Books that sound like cool band names

Hellooo 🙂 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

Authors A-Z: F-G-H-I-J // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday!

I have drank a whole energy drink in hopes to motivate myself to sort my life out and do my homework and study for the mountain of exams I have coming up in the next three weeks. My body feels really awake …. my eyes do not.

On the plus I am typing really, really fast right now.

Anyways todays Top 5 Tuesday is a continuation of last weeks. Throughout the month of March, as I’m sure you may know, we’re going through the alphabet and talking all about authors.

(You can check out my list for A-E HERE)

Last week I said I was going off an authors first name and that was the plan for the whole month but then that changed today when I realised I would have nobody for more or less half this list.

I’ve only read one book by Francesca Zappia and that was Eliza and Her Monsters which was HUGE when it came out. Everyone was reading it so I did too. Continue reading “Authors A-Z: F-G-H-I-J // Top 5 Tuesday”

A book hangover is worse than a real hangover // Top 5 Tuesday

 

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday.

I just found out my school trip to Italy next week has been cancelled due to the North of Italy being on lockdown and quarantine due to the Coronavirus. Yay.😂 And here I thought the most I’d have to worry about was rooming with the popular mean girls.

I just find it funny that the one time I try something outside of my comfort zone that yeah I was super nervous about but also really excited for gets cancelled because of the country is under quarantine.

Moving on from that though, let’s talk about this weeks Top 5 Tuesday topic: Books that gave me a book hangover. I’d really like to get drunk enough to have a hangover right now but I’m not 18 and my parents are both out of the country so they can’t buy me any. Woop.

Above & Beyond Expectations // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday 🙂

I skipped last weeks top 5 Tuesday because I’m terrible at time management but I’m back this week and I have no fancy pancy introduction because it’s nearly midnight and I still have homework to do for tomorrow so let’s just jump right in to books that exceeded my expectations!

Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

51QBmgCjsuL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_

I loved The Naturals series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, it’s genuinely one of my favourite series and it’s one of the series that got me into reading but I was hesitant going into this book.

I knew I was going to like it but it took me by surprise just how much I liked it. I’m from East Yorkshire and yet this book had me reading in a southern belle like accent as I flew through this book. I haven’t picked up the sequel and I don’t know if I’m going to but I did really enjoy this more then I was expecting. Continue reading “Above & Beyond Expectations // Top 5 Tuesday”

Anticipated 2020 Sequels! // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday!

I have a cold but I’m about to talk about upcoming sequels coming out this year that I am absolutely dying to read and would probably sell my firstborn child if I could get my hands on these sooner.

Todays Top 5 Tuesday topic is technically Anticipated Releases of 2020 but I’m doing tri-monthly versions of them so I don’t want to milk the new releases cow and so I’m talking specifically about sequels of books I’ve already read and am dying to read.

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater #2

9781407194462

I spoiled myself with The Raven Cycle because when I began reading that series all of the books had already been released. I suppose being part of the fandom and getting excited with everyone else over titles and cover releases could be fun but still I need this book in my hands now!

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 🙂

🍂Top 3 Books I read this Autumn🍂

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I pulled a 10pm till 2am shift last night and let me tell you those are the weirdest hours I’ve ever worked and it’s left me feeling all disorientated with time and space. Although I should be studying for my final round of exams I just can’t get in the concentration studying mood and so I thought I’d talk about My favourite Autumn reads before jumping into Spanish literature.

I’ve done a couple of these seasonal wrap ups at this point and normally I do a list of my top 5 but sadly there’s just not five books that are all on the same level of greatness. I am happy with the three books I’ve chosen to talk about though.

October Wrap Up!

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog!

It’s November. We’re officially in the last two months of the 2010’s. I am feeling very old right now so we’re going to move on quickly before I go full existential crisis mode and we’re going to talk about the books I read this October!

I actually made myself a TBR for October, something I don’t often do because I literally never commit but I did quite well this month. I read four books off that TBR as well as starting a 5th and then I added in a random graphic novel for fun as well.

Book Review: These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling

51odSLYu2KL

Publication Date: May 28th 2019

Series: These Witches Don’t Burn #1


Hannah’s a witch, but not the kind you’re thinking of. She’s the real deal, an Elemental with the power to control fire, earth, water, and air. But even though she lives in Salem, Massachusetts, her magic is a secret she has to keep to herself. If she’s ever caught using it in front of a Reg (read: non-witch), she could lose it. For good.

So, Hannah spends most of her time avoiding her ex-girlfriend (and fellow Elemental Witch) Veronica, hanging out with her best friend, and working at the Fly by Night Cauldron selling candles and crystals to tourists, goths, and local Wiccans.

But dealing with her ex is the least of Hannah’s concerns when a terrifying blood ritual interrupts the end-of-school-year bonfire. Read More.

Books I don’t need but bought anyways :)

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

I’m a genius. Absolute Albert Einstein type. I bought books to celebrate surviving my first week of school … and now, because of school, I have absolutely no time to read them. So smart.

Anyways, here are the four books that I’ll say I’m going to read before I go to bed but end up getting so caught up in school work and then I pass out without even picking it up.
