The Gilded Ones (Deathless #1) by  Namina FornaThe start of a bold and immersive West African-inspired, feminist fantasy series for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and Black Panther. In this world, girls are outcasts by blood and warriors by choice.

Sixteen-year-old Deka lives in fear and anticipation of the blood ceremony that will determine whether she will become a member of her village. Already different from everyone else because of her unnatural intuition, Deka prays for red blood so she can finally feel like she belongs.

But on the day of the ceremony, her blood runs gold, the color of impurity--and Deka knows she will face a consequence worse than death.

Then a mysterious woman comes to her with a choice: stay in the village and submit to her fate, or leave to fight for the emperor in an army of…

Happy Monday!
Instead of a Heart to Heart Mondays post, today I decided to do the International blogger tag, created by Booktuber Daniela In Pragueand adapted for blogs byChelle’s Book Ramblings . This is also a good replacement for a Heart to Heart Mondays post. 1) Where are you from and what is your native language or languages?I am from Croatia and my native language is Croatian.2) In what languages do you read books?I read mostly in english, sometimes in croatian.3) Are there Book Blogs, Booktubers, Bookstagrammers in your native language and if so, what is the community like?Yes, there are a lot of them, much more than when I first started blogging. Also, there was no Instagram then. That community is wonderful, I follow a lot of them on their blogs, Instagram or Facebook. I am still trying to find croatian booktubers, though. There are links on the left sidebar to some of my favorite croatian bloggers, check them out.4) If there is a Blogging Community in your native language, wh…

Act Your Age, Eve Brown (The Brown Sisters #3) by  Talia Hibbert


In Act Your Age, Eve Brown the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard—literally.

Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her life always goes horribly wrong—so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It's time for Eve to grow up and prove herself—even though she's not entirely sure how…

Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry—and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple-haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to intervie…

Heart to Heart Mondays (12): Books I would love to read but they intimidate me

Slika
Hello! Happy Monday! 

I was away on vacation for two weeks and I am a big procrastinator so I did not have any scheduled posts for that time. So sorry about that. But now I am slightly recharged, a little bit rested and can devote my time to blogging again. This weeks topic is Books that intimidate me. There are a lot of books I would like to read, some I own, but I am scared to pick them up because of how many pages they are or I am afraid of having my hopes for the book dashed or the books were so hyped up or some other reason I cant think of right now.
   I have on my TBR these big fantasy series, like Discworld and Wheel of time, where a TV show is coming soon so I would like to be able to get through them at some point before that. Or Dune, before the movie.
   Or, in the case of IT, I am really scared of clowns but I would really like to read the book.

Here are some books that intimidate me:




What do you think about the books that intimidate me? Which books intimidate you? Do we h…

Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson



Korey Fields is dead.

When Enchanted Jones wakes with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one—the police and Korey’s fans included—has more questions than she does. All she really knows is that this isn't how things are supposed to be. Korey was Enchanted’s ticket to stardom.

Before there was a dead body, Enchanted was an aspiring singer, struggling with her tight knit family’s recent move to the suburbs while trying to find her place as the lone Black girl in high school. But then legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots her at an audition. And suddenly her dream of being a professional singer takes flight.

Enchanted is dazzled by Korey’s luxurious life but soon her dream turns into a nightmare. Behind Korey’s charm and star power hides a dark sid…

Heart to Heart Mondays (11): Favorite musicians, albums and songs

Slika
Hello! Happy Monday!
















Like I wrote in previous Heart to Heart, today I will be talking about my musical favorites.
   I always loved music, since I was very young but, of course, my music taste is vastly different today than it was then. In the 90s I was a big Britney Spears fan.. And boy bands were huge for me. I was watching and listening to MTV and Viva a lot. 
   That all changed when I first heard Crawling by Linkin Park on MTV in 2002. I started to search for  more bands similar to them and then branching out into ex-yu rock. In 2003. , when Bring me to life by Evanescence was first released, my love for alternative genres of music was sealed.
   For years I refused to listen to any pop and similar genres, I was to narrow minded, but for the last few years, I slowly began to loosen up a little musically and listen to more pop, R & B and hip-hop. Today I listen to a lot of different genres, like: rock, symphonic metal, power metal, folk metal, gothic rock and metal, industria…
