We all know autumn is a pretty fab time for YA book releases, so much so that a lot of us will be either A) totally broke right now or B) slightly overwhelmed with which books to pick up first. Unfortunately, I can’t help with option A. (Believe me, I would if I could but I’m in the same boat, feeling your pain right now. *cries into empty purse*) Luckily however, I can somewhat help with option B. Hence today’s quiz, making the hard decision for you. All you need to do is pick your favourite thing about autumn, whether that be snuggly movie night in, or breathing in the autumnal air, you’ll get a 2017 September-November release recommended to you.
(Equally, you could just go through all eight options and once again overwhelm yourself with great sounding books once again…)
There’s no denying, we all love YA characters. We want to be them, befriend them, date them, be adopted by them etc, etc. But now’s your chance to get rid of those annoying few, or be totally tortured by having to choose between your favourites and see whether your character opinions match those of others…
So, which beloved fictional characters are you going to get rid of? (sorry… kinda.)Read More
I have this odd vendetta against spring as a season, I’m not sure quite sure what it is exactly (<- this is entirely untrue. I 100% know why but whenever I’ve explain it to people, for some reason, they seem to think it’s more than bizarre. So in an attempt to keep whatever reputation I may have here, I’m just going to swiftly brush past that explanation…) But, if there’s one thing I do love above almost all things, it’s puppies. Coincidently enough, I also love books *shock horror*… Therefore combining the two, whilst also giving spring a little attention, seemed fair enough. So today I’m recommending some new releases coming this spring that I think sound fabulous, through the power of puppies. Enjoy! Read More
In celebration of the release of the gorgeous new MinaLima illustrated edition of Beauty and the Beast by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, which I was very kindly sent from HarperCollins and being the Disney fiend I am, I couldn’t not create a blog post inspired by this books beauty (pun unintended but very much appreciated!) So, as well as a few photos to give you a sneak peak at the stunning illustrations and interactive elements of this book, I have, of course, created a quiz. So, for the people out there, who like me, can’t resist a bookish/disney themed personality quiz, this one’s for you…
Are you more Beauty or Beast? Lumière or Cogsworth? Maybe you and Gaston have more in common than you think! Take this quiz and finally find out which Beauty and the Beast you are truly most like…Read More
