Day 12 – A Book That Made You Happy
I’ve read hundreds of books I’ve enjoyed. They’ve made me feel a whole range of emotions but I wouldn’t say that they all made me happy per se. How many books have you finished and felt happy at the end without being overwhelmed by a well of other emotions? Pick out one that overall left you feeling happy. It’s tough.
But I found one. A Book that made me happy was Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

Day 11 – Favourite Non-Fiction Book
For someone who doesn’t really read non fiction this one wasn’t too hard for me. I’m really not too keen on reading non fiction because fiction is so much less terrifying than real life (as you are about to see). I do like reading informative books but books about real people make me rather depressed. I’ll stick to my fantasy works, thanks.
So my favourite non fiction novel is We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families by Philip Gourevitch.

So we’ve reached the final book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It’s been a wild ride of emotion and pain but we’ve loved every moment of it. There is a huge possibility that this series is my favourite series of all time (and that would mean that it surpasses The Lord of the Rings and Spotless which says a LOT about my feelings towards the series). Anyway without further ado, A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas.

Day 10 – Favourite Fantasy Character
These prompts are so hard because it’s so difficult to just choose one character.
Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse was one that I was a little sceptical to start but I got the Shadow and Bone trilogy on sale on my kindle and decided to fmgive it a shot. I’m still a little sceptic to start Six of Crows but at least I took the plunge.
I enjoyed Shadow and Bone a lot more than I expected to and from it fell in love with some of the characters.
My favourite fantasy character is The Darkling from the Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo.

We all love Judy Blume. So many of us grew up with her books and those books made a lasting impression on us (everyone needs Double Fudge in their lives). So this book was written back in 1975, won the 1996 A.L.A. Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults and was said to be ahead of its time. It was, and for some, it might still be. I really, really adored this book. I related a lot to the story and it hurt.
Forever by Judy Blume.

This was one of the books that I always saw and like the look of but never really got around to reading. I’d seen a lot of great reviews about it and so when I saw they had it in my local library I decided to give it a go.
I love a retelling of fairytales. It’s always interesting to see how the author will take a spin on the original tale we know and love. And that is what A Curse so Dark and Lonely is. It’s a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast and this much is apparent since the beginning. So here we go; A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.

Day 9 – A book everyone hated but you loved
I’m not really sure about this one. I feel like there aren’t many books that I enjoyed that most others hated. It’s more a case that the books that I read might not have been very well known to begin with and so it is hard to find someone that has read them, let alone love them. So I don’t feel like those books count at all in this prompt.
There is only one that is really coming to mind.
A book that everyone hated that I loved would have to be An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.
