Top 5 Wednesday – Forgettable Books

Whether you loved or hated them at the time, these are books that you just don’t really remember…

Here’s the thing, I’m pretty good at remembering books, or at least aspects of books. HOWEVER. I can’t remember what I read 10 days ago. I’m that sort of a person.

So I had to look back at my Goodreads list for this.

Oh my God I hated this but I can’t remember anything about the plot, mainly because I DNF’d it when I was about 15.

A Beautiful Novel Aesthetic!

So the wonderful Aneeqah N on Twitter put out a call for authors to respond to. She said:

It’s been a tough week in this community, and as a writer, that can really made it hard to stay motivated on your work.

so I want to do something: reply to this tweet w/a description of your WIP/book + some keywords and I’ll make you an aesthetic!

I, being the visual geek I am, told Aneeqah of my WIP (five, queer, UK teens band together against the supervillain who overtook their city) and she came up with THIS THING OF BEAUTY

aesthetic. london street corner, 5 teens standing against the light, hack screen, nerdy boy looking up, quote 'and the only solution was to stand and fight', pile of books, girl jumps of building, wires, punk rock girl.


I love the quote in the middle and the pictures chosen are A+ like, really. It looks like stills of some soon to be released YA thriller or something.

If you want to check out her other beautiful aesthetics and/or RT mine, the link is HERE!

I’ll just be fanning myself over here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Didn’t Get to In 2017

These are books you didn’t end up getting to in 2017, but really want to prioritize in 2018. 

This list could go on for days, but Top 5 Wednesday is 5 for a reason, so I’ve whittled it down.


I got this with a Fairyloot box, and I’ve heard RAVE reviews about it. I can’t wait to delve into this. Villain origin stories is everything I love.


I’m hype for Amanda Foody’s next book, and I read the first few pages of this but it was too heavy (hardback) for me to hold at the time. But again, rave reviews and it has the book cover I’m DYING for and yes. Love love!


Damn. I got about 50 pages into this and I loved it but the language required so much concentration of me when I was going to sleep that I had to put it down. It seems really interesting but one of those I need to get the rhythm of.


This has won so many award and – you guessed it – I’ve started reading it but it won awards for a REASON and that is because it’s complex and fascinating, world-spanning, history-laden and not fit for me after medication before I go to sleep.


Witches – check. Being made into a TV series – check. Need to read it – check.
