Musing Mondays / 7th November


I haven't really been active on Amy's Bookish Life much recently and I do apologise for that. Life has been so busy with University, Work and trying to have somewhat of a social life, so this blog I admit has been neglected. However, I am now going to be working myself into a routine with regards to this blog. I am hopefully going to be posting 1 or 2 book reviews a week, along with a personal post and a few memes for fun. Which brings me onto the next topic - I am going to be doing Musing Mondays again! So enjoy!


Hosted by Books and a BeatMusing Monday's is a weekly meme where you answer one of the of the following questions and then a random one.

  • I'm currently reading
  • Up next I think I'll read
  • I brought the following book(s) in the past week
  • I'm super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish news)
  • I'm really upset by (book/author/bookish news)
  • I can't wait to get a copy of..
  • I wish I could read ___ but..
  • I blogged about ___ this past week..
Up next I think I'll read...

I am going to be reading When We Collided by Emery Lord next. I grabbed a copy when I was at London Comic Con last week and I was instantly taken in by the gorgeous cover and the blurb. I am looking forward to devouring it!

Meet Vivi and Jonah: A girl and a boy whose love has the power save or destroy them.

Vivi and Jonah couldn't be more different. Vivi craves anything joyful or beautiful that life can offer. Jonah has been burdened by responsibility for his family ever since his father died. As summer begins, Jonah resigns himself to another season of getting by. Then Vivi arrives, and suddenly life seems brighter and better. Jonah is the perfect project for Vivi, and things finally feel right for Jonah. Their love is the answer to everything. But soon Vivi's zest for life falters, as her adventurousness becomes true danger-seeking. Jonah tries to keep her safe, but there's something important Vivi hasn't told him.



Random question - Do you prefer fast-paced novels, or slow, descriptive novels?

That is a hard question as I like both, depending on what I am in the mood for. However, I think I am going to have to say slow and descriptive. I love reading books where the atmosphere and plot takes a while to build as it keeps my interest and makes me want to read more. I am a big lover of description too as with description you get into the moment and you can almost see yourself there in the book with all the characters. I feel with fast-paced novels that the plot is over too quickly and you are left feeling a bit empty.

  1. Interesting perspective on fast-paced or slower novels. I thought I preferred fast-paced novels but you've got me reconsidering my answer.

  2. That really is a gorgeous book cover! And the blurb sounds interesting too. I too love description but I also love a fast pace that keeps things moving.
