Who Am I? Tag

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 . . .

A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe

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 🙂

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.

I was tagged by the lovely Holly @ Nut Free Nerd to do the Stationary Book Tag. Even though I’m not crazy about stationary (at least I think I’m not, since I don’t own an incredibly huge collection) I really like it, especially colorful pens (but I do like to see pictures of huge collections of stationary – weird).

Thank you so much for tagging me Holly, now let’s get into the tag ^^

Rules:

  • Thank the creator: Sam @ RiverMooseReads, Thank you!
  • Answer the questions.
  • Add pictures! (If you want to)
  • Tag (about) 5 people.

A vivid and mesmerizing novel about the extraordinary woman who married and worked with one of the greatest scientists in history.

What secrets may have lurked in the shadows of Albert Einstein’s fame? His first wife, Mileva “Mitza” Marić, was more than the devoted mother of their three children—she was also a brilliant physicist in her own right, and her contributions to the special theory of relativity have been hotly debated for more than a century.

In 1896, the extraordinarily gifted Mileva is the only woman studying physics at an elite school in Zürich. There, she falls for charismatic fellow student Albert Einstein, who promises to treat her as an equal in both love and science. But as Albert’s fame grows, so too does Mileva’s worry that her light will be lost in her husband’s shadow forever.

A literary historical in the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Einstein reveals a complicated partnership that is as fascinating as it is troubling.

Wrap Up: Jan ’17

Hey there! 🙂 I can’t believe we’re already at the end of January, but I hope you guys had a good month. I know January was an exam month for a few of you, so let me know if you survived 😛

Today I’m writing and posting my wrap up! I’ve come to the conclusion that the way I used to write my previous wrap-ups didn’t quite work for me, because these posts take me a lot of time to edit and I just couldn’t put myself to update them every weekend. So I’m trying to make them simple and short, at the same time that I show the same content (and even more). So let me know what you think about it ^^
