Book Buying Ban week #3 and karma is a bitch

Hello, my dear readers!
First of all...
Go have a look at Obvious State, Etsy based shop of graphic designer, Evan Robertson, who transforms literary quotes into these fantastic drawings.

Secondly, book bloggers are still being prosecuted for just having their opinions and ideas of free speech by the site that shall not be named. 

I was really saddened on Saturday when I found out that yet another huge and successful book blog owned by a very nice couple, Hippies, Beauty and Books... was shut down because Amanda and her husband didn't think it was worth it to keep getting harassed anymore.

I'm not surprised that members of society where it's alright to prosecute a young girl for this and fine her $45, 000 can engage in behaviour like that. 
I usually avoid vitriol, don't watch TV and read newspapers, maybe that's why small things upset me so much and really make me want to live as much off the grid as possible.

People, be good to each other. Every time you send a hateful message or troll a celebrity for daring to live their lives like we do, you know? without asking your opinion first, remember this.
Karma is a bitch.
It's all gonna come back to you three times worse than you're dishing out.

On that cheerful note, let's get back to my books, shall we?


Reading highlights of the week?

Everything else was really pleasant, but I breezed through Keeping Secret and really loved it. If you haven't read this series yet, please do! A real gem of urban fantasy and so easy to read.

Received for review:

I had a surprise package from Quercus because I reviewed the first book last year. Oh well, this doesn't set me back too much.

Total score:
78 books (13 for review)

I'm still doing well me thinks.

This week beautiful lady Joy from Joyous Reads featured my bookshelves on her Shelf Envy , so if you are interested, come and have a look.

Fab Kimberly from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer also wrote to me asking if I want her to create a button for me, she then sent me an HTML code which I never would have been able to come up with myself. I'm surrounded by wonderful people, folks, for which I'm profoundly grateful.
Thank you!

Here is my button for those of you interested.

Last bit of news, promise!
My weight loss is going well. Yoga five days a week makes me feel fantastic and more upbeat. Last week I lost 2 kg and still staying the same weight this week. Yay for that ;)

Hope you all having a lovely weekend,
lots of love and hugs!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
