Okay. Let’s just get right to it. I haven’t posted anything here in a long damn time. That’s basically what this post will be a out. Not gonna lie.
So a little while after the last post I forgot to queue new posts and I forgot to write at all. I’m really sorry about that! At the same time, I was gone for a week for this tryout and after, once again, I sort of forgot to write. So I’m totally gonna write and post stuff from here on out. If I have stuff going on I’m gonna let you know, and I will see you soon!
Until next time!
Ps. Bonus picture from my last flight. I’m not the best at taking pictures, but the view was great!

Hi and welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday!
I thought I would be able to post at least a few new posts before this one, but work’s been a pain in my ass since I’ve worked for 3 weeks straight now. But anyways, here I am and let’s get to it!
This week’s topic is:
“Books that took you the longest to finish”
5. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
About 7 months. I think the reason it took so long is a mixture of me being in the longest reading slump of my life. I mean the slump lasted a year and I was barely able to read without pushing myself to finish books, so yeah. But lately I’ve been really getting out of the slump and it feels like a big burden off my shoulders. Btw, the ending ruined me and I don’t know how I will ever be okay after this.

Hey guys! Since I haven’t done any book tags yet, I thought I might as well do one now. And what better way to start with, than a with a Harry Potter themed one? Also, I don’t know who created this tag but if any of you do then please let me know and I’ll leave a link to it. Anyways, let’s do this.
Expecto Patronum – A book connected to good memories.
Matilda by Roald Dahl
I remember when I was maybe 11 years old, and the only book I wanted for my birthday that year was this book. I was so happy when I unwrapped this book! Love it to bits.

Title: Throne of Glass
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Goodreads rating: 4.24 stars
Published: 2012 by Bloomsbury USA Children’s
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
Ps. Spoilers up ahead!

But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.
