The “Get to Know Me” Book Tag // My 1 Year Blogger-versary!!!

Hi, hello and welcome to my blog!

Today is a day of celebration. It’s been a whole year since I started this blog.

It’s my bloggerversary and I’m probably spelling that extremely wrong but I feel like terrible spelling is a staple of my blogposts. To celebrate it being a year of me being annoying as hell I decided to do the “Get to know me” Book Tag because in the beginning I never really talked about myself because anxiety ๐Ÿ™‚

A little bit about me

My names Elli. I’m 17 and originally from East Yorkshire with the accent to prove it but I’ve been living in Spain since I was ten (although I do not have the tan to prove that). This September I start the Spanish equivalent of 6th form and I am shitting myself.

I have three siblings, two brothers and a sister, all younger, two of which live back in the UK. I also have three pets who I would die for: Fudge, Poppet and Kit-Kat.

And now that you’ve been blessed with these incredible and majestic photos let’s jump into the tag: Continue reading “The “Get to Know Me” Book Tag // My 1 Year Blogger-versary!!!”

The Perfect Summer Reads๐Ÿฆ

Hello and welcome to my blog!SUMMER.gif

I’m currently 1 week into the summer holidays and I’ve got to say that I’m having a blast. My life no longer revolves around late night studying, early morning wake ups and me drowning in exams. No, instead I can stay up all night reading or playing sims and eating my weight in ice-cream.

It’s amazing.

And so I figured I’d use my current summery mood to scour my shelfs and find some books that I think are perfect to read this summer ๐Ÿ™‚

1- Aristotle and Dante by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Hello and welcome back to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello and happy Friday!

Today I’m doing The Perfect Book Tag which was created by Sofii at A Book. A Thought and I was tagged by Lauren at Narrative Reads. So thank you so much!

The Perfect Genre

What genre would your perfect book be?

For this I’m going with Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. Romance isn’t my thing because I cringe at any sort of romantic moment but this book was a perfect romance/contemporary.

It was full of level headed characters, great representation, the two love interests had other things going on besides just the romance and the romance itself was so healthy and adorable!!!

Rip it or Ship it Tag

Hello and Happy belated Valentines day!

Although it is just a manufactured holiday filled with cheap cards, chocolate and traumatic awkward moments I’m using it as the perfect excuse to play the Rip it or Ship it Book Tag.ย 

I was going to write each book character out individually and be all cute and aesthetic but โ€ฆ it’s late and I’m lazy ๐Ÿ™‚ Instead I used a handy dandy website and I got the following couples: Continue reading “Rip it or Ship it Tag”

For the record none of these are in any particular order just how I wrote them down in my lil notebook ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading “My Favourite Books of 2018”

๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„The Christmas Song Book Tag๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…

 

large (1)

In full disclosure, the past few years I have been kind of a Christmas scrooge. I don’t like the attention all being on me and also there’s so many phone calls. I love my family but talking to them all and arranging skype with my dad and siblings is stressful.

This year however, I was the first one to put Christmas songs on and I’ve been having a blast eating chocolate everyday (whoever invented advent calendars is a GOD) and counting down the days till exams are over and I can have three weeks to read freely. And so what better festive tag then the Christmas song tag.

Rainy Day Book Tag๐ŸŒง

Yes another book tag! School is crazy right now and that’s seriously cutting into my reading time which means I have nothing to review/talk about.

The weather here in ‘Sunny Spain’ has not being living up to it’s name recently. I was literally locked out of school in the rain, about to be late for a really important exam yesterday and so I thought why not do The Rainy Day Book Tag?
