TEA AND TALK - PACKING UP THE BOOKS
This week has been all about packing up the books, every last one of them. I'm getting ready to move house, which means my mind has been busy with so many ideas for my 'creative room' as I'm calling it - a place to write, film, and create. I'm really excited about it, and I can't wait to show you guys.
I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J.Maas, and I'm feeling pretty conflicted. I enjoyed the last 30% or so, but overall it was pretty difficult to get into, because I felt like it lacked much of the 'hate turned to love' that you expect from a Beauty and the Beast retelling. However I loved the Faerie lore, it was really well done and I will definitely keep reading the series. But is Tamlin finding his way into my long list of bookish boyfriends? Nah. He just didn't do it for me, sorry guys. Have you read this book? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
What I love to do with Tea and Talk is shine a light on YouTube videos that I've loved in the last week, and this week it absolutely has to go to the wonderful Emily Jean who is part of the Booktube community.
She's awesome, I love her personality, her sass and her attitude. This week I watched her amazing video 'Tale of the TBR', and it had me in stitches. It's actually from December of last year, but when I was watching my lovely friend Sam from Thoughts On Tome's 'Booktuber Shoutouts Tag' she mentioned this video and since I'm a subscriber of Emily's anyway, I had to go check it out. Seriously, go watch. It's fantastic. Although, now I feel like all my books are talking to me, so I guess it's pretty good I've packed them all away.
I've just picked up The Bones of You by Debbie Howells, it's not my usual read but I've definitely got sucked into the plot and I'm really invested in the story already even though I'm only fifty pages in. PanMacmillan sent me this book for review, and I'm so excited to get further into the story.
What have you read this week? Any recommendations for me?
