This amazing postcard comes from the Goodreads Postcard Exchange Group that I am into. Each month, we send a postcard to one person from the group, and the June theme was: Where do you usually read?

Thank you Manisha, for sending me this amazing postcard!

Releasing the Demons (The Order of the Senary #1) – L.D. Rose [BOOK REVIEW]

Blaze Knight has been though hell and back, but the nightmares aren’t over yet!

book

This might be one of the best vampire books I have read. The story behind it is different than any other vampire books I’ve read before.
When you combine vampires and humans with superpower abilities – you get the hybrids that are in this book.

There are six ”brothers” who are vampire hybrids and they all have different abilities.
This book focuses on Blaze, who went through seven months of hell.
His tattoos can’t cover the scars he will have for life. But meeting the love of his life might make his burden weigh less – or will it?

This is a story that will bring you on the edge and make you bite your nails constantly – but it is definitely worth reading it!

A huge thank you to the author L.D. Rose for sending me a copy of this amazing book for my honest review. If you think you might like this book, you can check out the rest of her amazing books as well – www.writerldrose.comย .

Halloween Is Coming!

Boo! Halloween is coming!

This will be my first real celebration of Halloween since I moved in the UK. I didn’t celebrate it last year, but now I have moved into a house on the ground floor, and I can actually put decorations and greet little scary kids, so I am really looking forward to the 31st of October.

Do you have any tips for me, as a first time celebrator?

In the postcard that Anouk sent me from The Netherlands, he writes that he hates Halloween, because he is easily scared.

And here I am, not really sure what to do, and how to properly celebrate it. I shall put decorations in front of my house, and a pumpkin, which symbolizes that you want kids knocking on your door. I have already bought candies and a lot of little surprises, and I am all hyped up, even though there are 3 weeks to go until Halloween actually comes.

What is your experience with Halloween? I am looking forward to hearing your answers ๐Ÿ™‚

The Art Of Carl Larsson In A Postcard

postcard
Brita in the drawing room – painted by Carl Larsson

When the love for receiving postcard will combine with the love of art, this is what happens.

It makes my day!

For those that are not aware, Carl Larsson was a Swedish painter, mostlyย painting using oils,ย watercolors, andย frescoes.ย He considered his finest work to beย Midvinterblotย (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large painting now displayed inside theย Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts.

The postcard that I have received is called Brita in the Drawing Room.

I really love it and this that it is ahead of its time.

Suzy Spitfire Kills Everybody – a book review

Thank you Joe Canzano for sending me this beautiful book!

The name of the book is: ”Suzy Spitfire Kills Everybody” – Joe Canzano and you can find it on this link.

First of all – this book is AWESOME. The character of Suzy is described so perfectly well, and it fits her role and it reminds me of myself so much, that I was laughing at scenes in the book where I probably shouldn’t.

The scenes are amazing. This book takes you to an incredible adventure in time and space, introducing a new world, different than the one you are used to, and it takes you all the way in – leaving you breathless until the last page.

It is a story where Suzy kills her uncle and she’s not wanted on Earth. But soon she finds out that her father has been killed, and he has created something that endangers the whole universe. With a great motive behind her, she is determined to find that little something and save the world? Or is she?

With the great help of many others that she is not sure whether they’re trustworthy until the very end, she goes into this adventure, ready to lose it all, just for a very strong motive of unconditional love – even if it means her death.

Definitely a must read for every single person that loves fantasy, mystery, adventure, romance, thriller. It is all well put into this incredible book.

What is your favourite book?
