Book Tag | The A-Z of Book Bloggers

It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag and I loved the look of this A-Z of Book Bloggers tag that imyril recently did. The tag was originally created by the Perpetual Page Turner.

Author you’ve read the most books by

As much as it pains me to say it I think it might actually be J.K Rowling because of the Harry Potter series, but if not then it would be George R.R Martin thanks to the huge ASOIAF series. I would definitely love for this to change to an author that I actually really love :’)

Best sequel ever

This is such a hard one for me because, as I’m sure we are all aware of by now, I suck at series and hardly ever get past that first book. So… I don’t think I can answer this (yet) until I discover more sequels!

I started Tone of Voice by the wonderful Kaia Sønderby today and oh my heart. I adored Failure to Communicate and I can’t even explain how warm it made my heart when I rejoined Xandri Corelel on her adventures. I can’t wait to see what she gets up to in this book ❤

 

Drink of choice whilst reading

My reading drink of choice really depends on what time of the day it is and how I’m feeling. If it’s in the morning or early afternoon I’ll probably be drinking tea, but if it’s the evening or on a warm afternoon then I’ll probably be drinking diet coke. Either way, these are my two staple drinks.

Wrap Up | January 2019

Wrap Up | January 2019

Thanks to January’s late-a-thon, 2019 is off to a pretty good start. Although I’ve been horrifically busy with my PhD application and starting a new job I was able to get a fair few overdue ARCs finished up as well as (finally) posting to a reasonably consistent level. Thank you to all of you who have been cheering me along my PhD application journey and leaving such ace comments on my posts this month 💚

State of the ARC |#6 Late-a-thon

State-of-the-ARC

State of the ARC is a monthly meme at Avalinah’s Books meant to motivate you to finish up all your long overdue ARCs (Advanced or Early Reader Copies).

Welcome to the first State of the ARC of 2019 and, thanks to Destiny’s late-a-thon, my ARC reading is off to a pretty good start! I’ve also received some amazing ARCs recently so I’m very excited to see how my State of the ARC progresses throughout the year!

WWW Wednesday | 30th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

This week started off as a great reading week but ended up with a bit of a reading slump due to some issues I’m having with one of my current reads. I’m also pretty tired from juggling working part time, studying, writing my PhD applications and trying to have some other sense of life outside of these things. Finding time to read is hard and my brain is very tired!
