⋘Find a book for each of your initials.⋙

My initials are O E S and W.


only ever yours

Only Ever Yours is the only book on my shelf starting with O! Only Ever Yours is a very dark and honest novel that I highly suggest you sink your teeth into!


eleanor and park

I read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell towards the beginning of 2015, and I still strongly believe it will make my top 10 of the year multitudes of books later.


since you've been gone

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson is another read I absolutely loved. I loved the pace, the characters, the plot, and the overall message. Generally, it was pretty amazing.


Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)

I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about this book on my blog before! There’s a first for everything! Anyway, Where She Went is Gayle Forman’s sequel to her bestseller If I Stay. This book popped into mind because we’ve recently been looking at the idea of If I Stay in my English class to base creative writing on.

Count your age along your bookshelf. Which book is it?

15 books along my bookshelf takes me to…

MatildaA personal childhood favourite, Matilda is Roald Dahl’s bestselling novel portraying 5-and-a-half-year-old titular character Matilda who is astronomically smart. This story has inspired a movie, and many many children.

Pick a book in your city, state, country.

As I live in England, and I don’t know of any books set in my city…

clockwork angel

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare is set in Victorian London – what’s not to love?!

Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to.

it's kind of a funny story

NYC! Not just NYC, but the beautiful, lived-in side of it Craig presents in It’s Kind of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini.

Pick a book that’s your favourite colour.

Pastel yellow.

grow up

Grow Up by Ben Brooks is possibly the funniest book I’ve ever read. Warning: it is mainly comprised of British humour…

Which book do you have the fondest memories of?


The Boy with the Bread. Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was my fictional boyfriend for a solid 2 years. I like everything he stands for, and find myself empathizing with him on many levels. Yes, Mockingjay killed me.

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

northanger abbey

Most recently, anyway. My problem reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen included how impossibly tedious I found the first half. However, I persisted, because I had heard how great the remainder is. I am very glad I did, for the second half is great, yet it was extremely hard to get through half A.

Which book on your T.B.R. pile gave you the biggest sense of accomplishment?

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is the novel to which I lost my classic literature virtue. No regrets.

    Eleanor and Park, Since You’ve Been Gone, Where She Went and The Hunger Games I have read. Eleanor and Park is AMAZING and I enjoyed Where She Went, though I definitely preferred the first book – If I Stay. Have you seen the movie? And thank you for the nomination!!

      I definitely preferred If I Stay – whilst Where She Went was good, I kind of felt the separation idea came from no where.
      I have seen the movie, and there were so many parts I loved! I loved the music and the flashbacks. Overall I’d say I enjoyed it, but then again loads of people said it was too cheesy which I can totally see.
      Have you seen it?
      & you’re very welcome! 🙂

        I definitely agree it could’ve been made better. I also think some of the casting choices were a little…”she’s famous she’ll be best”, if you know what I mean.
