     The weather is so awesome now: it is not hot anymore, but windy, but unfortunately you can feel the light breath of the autumn approaching, especially in the morning. So feeling a little bit gloomy I ordered two parcels of books as a summer treat, which should be delivered at the end of the month...so exited.
      I am in the middle of Tome Topple Readathon and finished two books (The Son by Jo Nesbo and The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith). I have three more to read, but I guess if I read two of them it will be still a good result.

Newcomers on my Shelf
       Around Christmas I took part in Secret Santa and got a book A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass. Later on I could not find any reasonable explanation why I added this book to my wish list in the first place, but in the end here it is I have a book which I know nothing about. It turned out the it is the first book out of 3 and the final one is released in May. So, I decided since I have the first one I will complete the series and read all of them together and most probably get rid of them after that. My newcomers are: A Court of Mist and Fury and A Court of Wings and Ruin.
Now I have them all. Did I make a mistake?

  2. People seem to love the series, although I've never read it. So I don't think you would have made a mistake :) I keep hearing good things about these. So have fun reading them :)

  3. It's been nice here too, a nice break from the humidity. You're right though, sometimes the breeze has a touch of fall in it...

    I agree with you on Girl on the Train, I thought the book was better but it was okay. Emily Blunt did a good job considering.

  4. A Court of Thorns and Roses was good and Court of Myst and Fury was even better! I can take-or-leave most YA Fantasy, but they were all captivating reads :)
