Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?

I’m not sure but probably muggle born knowing my luck!

#BooksBindUs Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

This is just a quick post to explain the giveaway I currently have going on my Twitter! The lovely Sarah created the #BooksBindUs hashtag to remind everyone of the things that bring us together, especially with the news being such a dividing factor in the world today!

She came up with this wonderful campaign so book lovers and bloggers alike can run giveaways (and YES they’re international!), to share some of their favourite books, or most anticipated ones with fellow bookworms!

I chose to promote these 4 books that the eventual winner of the giveaway can choose from:

  • Warcross by Marie Lu
  • Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff
  • The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
  • They Both Die at The End by Adam Silvera

There is actually a reason behind my choices and I hope that you love them as much as I do!

Warcross:

Marie Lu is one of the most inspiring authors, and I fell in love with her books so fast, so when I heard about this book I couldn’t help but get excited! Also it not only helps to bring together a love for books, but it’s about gaming too – so it brings yet another group of people in the world together! What’s not to love!

Godsgrave:

Okay so if you spend about 30 seconds with me no doubt I’ll harass you with my LOVE for this series! Mia is absolutely badass and this book series means a lot to me because it’s just so brilliantly created so I really wanted to share this love with the world!

The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue:

I recently read this and I literally can’t even describe how much I loved it! It was fun, action packed, and the writing was absolutely outstanding! I didn’t think I’d enjoy it but I was in heaven reading it, and I need the rest of the world to appreciate this wonderfully written, and diverse book!

They Both Die At The End:

Adam Silvera’s books make me want to cry, and this is no doubt going to be the same! But I can’t wait to read it, and Adam is such a wonderfully diverse author that a book about spending your last day on Earth with someone who is also going to die, I mean that’s definitely bringing people together! I hope you all love this as much as I inevitably will!

So there we go – here are my choices for my giveaway and why I chose them! I’m so honoured to be taking part in this!

To find my giveaway please click here to enter on Twitter! I’d love for you to join in, and it’s still open until the 24th September 2017!

divider-2461548_1280

Here we go:

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I have a spreadsheet on Microsoft Excel where I have a list of all the books I own and then check them off as I read them! It was a pain to create but now I couldn’t be without it!

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Mostly print definitely! I’m a physical book hoarder!

Then in turn nominate eleven more bloggers and leave eleven new questions for them to answer.

I feel so honoured to have been nominated as blogging is one of the best things I’ve ever done, so to be nominated is a dream come true!

Here are my answers to Laura’s eleven questions!

divider-2461548_1280

What is the one book you own that means the most to you? And why?

Okay so I have a few that mean a lot to me, but I’m going to say The Stand by Stephen King. It means the world to me because my nan bought it my dad when he was younger, and it’s my dad’s favourite book. He doesn’t read much so this being his favourite really means a lot, and he passed it down to me, just like my nan passed it down to him. I love how we have a book heirloom, and it brings with it a piece of my nan (who sadly passed away 3 years ago), and my dad, who entrusted me to look after it.

How I Choose My Books Tag!

Hi everyone!

I was tagged by the lovely Danielle over at The Introverted Book Nerd! Thank you for tagging me, I’m so excited to do this tag!

Find a book on your bookshelves with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?
So I picked this up because well it’s Stephen King! I love him so much, and his writing literally is one of my favourite things, so of course I had to get it! Also this has a bit of blue on the cover so it fits!

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did. Why did you read it in the first place?


The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater! I didn’t know whether it would be my type of book, but I’d heard such amazing things on people’s blogs and on Twitter, so I thought I’d give it a try! Well you can read my review here to see just how much I loved it!

Getting to Know Me Tag!

Hi everyone!

I was tagged by the lovely Ashleigh over at For the Love of Books and by the lovely Jackie over at Bookworm Cafe! I’m so unbelievably excited to do this book, it sounds so much fun and I’ve been blogging for over a year but you all still don’t really know much about me so here we go!

Books:

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?

I have to stop on a chapter! I hate stopping in between chapters because I always lose where I was on the page, and I just feel so much better being at a chapter!

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?

Not really! Normally I’m just completely engrossed in reading!

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?

I can listen to music but I much prefer to sit in silence and immerse myself.

One book at a time, or several at once?

It depends! I normally read several at once because my TBR is drowning me haha!

Reading at home or everywhere?

EVERYWHERE! Literally if I have even a second to read my book, you can guarantee I’ve already picked it up.

#ARCAugust TBR

Hi everyone!

So I’ve just finished BookTube-A-Thon (to which you can find a playlist of all my #BTAT17 videos here!), and thought I’d now have a well deserved reading break!

THEN I saw that ARC August was happening over at Read Sleep Repeat this month…so I decided that I’d ignore my reading break and do this readathon instead! I have a lot of ARC’s to catch up on, so this has actually come at the most perfect time!

The ARC’s I’ll be reading for this readathon (in no particular order) are (I’ve included their synopsis too!):


The Ugly Teapot by Fred Holmes

Fourteen-year-old Hannah Bradbury loved her father so much that she worried about him constantly. After all, he was a photographer who traveled to the most dangerous places in the world. 

To allay her fears, each time he came home he brought her silly gifts, each one with supposed magical powers: the Seal of Solomon, the Ring of Gyges, even Aladdin’s Lamp. It was that lamp Hannah found the most unbelievable, for it looked like an ugly teapot. Nevertheless, her father assured her it was real, and made her promise to save her three wishes for something very special. 

Then . . . six months later . . . the unthinkable happened. Her father was killed while on assignment to Baghdad. And so on the day of his funeral Hannah did something she never thought she would ever do. 

She took out that teapot and gave it a rub . . .
