REVIEW: Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton

Disclaimer! This review was first published on my Bulgarian blog HERE so that's why I am writing about an ARC of a book that's already come out.

An ARC has been kindly provided by Faber and Faber Ltd via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. (It was actually a wish come true. Literally.)

I didn't expect this to be as good as it was. It still had its flaws as the first book but it was even more enjoyable.

REVIEW: And I Darken by Kiersten White

I expected something a little more different but And I Darken is everything I could have ever wanted in a book even though there is no magic! (I thought it was fantasy.) I can't believe what an amazing book Kiersten White has written and I expect for the whole trilogy to ruin me emotionally and I will enjoy every second of my misery. This is the effect And I Darken had on me.

Bookhangover and How I Deal With It

Hello, fellas! In today's post I'm talking about book hangovers and my way to deal with them! 

📖 What is a book hangover?

You can see what the first picture says: Inability to start a new book because you’re still living in the last book’s world; but I did my research this time and decided to share some more definitions of it (they are copied from the websites I looked into).

1. When you've finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you're still living in the world of the book.

20 bookish facts about me

Hello, fellas! My name is Yuli Atta and welcome to my first blog in English- Damaged Pages. For my first blog post, I decided to do the 20 bookish facts about me post!

The facts aren't in a specific order.

1. I read about 100 books a year.

2. My favourite genre is fantasy.

3. Six years ago I had an obsession with vampires. Now, they are my guilty pleasure.

4. So is the occasional romance novel.

5. English isn't my first language but I prefer reading in English. (And have been for the last 5 years.)

6. My favourite authors of all time are Brandon Sanderson and Laurell K. Hamilton. I also love Rick
Riordan, Darynda Jones, Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo.

7. I love Harry Potter but I don't like J. K. Rowling's writing style.

8. I've read all of Twilight because I was curious about it. I'm not a fan anymore.

9. I've read 50 shades of Gray (just the first one), failed to see the romance.

10. The longest book I've read is Oathbringer (1243 pages ) by Brandon Sanderson, but the longest I own is It (1400+ pages) by Stephen King.

11. I really dislike YA fantasy but every time I decide to completely give up on it, I find a book like The Diabolic that can return my belief in the genre for just a little longer.

12. I haven't read Lord of the Rings and nor have I seen the films. But I plan to. #guilty

13. I love strong characters, no matter if they are main or side characters.

14. I am a beta reader.

15. I'd like to publish a book in the future.

16. I'm currently studying Journalism and Creative Writing at Falmouth University.

17. I have a Bookstragram and a Goodreads profile.

18. I rarely read something that isn't fantasy because I find such books lacking something. #sorry That's why I don't read thrillers. They aren't thrilling enough for me.

19. I love short chapters and absolutely hate long ones. Especially the ones above 30 pages.

20. I prefer paperbacks to hardcovers!

I'd be happy if you let me know about some of your bookish facts in the comments!
