Top Ten Tuesdays: Back to School

August 22nd 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

As the new school term is about to start, this week’s challenge can focus on anything related to school. The way I’ve interpreted this is to share my top ten books/plays that I studied at school. I’ve included the blurb of each of the books/plays just incase anyone is unfamiliar with them, but most of them are very well known. As usual, the images of the covers are the editions that I used. The books/plays are roughly ordered, starting with the one I liked most, but they are all on my favourites list so there’s very little to choose between.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books Without Romance

July 5th

Top 5 Wednesdays was created by Lainey at GingerReadsLainey and also run by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. You can check out the GoodReads group here!

This weeks challenge was to find five of your favourite books that don’t involve romance. This was actually much more difficult than I was expecting it to be, but I got there in the end. Some of these books have an element of romance, but it’s not the main focus of the plot so I’m going to use them. Without further ado, in no particular order, let’s begin!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Beautiful Covers

May 2nd 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Hi everyone! This week the Top 10 Tuesday challenge was anything book cover related, so I’ve chosen to focus on what I think are some of the most beautiful book covers out there. Feel free to judge these books by their covers, their stories are all just as beautiful. The pictures are of the copies that I own (they’re the UK versions). I’ve tried to put them in a rough order, but it was so difficult to place them, and I’m still not completely set. Without further ado, I hope you enjoy my picks!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: Review

This is my review  for Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, be warned there are spoilers!

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do m
ore mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
