Books that made me belly laugh!

I’m meant to be being productive today but 3 mildly inconvenient things have happened to me already and I’ve only been awake an hour and a half:

Sainsbury’s didn’t have any good meal deal options, I bashed my head on the boiler, and then I burnt my finger making my potnoodle (I’m eating it right now. It’s not even that nice).

This all makes sense to me now because I’ve just realised it’s Friday 13th. Like I said, I was meant to be being productive today but I’m not risking the jinx on my uni work or visa documents. I’ll start being productive on Monday.

But, to get my mind off my gross lunch and my burnt finger I thought I’d lighten things up a little by talking not just about funny books, but books that made me full on belly laugh!


Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert

We’re starting off with the third and final book of The Brown Sisters trilogy because this book is kind of what inspired this post.

I picked this up in hopes it pulled me out of a reading slump I had fallen into a couple of months ago and it definitely did that. This book filled me with so much joy. Not only was the dialogue between Eve and Jacob funny, the situations they found themselves in were right out of a comedy. I could picture what was happening so clearly that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.

The entire trilogy was so much fun but I would definitely say Act Your Age, Eve Brown was my favourite of the three.

I’m going to read book-tubers favourite books of 2021

Hello👋

My procrastination leads me down many roads, this weeks bout has me stuck with the idea that I’m going to read booktubers favourite books of 2021. This is why I spent a fair bit of time watching various videos and compiling a list.

After watching these videos and writing out this list I realised that I’d already read a decent amount of the books, and a fair amount that I hadn’t are ones that were already on my physical TBR.

Those are the books I’m going to be attempting to read before the end of the year, the ones I already owned and planned to read in my own time anyways. Ideally doing something like this would push me out of my reading comfort zone but I don’t have the money to splurge on a ton of books which is why I’m doing it like this.

The book-tubers whose favourite’s I’ll hopefully be reading are: Hailey in Bookland // Emma Books // Peruse Project // Jack Edwards // Noelle Gallagher // Fictional Fates // This Story Ain’t Over // A Clockwork Reader.


  • Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas – Hailey in Bookland
  • Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-ÍyímídéFictional Fates

Which popular YA bird-book character am I?

Hello and howdy.

I’ve just been staring at my laptop for the last hour, wanting to write something but just having one big brain fart. Finally though I’ve had the genius idea of re-visiting a post I’ve done before but with a lil twist.

Today I am once again going to be finding out which popular YA character I am, but specifically from the holy trinity of YA bird-books: Six of Crows, The Raven Cycle and The Foxhole Court (which is classed as a bird book cause of the second novel “The Raven King”)


From Six of Crows I am … Nina Zenik

The Quiz

I had a feeling I was going to get Nina purely because I answered with food to a fair few questions and well know Nina is a foodie and rightly so. I really love Nina, she’s funny, badass and so confident in herself. I haven’t read it yet but she’s one of the main reasons I want to continue on to read King of Scars. Very happy with this one!

Starting the month early // Mary TBR

Hey and howdy.

April was not the reading month I wanted it to be. I was super excited about my TBR last month but most of the books I wanted to read were ones I had physical copies of. The problem there being that I was away for most of Easter so couldn’t read any of them.

As I’m writing this there’s still a week and a bit left of April but I’m calling it quits on this month early. I can’t explain why I’m doing this, because I don’t know, but basically any books I read from now on I’m going to class as May reads.

Like I said, I can’t explain why I’m doing this, I just know that this is going to help me avoid a reading slump so I’m just rolling with it.

With that being said, here are the books I want to read in May (… and the last week of April).

The Book Snob Tag!

Hello 🙂

I’m currently at my dads house for the week and legit my favourite thing about being here is that I get to eat my little siblings packed-lunch snacks. I went from my bare shell of a food cupboard back at uni to a legit cornucopia of snacks. Loving it.

Anyways, today I’m going to be doing The Book Snob Tag. I was tagged to do this by Virginia @ The Sassy Library Fox. Thank you Virginia💕 


Format Snob // You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?

So audiobooks are completely out of the equation because no matter how hard I try my brain just does not cooperate. The struggle comes when you make me choose between physical books and e-books.

On one hand I love physical books: the smell, the look of them on my shelf. But then you have e-books which are just so cheap, convenient, and I swear I read them faster somehow!

I feel like in my dream world I’d have enough money to buy as many physical books as I’d like so let’s go with physical books.

If you haven’t read these 2021 releases, you should!

Hello👋I just got back from uni where the same girl who said I reminded her of a “golden retriever who’s just happy to be here” a couple of weeks ago, today said I reminded her of a “languid capybara”. I have many questions, the main one being: Am I being bullied and I just don’t realise or care??

I’ve sent this question circling around my friends but I just wanted to share that here as well because I’m still confused and trying to process.

Anyways, moving away from the animals I apparently remind people of, I’m here to talk about 2021 releases you should read if you haven’t already!!

I did this for 2020 releases just a couple of months ago. I was also planning on leaving this post til the end of the year but I’ve already read a bunch of 2021 releases I want to recommend. I’ve got even more on my TBR so this is probably part one, with part two coming later in the year.

ARC Review: Confessions of an Alleged Good Girl by Joya Goffney

*ARC courtesy of Netgalley*

Publication Date: May 3rd 2022

Monique lives a perfect life – a preacher’s daughter and the girlfriend of the town’s golden boy. But it’s not that simple. She’s torn between her parents who want the pure virginal daughter, and her boyfriend, Dom, who wants to explore the more intimate side of their relationship.

Tired of waiting, her boyfriend breaks up with her, spurring Monique to discover she has a medical condition that makes her far from perfect and she concocts a plan to fix her body and win him back.

With the help of her frenemy, Sasha, the overly zealous church girl Monique’s mum pushes her to hang out with, and Reggie, the town’s not-so-good boy, Monique must go on trips to unknown and uncomfortable places to find the treatment that will help her. But in doing so, she must face some home truths: maybe she shouldn’t be fixing her body to please a boy, maybe Sasha is the friend she needed all along and maybe Reggie isn’t so bad at all.

Dear Hollywood, please adapt these books!

Hello 🙂

Did I have pizza from uni for lunch? Yes. Did I just order a pizza from the shop down the road? Yes. Yes I did. Its 9:30pm, I haven’t eaten since 11:30am and I cannot be bothered to cook. Please don’t judge me.

While I’m waiting for my pizza to be delivered though, I figured it was the best time to talk book-to-screen adaptations, specifically which ones I want to see be a real thing.


The Brown Sister Trilogy by Talia Hibbert

So me finishing, and loving, Act Your Age, Eve Brown is what inspired this entire post because all I want from life now is a movie trilogy following each book in this series.

Splendid Spring Book Tag 🌷🌼

It’s been snowing on and off all day. Like full on blizzard, you look out the window and it’s like being in a snow globe. So now’s clearly the perfect time to do the Splendid Spring Book Tag!! I found this tag on paperbackandplanners blog 🙂

I should clarify that it’s March 30th right now. I’m scheduling posts in advance cause I’m going to be a busy bee this Easter holidays. I hope to God it’s not still snowing right now.


🌼Everywhere you look flowers are blooming! Choose a book you love or think you will love with flowers on the cover🌼

This cover is absolutely gorgeous and the flowers are a big part of why I love it and if I’m being honest, a big part of what made me buy the book in the first place.

I have high hopes for House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland. I don’t think I’m going to be able to get to it this month, but I’m thinking it’s going to have to be a top priority for May.
