You thought I was gonna leave you before the very end of March? I couldn't possibly do that! Especially when I still have lovely people to add to the Orenda Tree! What kind of host leaves her guests in the hallway? What do you know about Steph Broadribb? I know I keep hearing about her… Continue reading #OrendaMonth The Team’s Tree: The Branches (part 4) @OrendaBooks
I can hardly believe this will probably be my last review for the Orenda Month! I haven't been able to finish my next read so unless a miracle happens, In Her Wake is my last piece of work, and what a fantastic way to end the review part of this project! Title: In Her Wake Author: Amanda… Continue reading #OrendaMonth Book 6: In Her Wake by Amanda Jennings @OrendaBooks @MandaJJennings + Giveaway!
Here comes another review! I feel I've been writing plenty of them when it fact it is only the fourth! I've experienced a bit with the format of my reviews in March but now it's Lazy Saturday Review time! From Lipsyy : I started doing ‘lazy Saturday reviews’ as a way of getting reviews done… Continue reading #OrendaMonth Book 4: Where Roses Never Die by Gunnar Staalesen @OrendaBooks
Now that we met the trunk of the Orenda Books team last week, it is time to take a look at its inspiring and diverse branches! Just like the Trunk team, authors and translators have been kind enough to give me 5 facts about them. You may wonder why I got this idea. Well, since… Continue reading #OrendaMonth The Team’s Tree: The Branches (part 1) @OrendaBooks

I find Orenda Books' logo to be very inspiring, a tree and a bird... a sort of bird I am too silly to recognize. An eagle?? I am terrible at this but this is not point. I do see Orenda Books' company as a flamboyant tree which brings the Earth its best products. This is… Continue reading #OrendaMonth The Team’s Tree: The Trunk + Giveaway Winner @OrendaBooks
A tag once asked me whether I preferred character-driven stories or plot-driven books. My answer was: a mix of both. You can have a mind-blowing plot ruined by bland characters as much as you can get the most amazing characters let down by the weak storyline. Still, there is one thing I need to truly enjoy… Continue reading No, It’s Not YOU! A Guest Post by Thomas Enger #OrendaMonth @OrendaBooks @EngerThomas
I have a confession to make. Before I started blogging, I had no clue and no interest in knowing which company published what. For me, it was all about the book. I did not even care that much about the author's name, that tells you something! I was a seeker for stories, but I never… Continue reading Publish Me Not! Or How I Did Not Know a Thing about Publishers until I Started Blogging #OrendaMonth #Suntag?
Here we are, the first review of the Orenda Books Month!
