Day 13 – A Book That Made You Sad
I love a sad book, especially the kind that has you sobbing uncontrollably while you read through your tears. I’ve read a few good ones like that.
If I had to just choose one, I would choose Me Before You by Jojo Moyes for the book that made me sad.

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 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.

Day 5 -Favourite book cover
I was just going to choose 1 cover for this but I thought, to keep the post a little longer, that I would choose 3. How are you just supposed to pick one? But I will point out which is my favourite of the 3 just to stay to the prompt.
I love to appreciate a pretty book cover.

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”
2018 is officially coming to a close and 2019 is about to begin. What a year it has been.
I don’t know about you guys but it’s been a pretty life-changing year for me. I got engaged in spring, found out I was pregnant in summer, lost my grandad in the fall and my lovely old pussycat got put to sleep in winter. It’s been an emotional year with both happy and sad circumstances falling on my family and I but here we are at the end of another year.
I thought I would do a bit of a wrap up of my Top 10 Books for 2018. It’s not something I’ve done before but I thought it would be nice to revisit all the great books I’ve read in the past year. This isn’t limited only to books that have come out in 2018. Continue reading “Top 10 Books for 2018”
