Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 covers of 2019

Hello Lovelies!

Here’s my weekly Top 5 Tuesday hosted by the wonderful Shannah @Bionic Bookworm Blog (go check out her blog; it’s amazing!). This week will feature (as the title suggets) my Top 5 covers of 2019. You know the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”? Well ,the people who say that have clearly never seen a to die for, gorgeous cover and that’s that. In all seriousness, I think covers are very important but the content is important too haha. Anyway, without further ado, let’s admire those beautiful covers.

UPDATE: I read the title wrong and posted some of my favorite covers ever and not of 2019 because I’m lame haha. Hope you’ll still enjoy.

WWW Wednesday – July 17th

Hello lovelies!

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! I have seen this tag around and thought the prompts were easy enough and a good way of keeping you updated with my former, present and next reads, so I decided to give it a try. This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words. Enjoy!

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

 

What are you currently reading?

38746485

This is kind of chaotic because I’m in a reading slump. I’m at a camp right now and I will have a lot of free time during the journey back home and during my stay, so I plan on continuing the audiobook of Becoming, narrated by Michelle Obama herself! I am loving it so far! It’s very inspirational and it’s nice to hear her insights on things and have her version of the events.

 

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading a book for school. It was Tropismes by Nathalie Sarraute. It’s in French and it was very weird and unconventional because there are no longer characters or plots, just thoughts and random actions. I surprisingly enjoyed it.  I also finished reading The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston which I adored!! It was sooo much fun! (You can see my review for it, here)

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

 

Since I have books to read for my next school year, I think I’m going to read all (five) of them, to get it out of the way and enjoy the books of my choice.

  • Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Defoe
  • The Collected Poems of William Wordsworth, William Wordsworth
  • Les Fables, La Fontaine
  • La Maison Tellier et autres contes de campagne, Guy de Maupassant 
  • La Nuit Remue, Henri Michaux

 

If you’re doing the tag, feel free to leave the link in the comments so I can check out your post!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Princess and The Fangirl by Ashley Poston – 5 stars Review (Spoiler-Free!)

Hello lovelies!

I’m back for a review and this time it’s for The Princess and The Fangirl by.  It is the second book in the “Once Upon a Con” series but you don’t have to have read Geekerella, although some characters are back in this one. This was a 5 stars read for me! Hope you’ll enjoy this review!

Summary: The Prin39725622._SY475_ce and the Pauper gets a modern makeover in this adorable, witty, and heartwarming young adult novel set in the Geekerella universe by national bestselling author Ashley Poston.
Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year’s ExcelsiCon isn’t her last, she’ll consider her career derailed.
When a case of mistaken identity throws look-a-likes Imogen and Jess together, they quickly become enemies. But when the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, and all signs point to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. That’s easier said than done when the girls step into each other’s shoes and discover new romantic possibilities, as well as the other side of intense fandom. As these “princesses” race to find the script-leaker, they must rescue themselves from their own expectations, and redefine what it means to live happily ever after. (Goodreads)

Rating: 5 glorious stars
