Books that made me laugh // Top 5 Tuesday


Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday!

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is: Books that made me laugh and I have a disclaimer before getting into the list: I have a terrible memory so these may not be as funny as I remember, I also have a terrible sense of humour. I blame my dad for this. We have a running joke about chickens wearing flipflops so … Be Warned.

Again But Better by Christine Riccio

This book wasn’t funny on purpose but it was funny none the less from the name of the love interest: Pilot Penn, to the terrible metaphors you can’t help but laugh at. The fun of the book doesn’t end with the last page either because the reviews for this because are just as entertaining.

The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

I’ve not re-read these in a while and it’s something I’ve really been wanting to do recently. My problem however is that I let someone borrow the first book years ago and I never got it back so now I’m 1 book down. I’m genuinely considering just starting from book 2 because these books are so funny even if they are geared at a younger audience they always make me laugh.

Did I Read my Most Anticipated Reads of 2019?

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

So today I thought we’d take a walk down memory lane and have a look to see if I read my Most Anticipated 2019 releases and my Intriguing Releases of 2019 which was a list of books I knew next to nothing about but the covers or a quick glance over the synopsis had me interested.

I’m looking forward to seeing what I thought and if I even still want to read some of them.

5 Book’s I Would Re-Write // Top 5 Tuesday


Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday 🙂

Todays Top 5 Tuesday is all about rewriting books and at first I thought this topic was going to be really hard but I came up with my list in about five minutes. I have a lot of things I want to change.

Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo


I mentioned in my review of this book that I hated Mal with a vengeance and wanted him to die. Yes I was that dramatic. So if I could re-write this book that’s what I’d do. If I had my way he’d have been eaten during the first few chapters and I wouldn’t regret a single thing. Continue reading “5 Book’s I Would Re-Write // Top 5 Tuesday”

A-B-C-D-E // Top 5 Tuesday



Hello and Happy Tuesday!

For this next month and hopefully following months I’ve decided to take part in Top 5 Tuesday which is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book . The theme for this month is all books that start with the following letters of the alphabet.

 Again But Better by Christine Riccio


When I received an ARC for this courtesy of Netgalley I shit you not I screamed. I was so excited about reading this. Granted that excitement went away as soon as I actually started reading it but in recent weeks I’ve come to have a new appreciation for this book. Its bad it really it however I find reading other peoples reviews so entertaining that I have to give it props. Just the overall ridiculousness of this book and the reviews that include sentences like “a clusterfuck of quirky nonsense” keep me so entertained. Continue reading “A-B-C-D-E // Top 5 Tuesday”

Wrap Ups

May Wrap Up!



Hello and welcome to my blog!

It’s that time again for another wrap up. I said in my May TBR that I didn’t think I’d be able to get to many books this month due to school and although I wish I could have read more but I managed to finish six books this month.

The Sims Book Tag!


large (1)

Hello and welcome back to my blog 🙂

Today I’m doing the Sims Book tag!


I am absolute trash for the Sims. I love living vicariously through them and basically being their GOD(dess).

Reading and playing Sims are my favourite forms of procrastination and are responsible for the permanent bags under my eyes because I have no control and stay up too late every time. So I figured hey, why don’t I combine the two and do the book tag 🙂

The May TBR that could have been.

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I’m doing my May TBR … kind of.

You see I have more or less seven weeks till the end of school and my graduation from mandatory education which roughly translates to seven weeks for me to get my grades up so that I do actually graduate and get my title and rub it in my brothers face and make my parents proud. Etcetera.

(Also family friends we haven’t seen in 10 years and grandparents we haven’t seen in 3 years both decided to come out to stay with us this month???)

So I imagine the next two months are going to be pretty busy and my time for reading is going to be limited. And so I’m going to be talking about all the books I WISH I could be reading in May when in actual fact I’ll be slaving over Math/History/Latin/Economy homework and wishing I was dead 🙂

April TBR

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I’m back again with a new month and a new TBR. I’m being ambitious this month but this first week of the month is filled with exams and my acne is not having fun right now so of course in the week easter holidays I plan on making up for lost time and reading a LOT.

The first book I plan on completing is my current read Goblet of Fire which I started re-reading last month and I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve got like 200 pages to go which I’m trying to finish inbetween studying.

Following my Harry Potter re-read I want to read my recent buy The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I bought this because I LOVE the tv show of which I am 3 seasons in. I’ve heard that some changes were made to the show but I’m really hoping I enjoy this series.

I then want to read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve said I wanted to read this forever but I’m hoping April will be the month! I really want to read Carry On, especially now with the sequel coming out soon but I refuse to even buy it until I read this.

And finally of my physical books I want to read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. This is a super cute comic and I’m hoping it takes some school stress away and help with the whole acne situation happening on my face.

I then seriously need to get to some ARCs this month and these are the three I think I’ll get to.

Again but Better by Christine Riccio, this is highly anticipated read for many people and I was super lucky to be accepted for an early digital copy. I’m nervous but excited for this.

The War Blog by Glen Sobey, all I know about this is that it’s got some feminist themes. I haven’t seen great reviews for this but I’m gonna hold onto hope that I enjoy this.

You Can Change the World by Margaret Rooke, this is a collection of 50 stories of badass people. I love the cover of this so much.

I don’t know whether these will be the ARCs I get to, I do have my eye on a few others but who knows?

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12I’m really hoping for a good reading month this April, I’m really looking forward to spending a week sleeping and reading.

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

Spring. AKA the time of me stressing about the upcoming end of school, eating my weight in chocolate cause “hey it’s easter!” and sneezing 24/7 thanks to allergies. Ahh good times.

In all seriousness I am looking forward to this upcoming season. Mainly I’m excited for the weather to change and for the wind to die down. And also the upcoming books I get to read!
