Hi strangers!

So...I want to ask you something! ^.^

I love books. And I read a lot....such as this last week I've already read 7 books! (Well I have to time now I don't have studies and work is only twice a week....sigh) 

I want to ask...what are your favourite books and do you have any recommendations? 

Obviously favourites are hard to choose, better to say what do you recommend first to someone, Only recently have I noticed that when I go on amazon...I'm looping in the same circles! I want fresh ideas! I am the only person in my small group of friends who reads on a regular basis, one of them hasn't read a book in years! Although I managed to get her to read half a page of a book xD

I'm always buying books, I'd rather buy them in a shop rather than online but there is only 1 shop where I live that sells more than 1 wall of books! I know one of the guys who works there and he believes I have about 8 shelves of books from how often I'm there!

As I am asking for recommendations...I will give some too!! I generally read sci-fi/fantasy novels, often dipping into YA because I am a child at heart...so lets see how interesting this is!

1. Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
    This book.....I love this, I've reread it multiple times and have his second book sat on my desk waiting to be read! It's my go to     book for everyone! Girl, Boy, young, old...It's great! It's obviously suitable for this era with the gaming theme but it includes a       boat load of 80's pop culture! Just read it!

2. Mind Games - Teri Terry
    I did say I like this genre of books....I originally picked this book up by mistake believing it to be another book thats on my TBR     but I'm so glad I did! Again, theres the technology vibe but with a lot of mysterious features. I cried at a point in this book! I         just think this was incredible and can't wait to read the rest of Terrys other series (have read the first book in the Slated series)

3. The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken
    I will argue that this is one of my favourite trilogies! This branches more into the the YA route but is a fantastic read! It follows     a group of teens who are just trying to live in a world (America) that's afraid of children as they have developed 'abilities'. Kids     are taken from a young age and kept in camps. The protagonist is then broken out and chaos ensues. This is such a great read,     again I've read this multiple times and laughed and cried everytime! I stand by that YOU MUST READ THIS SERIES

4. Feed - Mira Grant
    Feed is a zombie apocalypse book...but not so much focused on the action! I love my zombies but I love the way this books           involves them. Here, the breakout happened years ago and they have learned to live with the danger through large amounts of       testing and safety measures. However, more than an action book this has a heavy focus on politics. We follow a team of young     reporters who have been invited to join and report a campaign (major news businesses died out and everyone follows online         blogs etc) and with the way the world is there is a fight for the position that will get dirty. It's a fantastic book that isn't                 mindlessly about a zombie attack! Although I still don't like how the series ended

5. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
    With all of the hype around Go Set A Watchman (which is sat on my bedside table...) I forget how many people haven't read the     original book! I know I wouldn't have read the book if it wasn't for school! It's not something I would pick up and read without         someone telling me its good! I adore the book and the way it touches themes, the characters are well developed and the               storyline is great! They're developed enough that for an english assessment we had to create a monologue as one of the               characters! I took the easy route and went for Miss Stephanie the town gossip and just nattered xD Even so, great book!!

I think I'll leave it there for now....Although I will say for a girlier read...go for Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell....wasn't overhyped ;) 
Hi!
Thought I'd say hi blah blah blah lol

It feels weird honestly, when I sorta disappeared form dA I did it to focus on my school work and however long later here I am with barely 2 weeks left of school and exams quickly approaching! So quickly that my 15 hour art exam starts tomorrow! 3 days being in a stuffy room that often makes me feel ill isn't the best way to kick off my exams! OTL

I'm prepping for it now and thought to myself 'I feel like I need adult supervision doing this' (I'm burning paper lol) and realised that I am an adult, quite often used as the adult supervision in the art department at school honestly! I'm in the mad rush moments of the art deadline (I had a bad month or 2 not long ago and did no work at all but catch up has gone very well!) and am having ideas thrown at me from all directions lol!

If all goes well I'll be attending University next year taking an art degree, apparently my interviews went well even if I did have a panic attack before one of them! I'm not too positive that I will get the grades for my first choice as I need AA...it's a little difficult lol! My backup has a much more achievable offer of BC!

I just felt like I should update you on how its been going, felt that I should have something to show for my time away and who knows...maybe I'll become active on here ;) 

Byee :heart:
I somewhat miss being an active member of dA but then i remember why I stopped.
It was because my school grades were dropping and they were important for my future.
I decided to lay off dA and restart my A Levels, changed most of my subjects.
Proud to say it paid off.
Although my maths was impossible to get any better, I got a grade which others struggle to do.
However in both Art and Sociology I achieved a grade A, the highest you can:) happy girly!
Hermitting pays off well ;D
