’t.
Now, ten years later, Ruby is single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There’s barely time for a trip to England for her little sister’s wedding. And there’s certainly not time to think about what it will be like to see Ethan again, who just so happens to be the best man.
But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can’t help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago. Because there is nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past . . .

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to attack my tags-that-need-to-be-done pile asap, and that’s why I’m doing three awards in one post!! Hopefully, this won’t get too long (

Happy Saturday, everyone! 😀
I recently finished A Mortal Song and really liked it ^^ And I know that some of you are interested in reading this book as well, and that’s why I feel the need to say that I don’t reveal major spoilers in my review, but I say more than what I wish I had known before I started it. I only knew it was a book about a girl who finds out she’s not the ‘chosen one’ and that it was based on Japanese mythology. Everything else came from the experience of reading the book, and every review on Goodreads seems to reveal the same as mine, so read at your own risk 🙂
Title: A Mortal Song

Sora’s life was full of magic–until she discovered it was all a lie.
Heir to Mt. Fuji’s spirit kingdom, Sora yearns to finally take on the sacred kami duties. But just as she confronts her parents to make a plea, a ghostly army invades the mountain. Barely escaping with her life, Sora follows her mother’s last instructions to a heart-wrenching discovery: she is a human changeling, raised as a decoy while her parents’ true daughter remained safe but unaware in modern-day Tokyo. Her powers were only borrowed, never her own. Now, with the world’s natural cycles falling into chaos and the ghosts plotting an even more deadly assault, it falls on her to train the unprepared kami princess.
As Sora struggles with her emerging human weaknesses and the draw of an unanticipated ally with secrets of his own, she vows to keep fighting for her loved ones and the world they once protected. But for one mortal girl to make a difference in this desperate war between the spirits, she may have to give up the only home she’s ever known.
