Top 3 Books I Read in July 2017

Over the course of July 2017 I read 17 books! Of those, here are three which I really loved:

  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone (#1) by Laini Taylor
    I looooooooved this book! It was wholly encompassing and a brilliant fantasy novel. Karou is a really interesting character and Laini Taylor is such a fabulous writer. I really, really loved this book, and I highly recommend it to everyone! I can’t wait to read Book 2 ASAP!
  2. Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu
    Oh-em-geeeee! This book was FABULOUS! It doesn’t actually come out until September 2017, but WHSmith have copies already for the Zoella Book Club. This is such a brilliant book about feminism and zines, and I really hope it inspires so many young people out there when it officially comes out.
  3. HHhH by Laurent Binet
    This book has a lot of hype surrounding it; and it’s very easy to see why. This is the most unique book I’ve ever read. It’s a historical novel like no other, and it’s about two parachutists who I can’t even believe I haven’t heard of before. I would have loved to have written this book myself, let me tell you that! If you love history, if you love faction, if you love uniqueness, read this book!

So there you have my three favourite books of July 2017! What did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I wrote about here? Let me know in the comments below! 😀

Goodreads Challenges | Why Is There So Much Hate?

Very much yay for some, but not for others. I’ve seen a lot of people set their challenges at 1 book this year, because once that 1 books has been read people feel like they can relax more. Personally, I’ve generally finished a Goodreads challenge around June-August, so I’ve never experienced Goodreads challenge stress, but other people have. I think that this is a great idea for setting if it’s something that makes you feel more comfortable.  Continue reading

Hello 2017!

Happy New Year from Sprinkled With Words! I hope you guys are ready for a good one.

Last year, I blogged half of the amount of posts in 2016 as I did in 2015 (that’s 70 to 140 if you were wondering!) and yet I still got more visitors and page views so guys, thank you so much! You guys really mean a lot to me, and I’m so thankful.

This year I want to do more posts, more adventurous and boundary-pushing posts. Exploring more writing techniques! Publishing more interesting book reviews! I was really enjoying my posting after my hiatus. I really love this blog.

So hello. This is me coming back and I hope that 2017 becomes a prosperous year for me, you, and this blog!

Happy New Year!
