Exploring My Bookshelves 2016

A Black, Halloween-y Cover

Because we’re dark and spooky this month, so let’s show off our black covers to celebrate. I have a handily colour-coded bookshelf, that you can see in my photos above, so it isn’t hard to find my black covers. However, I want to ignore the atrocity that is the Twilight series, and celebrate one of my all time favourite books. 
Gone Girl
Gone Girl, of course! I’m obsessed with this book, I still feel shocked by that ending every time I think about it. Sure, the photo is terrible with that lighting, but I was a new book photographer, okay? 

If you want to see my thoughts on this book, I’ve reviewed it for the first time here, and a spoiler-filled review after a re-read here

What’s Gone Girl about?

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
