I thought I would share a little post with you about what music means to me, and some of my favourite artists and songs! Music is a central and very important aspect of this book so I thought it would be a nice theme to choose for this post.
Synopsis Fifteen-year-old Ilyas is under pressure from everyone: GCSE’s are looming and his teachers just won’t let up, his dad wants him to join the family business and his mates don’t care about any of it. There’s no space in Ilyas’ life to just be a teenager. Serving detention one day, Ilyas finds a kindred... Continue Reading →
As you saw from my last post (found here) I didn't do too badly with my 2018 goals, I smashed my Goodreads goal, I read a lot of amazing books, but now it is time to look to the New Year and make some new goals!
I have such a fun post for you today! Recently Mackenzi Lee (author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue) put on her Instagram her top 5 underrated or underhyped books that were released in 2018, and it has completely taken off! I think this is such a fantastic tag and challenge, to talk about some amazing books which just didn't get the recognition they deserved this year! So here I go, I am excited to share with you my love for these books!
Hi everyone! Today I have something a little different for you! I am currently reading Halcyon by Rio Youers and am really enjoying it so far! This is a new horror/thriller release and this is the perfect time of year to read it! It is creepy and atmospheric and seriously interesting! But I don't have a review for you today, instead I have an extract! This is one of my favourite sections from what I've read so far and I am so excited to be sharing it with you!
Oh... my... GOD!! This film is incredible, and honestly there isn't much more to say than that! It is definitely one of my new favourite films, and although I will admit I haven't read the book I am actually quite glad of that fact as I think it resulted in me being more invested in the film, both in the plot and the characters, as I didn't know how it was going to end.
This readathon ran from August 9th-13th and has as very simple premise, read for 25 hours across 5 days. I love this readathon because there is no restriction of which books you read or how many books, just an aim of reading for a lot of time! This was my first ever readathon I've taken part in and I had so much fun doing it and am so proud of how I did!
The second day of YALC was definitely the biggest day in many ways! The tickets sold out so it was very busy and also there were some absolutely amazing signings and ARC drops happening! I was so unbelievably excited to get in and get started and the day definitely lived up to all of my expectations!
This year I was extraordinarily lucky and was able to go to YALC (a young adult book convention which is part of the London Film and Comic Con) and it was absolutely fantastic! I was able to go for the first two days, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th July, but could not attend the final day as I was at another event that day but even still it was one of the best events and weekends of my life!
