4 Year Blog Anniversary!

So on the 15th June, it was my four year blog anniversary which is crazy to me because it does not feel that long but I guess looking where I have come from stuff has changed massively in my life. I feel like in the last year I have managed to do some great things on my blog especially the Three Hallows Book Club which I do with Alex and Rachel, but I feel like I have disconnected with a lot of the community in the most part. I might write something about this soon but this is definitely something that I would like to improve on!

Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. I don't think it will ever be beaten though but I would love to reread it soon.

Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next 
Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2)
It's funny because of my answer last year was the Northern Lights which I am finally reading but my answer will be Muse Of Nightmares by Laini Taylor as I really loved the first book!

Q3) Most anticipated read? 

Let̢۪s Call It a Doomsday
Let's Call It Doomsday by Katie Henry- I loved Heretics Anonymous so I can't wait to read her next book. I am also really lucky to have an ARC so hopefully, I can read it soon!

Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I would love to write more fiction or just creative writing on my blog I guess. 

Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

I really do like my Dear Amy Powis post as it means a lot to me. 

Q6) Book you hate?
The November Criminals
I dislike a lot of negative things about books but I can not support a book that has Holocaust jokes and this is the November Criminals by Sam Munson so you can guess why I hate this book... This was my answer for last year as well and I just haven't read that many really bad books so it stays!

Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

John Green- I love John Green. I will probably never meet him but I really want to. Again this is the same answer as last year but I love the guy in a really platonic and admiration kind of way. I also mean Hank this year so I want to go two for two on the Green brothers. 

Northern Lights (His Dark Materials, #1)
Q8) Current read?

Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman- I am finally reading this one and I do quite enjoy it although I would say that the start was very slow.

Q9) Next on your TBR?

I have been thinking about this for the last like five minutes and I don't really know. I have a lot that I am really excited about so it could be anything.

Q10) What is next for your blog?

Onwards and Upwards I hope!! I would also like to upload more regularly and to engage more with the book community!

So that's it! I still can't believe that I have been blogging for so long and hope to see you all next year!

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
