Welcome to 2017 everybody, and to my first post of the year all about last year!! In todays post we’ll be looking at what I read in the last two months, my favourite and recommendations of the year and what’s on my reading list for the year.

 

In no particular order here are my favourite reads of 2016, all of which I would highly recommend. Not pictured is here is the fairy tale retelling series by Jackson Pearce as a friend is currently borrowing them.

 

 

  • The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford Smith, although not a long book it’s a cute story of filled with stunning illustrations.
  • The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, I have never enjoyed a series so much!! A wonderful fairytale retelling, definitely a winner. Would also recommend the novellas too.
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, this was probably one of the first ‘chosen one’ series I’ve read since Harry Potter. What I loved, aside from the great story, was the fact the romantic aspect wasn’t the driving force of this. Yes it was the but had to take a backseat to more important things.
  • The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave, this was a nice little read about a girls journey through her forbidden home where myth and reality become one.
  • Fairest by Serena Valentino, I didn’t realise how long this book had been sat on my list and om glad I’ve finally read it. This was such a great portrayal of the Evil Queen, everything her past to her present. The second book is based Beauty and the Beast, and the third to be released is about Ursula.
  • Harry Potter by J.K Rowling, I’ve loved rediscovering this series, so much went over my head as a child. I’ve discovered a whole new love for this wizarding world.

 

So that was last year, since November I’ve been thinking about what I want to read in 2017. I want a balance between books I haven’t read in forever, books that have been on my list since the dawn of time and have forgotten about and books that are new and I’m itching to read. To see what’s made it onto my list check out shelf on either Goodreads or Booklikes.

Hi All!

Thank you so much for our last meeting! There were many new people and I've talked to some of you after the meeting. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did!

...
As promised, here is ´The Door´, a short film based on one part of the book. Enjoy!

 

As for our next meeting, it will be dedicating to Zelda Fitzgerald and her ´Save me the Waltz´. I've found out there is a problem with book delivery at the library, so it's still not available (hovewer our next two books, for April and May, are already there!). So if you want to have the physical copy I can refer you to amazon.es:

http://www.amazon.es/Save-Me-Waltz-…/…/ref=sr_1_1_twi_pap_1…

As always, if you have any problems with the digital copy, send me a message here or an email.

 

I hope to see you all in March!

The Lost Art of Mixing - Erica Bauermeister
The Naughty Girls Book Club - Sophie Hart
A Cup of Friendship - Deborah Rodriguez
The End of Your Life Book Club - Will Schwalbe

LOL I know y'all are probably like "what. the.." Wasn't sure what to call this collection of books except that they all involve people from all different kinds of life situations coming together in one location, or through one event, and banding together into a little club of sorts.

Naturally, the song clip is from "In Da Club" by 50 Cent :-)

Currently reading -- Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

 

So I'm now playing catch-up with my tumblr book club's horror novel reading list! I'm pretty excited about this one, even though, as you may have caught on, horror novels are not usually my cup of tea. I guess it's about vampires? But not like the Twilight or Vampire Diaries vampires. I've never read a book where the vampires are actually scary so this should be an interesting experience! 

 

Have any of you read this before or seen the movie? Looks pretty creepy!
