Hi all! I’ve had a pretty busy week considering I haven’t been at uni – I’ve spent it catching up with friends and visiting my lovely grandparents. I’m back home now, and I start back at uni tomorrow. I’ve really enjoyed my break but I am looking forward to going back too!

I’ve also been reading a lot and I finished City of Heavenly Fire last night. I can’t believe it only took me a month to finish the whole of The Mortal Instruments! Anyway, I picked up King of Scars this morning, and it reminded me of one of my favourite books of last year – The Language of Thorns. My review is here, and you can see a beautiful quote from this beautiful book below.

Hi everyone! My week has consisted of catching up with friends and unfortunately being ill 😦 I’m on the mend now though, and still working on that big surprise coming soon!

Today’s beautiful quote comes from a book I read a long, long time ago but was reminded of last night. I saw a list of book to movie adaptations for 2019, and I was so happy to see this book on it! I adored this series, and it’ll be so exciting to see this made into a film.

“War is like a monster,” he says, almost to himself. “War is the devil. It starts and it consumes and it grows and grows and grows.” He’s looking at me now. “And otherwise normal men become monsters, too.” 
― Patrick Ness, 
The Knife of Never Letting Go

Which movie adaptations are you excited for this year?

Hi all! After a busy few weeks, I’ve now completed my uni deadline and I have a little bit of time off. I’m using the time to catch up with family/friends and work on this blog! Has anyone noticed the brand new headers? I also have a big surprise coming soon that I’m working on now and very excited for.

Today’s book is from a series I absolutely love and I’m really looking forward to the third and final book! I wanted to share this one as the third book now has a cover (pictured above!) – isn’t it beautiful?

Anyway, the quote comes from the second book in the series, Legendary. I absolutely adored Caraval and although I enjoyed Legendary too, it didn’t capture my heart quite as much. For that reason I’m really looking forward to seeing how much I love Finale!

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.”

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.”

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!

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.

“The minute she left the apartment, I missed having her there. But as with all loves, I supposed, the consolation was in the fact that she’d be back.”
