Hi guys,

Today I’m here to thank you for all the support I’ve been receiving for the last two and a half months. And why am I doing this you ask. First because about a week ago this happened:


1000 views? I wasn’t expecting this to happen not even in 5 years. Thank you so much to come here and care enough to read what I write. Another thing that happened. THIS:


If anyone tried to tell me that this would happen when I started this blog I would not believe it. I started this blog because I had too much free time and it was something that I wanted to do for a long time. This was one of the best decisions I made and it’s all because I have amazing followers =). Thank you so much for all the support. I will try to keep doing the best job possible in this blog and I hope you keep liking it.

Day and Night Book Tag


Hi guys,

Today I bring you another tag. I haven’t done one of this for a few weeks so I decided to do one today. The tag I’m going to answer today is The Day and Night Book Tag. This tag was created by Readigans and I was tagged by the lovely Warisha at WarishaReads to do it. So let’s start it.

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?
Normally I prefer to read during the night right before I go to bed.

A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. I still don’t agree with the theme of the book but while I was reading it I was rooting for the main characters. It’s just that this book is so difficult.

Y: YA or not?
YA… It’s not that I don’t read other genres but I prefer YA.

A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?
For me all the characters are real both in the authors and the readers minds and that’s enough for me.

N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?
Sometimes I lend my books but I regret my decision as soon as I do it… I just can’t say no when someone asks me for a book.

D: Do you ever smell your books?
Is this really a question? Every time I buy books and every time I start reading one

N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?
I think that everyone has the right to like or not like different things but reading is so important and I really need someone to talk about books with me.

I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?
I try to keep them in the best condition but unfortunately sometimes they get a little bit damaged when they are at my purse

G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?
False… Too many books is something that doesn’t exist to me. It’s impossible to have too many books.

H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?
Oh yeah… I did it. The last time was about one year ago when I was reading Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen. Let’s just say that some chocolate milk ended up in my book (when I say some chocolate milk I’m talking about the whole glass).

T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?
Nope. First I started working out 1 month ago so it’s something really recent. And then I can’t have books in my hands when I’m working out.

So this is it, the Day and Night Book Tag. I will tag anyone who wants to do it. If you do it just tell me in the comments. =)

T5W – Books with Multiple POVs

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Books with Multiple POVs. This was a difficult choice for me because I couldn’t remind books with more than two POVs but I managed to get some. Let’s start this list.

5. The Casual Vacancy – J.K. Rowling

I know that a lot of people didn’t like this book but I think that it was a pretty good book. And this book has POV for a lot of the characters which was helpful to understand the book a little bit better.

4. The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer

I’m not even starting to explain why I love these books so much. I just do. I really like how we have POVs for the main characters and how with each book released we have at least one more POV for a new character.

3. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern

This is one of my favorite books ever. I’ve read it about 3 years ago and I just loved it. I really think that the different POVs helped in the story telling.

2. Throne of Glass Series – Sarah J. Maas

OK. I’ve only read the first book but I’m pretty sure that I will love the remaining books. Once again a really well written book where the different POVs helped to the development of the plot.

1. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare

Let’s be real. It wouldn’t be a T5W if I didn’t cheat a little bit. As always my number one pick is Cassandra Clare’s series. These are some of my favourite series and I had to include them. I could have included only one of the series but I just couldn’t choose one.

Multiple POVs

This is it, my top 5 books with multiple POVs. Tell me, which books have you included in your tops?

Beyond Reach (True Calling #2) by Siobhan Davis – Review (SPOILERS)

Publication Date:

April 30th 2015



Goodreads Synopsis: 


Back on Earth, Ariana is caught in a dangerous crossfire between clandestine rebel organization Clementia and the power-hungry government. Refusing to divulge the location of the secret information entrusted to her by her late father, she desperately tries to bargain for her Mom, Lily, and Cal’s rescue. She’s fighting a losing battle, and the clock is ticking.

Presented with evidence of her fiancé Cal’s apparent betrayal, she loyally defends him despite her concerns. With her emotions in turmoil, matters become even more complicated as she grows closer to her ex-boyfriend Zane.

When the stakes are raised, a succession of shocking revelations rocks her world, setting her on a path that will not only change her destiny but the fate of humanity.

Confronted by a memory so abhorrent comes a truth she would do anything to forget.

But some things just can’t be undone.


First I would like to thank Siobhan Davis and NetGalley for giving me an ARC of this book for an honest review.

I have to say to you… I liked True Calling but this one was even better. This book starts where True Calling finished and with Ariana back to earth without her family and without Cal. Throughout the book you can see her development as a character and her struggle about who she should trust and how she feels about Cal and Zane. So yeah, it was great to see her growth in this book. However, there were sometimes that I wanted to scream at her for some bad decisions. If you read my True Calling you might know that I didn’t trust Cal but meanwhile I’ve read the novella Lovestruck and I actually thought that I was wrong and I was happy about that. But then I’ve read this book and I wasn’t totally wrong about not trusting Cal. He did some stupid things but I now understand why he did it. And then there’s Zane. I love his bond with Ariana and how we can see how much he loves her with his actions. Also, after the cliffhanger that this book had I’m really excited to see the story is going take Ariana, Zane and Cal and I’m mostly excited to know what Ariana remembered. I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be a big part of the next book. Another thing is that there is so much happening in this book that there isn’t a boring part in this book because there is always something that happens that changes the direction of the story and I really liked it. My only problem with that was that sometimes it was a little bit rushed but overall I was really happy with this book. There were moments that I couldn’t leave my book because something would happen and I needed to know what was coming next. I’m talking to you Chapter 11 last sentence… I was thinking that this thing could happen but I really thought that I was wrong so that wasn’t expected at all.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m really excited to see how it’s going to end. The plot was amazing and the author’s writing was pretty good. I actually think that Siobhan Davis writing improved in this book. If you like this type of books and if you like to be surprised read this book.

Book Covers Around the World #4

Today I bring you again Book Covers Around the World. Today we will be seeing the different covers of The Infernal Devices. This is one of my favorite series and I thought that these were good books to analyze the different covers. Also, if you want to leave some suggestions of which book should go next just tell me in the comments. So let’s start it.

United States (Original Covers)

infernal devices usa original

I love these covers. I especially like the fact that they match with The Mortal Instruments. I normally don’t like faces in covers, as I said before, but these are absolutely stunning and it’s impossible not to love them. Another thing I love in these covers is that the persons in the covers actually represent the main characters and you know that sometimes that doesn’t happens.

United States (New Covers)

infernal devices usa new covers

These are the new covers that are going to be released in September. Once again I think that these covers are amazing and the concept is pretty cool. I don’t like the yellow fonts that much but according to Cassandra Clare the font will be in gold but it’s not possible to show that in the computer so I’m pretty excited to see how the final look will be.


infernal devices portugal

The portuguese covers are basically like the original covers. The only difference is the font used for the book title. I don’t know why but I like this font better than the original but this is only my opinion. Covers for Spain and Mexico (and I think that Brazil too) are the same as the portuguese covers. I think that the only difference might be the font colour.


infernal devices germany

I like these covers but I have a problem with them. They look more like covers for child/middle-grade books and I think that it’s a little bit weird. But they are still beautiful covers and are not the worst of the covers that I’m going to be showing.


infernal devices italy

I told you there were worst covers. I really don’t like the italian covers. I think that they are a little bit weird and they don’t remind me of the characters.


infernal devices slovakia

More weird covers. I understand their idea of using Tessa’s necklace in the cover but I don’t think that they accomplished their idea. I just think that it ended up not looking that good.


infernal devices estonia

I don’t know if I like these covers or not but I can tell you something, the angel in the Clockwork Angel reminds me of the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who. If you watch Doctor Who you may know that they are really scary so this covers scares me a little bit. The second cover reminds me of Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the last cover just don’t seems something from The Infernal Devices. I don’t think that the girl’s dress is really right for a book that takes place in the late 1800s. Well, I don’t like the covers.

What did you think? Which one is your favourite? Don’t forget, if you want to see the different covers for one particular book tell me in the comments. It could be the next one.

Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Book Lover

Hi guys,

After writing a post about The struggles of being a book lover (if you want to you can read it here) I decided to do something similar but this time is a list about Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Book Lover. You know how it is… I don’t know why but there are some people who don’t understand that there are some really dumb things that they shouldn’t say to us, book lovers. The next list will have the things that annoy me the most. Let’s start it.

“You can’t bring a book with you” – This one never happened to me but don’t tell me this. I always take at least one book with me everywhere I go.

“Don’t you have other things to do?” Yeah, I had other things to do but now I want to read and you don’t anything to do with what I want to do with my time.

“Are you really buying books? Again?” – Are you really asking me that? Of course I’m buying books. I actually enjoy to read them.

“I don’t understand why you keep all these books” – And I don’t understand why you’re saying that. I keep them because I liked them or I’m reading them again.

“Are you reading this book again?Why?” – The same reason why you are watching the same movie again. I liked it and I want to read it again.

“[INSERT NAME] is going to be made into a movie” – Which means that probably the movie will not have some really important scenes (cough* Peeta’s leg *cough) and probably will suck

“Why would I read the book when I can watch the movie?” – I don’t even know what to say when someone says this.

“The movie was much better than the book” – Have you read the book? Because if you haven’t don’t even dare to say that.

“Are you already in that chapter where [SOMETHING SPOILERY HAPPENS]?” – Are you joking right now? Did you just told me something that I didn’t know yet?? Really?

“It’s just a book… get over it” – Just don’t talk with me in the next few hours… It’s better for you

“I don’t know where is the book I’ve borrowed from you” – And I don’t know where is your sense of responsibility. You don’t lose someone else’s books

“Sorry. I spilled something/wrote in your book” – Really? Sorry. I accidentally ripped something you really like.

“How do you have so much time to read?” – How do you have so much time to do something that I don’t usually do?

“You read too much” – Do you have problems with that??

“I don’t really like to read” – Oh… I’m sorry but don’t say that to me… Just don’t

These are the things I think people should not tell a book lover. Do you have something to add to this list? Just tell me in the comments.

T5W – Favorite Books of the Year So Far!

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This weeks theme is Top 5 Favorite Books of the Year So Far. I’ve read 36 books this year so far so I don’t know how I was able to reduce this list to only 5 books. Let’s be real, I may have cheated a little bit because only 5 books?? Not happening. Let’s start this list.

5. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

This is the amazing debut novel by Becky Albertalli and if you haven’t read it yet you should. The plot was pretty cool and I liked all the characters and everything about this book. If you want to read my review click here.


4. My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga 


Another debut novel that I’ve read this year. This book is beautiful and so heartbreaking that it is almost impossible to not like it. It is about teen suicide and I know that this is a sensitive theme but if you like to read this type of books you should. You can read my review here.


3. A Court of Throns and Roses and Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas


This is where the cheating starts. You can’t ask me to choose between A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass. You just can’t do it. Both books were amazing and I love how Sarah J. Maas creates the worlds and also her writing. And let’s not talk about the characters. They are amazing. You can read reviews for both books by clicking here and here.

2. City of Heavenly Fire – Cassandra Clare

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)If you’ve been here for long enough you might know about my love for all of the books written by Cassandra Clare. The woman is a genius and I love how she ended The Mortal Instruments series and also how she introduced the characters from The Dark Artifices. This book was one of the best from the series and I had to include it in this list.

1. Harry Potter (Books 1 – 5) – J. K. Rowling

harry potter

I know. Cátia you haven’t read the Harry Potter books?? No I haven’t, until the beginning of this year when I decided that one of my New Year resolutions was to read the Harry Potter series. And I’m doing it. I still have to read the last two books but at least I’m reading this. And I’m loving it. I don’t know why I took so long to start reading these books but I can accept that it was a big mistake that I did.

This is it, my favorite books of the year so far. Tell me, which books have you included in your tops?

Summer Reads

Today I decided to talk to you about the books I want to read during the summer. I don’t know if this happens to you but normally in this time of the year I read mostly contemporary books. I don’t know if it’s because these books remind me of summer of if it is because of something else but is what I like to read during this time. The books I’m going to show you today are some of the books that I want to read this summer. I don’t know if it’s going to happen or no but I’m going to try to read them. I included the books synopsis in the post so you can read what the book is about if you don’t know yet.

P.S. I Still Love You – Jenny Han

Proof of Forever – Lexa Hillyer

Before: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.
After: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.
Then: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.

99 Days – Katie Cotugno

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.
Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”
Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

City Love – Susane Colasanti

Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives.

Sadie is a native New Yorker. She is hopeful, romantic, and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. Then she meets her dream boy: cute, funny, and quirky in all the right ways. The chemistry between them is unreal. Could he be the one?

Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources. Moving to New York City is just another adventure for her. Darcy wants this summer to be all about boy adventures—nothing serious. But how much fun is too much?

Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC so she can put her past behind her and reinvent herself. The only thing standing in her way is the grand total of seventy-three cents she has saved. Then she meets a guy who wants to show her the glamorous side of New York—a side that she would never get to experience on her own. If Rosanna doesn’t resist, she may find herself in city love.
Told from alternating points of view, City Love captures the moments in each girl’s life when everything is thrilling, amazing, and terrifying all at once . . . in a way it will never be again.

Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend – Katie Finn

Hot sun. Blue waves. New romances. Old secrets.
Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes a sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence.
Being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don’t hold grudges forever. Do they?
Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago—including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh—to believe she’s someone else. As though the summer wasn’t complicated enough already.
Filled with summer sun, boys, and friendships gone sour, Katie Finn’s first novel in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series sizzles and delights.

The Fill-in Boyfriend – Kasie West

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she’d been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

Joyride – Anna Banks

A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.
It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber’s mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Emmy & Oliver – Robin Benway

Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart?
Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.
She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.
Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.
He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.
Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?
Readers who love Sarah Dessen will tear through these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver’s father’s crime. Full of romance, coming-of-age emotion, and heartache, these two equally compelling characters create an unforgettable story.

Extraordinary Means – Robyn Schneider

From the author of The Beginning of Everything: two teens with a deadly disease fall in love on the brink of a cure.
At seventeen, overachieving Lane finds himself at Latham House, a sanatorium for teens suffering from an incurable strain of tuberculosis. Part hospital and part boarding school, Latham is a place of endless rules and confusing rituals, where it’s easier to fail breakfast than it is to flunk French.
There, Lane encounters a girl he knew years ago. Instead of the shy loner he remembers, Sadie has transformed. At Latham, she is sarcastic, fearless, and utterly compelling. Her friends, a group of eccentric troublemakers, fascinate Lane, who has never stepped out of bounds his whole life. And as he gradually becomes one of them, Sadie shows him their secrets: how to steal internet, how to sneak into town, and how to disable the med sensors they must wear at all times.
But there are consequences to having secrets, particularly at Latham House. And as Lane and Sadie begin to fall in love and their group begins to fall sicker, their insular world threatens to come crashing down.
Told in alternating points of view, Extraordinary Means is a darkly funny story about doomed friendships, first love, and the rare miracle of second chances.

Nowhere But Here – Katie McGarry

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.
Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she’s curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.
Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They’re the good guys. They protect people. They’re…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club’s most respected member—is in town, he’s gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it’s his shot at his dream. What he doesn’t count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.
No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

And what about you? What are you planning to read this summer. Tell me in the comments.

A Court of Throns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – Review

Publication Date:

May 5th 2015


Bloomsbury Children’s

Goodreads Synopsis: 

The breathtaking start to a seductive high-fantasy from New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass series.

No mortal would dare venture beyond the borders of their world to Prythian, a forbidden kingdom of faeries. But Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill, and when she spots a deer being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. Killing the predator comes at a price though – her life, or her freedom.

Dragged to Prythian, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, the faerie lands becomes an even more dangerous place.


I was really excited for this book and this was one of my most anticipating releases of 2015 first because it’s written by Sarah J. Maas and also because it is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and I love retellings. Believe me, I wasn’t disappointed when I finished this book. The plot, the characters and the writing style were amazing just like the author got us used to. Feyre was a pretty good main character but that girl is stubborn as hell. If someone tells you not to do something please don’t do it, ok? And then there was Tamlin. I loved they’re interactions and how their relationship grew. Let’s be real, I loved Tamlin and he just entered my fictional boyfriends list (damn, that list is getting big XD). I also loved Lucien and how he was a great friend to Tamlin. And let’s not forget Rhys. That guy was getting to my nerves but he was a great character and I’m pretty sure that he is going to be a big part in the remaining books. Another thing I loved about this book was the unique plot and the world in which the book is set. I normally don’t read fair books but this one was great. And that ending… that was an amazing ending. I wasn’t expecting that to happen but it was great.

Overall, this is one of my favorite books that I’ve read this year. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as Throne of Glass but it ended up being better. I also love Sarah J. Maas writing style and how she describes everything taking us to the world that she created. So, if you love fairytale retellings, fantasy books or Sarah J Maas do a favour to yourself and read this book if you haven’t yet.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it?
