My News & TBR Clean Out Challenge

Hello, my faithful readers!

It’s been such a long time since I last published a new post that I’d be thankful if there’s even one of you still following this blog.

The truth is that I’ve had to deal with a lot of problems the last two years that I’m still dealing with now. Some are more personal and I don’t want to talk about them here, Continue reading


Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon TBR

This is going to be a very quick post. I just wanted to say that I’m going to be participating in the Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon. If you want to learn more about the Read-a-thon, the challenges, etc you can visit the Read-a-thon’s page and if you want to know the exact start and end times in your timezone you can find out here.

My TBR for this Read-a-thon is going to be very short. It actually contains only one book. Well it is a bindup of two books, and my goal is to read at least the first one. So, the book I will be reading is…

10790277Rise of Empire by Michael J. Sullivan

The birth of the Nyphron Empire has brought war to Melengar. To save her kingdom, Princess Arista runs a desperate gamble when she defies her brother and hires Royce and Hadrian to perform a dangerous mission behind the enemy’s lines.

I’ve just read Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan, which is the first bindup in the Riyria Revelations series and this is the continuation. Rise of Empire is a bindup of Nyphron Rising and The Emerald Sea books four and five respectively in the series. The first book was really really good and I’m hoping that this one will be even better. However, I will admit that this is a huge book to read in 24 hours. Especially when you have guests in the house. The good thing is that the Read-a-thon started in the early afternoon in my timezone and will end in an equally convenient time.

Now it’s your turn…

Are you participating in the Read-a-thon? Which books are you planning to read? What was a really good or really bad book you read recently?

My Book Buying Ban & Reading Plans for 2017

It is a very good thing that I decided to check my comments and notifications on my blog today. Had I not, then this post wouldn’t have been posted until March 3rd, even though I had planned to publish it a month earlier than that. Why? Eeeerhm, well…I might have scheduled it for arch 3rd thinking I had scheduled it for February 3rd. It is possible, but HIGHLY unlikely. My bet is that aliens hacked into my WordPress account and changed my scheduled posts’ dates. Yes, that is what happened. *nods head*

Tome Topple Read-a-thon TBR

I recently found out about this Read-a-thon from the Little Book Owl and I thought that it was a great idea for me to read some of the bigger books on my Bookshelf Love Challenge TBR.

The Read-a-thon will last from November 18th to December 1st and the goal is to read as many tomes over 500 pages during that time as possible. There are also challenges, but I won’t be doing any of them. Continue reading

Bookshelf Love Reading Challenge TBR


Since we are approaching the end of the year I decided to participate in the Bookshelf Love Reading Challenge in order to motivate myself to complete some of my reading goals for 2016. Especially now that I have so many things to do, I need to set a more specific goal if I want to finally read some of the books that I have added on my TBR shelves. I am not going to donate the books that I might not read within that time frame, because I might not have enough time to read all of the them. However, I am going to be posting weekly updates every Sunday in order to keep myself on track. You can find out more about this challenge in the original challenge page. Continue reading

#AZDiverse Read-a-thon & #AYearAThon & July TBR

It’s been a while since I made a TBR post and even longer since I participated in #AYearAThon and there’s a reason for that. I am really bad at reading the books I have planned to read instead of other books that have nothing to do with my TBR list. Also, I have a really bad history with Read-a-thons; whenever I decide that I’m going to participate in a Read-a-thon something happens and I just cannot find the time to do it. Continue reading

The Greek Fiction on my TBR

I’ve been buying a lot more books by Greek authors lately than foreign ones. So, I decided that it would be a nice idea to talk about all the books by Greek authors on my TBR shelves and give you an idea of what contemporary Greek Literature is like.

I have put the books in order starting with the one I am least excited about and finishing with the one I am most interested in reading.DSCN0033.JPG Continue reading
