Miss Demeanor | Review

Title: Miss Demeanor
Author: Beth Rinyu
Pages: 270 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis

Spoiled. Privileged. Brat. 

What others saw as entitled, I saw as standards, and mine were high, especially when it came to men. The boys I wasted time on in college were now a thing of the past. I was setting my eye on the real deal: Rich, successful, nice looking, good personality preferred – but not required.

I had it all figured out, I’d live off my family’s good fortune as I waited for my wealthy Prince Charming to sweep me off my feet. That was until my father decided to come up with his own ridiculous plan:

Move to New York City (good)
Take a job at a magazine owned by one of his friends (bad)
Cut me off financially after three months (worse)

All out of options, I headed to the East Coast to start my job. Feeling much like a princess being thrown into court with the commoners, I intended to fail, and fail miserably – that was until I was given an office with a view and my own advice column. Suddenly, working for a living wasn’t so bad after all … except for him. Obnoxious, boorish, rude … take your pick. He was the exact opposite in my quest for Prince charming – except for nice looking and good personality not required. He hated me the moment he laid eyes on me and was determined to make my life a living hell whenever I was in his company. Little did he know, he had no idea who he was up against, I planned on matching his animosity toward me in ways he never imagined. But the funny thing was, the more he got under my skin, the closer he was getting to my heart, making me reassess the girl I once was and focus on the girl I wanted to become.

Review

This book was provided by the author through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Beth Rinyou and Xpresso Book Tours!

Miss Demeanor is a Contemporary Romance book about Rose who has it all and Alex who cannot stand girls like Rose.

Miss Demeanor is such a fun and fast paced Contemporary. I really enjoyed reading Alex and Rose’s story and I couldn’t put this book down. I was just so addictive and I had to know how the story was going to end. I read this book in two days and I can tell you that it was one of the best books I read this month!

Rose and Alex are amazing characters. I couldn’t stop laughing with them because they were so mean toward each other, when in reality, they both had feelings for each other. I really liked how much Rose changed and grew as a person. She was such a brat, sorry, but now she’s such a caring woman and that’s one of the things that I really liked in Miss Demeanor. There was good character development, and that’s something really important for me.

Miss Demeanor was so well written and I really enjoyed Alex and Rose’s story. I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for an amazing Contemporary Romance read, and I need to read more books written by Beth Rinyu!

The Silver Queen | Review

Title: The Silver Queen
Series: Sovereign #2
Author: Josie Jaffrey
Pages: 287 pages
Version: Paperback (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis
The last city on Earth is contaminated. Now blood is the only thing that can wash it clean.

Julia is trapped inside the Blue as the Nobles fight over the few humans who are still alive. When the dust settles and she finds herself shackled to a new master, she knows she must escape or die.

Meanwhile, Cam has gathered a handful of comrades and is on his way into the Red to rescue his queen. But not all of his friends can be trusted, and not all of them will make it back alive.

The Silver Queen is the second book in Josie Jaffrey’s Sovereign trilogy, set in a dystopian Europe where vampiric Nobles control the last remnants of the human race.



Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Josie Jaffrey!

The Silver Queen is the second book in the Sovereign series and continues the story of Julia and Cam.

The Silver Queen was yet another amazing book written by Josie Jaffrey. I was so excited when I got this book in the mail and I couldn’t wait to read it. The story is so fast paced and well written, it’s so hard to put down the book.

Julia is definitely one of my favourite characters because she’s so strong and independent. I also cannot get enough of Lucas because he’s so special and I guess I’d fall in love with him too! I also really liked Cam and Felix. I wasn’t really sure what to think of Felix because The Gilded King ended pretty weirdly, but then at the end of The Silver Queen Felix told the truth about everything and that changed my opinion of Felix. I’m also really happy that Josie Jaffrey included an LGBT+ relationship in this story!

The Silver Queen ended with a major cliffhanger, just like all Josie’s other books and I keep on thinking who it could be. For those who’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about and I think it’s someone we already know but I’m not sure if my guess is right.

The Silver Queen was an excellent read, and I cannot wait for the third book. The Sovereign series and the Solis Invicti series are both so addictive and I highly recommend them!

Never Say Die tour 2018

Last week I went to the Never Say Die tour in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and I had an amazing time! I went to the Never Say Die tour in 2015 and it was so amazing so when I found out that Alazka, Being As An Ocean and Northlane were coming this year, I just had to go!

First, I’m going to talk a bit about the Never Say Die tour. The Never Say Die tour is a metalcore concert tour in the UK and Europe to raise awareness of suicide, or just mental health in general. Hope For The Day is also present during this tour and gives a speech about mental health and suicide. All proceeds of Hope For The Day go to their suicide prevention and mental health education programming.

Casey © All Things Loud 
I think that going to this tour is also something personal because I struggle with my mental health and every time Hope For The Day gives their speech, I have to cry because it’s just so beautiful. It would mean a lot if you could check out their website: Hope For The Day and perhaps donate or buy something from their store if you can! I bought a beautiful t-shirt that you can see on my Instagram!

Now let’s talk about the bands! This year we have a list of 7 bands: Thousand Below, Currents, Polar, Casey, Alazka, Northlane and Being As An Ocean. My boyfriend and I arrived a little late so we didn’t go to see Thousand Below, but we did see all the other bands.

I really like checking out new bands and the Never Say Die tour is perfect for this because it’s so affordable. I’ve never heard of Currents, Polar and Casey before but I really liked them, especially Casey. Casey is a Welsh band and I think that their music is really beautiful and special. Their latest album, Where I Go When I’m Sleeping, is about mental health and that album really touched me. After the show, I looked up this album and it’s just so beautiful!

Northlane © All Things Loud
I’ve seen Alazka, Northlane and Being As An Ocean a few times now and they still amaze me with their music and talent. Alazka and Being As An Ocean are two of my favourite bands and seeing them always makes me smile. I love their music and the lyrics are so beautiful. Northlane is also an amazing band and I really liked their show!

The Never Say Die tour was amazing and I cannot wait for next year’s edition!

Taking Laura | Review

Title: Taking Laura
Series: A Broken Heart #3
Pages: 220 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis

This world breeds monsters in the form of men. There is no justice or revenge or higher power that will intervene. The only thing you can do is walk away and leave everything you know and love behind… 

So that’s what I did.

Laura signs herself into a psychiatric ward. All she wants is to sleep at night and not fear what was to come. To her, the high gates and security means safety. That is until she meets Craig.

Craig is a recovering addict who has been clean for a year. The walls of the hospital offer him safety. He knows that when he leaves, he might not survive. His group of friends and everyday routine becomes his salvation. That is until he meets Laura.

Thrown together in a group assignment they must learn about each other, but they soon learn a lot about themselves and the picture isn’t always pretty.

Can you truly fix something that wasn’t just broken but shattered?

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Vi Carter!

Taking Laura is the third book in the A Broken Heart series and tells the story of Laura and Craig.

Taking Laura was such a good book and I think that this one if the best book in this series so far. Taking Laura is so different compared to Saving Grace and Claiming Amber, but in a good way. I think that this book is the best one so far because it deals with mental health, addiction and abuse, and is not just a romance book but so much more.

We all know Craig from Saving Grace and Claiming Amber, but we don’t know the Craig we’ve seen in this book. We get to know a different side of him thanks to Laura. I really liked the way Craig changed and that he dared to be honest with her. Laura is a new character who’s been through so much and learns how to deal with everything. I think that they bring out the best in each other and that’s something beautiful.

Taking Laura was amazing, fast paced and so well written. I really liked the story and I couldn’t stop reading because I had to know what was going to happen to Craig and Laura. I think that if I had the time, I would’ve finished it in one day. 

I cannot wait to read more books written by Vi Carter because she’s an amazing author and I love all her books!

My Little Secret
is the third book in The Breaking Series, but can be read as a standalone. My Little Secret tells the story of Hawk and Sadie.

My Little Secret is the second book I’ve ever read about MMA and I’m really digging it. It’s just really interesting because MMA fascinates me and reading about it just really cool. The main focus of this book isn’t MMA, but it plays an important role for the characters.

My Little Secret is such a quick and fun story about two people who shouldn’t be dating, but still do it. This book is just perfect when you’re into a short and cute romance story. Hawk and Sadie are so funny together and I couldn’t stop smiling when I was reading My Little Secret.

This is the first book I’ve read by Ember Leigh and I really liked it. I cannot wait to check out her other books and book 1 and 2 of The Breaking Series!

Until Merit—the only woman he’s ever loved—strides through his front door. He’s not sure how long she’s staying, but he knows it’ll be long enough to destroy what’s left of his heart.

Especially Liam Kolane—son of Heath, the crudest and cruelest Alpha to have ruled the Boulder Pack. Liam is as handsome as he is infuriating, as kind as he is punishing, and he makes Ness’s traitorous heart race, which isn’t good. After all, he’s a Kolane. Like father like son, right?

When Heath dies, Liam vies to become the new Alpha and no one dares challenge him.

Except Ness.

Thus begins a treacherous game.

Say What You Feel | Review

Title: Say What You Feel
Series: Chaos & Consent #2
Author: Kyra Lennon
Pages: 252 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis

Hey, it’s me. The girl who went to a rock show, had too much to drink and … you know the rest.
Or maybe not. I’m an attention seeker, right? That’s what you think. That I must have done something to warrant this happening to me… 


Ambra
Finding out the truth about what happened that night almost killed me. Literally.
With almost no-one left on my side, how am I supposed to pick up the pieces of my life and move on?
Who can I trust? How can I trust again?

Noah
Finding out the truth about what happened that night was the biggest wake-up call of my life.
She lost everything that night, and it’s my fault.
I have to help her. I have to teach her to trust again.

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Kyra Lennon!

Say What You Feel is the second book in the Chaos & Consent series and continues the story of Ambra and Noah. At the end of Hear What You Want, Ambra discovers who raped her and this book continues Ambra’s battle with the truth.

Say What You Feel was an amazing sequel and I couldn’t have asked for a better book. Say What You Feel is such an emotional book and you have to know the ending.

When I received this book late at night, I had to read it and finish it that same night. I loved Hear What You Want but the book ended so abruptly. You figured out who raped Ambra and that was it. I had to know what was going to happen to Ambra and Noah and that’s why I finished Say What You Feel in one night.

Say What You Feel is such a beautiful book and it had such a big effect on me. I think that this story will forever stay with me because it’s just so realistic and heartbreaking. I think that everyone should read this book (if they can) because this is not just a book about rape, but also about finding yourself again, trusting people and finding love during one of the darkest times of your life.

Say What You Feel was one of the best sequels I’ve ever read so far and I cannot wait to read more written by Kyra Lennon!

Centuries-old witch, tattoo artist, half-demon … none of those titles are going to save me this time. The only way I’m going to get out of my death sentence is to take down the biggest, baddest demon there is… My father.

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Annie Anderson!

Daughter of Souls & Silence is the second book in the Rogue Ethereal series and continues the story of Max and her friends.

Daughter of Souls & Silence began right where Woman of Blood & Bone ended and I couldn’t help myself by finishing it in two days. The story was so fast paced and enjoyable to read, just like the first book.

It was no surprise that I was going to love Daughter of Souls & Silence because this was already the third book I read written by Annie Anderson and I loved her two other books. The story is just so interesting and amazing and I loved the multiple perspectives!

Daughter of Souls & Silence was an amazing sequel with yet another beautiful cover, and I cannot wait to read the third book!

Review

Woman of Blood & Bone is the first book in the Rogue Ethereal series and tells the story of Max and her friends. One day two people visit her tattoo shop and then everything changes…

Woman of Blood & Bone was such a good and interesting story. I really liked that this book, and series, is about different kinds of supernatural creatures. I think it’s always nice when you can read about different creatures and not just one.

Woman of Blood & Bone has multiple perspectives, which is something I also really like because you get to know the characters and you get to know why they do certain things. I really liked reading in Max’ perspective because she’s so badass and just amazing!

This book is definitely one of my favourite books because it’s just so fast paced and I couldn’t stop reading. I would’ve finished it in one day if I had the time. This is the second book I read by Annie Anderson, and the second book I loved written by her. She can write Contemporary and Fantasy, and she’s just amazing! I cannot wait to read the sequel, Daughter of Souls & Silence!

PS: look at that stunning cover!!!

Pink cut crease | Tutorial


I’ve always been in love with cut crease looks because they look so amazing. I tried to do one myself and I really like the result. I’ve already tried to do a small cut crease in my two toned look, and now I went for a full cut crease. I went for a pink cut crease with glitter and black eyeliner! To be honest, it wasn’t that difficult because this is the easy variant of a cut crease, but I still think it looks amazing if I may say so myself.

I hope you guys love this look and make sure to recommend me some looks you want me to (re)create!

1. The first thing is applying pink eyeshadow in the crease. You can go a bit higher with the pink if you have hooded eyes because otherwise you cannot see the cut crease or you cannot see the pink when you do the cut crease.

2. Then we create the cut crease with concealer and go over it with a white or skin-coloured eyeshadow.

3. After creating the cut crease, we are going to give it an extra touch with some glitter. I used this Metal Shock Eyeshadow but you can also use a glitter liner or loose glitter.

4. I went for black eyeliner for this look because it felt a little naked and boring.

5. Then I went for pink of the lash line and glitter on the inner part of the lash line.

6. After the lash line, we finish the eyes with mascara and lashes.

7. I went for a cold-toned pink highlighter because the pink on the eyes is already really warm and I wanted to do warm-toned lips.

8. And the last step is lipstick!
And that’s it!

Secrets of a Broken Heart is a poetry collection about heartbreak and tells the story of healing, hurting and dreaming.

For as much as I dislike it
I am addicted
to the feeling of pain

Secrets of a Broken Heart was such a beautiful poetry collection, and I couldn’t stop reading. I finished it one day because I had to read all the poems. There were so many beautiful poems and so many relatable poems.

During the day I fake happiness
and sometimes it works.
Sometimes I feel the smile
in every part of my body.

This was my first book written by Lee Martens, and I love her writing style. It’s just so beautiful and I cannot wait to read more poems written by her!

I also want to say that I really love the cover, it’s so pretty!

I feel most alone when I’m with friends
and their conversations never seem to end.

My favourite poems:
  • Temporary happiness
  • I wrote this on my birthday
  • Forever
  • The night
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Who am I to you?
  • Unrequited love
  • Laughter 
  • It is all okay
  • Don’t be gone
  • Insecurity
  • Growing up
  • My body is the enemy
  • Building safety
  • Memories
  • Most alone
  • Depression #2
  • Yellow nails
  • You’re not welcome here
  • Tragedy
  • A night like this
  • Valentine’s Day #2 | Taking back control

Review

Wolf Games: Severed Fates is the finale in the second season of The Vampire Games and continues the story of Cass and Jameson.

Wolf Games: Severed Fates was another amazing sequel and I cannot get enough of Caroline Peckham’s world and characters. Every book in The Vampire Series is so well written, action packed and fast paced!

It’s always so nice to come back to this world because I love the characters and I love that every season is about different main characters. The V Games books are about Selena and Varick and the Wolf Games are about Cass and Jameson. I also love that we still read in Selena’s and Varick’s perspective because they are still present in the Wolf Games books. I think that this is such an amazing idea of Caroline because it’s always sad to say goodbye to some of your favourite characters.

As I mentioned above, there are multiple perspectives which I really enjoy because you get to know the story even better than just from one perspective. You get to know everyone’s thoughts and feelings and because of that you can more easily relate to the characters or know why they did the things they have done.

Cass and Jameson are definitely one of my favourite bookish couples because they’re so hilarious and perfect. I really loved how Wolf Games: Severed Fates ended because Cass and Jameson deserve it!

I cannot wait for the third season of The Vampire Games: The Hunter Trials!

I know I’m a bit late with this post because it’s already November but I kinda started a bit late with my set up, oops! I still wanted to share this set up because I really liked what I created this month and it feels like I’m getting better and better at it. It’s still not perfect, but I like it!

My Monthly Spread is the sort of the same as in my October post, the only differences are the colours, stickers and the text box for important things. I really liked what I did with the purple and silver washi tape!


After my Monthly Spread, we have my Mood Tracker and Habit Tracker. My Habit Tracker is the same as in my October post, only the colours are different. I always try to change my Mood Tracker and this time I went for some cute cacti that I could colour in.


I always try to change my Weekly Spreads too because there are so many beautiful spreads that I want to try out and I’m also trying to find the perfect spread for me. I really like that my Weekly Spreads are not too crazy with lots of doodles because then I cannot be organised haha. I think that spreads with doodles are pretty, don’t get me wrong, but my autism cannot deal with it (FYI, I don’t have autism, I just joke about it because I have some autistic traits, I mean we all have some autistic traits, right?!).


The last two pages of my November set up are my Wrap up and Favourites pages. I decided to go with something different because last month I just made a simple list. This time I made a bookshelf for the books I read this month, for TV shows I made little TVs and for movies I made roll film.


I really like this month’s set up and I hope you guys like it too!
