Long time no see! With the lockdown and confinement, I have a lot of time on my hands and I hope I’ll be able to be more active here. Yesterday I finished reading Winter by Marissa Meyer and it is the perfect opportunity to review the whole series!
If there is one thing you have to know about me is that I am a sucker for fairytale retellings; I would only read them if I could! This is why I loved this series so much. It was so well executed, smart, modern and even had a futuristic side to it. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend you do! And there are gorgeous new covers out so you should definitely check them out.
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 series I need to finish. I’m so excited by this week’s theme! I hope it will help me finally fisnish these series.
Just like the month of August, my summer holidays are coming to an end, and I’m going back to school tomorrow. I thought it would be fun to recap everything I liked, read and watched this summer! Here it goes:
My mother offered to buy me a book to cheer me up from my exams results. I always had an eye on this book but never decided to actually purchase it, until now.
