Top 5 books to read this summer☀ // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hello and happy Tuesday 🙂 So I’m running on three hours sleep right now so I apologise in advance. Saying that though I did survive a kind of important exam earlier this morning so I’m sure this will be a walk in the park in comparison with that.

Today’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is top 5 books to read this summer. I can’t believe its summer already. God this year is so dodgy but here’s what I’m recommending to read while we’re all sunbathing in face masks 🙂

The Book Interview Tag

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

Ok so first things first: I’m considering dying my hair pastel pink. 

I’m bored and I’m not going back to school anytime soon so why not, ya know. So yeah. I’m writing this in advance so there’s a chance that when this post goes live I could have (temporary) pink hair … or I could sleep on it and realise it’s a bad idea. Who knows.

Anyways today I’m going to be doing The Book Interview Tag. Thank you so much to Daria @ The Bookaholic’s Therapy for tagging me! You should definitely go follow Daria because her posts are really fun to read and also her blog is so aesthetically pretty!

Name/Blog Name

My name is Elli-mai but I go by Elli because my teachers sometimes pronounce “Mai” as “meow” so it’s just easier.

My blog is called AceReader cause I’m terrible at coming up with cool names so I just smashed two words together and called it a day.

My favourite reads of 2019!

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

My Favourite Characters of 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

So today I am talking about My Favourite Characters of 2019. I wasn’t going to do a post like this but then I started thinking about some of the new characters I’ve come to love this year and in the end I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about them.

Malcolm Bright – Prodigal Son

☀Top 5 Books I Read this Summer☀

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

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 “☀Top 5 Books I Read this Summer☀”

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.

celebration.gif

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 🙂

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 BW Mid Year Tag

Hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

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 by  Virginia @ The Sassy Library Fox so big thanks to Virginia 🙂

✨Where are you on your Goodreads Challenge? Ahead or Behind?

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.

July Wrap Up

 

bg5

Hello and happy August! There’s a chance I’ve already wished you a happy August already but I really don’t know. My posting schedule is all over the place at the minute and I have no idea what’s going on.

So as you can probably tell by the title of todays post I’m wrapping up most of the books I read in July! I’m pretty conflicted on how July went in terms of reading. I completed 7 books this month as well as three more during the Reading-Rush Readathon so it was good, however I have done literally nothing this month so I was hoping I would have read a bit more.

Anyways, time to jump into the 7 books I read. I’m not including books read during the Reading-Rush Readathon because I have a whole post dedicated to what I read and my overall experience which you can read: HERE :p

1- Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkings

This book made me think this topic was going to be easy because I found this one straight away. I absolutely loved Prince Charming, it was so much fun and so entertaining! I absolutely loved the main character Daisy and I just flew through this book.  Continue reading “5 under 300 // Top 5 Tuesday”
