What's up you guys?! It's been a while since I did a bookshelf tour and my gosh, are things different now. For starters, I moved in with my boyfriend and he loves reading as well, so we've combined all of our books and created a tiny library. I'm constantly in hearteyes mode. Anyway, I've decided to not show you only pictures this time, because, if you didn't know it yet, I'm also on Youtube now! So here's a video of me showing you my bookshelves.
When I read the blurb of Cherry, I knew I wanted to read it. Four best friends, about to graduate, creating a sex pact? I am in! I'm so glad I finally picked up this book, because I absolutely adored it. Layla, Emma, Alex and Zoe have a couple months left until graduation.. and before they have to part to each go to college. Layla, being the planner she is, has created a to do list with things she wants to do before graduation. Get highlights, make an A in English Lit.. and have sex with her boyfriend of two years. Before you know, The Crew (as the girls are called) have created the sex pact: they will all lose their virginity before graduation together. Not together together, but seperately together. Layla has the perfect plan to loose it on Valentine's Day, Alex says she's already lost her v-card, Emma is the first one of the bunch to loose hers after the sex pact has been created and Zoe starts giggling as soon as something says the word orgasm, so they so conveniently start using the word fireworks instead. And they invent the sexie, the after sex selfie, to send to The Chat as proof after they've done the dirty. Layla even creates a whole Sex Doc, with all the tips and tricks for the big deed.
It's another 'reasons why to read' post! I'm on a reread of this trilogy and it's reminding me of all the reasons why I absolutely adore these books. And they're hella underrated, so I thought I'd put a few reasons together as to why you should pick up this series. Run to the library! Browse bookdepo, find yourself an epub! It's time to start Ruby Red.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish where we get a new topic each week for a top ten list. This week’s it’s Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017. Look at that! For once I have more than 10 books to put on the list, hehe. By the looks of it, 2017 is such a good year for books! I am so thrilled to pick all of these up, but when will I ever have the time? Anyway, these are books that are coming out in the second half of 2017, and the ones I'm anticipating most. Any of these on your list?
I have just finished Lord of Shadows and I AM A MESS. A real goddamn mess. That book caused me so much joy and pain. Mostly pain. It was one hell of a ride and I loved every second of it. But I have trouble wording my feelings into a review, so I thought I'd do it a little different: 7 reasons why to read LoS are coming your way!
Back to one of my favorite kind of posts: the 10 favorite quotes from *insert book*. It's been a while since I did one of these, the last one was my favorite quotes from The Forbidden Wish, but I'm back now with another one and this time it's my favorite quotes from one of the most magical and amazing books I have ever read: The Night Circus. I strongly encourage you to pick this book up if you haven't already. It is such a magical book to read, I can't even express with words how much I love this book. So I'm gonna let these quotes do it for me.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish where we get a new topic each week for a top ten list. This week’s it’s Summer Reads Freebie. Everything or anything related to summer. I did a summer books post last year with books that will make you want to be at the beach, so this year I thought I'd do something different and make a post about something that screams summer to me: books with candy on the cover! I'm talking about anything; lollipops, cupcakes, ice cream. You name it. These particular covers are often super cute and give me a real summer vibe. So I picked out some of the cutest candy covers.
As readers, we don’t often stick to just reading. We write too. And one of the hardest things is coming up with a name for your characters, whether it’s the main character or that one extra that only has two lines: names are important. So I have created the Character Name Generator: if you really have no inspiration anymore (or are just too lazy to think of something) you can consult this generator. How handy is that?! This generator is best suited for fantasy books. I have created a contemporary one in the past which you can find here. Don’t like any of the names that roll out of it? Don’t worry, there will be more of these generators in the future: you can always try again!
