Hell Nos and Headphones by Hailee Steinfield 


Although Hailee Steinfield is most known for her acting, she released an EP called Haiz this year and it has been on repeat since it's release. The whole EP is amazing however this is my favourite song. Hope you enjoy this one.

Number 5: Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I know... I know... In my opinion, the Throne of Glass series is really hype up and I was expecting to read some really amazing book but I feel like I didn't. I did not really Celaena in the book however I have started to read some of The Assassin's Blade and I like her character more and do want to carry on with this series. I also hear it get's better? 






Number 4: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

This is one that has been super hyped when I read it back in January and I thought I would be something I really enjoyed.

Number 10: Square Root of Summer by 

I have heard people get excited about this book and I am one of them. This book's premise seems interesting and the UK cover is pretty. I really want to read.

Graphic Novel Review #1:

Title: Side-Kicked Author: Russell Brettholtz Source: NetGalley  Publisher: Magnetic Press Inc.  Rating: 2/5 stars







Graphic Novel Review Summary:
I thought I would really like this comic, it is one that I thought would interest me, being the premise was about trying to find sidekicks, and this is something I should enjoy being that I like books or graphic novels that do not focus on the chosen one however this one was not for me. I did not feel engaged with the story that after 10 pages, I did just want it to be finished. This being the case I did end up stopping at after this. The artwork also was not to my taste as well and I thought that it was quite normal and did not stand out. As I have been reading more graphic novels as of late this one was average and did not stand out from the crowd.



Graphic Novel Review #2:

Title: Tortured Life
