Dog Print

||    Shorts - Forever 21      Collared Shirt - New Look   || 
Just a quick little outfit for you I wore the other day and quite liked. Both items are quite old but I still love them. Apologies for my messy hair - It went a bit frizzy. There is a collar on the shirt but these pictures don't give it much justice :( :D
Just to let you know I am away from tomorrow until Friday and I'm pretty sure I won't have internet so sorry if comments aren't replied for a while or emails are not answered. I will reply to everything as soon as I get back. See you soon :)
Lots Of Love, Helena xox

Rainbow Spines Book Tag

So I realised I haven't done a book post in about 6 months, which is appalling considering reading is one of the things I love most in life. But I saw this tag and I thought it was little different to other book reviews so I decided on doing it. Plus I managed to get so good photos in the nice weather.
Red - Heist Society by Ally Carter is one of my favourite books of all time. The characters are likable and different, the plot is amazing with twist and turns and the robbery scenario is so clever and unexpected I would never have guessed it. Love this.
Orange - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins is a book I know most people didn't enjoy but I quite liked the conclusion to the trilogy. I agree the first was by far the best but I think this was a good ending which tied up everything well and the series as a whole is amazing.
Yellow - Innocent by Anne Cassidy is a thought-provoking story of betrayal and love and I think it should get more credit. I loved how it all tied up at the end.
Green - The Star Of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson is a beautiful,under-rated tale of mystery, love and finding yourself. Annika is such a innocent, lovable character and you feel like you are living the troubles and happiness with her.
Blue - The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. This book is ridiculous. It is probably the most heart-warming yet heart-breaking and also best ever, books I have ever read. This book made me laugh and cry and shows you how special life is. Must. Read.
Indigo - Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I am a huge, huge Divergent fan so I kind of had to include one of them. This book has so much drama and anticipation and the last line is just insane. I was dying at the end and I am desperate for the final book.
Violet - Amy Green Summer Secrets by Sarah Web is a wonderful, easy going read which I absolutely love and I think is great in the summer. Amy and Clover are lovely and very relatable and I think this is a great light-hearted book everyone will enjoy.

I hope you enjoy this post. I loved writing it and I think I might do a few more book posts every couple of months. Have you read any of these? What do you think of them? Are there any you would add to my rainbow book spines?
