    • Great minds! 😉 I do have a HUGE crush on Emma Watson which may have influenced the outcome somewhat haha..

      It is the perfect book for people that are going to university, are at uni, have been to uni, or have always wondered what life is really like. It is a typical British uni experience in the modern day. Very funny and realistic 🙂

  1. This is such a fun idea and I definitely agree with a lot of your choices. Beauty and the Beast is hands down the favourite 2017 release, although I’ve not seen Thor Ragnarok yet so I won’t make my final judgment just yet.

    Crooked Kingdom still gets me all worked up. I seriously feel like I need to have a re-reading session of that duology.

    Thank you so, so much for featuring me on this. You’re the best!! 😀

    • The Six of Crows duology is the best thing I have discovered this year! I really want to get my hands on The Language of Thorns soon!!

      You’re welcome, I always look out for your reviews and posts. 🙂

  2. Aw thank you so much Richard for including my discussion on YA Hate!! This was really sweet of you, i’m so glad you found it to be one of your favourite posts to read this year. You have made my day! xx
