Top 10 Tuesday – Book characters I’d love to be besties withūüďö

What Em's Reading (3)

Here I am again with another¬†Top Ten Tuesday¬†hosted by That Arsty Reader Girl. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is book characters I would love to be besties with! As I would literally reel off about 6 million HP characters I’ve limited myself to 5 characters to keep the list from getting OTT

Here we gooooooOOOOOoooo.

  1. Hermione Granger. I mean duh, of course I would want to be friends with Hermione, I feel like we have so much in common!
  2. Matilda Wormwood. I just love her so much, I think she’s a great character and would be super cool to have as your bff.
  3. Vin (from the Mistborn Trilogy). I think Vin is an amazing character, and I mean, who wouldn’t want her as your pal? Her allomantic powers would make her a great addition to my girl power team.
  4. James (from James and the Giant Peach).¬†Who wouldn’t want to be friends with James with that adventure he went on?!
  5. Robert Langdon. Literally every single book he features in I wish I was his bestie so I could travel the world and see all these cool places with him. I just think it would be amazing.

Honourable mentions must also go to the following! Luna Lovegood, Ginny Weasley, Charlie Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Charlie Bucket (the kid has a chocolate factory ffs), Katniss Everdeen, Annabeth Chase, Percy Jackson.

Did any of your BFF characters feature on my list? Let me know! Em x

A full review of the Mistborn book series.

ALOHA! 

I promise, I am soon going to start something else (have probably already started it actually, I find it VERY easy to devour Dan Brown books in literally a day or two) but here is my review of the ENTIRE Mistborn book series. 

Rating on the whole 8 / 10.

The series on a whole is incredibly well written, Sanderson’s writing is detailed and sets the scene perfectly. Nothing was left unexplained at the end of the series.¬†Saying that,¬†you would have to read the whole series to understand what was going on.

I did find the first two books to be better than the third, as you can see from my review on it, but for me, everything came together and made sense, which is so important! Because of that, I highly rate the books.

There are others that Sanderson has written, that I’m excited to delve into and start reading, as I do enjoy his writing style and the depth he goes to with his writing.

If you want a book series to get far too emotionally invested into (I cried at the end), one that will make you root for the main characters, feel like you know them, but also keep you guessing right till the end, then this is for you!

The Hero of Ages, Brandon Sanderson – A Review. [SPOILERS]

What Em's Reading (4)

Hello!

Welcome back to my blog my lovely ppl‚̧

I’ve finished The Hero of Ages, and the whole Mistborn Book series from Brandon Sanderson! I’ll be doing a review on the series as a whole (probably the post after this one, and I’ll link my 3 reviews into that post should you want to read them).

Anyway, ON WITH THE REVIEW (especially since it’s taken me so long to read it..)

On the whole, this book was good, but not as good as the previous two. I felt like it was a very slow burner and then rushed at the end, almost as if the publishers had said¬†“you need to get it out ASAP”¬†and he wrote it so quickly.

I will say, it did come a full circle, and everything made sense at the end, which was a massive positive of the book, especially since the first two build up to that exact moment. That being said, I did find the getting to that point rushed.

The book was also split into 3/4 POV, so you were never sure who you were going to be following in which chapter, which I think is why it was so full and slow, because he was trying to tie up too many things.

On the whole, the book was good, a slow burner with a rushed ending, but it did round off the series nicely and tied everything together.

Now I’ve finally read the whole series I’ll do a complete post on the series as a whole, which will be out soon.¬†

2019 TBR – I’ll update as the year goes on!

Hello¬†everyone!¬†And Happy New Year, it’s officially 2019 in England and it feels the same as last year, except the realisation that I’m going to be 20 bloody 4 this year, I’m going to sob in the corner.

I joke (I don’t really ūüė¶ )¬†but I have SO many books to read this year, and I’m hoping to get through them fairly quickly so I can get some reviews up and then also find some other books to read¬†(I’m completely open to suggestions so if anyone has read a good book lately, let me know!)¬†If I do find some books that others have read or get suggestions, I’ll compile a blog post of them all so I can share them with you guys too ūüôā

A lot of these books are Stephen King, I was kindly gifted a big set of his books around 2 years ago and I’m still working my way through them! There’s also my goal to complete the¬†Brandon Sanderson¬†series, in January, just one more book to read!

I’ll update this blog as I go along through the year with a done/read note and a link? can I do that? to each review I do, plus of course, any new books I add to my list.¬†

So, here goes!

1 – Mistborn Book 3 – The Hero Of Ages – Brandon Sanderson

2 – Misery – Stephen King

3 – IT – Stephen King (I’m hoping to read this before the second film comes out, as I watched the first film before I read the book which is unlike me!)

4 – End Of Watch – Stephen King

5 –¬† The Green Mile – Stephen King

6 – Inferno – Dan Brown

7 – Origin – Dan Brown

There will be¬†so many more¬†to add to this list, but I’m hoping to get these read in the first 3 or 4 months of 2019,¬† Mistborn book 3 is my priority! I also want to make sure I read¬†It¬†before chapter 2 is released in late 2019. I’m aiming to re-read a couple of other Stephen King books too, but they won’t take precedence until I’ve read everything else!

Anyway, what are your reading goals for 2019? Are you broadening your horizons or sticking to what you know with a few that have been on your shelf for ages?! Let me know in the comments.
