Discussion | DNFing books + some books I started but never finished and why

I am quite critical about some books, because if I’m going to read it, it has to be entertaining. Or at the very least I should have some form of motivation to finish it. That can be because I think it’s funny or smart or that I can learn something from it, but that last one pretty much only applies to non-fiction. Lately, I’ve been DNF’ing (iow: not finishing) quite a few books and I wanted to talk a little about why I DNF books and why specifically these ones.

4 LGBT+ Books I Need to Read ASAP

There are so many books I haven’t read yet but need to read! One thing that always makes me want to read a book is LGBT+ representation or diversity in general, and I’ve read a lot of those already, but I always want more! So here are 4 books that are on my TBR that are queer and I really want to read. There are of course more on my TBR than only these ones so let me know if you’d like a part 2 of this post!

Somehow this post turned into a bi-rep post but hey, I like that!

Insta-Loving Books | In which I talk about books I fell head-over-heels in love with from page 1

Do you ever read one of those books that when you’re only a few pages in you already know you are going to love it? Because I do. Sometimes I start a book and I just insta-crush on it. SO BAD.

This post was inspired by my current read, which is The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven. I just started reading it today and I’ve just started it and couldn’t stop. I love it so much (as I’m writing this, I’ve actually put it down, but I’ve read a third of it in about half an afternoon.) Anyway, I wanted to talk about what made me fall in love with these books (and authors) instantly and why!

My Most Anticipated Books of 2018

I realize this is not exactly the most original topic to write about, I’ve seen about a hundred post like this one but you guys told me on twitter to write it so here I am! My list of most anticipated releases consists mainly of V.E. Schwab books (which sadly do not all come out this year :P) but I have plenty of others too! Most of these are from authors I’ve read before, that is because I tend to wait a little until there are more reviews so I can make up my mind about others. Anyway, let’s get into it!

10 Books that Surprised me in 2017 | The Best of 2017

Since the year is almost over, it’s time to recap all the books I’ve read in 2017. I’ve read so many amazing books this year it’s hard to create a top 10, but I’m going to try anyway. These books are not only books that surprised me (in a good way) but also books I loved so much I’d reread them right this second if I had all the time in the world (which I don’t).

All of these I’ve rated at least 4 stars and I have loved them to pieces! These books will count down to my favourite book of this year (why am I doing this to myself???). So before I start rambling too much about how much I love these books, let’s go on to the list!
