Top Ten Tuesday #6 – August 26th: Books I Need To Get Soon!

toptentuesday

The Broke And The Bookish presents us every week a new top ten with a different theme. And this Tuesday’s theme is the Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet. When I first saw this theme, I was mostly thinking: Seriously, only ten? My need-to-get-soon list at Goodreads has about 40 titles on it alone, and I haven’t updated that one that recently. I’ve tried to make a selection for this Top Ten Tuesday though:

Which of these have you read already and can you recommend to me? Any books I should buy first?

Teaser Tuesdays #9 – August 26th: Awakening Foster Kelly

teasertuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

The book I’m currently reading is Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie Olsen, one of my very first ARC’s I recieved from Ethereal Book Reviews in exchange for my honest review. I haven’t read enough yet to form a proper opinion about this book, but I’m very excited about finally entering the world of ARC. 😀

awakening“Franky, I didn’t know whether to be relieved, stunned, or terrified. What was I to make of Dominic’s examination? It wasn’t possible for him to have known I was thinking of him just now. ”

Time To Celebrate!

The other day I realized I have been blogging at WordPress for more than a year now! I started posting my reviews at a different blog, but moved to WordPress in August last year. So it is time to celebrate and thank everyone who has visited, commented and supported my humble blog during the last year!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE OUT THERE FOR INSPIRING ME TO KEEP IMPROVING MY BLOG AND ABOVE ALL: TO KEEP READING!!! 😀

It means the world to me that my rambles are being appreciated, and I love that this blog has made me read more than ever AND made me get to know some very awesome people and great community. Thanks again! ❤

On to some numbers… In the last year blogging, 286 people decided that my rambles are interesting enough to follow It’s All About Books, and together have liked more than 1000 times what I’ve wrote. I have managed to read 100 books since I first started to keep notes of what I’ve read in November 2012 (although I still have to upload some older reviews), and I have reached the magical 150 post mark the other day as well! Woohoo! When I first started this blog, I wouldn’t have even dreamed about these numbers… And sometimes when I open my blog, I still cannot believe it. So… Thanks to all those awesome people out there! Let’s go celebrate with some virtual cupcakes and adorable kittens! 😀
