If you've been following my blog for a while you will know that my first love when it came to 'adult' fiction was crime. I lived for the mystery aspect, never quite knowing who had committed the crime. I loved the books that made me feel like I was a part of the murder investigation,… Continue reading Murder Mystery – Top 5 Saturday
Hi guys! Time for another Top 5 Saturday and this one is based around 'magical realism' books. I kind of had an idea of what this was but I googled it just to be sure, so just in case anyone wants a definition: Magical Realism is a style of fiction that paints a realistic view… Continue reading Magical Realism – Top 5 Saturday!
I don't know about you guys but I am SUCH a sucker for a pretty cover. In fact I would say that around 30% of the books on my shelves were picked up for the cover alone. Does a pretty cover ensure a good book, not always but there have only been a few instances… Continue reading It’s B E A Utiful! Top 5 Saturday
Tell me. Do you prefer series or standalones? I have a certain amount of love for both but series/trilogies will always have a special place in my heart. With trilogies there is sooo much more room for exploration of all the amazing worlds author's creates, potential to see characters growth, and cliffhangers! This weeks Top… Continue reading Three is the magic number! Top 5 Saturday
This right here! This is my kinda post. I live for folklore and mythology in books and love nothing more that learning all about new cultures, my one problem... there was no way I was going to be able to narrow this down to 5, so I may have cheated. The book below are some… Continue reading Books inspired by Mythology – Top 5 Saturday
This is another Top 5 Saturday that made me realise that, although I love a good spy drama/movie, I have read very few books with characters that are spies, not the traditional kind anyway, the 'bond like' spies all suave and lethal and likely to blow things up. So this post is going to be… Continue reading Shaken not Stirred – Top 5 Saturday
This weeks Top 5 Saturday is all about... you guessed it, Mermaids! I have been a fan of mermaids since I was a little girl, and I still know all the words to all the songs to the Disney musical. I've always kind of loved the idea that there is something hidden under the sea,… Continue reading Under the Sea – Top 5 Saturday
And were back! This weeks ( well actually last weeks) top 5 Saturday prompt was Dystopian books and this post will focus on my all time favourites. Some of these books, if read now, may have hit a little close to home, but at the time they dragged me into worlds I couldn't imagine existing,… Continue reading What does the future hold? Top 5 Saturday!
We all have favourite authors right? The ones whose books we buy without reading the premise, whose books are our favourite re-reads, insta-picks that no matter the cost you will have that authors book on release date & ALL the special editions, the ones whose books feel like coming home when you open the pages.… Continue reading Books by my favourite authors – Top 5 Saturday!
This weeks Top 5 Saturday is all about standalone books. I love a good standalone, there's something comforting about reading them, knowing that whatever happens the story will come to a close before the end, there will be no cliffhangers, no plot holes left unanswered, it will simply end. I'm all for a good series,… Continue reading All By Myself – Top 5 Saturday!
