Kon’nichiwa, dearies! ⭐️

I haven’t enjoyed an Anime in a while, but this one had me glued to the screen, and the best was that the second season had just aired this year, so I got to see both in one go, problem now is that I’ll have to wait for season 3. Or I can read the Light Novel and not wait for that, so I bought the first one, it’s waiting on my Kindle.

After saying that, let’s recap on Classroom of the Elite, an anime that makes you doubt everyone and start saying, repeatedly, don’t trust them.

Do you really have to pay for books?

I don’t usually discuss this, but it happens and continues because half (more?) of people don’t seem to realise the work that authors put into it.

the orang-utan librarian

Erm yes, obviously. Sorry to disappoint all the people on twitter saying that if they didn’t like a book they shouldn’t have to pay for it. Even if you didn’t like a book- or indeed didn’t finish it- you still should pay for it. It’s simply awful to return a half-read book to a bookshop. It’s like returning a half-eaten ham sandwich to Tescos because you got halfway through and realised you wanted cheese instead.

But the point of this post is not to shame thieves people on social media who don’t want to pay for things they buy (okay maybe it is a little) but to offer another alternative to things you can do instead of stealing books:

  • Use the library
  • Go for a walk
  • Talk to your friends online
  • Basically anything- no one forced you to buy that book.

People really don’t seem to get the damage that…

Flashback: The 5th Wave

“You can only call someone crazy if there’s someone else who’s normal. Like good and evil. If everything was good, then nothing would be good.”

Hello, dearies! 📙

This is not a book review.

Here we are again, another week, another throwback or flashback as it is, a Friday Flashback. Last week, I started this little section with a review (sort of) for The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago, which marked the first look into the past, and it was a TBT.

Now, this week I decided to go with a book that I loved in the past, and on the second round of reading it, The 5th Wave. I have a review already for this back, and it was done a long time ago, you can check it out here: The 5th Wave review.

This time around, I wanted to talk about some of the characters and the story. Let’s begin. 📚

“She was spirit and presence, as rare and brilliant as snowflakes in sunlight, and he could not bring himself to harm her.”
The Smoke Thief

Hello, dearies! I hope your day/night is going well.

This book challenge was originally, did not finish do not care, but as that is a little too much for me, on the negative side. I decided to give it my own spin and share three books that I didn’t finish and did finish, and why.

Enjoy! 📲
