"How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity."

"After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother, or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up."

I've read so many mixed reviews on these books. But in my honest opinion I really liked it. From the very first page, to the very last one, I enjoyed reading it. There may have been a few times where I thought "Yes, there could've been a different ending". The author could've taken it to another level. It may not have been perfect. But for ones I've decided not to pick everything apart and analyze it down to the very last sentence. I mean, all in all I loved it and I'm going to leave it at that.

I take the crown when it comes to worrying about very small and insignificant things. This year however, I feel like I've downgraded from empress to queen. I no longer feel terrified around other people and I've become a lot more independent. I still get all coaked up and have to battle anxiety before going to the hair dresser, dentist and meetings. But I've made progress and at some point in my life I've decided this is no longer going to be a recurring thing. Another good thing that has happened this year is that we got a new family member in the shape of a little pug. This little creature holds my heart and I love him to the moon and back! He's brought so much joy to my life and I couldn't be more thankful for my very own little ball of fur. I then had my 22nd birthday and I have to say that this year's birthday has been the best one yet. I got to spend it with my favorite people and got some lovely gifts. I'm still as tiny as ever but I've survived another year!

Happy New Year!

This year the weather gods have somehow decided to skip out on the snow. I'm longing for that wintery nostalgic feeling you get when you open the front door and the cold bites at your nose. Not freezing cold, but cold enough for it to feel like winter. I want to walk in a winter wonderland where in the lane snow is glistening and Jack Frost is nipping at your nose. I hardly think that's too much to ask for. Or am I wrong? We did have a bit of snow the first few days of November but it didn't last very long. Walther and I went for a walk as the first snow fell and walking around with snowflakes all around you is one of the most magical feelings. I'm lucky enough to have a dog who loves playing in the snow. I just wish it would stay for a while longer and have time to settle on the ground. Maybe next year we'll have a magical winter with snowmen and snowfall.

Christmas gift from my sister


There are those few days between Christmas and the New Year where you get to relax and stuff your face full with leftovers from christmas dinner. I believe this lovely mid-week is actually meant for watching christmas films and making the most of what's left of the holidays. And if you're lucky enough and have some money left from christmas shopping, maybe find yourself a bargain on the sales if you happen to be out and about browsing the shelves.

The run up to christmas always seems to last forever. We spend most of our time christmas shopping, wrapping presents, decorating the house and stocking the fridge all whilst trying to squeeze in as many festive activites as possible. And most importantly, hoping it will snow on christmas eve. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Always has been, always will be. Everything looks really wintery and lights are scattered everywhere. And even though this year the snow was glistening with its abscence I've had a really nice christmas with lovely gifts and I got to spend it with my family and relatives. I almost don't want it to end. To me christmas is about spending time with your loved ones, being selfless and spread cheer. To let the people around you know how much they mean to you. As a kid we used to celebrate christmas at my grandparents house and it's one of my favorite christmas memories by far. It would take us around two hours by car to get there, but ones we did, it felt like the day went on for hours and hours and lasted forever. This year we've had a couple of hectic days at work but I think as soon as christmas has gone by it will calm down a bit. Hope everyone's had a lovely christmas!

"October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces." - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix


The weather has gone back to feeling very autumnal. And in the hopes of restoring the feeling of it being christmas I've spent most of today curled up underneath a blanket watching christmas films. I have been feeling a bit anxious these past few days so I needed a relaxing day at home without any stress. Tomorrow it's back to work! ♥

Every year I go on a hunt to find myself the perfect dress to wear on christmas eve. However, I rarely find one I like and I'm left at the last minute trying to decide what to wear. This year I'm well on time and I've opted for a red dress as it feels the most christmassy. I would usually go for white of gray but I figured it would be fun to wear something else for a change. I've ordered the "off the shoulder" dress to the left and the the one in the middle (which sadly did not fit, so I placed another order for a similar dress and that's the one I'll be wearing for christmas!). ♥
