If You Loved, then Try. . . book recommendations – as usual, i’m flooding your tbr

if you loved


I’m so excited to share more recommendations with you guys because, let’s be real, that’s all I have going for my personality right now and given the circumstances of the world we are living in, we all need more reading material

so, I have compiled a list of 10 books to read if you liked a specific, more popular title. I can’t PROMISE that you’re going to love the recommendations bc honestly, I’m not a mind reader BUT i can promise they share similar vibes, themes, and ideas.

alright, on with the post, because i have nothing else of substance to say.

hiiiiiiiii book friends!!

In my absolute fashion, I am 5 months late on publishing this post and i considered staying hidden in my hole of sadness and unproductivity and not post at all, but you see, even i am not that pathetic. and also ok, maybe I already had the graphics drawn and there was no point in wasting my work

i miss you all VERY VERY VERY much and i will have an entire post dedicated to my disappearance and hopefully some ways to stop that from happening again. but until then, know that I’ve missed you terribly and am so happy to be back!!

and now without anymore delay, i present to you, my…..

Much More than Top 10 Books of 2019 (and of course the Worst books too)

a quick look at my stats:

Top 10 Sequels that Ended Second Book Syndrome

tuesday top 10s final

hello friends.

this was strangely difficult post to put together??? im not sure if that’s bc im standalone trash or bc i basically never finish series (what a great realization to come to) but either way i had to scrounge my ‘read’ shelf more than three times before i could slap this together

im a very firm believer that second book syndrome is an epidemic that strikes the reading world from time to time and its very rare to find books that defy this phenomenon

but, i got you, and so here is a list of the top 10 books (the order isn’t written in stone, im a very indecisive person) that ended second book syndrome and were even BETTER than their predecessors.

– everyone gasps in shock –

i kind of loved the idea of this series, not only because growing up, i really loved superheroes (i blame my brothers), but also bc my all-time favourite authors were writing them

so, when i read Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo and was feeling very meh about it, i was worried how the rest of this series was going to play out


these books are definitely not for everyone, but i really loved reading this book, i found it so fun and a real pick-me-up after the first bookflower watercolour Continue reading “Top 10 Sequels that Ended Second Book Syndrome”

Top 10 Things I Love to See in Books + Books that did them great!

tuesday top 10s final

my disclaimer for this post is that none of these rankings actually count bc these are all my favourite and i love seeing them in books so much and if i could rank them all #1 i would.

sadly, life isn’t fair.

so here we go, some of the things I ADORE in books.

beautiful, wholesome, sweet friendships have been garnering more attention in YA books and I adore it. it’s not something hard to come by, but it does improve a book immensely (in my very humble, honest, professional opinion)

some very adorable books that ft. beautiful friendships are:

Tea Time Talk

All About Audiobooking: a guide from a compulsive multitasker


hello hello,

in my last ‘tea time talk‘ post, i mentioned a few tips that help me get the most out of my reading time (its not like i’m obsessed with reading or smthing). and one of the tips that really have helped me lately was audiobook-ing

so i thought i’d share some tips and tricks i discovered (from trial and error) over the past couple years on audiobooks.

anyone wanna come @ me for claiming audiobooks count as reading, let’s go (ง’̀-‘́)ง

Top 10 Best Siblings Rep (mostly in ya)

tuesday top 10s final

excuse the awful post in advance, im getting over a flu and even though i feel gross and vicks is my current bestie, kingdom of ash is being released tomorrow (yes im being a responsible human and having this post scheduled) and i wanted to post something before the whole shenanigans broke out (i will SCREAM if i get spoiled)

and so i thought a recommendation post would work perfectly. 😉 my lifelong aesthetic is and forever will be sibling representation in books.

not to be gross and sappy but my siblings are my life, and whenever i see accurate representation of siblings in books i happily freak out and internally scream for hours

yeah, im,,,,,slightly dramatic

also when i was checking other people’s lists for this topic some had ‘forbidden’ (,,,,,they were referring to the incest book) listed and i was just like ???yikes??? and decided that it was now my civil duty to share the books that feature actual, proper, healthy sibling relationships

so without further ado, here we are:

(sidenote: you should get all these books asap and read them and scream with me bc,,,,,thats the only reason why i actually wrote this post)
