Favourite Series I’d Like to Revisit!

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d take a look at some of my favourite series that I’d like to reread. With my massive TBR pile I don’t know when I’ll get the chance to reread these but I hope to one day!

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I started this series in 2017 and finished it last year so it’s not too long ago that I read this and I already want to reread it! I absolutely adored these characters and this fantastic world V.E. Schwab created. It was fast paced and utterly unforgettable! One of my favourite fantasy series and Schwab is easily one of my favourite authors now.

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You’d Want to Write Like

Hey guys! I’ve been loving the Top 5 Wednesday topics this month and was super excited to get to this one! We can discuss some authors we’d want to write like whether its their writing style, what genre they write in, or how many books they manage to churn out a year! Obviously I’m going to be talking about my favourites authors!

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

1) Cassandra Clare 

I must be mad not to include Cassandra Clare on this list! Who wouldn’t want to write like her? What must it be like inside her head? She must honestly have so many ideas and so many characters swirling around. I love all of her books so much! I really admire how many new books she announces every year and how she is probably just constantly writing. I’d love to dedicate as much time as she does to writing. I love how all of her plots and characters are connected to different series. It’s honestly so freaking cool and I admire her so much for being able to do this. She’s so creative.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books from Before You Joined Blogs/Bookstagram

Hey guys! I was honestly so excited when I saw this topic for Top 5 Wednesday! I have found so many fantastic books through the blogging community and bookstagram. I have so many favourite authors that I discovered from seeing their books getting amazing reviews or pictures being all over my Instagram feed. I rave about them all the time on my blog and my bookstgram but I forget to give my old favourites some love. So, without further ado, I am now going to give some much deserved love to my old favourites! Enjoy!

1) The Immortals by Alyson Noël

I freaking love these books! I’d never heard anything about them when I first picked them up because I wasn’t using bookstagram yet. I bought them purely for the covers because they really drew me in and made me want to read the books. I really loved them! The plot is really interesting because the main character can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. I was hooked throughout and devoured all six books in about a week. I loved the writing, the story, and the characters. Everything about these books was perfect for me. I feel like they’re really underrated and they definitely deserve more love! I highly recommend them for anyone who loves fantasy or paranormal books like me!

Book Series I Wish Had More Books!

Hey guys! I was scrolling through some old topics for Top 5 Wednesday when I came across this one and it seemed like a lot of fun so here we are! I love reading series and if I could I would happily read about ten books in one series from my favourite authors. I’m sure if you’ve read a lot of my posts in the past then you will easily be able to guess my choices for this post! So lets get into it!

1) Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

This is only a duology and it makes me really sad because these books were amazing. What I really liked about them was that the plot remained the focal point of the story. Both books were entirely driven by Celestine’s actions and her drive to do what’s right despite everything it could cost her. I find that this is quite rare for young adult books because the plot nearly always ends up taking a backseat to the romance at some point. With these books you know there is a romance but it’s always in the background which I liked. It meant that the books were very addicting because there was constantly nail-biting scenes which made it hard to put down. I would have loved for them to be a trilogy because I think there was plenty of room to expand on the story. Or if not a third book then possibly a spin-off about Carrick’s life because he’s such a mysterious character. We learn a lot about him in the second book but I need more. These books were absolutely brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone who likes dystopian!

Authors I Would Love to Meet!

Hey guys! I have been trying to think of new posts that I can do and I came across this old Top 5 Wednesday post and thought it would be quite fun to do! I’m sure some of you already know a few authors I’d like to meet so lets get into it!

1) Cassandra Clare 

You all knew Cassie was going to be on this list! It was a very obvious choice because I looooove her! So freaking much! I have a signed book courtesy of Waterstones but I have sadly never had the opportunity to meet her. She goes to big cities and I don’t really live in a well known city and the ones I do live near she never comes to! Very sad times. I would love to listen to her talk for hours about Shadowhunters and the future series she is planning to write! She is my auto-buy author, I am just so in love with her writing and her characters. I would love to meet her!

Totally Should’ve Book Tag!

Since I did the Totally Didn’t book tag on Friday I thought I would do the Totally Should’ve tag today! You can probably tell from the title that this tag is the complete opposite of the Totally Didn’t tag. Again I had to think really hard about my answers and spend the afternoon sitting on my bed frowning at all my books. Some of these questions were actually quite hard! I feel like I’ve used a lot of choices from the last one. I tried to use others but I really couldn’t think of any.

The Host

1) Totally should’ve gotten a sequel

Definitely The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I’m pretty sure the majority of people who read this wanted there to be a sequel and the ending to me implied that there would be a sequel and that their story wasn’t over. But, unfortunately, it’s been like eight years almost and we still don’t have a sequel. I just think there is so much more that can be said about this world and the characters. The Host was such a captivating book once you got past the slow start. I’d read a second book if she ever decided to publish one.

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You Want to Read More From

Hey guys! This weeks topic is pretty self-explanatory, you talk about authors you want to read more from!

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

1) Becca Fitzpatrick

Becca Fitzpatrick is one of my favourite authors, I adore her books! Hush Hush was one of my favourite series when I was in high school. I was obsessed with fallen angels and Patch was my favourite character. Black Ice was a bit meh, not her best book but still pretty enjoyable. I really loved Dangerous Lies, it was full of mystery and suspense. It was a really intriguing story and I loved the plot twist at the end! I would absolutely love to read more books from her just because I love her writing and the characters she creates. Dangerous Lies came out last year and I haven’t heard her mention any other books she’s working on so I don’t think she will publish another book for a while which is sad.

Books I Read in High School!

Hey guys! Since it was recently World Book Day (yay!), I thought it would be fun to look back on some of my favourite books I read in high school! It will be interesting to see how I progressed from children’s books to young adult books! You can see as the list goes on how the covers go from being really light and girly to being dark and filled to the brim with fantasy!

1) Jacqueline Wilson books

I first started reading Jacqueline Wilson’s books in primary school and carried on when I started Year 7! It was absolute heaven seeing all her books in stock in the school library! I’d grab one of a shelf and spend my lunch hour just getting lost in her books! It was very sad reaching that point where I no longer had the same interest or enthusiasm for her books but I would love to thank her for all the wonderful stories she wrote! I think I stopped reading them in Year 8 but I’m not too sure. It was so hard to pick which ones to include in this post because I love so many of them!

Books I Read in One Sitting!

Hey guys! I have read a lot of books in one sitting but sadly I don’t really have the time anymore to read them that fast. It usually takes me a few days or a few weeks now to read a book. Quite a few books popped into my head when I thought of this post so I thought it would be fun to do anyway and and the ones I have picked are ones that I remember reading the most either because I really enjoyed them or they were really shocking reads.

the-fault-in-our-stars1) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I obviously picked up this book because of all the hype surrounding it and I was really hesitant because I do not usually enjoy these types of books just because I don’t like reading books that are sad or have made people cry. Anyway, I started reading it and I could not put it down! I was hooked from the very first page and I just kept turning page after page just because it was so easy to read and I loved the characters. I had already been spoiled on the ending so I didn’t cry and I didn’t really find it that sad, either. I thought it would be more emotional but that might be because I already knew it was coming. Maybe if I didn’t I might have found it more emotional? I don’t know. This was my first John Green book and I am super happy about that because I absolutely hated his other books! If I’d have picked up his other books before this one I’d have probably not even bothered to read this, so I’m happy I read this first because I did really enjoy it!
