Illumicrate Unboxing: May 2021 ‘Change Your Stars’

Hey guys! Today I’ll be unboxing Illumicrate’s May book only box and unfortunately, I was spoiled for this on Twitter. A couple weeks ago I saw some tweets saying what the May book was and I was gutted because I like not knowing what the book is. I know the art on the spoiler card tends to be really obvious and gives it away but I don’t keep that up-to-date with new releases, so a lot of the time it’s a surprise for me what the book is. I wasn’t happy about being spoiled but at least I didn’t know what the book would actually look like. It’s such a pretty edition and I’m very excited to read it.

WWW Wednesday – January 2021

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week and your reading for 2021 is off to a good start. I have only read three books so far and I’m hoping a little reading update will spur me on as I’ve been reading so slowly this month.

Currently reading: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I have had this series sitting on my shelf for so long and since there’s a new book coming out (A Court of Silver Flames), I thought I should really attempt to read it again. I remember when I first read A Court of Thorns and Roses I absolutely adored it and that hasn’t changed in the slightest. Admittedly, I was hesitant going into it but honestly I had nothing to worry about. The plot is great, the characters are great and I’m just having a great time with it overall. I don’t think I need to explain what this book is about; it’s an immensely popular series and literally everyone loves it.
