tales1) Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

I am so excited to read this! It’s basically a book they refer to in Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children and it’s full of fairytales about the peculiar.

REVIEW: A World Without You by Beth Revis

A World Without YouTitle: A World Without You by Beth Revis
Pages: 384
Published by: Razorbill
Publication date: 19th July 2016
Genre: Contemporary
Format: Hardback
Amazon UK – Book Depository

Synopsis:

What if finding her means losing himself?

Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his worried parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have “superpowers.”

At the Academy, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bop open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age.

But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she’s not actually dead. He believes that she’s stuck somewhere in time – that he somehow left her in the past, and that now it’s his job to save her. And as Bo becomes more and more determined to save Sofia, he must decide whether to face his demons head-on or succumb to a psychosis that will let him be with the girl he loves.

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You WOULDN’T Want to Trade Places With

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

This is such an interesting topic for this week! I’m excited to do this but I feel kind of bad for the characters I’m choosing! If you haven’t read any of these books, please do not read my reasons for not trading places because there will be spoilers.

A Thousand Pieces of You1) Marguerite Caine (A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray)

Whilst I think it would be freaking awesome travelling to alternate dimensions, you are pretty much stealing another person’s body and controlling them which isn’t fun at all as Marguerite learns during Ten Thousand Skies Above You. Plus, after what happened to her dad and Theo, it is quite a dangerous game to play.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to See as TV Shows

I really struggled with this one because there’s a lot of books I want to see as films rather than tv shows! I never really thought of a book being a tv show because it automatically just gets made straight into a movie. But there are some books I think would make great tv shows if done correctly!

Clockwork Angel1) The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

I do not like the new tv show for The Mortal Instruments. I thought season one was awful and was shocked it got renewed for a second season. Nonetheless, I would love to see The Infernal Devices made into a tv show! I think the books are too complicated to be made into films just because so much happens in them! It would be great to see them spread out over several series possibly. But I’d be so picky about the characters because I have formed such vivid images of them in my head!

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You’d Want as Family

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

I wasn’t going to do this post at first because my mind drew a complete blank when I first saw this topic. But I thought about it some more and I have a very random collection of characters I’d like to share with you!

Bane1) Magnus Bane (The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare)

Who wouldn’t want Magnus Bane as their friend or family member? He’s just a very sarcastic character and I think he would be a hilarious family member who always makes everyone laugh with his witty comments.
