Would You Rather Book Tag!

Happy Friday bookish people! I really love doing book tags, I think they are really fun and they remind me sometimes why I liked, and why I hold onto certain books. So, this month I thought I would bring you a few more starting with this one, the Would You Rather Book Tag! I found this tag on zeezeewithbooks.wordpress.com

Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?

This is a difficult question because I love both. I think I have to pick trilogies because I love getting involved with a familiar character and their next adventure in sequels.

Would you rather only read male or female authors?

This isn’t a question I can really answer because I read both and I think I always will.

Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?

I live in the UK and we don’t have Barnes and Noble but I would try and buy books from an actual bookshop rather than Amazon most of the time.

Would you rather books were turned into TV shows or movies?

I would choose tv shows because if I am watching an adaptation of a book then it’s a book I really love and if it is a tv show I can have hours of it to watch and really get involved with the world and the characters.

Would you rather read only 5 pages a day or 5 books per week?

There’s no way I could read 5 books a week so I have to choose 5 pages a day.

Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?

I’d really like to be both but if I could only choose one I’d pick author, that’s what all my studies have been for.

Would you rather be a librarian or bookseller?

librarian definitely.

Would you rather read only your favourite genre or every genre but your favourite?

So difficult because I like so many genres but I think I’d have to choose reading only my favourite genre, I don’t think I could give up fantasy.

Would you rather only read physical books or ebooks?

For me it is always physical books.

That’s it for this book tag, I hope you all enjoyed it! How would you answer these questions?

Easter Time Book Tag!

Happy Friday bookish people! Today I am bringing you an Easter themed book tag that I found on My Reading Escape.wordpress.com

I hope you will all have a wonderful Easter weekend with however you will be spending it, I will probably be spending mine eating a lot of chocolate and using my new coffee maker.

1. Easter Egg: Book that feels like a hidden gem

I have to choose The Lady in the Tower by Marie Louise Jenson for this one because it is a wonderful book that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else talk about

2. Bloom: Debut Novel You Loved:

I chose The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant for this book because I received it in an Illumicrate box and I read it in one sitting. It is a retelling of Les Miserables set in a beautifully described France.

3. Chocolate Bunny: Book so good you didn’t want it to end

I chose Caraval because it is one of my favourite books and as the prompt says, I didn’t want it put it down! This series is so magical I wanted to keep reading it for as long as I could.

4. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap: Book you bought for super cheap:

I actually was given this book for free by a really lovely bookseller, I was given a few of the little world book day books and this was one of them, I have already read it.

5. Jelly bean: Book you thought was sweet:

This book has a lot of lovely, sweet themes so Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell was the first book I thought of for this prompt.

6. Easter Basket: Filled with many surprises:

For this one I am choosing the entire A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas because although I have only read the first book, I have heard that there are many surprises throughout this series and I am excited to read them.

7. Rabbits: Books you wish would multiply (have a sequel):

I chose House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A Craig because ever since finishing it I really wished there had been a sequel, I just felt there were questions left unanswered.

8. Hunt: Book that was hard to get hold of:

I had to look everywhere for this book, there was only one bookshop that had it and the drive was over an hour, then when we got there I forgot to look for this book (I know, I couldn’t believe I did this either) and so I had to order it.

So that’s the end of this Easter book tag! I hope you all enjoyed it!

Birthday Book Tag!

Happy Friday bookish people! It is my birthday! I am 23, which feels very strange – sometimes I still feel like I’m 20 but I think that may just be because of the Pandemic. So, I thought it would be a good idea today to do a fun bookish tag so I found the Birthday book tag. I found it on pagesplots.com but on their tag it says they found it on Always Books.

Let’s get to the tag!

Birthday Cake – A Book With a plot that seems cliché but you adore it anyway

For this I went with Get A Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

I felt like I had read this plot a few different times but there were some new aspects to it in this book and I still really enjoyed this book.

Party Guests – Your most anticipated book release for this year

I think there are two for me, which are Only A Monster by Vanessa Len and Crescent City House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J Maas and I now already own both! I have read neither but I am very excited to.

Birthday Presents – A book that surprised you with how much you loved it

For this one I am choosing Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz

I knew I would like this book because it has an intriguing mystery but I ended up surprising myself with how much I loved it.

Happy Birthday Song – A book that certainly deserves all the hype it got

The Caraval series by Stephanie Garber, definitely!

Happy Music – A book with some very beautiful and truly memorable quotes

I have to choose the Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, it’s just so magical and fantastical. The quotes are beautiful.

Getting Older – A book that you read a long time ago but you think you would appreciate more if you read it as a more mature reader

This is a really tough one, I am not sure what I can answer this with. I am thinking probably any book by Philippa Gregory because I read them all a few years ago but I think they would mean more to me if I read them now.

Sweet Birthday Memories – A book that kept you incredibly happy during a sad or demanding period of your life

I have to choose the lady in the Tower by Marie Louise Jenson, all her books kept me going throughout my high school period, there was a lot of things going on that I was struggling with and reading was the only thing that made me feel better.

That’s it for this book tag, I hope you all enjoyed it!

Three Bookish Things Book Tag

Happy Wednesday bookish people! I am very excited to be doing this tag today, I was tagged by JenJenReviews and it really made me think, I thought it was going to be easy but I needed to have a long look at my books to answer some of them (not that I mind staring at my beautiful books).

Let’s get to the questions!

Three read once and loved authors

  • Kester Grant – I read her novel Court of Miracles and absolutely loved it, I can’t wait for the next book to be released.
  • Elly Griffiths – I picked up The Postscript Murders on a whim because it sounded interesting and I ended up reading it in one evening so I’m definitely looking to get the rest of her books at some point soon.
  • Deanna Raybourn – I read A Curious Beginning last week and now I need to know what happens in the rest of the series.

Three titles I’ve watched but haven’t read

  • The Vampire Diaries – I didn’t technically watch this one… my sister loved it and would always have it on the TV so I pretty much watched it all without intending to.
  • Shadowhunters – I have seen and loved the TV series on Netflix but I haven’t finished the book series, I did read the first one and I own them all but I haven’t continued them yet.
  • Game of Thrones – again I have watched all the seasons but I haven’t picked up the book series yet.

Three Characters you love

  • Audrey Rose Wadsworth from the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco – she’s a very strong female lead and I just absolutely love her (and Thomas Cresswell, in my mind they come as a pair so they only count as one here)
  • Scarlet Dragna from Caraval by Stephanie Garber – one of my favourite books ever I had to pick the main protagonist from this series.
  • Wrath from Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco – can you tell I love this author? She writes amazing books, and well her fictional men are pretty great too. I am excited to see wrath again in Kingdom of the Cursed which comes out in October.

Three series binged

  • The Cruel Prince series by Holly Black – what can I say, the second one ended on a cliffhanger so I had to pick up the third book straightaway.
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I read these while in secondary school and loved them and the spin off series.

Three favourite book covers

  • Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angelles
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  • The Betrayals by Bridget Collins

Three Goals for this year

  • To get more followers and friends – I only started a few months ago and the bookish community is so welcoming and friendly, I’d love to get more bookish friends in the next year.
  • Hopefully start a PhD – I’ve sent in my applications it’s just the waiting
  • To be less stressed – this is the most unlikely one, I’m always busy and I’m always stressed. I’d love to learn to relax a bit more.

Thank you for reading that’s the end of this tag!

The 50 Bookish Questions Tag

Happy Friday bookish people! Today I’m posting a book tag that I saw on Adventures of a Bookish Girl’s blog – the 50 bookish questions tag! If you want to do this tag yourself, then consider yourself tagged.

  1. What was the last book you read? This might be cheating a little but I’m about 100 pages away from finishing The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss.
  2. Was it a good one? Yes! The first 100 pages were a bit slow but since the action picked up I’m loving it.
  3. What made it good? Hmm.. a lot of things are good about it but I think I’ll go with the mix of characters in the story.
  4. Would you recommend it to other people? Yes, definitely!
  5. How often do you read? I try to read every day but with my job and University work at the moment It’s been more like three or four times a week.
  6. Do you like to read? Um…yes.
  7. What was the last bad book you read? What A Way To Go by Julia Forster. It isn’t a bad book and other people might love it, that’s the great thing about books, I just got no enjoyment from reading it at all.
  8. What made you dislike it? I didn’t understand the setting or what was happening in the plot and I didn’t feel anything for the characters.
  9. Do you wish to be a writer? Yes, hopefully…I’m just finishing up my Creative Writing Master’s degree right now.

  11. Do you read fan fiction? Nope.
  12. Do you write fan fiction? That’s also a no.
  13. What’s your favourite book? Right now my favourite book is, and it has been for a while, The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern.
  14. What’s your least favourite book? I can think of a lot of these, most of them are books I’ve had to read for my classes like the Odyssey by Homer, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and Ulysses by James Joyce.
  15. Do you prefer physical books or read on a device? Physical books definitely, I don’t quite get into them as much if I read them on a device – plus glare from the screen.
  16. When did you learn to read? According to my mum I learnt to read before I went to nursery, which is age 4 in the UK, so I was quite young.
  17. What is your favourite book you had to read in school? Ooh that would either be Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck or Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

  21. Who is your favourite character in a book series? …I can’t choose.
  22. Has a book ever transported you somewhere else? All the time! Every book really.
  23. Which book do you wish had a sequel? Hm..for this I’m going to say The Left Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix, I have to know what happened to the characters after the end of that book!
  24. Which book do you wish didn’t have a sequel? Ah, I don’t know an answer for this one – so far I don’t remember reading any sequels and thinking they would have been better leaving it at the first book.
  25. How long does it take you to read a book? That depends on how long it is. I usually read 100 pages an hour on average so a 400 page book I will read in about four hours.
  26. Do you like when books become movies? That’s a tough one because sometimes I like them and other times I don’t.
  27. Which book was ruined by it’s movie adaptation? The first one that comes to mind for me is Allegiant, the last book in the Divergent series.
  28. Which movie has done a book justice? Well, I think The Hunger Games was quite good, but the books are still better.
  29. Do you read newspapers? Not usually, sometimes I read the local one that comes through the letterbox.
  30. Do you read magazines? Only my monthly writing magazine and sometimes the odd history magazine if it is something I’m interested in.
  31. Do you prefer newspapers or magazines? Magazines.
  32. Do you read while in bed? Only if I can’t sleep and I decide to read to pass the time.

  39. Is it hard for you to concentrate when you read? No, it’s very easy for me.
  40. Do you need a room to be silent when you read? No, actually I like to have a show that I’ve seen a lot of times on in the background – but I do need people to not interrupt and try to talk to me a lot because that’s just annoying.
  41. Who gave you your love for reading? Nobody that I know, my family don’t read that much, other than me.
  42. What book is next on your list to read? Either Lore by Alexandra Bracken or Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

  50. Which books should be banned in all schools? I don’t really agree with banning books so I’m not going to answer this question.

That’s it for this book tag, I hope everyone enjoyed it!

Book Reviews

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer Book Review

Happy Monday Bookish People! Here is the book review for the second book that I read for the Becca and the Books 48 hour Bookopolathon challenge. The second prompt was a fantasy book and I chose A Curse so Dark and Lonely because, it was on my March TBR, and also I have the full trilogy on my shelf and I hadn’t yet read it. It was about time I finally read it, so many people have recommended it to me.

I will give star ratings for four categories and I will write a little about each one. I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible. I hope you enjoy reading my book review.

Plot:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book is advertised as a Beauty and the Beast retelling, and it is one of the best retellings that I have read. I think the plot of this book is well constructed and builds the tension brilliantly. It starts with an event that is a catalyst for the rest of the novel and it is paced well so the novel has both exciting events and tension but also leaves enough room for character development. This book has a great plot for this book and it also sets up an over arching plot for the rest of the series which has made me very excited to read the rest of this series – soon!

Characters:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I loved the characters in this book. The main protagonist is Harper and her personality is headstrong and fierce while being very caring. From the first page I had to know what would happen with her character, I was rooting for her. The two main male characters the first book follows is Prince Rhen and his loyal Guardsman Grey. Both of these are well developed interesting characters who I am very excited about seeing where their stories go. I felt that the ending of this book was slightly rushed with certain parts of it but still had a satisfying ending.

Dialogue and Writing:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The writing style in this book is a comfortable and easy read, it matches the genre of fantasy well. As for the dialogue I felt this novel had good dialogue between the characters that really cemented their relationships and helped create the mood for the novel overall.

Overall:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall I gave this book five stars because I really enjoyed it and instantly wished I could pick up the second one and read it immediately, unfortunately I couldn’t but that’s what I wanted to do. It was well written, well balanced between plot and character and a brilliantly clever retelling.

Blurb/Synopsis:

Fall in love, break the curse.

Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year, Prince Rhen, the heir of Emberfall, thought he could be saved easily if a girl fell for him. But that was before he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. Before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, Harper learned to be tough enough to survive. When she tries to save a stranger on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s pulled into a magical world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. A prince? A curse? A monster? As she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

That’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it! If you’ve read this book, what did you think of it? Do you enjoy retellings?

The Bookshelf Tag

Happy Friday bookish people! I hope everyone has nice days planned for themselves, I have some work to do for a University assignment and a transcript to write but I might be able to squeeze some reading in later. It’s been almost a week since I’ve had chance to read anything and I’m feeling the effects.

Today’s post is the Bookshelf Tag! I had a really good time answering the questions in this tag, it made me look at my bookshelf for a looong time.

  1. Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from?
    well, my room is small, like really really small. There’s enough room for my chest of drawers, my bed and a tiny walking space. That’s it. Literally my wardrobe is in the hallway so there’s no room for a bookshelf in my room. My Dad built shelves all around the walls of my room so that’s where my books are – and of course in my new book cart I got yesterday for my birthday!
  2. How do you organise your books?
    Okay, here’s something about me – I love organising, anything lists, books, documents, EVERYTHING so I change how I organise my books all the time. Currently they are split into two halves – books I’ve read in alphabetical order then moves into books I haven’t read in alphabetical order. I don’t know how long it will stay like this…
  3. What’s the longest book on your shelf?
    With 984 pages it has to be Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas which I actually have two copies of

4. What’s the shortest book on your shelf?
It’s actually a book that I’m borrowing from my partner, and I have had it for many months, called The Oubliette (I think? I might even have the title wrong! oh dear…) it has under 300 pages.

5. Is there a book that you received as a birthday gift?
Well, yesterday being my birthday (I now have to remember I’m 22) so I got a few books there: I hope you’re listening by Tom Ryan, Cosy Crime Short Stories, Detective Short Stories, the Caraval Collectors Edition, the Throne Of Glass Collectors Edition, Paris by Starlight and All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace. I’m very excited for all of them.

6. Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?
My friend got me Paris by Starlight for me for my birthday so I guess that counts, otherwise I actually don’t think there is. There’s lots of books that were recommended to me by my friends but none they actually got me.

7. The most expensive book on your shelf?
I have a beautiful version of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo with gold page edges and it’s so nice I don’t let anyone touch it. I’m not sure exactly how much it cost but I think it was about £50…

8. The last book you read on your shelf?
Ooh this was What A Way To Go by Julia Forster and I must say I did not enjoy this book very much at all.

9. Do you have a complete series?
Yes, many, but the one in particular that is coming to mind is the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri maniscalco. I LOVE this series, I’m pretty sure it’s always going to be one of my favourite series’ and also one of my top OTPs.

10. What’s the newest addition to your shelf?
The Caraval Collectors Edition. It took me ages to put it on my shelf because I didn’t want to let go of it, I love it so much. It has a chapter in Julian’s POV and it’s all I’ve ever wanted.

11. The oldest book on your shelf?
That would be Robinson Crusoe but the less said about that the better.

12. What’s a book you’d hate to let out of your sight?
All of them. If you take my books then you’re honestly risking your life.

13. Most beat up book?
I’m actually not sure, there’s an awful crack down the spine (and in my heart!) of my copy of The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

14. Most pristine book?
All the ones I haven’t read yet, and there are many many books I haven’t read yet on my shelves…

15. A book that doesn’t belong to you?
A Deal With the Elf King by Elise Kova, it’s actually my mum’s but she keeps it on my shelf.

16. A book that is your favourite colour?
Well, my favourite colour is forest green so.. ooh the Strange Case of the Alchemists Daughter by Theodora Goss is really close to my favourite colour!

17. A book that’s been on your shelf the longest and you still haven’t read it?
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I even did a module about Austen on my University course and still didn’t read it.

18. Any signed books?
I have many signed books. Where I live it’s very difficult to just go and get books signed so whenever a book I want has a signed edition to buy I’ll always choose the signed one if I can.

That’s it for today’s tag! I hope you all enjoyed it! My next post is going to be some book reviews so come back for them if you’re interested.

Fan Casting Books

Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell – Fan Casting

It’s Friday! I hope everyone is having a good day – and a good week, I haven’t posted my usual Wednesday blog post this week because I wasn’t very well after having the first vaccine. Thankfully I’m better now and I’m here with something I haven’t done before. As you will have seen from the title today I will be telling you who I would choose to play some of the main cast of characters in Spellslinger (the first book in the series) by Sebastien De Castell if it was ever turned into a film or TV series.

It was very difficult to choose these, I tried to stick to the physical descriptions of the characters if there is one in the book but also personalities.

So, first there is the protagonist of the series: Kellen.

For Kellen I went with Asa Butterfield (Merlin, Sex Education) because I think he would be able to portray Kellen’s slightly clumsy, always accidentally being in the middle of trouble, sarcastic personality quite well. Kellen is described as having straw blonde hair and blue eyes, which Asa sometimes has. Well, he always has blue eyes but his hair is naturally dark but is sometimes blonde. Asa could do both the serious and the lighter sides of the story justice as the character of Kellen.

Next is Ferius Parfax:

Mandatory Credit: Photo by Gregory Pace/REX/Shutterstock (10188748ae) Julianne Moore Variety’s Power of Women, Arrivals, New York, USA – 05 Apr 2019

Julianne Moore! When I first got the books, I got the complete series all in one go because I just knew I would love it, and I saw on one of the covers the illustration of Ferius Parfax I instantly was picturing Julianne Moore playing the character. I’m still not sure why but I think she would play her attitude very well.

My favourite character – Reichis:

Of course for Reichis it would be all about the voice rather than physical appearance, I mean I assume they wouldn’t be able to find a real talking squirrel cat who likes to eat eyeballs… anyway, there’s a lot of great voices out there and I could not decide on one, my friend suggested Danny John-Jules (Death In Paradise). Her reasoning was that he’s got a great voice and he’s sarcastic (this is actually what she said) which is basically Reichis so this is who I’ll choose. In case you’re wondering my friend’s second choice was Danny DeVito.

Kellen’s Sister – Shalla:

For Kellen’s younger sister Shalla I would probably choose Chloe Grace Moretz, I have seen her in quite a few films and she plays a variety of characters very well. Shalla is a high achiever but she is very close to Kellen and I think that Chloe and Asa would work well together in this way.

Father of Kellen and Shalla – Ke’heops:

This was another very difficult choice because there are a lot of great actors who would work for this role. I ended up choosing Joe Manganiello. I haven’t seen this actor in anything personally but I did recognize the name and when I looked on google his physical appearance looked a lot like the illustration of Ke’heops on the most recent book in the series, Crownbreaker. Is it just me that thinks he looks similar to the illustration? It’s probably just me.

Finally, Nephania:

I would choose Felicity Jones to play Nephania. After Julianne Moore as Ferius, Felicity Jones as Nephania was the easiest casting choice for me to make because she has the brown hair physical appearance of Nephania and she also has that slightly innocent quality that the character has but she can also be fierce when she needs to be. That is one of the things I like about the character of Nephania.

Okay, there we go, that is all of the characters that I will be fan casting today. There are many other characters in the book but no others that I felt were described clearly enough for me to choose someone to play them.

Only a short post today, I hope you found it fun and I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know what other books you think I should do a fan casting for!
