October Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I can’t BELIEVE it’s November today, what the hell?! I was looking at my reading challenge and I’ve read 40/50 books. So I have to read five books in November and five books in December. This is going to be tough but I really don’t want to fail my reading challenge, I’m so close!

I managed to read three books this month and one short story. I don’t think that’s bad but I would have liked to have read one or two more. I literally read them all at the start of the month and then the last two weeks I have been flat out tired. I got home from work and went straight to bed, I just couldn’t read. I was too tired.

Mirror, Mirror1) Mirror, Mirror by Cara Delevingne 

GUYS! Before I tell you all (again!) how amazing this book is, I got a limited edition tote bag prize for pre-ordering the book! If you pre-ordered the book you could email your receipt to the publisher and be in with a chance of winning 1 of 500 tote bags. I got really excited about this so I entered but then I completely forgot about it. It came in this massive box and I was like what the hell is this? Proceed to me squealing in excitement when I opened it and saw the beautiful tote bag! You can never have too many tote bags for all your beautiful books!

So anyways, this book was amazing! Cara did a fantastic job with the characters, I loved them all so much. I flew through this book, it was really addicting and exciting. There was never a dull moment and I was hooked all the way through! I was definitely not expecting this from Cara and I can’t wait to see if she writes anymore books in the future!

September Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I did pretty bad this month because I read hardly any books. In my defence, I was on holiday for two weeks and it was a road trip holiday. We travelled a lot which gave me less time to read and then when I got back off holiday I started my new job! It’s Monday to Friday which gives me even less time to read now. So I read three books. Not bad but I could do better. I would have preferred four! Hopefully this month I can do better. I’ll stop rambling now and get into it!

Wonder Woman1) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I was really looking forward to this book! It was one of my most anticipated reads and I really enjoyed it. One thing I didn’t like about it though was that it kind of dragged in places and not a lot really happened. I was hoping for a really action-packed book and felt a little let down that it wasn’t. I loved how amazing the characters were though. Leigh Bardugo did an amazing job with them. I fell in love with all of them and I found myself really caring about what happened to them. I really wanted Diana to prove herself worthy of being an Amazon. I found myself really relating to Diana and Alia, they were honestly some of the best characters I’ve seen in a while.

August Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I’m happy with what I managed to read this month but also a little disappointed that I wasn’t able to fit a couple more books in. I had a pretty busy month so lost a lot of reading time but I read four books in total which I am still pleased with. Without further ado, here are the books I read this month:

Warlock Holmes1) Warlock Holmes: The Hell-hound of the Baskervilles by G.S. Denning

I’ve mentioned this a lot on my blog recently and I finally finished it! Just like the first one, it was very entertaining and had a lot of silly moments! It’s basically Sherlock Holmes but with the supernatural and it made a nice change from all the dark crime thrillers I’d been reading. It took me a while to read it because I really didn’t want it to end. It consists of five short stories and they were so ridiculous. There is a third book out next year and I am so excited to see what silly other adventures they go on to have!

July Wrap Up!

Hey guys! This was the best month for me in terms of reading because I managed to read six freaking books! This might not seem like a lot to most people but if you read my wrap ups every month then you will know I struggle to read five. But this month I read six! What happened?? I have no idea but I am so happy with myself! Check out all the books I read:

Warlock Holmes1) Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone by G.S. Denning

This was definitely the most entertaining book I read this month! It was so funny and it was such a delight to be able to laugh at a book for once. The book consists of six short stories that are really true to the originals but just spin the most ridiculous supernatural twist to them ever. Everything that happens is because of something supernatural and it was so daft it had me laughing so hard. I would recommend these if you are a fan of the originals because it was just so funny seeing them in a different light. Warlock Holmes is the most ridiculous character in the book but he’s very likeable. I didn’t like Watson as much sadly, possibly because he was the serious character and I liked the funny ones more. I decided to save the second book for next month and I can’t wait to read it!

June Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I’ve decided to do my book haul and wrap up post a little earlier this month because I have quite a few posts planned for next week and didn’t want to end up posting my wrap up really late. The reason I have combined these two posts is because I only purchased three books this month! I am very happy with that and I did really well with it because I bought one from the clearance section in Waterstones and then another I bought pretty cheap from The Works using a voucher I had. The last one came with my June FairyLoot box so there is an unboxing for that coming your way! This means that I am having to combine my book haul and wrap up post otherwise my book haul post will be super short!

Book haul:

A Court of Wings and Ruin

1) A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

I am so excited to have this!!!!!! I won it in a giveaway and I rarely win them so I was completely flabbergasted! I was dancing around my room, I was so happy! The images of the UK cover online do not do it any justice! It is absolutely beautiful in real life and I’m just ecstatic to hold it in my hands… ah, it made me so happy. I’m in awe of the dress on the cover, the girl who designed this has some serious talent!

May Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I read five books this month and I am incredibly happy with that! I have loved every single book I’ve read! Some of the books I read were very random and spontaneous. I read a couple books on my TBR but then I also read some books I wasn’t planning on reading.

If We Were Villains1) If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio

I really loved this book! It was such a dark and twisted story. I knew from the synopsis that a character died and right from the start I was trying to read the characters thinking is it you? Are you the one who dies? When I reached that part of the book, I was so freaking shocked! I would never have predicted that, I actually thought quite the opposite. It was such a great twist and it was really interesting how the other characters reacted to that characters death. It’s funny because they are all actors so they can hide their true emotions behind a mask since they are used to doing that anyway. Such a great idea for a story. I can’t wait to post my full review this month! I just need to get all my thoughts and feelings down!

April Wrap Up!

GUYS! I actually read EVERY SINGLE book on my TBR for this month! That is amazing for me! If you’ve read some of my TBR and Wrap Up posts in the past then you will know that I am terrible for sticking to my TBR. I will probably read one and then just proceed to read whatever I feel like, it’s so bad! But this month I actually stuck to it! Yay! Pat on the back for me! Here’s what I read this month:

assassins-creed1) Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance by Oliver Bowden 

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this and if I’d enjoy it but I was pleasantly surprised because I loved it! Even though it’s based on the game I still really enjoyed it and found it quite interesting! I have bought the second book and cannot wait to continue with this series!
