JULY Book Bonanza

July is month of holiday. I, myself, went on two this year. A music calling to a slovakian music festival back in my home town and lovely sunny holiday with my bestie  in Corfu. But of course, as you all know me I had to purchase some books (because I have an obsession or maybe it's a problem - I don't know...) So here are the titles I bought in this gorgeous sun-filled month.


GOING VINTAGE by Lindsey Leavitt

Mallory loves her boyfriend and she's sure he loves her back. Until she accidentally logs on to his Authentic Life profile, that is.

He's been cheating on her... online!

Mallory's relationship is ruined and the internet is to blame.

And then Mallory finds a list, written by her grandma as a teenager. Things were so much simpler in the 1960s - it was all about sewing dresses and planning dinner parties.

Maybe it's time for Mallory to go vintage....


Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.

Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friend, the world of sex, drugs and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on th sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers and unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

I do own this book as an E-book, but you all know that this is my #1 book which changed my life and therefore it came to me only naturally to buy the paperback copy as well so I can share it with my friends. I love love this book and would recommend to anyone to read it. It taught me a new perspective to how to live my life.


In ten powerful stories, Victoria Hislop takes us through the streets of Athens and into the tree-lined squares of Greek villages. As she brings to life their distinct atmosphere, she creates a host of unforgettable characters, from a lonesome priest to battling brothers, and from an unwanted stranger to a groom troubled by music and memory.

These bittersweet tales of love and loyalty, of separation and reconciliation, captured in Victoria Hislop's unique voice, will stay with you long after you reach the end.

THIS IS HOW IT ENDS by Kathleen MacMahon

This is when it begins: Autumn, 2008.

This is where it begins: The coast of Dublin.

This is why it begins:

Bruno, an American, has come to Ireland to search for his roots. Addie, an out-of-work architect, is recovering from heartbreak while taking care of her infirm father. When their world collide, they experience a connection unlike any they've previously felt, but soon their newfound love will be tested in ways they need imagined possible.

This is how it ends....

INFERNO by Dan Brown

'Seek and ye shall find.' With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital be with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings.

A treat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of Florence. Only Langdon's knowledge of the hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers.

With only few lines from Dante's dark and epic masterpiece, Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance - sculptures, paintings, buildings - to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from terrifying threat...

Set against an extraordinary landscape inspired by one of history's most ominous literary classics, Inferno is Dan Brown's most compelling and thought-provoking novel yet, a breathless race-against-time thriller that will grab you from page one and not let you go until you close the book.

I have already read 2 out of 5 of these books and currently in 1/3 of This is how it Ends. I am saving Inferno for last. I hope that I won't be disappointed like with the last of Dan Brown's book LOST SYMBOL. Fingers crossed lovelies and Happy Reading!!
