Blogmas day 19– Goodreads Choice Awards 2021– results *reaction* πŸ†πŸ˜±

Hello lovelies!

Welcome to day 19 of Blogmas!! This month is FLYING BY and Christmas is only a few days away!!

The Goodreads Choice Awards 2021Β results came in and I wanted to talk about the results, who I voted for and what I think of the winners in the following categories:Β Historical Fiction,Β Fantasy,Β Romance,Β Young Adult Fiction,Β Debut Novel, Graphic Novels & ComicsΒ andΒ Young Adult Fantasy.

I’m really happy about the number of diverse books that were nominated this year. It truly shows a shift in the books that people are paying attention to and the voices that are being uplifted. However, I must express my disappointment over the fact that the same authors seem to win all the time, which isn’t to say that they don’t deserve it but it’s a shame that in the end there is no real change.

Blogmas Day 13 – Winter Wonderland Book Tag β˜ƒοΈπŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

I am back with another tag!! I have seen this tag around and have actually seen it from thisbellereadstoo but I don’t know the creator of the tag. Credits to them. I hope you enjoy!!

The Questions β˜ƒοΈπŸ“š

One: What book is so happy and so sweet that it just warms your heart?

Sick Kids In Love by Hannah MoskowitzΒ was the sweetest, cutest, healthiest romance ever! Because of my unconscious bias, I thought this would be tragic but it was actually a wonderful story about sick kids who fall in love and learn to navigate their feelings and their life. It was wonderful!

Two: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover…but I definitely did for A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder by Holly Jackson and I’m so happy I did! I’m planning a review soon on the whole series, so stay tuned!

Three: You’re sitting in a nice, comfortable chair with a cup of hot chocolate. What monster book are you reading?

Ohh I have discovered monster romances this year and I wish to read more! I loved That Time I Got Drunk And Saved a Demon by Kimberly Lemming and I really wish there were more books like this out there! It was delightfully funny, slightly ridiculous but very cute and wholesome. I can only recommend!

Four: It’s snowing outside and you decide you want to have a snowball fight. What fictional character do you want to have this snowball fight with?

I feel like I would love to have a snowball with a grumpy character, just to see them glare at me, and then slowly seeking revenge and getting lost in the game. I don’t know why but I would love to have a snowball fight with Mr Darcy! It would be so funny, and seeing him smile is priceless.

Five: Sadly, your campfire is dying. What last few chapters of a book would you throw in the fire to revive it and keep yourself warm?

Thankfully, not a lot of books came to mind, but I remember hating The Siren by Kiera Cass, so I wouldn’t mind throwing the last few chapters in the firee.

Six: What book do you love so much that you would buy another copy of it to give to someone as a Christmas gift (or any gift really) to inspire them to start reading?

Easy, Legendborn by Tracy Deonn. This will be my answer time and time again until I’m old and on my deathbed – Always, Legendborn.

Seven: Who do you tag?

I tag whoever wants to participate!!

Blogmas Day 10 – Books I gifted in the past πŸŽπŸ“š

Hello lovelies!

My love language is book giving and I thought it would be interesting to make a list of the books I have already gifted in the past and why. My thought process when I give books is essentially seeing first what type of reader the receiver is, that means: if they regularly read books or if they’re more of an occasional reader and then I try to figure out the person’s reading tastes from what they’ve told me. To be honest, I mostly give people books I have read and enjoyed because it’s safer but other times I just trust other people’s reviews or if the synopsis catches my eye.
