T5W (2 August): Book Covers You’d Live In

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes and was created by Lainey at Gingerreadslainey. Here’s the Goodread’s group!


Ventos do Norte (Acacia #1) and Presságios de Inverno (Acacia #2), David Anthony Durham

Technically this is only one book, but here in Portugal they divided it in two (same with the rest of the series).

That palace and that ship… Yes, I would definitely like to live in that! Or in any of the portuguese covers for this series.


Nevernight, Jay Kristoff


I’ll be honest: I would love to live in any art by Kerby Rosanes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It blows my mind everytime.


The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet, Becky Chambers

This is my current read and I’d very much like to live in a place with this night sky view, pretty please!


With Malice, Eileen Cook

This is such a beautiful cover, I’d love to go to Italy someday! (And read this book while in there!)


Magnolia, Kristi Cook

This cover remainds me of the TV series Hart Of Dixie sooooo… Yeah, that’s pretty much the reason I choose this one 😂 I miss so much the people of that little town and their dramas!


T5W (26 April): Authors You Want To Read More From

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes and was created by Lainey at Gingerreadslainey. Here’s the Goodread’s group!


I finally decided to do a Top 5 Wednesday!! This is a great prompt for me, because I tend to read a book from one author, like it a lot, think a lot about reading more books by that author and then I always end up delaying it to read other books by other authors I didn’t yet had the opportunity to read… And with this, lets start!


  • Brandon Sanderson

Last summer I had the awesome idea and opportunity to buy the boxed set of the Mistborn trilogy. So I marathoned the 3 books and IT WAS THE BEST READING EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD. Since then I’ve been wanting to read more by Brandon Sanderson, particularly The Stormlight Archive series… And it still did not happen. I have high hopes for this summer, tho.


  • Patrick Rothfuss

Well, this is a special case. The last book I read in 2016 was The Name of the Wind and I loved it (ofc), but… Well, no one ready knows when the 3rd book will come out so I’ve been delaying reading The Wise Man’s Fear. But I really don’t think I can wait much longer. On the other hand my plan B for this situation is to read the 2nd book and then re-read the 2 books when I start to really miss the 3rd one 😂


  • Michael Crichton

I’ve read the portuguese editions of Timeline and Pirate Latitudes and I really liked the first one more than the other (but on the other hand… pirates). I don’ know how I still haven’t read Jurassic Park!!


  • Victoria Schwab

Have you ever deep down know that you just gonna love some books? Well, this happened to me with Brandon Sanderson and more recently with Victoria Schwab! In March I read A Darker Shade of Magic (in english but this is now published in portuguese!!) and I loved the magical writing style and how magical the story was. I’m pretty sure I can just buy the rest of the Shades of Magic series as well as The Archived and the Monsters of Verity duology!


  • John Scalzi

I’ve only read Old Man’s War by him, but I truly think I’ll really like his other books. The fun and light way he writes “”space sci-fi”” is something I need more in my life!


And what are the authors you need to read more from? I’d love to know! 😊
