August TBR

18 - August TBR

I know it is a bit late (almost two weeks into the month), but here is what I have planned to read in the month of August. I am trying to keep my TBR pile for this month small as I do not have much time to read, due to this month being a crazy month with school tests and organising my university preferences for next year. This very short list features three books, one of which I have been begging the library […]

June Wrap-Up

17 - June Wrap-Up

This is my first  Wrap-Up on my blog! During the month of June, I read only three books; Every Day Another Day Illuminae Believe it or not, the first two, smaller, young adult romance novels; Every day, and Another day by David Levithan took me wayyy longer to read than the larger, 600-page Si-Fi novel Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Illuminae, surprisingly only took me two days to read. I was so hooked, I had trouble physically putting it down for […]

14 - Book Challenge May 13

Considering I buy all my books based off of their covers, I really don’t own any books (so far) with covers that I totally disagree with so for the Good Book, Bad Cover prompt, Beneath The Skin was my only contender, due to its absence of a dust jacket. Naked books are pretty and all but the cover art on books is so much prettier! But as I have mentioned numerous times, both on this blog and on Instagram, this book is freeking amazing […]

13 - Book Challenge May 12

These beautiful quotes are featured at the beginning of More Than This by Patrick Ness who is one of the most amazing writers I have encountered thus far and is probably second to J.K. Rowling in my Top 3 Authors.   The Quotes featured are… “You ask  a question in […]
