HAPPY HALLOWEEN GUYS!

I love this time of year because all the leaves are pretty colours, the weather is cozy weather and it’s now the lead up to Christmas! Every year on Halloween I normally sit in and spend the night watching movies (normally Hocus Pocus because it’s a perfect Halloween movie) but tonight I’m working and I also need to dress up but I still don’t have a costume ūüė¶

This month has been another slow one as I’ve been working constantly at the World Championship Gymnastics so I’ve not had much time to read with the hours I’ve been doing.

The books I’ve read this month

23486013  Am I Normal Yet?

Twilight Saga

This is a series I was obsessed with when I was around 13/14 and even though I’ve still to re-read Breaking Dawn I honestly have no idea why I loved it so much. It’s only now that I’ve realised how problematic it is. Edward is controlling and way too overprotective, Bella is extremely whiny and just seems desperate all the time and the majority of the time would lead Jacob on even though she knew what she was doing Jacob could be pretty forceful and put Bella into awkward situations.

Sweet Tea

I loved this book! I’ve just finished it and posted my review which you can check out here.

Am I Normal Yet?

I’ve just recently started reading this as part of the UKYA Book Club that I joined and I’m enjoying it so far. I’m hoping to post a review of it once I’ve finished it so keep an eye out for that!

What have you guys been reading this month? Anything you can recommend to me? Also, I want to know about any horror novels you enjoy!! Let me know in the comments below!

The Autumn Book Tag

The Autumn Book Tag

Hi guys, sorry for the lack of posts over the past few weeks. I’ve been working so much recently and it’ll continue to be like that from now right up to Christmas unfortunately. However, I will try to keep posting at least once a week!

I was tagged by Deanna over at A Novel Glimpse to do the Autumn book tag. You should definitely go and check out her blog and give her a follow.

The Autumn Book Tag

1. What is your favourite thing about Autumn? 

  • I love the jumpers, the weather and the fact that it’s time for Halloween! I also love the colour of the leaves as they fall off the trees. They’re such beautiful colours.

2. What book reminds you of you school days?

  • I think I’m gonna have to say Cathy Cassidy’s books. I read them all when I was younger and they were some of my favourites. I was also lucky enough to meet her one year thanks to one of my teachers taking me on a school trip!

3. What cover reminds you of Autumn?

  • I’m going to have to say Night Owls by Jenn Bennett. The colours remind me of a cold autumn night sky and the gold colour of the leaves.

4. What is your favourite horror or Halloween story?

  • I don’t read a lot of horror so I’m going to have to say The Demonata series by Darren Shan. This series was one of my favourites as a young teen and it used to scare me every time I read it. It was full of blood and gore and demons. I spoke about the first book in the series¬†briefly in my last post which you can check out¬†here!

5. What is your favourite horror or Halloween film?

  • I don’t watch a lot of horror either but every Halloween I have to watch Hocus Pocus as it’s one of my favourite films! I used to love it as a child and I still do even now! I remember being scared of the Sanderson Sisters when I was younger too haha!

6. What fall book release are you looking forward to?

  • The book I’ve chosen was released a few days ago and it’s Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I love all of Rainbow Rowell’s books with Fangirl being one of my favourites and I’m so glad she released a Simon and Baz story!

  • Okay so this movie has been out for just over a week now but I’ve been wanting to see this since I seen the trailer for it. The movie is, The Intern. I’m a huge fan of Anne Hathaway and plus this looks like a really good movie. You can check out the trailer¬†here!
