I’ve been thinking about books I desperately need/want to re-read (maybe I should do a full post on this soon?), and this one kept coming up. I haven’t read a Rainbow Rowell book probably since Carry On was released, so it’s long overdue for me to pick one up!

As for a quick weekly update, not much has been going on as I’ve been still getting over my illness, but I did manage to catch up with friends on Friday. I’m about 200 pages away from finishing Queen of Air and Darkness!

Hey everyone 🙂 So my weekly update is that I’m sick. I’ve been pretty ill the past few days (don’t worry it’s just a bug I’ll hopefully get over in a few days), but that does mean lots of time for reading and playing games! So alongside playing Stardew Valley a lot, I’ve also been reading Lord of Shadows. I love The Dark Artifices, but reading about London again has made me miss The Infernal Devices so much!

So here’s a quote from Clockwork Angel, because I’m massively nostalgic for steampunk, Victorian, Shadowhunter London.

Hi all! I’ve been working on a uni project over the past week, which is causing me to think about diverse YA books. That includes LGBTQIA+, and this thought process led me too…Carry On! I read this book when it first came out 4 years ago (where did that time go?!), and I’m definitely due for a reread at some point.

I’ve mainly spent this week doing uni work, and going to a signing! You can find out more about that tomorrow 🙂

“He’s still looking in my eyes. Staring me down like he did that dragon, chin tilted and locked. “I’m not the Chosen One,” he says.
I meet his gaze and sneer. My arm is a steel band around his waist. “I choose you,” I say. “Simon Snow, I choose you.” 
― Rainbow Rowell, 
Carry On

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking a lot about romance books with Valentine’s Day in the past week, and I thought I’d share one with you today.

The past week has been busy, not just with some lovely Valentine’s celebrations but also with my Etsy shop opening! I’m so excited about this, and if you haven’t checked it out yet you can do so here.

Anyway, onto today’s book! Everything Leads to You is one of my favourite LGBT books, and one of my favourite romances.

“We love films because they makes us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small. They allow us to escape and to dream and to gaze into the eyes that are impossibly beautiful and huge. They fill us with longing. But also. They tell us to remember; they remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heart broken.” 
― Nina LaCour, 
Everything Leads to You

Hi all! I started back at uni last week so these couple of weeks are going to be very busy. I’m really trying to plan so I can fit everything in the next couple of days! I’ve been working hard on something exciting, and I’ve mentioned this a couple of times now.

So I’m very happy to announce I have something brand new coming to the blog TOMORROW! I’m so looking forward to sharing my secret project with you all. Anyway, today’s quote comes from a YA classic, The Hunger Games.

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.

Which movie adaptations are you excited for this year?
