Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR

No comments :

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Brooke and The Bookish. This week's topic is top ten books on my fall TBR. This topic is kind of tricky to me as where I live, there's no fall season. I live in a country where we only have two seasons. So I've never experienced the cold but cozy weather, the seasonal pumpkin-everything, or even Halloween. Still, I'd like to set a TBR for the next three months.

I wake up.
Immediately, I have to figure out who I am. It's not just the body - opening my eyes and discovering whether the skin on my arm is light or dark, whether my hair is long or short, whether I'm fat or thin, boy or girl, scarred or smooth. The body is the easiest thing to adjust to, if you're used to waking up in a new one each morning. It's the life, the context of the body, that can be hard to grasp.
Every day I am someone else. I am myself - I know I am myself - but I am also someone else.
It has always been like this.

[Review] Nocturnes - Kazuo Ishiguro

Title of Book: Nocturnes: Five Stories Of Music And Nightfall
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Publication Year: 2009
Language: English
Format: Hardback
Pages: 211

In a sublime story cycle, Kazuo Ishiguro explores ideas of love, music and the passing of time. From the piazzas of Italy to the Malvern Hills, a London flat to the 'hush-hush floor' of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, the characters we encounter range from young dreamers to cafe musicians to faded stars, all of them at some moment of reckoning. Gentle, intimate and witty, this quintet is marked by a haunting theme: the struggle to keep alive a sense of life's romance, even as one gets older, relationships flounder and youthful hopes recede.

Top 5 Favorite Things About Blogging

Hello! Top 5 Wednesday is a feature that was created by Lainey over at gingerreadslainey. It's been a while since I last doing Top 5 Wednesday and I miss it. There's also a goodreads group for Top 5 Wednesday if you want to know more about the feature. This week's topic is top five favorite things about booktubing/blogging. I've been book blogging for about two years and I enjoyed every second of it. Though I admit there are times when I was on a book blogging slump, especially when the lazy part of me took over. Still, it has been a fun experience maintaining this blog.

Actress Libby Lomax has retreated into the world of classic movies, where the immortal lives of her favourite screen goddesses seem to offer so much more in the romance department than her own life.
After a terrible day on set where she embarrasses herself in front of the entire cast and worst of all, it’s sexy bad-boy star, Dillon O’Hara, she plonks herself down on her battered couch to watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the trillionth time.
Suddenly, Libby is astonished to find screen icon Audrey Hepburn, complete with little black dress, trademark sunglasses and vintage cigarette holder, sitting beside her and proffering advice.
Has Libby got what it takes to turn her life from a Turkey to a Blockbuster? Perhaps with a little bit of Audrey Hepburn magic, she might just pull it off…
A Night In With Audrey Hepburn is the first in a series of three books following the life and loves of Libby Lomax as she blossoms from Z-lister to A-lister and all of the stages in between with a little bit of help from some very special friends.

[Review] Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon

Title of Book: Everything, Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Publisher: Delacorte
Publication Date: 1st September 2015
Language: English
Format: ARC
Pages: 320

This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
