“Turn to Page 394” Thursdays (#1)

ezgif-2335726244Finalllyyy! This is actually happening! My first “Turn to Page 394” Thursday post! It’s midnight here, so yes, it is Thursday now hahaha. I would normally post this later, during the day, but I will be leaving town for Canada Day weekend, and will therefore not have timeee…So, anyway, I find it fitting that the first book I will use for the first post of this blog hop should by my favourite Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Before you ask, no, I did not pick this book because the first three don’t have enough pages (I think), although Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is my 2nd favourite book in the series. I mean, I could have picked book 4, if this was about page count, but book 4 kind of…made me angry at times, so it’s lower down on my list. Hahaha.

It is 4 a.m. when they come for me. I am already awake, strung out on the fear that they will come, and fear that they won’t. When I finally hear the click of the latch on the dormitory door, I have only a second to brace myself before-“

Summary: There is no chosen one in this story.

Avery Gray was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and happened to make a decision that altered her future forever. It happens to all of us every day.

Avery is a size twelve university student with a penchant for dry humour, and she’s as normal as they come. Up until now, the biggest choice she’s had to make was glasses or contacts? At the moment, it’s stay and save, or leave and be saved.

Allow me to explain. One rainy afternoon, Avery had to make a choice: go through the alleyway or around it. Two possible options. One would have had her future continue on as planned, the other would ensure that her future never remained the same again. She unknowingly went with the latter.

“Turn to Page 394” Thursdays

ezgif-2335726244.gifSooo I just realized that since I could not find anyone else online who has come up with this book blogging meme, I should make a post about it! Call out for others to join me…and such…hah.

During my search for daily themed memes to post on my blog (because sometimes I take longer to read books, especially when I’m busy, and I don’t want my blog to just sit…unused), I came across multiple memes which sounded fun and interesting.

While selecting the ones I wanted to match up to each weekday, I found myself stuck on what to post on Thursdays.

Wishlist Wednesdays (#1)

I finally have time for another daily meme!

I’ve been excited to make a Wishlist Wednesday purse since I put my daily meme list together, but I was always busy on those days. I took a sick day today though, haha, and although I worked from home, I have finished for the day and have decided to dedicate some time to my blog (and my lovely readers of course ❤)

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it’s entirely up to you), that we can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

Wishlist Wednesday is also hosted by the lovely Pen to Paper, and this was her most recent Wishlist Wednesday post!!

So, the book I will be discussing for this Wishlist Wednesday is……..

Gifted cover NEW 300.pngSo, now that I have finished the amazing And I Darken by Kiersten White, I have decided to pick up Gifted, an e-copy of which was kindly provided to me by the author, in exchange for a review!

I read the book summary and was intrigued by the plot!
