Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice.

#SeptemberReadingClub TBR

Hello, everyone!

Now, if you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember a title similar to this one, as I posted my TBR for the same marathon around this time last year. The #SeptemberReadingClub is a marathon created by Cat from the Portuguese booktube channel CatintheNet, and it’s divided into three categories: literature, tv shows and movies. It’s both the second edition of this marathon and my second time joining, as I had lots of fun last year, and I’m very excited for it to start!

The marathon will start next Friday, the 1st of September, and it ends one week after, on the 8th. Here’s what I’ll be doing (or trying to) during that time:

As a community development worker, Faith was quite familiar with heartbreak and recovery after all the time she spent on disaster relief missions. So when her five-year relationship ends right before she left for a mission trip to a typhoon-stricken town in Iloilo, she tries not to make a big deal out of it. How can she be broken up about a breakup when she’s with people who literally lost everything?

But now that she’s back, all Faith wants is for her life to go back to normal and have people stop looking at her with pity. Never mind that she still has a lot of questions about the breakup, or that she feels a tiny ache every time her ex comes up in conversations. She’s okay now, and happily distracted by Nico Tamayo, the attractive new guy at work.

With new possibilities in the horizon, Faith thinks she is well on her way to moving on. But when her past comes calling back to her, will all the good things in her present be enough to keep her on the path? Or will she finally learn that there was more to heartbreak and recovery than what she knows?

I won a digital copy of this book in a giveaway.

The weather has been great here lately, but today it’s grey outside. It doesn’t look like Summer at all, which reminds me we’re almost done with August.

However, Uni also starts in September, and I’m both terrified and excited for that! 😛

Today I’m posting The Summer Book Tag, to enjoy the last days xD Thank you, Mariana @ paperbackwriter, for tagging me ❤

Elena Cam thought she didn’t fit in Angels; always felt like a stranger even in her own body. That was until she was saved by an stranger who completely changed her life.

Tattoos and powers started to appear, that affected her life and her friends’, Bella, and the twins, Landon and Justin.

Something that started as strange and fantastic at the same time soon was being threatened by an unknown figure, who stalked her. Was the same one who saved her ready to kill her? Why would he bother to save her to stalk her after?

When she found out she was Nephilim, half angel, half human, she started to grow suspicious of Ethan Fallen, who had moved to Angels at the same time she had transformed. Ethan was mysterious, and even though she didn’t trust him, she was attracted to him. When Elena found out she was part of a old prophecy, she has to decide whether she’s willing to sacrifice her life and her friends in order to catch whoever is threatening her.

received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Collab with The Crazy Reader | Lyrics That Hit Me In The Feels – “Tomorrow” (BTS)

Hey, everyone! Today I have a post that is a little different than usual. I’m spending the week at a camping park my family goes to every year and even though today is the day I come back, I didn’t have time to plan a post and so I’m very grateful I had this one.

You know my blog is usually about books and book-related things, but today is going to be about music. Or, better saying, lyrics. My awesome friend Tinka @ The Crazy Reader organised this project called “Lyrics That Hit Me In The Feels” and, as a way to support her, I sent her my own post. If you want to see which song I chose, don’t forget to check out her blog 😉 (or keep reading, Tinka spoiled it 😂)

And what I’m about to show you is her own choice. Enjoy! 😀
