5 Series I Should Probably Get Around to Finishing

Hello all! Today I thought I would share 5 lovely book series that I really need to finish…!

Magnus Chase series by Rick Riordan (Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor, Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead)

I love Rick Riordan’s books, and I only have the last book in this series to read! I highly, highly recommend all of his books, but when you read Magnus Chase after reading the others, you discover so many more Easter eggs!

Skin Books series by Alice Broadway (Ink, Spark, Untitled Book #3)

SPARK, book 2 in this series, was only released about a week ago, so I haven’t really had that much time to read it, but I really want to read this one and the last in the series… although that will probably be released in 2019 or something…

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Days of Blood & Starlight, Dreams of Gods & Monsters)

I adored the first in this series, and I actually own the second, but I haven’t read it yet; and I think I will probably have to revisit it before I read the next ones in the series though, because I can’t really remember how it finished.

The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury (The Sin Eater’s Daughter, The Sleeping Prince, The Scarecrow Queen)

The first of this series was brilliant and really different to anything I’ve read before, but I have yet to finish the trilogy despite Melinda Salisbury kindly sending me the entire trilogy… so I should probably get reading.

Finishing School by Gail Carriger (Etiquette & Espionage, Curtsies & Conspiracies, Waistcoats & Weaponry, Manners & Mutiny)

I realise that by a complete accident I have put all trilogies on here, but now here’s a series of four books… and, once again, I’ve only read the first (I’m sensing yet another trend…) but it was hilarious, and I would love to finish it (especially as they’re such quick reads!).

So here are 5 I need to finish, what is on your list?

Until the next time,

Hannah 😊

Exciting Book Haul!

Hey friends! I know I’ve just done a book haul but I went shopping today & bought some books that I’m super excited about and I want to share!

I got three novels, all from Waterstone’s in Bournemouth. One is a classic, and two are YA, and I’m so excited for all of them and I’m hoping to get to them later this Easter. I still have a bunch to read on my Easter tbr, but maybe I can get to these sooner rather than later…!

The first I got is Where Angels Fear to Tread by EM Forster, which is a Penguin English Library edition, which is my favourite edition of classics! I read A Room with a View by EM Forster and loved it, and also got given Howards End by EM Forster at Christmas, but I haven’t read it yet. Anyway, this one is short, about 160 pages, so should be pretty quick to read.

Next up I grabbed Spark by Alice Broadway! This is the sequel to Ink and I am sooooooo excited to read this! I’d say that this was more MG than YA, but this one might end up being more YA I guess. ANYWAY, you should definitely read this series!

And finally I picked up Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley. I saw an advert for this behind the till and just turned straight around, picked it up, and came back! It’s about writing and books and a love of words, and the lovely cashier said that I was going to thoroughly enjoy it so I hope she’s right! ❤

All in all, I have a lot to read, and I’m super excited to get to all of these and the ones in my last haul too. 🙂 Have you read any of these? Are you excited to read any of the ones I’m excited for too?

Until the next time,

Book Review | Ink by Alice Broadway

32827036Every action, every deed, every significant moment is tattooed on your skin for ever. When Leora’s father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as a record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete, she wonders whether she ever knew him at all. – from Goodreads

I thought that the premise and, indeed, the execution of Ink was such a brilliant idea. I love that this is a really tattoo-positive novel, too.  Continue reading “Book Review | Ink by Alice Broadway”
