Authors I Am Waiting on Another Book From!

Hey guys! I found this when I was searching old Top 5 Wednesday topics and thought it would be a fun post to do! I’ll be talking about new authors I discovered last year and old favourites and how I am impatiently waiting for new books from these amazing writers! I hope you enjoy!

M.L. Rio and Emily Koch

These were two of my favourite reads last year and they are debut novels too! I was completely blown away by the story, the writing and the characters. I was hooked from start to finish and was unable to put both books down. Both authors are so incredibly talented and both books contained such heartbreaking scenes. I was not expecting these books to be as great as they were and after finishing them, I was letting wanting more from both authors! I’m going to be waiting very impatiently for them to write their next book and hopefully they will be as dazzling as their debut novels!

Things on my Bookshelf that Aren’t Books!

Hey guys! I don’t know if anyone is interested in this but I always like seeing what items people have on their shelves, so I thought I’d share with you all what’s on my bookshelf! I haven’t been well the past week and I just needed a quick post for my blog. I thought this would be quite good and I really hope you all enjoy it! I only have one bookcase and it’s an absolute mess so please ignore that. I need to reorganise it but I just can’t be bothered yet. Anyway, enough rambling! Lets get into the post!

I received both of these items in a FairyLoot box (I forget which one now – maybe the February 2017 box?) and I just thought they’d look really nice on my shelf. The first one is like a pencil case or a make-up bag, I guess it’s personal preference! I’m kind of nervous to use it because I don’t want to ruin it so I just let it sit on my shelf. The second is like a character card? It’s someone from the Throne of Glass series – maybe Dorian? I have all those books but I just haven’t read them yet. I thought the artwork was beautiful so I just sat it in front of the Throne of Glass books stack.

Books That Surprised Me!

Hey guys! Today I am doing something a little different… I am going to talk about books that I thought I wouldn’t like but actually ended up loving! These are books that either belong to a genre that I don’t normally read or heard bad things about which put me off reading the book. But in the end it didn’t really matter because I ended up loving them anyway! So lets get into it!

Me before you

1) Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

This book belongs to a genre that I really love to avoid and definitely do not read. Yes, that is correct. I am not a fan of romance books. I’m just not a very romantic person and reading about other people falling in love is just not something I want to do. The reason why I read Me Before You though is because my friend wrote a review for it on her blog and she made it sound really interesting. She asked me to read it and it was really cheap on Amazon so I just decided to buy it and give it a shot. I actually ended up really loving it and I ended up reading it really quickly because I was just so absorbed in the story. I loved all the characters and I was really not expecting the ending. This book was nothing like I thought it would be and it exceeded my expectations. I ended up watching the film and that was such a wonderful portrayal of the book, I loved it! I have the second book After You but I’m not sure if I’m going to read it or not because I’ve not heard great things about it. I am disappointed about that but to be honest I was happy with the first book being a standalone and didn’t see the reason for a second book. So I don’t know what I will do yet about that! I need someone to convince me to read it!

My Favourite BookTubers!

Hey guys! I’m bringing you all a very random post today and I hope you like it! I was thinking of what posts I can write and then I thought it would be great to share with you all my favourite BookTubers. Hopefully I can recommend some to you if you haven’t heard of their channel before! I just love binge watching BookTube videos and watching people arrange their bookshelves or unbox an order. It’s just very fun to me and hopefully for you guys too!

1) Sasha (abookutopia)

You probably won’t be surprised to see Sasha on here as she is very popular on BookTube. She was actually the first one I stumbled across, I had no idea BookTube was a thing until I came across her videos. I believe it was around the time Lady Midnight came out but I can’t be sure. I just love how fun and bubbly her personality is, she’s so passionate and enthusiastic about books! I especially love watching her bookshelf organisation videos, they are my favourite. I really enjoy her wrap ups, hauls and TBR videos. I love when she films her trips to book shops and what books she buys.

Books I’d Save in a Fire!

Hey guys! This is an old Top 5 Wednesday topic that I found when I was scrolling through past topics and it just looked like a really awesome post to do. Of course I hope that my house never sets on fire but you guys know what books I’ll be saving! Since this isn’t actually a Top 5 Wednesday post, there will be more than five books!

1) Cassandra Clare books

Obviously I have to save these books! Like if I could I would save all my Cassandra Clare books but I can’t so I am saving these! I have my reasons for saving these books and from the picture you can clearly see why I’d want to save them. Two of them are special editions and two of them are also signed. The tenth anniversary edition also has all these gorgeous and colourful illustrations, it’s such a beautiful book! Another reason for saving them is that I spent a fortune on them and since they are signed, I am not watching them burn in a fire! I doubt I’d be able to buy the editions of Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows as they all sold out.

Books I Didn’t Get to In 2017!

Hey guys! I messed up and posted next weeks Top 5 Wednesday post this week so to make up for it I am doing this weeks topic today, if that makes sense? I was supposed to talk about books I didn’t get to in 2017 but ended up talking about forgettable books instead! Oops! Sorry for the mix up and please enjoy this post!

So these are books I was really excited for in 2017 and really wanted to read but just didn’t find the time. I am definitely prioritising them this year because I went out and bought them so I need to read them!

He Said:She Said1) He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly

I was freaking out when this book was published because it looks absolutely amazing. Like the cover instantly caught my attention and the synopsis sounds so chilling! Everything inside of me was screaming at me to read this book and I was like okokok I NEED THIS! But I never actually read it! I bought it, shelved it and then forgot to pick it up. Very annoyed and disappointed with myself. Hoping to pick it up in February!

Books I’m excited for in 2018!

Hey guys! I’m a bit late to the party for this one considering one of the books on this list is already out and I own a copy now but oh well! I’m still excited for it as I am yet to read it! So here are all the books I am excited for in 2018! I may make another one later in the year as I discover more wonderful books that are coming out this year!

Queen of Air and Darkness1) Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

Even though I didn’t like Lord of Shadows, that doesn’t mean I’m not super excited for Queen of Air and Darkness! It’s not out until December though and I’m just like… Why? Why do we have to wait so damn long? I need it now! I want to curl up in a ball and sob and beg the publishers for a copy (I wish!). Also – just look at that gorgeous cover! How is it possible for them to make every new cover more beautiful than the last? That cover is so pretty it makes my heart hurt. Books are so beautiful!
