Sam Fender Pop Up Shop | Sunny Snippets

Oh, silver tongue suits and cartoons, they rule my world, singing, it’s a high time for hypersonic missiles. And when the bombs drop, darling, can you say that you’ve lived your life? Oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missiles.

Hypersonic Missiles, Sam Fender

December the fourteenth twenty-ninteen marks my first visit to the Sam Fender Pop Up Shop:

My mock exams have just finished so I thought I would treat myself (and splash some cash) at the Sam Fender Pop Up Shop! But first, I had to find it.

If you are following me on Twitter (if not, I strongly suggest you do), you will have saw that I posted about wanting to give back to the bookish blogger community. It was really good doing so! I had fun reading other people’s posts, finding out other people’s thoughts on the same books I’ve read and just overall interacting with other bloggers!

Here’s my tweet if you would like to link your own blog/post!

5 Representations I Want To See More Of In Literature

We may have different religons, different languages, different coloured skin, but we all belong to one human race.

Kofi Annan

Diversity and the quantity of different representations is something that has been in the spotlight for some time now. Finally, after many years of waiting we are FINALLY seeing some more diverse characters taking the lead roles in our new reads: more LGBT+ characters, more ethnic diverse characters, more female roles and more characters with mental health issues.

This is great! Don’t get me wrong, but literature could still continue to broaden its character portrayal horizons.

So, here are 5 more different types of representation I want to see in literature.

Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare | Review

I love Emma Carstairs and the Blackthorns. They MUST be protected at all costs–although, I am pretty sure they are perfectly capable of doing that themselves.

Lady Midnight
Cassandra Clare

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.

It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?

Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series.

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – C. S. Lewis | Review

Always a King or Queen of Narnia, always a King or Queen.

Aslan, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – C. S. Lewis

My reread of The Chronicles of Narnia is long overdue and I am glad that I could start 2020, begin a new decade my reading the book series of my childhood.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
C. S. Lewis

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are sent to stay with a kind professor who lives in the country, they can hardly imagine the extraordinary adventure that awaits them.

It all begins one rainy summer day when the children explore the professor’s rambling old house. When they come across a room with an old wardrobe in the corner, Lucy immediately opens the door and gets inside. To her amazement, she suddenly finds herself standing in the clearing of a wood on a winter after-noon, with snowflakes falling through the air. Lucy has found Narnia, a magical land of fauns and centaurs, nymphs and talking animals — and the beautiful but evil White Witch, who has held the country in eternal winter for a hundred years.

Popsugar Reading Challenge 2020 | TBR

The 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge is a year long readathon/reading challenge with a mega diverse range of prompts that you have to complete.

I am a mood reader and I sometimes find it hard to stick to TBRs (unless I’m binging a series lol) so with lots and lots of prompts to choose from, I think I won’t feel as restricted.

Here’s my TBR for the 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge!
