Summer Blog Challenge – Day 20

Day 20 – Best Book You Read Last Year

I hardly remember what I had for dinner last night, let alone remember what I did last year but books? Now they’re something I remember.

I read a lot of great books last year, and some bad ones, but there are a few that stand out in my memory. However, I can only pick one for this prompt.

The best book I read last year was The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 19

Day 19 – A Book That Disappointed You

Its not often that I’m not pleased with a book and I can’t say that there are a lot of books I’ve felt disappointed by.

A book that I was disappointed by was If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

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 10

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.

Forever… – Judy Blume

Hey guys,

We all love Judy Blume. So many of us grew up with her books and those books made a lasting impression on us (everyone needs Double Fudge in their lives). So this book was written back in 1975, won the 1996 A.L.A. Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults and was said to be ahead of its time. It was, and for some, it might still be. I really, really adored this book. I related a lot to the story and it hurt.

Forever by Judy Blume.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) – Brigid Kemmerer

This was one of the books that I always saw and like the look of but never really got around to reading. I’d seen a lot of great reviews about it and so when I saw they had it in my local library I decided to give it a go.

I love a retelling of fairytales. It’s always interesting to see how the author will take a spin on the original tale we know and love. And that is what A Curse so Dark and Lonely is. It’s a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast and this much is apparent since the beginning. So here we go; A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.

Summer Blog Challenge – Day 9

Day 9 – A book everyone hated but you loved

I’m not really sure about this one. I feel like there aren’t many books that I enjoyed that most others hated. It’s more a case that the books that I read might not have been very well known to begin with and so it is hard to find someone that has read them, let alone love them. So I don’t feel like those books count at all in this prompt.

There is only one that is really coming to mind.

A book that everyone hated that I loved would have to be An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.
