November Wrap Up

November Wrap UpOh my gosh! It has been forever since I posted anything! I did write some things, but my schedule keeps moving up and it’s never really working out. I’m going the best I can to go back to my regular schedule, but taking photos has been such a challenge that I keep rescheduling… After some proper rest after a busy weekend at the Best of YA Sleepover, it’s my first priority. Anyway, I’ve finally managed to free some time to read!

The Shadowhunter’s Codex by Cassandra Clare & Joshua Lewis

The Shadowhunter's Codex

The Shadowhunter’s Codex is a companion to the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare and I read it months ago. Then I went on a break and never finished my review… Aaaanyway, the book doesn’t really have a plot like the other Shadowhunter books because it’s quite literally a fictional study guide. The Codex has information on anything mentioned in the Shadowhunter books, from laws, to history, to runes! It’s a must read for any massive Shadowhunter fan, but it’s not necessary  to understand the plot of the series. I wanted to read it because it’s mentioned in most of the books and I was just super interested!

Behind the Books: October

Behind the Books OctoberWhew… Can you believe it’s October already? Also, can you believe were halfway through the month? I woke up on Sunday morning thinking “Oh hey, I’m sure it’s like the fourteenth or something, let’s write my Behind the Books post!” But then I checked my phone and came to the shocking conclusion it was the sixteenth! If you’ve been following my blog, you know it’s quite dead-ish lately. Even my Twitter is dead! I’ll explain everything in this post!

September Wrap Up

September wrap upWell… This is probably the most difficult and weird-ish wrap up ever. Let me tell you a story: when I started doing wrap ups, I used to start the wrap up post as soon as I finished the first book of the month. Then the rollercoaster called “life” happened and I’ve barely done anything for the blog. I didn’t even know what books I read this month without checking Goodreads… Yeah, it’s that bad. Aaaanyway, here’s the books I read in September! Spoiler alert: It’s very different from my September TBR and it’s probably the least I’ve read since I started blogging in May. Read more

Behind the Books: September

Behind the Books SeptemberBefore I continue with my monthly personal update, I have some important-ish news to tell you guys! I’m taking a little break. You might have noticed how there was no Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday, and how my posts don’t show up on social media anymore. I explain it all in this post, but I felt like I needed to get this out of the way first. Now let’s move on to more fun stuff, like all the great stuff that has happened to me over the past month. Read all about it in my new Behind the Books post!

A Court of Thorns & Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns & Roses is book one in Sarah J. Maas' new series. It follows Feyre, a human who kills a wolf & ends up in the land of Faerie. I don’t really have favourites, not when it comes to music, or TV shows, and definitely not when it comes to books. But then I read the Throne of Glass series over the summer, and I fell so in love with Sarah J. Maas’ writing, that I just had to read more! And of course, everyone was raging over the A Court of Thorns & Roses series. Lucky for me, I finally had a chance to pick them up!

How I Style My Bookish Photos

Photography StylingA while ago I wrote a piece on how I take my bookish photos and asked you guys if you’d like to see more bookish photography on the blog. Victoria from Prose & Visions was interested in how I style my photos, and since it’s one of my favourite things to do, why not share some tips and tricks?! I’m not a professional in any way, I’m just really passionate about photography and styling and I love to share that passion!  Read more

A Guide to The Shadowhunter Chronicles: A Summary
