How well do I know my books?

I should be writing my May wrap-up, but when I came across this challenge on Booksandlala’s channel, I knew I had to do it! It’s a really fun video! So, today I’ll be answering questions about my books. How well do I really know them? At the moment, my collection consists of 86 novels. I’ll be using a random number generator to pick between them and then count along my shelves. Let’s do this! Continue reading

If I could only keep 30 books…

Hey, how are you? I hope you’re having a great day. If you follow the book community a bit, you might have noticed the controversy around Marie Kondo a while back. I believe she said in her new Netflix show ‘Tidying Up with Marie Kondo’ that people should reflect on the books they own and only keep those that spark joy. If a hundred spark joy, then keep a hundred. If it’s two, then keep two. You get the gist. I think it’s a lovely idea. I also try to be selective of the books I have in my collection. She also said that for her personally 30 books was the right amount to keep. That’s where the controversy started as some people thought she meant everyone should get rid of all their books but thirty. Anyway, this post isn’t about the controversy. However, that number of thirty books got me thinking; what if I only kept thirty books? Continue reading

Welcome to Andover… where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef-up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship—only it turns out to be for the town’s most heinous supervillain. On the upside, she gets to work with her longtime secret crush, Abby, who Jess thinks may have a secret of her own. Then there’s the budding attraction to her fellow intern, the mysterious “M,” who never seems to be in the same place as Abby. But what starts as a fun way to spite her superhero parents takes a sudden and dangerous turn when she uncovers a plot larger than heroes and villains altogether.

Re-read, Re-write, Burn with my favourite books!

Hey everyone! Today I’m doing something fun. I’ve seen a lot of people do a Re-read, Re-write or Burn post and I think they’re really fun. To spice it up, I’m going to attempt it with my favourite books from the last couple of years. The idea I got from a video Merphy Napier did not so long ago. I’ve written down every book I gave five stars on Goodreads when I read them. I did leave out some books I’ve totally fallen out of love with. I’m blindly picking three books in each round and then I decide what I want to do. So without further ado, let’s get into it! I have a feeling this is going to be a wild ride!
