I hate chemistry and here’s why AKA sorry!

It is like 2am at the moment and I am half asleep but I just wanted to say sorry for not posting today because I just had to spend a good five hours on my Chem homework which literally just drained all the energy away from me. Hopefully I can read through all of your lovely Thursday posts tomorrow (I’m sad I couldn’t see the Book Travellingg Thursdays posts because I really like  them) and a nice post should be coming your way soon.

For now a nap.

I’ll write soon.

WWW Wednesday!

Hello, hello, hello guys! SO how’s your Wednesday been? Mine has been very chill and relaxed which is great and I got some new books which is always so exciting!

On with the post and you know the drill, here are the three questions I’ll be answering:

What are you currently reading?

What have you read previously?

What books you are planning to read?

Let’s get to it!


What are you currently reading?

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins– The movie is coming out really soon so how could I not reread this. I am one of the few people I feel that really really liked this book and how it ended the trilogy. I think people feel that it isn’t the Hunger Games because there’s no hunger games, but I still feel that it is full of action and tension and drama!

What have you read previously?

More Than This by Patrick Ness- I literally finished this a few hours back and I absolutely LOVED IT! The ending left me wanting more and to find out what happens to our pretty likable cast of characters. There are still so many questions I have, CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS?!

What books you are planning to read?

Legend by Marie Lu- I haven’t read a fantasy-esque dystopian in a while so I was thinking of picking this book up. It’s rather short so hopefully it will be a fast paced read.


What have you been reading for the past week? Comment below and link your WWW Wednesday posts if you want!

A Bookish Journey- Encouraging Thunder Award

This is such a slow week for reading! That’s why my blog has been full of fluffy and hopefully fun posts for you to read. I swear next week will be better!

But anyway, I was nominated for the Encouraging Thunder Award by Paige @ Paige By Paige and I insist that you check out her blog because it fantastic! Thanks for tagging me!


Okay so the only question for this award is: Why did you start blogging?

As I said when I commented on Paige’s post, I have not answered this question really. Only a sentence here or there, but I feel like I should explain myself, you know, lay down the foundations now about my blog and why it exists.

I have always been a avid reader. With a library being literally fifteen minutes away, whenever I could drag my mum with me to the library I would and when I could be trusted to make the fifteen minute journey (there were many dangerous roads I can assure you) with my older sister I would when the day was sunny enough. I didn’t know the word was haul when I was checking out seven books at a time and most of the time I only read two of those books.

But I clearly remember loving having books and reading them (even though I got easily distracted by many other things).

During primary school, year 5 I think, I used to stay inside with my best friend and read and I can’t even remember what book. I was so engrossed in it I would not go outside to enjoy the rare British sunshine! When I started secondary school my school had an LRC (Learning Resource Center)  which was a boost in my reading for about two years and then I found YouTube and all of my leisure time was spent either watching YouTubers or talking about YouTubers.

I kind of discovered book blogs and Booktube at the same time so I don’t have a nostalgic preference and I discovered these two amazing worlds in the middle of September

During the end part of this year I started getting into reading again and I have loved going back to books. Before I was reading books sporadically, each novel three stars, but now I have discover brilliant and amazing novels just in a few months!

After checking out a few BookTubers and realising that I do not have a confidence to BookTube, I came up with the great idea of making a blog. When people say making a blog is hard work they are not lying. Even though I am loving being in this friendly community, surrounded by fellow book nerds, this is a hardworking ‘job’.

But one thing is for certain- I wouldn’t change it for the world.
