Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt 📚 Blogtober #30

I have done a book shelf scavenger hunt on my YouTube before but it had different prompts. So I thought I would give this one a go!

1. Find a book that starts with an “N”

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

2. Find a book cover that’s mostly brown

Pride by Ibi Zoboi

3.  Find a book that’s based on a true story

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

4. Find a multiple perspective book

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

5. Find a book you read last year

Enchantee by Gita Trelease

6. Find the most recent book that you bought

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

Well this is the most recent one I got in the mail anyway. My most recent purchases online have not arrived yet!

7. Find a book cover you don’t like

After the Funeral by Agatha Christie

8. Find a retelling

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

9. Find a book that is also a movie

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I am still yet to watch it but it is a movie!

10. Find a book written this year

Loveless by Alice Oseman

Well maybe not written this year but it was published this year!

11. Find a non-fiction book

The Complete MAUS by Art Spiegelman

12. Find a book you have told others to read

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

13. Find a book with a tree on the cover

In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire

14. Find a book where the author’s name is the same as yours (first, middle or last)

Yeah, I don’t own one. I don’t even know of any books by someone with the first name Eliza or last name Eames. So instead I chose a book that has a character called Eliza. She isn’t a main character but she is in there!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

15. Find a book you have read more than once.

Akarnae by Lynette Noni

16. Find a book you didn’t finish

Don’t have one for this. I don’t keep books I have DNFd…

17. Find a book with a king in it

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

The king may not have been a major character and also not in the book for long but he was there, so it counts!

18. Find a book that’s purple with its dust jacket off

This is the OwlCrate edition of All the Stars and Teeth. The original cover has a blue naked hardcover.

19. Find a book you will read by the end of the year

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron
Let’s Chat!

Have you done a bookshelf scavenger hunt before?! Because if you haven’t you should give it a go! Give yourself a time frame if you want to make it a challenge!

My Life in Books Tag 📚 Blogtober #24

Today I am doing the My Life in Books Tag! So let’s jump in!

1. Find a book for each of your initials

Well I don’t have a middle name, so this is easy!
E: Escpaing from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco
E: Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Librarby by Chris Grabenstein

2. Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?

Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

3. Pick a book set in your city/country

Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to

Does this have to be real life location because screw that! I’m going to Medora!

Akarnae by Lynette Noni

5. Pick a book that’s your favourite colour

The Tales of Beedle the Bard

This light bluey purple colour it just stunning! My exact favourite colour is a kind of turquoise/aqua/teal kinda colour but I don’t have a book that is exactly that colour. I do have a candle that is this exact colour I love though! You can find it HERE!

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

This is an obvious one. Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart even if the author is a questionable human being.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

Salt to the Sea is a WWII book that is written beautifully and is definitely a difficult one to stomach as it’s just so heartbreaking!

8. Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

Gothic Fantasy: Detective Mystery Short Stories

This is a massive short story collection that has ALOT of stories in it! I’d love to read it but it’s just huge & will be a big commitment.

Let’s Chat!

What book on your TBR will be a massive accomplishment for you?

How I Read Book Tag 📚 Blogtober #10

I haven’t done any tags in ages so I thought I would throw some in during BlogTober! This one was apparently created by EnyasCorner on YouTube but it no longer has any content on the account so I can’t be sure. The post I saw this on was from 6 years ago! But I like the questions, so let’s jump in!

1. How do you find out about new books to read?

At the moment Booktube & Instagram mostly. Also Facebook Groups are a good place to find recommendations as well! I haven’t really been reading blog posts lately as I just haven’t been in the mood but I usually get reccs from there too.

2. How did you get into reading?

I have always been kinda interested in reading and I used to read books when I was in primary school but then I didn’t read for most of High School until I received a copy of Switched by Amanda Hocking in a Dolly Magazine and read it and loved it and then read the other books in the series as well as other books by the author. I then read Vampire Academy & the companion series Bloodlines and then took another long break. It wasn’t until I discovered The YA Chronicles subscription box (No longer available) & the Book Blogging community that I fully dived into read again and I haven’t stopped since.

3. How has your taste in books changed as you’ve gotten older?

Fantasy has definitely always been my favourite genre with Sci-Fi, Mystery & Historical Fiction being my second favourites and I have never been interested in romances. However now I am kinda discovering that my taste is changing from Fantasy being my favourite genre to Mystery/Thriller/Horror being my thing. I love a fantasy with a mystery as well but I am gravitating more to Mystery/Thriller/Horror now than I am to any other genre.

4. How often do you buy books?

Often! I generally buy books in batches of 4 or 5 because then I can get free shipping through Angus & Robertson which is my go to store. I usually place an order anywhere from 1 to 4 times a month depending on cash at the time but I do tend to pre-order a lot too so those orders come in over a couple months.

5. How did you get into BookTube/Book Blogging?

I’m answering this for both as I have both. For Blogging I really don’t remember who I read or what made me think ‘hey I can do that’ but I love designing websites and I used to spend hours messing with my Tumblr accounts so I took some time and set up a blog through WordPress and my first post was a review of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton which is still an all time fave!
As for BookTube I’m also not sure what specifically made be do it but I discovered BookTube and at the time I was filming a lot on Instagram Stories for my Bookstagram account so I thought fuck it, why not do YouTube too.

6. How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?

I honestly don’t know how to respond to this? I finish the book and review it like usual? Depending on whether I liked the book overall I may continue if it’s a series. But that’s about it.

7. How often have you taken a sneaky look at the back page of a book to see if it’s a happy ending?

I have never actually done this. Or even ever been tempted really.

Let’s Chat!

Has your taste in books changed over the years?! Or am I the only one that did a full 360 on what genre I enjoy most!

Tag Sunday: The Reader Problems Book Tag

I wasn’t specifically tagged in this one but I have been trying to get back into blogging more, so I thought bringing back Tag Sunday. I saw Destiny from Howling Libraries do this one, so decided to give it a go as well! You should also go and check her out!

1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How do you decide what to read next?

Probably find a ReadAThon with specific challenges and join that and let the challenges choose what I read!

2. You’re halfway through a book, and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?

DNF for sure! I DNF fairly regularly as I can usually feel pretty early if I’m going to find a book boring. No point wasting time on average books when you could be reading awesome ones!

3. The end of the year is coming, and you’re behind on your reading challenge. do you try to catch up? And if so, how?

Try and catch up! Probably join a ReadAThon which will push me to read more & also find some audiobooks & graphic novels on Scribd that I can get through quickly!

4. The covers of a series you love do not match. How do you cope?

If its a series that I could buy matching editions of (that are pretty) but just don’t have the cash for it ATM, then I’m not too worried as I know I’ll buy the good matching covers at some point. However, if the publisher’s change the covers part way through a series or something along those lines and I can’t get matching covers, then that frustrates the hell out of me. If its a series I love though I’ll get over it eventually even if it pisses me off.

5. Everyone and their mother love a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?

I don’t really know. Even the people who I have very similar tastes as there is still the odd couple of popular books that I’m not a fan of. So don’t really have a specific person.

6. You’re reading a book in public, and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?

Sorry, can’t relate. I barely ever read in public except the very odd occasion at the Drs. And also I barely ever cry in books. So I’ve never had this issue, so I have no idea.

7. The sequel to a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happens. Are you going to reread it?

It depends on the book really. Sometimes I will reread but usually I’ll just jump into it. On the odd occasion I will google a book overview for the book I can’t remember.

8. You do not want anyone to borrow your books. How do you politely say no when someone asks?

Yeah, if you know me then you will know that I don’t do most thinks politely. So I would likely just say ‘Nope, don’t lend my books!’… I also don’t even have a real life person that would want to borrow any books as basically none of my mates read or if they do it’s only very small amounts.

9. You have picked up and put down five books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?

Reread Harry Potter series and/or jump on the audiobook bandwagon. Sometimes rerad Harry Potter via audiobook. Also Agatha Christie Audiobooks are great!

10. There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?

That depends on what I can afford. I work seasonally, so from April to September it’s usually a bit tight, so I usually utilise AfterPay and get a couple books at a time with breaks inbetween. Thank goodness for AfterPay 😂

11. After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read, how long do they sit on your shelf before you read them?

Firstly, uhm, Rude! That really depends. Sometimes I read them within the month but also sometimes I leave them for months of years. There isn’t really a good answer for that one!

I Tag!

Anyone who feels like doing the tag!
I’ve been super inactive on here for months. So I really need to get back into that and make some friends again. 😂

What are your thoughts on DNFing? Are you like me and just scrap a book if you’re not loving it?

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Header Image (11)

I haven’t done a tag in forever! So I decided I would do one now! All I did was go into the WordPress Reader and scrolled until I found a tag! So the first tag I found was the Totally Should’ve Book Tag and The Book Dutchesses is who posted it.

Let’s jump in!

1. Totally should’ve…..gotten a sequel

30237061

I do love that this was a standalone as YA Fantasy standalone’s are rare, but also this book was amazing and I wanted more.

2. Totally should’ve…… had a spin-off series

Harry Potter Audiobooks from Audible_thumb

Do I really need to explain myself?

3. Totally should’ve……who totally should write more books

rebel-of-the-sands-trilogy

This is Alwyn Hamilton’s debut and it was bloody amazing!! So I need something else from her!

4. Totally should’ve……ended differently

Mockingjay-UK-Adult-Cover

There is one specific thing that should have been different at the end of this book! But I don’t want to spoil anyway, sooo….

5. Totally should’ve……had a movie franchise

I am not going to answer this but knowing how a lot of book to movie adaptations go, they ruin it. So no.
But a book that would make a cool movie would be Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

9781405921886

6. Totally should’ve……had a TV series

Same as for the movie. I don’t want it ruined but a book that would make an awesome TV show if done correctly would be The Menagerie Series by Tui T Sutherland & Kari Sutherland

7. Totally should’ve……had one point of view

9781473647602

I wouldn’t necessarily say this should have had only 1 POV, but less than it did might have been nice to connect with the characters more. I do love multi POV books though.

8. Totally should’ve……had a cover change

These covers are just no!! I honestly prefer the 10th year anniversary & movie covers (below) to these. But none of them are great. Out of all of them, the movie cover is the best-looking one and that is saying something! This series is amazing can we please do something about these shitty covers though!

9. Totally should’ve……kept the original covers

I have a couple.

First off, I don’t hate the cover change itself as the new UK covers are awesome too. But it pisses me off that they changed it mid way through a series! If you’re going to do that, still come out with the next books as a matching cover. and the new covers. Like Alwyn Hamilton did with Rebel of the Sands!

Next, I know both are still available but the first covers are gorgeous!!

10. Totally should’ve……stopped at one book

Okay, so for this one it should have stopped after the second book.

I really enjoyed Firstlife & Lifeblood but Everlife, my god! It read like a fucking Adult romance 80% of the time! And it’s meant to be a YA fantasy. It was just bad.

I Tag

I usually don’t tag specific people, but I thought fuck it. Why not, so I tag:

Kathy @ Books and Munches

Maya @ Fire-Breathing Book Dragon

Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Arwa @ One’s Peculiar

Tag Sunday – Currently Reading Book Tag

Header Image (16)

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve done a tag, but I have been busy! But I’m back.



1. How many books do you usually read at once?

I only ever read 1 book at a time but I am also listening to another audiobook at the same time. Usually, 2 actually as I am always listening to a Harry Potter audiobook and then one other book.

2. IF YOU’RE READING MORE THAN ONE BOOK AT A TIME, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHEN TO SWITCH BOOKS?

I swap between audio and normal book depending on whether I’m doing something or not.

3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?

Nope.

4. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

On my bed next to my pillows.

5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

Night usually. If I’m not working or busy then I will read for a few hours. If not then I will usually read from about 10/11 till 2am usually.

6. How long do you typically read in one setting?

That just depends on how long I have but 4 hours is usually the longest.

7. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?

Off as I don’t want to tear it by accident.

8. What position do you mainly use to read?

I’m usually either sitting in my lounge, sitting or lying on my bed.

9. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere?

No, I don’t. I will take it with me if I’m going away somewhere or if I know I will have waiting time but other than that I leave my books at home.

10. How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?

I update it when I put the book down and go to do something else. I use Bookout most though. If you don’t know what Bookout is, it’s an app where you put in the book you’re reading and press the reading button and it records the time you read and at the end of the session you put in the page numbers or percentage and it will estimate how long it will take to finish the book if you continue at the same pace. You can pause your session at any time and also pause and add thoughts on the book and quotes that you like. Also when you finish a book you can bring up a stats pages which shows you pages read, total reading time, reading speed in pages/h, most pages read in a day & most minutes read in a day. It’s a really cool app!



Blog Title

Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 2 people in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest 2 followers! These will also be only followers that I follow back as well as there is no point in tagging someone I don’t follow.

Tag Sunday (kinda) – I Love Spring Book Tag

Copy of Review Banner (8)

So, I started this a few days ago when I was bored and then my mate turned up so I had to pause… Then I was planning on doing it yesterday as a Tag Sunday post, but I was so tired so I just went to bed. So here it finally is!

I will be getting back into Tag Sunday’s from now on as I have been so slack!

So let’s get straight into it!



1. How is spring where you live?

Bloody hot and dry.

2. Anticipated book release this Spring?

3. What book cover makes you think of Spring?

4. Where are you going to read this month?

That’s kinda an odd question? I’m going to read in the same places as the rest of the year? Bed & longue as usual.

5. Find a cover with a sun on it?

10345927

6. What are your favourite spring reads?

I don’t read certain genres in certain seasons. I just always read YA fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian and historical fiction.

7. Find a book with many different colours on it.

I’m choosing a series & a single book that I instantly thought of when reading this question.

warcross_030717

8. Who do you tag?



Review Titles (6)

So usually I tag my 2 latest followers, but as this tag is limited to people who are in Spring atm I’m not going to tag anyone in particular. But if you are in Spring right now then consider yourself tagged!



Also if you are a fellow Aussie then let me know in the comments!

Hogwarts Tag

So this is a bonus tag but as soon as I saw this I had to do it! I am obviously a massive Harry Potter fan and I will never pass up a chance to talk about Hogwarts!

So, I’m going to get straight into the questions. Also, I tag EVERYONE!!



Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?

Well my mum has read the first 3 books and getting to the others and watched all the movies and my dad doesn’t read, he has seen all the movies though because he didn’t really have a choice haha. So I would probably say Half-Blood.

Which wand chose me?

Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 9.08.30 pm

Did I take an owl, cat, rat, or toad with me?

I would probably choose an owl. Even though I love cats I think owls are awesome and would be handy as!

giphy (1)

Where did the sorting hat put me?

pm-pride-Gryffindor-Twitter-Header-Image-1500-x-500-px

What house did I want to be in?

I always thought I would be Gryffindor and I was very okay with that!

What lessons are my favourite and least favourite?

Favourites:
Care of Magical Creatures – I love animals and my favourite class in school was Ag and this is the magical equivalent!
Charms – This is the basic kinda spells so I think this would be important and who doesn’t want to make things fly!
Potions – Not with Snape as a teacher though as it seems like he actually doesn’t care about his students, he just expects everyone to be shit so doesn’t actually try and properly teach them and I can’t stand that.
Transfiguration – Who doesn’t want to learn how to turn a desk into a pig?! This is also a really handy skill if you are in a pinch and need something.
History of Magic – if it had a different teacher that was actually engaging! I love learning about history but how do they expect anyone to pass this class if everyone is asleep or zoned out!
Astronomy – I love looking at stars and I would love to learn more about them. In school, we only learnt a little about the planets in science class but I have always been curious.

Least Favourite:
Herbology – I have never really been into gardening or anything as I’m more of an animal person so I don’t think I would love this subject. I think learning about some of the plants would be a bit interesting though.
Muggle studies – I don’t honestly see the point of this subject but if you were a pure blood or a half-blood that was raised mainly in the wizarding world then I think it would be interesting. But I would definitely not be an Arthur Weasley.
Ancient Runes – And this is mainly here because I don’t fully know what it is or understand what you actually learn.
Divination – I’ll pass!

The form my Patronus takes:

Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 9.36.48 pm

I don’t really like the Patronus quiz thing. I have done this test about 4 times and obviously got all different things as I’m pretty sure it’s completely random as I’m pretty sure I answered the tests the exact same at least 3 of the times. And I remember getting a Mastiff dog the first time, which is honestly a dog breed I do not like and then I got I a different bird which I had never even heard of and when I looked it up it was a bird not found in Aus, so of course I didn’t know it. Then I got something else that I don’t remember and then I got the Sparrow. At least I know what a sparrow is but I still don’t think this test is that great.
On the Expecto Patronus info page, it says that the Patronus is usually something that is common where you live and that is why cats, dogs & horses are the most common. But that was not the case at all in any of choices I got as I have never even seen a mastiff in person I don’t think and Sparrows are kinda rare to see where I live, you only see them occasionally.

What does a boggart look like to me?

Okay so I honestly do not know any of my fears so I have no clue what my Patronus would be. I obviously have a fear I guess but I haven’t experienced it yet to actually know it.

Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?

I would definitely give Quidditch a go, I don’t think I would be good at it as I don’t have the best hand eye coordination. I would probably collect Chocolate Frog cards! I would also give Wizards chess a go too. I haven’t played chess a tonne so I’m not that great but I think it would be fun.

Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?

Near the lake, of course, sitting near the lake reading would be awesome! Or just chillen in the common room near the fire in the comfy lounges in winter.

What would I most likely get detention for?

Probably ‘talking back’ to the teacher or talking in class..! Oh and probably sneaking to the kitchens in the middle of the night!

What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?

Auror would be cool but I’m going to go with something to do with animals as I would love to work with animals!
I did a quiz on BuzzFeed, which you can find HERE and it said I should be a Wandmaker, which would be interesting! I think wand making is a little understated but you would get to go on awesome adventures to harvest the wood from wand trees and collect the cores for the wands!



And that is all! I’m going to take a few people, not my most recent followers like I do on my normal Tag Sunday.  But if you want to do this tag then feel free!!!! I tag EVERYBODY!!!!

I tag: Bree @ In Love and Words // Maya @ Fire-Breathing Book Dragon // Destiny @ Howling Libraries // Stephanie @ TeacherOfYA
