Book Update 

I know that around this time everyone are experiencing horror or Halloween themed books but I just want to read classics and Ya books at the moment I don’t celebrate Halloween because of my parents don’t believe in it but I am planning to start but next year.

 My classical reads:

I have been told I’m very brave reading this book but has a Catholic it’s very interesting to see different points of view when it comes to religions but I do love these poetry about Heavenly and Hell, God and Lucifer.

I don’t know what it’s about but my mum told me to read this book so I’m listening to her when she recommend books they are always amazing.

I’veheard lots about this book and want to see if its has good as they say it is.

Can’t wait to read this just can’t wait.
 Non-fiction


This is about Miranda hart need I say more if I do her TV Show Miranda was a favourite of mine and wish there was more.

Ya reads:


This book is based after the wizard of Oz and is about a girl who has to relive Dorothys steps and hopefully save her.

Kinda reminds me of Once Upon a Time can’t wait to see what this book holds.

Time travel books – I decided to read more time travel books after reading The Ruby Red Series.

Elle Strauss has been recommended a lot also the author did ask me to read her book and I said I would review it once I’ve read it.

The cover made me want to read this.

Hopefully you enjoy my posts and thank you for understanding why I decided against Horror and Halloween let me know below if you have read any of these books I metioned also you’re opinion.

Book to Film Adaptations Rating 

Hey Guys,

Sorry for not updating lately I but last week was my first week of me starting my new job and I don’t have set days on when I work so I may not be blogging every day like I did before.

I have recently watched:

I absolutely adore it the actor who plays Emma is a favourite of mine you may know Gwyneth Paltrow from (IronMan, Glee, Shallow Hal.) She was the best Emma out of all the movie adapations of this book by Jane Austen and Mr knightly Aww he’s honest even if it hurts your feelings a great friend and fictional boyfriend material over all this was a 6.5/5 stars and I can’t wait to read the book.

My mum already had this movie and let me borrow it there are two versions but Billie Piper was not only amazing has Rose Tyler in Doctor who but was wonderful has Fanny Price I felt so sad for Fanny but I loved the ending alot Edmund was a great character but he wasn’t not Mr Darcy or Mr knightly it was interesting to have a film about a religious guy character I did think he’s sudden interested in Fanny did seem like insta love which I normally dislike but I did love when he was running down the hall wit her and grabbing her arm when she went to walk off overall I rated this a 5.5/5 stars.

I am planning to rate the second book adaptation of Mansfield Park also I may do a movies review for the movies I just Rated I can’t remember what really happened I am hoping to post my September Wrap up and October TBR which is the month of my birthday if you have any book recomendations then please do let me know in the comments below.

The Secret Series 1-2 books By Jessica Soresen

Hey Guys,

I am currently since Monday been doing a Gilmore Girls Marathon and drinking lots of coffee I am currently on season 2 episode 7 and on my sixth cup of coffee I know too much caffeine which is bad for my migraines but that won’t stop me this post is my book update, book reviews and book recommendations wow I know.

I have only read two books which I have reread this month I absolutely love Ella and Micha romance they adore each other it’s a kind of romance every women dreams of I rated them 6.5/5 stars if you haven’t read this NA (New Adult book) then I highly recommend it but I don’t if you are younger than 18+ plus I don’t want to get blamed for it.

This is is about Ella and Micha they have been friends since they were 8 and started it like each other when they were 14/15 years old and made an oath that they would never leave Star Grove and create a life for themselves until they hit 16/17 and Ella ran away after standing on a bridge nearly about to jump until Micha stops her and they kiss and Ella leaves Star Grove and goes to Vegas and leaves her Rule breaker and Fiery attitude behind her and becomes someone who follows the rules until but then it hits the summer holiday and has no where to go but home.                                                                       Ella has fears that as soon as she goes home that everything she has worked to bury will surface when especially with Micha right next door making her remember the best parts of her past,

thats all I am going to say The blurb for the first book is better but I am going into more detail so you can see why I love this book The Secret of Ella And Micha blurb here and The Forever Ella and Micha blurb here I have also done a review for the second book I am planning to review the book at some point Review: The forever or Ella and Micha book 2: By Jessica Sorensen 

I am planning to read next:

I decided to pause the other books I have been reading because this is going to surprise you Jeanie (which is Jen) has given me a reading slump so I went to my go to book that gets me out of my reading slump which is this book series before you ask I will be continue reading the other books as soon as I have finish the series which in my case will be soon.

 

So this is the order of what book I am going to read them I know it looks like lots of books and surprising on how many books based on four characters but if it like the first two books then I am excited.

Let me know below if you want me to make more of these posts and also what do you think of Jessica Sorensen books and what are you currently reading I am curious.

BOOK UPDATE AND RANT

Hey Guys,

For those who have me on Goodreads I am sorry for the bloody word I was very mad with Jen I was enjoying a nice read Marked By P.C. Cast which I started reading after talking to Tyr Carter who blog is amazing so please do check out and follow this amazing blog then all of a sudden I went on my blog to see books added to my currently reading I really regret letting Jen have access my Goodreads and making me mess up my TBR but I’m letting it slide this time because I broke my read-a-long anyway enough with my rant and getting on to my reading update.

So I am currently reading?

 

Jenny may have won on me reading Lady Susan and Romancing the Duke which I am not reading until I have Finished Marked because I am really enjoying the book and then I am going to read Lady Susan due it being 80 pages I wouldn’t recommend reading Romancing the Duke if you are younger than 18+ since it’s NA (New Adult).

 

What I am planning to read after?

I want to read Jane Austen books after reading Pride and Prejudice so Jen recommend after giving me a pile of her books to read so I am going to read Persuasion and Lady Susan the only book I own are A Court Of wings And Ruin I may have took Jen’s Marked of her self and said she owed me but she let me keep it since she wasn’t a big fan.

Sorry about the Rant was very mad at Jen for making me brake my TBR again I am currently answering some of my Q and As Thanks for giving me books and non book questions like embarrassing questions so thanks haha not personal personal questions please because I won’t answer them which I think I have mentioned if not then sorry I didn’t.

Let me know below if you have any questions about me and I’ll added it to my 60/70 questions I currently have OMG REALLY yep also what are you currently reading I am very curious also I added a NA to this book update because there was only one book.

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.

Book update 

Hey Guys, 

Finally it’s raining in London yesterday it was so hot I hate summer worst weather ever also I know my birthday coming up when the it’s rains one day I wish it could snow on October for my birthday can’t believe I’m 19 this year.                                   I know I need to do my September Tbr but I just want to do what I am currently reading because I need to talk about them has you guys know I did my August Wrap up early because I want to start on my colour cover read-a-thon Jen is coming to London today so we can buddy read in the same country also I have but Classics into this read-a-thon because I want to read more of them.

So the books I am currently reading is.

I am currently listening to the audiobook on youtube for this amazing book just got to chapter 3/4 and already know I will be rating this 6.5/5 stars.

I watch the movie before reading the because I did that with the last song by Nicholas Sparks and I have a feeling I will love his works.
 Pretty much all the books I have put on this list I have already watch the films and show for Love Rosie has to be my absolutely favourite Movie unfortunately the book is not turning out to be better there’s too much emails on the first three chapters I have read I really hope it has a actually conversation and calls etc. than emails it’s was ok for the first two chapters it was quite funny somethings that have happened.

 Yesterday I watch the movie was really surprised that my favourite actors where the main characters in the movie I hope they do more movies together anyway I decided has green on the cover I am going to pick it up.
What I am planning to read next.

Has you guys know I absolutely love the tv show and movie of the three musketeers so when I saw there was a book I knew I had to pick it up.

My only excuse is Jenny blame her for the reason I stopped on page 110 she told me to stop reading and wait for her to finish the second book which thank goodness she has because I would have read it without her this month and she knows I would.

So that’s what my reading is going to be so far I would have done my TBR but unfortunately I don’t have my notebook which has the books I am reading this month written in it.

Let me know below what you thoughts of these books are, what you are planning on reading this month also what did you think about these movie/ tv show adaption I am curious.

Book update & book discussion

Hey Guys,

 

I just noticed that my favourite book blogger that I follow her blog is A Dreamer’s library Emma did an interesting post about BBC Pride and Prejudice Adaptations which I highly recommend checking out if you are a pride and prejudice fan or you are interested in finding out about the films.

So the reason I put book discussion is because I am very annoyed I can’t find the cover of a book I actually want and need to talk about it before I go into depth there’s an author that I like but I don’t talk about her works that I read because people assume old people read her works and aren’t happy with the stuff she writes about which is understandable but not all her are like that the authors name is Catherine Cookson I absolutely adore and I know I say that a lot but I actually mean that about her book and it is.

 

Screenshot_2017-08-04-14-50-48-1I am currently rereading this book and I am on page 141 this was my mothers book pretty much this and Rosie of the River and this are hers but she doesn’t read books anymore and gave me them I am planning to do a review I don’t recommend reading her books if you are a YA reader this is and all her books are NA (New Adult) which is 18+ this is the second book to the book my discussion/rant is about but all I have to say is I rated this a 6.5/5 stars when I was first read this and I still stick with that rating.

As you can see with the cover above is the cover I own so I was looking for this cover for the first book Kate Hannigan but instead all I keep seeing today was.

Screenshot_2017-08-04-15-11-12-1Which was really annoying me because I  didn’t look like this cover and I wanted same type of cover  I own and I suppose it a pet peeve of mine I like to have my covers matching and I pretty much went on every book site until I saw the exact cover I wanted on ebay but unfortunately they couldn’t guaranty there was no food stain or drink on the pages so I couldn’t buy it so I stop looking and gave it a break because I wasn’t going to find it and felt like I would have to get this cover.

When I went back online after watching a few episodes of the 4 season of the originals which has recently been put on Netflix and I went back on amazon and typed The Maltese Angel by Catherine Cookson because I was looking for another book to buy of hers then I saw the cover.

Screenshot_2017-08-04-13-03-52-1It wasn’t the exact cover but it was a cover that I liked and it has two books in one which I can’t wait to read so I spent about three/four hours looking for a cover when all that time I could have gotten this cover anyway you can tell how has my friend says ‘book cover freak’ I don’t know if anyone has the same problem how knows but I just need to talk about how annoying it was.

 

I am planning to do a post of authors books I am planning to buy and hopefully a review for Kate Hannigan’s girl and The Rosie of the river and hopefully stick with my TBR  I have read Out of the shadows by Bethany Shaw already let me know in the comments below if you have read any of Catherine Cookson, any classics you recommend and also what you think of Pride and Prejudice the movies/book.

 

Happy Reading

I am meant to be waking up early to talk to my friend but I can’t sleep big mistake drinking coffee at midnight played call of duty for an hour to try and full asleep but I was to wired and nearly reaching level 50 I know eye roll then decided to do my TBR since I forgot to do it earlier also if you have any advice on how to fall asleep then please let me know in the comments below.

Also I want to thank you guys for liking my blog due to you guys liking my posts I recently received from WordPress:

Screenshot_2017-07-31-21-17-32-1So thank you 🙂

So I have 11 books on my currently reading pile and 225 books to read the reason why I am not reading the 11 books yet is because I have to read other books I rather promised to review and haven’t gotten round to reading yet or authors have ask me to read there books and I have been trying to get round to but just want to reread my favourites so I am going to try reading books I haven’t read and attempt to review them might not to be able but enough talking more doing my TBR.

YA Reads:

 

 

Screenshot_2017-08-01-01-19-58-1I was contacted by Elle Strauss on my goodreads if I anted a free e-book which was this one since I like the ruby red series unfortunately I already had this in my kindle so I offered to review this book on my goodreads and blog,

A great blogger and friend Marrill Collins  was reading both P.S I Like You and Raven boys and I was also recommended to read these by Marrill which I also promised to review I highly recommend check out her amazing blog if you like YA, Fantasy and contemporary.

I also chose to read Ignite because I saw the spin-off series frost and I knew I had to read this series because it sounds so interesting.

I have been meaning to read shadows since 10th July 2016 the reason why I know the exact date is because I put it on my Instagram the same day I knew I was planning to read it I tried reading it the next day but I stopped because there was other books I wanted to read.

Katherine and Elizabeth Corr they are absolute amazing and I am going to read this second book now because …. THERE IS A THRID BOOK WOW I know right exciting I can’t wait I am inlove with this series.

 

NA Reads:

 

I was asked if I could separate my YA and NA so that people knew what I am recommending plus some people can skip it if they dislike this genre which is understandable so I have just so you guys know some new adult are kind of like a court of wings and fury and they can be a lot more descriptive its about finding the right book to get you into the series.

 

Out of the shadows is a guilty pleasure and so is the second book which I maybe rereading also I may reread the Dive Stage Series because lots of people are talking about the series with me and I may be impatient to read it I also chose Thoughtless because its rock star book and thanks to Dive Stage Series as gotten me into rock star books.

I was recommended No regrets by a friend on my Instagram and the other book Husband Fur Hire I saw qwendowlyn reading methods an amazing booktuber was reading this because it had ironic title so I decided to join in on it because its a great idea

 

Anyway its 3:00 in the morning and i am still wide awake and now I am going to try playing games like Phil from Dan And Phil did fingers crossed I can go asleep so let me know below what books are you excited to read for August also if you have read any of these books let me know in the comments below what you think.

 

Happy Reading
