Header Image (9)

This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.

This week’s prompt is: Authors You Want to Read More From


1. Agatha Christie

I have read And Then There Were None & Murder on the Orient Express and really enjoyed both of them! Her writing and writing style is just amazing and I plan to read a lot more of her books!

2. Laini Taylor

I have read Strange the Dreamer and absolutely loved it! I wanted to read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series for a while but since reading Strange the Dreamer I want to read it even more now!

3. Sarah J. Maas

I have only read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. I’m currently waiting for A Court of Mist & Fury to arrive from Book Depository and have also Pre-ordered A Court of Wings and Ruin and plan to read them together. I enjoyed A Court of Thorns and Roses, it wasn’t absolutely amazing but everyone claims that A Court of Mist & Fury is even better, so I’m yet to see. I also own Throne of Glass and plan to read it. There is still 2 more books to come out in this series, so I will most likely leave it for a while yet so that way there isn’t a tonne of time between reading the ones that are out and waiting for the next books to come out.

4. Marissa Meyer

The only book by Marissa Meyer I have read is Heartless and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favourite. But that wasn’t because of Marissa Meyer’s writing, it was more because of the fact that it was a prequel of sorts to Alice in Wonderland and that meant that nothing was unexpected or unpredictable and I dislike predictable books.. So that I think just wasn’t the book for me. But I really want to try her The Lunar Chronicles series!

5. Jay Kristoff

I have read the first two books in The Illuminae Files and I can’t wait for the next book Obsidio. I haven’t read  any book solely by him as The Illuminae Files is Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff and also The Illuminae Files is not a good book to judge someone’s writing skills on because it’s so different from a normal novel. I own Nevernight and I really need to get to reading this book. If I enjoy Nevernight then I will consider reading his The Lotus War series.

Top 5 Wednesday – Books That Would Make Good Video Games

Screen Shot 2017-04-12 at 8.04.58 pm

This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.

This week’s prompt is: Books That Would Make Good Video Games

There may be slight. spoilers in this post.


1. The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

This would be an amazing game! Navigating the ships would be so fun!

2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

cover104679-medium

This world would be awesome to explore in game form! Discovering and exploring Weep &  exploring the dreams would be awesome too

3. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

This would be an awesome story to follow! Trying to find out where the King was on the ley line.

4. Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Meeting new peculiar children would be awesome, navigating the world and trying to save the Ymbrynes. Would be awesome.

5. Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling

I know Harry Potter already has the games that follow the books/movies, but I want something different! I want a game that you start by receiving your owl and going shopping in Diagon Alley for your school supplies. Then go to Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express and get sorted! Go to classes and perform spells in Transfiguration, Defence Against the Dark Arts & Charms, make potions, train creatures in Care of Magical Creatures & locate stars in Astronomy. Depending on what skills your best at you can graduate and find what job you would fit in and train in that and then go on to do that job in the wizarding world!

The same general Idea could happen with Fantastic Beasts too, maybe even Illvermorny being added in there or just finding Beasts and Training them, saving them or returning them to their homes!!

Someone needs to do this last one!


Well that is all for today! What books would you like to turn into games?!

Orange is the New Black on Netflix

I started rewatching this on Netflix as I was bored and couldn’t decide what to start watching.

Currently Reading

Well I actually finished reading Traitor To The Throne by Alwyn Hamilton this morning, so I’m not currently reading anything until I start another book tonight. I’m considering starting Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden though. I read it when i was in Year 9 or 10 in High School, but I don’t remember if I read the entire thing, but I know I really liked it and I want to read the whole series! It’s a pretty short book, so this should only take me a couple days.

Currently Listening

And that is all! I don’t think I watched any new movies in March.
