Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken – So many plot twists it became predictable…wait, what?

Never Fade

*All reviews I write are spoiler free* 

In my attempt to finish some of the series I’ve started, it was time to make some progress with The Darkest Minds series.

I’ve been going through this weird phase lately where I’ve been going off a lot of the books I used to love. So I felt like I needed to read this book as soon as possible, before I lose interest in the series altogether.

Did it work? Ermmm…not really.

But I’ll explain in my review.

Let’s talk about Never Fade!

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Totally Should've

Today’s post will be a book tag! I’ve seen this one a lot on YouTube and on book blogs, so I’m glad to be joining in!

I was tagged by Olivia @ Heir of Glitter , so thank you very much!

The idea behind this one is that the sentence starts as “A book/author/character/etc that totally should’ve…” and then there’s a variety of different ending for that sentence, which you have to answer.

Here’s to hoping I can think of an answer for all the categories…

Let’s do this!

December Book Haul

December Haul

So it’s just been Christmas!

I hope everyone had a really lovely day yesterday ❤ I know I did – mine was amazing actually, I got so many surprises that just blew my mind! The main one being…A LAPTOP!!!! I asked for one for my 18th birthday in February but my dad decided to surprise me by giving me one yesterday! Now it will be easier for me to blog since I won’t have to use my dad’s computer on the rare occasions he’s not on it to schedule loads of posts ahead of time 😀

Anyway – back to the post.

Instead of this being just a Christmas haul, I decided to make it my December Haul, because I bought a few books before Christmas. All together there are 17 BOOKS! (EEEEEEKKKK!)

*side note: I apologize for the low quality photographs. I took them late at night on my phone camera so they aren’t as good as I’d have hoped*

So without further ado, I’ll get on with the haul!

I was tagged by Ariana @ The Quirky Book Nerd to do this tag, so thank you very much! You guys should go and check out her blog.

I love Disney, so this should be a fun tag to do! I’ve got a feeling it’ll take me ages to think up the answers though …

Around the world in YA

It’s probably about time I did this tag! I was tagged by Olivia @ Heir of Glitter so thank you!

So the aim of this tag is to list a bunch of countries – whether they’re the same as the person who tagged you or newly thought up – and find a book that’s set there.

I think the reason I’ve delayed this for so long is because I hardly ever remember where a story is set unless it’s a made up world like Hogwarts (Harry Potter) or Erilea (Throne of Glass). But now I’ve thought of some so let’s do this!

Series I have yet to finish

Series I have yet to finish

I have this habit of buying books that are completely unrelated to each other, instead of buying the next book in a series I’ve started to continue on. So I have A LOT of series I haven’t yet finished.

This will be split into two different section: Series where the books have all been released and I’ve just not gotten round to continuing yet, and Series that I am up to date with, but need to wait for the next books to be released to finish.

There will be Goodreads links for the 1st books in the series, if you want to check them out.

So…let’s do this!
