Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag 

Greetings fellow bloggers and readers 😉 I hope you’re all blessed with lovely Fridays. I’ve prepared another tag for you. Enjoy!

img_0971

First of all, thank you Lu for tagging me and for being such a supportive blogger and friend. You’re the best! Everyone go check out her amazing blog right now by clicking here.


How long have you been blogging?

I’ve just had my 1 year blogiversary last week.


At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

I really want this blog to exist for as long as I love reading. I just hope that I have time for it even when I go to university.


What is the best thing about blogging?

Fangirling with people who love something as much as I do! It’s one of the best feelings ever, knowing that someone else loves it as much as you do so you can just continue obsessing over it together for a looong time.


What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?

Ever since I created this blog I haven’t had enough time. I’ve had less time for reading books since reviewing takes a huge chunk out of my free time.I have less time to spend with my family!


How long does it take you to find make/find pictures to use?

Not more than a few minutes. I use the book covers from Goodreads unless I feel inspired to take a photo of it myself. I’m trying to make all my headers now that it’s summer and that takes 10 minutes. Gifs are the best and I try to use them as much as possible. I get all my gifs from GIPHY.


Who is your book crush?

Rhys from A Court of Mist and Fury.


What author would you like to have on your blog?

I want to choose an author that I’m not too intimidated by so I’m going with either Laini Taylor, Leigh Bardugo, or Rick Riordan. I’m sure I’ll still be super nervous and uncomfortable though because they’re all amazing authors with books I adore.


What do you wear when you write your blogpost?

Whatever I’m wearing for the day. If I’m writing before I go to sleep: pyjamas and if I’m writing in the morning: jeans and one of my many nerdy tshirts.


How long does it take you to prepare?

Tags and awards take me an hour and a half.
Book reviews can vary greatly depending on how much I have to say and how much I need to think. But usually 2 hours everyday for 2/3 days.


How do you feel about the book blogging community?

Spectacular. Everyone’s always so lovely and more than happy to reply to my insane fangirling comments! Thanks to other bloggers, I’ve found out about sooo many books that I love and wouldn’t have found on my own. Just yesterday this lovely blogger told me about a novella for the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy that I wasn’t aware of, and I immediately read it and adoreeed every single moment of it.


What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?

Just write about what you feel passionate about, don’t just do what everyone else does. Passion inspires others and it’ll make you more popular and memorable. Also being active on other people’s sites is important too because that’s when people really get to know that you share the same interests.

Pride and Prejudice Book Tag

Hi lovelies. I have thankfully been able to post everyday so far (yayyy). I’m still rereading but once I read a new book I’ll post a review. For now I have another tag for you guys. Enjoy 😉

(I just want to apologise in advance for including too much of the same books in a lot of answers for all the tags I do. It’s just that they’re the ones that I remember the most, because I try to include as many different books as possible but I have a worse memory than Neville Longbottom 😩)


I want to thank Angelica for tagging me. You’re the best! Everyone go and check her blog out right now by clicking here.

How it works

  • Link back to Laura and Emma’s original posts so we can see all of your answers! (Just copy and paste these instructions)
  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag a maximum of 10 people

While Mr. Bennet silently reads in the study, and Mrs. Bennet’s tales of woe can be heard from miles away, you spend a lovely afternoon in the garden with your dramatic and doting sisters. What is a favourite novel of yours that features a strong sibling relationship?

Carter and Sadie Kane from the Kane Chronicles. They both went on the crazy adventures and became super close because of them.

You and Mary have decided to walk to the bookshop in Meryton to search for the newest releases. Which book or books are you likely to purchase?

 

33828904.jpgStrange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I’ve heard a lot of great things about it so I’ll probably love it so I’m buying it next :D. Plus just look at this beautiful cover!

Netherfield Park has been let at last, and the owner, a Mr. Charles Bingley, hosts a magnificent ball at his new estate. What fictional ball gown would you wear?

I’m not really a fan of ball gowns. But for some reason after going through 100s of books with dresses on the covers, I found this one the most appealing 😅. I haven’t even read the book yet.

13138635

It is the Christmas Ball and Maria has asked you to join her at the piano. What music or song would you choose as an accompaniment to your current book?

img_3661

I’m currently reading A Court of Mist and Fury and I think the best song for that book is City of Stars from La La Land.

You’re helping Jane to take care of her younger cousins whilst staying with the Gardiners. Which fictional children would you include in your own family?

The Weasley kids. It’d be very crowded with all of them but life would be so fun and colourful with them.

It’s a sombre evening at Hunsford Parsonage, and after dinner, Mr. Collins stands by the fireplace and quotes from the Good Book, while the party tries not to yawn too obviously. What is a memorable quote from a novel that has always stuck with you?

 “Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.” 

― Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here

You’ve been invited to dine at Rosings Park by none other than the infamous Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but the evening ends in disaster as the pompous Lady insults you and your family. Who’s your favourite fictional villain?

Severus Snape from Harry Potter. He counts as a villain because a lot of people still argue over whether his actions were justified in the end.

As Lydia has gone down to Brighton with the Forsters, and Elizabeth is off on her jaunt to Derbyshire with the Gardiners, you also want to go away for a quick break. Which fictional location would be your perfect holiday destination?
tumblr_ojq38b4Gl81uz2kfzo1_500.gif

Velaris the City of Starlight from A Court of Mist and Fury.

You’re running to the fine horse chestnut tree on the green to relive some of your favourite childhood reading memories. What is one that you remember most fondly?

I really hated reading as a child and only got into reading as a teen so I don’t recall liking any of the books I read.

You’re on a tour at Pemberley and you come across Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy emerging from the pond, scandalously clad in only his wet underdrawers and shirt. You can’t help but swoon at the sight. Aside from Mr. Darcy, who is your favourite romantic interest?

Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy . He’s simply too awesome and too precious and too incredible to not love from the botttom of my heart!

Ooran Host Club Book Tag

Hello blogosphere! I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. I have finally prepared another Book Tag for you guys. Enjoy 😊

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you!
    ALWAYS PINGBACK TO CREATOR (icebreaker694) she wants to see your post.
  • Answer all the questions below! (You don’t have to watch the show to answer them.)
  • Tag 8+ bloggers!

Thank You icebreaker 694 for tagging me. Even though I don’t know this anime, I still enjoyed doing it! Hopefully I’ll get to watch it soon. Everyone go check out here amazing blog here!

Now onto the tag:

Theme song- A misleading character.

Rhys from A Court of Throns and Roses for obvious reasons! I LOATHED his guts in the first book! He appeared vile and disgusting and I couldn’t stand him at all! But oh how wrong was I? Now he’s my most beloved male character in fiction!


Haruhi-A character every other character loves.

Inej from Six of Crows. She’s the one character in the book that everyone else liked and tolerated. Everyone else always ended up arguing.


Tamaki-A character who started a movement.

Thomas from the Maze Runner.


Kyoya-A character with parental issues.

Which character in any YA book doesn’t have parental problems?! It seems that everyone’s parents are evil or dead! But I’m going to go with Jace Herondale from The Mortal Instruments.


Kaoru and Hikaru-Brotherly love.

I gotta agree with icebreaker’s answers for this because Jem and Will have the best bromance EVER! But my second choice would be Darrow and Sevro from Red Rising because come on! Those two are hilarious and lovely together!


Mori-A character who is scary on the outside, but is a bundle of fluff on the inside.
Apollo from The Apollo Trials! He tries to be the mighty terrifying god that must be worshipped by all but in truth he’s just fabulous and adorable!


Honey-A character who likes to eat.

Ron from Harry Potter for sure! Whenever I picture Ronald Weasley, all I see is him stuffing himself with chicken wings. 😂


Renge-A tag-along character.

Grover from Percy Jackson. He always joined Percy and Annabeth on their quests to save the world from the gods.


Nekozawa-A character who likes the dark side.

Allie from Blood of Eden. After she turned into a vampire, she joined the dark side for a while and she enjoyed it and found it easier than the constant struggle for good.


I Tag:

The Geek Goddess

The Awkward Book Blogger

Imbookedbybooks

A Book. A Thought.

Kernels of Nonsense

Do you agree with my answers or would you have chosen different characters? Let me know in the comments.

The Horror Movie Book Tag! 

Hey dearest readers! Did you miss me? I have come back from the dead to blog again! I apologise for all the posts I’ve been ignoring and all the tags I’ve missed out on, I’ve had a lot going on and am still in the middle of taking my AS Level exams😭 but I’m desperately trying to save time for doing tags since reading is impossible now. Let’s hope I form a more consistent posting system because I’ve been absent for too long! Now onto this super fun tag I did! 
I want to thank the wonderful Laura @thebookcorps for tagging me! Everyone go check out her blog posts, they’re amazing! 

Let’s start with the rules (mwah ha ha):

  • Please credit and link Princess@Royal Reader (or just Royal Reader), as the creator of this tag, and add the rules.
  • You can use the graphics provided in your post, or you’re welcome to make your own!
  • Thank the person(s) who tagged you and let others know of their fabulous blogs.
  • Tag as many people as you want, be it 1 or 20, it’s entirely up to you!

The Zombie Apocalypse:


A book you would save when civilisation ends:

Can I just cheat on this one question and say that I’d save my phone that would have every single book I’ve read? No? Ugh fine. But this is one hard question. I don’t just want to read one book for the rest of my life if there’s any left after the apocalypse. 

I’ll go with A Court of Mist and Fury because I still haven’t reread it enough times to say goodbye yet. It’s simply too soon and I love it too much now!
The Vampire:


A book you would stake through the heart (in whatever sense):


The Thousandth Floor. It seemed so interesting from the synopsis on Goodreads and I was super excited to read it that I even got the physical copy of the book to read from but it was so disappointing! It was so unsatisfying, I felt like it didn’t have any great ideas. It didn’t inspire me in any way. The characters were dull and I just hated how the plot progressed and the ideas it might give to readers. You can find my review for it here
The Haunted House:


A book that still haunts you:

*Crackling thunder and lightning*


Empire of Storms! I swear, after reading it I was having frequent nightmares featuring the main character who I adore so much dying again and again in every single dream scenario! After reading it, I was traumatised by how intensely painful it was! I couldn’t even handle reviewing it at the time because I’m still really really emotional about what happened (which I try not to think about anymore)! Haunting is a perfect word for what SJM did to me!! 
The Psychological Thriller:


A book with a twist that you did not see coming:

Inferno. I usually love predicting events that happen in books but Dan Brown books always take me by surprise. I never even see any of it coming until I’m reading it with wide eyes and a rapidly increasing heart rate. That’s the reason I love his books so much, they’re so gripping and surprising. 
The Creepy Doll:


A book that seems innocent but isn’t:

The Love That Split The World. I read this book last year with a friend and I expected it to be a simple easy read that just talked about teenagers and their love lives like any typical contemporary but it had so much more depth to it. The characters all ended up being diverse and different and didn’t lack any personality. The book included a lot of inspiring concepts and beautiful imagery with spectacular mini stories that can have so many different interpretations from one reader to another. It had time travel and different worlds which I definitely didn’t expect either! Overall, a surprisingly heart-warming read that had my head spinning with a bajillion ideas! 
The Monster:


A book that you could barely tackle/defeat (in whatever sense):

Deceived. I really found parts of this book disturbing and violent and at times just totally disgusting! It was a great read but some of the events were just making me shiver and I had to distract myself while reading it to stop freaking out. Finishing it felt like an accomplishment because I don’t usually read from the genre of horror. 
The Comedy-Horror:


A book with mixed genres that worked (or didn’t):

Blood of Eden trilogy. It was mostly about a dystopian world but it also centred around vampires. I have never come across that combination before and I found it unusual. The books were good but not amazing but that’s not because of the genres it had I just didn’t like how the events progressed towards the end but that’s me when it comes to most dystopias. 
The (Cliched) Teen Horror:


A book you found seriously cliched/ stereotypical:

Me Before You. I know that a lot of people loved it and it got very hyped but I just found nothing new and original in it. There wasn’t anything unexpected, the characters weren’t unique at all. It felt like a book that didn’t involve anything special. It was adorable and all but come on! I’ve seen and read many similar things before!
The Demonic Possession:


 A book so gripping you needed an exorcist to escape it:

The Infernal Devices as a whole series. It was so emotional and spectacular and filled with TOO MANY FEELS, I felt like I was going to burst open and just become a mess of tears and saliva. I was so shaken by its ending that I thought that I might quit reading because nothing was worth that much pain! (I know I can be seriously overly dramatic but in my defence you guys would understand if you read it too.) But hey, I moved on and continued reading so yaaaay! 
The Science Fiction:


A precious book you would permanently give to the aliens for the good of mankind:

The Harry Potter series. I’m sorry! I think I’d lose most of my soul if I gave my precious Harry Potter books to anyone but I’m pretty sure that once those aliens read it. No matter how heartless and cruel they were, they’d change their mind about humanity and instead fall in love with us as a kind. In fact, they might just abandon their own beliefs and start worshipping J.K. Rowling. 😆 Thus saving Earth once more.

This Is My Genre, Tell Me Yours Tag!

Hello lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying your time blogging. I want to mention that I’m doing my best to post on a weekly basis and I’m still trying to manage my time so I apologize for the delays for any tags or posts.

I want to thank icebreaker694 for tagging me in another great post and for always always reaching the same level of excitement I do when we’re fangirling. 3www

The Rules:

  • Credit the bada Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek as the creator of the tag, either use the created tag name graphic or create your own and link back to his blog
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you want

What is your favourite genre?

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  •  Young Adult Contemporary

Who is your favourite author from that genre?

J.K. Rowling for Fantasy

Pierce Brown for Science Fiction

Benjamin Alire Saenz for YA Contemporary

What is it about that genre that keeps pulling you back?

I think I read fantasy the most, is because I just love learning about new worlds and new endless possibilities! It’s the author’s chance to just unleash his/her wildest imaginations. I always have this thrill at the beginning of a fantasy novel where everyone and everything is being introduced and there are maps and a lot of cool information that supports the world being created and it fills me with inexplicable glee 😁!

Science fiction is a genre I read less from but still do enjoy endlessly and I think that’s because I am a true geek 🤓! I simply adore science and math so adding those two to fiction and making a plot out of it astounds me! I never fail to be amazed by how cool it’d be if I could achieve something the characters achieved if I studied and worked hard enough.

YA Contemporary is my soothing genre. I sometimes need to read about sweet stories that shouldn’t involve saving the world with normal teenage characters. They also have their share of feels and they make me feel so warm and fuzzy on the inside.

What is the book that started your love for your favourite genre?

For fantasy:

For Science Ficiton:

the_martian_2014

For YA Contemporary:

4374400

If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading from that genre, what book would you choose and why? 

For fantasy it’ll be the same as the first book series that got me into reading which is Harry Potter.

For science fiction I’d say Red Rising by Pierce Brown

For YA contemporary I’ll choose Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Why do you read?

I read because it’s one of the most entertaining things I’ve ever encountered. I read because it’s really the best way to escape this shitty world of ours and enter countless of others where the world is eventually saved by the good guys. I just take comfort in reading about amazing kick ass characters.

I came across this post a few days ago and I’m not sure where I found it from but it sums up why I read pretty accurately.

The Literary Questions Tag!

Hello blogging world! I hope your all having a great day filled with feels. I was tagged by the wonderful Joana @Bookneeders for this fun tag. Hope you guys like it.

WHAT’S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COVER ON YOUR SHELF?

13611052The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a recent addition to my book collection and the cover is just SO GOD DAMNED BEAUTIFUL!

IF YOU COULD BRING ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER TO LIFE, WHO WOULD IT BE?

The first name that comes to my mind is Dante from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. I just feel like Dante and I have a LOT in common and that we’d end up being close friends. Plus, I’ll finally get the chance to philosophize about everything with someone else who enjoys such conversations. I really would have to resist to urge to attack him with hugs every time I see him though because he is just too PURE for this world!

IF YOU COULD INTERVIEW AN AUTHOR, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

I keep changing my mind but right now, I’m most curious about the author of The Young Elite by Marie Lu. I’m reading the trilogy currently and it is so dark and I have loads of questions I need the answers to.

WHAT’S A BOOK YOU WOULD NOT READ AGAIN?

8713500Ash by James Herbert is one book that I actually bought and found super cool from the synopsis but the story was just dull and boring and it wasn’t what I expected at all so it was a huge disappointment that I don’t want to go through again.

CAN YOU NAME A CONFUSING STORY?

25203675

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi is a book that I recently read and reviewed but the plot had so many holes in it that half of what happened made no sense towards the end. Stuff just worked out because they should’ve but there was never any clear information to support what happened. You can find my review here

FAVORITE FICTIONAL COUPLE?

I probably have a whole book of lists for my favourite fictional couples so I’ll just pick a couple I haven’t mentioned before.

Solangelo-(Will Solace and Nico di Angelou from Percy Jackson)

My reaction whenever I read something about these two or find cute fan art about them:

giphy-1giphy-2giphy

TWO FAVORITE VILLAINS?

Severus Snape from Harry Potter.


Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses.

I’m not sure they count as proper villains because they both ended up being great people.I LOATHED them both so much at the beginning but now they are one of my favourite characters ever!

A CHARACTER YOU WOULD KILL, OR REMOVE FROM A BOOK ENTIRELY?

Jessamine Lovelace from The Infernal Devices.

I hated her so so much! She is the embodiment of everything I hate in other people! She was so incredibly ungrateful for everything she had, so selfish and vain that I couldn’t stand her at all! WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD HATE TO BE A SHADOWHUNTER?! The level of ungratefulness she had was over the top so I wouldn’t mind having her removed.

IF YOU COULD LIVE IN A FICTIONAL WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

I usually answer with: “Any world that isn’t this world is GREAT by me.” But I’ll choose The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this time because there’s still so much of the magical world left unexplored!

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST AND SMALLEST BOOKS ON YOUR SHELF?

The biggest book I currently have on my shelf is Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

25494343

The smallest book I have is The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling3950967

Do you agree with any of my choices? Have you read any of the books I listed in this tag? Let me know in the comments below 😉



Happy Reading.

The School Book Tag!!!

Greetings fellow bookdragons and bloggers! I hope you’re all having a great time. I have worked on this fun tag I found @twist in the taile and I couldn’t help but want to do it on my blog since I’m currently totally DONE with school and all the pain it brings upon students. Anyways enjoy my tag everyone ;D

MATHS

a book that has two characters who equal perfection

img_5125

Ari and Dante from Aristotle and Dante Discover
The Secrets of The Universe!
My cute little cinnamon rolls are just perfect for each other, they are so in sync with each other and I couldn’t possibly see anything that could ever separate them from each other no matter how much they fight! MY OTPPPPPPPP! I think they’re perfect because they complete each other and have so much in common from initially being friends.

 

 

BIOLOGY

a book I would like to dissect

8621462

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. It was such an emotional read for me, and I bet there’s still soooo many layers and hidden meanings that I could never catch no matter how many times I read it!

PHYSICS

a book with a lot of potential

27190613.jpg

I appreciate the pun! God knows I’ve calculated way to many potentials of stupid objects to not understand this ;D One book I’m really excited to read is And I Darken by Kiersten White. I’m just really curious about such a cool mysterious title, I’ve heard so many great things about this book and I can’t wait to finally read it-which will hopefully be soon!

CHEMISTRY

a book I really bonded to

23466626.jpg

Dreamology by Lucy Keating. I just finished reading this book and I really really really love the main character Alice. I felt like I could truly relate to her about not wanting to live in reality and about not knowing who she was. I also loved how Alice was utterly weird and had an overactive imagination that got her into trouble all the time.

ENGLISH

a book that should be a modern classic

3.jpg

Harry Potter simply HAS to become a modern classic! It should become one of those book series that everyone has to read at some point in their life! I mean, come on! Harry Potter deserves to be a classic for the future generations to read!

P.E.

a book that I raced to the finish with

4374400

Ugh Physical Education, more like Public Embarrassment if you know what I mean! I literally do that with nearly every single book I read, nothing takes me more than 5 days to read. I’m going to choose If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I always read these two books whenever I need something really easy to read that still makes me super emotional. No matter how many times I read them, I’ll always be agonized by not finishing them in one sitting!

MUSIC

a book that reminds me of a song

17406847.jpg

Defy by Sara B. Larson always reminds me of Mulan so I’ll Make A Man Out Of You always plays in my head. It’s a really catchy song you guys should listen to it!

 

2767052.jpg

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins for obvious reasons reminds me of Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys! Whenever that  song plays anywhere, I’d start thinking of Katniss Everdeen-The Girl On Fire.

Art

A book I found aesthetically pleasing to look at

25203675.jpg

I added this new part of the tag because I didn’t want to leave out any lessons I have. I recently read A Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi and I am completely in love with the cover! A lovely star filled sky and a really fancy sari with golden writing everywhere! Oh how much I’d love to have a physical copy of this book!

I Tag

I haven’t been tagged for this by anyone, but anyone who found this tag cool and fun can do it!

Is anyone else suffering from school pressure as much as I am? Did you stop caring anymore? Lets insult the existence of school together then! 😀

Happy Reading!

♥Maya♥

Fall Activities Book Tag!

Hello to all my dear bloggers! I know it’s Monday and they can be very tough so I prepared another fun tag for you guys! Enjoy 😉

Thank you Lu for tagging me in such a fun autumny tag! Everyone go follow her blog right now!

Apple Picking

(A book on your TBR that looks so delicious, you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.)

28588345.jpg

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book so I can finally read it!

Corn Maze

(A book that’s so fun to get lost in.)

5.jpg

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I just finished rereading it and I was just  so happy to be reading it all again, I got all the feelings and emotions just like I was reading it for the first time.

Haunted Houses

(A book that scared you silly.)

22557272.jpg

I don’t read any horror books but I got scared reading The Girl On the Train by Paula Hawkins. It wasn’t a scary book or anything but the mystery and not knowing who did what kept me up at night a lot. I also got terrified of ending up like the main character because she seemed so desperate and hopeless.

Pumpkin Patch

(The last book you picked up (purchased).)

8621462

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I’m so glad I bought the book because it really really affected me in an emotional way. You can read my review here

Scenic Drives
(A book that is lyrically beautiful.)

img_5125

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz.

Pumpkin Carving

(A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.)

I don’t really feel the urge to carve any books no matter how much I loathe their existence but I think I’d choose 50 Shades of Grey. I haven’t read it and never want to but the fact that it’s so very popular that people might start to think that that’s what books are about infuriates me so much!

Drinking Apple Cider

(A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.)

If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. Just thinking about these two books warms me up, they’re just so adorable and amazing. It doesn’t even take a day to finish them so I can read them whenever I want to just hide under my covers and read something.

Jumping In A Leaf Pile
(A book that reminds you of your childhood.)

The Giver by Lois Lowry. I read this book when I was not a teenager so whenever I reread it, I remember the good old days when books weren’t supposed to cause me so much pain!

Scary Movie Night

(Your favourite spooky read.)

As I’ve mentioned earlier I do not read horror books but the closest book I have to ‘spooky’ is The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey.
