I am so emotional over Me Before You (My Emotional Hangover)

Image
So recently I finished reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I had no interest in this book when I first heard about it. I thought that the book wouldn't be interesting for me, until I saw the movie trailer starring Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke. I love Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones, very much looking forward to the tv series coming back. And I had seen Sam Claflin in Love Rosie and Snow White and the Huntsman, and I was looking forward to watching the film.



Now after reading the book, I am not sure if I want to see the movie. It's not because I think the movie won't live up to the book, I feel that the movie will be great with a great cast that is part of it. But I know that I will walk out of that movie and cry my fucking eyeballs out and will continue to cry for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I hate reading books that have sad endings because you are so invested with this character and you grow to love them and wished that you were with them, only for the author to s…

Finished Reading (No 12)

Hey everyone

I have been organising my wrap up posts for a while now and I had decided to change on how I do my monthly wrap ups. The reason being for this change is because I feel the monthly wrap ups too repetitive and I don't want to write a blog post on two books that I had read in the month.

So every two months I will be posting my wrap ups, which will consist of all the books that I have read in the last two months and possibly a few book reviews in between.

Reading wise started off quite well in January and in February, it went down hill. So here are the books that I have read in the last three months.

So enjoy!

Book Review: The Book Of Lost Things by John Connolly

Image
High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year old David mourns the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is alone, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in the myths and the fairytales so beloved of his dead mother he finds that the real world and the fantasy world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words:" Welcome, your majesty. All hail the new king."
And as war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolves and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious. legendary book...

Book Haul (No. 10)

Image
Smaller than the previous book haul, very contained(ish)

Ok I have to make a confession. Shortly after ordering my Austen and Bronte sisters books Collection. I ended up getting a different book collection, I got myself the Vintage Classics Jane Austen collection, mostly due to the lovely covers but also due to the fact that the other editions font size is really small and it strained my eyes from reading, and I really like the covers they are beautifully designed and I have already stated to read one of them right now.
So onto the rest of the book haul

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (Also this edition is special as it is signed by Rainbow Rowell herself)

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Prudence (The Custard Protocol) by Gail Carriger

The Time Machine The Invisible Man by H.G.Wells

Louise Rennison - My Favourite Author

So I went onto Twitter and discovered about the death of Louise Rennison.
Louise Rennison was one of my favourite Authors and one of the first Authors that made me enjoy reading. 
I have read the entire series of The Confession of Georgia Nicolson and I consider this series to still be my current favourite. I enjoyed the wacky life of Georgia and I've read this book series countless of times in one sitting. 
She is and always will be one of the many talented Authors that I will forever treasure in my heart. 
I just wanted to write this post because she was an important author while growing up and will continue when I give my own children her books. 
See you soon xx
