Books: Most Anticipated Releases 2016

Standard

Today I thought I would write a quick blog post on my most anticipated book releases for the upcoming months. I am a massive book lover and there are few books I cannot wait to have my hands on.

  1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling and Jack Thorne.

This is a script book of the newest addition to the Harry Potter series/franchise, a new play that will open at the Palace Theatre London in July 2016. As a Harry Potter fan, it would be a sin not to have this book on my list.

This book is to be released on the 31st of July.jhgfg

  1. The Dark Artifices Book 1 – Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

This is the first book in a spin-off trilogy to The Mortal Instruments series. I am a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments books. I have read the six books of the main series, and I was just bought The Infernal Devices trilogy and The Shadowhunter’s Codex for my birthday. I am hoping to read The Bane Chronicles next. Needless to say I can’t wait for even more Mortal Instruments content!

This book is to be released on the 8th of March.

  1. On The Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher.

This is probably the most anticipated book on my most anticipated books list. The concept of this book sounds incredible. The Waterstones summary is as follows: Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It’s the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she’s become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won’t open.

Evie’s soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it’s too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to her long lost love.’kjh

I cannot wait to read Carrie’s first fiction book, due out on the 14th July, especially after reading her debut book All I know Now which I thoroughly enjoyed.

  1. The Luxe Life by Fleur DeForce.

I really enjoyed Fleur’s The Glam Guide, which came out last year, and since this book is a follow up to that I cannot wait to read it.

This book is to be released on the 28th July.

  1. Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr.

Tanya Burr who realised Love, Tanya last year, is releasing a complete baking book due to high demand. Tanya’s channel, known mostly for beauty and make-up, has seen the odd baking video and they are always very popular. I love Tanya’s baking and I can’t wait to buy this baking book and make all the treats inside!

This book is to be released on the 30th June.

What I’m: October

Standard

whatimWhat I’m is my recent blog concept which allows me to cover a few of my favourites of the month in one post. This is my What I’m for October…

What I’m readingThe Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire (Book Six) by Cassandra Clare. In August I was in the midst of reading Book Three and I’m still thoroughly enjoying this series. The series is reminiscent of some of my favourite books and interests. It is about a group of young adults in a fantastical world of werewolves, vampires, faeries, warlocks and a race of Shadowhunters: descended from Angels, as they step forward into a time of war, uncertainty and danger.

What I’m watching – This month I’m all about TV Shows and I’ve been watc282288F800000578-3060785-image-a-48_1430492966005hing Happy Endings Season Three, after successfully finding it on Amazon Instant. I love this show to pieces, despite its only three season airing before it was cancelled, and the characters are so loveable. I’ve also been re-watching Season One of Once Upon A Time, another show I totally adore. In case you’re unfamiliar, this show is all about fairytale characters torn out of their world and thrown into ours by an evil Queen. I totally recommend both shows.

What I’m subscribing to – This month I’ve been enjoying Fleur De Force’s vlog channel, FleurDeVlog, as she has been and will be vlogging every day in October. I’ve also been enjoying Strawburry17 as the channel has been revamped for Halloween with6afe69f6546810140294c658cd969313 a range of new spooky shows.

What I’m listening to – So much! I’ve been listening to loads of music as of late. But I’ve recently gotten back into bands such as Metric and Nirvana. If you’re unfamiliar with either of these artists/bands I recommend checking out Satellite Mind and Help I’m Alive by Metric and Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are by Nirvana.

What I’m eating – Recently I became a student. Yes, a student. Part of this role entails trying to eat cheaply. I’m also a vegetarian. In all of this, I have been enjoying Cous Cous as a regular part of many of my meals. I have been especially enjoying buying bags of plain Cous Cous which I can add to salad or rice (I hope that isn’t too weird) and I’ve been eating it on its own (okay, that’s weird, I know) with a seasoning of salt and pepper. Delicious.

What I’m quoting – ‘What a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person in more than a person.’ – John Green, from his novel Paper Towns.

What I’m

Standard

 mortalinstruments3_zpsd2942061
Today’s blog is a bit different to usual. This is a new concept I’m trying out in preparation for September when school starts again. I think it could be really helpful for me when I have very little time to recommend something completely or for those rare times when I run out of things to say. What this concept is, which I’m naming ‘What I’m…’, is like a regular favourites’ blog which a lot of other online personalities do. I hope you like it and support my idea.

What I’m reading – Currently I’m reading The Mortal Instruments Series written by Cassandra Clare. I’m on the 3rd book City of Glass and loving it tremendously. The series is reminiscent of some of my favourite books and interests. It is about a group of young adults in a fantastical world of werewolves, vampires, faeries, warlocks and a race of Shadowhunters, descended from Angels, as they step forward into a time of war, uncertainty and danger.

What I’m watching – Over the past month or so, my Dad and I have been watching through all of the James Bond films, having finished Sean Connery, George Lazenby and Roger Moore’s variants of the character, we’re now onto Timothy Dalton’s License to Kill.James-Bonds-600x300

What I’m listening to – Following on from what I’m watching, what I’m listening to is the music from James Bond, this includes tracks such as Garbage’s The World Is Not Enough and Louis Armstrong’s We Have All The Time In The World to Shirley Bassey’s Goldfinger and a-ha’s The Living Daylights.Screen-shot-2015-05-12-at-21.29.36

More specifically though, I’ve been enjoying Corey Gray’s cover of The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face and EofE’s new song Get Caught.

What I’m eating – I tried the new Haribo Tangfastics Frenzy Edition sweets this week and they were delicious. Very sour (just how I like my sweets) and very interesting with new flavours including Watermelon, Pomegranate and Mango.

What I’m quoting – ‘You are the light of the world. A city that is on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.’ Matthew 5:14-16
