Jack Vincent- From Night Owls
Jack is a really sweet guy! He's the type who whenever you think of him, you smile. 

Rhysand- From A Court of Mist and Fury
I don't even know what to say. He is so incredible. At the start of the series I really liked Tamlin and was so confused as to why everybody seemed to love Rhysand. Then after reading the second book, I realised how amazing Rhysand is. AND he is the High Lord of the Night Court. 

Park Sheridan- From Eleanor And Park
I've always preferred Park over Eleanor. He is such a giver in his relationship with her, so kind. 

Ben Fletcher- From Boys Don't Knit
I love that Ben embraces his feminine side in the book. Plus he is so funny and he would be so great to be around.

Rudy Steiner- From The Book Thief
The ever so sweet, ever so wonderful Rudy Steiner also has to make this list! I literally love the Book Thief so much it is featured in all of my Feature Follow Fridays.

Also thank you so much to Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison from Alison Can Read for the feature!

Back to School

11 School Bag ideas | Back To School Essentials

August 22, 2016

In Collaboration with the lovely Emily of Emily Ellen. To see her first post, click here

Top Row: Left to Right

Bottom Row: Left to Right

Hello Everyone!

So school is now (unfortunately) approaching, pretty quickly as a matter of fact. Even if you are dreading school like the plague (like me) then at least you can hopefully get excited about buying school supplies! That is something I personally really enjoy, as there is something about having 26 coloured pens which match makes me very happy <3

Anyways, this is the first of one of my collaboration posts with the amazing Emily of Emily Ellen- her post is on Back to School Beauty Essentials and is linked here

Every year it is super important to make sure that you have a quality and long lasting school bag which can last throughout the year. (trust me, I know all too well). With my school and I think most other schools they tend to ask you to have a plain or dark coloured bag, so I thought I would devise a few options for you all to pick!  I also did my best to check each bag to figure out whether it would fit standard sized books and folders inside, so they all pretty much should. They are also all a range of prices from £16- £45, so you can get something that you like and will match your budget. Let me know what you think!

My Favourite Book Opening Quotes | Feature Follow Friday

August 19, 2016


The Feature and Follow is the premium BLOG HOP of Book Bloggers. Running for over five years, the Feature and Follow’s goal is to promote the book blogging and author community to join together and support each other – even if it is just through a simple follow.

What is your favorite opening scene? 

A man being hugged by a girl, behind them a pile of books is on fire.
First the colours.
Then the humans.
That’s how I usually see things.
Or at least, how I try.

*** HERE IS A SMALL FACT ***
You are going to die.

-Markus Zusak

The Book Thief (otherwise known as one of my all time favourite books) starts with this pretty iconic statement.




Gram is worried about me. It’s not just because my sister Bailey died four weeks ago, or because my mother hasn’t contacted me in sixteen years, or even because suddenly all I think about is sex. She is worried about me because one of her houseplants has spots.

-Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, another one of my all time favourite novels.

5 Things You Must Not Know About Me

August 10, 2016

Home Office, Laptop, Notebook, Startup, Web Design
"I could find another you in a minute, matter fact he'll be here in a minute, babyyyy"

Sorry! I have a slight (HUGE) obsession with Beyonce.

I hope that you are all well! I did the TMI tag a while ago, but I wanted to do a fun post just about myself today. I haven't really seen anyone do this, but I wanted you guys to learn a little more about me! (that sounded very vain in my head, not intentional!)
I haven't actually planned out what I want to say in this post, so it is really going to be a go with the flow thing, but I hope that you all enjoy!

1. I Wish That I could Read more books
I watch a lot of Booktube, and I see people hauling like 600 books (slight exaggeration) and they can basically read half of those books by the end of the next month. I used to be like that, always finishing a book every 3 or 4 days, and being able to read nearly 100 books in one year, but as I have gotten older, I have begun to read slower :(
However all the books that I am reading I really like, I just wish that I had more time that I could dedicate to reading nowadays!

2. I am a huge bargain hunter
I am always researching to find a new deal, a good price on this, that or the other. I find looking for a good deal pretty fun, as well as knowing that I bought something for the best price there is out there!

3. I love languages
I currently learn French and German, but i really want to continue and study more languages, like Italian and Twi (what they speak in some areas of Ghana, where I am from). I find studying languages and different cultures so much fun, and I feel like you learn so much when you learn a new language. One day I'd love to read books in different languages and travel the world.

4. I hate eating tomatoes
Okay this one is really random but it came to my head. I love loads of fruits, but I absolutely hate eating raw tomatoes. By that I only mean tomatoes by themselves. Tomato sauce, ketchup and everything else I will eat. Tomatoes, no way. I will touch them if they haven't been pureed, sauteed, stewed or fried.

5. I love doing relays.
I am a secret (or not so secret anymore) die-hard runner. I love the olympics and sport, but mainly track athletics. I love short distance running and watching and competing in sprints. Its just my thing! Relays are probably my favourite. I probably look like a right goon when I do them and I shout out names like its my mum telling me to come tidy up but I have so much fun!#

I hope that you have learnt some things about me today, however random they are!
