Do you like books that are a previous story told by a different character? (rambling about midnight sun)

The latest news to sweep the book world (at least I think, I’m probably a little behind) is that Stephenie Meyer announced that she is finally releasing Midnight Sun, which tells the story of the original Twilight book from Edward’s point of view and was leaked partially online in 2008. I have currently seen two different reactions to this book being announced: excitement (which is valid) and people saying that it’s the same book once again. I’m not sure where I stand on this book so I decided to have a ramble about it. Is this post a mess? Probably!

Last 10 Books I Removed from My TBR

Happy Tuesday, friends! 👋🏻 One of my goals for this year is to really make the effort to clean up my bookshelves. I have so many books that I have either lost interest in and will never read, or have read and didn’t like. I only want to keep books that I do have an interest in or will likely read again so that I can keep my shelves looking nice and neat. Because right now, my poor shelves are suffering with how cluttered they are. I tend to have two reasons as to why I remove a book from…

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Opinions are fun because we all have them. But then again the fact that we all have them can make them not fun. I personally like hearing what other people think about books because I can either rave about a book if someone agrees with me or I can have a healthy discussion if they disagree with me. Emphasis on ‘healthy’ because I’m not about arguing with people over something that doesn’t matter, like whether they like my favourite things or not. This tag was created by TheBookArcher over on YouTube! And I’m not tagging anyone directly, so take that as…

10 Books I Wish I Read as a Child

Even though I did do a fair bit of reading when I was little, there are a lot of children’s “classics” that I haven’t read. That might be because I wasn’t that interested in them, they weren’t widely available in the UK, or I just didn’t know that they existed. It happens sometimes. I could go ahead and seek out those books I missed out on and read them as an adult, but there is a big problem in that: I’m an adult who doesn’t have children and doesn’t plan to have children. There are children’s books out there that are…

Movies I Want to Watch Based on Books I Haven’t Read

There is this rule in the bookish community that I will always think is bogus and should be broken if you want to break it, and that is that you must always read the book before you watch the movie.  I personally think that this is a silly rule because you can consume media in any way that you want to and there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do it (unless you’re stealing, then that’s definitely wrong). There are many reasons why we watch movies based on books without having read the book like we didn’t know it was…
