The Osemanverse Book Tag

So in September, Layla from ReadableLife created a book tag based around the characters of Alice Oseman. As I wasn’t really posting at the time, I kinda missed the opportunity to do it but as a massive fan of her work, I still wanted to do it. Also, check out Layla's blog as she is a great blogger! So let’s get started… 

JIMMY KAGA-RICCI
A CHARACTER YOU LOVE THAT OVERCAME SOMETHING HUGE

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games: I mean it’s a bit obvious, but Katniss went through a lot. Like a lot and she is one of my favourite characters from one of my favourite series so Katniss who definitely overcame a lot. 

ROWAN OMONDI
FAVOURITE PROTECTIVE CHARACTER

Iorek  Byrison & Lee Scoresby from His Dark Materials: Lyra doesn't really have the best parents in her life and both characters kind of take her under their wings especially Lee as he is really resistant to at the beginning to the series.

LISTER BIRD
CHARACTER THAT OOZES CHARM

Magnus Bane from basically any Shadowhunters book: I was really struggling with this one but I think that Magnus Bane has so much charm and a manner about him that it is hard to think of anyone else!

ANGEL RAHIMI
BOOK YOU’RE THE MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT

I think that I want to say any David Owen book because even though I don't feel like I talk about his books a lot I just want to shout about them all the time. I think that he is a great writer who has such unique and interesting ideas and more people should definitely read these books!

CHARLIE SPRING
FAVOURITE BOOKISH OTP

Nick and Charlie: Can I just go for the obvious? Of course, I ship Nick and Charlie and I will definitely go down with this ship. (Sorry I know.)

TORI SPRING
MOST MYSTERIOUS BOOK YOU’VE READ

TORI
Dangerous Girls by Abigal Haas: I had this book on my TBR for the longest time before I read it and I had no idea what it was about and as it was a thriller I wanted to go in blind. I did, however, then fall head over heels with the book and read it so quickly as I loved it!

NICK NELSON
FAVOURITE BOOK THAT BRINGS YOU JOY

EDnDDkPUYAAv_6F
Giant Days by John Allison: Although I haven't read all of the volumes in this series, I really love the vibes of Giant Days and I think that every time I think about them it just makes me happy. I also didn't want to pick Heartstopper because of course that brings me joy!

NELLIE
FAVOURITE BOOK TO SNUGGLE UP WITH

nfHXjE51
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: I think that those of us who have read this story imagine like an Autumn night with a hot chocolate in our hands or a quiet night in watching the films. Basically, Harry Potter just feels like I'm coming home as it has been in my life for so long because Hogwarts is always there to welcome you home. (I'm sorry again) 

ALED LAST
A BOOK THAT HELPED YOU GET THROUGH A ROUGH TIME

Fans Of The Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa: As I have spoken a lot about recently on the blog, I had a massive problem with my mental health last year where I felt really low. Although I was definitely feeling better in my mental health when I finished this, I think that it helped feel like I was not alone and that I show protect my mental health. 

FRANCES JANVIER
A CHARACTER WITH TONS OF DETERMINATION

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter: Again another obvious choice but I guess I am just a predictable bean. I mean this is the character that used a time-turner in her third year at Hogwarts so that she could attend all of the classes. If that's not determined I don't know what is!

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

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
