April 2017 tbr

Hello everyone ! It’s more than time for me to share my April TBR ! I plan on reading 5 books this month ! 3 physical books and 2 e books !

  • The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. It’s a reread. I’ve read it the year it was released but I need to refresh my mind before reading the sequels. And it will alow me to write a proper review !
  • La Faucheuse or Scythe by Neal Shusterman. I heard so many amazing things about that book !
  • A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas. What can I say ? Now that I’ve read The Lunar Chronicles I want to read more retellings !

e books :

  • The Heartbeat Hypothesis by Lindsey Frydman
  • The Isle Of Brigadoon by J. S. Fields.

 

That’s it ! What are you planning on reading this month ?

 

MY DREAM CRATE

my dream crate

Hello lovelies !

A while ago I heard about a project by Loot Crate where you can imagine your own dream box. Loot Crate is a geek and gift subscription box so I thought it would be funny to make a post about my dream crate….

so I thought it would be funny to make a post about my dream crate ! And guys, I have to confess, it’s hard to narrow it to just ONE box. But I had to make a choice, obviously. The box needs to contain a book, of course ! And since there’s this highly anticipated movie that just came out, and that it’s a book adaptation… Here it is !
At this point I think you all have guessed the theme but I’ll say it anyway  : Beauty And The Beast.

First thing first, since I’m a HUGE book lover (as if you’re not aware of this by now hahaha), this box needs to contain a book.

The Beauty And The Beast

This book is a special edition by Harper Collins with amazing illustrations inside. It would totally be a perfect choice for this dream box, right ?!

But it also needs goodies !

Tale As Old As TimeWhat would be a dream box without a candle ?! This is a Meraki Candle inspired by The Beauty And The Beast ! The picture is from her etsy store.
You can find it here. Her shop is full of amazing candles !
I can totally picture myself reading the book, wrapped in a comfy blanket while this candle is burning !

A funko pop is a must in a dream box ! I featured only these three but there are other ones available and all of them are cute and awesome !

tale as old as time bookmark

Alright ! This is the last item !
A wooden bookmark ! Seriously guys look at how pretty it is !

I really need this woodmark in my life haha !

It’s from Ink & Wonder shop !
This is her photo too. Her work is amazing !

That’s it ! My dream box… well my dream box of the moment ! I bet it would be different every month !

BOOKISH MERCH HAUL

Bookish Merch Haul

Hello lovelies ! Today I’m gonna show you my latest bookish purchases ! I bought them on Society6 ! I am so happy with them !

As you can see I got a totebag ! I got it from Bookworm Boutique ! I also got a mug and pillow from Evie Seo. I’ve been eyeing this mug for months now ! Since I read the Six Of Crows duology ! I loved these two books so much !
The pillow looks nice and comfy on my bed but it’s also useful as a prop for my bookstagram pictures !
You can also see my bookstagram mug on the latest picture ! It was my very first purchase on society6, last year.

What about you ? Do you own bookish merch ?

Caraval by Stephanie Parker. This one is already out and I really need to buy it ASAP ! The hype is crazy and I heard so many AMAZING things about it !
A Conjuring Of Light by V.E. Schwab is the final book in the Shades Of Light trilogy. I LOVED the two first books !

Plus some books that don’t have a cover yet :

  • The final book in the Throne Of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I’m always one book behind, because I’m waiting for the US paperback to be published…

That’s it ! What are your most anticipated releases for this year ?

 

 

MY BOOKISH RESOLUTIONS FOR 2017

bookish-resolutions-2017

Hello everyone ! I was planning on posting this way earlier this month but hmm… it obviously didn’t happened !
I’m not someone who likes to take good resolutions, usually. But at the end of 2016 I found myself thinking about things I wanted to change on my blog, on my bookstagram, on my reading habits. Sooo… without further ado, here are my bookish resolutions for 2017 !

  • I want to improve my posts’ design. I’m not 100% happy with how they currently are. I want to find a way to make them neater, clearer, and prettier. I’m learning so if you have any tips… especially concerning Freepik !
  • I want to find back my blogging schedule. Until mid October, I was posting around 3 times per week. Since I bought my apartment and started working at two different places, I barely manage to post twice a week. Working 48h per week is really not helping. Fortunately this will change mid February !
  • I also want to improve my bookstagram pictures. By that I mean putting more effort. Which won’t be an effort because I’m really enjoying it. I just need to dedicate more time to taking photos !
  • I want to create a Facebook page. This idea has been nagging me for months now !!
  • Another thing I want to change is quite simple. I spend a lot of time on FB, reading crapping links and wasting a lot of time that I could spend reading, writing posts, reviews etc !

And that’s it ! For most of these, I’ll have to wait mid February but let me tell you, it’s worth it ! Changing job (I’m quitting my old one, that’s why I’m currently working at two places) is the best thing that could have happened to me.
