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.
Do any of you have a reading companion? I do and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We have a little cat, well rather a big cat but he’s only a baby. His name is Darwin and he’s just trouble in a small soft parcel.
He does, however, make for an excellent reading companion.
So I’ve loved this series. Stumbling upon it by mistake has been one of the best things and I can’t express how much I’ve enjoyed reading it. It has been a whirlwind of emotions and happenings to and really what a dystopian, apocalyptic novel needs to be. Its been great and I’m sad we’ve reached the end. And what an ending it was!
So, here we go. The Eternity Cure, the final instalment in the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa.
Day 1 – Favourite book you read last month
So I didn’t get much reading done last month simply because reading is a little hard when your home alone with a newborn baby but I did get some reading done. Out of everything that I did manage to read I did have one favourite for June.
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.
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”
There has been some radio silence on my part recently. I am alive and kicking, just struggling to find the motivation to do anything productive. I’ve been thinking about my blog a lot but can’t find the energy to start writing something. It’s a bit of a slump. I’ve even just been rereading the same books rather than delve into anything new. (As much as I love ACOTAR, I really need to find something else to read!)
It isn’t all miserable, far from it really. There are some exciting times ahead for my fiance and me- our dynamic duo is going to become a trio in May 2019. We are expecting our first baby (a lovely little girl) and we are so in love with a person we have yet to meet. A lot of exciting changes are coming about.
