13 questions with Arnulfo Cantarero!

Hello there! I hope you are having a nice day!

Arnulfo Cantarero with his book

As for me. Well, I know I had to post this interview yesterday. And yet, as I mentioned in my IG story last night – it was a really hard day, so this post had to wait.

For now I won’t tell you much about Arnulfo Cantarero, but you must know that he is amazing human being and that English is a second language for him just like for me. So, I think it’s really impressive that Arnulfo was able to write and publish a book in a language that he learned. You can know more while reading these 13th questions I had for him 😉

What can you expect on Tuesday

Hello my dearest book addicts!

Yesterday I posted my first interview with an author J.F.Johns. I know I have a lot to improve, so you opinion matters a lot to me. So don’t be shy and comment whatever is on your mind. Because from now on you will get an interview every Tuesday, until none of the authors will want to talk with me! But let’s hope that won’t happen 😅

 Until then I welcome everyone to participate in these interviews. I have 13 questions for every author, but you can add some of yours. Next Tuesday I will post an interview with Arnulfo Cantarero, author of sci-fi story “Emotions“. So, if you have any questions for him – feel free to ask in the form bellow or contact me via email myreadingtim@gmail.com 😉

13 questions with J.F.Johns!

Hello there!

This is my first EVER interview with an author!

Jazmin Fernandez Johns

And not with any author, but with a really sweet and kind person J.F.Johns. Did you knew her full name is Jazmin Fernandez Johns? Also that by age 23 this girl have accomplished some impressive stuff? But you can found that information in the author introduction on Goodreads. The most important thing for us is that Jazmin published not one or two books in the past year, but three! Three dystopia books that must be read! She even got a tattoo to honor writing and books. But for now let’s get to the 13 questions that I had for her 😉

Something new and with my favourite number!

Hello my dearest, sweetest people, who still remember this blog or just found it!

I have been away from this place for quite some time, because I was thinking about changing to some other. However, like you see, I have decided to stay and wake this baby up. I love blogging! I prefer Instagram & Goodreads (I’m always active there), but I need more place to express myself. So, here I am again 😊 

I plan on several new things that would make blog more interesting and active. First of them actually even includes my favorite number, which is “13” for many years now 😎 To put shortly, it will be interviews with published authors and I have named the column “13 questions”.

Some details that might be interesting at the moment:

  • Most of the questions will be the same with every author, but some will be changed every time.
  • You will actually get a change to ask something as well. I will publish the name of the author a week before the interview will reach the daylight. In that time I will accept your questions and give them to the authors.
  • Interviews will be published every week + they will be found under tag #13questions & on the drop menu of “Bookish adventures” in the place named “Interviews”.

For know this is all the news. It’s really exciting for me, authors that I have reached out to seems to feel the same way. So, I just hope that you will enjoy this as much as we do! 💝

The last thing to say is that the first author is J.F.Johns and first interview will be published today or tomorrow. It’s not the week I promisedon’t, but only because it’s first time.

Have any more questions?  Go for it and ask 😉

Book review: “Rarity” by D.A.Roach

25674851Title: Rarity
Author: D.A.Roach
Genre: Romance / Young Adult / Contemporary
Series:
Publicated: June 5th, 2015 by Limitless Publishing
Pages: 180 (Paperback)
Book: Provided by the author
My rating: 7/10
Reading time: 2016 June 14 – July 6

SYNOPSIS:
Brogen Mathers can’t deal with teen drama… As an empath, she is constantly bombarded with other people’s energies. Despite coping techniques taught by her psychologist mother, it’s often too much to bear, forcing her to avoid most activities a typical high school junior would enjoy. Jay Wilken won’t let his past define him… A dead mother and an alcoholic father brought Jay to Stanton, but he doesn’t want pity. His good looks, charisma, and friendly nature quickly win over the whole student body, but he has his eye on one girl…Brogen. Brogen can’t believe anyone could be so genuinely nice. It has to be an act, right? But when Jay literally saves her from deadly jaws, she has to admit he’s exactly what he appears, and he’s worth risking the potential emotional upheaval. “Drama” might as well be Becca Grant’s middle name… Another newcomer to Stanton, Becca’s blonde beauty and abundant attitude shoots her straight to the top of the popularity charts—and she believes Jay belongs right there beside her. Accustomed to getting exactly what she wants, she launches a relentless mean-girl campaign to shake up Brogen and claim Jay for her own. Everything changes with a devastating diagnosis… When Jay learns he has a rare and potentially fatal disorder, he keeps it secret and begins to push Brogen away to spare her future pain—which is exactly the sort of opening Becca is waiting for. As Jay’s well-meaning deception unravels, Brogen realizes there is much more than her heart at stake… But how far is she willing to go to fight for someone she loves?

2017… Let’s hope this year will be better.

Hello 2017 & book lovers from all around the world!

I can even tell how hard was 2016 for me. I dropped out of the university, got a hard job,

lost few very close friends (still wish the best for them) and I was just a mess. I tried to be all over the place and I failed at everything. My reading game was horrible, so was all others my hobbies. I even let my bookstagram down, which is a big thing, because I love book community in Instagram. But that was last year and today is next. This year I won’t make promises, because I’m not sure I will keep them. But I will try to be as active as it will be possible. Also, my reading goal for 2017 is only 25 books, but it’s better to succeed at small one than fail with big.

However, few ARC’s are waiting, so I will read and review those for sure. I want to work more with authors this year. So, some interviews will be posted on this blog. Also, I have one idea about working with some bookstagramers or book bloggers. But I can’t say much about that, because first I need to talk about it with some people 🙂

So, at the end I want to say one thing. That I hope this year will be much better for me and for all of you. I’m not only talking about books, but everything. Life is beautiful. We should love it more.

This blog isn’t dead just yet!

I thought it would be good to explain why I was MIA for probably more than two months.

I could make a long, boring list about the things why I didn’t post anything. But the main thing is the fact that I lost the joy of reading for a while. I mean, I still was able to write reviews of previous reads, but I didn’t felt like it. It’s really horrible of disappearing like this, blog is a huge responsibility. However, I wasn’t good for any use. But I tried to keep my Bookstagram account as active as I could 😉

The most important thing. I’m back!

I plan to read more, even I will start to work next Saturday. Also, I will write all reviews that I haven’t finished yet. Moreover, I will contact few authors and get ready some interviews for you, guys! So, it would be awesome, if you let me know in the comments few of the questions that you would like to know about any author in general 😉 I promise, I will ask some of them for sure.

So, this is it for this time. I’m sorry for being gone for so long. I hope I will get ready some new projects for you all soon!.

Book Review: “Love story” by Jennifer Echols

9470371Title: Love story
Author: Jennifer Echols
Genre: Romance / New Adult / Contemporary
Series:
Publicated: July 19th, 2011
Pages: 243 (Paperback)
Publisher: MTV Books
Book: Library book
My rating: 3/10
Reading time: 2016 April 29 – May 09

SYNOPSIS:
*spoilers alert*

She’s writing about him. He’s writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines…

For Erin Blackwell, majoring in creative writing at the New York City college of her dreams is more than a chance to fulfill her ambitions–it’s her ticket away from the tragic memories that shadow her family’s racehorse farm in Kentucky. But when she refuses to major in business and take over the farm herself someday, her grandmother gives Erin’s college tuition and promised inheritance to their maddeningly handsome stable boy, Hunter Allen. Now Erin has to win an internship and work late nights at a coffee shop to make her own dreams a reality. She should despise Hunter . . . so why does he sneak into her thoughts as the hero of her latest writing assignment?

Then, on the day she’s sharing that assignment with her class, Hunter walks in. He’s joining her class. And after he reads about himself in her story, her private fantasies about him must be painfully clear. She only hopes to persuade him not to reveal her secret to everyone else. But Hunter devises his own creative revenge, writing sexy stories that drive the whole class wild with curiosity and fill Erin’s heart with longing. Now she’s not just imagining what might have been. She’s writing a whole new ending for her romance with Hunter. . . . except this story could come true.
