The Sims Book Tag

TAG TIME!! 😀

Hello, everyone, and happy Wednesday! Two more days before we can finally have fun on the weekend. Any plans?

Today I’m posting The Sims Book Tag! Thanks, Azia @ The Uncharted Word for tagging me ❤ Everyone go check out her blog and I’M SO SORRY AZIA I didn’t comment on it back when you posted it but exams were keeping me busy (and mad!).

I have to admit I was never really into Sims. I mean, I remember playing it on a very, very old phone of mine, and maybe on a friend’s computer, but I never obsessed with it and I feel I skipped an important part of my childhood 😂 Looking back, however, I am glad I didn’t. I never had much patience to change my character’s appearance, and never knew exactly how to play! 😛

#Crashathon Wrap Up

Hello, everyone! Tell me things! How have you all been?

I am now overwhelmed again, just like when I first came back after exams. I have so much to catch up with, from tv shows to blog posts. I’m so glad this won’t happen again anytime soon, or so I hope.

Today I’m sharing with you how my week of reading for the #crashathon went. #Crashathon is a marathon organised by Ana @ thebooktarian, a Portuguese blogger/booktuber. I was looking forward to this week, because I had books to fit in the categories, and I really really needed to read. However, the week didn’t go as I planned.

Ponto Sem Retorno by Gabriela Simões

the picture above belongs to @garotaperdidanoslivros 

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday. I probably won’t be very active during the next few days because I got my grades back on Thursday and I do have to repeat two of my exams next week, and also because I’ve joined readbyzoe’s 24h reading marathon and thebooktarian’s #crashathon. I’ll give you an update of those marathons sometime during next week! ^^

For now, I’ll leave you my review of Ponto Sem Retorno by Gabriela Simões. This is a book by an author from my country, and as it is not translated, I don’t think you’d be very interested. I needed, however, to write this in order to let my thoughts flow. This is more of a rant than anything else, to be honest.

translated from Goodreads

Giselle Levy is a half-witch and she lives isolated from the rest of the world, with her grandpa, hidden from the king’s eyes. She’s careful and astute; however, trying to survive, she’s caught and blackmailed by one of the Princes of Kendrad, Cristian, who promises not to turn her in, if she agrees to work at the palace. Struggling, she puts her identity in danger and starts working at the palace, where she has to deal with the seduction attempts of Prince Cristian, the mysterious glances of Prince Eli, the secret meetings with her best friend Rylan, and an inhuman king who keeps dark secrets. Giselle lives in a constant uncertainty and torment of being discovered; bitter for not being free, she finds a mysterious room with a powerful enchantment that could change everything. Assertive, intelligent and defensive, she’ll face a decision that will change her life forever and the idea she has of herself.

I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Totally Should Have Tag

Look who’s being responsible and is going through her pile of undone tags 😛 And after this, I’ll read posts that I’ve missed during the past days. Who am I and why am I feeling so productive today? 😂

Anyway, the Totally Should Have Tag is one that I used to see so much (but so so much) here, but never got around to do it, even though I was tagged by Joana @ Bookneeders almost four months ago. (oops?). Well, here it is at last! Let’s get started!

The world has evolved. Fairies exist and have the power to heal. Vampires are real and aren’t to be trusted. Wolves have revealed their ability to shift into human form.

Will Jaxon is both man and wolf. He is the Alpha of his community’s Wolf Force, the agency that provides security and protection for all mankind. In addition to his role as the head of his pack, Will has been working undercover to infiltrate an illegal drug organization that is trafficking women. When Will is coerced to take the lead in an abduction, he agrees in order to preserve his cover. But one look into the terrified, green eyes of the woman he attacks, leaves him powerless to continue.

As Rayne Daniels stares into the face of the man restraining her, she sees a shift, for a fraction of a second he changes and his true form is revealed. She realizes he is a wolf, a protector, and almost before she knows what is happening, he releases her. Rayne escapes physically, but emotionally she continues to be haunted, held prisoner by the trauma of that night.

When Will discovers that members of the organization are still looking for Rayne, his entire world is altered. Now, Will spends his days undercover and every other free moment keeping Rayne safe, because her survival has become critical to him in a way that he cannot explain.

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hey, everyone! I almost missed this week’s schedule, because I’m still quite not used to blogging again, and I completely forgot I used to post a tag on Wednesdays (??). Thanks to Joana @ bookneeders, I didn’t. She posted today the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag, which is a tag I love reading, and she also tagged me, so I’m very excited to share it with you! 😀

Before the questions, I’ll be telling you how I’m doing on my reading challenges (they’re not many and I’m still failing):

  • Goodreads Reading Challenge – I’ve read 30 out of 50 books (3 were DNFs, tho, so don’t really count)
  • Beat the Backlist – hmmmm, right. I’m pretty sure I’m doing fine, the problem is that I forgot to update the info on the website … and I haven’t done such in the last three months.

April, May & June Wrap Up

Hey, strangers! I’m finally back to blogging and I couldn’t be happier. Now I have a lot to catch up with (don’t even get me started on the tags I have to write 😂) but I’m working on it. Meanwhile, I realised my last wrap up was back in March, so today I’m here to update you all on the last three months 🙂

It’s good to be back!! ^^

Hello, everyone!

Please don’t kill me!! Hi, I know that it’s been weeks … maybe two months, back when I used to update often. I kind of drifted into an unwanted hiatus. What I had in mind was scheduling a lot of posts, but then the last term of high school hit me hard and bye bye time! I’m really sad I couldn’t manage my free time better, because I’ve missed my blog and I’ve missed you, and now I’m just afraid I don’t know how to write these anymore 😂

BUT now I’m free!! Not completely free, though, I’m pretty sure I’ll have to attend the 2nd phase of exams in July; however, I’m free for now. I can write, post, talk with you … and I have so much to catch up with!! I’ll probably use your monthly wrap ups to read most of the posts I’ve missed.

This post was just an ‘hello’, but I’m really excited to be here again! So, let’s chat! What have you been up to lately? ^^

I’ll delete this post later.

Can an online romance survive in real life?

Internet sensation Madison Nakama has it all! Her pop-culture rewatch site has a massive following, and fans across the world wait on her every post and tweet. Even Madi’s dismal romantic life seems ready to take off as Laurent, a fellow geek (and unfairly HOT French exchange student!) starts flirting with her in the comments section of her blog. But Laurent’s not the only one watching for Madi’s replies.

Internet fame has a price, and their online romance sparks the unwanted attention of a troll. When Madi’s “real life” hits a rough patch, she feels her whole world crumbling. With Laurent’s support, can Madi rally her friends across the globe to beat the troll, or will he succeed in driving her away from everything—and everyone—she loves?

Here is a YA contemporary romance for the iGeneration from Danika Stone, author of All the Feels!
