Jingle Bell Tag

I was in the mood for a nice Christmassy tag and when I seen this one popping up in the blogosphere I thought it was perfect! Please see the original tag HERE!

1What book do you want to see under the Christmas tree?

I would love to get a copy of The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand. I read it this month and absolutely loved it, so I would be really happy to have a copy for my own collection!


2What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

I would have to say Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I loved this introductory book to what I am hoping is going to be a new favourite series of mine!


3Which book has the most festive look to it?

One Day in December by Josie Silver – this definitely gives me Christmassy vibes!


4What book unleashes your inner child?

From my collection I would have to say Spot by Eric Hill. This is the first book that I ever remember reading back when I was in preschool when I was about 3/4 yrs old


5Your favourite villain…

I would have to say favourite character I love to hate would have to be Prince Magnus from the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes.


6Name your favourite TWO couples…

Some of my favourites are Rhysand & Feyre from the ACOTAR Series by Sarah J Maas and also Lucy & Joshua from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne!!!


What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

I would love to give my followers Dance of Thieves by Mary E Pearson! Not only does it have a beautiful cover I also think it is wildly underrated!

End of Year Book Tag

I’ve seen this tag floating around booktube and the blogosphere and since it’s now the start of November I figured why not give it a go!

Picture1No, every book I have started this year I have completed. I will interpret this as series I started that I need to finish and for that I am going to go with the Falling Kingdom’s Series by Morgan Rhodes. I’ve read the first 2 books and I have 4 more to go!


Picture2I do have seasonal TBR’s that are kind of like my guide for the next three months but I don’t really coordinate what I’m reading to match the weather… it’s currently Spring here in Australia and I’m planning to read a whole lot of fantasy books the last few weeks of this year, so I don’t know!

Picture3I am really excited to read Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan! I loved Girls of Paper and Fire when I read it back in March and I can’t wait to see where the story will go next!


Picture4The three books I really want to read before the end of 2019 is The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily XR Pan and Vengeful by V.E. Schwab.


Picture5Ever since I finished The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima I have been eyeing off her spin off series The Shattered Realms which I believe is set in the same world but in the future! The first book in the series The Demon King was my favourite and I have a feeling the first book Flamecaster might top it!


Picture6Lately I’ve just been taking it month by month and only reading what I’m excited to read. I think because I’ve been going so well with this method I will continue on the same way in the new year!happy-reading

Pokemon Book Tag (Gotta Read Em All)

I’ve always loved Pokémon! Every time a new game comes out I have to buy it. My nephew just recently got very invested in Pokémon cards which I was low-key proud of, and I took him to watch Detective Pikachu which is now his favourite movie EVER! So when I saw this tag I knew I had to give it a go!

Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag 🏷

What is the best book that you’ve read so far in 2019?

The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima – This was an absolutely amazing conclusion to the Seven Realms Series and I have been obsessed ever since I finished this book!


What has been your favourite sequel for the first half of the year?

Legendary by Stephanie Garber – Caraval was just a little bit meh for me. I wasn’t all that invested in the characters and the magic system felt lacking to me. Then I picked up Legendary and the story was just elevated to another level.


Is there a new release that you haven’t read yet that you’re really excited to?

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang – I read The Kiss Quotient a few weeks ago now and LOVED it and I knew immediately that I needed to pick up The Bride Test and see how it compares!


What is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?

Dark Dawn by Jay Kristoff – Godsgrave ended with a massive cliff-hanger, I need to know what is going to happen next! I am super excited to see what the outcome will be.


What is your biggest disappointment so far?

Circe by Madeline Miller – It just bored me…


What is your biggest surprise so far?

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – from the way that people explained the plot and the hype surrounding this book kind of turned me off from wanting to read it, but when I saw my local library had a copy I picked it up, read it and ended up really enjoying the book!


What is your favourite new to you or debut author?

Adrienne Young – I just recently read Sky in the Deep and I absolutely loved it! There were so many moving scenes in this book and I was super invested from the start.


What is your favourite fictional crush from this year?

Aeduan from the Witchlands Series – Bad/dangerous characters are my vice!


What is your new favourite character?

It changes constantly, right now at this moment I would probably say Nona from Red Sister. She’s had to deal with so much in life already, yet she won’t give up!


A book that made you cry?

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – how could you not cry reading this book?


A book that made you happy?

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend – I loved this book, it very fast paced and I was entertained from the first chapter to the last. The premise of the book is so unique and the execution was very well done! I had a smile on my face throughout the entirety of this book!


Your favourite book to movie/TV show that you’ve seen so far?

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before! – It was a great adaptation in my opinion. Both the book and the movie were super entertaining, a little bit cringey and very fast paced. They do tackle some deep emotional topics that are very current in today’s society which I thought made both the book and the movie very relevant.


What is your favourite post that you have written so far this year?

I love my monthly books stats posts!

January Stats    |    February Stats    |    March Stats    |     April Stats    |    May Stats 

What is the most beautiful book that you have bought?

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – foiled/shiny covers are my favourite and this book is the epitome of everything I love!


What are 6 books that you want to read by the end of the year?

I actually have a post coming out soon so stay tuned….
