Month: May 2020

May Wrap Up

Hello there friends!

Another month is gone. As usual I am wondering where the time has gone?? I feel like I am getting into the routine of being home now. I’m not sure if that is a positive thing or not LOL I think we are all going to be incredibly anti-social by the time this is all over.

However, this month the restrictions have eased a bit where I’m living and I was able to get some dinner at Oliver Garden so that was awesome!! I didn’t realize how much I missed throwing my money away at a restaurant 😂

Anyways – this month has been a decent reading month for me. You’ll see below that I read 6 books. This seems to be pretty normal for me. Usually 5 or 6 books a month! I so wish I was one of those people that read 10 + books every month but that is just NOT me. I cannot focus that much and obviously my reading speed is on the slower side haha. Are you a person who reads tons of books a month?? If so, please share some tips with me!!

So, lets get to it then! This is a little look into my month!


What I Read This Month:

  • Terraformer by Colleen Houck
  • The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel
  • Wilder Girls by Rory Power
  • The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans
  • The Leveller by Julia Durango
  • The Last to Know by Jo Furniss

Favourite Books This Month:

  • Terraformer – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Little Bookshop of Love Stories – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Book of Lost Names – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Favourite TV/Movies:

  • Star Wars (new one) – So fun fact about me… I have never ever watched a Star Wars movie. I had like no interest at all lol they just looked so old 🤷‍♀️ anyways, I know you are all thinking I’m horrible now LOL but my boyfriend loves Star Wars and when this new one came out on Disney+ he was like we need to watch it. So, I sat down with the expectation that this would be dumb because well a) I’ve never seen any of the movies so that’s confusing and b) I just figured it wouldn’t be my style. I WAS WRONG YOU GUYS!! This was a fantastic movie. I loved it so much!!
  • Trolls Movie – I ordered the “world premier” of this one as just something cute to watch one night and it was super adorable. I actually loved it and was dancing in my seat the whole time!!

Favourite Songs/Artists:

  • Stuck With You – Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber
  • Savage (remix) – Megan Thee Stallion ft. Beyonce

Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

Hello there everyone!!

Beauty and the Beast has been probably my favourite Disney movie ever. Belle is the best princess in my opinion. She is just so cool! She is idependent and smart, she reads, shes badass…. the list could go on forever, she is just my favourite!!

So when I saw this book tag I was like YUP I need to do this because it just feels so right.

Also – I LOVED the Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson. That is fabulous. Emma Watson is the QUEEN. She can do no wrong in my books.

I found this tag on World Unlike Our Own‘s blog. This tag was created by Kristy @ Kristy and the Cat Read.


Tale as Old as Time: A Popular Theme, Trope, or Setting You Will Never Get Bored of Reading

I have a few!

I love reading anything to do with books. So like, set in a library or bookshop. Or something to do with books.

I also love the friends to lovers trope in romance/chick-lit books!


Belle: A Book You Bought for Its Beautiful Cover That’s Just as Beautiful on the Inside Too

The Sound of Stars by Alechia Dow

This is such a beautiful cover!! I was in love the second I saw it. Turns out the book was amazing as well!!

42185079. sy475

Gaston: A Book Everyone Loves That You Don’t

So, I don’t think that EVERYONE loves this one but it is popular and I just didn’t totally love it…… Wilder Girls by Rory Power.

This book was okay for me but didn’t live up to the hype.


Lefou: A Loyal Sidekick You Can’t Help But Love More Than Their Counterpart

Jamie from the Charlotte Holmes series!!

He is such a cute character and is SO loyal its honestly just dumb at some point haha. Charlotte is a great character but she can be a little too much at times and Jamie really just was the best “side kick”


Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, and Cogsworth: A Book That Helped You Through a Difficult Time or Taught You Something Valuable

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

This book made me open my eyes and really look at the relationships I have in the life. It made me reconsider what I was focusing on as important events and important people. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking. If nothing else it taught me to appreciate your true friends and to not waste peoples time if you do not share the same feelings as they do!! (Which seems obvious but sometimes you need that reminder)

I think that Mrs. Potts would approve of this 😂


Something There: A Book or Series You Weren’t Into at First
But Picked Up Towards the End

The Leveller by Julia Durango

I actually just read this one and it started off slow and I was a little unsure based on the style of writing but then I really enjoyed it!


Be Our Guest: A Fictional Character You’d Love to Have Over for Dinner

Hmmm.. this is tough because thre are SO MANY great characters that would be super fun to have for dinner. So as per usual I will just give multiple answers LOL

Based on pure attractiveness – Four from Divergent 🔥

Based on interest – Stevie from Truly Devious 🔎

Based on love for books – Odile from The Paris Library 📚

Asking Bookstagram: Favourite Romances

Hi there bookish friends!

I am back with another “asking bookstagram” post! Last month I did one and it was actually quite successful and people loved the idea so I want to keep this going as a monthly thing!

I just love to be able to mix the platforms. I love bookstagram so much and I also love writing this blog so this is the perfect way to mix the things I like! Also, I love to hear everyone’s thoughts on things!

This time I asked all my followers on Instagram……..

What is your favourite romance/ contemporary romance and why?

I figured I would start off by naming my top 3 fav books in these categories!

  • Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane
  • Josh and Hazels Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

@sammycataspires

“My recent favorite us lie to me by Natasha Preston because it’s so genuine. It’s funny. It’s clever. And witty. But it’s also deep, sincere, and rational. It’s mysterious and suspenseful. It’s sexy and steamy. It has everything I could ever want in a romance and it was so hard to keep away from. I was buddy reading it. Couple chapters a week and I read ahead twice because I couldn’t stop. I finished it in tears. I’ve read many good and even great romances, but I feel like even though I just finished it, its definitely one ill recommend and remember for a long time! The writing is amazing and the characters were so likable.”


@barksbeachesbooks

“The Friend Zone, The Light We Lost, All We Ever Wanted. All very different. The first one because it had tons of laugh out loud moments to break up the achy heart parts”

Top 10 Tuesday – Favourite Opening Lines

Hi friends!! I found another Top 10 Tuesday prompt that I am totally all for!! I saw this one and I knew I needed to do it because it seemed so fun!

I feel like I should be writing more in this intro but I just have NOTHING to say today lol does anyone else have days like that?? So, just ignore my weird anti-socialness today and read my Top 10 Tuesday instead 😂

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

The prompt is…….. Top 10 Opening Lines. I just added “favourite opening lines” because I’m sure there are some really iconic opening lines but I wanted to just share the ones I’ve read and enjoyed 😊


41957126. sy475

Verity – “I hear the crack of his skull before the splattering of blood reaches me”

I like this one because its SO in your face. I remember reading this opening line and I actually paused and thought like what the heck am I getting myself into if this is the FIRST LINE OF THE BOOK!!


52101614. sy475

The Little Bookshop of Love Stories – “It is a truth universally acknolweged that today is the Mondayest Monday ever”

This first line isn’t anything as gripping as the first one I shared haha. I just love how real and cute this line is. I love that type of writing so I just knew I was getting into something cute and quirky!


6334889

Gone – “One minute the teacher was talking about the Civil War. And the next minute he was gone. There. Gone”

I’m not sure if any of you have read the Gone series? It is centered around the idea that all the adults just vanish and only kids are left! So, I was excited to read that the questions and suspense start right at the beginning!!


29601533. sy475

The Grave Keepers – “You should know that I died a long time ago, and that I was young when I died”

This first line made go “whaaaat” right away haha I guess it kind of confused me because I thought the book was about 2 girls who were very much alive. It caught me off guard but then I found out the person at the beginning was in fact, dead, and not one of the main characters! It definitely made me want to read on to find out more!


40189670

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – “Anyone who knew me in college might be horrified to hear that I ended up employed as an elementary school teacher, responsible for educating our wide-eyed, sponge-brained youth, but in truth, I suspect I’m pretty great at it”

This just made me laugh! We all know someone who became a teacher a you went “oh that wont be good” LOL so this just reminded me of that!!


42867787

The Widow of Pale Harbor – “This was the fourth dead raven to appear on Sophronia Carver’s front path in as many weeks, and there was no explaining it away as coincidence this time”

I like this first line because its perfectly intriguing. It doesn’t give any information about the character or the story and doesn’t just start in full blown chaos. Its just enough to make you wonder whats happening and also gives some spooky undertones!


32969999

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares – “Esther Solar has been waiting outside Lilac Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for half an hour when she received word that the curse has struck again.”

CURSE? This is the perfect opening line!! It has me asking “what curse” and just needing to read more. Its kind of sinister in a way but also could mean anything so its just a really good hook!


36099465

The Academy – “I’m reading Vogue one night in my bedroom when there’s a knock on the door, four hard ones in rapid succession: the code knock that means Emergency!OpemThisDoorRightNow!”

I love this! Its such a good mix of weird haha – person reading Vouge but then has code knocks. Who is this person??


27405351. sy475

How to Hang A Witch – “Like most fast-talking, opinionated New Yorkers, I have an affinity for sarcasm”

This line is witty! I like when things start off and you know the type of humor you’ll be working with during the book!


37367933. sy475

The Anatomy Of A Murderer – “Almost a year after Franklin Kettle shot my friend Pete Lund through the head, a squad of cops took Franklin to my mom’s lab so she could put a hole in his head and slide a small electronic capsule inside”

As if the title of the book wasn’t catchy enough – the first line just gets you!! So right away you’re like okay, someone was murdered…. and then WOW so much talk of holes in peoples heads!


What do you think? Are these good opening lines? Do you enjoy any of these ones?

BOOK REVIEW: Wilder Girls by Rory Power

A feminist Lord of the Flies about three best friends living in quarantine at their island boarding school, and the lengths they go to uncover the truth of their confinement when one disappears. This fresh debut is a mind-bending novel unlike anything you’ve read before. – Penguin Random House

42505366

Title: Wilder Girls

Author: Rory Power

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Genre: YA, Horror, Mystery

Format: Physical book

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐/5


SYNOPSIS:

It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.


MY REVIEW:

I would describe Wilder Girls as a mix of YA horror, survival, and dystopia. The author did a great job of writing the gruesome horror aspects! I would say that was the strongest part of the book.

The story follows 3 girls who are at a boarding school on an island. The girls at the boarding school all get sick and start to form all sorts of different deformities. Its unclear why this is happening to the girls and therefore, the island is under quarantine while scientists try to cure them.

The idea of this book is awesome! I really enjoyed the characters. I loved the main character Hetty and her friend Byatt. I have to admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of Reese 🤷🏼‍♀️ I liked that there was little to no romance in this story. There was some hints of romance but it was really kept to a minimal.

Survival was a big part of the story. Probably 99% of the time the story focuses on the girls just trying to survive another day. It was quite desperate at times and did keep me on the edge of my seat.

BUT this story just lacked something for me. Maybe it was the fact that no real action happens until the end of the book. Maybe it was ending that felt totally unresolved and just finished with nothing answered. The characters really kept me in this book. The story itself was interesting and unique but wasn’t AMAZING!


Have you read this one or is it on your TBR? I’d love to hear what you think of this one!! Chat with me in the comments!

Popular YA Dystopia Series Over The Last 10 Years

So, I saw this post on the goodreads blog the other day which was talking about The Hunger Games and how that book was a real starting point to how popular those types of books have become. They then go to list some of the MOST popular YA dystopia series since The Hunger Games. The link to the posts is here if you want to check it out!

Now – I LOVE good YA book and have always been a fan of YA Dystopia books. Of course, like many of you, I read The Hunger Games and was just amazed by it, loved it, fan girled over it. I agree that The Hunger Games was a turning point for this genre of books!!

I looked at the list the Goodreads blog listed as most popular YA Dystopia series from the last 10 years and, well….. I don’t totally agree? I mean they went off ratings from Goodreads so I suppose I may be an unpopular opinion? I am going to go through the list and name the ones I agree with first:

  • Divergent
  • The Maze Runner
  • Shatter Me
  • The Program
  • Legend

So – here we are. I totally agree with these ones. I have either read them or seen them everywhere. Also, not that this totally matters, but Divergent and The Maze Runner were made into movies….. again, not like that proves popularity or anything but I think it shows any overall interest in the stories!

The ones I did not really agree with/ haven’t heard much about (so could be wrong about):

  • Matched
  • Delirium
  • The Darkest Minds
  • Scythe
  • Under the Never Sky
  • Enclave
  • Partials
  • Blood Red Road
  • The Testing

Please don’t hate me if I just said your most favorite book is not popular 😂 I am simply saying that I don’t totally agree that they are the TOP MOST POPULAR YA Dystopia books for the last DECADE. I think they are probably popular and maybe even great books – I just don’t see it. Please enlighten me on these books if they are super good though because I love new books!!

Now, here I go throwing my opinion all over the internet. I am going to share some YA Dystopia books from the last 10 years that I think would be good fits on this list. Again, this is just me giving my opinion, but its what I think 🤷‍♀️

  • The Selection -Kiera Cass
  • Gone – Michael Grant
  • The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey
  • Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard
  • Reboot – Amy Tintera
  • The Eye of Minds – James Dashner

What do you guys think? Do you think the goodreads blog was right picking those ones? Are there others I didn’t mention that would be better fit? Chat with me in the comments 😊

ARC Review: The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole

Even teenage assassins have dreams. – Goodreads

51969167

Title: The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass

Author: Adan Jerreat-Poole

Publisher: Dundurn

Genre: Fantasy, YA, LGBT

Format: eARC

RATING: ⭐⭐/5


SYNOPSIS:

Eli isn’t just a teenage girl — she’s a made-thing the witches created to hunt down ghosts in the human world. Trained to kill with her seven magical blades, Eli is a flawless machine, a deadly assassin. But when an assignment goes wrong, Eli starts to question everything she was taught about both worlds, the Coven, and her tyrannical witch-mother.

Worried that she’ll be unmade for her mistake, Eli gets caught up with a group of human and witch renegades, and is given the most difficult and dangerous task in the worlds: capture the Heart of the Coven. With the help of two humans, one motorcycle, and a girl who smells like the sea, Eli is going to get answers — and earn her freedom. 


MY RATING:

This felt like someone trying to write a book based on a really long detailed movie and just skipped over a lot of the good stuff, leaving only the skeleton of the story and characters.

Eli, an assassin, was created by a witch. Her job was to go into the human world and kill ghosts The Coven told her needed to be killed. Eli didn’t ask questions and did her job well. That is, until she kills her latest ghost and finds out it isn’t a ghost at all. Eli starts to question everything she has been told. Eli makes some friends in the human world and with those friends goes on an adventure of a lifetime to stop The Coven and of course, save the world.

I really wanted to like this book. The idea of it is great! Witches, ghosts, assassins, warlords, and magic… what isn’t there to like?? Well, for me this story fell short and honestly was not well written. I felt that the character development was poorly done. There was little to no background information on the characters and I just couldn’t connect to them. Eli has a best friend, Kite, who by the time the book was done I still knew nothing about. The setting was awesome and I loved it but again, there was really no detail so I feel I missed out a lot there.

Maybe an unpopular opinion – one of the characters is trans (which is totally fine) – but I found it difficult to read because of the “they, their, them” pronouns used. There wasn’t enough detail in the story so these pronouns often were confusing and I didn’t know who the author was talking about. This just threw me off throughout and ruined the overall flow of the story for me.

I just feel disappointed after reading this. I feel that the story had so much potential and just didn’t follow through. All the characters had aspects I enjoyed but because of the lack of detail and background I couldn’t get into them.

First Impression: The Little Bookshop of Love Stories

Hey guys! Its been awhile since I’ve done a first impression post but I am reading a new book and I LOVE it so I need to share some thoughts.

The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans

52101614. sy475

So, I want to start off by saying – I LOVE a story about books, or bookshops. I think they are always so fun and magical to read. So when I saw this on Netgalley I had to request it and sure enough, I was lucky enough to be approved.

I’m really liking the writing style. To be honest the first chapter kind of made me go “woah” because the chapter was very long lol and also because there were some REALLY long sentences. However, it was really descriptive and I like how the author explains things.

The main character, Hallie, is cute! She has horrible luck. She gets fired from her job and just bad thing after bad thing happen. I really feel bad for her!! But then she has a bit of a miracle happen….. she wins ownership of her favorite bookshop. WHAT!! How cool is that?? This made me instantly jealous. What book lover wouldn’t want to work/own a bookshop? Also, this bookshop sounds like its super cute so that makes it even better!!

I am only 3 chapters into the book but already hooked and loving it. It seems like it will be really cute and as the title states “Bookshop of Love Stories” – I am really hoping for some romance! Fingers crossed!

ALSO – This book was just recently published on May 8!

ARC REVIEW: Terraformer by Colleen Houck

Deadly toxins can be hidden inside the most beautiful flowers.Goodreads

51767540. sx318

Title: Terraformer

Author: Colleen Houck

Publisher: Colleen Houck via Trident Media Group

Genre: YA, Sci-Fi

Format: eARC from Netgalley

Pub date: May 12, 2020

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5


SYNOPSIS:

Deadly toxins can be hidden inside the most beautiful flowers.

That’s what Astra Meador’s famous biophysicist mother taught her.

As her mother’s apprentice, Astra has developed skills in botany, chemistry, medicine, and, most importantly, in keeping secrets.

In fact keeping Astra’s secret was the reason her family decided to leave the Earth and join a terraforming mission to colonize a distant planet called Crillain IV. But when Astra wakes early from hypersleep, she discovers that her mother never made it onboard, her father died in transit and his body has been ejected from the ship, and she suspects that she’s not the only one awake.

When the ship finally lands and she’s reunited with her brother, Nash, Astra hopes to settle into a new life, especially when she meets the charming young engineer, Jax, and is recruited by the mission commander to train alongside his handsome son to be a future leader of the small colony.

Then Astra learns that she’s not the only one with a dark secret.

As both young men contend for her affection, Astra searches for answers, trying to determine who to trust. But with theft and murder occurring in the colony along with the sudden disappearance of her beloved brother, Astra can’t listen to the whisperings of her heart, especially when someone or something else on the planet is whispering to her mind even louder.


MY REVIEW:

Colleen Houck wrote another great story!! Terraformer took me on such a great adventure full of twists and turns! I felt this story was really unique and it was told in the best way possible!

Astra, our main character, is different. She is strong and smart and honestly such a great character. However, she has a biological “flaw” that makes her different than the others and she has to hide it from everyone. Her family has made a lot of sacrifices for her and the mission they are on is in hopes to help Astra live a better life. She, and the rest of the crew, are on their way to a new planet to colonize.

Of course right from the start things start to go downhill. Astra wakes up early, crew members start mysteriously dying, and deep dark secrets are being kept. There are SO many twists so early on, I was on my toes non stop!!

One thing I really enjoyed about this book and the characters was how many moral dilemmas there were. I felt so deeply connected to Astra because of this. She had to make so many tough decisions and it was nice because the author wrote it in a way that anyone could relate to. It felt so real and I felt like I was right there with Astra trying to solve the problems!

The story focuses a lot on Astra and how she is a biologist in training. She is so knowledgable and caring. She loves the plants and takes her job so seriously. This becomes important towards the end of the book when something SHOCKING happens regarding Astra and plants! I don’t want to say I didn’t see it coming because there was quite a bit of lead up to it. But WOW, the ending had me kind of shook. I felt happy for Astra and the other characters and also felt it was the perfect ending, however, a part of me was like whaaattt is this really happening 😂

Overall, I loved this story! The characters were relatable and I enjoyed them! There was suspense and mystery. Lots of twists and turns. A few moments of real true heartbreak, but also a lot of love and happiness. This was such a well rounded book.

I would recommend this if you enjoy sci-fi fantasy style books with some YA romance and lots of plant talk 💟
