Back to Books

3 comments

Although I absolutely adore books with all my heart, the majority of this year I have been in a reading slump, and I don't particularly know why, I think just university got in the way, but anyway , at the start of this month I finally started seeing some books I really wanted to read, and in the space of two weeks I had accumulated a fair few books and I thought I would share them with you.



 My Rockstar Boyfriend - Eleanor Wood
 I picked this up whilst I was in Asda and it was only like £4 so it was really cheap, which was amazing!The story focuses on a girl who writes a blog who one day receives a comment by a famous singer , and the story follows her as she continues to figure what to do, with friends, family and of course, a secret rockstar boyfriend. I enjoyed this when I read it, I really like it when there are bloggers in books because it opens up our little world and to see it play out in book form is great, the characters are great the plot is easy and fun to read, it great for someone who wants a fun read with blogging and music throughout.



Between the Lines - Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
This book has easily become one of my favourite books of all time, and that is a very hard thing to do with me, it is such an amazing story that I couldn't help but love it. It follows Delilah as she reads a fairytale book over and over again about Prince Oliver and his epic adventures until one day he asks her for her help to get him out of the book. I fell in love this book the moment I started reading it, I adore fairytales and this could not be more perfect, it is definitely one of my favourite books ever. I truly recommend this book to anyone who loves fairytales and Disney.



Im sure everyone knows Giovanna Fletcher, and her amazing books, well they have been on my to buy list for a very long time, and I finally bought one! Dream a little Dream is about a woman who starts dreaming about a handsome stranger, but suddenly turns out he's real. This was enough to reel me in to buy it as I want really want to read her books and this book seemed as good a place as any to start.



This book came because of a recommendation by the booktuber Sasha Alsberg, she constantly mentions it and it is set in Scotland so I thought why not? It follows two girls who go to Scotland for the summer and they discover a magical kingdom called Doon filled with magic and handsome Scottish Princes.Oh my goodness it is so good! The story is really interesting, the characters are likable and infuriating at the same time which is great, and I know I need to buy the next book in the series 



Underworld is the sequel to Abandon by Meg Cabot, it follows a girl named Pierce and her bizarre "relationship" with John Hayden. This series is based on the Persephone myth from Greek Mythology, and I adore Greek mythology so I couldn't not read this and when I saw the sequel on sale for £1 I HAD to buy it, so if you also like Greek Mythology I definitely recommend this.


Now this final book is the sequel to Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha Van Leer, now simply by my description of the first book, see above, it is obvious I love this book,its continues Delilah and Prince Oliver's story, its perfect and I flew through it, I couldn't put it down I had to know what happened next, it has everything you got in the first book and more, as I said before if you love fairytale and Disney styled stories these books are perfect for you.

Well those are all the books that I bought in the past few weeks to get me back into reading and they have certainly done the job, I read three book in two days so I am starting to get back to my books, which I am loving.

Life Lately

3 comments

It have been a while since I last blogged, simply because I didn't know what to say or what to talk about, but you know what, I feel like talking now, and its been a while since I have let you all know what is going on with me lately, so I guess this is a little update post. Okay here we go ...

Firstly I have finished my second year University, and being completely honest I didn't even think it would go by so fast, it seriously feels like a month ago I started second year, so getting my head around that is very strange. Not only have I finished second year but I also got my grades back, and I couldn't be more happy with my results, I got a bunch of 2:1 's and a few high 2:2 and honestly I couldn't be happier as I started the year not in the best place and my grades weren't the best and I even failed a module of which I have to re-do now but I don't mind, but seeing my other grades has made it worth it. 

Secondly is... I got a job! Yeah I finally got a job after what seems like forever searching, I have been working for a little over a month I think now, and I am getting the hang of it now so I don't feel like a complete newbie at my job which I like, I have even got to know quite a few of the people I work with which is nice, as I don't feel alone whilst I'm there which i am so thankful for, my co-workers are so nice and I am so happy I get to work with them.

Next is that my trip to London is coming soon and I cannot wait! It is a little over two weeks till I go but I am in the middle of getting everything ready for the trip, I have been before for the past few years, but this year me and my family are going for a little longer so we will be able to see more of London, hopefully planning to do a lot of sight-seeing, maybe see a show and of course a lot of shopping, which will include a trip to the brand new Lush shop in Oxford street! I cannot tell you how excited I am to go and see the new products, and don't worry I will be blogging about the trip as I will be blogging every single day in August! So look forward to that, hopefully I can stick to it like I did with Blogmas, I am looking forward to it and I hope you will all enjoy it!

And Lastly I got a camera! A proper blogging camera! I was getting so annoyed at my Iphone not taking great pictures so I went looking for some cameras and my sister-in-law was selling her old one so now I have a camera and I so happy with it, I love it, it is a Nikon D3200. I adore it it takes amazing photos and I am so in love it and am so glad I can take good photos for my blog instead of meh ones I took on my Iphone, anyway my camera will be coming with me most places now including my London trip so expect a lot better photos soon on this blog, thanks to my new camera !      

I think that is about everything that is going on with me lately, please let me know what is going on with you.
