S4S – books that made me angry | selliott16

Hello! Happy Sunday to you all! 

It’s the World Cup final today AND the men’s Wimbledon final… I shall be partaking in beverages and viewing of both! 

Today’s #SixforSunday post is brought to you by the emotion: anger. Today, we’re talking:
Books that made you angry

Now, I don’t get angry often, so books that make me angry (for whatever reason) stick in my head! There’s a common theme with some of my angry books… I’ll see if you can spot it!
The Exact Opposite of Okay – Laura Steven
While this book made me HOWL (thanks Izzy), Danny’s behaviour made me SO ANGRY. Ugh, Danny.

Snowglobe: a magical tale you’ll get lost, and found, in

“When daydreamer Clementine discovers a mysterious house standing in the middle of town that was never there before, she is pulled towards it by the powerful sense of a mother she never knew. The place is full of snowglobes, swirling with stars and snow and each containing a trapped magician, watched over by Gan, the bitter keeper of the house. One of these is Dylan, a boy who teases her in the real world but who is now desperate for her help.”

As a massive fan of Amy Wilson’s other books (A Far Away Magic and A Girl Called Owl),…

BLOG TOUR: Floored | selliott16

Today is an exciting day here at A Little But A Lot. Today’s post is a little different to normal. Today is my stop on the group tour for the brilliant Floored.

The way this worked is: bloggers were grouped into 7s (just like there were 7 authors for the original novel) and then we each had to use one of the first lines of the characters as inspiration for a post. As you can see from the blog tour graphic, I was paired with some brilliant bloggers (all of the links to their blogs are at the bottom of this post) for this venture and I even managed to get the line I most wanted!
Today’s post…

BOOK BLOG: Floored | selliott16

Floored: what happens when you put some of YA’s biggest names together? Brilliance.

“When they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t…

Mid-Year Freak Out tag | selliott16

So… I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this (that I can tell) BUT I did see it over on my brilliant buddy Cora’s blog… so I thought I would do it anyway!

Last week, I did a little half year round up, but I thought this blog tag was a quick way of rounding things up more concisely and with a bit of fun thrown in! If you’d like to do this tag yourself, go for it! I’m not going to tag anyone necessarily, but let’s all spread the bookish love!

Here we go!

1. Best book you’ve read this year?
The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie. Hands down best book I’ve read this year so far. I just think…

“Miss, are your our main teacher?!” | selliott16

“Miss, are you our main teacher? There won’t be someone else teaching us all the time? Will it be you?”
Why yes, yes kids I am your main teacher!

It’s been A YEAR. But, last week, I FINALLY got to do my first transition day and I just adored it. We had such a brilliant day.

(A little background for those who don’t know my situation. I’ve worked at this school for 8 years now. I started as a TA, wanted more responsibility and was very lucky to be given a HLTA position. Having always wanted to be a…

How are we all today? What is going on in your lives today? I would like to hope you are participating in #SixforSunday in whichever means you wish. Go and share the bookish love my friends!

Today’s #SixforSunday prompt asks for:
Books which made me laugh

This is another one of those that I could go on for a while. I cry and laugh at a lot of books. I’m that person. I FEEL a lot at books. Sue me.
Coco Pinchard books – Robert Bryndza

Man. I love Coco Pinchard. I miss her a lot. She’s a disaster, but the books are HILARIOUS. I will deffo be finding time to…
