Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s post is all about books that awaken the travel bug in me. Now, I did a post on travel locations books helped put on my travel bucketlist already earlier this year, so this time I wanted to get more specific and talk about books set in my current number one dream travel destination: Japan.

While I’m hoping of travelling to Japan myself some day, in the meantime I have these books to keep me dreaming!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

March 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my March wrap up!

March was busy busy for me, which means there was not a lot of rime for fun, but I did get to read some amazing books, saw some great TV AND got to listen to a ton of amazing songs, so overall March wasn’t too bad. My blogging suffered a bit though, so for that I apologize and hope I’ll be back with more posts, comments and bloghopping next month! Until then, here’s what I did in March:

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today I’m putting all my shame out there and presenting you with the twelve books I totally meant to get to in 2017, but didn’t… (and the worst part is that I had to cut down this list so badly just to get to only twelve… *nervous laughter*)

Winter is coming! And with that comes also: a Winter TBR. Which, in my case, is a lot of my rest of the year TBR which I haven’t gotten to yet. Plus a few new releases. But really, given my major reading slump which lasted most of summer and fall, it’s mostly backlist on this TBR.

Let’s get to it!

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about my favorite season: FALL. And what goes perfectly with fall? That’s right, reading! So naturally my fall TBR is huge and intimidating. But here’s the top ten books I’m planning to tackle first this fall!

(Sidenote: as this post goes live, I’ll ironically be enjoying my last taste of summer for this year while I’m on holiday in Tenerife (and hopefully getting a lot of reading in…). So please excuse me if I’m a bit late in replying to comments and bloghopping – I promise I’ll catch up soon!)

Most Anticipated Books For The Rest Of 2017 {Top Ten Tuesday}

170530 TTT Most Anticipated 2017

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about my most anticipated releases for the rest of 2017!

Also, it came to my attention that, while I had about a hundred anticipated releases for the beginning of the year, I have suspiciously few anticipated books for the rest of 2017. So this begs the question: did most authors just already release their books in the beginning of the year or have I grown out of touch with upcoming releases?

If the answer is the latter, then this topic has a perfect timing because now I can browse everyone else’s posts for books to add to my TBR. So thanks in advance to my fellow bloggers, and in the meantime, enjoy my list!
