The past two years on my blog I have posted whatever the heck I want, albeit very infrequently. Recently I have been reading a few of my old blog posts, and I am amazed at how my mindset has changed (plus my writing style, but let's not worry about that). I had so much more … Continue reading Why I Stopped Blogging About Books
Do you ever watch a movie that you loved and wish that there was a book version of it?
There are so many movies that were firstly books, but there are also a lot of movies that were simply turned into movie because of an original screenplay. I've thought of eight movies I really enjoyed and after watching them wished that there was a book based on the story.
Sometimes I really love the premise of a book and look forward to reading it, but sometimes the reviews start coming in and I feel discouraged about picking it up. This is what happened to most of the books on this list and it is unlikely that I will ever read them.
Colleen Hoover is a new adult author who has written 13 books. She usually releases at least one book per year, so expect some more from her soon! I have read six of her books and really enjoy the way she is able to keep me invested in the plot. While romance is a big … Continue reading Author Profile: Colleen Hoover
Young Adult is one of my favourite genres and there are so many books that sound fantastic that I haven't had a chance to read yet. I have put together a list of 10 books that are the highest on my Young Adult TBR. I did the same recently with mystery/thriller and it was such a great way of organising my TBR. I would classify all of these books as either contemporary or romance. Young Adult comes in so many genres so this list of books are relatively similar!
One of my favourite genres is thriller/mystery, but I don't read it often because it takes a lot out of me! Sometimes they make me stay up at night, or make me wonder continuously what the outcome will be so that I just must finish the book. Therefore, I often take breaks from this genre. In fact, I haven't read one for at least three months, and I have a lot on my TBR. I decided to make a list of my top 10, and I am hoping to read them in the order that they are placed in this list. As I have chosen so many books I will just include a two-sentence synopsis of the book, and my brief thoughts about it.
I have finished most of the books that I have started, but there are a select few that I never bothered to pick up again. Among the ones that I never want to see again, there are some books that I think deserve to be finished. Here is a list of six books that I did not finish reading, but should have.
The Sky is Everywhere follows Lennie Walker, a seventeen-year-old girl who has recently lost her older sister Bailey. She struggles with the grief that comes with the death of a sibling. A clarinet player for school, a silent poet and lasagne maker for her local deli, Lennie fights off those around her to cope with her loss.
I am not an avid reader of books that are in a series, as most of the time I do not like the first book and cannot bring myself to read the next. Here is a list that I compiled of 10 series that I just couldn't force myself to continue reading.
