In Delirium the chapter headers are accompanied by quotes that relate to the story, giving examples of why the society is like it is allowing the reader to give context to the dystopian future. It also has great typography and the addition of birds is a nice touch. 



Number 4-All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven





In All the Bright Places, the chapter headings are used as a way of see the development of the characters over the course of the novel especially the way it is used for Violet, and are quite effective in this hence the number 4 spot.

Number 3- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

In the Iron Fey series and The Iron King, the chapter headings are used to give an insight to the chapter’s contents without being too explicit in what is happening. It also contain a gorgeous detail that matches the cover.


Number 2- The Book Thief By Markus Zusak


 In the Book Thief, the chapter headings are used to see what is included in the next chapter and has beautiful typography that make it quite interesting and adds to what is a really great book.

  Number 1- Remix by Non Pratt


Remix is set at a fictional festival so it is used to good effect, the fact that the chapter headings are song titles for example The Fall out Boy song thnks fr th mmrs. Although I have not read the book I feel that the songs would add to the theme of the book quite well.

 Honourable Mentions

-     Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- Cath the main character is a fan fiction writer and both the book she writes fan fiction about and her own fan fiction is used effectively in this book.

-      Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews- The chapter headings are equally as funny as the book itself and reflect Greg’s personality also the design is also very nice.  

-      Unwind by Neal Shusterman- The book uses extracts from today’s society and the dystopian society within relating it to the book's content, both Unwind and Delirium do this effectively in their headings.   

-      City of Heavenly Fire and the rest of the TMI series by Cassandra Clare- Cassandra Clare used chapter headings as a way of a vague description of the chapter but does them in her own unique way.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
