Books I want to read but I'm insecure about them.

As a lot of you before I buy a book I always make sure to check reviews to know whether this book is going to be something that I'll love or is going to just make me waste money. 
Books are usually expensive (If you consider the fact that I payed 36€ for The Diviners only) and I'm not trying to waste money, especially for hardcovers and paperback because ebooks are cheaper and I can always go for them. 
Today I'm going to talk about some of the books that I want to read but I am really unsure if that is going to be a good purchase or not.

The first one is a really controversial book: Zenith. 

This book was written by two booktubers and it wasn't appreciated by the community, I have not heard not even one positive review if it's not for Emmabook, she is the only person that I heard saying something nice about this book. 

I was intrigued by the cover and obviously by the plot.
I have a Scribd membership so I usually get ebooks there, I read a little bit of them and then if I like them I buy the paperback if I don't I continue in ebook.
This book's ebook was not available but there was the audiobook, now, I can't listen to audiobook, I don't know how people do that, I keep starting to think about something else and I can't concentrate, I listened to the first chapter and I wasn't seeing anything bad with this book, I am really unsure on what to do, I obviously can't judge a book by the first chapter so I'll keep listening and if I'll be liking this then I'll buy it. 

Skyward.
Risultati immagini per skywardThis is the book that I am less unsure about out of all the others, I've heard really mixed opinions about this but at least there were many good ones as well as negative ones unlike the first book that I mentioned. 
I am really intrigued by the plot of this book, it follows the story of a girl living in a world that's in constant war with other planets, she is the daughter of a man that was considered a coward because during a fight, he run away.
She's an aspiring pilot which is the highest rank in the society of this world. 
This book is already in the chart and I'm probably going to order it as soon as I have enough books to make an order.

We all know how I hate romance at the moment, this has been in my chart for quite a while but I never pressed buy when this book was there, I was interested in the plot and I still am it's just that I am scared considering all the romance I hated that this is going to be the same. 
For now so many other books have priority over this one.
I might not ever buy this.
But we'll see.
We never know what life holds for us.

It's in the chart with Skyward waiting for me to have enough books to make the order.

I've heard nothing but great things about this book. 
The only thing that is keeping me form getting it is that I am scared I'm not going to like it as much as everybody else. 
Even if I didn't find not even one negative review.
I might just get it and who cares but it's pretty expensive, I have the ebook for this as well so I might try the first chapters there before getting the book.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know what are the book that you are keeping yourself form reading and why and hopefully I'll see you in another post.
Bye. 
P.S. I hope you liked the new format of this blog post.

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.
Edit your book, I know averyone has been talking about if editing is useful or not and listen to me, yes it is.

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…
