Number 5: City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Image result for city of bones bookOK, so this one's kind of true... When I first started to read, this book was recommended to me and I didn't enjoy it at all. I didn't get passed the first chapter. This being said with the arrival of the film, I read it again and it is now one of my favourite books. 








Number 4: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1)So like City of Bones, this is another one of those books that I really disliked and didn't pick it back up. I just remember it being stuck under my bed for months until I finally picked it back up again. The rest is history...









Number 3: My Mad Fat Diary by Rae Earl

My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary (Rae Earl, #1)This is a current one that I have not finished although I do intend to continue reading this but I have other books to read first...










Number 2: Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien 

The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)This book is the bane of my existence... I have attempted to read this book twice and I just can't do it. The thing I still want to read this one because I want to experience the joys of this world and want to watch the films. I think I just need to find the right time. 








Number 1: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin 

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)To be honest I still want to read this one and I did only get 25 pages in. I also want to pick this one back up but I don't have the time for it at the minute. One day...

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Diversity Bingo 2017

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
