Day 26: A favourite quote from a book

I have a LOT of favourite quotes from books. I love each of those quotes and they mean so much to me that it'd be impossible to choose just 1 favourite! So, in no particular order, here's my top 5: "Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and… Continue reading Day 26: A favourite quote from a book

Day 24: A book that makes you laugh out loud

No books have ever made me laugh out loud as much as Confessions of Georgia Nicolson Louise Rennison. When I was about 14/15 I spent most of my summer reading those books and I don't think I have ever laughed that much in my life. I couldn't read them in public places because I'd start laughing so… Continue reading Day 24: A book that makes you laugh out loud

Day 23: A book you’re embarrassed to say that you enjoyed

Now is as good a time as any to admit I enjoyed Twilight. The entire series. I adored them. I got through the series really quickly and got so into them I am certain I welled up a few times whilst reading. I still wish to this day that Midnight Sun had been published properly, I really… Continue reading Day 23: A book you’re embarrassed to say that you enjoyed

Day 22: The best book I have read in the last year

The best book I have read in the last year is The Spectacular Now. It'd been my favourite film from the moment I watched it. I thought the story was so perfect and the characters were fantastic, I fell in love with it instantly. I didn't have a chance to read the novel for a long… Continue reading Day 22: The best book I have read in the last year

A book I never actually finished is book 1, Higher Institute of Villainous Education.  H.I.V.E. is a series of Young Adult novels written by Mark Walden. It is about a top secret school that was built to train children to become criminal masterminds, but the school is not all that it seems. In the first book, the protagonist, Otto,… Continue reading Day 21: A book I never actually finished

Day 20: Favourite childhood book

My favourite childhood book was the Enid Blyton Book of Brownies. I loved pretty much anything written by Enid Blyton. When I was really young my collection of books mainly consisted of Famous Five and Malory Towers but my absolute favourite was always a old little hardback copy of Book of Brownies. I would read it over and over until… Continue reading Day 20: Favourite childhood book

Day 18: A book you wish you could live in

No doubt about it, the book I wish I could live in is Harry Potter. Hogwarts, magic, brooms, pets in school, owl post... What is not to like? (Okay, maybe Voldemort etc is not so great but I could have joined the DA and helped out) Sadly I am too old to go to Hogwarts now.… Continue reading Day 18: A book you wish you could live in

Day 17: An author I wish people would read more

This is an easy one for me: Derek Landy. Derek Landy is the author of the Skulduggery Pleasant series. He is also one of the craziest, nicest and most down to earth people I have ever met. It was a pleasure to meet him twice and to get to spend some time with him and chat… Continue reading Day 17: An author I wish people would read more
