The Unique Blogger Award

Hi, Hey, Hello!

We are out of the Red Queen saga briefly while I finish up King’s Cage and then there will be another wait before War Storm because you can’t review a book you haven’t read yet. So that will come in a few weeks (why that will be the case will be made apparent soon) and you can probably expect another batch of them when the time comes.

In the meantime however, I was nominated by the lovely Jess for this award.

The Rules:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  • Answer the questions
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
  • Ask them 3 questions

Jess’ questions were the following:

Starting with a hard one, what is your favourite book?

Ummmm, this is a hard one. I have so many. I am really bad with this question. I think it’s The Secret History. But then it might also be Neverwhere. There are a lot to be honest. I have read a lot of great books. My favourite from this year so far has been They Both Die in the End.

Do you listen to music whilst reading. If you do, what do you listen to?

I do for the most part. These days I tend to only read on my way to and from work on the train. I cannot do that journey in silence, it would drive me insane. As to what I listen to, it varies. Currently I am on a huge musicals thing and am going through a cycle of Mean Girls, Heathers and Bandstand.

Where is your favourite place to read?

I don’t actually have a favourite place to read to be honest with you. I currently do most of my reading on trains, does that count? That’s kind of all I’ve got to be honest.

And that the question section of this here award done.

Onto my questions:

1) Can you not finish a book?

2) What’s your favourite book series?

3) What is one book that you could re-read multiple times and never get bored of?

And I tag:

1) A Very Bookish Girl

2) Samantha the Reader

3) Quirky Lady Bookworm

4) The Infinite Bookcase

5) LF Books

6) The Wanderlust Reader

7) A Book. A Thought

8) Continue Reading Here

And there we have it!

“My Blog’s Name in Books” Book Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

So I have reached a kind of stalemate with myself in that for some reason I am yet again finding it really hard to get book reviews out of my head and onto the page. And then also I got halfway through one only to discover that it didn’t save and so most of it is now gone and I am protesting against it momentarily. Also, I have a reviewed currently scheduled for a book that I am still reading and so I am also trying to bide myself some time. The Red Queen series reviews are acoming though, I’ve gone all the way in.

In the meantime I am doing another tag post because they are my break glass for emergency. I feel like this one is just going to highlight to me all the books that I have told myself I will read and yet show no signs of actually reading. Also why is my blog name so damn long? And why does it have so many bloody ‘f’s in it??

RULES: 

1.  Spell out your blog’s name. (this is where you wish your blog’s name was shorter LOL)

2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. (Note you cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodread’s TBR)

3. Have fun!  

T – Throne of Glass, Sarah J Maas – Lucky for me this is actually on my list for this year

13519397

E – Everless, Sara Holland – Also on my list for this year

G – Grief is the Thing With Feathers, Max Porter – I forgot this was even on the list, I thought I was gonna struggle with this letter, turns out that is not the case

25334576
Grief is The Thing With Feathers

I – Inkheart, Cornelia Funke – I think I started reading this book when I was in school, but clearly do not remember and so it seems like a safe bet to have this be on a to read list.

Inkheart (Inkworld, #1)
Inkheart

R – Renegades, Marissa Meyer – I need to finish The Lunar Chronicles first, but I liked her style of writing and so I feel like I might like this one too.

28421168
Renegdes

A – Ash Princess, Laura Sebastian – I am currently reading the Red Queen series, as I mentioned above, and all of the covers have a crown and some blood dripping down it, I’ve lived with nothing but this image all month, I am clearly having a moment with fancy crowns on book covers.

Ash Princess

F – Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk – This is also on my list for this year, so that’s handy

S – Someday, Someday, Maybe, Lauren Graham – I actually remember putting this book on my list because it’s written by Lauren Graham and I love her.

20 Questions Book Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

If you’re surprised by the fact that this is another book tag then I really don’t know what to say to you about this. The tail end of this month is basically just me talking about books in some guise at all times. And so here we are with some more books. I saw this over on Tabby’s blog at some point last month.

1. HOW MANY BOOKS IS TOO MANY BOOKS IN A SERIES?

I’m a fan of the trilogy. I mean having said that it also depends on the series itself. 6 books felt like too much for The Mortal Instruments, but 7 was nowhere enough for Harry Potter. I need all the books that I can get for The Bone Season  series because I am not ready to be done with it

2. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?

Let me tell you a thing, I finished The Handmaid’s Tale the day before I wrote this post which had the most open ended ending I’ve ever read and I will always be low key concerned about Offred for the REST OF MY LIFE. All that to say is that I hate them. In most circumstances. There’s those happy open endings that I don’t mind so much.

3. HARDBACK OR PAPERBACK?

I was such team paperback girl and then I threw all caution to the wind and now I’ll take either. And now I have a whole lot of both.

4. FAVOURITE BOOK?

 

I’m not playing this game, because I can’t. So I’m gonna go with my favourite book I’ve read so far this year, They Both Die at the End, Adam Silvera

5. LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK?

Again, I’m just going with books that I’ve read this year, and honestly so far I’ve read a lot of decent books which means that this was actually kind of hard to do, but it’s All That She Can See, Carrie Hope Fletcher.

6. LOVE TRIANGLES, YES OR NO?

I’m bored of them now. Unless you can do it really well and somehow make it worth it I don’t wanna know.

7. THE MOST RECENT BOOK YOU JUST COULDN’T FINISH?

It’s still Moby Dick. It may always be this book.

8. A BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Ponti, Sharlene Teo as I’m writing this. As it posts and you’re reading it, who knows it could be any one of the 50 odd books that I have slated for the year.

9. LAST BOOK YOU RECOMMENDED TO SOMEONE?

I honestly don’t remember, I don’t really recommend books all that often. I think it might have been The Rosie Project.

10. OLDEST BOOK YOU’VE READ? (PUBLICATION DATE)

I’ve read a lot of books from the 18th/19th century because uni kicked my ass like that, so have The Scarlett Letter

 

11. NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ? (PUBLICATION DATE)

The book I’m reading right now which is the answer to number 8.

12. FAVOURITE AUTHOR?

I’m gonna say Samantha Shannon at the moment just because I started thinking about the 4th Bone Season book out of nowhere as I was writing this.

13. BUYING BOOKS OR BORROWING BOOKS?

Buying. Always. I have a problem.

14. A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LOVE?

I don’t really know. I cannot think of one. I fell off the Twilight train around the same time as everyone jumped on it. But that is kind of the only one that I can think of at the moment.

15. BOOKMARKS OR DOG-EARS?

I’m a bookmark girl now. I used to not give a shit.

16. A BOOK YOU CAN ALWAYS REREAD?

I haven’t reread a book in a hot minute, so I don’t actually know.

 

17. CAN YOU READ WHILE HEARING MUSIC?

Yeah, that’s how I read on the train, it’s pretty much the only way I read these days.

18. ONE POV OR MULTIPLE POV’S?

Depends on how it’s executed. And there is always a part of me that is wishes for a POV of a character because I just wanna know how Tzain felt about all that was going on throughout the whole thing. That was a book full of different perspectives and they were all handled so well, but I still wanted more.

19. DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SITTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?

Typically it’s over the course of a week, but there are some books that I can get done in a day if the mood so suits me.

20. A BOOK YOU’VE READ BECAUSE OF THE COVER?

Children of Blood and Bone to be honest. I saw the cover and was like daaammnnn son, then I read what it was about and as like daammmmnnnn son all over again and so it entered my life.

And that is another book tag done. I enjoy these far too much. I tag anyone who wants to do this tag and get the chance to talk a bit more about books.

Norse Mythology Book Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

We all know that I love me a tag post. And well it’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one and this is gave me Neil Gaiman vibes and so obviously I was gonna do it.

Let’s just get to it shall we. Oh wait, hang on, I came across this tag here.

Now let’s get to it.

ODIN: Favourite Stand-Alone

Odin is the All-Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He is the god of wisdom, poetry, battle, death, wine, and war, among other things.

There are so many books that I could choose from and honestly I feel like using the word favourite is a little bit strong, so as I am writing this and mostly because I can see it in my eye line while I do write this I am going to say that it’s The Night Circus which I am sure will come as a surprise to no one.

 

THOR: A book that hits you in the feels

Thor is the god of thunder, weather, warriors, strength, and storms, so his might packs a punch. He is married to the beautiful Lady Sif.

They Both Die At The End, Adam Silvera continues to fuck me up whenever I think about it. I knew it would be a rough ride and that it was going to break my heart, but still nothing quite prepared me for just how hard it would be to have these characters’ stories cut off abruptly. Honestly, I think about Mateo a lot.

 

LOKI: Biggest book plot twist or character betrayal

Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos.

I knew it was coming because I saw the film before I read the book, but Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn was a ride. The same also applies to The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins. I foolishly did not see that one coming. There are probably quite a few others that threw me through a loop but those are the ones that really got me good.

Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility, and fate.

I am so bad when it comes to OTPs, why I do not know. Maybe it’s because I read so many series’ and I don’t like to get my hopes pinned against one couple because I am very much aware that they are at the whim of the author and so I don’t get too attached. Ummmmm Bram and Simon were cute. I got hella invested in that relationship.

HEIMDALL: Favourite second book in a series

Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and he is who protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.

Oooohhhh, interesting question. I’m gonna say The Mime Order, Samantha Shannon. It really got the wheels turning for something that I get more excited for whenever I think about the series.

BALDUR: Favourite male character

Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.

Hmmmmm. I have a lot of faves, but the one that springs to mind is Richard Mayhew, Neverwhere. There is just something about following his journey through the narrative. Oh and also, Ron Weasley.

 

SIF: Most beautiful book cover

Lady Sif is known for her beautiful golden tresses, although she is also the goddess of the harvest and is married to Thor.

FREY: Book/Series that makes you happy

Frey is the Lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.

This is such an obvious answer but also I feel like it is the answer that needs to be said…Harry Potter.

FREYA: Favourite book setting

Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility, war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.

I’m gonna not answer with the same book universe on back to back questions even though part of me really wants to. So I’m going to say the Rebel of the Sands one. It was brutal but there was something beautiful in all the harshness.

TYR: Favourite book with a big upheaval/epic fight scene

Tyr is the god of war

American Gods, Neil Gaiman springs to mind when I think about this. I mean the whole book is kind of about an upheaval of sorts and a fight between Gods, so it seems like a good fit.

 

NJORD: Favourite book an epic journey on water/ocean setting

Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.

Ummmm, I don’t know that I’ve ever read one…there are some that take place on the sea but not for so long that I would consider that to be their setting. The only other one I can think of is Moby Dick and we all know at this point how I feel about that book (still kinda convinced that I’m gonna get it read though aren’t I?). I don’t think I have one…not one that I can think of anyway.

VALKYRIE: Favourite strong female character

The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.

This phrase makes my eye twitch…there are so many. Pretty much every female character that exists is strong in some way. So I am going to go with the one that I am currently sitting with as I make my way through the book that I am reading at the moment of writing this and that is Offred, The Handmaid’s Tale.

AESIR/VANIR: Favourite book “crew”

The Aesir and the Vanir are the two groups of Norse gods, believed to be the old and new gods.

My mind went so blank for this one for a minute. I couldn’t really think of any ‘crew’ as it were and then it hit me, the Harry Potter trio. Duh. A special shoutout to Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli though. I enjoyed that group of friends.

 

SEIPYRTS: Favourite sidekick (non-human character)

Seipyrts is Odin’s trusty eight legged steed, yes you heard that correctly – eight legs. I promise that he is the god’s horse companion and not a giant spider that he rides around on… although that would probably strike more fear in the hearts of his enemies than a pretty horse does.

Huh? I don’t think I have read anything that is not a human…and if I have then I am so sorry but I have completely forgotten them. It’s times like this when I kind of wish I had read Game of Thrones already because then I could have probably named a dragon…

And that’s it. Another book tag done. There is most likely going to be a book review tomorrow, and maybe until further notice. That’s just the way I roll.

The Goodreads Book Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

Oh what a surprise, another book tag. This one I saw on Liam’s blog yesterday and well I didn’t have a plan for today and so here we are.

What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?

I’m writing this on Thursday and on a day when I am nearing the end of a book, but as it has not yet been finished I can’t quite say that it’s been marked as read, so in that case the answer is The Girl of Ink and Stars and I attempted to make sense of my thoughts on it here.

What are you currently reading?

The book that I am almost finished is All That She Can See. The review is coming, I am just as confused as I was with the last book I read.

What book do you plan to read next?

Currently I’m thinking Postcards From the Edge. Or it might be Eat, Pray, Love. I have 3 books left on this post to read and am currently looking mostly on track to succeed with that. It’s most likely to be Postcards just because of the length and the fact that I can probably get it done in a couple of days (hopefully)

Do you use the star rating system?

I do, just to give myself a general idea of where I stand with it when I come to actually writing up the reviews

Are you doing a 2018 Reading Challenge? 

I am, it’s set at 65 currently, but as I mentioned here I’m kind of going for 70.

Do you have a wishlist?

No.

What book do you plan to buy next?

I’m trying to minimize the amount of books I buy right now. I did just buy two at the weekend (for a fiver in the end, which is kind of why I did it. I had an itch to scratch and I managed to do that and save £11 in the process which made it feel a little better) and so am trying to not buy anymore. There’s some pre-orders I have but I don’t really remember but I imagine I will get a dispatch email letting me know that I have a new one on the way I just don’t know when that will be.

Do you have any favorite quotes? Share a few.

I have so many. None that are saved on Goodreads or anything because I forget that is a feature on there.

But I’m only going to put one here from one of my always recommend books, The Night Circus (because it is just one the most stunningly written books that I have ever read)

‘You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.’

Who are your favorite authors?

I have a lot. Obviously, Neil Gaiman. Donna Tartt. Samantha Shannon and Alwyn Hamilton are up there. Erin Morgenstern (yes, on the back off one book alone). I’m loving Kiersten White and her world building. Carrie Fisher has a brilliant way with words. I actually not necessarily hate Hemingway. Like I said there are a lot, I could go on.

Have you joined any groups?

I don’t think so (also didn’t bother to check whether I had). I don’t really utilize the site the way that I can to be honest. I just track my books with it.

The 90s Kids Book Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

You know how much I love me a tag post, especially when they also involve books and this one is based on the 90s. I was born in the 90s and was 7 when it ended so you know I was kind of a 90s kid.

Like the whole of The Mortal Instruments… I mean I read it but I hated it pretty much the entire time. I do not understand the hype.

BASICALLY THE COOLEST THING YOU GOT TO DO IN SCIENCE CLASS WAS WATCH BILL NYE. HE HAS A NETFLIX SHOW AGAIN!

A BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.

It’s not so much that they’ve taught me anything new or anything, but there are definitely some things that I’ve been reminded me about some things, like Big Magic. However I do feel like I might learn some things from a lot of the non-fiction books that I have slated to read this year and upcoming in the next few weeks.

And that’s yet another book tag done on this here blog. There’s another book review coming tomorrow because I’m still just moving through these books at quite a pace. Also, I have like 4 books to read over the next few weeks of February that I had listed earlier in the year.

Reading Resolutions Tag

Hi, Hey, Hello!

Part of me feels like it is going against the grain to do something with the word resolutions in the title when we are now finally out of the first month of the year, but here we are, it’s a tag post. I like books. I like reading. This is where we are.

Welcome to February.

(Oh also, I saw this post over here)

1. An author you’d like to read (that you’ve never read before).

Alwyn Hamilton was one, but I’m reading her books now. Victoria Aveyard’s is also someone’s books that I’m excited to read. And just because of the continual hype Sarah J Maas.

2. A book you’d like to read.

Ummmmm, every book on my reading list this year.

3. A classic you’d like to read.

Sense and Sensibility Jane Austen is (I think) the only classic I have scheduled to read this year.

4. A book you’d like to re-read.

I am not big on re-reading just because I always start thinking about the new books I could be reading, but there is a part of me that is really itching to re-read both Pride and Prejudice and also Philosopher’s Stone.

5. A book you’ve had for ages and want to read.

Again, there are so many. I’m slowly making my way through them. I actually cannot remember when most of my books actually entered my life and therefore I cannot provide an accurate answer.

6. A big book you’d like to read.

IT, Stephen King. It stresses me out how big it is whenever I see it on a bookshelf.

7. An author you’ve previously read and want to read more of.

I will not rest until I have read all of Neil Gaiman’s bibliography.

8. A book you got for Christmas and would like to read.

I didn’t get any books for Christmas that I didn’t buy myself. I guess the ones that I got closest to that period of time would be The Belles which has just entered my life and I am excited to get to it later this year.

9. A series you want to read from start to finish.

I am currently doing that with Rebel in the Sands but also The Red Queen series.

10. A series you want to finish that you’ve already started.

Almost all of them. I have started so many series’ in my time. The Lunar Chronicles is the one that comes to mind the quickest. It’s been over 2 years since I read the first one.

11. Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2018?

I do set reading goals. Or at least I have started doing so over the past couple of years just because it helps to focus me a little bit more in terms of reading and not getting overwhelmed by choices.

12. Any other reading goals?

Not really. I mean read more things outside of fiction, which I can actually achieve this year as there are a lot of non-fiction books on my list which is the most I’ve read in a while.
