Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hi everyone and welcome to day 10 of A Very Posty December! Today we’ve finished off the last of the GOT7 posts and I figured it was a good time to bring back some festive spirit with a wintry book tag! Enjoy.


#1: What book is so happy and sweet it warms your heart?

Okay… but is there really another answer?


#2: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

This book (obviously) has a predominantly white cover. It was also one of the most heart-shattering and heart-warming books I have ever read and thrives in the paradox. 

Reading this book is not simply absorbing a new world, but embarking on an emotional journey in which you can be tossed around my hurricanes, spat out hundreds of miles away by tornadoes and drowned by tsunamis the size of large skyscrapers. 

If you were to only read five contemporary books in your entire life, this should definitely be one of them. 


#3: You’re sitting in a nice, comfortable chair with a cup of tea. What monster book are you reading?

I don’t even know anything about Sarah J. Maas’ next book, but I know that I really want to read it… and given the length of her recent books it may well be a monster book!

To be fair, I might still be a bit in denial that the Throne of Glass series has ended… I’ve been reading that for a good 4 or 5 years and it’s all over….. 😦

I wonder what she has in store for us next…


#4: It’s snowing outside and you decide to have a snowball fight. What fictional character do you want to have this snowball fight with?

Hagrid is the personification of the gentle giant… in book character form. Having a snowball fight with him would be a blast and he would definitely know where all the best spots were!


#5: Sadly, your campfire is dying. What last few chapters of a book would you throw in the fire to revive it and keep yourself warm?

There are not words to describe how much I hate this book. Forget the last few chapters, the entire thing can be sacrificed for my warmth (or at least given away so I never have to look at it again, because I don’t support book burning).


#6: What book do you love so much that you would buy another copy of it to give someone as a gift to inspire them to start reading?

To be fair, this might not be the best book for someone who is starting to get into reading, as it is written in a very lyrical way, which can slow down the pace of the story a bit. That being said, it’s an absolute masterpiece and I love it, so I decided to include it anyways!


#7: Who do you tag?

Okay, so I’m going to tag Kat, Bianca, Vicky, Fadwa and The Orang-utan Librarian, but if you want to do this tag, feel free to do so and link back to me so that I can read your post! Equally if I’ve tagged you, don’t feel that you have to do the tag!


And that’s it! Did you enjoy? Let me know by leaving a comment… I love hearing from you guys. Happy reading, Keira x. 

GOT7’s Eyes On You | Album Review

GOT7’s EP Eyes On You was released on the 12th of March 2018. It was the group’s first release of 2018 and helped cement their transition to a more mature sound. The song brought with it a collaboration with Hyolyn, a former member of the group SISTAR, and now a solo artist with her own label.

In this post I will be reviewing all 6 tracks.


One and Only You (ft. Hyolyn) is a funky R&B/Soul collaboration with former SISTAR member, Hyolyn. The collaboration works perfectly, with Hyolyn’s high tone and gorgeous vocals giving the song an extra dimension and complimenting the group so well. The song is upbeat, impressive, and has a good rhythm5/5.

Look is a dance track, which also incorporates some of the group’s more low-key singing and rapping from their R&B tracks in the verses. The chorus, however, is full out dance-like-nobody-is-watching synth heaven with some fun percussion twists. Fun, but not my favourite ever. That being said, tempo is played with masterfully and you won’t be bored4/5.

The Reason is an upbeat, summery dance track. I especially like the soft rap verses. The chorus is quite fun, just not as interesting to listen to as the verses. Fun, but not special3.5/5.

Hesitate is what I like to call “chill pop”: somewhere between pop/dance, ballad and soft hip-hop. It’s soothing and relaxing, if not memorable. 3.5/5

Us is a solid R&B based track, with some good raps and pretty vocals, a good beat and a good mix of different tempos, sounds and rhythms. It’s danceable, almost hypnotising and one of my favourite songs on the album! 4.5/5.

Thank You is a pretty standard upbeat ballad dedicated to the group’s fans. Nothing particularly special, but a decent song. 3/5.


Overall this album had a lot of good songs, with one or two great songs, which isn’t bad for a 6-song-short EP. Like many of GOT7’s recent albums, the track list is made up largely of dance and R&B, with the occasionally chill hip-hop or ballad peeking its way into the mix. I also just want to give a shoutout to the group’s incredible music videos lately. Look, for example, at the scene below from Look (funny I know)! Gorgeous!!!!!!!

What do you think of the album? Watch out for my countdown of my favourite GOT7 tracks tomorrow and stay tuned for lots more posts this December! Happy listening, Keira x. 

Add these three songs to your Christmas playlist!

Starting off this posty December with a quick and easy CHRISTMAS POST. I’m just going to link some of my favourite Christmas songs that you might not have heard before!

A sligtly jazzy, classy tune with vicious lyrics… and odd but excellent combination for a Christmas song!
A sweet love song with Christmas instrumentals… watch people confess their love!
A sad, yet happy and very sweet Christmas song (note that this MV is fan-made).

So have you heard of these before? If not have you added any of them to your Christmas playlist this year?

Happy listening, Keira x.

A Very Posty December

Hello everyone! December is FINALLY here and seeing as I have a couple weeks of holiday this month (and am currently doing my best to sort out a work-life balance) I thought I would challenge myself… I am going to post EVERY DAY IN DECEMBER (but I might take Christmas Day off…. or maybe I won’t?)

In any case, I really hope you guys will support me on this journey. The posts won’t all be Christmas-themed (but a few of them will) and towards the end of the month there’ll be a lot of wrap-up type videos where I talk about my fave books and music of the year, but apart from that there will be lots of the regular types of posts: tags, recommendations, reviews and anything else I happen to concoct (my plan is about a quarter finished at the moment). 

The idea is to post everyday at around 8-10 PM GMT (just incase I am running behind and need to finish my post in the morning… because I am sure this will happen to me) so hopefully I will see you there! Also, if you have any post ideas, I’d be more than happy to hear them, so please leave them below! 

Lots of love, 

Keira x.
