The Stay Home Book Tag

And once again my procrastination has come back to haunt me 😂 It’s nearly midnight and I still haven’t done my homework or written today’s post.

Could I do these things tomorrow morning? Yes, but I like sleep and I know that no matter how hard I try I’m not going to wake up early and be productive so here I am.

Today I’m going to be doing the Stay Home Book Tag which was originally created by Princess of Paperback. I’ve seen this tag all over recently and I am still stuck at home thanks to Spanish lockdown so that’s what I’m going to be doing today.

Laying In Bed: A book you read in one day.

sleepy

The most recent book I read in one day was The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith not because I liked it but because I had to write a report on it and I left it till the last minute so I knocked it out and got it out of the way with in one day.

Another book I did like and read in one day was The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman. Technically I read the first chapter the night before but that was just testing the waters before falling asleep so it counts. Continue reading “The Stay Home Book Tag”

Asexuals in Fiction ðŸ–¤ðŸ’œðŸ–¤

Hi, hey, hello and happy asexual awareness week 🙂

This was meant to be up earlier in the week but I have been so wrapped up in school recently that I didn’t even realise. But anyways this week is Asexual Awareness Week. Woo!!!

I did a post similar to this for Bisexual Visibility day a few weeks back and here I am today to talk about some books featuring Asexual characters. There sadly isn’t many books with ace characters but we’re seeing more and more each year and I’m living for it!

Bookish Tattoos I Would Totally Get.

Hey, hi, hello and happy Tuesday!

There’s no official Top 5 Tuesday this week but I’m doing a top 5 list of sorts anyways because why not.

Today I’m talking about Bookish tattoos I would happily have on my body for the rest of my life. This topic is inspired by the fact that I myself got my very first tattoo last week and I’m still riding the high.

LGBTQ+ Books & Series I Love!

Hello!

It is pride month! And so in celebration I thought that today I would share a few of my personal favourite books and television shows featuring really great lgbtq+ representation.

I’ve chosen books with little to no angst because as much as I love the powerful reads I want to talk about books with gays living their best lives with minimal angst and reader trauma involved. Continue reading “LGBTQ+ Books & Series I Love!”

Books I love but sadly don’t own.

Hello and happy Friday!

As a reader, my favourite website ever is by far Riveted.com. Basically every month they release samples and also full books for free and its amazing and I’ve been able to read so many great books because of it!

My Favourite Books of 2018

The other day I was a total Negative Nancy with me listing 5 of the worst books I’d read in 2018 but today I’m being a down right Positive Patricia and talking about 10 of my favourite books from this past year and I am so excited.

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

Books for my younger self // Top 5 Wednesday

 

0b52cfa20534e151d7c781034eb22588 (1).jpg

Well done me for so far consistently posting a Top 5 Wendesday even though this is literally only the second week. I’m just gonna take the wins when I can though.

I’m not sure if this is meant to be books to help my younger self or just books I think my younger self would just generally enjoy but I’m going to roll with it.

The weekly topics are posted HERE on Goodreads.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

91WEx42EdiL

This is more for past me from a year then me when I was a little kid because I have owned this book for so long but I got so intimidated by the hype that I ignored it until recently when people on Tumblr just kept yelling at me to read it.

Tash Hearts Tolstoy by by K. E. Ormsbee

29414576

I really enjoyed this book and I wish there had been more books with Asexual characters a year ago when I was trying to figure things out. I am however really enjoying reading through Asexual/Aromantic character books at the minute.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

images234Q50FU.jpgI’ve never read this series but I loved the movies. I think if I were to read them now they’d be far too juvenile and I wouldn’t enjoy them. Too bad child me wasnt that interested in reading back then unless it was Twilight.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomasf043712f-4655-4c8a-b60f-fca1e4c6ca9f

I’m including this because I still haven’t read it and younger me and current me shouldn’t be scared of the hype and the love around this book. Hopefully I’ll get to it before the movie comes out.

Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead

51XN5PsardL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Partly to introduce myself to a better vampire alternative to Twilight. Partly because maybe if I’d started this soon I wouldn’t have gotten fed up of vampires and maybe I might have actually finished the series. As is stands right now I haven’t gotten past the fourth book.

 


Thanks for reading 💜
