Down the TBR Hole I

dttbrh

Most of you probably know this feeling, you’re Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when your scrolling through your list, you realise that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. 

Well, that’s going to change

Books That Have Caught My Eye

There are a few books that have caught my attention this last month that I am excited to get my hands on and read. I have heard great things about them from people have been raving on about them all over the internet! So, to keep this post short and sweet, here are three books that are on my list or TBR wishlist.

The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

37905907

“When Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he’s left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he’s been kidnapped. Then Luke’s older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.

Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened–even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke’s mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.”

Book Review: Altered Carbon by Takeshi Kovacs

40792913“Four hundred years from now mankind is strung out across a region of interstellar space inherited from an ancient civilization discovered on Mars. The colonies are linked together by the occasional sublight colony ship voyages and hyperspatial data-casting. Human consciousness is digitally freighted between the stars and downloaded into bodies as a matter of course.

But some things never change. So when ex-envoy, now-convict Takeshi Kovacs has his consciousness and skills downloaded into the body of a nicotine-addicted ex-thug and presented with a catch-22 offer, he really shouldn’t be surprised. Contracted by a billionaire to discover who murdered his last body, Kovacs is drawn into a terrifying conspiracy that stretches across known space and to the very top of society.”

PROS & CONS of Physical and Digital Books

An age-old debate: What kind of book is better, Physical or Electronic?

For a while now readers have been divided into two groups, those who read physical books and those who read on a Kindle. With the introduction of the Kindle, many people have stopped purchasing physical books from bookstores for quite a few valid reasons. As a reader who utilises both physical and Ebooks, I think that I can speak for both sides of the debate and provide you with a great starting point if you are thinking about buying yourself a kindle in the future. As the title of this posts suggests I will be discussing the pros and cons of reading both physical and Ebooks.

Disclaimer: There is no right or wrong way to read a book, whether it be physical or electronic. I am in no way bashing the medium that a reader chooses to engage with.

9781408890325

 

“On the darkest night, the stars still shine 

Feyre’s first winter Solstice as High Lady is drawing near. With it will come a hard-earned rest from the work she, Rhyse and their friends have done to rebuild the Night Court and the vastly changed world beyond. Yet the festive atmosphere can’t keep shadows from looming. Even as her own heart heals, she finds that those dearest to her have wounds that go deeper than she knew.

And the scars of the past will tough her court in times to come”

How my Blog Began:

Going off my very first post on this blog I officially started in August of 2015. This whole blogging thing was something that I had been considering doing for a while as I was very into the whole idea of becoming a book blogger or YouTuber. I wanted to create something to express my love for reading and gain some friends from it and found that WordPress was a wonderful platform to do this on since I didn’t need to show my face like you would have to in YouTube videos. I started out this blog with a lot of nerves, and my first ever blog post did okay which gave me the confidence to keep going. When I first started I didn’t think that I would love this blog and blogging as much as I do, yes there are some things that need to be done and that I need to learn, but this process has been so fun and rewarding.

Book Review: Turtles All the Way Down

35504431Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
