Herding Cats by Sarah Anderson – Review

I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way influenced my opinion. 

Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles, #3)This book was quite simply adorable. The drawings were hilariously relatable and I found myself laughing out loud at several of the pages. There were many times where I thought to myself ‘Thank God I’m not the only person who does that!’. Overall they were a joy to read and I thoroughly enjoyed them.

The book also had a small section at the end which contained more text than drawings, where Sarah gave advice to newer artists. As I’m not an artist myself, I didn’t relate as much to this section, but her message still spoke to me. I found her comments about the internet really thought provoking and her general encouragement to new artists to not be afraid to put themselves out there was lovely to read. She also had a few tips on how to deal with things like criticism, which I think can be applied to anyone, artist or not.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a fast, funny, and relatable read. I’d highly recommend it!


Favourite books of 2017

2017 was a bit of a crazy year. I found it really hard to balance reading with all of the other things I wanted to do, like university work and spending time with friends and family. I only managed to read 25 books (hopefully I will finish the 26th before the end of the year!), but I’m still really proud of this number. I managed to read 25 whole books whilst also finishing my first year and starting my second year of my Pharmacy degree. I had deadlines every few weeks and a mountain of work to do and I’ve struggled so much through this last semester. But I found comfort in the books that I read. They were a much needed distraction when uni stress got too much for me. And although I didn’t have the time to read every single day, I really loved the books that I did read, and that is the most important thing to me.

These are my favourite books that I read in 2017:

A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J MaaA Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

The ACOTAR series is a new all time favourite of mine. I just loved the world and the characters so much! The character development in this one was done so well and made the novel a joy to read. I loved it so much that as soon as I finished reading it I flipped back to the beginning and started it again, which is something that I’ve never done!

A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J MaasA Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3)

This book was the perfect conclusion to a phenomenal trilogy. I was a blurry eyed mess throughout reading most of this novel and I struggled to put it down. This one was a lot more plot driven than A Court of Mist and Fury, which was exciting and really picked up the pace. I love this world so much and I can’t wait to see what Sarah J Maas does with it when she releases her novella next year!

Seige and Storm – Leigh BardugoSiege and Storm (Grisha Verse, #2)

This was my favourite book of the Grisha trilogy, another series which I thoroughly enjoyed this year! My favourite character was introduced in this book and I loved the character development that ensued. The world is so interesting and I can’t wait to revisit it in Leigh Bardugo’s other series Six of Crows, which I’m hoping to get to in 2018!

We Were Liars – E LockhartWe Were Liars

This book was just so insanely clever and it really hit me hard. The writing style was so unique and for most of the book I had no clue what direction E Lockhart was taking me in. I had so many wild theories and they were all so wrong! I didn’t see the ending coming, it shocked me and broke me and I was just in awe of the author’s ability to pull it off. This book was truly phenomenal.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)Illuminae – Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This book was unlike anything I’d ever read before. It was told in documents, emails, and files and I was worried I would find it hard to follow the story, however that wasn’t the case at all and I think the style worked so well! It made the story a lot more fast paced and I didn’t want to put the book down. I also don’t often read sci-fi, but this book blew me away and I can’t wait to continue with the series!


What were your favourite books of the year?

Thanks for reading!

Siege and Storm – Leigh Bardugo (SPOILERS!)

17415685._UY200_Siege and Storm is the second book in the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I really enjoyed the first book so I was very excited to pick up the second, and I wasn’t disappointed. I loved it!

My favourite thing about this book was the protagonist, Alina’s, character development. I think Alina came a long way in the first book, but in Siege and Storm she developed even further into a strong, badass lady. I loved seeing her take charge of the second army and gain the confidence to become a powerful leader. She spoke her mind and really accepted and became the sun summoner.

I really loved the new characters that were introduced. Nikolai (aka Sturmhond in the beginning) has become my favourite character in the series. To start with, I didn’t trust him at all and even now I’m unsure whether he is trustworthy. But I really loved his charm, his quirky personality, and how he fought for what he believed in and what he wanted even if the fight would be long and arduous. Tolya and Tamar were also very interesting characters. I loved how strong and badass they were and their back story was very interesting. I loved the twist at the end that they had been working with the Apparat the whole time. I didn’t see that coming at all.

Mal annoyed me in this book. He became really whiney and unsupportive of Alina. At the same time it bothered me when Alina started hiding things from him. This is something I see way too often in YA novels and I find it really annoying to read about. If Alina was just honest with Mal about how she was feeling and what was happening to her with her visions of the Darkling etc then a lot of problems would be solved or not even started in the first place.

I really liked the political aspects of this book and how we saw the meetings where Alina and Nikolai tried to get things done. It was interesting to understand more of how the political system in Ravka works. The pirate aspect at the start of the book was really fun to read about and that battle at the end with the Darkling was incredible.

Overall I really enjoyed Siege and Storm. It was a really strong second book of a trilogy and I think I even enjoyed it more than the first! I can’t wait to read Ruin and Rising and see where this story goes!

The Hobbit Book Review (spoiler free!)

I finally did it! I finished The Hobbit! I am so proud of myself for finally finishing this book!

photo_5653_0-8I started reading The Hobbit a few years ago and got a few chapters in before I gave up and abandoned it to my bookshelf to collect dust. I decided on a whim to pick it back up and give it another chance, and I’m very glad I did!

I really enjoyed this story and I can completely understand why J.R.R Tolkien is such a beloved writer. I loved how everything he included in the plot was really well thought out and became more important later on. I fell in love with Bilbo Baggins, his character was so charming and I loved his development from a humble hobbit at the beginning to a hero by the end.

The world was truly fascinating. Having never read or watched Lord of the Rings I had no clue what to expect of this world before going into The Hobbit. Tolkien’s descriptions were so detailed and there were so many quirky little aspects of the world which were really fun to read.

That being said, the middle part of this book really dragged for me. Things were happening in the plot but at the same time I felt like nothing was happening. The descriptions were so long and detailed that at times it felt like a chore to read them. I think I’m more used to reading books with more dialogue and shorter descriptions which is probably why I had trouble staying focussed. And when I put the book down, I didn’t feel the urge to pick it back up and carry on reading, like I usually do with a book that I’m loving. However, the story did pick up again for me more towards the end and I really loved the last few chapters.

Overall, I’m really glad that I read The Hobbit. I really loved the world and the characters. There were parts that dragged and bored me a little but the ending was definitely worth it for me.


May 2017 TBR

I can’t believe it is May already – 2017 is going by so fast!¬†I’m not sure how much reading I’ll be able to get done – I have exams at the end of the month and I’ve been majorly procrastinating from studying recently so I really need to focus on them. But I will definitely be reading in my revision breaks so hopefully I’ll be able to get through a couple of books.

1. A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J. Maas

23766634This is the 3rd book in Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I believe it is the final installment following this set of characters. ¬†It will be released on May 2nd and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! I will definitely be reading this book as soon as my pre-order arrives. I can barely contain my excitement! I love this cast of characters so much and the world is incredible! I won’t say anything about the synopsis to avoid spoilers, but if you haven’t already, you need to pick this series up! Yes I will abandon my responsibilities to read this book ASAP and yes, it will be worth it. Who needs a degree anyway? I just need a Rhysand… ūüėČ

2. When Dimple Met Rishi – Sandhya Menon

28458598I received a copy of this book from NetGalley to review, and I am super excited about it! I’ve been highly anticipating it’s release ever since I first heard about it, so I’m beyond happy to get the opportunity to read it early! This story follows two Indian-American teenagers who’s parents have arranged to be married. The premise sounds super cute, fun and unlike any other YA contemporary I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to pick it up!

3. Goodbye days – Jeff Zentner

31575528This is another book which I received from NetGalley to review. From the premise, this book sounds very heavy and emotional so I don’t imagine it will be an easy read. The story follows a boy named Carter Briggs who loses his three best friends in a care accident, which he blames himself for. I’m intrigued to find out how the author handles this difficult subject and I think this has the potential to be a very impactful and important read.

So those are the three books that I’m planning on reading this month. I would love to know which books are on your TBR for May.

Thanks for reading!

April 2017 Wrap Up

April has been a pretty weird reading month for me. I completely and utterly failed to stick to my TBR this month. I didn’t pick up a single book that was on it. But I do have an excuse – I read A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas this month. I didn’t anticipate that it would have such a huge effect on me, but I loved it so much that I couldn’t bring myself to pick up another book for a long while as, in my mind, nothing could possibly live up to it. Therefore my reading has been a little bit limited this month…

A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas

23766623Like I mentioned above, the first book I read this month was A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOMAF) by Sarah J. Maas and it was incredible. You can read my review (which contains spoilers!) here. It is a new favourite book for me and I’m so mad that it took me so long to start reading this series because it’s truly phenomenal – although I am happy that I don’t have to wait too long for the next book (A Court of Wings and Ruin) to be released! ACOMAF is the second book in Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series which is set in a world with faeries, with the first book being based off of Beauty and the Beast.¬†Sarah is such an incredible writer. Her characters and world building is extraordinary. Reading ACOMAF was like being swept away to another world. I had so much fun reading this book, and it really reminded me of why I love reading. If you haven’t already picked this book or series up, I would definitely recommend it!

A Court of Mist and Fury (again!)

I loved ACOMAF so much the first time around that I just had to flip back to the first page and immediately begin reading it again! I couldn’t help myself. My fangirling over this book has reached a whole new level.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard – J.K. Rowling

3950967This¬†was another reread for me. I picked up The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling from my bookshelf on a complete whim and began reading it. I finished the whole book in a few hours and I had such a great time while doing so. It’s been so long since I read this companion to the Harry Potter series so I didn’t remember the stories very well at all. It was really fun to rediscover these magic-filled fairytales and I loved that the book contained notes from Dumbledore on each story as these were really interesting to read. This was such a fun little book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are a Harry Potter fan and haven’t yet picked it up, I would highly recommend it.

Overall, whilst my reading this month might not have been the most productive, I did have a lot of fun with the books that I read, which in my opinion, is the most important thing! I discovered a new favourite (which has got to be the best feeling!) and really enjoyed rereading a book from my childhood.

I would love to know what books you read this month!

Thank you so much for reading!

A Court Of Mist And Fury – Review (SPOILERS!!)

23766623Wow. How do I even begin to review this book? It was phenomenal, truly phenomenal. It’s probably a new all time favourite of mine – and I don’t take picking favourites lightly. When I finished reading it, I immediately picked it back up again to re-read. I just couldn’t bring myself to leave this incredible world and this extraordinary cast of characters who I have fallen in love with.¬†There are no words that I can write here which could even begin to do this book justice, so if you haven’t already, you NEED to pick this series up!

ACOMAF is the 2nd book in Sarah J. Maas’ ACOTAR trilogy. I think it’s very rare to love a second book more than the first one (especially in a trilogy), but Sarah has blown me away and I don’t think I’ve ever read a stronger second book. There will be lots of spoilers and extensive fangirling below, so proceed with caution!

In the beginning, we see Feyre trying to adjust to life at the spring court with Tamlin, but she is haunted with nightmares of her time under the mountain, and guilt over the innocent lives she was forced to take. I think the portrayal of Feyre’s anxiety and panic attacks was done very well. It felt very real to me and I’m glad that we really saw her struggling with this and it wasn’t just glossed over or mentioned maybe once and then ignored. It was dealt with really well and made the situation feel very realistic, as it took a long time for Feyre to start to recover from her experience and¬†to come to terms with her guilt.I think Sarah deserves praise for how well she handled this aspect of the story.

I began to really hate Tamlin at the beginning of this novel. Feyre was waking up in the middle of the night and being sick because of her nightmares, and Tamlin would just ignore her and pretend to be asleep. He never even acknowledged that she was struggling, apart from one time when he used it against her in an argument, when she wanted to leave the house. Tamlin’s behaviour was so shocking to me, even more so the second time that I read those scenes. It was difficult to read. It was an abusive relationship¬†and it really scared me because, looking back, the signs were there in the first book. Feyre was scared of his powers, and that scene under the mountain where he used his one opportunity to get her out and safe to try and have sex with her instead. As a reader, I was just as blind as Feyre was to how unhealthy their relationship was, and it was truly chilling to realise this.¬†I was beyond relieved when Mor came to the spring court to rescue Feyre after Tamlin trapped her in the house, and I loved that Alis didn’t put up a fight, because she knew that Feyre deserved better. That made me love Alis even more.

I loved how Sarah handled Feyre and Rhys’ relationship in ACOMAF.¬†It would have been so easy for her to make it a love triangle and I’m beyond happy that she didn’t. Love triangles are not at all realistic, in my opinion. It was really great how¬†Feyre had a relationship with Tamlin that didn’t work out, left him and took time to get over that break up, before starting to develop and pursue her feelings for Rhys. It was just so real and relatable and I don’t think I’ve ever seen it done in a book – which is just ridiculous! I think most people have more than one great love in their lives, and I’m so happy with the way this was shown in ACOMAF.

I loved Rhys’ inner circle so much! It was so much fun to get to know them all and learn about their backstories. They are so precious and if anything happens to them in the next book¬†I will be heartbroken! Mor was probably my favourite member of the inner circle and I’m so intrigued about what her powers are. I really hope we get to see them in the next book! Mor’s backstory was so tragic but it made me love her character so much more, because she has been through so much but she still puts a smile on her face and carries on living – I think that is truly inspirational. Amren is so mysterious, powerful and a little creepy but I love her! I loved the scene after her and Feyre steal the book from the summer court and after almost dying in the process, they just dissolve into a fit of giggles together.¬†I’m so curious about what Amren’s true form is (I really want her to be some sort of dragon…). I loved seeing Cassian’s friendship with Feyre. Their banter was hilarious but he was also really caring towards her. And I felt so sorry for Azriel. I just want him to be with Mor and to be happy! Azriel and Cassian’s friendship was incredible as well – the way Cassian sacrificed his wings to shield Azriel… I can’t even talk about it, it’s too emotional!

I loved getting to see the night court and learning the truth about Velaris. If I was a fae in Prythian I would definitely want to live in Velaris. The descriptions were just absolutely beautiful. I loved learning about the backstory of the night court and how Rhys sacrificed so much in order to keep Velaris and his friends safe from Amarantha. It was so interesting to find out that his whole personality in ACOTAR had been an act in order to protect the people he loved. Rhys is just so precious! I completely fell in love with him in this book. One of my favourite things is when an author can make you completely alter your feelings for a character Рlike when you hated them to begin with but by the end you absolutely love them Рand Sarah J. Maas definitely achieved this with Rhys.

It was so interesting to see the differences in faerie politics between the night court and spring court. Even though he is the high lord, Rhys treats his people like equals and his relationship with the inner circle is brilliant. They’re all truly his friends and I love how much he loves them. Whereas in the spring court, Tamlin always asserts his dominance as the high lord. Even Lucien doesn’t dare to cross him or speak his mind sometimes, which is so sad. And the way Tamlin holds the tithe every year, demanding things from members of his court even when some of them are unable to feed themselves, it was just horrible. It really highlighted the differences between the two characters.

I loved how Rhys treated Feyre. He never treated her as anything less than his equal. He always lets her choose and¬†never tries to stop her from doing things in order to ‘protect her’ or because it’s ‘too dangerous’.¬†We need more male characters like Rhys. He knows exactly what she’s capable of and trusts that she can look after herself,¬†because she clearly can. We need more of these healthy relationships that are built on mutual respect and trust in books.

The tension between Rhys and Feyre in the middle of this book killed me!¬†There was so much flirting and I wanted to scream at them to just be together already! It was so cute to watch their relationship develop though and I love that it took time and didn’t just happen. Again, I think this is very realistic, especially considering Feyre’s recent situation with Tamlin. It was handled really well and it didn’t feel forced at all.

And then of course, Feyre finds out about Rhys being her mate. I loved her reaction and how she¬†took the time she needed away from him to sort out her feelings. Again, this made it feel so real. I loved that Mor had her back and took her to a safe place so she could have the space she needed. And I thought it was so beautiful that while she was there, she finally started to paint again. And when Rhys came to the house and told her the truth about everything – wow that scene! We got answers to questions I didn’t even realise we needed answers to. It was so obvious that Sarah had everything planned out from the beginning of ACOTAR,¬†because after Rhys’ explanations everything makes so much sense. It was literally flawless. And when he finishes talking and Feyre just gives him the soup – I was fangirling so hard!!

I knew it was a bad idea for Rhys to show the queens the truth about Velaris. It was so heartbreaking to see that beautiful city being attacked and¬†destroyed. But I did love how badass Feyre was in that scene. She stood her ground and didn’t just go back to the house like Cassian told her to. She wanted to fight and protect the city that she loved – and she did. I’m so proud of how she’s grown as a character!

And then we go to Hybern. So much happened in those last few pages,¬†it was crazy! I was crying throughout the whole thing and I couldn’t tear my eyes from the page. I was terrified for what was going to happen to Feyre, Rhys and the inner circle! And then when Tamlin and Lucien showed up – I was sooo mad at Tamlin!! I can’t believe he did that! Yes he was an idiot and a horrible partner for Feyre but I was so shocked to find out that he would work with the King of Hybern. And I can’t believe that even though he could¬†see how Rhys and Feyre are mates and that they clearly love each other, he still thinks he¬†has some sort of claim on her and that she belongs to him!? It’s so infuriating. If I didn’t hate him before, I definitely did then.

I can’t believe Nesta and Elain are now fae! There are so many possibilities with what could happen there. I loved how Elain is Lucien’s mate (plus that gives Feyre some leverage in the spring court) and I am a strong believer that Nesta is Cassian’s mate as well – I’m hoping that this is confirmed (and that his wings heal!!) in ACOWAR.

When Feyre was telling the King of Hybern to break the mating bond between her and Rhys I was literally shouting ‘No no no no no no!!!’¬†at the book – I was distraught!¬†But then when we found out what really happened and that¬†FEYRE IS THE HIGH LADY OF THE NIGHT COURT I was so relieved!!! Thank God that Feyre and Rhys knew what they were doing.¬†Mor’s reaction to Feyre being taken back to the¬†spring court was priceless – I love her! And the last line of the book – wow I had goosebumps. It was incredible.

So overall, this book was amazing! It was unlike anything I’ve ever read before and it completely and utterly blew me away. Wow.¬†Sarah J Maas is a genius and I can’t wait until ACOWAR is released on May 2nd!

Thank you so much for reading! I’d love to know what you thought of ACOMAF if you’ve read it.

Top 10 Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is the top ten things that will make you instantly want to read a book.

1. A pretty cover

Okay, so I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but I have to admit that if there’s a book I’m interested in and it also has a beautiful cover, I will be ten times more likely to pick it up sooner rather than later.

2. If I’ve seen people raving about it on booktube

Booktube is a very dangerous place. One minute you’re binge-watching book hauls and reviews and the next, you’ve added approximately 20 books to your basket on Amazon and are clicking ‘place order now.’ If I see my favourite booktubers raving ¬†about a book, it’s almost guaranteed that I’m going to pick it up as soon as possible.

3. If it’s blurbed by an author/someone I love

If a book has a really positive comment on the cover from an author or someone else that I really admire, I will be way more likely to pick it up,  because I trust their opinions.

4. If it was recommended by one of my friends

I have a couple of friends who love reading just as much as I do, and we tend to read and love very similar things. So if one of my bookish friends recommends something to me that they really loved and are excited about, I’m 100% going to want to read it!

5. When a book is described as being similar to Harry Potter

Okay, so I’ll admit that the amount of books that are marketed as ‘The next Harry Potter’ or ‘For fans of Harry Potter’ can get exhausting, but my inner Potterhead can’t say no to them. I can’t help it. I just crave stories about magic that make me feel nostalgic for being a kid growing up with Harry Potter. So anything that is advertised in this way is pretty much an auto-buy for me.

6. If it’s written by an author who I love

There are certain authors who I love so much I will read anything that they publish – they could publish their shopping lists and I would still throw my money at them. So if I see that one of my favourite authors has a new book coming out, I will immediately pick it up – no questions asked.

7. If it has a high rating on Goodreads

Goodreads is not always the best place to get book recommendations and their ratings aren’t always reliable, what with people rating books before they’re released (or even written in some cases) and everyone’s different interpretations of the star rating system. But if a book has a particularly high average rating on goodreads, it will definitely make me want to read it, as it suggests that lots of other people have really enjoyed it.

8. If there are fantastical/magical elements

Fantasy is my favourite genre and I love stories with magic. It’s probably my favourite thing to read about as I love being whisked away to a whole different world where so many crazy things are possible. It just makes me so happy. So if a book is fantasy and contains an interesting magic system, I’m more likely to add it to the top of my TBR list.

9. A strong female lead

The strong female lead is a very common trope in YA books, and I know a lot of people think it’s overdone, but I still really love it. It’s one of my favourite perspectives and I find it so empowering to read about such strong, independent female characters. If a book features this trope, I’m almost definitely going to want to read it.

10. If it handles subject matter that isn’t often seen in books such as ‘taboo’ topics

If a book is said to handle a difficult topic or one that isn’t usually discussed, I will be super interested in picking it up. I find it intriguing to see how the author handles the subject and if the topic is something I don’t know much about,¬†I’m even more interested because I want to learn more about it.

So those are the top 10 things that make me want to instantly read a book. I really enjoyed making this list! I had so much fun thinking about all the things that intrigue me about a book and make me really want to pick it up.

What things make you want to instantly read a book?

Thank you so much for reading!

SNEAK PEEK Alex and Eliza: A Love Story – Review (Spoiler Free)

I received a free sneak peek of Alex and Eliza: A Love Story from NetGalley. This in no way influenced my opinion.

32860355As a huge Hamilton fan, I have been looking forward to this novel for a long time, so I was so exited to get to read this sneak peek, containing the first four chapters of Melissa de la Cruz’s new novel about the romance between Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler. In the first few chapters, we get to see the Schuyler sisters preparing for the ball, Alex preparing to bring bad news to General Schuyler and the first meeting between the three Schuyler sisters and Alex.

I really enjoyed reading about the characters and I think Melissa really added an extra layer to them.¬†I loved how snarky Alex was and seeing him struggling to impress the Schuyler sisters was entertaining. I loved how Eliza was portrayed as being super patriotic and how she really stood up for herself and what she believed in¬†to her mother. I loved Angelica’s wittiness when she met Alex, it was so fun to read.¬†The first few chapters really made me fall even more in love than I already was with these people and I can’t wait to read more of Melissa’s interpretation of them.

I thought it was really great how you didn’t necessarily have to have seen or listened to Hamilton to understand what was going on.¬†It was set up just like any other novel and the characters and setting was all explained well. I also loved how it included things which Hamilton, being a musical, had to leave out, making it really interesting to read if you are¬†a Hamilton fan, because it’s more than just a repetition of a story we already know. It definitely caters for everyone!

However I did think that the first few chapters had a lot of info-dumping, and there was a lot of telling rather than showing which made it quite slow. I get that it was necessary to give the novel some historical context at the beginning, so maybe this improves with the rest of the novel. But I do think it would have worked better by weaving the historical context into the story more, and showing things to the reader through character’s actions and dialogue rather than just giving us loads of information all in one go.

Nevertheless, I still really enjoyed reading the first few chapters of this novel, and I can’t wait to pick up the full version¬†which is out now!

Thank you for reading!
