Gone to Budapest, Will Be Back On May 7th

Hello my friends and other random visitors of my blog,

I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I will be going on a little trip, so there will be no blog posts until we get back. The only exception is Oxford Shadows blog tour post which is scheduled and ready to go on May 6th. Blogger do not fail me now. *stares at the blogger dashboard*

Where am I going? Budapest, Hungary. No special reason, just sight-seeing. I'll share some pretty pictures when I get back, I promise. :)

When will I be back? On May 7th.

So don't worry I am not ignoring you, I will answer all your comments and emails when I get back and will be back to my regular schedule.

xoxoxo

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Words or topics that instantly make me buy a book. I thought this would be an easy list to make but browsing through my read and own shelves made me realise some interesting things about my insta-buy preference if we ignore my insta-buy authors and focus on words in title or topic of book.

A Feast for a Bookworm

A Feast for a Bookworm is weekly post on Bookworm Dreams blog highlighting new books that I either purchased, borrowed, received for review or on a giveaway.

What is the difference between this post and In My Mailbox hosted by The Story Siren or Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews? None, whatsoever. But I thought that my post deserved some original title. And this is what my husband and me came up with. :)

So new books on the menu for me are:
