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...

Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. Let the hunt continue...









Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next year?

Northern Lights (His Dark Materials, #1)Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman- With the Book of Dust coming out in November this is a book series that I really need to catch up with.










Q3) Most anticipated read? 

FreshersIt Only Happens in the MoviesOK, I have three which are It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne, Freshers by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivision and the new John Green book that got announced yesterday! I can't believe we are getting a new John Green book, I am so excited!!!!! 






Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I mentioned in the last one that I would like to write about the concept of strong female characters in general and this is something that I would love to do. 

Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

My 20 things I have learned in 20 years blog post. 

Q6) Book you hate?

When Everything Feels Like the MoviesOK, hate is a strong word but I really dislike When It Feels Like The Movies because I didn't like the main character but I can see why the story was written. 










Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

Holly Black- I just like her books. 

Q8) Current read?

Eliza and Her MonstersEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia- It is really good so far!!!











Q9) Next on your TBR?

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs- I just have a feeling that it is the right time to continue with this series.











Q10) What is next for your blog?


Onwards and Upwards I hope!!

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'…

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…

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 …
