“Sometimes I get this feeling of nothingness. It’s not a bad feeling. It’s a calm feeling. When everything is quiet. No expectations. It doesn’t happen very often” (Forsman, pages not numbered).

I was interested in reading The End of the F***ing World after binge-watching the Netflix show of the same name based on the graphic novel. The show, like the book, is a dark comedy focusing on seventeen-year-old James and sixteen-year-old Alyssa. James believes he’s a psychopath, and after disfiguring his hand and killing multiple animals, he decides he wants to know what it’s like to kill a person and chooses his classmate Alyssa to be his first victim. Alyssa is looking for escape from her uncaring mom and perverted stepfather, she finds this escape in James whom she falls for hard and fast, and will go to the ends of the earth for him.

Bookmark Monday is a weekly feature by Guiltless Reader.

Happy Bookmark Monday bookworms! It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, huh?

I haven’t been having much luck with bookstagram lately. The algorithm is really messing with my likes, not that it should matter, but it’s frustrating going from posting pictures and some people seeing it to no one seeing them.

I guess you can see them here, and that’s something! Continue reading

Hello bookworms, time for another exciting edition of Top Ten Tuesday with one of my favourite themes. Re-reading books! This list was actually hard to come up with because their are SO MANY books I could re-read forever, but then how would I read any new books?

I didn’t bother giving explanations for why I would re-read them, if they’re on the list then there’s obviously something about them, some spark, or some special thing inside of them that makes me want to go back to these stories. Continue reading
