Dreamy Book Covers Tag 😍//ft. Gorgeous Fall Colours (haha I tried)

Autumn is the perfect season – the weather is just right and the colours are absolutely stunning. Just like fall, books with eye-catching and gorgeous covers always makes me happy.

I just love seeing my bookshelves and admiring all the beautiful designs and colours. Moreover, these books contain so many incredible words within the pages. To combine my love for books and the fall season, I’ve decided to do the Dreamy Book Covers Tag originally created by Tiana @The Book Raven. I tried my best to give a fall vibe with these covers but it was difficult to find all the covers with reds and oranges.

post cover image

This is a spoiler free review.

Sometimes there are books I read where I don’t have too much to say about it. In these cases I would love to still share my opinions through mini reviews!

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Via Goodreads

Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.

my thoughts

PS. I Still Love You is the second book in the Lara Jean series and for me, it was a disappointment. I absolutely loved the first book To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before; it was cute, funny, and the dialogue was great. In this second book I felt that it lacked depth. The characters were underdeveloped and even more so, the plot was lacking; nothing  really happened. In addition, the dialogue fell short and lacked substance. With that said, I did still enjoy reading about the family dynamic in the story and about Lara Jean’s friendship with Chris. And although I had some problems with how Peter and Lara Jean, I still enjoyed reading about them. I probably have a bias in my rating as I really loved the first book. I’m excited for the third book! I’m so excited to fall in love with the characters again ❤

Characters I Want as my Friend// ft. My Favourite Book Series + TV Shows?!

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a little while, I’m still trying to work out a school and blog balance. Today’s post is a Top 5 Tuesday (even though it’s a Wednesday), a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic is favourite fantasy books, but I honestly haven’t read enough to make a list. Instead, I’m going to answer last week’s question: Top 5 characters you want as your (best) friend! This time I wanted to include both books and TV shows. ❤

Top 5 (In No Particular Order):

1
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games

If you’ve read my previous posts, you probably know how much I love The Hunger Games series. So of course, I had to include Katniss on this list. She is such a determined and brave character. She also has such a kind heart (ie. her care for her family and Peeta) and has a great sense of humor, even though she acts tough. For these reasons, I would love to be her best friend!

August Wrap Up// ft. The Current Most Talked About Series

Hi everyone! I recently returned from vacation and I’m back to blogging. ❤ School has also started for me which means balancing reading, blogging, and school. I think I underestimated the amount of time school and extra curriculars take; so during the school year I will try my best to post at least once a week. Today’s post is my August Wrap Up, sorry for the late post!

Reading

Books I Read

I read the same (well, basically the same) number of books as last month. I feel that since I read around four books a month during the summer, I’ll probably read two books a month during the school year. Although I would love to read more, I’m a slow reader, so I guess that means my TBR will never get smaller 🙂 😂 If I read (or average) two books per month for the rest of this year, I’ll be very happy!

Spoiler Free or Spoiler Filled Reviews: Which Do You Prefer?

Hey everyone! As you are reading this I am on vacation 😊.

Today I want to discuss book reviews and their format.

Whether it’s occasionally or frequently, most book bloggers post reviews- and I’ve seen them in different formats. Most of the ones I read are spoiler free and talk about the book in a broader sense, giving readers their overall impression. However, I’ve also seen reviews where bloggers talk about the specific contents of the book and go into more depth. Other reviews have a mix of both non-spoilers and spoilers.
