Two posts about Disney in one week, how awesome is that? And today’s post is dedicated to one of our favourite bookworms! ^^ Thank you, Holly @ Nut Free Nerd, for tagging me for the Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Good morning, everyone! I should have posted this review yesterday, but here’s a quick explanation of why I didn’t: I got my results from Uni and, unfortunately, I didn’t get in in my first choice of course. I panicked, and I stayed up late trying to think of alternatives, because I really, really wanted to study Applied Languages. I got into Languages, Literature and Cultures instead, so I still got into Uni, but I’m going to research how to figure this out. If I can’t, I’ll have to learn how to be as excited for my second choice as I was for my first! 😛

This whole mess means that you’ll get two posts today, and that I’ll probably not be very active in the next few days (I guess I have a lot of paperwork to fill xD)!

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Sunshine Blogger Award IV

I. am. a. terrible. blogger! As you probably know, because I’ve mentioned that a million times before, I’ve been catching up on Tags and Awards in the past two months. I had a huge pile that I’d been saving for later because there was no way I could focus on that with school going on. And the Sunshine Blogger Award is one of those posts. Now that I went back to check the questions, I saw that Green @ Green Onion Blog had tagged me on March 4th (on my birthday even, great timing! 😛 ) and Sofia @ Bookish Wanderess had tagged me on March 15th. Six months later, here am I!! Sorry for the delay 😦 But thank you both so much for tagging me 😀

Now, the Sunshine Blogger Award isn’t new for me, but here’s the list of rules:

  1. Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions

What Cats Do Book Tag

I pretty much love all kinds of animals. Especially the fluffy ones. And I’m definitely a cat kind of person, so I’m very excited to start answering this tag. Thank you so much Joana @ bookneeders, for tagging me for the What Cats Do Book Tag and for showing your Darius ❤ And thank you Kate @ meltingpotsandothercalamities for creating this tag!!

My cat has been living with us for around five … or is six? … years. His full name is Bolinha de Neve, which means Little Ball of Snow, but he only answers to the name Bolinha ( = Little Ball). Even though it’s not a very creative name, I have to take the blame – I came up with it. He literally looked like a little ball of snow, okay? xD

August Wrap-Up

It seems that the weather decided to collaborate with me today. Just as a way to mark the end of Summer, it’s grey outside, and it’s cold enough for me to be tucked into my warm bed while I’m writing this post ^^

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ME?

I don’t remember August passing by so quickly, but I’m so stressed out about all things Uni-related that I didn’t even notice. However, looking back, I had a nice month. I signed up for driving lessons, I spent a week discovering new places in my city, and I went camping with my mom’s side of the family, as I do every year. I also already went shopping for school supplies, which makes me realize school is closer than ever. xD
