Current Reads

Without Merit

I’m not far into this one but I’m hoping it’s gonna be another great read for me. Colleen Hoover is a great story teller for sure.

The Happy Prince & Other Stories

Still got this on the backburner, I’ll eventually get through all the short stories xD

 

Read This Week

Caraval (Caraval, #1)

Right so I may have consumed the rest of this book one night and I have to say, I do understand why it got so hyped. The hype wasn’t wrong, the actual story, plot and everything was just amazeballs (look at me creating words xD) I’m also glad I waited to read this book, warning if you haven’t read this book yet you should. Go, go read it. A review and discussion will be coming…but not until June as I’m creating a backlog of reviews 🙂

Grave Memory

*throws party for self* OMG I have finally finished this book! I’m also now super sad cause my library doesn’t have the other three books in the series, which is a pain. Still I’ll have a review up someone in June 🙂

Life Updates

Eeek ok so erm I figured out my schedule for May.  Basically no posts on Weds and Sat now. I’m also gonna be working on doing my best to catch up on my reading, cause well I’m still behind schedule. I just don’t prioritise reading that’s my problem, I pick writing over reading and it’s so frustrating. Since I’ve still not managed to actually start outlining an original book yet. I miss it…but I think a break from it has done me good.

Out of curiosity would anyone be interested in reading about my writing journey so far? In short I’ve been writing for 6 years, I began at 11 and haven’t stopped since haha. But I write stories, poems and lyrics so if you’re interested I’ll definitely make sure to add that as a Thursday Talks post.

As for the rest of my life, I finished Caraval and Grave Memory which I’m super proud of. I’m determined to get through these silly books, even if my brain is making me want to write. Anyhoo, college has been going great interestingly one of our projects involves building a website and the other one is photography. I swear my brain fried when we learning about the exposure triangle *melts* aperture, ISO and shutter speed is what goes on the triangle as for the relationships don’t even go there. I’ve already forgotten them haha.

  1. Thank you again for adding me into the helpful links! 😁 and I’ve been meaning to read Caraval for ages but haven’t gotten round to it in case I was disappointed from the hype! But I’ll try and pick it up soon!

  3. I loved Caraval and can’t wait for the next book. I’ll be attending the Legendary book signing and I’m excited to meet her. I hope you have a great week!

  4. Yay, I’m so glad you loved Caraval!! I’ll look for your review in June 🙂 I’ve heard a lot of good things about Colleen Hoover but have never read one of her books. Is there one you’d recommend starting with?

    Hope you have a wonderful week, Clo 🙂 And thank you for sharing my post! ♥

    • No worries and I’m so glad I enjoyed it too!

      Well I’d personally say It Ends With Us but that one will destroy you in the best possible way, it’s also dealing with abusive relationships sooooo I have review for that book though.

      I’d suggest Ugly Love first, it’s not as heavy as It Ends With Us and you should fly through it. Then I’d highly recommend you read It Ends With Us!

      Hope you have an amazing week too JJ! ❤

  6. I’ve heard good things about Colleen Hoover. And Caraval *sigh* I keep saying I want to read it and I never seem to. But ooh a discussion – I love in depth discussions of books, even spoilery ones, cause you can dig deep and really discuss it. Now I want to read that book even more lol.

    I hope you do share some of your writing stuff, it’s always nice to see what other bloggers do and think since I think a lot of us dabble in writing or enjoy it. Have a great week!

    • Colleen Hoover is amazing. Love her books! You should read Caraval, the plot’s great. Ah discussions are great when you have a lot to discuss about the book, it’s usually contemporaries that I don’t discuss cause there’s not much to discuss

      Hmmm well I think I’ll probably do a Thursday Talks on how I got into writing and maybe include excerpts of some of my original stuff.

      Hope you have a great week too!

  7. I’m so glad you liked Caraval! I loooved it so much too! I wasn’t the biggest fan of Scarlett but the world was incredible and I’m sooo excited for Legendary. *flails* Also good luck with all the college things and I totally think you should blog about your writing. 😉 it’s always super fun to see how other writers’ journeys progress!!

    • Yeah wasn’t her biggest fan either tbh but totally agree, I loved the world and I will definitely read Legendary at some point.

      Ah thanks, eeek I’ll will probably do a Thursday Talks about how I began writing and all then when I get my ass into gear I’ll do posts on my writing progress xD which may super slow depending on my procrastination levels haha
