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.

Holidays! 

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.

Reader Problems.

As a reader I love diving into a new world and falling in love with new characters and learning all about their flaws, their loves and everything that makes them, them. Its the exciting. But long series cause major problems for me. I love each and every character so much that every time I want to read a series I have to re-read each book of that series. So because I want to read Blood of Olympus I have forced (not really forced if I enjoy it is it?) myself to re-read the whole series including the Percy Jackson five. It’s crazy to go through all this effort for one book?

The reason I do it? I do it so that I don’t miss anything, any kind of character development or romance that I missed on the clues. If I want to enjoy a series I want to enjoy it as a whole and without holes in my knowledge. So if I have to spend half the month re-reading books that I love instead of my shiny new books so be it, because I know that after it all I will enjoy the new book so much more.
