It’s no secret that I love Greek mythology, ever since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by the stories, so I feel like this tag could have literally been written for me. I was tagged by Meghan at Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews. Thanks so much for the tag Meghan, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers.

I have so many favourite books it’s honestly hard to keep track of them all, but if I have to choose just one (and when I say ‘just one’ I mean one book, not one series) my answer will always be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. She’s created a wonderful story and a fantastic world to explore, and even though I’ve already re-read this book so many times I can’t wait to re-read it again.
Vida from The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken.
Granted when Ruby first meets her in Never Fade Vida is very standoffish, but as she opens up we get to see how much more there is to her. She’s a determined fighter and fiercely loyal to those she loves, her sharp back-and-forth with every character was so much fun to read, but she has some heartbreaking vulnerabilities as well.
Like with my favourite book I have loads of favourite debuts, and I’ve got through some incredible ones this year alone, but like with my first answer there’s only one answer for this question and that is Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. It’s the start of one of my favourite series by one of my favourite authors, it made me want to travel to Prague and made me believe in magic again.
I actually don’t have one. Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever even read a nonfiction book
The current book I’m recommending to everyone is The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven. It’s honestly a brilliant book, with an incredible main character and such an important message. Plus the cover is really pretty, and what more do you need to know to convince you to add this one to your TBR list?
I feel like this one is going to take some explaining, so bear with me. There’s nothing wrong with All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, I was actually enjoying the story up until the part where something that is personally really triggering for me happened which I was unaware of. It made me feel really uncomfortable and just ruined the whole reading experience for me.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Honestly is there any other answer to this question? There’s a reason this book was at the top of the New York Times bestsellers list for so long after all. The Hate U Give is a beautiful, emotional and moving story which manages to exceed the hype it has. It’s a book I took a lot away from and a book that stayed with me long after I finished reading it.
When it comes to beautiful books the best are hardcover editions with a secret cover under the dust jacket.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
There was nothing wrong with this book, but nothing happened. There was no plot other than Feyre and Rhys coping with everything they lost in the war, and although I enjoyed the build up we got to the secondary characters stories which are still to be released I don’t feel like this book was a necessary part of the series.
I’m a fast reader so there are plenty of books I’ve sped through, but the most recent one that comes to mind is Bright Ruin by Vic James. I didn’t want to put this book down. It was one of those reads where I kept telling myself ‘one more chapter’, only to end up staying awake until I’d finished it and as a result being shattered the next day at work. It was worth it though.
