I concede. I read this solely because I was hugely obsessed with the early seasons of the CW adaptation of Gossip Girl. When I came across the audiobooks via my library, I thought why not? I have always wanted to try the books. However I can’t say I’m eager to jump back into this Cecily von Zeiger’s mind after what was a pretty unenjoyable, and at times, aggravating read.

BOOKS I LOVED WITH TROPES I USUALLY HATE

Some tropes, no matter how annoying, can be absolved if they’re in the hands of a capable author… right?

That might depend on how forgiving the reader is though… you can expect me to be very forgiving.

THE KISS QUOTIENT BY HELEN HOANG | Spoiler Free Review

The Kiss Quotient follows Stella Lane, an accomplished econometrician that’s given her much more money than she knows what to do with and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old. It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan–from foreplay to more-than-missionary position.

FAVOURITES I’D LIKE TO REVISIT

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Top Five Wednesday! This one’s an interesting one, where we get to talk a little bit more about some old favourites that I probably have never mentioned on my blog yet.

I personally don’t make much of a consistent effort to re-read my favourite books. I tend to only revisit books if I’m behind on a series. I definitely tend to re-watch shows all the time (Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Rick and Morty most often because they always make me laugh!) But this list will otherwise focus on mostly on books because I actually have a few planned re-reads!

Although, this topic is great because it can cover more than books — movies, tv and games can very much apply to this topic! And if you want to join in on future T5W’s, here’s the link the the goodreads group!

There are some exciting releases this quarter adapted from popular fiction! Continue reading “BOOKS & COMICS HITTING THE BIG SCREEN IN 2018 | PART III”

BOOKS I’VE REMOVED FROM MY TBR ❊ T5W

Welcome to the rare instance where I actually manage to easily curate my weekly T5W list.

Why? Because I actually regularly cull my Goodreads TBR pile to ensure the list stays below 50 or safely around it.

Also, I regularly DNF books. I can tell in whether a book is not for me or it might be a put down for now kind of thing. If it’s the former, well it gets kicked off my TBR!

This is one of those T5W’s that is therapeutic to write. Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section what you really need to remove from your TBR pile.
