June Book Haul // Book Buying Ban? Nope, sorry, never heard of that!

What happened to my book buying ban you ask? *sweats nervously*

We don’t talk about that in this household! 😛

No but seriously, I actually did quite well when it comes to buying (or not buying) books this month! All of the books that will be mentioned here had been ordered before I declared my book buying ban in my VERY HUGE AND VERY FANGIRLY BOOK HAUL — they just hadn’t arrived yet at the time!

I have accumulated 9 books in June which is still okay, I believe! And all of these are books that I’ve wanted FOR AGES so that’s another plus 😉

(ALL OF THESE PICTURES ARE MY OWN SO DON’T YOU DARE STEAL THEM OR I WILL THROW BRICKS AT YOU! If you want to use them, you may ask nicely and I’ll see what I can do! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)

Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

I admit, I didn’t want to do this tag when I’ve first seen it around but now EVERYONE is doing it and I stumbled across Mandy’s post and her answers to the questions were so on point and I could relate to so many of them so I just had to do it, too!

If you’re not following Mandy yet then you’re really missing out??? She is the queen of Disney princesses, in fact, her entire blog is filled with them! She even has her own Disney Princesses Rating System which is so cool and it amazes me every time! Go follow her blog. Right Now. Yes, I am forcing you.

(Oh by the way, I reread the Shatter Me books at the beginning of the year but I won’t be mentioning them because they’d literally be the answer to EVERY SINGLE QUESTION)

So, here we go! Continue reading “Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag”

Review: Angelfall by Susan Ee – so underrated!

(via Goodreads):

“It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.”

March Wrap-Up

Happy last day of March everyone!

I can’t believe it’s the end of the month already! March went by so fast I barely even had time to blink! I only have a few weeks left of spring break until my busy uni life starts again which is saddddd 😦

Anyway, this is going to be a big wrap-up so I’ll just jump right in!

Books I Read

This month I read a total of 12 (!!!) books. I am honestly amazed at myself! I don’t think I have ever read this many books in a month! This book blog is really helping me read a lot more! Last year I only read 18 books IN TOTAL. That’s like, nothing compared to the books I read this month, hahaha!

Below you will find a list of all the books I’ve read this month and my rating for each of them! I’ll also link you to my reviews which are either up on my blog or on Goodreads! I’ve put hearts next to my favourite reads of the month :’)

Beauty of the Beast Death's Queen Ruin and Rising Beauty of the Beast

Ruin and Rising Geekerella Hold My Hand Emma

Death's Queen Angelfall Future Leaders Of Nowhere Angelfall

Reviews for both Geekerella and Future Leaders of Nowhere will be up on my blog next week so keep an eye out for that! I also have a review written for Angelfall but I honestly have no idea when I will upload it to my blog! Please let me know if you’re interested in it so I might schedule it for some time in April!

TV shows/Movies I watched

Okay so, veryone in my life knows that I am the biggest The Vampire Diaries fan and that it’s my favourite tv show of all time! TVD is the only show in my life that I’ve been watching since Day 1. I was 12 when the first episode aired and I literally grew up with it. And here we are 8 years later :’)

So you can imagine how I felt when the last episode aired on March 11th. I stayed up until 2am to live-watch the episode and I don’t think I ever cried that much in my life. I’ve been crying all day before the episode even aired because I couldn’t believe my favourite show was going to end :(, I cried all the way through the episode, and I cried for a whole hour afterwards before even attempting to fall asleep.

I was scared that I wouldn’t like the ending because how can you create a perfecting ending for a show like that? But I absolutely loved it! The ending brought me closure and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I think Julie Plec phrased it really well;  “It’s heartbreak. It’s hope. It’s happiness. It’s sadness. It’s definitely a clear sense of the future for many characters. It should feel like the end of a nice, beautiful, long novel that you’re finally bringing to a close.”

Songs I Listened To

I create a new Spotify playlist every month with songs I’ve been loving and these are the ones I particularly enjoyed and couldn’t stop listening to this month! I’ve added YouTube links where I could!

There’s probably more but I can’t think of them right now!!!

In March I managed to get over 50 followers (we’re close to 100 now like whaaaat?!) and over 100 likes on my posts! I honestly didn’t expect to get ANY comments or followers whatsoever! I created this blog for myself because I needed a place to talk about/share my love for books. And now here we are, there’s actual people who are interested in reading what I write? How AWESOME!

I’d just like to take this moment to thank everyone for following me, liking and commenting and just generally being so open and welcoming! You guys ROCK!!! I am really liking life in the blogging community so far ❤
