Number 5: Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics 

Daughters unto DevilsThe cover to this book is very beautiful but I just did not like this book. I am normally put off of horror but this was not that scary it was just a little creepy. I ended up unhauling it, I don't know I guess I was expecting more. 









Number 4: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke UpThe cover to this is really simple but I really like it. However I didn't really like this book at all. I found so many things wrong with this book so...










Number 3: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick & Norah's Infinite PlaylistLike the other two books, the cover for this book is really pretty especially as the cover only has words on it however the book just didn't live up to my expectations. I found the characters annoying and it did take me a long time to read for such a small book. 









Number 2: Eve by Anna Carey 

Eve (Eve, #1)I did actually like this book but I was running out of options so I included this one. The cover of this book is really beautiful although I don't know if the cover lived up to how I felt about it.










Number 1: What We Left Behind by Robin Talley 

What We Left BehindI was really excited about this book and this is represented in the cover, it is not afraid to make it known that it is a LGBTQ+ book and I love that. However I didn't love this book, I have a lot of problems with it and a review will be coming soon...

See you soon,

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
