The New Disney Princess Tag

Funnily enough my favourite Disney films don’t even have princess in them (The Fox and the Hound and Alice in Wonderland in case anyone was curious). When it comes to my favourite Disney princess through it’s a hard choice between Belle and Rapunzel. I was tagged by Eva at Brilliantly Bookish, and Sophie at Blame Chocolate. Thanks both so much for the tag, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Discussion Time: What is it About Anti Heroes We Love so Much?

A little while back I did a Top Ten Tuesday post talking about my favourite morally grey characters, and a lot of the comment and responses I got from other bloggers were talking about how their favourite characters weren’t the heroes of their favourite books, but the anti heroes.

And I’m the same. While I loved characters like Ezra in Illuminae, or Kell in A Darker Shade of Magic, I always preferred scenes with AIDAN in, or learning more about Holland’s past. I sometimes enjoyed reading about the morally grey characters more than reading about the heroes, and the more I thought about it the more I wondered why.

Top Ten Tuesday: Five Characters Who Deserved Better and Five Characters Who Got What they Deserved

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Characters I Liked that Were in Books I Disliked.

So it turns out I don’t have enough characters I liked in books I disliked to make a top ten list, in fact I don’t think I have enough books I disliked full stop. So instead for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post I’m featuring five characters who deserved better than they got – writing this post has made me realise I’m not quite over what happened to some of them – and five characters who got exactly what they deserved.

*Please be warned this post will include spoilers for a lot, if not all, of the books I picked this week.*

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favourite Romance Tropes and My Top Ten Bookish OTPs that Fall Under Them

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a love freebie, so I picked My Favourite Romance Tropes and My Top Ten Bookish OTPs that Fall Under Them.

Normally when it comes to Top Ten Tuesday’s Love Freebies I feature my bookish OTPs, or my favourite quotes from my favourite OTPs, but after a couple of years of that I’m trying something new for 2018. It’s well known that I’m too weak to walk by fairytale retellings or magical realism stories, but there are also plenty of relationships tropes I just can’t resist when I see them featured in the book I’m reading.

The Sims Book Tag

When I was younger I would spent hours upon hours playing the Sims, so much time would go into creating the perfect houses for each of the families I created. Granted I don’t play it at all now, but this tag brought back some fond memories for me. I was tagged by Heather at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for the tag Heather, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Christmas Cuisine Book Tag

Although I was tagged at the end of 2016 it hasn’t taken me a year to get around to the Christmas Cuisine Book Tag because there are so many tags in my queue, but because by the time I reached this one it was August. It makes zero sense to post a Christmas tag in August, so I’ve had to wait until December to take part in this one. I was tagged by Kirstie at Upside-Down Books. Thanks so much for the tag Kirstie, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Christmas Cuisine Book Tag

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you with a virtual hug and happy thoughts (and pixie dust if you can find it.)
  • Mention the creator (Kirstie at Upside-Down Books)
  • Try to eat as many of the foods as you can whilst writing this.
  • Wear funky socks.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favourite Books of 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Favourite Books of 2017.

Choosing my top reads of this year was possibly one of the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, and I didn’t even take the whole year into account. Back in June one of the Top Ten Tuesday themes was ‘Top Ten of the Best Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017’, so for this Top Ten Tuesday post I looked at the books I read between July and now. I had to make some cruel cuts, and incredible books like All the Crooked Saints, Clockwork Princess and Forest of a Thousand Lanterns were taken off my list to make way for the below ten.
