The Connelly Boys Book Reveal!

The Connelly Boys
Lily Velez
(Celtic Witches, #1)
Publication date: September 13th 2018
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
The Connelly boys are practically royalty at St. Andrew’s Prep. Popular, wealthy, and devastatingly beautiful, the four brothers have long cast a spell over their classmates and over the sleepy seaport town of Rosalyn Bay, Ireland. There’s only one problem: they’re also cursed. …Or so the rumors say. Seventeen-year-old newcomer Scarlet Monroe has never been one for rumors, but when she inadvertently banishes a demon while trying to help eldest brother Jack Connelly, the most breathtaking of the boys and the one to whom she feels inexplicably drawn, she quickly discovers there may be more to the local superstitions and folklore than she originally thought. Before long, she’s pulled into a dark and mysterious world filled with ancient magic, powerful spells, kidnapped souls, and deadly enemies. But none of it compares to discovering the truth of who she really is…or what s…

Guest Post!

Today we have a guest post from Melissa! Trigger warnings for death and suicide. -- I am an avid reader. I don’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t have a book in my hand. Growing up, the library was my favorite place to be, and then when I managed to save some money, I traded the library for bookstores. To this day, I can’t walk past a bookstore without going in, looking at all the books I want to read, and wondering where my books (once I finish writing them!) would end up.
But throughout all the books that I’ve read, there are some that just stuck out and changed my life. Here are four of them:
Goodnight Moon - okay I know that this is a children’s book and doesn’t have a deep rooted meaning to it, but this book means a lot to me because it is a book that my mother used to read to me when I was a child. I used to curl up in her lap, resting my head on her shoulder, and listen to her voice as she read the words out loud. She would read to me until I was asleep and then do i…

Beautiful Classics: Different Editions of Classic Books!

I love looking at beautiful editions of classics, there are so many! I have read a few classics, including Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights and Frankenstein but there are a lot more that I would like to read. Here are some beautiful classics that I found:


The first book is a lovely vintage classic of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I love how the cover illustrates two women and the colours reflect the tone of the social class topic of the book.


Next we have an aptly creepy looking cover for Dracula by Bram Stoker. I haven't read this book yet but a friend of mine loved it and I used to love watching Young Dracula so I am interested to check this book out.

The next edition I found was an absolutely beautiful Alma Classics Evergreen edition of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I love the colours and how the image takes me right back to the moors and the emotions of the characters.

I have never read Great Expectations by Charles Dickens but this Evergreen Classic edition cover…

What I’ve Been Up to #4: I Love Vlogging

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote a what I have been up to post and I wanted to update you all on a passion that I have recently discovered: vlogging. I started making YouTube videos last year after falling in love with booktube and having enough courage to start. Towards the end of the year I started making reading vlogs. However, my views weren’t great and I wanted to spend more time writing- insert blogging! I discovered the book blogging community and I started my blog, something that I am so grateful I did. In the last six months I have really grown my blog and I enjoy blogging so much.
I’ve been watching a lot of reading vlogs lately and my friend, Eleanor May started vlogging, I also watch EeveeEmmyVlog but I never thought that I could vlog because I don’t go out a ton. However, after seeing Eleanor start vlogging, that finally gave me the push to try and I am so glad that I did! I absolutely love vlogging, it is so much fun to record clips and talk to everyone throu…

Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR

Hello! Today I am here with a readathon TBR! I am participating in a few readathons this month and the first one is the Summer Biannual Bibliothon which runs from 14th July to 20th July. This readathon comprises of optional reading challenges, video challenges and Instagram challenges. Here is my TBR for the reading challenges:
1.Group book:
So the first challenge is to read the group book which is The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. This is a book that I was planning on reading at some point. In this book, three witches are said to come back every year and lure boys to die by drowning.
2.Choose from someone else’s TBR:
The second challenge is to read a book from someone else’s TBR. I researched the TBRs of booktubers, book bloggers and bookstagrammers and decided to read Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire which is on Little Red Reader’s TBR. This is a short book that I have wanted to read for a while. This book series follows children who have come back from other worlds such as Nar…

Lucy's Reading Diary: July 10th

Hi everyone! I absolutely love watching reading vlogs and I wondered if I could translate this to writing somehow. I came up with the idea of an ongoing blog diary, writing about my thoughts whilst reading and my progress. I hope that you like these posts!
I started reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and I was really enjoying it. You can definitely tell that the author has a scientific background but I actually like the technical speak. It isn’t too overwhelming and as someone who enjoyed studying biology, it is a welcome return and it is about dinosaurs which I find interesting too! I won’t write too much about the book because I will be describing it in my review. I have been making slow progress. I find that when I start a book, I am really excited about it but if I don’t get too much time to read my excitement wanes and it takes me longer to read.
Yesterday I felt like reading but I didn’t want to read Jurassic Park. I thought of a few books that I would like to read and po…
