Red Queen: I read this in just under two days, it's such a captivating, gripping read! It tells the tale of a world that's divided by blood - red commoners against the silver blooded elite who have super-human abilities. The story follows Mare Barrow, a red who somehow ends up in silver court and finds that beyond all odds, she has an ability of her own. It's a great, entertaining read - I'm already half way through the second book Glass Sword!
The Siren: I'm a huge Kiera Cass fan, her books totally hook me in - they draw in me for hours! Once I start one of her books, all I want to do is to finish it - everything else gets thrown out the window! They provide such an escape whilst I read them, despite the fact that they're a pretty light and easy read, I'm totally oblivious to the world around me! The Selection Series is one of my absolute favourites of hers but The Siren, a stand alone novel with myths, fairytale vibes and of course sirens, is the ideal summer read.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone: The flowing, entrancing style of this delightful read reminds me a little of Philip Pullman's books. It's beautifully written and it's a series that I'll re-read over again. The book completely draws you in, the characters are humorous, defined - so likeable and the story of realms at war filled with Seraphim and Chimaera is gripping!
Deliciously Ella: Right now, I need all of the summery/minimal cooking inspiration that I can get after this heatwave - this healthy cookbook is ideal! I highly recommend this book if like me, you have dairy intolerance's, are vegan or are looking for a good healthy eating cookbook! I hardly have to tweak or substitute any ingredients in this lovely cookbook, It's filled mouthwatering recipes - delicious smoothies, snacks and healthy treats galore!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Although its not out quite just yet, I had to give a mention to the next Harry Potter instalment. Quite possibly the most anticipated book of the year, the 8th playscript/book follows older Harry and his youngest son Albus. I've pre-ordered and secured my copy from Amazon and I'll be waiting with bated breath on the 31st July - I'm SO excited for it's arrival!!
