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 Because some books stay with us forever!! Choose a book you want to re-read in 2016. I had a really hard time on this topic because I already used all the books I want to re-read in past topics. In the end I ended up choosing a book that I’ll hopefully re-read in 2016 because I want to read the remaining books. The book I choose for this week theme is Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I already read this about a year ago but this book is really complex and I don’t remember about a lot of things so I think that I’ll re-read it when I finally decided to read Golden Son. Here are some of the different covers for Red Rising 🙂 Continue reading

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.
But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
In the beginning of this book I had mixed feelings about it. First off all I was in a terrible reading slump when I read it and also, this is a book that as a lot of world building. Because of that it was hard to get into it and it was a little bit confusing. But then I got into it because I was already used to the world that Pierce Brown created and I really enjoyed it. This book might be in a dystopian world but it’s not like all the other dystopian books. If you think that this is the next The Hunger Games you are completely wrong. Yes, there are teens left «alone» in the wild where they have to survive but this even darker and ruthless than The Hunger Games.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and I’m excited to read the remainig books to see what’s coming up in this story.

For my first post I decided to talk about the books I’ve read in the month of March. March was a pretty bad reading month for me. While I normally read about 8-10 books a month in March I´ve only read 5 books.
The first book I’ve read was “The Distance Between Us” by Kasie West. I read this book because I was (and still am) in a reading slump and I asked in the Epic Reads twitter a good book for when you are in a reading slump. They gently suggested a book by Kasie West so I decided to read this one that was in my TBR for a long time. I really loved this book and read it in two days. It is a light book and I was in the mood for a book like this.
The next two books I’ve read in March were both written by Colleen Hoover. First I decided to read “Losing Hope”. Even though that this book had the same story has “Hopeless” (that I really liked) I loved to read it in Holder’s perspective. Then I’ve read her new book “Confess”. Colleen Hoover’s books are always heartbreaking but I have loved all her books that I’ve read.
You can see by the last books that I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary. So it´s not a surprise my fourth reading of the month was also contemporary. The book I’m talking about is “All the Bright Places” by Jennifer Niven. This book talks about teens contemplating suicide. This has been a very common subject in books this year and after reading it you end up thinking about this and about all the people who suffer from depression.
The last book I’ve read is tottaly different from the books I talked before. So, my last reading of the month was “Red Rising” by Pierce Brown. This is a YA sci-fi book that takes place in a dystopian world. In the beggining it’s a little confusing because of the world-building but when you get into it is an amazing book, and if you like sci-fi books you will love it.
I have also started the second book of the Outlander series, “Dragonfly in Amber” but I have yet to finish it. This books that a long time to absorb so I don´t know when I’m going to finish. What I can say about it is that I still prefer “Outlander”, but I still have 200 pages to finish and my opinion can change.
So tell me, what have you read in the month of March?
