  2. I SO need to read Melina Marchetta books. I'm trying very hard to get my hands on them as I want to own physical copies of them. You've cleared quite a few books on your pile Tanja. :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. You really must read it and I support you in getting your own books. You won't regret it :) Thanks Janhvi :)

  3. I am horrible at writing these updates too, which is why I gave up on challenges altogether. It's not like my schedule leaves me time to read at will anyway.
    I hope you'll have at least some luck with Mara Dyer, I know most people didn't. Looking forward to your review.

    1. Yeah I know how it is, but I try to squeeze in as many books as I can. Because I'll never get to read them this way.
      I won't say it was a great read to me. I had some issues with it.
      Thanks :)

  4. I have soooo many books in my TBR pile, that I really drastically need to read more of them and stop buying new books...Which is probably the hardest challenge.

    1. It truly is! That's why I joined this challenge. Like Maja said my schedule is not really leaving me much space for the books I want to read :)

  5. I took on so many challenges this year but forgot about all of them, so I'm amazed that you've been keeping up with this so studiously, Tanja! Great work - keep it up!(:

  7. Looks like you are doing well with your reading! Congrats on getting so many read.

  8. I'm excited to see what you think of Mara Dyer Tanja! I loved that one so much, but it's definitely one that inspires conflicting opinions which I think makes things fun. I still really want to read Finnikin of the Rock. I've only read one Marchetta book and that's simply not enough!

    1. Sadly I wasn't so fascinated by it. :( You must read the whole series Jenny :)

      Izbriši
  9. I am horrible at these challenges so I don't sign up for them. Looks like you've accomplished a lot and the books you've read I either love or want to read. Congrats, Tanja! :)

    1. I really wanted to stick to this one and I'm glad I did :) Thanks Rachel :)

  10. I've tried doing these before but always fail. To much self induced pressure ack! Looks like you've been doing well though.

    1. LOL it's not pressure to me, just a reminder :)

      Izbriši
  11. Haha, I bet your memory skills can't beat mine. I procrastinate till I forget, which is the worst! At least you still remembered. :) You've reviewed a couple of books I really liked; I'll check them out right after this. I'm also super excited for your thoughts on MARA DYER. I can't say that I was a huge fan, but I did enjoy the book fairly well, so I hope you did, too.

    And gah. More FINNIKIN. I've been seeing that book around a lot, lately. Maybe it's a sign that I should stop putting it off and just get to it already!

    1. LOL It's actually nice to hear that someone is wore than me. My memory sucks, like big time! I did enjoy it somehow but some issues weren't to my liking.

      YOU SHOULD MEG! You really should :)

    1. That was the most challenging review to write. Thank you Ranu :)

  15. I really enjoyed the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer so I can't wait to see what you think. I also really liked You Against Me, but didn't care to much for the Dark Divine. Great post!

    1. LOL I do pretty much the same but I try to control it :)

      Izbriši
  18. Haha (: Well at least you read and review all the books you say you are going to! I am a whole other story :P

    OdgovoriIzbriši
  19. Ah, you read Maya Dyer!!! That's my all time favorite series! I can't wait to see you what you thought of it, hopefully it was good. I've been meaning to read You Against Me this whole year, I really need to get to it. Great job with the challenge, you're doing pretty good :)

  21. Good job!! I've been reading a bit slower these days because of work and school, but I'm trying to get through a lot in my TBR pile too.

    1. Me too, but I had enough free time during summer so I managed to accomplish my goal :)

      Izbriši
  22. You made a good dent in your TBR pile! Congrats :D Mine is pitiful. This month may just be the worst reading month for me EVER. (It's that bad.) *hides in shame*

    1. It's same for me, only I have read a lot during the summer so it's balanced :D
