11 Facts About Me:

  1. My all time favourite Disney movie is Mulan.

  9. My favourite number is 7.
  10. I love colouring books, they relax me a lot.
  11. I keep a diary where I write down all my thoughts, which I find very therapeutic.

Sorry if I have already mentioned any of these in some other posts. I’m terrible at coming up with facts about myself! But I hope you get to know more about me anyway. 😀


Cherry’s Questions:

1. Who is your number one fictional boyfriend and why?

I actually don’t have one. I do have quiet a lot of male characters that I love, but I don’t know if I would consider any of them to be my fictional boyfriend. It’s very rare for me to consider a character to be my fictional boyfriend and I really don’t have a number one among those few, simply because I like them for different reasons.

2. What is your favourite opening line from a book?

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien.


3. If your life could have a soundtrack, what songs would be on it?

I honestly have no idea. Probably all the rock and metal songs that I listen to the most. Especially since I tend to listen to music while walking around and it feels like they are all on my life soundtrack! Naming all of them would be impossible, as the list is quiet long. (Plus my phone is dead at the moment, so I can’t check my playlist either.)

4. What are some of your other hobbies besides reading?

Blogging is quiet obvious, but I think I need to mention it anyway as it takes up a lot of my time (a lot more than I thought it would when I started doing it). Besides reading I enjoy watching tv shows and anime. A big passion of mine is drawing and painting as well. Though I haven’t been doing much of that lately, as I simply had no time to do it. I do hope that changes soon! I also like to write stories (how good they are, that’s another thing). And I love going to museums and art galleries.


5. If you were your favourite book character, what would a typical day in your life look like?

I have a ton of favourite characters, so choosing just one seems really impossible. But if we are thinking of a favourite character whose life I wouldn’t mind having, the first one that comes to mind is Luna Lovegood.

My typical day, if she was still going to Hogwarts, would consist of attending classes, spending time with friends and exploring the school grounds. Plus of a lot of reading and studying. If it was during summer, I can imagine Luna going around and exploring nearby forests and fields – so I guess that’s what I would be doing as well.

GIF


6. What do you love the most about blogging?

There are two things that immediately come to my mind. One: I love sharing my thoughts on books, as I don’t have friends that read in real life. Two: the community and friends that I have made. Everyone is really lovely and I adore interacting with everyone and sharing my love for books (among other things).

GIF


7. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Japan. Without a doubt I would go to Japan. It’s a place that I have wanted to visit for the longest time, but never had the chance to do so. (Time and money aren’t on my side for this one.) So if I got the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world I would definitely pick Japan. I don’t even care if it would be a trip to a big city or a small town, I would just love to go there and experience the culture and everything else.

GIF


8. Favourite kind of ice cream?

I don’t actually have one favourite flavour. Ice cream is generally my favourite sweet food and I tend to get different flavours each time, depending on what kind of mood I’m in. (Or rather what I feel like eating.) I don’t have one specific go-to ice cream that I eat. Recently I have mostly been eating strawberry ice cream, I just have been in the mood for it for whatever reason.


Beth’s Questions:

1. Is there a book death you’re still not over, if so which one?

Oh, there are quiet a few book deaths that I found tragic, but one that immediately jumps to my mind whenever I hear this question. And that is the death from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. (I’m not actually going to mention who died, because of spoilers, but anyone who has read this book knows who I’m talking about.) It’s literary been YEARS since I first read this book and I just can’t get over the fact that this character died. I always imagine what it would be like if it didn’t happen and get extremely sad, because it can never be.


2. What is the one thing you cannot live without?

Stories. Any kind of stories, in any form. Books, tv shows, anime, games, movies. Any story really. I don’t think I could ever live without them and I just picturing my life without them makes it seem bleak and depressing.

GIF


3. What would be your dream job?

I would love to work in a museum or art gallery. That’s basically my dream, although I would love to be an author as well. Soooo I guess a combination of those two would be perfect for me. Kind of? (Sometimes I have no idea what I want to do with my life, but we won’t be focusing on that.)


4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, outside of the world, or in a book world, where would you go?

In the world: I would love to go to Scotland. It’s a place that I have always wanted to visit.

Outside of the world: Is it weird that I would like to go to the moon? I don’t know, I’m just fascinated by it – plus it would be an adventure like no other.

Book world: Definitely Harry Potter, without a doubt. I would love to have magic, plus it would be amazing to go to Hogwarts. And I would love to see all the magical creatures that exist within the Harry Potter world.

GIF


5. What is the best book you’ve read so far this year?

The first book that came to my mind was A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. I just adored everything about this book – from the world, to the magic, the characters and everything else. It’s definitely one of my new favourite books! I NEED to get to the second book in this series really soon!! I have a full review for A Darker Shade of Magic, if you want to know more of my thoughts.

Victoria Schwab


6. What is the worst book you’ve read so far this year?

While I did not hate Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson, it’s definitely the book that I was most disappointed in. The premise sounded amazing, the cover captivated me but I had so many problems with the story itself. I have a full review for this book, if you want to know what about it I disliked.

Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault


7. Favourite comfort food?

I don’t actually have a comfort food. It’s just that whenever I’m feeling down or in need of a comfort food I don’t feel like eating anything. I just loose my appetite. (It’s seriously the worst.) However I love hot chocolate – it’s my ultimate comfort drink! (If there is something like that.)

GIF


8. If you could pick one book to read again for the first time what would it be?

I would love to read The Chronicles of Narnia again for the first time. This is the series that actually got me into reading and the first one that I remember reading on my own as a child. It would really be interesting reading it again without knowing anything about it. I would really be interested to see what I would think of these books now.


9. What is your most anticipated new release, it doesn’t have to be a book, for this year?


10. Tell us about one positive thing that happened to you this week.

I managed to get into the Semester Course that I wanted the most!! I was really nervous all week, as I had no idea in which one I would end up in. (There were some that I really wasn’t interested in.) So it was AMAZING to get the news that I got into the first one on my list!

GIF


11. Do you have any holidays planned for this year, or have you already been somewhere amazing this year?

I have no holidays planned for this year, nor have I been anywhere amazing. This year just hasn’t been one for traveling, sadly that is (as I love traveling and exploring new places). Not that it’s a big surprise or anything like that – after all, I’m only a broke university student. Sooo no traveling in the near future for me!


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

award

The Unique Blogger Award!!

AwardI was nominated for this award by two people, Jessica @The Awkward Book Blogger and Pierina @Pierina Reads. Thank you both once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out both of their blogs!

THE RULES:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them three questions.

Jessica’s Questions:

1. If you could switch places with one character (book, TV, movie, anime, etc.), who would it be?

Why pick only one when you can three? (Or rather when you can’t really decide which ones you want to pick.) I have decided to pick two book characters and one from a tv show.

  • Elizabeth Bennet. She is one of my all time favourite female characters. I love the time period that Pride and Prejudice is set in and it would be amazing to switch places with her and being able to live through that period. (Plus there is Mr. Darcy and who am I to say no to that?)
  • Luna Lovegood. Was there any doubt that I would pick a Harry Potter character? I think not. Everyone knows I would love to live in the magical world of Harry Potter. (Along with all of you who also adore this series.) And seeing that Luna is my favourite female character from the series, I definitely would love to switch places with her. (By the way my favourite male character is Harry Potter.)
  • Rory Gilmore. Growing up I was obsessed with the Gilmore Girls and my favourite character was Rory, I could relate to her a lot (well, as much as child me could relate to a teenager). I would definitely love to switch places with her, it would be very fun to live her life. I recently watched a few episodes of this show, so that’s why I needed to pick Rory as well, as I was reminded why I loved her.

2. What is your most recent favourite book/series/author?

Since I’m unable to pick one recent favourite, I decided to go with three. (Lets be real, no one is surprised by that.) All three of these books were fantastic and I loved them! The Forbidden Wish is one of the best retellings that I have ever read. I also have a full review for it, if you want to more of my thoughts on it. Career of Evil is the third book in the Cormoran Strike series and so far my favourite one! It was completely action packed and had many unexpected turns and developments. (I NEED the next book in this series!) Eldest is the second series in the Inheritance Cycle and one I simply adored. It’s definitely the slowest book out of these, but I loved it nontheless. I just love the world and the characters in this story!


3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I think I would the power to control time. Honestly it sounds like an amazing power to have, plus it would be very useful as well. I can just imagine everything I could do, if I possessed this fantastic ability! (Though I don’t think it’s good to trust me with this kind of power, but we shall ignore that!)


Pierina’s Questions:

1. What is your go-to read when you are feeling down and need something to get you through the day?

That is, without a doubt, the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. This is my all time favourite series and the one that I love to reread all the time (I usually reread it once a year). This world and characters just feel like home to me and I always get into an amazing mood when I read these books. So they are quiet the obvious choice for this question!


2. If you had a choice to travel to any fictional world you could choose from, what world would you choose?

Well, I’m leaving out the magical worlds of Harry Potter and Narnia, as I literary always pick either of them and I want to change it up a bit! (But I would obviously love to travel to both of them.)  I would love to travel to the world of The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. I recently reread this book and it just reminded me how fascinated I was with the world and how much I would love to see it. I just would love to see everything magical and mundane that is part of this world.

                                     The Star-Touched Queen Roshani Chokshi


3. If you friend, sibling or relative asked you for book recommendations because they are suddenly interested in reading, what book would you recommend and why?

I usually recommend fast paced and engrossing books to people who want to get into reading. Sooo if someone hasn’t read anything and wanted to start out I would recommend these four. (Though now seeing them next to each other I can see quiet some similarities between them!) They are all very interesting, fast paced and not that long – so perfect for people who want to get into reading. (Plus I greatly enjoyed all of them, so there’s that as well.)


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

top five wednesday

Books to Read without the Synopsis || Top Five Wednesday

Feature

Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey @GingerReadsLainey and she has passed down the torch to Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. For more information and for future topics you can check out the goodreads group.


This week the theme for Top Five Wednesday was books to read without the synopsis and I was very intrigued by this theme (as I do like to read books that way from time to time), so I decided to create my own list. These are books that I read without reading the synopsis first and also books that I recommend you read without the synopsis. Nothing much to add to that, I think it’s very self-explenatory. Now lets get into the books that I decided to pick for this topic!


5. Any book by Agatha Christie

I never read a synopsis for an Agatha Christie book. First of all I don’t want to risk getting spoiled for whatever is going to happen. Second of all Agatha Christie is the queen of crime so I’m sure that I will enjoy whatever I pick up by her. (Or rather that has been the case so far.)

Nimona

4. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

The only thing that I knew about Nimona before reading it was the fact that it’s a graphic novel. (And that the art is cute, thanks to the cover.) I had no idea what it was about or where it would go and I was very pleasantly surprised by it when I read it. This one I definitely recommend reading without checking the synopsis, it’s just a lot more fun that way!

Where Things Come Back

3. Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

I knew literary nothing about Where Things Come Back before reading it. Going into it blind was the best idea that I could have had. This book kept surprising me with each revelation and I loved every moment of it. The synopsis gives quiet a few things away, so I think it’s definitely better going into this book blind.

Aristotle and Dante

2. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

As you may know, Aristotle and Dante is one of my all time favourite books. Before reading it I actually had no idea what it was about. I was very intrigued by the title and the cover (plus all the awards it won), so I decided to read it. And it was the BEST idea ever, I simply fell in love with this book!!

Neil Gaiman

1. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The only thing that I knew about this book before reading it was the fact that it’s by Neil Gaiman. This book has only 180 pages, so the synopsis can spoil things for it easily. Honestly I think you don’t even need to read the synopsis. The name and cover are intriguing enough on their own, plus it’s by Neil Gaiman so there is that as well.


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

tag

The Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Melissa @Book Nerd Momo to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out her blog!


1. Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel

Okay. Lets be clear about something: The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury was simply fantastic as a standalone. The story wrapped up beautifully and I loved how everything turned out to be. BUT I just need more Zahra and Aladdin in my life! I just want to read more about them and their adventures. I would love for even a novella, if not a whole book. (Oh, you should definitely read this book if you haven’t yet!)

The Forbidden Wish


2. Totally Should’ve Gotten A Spin-Off Series

WARNING: I’m totally going to ramble about Harry Potter for a bit.

There are sooo many spin-off series that I want from the Harry Potter series! (Like a lot of other people, probably.) I think I just want more and more from this world. Here are some spin-off series/books that I would love to have:

  • The Marauders Era – I would love to read about their adventures and how they all met. I would especially LOVE those books to be from Sirius’ point of view, as I would love to see the relationships and politics in a pure blood family. (Plus, he is one of my favourite characters so there is that as well.)
  • The Founders Era – I think the establishing of Hogwarts would be such an interesting story! After all, we have heard about the four Founders, but wouldn’t it be amazing to read about their adventures and lives?
  • Voldemort’s time at Hogwarts – I’m fascinated by teenage Voldemort (have always been) and how he established his following. It would really be interesting to read about, his backstory always intrigued me. Plus it would be fascinating to read from his point of view (both when he was sane and later as well).
  • Hogwarts a History – Ummm…I just REALLY want that book to exist! It’s referenced sooo many times throughout the Harry Potter series and I would love to have a copy of it as well. It would be amazing to have the whole history of Hogwarts in one place and be able to actually read it.

Okay…I have seriously rambled enough about Harry Potter. Moving on!


3. An Author Who Should Write More Books

The first person that came to my mind when I saw this question was Erin Morgenstern. The Night Circus is one of my all time favourite books, I simply ADORED everything about it. Her writing style is one of the most beautiful that I have ever encountered. Sadly she hasn’t written any other books yet. Though I’m hoping with each day that there will be an announcement that she is coming out with another book!

The Night Circus


4. A Character Who Totally Should’ve Ended Up With Someone Else

I really wanted Alina to end up with someone else. Or anybody else for that matter, other than the person she chose in the end. This is the only pairing where I’m VERY unhappy with the way things turned out to be. That has probably to do with the fact that I hated the person she picked. I don’t think I will ever get over this…Sigh. (I read this series years ago and it’s still bothering me a lot.)


5. Totally Should’ve Had A Movie Franchise

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin was such a fast and action packed book! The setting of the story is very interesting as well and I would love to see it on screen. I just have a feeling that this book would make an amazing movie! It’s definitely one that I would love to see. I have heard that the second book of this duology is amazing as well, but I have yet to read it so I can’t say anything about that yet.

Wolf by Wolf


6. Totally Should’ve Kept The Original Covers

The Diviners has one of the most beautiful covers that I have ever seen. The hardcover edition (which I own) is even more beautiful, as it has very pretty gold details under the dust-jacket. For some reason the publishers decided to change the covers for the other books in this series and all of them are beyond bad. Seriously, each is worse than the one before.

The Diviners


7. Totally Should’ve Stopped At Book One

This is kind of a cheat answer, as I haven’t actually read the rest of the series. Anyway, I read The Maze Runner by James Dashner and I remember enjoying it. (Though I didn’t love it and I had problems with it.) I was unsure whether I wanted to continue the series or not. A TON of people told me that the series only got worse and worse, so I decided to look up spoiler and I had to agree – this series just went downhill.

The Maze Runner


I TAG:

As always, if you have already done this tag or simply don’t feel like doing it just ignore me. No pressure! 🙂


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

award

Mystery Blogger Award

AwardI was nominated by the lovely Elsie @Reading Between Worlds for this award. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!

This award was originally created by Okoto @Okoto Enigma’s Blog.


THE RULES:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Answer the questions from the person who tagged you.
  • Tell your readers three things about yourself.
  • Nominate 10 – 20 people (let them know by commenting on their blog).
  • Set 5 questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • Share a link to your best post.

Elsie’s Questions:

  • What is your favourite genre?

My favourite genre is fantasy. It has always been and it probably will always be. I just love escaping the real world when I’m reading. Plus fantasy is very versatile in it’s sub-genre’s, which is something I love about it as well.

  • What book were you not expecting to enjoy but did?

Some books that I had to read for school fall into this category. Everything that I decide to read for myself I expect to enjoy, otherwise I wouldn’t be reading it in the first place.

  • What book were you expecting to enjoy but didn’t?

I’ll list a few books for this one, since I did the same for the previous question.

  • What book are you most anticipating the release of?
  • What is a book set in the place you are from?

I’m originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina (which is a small country in southeast Europe) and I have honestly not read that many books that take place here. Well, aside from a few classics that is.


Three facts about me:

  • I’m currently learning Japanese and Italian.
  • I hate the heat, so summer definitely isn’t my favourite time of the year.
  • I love listening to The Lord of the Rings movie soundtrack.

My best blog posts:

Okay. This is impossible to answer for me. So far I have posted over 210 posts on my blog. How in the world am I meant to chose the best one?! I’m usually indecisive when it comes to things like this, so that doesn’t help either. I guess I will just pick a few posts that got the most activity? Those would be considered my “best ones”.


Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

wrap up

I’m ALIVE!! || August Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up Green

I’m alive and I’m back!! I don’t know if anyone even noticed that I was gone. (Haha, probably not though!)

GIF

So…It’s been a while. It’s actually been 13 FREAKING DAYS since I have posted anything on my blog!! That hasn’t happened to me ever! Or rather not for the past year, since I have tried to be (at least a little bit) consistent with my posts.

Nothing bad happened, I just didn’t feel like blogging. I just got into a slump and didn’t do anything blogging related for this time period – no reading other peoples posts, replying to comments (sorry for the wait on that front) or anything really. But it’s healthy to take breaks from time to time and now I’m motivated again to blog!!

GIF

August passed by way faster than I thought it possible. I seriously have NO IDEA where the time went. August was an alright month, nothing particularly special happened. I just focused on myself, as July wasn’t the best month for me. I have been much better this month, which is always fantastic! 😀


Wrap Up

This month I mostly reread some of my favourite manga. In total I read 11 volumes of manga and a 700 page fantasy book – I’m really happy with how much I managed to read this month!


EragonEldest (Eragon #2) by Christopher Paolini

5 out of 5 stars

This is one of the slower fantasies that I have read – it reminds me quiet a lot of The Lord of the Rings (which is one of my all time favourites). Still, I enjoyed every moment of it.

I love Eragon and Saphira as characters, they are definitely my favourites in this series. Eragon has gotten so much character development in this book, it was simply fascinating to see. I find myself liking him more and more as I continue reading this series. The other characters are very interesting and I find myself wanting to know more about them – and hopefully I will as the series continues. The one character that seriously annoys me is Roran, I simply can’t stand him! (So reading from his point of view wasn’t that fun.)

I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and see how the story is going to wrap up!


I read the first 4 volumes of One-Punch Man.

This is a rather famous manga that I’m sure a lot of people have heard of (especially since the anime was VERY popular). It’s been ages since I read it and I have honestly missed all the characters, especially Saitama and Genos – so I decided to reread some of the manga this month! It was really amazing being back in this world, with these characters. One-Punch Man is such a good manga!


I also read the first 7 volumes of Haikyuu!!

I love sports anime and manga, I always have! Some of my all time favourite manga and anime fall under that genre. Haikyuu!! is definitely one of my all time favourite manga! I just love all the characters, the story is very interesting and find this manga to be very addicting (I really want to play volleyball again!). I just wanted to reread some of the beginning of this manga and ended up reading 7 volumes. No, I have no idea how that happened either.


Wrap Up

Wow. I didn’t think that I posted this few posts during August(Well, there is this one and there is the wrap up for July – which I don’t link in these.) I really didn’t do much blogging this month.

The Beauty and the Beast || Book Tag

Tag

I was tagged by two amazing people to do this tag. They were Beth @Reading Every Night and Aria @Snow White Hates Apples. Thank you both once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out their blogs!

Beauty and the Beast was actually my favourite Disney movie growing up. I asked my mom which one I used to watch the most and she said this one – “I had to watch it at least once a week” those were her exact words. So I’m very exited to be doing this tag now! Even though I was actually tagged ages ago, but I’m seriously the worst when it comes to keeping up with book tags and awards. (As you all should probably know by now.)


RULES:

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Mention the creator; Kirsty at Kirsty and the Cat Read.
  • Match a book to each of the songs/characters below.
  • Tag as many people as you like.

“Tale As Old As Time”
A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.

Morally grey characters and antiheroes.

I don’t know if this can count as a theme, but I’m counting it as one anyway. Morally grey characters and antiheroes are my favourite ones to read about! (Which you probably already know, as I keep mentioning this at every opportunity that I have.) There is just something compelling about them and they fascinate me. I would NEVER get bored reading about them.


Belle:
A book you brought for its beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.


Beast:
A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.

The Martian was a book that I didn’t know what to expect from. Honestly I didn’t have that high expectations for it, simply because science fiction wasn’t a genre that I read much from. Especially when it came to stories like this, where a character is trapped on another planet. The reason I decided to read this book was because the movie was coming out soon – I just randomly decided to pick it up. This book blew me away! I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, I even managed to finish it in one day.

The Martian


Gaston:
A book everyone loves that you don’t.

Okay, lets be real: There is no such thing as a book that everyone loves! No matter how popular a book is, there is going to be people who love it or hate it. I decided to go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell for this one, as it was one of the most hyped books at the time that I read it. Everyone seemed to love it and I kept getting it recommended. I didn’t enjoy it that much, I didn’t outright hate it – it wasn’t that horrible. I just didn’t find it to be as good as people said it was, plus I had some major problems with it as well.

Eleanor and Park


Lefou:
A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart.

The only character for this question that came to my mind was Leo Valdez from The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. (I actually had a hard time thinking of an answer for this one.) I honestly didn’t care that much about Jason in this first book, probably because I expected to read about Percy (who is one of my favourite characters EVER) but that didn’t happen. However, I completely adored Leo! He was definitely my favourite character from this book!

Percy Jackson


Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumière & Cogsworth:
A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.

A book series that helped me through some tough times was the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. The first time I read this series was when I was in elementary school (when I was around 13 or 14) during the summer holidays. I didn’t have many friends back then and I mostly spent my time alone at home, I was very lonely. (I just felt like I didn’t belong anywhere, in any friend group.)

Reading all the Harry Potter books during that summer helped me a lot, they made me very happy! Now, whenever I feel sad or down I tend to reread at least one of the books. They just always manage to lift my mood no matter what, and I love getting back into the  magical world of Harry Potter. This is definitely the perfect series for this question.


“Something There”
A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.

For this question I’m cheating a little bit. When I’m not enjoying a series I don’t continue reading it, so finding one that picks up as the books continue wasn’t possible for me. (Plus I tend to dislike the endings to trilogies, so there is that as well.) So instead I decided to go with a series that just keeps getting better with each book.

I adored Eragon, it was such a fun book. I really liked the characters and the world, plus it has dragons – as you may know I simply LOVE dragons!! The second book, Eldest, was even better. I enjoyed seeing all the character development and finding out more about the world was amazing as well. (Though this second book was a lot slower than the first, which I didn’t mind.) I’m currently reading Brisingr and so far I’m loving it – even more than the second one!! This is kind of a cheat answer, as I haven’t read the whole series but I’m still going with it. (Though I’m hopeful that I will love it as well.)


“Be Our Guest”
A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.

The first two characters that came to my mind were Zahra and Aladdin from The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury, so I’m going with the two of them. They are two of my all time favourite characters and I would love to get to meet them. I have a feeling that having them over for dinner would be a lot of fun as well! I would love to talk to them and hear about their adventures, the stories they grew up with and many more things. The more I think about this, the more I want to meet both of them!

Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!
