Summer Wrap Up

As you all have probably noticed, it is now September. I know a shocker right? But with September comes to the end of summer which means that school is starting and autumn is coming. At the beginning of summer, I made a list of books that I wanted to read before summer ends and although I did not complete this list, I still read a lot of books and by a lot of books I mean 55 books including graphic novels. So I thought I would talk about my favourite 14 books that I read. Let's get started...

Number 1: Hawkeye Volumes 1-4 by Matt Fraction and David Aja

Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a WeaponAfter I got a free months trial of Marvel Unlimited over the summer, this meant that I had taken advantage of it. I had heard good things about so, therefore, I read the volume. It was a really nice take on a character who does not always get the screen time he deserves and these comics are a great way to learn more about as a character. 







Number 2: She-Hulk Volumes 1 and 2 by Charles Soule

She-Hulk, Vol. 1: Law and DisorderAgain with the use of the Marvel Unlimited app, I discovered She-Hulk which quickly became one of my favourites. It follows Jennifer Walters as she tries to juggle being a superhero and her lawyer firm. 









Number 3: Silk Volume 0 by Robbie Thompson and Stacey Lee

Silk, Vol. 0: The Life and Times of Cindy MoonSilk is a new addition to the Marvel Universe by her story is unique which makes it a good read and an interesting often different slightly to the marvel comics people know and love. Therefore you should all read it because it is good!









Number 4: The Next Together by Lauren Together

The Next TogetherThis book had been on my radar for a while before I actually picked it up and I had heard nothing but good things about it. Therefore when I read this book I was surprised by how great it actually was and really want the final book in this duology which is out later this year. 








Number 5: Camp Midnight by Steven Seagle 

Camp MidnightSo this is another graphic novel on the list. This one is very much a middle-grade graphic novel and although it is not the greatest of literary masterpieces it is just fun and has a great message. I mean I liked it so much that it made this wrap up so...








Number 6: Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

Dangerous GirlsA quite unknown YA thriller but a great one at that, Dangerous Girls is an amazing book that I highly recommend you read. Like now...










Number 7: Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 

Gemina: The Illuminae Files: Book 2The eagerly awaited sequel to Illuminae is a great read and to those who are waiting for the sequel, this book will not disappoint.










Number 8: Undivided by Neal Shusterman 

UnDivided (Unwind, #4)After really enjoying the rest of the Unwind series, I was really excited to read the end of it. I was disappointed as the events of this book kept me on the edge of my seat and I was shocked many a time. I highly recommend this series as it is very great!








Number 9: What's A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne 

What's a Girl Gotta Do? (The Spinster Club, #3)I have literally loved everything Holly Bourne has written and this is no exception. I absolutely loved Lottie's story and I am sad to say goodbye to the Spinster club but I can not wait for the short story. These books deal with feminism in a great way and are worth reading. 








Number 10: Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Geek Girl (Geek Girl, #1)I read the first three books in this series and they are just good fun and great reads that I recommend. If you are looking for a light, quick reads you have come to the right place. 









Number 11: Lobsters by Lucy Ivison and Tom Ellen

LobstersThis is a great summer read and is real and honest which is refreshing to read about in YA novel. I can not wait to read more books by them!










Number 12: Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill

Only Ever YoursThis book is a really important read and I really loved it. It has a core theme of feminism and is just a must read.











Number 13: Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven 

Holding Up the UniverseThis book was quite controversial when the book plot was put on GoodReads but it is so much more than that. It is a great book that you should all read when it comes out in October. 










Number 14: Disruption by Jessica Shrivington 

Disruption (Disruption, #1)An interesting YA sci-fi novel that was just really good! It is only a duology and I hope that I can get it soon. 











What are some of your favourite books you read this summer? 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'…

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…
