Questions & Answers:

What books are you currently reading?

Well I am currently in the middle of the Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight. I am focusing on my Cerulean City: Cascade Badge which is a book that might make you cry… That being said, I am currently reading All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven! I am 266 pages in, and I haven’t cried yet… but we will see.
All The Bright Places

What’s the last book you finished?

The last book I finished was Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, which I have reviewed already if you have read it and would like to know my thoughts! Non-Spoiler though, I really enjoyed this book, it was an entertaining read. I definitely recommend this book to people who loved The Hunger Games!

Favourite book you have read this year?

Easy… Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! I have also reviewed this one, if you have read it and would like to know my thoughts, feel free to click on the link! This book was just ahead of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater which I also loved. The thing that pushed Illuminae over the edge was the amazing writing style through memo’s and IM’s and surveillance footage. I have never read a book like Illuminae, and Gemina is on the top of my highly anticipated reads for the second half of the year.


What genre have you read most this year?

The genre I have most reached for this year would be Young Adult! I have been reading some amazing young adult books and I have heaps more to keep me going through the rest of the year!

What genre have you read least this year?

Contemporary… I don’t read a lot of contemporary because they break my heart too much. I will be attempting to pick up more contemporary books at some stage… maybe next year!

What genre do you want to read more of?

Fantasy, I definitely want to get on the fantasy band wagon! I have been reading some fantasy, but not as much as I would like to!

What’s the last book you bought?

My last book purchase was My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier. This book follows Che and his 10 year old sister Rosa who just happens to be a psychopath…. This book is a physiological thriller, written by one an Australian author, so of course I had to purchase it immediately!


What book are you saving up to buy next?

There are so many books I want, so it is very hard to pick just one… Alight… I would like to purchase The Lunar Chronicles Box Set by Marissa Meyer that comes out in October this year I believe. Please see below the beauty that is the box set!

How many books did you check out last library visit?

I haven’t checked out any books from the library… My last purchase from Booktopia was 24 items though… Does that count.

What’s a book you can’t wait to read?

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! My excitement for this book release is incredible. Illuminae had be hooked, I feel like Gemina will do the same! Two more months wait!


What’s a series you’d recommend to everyone?

A series I would recommend to everyone is The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare!

This is by far one of my favourite series, the shadowhunter world Cassandra Clare built is absolutely amazing and I love all the characters and their relationships. I started reading City of Bones three years ago, and then I flew through the rest of the series straight away.


Who’s an author you’re hoping writes more?

Suzanne Collins! Because The Hunger Games Trilogy just wasn’t enough from her!


A few books your heart adores?

A few books my heart adores are The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins, The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater and of course the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, especially the Illustrated Edition by Jim Kay, it is absolutely beautiful.


What series’ coming conclusion makes you sad?

The conclusion of The Half Bad trilogy makes me sad… Every book is getting better and better! I am so excited and nervous for the last book of this series!

Half Wild

  1. I know I already have a ton of tags, but I love this one! I MUST do it! I hope someone tags me for it so I remember to.
    I LOVE your owl! Did you draw that?!? It’s a-mazing! Absolutely breathtaking!
    I’m a big fantasy reader, too. I keep seeing all these contemporary reviews, and they sound great, but I just can’t get enough fantasy, and I’m just unable to make myself read a contemporary novel. So I get what you’re saying. 🙌


    1. Well guess what? I JUST TAGGED YOU! Hopefully the pingback worked… I never know if it is or not!

      Unfortunately the owl isn’t mine, it was just one of the themes wordpress offered, I do have a proper banner and stuff made up but I am terrible at adjusting the site, so I will keep the owl for now haha.

      I just feel like contemporary doesn’t have a lot of happy endings… and I need happy endings! I am too much of a crier when there isn’t a ending that I enjoy.

      1. Lol!! Thank you!!
        I know: I’m a sucker for happy endings (I almost threw Allegiant through a window, I was so pissed). I used to read these books when I was younger because that was all that was available: they were by Lurleen McDaniel, and they had titles like, “Too Young To Die,” and I was bawling my eyes out. But every other book was either Fear Street (I read those, too) or Sweet Valley High. There wasn’t a lot of YA lit then. So I’m psyched to have the chance to read “happier” books than some of the depressing contemporaries out there.
        Thanks for tagging me. 😊


  2. Illuminae! I need to read it as soon as possible! It’s been on my to-buy list for too long now…
    Also, «My sister Rosa» sounds very interesting! I love thrillers and everything crime related.

    Thank you so much for the shout out 🙂
