lovin it; getting back on track.

My friends

I feel as though I have to be luckiest person on the planet, and I know it sounds extremely cheesy and ridiculous but I genuinely don’t know what I would do without them. I have had a brilliant week filled with walks, movie nights and holiday planning. It’s been one of those weeks that have filled me with joy, so my cup runneth over.

I can’t express how much I love them all and how grateful I am to have them in my life, without them, who knows what kind of person I would be right now.


This year me and my closest friends from uni will be making the trip down to London for YALC! I am so excited and happy that I will get to experience everything that is going on, meet some of my favourite authors and have jolly good time running through the streets of London.

Our tickets are all booked and travel has all been arranged, and I physically can’t put into words how excited I am and how fun I imagine it will be.

The Throne of Glass series

I have recently marathoned all of these books, including the prequel, and I just can’t stop thinking about them and the characters, I can not wait for the next book to come out so I can delve into the world again. I love the way the whole of the story arc is constructed throughout the books, and the character’s growth. I adore it all. I have dreams about them, I was that immersed into the story.

If you haven’t read this series, what are you waiting for? You need to start reading right now.


lovin’ it; it’s all coming back.

Reading is back on the top of my list, the sun has been high in the sky and I have been sunning myself with a book, and life has been good. Don’t worry its not all books I have been loving.

1. The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon

I have just reread The Bone Season and read The Mime Order for the first time, and I am so in love with this series I can’t even put it into words. If you haven’t read this series and you like YA fantasy, pick it up, you really won’t regret it!

2. The sunshine

I know, I know what a generic thing to write, but I really believe that along with the brilliant writing of Samantha Shannon it has brought me out of my slump, and I’m finally enjoying reading again. So thank you sunshine!

3. Charity shop finds

I found this exact collection in a little shop for a grand total of £2.25, and I squealed I was that excited. I have often picked up little bargains here and there, but this really made me happy and has put me in a really good for the entirety of this week.

That’s it folks!

‘lovin it; a little bit of everything except for books

I know a book blog that hasn’t got a book to include in her weekly favourites, but I haven’t been loving reading recently. I’m in utter sloth mode with reading, hence why there has been no reading updates for ages, but I have been loving different things this week.

1. Game of Thrones

I have to mention this. How could I not? I adore this show. I have only watched the first episode, not out of loyalty to anyone but because I physically couldn’t wait until May 10 for the next one. Plus I kind off like the anticipation waiting for the next one and not knowing what’s going to happen. I love all the characters, but my absolute favourites are Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister. Who are your favourites? But no spoilers please…

2. Blogging again

quote 17

I have loved getting back into the swing of things, I feel as though the break did me a world of good and I’m truly enjoying writing content for this blog again. It feels freeing knowing that I don’t have to read a book for a certain day, that I have alternate posts for things that aren’t set in stone. I don’t have to worry if I have had a bad week reading or writing because I know that I have everything in hand. So my second love of the week is my blog, and blogging.

3. Comfy clothes and ‘normal’ tv

comfy clothes

This week I have strayed away from Netflix favourites and sat on the sofa with my partner and chill, writing in my notebooks, blogging, editing photos, doing all the things that I have missed. All without the worry of keeping up with what’s happening on TV and within a series. Its been nice, I have had conversations that are usually lost and I’ve actually taken an interest in something other than TV. I might even have to limit my Netflix intake per week.

So that’s that for this week, let me know what your favourites are!
