Chit-Chat & That #1

March 6, 2017 1 Comment

Yep, i’m literally starting a segment on my blog called chit-chat & that, its so me & I kind of love it I think. 😎 .

At the minute i’m currently reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli and its really growing on me as the story progresses theres such a diverse cast of characters and the writing is really great! The only thought going through my mind is that maybe I should have read Simon first (Simon Vs The Homosapien Agenda), but I will 100% be picking that one up in the near future.

As for after I finish this book.. I really want to read A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab. The fact I haven’t read this yet is actually upsetting! I love Victorias writing and everything i’ve seen about this book online just seems so great.. I mean parallel londons?!..magic?!

A book on my radar.. (a book i’ve recently discovered and really interested in purchasing)

Empress Of A Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza 


The only surviving heir to an ancient Kalusian dynasty, RHEE has spent her life training to destroy the people who killed her family. Now, on the eve of her coronation, the time has finally come for Rhee to claim her throne – and her revenge.

ALYOSHA is a Wraetan who has risen above his war refugee origins to find fame as the dashing star of a DroneVision show. Despite his popularity, Aly struggles with anti-Wraetan prejudices and the pressure of being perfect in the public eye.

Their paths collide with one brutal act of violence: Rhee is attacked, barely escaping with her life. Aly is blamed for her presumed murder.

The princess and her accused killer are forced to go into hiding – even as a war between planets is waged in Rhee’s name. But soon, Rhee and Aly discover that the assassination attempt is just one part of a sinister plot. Bound together by an evil that only they can stop, the two fugitives must join forces to save the galaxy.

Comment: I will admit I have seen this cover floating around social media for quite a few months, but I didn’t know what the actual book was about, but recently researched about it & it seems really interesting, also i’ve really been in the mood for more sci-fi! also again, the cover is gorgeous.


Apart from reading.. i’m also writing! yay. It’s still in a very early stage, I might post snippets in the (WAAAAY) future if all goes well. I’m just happy that words are actually flowing again, its been a while. On my previous WIP, I had to stop, I might go back to it one day.. it just didn’t feel right at that moment.

As usual i’m also drowing in university work! yay. I haven’t talked about my units on here before, but for my final major project my title is ‘Banned Books’ & for my industry research project i’m doing Iconic book designers! are you seeing a pattern here? pretty sure my own classmates are sick of me talking about books, ha.

Now I need to get to sleep, I have an early class tomorrow (ugh)

Hope you’re all having a good week!

    A Darker Shade of Magic is an amazing book! I still need to read the rest of the series but I’m sure VE Schwab won’t disappoint haha. Your project sounds so interesting, too! Hope it goes well😊
