My Favourite Quotes & Moments: Crooked Kingdom!

Howdy ๐Ÿค 

Last year I re-read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo in anticipation for the release of the Shadow & Bone series which I ended up loving so much. While I re-read that though, I shared my favourite quotes & moments from the book.

Fast forward just under a year later and the new cast members for season two of Shadow & Bone was released: Nikolai, Tamar, Tolya and Wylan!!!

I’ve been meaning to re-read Crooked Kingdom since last year, and once again it was something revolving the TV show that finally pushed me to do so. Just like with Six of Crows I’ve picked out my favourite quotes and moments that I want to share

My favourite reads of 2019!

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

So yesterday I talked all about my least favourite reads of 2019(which I stupidly titled 2020 and only just realised my mistake because I’m an idiot) and I really went to town on them. Today however is a positive vibes only zone as I’m going to be talking about the best of the bunch. giphy

I read 83 books this year, completely surpassing my intended goal of 60. I’m actually currently reading 2 more, one of which I plan on finishing as soon as I’m done writing this post, and yet I’ve got 9 books to talk about today.

My criteria for picking my “favourites” is based solely off of pure enjoyment. I’ve chosen books which, even all these months later, I’m still thinking about, I’m still excited about and overall I’m’ still in love with.

Any and all book reviews I’ve written this year can all be found HERE.

And finally before I start I just want to say that these are in chronological of when I read them and not by rank or rating or anything like that ๐Ÿ™‚

9781471116704Queen of Air & Darkness was the second book I read this year and although it’s an absolute beast of a book I flew through it in just 3 days!

Yes some of the plot decisions were โ€ฆ odd and questionable *cough* Thule. Angelic Giants *cough* but I can’t deny that I had a great time reading.

This book made me feel so much. I sobbed in the beginning for about five chapters straight and that was just the beginning of my tears as the story progressed. I came to love so many new characters with this trilogy and I’m cautiously anticipating future instalments of this universe. Continue reading “My favourite reads of 2019!”

Back to school book tag – can someone send me back to nursery please.

large (1)

Hello and happy Thursday and welcome to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I come to you with the Back to School Book Tag because as I’ve mentioned in literally every one of this weeks posts I am back at school!

This week has been my first week of college and it’s had its highs and it’s lows featuring numerous stress headaches just two days in but, as I sit here writing this, today went quite well. We’re officially getting into classes and I’ve been socialising more with friends which feels nice. That’s an incredibly sad thing to say but I’m usually the girl sat at the back all by myself because I get too anxious and nervous, so actually joking around with people has been fun.

This is my schedule for the year so not too bad although I am forever pissed that I have P.E first hour on a bloody Friday. Exercise at 8:30 in the morning! I genuinely can’t think of anything worse.

English- Name your favourite authors writing style.

For this first question I’ve chosen Laura Steven. I’ve only read the The Exact Opposite of Okay duology from her so far but I absolutely loved the writing style. It was hilarious, witty and so easy to read. Continue reading “Back to school book tag – can someone send me back to nursery please.”

The BW Mid Year Tag

Hello and welcome to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

I am currently in a strange stage of nervous but not nervous because I start my new job tonight and I don’t know how to feel. On one hand I’m excited because I’ve done bar work before, I’ve known the owner for years and she’s the one that offered me the job but on the other hand I cant stop overthinking it.

And so I figured that to take my mind off of it I would finaly getting around to doing The BW Mid Year Tag which I was tagged to do byย ย Virginia @ The Sassy Library Fox so big thanks to Virginia ๐Ÿ™‚

โœจWhere are you on your Goodreads Challenge? Ahead or Behind? โœจ

As of 2am last night I have officially completed my Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge!!! There was digital confetti and everything. It was a magical moment.

I set my goal for the year at 60 books and I have no idea how I’ve already read that many but I am thrilled because school starts soon and I have a feeling it’s gonna be crazy and reading’s gonna have to take the backseat for a while.

Mid Year Book Freak-Out Tag!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

So far this year my reading is going really well. I’ve somehow managed to read 47 books this year while also keeping up with school work. I’m very proud of this.

Absolutely everybody has been doing the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag recently and of course I’m jumping on that bandwagon too. This tag looks really fun and I’m excited to look back at what I’ve read.

๐ŸŒŸBest Book You’ve Read So Far In 2019๐ŸŒŸ

I genuinely did try to pick something different for this question but this really has been the best book I’ve read so far this year. It was funny yet also emotional with a nice amount of political commentary that I enjoyed. I’ve had to stop myself from re-reading this multiple times. It definitely deserves the hype. My Review.ย 

๐ŸŒŸBest Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019 ๐ŸŒŸ

To be honest I’ve barely read any sequels this year. I really need to get on that. But definitely out of the few that I’ve read my favourite was Crooked Kingdom. I’m annoyed it took me so long to read this series and I’m dying for new content from these characters. My Review Continue reading “Mid Year Book Freak-Out Tag!”

Dad Goals! // It’s Wednesday My Dudes

Hello and happy Wednesday!

As I’m sure everybody’s aware, Top 5 Wednesday is on hiatus while Sam takes a well deserved break and so that means every Wednesday post is gonna be more of a car crash then normal since I’m in charge of choosing what I talk about. Yay!

It was recently fathers day so considering I talked about some Mum Goals I figured I’d also shine a light on some great father/father figures.

๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผTop 5 Books I Read in Spring๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท

Hello and welcome to my blog and most importantly โ€ฆ Happy Summer!

Spring happened. I don’t remember much of it actually. It’s kind of a blur filled with sneezing, exams and the disappointment of not getting any Easter eggs but oh well.

Today I’m going to be talking about the top 5 books I read in the past three months. And to be honest I actually kind of struggled with picking 5 because although I’ve read quite a lot, there’s not been many to write home about.

But fear not because I did mange to get there eventually and I actually did really enjoy what I picked:

1- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Books its too soon to re-read.

Hello and happy Friday!

I’m another week closer to graduation and three months summer holidays and I cannot wait! And although I’m studying all weekend I am very much looking forward to sleeping in a couple more hours.

Today I’m talking about some book that I’m dying to reread โ€ฆ even though I only read them in the past couple of months. Re-reading, as great as it is and as much enjoyment as I get out of reading books I’ve already loved once before, is going to be the death of me. Re-reading isย  going to cause me to drown in my TBR of never before read books and I’ll die.

March Wrap Up

 

bg5

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I’ve really been loving doing wrap up’s so far this year because I’m always surprised at how much I actually got read during the month and I’m loving it!

This month I, again, did pretty well with a total of six and a half books read! And out of those six, four of them are off my physical TBR which is so much better then last month where I only read one physical book.

(How is my physical TBR going to shrink if I don’t read off of it and keep buying more books?!)
