Dear reader,

Here we go back with my seasonal recommendations! During summer I wrote three recommendations posts, one with contemporary books, another one with fantasy novels and a last one with classics. I decided to go with moods for Autumn as we all have a different one at this time of the year: those who want to get cosy, those who want to get spooked and those who want to study all day every day.

Without further ado, here are three books to read this Autumn if you are in a cosy mood!

5 books I loved with a character from the LGBTQIA+ community 🌈

Dear reader,

June is Pride Month, so it made sense that I would have to write a little bookish blog post related to it!

Though I do not identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community (I am demisexual/asexual and though there are a lot of thoughts on our place in the community I never felt as if I belonged to it) I still believe it’s important to talk about it, especially during June.

Last year I let people from the community talks for themselves and recommend some books to which they identify. This year I decided to share with you all five books I loved which has a character from the LGBTQIA+ community.

My 5 last 5 stars reads of 2019

Dear reader,

I haven’t found many new all time favourites this year so far, but I did read some amazing books to which I still gave 5 stars on Goodreads! I used to be the type of person who would give 5 stars to pretty much all the books but I’m now more picky when it comes to it. I guess growing makes me being more judgmental while reading (that, and my literary studies).

That’s why I thought it’ll be fun to present to you all the last 5 books I gave 5 stars to!

The plot of the first book in the Empirium series, Furyborn

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable—until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world—and of each other.

Five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Dear reader,

If you don’t know, Lady Midnight is my favourite book of whole time. Ever since I first read it for the first time in January of 2017 I then read it five more times. Did I ever get bored of it? Absolutely not.

As this book is a part of the very long Shadowhunters Chronicles I have to say that you don’t have to read the Mortal Instruments nor the Infernal Devices series in order to understand it. Though if you skip those series you will end up being spoiled while reading Lady Midnight, but you do you. If you’re curious to know how to read the series I actually filmed a video on IGTV to present you different ways to do so.

Today I wanted to share with you five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, no matter if you’re a fan or not of the Shadowhunters Chronicles. Ready? Let’s go.

Review | Again, but Better by Christine Riccio

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

The plot

Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?

Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!

Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.
