A book that makes you overflow with joy

Heartstopper is such a cute LGBT+ graphic novel – so cute, that I read all 3 volumes on tapas in one sitting! I loved the main romance, as well as all the representation in the other characters. Alice Oseman is also unafraid of exploring important topics too, like consent and mental health.

A book that made you realise something

The Silence of Girls


I finished The Silence of the Girls last week, and it highlighted the hidden voices in Classics and mythology. I loved how it was told from Briseis’ perspective, a former Trojan queen but now a prisoner of war to the Greeks. The impact of war on women was explored really well, and the characterisation of Patroclus and Achilles was great too.

A book that you love so much you could cry

The Dragon Republic

I doubt anyone’s surprised that Dragon Republic takes this prompt. Kuang’s second book in The Poppy War series is devastating but I love it so much. The sequel is even better than the first book, with character development, battles and betrayals.

A popular book that you didn’t really like

The Shining

40723277. sy475

I gave The Shining 3 stars, and from everyone’s reviews I thought I’d love it, but I was disappointed. It dragged and it just wasn’t as scary as I was expecting it to be from a horror book?

A book that you loved in your childhood

The Hunger Games


I had to bring back a classic, so I picked The Hunger Games. I loved it so much and I think if I read it now I would probably still enjoy it. I definitely need to read Battle Royale though, the book it was based on.

Here are my questions:

  1. A book that you can’t forget
  2. A book that made you angry about the world
  3. A book that disappointed you
  4. A book that made you laugh and cry
  5. A book that excited you

And here’s who I tag, if you want to do it:

Thanks for reading!



  1. Nice answers! I really need to get around to reading The Dragon Republic, I’ve been dragging my feet over it for so long. I’ve never heard of The Silence of the Girls but I’m adding that to my TBR asap! I love Briseis and now I am beyond excited to read from her perspective.

    1. Thank you, it took me a while to get to The Dragon Republic too but it was definitely worth it. I hope you like The Silence of the Girls, it was really interesting to see her point of view as well as seeing Achilles beyond the hero! 😊
