Marvel Avengers Book Tag!

Hey guys! I’m super late to this tag but I’ve been wanting to do it for months and since Avengers: Endgame comes out this week I thought now would be the perfect opportunity to do it! I’m seeing it on Friday and I am definitely not prepared even though we’ve been waiting a year for it! If anyone else is seeing it, I hope you are more prepared for it than I am! Anyway, here’s the video I used for this tag and here’s my take on it!

Vicious

Iron Man: Favourite first book in a series

I loved this book so incredibly much. I’ve read many series but I don’t think any of them have blown me away quite like Vicious did. It was such an awesome story with very fleshed out characters and I loved how Eli and Victor both set out with the intention of doing good but then they both become so drunk on power they lose themselves completely. It was definitely one of my favourite character driven books and I loved how there was also so many shocking twists throughout as well.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion.

April 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my April TBR. I thought I should probably write it and publish it before I finish my first book which always seems to be the case. I am aiming to read four books this month but since I did fantastic job in March, hopefully I have another stellar reading month and surpass my target. Here’s what I’m hoping to read:

The Puppet Show by M. W. Craven: I’m currently reading this gruesome and disturbing story. It’s about a serial killer who burns people alive in the Lake District’s prehistoric stone circles and he leaves no clues behind. I’m 100 pages in and I’ve flinched so many times already at how descriptive it is. I was only a few pages in and I was squirming. It’s horrifying and I don’t even want to think what will happen towards the end. Also prehistoric stone circles have always scared the wits out of me because I grew up being told they were people who were turned to stone. So obviously I was terrified of going anywhere near them for most of my childhood and even now they still kind of scare me, so don’t ask me why I’m reading this! I was only few pages in and I was squirming. It’s horrifiying and I don’t even want to think what will happen towards the end.

March 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I actually have a pretty long wrap up post for today! After only reading 2 books in January and 4 books in February, I think I’m finally clawing my way back as I read 11 books in March! How crazy is that!? I’ve never read that many books in a month before! Closest I’ve come to that is 9 which happened last year but I’ve forgot what month it was. I’m so pleased with myself for managing to go jump from 4 to 11 and I’m nearly halfway through my reading challenge as well now! In terms of what I read, that was really successful as well because I enjoyed a lot of what I read. Here’s what I read:

Legendary by Stephanie Garber: Feels like I read this such a long time ago now, wow! I was completely mesmerised by Stephanie’s beautiful writing and how she seemed to make everything come to life. It was just as magical and otherworldly as Caraval and a great sequel. I loved Scarlett so much and was hesitant to see what her sister would be like but Tella is so much funnier and bolder than her sister. Tella just seemed to breathe so much life into the story and it was so easy to get completely sucked in. The world building was just as dazzling the second time around and I’m so excited for Finale now!
