Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Unknown Books


It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five unknown or self-published books. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…
Number 5: In Bloom by Matthew Crow
In BloomI really enjoyed this book when I read it a couple of years ago and I don't think that it gets a lot of hype that I think that it deserves so I am mentioning it to you so that you can hopefully read it. 
Number 4: Rebecca Newton series by Mario Routi  
Rebecca Newton and the Sacred Flame
I really enjoy this series and it has less than 50 ratings on goodreads and more people should read this series. It is based on Greek myth so it you enjoy this kind of book, this is for you. Although the series is more of a companion series so if you don't like this kind of series, it is not for you. 







Number 3: Downsiders by Neal Shusterman

Downsiders (Downsiders, #1)I feel like Neal Shusterman is a popular author but this is a lesser known book and it is a really interesting book with a really good premise that more people should read. 










Number 2: Dead Ends by Erin Lange 

Dead EndsThis book is also really underrated and I don't think that it gets the support that it needs. This book deals really well with disability and has a great plot and characters and is definitely a must read!








Number 1: North of Porter by Kirkland Ciccone 

North of PorterNorth of Porter only has 6 ratings on goodreads and has a 5 star rating average. This tells you that it is a really great book and that it is. The plot is weird and strange but this is what I love about it. The characters are amazing and I highly recommend it.

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…
