The I Dare You Tag II

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all well. I have been tagged by the wonderful Meghan @Whimsically Meghan for this tag. Thank you so much! I also feel so excited when I get tagged haha. Make sure to head over to Meghan’s blog for some quality content as well as some Stephen King fangirl!

What book has been on your shelf the longest?

As an English Literature major, I am ashamed to say that Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë has been sitting on my shelf for ages. I love 19th century English Literature and I just don’t understand why this book has been resisting me.

Hello lovelies!

November has been the worst month so far. I went to a funeral, I’ve been to the hospital – it was the worst. But I have had the a great reading month and that was nice at least. For one, I finished the Grisha Trilogy and I’m back home where my lovely mother is taking care of me.

Title: These Witches Don’t Burn

Author: Isabel Sterling

Synopsis: (Goodreads) Hannah’s a witch, but not the kind you’re thinking of. She’s the real deal, an Elemental with the power to control fire, earth, water, and air. But even though she lives in Salem, Massachusetts, her magic is a secret she has to keep to herselfSo, Hannah spends most of her time avoiding her ex-girlfriend (and fellow Elemental Witch) Veronica, hanging out with her best friend, and working at the Fly by Night Cauldron selling candles and crystals to tourists, goths, and local Wiccans. But dealing with her ex is the least of Hannah’s concerns when a terrifying blood ritual interrupts the end-of-school-year bonfire. Evidence of dark magic begins to appear all over Salem, and Hannah’s sure it’s the work of a deadly Blood Witch. While the pair attempt to smoke out the Blood Witch at a house party, Hannah meets Morgan, a cute new ballerina in town. But trying to date amid a supernatural crisis is easier said than done, and Hannah will have to test the limits of her power if she’s going to save her coven and get the girl, especially when the attacks on Salem’s witches become deadlier by the day.

Eleanor is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman -Book Review

Hello lovelies!

I am back with a review which took me a month to write because I needed to gather the broken pieces of my heart. (Yes, I’m a drama queen; what about it?)

Title: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely fine

Author: Gail Honeyman

Synopsis: Meet Eleanor Oliphant: she struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding unnecessary human contact, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen, the three rescue one another from the lives of isolation that they had been living. Ultimately, it is Raymond’s big heart that will help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. If she does, she’ll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all. (Goodreads)

Rating: 5 heartbreaking stars.

Title: Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1)

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Synopsis: Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Rating on Goodreads: 3,97/ 5 stars

Theme Thursay – Witches

Hello everyone,

I am back for another Theme Thursday and this month’s theme is: Witches! Witches are some of my favorite supernatural “creatures” and I love reading about them! So thank you Sophie for another great theme!

Theme Thursday is a monthly feature created by the wonderful and sweet Sophie @ Blame Chocolate where bloggers can share recs and newly found books featuring that month’s theme.

  • There will be a different theme (genre, trope, etc) every month. You can check the theme calendar here.
  • Those participating have to list titles that feature that theme in some way (doesn’t have to be the main theme of the book).
  • You can choose one of the four (or five) Thursdays of every month to post.
  • You can use the three main categories: Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading, Books I Want to Read, and Other Books That Fit The Theme but this isn’t mandatory.
  • You can repeat books in different themes, if they apply, and choose as many as you want.
  • You don’t have to take part every month! Just when you feel like it.
  • You can use #BlameThemeThursday on Twitter and other social media to make TT posts easier to find.
  • Finally, use this boxed text (or similar) in your post, as it doubles as a pingback.
