Pastry Book Tag!

Bookwormaniac¬†created (I think) this tag, and I saw it on Readwatchreviewblog and decided to tag myself because I thought it looks fun, even though my coeliac’s disease means that I have absolutely no idea what most of these taste like (except macarons which are usually gluten free! Whoo!). And I haven’t done a tag in forever. So, let’s start shall we? Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves.   A Court of Thorns and Roses. Tumblr is all about this series right now, and with good reason. It’s just so awesome. All of tumblr can’t be wrong. Easy. Next!   Macaron: Name a book that was hard to get through but worth it at the end. How are macarons easy to get through? they are so tiny and delicate. Anyway, although gone girl was incredibly addictive and I read it in no time, it was difficult for me as I actually know an Amy Dunn, and I’m still traumatised from my encounter with her. So terrifying. If you think Amy …

Best Books of 2015 (if I do say so myself)

Welcome everyone to 2016! It’s time to set a new TBR and a new Goodreads challenge to fail! Yay! But first, I’m going to share with you my favourite books I read in 2015. I’ve raved about pretty much all of these books before, so I’m not going to make a big speech about why each book is awesome and why you should read it. I will just link my review for each.

July Book Haul – Part One

Um… So I bought quite a few books this month, and this is only Part One. I have more on the way! That is a lot of books, and yes that is a Kindle in there too. That was added to my collection just yesterday. This is absolute proof that I have zero self-control. Most of these are books that I’ve read before but didn’t own. The newbies that are to be read are: The Troop, The Wrath of the Dawn, The Darkest Part of the Forest, The Phantom of the Opera, and Looking for Alaska. I also received The Looking Glass House and Where the Stars Still Shine from Bloomsbury. And I received a hardcover copy of The Other Side of Eve from the Author, Paul Ikin after I bought the Kindle copy and was really enjoying it. I’m currently reading it at the moment and it’s right up my alley. I also got myself a Kindle Voyage as well. After a week of planning with a dear, dear friend in the US who …
