Anti-TBR Tag

Book Tags have always been a staple in the book community, but sometimes there are not a lot of them about, or they just are not as popular. Over the last couple of months, I have seen the Anti-TBR Tag going around Booktube so I thought I would give it ago. The tag was created by Nicole & Her Books so feel free to check out her channel. Let's get started with the tag...

1. A popular book EVERYONE loves that you have no interest in reading? 

Any romance book, but the one that I am really think about is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I am just not interested in anything that mentions sex and I just don't want to read about this type of fey. 

2. A classic book (or author) you don't have an interest in reading?

I own books by Jane Austen but after reading Pride & Prejudice, I don't really have any interest in reading any more of her books. I just think that Jane Austen is for me and that's OK. 

3. An author whose book you have no interest in reading? 

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who has also been a transphobe in  her views. Her books are also really long and I am just never really want to pick them up. But mainly we don't support transphobes on this blog. 

3.2 A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading? 

The author that must not be named. (The way that I have written it can give you who it is.) We support trans rights on this blog, not transphobes. 

4. An author you have read a couple of books from & have decided their books are not for you?

So I grew up on Holly Bourne's books and every time she had a new release I got really excited and now I don't as much. I think that I am just growing out of her YA books but I will definitely try to read her adult stuff. 

5. A genre you have no interest in OR a genre you tried to get into & couldn't?

So I'm not that interested in romance book, especially like smutty books. I am not interest in sex in real life and am not interest to read about it in books too. I have tried a couple of books but I can't get past some of the language. I understand why people like it but it is just not for me.

6. A book you have bought but will never read?

The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. I have bought it on multiple occasions. I have tried to read it on a couple of times but I just can't get into it. I do have an audiobook so I think the only way that I will read it is if I am forced. 

7. A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started & have dnf'ed?

I have really liked the original Miss Peregrine's series but I just don't think that I will read the new series. This might change when I finally get to Library Of Souls but for now I am not interested. 

8. A new release you have no interest in reading?  

Yolk by Mary H.K. Choi as I know that it has to do with a cancer diagnosis which I don't feel comfortable reading about now. The book so seem like a good premise so hopefully I will feel comfortable reading it soon. 

What books are on your Anti-TBR? Let me know in the comments. 

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
