So today I started and finished A Rogue by Any Other Name. I enjoyed it. Author did a great job of bringing up Penelope and Michael's past while being in the present. Book like these are my vice. They are pretty forgettable, but enjoyable read. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Oh my... This is the kind of book that makes my heart soar. Quirky characters with soul. Definitely will be one of my favorite books read this year.








Challenge: Literary Villain


Favorite villain in books that was first though in my mind have to be Voldemort from Harry Potter. While he wants to make the world of magic available only for those of the purest blood, what really reals him up is his hatred for Harry Potter.


Book of a day: 1984 by George Orwell

1984 was sitting on my book shelf for years and I never got around to reading it. But I really glad I finally did it! Classics isn't genre I like much, but many times reading this book I couldn't believe it really was written in 1949. This book still seems so relevant in nowadays.


It reminded me in many aspects a tv series The Man in the High Castle.







Challenge: Book Trip


Paris is Always a Good Idea. We all are fascinated with The City of Light like no other, and it definitely is on many peoples bucket list. Here some books I would recommend to read if Paris fuels your imagination.

Historical Fiction - Paris by Edward Rutherfurd

Historical Nonfiction - The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough

Historical Romance - The Dress Thief by Natalie Meg Evans

Contemporary Romance - Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Paranormal Romance - Die for Me (Revenants #1) by Amy Plum




Unfortunately today I won't have as much free time to read as I had few previous days, so will split the book between today and tomorrow.
