Hello! I’ve been doing a lot of book reviews recently so I’ve decided to do fun things like tags for a little while. This on is the ‘A Toast To Minor Characters’ book tag and I’m super excited. I will be interpreting the term ‘minor character’ quite loosely.
1. Name a minor character you want to see more of.
Isla Flynn from This Savage Song by V.E.Schwab ~ Isla is the oldest monster in the Flynn family and is covered in stars. I love how whimsical she is and her fascination with the stars, hiding a darker personality below the surface. I hope she is in the sequel a lot. Read more
Welcome to the ‘Mid-Year Book Freak Out’ Tag. This seemed like a nice way to wrap up the first half of the year so here we go!
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2016.
I absolutely love this series. It has a great magic system and I flew through the 700+ pages. You can check out my review here. Read more
Curl up on your sofa with a cup of tea, make sure you have a box of tissues and maybe a cat handy, and fall into On The Other Side. This is Carrie Hope Fletcher’s first novel and boy did she come out with a bang! I read this wonderful story full of love and magical realism in one sitting and suggest you do the same.
Falling Kingdoms is the first book in an ongoing YA fantasy series by Morgan Rhodes. Mytica is a world divided into three, this novel tells the tale of how the kingdoms are falling apart because magic, elementia, is all but lost. Can the prophesied sorceress save them?
Imagine a world where evil deeds create monsters. This Savage Song, book one in V.E.Schwab’s new series Monsters of Verity, is set in a world full of monsters, crime and fear. Kate Harker is a girl trying to be ruthless and August Flynn is a monster trying to be human. They need to help each other to overcome the violence that surrounds them in Verity. Read more
It’s Wednesday and this week’s brief for Top Five Wednesday is ‘Books You Wish Had A Sequel’. I’m going to be talking about stand alone books and completed series that I need more of. Obviously, Harry Potter is something I want more of but I’ve decided not to include it in this list to leave room for everyone else.

I adore this fairytale-style novel and desperately need to read more. I am emotionally attached to all the characters and would love to have a sequel.
Clay comes home one day to find a parcel on his door step. A parcel that contains thirteen cassette tapes from the girl he admired. The girl who killed herself. On these tapes Hannah tells him why, explains the events that led to her suicide. Thirteen reasons, thirteen people. And Clay is one of them.
