    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…

    END OF THE YEAR POST // a tag, goals & favourite reads

    So it’s the end of the year and it’s been pretty succesful book related to I have a few things I’d like to talk about before 2018 starts, so let’s just get into it. I’ve already done an entire post about new releases I want to read next year so click here for that. GOODREADS CHALLENGE I set this year’s challenge to 20 books because I started a bit late but I don’t exactly know what to set it for next year: I’m thinking maybe 35? Or even 40??

    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…

    MY POTTERMORE SORTING STORY

    I thought this would be fun to share with everyone. I have multiple accounts because why not? And don’t we all? Anyway lemme share with you today’s weird post FIRST ACCOUNT Hogwarts House: Gryffindor Wand: Spruce wood with a Unicorn hair core 10 ¾” and Brittle flexibility Patronus: Kingfisher Ilvermorny House: Thunderbird Inside, I’m a Gryffindor. I love the house. Proabably because it’s the house we’re most familiar with. I like being in this house. When I was actually being sorted, I thought long and hard about my answers. I’m cool with the wand. I also think my patronus is a pretty elegant animal so I like that too. Don’t know…

    MY FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM MY FAVOURITE SERIES

    My first ever post was my all-time favorite series (click here to view). We all love one book more than another from our favourite series, so I want to share mine with you. Harry Potter (by J.K. Rowling) is awesome. I don’t where you have been if you’ve never heard of it. But I think my favourite of those books has to be Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. It’s such a good book and I love it so much. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is that series that I was obsessed with and couldn’t put down. There are two books that I can’t really decide between: City of Lost…
