Book Review: I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman

Publication Date: May 3rd 2018


For Angel Ahmadi, life is only about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything – her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world.

Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band is all he’s ever dreamed of doing. It’s just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare.

Because that’s the problem with dreaming – eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.

New to me authors 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

Its officially 5 days to Christmas and I’m in panic mode because I haven’t gotten any presents besides for Secrete Santa. I’m a mess and a disasters.

Todays post is in no way Christmas related because I don’t need the stress, instead I’m going to be talking about a few new to me authors that I read this past year.

Jenn Bennett

I haven’t stopped raving about Jenn Bennet since I read her book Starry Eyes at the start of the year and for good reason. I thought her books, of which I’ve so far read 2 (Starry Eyes and Night Owl) were lots of fun and they made me enjoy and be more open to reading ya contemporary with romances, something I previously wasn’t totally crazy for.

On my shelf I have her other 2 contemporary releases (Alex Approximately and Serious Moonlight) which I hope to get to in 2020 and if I enjoy those I plan on picking up and trying her new historical fantasy novel. Continue reading “New to me authors 2019”

Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Publication Date: May 3rd 2018


In case you’re wondering, this is not a love story.

My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year – before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of A-Levels and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people – I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that’s all over now.

Now there’s Solitaire. And Michael Holden. Read More

Authors I need to read // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday!

Ok so this weeks top 5 Tuesday topics, as mentioned above in the title, is 5 Authors I need to read.

Now. I found this topic quite hard because I’ve done so well this past year at trying out new authors, especially the most well known authors like, for example: Rainbow Rowel, Adam Silvera, Jenn Bennet, etc.

I did manage to come up with a few authors I’m interested in checking out but only really one or two are top priority right now.

My current Bookish Wishlist.

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

Today we’re discussing my problems. I have a fair few problems but to be more specific we’re going to be talking about the fact that I’m in a reading slump and still considering buying more books.

Do I need new books? Nope. Definitly not.

Do I have the space or the time to read new books? Nope. I’m already drowning in my current TBR. 

Have these factors, plus the fact that I’ve literally read 2 books in 20 days, stopped me from compiling a list of books I really want to buy? Also nope.

I think somebody needs to stage an intervention and stop me but in the mean time, lets take a look at my current Bookish Wishlist:
