Hi guys! It’s time for a few more book recommendations. Today I decided I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Debut Novels. Debut novels are something really important because the authors need to start from somewhere so why not talk about some of my favorites right? So let’s see which books made to this list 🙂 .

Hi guys! Once again I’m here to talk about some of my favorites of 2015. I already told you about my Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015 and my Top 10 Favorite TV Shows of 2015(here and here) and today I’m going to be talking about my Top 10 Favorite Book Covers of 2015. Everyone loves a good book cover and you know that I love book covers so much that I created a weekly meme about it so I had to do this top. As a disclaimer I’m already telling you that I haven’t read every single one of these books and I don’t even own some of them. This top is all about covers and not about content so I think that I should also choose a few books I haven’t read yet. Continue reading
Hi guys! As you might know today starts the last week of 2015. Yes, next week by this time we will be in 2016. Can you imagine? This year went by so fast. Because of that this week will be dedicated to my favorites of 2015. It might be books, it might be TV Shows, it might as well be my favorite covers of 2015, I still don’t know for sure but I’ll have a new list each day. Actually, if you want me to do a list of something just tell me in the comments. I might like the idea and do it 🙂 . To start this week I thought that I should start with my Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015, however, and because I keep cheating in these things, I’ll be showing you not 10 but 11 books (technically it’s more than 11 because I’ll have books from the same series). So let’s see some of my favorite books.
Disclaimer: These books are books that I’ve read in 2015 and because of that some of these books were released before this year. Also, the books that I’m going to show are going to appear in a random order because I couldn’t choose my favorite. Continue reading
Today is thursday which means that is Book Traveling Thursdays, a weekly meme created by me and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. This weeks theme is Everyone loves Diverse Books. Choose your favorite diverse book. For this week I decided to choose one of my favorite books of 2015. The book is Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Let’s go see some covers. Continue reading

So let’s see some of my favorite diverse characters. Continue reading
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 Title Fonts on Covers. I really like to appreciate the aesthetics of book covers but to be honest fonts is the last thing that I tend to notice. However this list made appreciate the fonts and understand how important they are in the final cover So let’s start this list.
The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer
I think that this font is really beautiful and it adds something to the cover itself. Not only that but it also looks a little bit futuristic for some reason 🙂 .
The Peach Keeper (Portuguese Edition)– Sarah Addison Allen
This is one of that books that I don’t hear anyone talking about and it makes me a little bit sad because Sarah Addison Allen has beautiful books. To be honest I love all of the portuguese edition covers of Sarah Addison Allen’s books and I think that the font is one of the things that caught my attention when I first saw this book (that and the beautiful cover also). The thing is that I really like the handwritten fonts and this one is just beautiful. However I’m mad now because the last book that was released here didn’t have this type of cover (an font) and now it doesn’t match with all the other beautiful books that I have that were written by the author.
Confess – Colleen Hoover
I really like the font that is used in this cover (and I loved the book). I like how the title is the main point of the cover and I love the colors used in the font. Is really gorgeous.
My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga
One thing I love in titles is when people mix different fonts in the title. I do it a lot of the times in my post headers. Because of that I really like the fonts used in this cover. One thing important is that the different fonts need to look good when they are together and it really worked in this cover.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
What a shock!! The Perks of Being a Wallflower in one of my lists (like it doesn’t happen almost every week 😛 ). I really love how the title looks handwritten and the words in the back. It really makes a beautiful cover.
These are some of my favorite book title fonts. What about you? Which books did you included in your top? Tell me in the comments.
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 Dealing with Mental Illness. I’ve read a few books dealing with mental illness but most of these books are about depression. After looking for a little bit in the books I’ve read I was able to find books not only about depression but also about other mental illness. So let’s start this list.
5. Silver Linings Playbook – Matthew Quick
If you haven’t read this book you probably watched the movie and know that the main characters suffer from mental illness and the male protagonist was even in a mental institution for quite a few time.
4. All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven
This is a beautiful book where both the main characters deal with depression and suicidal thoughts. Not only that but Finch suffers from a sort of bipolar disorder. It’s a book that opens your open to depression.
3. Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon
I’m not talking a lot of the book because it’s pretty recent but someone has a mental illness that really affects the book. This is an amazing book and if you haven’t read it you definitely should.
2. My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga
Another book in which both main characters deal with depression and suicidal thoughts. It’s one of the best books that I’ve read this year and the way that the author describes depression it’s really heart-breaking.
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
Is this a surprise? I’ve been very open about how much I love this books. It’s one of my favorite books ever and the way that it deals with Charlie’s mental illness is amazing and heart-breaking. For me this is a must read book and it had to be my number one pick for this week top.
These are some of my favorite books dealing with mental illness. What about you? Which books did you included in your top? Tell me in the comments.
