the perks of being noura (5)

Yes, you read that title right. This girl right here got her hands on a review copy of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Written by only the most amazing author out there. I cannot explain how happy I am right now. A huge thank you to the miracle workers at Tor Books for making this dream come true! This blog will be spoiler free and will mostly be about my experience with the book. You’ll probably have to wait for a review though because I’ll need to post it closer to release date.

House of Earth and Blood

Author: Sarah J. Maas // Published: March 3, 2020

★★

Bound by blood.
Tempted by desire.
Unleashed by destiny.

Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.

With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom—and the power of love.

Time for another reading blog!

The past week has been a bit messed up. I’ve been trying to be as positive as possible with all that’s happening. My graduation was cancelled and so were my classes. It’s scary not knowing what’s going to happen next. I decided to start this beast to keep me distracted, as well as having more self care days and spicing up the week.

The Kingdom of Back

Author: Marie Lu // Published: March 3, 2020

★★

Two siblings. Two brilliant talents. But only one Mozart. Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart has just one wish–to be remembered forever. But even as she delights audiences with her masterful playing, she has little hope she’ll ever become the acclaimed composer she longs to be. She is a young woman in 18th century Europe, and that means composing is forbidden to her. She will perform only until she reaches a marriageable age–her tyrannical father has made that much clear. And as Nannerl’s hope grows dimmer with each passing year, the talents of her beloved younger brother, Wolfgang, only seem to shine brighter. His brilliance begins to eclipse her own, until one day a mysterious stranger from a magical land appears with an irresistible offer. He has the power to make her wish come true–but his help may cost her everything. In her first work of historical fiction, #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu spins a lush, lyrically-told story of music, magic, and the unbreakable bond between a brother and sister.

My Bookish Art | The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

happy (1)

Welcome to my first bookish art post!

This is probably the most spontaneous announcement I’ve ever made but here’s a little bit about this post series. I’ve been making digital art and editing for the past few years. I make a lot of bookmark designs and sometimes make them into small prints. But a lot of the time I don’t share those prints anywhere online. I kind of felt that it was a waste? to keep making them and never sharing them. So, this series is going to be my way of sharing my art with all of you!Read More »

Happy Sunday everyone!

I thought I’d try a new kind of post today. This will be like a reading vlog but in written format. I’m planning to do this with a couple of books (that I’m sure about). So I’m keeping this spoiler free so there’s no need to worry. I’m just going to be adding some thoughts and pictures of what my weekend has been like with my darling, Chain of Gold. These characters mean the absolute world to me and I’m so excited to dive back in and visit the London institute after so long. Read on to see what my weekend looked like!

Oh! and do let me know what your weekend was like and what you read!

The 3 book series that got me back into reading

2019-10-03 08.03.47 1.jpg

Do you ever just think about the books that introduced you to reading? I haven’t thought about it in a long while but today was one of those days. When I thought about the books that got me into reading I got this sense of nostalgia. That need to read those books again just to remember what the experience was like all over again. As far as I can remember I’ve always loved to read but I did go through a stage where I hardly picked up anything. The books that got me into reading will probably be really familiar and similar for some of you as well. Here goes nothing.
