Books by Black Authors // Recommendations

Hello 🙂 I am here today with some recommendations of books written by black authors.

I use the term “recommendations” loosely for the simple fact that the books I’m about to talk about are pretty popular meaning you’ve either probably read them already or have at least heard about them.

Black Life Matters protests are still happening all over the world and even if you can’t be on the front lines marching there’s still so many ways you can help such as:

  • Signing petitions such as those listed HERE 
  • Donating HERE if you’re able.
  • And if you can’t donate you can watch videos where all the ad revenue is donated to various charities and organizations HERE.

Characters that make me go “lolz” // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hello and happy Tuesday 🙂

Another week and another round of Top 5 Tuesday.

Ok so today was my first day back at school, my first day of college and I was there for literally four hours but I am exhausted!!!

So apologies for any and all incoherent-ness, I’m sure I’m going to regret adding the word “lolz” to the title of this post but I’m looking forward to todays topic of: Funniest characters.

I actually did research for todays topic and by “research” I mean I watched a few multi-random crack videos on YouTube and then proceeded to use none of the characters from those videos.

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shannah @ The Bionic Book Worm

Literally all the Herondales.

Yes the Herondales. Literally every single one. They’re a mess but they’re all hilarious. Do they make bad life choices most of the time, especially when it comes to romantic endeavours? Yes, no question. But their  wit is always on point. Continue reading “Characters that make me go “lolz” // Top 5 Tuesday”

Winter Bookish Bingo

Hello and happy not winter!

Last autumn I took part in the Fall Bookish Bingo and had so much fun that I decided to do it again. These seasonal bingos are hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews if you want to participate.

I did really well over the past three months and I only failed on Three challenges!

I was just here, minding my own business, writing my favourite books of 2018 post, talking to Buddy the bearded dragon my brother got for Christmas and minding my own business when I realised it was the 30th of December!

When did this happen! How has the month gone by so fast!

I kid you not this wrap up is going to be a surprise for me too because this month was crazy with exams and I do not now what I did or did not read so … lets go!

2018 Movies I Loved!

In 2018 I spent all my money on three things: Pepsi, books and all the movie releases.

And it was worth it because Pepsi is and will always be amazing and I watched a lot of great movies this year. I have narrowed it down to 12 I want to talk about and I managed to not have them all be Marvel movies by some miracle.

🎅🎄The Christmas Song Book Tag🎄🎅

 

large (1)

In full disclosure, the past few years I have been kind of a Christmas scrooge. I don’t like the attention all being on me and also there’s so many phone calls. I love my family but talking to them all and arranging skype with my dad and siblings is stressful.

This year however, I was the first one to put Christmas songs on and I’ve been having a blast eating chocolate everyday (whoever invented advent calendars is a GOD) and counting down the days till exams are over and I can have three weeks to read freely. And so what better festive tag then the Christmas song tag.

This past autemn I took part in the Fall Bookish Bingo and I loved it so much that I’m back for winter too. This is hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews.

So 2018 is really nearly almost over and … I’ve already finished my Goodreads Reading Goal!!! I set myself the challenge of reading 40 books and as it stands now I’ve read 79!

I can’t believe it! I’m so happy and proud. But there are still a couple of books I want to read before the end of the year.

All topics can be found here.

1- History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

I cannot go another year without ever reading an Adam Silvera. For two years now I’ve been saying I’m going to try one of his book and yet it’s still never happened! I will read this in the next two months or so help me.  Continue reading “Books I Want to Read Before 2019 // Top 5 Wednesday”
