SUMMER SCHEDULE:
I am extremely busy on the farm right now, peeps (you can find what I'm doing through FB page Olives and Acorns) and wilting in the terrible heat. As a consequence, my reading schedule suffered and while reviews will continue trickling in, normal schedule won't resume until September. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Book Buying Ban Week #6

Hello, me dears!
How are you today?
For me this week was a-freaking-mazing despite us being broke after our venture to Scotland :D

First of all I broke my book buying ban for a very worthy cause.


I first heard of Abbie Gibbs through this article.
'I read the Twilight saga and did really enjoy it. I loved the romantic element between the human and the vampire.
'I wanted to do something like that but it wasn't bloody and edgy enough for me so I thought I would sit down and do my own thing and that's what I did.

Abbie started writing her own saga on Wattpad at 14 and by the time she was 17 she gained 16 million views, until HarperCollins hadn't snagged her and her first book was born.

I was so insanely curious, that I've pre-ordered the book for a miniscule price of £1.99 on Kindle($2.99 in US) and started reading as soon as it got downloaded...

I finished The Dark Heroine yesterday and it was glorious. Dark, very gory, snarky and vicious... Ain't no Edward and Bella, I guarantee. It's twisted, involves magic, different dimensions and prophecies. It also has very British voice which made me snort with laughter quite a few times.

I will be reviewing the book very soon, but I can tell you straight away that Abbie is an author to watch, despite couple of messy moments in the plot.
Really gorgeous book, go get it!

Back to normal, here is what I've read this week:

Not as many as I've wanted as I've been reading quite a few books at a time, so hopefully I'll do better next week.

Total left: 70 books (8 for review).

I also found two gorgeous videos by Delilah, a British singer I really love, and wanted to share them with you.
 This one actually suits so much to Kaspar from The Dark Heroine...
At last, here is an awesome infographic on Fifty Shades of Grey courtesy of Neomam.com via Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, which made me giggle.
Click on it to enlarge and enjoy! Happy Sunday!
Ciao!

In event 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
