Day 28 – The Best Book You’ve Read this Month

So I’m getting myself sorted to start reviewing some fairytale retellings in August after having read A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. I honestly thought that was going to be my favourite read for this month but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by another so that one has definitely stolen the spot.

The best book I’ve read this month is The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shallcross.

Day 26 – A Book Turned Movie and Completely Desecrated

I knew as soon as I saw this prompt what I was going to choose for this prompt.

Usually I enjoy adaptations. I mean, the book is usually still better but it’s aways nice to see your favourite works of fiction take flesh, so long as the creators actually follow the book.

The movie I had in mind, the book turned movie that was completely desecrated was City of Bones, first book in the Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare.

Day 24 – A Book You’ve Wanted to Read for a Long Time But Haven’t

My TBR pile is the length of my arm. Longer. No, really it’s now just turned into a TBR bookcase. It’s getting ridiculous. I’ve actually set myself a resolution for this year of not buying books that I’m not going to read immediately. It’s been going somewhat successfully (kind of).

But one that I’ve wanted to read for a long time (about 3 years now) is actually the second book to a series. I loved the first book so much because it was something so unique for me.

A book that I’ve wanted to read for a long time but haven’t is Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, book two in Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children series.

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.

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.
