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. Continue reading
Hi guys! It’s time for a few more book recommendations. As I told you in my last recommendations post (here) I decided to split my original post in 3 different posts because I had a lot of books that I wanted to recommend so today we have Young Adult Contemporary Novels – Part II. So let’s start these recommendations. 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 Book Series I Wish Had More Books. There aren’t a lot of series that I wanted to have more books because most of the series that I’ve read had a great closure but I was able to find a few for this top. So let’s start this list.
5. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han
If you’ve read my review for P.S. I Still Love You (here) you might know that I had a few problems with the book but I would love to read something that was years later and mainly from Kitty’s POV because I loved Kitty and she was my favorite character in the series.
4. Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
I think that this series is perfect to have more books. We could have one book from Meredith’s POV or even Calliope. It would be pretty cool and we could hear more about the other characters again.
3. Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi
Ok… I’m going to be honest here. I just need Warner back to my life so a few more books in this series would be great and I think that Tahereh would find the perfect story to tell next.
2. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
Technically this is not a book series, it’s a stand alone but I would love to read how the circus is a few years later from Bailey’s POV or even better, a prequel from Tsukiko’s POV. I would do anything for a prequel.
1. Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling
Well, I haven’t finish Harry Potter yet but seeing that I started this year it’s pretty good that I only have two books left. However it’s not like I don’t know what’s going to happen, I saw the movies. I think that it would be great to have a prequel about the Marauders or even a sequel about the children. And I promise that I wouldn’t wait so long to read them as I did with the Harry Potter series.
These are some of the book series I wish had more books. What about you? Which books did you included in your top? Tell me in the comments.

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?
In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.
I was really excited to read this book because I loved To All the Boy I’ve Loved Before however I started reading some reviews that this book wasn’t as good as the first one and that’s the reason it took me so long to read this book. Let’s just say that the reviews I’ve read about this book were right. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people agree with me when I say that this duology would be better if it was just a stand-alone. Jenny Han could have added the first few chapters to the end of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and it would be better. However this was a pretty cute book and I liked it but there was so much unnecessary drama. I loved the beginning of the book. Seeing Lara Jean interacting with her family and seeing her relationship with Peter was amazing but then all the drama started. Let me just tell you that I understand Lara Jean’s jealousy towards Gen. If I was 16 years-old and my boyfriend spent so much time with is ex-girlfriend I was going to feel like Lara Jean but sometimes she was the one creating the problems. If you are with your boyfriend please don’t start thinking and talking about his ex. It’s stupid. This was part of the drama on this book but to add even more John Ambrose McClaren, one of the guys that Lara Jean wrote a letter, appeared. This means that this book didn’t have a love triangle but instead it had a love square. More DRAMA. While I’m saying all this about this book I actually enjoyed it but not as much as the first one and I think that the ending was way too fast. But let’s talk about my favorite thing in this book: Kitty. I loved Kitty and I would love to have her a my little sister so Jenny Han, if you want to I would love to read a book about Kitty when she’s older.
Overall, this was a cute and fast-paced book. While I would prefer this as a stand-alone I still enjoyed it and I loved to read about these characters again. If you loved To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and if you like cute contemporary books you should read this one.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
