I’m so excited for this!!
I’ve been staying at home for months now – only going out for walks pretty much. I’m super happy for this – especially as I’m going back to school soon, so I won’t be staying at home. This is kinda my last chance to do it… I may as well make the most of it!!
I hope you are all doing well at home!! And it’s pretty much an open nomination, so if you think of some great answers to the questions, post it! And yes, I have been doing a couple of tags recently… hopefully they will cease soon and I will have some more exciting stuff happening?
- Thank the person who nominated you – May @ Forever And Everly left an open nomination so thank you!

what are you currently reading?
I’ve been not reading anything recently?? The last book I finished was Love From A-Z on audio – a really cute romcom that is also such an important read?? It talks about Islamophobia but also finding your one true love so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ go ahead and read it!!!
I feel like everyone is reading so much in quarantine and I’m… not. However, I do have a LOT of rereads for Pride planned for June so hopefully I can get into them soon!!
what’s your favourite can’t-leave-the-house activity?
Getting to stay in bed sleeping until half an hour before school starts!!! I love it!!!
No but for real the thing I’ve probably been doing the most is either online school or blogging? I have seven posts scheduled and I’ve basically written all my June content which is insane but I’m really proud!! (also I think the main reason I’ve been doing it is because I want nothing to do with the new editor that’s being forced upon us in a few days and I want to put off using it for as long as possible!!!)
I’ve also been watching Brooklyn 99 for the first time with my family and it’s hilarious!!! (We watched Die Hard the other night as a result of said show and wOW it was action packed and tense!!!) I just love all the characters so much and it can be kinda predictable but I still love it!!!
a book you’ve been meaning to read forever?
I’ve heard so many good things about Anna Marie McLemore’s books and I’m desperate to read some!! I’ve found When The Moon Was Ours – is it good?? The one I’m really wanting is Wild Beauty which just sounds so beautifully proud and unapologetic.
I also want to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which seems like an excellent read!! I’ve seen so many raving reviews about it and I would LOVE to read it!!!
an intimidating book on your tbr?
I am so scared of Strange the Dreamer, Song of Achilles, and The City of Brass because they’re all MASSIVE. I’ve seen so much praise for all of them though so I do WANT to read them….. I’m just scared!
Is it worth the pain? Should I try and suffer through? Will I actually like them????
top three priority books on your tbr?
I am desperate to get to The Henna Wars!!! I think I’ll really love it and I am struggling through the wait ❤ It sounds so good and it has so many things I like in books: enemies to lovers, f/f, sibling relationships…. I could go on.
One that hasn’t come out YET but is still a top priority on my TBR is Darius the Great Deserves Better – sequel to my favourite, Darius the Great is Not Okay. I love love love his story so much and this sounds so good!!
Another that isn’t released yet is The Nobleman’s Guide To Scandals and Shipwrecks which is in the Montague Siblings trilogy!! Adrian – the long lost brother who’s kind of a replacement for Monty and Felicity – goes searching to convince the two siblings to come back. Chaos is sure to ensue.
Also I know I’ve already talked about these as ones I’m highly anticipating but I don’t care!!! I’m too enthusiastic about them!!!
recommend a short book?
Since I can’t stop talking/thinking about it I’ll say The Foxhole Court (even though I 100% should NOT recommend it I mostly read medium sized books??) – it’s 230 pages… which I could’ve probably gotten through in an afternoon if I hadn’t read the audio?? TRK (in AFTG series) I read in a day, and then The King’s Men I read at night and then a couple chapters in the morning soooo….
You could get through that series in three days and never recover like me, is what I’m saying. I turned out fine after!!!! (She says as she constantly daydreams about the Foxes and basically, has not recovered and is 100% not fine.)
Also! It’s free on iBooks – something I only discovered after reading on Scribd – and then the second two books are like $2 so financially it is an excellent decision 😉 (also if you’re going to read it let me know cause I’m so tempted to reread it so not only would you find the next best book you’ve read, you would also be encouraging me to follow my dreams!!!)
There is so much wrong with the books, but if you can, read them and scream with me!! I am not okay!! (If you are going to read it, please know that there are some problematic parts in most of the book – and proceed with caution)
recommend a long book?
I am normally scared of long books so much!! I don’t tend to read too many…
I guess Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom are pretty long – 496 and 546 respectively. And we all know how much I love those so…. that?
10/10 love that duology and trust me, it is worth the 500 pages. (Is that even counted as long??)
something you’d love to do while stuck at home?
I wish I was reading more – especially audiobooks – but unfortunately not!! I think it’s because I haven’t had anything to read but I’m building up for next month I guess?
For something non-bookish, I’d love to be taking longer walks I think. At the moment I’m clocking in at about 4km (!!!) a day but I do the same loop and I’ve been wanting to extend it a little I think!!! I just started doing a circuit with my mum as well recently which has been fun-ish? It’s a core workout and it’s not super amazing but I’m getting better!!
what do you plan on reading next?
I’m planning to reread Ari and Dante on the 1st of June!! Even though I only reread it at the end of March I’m desperate to cry again so thanks Lu for the encouragement!!!
After that my entire month of June is planned to be Pride rereads so this should be fun!! (I’m also rereading TFC in July because SOMEONE keeps tempting me to)
who do you tag?
Okay this wasn’t really a question but it made it an even 10 so I’m saying it like this!!! Whoever wants to really – I’m horrible at tagging people!! – but to carry on the five people tradition I’ll say Ash @ Starlight Strands, Memo @ Memo4Books, Paradeabelle @ Rhymes With Paradeabelle, Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea, and Lu @ It’s Lu Again!! Anybody else who wants to though let me know and I’ll add you to the list :)))
have you done this tag? would you recommend when the moon was ours? should i try and get to the massive books i’m scared of? if you blog on wordpress, are you dreading the new editor as well? any themes/tropes you love in books?
ALSO! hi! if you’re here and reading this, the last question may seem a little odd – but please try and let me know a theme/s or trope/s you love in books! it’s for an upcoming post xx
