The Exact Opposite of Okay

by Laura Stevens

3.75-4 out of 5

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

So I would consider this to be my first completed book of the year, and it was an amazing one at that.

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Stevens is a novel (to be honest I don’t know what genre to put it in- contemporary/ coming of age?) about a girl called Izzy, who is an aspiring comedian and screenwriter who life begins to fall apart when nude photos of her are leaked on the internet.
Izzy feels her life crumble away, making her lose almost everything which is important to her.


5 Series That I'm Ashamed I Haven't Finished | Reading

February 26, 2018

So I have so many series on my tbr pile. Second books, third books, literally hundreds. When I saw that PolandBananasBooks also did this in a video I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do a post on my unfinished series

1. The Mortal Instruments- 

I spoilt myself majorly for this series. That as you can probably tell was  a massive mistake as now I can't find the motivation to finish the books. I can't even remember what book I got up to. Maybe book 3? I have no idea.

2. The Raven Boys- 

I enjoy this series, so much that I purchased the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater as well. I think that I need to read the last two books in these series, but there are so many other books I want to read.

3. The Throne of Glass Series- 

I used to lov the Throne of Glass Series. Seriously. I still do, but probably not as much anymore. I remember spending ages trying to read Heir of Fire to no avail, I can't even remember finishing it. At the time I wanted to read SJM but obviously I just couldn't find the motivation to finish up the series. I think I will try again soon though as I might try the Assassin's Blade.

4. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Trilogy?)-

This is constantly recommended by Katytastic.  I really want to try it but I haven't yet gotten a hold of it but I will read it in the future sometime. I haven't actually started this trilogy but the idea of it interests me and lots of people really love it so I would love to try it.

5. The Vampire Academy series- 

I read the first book, liked it, spoiled myself and haven't picked up the second book. I will though. I really want to carry on. I can't really remember what happens but I did watch the film so if anything I have a good idea of what was going on.


4 Artists that I am Currently Loving | Music

February 11, 2018

So today I want to share with all of you my music favourites.
I listen to a huge range of music. Sometimes you'll find me listening to classical, other times R&B, Rap... anything. I have expanded my musical range recently, so I wanted to share who and what I am
listening to.

I mainly listen to music on Spotify, which I have on both my phone and my laptop. I don't have Spotify premium because I think that when you use a laptop there aren't that many ads, so it's bearable. I feel that are lots more on the phone app version of Spotify.

All of these artists I have been listening to for quite a while and you could easily catch me listening to their entire album in one sitting, or while tidying or doing something mindless. I cannot listen to them while revising because I can't focus enough on my work and I would probably be too busy rapping along lol.


A Little Bit of Book Post | Books

February 08, 2018

So for Christmas, my lovely school Secret Santa got me a £10 voucher for Waterstones.

If you know me you'd probably have guessed that I was pretty excited by this gift. I love books, but I haven't treated myself to a novel or fiction book in ages, because;
a) My bookshelves are absolutely full of books.
b) I have a lot of books which I haven't read
and c) I am really busy and don't have much time.

However, during the Holidays, I went online to Waterstones and picked up two books from their website. I did click and collect and they were ready to pick up within two days, so here they are in all of their glory!
