Last year, I flew through reading The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes and immediately wanted the sequel. Now that the sequel is here, I thought I would look back on a favourite quote of mine from the first book. I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing. So, that is exactly what I did.
All's fair in love, war and noodles . . . If Bao Nguyen had to describe himself, he’d say he was a rock. Steady and strong, but not particularly interesting. His grades are average, his social status unremarkable. He works at his parents’ pho restaurant, and even there, he is his parents’ fifth favorite employee. If Linh Mai had to describe herself, she’d say she was a firecracker. Stable when unlit, but full of potential for joy and spark and fire. She loves art, and she dreams of making a career of it one day. The only problem? Her parents rely on her in ways they’re not willing to admit, including expecting her to work practically full-time at their family’s pho restaurant. For decades, the Mais and the Nguyens have been at odds, having owned competing, neighboring pho restaurants. Bao and Linh have resolved never to befriend each other, for fear of pushing too far and bringing on undue heartbreak. But when a chance encounter brings Linh and Bao closer, sparks fly . . .
Another month is almost here, which can only mean one thing, more new releases to add to my TBR! I am always adding new books to my TBR because I love finding new stories that are out there in the world. New stories mean new adventures and what more can you want!
I love a good book tag and I feel like it has been a long time since I did one. I stumbled across this one the other day and though it looked like a lot of fun. The premise is, you select a book for each letter of the alphabet. You don't have to own or read the books either. Articles that start the title like the, A, An, etc. do not count. Here is the bookish alphabet tag.
I finished reading Love from A to Z by S.K Ali a few days ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a book that has been on my TBR for such a long time, so it felt good to finally read it. I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing. So, that is exactly what I did!
I am always very nosy when it comes to seeing what other people are currently reading, listening to and watching. So, to help with my own nosiness, I have started writing a monthly post in which I share what I am reading, listening to and watching. Here is this month's currently I'm...
Another month, means another book haul! Last months haul was small, this months haul is quite a bit bigger. Throughout August I hauled 14 books even though I wanted to buy an awful lot more. This haul consists of a few pre-orders, some presents for myself and some gifted to me by publishers. Here is my August book haul!
The monsters have known each other their whole lives. This is their final summer before college - time to hang out, fall in love and dream about the future. Until they accidentally start a forest fire which destroys their hometown and leaves death in its wake. Desperate for the truth to remain hidden, the group make a pact of silence. But the twisted secret begins to spin out of control and when one of the friends disappears they all become suspects. We know how it starts but where does it end?
August has been long but it is has been a very busy month and I have read a lot of books. Throughout August, I have read a total of 14 books, which is incredible for me. So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post! I have some thoughts that I wanted to share on the books I read throughout August. Here is a bunch of mini reviews for the books I read in August!
I cannot quite believe it, but I have been blogging for 5 whole years! I have loved every single second of being a blogger, meeting so many people thanks to blogging and all the opportunities that have arisen because of my blogging. I can't thank everyone who has followed me over the years for their support, I appreciate it so much. I started this blog with no expectations and I cannot believe where it has come. I cannot wait to see what the next year holds!
