Blogmas Day #2 -The Joy of Christmas Book Tag

Hello lovelies! Welcome to day #2 of Blogmas!

I found this tag from Sam’s Nonsense‘s Youtube Channel and I thought it might be nice to properly kick off this Christmas season with a Christmas- related book tag! Let’s go!

1) Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating? ❆☃

I’m going to dedicate a post to my most anticipated releases soon, but to name a few I’m really excited for A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas, Excuse me While I ugly Cry by Joya Goffney One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston, Act your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert and Gods and Monster by Shelby Mahurin!

2) Christmas Songs & Carols: What book or author can you not help but sing its praises? ❅☃

Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey Mcquiston! Last Christmas I gifted it to my sister (who loved it) and recently gave it to a friend who wanted to get back into reading; cannot recommend this enough!

3) Gingerbread Houses: What book or series has wonderful world building? ❅☃

The Folk of the Air series and the A Court Of Thorns and Roses series have incredible world building! Have you noticed a pattern? I seem to love the Fae and I wish I lived in a world where they were present.

4) A Christmas Carol: Favorite classic or one that you want to read ❅☃

I have a few favourites that are perfect for this season: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. Perfect cozy holiday reads.

5) Christmas Sweets: What book would you love to receive for Christmas ❅☃

These Violent Delights, From Blood and Ash, Fable more than anything! (Kerstin my sister if you read this….you know what to get me for Christmas haha) -; These are the books I’m going to buy as soon as I get through my current TBR.

6) Candles in the Window: What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling ❅☃

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, always.

7) Christmas Trees & Decorations: What are some of your favorite book covers? ❅☃

Some of my favourite covers are these:

I really like intricate designs as well as art on my covers!

8) Christmas Joy: What are some of your favorite things about Christmas And/Or some of your favorite Christmas memories? ❅☃

I know it’s weird since I’m dedicating a whole blogging month to Christmas but I’m not a fan of Christmas in itself, but rather, the feeling, the happiness in the air, the songs, the snow, Christmas lights and Christmas markets..It’s not really about Christmas but more what it represents.

What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

June Wrap Up!

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe June is already over!  I had such a productive month! I did not get the exam results I hoped for but I got a lot of time to rest and relax and that meant more reading time! I read a fair amount of books and watched a lot of TV! Here are my June favourites!

I have a lot of catching up to do regarding TV shows but I finished watching Sex Education and it was so cool! I really love all the characters and how it tackles all those ‘taboo” topics such as abortion, masturbation and so on.

I missed these characters soooo much! I love how we get to see how everyone deals with the aftermath of his death and the trauma that ensues and everything that unraveled in the first season. I can’t wait to see how this season endsIfIg you haven’t seen the first season I highly recommend it! The show and the actors have won awards for their performances including a Golden Globe for Alexander Skarsgård!!


91kPp-nNY7L._SY606_I have finally watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Burr Steers,  adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel! I’m a sucker for P&P retellings and I loved the horror, gothic twist of the story! It was just badass and feminist and I liked how the Bennet sisters were portrayed. The cast was so well-chosen sepecially Darcy and Mr. Collin. It’s also funny that IRL Matt Smith and Lily James are dating when Lily James plays Elizabeth Bennet and Matt Smith plays Mr. Collins.
