Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.
So yesterday was Easter something I didn’t realise until I skyped my 5 year old sister and she showed me her mountain of Easter Eggs. I’m not religious or anything but I live opposite a church so it’s weird not to hear the bells ring a million times a day or watch the parade that leaves from there.
Anyways today I am going to be doing the Easter Time Book Tag, originally created by Theresa @ The Calico Books … and then I’m going to go eat my own chocolate egg.
Easter Eggs: Name a book that feels like a hidden gem
I really haven’t seen many people talk about talk about These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabelle Sterling which is wrong because it’s gay elemental witches with great humour.
On one hand I’m glad I get to keep it all to myself but on the hand I want everyone to read this ASAP!
Bloom: A debut novel you loved.
I’ve loved way more debut novels then I even realised so in the face of a long list I’m going with my most recent which was The Devouring Grey by Christine Lynn Herman.
This wasn’t the best book in the world but it was fun and I raced through it in one day.
I’m also currently re-reading Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and I refuse to believe this is a debut because it’s just so good!
Chocolate Bunny: A book so good you didn’t want it to end!
I did not want Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater to end. This book was like crack to me. I couldnt get enough which is funny to say since I was genuinely reading it for over a month because of exams.
Cheep, Cheep: A book you bought for super cheap.
I buy a lot of e-books for cheap. Actually I’ll only buy e-books if they’re cheap. Some of what I recently bought include:
And a fair few more because I had money left on my Amazon account and I was prepping for my weeks stuck inside.
Jelly Bean: A book you thought was just so sweet
There’s no other answer I could possibly say besides Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman. This whole graphic novel series is wholesome and amazing but this newest addition was above and beyond adorable (and sad. I’m scared for Charlie).
Church: A book that changed your life.
It’s kind of a cliche answer but the Percy Jackson series changed my life. Those are the books that got me into reading after I watched, and at the time loved, the movies. I actually read these online at first which i know isn’t the best thing but over the years I’ve bought near enough all his books so I think I’ve made up for it.
Easter Basket: A book with so many surprises.
I’m genuinely stuck on an answer for this question so instead I’m recommending a movie which I watched the other week and am still thinking about: Knives Out.
This movie was so good and yeah, like most people, I only wanted to watch because Chris Evans was in it but five minutes in I knew this was going to be amazing and it was! I didn’t know what was going to happen next.
I lied about waiting till I finish writing this post before eating my chocolate. I’m halfway through a pack of Minstrels now and I have no regrets. Chocolate is life.
I hope everyone had a good Easter, I know things are a bit odd this year. Thank you for reading and stay safe!
