Hello, everyone! Here’s a last-minute surprise Christmas Tag! 🎁🎄

I was planning on posting this yesterday, but life got in the way. I hope everyone had (or is still having) a nice Christmas! For now, I’ll leave you with The Bookish Naughty List Tag, that I got from Ness @ Watford Library 🙂

Interviewing Tânia Dias (author of ‘Broken – Despedaçada’)

Hello, there! Happy Friday, book nerds, what are you going to read during the weekend? I’m planning on reading a few chapters of O Ressurgir dos Eternos Titãs, but I’ll mostly focus on textbooks 😦 (that is, if I don’t end up procrastinating and watching Sherlock 😛 )

Today, I’m bringing you another interview – this time, I’m presenting you Tânia Dias, the author of Broken – Despedaçada. You might remember her from another interview I posted last year 😉

Also, if you want to check out my other interviews with Portuguese authors:

Interviewing Ana Cláudia Dâmaso (author of “Koldbrann”)

Interviewing Patrícia Ferreira (author of ‘Threat of an Angel’)

Interviewing Mariza Martins (author of ‘Brotherhood’)

Types of Memes Book Tag

Ah, how I missed sitting on my bed and writing a blog post to share with you! Unfortunately, time wasn’t on my side … But now I’m done with the semester (kinda, I still have exams in January to get through) and so I decided to get back to this. 🙂

I’m sharing a tag with you today! I must admit, I’m not big on memes (I love them, but I don’t think I’m as obsessed with them as everyone else seems to be :/ ). Nevertheless, I’m curious to see what I’ll make out of this – thank you, Azia @ The Uncharted Word, for tagging me 😀

Rules:

  • Pingback to the creator (Icebreaker694) ALWAYS!
  • Link back to the person who tagged you and thank them.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Provide a meme for each question (*different than mine)
  • Tag 7+ people, don’t kill the tag!

Wizard Knit: Book lover with a passion for crochet

Hello, book lovers! Today I finally decided to bring you something a little different. So, WizardKnit organized a rep search some months ago, and I was one of the lucky few that got a bookmark from them. At the time, I was only asked to post a picture and my unboxing, but I decided it would be a good idea to feature them on a post as well – since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought I could provide you with a few ideas.

Mads is the talented bookworm behind WizardKnit – a business of bookish crochet crafts, such as bookmarks, book covers and mug jackets. She shares her work on the Instagram page she created for the shop, and also on her bookstagram account.

Interviewing Mariza Martins (author of ‘Brotherhood’)

Hey, there! It’s finally the weekend again, what are you going to read? I’m currently reading O Ressurgir dos Eternos Titãs (book by a Portuguese author), but I’m not making much progress. I might have to leave it aside and focus on some uni reading I still have to do. :/

Anyway, today I’m here to share with you one more interview! It’s already the third out of five, so we’re getting there! And if you haven’t already, I invite you to check the previous posts …

Book Event: “The Mysteries of Writing”

Interviewing Ana Cláudia Dâmaso (author of “Koldbrann”)

Interviewing Patrícia Ferreira (author of ‘Threat of an Angel’)

Today I’m presenting you Mariza Martins, the author of both “Destino Celestial” and “Irmandade” (the latter being the book she was advertising in the event). I think you’d like getting to know her, since this interview turned out to be more interactive and feel more like a chat. 🙂

November Wrap Up

Honestly, time goes by so fast when you’re busy, but at the same time, I’m so done with this semester. I’d like to reevaluate how I’ve done, though, so – here’s my monthly wrap up! 😛

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ME?

Thankfully, my social life got a huge turn. I’ve been to parties, dinners and lunches with friends and classmates, and just hanging out with people in general. This has made me really happy, because even though some part of me is an introverted bookworm, I mostly am an extrovert and I like being around people. On the other hand, school work got more stressful. I have group projects we must deliver in the first weeks of December and they’re not close to being finished anytime soon. And I’m getting anxious day by day about the subjects I have to take an exam at the end of the semester (they’re two and they’re in the same week, of all things + works I have to deliver in the same week + English oral evaluation about a book I have yet to read). Every time I think about the pile of work waiting for me, there are only two things that come to my mind: procrastination and sleep. So you see where this is going 😅

Interviewing Patrícia Ferreira (author of ‘Threat of an Angel’)

Good morning, book lovers, and happy Saturday! The weekend has finally arrived – what are your plans? I already went out last Wednesday night, so I’m spending the day getting papers written and essays read, but tomorrow morning I’m going to attend a lunch with brother, his friends and their parents – it’s a thing from his old school. Now, though, I’m focusing all my thoughts on this post. I apologize for not being able to mix my posts a little, but uni has taken all the little free time I have and it’s not possible for me to post twice a week anymore. So I guess you’re stuck with another interview – but Patrícia is a lovely girl and I’m sure you’ll like to meet her. 🙂

If you have no idea of what interview I’m talking about, you might want to check the following posts:

Book Event: “The Mysteries of Writing”

Interviewing Ana Cláudia Dâmaso (author of “Koldbrann”)

And now it’s time for the interview! Patrícia Ferreira is the author of “Ameaça de um Anjo“.

Interviewing Ana Cláudia Dâmaso (author of “Koldbrann”)

Hello, book nerds! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! 😀

Today I’m bringing you the very first of the five interviews I have to share with you. If you haven’t heard of these before, I suggest you check out this post, where I talked about a bookish event I attended. I had the opportunity of interviewing the five authors, and they’re all wonderful girls who have something to share with the world, – something I want to help them with! Here, you can expect to learn more about their books, their writing stories and how literature is seen in my country, Portugal. ^^

The first author you’re meeting is … Ana Cláudia Dâmaso, the author of both “Koldbrann – Parte 1 – Rebeldes” and its sequel “Koldbrann – Parte 2 – Desleais”.

Artemis by Andy Weir

I did it! I was so afraid I wouldn’t make it, but I did finish this book before the release date, and that’s something to be proud of with my current schedule – let’s not bring up the fact that I had to put school work aside to accomplish this, please.

But, oh my – this was so worth it! I’m sick of reading textbooks, and this was an awesome break!

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Book Event: “The Mysteries of Writing”

Hello, book nerds! I have a very exciting post to share with you! 😀

Last Sunday, on the 5th of November, I was able to attend a bookish event in my city. We don’t get much of these, especially because I don’t live in the capital, so of course I had to enjoy it at the maximum! ^^

It wasn’t anything fancy, but I spent a lovely afternoon there. The event took place at CASADABOAVISTA – Café Literário (Book Café), which is a beautiful building from the XX century, filled with vintage furniture and a cosy atmosphere. I regret not spending more time there other than to attend events, because there’s also a bar and you can enjoy any drink you’d like while reading a book.
