It’s Just Ann by Bel Watson

Title: It’s Just Ann

Author: Bel Watson

Published: March 1st, 2015

Genre: YA Contemporary

Rating: 4.5/5

Summary from Wattpad: 

“Let’s get the facts straight. I am no heroine and I will never bring pride to my family. I am what you could call a failure. My grades? Average. My social life? Average. Talents? Hmm… well, I think I have none. I’m not exceptional in any way and I know I’m a disappointment for my father. And in this day and age there’s no way I could just take my father’s place to save him from a horrible fate. There is a huge weight on my shoulders but I can’t carry it no matter how hard I try. I have no idea what I can do, I only know what I can’t do. Yet I still would try anything to make my father proud, even just once. Oh right, I forgot to tell you whom I was name after. Yes, I was named after Mulan, that bright heroine who saved China and brought pride to her family. Talk about big expectations. But Mulan doesn’t suit me, so it’s just Ann.”

Review:

I really loved this book I found the book on Wattpad and you can find it here. This book is a part of the “Aware Princess” series which started as a fan-fiction series about One Direction (I was/still am a big Directioner) but morphed into general fiction. This is one of my favorite books and I’m surprised it hasn’t been published yet. The plot is very interesting and dynamic and it explores friendships and familial relationships. It also explores the idea of stepping up in life to meet new challenges such a defeating the huns or taking over your father’s company. What really struck me about this book was how diverse this cast was which I really enjoyed. The author strove to create three-dimensional characters and also made these characters diverse without making them into clichés. The male leads in this were 110% swoon worthy. Can someone please get me a Charlie because he is a dreamboat? This book was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it also it’s very accessible on Wattpad.

The Fall-Time Cozy Book Tag!

Hey guys so I’ve been seeing this tag floating around and I most recently saw it on Book Snacks. So, I’d thought I’d do this tag to celebrate this wonderful time of the year! I hope you enjoy!


Crunching Leaves:The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges, and yellows on the cover.

I choose Taken At Dusk by C.C Hunter because I absolutely love this fantasy series and this cover totally screams fall sunset to me!


Cozy Sweater: It’s finally cold enough to wear warm cozy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?

A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall is soooo very cute! I love the way she uses different perspectives and it reminds me of how sweet and sorta awkward having a crush can be :).


Fall Storm: The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book or genre that you would like to read on a stormy day 

As you guys know my two favorite genres are fantasy and contemporary. 🙂 This is a really hard decision but I think I’d read some fantasy books because they are the perfect addition to any stormy day. But if I were to read something contemporary I would definitely read Eleanor & Park that book is so cute. ❤


Cool Crisp Air: Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?

I would definitely trade place with Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter! First of all her name is pretty awesome, she has some amazing friends, and she has magical powers! Also, she is super sweet and caring 🙂


Hot Apple Cider: What under hyped book do you want to see become the biggest, hottest thing?

I really love this book it doesn’t have great review on Goodreads but I found it to be deliciously creepy and really captivating.


Coat, Scarves and Mittens: The weather has turned cold and it’s time to cover up. What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?

I actually really like this book it’s just the covers a little bit cheesy. I’m mostly embarrassed by it because when I got it in seventh grade from the library my mom asked me about the cover and winked. So, that basically made it the most embarrassing book over to me after that. 🙂


Pumpkin Spice: What’s your favorite fall time comfort food/foods?

Okay, so tea isn’t technically a food but I love it during this time of the year. Specifically the Candy Cane Green Tea from Trader Joe’s which is MY FAVORITE TEA OF ALL TIME! You have to try it!


Well, I hoped you enjoyed my tag I loved doing it it was so much fun! I tag all of you guys and if you would like just comment down below if you’re planning on doing it and I’ll include your blog in my post so people can check it out!

XOXO,

Madison

A SONG FROM ME TO YOU:

Little More Time by Ciaran Lavery

“Gimme just a little more time and I’ll be flowing to your door.

Just like a seed all my moves are slow I’m always heading for unsure.

I like to think I’m not a complicated man, but then again I can’t be sure.

So give me just a little more time, you know, you’ll give me til the early morn’.

I play the flute in a rag doll suit, and you wear the overcoat.

I never wanted you more than the time you buttoned I across your throat. You held my arm like an anchor would tie itself onto a boat.”
