Sunscorched: Blog Tour

School has kept me so busy these days I’ve hardly picked up any ARCs for the fear of not being able to complete them. Plus I was a little put off since most of the ARCs I seemed to receive weren’t working out for me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But on a whim I signed up for the blog tour of Sunscorched and I was in for a great surprise! Sunscorched is an intense and gripping dystopian thriller novel that had me glued to my e-reader and reading fervently till the very end.

This blog tour has been organised by YA Bound Book Tours who also provided me with a free e-copy of Sunscorched in exchange for a review.

Goodreads Sumary:

Life canโ€™t possibly get more treacherous than a violent sun allergy in a solar-blighted world. At least thatโ€™s what seventeen-year-old Nori Chisholm thought before news of an impending sunscorch delivered her death sentence.ย 

Desperate to survive the scorch, sheโ€™s forced to shelter underground and discovers a secret subterranean world where life is hard, and so are the people. Betrayed and left for dead by the man who pledged to help her, Nori is sold to a gritty pit fighting ring. There she makes a friendโ€”and plenty of enemies.

Sam Cooperโ€™s motives are at times impenetrable, but speeding through the underground world on the back of his motorcycle is a dark freedom Nori canโ€™t live without. On the run from a group of cutthroat rogues, their escape takes an unexpected twist. A shocking discovery shatters everything they thought they knew. Can they use the knowledge to save whatโ€™s left of the world?

Winner of the Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction, Sunscorched is a tale of survival and self-discovery at breakneck speed. Fans of Bella Forrest and Marie Lu, who crave dangerous heroes and dark secrets, will love the Sunscorched world.

Mythothon TBR

What better than planning for November before October ends?

A few weeks ago Louise @Foxes and Fairytales contacted me through Twitter about a Greek mythology related readathon and even before I finished reading her message I was screaming yes!

Basically Mythothon is a month long readathon from 1st to 30th November in your timezone. While the readathon is based on greek mythology you don’t actually have to read books of greek or any mythology, unless you want to.

You can create a full or partial TBR pertaining to the various prompts provided and just get reading! Sign-ups are open till November 1 but you can actually join whenever you want, latecomers are welcome too.

Regular Porridge: Book Review

I’m pretty sure that my blog is one of the only ones out there which doesn’t post book reviews as often as it should. Don’t ask me why, that’s how it is! Even when I was starting this blog I knew that I wanted to do more of discussion posts, funny thoughts, listicles and so on and slip a couple of book reviews in between ๐Ÿ˜›

And today I’m going to be reviewing ‘Regular Porridge’ a short poetry book dealing with various important topics.

~I was sent a free e-copy of this book by the author but this does not influence my opinions in any way. This book review is completely honest and straight from my heart~

Goodreads Summary:

Regular porridge as a collection explores the meaning of life- success and failure and how they intertwine, as well as how a person may find it difficult to balance the two, confusing one for the other. This book contains tales of how people go about their lives and the extraordinary web each life can weave, using the appreciation of art to explore the human experience. Love and human relations have been depicted in some pieces too. Love is agony, ecstasy, unpredictable, testing and perfectly serene. It doesn’t always have to be something you feel but something you do. In this collection, fiction has been used to catalyze introspection in people and instead of setting out to solely entertain readers, this poetry collection certainly educates, too.

Top Ten Tuesday: Libraries I Would Sell My Soul To Visit

That’s right, I’m finally taking part in the Top Ten Tuesday meme!

I have a confession…

For the longest time I was afraid nobody would read these posts on my blog because my readers are only interested in reading about books, discussions and other stuff and not something related to me?

Looking back I can see my anxiety completely took over.

After I finally realized the world won’t end if I did a TTT post I just never seemed to get the time and the topics weren’t the ones I wanted to talk about?

BUT I CAN TALK ABOUT LIBRARIES FOR HOURS, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

 

So Top Ten Tuesday was created byย The Broke and the Bookishย in June of 2010 and was moved toย That Artsy Reader Girlย in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the hostโ€™s.

Today’s topic is ‘Bookstores/Libraries Iโ€™ve Always Wanted to Visit’ but I’ll be talking only about libraries because I’m honestly not that into bookstores? Libraries on the other hand are a godsend.
