April will be such a fun month for me! I’ve never been so excited for a month with no holidays during the week haha 😀 So yes, I’ll have to work a full month, and I have basic, yet fun, things planned like going to the hairdresser for another ombré look or plan-less weekends for my pj’s looks. BUT, I also have two events I’m going to!! (I apologize in advance for all the capslock). But first my tbr!
What I plan to read
- Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas (already 3/4 through)
- Alex + Ada, Vol. 3 by Jonathan Luna
- Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
- Rat Queens, Vol 1 by Kurtis J. Wiebe& Roc Upchurch
- Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- Ms Marvel, Volume 2 by G. Willow Wilson
- The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (as audiobook)
I have also received a sneak peek of The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead, so I’ll probably read this one in between too! That being said, I don’t know if I’ll actually follow this tbr, but those books are definitely high on my tbr! I hope I’ll also find a good graphic novel series to read! Again, if you have similar series to SAGA, please let me know! 😉
FACTS 2016 – Spring Edition
If you’re reading this post on Sunday April 5th, then yes, I’m actually at the FACTS RIGHT NOW! FACTS is a Belgian ComicCon in Ghent. I’ve been hearing about this comic con for a few years now, but today is actually the first time I’m going. I have been super pumped for this and I cannot wait to share pictures afterwards! You might want to check out my twitter and instagram accounts for live posts! 😉
Oh right, I forgot to mention the best thing: I’M DOING MY FIRST COSPLAY!!!! Doing one has always been on my bucket list. And today, I’ll be showing my badass side by dressing up as a Shadowhunter. I’m not going as a specific character, though. Just me, all black with red hair extensions and tattoos drawn with eyeliner haha 😀 I swear, it sounds weirder than it looks! If I have time before leaving to the con, I’ll be updating this post and adding a picture here below of my complete look! And otherwise, check my twitter @melissa_reads!
Yesssss…. I’m also going to my first bookish event!! I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS! I’ve had my ticket for months already and I cannot believe this is actually happening in three weeks *dances around happily*
Alright alright, let me tell you more about this event! This little festival is a first edition if I’m correct. It will be happening in The Netherlands (the only time I won’t mind the 2h30 car drive haha). On the schedule is: author interview, picture with all authors, lunch, goodie bag, workshops (I’m following one about booktube!) and so much other activities!
AND GUESS WHO’S COMING?! TAHEREH MAFI, STEPHANIE PERKINS AND RANSOM RIGGS!!! Say whaaaat!!!! Becky Albertalli and two other authors are coming too, but I don’t really know them. I am just super excited for Stephanie and Tahereh! ♥
You can probably expect a post of this event afterwards!
I hope you enjoyed this post! What are you going to read this month? Any bookish events you’re going to? Let’s talk in the comments 😉
