Beautiful Quotes #111 / The Sun is Also a Star

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

It’s been a busy week! I started back at uni after the Christmas/New Year break, and I have a deadline this Friday so I’ve been working hard on that project all day today.

I also went shopping with some lovely friends and visited family over the weekend. I’m still reading The Mortal Instruments and I love this series! I finished City of Ashes last night (review coming tomorrow!) and I started City of Glass today.

Onto a very different story now but one I love just as much. Today’s beautiful quote comes from The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. I thought this one was fitting as the movie is being released this summer and I’m very excited for it!

“There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.” 
― Nicola Yoon, 
The Sun Is Also a Star

Beautiful Quotes #110 / Clockwork Princess

Hi everyone! I’ve had an incredibly busy but wonderful day today at one of the best places ever – the Harry Potter studio tour. I’ll have a full discussion on Sunday with photos but I need time to sort them as I took over 250! Thank you to my boyfriend Josh for the best birthday present ever.

I’ve also been reading The Mortal Instruments and looking back on 2018 reading. I adored The Infernal Devices and one of those books might be my favourite of 2018! Have a look tomorrow in my wrap-up and see.

“You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”

Beautiful Quotes #109 / Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hi readers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is still enjoying the festive season 🙂 For me, it’s incredibly calm at the moment, that lovely period between Christmas and New Year when you don’t even know the day of the week. Neither me or my boyfriend go back to uni/work until next week, and I am absolutely treasuring this time.

The past week have been full of visiting family, relaxing, watching films, reading, playing games and squeezing in some uni work for me! I finished Clockwork Princess last night and my review of the wondrous book is going up tomorrow. I’m taking a break to read My True Love Gave to Me before I pick up The Mortal Instruments!

Today’s book actually includes a short story from My True Love Gave to Me by Rainbow Rowell, alongside some beautiful illustrations and another of her short stories, Kindred Spirits. Although I have my own problems with this book, I do adore the collectable factor and how gorgeous it is in real life!

Beautiful Quotes #108 / The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily

Twelve Days of Christmas – Day 4

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hello my lovely readers! I can’t believe that in exactly a weeks time it’ll be Christmas Eve! What a lovely thought. I’m definitely feeling more festive now I have a break from uni, and I’m spending the next week preparing and baking before the big day. But what have I been up to this past week?

  • As I mentioned above, I finished uni! My last week before Christmas was a very busy and stressful one, so I’m very glad to have a rest.
  • I saw my lovely friend and co-blogger Pete on Saturday and I took him to my favourite bookshop for the first time.
  • I took my other half Josh up to Manchester to see the Christmas market there! I love it more than our local market and it was lovely to show him the city.
  • On a reading front, I have finally finally started The Infernal Devices! I’ve almost finished the first book and I’m loving it.

Now onto a very different kind of story with The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily! I read this book last Christmas and it definitely made me feel festive.

Beautiful Quotes #107 / The Upside of Unrequited

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hi everyone! As the Christmas festivities are in full swing, I’ve been looking back on the books I’ve read so far this year. I’ve also been celebrating the festive season!

  • Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I went out with my family to a Christmas food festival. I had one of the little marshmallow teacakes I love so much!
  • I’ve spent all evening wrapping presents in preparation for the big day.
  • I finish uni this week for the holidays, so I’ve been working on my project which is due in the New Year!

So here’s a quote from one of the books I enjoyed this year!

“Something like that. But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time just intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.”

Beautiful Quotes #106 / Let It Snow

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hi lovelies! It’s CHRISTMASS!!! Well, maybe not quite, but it’s that time of year that I can finally start feeling festive. I’ve also been managing to read more – which is probably partly due to our Xbox not working properly this weekend. 😛 So what else have I done in the past week?

  • My boyfriend and I put up our Christmas tree over the weekend! It looks so pretty and festive (and I finally have somewhere to store the presents).
  • I’ve been working hard with uni and I went out on a test photography shoot today.
  • I’ve also been brainstorming for Christmas blog posts and I’m very excited!

I thought for this weeks post I’d include a quote from a Christmassy book!

Beautiful Quotes #105 / Songs About a Girl

Beautiful Quotes is a weekly meme hosted by me, where I post some of my favourite quotes. Any other bloggers are welcome to join me in this and just link my blog!

Hello my lovely readers! A lot has happened in the past week and I’ve been busy. I didn’t manage to get much reading in until I finally picked up Songs About a Boy last night and suddenly I can’t stop reading! I’m already 150 pages in and the pages are speeding by. So what’s kept me so busy?

  • I had my good friend Amy over for a couple of days last week! I showed her my city and we went to the local Christmas market and to a concert.
  • My boyfriend and I went to Comic Con yesterday! Near us, we have one in March and one in November, and we try to go to each one. It was extremely busy but a lot of fun!
  • I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping, and I managed to get some deals on Black Friday. I think I might start wrapping presents this week once we have our Christmas tree up!

So onto this weeks Beautiful Quote. Have you read this series?
