Blog Tour The Wrong Side Of Kai Guest Post: Estelle Maskame's TBR List

So it is my turn on The Wrong Side Of Kai Blog Tour and I have a guest post from Estelle Maskame which is her TBR (To Be Read) list. So now over to Estelle...

On The Come Up - Angie Thomas
I absolutely loved The Hate U Give so I’ve been looking forward to reading more from this author because her writing style is so engaging.





Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell
This one has been a long-term item on my TBR shelves. This book was huge a few years ago and has so much hype, so I’ve been meaning to get around to it for a while now.




The Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
I know, I know... Am I even British? I’ve owned the entire series for a couple years now, but have yet to tackle such an intimidating stack of books. I swear I’ll do it soon though!





Into The Water - Paula Hawkins

A non-YA TBR addition. I do love a good thriller every now and again, and this one comes highly recommended to me by my mum. I just hope it’s not as addictive as The Girl on the Train because that one kept me up all night!




Opposite of Always - Justin A. Reynolds
I’d never heard of this book until it caught my eye in Waterstones recently and was sucked straight in by the blurb. A boy who’s stuck in a loop of time while he tries to stop his girlfriend from dying? Count me in!




Scared Little Rabbits - A.V. Geiger
I’m not sure if A.V. Geiger is published in the UK, but I was lucky enough to receive an American ARC of her latest book and I am SO excited to dive into it. It’s a YA thriller and if it’s anything like her previous novels, then I’ll devour the whole book in one sitting. 




To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Again, another book I feel as though I should have read years ago. I’ve been dying to find out what all the hype is around this book and why it’s such a classic. 





Thank you to Estelle and Ink Road for the guest post and opportunity to be on the blog tour!

Vanessa Murphy doesn't do relationships.

With a father who doesn't notice her, it's easy for her to sneak around with her latest fling, Harrison Boyd. But when an explicit video of Vanessa hooking up with Harrison is leaked the morning after she ends things with him, her life is thrown into chaos.

And Vanessa wants payback. Enter Kai. With his own vendetta against Harrison, Kai proposes revenge, and the two pair up to ruin Harrison Boyd's life. At first, they are nothing more than an illicit partnership. Teammates working towards the same mission.

But – between late-night stakeouts and crime committing – Vanessa is drawn into Kai's life. And, as the two grow closer, she finds herself letting Kai into hers.

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 …

Three Hallows March Post: On The Come Up by Angie Thomas Book Review

Title: On The Come Up Author: Angie Thomas Publisher: Walker Books Source: Bought Myself Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighbourhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri’s got big shoes to fill. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it.

On the Come Up is Angie Thomas’s homage to hip-hop, the art that sparked her passion for storytelling and continues to inspire her to this day. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; of the struggle to become who you are and not who everyone expects you to be, and of the desperate realities of poor and working-class black families.
