  1. City of Bones has been added to my TBR list (as of about 10 minutes ago…)! Heard so many good reviews on it ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, I’ve almost finished reading the Maze Runner series – what did you think of the first book? ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved it xx Heather

  2. I really enjoyed the first one but I’ve heard that they get worse as the series moves on, would you Agee? ๐Ÿ’•yeah you should definitely read City of Bones and if you haven’t yet check out the series on Netflix x


    1. To be honest I would have to agree – it’s not that I haven’t enjoyed them (I’m halfway through the final book and haven’t read the prequel yet), but I think the main appeal of the first one was the setting (the maze) and the settings of the other books just aren’t as intriguing. Also I think the first book is more mysterious (you want to know why they are in the maze etc) and the later books lack that.

      But it’s definitely still a favourite series of mine (and I hope the conclusion doesn’t ruin that..!).

      Ooh I didn’t realise there was a City of Bones series, now I’m even more excited to read it ๐Ÿ˜€ xx

  3. Oh my gosh been looking for some new book inspiration for ages! I haven’t read for pleasure in what feels like forever so I don’t even know what I like anymore. I loved Animal Farm and City of Bones though, as well as Scott Westerfeld’s series. I’m tempted to check out Zadie Smith now – heard good things about it!

  4. Thinking, Fast and Slow is one of my all time favorites… of course, I write a psychology based blog. Tversky and Kahneman really caught something when they realized that utility theory was hopeless at explaining and predicting people’s behaviors.

    We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves was an amazing story. Very quirky. Very emotional. Very gripping.

    I read Catch-22 every year while I was in university and high school. Hugely influential. It’s companion, at least in my mind, was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, also hugely influential in my young adulthood. If you do read it, I don’t recommend modeling your life on it as I did. There were… issues.

    Great reads. Great blog. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world!

  5. I notice that you have Anthem by Ayn Rand. While a worthwhile read, I would recommend The Fountainhead by Ms. Rand. That is a book rejected by a dozen publishers before becoming a nationwide bestseller.
