Somebody needs to take my Kindle away from me // E-Book Haul

Hi, hey, hello and happy whatever day it is. I don’t know.

Somebody needs to come over here and take away my kindle. Or my mums credit card. Either one is fine because I keep buying a bunch of On Sale e-books and I’m going to end up with too many sooner or later.

I have a fun TBR planned for next month to help get some of these newly purchased books read but for now I’m just going to talk about what I got:

The first book of this haul I had to buy because my literature teacher told me to and that is The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith. This is one of the books I have to read this term. My book report actually has to be in by the 4th of May and I haven’t read this yet so I’ll be getting to this soon. I don’t know anything about it but I hope it’s good because it’ll make doing homework easier and fun.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston is a modern day retelling of Cinderella but it’s got elements of fandom and a food delivery truck called the Magic Pumpkin! I’ve heard pretty good things about this so I’m hoping for a fun, fast read. Continue reading “Somebody needs to take my Kindle away from me // E-Book Haul”

Happy Easter // Book Tag 🐰🌸

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

So yesterday was Easter something I didn’t realise until I skyped my 5 year old sister and she showed me her mountain of Easter Eggs. I’m not religious or anything but I live opposite a church so it’s weird not to hear the bells ring a million times a day or watch the parade that leaves from there.

Anyways today I am going to be doing the Easter Time Book Tag, originally created by Theresa @ The Calico Books … and then I’m going to go eat my own chocolate egg.

Easter Eggs: Name a book that feels like a hidden gem

I really haven’t seen many people talk about talk about These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabelle Sterling which is wrong because it’s gay elemental witches with great humour.

On one hand I’m glad I get to keep it all to myself but on the hand I want everyone to read this ASAP!


Bloom: A debut novel you loved.

I’ve loved way more debut novels then I even realised so in the face of a long list I’m going with my most recent which was The Devouring Grey by Christine Lynn Herman. 

This wasn’t the best book in the world but it was fun and I raced through it in one day.

I’m also currently re-reading Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston and I refuse to believe this is a debut because it’s just so good!

Spring Has Sprung … and so have my allergies // Book Tag

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am doing the Spring has Sprung book tag because even though it hasn’t stopped raining in the last two weeks spring has indeed sprung.

Like almost everyone else I’m not aloud to leave my house right now so the allergies are being kept at bay but it’s only a matter of time before the three months of constant sneezing and watering eyes begin. Yay.

Flowers – All the flowers we remember are blooming again. Pick a book that’s a fresh take on a retelling.

I haven’t read many retellings but I do have a fair few on my TBR including Geekerella by Ashley Poston which I may or may not have bought the e-book of the other night. I don’t know much about this but I know it’s a Cinderella retelling with fandom themes which for a huge nerd like me seems like a fun time. I also know it features a food truck called the Magic Pumpkin which sounds cute!

Cadbury Mini Eggs- Obviously the superior springtime chocolate of choice. Pick a book that you consider to be a sweet treat.

First of all: big fat yesss to Mini Eggs being the best!!!

Less a book more of an author but I really love Jenn Bennetts contemporary novels. They’re such easy reads, the main characters all have something unique about them and even with all the cutness and fluffiness there’s more things at play. I’m currently readin Seriously Moonlight and loving it! Continue reading “Spring Has Sprung … and so have my allergies // Book Tag”
