The Extraordinary Means Book Tag

So I am currently reading Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider and knew there was a book tag about this on YouTube created by the author herself and thought it would be a good idea to do it. You can view it here. Here are the questions…

1. I would give up the Internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book…

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins seems like an obvious choice for me, I’ve loved this book since I first read it and I think I can live without the Internet, I mean I still have books.

2. I would give up pizza for a year if it meant I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride…

This would have to be John Green, I mean I love pizza but it’s John Green! He is one of my favourite author’s and I would love to talk him about his books, Harry Potter and Nerdfighteria as well as life in general. I just hope I don’t have a Van Houten moment.  

3. I would sit through a thousand hours of commercials if it would ensure that Hollywood made this book into a movie…

Unwind by Neal Shusterman, this movie has been in pre-production for years and it is a book that I love dearly and that should be seen by many people. I would watch a thousand hours of commercials just to know the film was casting or filming.

4. I would never read a new book again if it meant I could live inside this book.


The Harry Potter Universe and Hogwarts would be an obvious choice for many including myself. Come on who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts.

5. I would let my Google search history be made public if it meant I could be best friends with this author...

Robyn Schneider because after reading Severed Heads Broken Hearts (The Beginning of Everything in the US) I fell in love with her characters and her novel and it was one of my favourite books of 2013. It also has many nerdy references and I am sure we will have much in common, I don’t think I have much to hide anyway…

6. I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if it meant I could date this book character in real life...

For me, it has to be Simon Lewis from the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare as he was by far my favourite character in this series although I do like him with Isabella. I would probably donate all of my stuff just to be friends with him.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, if you have answers to the questions please leave them in the comments below!

See you soon

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
