In this past few months I started exchanging opinions and emojis with several bloggers and bookstagrammers and I couldn’t be more happy of belonging to this community. Before creating my blog I think that I felt quite alone in my reading world. Well, me and my mother would sporadically exchange bookish opinions while washing the dishes but I wanted more. I’m always wanting more. That is why I’m sure this will not be the last of this sort of posts. Down below I’ll be sharing my 5 favourite bookish blogs, but bloggers are being born everyday and I’m sure that soon I’ll have a few more favourites that I can’t avoid sharing with you.

I shall now present you, my dear bookworms, with my Top 5 books of this season – my 2016 autumn babies, as I like to call them :p

So, LET’S START THE COUNTDOWN!!!

“All The Light We Cannot See”, by Anthony Doerr, follows the story of Werner, a German orphan who dreams of becoming a scientist and escaping the horror of the mines that took his father, and Marie-Laure, a French girl that became blind when she was six-years-old and that learned her way around Paris by studying a wooden model of her neighbourhood, built by her father.
