Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Books Read Since the Blogging Started

Hey! I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday for yonks so I thought I'd do one today, seeing as I have a lot of reviews coming up and I don't want to bore you with just reviews. So, here's today's topic:


Top Ten Favourite Books You've Read During the Lifespan Of Your Blog 

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Never would I EVER have gone anywhere near a book that had the words 'French kiss' in the title had I not become a blogger. If I hadn't read all the glowing reviews from other bloggers I wouldn't have read it, and because I liked it so much it quickly became one of my favourites when I read it last year.

The Fault in Our Stars2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: This book is incredible. Seriously. I cried like a baby, and it's so beautiful and powerful and oh my goodness if you haven't read it, you really must. 

3. The Demon Trappers Series by Jana Oliver:  I adore this series! It's fast-paced, exciting, and so so readable :D Definitely one of my most favourite series ever and I can't wait to read everything else that Jana Oliver writes for teens. 
My reviews: Forsaken | Forbidden | Forgiven | Foretold

4. Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth: These books, I'm sure, probably appears on lots of people's lists. They're just so gripping and exciting and so, so good! Definite must reads for all fans of young adult fiction. 

5. The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa: The story-telling and world building in these books is amazing. These have been one of my favourite series for a very long time, and I'm sure they will be for a long time coming. 

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)6. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson: Creepy, gripping, and set in a London boarding school. What's not to love? This book is one of my favourites EVER, and you simply MUST read it. You must. 

7. Paranormalcy Series by Kiersten White: Again, another series you simply must read. It's snarky, sarcastic, and there's a sparkly pink taser involved. If that's not enough to tempt you, I don't know what is ;P  My reviews: Paranormalcy | Supernaturally | Endlessly

8. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly: I've included this because it's the best historical I have ever read. It's quite long but I read it extremely quickly - it's so readable and exciting and so different from everything I've ever read. If you're a historical geek, read it! And if you're not, read it anyway! 

9. Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles: I never thought I'd enjoy these. Never. But on insistence from other bloggers I picked up the first one and read it in a day. All three books are just feel-good, super hot romances, and they're so good for a day's reading. Definitely recommend! 

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour10. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson: This is my most recent favourite. I read it a couple of days ago, and ever since then it's been on my mind. The road-trip of a lifetime, awesome food, and good music - there's nothing not to like about this. Read it. You need to. My review will be up soon, I hope!

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting! Also, some of my reviews are a bit crappy and short because I wrote them back when I first started blogging... But the more recent ones, I like to think, are much better :)

  1. Great to see Amy and Roger there! Your first two are at the top of my TBR list, both look great.

  2. Every time I see Anna and the French Kiss I want to hide. I still haven't read (but definitely will) and really feel like I'm the last one. But the reason you give is why I love blogging so much! I would never have read Pushing the Limits and it's my favorite book now!

  5. Yay, you're the first person I've seen with a few books in common between our lists! Anna and the French Kiss and Amy and Roger's Epic Detour are two of my favourite books EVER. Not enough people have read Amy and Roger, but I tell everyone who will listen lol. I also love Paranormalcy, The Name of the Star, and The Iron King (the only one of the Iron Fey I've read so far). Awesome list!

    Love your blog (the header is amazing)...new follower. :-)

  7. A lot of the books you've listed I still haven't read yet. I need to get to Anna and the French Kiss and The Fault in our Stars very badly since I've heard an endless amount of good things about them.

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising... 



Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files
Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Rock the Boat
Series completion date: 13th March, 2018

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
