Books that sound like cool band names

Hellooo πŸ™‚ It’s Monday and as if that’s not bad enough my allergies have got me beat. Anyone would think I’ve been wondering around a flower shop with how much I’m sneezing and how bad my eyes are watering right now.

Anyways today’s post is quick and fun because I really mean it when I say my eyes are watering like crazy. I am going to be talking about book titles that sound like cool band names!

This was actually a Top 10 Tuesday topic from a couple of weeks ago. I don’t participate in Top 10 Tuesday so I’ll leave a link HERE for this list of topics, but this looked like a lot of fun so I decided to do my own list.

There’s obviously so many cool sounding book titles out there so I narrowed my selection down to books I own either physically or on my Kindle.

  • These Witches Don’t Burn (I’m thinking badass girl group)
  • The Black Veins
  • The Extraordinaries

My favourite reads of 2019!

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12Queen of Air & Darkness by Cassandra Clare

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 … 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!”

Books to give teenage girls as gifts 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

Last year there was a Top 5 Wednesday topic about books we’d give to certain people as gifts and I chose teenage girls as I myself am a teenage girl, so ya know it made sense.

Either way I really enjoyed making that list which you can find HERE and I decided to make another list this year πŸ™‚

Happy Halloween! // Halloween Book Tag

Hi, hey, hello and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

8585

(I love this gif so much)

I’d like to say I have some super spooky and fun Halloween plans but I really don’t. My night includes trying to get through my stack of homework while not falling asleep and maybe, hopefully finishing my current read.

And so I’m here to do a Halloween Book Tag to at least pretend like I’m getting int the festive spirit.

I saw this done by Robin @ Paperbacks and Planners πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Happy Halloween! // Halloween Book Tag”

β˜€Top 5 Books I Read this Summerβ˜€

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

Guess who just got back from the dentist and was stupid enough to not eat beforehand and so is now starving!!!! ME :))) Yep.

And so to distract myself from my hunger I thought I’d talk about My Favourite Books I Read This Summer!

Summer has never before been my favourite season, for the most part because I’m as pale as a vampire (to the point where my old citizenship teacher asked if I was a ghost) so the burning hot ball in the sky and I don’t get on all that much.

However I’ve actually had a great time this past summer and in the past three months, June, July and August, I’ve read some really great books.

1- Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer

12

I was still in school when I read this and the boy who sits next to me, the only other English boy who could possibly understand what I was reading, kept looking over at the worst time. Usually when limbs were being dismembered. He was very worried about me. Continue reading “β˜€Top 5 Books I Read this Summerβ˜€”

Instant Buy Authors

Hello and welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

Today I’m going to be talking about a few of my Instant Buy Authors. I will be leaving out the more obvious ones like Rick Riordan and Cassandra Clare. I sold my soul to these two authors years ago and it doesn’t need to be mentioned again.

But joining the ranks of “people who own my soul” are:

1- Karen M. McManus

June Wrap Up

Hey. Hi. Hello! Welcome to my blog and happy July!

Like wow isn’t that crazy? I’m planning on reading a whole lot this July and taking full advantage of my time off but before I get ahead of myself I’m going to be talking about the 11 books I read this month.

Yeah I finished a whole 11 books this month. I don’t exactly know how since June was a month filled with exams but I’m not complaining.

  • Superior by Jessica Lack– I kicked off pride month with a super cute short story following a superhero’s intern and a supervillains apprentice. It was absolutely adorable and a great fast read that helped me relax through exam stress I just really wish it had been longer. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare- This is book number 4 in the Magisterium trilogy and although I enjoy this series when reading I am finding that it’s a pretty average read unfortunately. Only 1 book to go though. ⭐⭐⭐
  • History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera I’m really sad to say that me and this book just did not mesh. On one hand I love the representation and the fact that these characters do have faults and aren’t perfect but really I just didn’t connect with this book which left me really disappointed especially since this book is so hyped. ⭐⭐
