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.

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.

So I’m finally catching up with the rest of the world. I got fed up rereading the same books (even though I have loads of books in my TBR pile.

I’m a part of a few pages on Facebook and there was so much hype around these books that was afraid to be disappointed if I started. But, the series was on sale on the Kindle store and I think I got the three books for around £7 so I can’t really complain. I started Shadow and Bone and I finished it by lunchtime the following day. I couldn’t put it down. I really, really enjoyed the first book. (I also just got these beautiful copies in my most recent book haul. I’m in love).

So you might be aware that I recently changed job from the fast paced and should destroying world of the catering industry for a more chilled desk job in a dentist. It’s a pretty good life but we aren’t going to go into that. There is a point behind me mentioning this actually. The way my previous jobs bonus scheme worked was as a point system, your store was awarded points based on performance and you could then go on to spend the points on cool stuff. I was saving my points and when it came to me leaving the company I decided I should use my points instead of losing them.
Naturally, I loaded them all into a National Book Token card to spend in a bookshop.
It did not disappoint.
