Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The goal is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If you would like to join in the fun just visit one of the host's blog for the rules.

Activity of the Week: Bookshelf Tour! Take us on a tour of your shelves.

I have four bookshelves in my room. Three are for my (YA) books and one for my studybooks.

I don't own a lot of physical books, since I mostly buy ebooks. Only my favourites I buy in physical form, keeps the shelves tidy:)


These are my books for my study English . Lots of heavy dictionaries and anthologies.


These are my three other shelves. You can see I love series! TMI, TID, HP, VA, THG, all on my shelves somewhere:)


My whole bookshelf :) Still some room for new favourites.

You can follow me via GFC, email, Bloglovin, and of course via Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads (see sidebar).

Impostor - Susanne Winnacker [Review]


Title: Impostor
Author: Suzanne Winnacker
Publisher: Razorbill
Series: Variants #1
Release Date: May 28th 2013
Pages: 274
Rating: ★★★
Can Tessa pose as Madison . . . and stop a killer before it’s too late? 

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again. 

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep. Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

Top Ten Tuesday #12 - School Wishlist


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.

This week: Top Ten Books That You Wish Were Taught In Schools

I never read much books for English in high school, I hope that's going to change now that I'm going to university to study English:) I like classics, also the ones that are usually taught in schools, but I think some YA books would also be awesome to read in class. They have great ideas and morals to think about and can teach teens a lot. 

Dystopians

  • The Hunger Games
  • Unwind
  • Partials
  • Delirium 
  • Uglies
  • Divergent
Good dystopians make you think a lot, because the writers used things/problems from our society. This makes it quite realistic and makes you think we should do something about it before it goes too far (like environmental things, war, crazy science etc.) That is why I like dystopians and why they are great to teach in schools!

Fantasy

  • Percy Jackson
Awesome Greek mythology lesson!

  • Harry Potter
In these books you learn about good vs evil, friendship, love and much more (and they are just awesome).

Contemporary

  • Looking for Alaska
Great book about death and learning to deal with the choices you make.
  • Perks of being a Wallflower
This book is a realistic projection of an average insecure high school teen and discusses a lot of familiar problems.
