Secret Life of A Book Blogger Tag

Hello, so i saw this tag on Bookmark Lit a few weeks ago an decided to do it since most of my July posts are Tags anyway and i haven't done a tag in ages. And there are a few Questions that i am going to skip over purely because i don't have any answers for them. 

How long have you been a blogger?

Ummm, on and off for about 3 years . I started this blog in 2014 but it has been very on and off because of other commitments unfortunately.

At what point will you stop blogging?

At the moment, i cannot see myself stopping. I may take breaks from time to time but when i do take breaks i miss it terribly so i think i will carry on until i stop and no longer miss it.

What is the best thing about blogging?

Finding people who love the same things and connecting with them also sharing my love of books.

What is the worst part? What do you do to make it okay?

The worst part is probably having a schedule and not being able to stick to it, or it would have to be the fact i end up spending far too much time on my laptop.

How long does it take you to make/find pictures?

I don't use pictures a lot, but when i do i make them using Canva and it is so easy so it doesn't take long at all.

What do you wear when you write your blog posts?

It depends on the time of day, if it is in the morning workout gear, the rest of the day i am normally in jeans and a blouse and if like right now i am writing at night i am in my Pj's (Christmas PJ's in July)

How long does it take you to prepare?

Not long, but it depends on the post, spoiler reviews take longer to prepare for than spoiler free and Tags i just answer them as i write.

So that is it for now
Until Next Time
Happy Reading

Ultimate Harry Potter Tag


Hello, so i should probably put this up on the 31st of July but i feel like being a rebel and putting it up on the 10th instead so this is a tag i found while literally searching for Harry Potter Tags in Google and the one i found doesn't have a creator so if you know who created it please comment below so i can correct it. Thank You....
Lets Get Started ......

1) Favourite book?
Prisoner of Azkaban
I don't know why but i think it's probably because of Lupin and Sirius.


2) Least favourite book?
Goblet of Fire
i honestly don't know why but i just never liked it.

3) Favourite movie?
Deathly Hallow's - Part 2
It is just a brilliant film for a book to movie it's good and just for a fitting end to an era

4) Least favourite movie?
Deathly Hallow's - Part 1
I just think most of it is irrelevant and i know a lot of people will disagree with that but most of it was the golden trio sitting in a tent.

5) Favourite quote?

“Do you remember me telling you we were practised non-verbal spells?”
“Yes.”
“Yes sir.”
“No need to call me sir, professor.”


6) Favourite Weasley?
Ron
I just really like him and i don't know why, but i feel like Mrs Weasley i don't want to choose between my babies.

7) Favourite female character?
Hermione 
She is the best female character ever to be created in any bookish/film world.

8) Favourite villain.
Umbridge
Because everybody has known an Umbridge in their lives be it in school or at work.

9) Favourite male character?
Lupin
I always loved Lupin and the whole lonesome thing he has going on and his entrance just like here eat this chocolate. 

10) Favourite professor?
McGonagall 
'Have a biscuit Potter' 

11) Would you rather A) wash Snape’s hair or B) spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself?
Wash Snapes hair
i would kill Lockhart and then be expelled for killing a professor, if i had to listen to him ramble on. Snape's hair i could hack that for like 10 minutes.

12) Would you rather duel A) an elated Bellatrix or B) and angry Molly?
A Elated Bellatrix
Purely because she will get distracted easily and Molly is scary AF when she is angry.

13) Would you rather travel to Hogwarts via A) Hogwarts Express or B) Flying Car?
Hogwart's Express
No doubt in my mind, the Hogwarts Express seems more magical.

14) Would you rather A) Kiss Voldemort or B) give Umbridge a bubble bath?
Kiss Voldermort
It doesn't say where i have to kiss him and even if if was on the lips, Toad face would be naked and i am pretty sure i would throw up.

15) Would you rather A) ride a Hippogriff or B) ride a Firebolt?
Firebolt
Hippogriffs are a bit temperamental and i could handle the broom better.

16) Is there a character you felt differently about in the movies?
Ginny
They changed her so much from the books instead of being strong she just seemed really flat and boring.

17) Is there a movie you preferred to the book?
No
The Books are always better than the films, hands down.

18) Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?
Michael Gambon
I loved both, but preferred Gambon in the end.

19) Your top thing (person or event) that wasn’t in the movie that you wanted there the most?
Tonks and Lupin Relationship
It was there but not much. 

20) If you could remake any of the Harry Potter movies which would it be?
Half Blood Prince
I would make it closer to the book

21 Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?
Ravenclaw 
Only because i am book smart

22) Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore?
Hufflepuff
That was about two years ago, and i took it again when they relaunched Pottermore and i was still Hufflepuff, i enjoy being a hufflepuff and an proud of it. 

23) Which class would be your favourite?
History of Magic
History is my all time favourite subject. And i cannot imagine not loving History of Magic.

24) Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?
Accio
I am forever losing things so this would help a ton.

25) Which character do you think you’d instantly become friends with?
Ginny
I relate to Book Ginny so much and she is like most of my friends in the real world

26) If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?
Invisibility Cloak
Sneaking around and being able to hide with no effort, yep that is my kind of object.

27) Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?
Not really, but if i had to choose it would be Vernon getting his comeuppance.

28) Favourite Marauder?
Padfoot, Mooney, or Prongs
I'm not choosing, you can't make me.

29) If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?
Fred
His death still kills me, i understand why but i don't like it.

30) Hallows or Horcruxes?
Hallow's 
You have to commit murder to make a Horcrux and i just don't have that in me.

So that is it for this tag
Until Next Time
Happy Reading

Breathless In Love - Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully

Title - Breathless in Love
Author - Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully
Series - The Maverick Billionaires Series #1
ISBN9781938127977
Genre - Romance - Contemporary
My Copy - Purchased
FormatKindle
Where You Can Find It - Goodreads - Barnes & Noble - Amazon UK - Amazon US
Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.
When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.
Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible? 
First let me start by saying Bella Andre is one of my favourite romance authors and all her series are sort of connected her characters pop up in each of her series, and that is an aspect i love, but i was hesitant to start this series as i have found with a lot of other authors like Andre that each series gets repetitive but i have found this is not the case with Andre's series. 

I didn't know much about this book going in, and i am glad about that, i love going into these sort of books 'blind' it made me fall in love with the story as i was reading it. 

The story is much like every other romance, boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy does something they brake up and then get back together. That isn't a spoiler it is literally what happens in 95% of romance books. On the other hand i loved the twist of her caring for her younger brother as a carer for a family member myself i can fully relate to her on that aspect. The main reason i gave it four stars and not five was purely because of the format that is like every other Romance book.

Harper is such a strong female lead and that is something that i have gotten used to while reading Andre's books, but Harper seems stronger than most and she was the best part of this book. Will was also a big plus as well. Will's interactions with Harper's brother really shine in this book and those were some of the scenes that shone the most and made my heart melt.

I cannot wait to read the rest of this series the Maverick Boys had me captivated.

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
