Hello, guys!
It’s finally here. The cover reveal of “Lost In Darkness” by Emily Sowden – published by Oftomes Publishing.


“Lost in Darkness” is the second book in the trilogy Eldryn Chronicles. The first book is “Trapped In Silver”.

I’ll leave all the informations and synopsis about the first book for you guys to check it out!


AUTHOR: Emily Sowden
TITLE: Trapped In Silver (Eldryn Chronicles #1)
PAGES: 323 pages
PUBLISHER: Oftomes Publishing
FORMATS: Kindle and Paperback



Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.

The second book is coming out on February 6th, 2018.
I’m really excited for this upcoming release!


Waiting On Wednesday #4

Hello, everyone!
It’s time for another “Waiting on Wednesday” and this time, I’ll talk about a book from my favorite author of all times. Tahereh Mafi!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My choice for today it’s Furthermore’s sequel.



AUTHOR: Tahereh Mafi
TITLE: Whichwood (Furthermore #2)
PAGES: 368 pages
PUBLISHER: Dutton Books for Young Readers
RELEASE DATE: 14th November, 2017



Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

I’m really excited about this release! I loved “Furthermore” and gave it 5 stars. It was definetly one of my favorite reads of this year. I have high expectations for this one and knowing that it’s from Tahereh Mafi, I know I won’t be desapointed.


Waiting On Wednesday #3

Hello, everyone!
It’s Wednesday again, so let’s go to the book that I’m most excited about the release.


AUTHOR: Marissa Meyer
TITLE: Renegades
PAGES: 416 pages
PUBLISHER: Feiwel & Friends
RELEASE DATE: 7th November, 2017


Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Now, I need to be honest with you guys. I’ve only read one book by Marissa Meyers and that was “Cinder“. It’s been a long time and I enjoyed the book, but haven’t bought the sequels yet.
I’m curious and I constantly see amazing reviews about “The Lunar Chronicles”. I don’t know why I haven’t finished the series yet. I really liked of “Cinder” though.
I like the author’s writing and this new book sound really good.
Plus, I absolutetly love characters with powers. This one should be amazing as well, so I can’t wait to have my own copy.

Waiting on Wednesday #2

Hello, everyone!
I’m here to share with you one more book that I’m counting the days to the release date.

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.




AUTHOR: Stephanie Perkins
TITLE: There’s Someone Inside Your House
PAGES: 289 pages
PUBLISHER: Dutton Books for Young Readers
RELEASE DATE: 26th September, 2017


One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

International bestselling author Stephanie Perkins returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down.

I love Stephanie Perkin’s writing. It’s so clean, complex and full of details. The first story that I’ve read from her were “My True Love Gave To Me”. Her short story was one of my favorites.
“Anna and the French Kiss” is on my TBR for a really long time. I’ve read a few pages, but stopped, because I wanted to buy a physical copy. I hope I can fix this pretty soon and get to know more of her work.
Also, the cover and the synopsis of “There’s Someone Inside Your House” looks amazing.
I love this genre and books that make me guess who is the killer.
I’m so excited to find out what the author will bring us this time.

July TBR and Reading Marathon

Hello, readers!
My reading slump it’s almost gone and there’s a reading marathon happening this month. Can I hear an aleluia?
It seams that everthing it’s getting better now, even with the blog.

The reading marathon that I’m going to participate calls MLI 2017 (Maratona Literária de Inverno). It’s an brazilian reading marathon for this winter, hosted by an brazilian booktuber.
It’s two weeks long, starting on 16th of July.

This marathon has some challenges, so these are the books I’ve chosen:


Blue cover:By Your Side” by Kasie West
Under 200 pages:A Monster Calls” by Patrick Ness
Bought because of the cover:The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Read of the month: “Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer” by Rick Riordan

This is it! It’s not too much and most of the books are short, so maybe I’ll be able to read all of them without any problems.
I was really in need of a reading marathon. It’ll help me a lot!

What’s your plans for this month?

Waiting on Wednesday #1

Hello, everyone!
This is my first time participating on “Waiting on Wednesday”.
I’m always following bloggers that post this meme and I really like it. So, why not join the group and share the books that I’m most excited about?

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My choice for today it’s a sequel that I’m really curious about.


AUTHOR: Lauren Oliver
TITLE: Ringer (Replica #2)
PAGES: 528 pages
PUBLISHER: HarperCollins
RELEASE DATE: 3rd October, 2017


In the world outside of the Haven Institute, Lyra and Caelum are finding it hard to be human—and Lyra, infected at Haven with a terrible disease, finds her symptoms are growing worse. When Caelum leaves without warning, Lyra follows him, seeking a pioneering organization in Philadelphia that might have a cure. But what they uncover there is a shocking connection to their past, even as their future seems in danger of collapsing.

Though Gemma just wants to go back to her normal life after Haven, she soon learns that her powerful father has other plans for the replicas—unless she and her boyfriend Pete can stop him. But they soon learn that they aren’t safe either. The Haven Institute wasn’t destroyed after all, and now Gemma is the one behind the walls.

Bestselling author Lauren Oliver brings the Replica duology to a shocking close in Ringer, but like both Gemma and Lyra, you won’t be able to leave the world of Haven behind after you’ve turned the last page.

I’m really excited to read this book. I’ve read “Replica” last year and to be honest, it wasn’t one of my favorites. However, the ideia of the book it’s promissing.
The author made a few mistakes at the first book and I hope that she corrected them in this sequel. Also, I’m curious to see what will happen to the characters and how the drama will unroll.

Cover Reveal of “HER” by Danielle Rose


Kemper Academy is over a hundred years old, but it has only recently reopened after a series of murders and stories of hauntings shut it down.
Avlynn, a new student, refuses to let the rumors scare her, chalking them up to a bit of friendly freshman hazing.
But when night falls and screams draw her from her room, she finds the truth is much more horrifying than any ghost story.



AUTHOR: Danielle Rose
GENRE: Horror
PAGES: Short Story (approximately 2.600 words)
PUBLISHER: Oftomes Publishing
RELEASE DATE: 19th September
PRE-ORDER FOR $0.99: Amazon

I love how Oftomes Publishing is republishing books and upgrating the covers.
All the book that I’ve read from them were amazing and the designs were really well done.
It’s definetly one of my favorite publinshings and I can’t wait to read Danielle’s new short story around Halloween time.

Do you like of ghost stories? It’s one of my favorites!

TBR Zero Project


Oi, pessoal! Tudo bem com vocês?
No final do ano passado, eu tomei coragem e juntei todos os meus livros não lidos e o resultado foi assustador! Aparentemente, eu tenho 74 livros não lidos, sem contar os e-books. Eu sabia que a lista era longa, mas me surpreendi. Foi então que resolvi arregaçar as mangas e ler todos eles em 2017.
Pensando nisso, eu criei o TBR Zero. Como o nome já diz, a ideia é tentar zerar a TBR até o final deste ano.

Parece quase impossível, eu sei, mas vou tentar e espero ler pelo menos 60% dessa pilha.
Também vou me limitar a comprar apenas os livros que estou esperando há muito tempo, como Fogo Contra Fogo. Esperei a vida inteira por esse livro, Senhor.
Então, esta é a minha TBR:

fundo-branco (1).png

A interação está acontecendo no Instagram e a cada TBR compartilhada pelos participantes, fico ainda mais animada para continuar firme com o projeto.
Até a metade de Janeiro, pretendo organizar tudo e trazer várias coisas legais para incentivar a leitura. Isso inclui: Sprints (leitura com tempo cronometrado), calendário de leituras, planilha para planejamento, leituras em conjunto e quem sabe até mesmo sorteios.

Se a sua situação está tão crítica quanto a minha, dê uma olhada no projeto. Todos serão recebidos de braços abertos.

Hello guys! What’s up?
At the end of last year, I decided to separate all of my unread books and the result was scary!
Aparently, I own 74 books on my TBR. I knew it was a lot of books, but I’m surprised. After this shock, I’ve decided to read all of them till the end of 2017.
Having thiis is mind, I’ve created the TBR Zero project.

I know it looks almost impossible, but I’ll try anyway. I’m hoping to read at least 60% of this giant pile.
I’m also restriting myself of buying more books. I’ll only buy books that I’m waiting forever to be released here in Brazil, like Fire With Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian.
So, this photo above is my TBR pile.

The interection is happening on Instagram and I get so excited when I see that there are people sharing their TBR and participating of this project. This makes me really happy.
Till the half of January, I’ll plan and organize new things there. That includes: Sprints, reading calendars, spread sheet for planning, buddy reads and a lot more.

If you’re in the same situation as me, go check the project out. It may help you.
Everyone is more than welcome to join us!

Happy New Year!!


Olá, pessoal lindo!
Estou passando aqui para desejar um 2017 cheio de saúde, paz, felicidade e claro, muitos livros bons.
2016 não foi um ano muito bom para mim e tive que deixar de lado várias coisas que havia planejado no começo do ano. No entanto, já montei a minha lista para 2017 e vou fazer o máximo para cumprir todas as metas.
Neste novo ano, quero estar mais ativa e finalmente postar resenha de vários livros que tenho separado aqui.
Também estou no processo de organizar o blog e montar um cronograma. Não estou completamente feliz com a aparência do ‘A Full Time Reader’ e tem muitas coisas que eu gostaria de mudar aqui, mas não é possível por causa da versão básica do WordPress que possuo. Mas, como estou no começo dessa jornada, perfeição não é tão importante, e sim o conteúdo.
Novamente, agradeço à todos que acompanham o meu blog e não desistiram de mim. Eu fico imensamente feliz com o apoio de vocês e isso me incentiva cada vez mais.
Muito sucesso e que 2017 traga várias oportunidades para nós. Feliz Ano Novo!!

Hello, beautiful people!
I’m here to wish you guys an amazing 2017 full of health, hapiness and of course, full of good books.
2016 wasn’t a good  year for me. A lot of unexpected things happened and I had to give up of a lot of things I had planned at the beginning of the year. However, I already made my new list for 2017 and I’ll do my best to acomplished all my goals.
In this new year, I want to be more active in here and finally post all the reviews I made and I haven’t posted yet. Also, I’m not complete satisfied with the A Full Time Reader’s design. There’s a lot of things that I wanted to change and aprimorate, but this version of WordPress doesn’t allow me to change much of anything. Howsoever, since I’m at the beginning of blogging, design is not that important; the content is.
Once again, thank you so much for following my blog all this time and for not giving up on me. I’m immensatly happy with all the support you guys gave me and this encourages me even more.
A lot of success this year to you and that 2017 bring us great opportunities. Happy New Year!!
