Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Want To Read By The End of This Year

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books with disappointing eye candy. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the Goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey but is currently being curated, by Samantha. I haven't done this for a while so this will be interesting but anyway, let’s get started…


Number 5: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)After really enjoying the Bone Season last year, I was really excited about the sequel and currently have the third book on preorder which means that I kind of have to read it before March next year. This book is quite big though so I am worried that it will take a long time to read but I can not wait to see where the story goes.







Number 4: The Memory Book by Lara Avery

The Memory BookAfter receiving a proof of this book at YALC, I did not really know much about but on a whim, I started to read it to find that this was a book that I know I will enjoy. However, I have been in a bit of a reading slump so I need to finish those books before I get to this one.








Number 3: Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield

Paper ButterfliesSo after taking part in the #YATakeover last weekend I realised that many people really loved Paper Butterflies. This seems like a deeply enjoyable and important read and I have been told that it will make me cry. We will see about that...









Number 2: Panther by David Owen 

PantherI have wanted to read this book for the longest time. It has been one that I have started but have just put back down again so that I can read something else. This isn't a representation of the fact that the book is bad, it's just that I'm bad in the book that I choose to start and not finish. 








Number 1: Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and PrejudiceThis is one of the books that I am currently reading but I am so desperate to finish this right now. I need to read and finish Pride and Prejudice!










What books do you want to finish before the end of the year? Leave them in the comments below. 

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…
