    ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY // fave books, Q&A, shoutouts + a survey

    TROPES THAT I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF (part 2)

    So a while back I did TROPES THAT SHOULD REALLY JUST LEAVE FOREVER and I wanted to do a “tropes that I love” post. I don’t hate all tropes actually… who would’ve thought? THE “I LOVE YOU BUT CAN’T/WON’T ADMIT IT” OR “SLOW-BURN” TROPE This may be a little annoying at times just because you want it to happen but it’s just not. It also usually takes the entire series to happen but like I love it? Yeah, I’m TRASH for romance. And also a crazy person. But like I can’t resist… THE “CHOSEN ONE SAVES THE WORLD” TROPE With this it kind of depends. Back when I started reading I loved…

    TYPES OF READING SLUMPS THAT WE BOOKWORMS HAVE TO SUFFER

    Okayyy so I’m in a bit of a slump and what better blog post then this? Let’s just get right into the kinds od terrors we all have to survive in the book world.

This happens to…

    TROPES THAT SHOULD REALLY JUST LEAVE FOREVER

    Okay, there are some tropes that just annoy the living daylight outta me and today we’re to name them. THE “DARK, BROODY, MYSTERIOUS LOVE INTEREST WHO’S PERSONALITY CONSTANTLY CHANGES” TROPE There’s (usually) always that one guy who is like a bad-boy and you can’t figure him out and he takes a liking to our main protagonist and they get along. Next day, the guy ignores her, or badmouthes or I dunno is just generally mean. Like dude, you don’t get to be like that. You’re giving the poor girl whiplash and just make us dislike you, especially if we have NO idea why you’re doing it. Can this trope just…

    HI THERE NEW YEAR // let's talk 2018, reading + more goals & a tag

    2017 flew by and now it’s 2018 and I have goals. I just wanted to chat about all the things I want to accomplish this year and just general things we talk about at the beginning of the year. READING GOALS I briefly discussed my reading goals in my End Of The Year Post there’s still more I want to talk about. I set my Goodreads goal to 30 books which mean I have to read at least 3 books a month, which is totally manageable, and that means I could read more if I have a lot of time, so that’s the first goal I also just want to read…

    WHAT'S UP, WEDNESDAY!

    Hi everyone! Exams have started so I’ve watched and read as many stories as I can in in preparation for the month of studying. Wish me luck… MOVIES I didn’t watch very many movies, but I enjoyed the ones I have I watched Spiderman Homecoming, and let me tell you how much I enjoyed it. I love Spiderman in general and this one was no let down. Tom Holland is great and cute and hilarious. I really enjoyed this one. I was in the mood for a teen romance movies, so I googled in and one of the first that popped up was Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging. The name…

    MY FAVOURITE SHIPS

    Where have I been you say? Writing exams *sighs*. Sorry I haven’t been so active, but today let’s all gush over our favourite ships. FROM BOOKS….. My all time favourite and the first I ever really loved is Clace (Clary + Jace from The Mortal Instruments). Jace is bae and I was just living this ship. I still do love it and always enjoy seeing them in other Shadowhunter books. Now, before Clace (and that kind of romance) I loved Percabeth (Percy + Annabeth from Percy Jackson books). Percy was (and still is) hilarious. I will go down with this ship. They were just so cute and I love them…
