Irredeemably Addicted

Welcome to my favorite space on the web filled with challenges, all kinds of lists, an array of genres, and the words and worlds created by all the amazing authors displayed below.

Admission is FREE so what are you waiting for?! Come on in and feel at ease to check out my stash!!! You are more than welcome to borrow some books, stack them on your TBR list, without forgetting to put everything back on its place before you leave. And please, for the love of creativity, DO NOT STEAL ANYTHING!!!
*clears throat* - -- moving on...

Hours and hours of fun are completely guaranteed **

As many of you do, I also love to receive recommendations of any books you think may fit my shelves, so feel free to post or reply at any time.
PLEASE NO SPOILERS

FYI
The following Safety Measures may be Advised and encouraged but not required while reading:

1. a cozy blanket depends on the weather
2. a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, tea, water or any drink of your choice again; depends on the weather
3. a notebook, pencil or pen the use of any electronic devices is not recommended. A significant drop on attention spam has been reported
4. cell phone or camera to take those cool pictures of the books while reading is a MUST but only if kept on airplane or do not disturb mode to avoid any distractions
5. reading glasses or contact lenses if necessary
6. in the event of impromptu, unsolicited or unwelcomed interruptions, the use of a polite yet menacing DO NOT DISTURB look will be encouraged.
7. the most important one; Have FUN and DO NOT STOP Reading!!!

***Exceptions to #7 is the Required use of a bookmark in the events of bathroom breaks, the need to feed yourself or others (including your pets), and the well-deserved sleep time (even though most of the times you just NEED to read only one more chapter). In such cases use an alarm clock to control the urge of the dreaded all-nighters.

Disclaimer:
**Safe return to the realm of the living may NOT be guaranteed.
Adverse reactions may include: losing track of time, journaling, the awakening of your senses, an increase in your vocabulary/IQ, and other positive changes (less time spent on the internet or binge-watching Netflix, is most likely to occur but not yet proved).

Important Disclaimer:
I reserve the right to edit, exchange or delete any book from my stash at any time.
Hoarders, kleptomaniacs or open drinks are NOT welcome by any circumstances.

To sum up; have fun and leave a comment if you like!

**List Under Construction**


JANUARY 
🗸 Winter Wonderland:
 
Focusing on ‘wonderland’, read a book set in a truly wonderful place- somewhere you’ve always thought was beautiful, somewhere with a wonderfully rich culture, a snowy setting, or maybe even a magical realm. It’s your interpretation, so have fun with it.

FEBRUARY 
🗸 Seeing Red:

Read a book with the word ‘red’ in the title OR a book with a red-ish cover. Bonus if it has both.

MARCH
🗸 Sub-Genre Sound Off:

Choose a sub-genre of your favorite genre and read a book from it. Make sure you mention the sub genre you chose in your review. (Ex. Sub Genres of Fantasy could be Magical Realism, Fairytale Retellings, or Epic Fantasy to name just a few.)

APRIL
🗸 Classics or Currents:

Read a book published before the year you were born (classic-ish) OR a book published between April 2019 and April 2020 (current.)

MAY
🗸 Author Introduction:

Read a book written by an author who you’ve never read anything by. Bonus if its been on your TBR for more than a year.

JUNE
🗸 Name or Number:

Read a book in which a name OR a number is part of the title. Bonus if the title includes both a name and a number.

JULY
🗸 Around or Out of this World:
 
Read a book set in a country other than the one you live in OR written by an author who is from a country other than your own OR read a book that takes place in space or on another planet.

AUGUST
🗸 Creature Feature:
Read a book that includes a creature of some kind on the cover or in the story. Cat, dog, dragon, werewolf – mythical or real – find a book that features a creature.

SEPTEMBER 
🗸 When Text Just Isn’t Enough:

Read a book that includes more than just text. Maybe it’s a map, a family tree, illustrations, documents like emails or letters- something else that helps to paint the picture.

OCTOBER
🗸 Thrills and Chills:

Ghost stories, haunted houses, true crime, murder mysteries, a thriller keeping you on the edge of your seat- it’s up to you!

NOVEMBER
🗸 Dynamic Duos:

Read a book with a couple of characters that make the perfect pair whether in business or in love. (Ex. Sherlock & Holmes, Elizabeth & Darcy)

DECEMBER 
🗸 Sugar, Spice, Everything Nice:

Holiday or winter themed reads, love stories and romances, happy cries, comedies; round out your year with a truly feel good read.
