Summer Blog Challenge – Day 23

Day 23 – Your Favourite Quote from Your Favourite Book

This is tough because I don’t know what my favourite book is. It could be A Court of Mist and Fury or it could be The Great Gatsby or it could be The Lord of the Rings.

I really had to mull this one over. But I got there. Eventually.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 17

Day 17 – Favourite Non-Human Character

I was unsure how to interpret this prompt. Did include human-like characters or did I go for beasts and creatures.

Then I thought screw it and decided to go for both.

My favourite non-human character is the Bone Carver from A Court of Thorns of Roses.

A Court of Wings and Ruin – A Review

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.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 7

Day 7 – Favourite Book Couple

I love romance in books. I love heavy romance in books and don’t object if it’s heavily explicit. In fact, I’m often disappointed if there isn’t some kind of romance in the book that I’m reading. But, as usual, choosing just one couple was hard though I’m happy with my choice. They are the reason I reread the series as often as I do.

My favourite book couple is Penryn and Raffe from the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy by Susan E. E.

This Year’s Reads So Far…

Hi guys,

So we are finally in June which means that half of 2019 is already gone and before we know it it’s going to be 2020! What a year it has been so far!

The chaos of life has had me swamped and a new baby demanding my undivided attention means that I haven’t managed to read nearly as many books as I would have liked to but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t accomplished anything! I find myself now reading a lot more on my Kindle simply for the reason that it is very hard to hold a baby and turn the pages of books so at the moment my Kindle and I have become good friends again.

Bookshelf Tour

Hey guys,

So life has been all over the place with work and getting our flat ready for the arrival of our little baby in May (it’s so close, just 8 weeks now). We are currently staying in a one bedroom flat at the moment which meant that we had a lot of space to make for baby things. I have three bookcases at the moment and part of the compromise was that I had to reduce the amount of space that I was taking up with books (I love my books more than most things, but the baby is obviously more important!) So this meant that I had to condense down my bookcases and put some books away in the cupboard for now.

I thought that I would do a post on my bookcases before this happened because they won’t be looking too great by the end of this!

So, my first ever bookshelf tour! Continue reading “Bookshelf Tour”
