Well here’s one I didn’t think I’d ever get round to reading until suddenly everybody started raving about it again and my interest was newly peaked.

I hardly knew what this was about going into it, so I didn’t really have any expectations. I was very intrigued to see how it went.

Sweets, treats, and also things…not so nice in the Queen’s childhood | Heartless by Marissa Meyer

heartless

For some unbeknownst reason, we over here in the UK have to wait until February for Heartless to be released. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC, and so now my review is coming at a strange in between place – where the US readers can relate (if they’ve read it), and the UK lot – as well as anywhere else it’s not released yet – are still waiting eagerly.

I find that kind of interesting, for some reason?

Cover Reveal: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

heartless cover reveal

GUYS. THERE’S BEEN A COVER REVEAL FOR ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS FOR THIS YEAR.

IT’S HERE.

AND IT’S EXCITING.

AND I ACTUALLY DID KNOW THIS WAS HAPPENING WHICH IS WHY THE CAPS LOCK ARE IN ORDER.

No but seriously, I somehow missed that there would be a cover reveal for Heartless today, so when I saw Marissa Meyer’s tweet about it, I sort of freaked out slightly.

So here’s a spontaneous completely-not-planned-on-my-schedule blog post with the cover, and my thoughts!

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The wrath and the dawn

So here we are…my first book review of 2016! I started this one just before the new year and finished it yesterday, and I don’t think I could’ve chosen a better book to lead the new year in.

Plus can I just say I LOVE the cover ❤

The story reminds me of this pendant I have hanging on my wall of a woman smelling a rose (people who have read it will probably know why) so I decided to add it to the photo below.

So now that I’ve rambled on, here’s the review!

December Book Haul

December Haul

So it’s just been Christmas!

I hope everyone had a really lovely day yesterday ❤ I know I did – mine was amazing actually, I got so many surprises that just blew my mind! The main one being…A LAPTOP!!!! I asked for one for my 18th birthday in February but my dad decided to surprise me by giving me one yesterday! Now it will be easier for me to blog since I won’t have to use my dad’s computer on the rare occasions he’s not on it to schedule loads of posts ahead of time 😀

Anyway – back to the post.

Instead of this being just a Christmas haul, I decided to make it my December Haul, because I bought a few books before Christmas. All together there are 17 BOOKS! (EEEEEEKKKK!)

*side note: I apologize for the low quality photographs. I took them late at night on my phone camera so they aren’t as good as I’d have hoped*

So without further ado, I’ll get on with the haul!
