3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day 3

Yay me for sticking to schedule (for once)!

Hullo wonderful folks! How’re you all today?


So today brings about the end of the quotes tag (sadly); and as it is Day 3, you may want to check out my previous choices and nominees for Days 1 and 2, maybe you’ll like them as much as I did!

So today’s quote is..umm.. what can I say.. It’s extra special. Both because it holds a very relatable meaning, and because this comes from the very book that got me into reading.

So.. where are my drummers?



I know it’s just a good ol’ John Green and that most (or all?) of the hype about his books is gone but I just can’t not respect that man and his books; they’re just so precious~ And yes, it was that fateful year, back in 2014, when that book came out, that I decided to give this ‘reading‘ activity a go. And what do you know? 2 years later, here I am, sitting aside with my nose buried in a book, thinking about books and–you guessed it– ranting about books.


So thank you John Green for making me realise that there was a world out there filled with endless possibilities– a world where I could lose myself to, and yet find more about who I am nonetheless.


And besides, this quote is rather fitting for the last day of a quote-tag, don’t you think?


So yeah– now onto our last three nominees!

  2. BookslayerReads
  3. Clockwork Bibliophile


And that’s the end of it! Have you read The Fault In Our Stars? Any of John Green’s books? What quotes do you like from his books? Whatever it is, I’d love to hear your thoughts!


Loads of love,

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children– Book Review 

I couldn’t just start the next book without reviewing this one here… Okay.. So, after my exams ended, I decided to feast my eyes on something that could take my mind away from all the emotions I’ve been through there.

To make it short, I’ve encountered an amazingly written, perfectly portrayed and awesomely paced novel that had me glued to its fervent pages.

Meet Jacob Portman, a teenage boy who, like us all, believe in the fairytales narrated by his favourite man— his grandfather. Many times did he dream and hope of leading an adventurous life that could compare to his grandfather’s; but his weakling of a self had been rather unfortunately keen on crushing those fantasies.

Following the quote “Be careful what you wish for”, Jacob does get his very own adventure when he stumbles upon The Home of Peculiar Children; who, for the fact, were bombed when a Nazi bomb was dropped on top of them.

And so begins his peculiar quest; and with it, he discovers many many things; facts about his grandfather that were never told or never believed in, things he didn’t know could actually exist, and power he never really thought he ever held.

The book takes a smooth turn from a contemporary realistic piece into a fascinating page-turner of wit and historical fiction.

A peculiar read indeed; and one that I absolutely loved.
