I’m back with another tag, this one I found on Lucy’s blog – That Book Gal so make sure to go and check it out! She’s amazing!
I love Would you Rather questions and ask them all the time to my family and annoy them – so this is quite literally the most perfect tag for me! You can check out the original video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcZFaBgg7xw.
Let’s get straight into it!
Would You Rather…
Read only trilogies or stand-alones?
I really love trilogies so I’m going to say that! Although I am reading a lot more standalones recently!

As I’m easing myself back into blogging, I’m trying to do some tags as they’re fun for the whole family! I find them fun to do, and a lot quicker than a review, and I hope you’re enjoying them too!
It’s finally the best time of the year – AUTUMN!!!! I have been sweating since the start of summer so I am so ready for weather that includes wearing jumpers, drinking hot drinks and cuddling under some blankets!!!
Also BOOK RELEASE TIME ANYONE??? My bank account is going to SUFFER!! Anyway this week I’ve finally started back at work after 3 months off sick (catch up on what’s been going on here – Where Have I Been?) so I’m sorry if my blog posts are a bit infrequent – it’s a pretty scary week for me!!!
Anyway thank you to my lovely Sarah from Book Hooked Nook tagged me in this – go check her out!
Best autumnal themed book cover?
I don’t know why but this book gives me strong Autumn feels! Maybe because of the colours??

As probably the entire world knows, Taylor Swift’s new album, Lover, was released the other week and I am OBSESSED WITH IT. I haven’t stopped listening to it at all, and of course I ranked all the songs in order of my favourites – but they keep changing!!!
Currently I’m loving The Man, Lover and Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince – but honestly ask me tomorrow and it will probably be different!
Anyway I saw this tag over at BookLoversBlog and knew I had to have a go! I even made my own graphics for this tag because I’m SO excited!! This tag was created by Vicky over at What Vicky Reads – so make sure to go check both of those blogs out!
Here are the rules of the tag:
- Thank the creator, that’s Vicky from What Vicky Read.
- Tag 5 friends.
- Have fun!
Let’s get into it!
“It isn’t love, it isn’t hate it’s just indifference”
Unfortunately this used to be SO many books on my TBR! Recently it was Moby Dick – I completely forgot I even owned this book!

Today I wanted to talk about some books that have been extremely influential in my life, and ones that I don’t think I’d be who I am now without reading them in my life!
I love being nostalgic about books, and I can’t wait to share some of my all time favourites with you!
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Reading Matilda was the first time I ever read about someone who loved reading as much as I did. I’ve grown up in a family of readers, but none of my friends ever really read. It was so inspiring reading about someone who wasn’t part of my family who loved reading so much and really developed my love for books, and then seeing her do magic? It was THE BEST!

I’m back with a post featuring some 2019 book releases that are already out, but that I want to eventually get around to reading! I am so excited for all of these!
I’ve been using my library a lot more recently as I can’t really justify buying books at the moment, so hopefully they get some of these in so I can read them! I’m loving using the library and they are getting some new books in quite frequently so I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
Until then I will share my excitement with you guys, and feel free to let me know down below what releases you’re excited for!
With The Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
First off this cover is GORGEOUS. Also this sounds so unique and so brilliant. I’ve read nothing but amazing reviews about it, and it has really made me super hyped for it! I love a good contemporary and one about a single mum following her dreams as a chef? It just sounds so wholesome and I can’t wait!

The Darkest Minds has been on my TBR for so long, I keep putting it off for some reason!
A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet.
Circe – it seems so good, but I’m just also very wary as to whether it’s my thing.
I hope you all enjoyed this tag! I loved doing it, and exposing just how many books I really need to get around to reading!! What do you think to my answers? Which books should I get to first?
Until next time,
Title: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman // Review
Release: 7th February 2017
Synopsis: The great Norse myths, which have inspired so much of modern fiction, are dazzlingly retold by Neil Gaiman. Tales of dwarfs and frost giants, of treasure and magic, and of Asgard, home to the gods: Odin the all-father, highest and oldest of the Aesir; his mighty son Thor, whose hammer Mjollnir makes the mountain giants tremble; Loki, wily and handsome, reliably unreliable in his lusts; and Freya, more beautiful than the sun or the moon, who spurns those who seek to control her.
A wonderful insight into the world of Norse Mythology, and the trials of the gods.

Synopsis: When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the bookstore where Joe works, he is instantly smitten. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realises and much more to Beck than her perfect facade. And the obsessive relationship quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences…
This was unlike anything I have ever read before. Truly a unique story from start to finish.

Title: Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller
Release: 27th February 2018
Synopsis: My father’s ships will be at the siren’s mercy. We will be the ones to reach the island first and claim its treasure for ourselves. Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will be facing her father’s justice. When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first… after all, she’s the daughter of the Siren Queen.
The final installment in the duology is truly an outstanding story of love, betrayal, and finding yourself.
