Hello, my darling sweet peas!
This week is tiring, I’m telling you. I have so much work and stress and too little sleep and my back keeps hurting. I just wanna sleep for years.
But if I was really sleeping for years I would also miss out on a lot of blogging and that would be sad, wouldn’t it? I quite like it. And do you know what else I like? The WWW Wednesday.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
So far it’s really intriguing and delightful. I’m impressed by the world building and can’t wait to continue.
When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection. Oops. A nationwide hunt is called to find the cure, with competitors travelling the world for the rarest ingredients, deep in magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn.
Enter Samantha Kemi – an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. Sam’s family were once the most respected alchemists in the kingdom, but they’ve fallen on hard times, and winning the hunt would save their reputation. But can Sam really compete with the dazzling powers of the ZoroAster megapharma company? Just how close is Sam willing to get to Zain Aster, her dashing former classmate and enemy, in the meantime?
And just to add to the pressure, this quest is ALL OVER social media. And the world news.
No big deal, then.
I’m having so much fun with this book! I also feel like I’m learning something about Chinese culture.
When 12-year-old Billy Chan finds out his parents are sending him to a summer camp in middle-of-nowhere China he doesn’t know what to expect. There he meets fellow campers Dylan, Charlotte and Ling-Fei and together they stumble upon an age-old secret: four powerful warrior dragons, hidden deep within the mountain behind the camp. They have been trapped since an epic battle with the Dragon of Death and need the children’s help to set them free before terrible evil is unleashed on the earth. Billy and his friends must set off on a dangerous adventure that will take them to the heart of the Dragon Realm. But can they save the dragon and human worlds from destruction?
At the end of the month I fell into a little bit of a slump but I hope I can claw myself out of it again. There is one book I read.
It was not exactly what I was expecting but still fast-paced and action packed!

You know, my goal for this month is mostly to read a lot of books from my tbr and I haven’t really decided what’s gonna be next. But of course there is the BOTM for August from the bookclub. 😉
I’ve been wanting to read this, so I’m happy that it was chosen for this month. 🙂
Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She’s a Telepath—someone who hears the thoughts of everyone around her. It’s a talent she’s never known how to explain. Everything changes the day she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who appears out of nowhere and also reads minds. She discovers there’s a place she does belong, and that staying with her family will place her in grave danger. In the blink of an eye, Sophie is forced to leave behind everything and start a new life in a place that is vastly different from anything she has ever known. Sophie has new rules to learn and new skills to master, and not everyone is thrilled that she has come “home.”
There are secrets buried deep in Sophie’s memory—secrets about who she really is and why she was hidden among humans—that other people desperately want. Would even kill for.
