Pride and Prejudice Booktag 

Hey Guys,

As you guys know I was very excited to do this booktag I am a huge fan I have watch everything films and shows also films /books based on pride and prejudice.

Finally for those who have been waiting for the 1/2 pride and prejudice tags that have been meaning to do without further or do.
Rules 
Thank those who tagged you.

Link back to the creator of the tag (Emma @ A Dreamer’s Library)Tag as many people as you wantHave fun!!

The Bennett Sisters – A Mixed Bag

A book or series with an eclectic cast of characters.

Non that I can think of at the moment when I do I’ll place it here.

Charlotte Lucas – The Best Friend

A dependable standalone, series, and tv show that you can always turn to.

( My laptop not logining into my account so the sizes of some photos are bigger than others.)

Mmmm probably the secret circle I love the books and also tv show which I still watch I personally think she should have been with Nick.

Mr Darcy – The Unexpected Surprise

A book or series that you originally didn’t like but you grew to love. 

I’ll have to say the beautiful creatures series the first book was ok but I had to read this book 10 times before I loved it also the only book in the series I dislike was Beautiful Redemption.

Lady Catherine de Bourg – The Domineering Aristocrat

A book or series that you are daunted by.

I am going with Paranormalcy series only because of the love triangle that went wrong and I mean she ended up with the wrong person and for some strange reason it Daunts me.


Mr Bingley – Honest yet easily led.

A character full of good intentions and heart yet is often perceived wrongly by others.

Mmmm can I say Mr Darcy when he tells Bingley that Jane doesn’t love him but he ends up realises that he is wrong and let’s Bingley know.

(Jeanie/Jen has made this point a million times since she is a huge Bingley fan.)

Mr Collins – Awkward and cheesy

A series, book, or character that you find really silly in a good or bad way.

Marked by Kim Richardson it so silly and unbelievable but in a good way for example talking chimps I highly recommend reading this though.


The Gardiners – Steady voices of reason

A character from any book, film or TV show that you would turn to for advice.

Ummm I know one can’t remember the name emmmm Carlisle from twilight he’s always great at giving advice.

Mr Wickham – The deceptor.

A book you had high expectations for that fell flat. 


Beautiful Redemption.

Georgiana Darcy – Shy, naive, but friendly


An under-represented book that you really love.


Ella and Micha no really mentions this book and I am very surprised it’s one of my faves also it’s Na (New Adult).
The Forster’s Regiment – Sure to liven up any party

What book or series would you always recommend?

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell my absolute favourite book EVER.

Reading update

Hey guys,

The most strangest thing happened to me today my friend Jenny or has you guys may know her BooksLovesJenny Lola and Jenny Read-A-Long Update we also did a post on her page on our reading update also what I am about to say her booktuber friend Wendy came saw me at the coffee shop I was meeting Jenny when she arrived to London Jenny look at my laptop and said are you doing your Notebook review I nodded and Wendy walked over and look at me rereading my post once I published it  and was like “OMG YOU ARE NOT LOLA I MEAN THEE LOLA BOOKFANDOM1001 LOLA OMG OMG” she was literally squealing and shouting that at the same time “I CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S YOU OMG OMG” Jenny was laughing I was just staring at her surprised why on earth was she acting like I was famous I’m not that popular haha I didn’t even know who she was I thought it was a stranger till Jenny told her to stop it she was going to get kicked out that was the most strangest thing to have ever happen to me.

What I have read so far this month is:

wp-image--703093563 Has in my review I rated this 6.5/5 stars it’s a classical novel it begins with the story with Noah Calhoun how has returned from the second war and is restoring a plantation home like he planned to do fourteen years ago still haunted by the girl he meet at that time he feel inloved with her and is unwilling to forget the summer they spend together Noah is fine with just having them memories of her until she shows up at his door to see him once more…. Review: The Notebook  (The Notebook #1) By Nicolas Sparks 

wp-image-815527927If you guys are new to my blog you may not know that I am a huge fan of Abbi Glines Rosemary Beach Series it was the second NA series I ever read the first book was review: Fallen too Far this is the second book in the spin-off series Sea Breeze meets rosemary Beach and also is a spin-off Sea Breeze which I haven’t yet read (SPOILERS I know) any way this series is based on the Main characters of Rosemary Beach series children and other people how live in Sea Breeze.

Anyway I absolutely loved this book and technically I didn’t break my read-a-long because It’s got green and the sun which is yellow but if it doesn’t blame BooksloveJenny how bought me the book today quick reader I know I am planning to do a review fingers crossed soon I know people may disagree with me but I am glad Lila ended up with Cruz instead of Eli I feel sorry that he lost a chance with two girls but he was able to move on anyway the discussion will continue on my review I can’t wait for the third book (SIGH) makes me want to read The Rosemary Beach series then Sea Breeze then the spin-off’s but I am fighting the urge to because I want to read my TBR Pile and not break the challenge luckily Jen’s stopping me from doing it I hope.

Books I may be reading next:

Yes I may have change my reading plan.

 

I just want to finish The Three Musketeers I am loving the book so far favourite character so far has to be Madame Bonacieux and I will not be reviewing this book due to the fact I was asked not to by Jen saying that there are other books that people have requested me to review like Love Rosie, The Wedding etc. so unfortunately I will not being reviewing this anytime soon,

Let me know what you are currently reading, what is your favourite book so far also what classical books do you recommend because I want to read more Classical books oh and if you could chose a book to be a movie or tv-show what would it be.

Happy Reading

Completing my Goodreads reading goal 

Hey Guys,

So far this month I have read 34 books which is really shocking but as my friends say I am freakishly quick reader anyway onto the reason for this post today I have reached my Goodreads goal. 

My goal was 100 books and I started the reading goal around March time before that it was a 1001 books which I put has a mistake my friend said was you tryingto match your user number. Haha

I am really pleased with it how many books I have read this year and I hope that my reading stays up to date I know that there are books that I should have read and I will get to them I would have done a wrap up now but I still have two days left and I may read more books.

I am still wondering what to read after the hush, hush series I am currently on the thrid book but I am really close to finishing it I want to read more fallen angels books I am going to do a discussion about the hush, hush series and the fallen series and it’s a spoiler discussion so I wouldn’t recommend reading it if you haven’t it.

If you guys have a fallen angels recommendations let me know down below I hope you had a great reading month.

Happy Reading 

1 Year Anniversary of Book BLogging

Hey Guys,

 

So I was currently writing my post for the BookTuberAThon wrap up when WordPress sent me this:

Screenshot_2017-07-30-23-55-04-1I can’t believe it’s been a year since I have been blogging but I am really proud of how many followers I have gotten since my first post I remember posting my first August TBR  2016  looking back at it I am so shock by how much I have improved since then I am titling in bold and adding pictures back then I just wrote it without thinking about it looking good believe it or not after my first post I got three followers.

At that time when I was blogging it was just to express my love of reading and fangirling  back then I didn’t have many book readers and those I did I rarely saw due to being in college and not really talking because they were always busy so I didn’t expect to have as many followers as I do now so thank you for following me and being patient with how long it takes me to post.

 

Apologies:

 

I want to apologies to those fellow bloggers and friends for not answering and doing you books tags you have tagged me in the reason for it is because it didn’t pop up on my notifications which I know isn’t an excuse but I hope you forgive me and continue to tag me in any future book tags and also thank you for those who have if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t have my 182 followers.

also I did a post on bully bookworms which I feel very strong about please do click Discussion on Bulling Bookworms and read it and follow the crusade as one of our fellow book bloggers wrote because it is a serious matter a friend of mine almost stop reading because of it also if you do follow the crusade then write a post about what you think about book bullying in generally day to day reading/blogging and link it below or tag me in the post.

Tags I have created:

 

I made my first ever tag which was  I dare you Book Tag   because I made a tag for my friend Jenny to do for fun and she suggested I put it on my blog which I thought would be fun I even answered the questions once I did them lots of bloggers did my tag and friends then 4 months ago piera forde did my I dare you | book tag which I remember being completely shocked that this tag had been on youtube but then others decided to do my tag and the only problem was no one knew how did it until one of my favourite youtubers Rianna reads did the same named tag which I discussed I Dare you |Book Tag discussion  and just reading it now I can see I wasn’t to happy about it even though I did say I was but now I am completely over it and am happy my first book tag was a success.

 

I link my other tags here:

​Beauty And The Beast / Book Tag

​Blogging advice // Tag //

also let me know if you want me to reanswer them because I would also feel free to answer them and tag me I’d love to see your answers.

Booktuberathon pt3

Hey guys,

Sorry for not updating for the last two days when this is posted it will be three days the reason was because I was video talking to my friend how is in a different country she is making a book blog and I was advicing her and today I’ve been reading two books today to make up for it.

3. Read a book in one day 

I really enjoyed reading this book I started reading this at 6:00 this morning and finished it at 10:00 as you guys know my go to book is Out of the Shadows which is the first book which I rated 6.5 / 5 stars this book was just as amazing this is the story of Natalie and Gene which I loved it they are such a great couple i hated the cliff hanger but it was due to Daniels story which annoys me because they have stopped vincents story for bit i know i need to give him the benifit of the doubt even though what werewolf wars acually means makes me feel so sad but with what goes on I recommend waiting till you are 19+ plus to read.

5. Read a book completely outdoors? 



 Has you guys know I have done a review for this book click here for review I absolutely love quinn loftis books I read 28% of the book I’m just go outside to read I’ll have to tommrow because it’s really late 2:00 in the morning late.
6. Read a book you bought because of the cover?


I love j.l Weil Davis series and the covers are so beautiful and I love how she create the Divisa’s half human half demon I highly recommend checking this book I can’t wait to reread it.

7. Read seven books 


Well has you guys know this is the seventh boom I can’t wait to read.
Let me know below what you are currently reading also my next post will have good news about my friend how is creating a blog.
Happy Reading 

BookTuberAThon Book Update pt2

Hey Guys,

I want to just mention about how excited I am about the 13th doctor being a FEMALE I know that on Christmas day will be with the 1st and 12th which I am excited about but there’s never been a female doctor but the reason why I brought this up is because I  have been reading a lot of comments about this and there have been complains and lots of rude comments as in sexist comments which is very disappointing but I suppose its going against the whole people’s opinion don’t judge so I am going to stop and get on with the challenge update.

 

  1. Read a book with a face on the cover?

Screenshot_2017-07-25-22-20-36-1I was right when I rated this awesome book 6.5/5 stars I am so impatient to buy the next book because.

Screenshot_2017-07-25-14-37-47-1

I MAY SPOLIED READ AT YOUR OWN RESK I did mention that I would tell you what I thought of it but this is not a full review just an update so when we found out about Ryn I couldn’t help but think he’s such a jerk I wanted to skip the parts when he was in it which I would do because that would be me reading the book also because I would have loved him with Violet has a couple (I’ll stop there otherwise I start reviewing at it’s 3:00 in the morning) and also I have to quickly say Callad power is so cool but I would probably like violet power to track someone that sounds awesome I highly recommend reading this if you are looking for a good faerie book.

 

2. Read a hype book?

Screenshot_2017-07-24-10-30-43-1I was planning to read this book but unfortunately I couldn’t get into this book at the moment I hope when seeing this cover it would be a paranormal book but from what my friend told me and from the first three chapters it seemed like contemporary which I am not a big fan of that I am trying to get into so I am going to wait until this challenge finish to have another go at reading this book.

 

So instead I read.

Screenshot_2017-07-25-22-21-53-1This maybe I buddy read with my friend which I was able to squeeze into this challenge but we finished this book at 8:00 in the morning and we both started it about 5:00 but I had to read it early so I could spend time with my little sister on her birthday and along with my other two little brothers plus we had to arrange it so she could read the book as well because she’s in a different country.

ANYWAY GETTING OFF TOPIC.

I have read this book before I rated this 6/5 stars I love Adam and Gemma story they both like each other but they can’t be together because she isn’t allowed to have emotions towards anyone that is why her grandparents don’t show any love and affection towards her why can’t she have emotions because she is the star sound familiar a certain amazing film because I haven’t read the book stardust anyway if you are looking for a great series with a forbidden love and action packed vampires/witches type of series that this is the one for you.

 

3. Read a book in one day?

unfortunately its 3:30 and I am tired plus I stayed up all night yesterday I think I deserve a goodnight sleep so tomorrow I will be reading:

Screenshot_2017-07-05-16-42-29-1 I am so excited to read this in the morning but earlier I didn’t want to read it at 7:00 in the afternoon because it was my sisters birthday so instead at midnight I decided to do question 4.

 

4. Read a character that different from you?

I may have mistaken my chose in book but the character is different from me still and the book was.

Screenshot_2017-07-05-17-11-23-1I absolutely love Quinn lofits books so I don’t need to discus it but I will for those who maybe new to my blog I rated this book a 6.5/5 stars Peri is a lot different from me because she is first a fae second she has a her way with words and she bossy whereas me I’m a kind and quiet person which may sound surprising I know but I highly recommend it if you are looking for a fae/werewolf action pack then this is the one for you.

 

Let me know below what you are currently reading for your challenge also if you have read any of these books I would love your opinion also what did you think of the Jodie Whittaker female 13 doctor in doctor who I am dying to talk about it.                              Better go sleep since it 4:07 in the UK.

BookTuberAThon

Hey Guys,

Sorry about this late post. I am really ill and have been since Saturday after this post I’m gonna try and get some more sleep which might be difficult because I don’t normally sleep after 10:00 and it’s 12:00 in London (I just added 12:00 after finishing the whole post.)  

and then start with the challenges has you guys may know if you watch booktubers, which i have a feeling everyone does there is a book challenge to celebrate well booktubers. I know I’m not a booktuber but i wanted to do this challenge which i know I’m not the only one to do this challenge that isnt a booktuber because we are a book readers and want to celebrate it.

It starts on Monday the 24 of July and finishes on the Sunday the 30 of July. just in case you guys want to join in. Lets get on with what i am planning to read this month

 1. Read a book with a person on the cover? 

For this one I chose 

 

 I saw this book free on kindle and thought why not plus the book sounds very interesting.
 

 2. Read a hype book?

Mine will be 

I have read J.L’s Divisa series which I absolutely loved reading so when I heard people rave about this book I literally can’t wait to read this book but I differently have high expectations so please don’t fail me.

3. Finish a book in one day?



 I pretty much do that 24/7 haha sometimes two books in one day for this challenge I decided to read.

I have been really struggling to not read this book early because I have been planning to read this book for this challenge as you guys know the first book is my go to book so you guys know I’m telling the truth.
4. Read a character that different from you?

I was going to say Obsedian by Jennifer L. Armentrout bit katy is a big fan of reading and blogging so that book wasn’t the right chose haha so I found this question difficult but I managed to find.

I am planning to read one of the novellas for this book because first of the character is a boy which is completely different from me because I’m well a woman. (Before you start ageing me I’m 18 so no 30s haha.) 

5. Read a book completely outdoors? 

 I am not completely sure if I have to read a book outside or a book which is mostly based on the outside so I decided to do both.  (let me know below what this answer acually means)

This book most of the time they are outside plus I’ve been want to reread this series after reading Luna of Mine which is the eighth book in the series.

6Read a book because you bought because of the cover?

When I first got the boxset if this it was because of the covers I never read it when I first got them but I knew I wanted them plus this book will help me to get over the upset if the book White Raven does meet expectations.

 if you guys didn’t know I’m the Divisa series they are she will be doing a spin off series for LEXI in 2018 which I am very excited about when she told me on wattpad afree i read the extra parts of the book that wasnt mentionedin the book I was really glad because questions wasn’t really answered with Lexi and if memory serves the last part of the book she wasn’t metioned init only Emma and Travis. (The fangirl within me may have been jumping up and down excitement.) 

7. Read seven books 

 There’s 6 books so far if you include the questions so my 7th book will be.

Which is in my July tbr and the thrid book was finished on a cliffhanger a really shocking cliffhanger. 

If I manged to read more books I will add it in my reading update which I will be doing for this challenge so you know when I have read the books what I thought of them and also so you know I am not cheating which I never do.

The funny thing about me doing this post is I have been blowing my nose non stop so that why it’s been 4 hours to do this post plus the answer I was planning to do for each question have changed because all of these books are on my kindle.

 let me know below if you are doing this challenge also feel free to link your post below and I’ll definitely check it out I’m curious to know what you guys are reading.
Happy Reading 

​THE READER CONFESSION TAG

Hey guys 

I am sorry I haven’t been blogging much but its been really busy with work and the work I had to do at home but I  am trying to blog more I am determined to do this.

I saw this tag around and thought I’d have a go at the questions so here goes.

1. Have you ever damaged a book?

OK I’ll admit I have when I use to put my book secondary school bag and my book use to get damaged.

2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?

Never I respect other people’s books as if they were my own and has I would want them to treat mine.


3. How long does it take you to read a book?  

Depends on if I am working or short and long. If it’s long it might take a week or two if it’s short maybe 2/3 days since work my reading not been as great as I normally do.

4. Books that you haven’t finished?

(Dedicated to my brother how loves spiderman haha)

We could be here for a week I’ll list some of them.
Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) 

I do like this book I am halfway through but I just want to buy the whole series before carrying on with the series before you ask I ship Ron Weasley.

The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner #2) By James Dasher 

The reason why I haven’t read thesecond one is because I am not happy with a certain person I think you all know and when my friend told me they betray the gang I was so mad at them because they was my favourite in the first book apart from Minho is just so no way to describe how amazing he is.

Beautiful Redemption (Beautiful Creatures #4) By Kami Garcia 

 I haven’t read this fully because I wasn’t sure what was going on it was confusing and I was disappointed with what was happening but I am going to reread it because I want to love this book because I love the Caster Chronicles but I do think that it should have ended at chaos then start with dangerous creatures with him alive and then did a chaper explain how he came back alive or something.

The Unexpected Everything By Morgan Matson 

I can barely see this picture haha the reason why I haven’t finished it was because at the time I had a reading slump but I will be definitely be reading this book.


5 . Hyped/popular books you didn’t like only thought were OK?  

I always promised I’ll be honest so I’m going to tell you guys but has I always say it’s my opinion I feel really sad that I can’t love every book in the world.
Also the book I say in the series doesn’t mean the whole series just the book that i say in the series.
Allegiant (Divergent #3) By Veronica Roth

This book was slow paced people were always fighting and someone died that we didn’t agree with I haven’t read this series for two years but I am going to reread it because I absolutely loved the first two books and the novella hopefully in time I will love this book.

Maximum Ride Forever (Maximum Ride #9) By James Patterson 

 I chose this book because I was really disappointed with how James Patterson decied to end this book I didn’t expect it to end like this I would have to say it should have ended at book three but I do like the rest up to nevermore but that’s a conversation for another time.
Mockingjay (The Hunger games #3) By Suzanne Collins 

Wow that picture is huge anyway this one I chose because it was not the best book in the series I love the beginning and the fighting scenes but that was pretty much it oh and peeta scenes I wasn’t happy with what happened to him and Prim but I am trying to deal with it because Suzanne done it for a reason.


– Looking for Alaska By Jhon Green

 

Has most of you may know I am nota big fan of looking for Alaska I am sorry to say this to fans of this certain book but I am planning to reread this one because at the time of reading it I was in secondary maybe because I was at that age maybe click here for the review.


6. Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading? 



Haha good question it probably have to be between two books Fangirl and Carry On By Rainbow Rowell lots of people I know hate this books and I don’t tell them I read it because they start trying to convince me how rubbish these books are.

7. How many books do you own? 

101 only doing a quick count I probably missing some books.

8. Are you a fast or slow reader? 



Fast loads are people are surprised how quick before someone finished a page I have finished both pages.

9. Do you like to buddy read?



Unfortunately I haven’t had a buddy to read if you guys would like to buddy read with me let me know below. 😊 But I have a read along group on goodreads I haven’t been using it but I am going to start.

10. Do you read better in your head or out loud? 

I prefer to read in my head but I sometimes I read out loud when my friends are around.

11. If you were only allowed to own ONE book, what would it be and why?



I can’t answer that question I love more one book it’s like asking me to  chose my favourite between my family members.

I chose you to do this tag all of you guys please link your answers for this tag below I’m curious to see all of your answers.

​The unpopular opinions Book Tag 

1.A popular book or series that you didn’t like?

Looking for Alaska by jhon green I don’t really like this book I was waiting for that omg I love this book but it was about a guy who was obsset with a girl who wasn’t interested until she was drunk I am planning to reread this book and hopefully love it.

2.A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate but you love.

The witches kiss by Katherine and Elizabeth corra when I talk about this amazing book I always get people saying that the cover is lying about how the book and blurb it doesn’t tell you the boy is cursed to cut hearts they thought it would be a different type of curse but its really good. 

3.A love triangle where  the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with OR an OTP that you don’t like?

Endlessly (paranormally #3) by Kiersten White if you guys know me well I wanted Evie to end up with Rein they were absolutely perfect I was so excited to see her go with him through the gate and when she went with the shapeshifting guy I just was annoyed that they had to end it she belong with Rein.

4. A popular book genre you hardly reach for?

Scince fiction I know you guys are probably disappointed but I just can’t get into the genre I’m hoping to read more especially after reading lux series.

5.A popular or beloved character you don’t like?

 it has to be Simon Lewis he an ok character but he’s also really annoying he needs to listen when he is told what to do and know when he’s bestfriends like someone else and not take advantage of the fact she’s heartbroken and wants to move on quick.

6. A popular author that you can’t get into?

Jenny Han I can never get past the first chapter of just one day  I’m hoping to read more pages or try a different book if you know what book I can start of hers please let me know below  I really want to get into her books she sounds like an amazing author.

7.A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing (examples: lost princess, corrupt ruler, love triangles)

Instant love I hate when the two people who know each other for a week act like they have been together for years and couldn’t imagine there lives without each other.

8.A popular series that you have no interest in reading?

I would have to say if I stay by Gayle Forman I just don’t think I would like it after seeing a clip of the film maybe in the future that will change but for the moment it’s not but I am planning to read her other books.

9.The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or TV show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

I prefer watching breaking dawn than reading it because in the film there is fighting whereas in the book you don’t plus you get to know how Alice sees her visions and in the book she doesn’t discribe what she sees. 
Let me know below what you thought of my answers and also let me know what you’re answers would be I’m very curious.
