๐Ÿ’“Modern Day Meet Cute’s๐Ÿ’“

It’s my last post of February and you bet I’m squeezing one last romance related blog post out of this month!

Saying that though, I have had this post planned for months now I’ve just never gotten around to actually writing it. Today I come to you with some books that have what I’m calling “a modern day meet cute“.

By “modern day meet cute” I mean that the two characters meet online in some way and their relationship develops online. That kind of thing. I’ve be wracking my brains for more books like this but in the months I’ve been wanting to write this post, I’ve only come up with 4 which seems crazy, I feel like there should be loads more.

There’s every chance I’m just completely forgetting a few. Let’s have a look at the one’s I’ve got, and you can tell me in the comments which one’s I’ve left out!


Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertali

apparently I don’t have the book cover in my gallery and I’m too lazy to go find it.

Was this the first YA book to do what I’m pegging as “the modern day meet-cute”? I think so. In this book we of course have Simon, who is closeted to everyone besides his online friend Blue, who he talks to through e-mails.

My favourite books of the year (so far!)

Helloo and welcome to my blog :)))giphy

I usually sit here and prattle for a paragraph or two but I’m getting straight to the point today because I actually wanna go curl up in bed and read.

Before that though I am going to be talking about my favourite books of the year so far.

In the completely crazy year that is 2020 I have so far read 48 books which is wayyyy more than I thought I’d read all year let alone only up to now and yet my favourites really weren’t hard to pick out.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

ninthhouse

Ninth House was the first book that I completed this year and so because of that I keep forgetting I read it in 2020.

I feel like it’s hard to give an accurate description of this book but basically it follows Galaxy “Alex” Stern who has lived a hard life to the point that, by age twenty, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. She is offered a full ride to Yale in exchange for monitoring the schools secrete society.

This book was something completely new to me. It was dark, daring, it made me uncomfortable so many times to the point I was reading through my fingers and yet I couldn’t put it down.

It’s also not for the faint of hearted as there are a lot of trigger warnings: addiction, abuse, assault, graphic details and descriptions of blood and injuries, to name but a few.

I believe the sequel is set for 2021 which is kind of sad because I was hoping it’d be released this year but also kinda of good because then I won’t feel bad going and re-reading this. Full Review Here.ย

๐ŸŒผTop 5 Books I Read This Spring๐ŸŒผ

Guys I’m stressed. There’s a thousand bars in my town and yet everyone from my school goes to the one right opposite my house. They can see inside my living room window ๐Ÿ˜‚. I feel like going out on my balcony and telling them to go find some other place to serve their underage ass.

Instead of doing that I’m going to channel my anxiety into talking all about the best books I read this spring.

In the last three months I have read 30 books. 30!!! I’m shocked too. And yet even though I’ve read so much my top 5 are pretty clear.

May Wrap Up

Helloo ๐Ÿ™‚ Back in my May TBR I said I was going to “make May my bitch” and I’m happy to report that I more then followed through on that statement. I got some motivation back! I started being productive! And in the end I got a whole bunch of school work done and completed 10 books!!!

I set myself a “challenge” this month just to try and bring a bit more fun to reading and stop me getting so overwhelmed. The challenge was to read every colour of the rainbow, so a red book, a yellow book and so on and so on โ€ฆ and I did just that. It was actually a lot of fun and I’ll probably do it again in the future. This is probably gonna be long so I’m just going to start wrapping things up.

Top 5 books to read this summerโ˜€ // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hello and happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ So I’m running on three hours sleep right now so I apologise in advance. Saying that though I did survive a kind of important exam earlier this morning so I’m sure this will be a walk in the park in comparison with that.

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is top 5 books to read this summer. I can’t believe its summer already. God this year is so dodgy but here’s what I’m recommending to read while we’re all sunbathing in face masks ๐Ÿ™‚

I have no Jenn Bennett books left to read.

Last night at 2am I accomplished something amazing: I finished my last Jenn Bennett book. I have officially read all of her released YA contemporary novels!

Ok maybe this isn’t the most impressive thing in the world considering that’s actually only 4 books but I’m going to be dedicating a whole post to talking about it anyways because I can.

Starry Eyes

35297469Starry Eyes was the first Bennett book I ever read. This was free on Riveted one month and I started reading it because I had nothing better to do and thank God because not only has it introduced me to a favourite instant-buy author, but it opened me up to reading more romance heavy contemporaries in general.

This book follows Zorie who goes camping with friends and is surprised to find Lennon, the ex-best friend she’s been avoiding for months, there too.

Shit gets serious when they’re friends ditch them and Zorie and Lennon are left to hike home and camp alone. Continue reading “I have no Jenn Bennett books left to read.”

Reading My Rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ// May TBR

Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I should be doing anything but writing this post right now because I have a bunch of school assignments due in tomorrow and I haven’t even started but talking about what I’m going to be reading this month is way more fun.

I’m feeling very motivated right now (as long as it’s not school related). I’m ready to make May my bitch.ย 

I’m allowed outside the house for an hour or two a day now without getting arrested which is nice. My baby brother turns 14 this month which is also nice but lowkey terrifying. And I have a great TBR planned out.

Last month I read a fair few duds and so for May I’m trying to spice things up a bit and bring a bit of fun back to my reading and so I’m going to be reading my rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ.

It’s my birthday and I got books! // Book Haul

Hi and hello and a very happy August!!!!

Before I get into this blog post I just want to give fair warning that I’m writing this at 1am because I’ve been playing Sims all night and I’m a busy bee tomorrow so this is what I’m left with. You’ve been warned.

So yesterday (today for me) was my birthday! Yay, a whole day of being tagged in ugly photos on Facebook by family members I haven’t spoken too in years. Woo.

I’m 17 now, a Dancing Queen according to the Gods AKA Abba. All jokes aside I had a great day eating birthday cake for breakfast, drinking beer around the pool (drink safely kids) and my dad lying to a bar owner we know and saying I’m 18 so I could get a beer. I’m forever one year older when we set foot into that bar now.

Also I got 8 books!!!!!!! Which is clearly the most important part and it’s what I’m about to start blabbing on about now ๐Ÿ™‚

Jenn Bennett // Authors I Want to Read More Of.

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today I’m going to be talking about an author I want to read more of: Jenn Bennett.

Jenn Bennett is an award winning Young Adult author whose books I’ve come to love this year. Her romances are so cute and I love how she includes different topics for example astronomy and anatomical art. (Is that what it’s called?)

What I’ve Read:
