#SurpriseRead

MOST RECENT

Why is no one speaking about #WhenMorningComes by #ArushiRaina ??
.
.
This book has been a #SurpriseRead in every sense of the word....
It was a surprise additional book in last month's @tuj_bookbox ...
I am not very well read on #Apartheid , and I came across the #Soweto student uprising not long back.
But the synopsis had me hooked surprisingly!
And that cover!! Oh Lord that cover!!
It took me a while to register the beauty of that cover, but now it's like I cannot simply get over how gorgeous it is!!

QOTD: Do you have a book that you didn't think you would enjoy but ended loving?
.
.
AOTD: For me it was the girl who loved Tom Gordon. It was a short King book that gave me the chills and engrossed me until the last page!

July bookstagram challenge day 10. Surprising read. .
.
I wasn't sure when I started reading this book last year if I would enjoy it as I struggled to read the first few chapters. It is written through the eyes, voice and mind of a 4 year old so I found it hard to get into. But I perciveered and am so glad I did. It is an amazing book. .

I’ve chosen The Book Thief for day 10 and 11 of #taletimejulyphotochallenge📓
*
*
For ‘surprise read’ The Book Thief was one of those books I put off reading for ages. I had this misconception that it would require too much concentration. I eventually gave in to the hype after seeing so many positive reviews and I was shocked to find that it was one of the easiest books to get completely lost in📖
*
*
The story captures the horror of war in Germany in a brilliantly unique way. How many other stories do you read that are narrated by Death?

Which book did you put off reading for ages but then loved it?

Day 11 in my #taletimejulyphotochallenge is The Hype Made Me! I just had to show you this beautiful book again! Before Bookstagram I’d stick to reading back to back Thrillers, but since joining this I’ve found myself picking up almost every genre & I’m really enjoying it. I’m a massive #disnerd and in LOVE with fairytales, so when the whole of insta was raving about ‘The Surface Breaks’ - a reimagining of The Little Mermaid, I absolutely had to add it to my TBR. I was NOT disappointed. It’s insanely brilliant and i devoured it over a few hours. 🧜🏼‍♀️
*
#QOTD: What did the hype make you read? 💛
*
Confession: The hype also made me read, ‘To Kill a Kingdom’ and I just really didn’t enjoy it. This seems an unpopular opinion but it’s writing style is too juvenile for me. I understand why a younger audience would be captivated by it, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea! 🤷🏻‍♀️

Day 10 - #favouriteclassicbook / #surpriseread
#gibbs30daybookchallenge
#taletimejulyphotochallenge .
I am not a huge reader of the traditional classic books but these are both classed as classic! I again wasn't sure I would like them given that they are in this category but I loved them both! I absolutely adored To Kill A Mockingbird as I loved the characters....not so much the racism and the reason the book was written but it opened my eyes all the same. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was the same....the characters are fab along with the storyline....these two have become two of my all time favourite books 😍❤

I'm a day behind in posting 😱😱 #taletimejulyphotochallenge - surprise read

I picked this up because of the reviews and attention it had been receiving. I had seen a couple of reviews saying it wasn't worth the hype or Eleanor was creepy etc so it got pushed down my list. I read it and OMG it was great and I was upset with myself for not having read it earlier - it was a solid 4 🌟 for me

Have you read Eleanor Oliphant? What did you think?

Day 10 in my #taletimejulyphotochallenge is Surprise read! I’m currently in a buddy read for this book, I entered a competition to win it and totally didn’t expect anything to come from it, so I was absolutely BUZZING when I received the confirmation email! It’s very much a surprise read! 🤣 It comes out in two days and I’m hoping to have a blog review up so keep your eyes peeled for that! 👀
*
#QOTD: Have you taken part in a buddy read? 💜
*
Confession: This is my first buddy read and I genuinely had no idea where to start, however I really am enjoying having someone to talk to!

Day 10 of #taletimejulyphotochallenge is surprise read.
.

Controversially the Harry Potter series is my surprise read. I tried to read them when I was at school and didn’t really get in to them, and I never got in to the films. I started reading them again the other year, and I devoured them!! .

What was a surprise read for you?

Day 10 of#taletimejulyphotochallenge is “surprise read” and for me I’d say “Finding Audrey” by @sophiekinsellawriter is mine. This was the first YA book I’d read and I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially as this is one of my favourite authors, but I absolutely loved it, and have since read lots of YA books 💕📚
.
Also my mischievous hubby has been playing with my light box......as you can see he’s a little excited about the football 🙄

★ ★ BROKEN COMPASS IS LIVE! ★ ★
FREE in KU! 99¢ for release week only.

BROKEN COMPASS ❋❋ What if you were in love not just with one, not just with two, but with three hot guys? And what if they wanted you back? ❋❋ There are three of them. Three boys.
We’re friends. Neighbors. Our lives are linked through disaster, fear and pain.
I love them all. Not sure I can live without them. Can we just stay friends?
Can we ignore the desire flaring when we’re around each other?
Can I kiss one and not the other?
I can’t choose. Don’t want to choose.
And I’m not sure they can, either.
This story will either end up in heartache, or as any story should: in a happy ending. * This is a Reverse Harem romance - that is, one girl and three boys all ending up together happy. Standalone.* (This is the story of Sydney and her boys. You met Sydney in Bad Wolf - she is Gigi's best friend.) #BrokenCompass #ReverseHarem #NA #menage #Romance #standalone #RomanceReaders #newrelease #fivestarread #authorlove #surpriseread

I’m starting to get really excited! Book two in the Bionics Saga is set to release really soon, and I can’t wait to catch up with this old friend.
I received Asylum 54.0 in a @litcube Box last summer. I was a tad bit unsure, but the synopsis intrigued me. I dove in head first and haven’t looked back. This story is so unique and refreshing. I can’t wait to find out what happens to my crater knights!

What’s a book that surprised you?

Have I told you how much I love The First Drafts Book Club ran by @pickeringtonlibrary ?!?! Because last nights discussion on THUG gave me life. It’s nice being able to talk books with book people and also to discuss current events and things with a group of educated humans. Book Clubs give me LIFE!
This is Next months book of the month #myabsolutedarling by #gabrieltallent I’m going to be starting it today and I am pumped! I’ve heard it is dark and I’ve heard it is good! And if it’s not good then all the more reason to go to book club and talk about it! Lol 😂
I haven’t seen this book around Bookstagram much, but it is fairly new and I’m honestly not entirely sure what genre it falls into. #surpriseread lol
TGIF! Spring has finally decided it’s ready to grace us with its presence... I hope. 🙌🏼♥️ #book #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookclub #bookish #bookworm #bookdragon #bookcover #readingilikethatshit📚 #readmorebooks #readmore #goodreads #125booksinayear #lovethiscover #lovemybookclub

Liked this a lot more than I thought I would, all the classic elements of a spy/chase plot, small but effortlessly draws you into the story

Day 10 of #ardentbiblioreads: Recent favourite!
'Sweet Pizza' by G.R. Gemin was one of my favourite reads in February and it took me by surprise. It is a rather short book and it started of normal but then it developed such a subtle pull that I read it in two days straight. (Which is a Speedy-Gonzalez-reading-pace for me!📚🐀🏃🏻‍♀️)
The story about Joe's determination and inventiveness as he tries to save the family business, the story of Italian immigrants who got deported from their adopted country Wales in World War II out of distrust- it all just made effortlessly interesting reading material! I bought Gemin's debut novel 'Cowgirl' recently (it's set in the same village as 'Sweet Pizza') and I'm hoping for another entertaining (if not so surprising because now I look out for it) reading experience!
