Are you a big fan of the Night School series by CJ Daugherty? Or have you heard so much about the book but haven't exactly got around to reading it? Well, the Night School web series will most definitely be something you should check out.
Web series are becoming vastly popular with the pilot of Delirium (which I liked) released on YouTube and also The Morganville Vampires (unfortunately, I just couldn't get into even thought the books are wow). Now the Night School series have their own web series - we’ve got five webisodes already and the series is already wildly popular!
The Night School You Tube channel has received 400,000 views, episode 3, ‘Power’, and this week’s webisode, ‘The Gilmore Girl’, have both won the Indie Series Network’s Web Series of the Week AND the series has been invited to appear at the Marseilles Web Festival in October 2015! The first ever British Web Series certainly has begun with a bang!
Sounds like we're missing out. Big time! Here's the trailer...
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
I have wanted to read this book in FOREVER and when I finally did I have to admit I was BLOWN AWAY. Now I know why everyone loves this book. It is absolutely amazing! Mostly, I loved the relationship between Hassan and Amir where Hassan is by far my most loved character. The Kite Runner really did make me cry a whole lot. Hosseini deals with many raw issues in this novel which really open your heart. Loved it.
To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I enjoyed the Summer series but I LOVED this latest book by Han. In the beginning of reading it I wasn't too keen, I think I was even going to stop reading it at one point- I'm so glad I didn't as I most thoroughly enjoyed it! It was such a fun, light read. 5 stars!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
This year I have managed to read a fair share of my classics and Pride and Prejudice was one of the best. Just as good as the movie and always giving a part of my heart to Mr. Darcy. Sigh.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Allegiant is an EPIC conclusion to the Divergent series. Especially the ending. I still cannot believe the ending. I was actually waiting for everything to go back to normal. If yoy read the book you know what I'm talking about! I WAS WAITING FOR SOME MIRACLE TO CHANGE THINGS AROUND. And had to re-read the last few pages to see if I really did read it right. Amazing book! (The Divergent movie released this year was really really good too)
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
I am really loving Colleen Hoover. I've read so many of her novels. Ugly Love is one of her best novels I think. I do love my romance novels and this one definitely was my cup of tea.
Hi guys! It has been aaaaaaages since I last posted -September to be more specific which was around two months ago! Oops. It is only because I have FINALLY managed to get a job and have been incredibly busy as a result. Anyhow I've somehow have found an odd time to post with only a couple of days until Christmas. Now the title of today's blog post is very late as you can see but hey I know a ton of people who leave their Christmas shopping incredibly late! So better late than never right?
I've decided to split this post into three parts with three different categories/themes: It's all about the Christmas Spirit, Road trips, Journeys and Happy Holidays and finally Movie lovin = book ravin
It's all about the Christmas Spirit
These are Christmasy books for those individuals that just cannot get enough of Christmas. They need to their books to be about Christmas too. I don't blame you girlfriend!

5. Ex-mas by Kate Brian
Okay book readers, have you read the 'The 5th Wave'? If so, I imagine you're eagerly awaiting the release of the next book, 'The Infinite Sea' which by the way is getting released tomorrow! Yes, 16th of September yay! If not, then you have to read these books anyhow, especially since there's a movie to be released filmed by Sony Pictures and starring none other than Chloe Grace Moretz! Exciting right?
I always read the books first though, check out the synopsis...
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.
Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
For Cassie Sullivan and the rest of Earth’s remaining human survivors, the situation was already desperate when the 5th Wave hit. It’s about to get worse.
No one yet knows the depths to which Earth’s conquerors—the Others—will sink in order to rid the Earth of the human infestation, nor have they guessed the heights to which the human spirit can reach. Characters introduced in Book One will come to the fore—and others will face the ultimate test.
Readers will watch in awe as the Others give their answer to Cassie’s defiance.
Interesting right? I think so, anyway, on to the main chunk of the post...
What to pack in your survival rucksack?
1. Water - I know I know so very obvious but necessary though right? Imagine dying of thirst, clearly not the best of experiences
2. Rope - You always see people in movies pack a rope and somehow somewhere along the line it becomes infinitely useful. Although I kind of do have a Rapunzel hair which can be used as a substitute... I JOKE. :P
I have the hair but no way is anyone tugging it.
3. Matches - I don't know how people produce a fire with stones or wood or whatever but tbh this is much more easier hehe
4. Mobile phone/radio - Have any of you guys watched the 100? Electrical devices are extremely useful believe it or not, even if there's no charge or signal you can get them working and gain contact with others. SCORE.
5. Knife/Something sharp - To cut things with when going on hunting. Bleugh. Just the thought of that. How does one survive in such conditions.
I think it's safe to say, I do not ever what to see myself in this situation. This I believe is pretty obvious taking in the limited number of items I would take with me. Though, I will fight to survive of course. I'll probably die trying however! LOL.
Anyway, guys, make sure to grab a copy of The Infinite Sea being released just tomorrow!
Happy Reading :D
Oops! The planned TFIOS week did not go to plan and for that I'm sorry! So much was going last week that I did not have time to post. Although you guys have to forgive me since I bring you a giveaway :D
One copy of The Fault in Our Stars (movie edition may I add) will be up for grabs thanks to the wonderful people at Penguin for providing the copy. So without further ado...
