The Lover Book Tag

If you know anything about me, you'd know that I adore Taylor Swift. I first fell in love with her music when I listened to Speak Now on repeat in 2011 and was fully whisked away when I saw her on the Red tour in 2014. I've never been to a concert where the artist displayed such glamour and showmanship, all while providing gorgeous vocals throughout. If I wasn't obsessed before, that concert definitely changed that.

Defy Me // a rambly spoilery review (spoilers tagged!)

Everyone knows how obsessed I am with the Shatter Me books, so it hurts me to say that Defy Me was definitely the weakest in the series thus far. Saying this, I'm not writing this series off! The second half seriously redeemed the whole novel for me, and I'm still eagerly anticipating the finale.

10 Reasons Why Fantasy is my Favourite Genre

Those are the books that have the blurbs and covers that always immediately grab me. Even if an aspect of the book falls short, there is almost always something redeeming about most Fantasy novels for me, whether it be the well-crafted world, unique concept, dynamic characters, or exquisite writing.

But what is it that draws us to Fantasy narratives? In this post, I will be listing just some of the things that draw me to this magical genre.

Bookshelf Tour!

Last year I bought a new Ikea Billy bookshelf, but it only recently came to my attention that I never shared any photos since I built it. So I decided that now was the perfect time to do a bookshelf tour and reveal all of my shelf organisation secrets.
