Books As Outfits

So I don’t know if everyone has seen but on twitter there was a whole trend with books as outfits and I saw so many beautiful ones that it made me actually change out of my pyjamas and do some myself!

So I thought I would share with you all on here too because I am actually really proud of how they came out!

So here are some of my favourite books as outfits:

Audiobook Recommendations

So last year I really got into audiobooks. I found that I was able to reread my favourite books without having to feel guilty about the unread books on my shelves and wow it was a life changer!

I have loved using audiobooks to read especially as I get motion sickness and cannot look at a book or my phone while travelling and it means I can still read while cooking or working!

So I thought that as it has helped me so much I would share some of my favourite audiobooks.

1 The City of Brass and The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty – Obviously this book would be on here! But no seriously guys, the audiobook is absolutely amazing! The narrator does such a great job of sucking you right into the story!

2 Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo – This is a full cast! I loved this audiobook so much!

3 Fight Like a Girl by Clementine Ford – Clementine reads this herself and it is so good. She is witty and sarcastic and it makes it a really fun read listening to her

4 The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – I really enjoyed rereading the books by listening to them!

5 An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir – There’s a narrator for each point of view character and it makes it such a thrilling read. I’m listening to book 2 at the moment and I am enjoying it even more as an audiobook!

6 PS. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern – Listening to it made me sob even more than when I read it.

7 Invisible Women by Caroline Criado-Pérez – Such a powerful book and even more so when you listen to it

8 The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – It’s even more of a fun read when you listen to the audiobooks!

9 Caraval by Stephanie Garber – I actually enjoyed it more as an audiobook!

10 Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge – This book is such a necessary read and is even more powerful when you listen to it.

I love seeing bromances in books so much! The love and banter between them is so great to see. I decided that I am going to share some of my favourite bromances in books and on TV as I have some that I love from my favourites shows too.

So here is my favourite bromances:

1 Dorian and Chaol from Throne of Glass – I love them two so much and all I wanted to see in KoA was their reunion

2 Arthur and Merlin from Merlin – omg these two are my absolute faves! Their banter and sass and how they secretly do care for each other. *chefs kisses*

3 Will and Jem from The Infernal Devices – My favourite shadowhunters! I loved their relationship so much.

4 Toni and McGee from NCIS – I love watching old episodes with them both in it and their banter.

5 Jesper and Kaz from Six of Crows – Not the most obvious one but they do care for each other (no matter how much Kaz would deny it)

6 Sherlock and Watson from BBC Sherlock – Love this show so much because of their relationship

7 Percy and Grover from Percy Jackson & the Olympians – They have an empath link! Their friendship is the sweetest!

8 Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli from Lord of the Rings – These three were my faves in the film! Especially Gimli and Legolas!

9 Darrow and Sevro from Red Rising – I loved how they always had each others back in the books no matter what.

10 Spock and Kirk from Star Trek – I loved seeing their friendship grow and how much they ended up trusting each other.

Who are you favourite bromances?

Friday Favourites – Fictional Families

This was hosted by Something of the Book who created this tag out of a love for lists. Now Geeky Galaxy is taking over the tag. There are different topics for us all to be able to take part and you can find the prompts here. There isn’t a specific number of favourites so it’s entirely up to you how many you share.

This weeks topic is about fictional families and I love seeing fictional families. I especially love this trope as my friends are basically my family too and my sisters are my best friends too so I think it’s so important to show that family can be so different for each person and not just the traditional parent child etc.

So here are my favourite fictional families:

Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan – This series shows such a wonderful found family and how complex it can be and it was just amazing to see.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – I love the Rampion crew so much and how they become a family!

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi – I love how they look out for and support each other and how they are understanding of each others differences.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I adore the Dregs so much and their banter is the best!

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart – I have a really close relationshipwith my sisters too so it was so great to see how the sisters were together in this book and how they looked out for each other but also argued like sisters do.

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty – I love the Qahtani siblings! They have such interesting dynamics and it’s such a complex relationship between them especially the brothers because of them being a ruling family.

So here are some of my favourite fictional families. What books have some of your favourites?

This week I’m going to share some of my favourite squads! One of my favourite things in books is when there is group of characters who end up having to work together and then become friends and more!

So here are some of my favourites:

1 Six of Crows – The Dregs are my absolute favourites! They’re all so different and you wouldn’t think they would work together but they are amazing!

2 We Hunt the Flame – I love the zumra! I caanot wait to see more of them in the next book!

3 The Illuminae Files – With each book we meet a new set of characters and I fell in love with each and every one of them

4 The Never Tilting World – This was different in that there are two groups and they meet at the end so I cannot wait to see how they work together in the next book!

5 The Tiger at Midnight – An assassin and a soldier from opposite sides team up to save their countries and it is everything!

6 Nyxia – I loved the whole group in this book and I am afraid for their lives because I haven’t read the last book yet
