- May is the month when flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you.
I've never been a Science fan, but after reading the Martian it was all about space. During and after reading it I started to read more about the scientific space advancement and discoveries. All the legends and stories about the moon's landing and space's adventures will blow your mind!
The Martian is really well written, Andy Weir was able to make science not only simple but also funny and appealing.
June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre that you like to read when you just need to check out.
When I need to plug off from everything I usually go for a Romance, better if it's about teenage drama. More than anything it has to be a light and fast read, where my brain can chill and have a good time.
- July is the time to celebrate your independence! Name a book that made you see fireworks. (Figuratively. Please don't light books on fire)
Talking about fire certainly, Frost Blood by Elly Blake has it (REVIEW--> HERE). This new dystopian series started off quite well with a Little Red Hood reminiscence in the plot and the building of a world separated in fire and ice. A good read but still unremarkable under many aspects, I waiting for the spark in the second book!
Also July it's my birthday month, the best gift I ever received was two concert tickets for my favorite singer: The Passenger, thanks sis xx
- August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing.
Well she is already hot and if you haven't heard about her you should open Goodreads, cuz Victoria Schwab is going worldwide. A Darker Shade of Magic it's been on the top ten NewYork Times bestselling fantasy for a while, also the trilogy if starting to be translated around the world, not to mention that the right have been acquired for a possible movie-series adaptation. For me, this series is one of the best high-fantasy and dark story of all the time, all mixed up with perfect writing and clever plot, put her on the list for the next J.K Rowling.
- September is time for students to go back to school! Pick a book you read for school that you actually enjoyed.
I was lucky enough this year to read all good books - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde by Robert Luis Stevenson, Hamlet and The Tempest by Shakespeare, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, Dracula by Bram Stoker- I enjoyed all of them but if I had to pick one, I'll say Hamlet. I still can't believe how much I liked this tragedy, I did revalue Shakespeare a lot and found myself in love with his plays.
- October is time to celebrate Halloween! Pick a character that you would love to dress up as for Halloween.
Inej from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. She is a kickass famle character with kickass ability, what else do you want!?!
- November is the month when we're reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. Choose one book you're grateful for having read and give a shout-out to the person who recommended it!
Cinder by Marissa Meyer and I'm super thankful to @bright_star91 for recommending it. I would have never though that classic fairytale could be swept into a sci-fi universe and still work so well.I loved the book and I loved the series.
- December is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, this book I surely one of my must-gift. I did give it already to almost all my friends, I love the book, it's a short beautiful story and the illustration from Jim Kay are amazing.
- January begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you've kept it or not.
Well, has every year I usually promise myself that I'll be more healthy, I'll do more sport, go on a diet, get out more, study harder, and has every year it turns out that I have all good intentions but the universe is plotting against me. Like if I want to go on a diet, my sister will pop by my house with cake; if I wanna go running, it will start to rain, if I want to study, a book will start screaming to be picked up from my bookshelf. So yes, it's not that I'm not persistent in my goals, it the universe!
- February is the month for relationships. Name your favorite book relationship: romantic, platonic, or familial, your choice!
Jenny Han is one of the best in creating a real net of characters, you can touch the connection existing between the characters in To All the boys I've loved before. The love and feelings between the character are at hand, you feel them ahs your own.
- March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you'd never read it.
Harry Potter for sure, It was my first fantasy series and I do reread it from time to time so I would love to experience again all that wonder and anxiety.
- April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations.
I was expecting way more from a Wintersong by S.Jae-Jones (REVIEW-->HERE), though I loved the whole idea about the goblin wife, the development and the boring description about music made it so that it was a struggle to get to its end.
They are all amazing blog, check them out!I really enjoyed doing this tag. Of course, don't feel forced to do it, it's to have fun if you have the time ;).
