The Devil Wears Prada Book Review

I have been wanting to read the Devil Wears Prada ever since I watched the film when I was younger, but never got the chance to pick up a copy. However, when I saw it in a charity bookshop for £1.50, I couldn't resist and bought it.

Since I already had a few books I wanted to read first, it took me a while to get round to reading it. 
Now that I have read it, I can say that I definitely preferred the film, but still really enjoyed the book and glad I read it.

The book is quite different to the film and I think watching the film before reading the book slightly ruined the book for me because I couldn't imagine the characters by using the description from the book, I went off what the actors looked like in the film. I also didn't enjoy how long the chapters were, one was 50 pages long, because I can't sit and read for a long amount of time without having breaks and I couldn't when there was long chapters.

However, really began to enjoy the book towards the end. 

I gave this book a 4/5 stars

The Diabolic Book Review

I have been seeing this book all over YouTube and since everyone has been raving about it, I decided to get it. That and the fact that it was £5 for the hardback edition. 

I didn't know what to expect from The Diabolic by S.J Kincaid as it is a sci-fi novel and I have never read a sci-fi novel before.

The Diabolic follows the story of Nemesis who is a diabolic, a humanoid teenager who was created to protect a galactic senator's daughter, Sidonia. When Sidonia is summoned by the Emporer as a hostage, Nemesis desguises her self as Sidonia and goes in her place.

Oh... My... God! It was amazing! I absolutely loved the concept of a diabolic and having a humanoid created to protect a single person and fell in love with Nemesis - she was so badass. I also liked Tyrus as a character towards the end of the book. 

From chapter 18 to the end it was just drama central and everytime I wanted to put the book down, how the chapter would end would pull me back in. It was reallt unpredictable and inredibly intense at times which made me enjoy so much more. Also there was so much deception throughout the book and it had such an unexpected ending. There was so much deception that I was resting my head on the book once I had finished and kept saying "such deception".

 I found the genres a weird mixture - sci-fi and romance- but it really worked well. The romance part of the book made it more enjoyable for me as well because I love romance and wouldn't have loved it as near enough if it was romanceless. 

However,  found it a liitle too sci-fi at the start but that was probably because I have never read a sci-fi novel before. 

Other than that, it was utter brilliance and made me want to read more sci-fi in the future. I am incredibly happy that I fell for the hype!

I gave this a 5/5 stars

Have you read The Diabolic?

The Thousandth Floor Book Review

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee follows the life of five teenagers who all live a thousand storey tower in New York who's lives all intertwine.

I got this book for my birthday from a friend and fellow book blogger Ashleigh, and was really excited to read it as a lot of people on YouTube have been raving about it. I was also excited because I haven't read anything sci-fi/futuristic before and a lot of people have said it is like a futuristic Gossip Girl and I would agree. At the first few chapters I was finding myself sat there thinking just how similar it is to Gossip Girl and was actually thinking about which person in the book is most like the TV characters. 

I absolutley loved the futuristic element of the book and also how it was a mish-mash of lots of different genres - romance, mystery and sci-fi - as well as including a ton of drama. Also, I found the concept of having a 1000 storey tower where millions of people live really intriguing.

I found the book super intense at the end and ridiculously addictive. I loved all the characters and how different they all were, but mainly loved how cute Eris and Mariel was. I'd have to say my favourite character was Watt, just loved him throughout. I am also in love with the cover, it is just stunning. 

I gave this book a 5/5 stars on goodreads

Have you read The Thousandth Floor?

The Book Of You Book Review

I accidentally bought this whilst buying some sweets in Poundland for the cinema, the cover just sucked me in, and because it was only £1 I couldn't leave it. 

It is about Clarissa and how she is being stalked by her colleague, Rafe. She has tried reporting him but the police say she needs evidence. Her only way to escape his stalking tendencies is when she is called for jury service for seven weeks.

To say I don't like thrillers, I absolutely loved The Book Of You! It was incredibly gripping and I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with Clarissa because of how strong a character she was throughout the whole of the book.

It was really unpredictable as well, which made me even more excited to read it. I also wasn't expecting the ending and once I had finished the book, I had to sit and let what had happened sink in.

I really wasn't to love it as much as I did mainly because I don't typically like thrillers, but also because I haven't heard of the book or author.

The A To Z Of Normal Book Review

Clare has OCD and has to have all her belongings in their designated spot in her flat. She has managed to keep her disorder a secret from Tom but when he proposes to her, she soon realises she cant keep it a secret anymore. 

I have had my eye on this book for a while and have had it sat in my Amazon wishlist for ages. So when I was ordering my friends christmas presents and saw it was only 86p, I had to get it.

I was quite dissapointed by The A To Z Of Normal as it was a little cringey when it came to the relationship between Clare and Tom. I also hated Michael as a character. However, I really liked how it was about struggling with OCD. I can't really complain about it since it was supposed to be £10 and I got it for less that £1.

Who Do You Love Book Review

I picked up Who Do You Love during the summer at The Works but hadn't got around to reading it until now.

Rachel and Andy meet at 8 years old in the emergency room. Throughout 30 years their lives intertwine as they always find their way back to each other.

I found that the chapters were really, painfully long - between 15 and 40+ pages, which made it hard for me to sit and read multiple chapters in one go. I was also left a bit disappointed at the end of the book becuase it ended so abruptly.

However, I loved how it was told from both characters perspectives (Rachel was my favourite) and, once the book had actually started and got to the drama, I really enjoyed it. Also, I liked how it took place over 30 years so you got to see how the characters changed throughout the book. I had never heard of Jennifer Weiner, but now I have read one of her books, I want to read more. I also thought the cover was really pretty.

Have you read any Jennifer Weiner books?

Time To Say Goodbye Book Review

Time to say goodbye follows the story of Will and his choices when he dies. He is faced with the choice of whether to stay on earth as a spirit forever or to go to heaven. One thing is making him want to stay, his daughter, because he promised her after her mum died that he would never leave.

I kind of went into this book blind. I had never heard of the author before and didn't know what to expect.

This book is completely different to what I was expecting and was unlike anything I have ever read before. I wasn't expecting the storyline of Will's dad and for the character Charles Devlin to be who he is. 
Throughout the book I was constantly left guessing on what was going to happen. As soon as I decided on how it as going to end, the next chapter would change my mind. I wasn't expecting it to end how it did. It also has such a beautiful cover.

The Spinster Club Series and Novella Book Review

I have had the first two books in this series since April and have never gotten round to reading them. Two of my friends have raved about them for ages and told me to read them, so I did.... And I loved them!!!

Am I Normal Yet?

The first book, Am I Normal Yet?, follows the story of Evie. Since she was sectioned when she was younger she has worried about being 'normal'. With her soon to start college, she worries about making friends and whether they will leave her if she tells them about her mental illness. After a house party gone wrong Evie meets Lottie and Amber and they soon bond over their feminist opinions. They create the "spinster" club where they meet weekly to discuss feminist issues. 

I absolutely loved Evie as a character (my favourite out of the three) and I really enjoyed the storyline behind her OCD. I liked how it talked about mental illness as there aren't a lot of books that do. I also liked how it talked about feminism, kind of made me a feminist. 
To say it is the first book in a series, I found it really good. It wasn't just a bit of a fluff story where you meet characters etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed Am I Normal Yet? and wished it had carried on with Evie's story instead of ending abruptly.

How Hard Can Love Be?

The second book, How Hard Can Love Be? follows the story of Amber. During the summer she flies to California to spend six weeks with her mum and step dad at their summer camp. Amber is bad at love, and at the age of 17 she still hasn't had her first kiss, so when she starts falling for Prom King Kyle she is weary, especially since her mom calls him a serial heartbreaker.

Whilst reading the book I fell in love with Amber and found her utterly hilarious. I also loved the american characters, mainly Kyle and Whinnie because of her Winnie the Pooh logic. I really enjoyed how it was set in America because I love America and all the american characters were funny and well portrayed.

I really liked how it carried on with the feminism opinions, but also added other people's opinions and how even though it was part of a series, it told someone else's story. Even though I absolutely love romance books, I liked how this book wasn't fully a love story. It only became a love story half way through.
Also. reading  How Hard Can Love Be? got me excited to read the third and final book in the series.

What's A Girl Gotta Do?

The third and final book in the series, What's A Girl Gotta Do? follows the story of Lottie. She is incredibly smart and hopes that one day she will be Prime Minister. However, one day she is a victim of sexual harrassment and she thinks "enough it enough!". So she creates a feminism campaign where for a month she will call out all accounts of feminism, no matter where she is, and video is. And so the Vagilante campaign is born.

Like I have said about the characters in the first two books, I love Lottie. Holly Bourne just has a way to make you love her characters by using words. I love how strong and opinionated Lottie is and I think we are quite similar. What ever she was feeling in the book, I felt it to. 
I really enjoyed how the book was mainly about feminism and how it was from a teenagers perspective because not a lot of books, especially young adult, don't talk about it. Also, I really liked the story line and found the whole idea of the campaign genius. I am also really glad it contained some romance, just a hint, because I love romance!

... And A Happy New Year?
I was so happy that Holly Bourne continued the series on, especially since the novella was released the day after I finished the final book.

The three girls throw a New Years Party and are all back together for the first time since college. Since college, everything has changed. Lottie is too busy in London at university to see the girls, and Amber and Evie are keeping secrets. 

I really enjoyed reading ..... And A Happy New Year? and couldn't put it down. I am so glad that the story didn't end at the third book, I became addicted to the three girls. When reading the novella I kept telling myself to stop reading because it is only short and wanted it not to end, however I devoured the 224 pages in one sitting! 

I really liked how it took place in one night and that the whole story was told from all three girls' perspectives. However, I found Amber and Lottie's parts a little predictable.


I really enjoyed the entire Spinster Club series and it made me want to read more of Holly Bourne's books. Also, I liked how they tackeld life issues like feminism and mental health, even though it is a young adult book series. I absolutely loved all three characters and found them incredibly funny. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the style of writing and could sit for hours reading chapter after chapter of each book. I also fell in love with all four book covers and spines, I mean look at them..... They are all stunning!

After You Book Review

I originally didn't want to read After You because for me, the story ended at the end of Me Before You and I didn't want to think of a story after the character Will Traynor. However, it was in buy one get one half price in Waterstones and I was already getting one book, so I thought "why not?"

After You follows on 18 months after Will's death. Lou is living in London in a apartment she bought with Will's money and working in an airport pub. One night Lou has a serious accident which turns her life upside down. Since she can't move on from Will, she joins the Moving On Circle group. However, when she begins to move on a stranger turns up on her doorstep from Will's past and wants answers.

I don't know what to say about this book... I really enjoyed it but it wasn't as good as the first one. I missed have the character Will in the story and it wasn't what I expected the story to be. I found the book a little predictable, I knew how it would end when I was half way through the book, and there were times where I didn't see it coming, like when it was revealed who Lily was. 

However, I liked how Lou was developed as a character and the elements of romance and mystery in the book.

Have you read After You?

Pride and Prejudice Book Review

I am a huge fan of the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film, so when I saw this copy of the book classic for £1.99 I immediately added it to my amazon basket. Since I read a lot of contemporay, I thought that I would give this a read to break it up as I have never read a classic before. I chose to read this during the summer as I would a lot more free time to solely focus on the book, but I didn't realise just how much time reading this book would take. 

To say it is only 329 pages long, it took me two and a half months to read! My excuse being it is written in old English and took me a while to process what it actually meant. However, even though it took me forever to read, I loved it! Also, because it is so different to what I usually read, that made me like it even more. 

Because I loved it so much I have added more classics to my wishlist and am quite excited to start reading Persuasion by Jane Austen too. Hopefully that won't take me as long to read as it is way shorter.

Have you read any classics?

The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting Book Review

Whilst looking for a new book to read on the waterstones website, I came across this book and after months of talking and thinking about it, I decided to pick it up. 

Bree is considered an outsider and unpopular as school. She is an aspiring writer but gets rejected at every turn. When she is told that she needs to start living a life worth writing about she creates The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting, a blog where she shares the six steps of how to become 'popular'. 

Even though it took me a while to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and quickly fell in love with the story and main character, Bree. Within half of the book, I added The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting to my favourite reads of 2016 list. This is the first Holly Bourne book that I have read and it has made me so excited to read the other three I own because it was such a good read. The main thing I loved about TMOHTBI is how unpredictable it was. The majority of the last quarter was really unpredictable for me and when I was reading it, my eyes got wider and wider and my eyebrows were half way up my forehead because I was so shocked and wasn't expecting it to end how it did. 

Have you read any Holly Bourne books?

What I Got For MY 18th Birthday!

On 20th November, a week ago, I turned 18 and so I thought it was appropriate that I share what I got for my birthday.

First of all, my two sisters bought me a sparkly wine glass which is too pretty for me to use, and the fairytale book pandora charm, which I have wanted for ages! My mum and her partner also bought me a pandora charm, the heart, which is so pretty. Also, my dad got me the pandora tiara ring and I bought myself the pandora flower ring. 

Two of my friends, Abbie and Ashleigh, bought me The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee and Fates And Furies by Lauren Groff. My friend Kirsty bought me a ton of Lush things and one of my favourite chocolate bars. All the Lush products smell amazing.... Snow Fairy *heart eyes*! Another friend, Liam,  bought me a Yankee Candle in one of my favourite scents and it smells divine! 

Finally, my closest friend, Lauren, bought me two books, This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and the Stardust bath bomb from Lush. She also made me a scrap book of photos of me and her throughout the 13 years we have been friends.

Fangirl Book Review

I had never heard of Rainbow Rowell before this year and I don't understand how. This year I have become addicted to BookTubers, and spend too much time watching book related videos, and every single person's videos I watched they raved about this book. Since it is a contemporary, I knew I would be interested in it, so I looked it up on Amazon and bought it. 

The book follows the first year of college life of Cath, who until now was attached to her twin and spent her time writing fan-fiction. Now at college, she has to deal with life on her own and make her own friends.

It took me a while to get around to reading it, but I am glad that I finally did and wish I had read it sooner. I absolutely loved this book and didn't want it to end. I immediately fell in love with the main character, Cath, and found her very similar to myself. I also loved the relationship between Cath and Levi. 

Also, for me the book was quite unpredictable and throghout the whole book I was thinking "Oh no!" "OMG!" or "Yay!"

I would definitely say this is one of my favourite reads of the year.

RSVP Book Review

I'm not going to lie, I originally picked this up because of the pretty cover, but it was when I read the blurb that I was sold. The book is told from four women's perspectives who's lives all intertwine. 

I have never heard of Helen Warner before, so I was a little skeptical as to how much I would enjoy the book. However, I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down. I especially liked how it was told from four different perspectives and that all their lives intertwined. Also, I loved all the characters and wish it didn't end where it did. However, it was predictable at times.

Have you read this?

Sticking to what I enjoy...

I really love reading and books. And because I am feeling so uninspired about creating content, I thought I would stick to what I love and just write book themed posts....

They will probably be mostly book reviews because I love sharing my opinion on books, but I will occasionally do other book related posts. They also might not be regular and up every week, it just depends on how I am feeling and whether I want to post or not.

Just because I am saying that the new content is going to be on book, doesn't mean that it will stay like that. I may decide to write something totally random and un-book related. However, for now this is how I am feeling.

All The Bright Places Book Review

I was recommended to read this book by two of my friends, and I am glad they did.

It follows the budding relationship between Violet and Theodore (Finch), who meet at the top of the school bell tower. They pair together to complete a school project and the friendship begins.

I absolutely loved this book and found it utterly beautiful. Throughout the book I kept falling deeper and deeper in love with the two main characters and the relationship between the two of them. As I got further into the book I regretted not reading it sooner.  I really enjoyed how it was told from two peoples perspectives, I really like stories like that.
When I got to the last few chapters I had a little emotion break down, which only happens when I get super attached to the story. 

Reading this has made me quite excited to read more Jennifer Niven books!

This book definitely made it onto my favourite reads of 2016.

The Book Tag

I am back! I know it wasn't a long break, but I guess I missed it too much to not do it. After much consideration, I have decided to come back but scrap the schedule of posting on Fridays and just posting when I want. I am also just going to post the things that I am actually happy with and want to post instead of just posting whatever just to meet the schedule. Right, rant over. Enjoy :)

I have seen the book tag everywhere from blogs to youtube videos and never really thought about doing it myself. However, when I saw the tag on the blog freeformhappiness, I decided to do it for myself. I especially thought I should do this tag because I love books and am most content when I am curled up with a good book.

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Usually my bed with music playing or some sort of background noise. I also sometimes read at college when I am alone.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I use a birthday card envelope from a few years ago because it is so cute.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
I either stop at a chapter or when it gets to the end of the day in a book and there is a "***".

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
I don't eat while reading that often but most of time I sit with a hot drink. It just makes it even more cosy.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
Either. I like to have background noise whilst reading. Although, I sometimes read in silence.

6. One book at a time or several at once?
Just one. Otherwise I get confused.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?
Mostly at home but I take a book to college with me in case I have a spare moment between lessons.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head.  I sometimes mouth the words, but only when I am alone or with friends.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I try not to break the spine, but it happens sometimes.

11. Do you write in your books?
Never! Never! Never!

12. Who do you tag?

Should I Quit Blogging?

For a while now I have been feeling like I am failing on the blogging front. I have become incredibly busy and my blog is suffering  with the repercussions of this. I usually spend my days off and free time coming up with innovative post ideas, taking photos and writing posts. However, when come to writing content or coming up with ideas I can't. I get a mental block and just it there stressing about not being able to come up with content.

The question on whether to quit blogging or just to stick with it has been in the back of mind for a while and my answer is simple...... I don't know. I love blogging for so many reasons but I can't help feeling like I should just give up and start something else.

If I was to stick to it, I feel like the content won't be exciting creative posts, but just mundane bits of content that no one, myself included, actually care about. 

My only other conclusion is to take a break, I don't know for how long, and just see how I feel and to see what content I come up with.

Billy And Me & Always With Love Book Review

I bought this book in The Works in April and was really eager to read it.  After reading another Giovanna Fletcher book I was excited to see more of what she has to offer.

As soon as I read the first page of the book I was hooked and couldn't put it. I became that addicted I read it in less than 24 hours. The book was beautifully written and I soon fell in love with the two main characters, Sophie and Billy, and their love story. Even though I found it predictable as times, it still managed to surprise me throughout and didn't want the story to end. Safe to say this is one of my favourite reads of 2016. 

I was also super excited to here that the sequel was going to be released shortly after I finished this book.

After reading Billy And Me, I was left wanting more, so when I saw the announcement for the sequel I was so excited. I got so excited that I instantly ordered it on Amazon and wanted to devour it right there and then.

It follows the relationship of Sophie May and Billy Buskin. When they go to LA to visit Billy's family they only expected to stay for two weeks. But Billy ends up taking a job, leaving Sophie to go home alone. And so their long distance relationship begins.

I absolutely loved this book! And was so glad that it became a sequel. I was so excited that I read it in three days, but I could have devoured it in one. Whilst reading it, I fell in love with the main characters all over again. I need more!

This book quickly became one of my favourite reads of 2016!

What I Do For A Bit Of 'Me Time'

Everyone knows how important a bit of 'me time' is. Just an amount of time to just concentrate on you and to escape from the world. So, I wanted to share what I do to escape from everything and chill.

One of the things I do is read. Reading and books are a passion of mine and I just love delving into a book and diving into a world of fiction. With a really good book, I could spend a whole day just huddled up with a book. To see the reasons why I love reading, check this post out. I also love adult colouring books and have spent many days just sat colouring design after design in my colouring book. I find it so calming and helps me forget about all the stress. 

Another thing I do for me time is sit and watch YouTube videos. I have actually spent a weekend in bed just binge-watching booktube videos. Also, I watch tv shows which gets me invested in the plot of the story rather than thinking about work etc. Furthermore, I usually sit and watch a film or several films which just lets me chill out for an hour or two before going back to the real world.

What do you do for 'me time'?

Summer At The Lake Book Review

I am sorry for the delayed post... I was quite busy yesterday and didn't have time to publish this post. Anyways...... enjoy

I really enjoy reading Erica James' books, so when I saw Summer At The Lake in The Works, I instantly grabbed it. 

It follows the story of three people and how Lake Como changes their lives. For Esme, it is where she fell in love sixty years ago. For Floriana, it is where the love of her life is getting married. And for Adam, it is where he falls in love. 

At first I found the book really hard to get into because of the switch to each of three characters stories. However, once all the characters were linked together, I found it easier to follow. 
I loved reading about Esme's past because it was romantic, sad and a little dramatic. Whenever Lake Como was described in the book, I could picture is so clearly, which doesn't happen that often. 

It had great humour throughout and ended too quickly, but I still loved it.

Have you read this book?

How I Got Through My First Year Of College...

When looking at other blogs/youtube videos, I see a lot of content on how that person got through a year of university but never college. So since I have just finished my first year of studying at college, I thought it was a relevant post to do.

This is something I learnt when I was in Year 10 of school, that attending everyday or at least catching up with what you have missed out on is key to passing, and I have carried it on through my first year of college. I have not missed a day and that has helped me keep track of what is happening in class.

Keeping Track of Important Dates
I made it a thing for this academic to have a diary so I can write in deadlines, holidays and key things to remember and it has helped me track how long I have to complete a certain task and to manage my time efficiently. 

Asking For Help 
I used to never ask for help with work and would just sit there like a lemon. However, whenever I am stuck with work I always asked my friends or teacher for help. That way I wasn't wasting time sat like a lemon, and instead I got on with my work.

Spending The Occasional Day Off/Weekend Working
With my course I have been timetabled two days off and with those days I either have a me day, work on my blog, or do college work. I mainly get my college work done at college, so my days off are spent doing the former two of the three, but I occasionally spend those days doing theory work for my course or tweaking pieces. By doing this, it has saved me so much class time where I can be getting on with important pieces of work.

Surrounding Myself With A Good Group Of People
Three of my closest friends are what I have made whilst being on this course, so they understand what I am doing and know, most of the time, how to help. By having friends that are on my course it makes me feel like I'm not alone in stressful situations and means that when projects are set we can work together, like in photoshoots/videoshoots. 
I also have a friend doing A Levels, so we both understand if the other can't do something one weekend etc.

Spending Time With Family
I made it a thing this year to spend every Saturday I can at my nan's. This has helped me tremendously in not losing my mind and drowning in stressful college stuff. It just gives me time to forget about the stress and focus on something else.

You're The One That I Want Book Review

I had never read a Giovanna Fletcher book before, but when I saw two of her books in The Works, I knew I had to have them. One of these books was You're The One That I Want which follows the lives of three best friends from the age of nine. Maddie is best friends with Ben and Rob and she loves them both, but on her wedding day she has to decide whether she should marry Rob or choose Ben.

Once I got into this book, I was addicted and it only took me a short amount of time to read. I loved how it was told from Maddie and Ben's perspective, but would have liked to have Rob's perspective as well. Whilst reading the book, I found myself predicting the ending. However, I still loved it and would say it is one of my favourite reads of 2016. After reading and loving this book so much, it made me super excited to read more Giovanna Fletcher books.

Maybelline Colour Tattoos

I am so glad that these little beauties exist!
They are by far one of my favourite eye products as they come in such beautiful shades and are incredibly cheap with a high end quality. I originally owned the shade creamy beige and loved it. When I went to repurchase it, Superdrug had a 3 for 2 offer and I was already getting another product, so I picked up my repurchase and then the shade on and on bronze for free. 

They are both a warm brown but creamy beige has a little shimmer in it and on and on bronze is metallic and has a lot of shimmer. To say they are the same product but in different shades, the formulation of the two are quite different. Creamy beige in a thick and slightly more pigmented cream, where as on and on bronze is really creamy and less pigmented. So whenever I want to where on and on bronze, I always wear creamy beige underneath, which makes it last an amazing amount of time.

To say they are on £5 each, the quality is amazing. They are long lasting, once you it on it stays put, doesn't crease and  has a great pigmentation. They are also available in loads more vibrant colours.

Have you tried the Colour Tattoos?
