Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are most looking forward to? 

My answer: Oh, I have no idea, there are a few... I'm really looking forward to Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, that looks awesome, and I can't wait to return to the world of Rose and Dimitri, even though they probably won't be in it much, if at all :( 

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee from Parajunkee's View. 




Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

My answer: Oh my word, this question is HARD! I would take:

Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (all three books)
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (all three books)
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I think maybe that is what I would take. I have no idea though, I hope never to be in that situation! :L 

TGIF is hosted by Ginger from GReads!


Stand Alone vs. Series: What's your stance? 

My answer: I love series. I love how when I finish one book in a series, I know that the story will be continued in another book, and that I will get to return to the world and the characters that the author has written. Although, sometimes with series, such as the House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast, if they are long they can drag on a bit, and sometimes when reading you get the feeling that they are not written for the readers anymore, they are written for the money. They are still good, but not as good as they once were. I do enjoy standalones though, I like that once I've read one, I don't have to wait at a cliffhanger, or wait for another book, I can just finish it, and be happy with it :)

  1. It would be a horrible situation! Not only with the dystopian theme, but really 10 books?! Doesn't anyone understand us bibliophiles?

  7. I like these 2 questions together... I haven't heard of Bloodlines, but based on the books you would take into the shelter (and the fact I love them) I may have to look into it!

    If you get a chance, hop by my blog- maybe even enter the giveaway! Hunger Games, Matched, City of Ember, and Saving Rachel are up for grabs!

  8. I cheated. I didn't count series as separate books so I'm sure I actually had over 20 books.

REVIEW: A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood

Hello all! Hope you're all enjoying the summer! I'm currently on holiday in a huge castle in the South of France and enjoying relaxing, playing games, and of course reading a lot!  Today's post is a review of a dreamy summer romance that's perfect for your holiday TBRs! Title:  A Sky Painted Gold Author:  Laura Wood Series:   n/a Pages:   356 Publisher:  Scholastic Date of Publication:  5th July, 2018 Source:  Publisher for review* Synopsis from Goodreads: Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive for the summer - a handsome, dashing brother and sister - Lou is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktail parties and glamour beyond her wildest dreams. But, as she grows closer to the Cardews, is she abandoning her own ambitions... And is there something darker lurking at the

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!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author 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 t
