Books I Read in High School!

Hey guys! Since it was recently World Book Day (yay!), I thought it would be fun to look back on some of my favourite books I read in high school! It will be interesting to see how I progressed from children’s books to young adult books! You can see as the list goes on how the covers go from being really light and girly to being dark and filled to the brim with fantasy!

1) Jacqueline Wilson books

I first started reading Jacqueline Wilson’s books in primary school and carried on when I started Year 7! It was absolute heaven seeing all her books in stock in the school library! I’d grab one of a shelf and spend my lunch hour just getting lost in her books! It was very sad reaching that point where I no longer had the same interest or enthusiasm for her books but I would love to thank her for all the wonderful stories she wrote! I think I stopped reading them in Year 8 but I’m not too sure. It was so hard to pick which ones to include in this post because I love so many of them!

FairyLoot Unboxing: February 2017!

Hey guys! This is very different to what I normally post but I got my first FairyLoot box for my birthday and I really loved it! I thought I’d share with you all everything I got in the box because you get so much! They are such cute little items, it made me so happy unboxing it!

Incase you haven’t heard of them, FairyLoot is a YA fantasy monthly subscription box based in the UK. In every book you receive one recently published Young Adult fantasy book and several bookish goodies related to the book’s theme! The theme for February was Emperors & Fugitives! So lets get into it!

The first item was a really cute candle called Kalusian Sunset! It smells amazing and although I don’t buy candles, I’m just not that in to them, this one is actually really pretty! It’s freaking purple! My favourite colour is purple so it looks even more beautiful to me! It has gorgeous artwork on the outside and the lid has a really cool design. It says that it was named by the author of the month and that the name will make sense after you read the book. That makes me really curious and excited to read it now!

February Wrap Up!

I am pretty pleased with the books I managed to read this month! Although I read more at the start of the month than I did at the end!

Nevernight1) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m still unsure of whether or not I will read the second book in this series! I thought it was a standalone and I’m a little disappointed that it’s not because it was a good story but I don’t feel like I can commit to a series? Like the start of the book was so boring and confusing but then it got so damn good and I really enjoyed the second half! Maybe if the cover is as gorgeous as this one I’ll get it because I can’t resist having a pretty cover on my shelf, it’s so bad.
