A Definitive List of My OTP’s, Ships and Bookish Couples

IMG_3345Happy hump day, lovelies.

Whether you’re currently single or in a relationship, only those living under an actual rock would have missed the abundance of chocolates, flowers and hearts proclaiming Valentines Day *cough cough Singles Awareness cough* last week. So, because love is very much still in the air and I felt like doing something fun behold – a definitive list [so far] of my official OTP’s, ships and favorite bookish couples.

Now this is not by any means, a ranking. Frankly, how could I even begin to rank all of my ships? Essentially, I’m providing a list, starting from my very first OTP to my most current. Please note: this list is forever growing. That and the fact that your girl basically has a dang armada of ships at this point [shame who?] so I’m only including the main ones.

So, let’s fangirl…

Review: Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

20983366

I’ve been orphaned by my time. My future is gone. 

Etta Spencer didn’t know she was a traveller until the day she emerged both miles and years from her home. Now, robbed of the powerful object that was here only hope of saving her mother, Etta finds herself stranded once more, cut off from Nicholas – the eighteenth-century privateer she loves – and her natural time.

When Etta inadvertently stumbles into the heart of the Thorns, the renegade travellers who stole the astrolabe from her, she vows to destroy it once and for all.

Devastated by Etta’s disappearance, Nicholas has enlisted the unlikely help of Sophia Ironwood and a cheeky mercenary-for-hire to track her down. But after a deadly mistake derails their search, they discover an ancient power that threatens to eradicate the timeline as they know it.

In this stunning conclusion to the Passenger series, 1# New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Bracken charts a fascinating course through time that will captivate readers.

The Titanic Book Tag

Related imageUnless you’re a Reading By Starlight newbie it’s pretty much common knowledge that I adore James Cameron’s Titanic. I mean, at this point in my said devotion, I think I deserve an honorable mention in the credits.

Anyway, in honor of Valentines Day this week [or Singles Awareness Day – Whoo hoo!], and because I just went on a bit of a Titanic bender I figured what better way to celebrate the love or, like me, lament being single than to do the Titanic Book Tag?

A quick disclaimer: this tag seems to have originated in the Spanish and French book community so unfortunately I have been unable to find the original creator. I did not create this tag. I have merely translated and edited the original tag after being inspired.

So, with that out of the way, let’s get into it…

Review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

20983362

This journey is only the beginning.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Pulled back through time to 1776 in the midst of a fierce sea battle,  she has travelled not only miles, but years from home. 

With the arrival of this unusual passenger on his ship, privateer Nicholas Carter has to confront a past that he can’t escape and the powerful Ironwood family who won’t let him go without a fight. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value; one they believe only Etta can find.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by an enigmatic traveller. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta from Nicholas, and her way home, forever.

Can you actually believe that we are already one month into 2019? Life sure does come at you fast, am I right?

This year, in order to attempt to organise my life and stay on track with my 2019 TBR and reading goals [which I also never post] I am making the effort to post monthly wrap ups.

So, here it goes.
