Appreciation Post: City of Bones Tenth Anniversary Edition!

Hey guys! I’m just so damn excited for this beautiful book that I had to share it on my blog! You’ve all probably seen it by now or have your own copies but I was only able to pick mine up yesterday and I was freaking out! This book is stunning! Absolutely stunning! A similar post I did for Lord of Shadows was surprisingly popular so I thought why not do one for this too? If you want the contents of this book to be a surprise then do not view this post!

This is my 200th post which is flipping fantastic and quite fitting that I dedicate it to an author that I wholeheartedly adore!

Before we get into this post I would just like to apologise in advance for the awful pictures. I didn’t get home until 7pm so obviously I had zero daylight and had to take the pictures in the dark. But I added some pretty fairy lights to hopefully make up for my sucky pictures?

See? My pictures are kind of sucky but hopefully you can still appreciate how utterly gorgeous this book is! That cover is beautiful and it was honestly love at first sight when I picked this book up. Plus, it’s signed! I already have a signed copy of Lady Midnight but Cassie is one of my favourite authors – I adore her books. So if I have the opportunity to get another signed book, I’m going to get it! The website had a signed copy and a normal hardback copy and both were £15 so obviously I’m going to get the signed one! Also, SPINE BEAUTY!

TV shows I’m currently loving!

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be talking about my favourite TV shows and why I love them so much! All book lovers love binge-watching a good TV show and I hardly ever talk about my favourites so thought it was about time I did just that! I hope you enjoy!

I got addicted to this show so bloody fast, it’s actually sunk its claws into me and I can’t escape – not that I want to! This show is such a whirlwind of emotions I feel like every episode I’m about to step on to a fairground ride and I’m going to be dizzy as hell when I get off. I watched 10 episodes in one day which is pretty freaking good for me and then I finished the rest of season 1 over the new few days. I’m in utter agony now having to wait a week for every ep – I need the whole season and I need it now! I love the characters so much! I love Cheryl Blossom even though I’m 90% sure she is insane. She is evil to the core but, damn it, I love her and I don’t know why! Everyone needs to watch this show because it’s addicting as hell and so bloody good!

1) Fairy Lights

I don’t think I’ve ever met a book lover who doesn’t have Fairy Lights! They just make your bookcase look fabulous. They are really pretty, especially at night when you turn off your bedroom light and snuggle underneath your covers. You have some really pretty fairy lights to look at while you’re admiring all your lovely books. I am guilty of doing this and I am not ashamed! I love looking at my books before I go to sleep, they make me so happy. I love my little unicorn fairy lights because I am ridiculously obsessed with unicorns at the minute.

Exciting October Book Releases!

Hey guys! October is going to be fantastic! It’s all happening! I’ve poured all of my excitement for these amazing books coming out in October into this post because I feel like I’m going to explode if don’t talk about them! Hopefully you are just as excited as me for them and if not, then I hope you have some other exciting books coming out too!

Shadowblack1) Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell 

I’m so shocked this book is coming out next week! Finally a sequel we don’t have to wait a year for, hallelujah! I read the first one not too long ago and it was amazing, I gave it five stars on Goodreads. It had the best plot twist I have come across in a while. It honestly left me with my jaw hanging open, it was so shocking and unexpected. I loved it! Kellen was a completely different person by the end of the book because of this and I’m so looking forward to meeting this new Kellen in Shadowblack! I’m also excited to see the thieving squirrel cat again, he’s so sarcastic! This book comes out 5th October and I’m counting down the days!

Top 5 Favourite Books!

Hey guys! A lot of you are probably thinking that it’s impossible to narrow down five favourite books from the hundreds you own but these are some that I just love so much. Whenever someone asks me what my favourite books are I automatically list these five. So I thought I would share them with you all and it’s a very odd mix! Enjoy!

the book thief1) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This is my favourite book, ever. Whenever someone asks me what my favourite book is I always say The Book Thief and if they ask me why I say because it’s narrated by Death. This is the most intriguing book I’ve ever read. I bloody loved it. Death is so interesting as a narrator and I loved all the random facts we were given. It puts Death in a different light because you start to see him as a person who has feelings just like we do. It was just an extremely captivating story and I became so attached to all of the characters. The ending was so emotional I cried for a while after I’d finished it. This is honestly one of the most powerful books I’ve ever read and I’m so glad it exists!

Life/Blog Update!

Hey guys! I don’t normally do these kinds of posts but next week there will be a slight change to my posting schedule! I applied for a job a few weeks ago and was absolutely thrilled to be offered the position! It’s Monday to Friday 40hrs per week so I’m going to have very little time to read or work on my blog. I currently post three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday but starting from next week I will only be posting Wednesday and Friday. I think it’s going to be difficult to post three times a week with a full time job so hopefully I can manage two times a week instead.

Thought I’d throw in a couple of book pictures for you all!

Book Series I’ve Quit!

Hey guys! I always talk about series I bloody adore and have become attached to but I don’t really talk about ones I haven’t got on with! I thought it’d be interesting for you guys to see what series I have recently quit reading. I have nothing against these authors, I just didn’t like these particular series. If you guys like them, that’s great! Plenty of people do as these are popular series but they just weren’t for me! So without further ado, lets get into it!

1) Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

This is one of those rare hyped series where I’ve read it and just hated everything about it. I noticed a lot of spelling mistakes and errors in the first book and it completely put me off. I hate seeing books with errors. I don’t mind the odd one or two but this one had so many. I didn’t like the plot. I thought it was very boring and whenever anything exciting happened it was conveniently solved a couple paragraphs later. I didn’t like the characters at all and I just couldn’t connect with any of them. When the second book came out I read a few reviews and they all said if they didn’t like the first book then you won’t like this one. So instead of possibly wasting my money I decided to just quit this series. I have no regrets and I donated the first book to a charity shop because I didn’t see the point in keeping it.
