Had the honour of interviewing Kavita Kane, senior journalist and author of 4 books including her latest novel, 'Lanka's Princess'. The interview is up on my blog! (link in bio). .
So pretty picture not such a pretty book. This is the third bond book I have read and BY FAR was the worst . The sexism is HORRENDOUS and the fact that people actually could enjoy and agree with the ideas about women in this book makes me concerned for the attitudes they would have had in that era, and that some indeed do still have . And even if you ignore the sexism (I mean I am not sure how you could ) the pacing is dreadful . If it wasn't for the aesthetic of the picture thus book would not deserve these pretty items next to it :P

Didn't had much time for reading last couple days. But Saturday evening is meant exactly for that. And still enjoying this amazing book, wonderful language and interesting story line.

Pip pip, book fairies!

I was tagged by @voyage_reads to do the #readinghabits so here we goooo....🕺🏼
when do you read? On the train in the morning or before bed (and then ALLL NIGHT haha wheps)
Do you only read one book at once?
Yes, I used to read like 4 at a time when I was a teen which I think now means I have mixed memories of stories so I try not to any more (although I have 3 books half finished at the moment cos I get excited for new books so I guess I'm still doing that haha)
Where's your favourite place to read?
My bed or the couch with a blanket and pillow (COOSSY)
Do you watch the movie first or read the book first?
I try to read the book first but sometimes I don't realise it's a book! Wheps...
What book format do you prefer?
Hardbacks, although I read digitally for convenience cos them books be heavy son!
do you have an exclusive habit to reading?
Hmmm tricky one, other than maybe forgetting to eat?? I can go ages reading without eating or drinking, I just forget!
Do the covers of a series have to match? Absolutely it drives me crazy if they don't match!
A snappy camera fairy in the forest! One of my favourite photos I've taken even though it isn't really book related sorry not sorry!
Gestern Nacht habe ich Opal endlich beendet
Ich glaube Teil 3 war bisher der stärkste Band Und dieses Ende war wirklich gemein, aber trotzdem brauche ich jetzt erstmal eine andere Story. Lest ihr Reihen (sofern alle Teile vorhanden) am Stück oder legt ihr auch Pausen innerhalb ein?
On this lovely Friday, I cleaned and organized. I've been feeling a bit under he weather but things still gotta get done. We leave for the Florida Keys Sunday!! I can't wait for the beach and books days. •
How many books do you usually bring on vacation?

May 26th: Plot twist
For today's #booksandcupcakes challenge I picked out #TheMerciless by Danielle Vega, that has so many twists and turns it's crazy. ☠️
I'm supposed to be on a book buying moratorium but I couldn't resist finally picking up Empress of a Thousand Skies. One of my favorite things is lush titles like this. Do you guys have any favorite titles?
