Annike: Hey guys, so we were tagged in The Mystery Blogger Award at the beginning of this year by The Book Prophet. Thank you so much to her for the tag, we’re very sorry we didn’t get onto it sooner but here we are today to complete it 🙂 The creator of this award was Okoto Enigma so thanks to you too! (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, I’m here today with a review of Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum, which is a book I only heard of recently and decided to give it a go. I was able to finish it in a single day but spent much of the day reading, haha, so here it is: (more…)
Hey guys it’s Zoe and today I am going to review a book I read in January as I haven’t really read many books this month and I think this one would be a good one to review for you all. I am going to be reviewing all the Never Never Series books by Colleen Hoover all as one as I felt they were more like 1 book that three small separate ones, so here we go:
Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.
What did you think of the main character/s?
I thought the main characters were really well written and well established however I seemed to connect with Silas a lot more than Charlie as he seemed very genuine and like he was actually trying to help whilst Charlie was a bit of a drama queen.
I would have to say Landon – Silas’ little brother would have been my favourite character as I loved the relationship between the brothers and he seemed to really care about Silas and was also really funny.
Least Favourite Character?
I’m going to have to say Silas’ dad or Charlie’s mum as they are both established for you not to like them and they both got a little bit annoying. I found Silas’ dad way too controlling and aggressive and Charlie’s mum was just all over the place and didn’t seem like she was helping the story develop at all (although I know she had a tough time).
Favourite book of the 3?
I would have to say book 1 as it established the story really well and it got me really engaged. To be honest because I read them all within 12 hours they kind of seem all the same rather than three books but when looking back at it I think the first one way the best plot wise.
“If you were a game, Silas, you’d be Monopoly. You just go on and on and everyone ends up cheating just to be over with it.” – I just find this quote so funny and is something Charlie would definitely say.
I’m not that sure how I feel about the cover, I mean it’s nice and well-designed but it isn’t really one that stands out at me all that much. All 3 covers are very similar but out of the three I would probably say the first is my favourite.
Did you like the way the book ended?
I would have to say the ending really let the series down, it was an epilogue a while after the story ended and I thought it was good what had happened in the years that had past but the ending just wasn’t that good and didn’t close the book like people would expect.
How would you rate it?
Truth be told this one took me a long time to rate. I waited like 2 weeks to figure out what to rate it but I finally decided on 4 stars as it was really good but definitely had a couple faults.
Well thats all, I thought I would do a quick review for you all. I would definitely recommend this book if you like mystery/romance/young adult books as it is a really easy and engaging read. Thanks for reading everyone and Annike and I will be back with another blog soon. x
Annike: Hey guys, we were tagged in this by The Book Prophet, a blog that we absolutely adore so make sure before reading this you go and give her blog a visit! I have Instagram but I’m not the biggest fan of it, however I love the look of this tag and can’t wait to get into it so let’s go!
Feed: Many people give a special theme to their Instagram feeds, or none at all. Are most of the books you read of the same genre, or do you like to mix it up?
Annike: Hmm good question. I read a lot more contemporary fiction than anything else and really enjoy most of them. I used to be a huge science fiction fan but have weaned off of that slightly and always find the little fantasy that I read to be amazing books so I guess I don’t really know where my genres are going to go. I almost always read YA though!
Filter: Instagrammers often put filters onto their photos to make them look vibrant and beautiful. Name a book with a stunning cover!
Following: On Instagram, users follow others to see what they post, and basically for a little mash-up of their lives. Name a book character whose steps you always enjoy following.
Followers: Many celebrities have millions of Instagram followers. Name a hyped-up book read by thousands that you were hesitant to read, but ended up devouring.
Definitely An Ember in the Ashes by Saraa Tahir. I know I literally bring this book up in every post but it was just so amazing that I have to haha 🙂
Bio: Instagram bios can be up to 150 characters long, and can be used to give some general information about yourself. Name a book with a catchy blurb that hooked you in.
I’m going to say This is Not a Drill by Beck McDowell. This book was about a shooting that happened in a classroom of kindergarten kids and it sounded like a really interesting fiction story. Even though it didn’t live up to my expectations the blurb definitely reeled me in.
Unfollow: Sometimes you’ll like someone’s feed at first, but then you lose interest and decide to unfollow them. Name a book you liked at first, but over time, the love wore off.
I used to absolutely LOVE Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne, however as the years have gone by I’m not really sure why I enjoyed it so much – seems like it had quite a few faults as well as the other books in the series.
Notifications: Whether you admit it or not, everyone loves and waits anxiously to see the pink notification button pop up at the bottom of their Instagram feed. Name an unreleased book that you’ve been anxiously awaiting.
I have definitely been anxiously awaiting the new Kasie West book – By Your Side but now that it is out (even though I still need to read it) I’m waiting for her next book already – Lucky in Love! 🙂
Story: Many Instagrammers love using Instagram’s Story feature to let their followers know what they’re currently up to. Name a book you’re currently reading!
I am actually currently reading heaps of books but here they are. Firstly, Being Sloane Jacobs which is going well so far but doesn’t seem like a stand out. The Book Thief which I’m determined to get through but not so keen on reading, The Mysterious Book Society which is a book I’m reading for the 2017 reading challenge as I loved it when I was younger. And finally, A Court of Thorns and Roses which I can tell from the first 50 or so pages that I’m going to really enjoy 🙂
Annike: Thanks for reading guys! If you want to do this tag, let me know and consider yourself tagged! This was a super fun tag to do so thank you so much to The Book Prophet for the opportunity.

Hey guys, here we are today with a wrap up of our month. January was a good reading month for both of us and here is what we got to and read! We also decided that instead of a usual paragraph to talk about the books we read we are going to put some of our books into the categories we chose, and we hope that makes it more enjoyable to read. (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, so here I am today with a review on a book that I mostly in the car on the way back from holidays and one that I bought myself after Christmas at Dymocks. I’d seen it around WordPress and Goodreads a lot, but wasn’t really sure about the blurb. However I’m so glad that I enjoyed it so much and it definitely exceeded my expectations. (more…)
Annike: Hey guys, so here I am today with a review on a book called Someone Else’s Summer.
