Review
5 Stars
The Sun is Also a Star Review
The Sun Is Also a Star - Nicola Yoon

Another amazing book I loved that the story was a simply about a girl who loved science and believed that everything that happens has a scientific reason behind it, along comes guy who wants to try and convince this girl that he can make her fall in love with her by the end of the day and that it has nothing to do with science but fate and the way that they feel. The girl has nothing better to do with her day and its a really fluffy read that does get a little deep but it wasn't too much for me to handle so I thought it was brilliant. I found myself really absorbed in the characters lives and i was hoping and praying that everything would work out.

 

Nichola Yoon writes this brilliant because there is the perspective of both he girl and the guy but there is also the perspective of the universe which is a great touch. Nicola Yoon approached the subject of different race and cultures brilliant and it was done softly she didn't say that oe was better than the other and because she was doing it from young people's eyes the problems where something that you could understand.

I will read ANYTHING that Nichola Yoon publishes I love her work !!!

 

 

 

Carrie Fisher-The Princess Diarist Review
The Princess Diarist - Carrie Fisher

My first review for 2017 is a book that I completed in 2016.

 

I bought this book on my birthday in December and I didn't read it straight away but as soon as the awful news of Carrie Fishers passing came to light I had to stop what I was reading and read this book.

 

I really loved this book she didn't shy away from telling people what happened in her life and also about her and Harrison Ford, which I didn't think was that big of a deal and I have no idea why people kept going on about. 

 

There was alot of lol moment and I found myself either smiling to myself or laughing to myself and that raised questions with my family, but

honestly it was just because of how witty and sassy women.

 

I think that if you are a Princess Leia only fan then its probably not for you because it is fans for Carrie Fisher however Princess Leia fans will probably like it because it is a lot to do with the time that she filming the momentous films. 

 

Now Im not going to lie this is a terrible review its short and doesn't go into much detail but I promise my next review will be much better. My system crashed out so I couldnt post until now so I guess thats also a reason for the terrible review.

 

 

2017 HERE I COME !!!!

 

 

 

 

The title of this post says it all tonight I have decided that 2017 is going to be totally awesome I have alot of plans they arent exactly New Year Resolutions I guess but I want to try and keep to them.

 

-These little things include posting more on here and WordPress(when it works).

 

- Read more which is a given haha my reading goal is 30.

 

- Now I know alot of people will have said this about losing weight and eating better but my reason is for my health because if i lose some weight and realise the pressure on my joints, my risk of getting MS is reduced and I am trying all I can to make sure that I am not diagnosed with it.

 

-I like my job and I have tried but I am coming up to a year there and honestly I have never wanted to put my whole heart into a job before and thats my plan put my whole heart in and work my way to better things and also more money I plan on working alot more hours.

 

 

 

Hi Everyone

 

 

 

HEY EVERYONE!!!!

 

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and Santa brought you everything you asked for.

 

Now I have seen the post about the site getting the help it needs ect but i honestly haven't had any problems but I suppose its because I don't post often because Im not going to lie the site doesn't incise me because it runs so slow and I get really inpatient and end up closing it off and not blogging which isn't what I want to do I want to make this something that I can talk about books and be part of a community hopefully that will change. 

 

Now I was reading Replica by Lauren Oliver but when I heard about the death of Carrie Fisher (May she rest in peace) I had to read her book The princess Diarist which I got for my Birthday and I honestly have found it so good I have been at work since I heard about her death so I have had to read it in little chunks but I do plan on finishing it tonight because its so good. 

 

Whats everyone reading and also what did Santa bring yo for Christmas ???

 

I got a lovely illustrated edition of Game of Thrones.

4 Stars
Hollow City Review
Hollow City - Ransom Riggs

Hollow City Review 

 

Star review: 4

Pages:352

Publisher: Quirk Books

 

This was a total love, hate kind of book for me it could be because I was reading it at a bad time in my life but I just felt that it dragged on a little it would speed up and I would be totally hooked for about 2 chapters and then it would slow down the last 3 chapters to me made the story because I just couldnt put it down I wanted to know what happened to Miss Peregine and the children. 

I did however kind of call the fact that Jacob would say he is going to leave but something would stop him from leaving I think its because I knew there was a third book.

I loved all the characters in the book the development in each character was amazing I loved how they all seemed to have come out their shell and had alot of personality they felt like real people to me and I was imagining each of them in my mind overtime one of them spoke I imagined how they stood hat they looked like. The detail that Ransom Riggs is fabulous and when I was reading it I really felt that I was in the world its like he sucked me into the world again and its like I never left especially when it was so long ago when I read the first one. 

 

whats everyones opinion on this ??

 

I have to say that reading this book has helped me love reading again so I am not to my next read and nearly finished it so its all good

MIA

 

 

 

 

I have been MIA for a week or two and honestly I want to apologise however being away from all this has been good for me simply because I has a lot going on with my health which you already know so I wont bore you with it.

 

Except that I am now on the mend and feeling alot better and plan on blogging at least twice a week simply with things like my top 5 books in genre and anything that people want to see. My review for Hollow City is also coming tomorrow and I can't wait to write it because I really did love the story.

 

Like everyone else also this month I can't wait for Christmas and also my birthday I am not getting as many books simply because I do want to read the books I have and that but I am not making any promises because I am a complete book nerd and will just carry on buying more and more.

 

Its getting very cold here in the UK and the north east I am sat here in my double quilt so the odds of me blogging is higher because I have not got much else to do.

 

I hope everyone has had an amazing week 

 

Start of my Holiday!!


 

So its now the start of my time off work and I don't go back until 1st December which is amazing especially now that I have been told that my condition on my eye is Optic Neuritis which is a symptom for MS which hasn't been confirmed just yet I am having to go to my doctors who will confirm if its the start of MS its hard to stay positive but I have to at least try to be. 

 

I plan on reading a lot this time that I am off simply because I have to finish Hollow City because it is really good but life has taken over and I haven't been able to read because after my day has finished I have been so tired and just want to sleep but now that I don't have to really be up early I can now do what I used to do and read past my bedtime.

 

I will be back in the middle of the week with an update on my reading with Hollow City I promise.  

Wednesday Night

 

More than half way through my week before I have 10 days off so its 8 hours tomorrow 3 n half hours Friday and 2 n half hours on Monday. 

 

Its been a good week at work I had my teething problems with the job but I think I am good and settled into an amazing job. So I am now going to the shops tomorrow to buy lots of stationery and folders to organise my paperwork and my desk because today my OCD went into overdrive and it has drove me crazy all day. 

 

I am disappointed alittle in myself because I haven't read much but I suppose that sometimes life takes over, but I plan on making up for that when I ma off my 10 days because I have NOTHING at all planned and I am planning on having a few PJ days which you can't beat especially in the cold weather that we have got so its snuggles in my double bed with my nice warm quilt cover.

 

 

Sunday Night

 

Well my week off work is now over which I am rather sad about especially now the I am really getting into Hollow City and I don't want to put it down. But I only have to get the coming week and then I am off again so there is a silver lining I guess haha.

 

I am currently sat watching I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here which means that my night have now been taken by the lovely Ant and Dec so it could be worse.

 

I have also started a tea detox with BooTea so I am looking forward to the outcome which I can keep you informed if you like because I have heard alot of buzz around this tea and I want to see if it lives up to the hype.

 

I am also sat here looking on profiles and also following people ect but it will be a slow process because I am of course getting distracted by the TV. 

 

Thanks for reading guys :) 

Saturday Night

 

Evening everyone 

 

So my plan last night was to watch some Big Bang Theory and then read for a little while and then come on here and have a look around and follow some people ect but that never happened I ended up watching Big Bang Theory until 11:00pm and then going to bed (hardcore me you know)

 

But tonight I have got a plan and intend to stick to it because I am really serious about making this awesome and interacting with people who loves books as much as me because I not only love reading I also love the research for new books and recommendations.

 

For now though I am going back to my PS4 and watching the WWE network so I will see all you guys soon. 

8th November

 

I am still trying hard to find way to increase the attention I am getting on this blog (which I haven't been on a lot so I know that hasn't helped) so ANYONE with a good social reach with some advice would be greatly appreciated because I would love to have more traffic to this blog, I was going to start a YouTube channel but I am far too nervous and it would send my anxiety into overdrive so i am just going to stick to watching YouTube video I live for the days that Acacia Ives posts her video's 

 

I have started reading Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's book 2) and I am only 66 pages in but it seems to be picking up already and I can't wait to finish writing this up to continue it and then read Library of Souls my reading is picking up which is great but I think that the pressure to read does come from seeing that other people are reading so much and i know that its something that I can't help because I am so busy with work I just have to start making more time to read especially on a night time. 

 

What is everyone else reading comment below and let me know if you recommend it ???

 

New House/ New Room

35973671

I finally after 11 years have my own room and I am LOVING it. I finally have my own space and its great because I can finally blog more and also read ALOT more and that will be done once I can see better out my right eye because I currently have inflamed retina and its extremely painful but I am managing to adjust to it just in case it is to happen again, I am due to have a brain scan soon to go into depth with why it was triggered and hopefully it wont happen again but they said not to be too positive until we find out what the trigger was.

Despite not being able to see very well it never stopped me from purchasing books I got Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets illustrated edition and wow its beautiful I also bought 2 books in the Disney Villains, The Beast Within  and The Fairest of All by Serena Valentino and also bought 2 books from Disney Twisted, Once Upon a Dream and A Whole New World. I can not wait to read these because these are easy reads and are going to be the best things to get back into the swing of reading my next blog will probably bee at the weekend and then maybe a few next week because I have a week off work just to chill and more than likely read alot and get some posts up because I really do love typing these blogs .

Another Week done !!!

audrey-hepburn-inspirational-quotes-22

Another week has been and gone and its been a slow busy week and I honestly felt like it was never going to end.

I didn't have the best week, the only thing that was getting me through was that I was off for the entire weekend and not in until 12 on Monday. My anxiety was in full flow all week leading up until Friday when I finished at 2:30 because of a meeting I had and it honestly tore me up inside. a lot of people were saying "told you, you had nothing to worry about" but they didn't understand that to me it was out of my control and I couldn't help the worry I was feeling.

I am STILL reading The Red Queen due to my stress I haven't felt like reading all I have been doing is work and then coming home and laying in bed watching YouTube and listening to Podcasts which really did help me get to sleep on a night cause it calmed my nerves a lot. I did mention in my last post that I was struggling to red the book because IT DOESN'T HAVE CHAPTERS, and its driving me crazy and I feel that the book is taking forever and it is because I have been reading it for about 2 weeks if not longer which isn't normal for me I normal read 1 a week if I have plenty of time. I plan on finishing the book tonight or tomorrow and I have so many books so I have no idea which one I am going to read next I think it maybe Hollow City because I really did love Miss Peregrine and I was waiting for Library of Should to be released on paperback in the UK so that I could finish the entire series.

 

Today I went to whitby with my Nanna, mum and sister for my nanna's 70th Birthday which is tomorrow and I went to a book shop and bought an amazing edition of Alice and Wonderland and other stories which is pink and hard back and beautiful. I also bought a Audrey Hepburn bag which is stunning pictures to come on my Instagram lollypop_lou92.

 

Thank you for reading I am going to go away and read the Red Queen.

Love Louise 

 

Late Night Blog

 

I know I have wrote later than this but I am trying to get into a routine of not staying up too late and getting a good amount of sleep which isn't really working to my advantage just yet because I have failed to go to bed earlier than 00:30 which isn't that bad its earlier than the 2-3 o'clocks. 

 

I had a busy stressful week last week but i am hoping that this week is going to run more smoothly I have a very important meeting at work on Friday which has my anxiety in overdrive because I don't know what is going to happen at the end of it so fingers crossed for a good result. 

 

I am still reading Red Queen (Chronicles of Alice 2) and I'm not going to lie I am struggling to read it the fact that there is no chapters to break up the story makes me feel as though its going on and on and its never going to stop I will finish it but I can't garentee that I won't read another book in the mean time which I never do but I think I will be for this cause I really am struggling to want to carry on with this story. 

Alice Review
Alice - Christina Henry

Alice 

Author: Christina Henry

Publisher: Titan Books

Price: £6.99 Waterstones

Rating: 4*

I have the UK edition

 

I had never even heard of this book until I watched a Booktube video and I am really glad that I found this book because it really was a great read. Now the first thing I have to say is that if you don't like dark twisted tellings then don't read this because it is a very dark book that is nothing like the original storyline of Alice in Wonderland which I thought was amazing because I love books that are a retelling but its completely off the original or the opposite of the original.

 

Mr Carpenter, Cheshire, The Walrus, The Caterpillar and The Rabbit alongside Dor. All the original characters are found in the book with their original names apart from in one case, the Mad Hatter, who is now Nicholas The Hatcher of Heathtown, it was great to see a twist to the original characters. Now this book is not for the faint hearted because it could be off putting to someone women because they are brough across as victims because they are only there for men for their pleasure and for sex, it doesn't go into a lot of detail so it isn't too heavy however there is apart in the book where Alice and Hatcher are in the 'butterflies' club and that was a heavy and disturbing. I wouldn't say this is a horror book is more disturbing book because it isn't like the type of horror that has you hiding in your bed thinking something is going to jump out at you 

 

I thought that this book was very well written and I did get very lost in the world and I did buy the second book I can not wait to read. I do have to say there are some trigger warning because of the rape and sexual abuse in this book, I don't want people going into this without knowing kind of what to expect without giving anything away. 

 

This book is Alice but is far from a Wonderland tale.
