A Feast for a Bookworm: Week #20 & #21 in 2013

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. :)

I managed to skip posting last week again. I would say I have a big pile of books to share, but comparing to last time this is small.

Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't but will it stop me from picking a book based on a pretty face alone? Probably not. Today, I scrolled through list of my read books and picked the prettiest covers to share with you.

 Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects
Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I usually pick books that have spirit of adventure, discovery and excitement or that promise to be fun reads. I read to relax myself and I almost always deliberately skip books dealing with abuse, grief or other subjects that will leave me troubled or sad. But nevertheless from time some tough subjects sneak up on me when I least expect them...

Budapest, or There and Back Again

There and Back Again will be a highly irregular feature here on my blog. Basically whenever I go somewhere on a trip, I will share pictures later and tell you a little bit about that place.

Budapest is capital of Hungary and one of the largest cities in south-eastern Europe. Since it's only 5 hour drive and one state border from our hometown, my husband and I decided that it was time to go and visit this beautiful city. We were there for 4 days and, although my feet are killing me from walking, we managed to see only a small part of wonderful sights that Budapest has to offer. So, we officially have an excuse why we have to come back again. ;)
