Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m fangirling about 22 of my favourite tropes / favourite things in books! I can be *really* picky with the books that I choose to read, and on top of that, the books that I choose to 5 star! So, with any of the tropes or elements in this list I could be completely thrown off if it was to just be upped a tiny bit, but if it’s the perfect amount than it’s most likely a 4.5 or 5 star read for me. I really am a picky reader which is why so many of my reads get a 3 star rating or somwhere around that, but more often than not, if a book has one of these elements, it’s going to get a really high rating from me!
Also, supringly, it was a lot easier to write this list than my hate list (coming soon!) so that was an honest to god shock but a good one!

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! This year I have been trying to make a conscious effort on my blog to let you guys get to know me better, and I’ve recently been trying this out on Instagram too (@allonsythornraxx). So, within that vein, I was recently binge-watching some old Sarah’s Day videos and I was feeling so inspired by how open and honest she is with her subscribers and I got inspired! So, I thought I would try and do something different to let you guys no more about my life behind the scenes and I’m taking you through what I eat in a day!
I didn’t have school last week on Monday (29/04/19) so I decided to do this on that day! Usually, I do have school but I decided to take a study day and take a bit of a mental break. So, in this post, as well as taking you through my food I’ll also show you what I do during the day!

Hey Guys! Today I’m coming at you with a tag/post/thing??? I don’t know exactly what category this fits into but, I thought I would give it a try nonetheless! I’m not totally sure how to do this post because I’ve only heard of it before, but I’m going to assume I use the letters in my blog name and recommend books that describe me and hopefully you guys can get to know me through books???? Maybe??? I really don’t know???
Also, my blog name is also pretty long so maybe get a snack and a drink!

Hi, my name is Ellyn and I get busy and then I get messy and then I get anxious and then I get anxious about being anxious and then I freeze up and live in a zone of nothingness. My bedroom was pretty much a mess for the end of 2017 and all of 2018. Most of you guys will know this, but I have gotten a few more followers this year so you can check out this post if you’re curious, but last year I had a lot of family and school troubles so the tidiness of my room was the least of my troubles.
I actually start school this week so I wanted to make sure that I could start the school year off as stress-free as possible, starting with my bedroom. I don’t enjoy living in a room that basically looks like a sty, but I also have a very small room that *certain* members of my family seem to think they can dump their stuff in whenever they don’t want to deal with it. So, I had a lot of rubbish and a lot of other people’s stuff clogging up my space, and nobody wants to go into the new year with that. So, I decided to take a few days and clean up my space to hopefully help clear up my mind as well as make being in my own room a less stressful experience.
PS: If you can’t handle mess, maybe don’t read any further?

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m getting a bit more serious and talking about my first impressions of University!
