Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2018!

There are a fair amount of books I am looking forward to this year, and while I tried to make a list of the top 8 I was most excited for, I could only come up with a top 7…but oh well, I wanted to choose books that I am just dying to get my hands on, and while I am sure I will be adding to this list as the year goes on, these are the 7 most current book releases I am anticipating in the year of 2018!

Meet Cute: Some People are Destined to Meet by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Nicola Yoon, Nina LaCour, Emery Lord, Katherine McGee, Dhonielle Clayton, Katie Cotugno, Jocelyn Davis, and Sona Charaipotra

If you been paying attention to almost any of my other blog posts, you would know I am a sucker for cheesy romances, and this book has that written all over it. Basically this book was made for me, and I know I will love it! If you don’t know what a meet cute is…it is basically what it sounds like! When two people who fall for each other meet each other in a cute way. Most movies have meet cutes, and while they are cliche, everyone loves a good meet cute. This book is a collection of different stories featuring different, diverse characters who…you guessed it! Have a bunch of different meet cutes. I don’t know who came up with this idea, but I am all for it. January 2, 2018

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Restore Me was a surprise to all fans of Tahereh Mafi’s “Shatter Me” trilogy, but it was a very pleasant and exciting surprise. It is hard not to love the “Shatter Me” world and characters, and I am thrilled to be getting another book to this series. The synopsis of this book is pretty vague, but from what it says, I gather that while we thought Juliette and Warner and Kenji and Adam were safe, after winning in the last book and all, there is a new threat on the horizon for them to tackle. I am so, so, so excited to get my hands on this book, and cannot wait till it hits the shelves! March 6, 2018

A Reaper At the Gates by Sabaa Tahir

This is the third book in Sabaa Tahir’s “An Ember in the Ashes” series, which follows a series of different characters and an epic world of corruption and danger. In the first book, An Ember in the Ashes, we follow Laia, a girl whose brother is taken by the Empire and she sets off to save him. We also follow the journey of Elias, a soldier of the Empire who wants nothing more to part himself from it. As we read on, we watch as their paths meet and how they help each other reach the other’s goal. I really enjoyed the past two books in this series, and cannot wait for the third book to release! If you love fantasy, and complex characters and worlds, I definitely recommend you get started on these books. April 10, 2018

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandyha Menon

Recently, I picked up Sandyha Menon’s “When Dimple Met Rishi”, and no, I haven’t read it yet but I just know I will absolutely love it! In this new book, we follow Twinkle Mehra, an aspiring filmmaker who is approached with the opportunity to make a film with fellow film geek, Sahil Roy. Excited to show off her talent she agrees, and Sahil just happens to be the twin brother of Twinkle’s long time crush, and the opportunity to spend time with him is something else she can’t pass up…that is, until she starts falling for Sahil instead. This just seems like an adorable contemporary that I would adore, and I also just love reading books where the protagonist is pursuing a creative life because I can easily relate! May 22, 2018

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson always delivers what I go looking for when I pick up her books, and that is a fun, easy contemporary that steals my heart! Her other books like “Since You’ve Been Gone”, is one of my favourite contemporaries and I cannot wait to see what this new book has in store. I didn’t read much of the synopsis because I want to go into this book not really knowing what to expect, but I do know that it involves our main character, Charlie, and her older siblings who are all reunited after years for her sister’s wedding. I am excited and curious to what will happen, and cannot wait for the cute (and cheesy) romance. June 5, 2018

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J Maas

Image result for Catwoman: soulstealer

When I was younger, Catwoman was a movie I absolutely adored. She was such a strong and determined woman who not only made me want to be part cat, but someone who was as powerful and confident as she was! I am not entirely sure where this story of Catwoman begins or goes, but I have no doubt that it will be action packed and filled with kick-ass characters. August 7, 2018

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

Image result for queen of air and darkness

I haven’t a doubt in my mind that like Cassandra Clare’s other two books in this trilogy, “Lady Midnight” and “Lord of Shadows”, I will absolutely adore this book. Each year her books have become my favourite book of the year, and I cannot wait to dive into this last and final book of the “Dark Artifices” trilogy! The first book follows a big cast of characters, the Blackthorn family and Emma Carstairs, as they try to unravel the mysterious death of Emma’s parents, and in a world of Shadowhunters (half human half angel) and demons, the answer and journey will be anything but ordinary. I cannot express my love for these characters and this world and story enough, other than I am dying for this to be in my hands. December 4, 2018

Those are the 7 books I am anticipating for 2018 and I hope you enjoyed! Make sure you comment some of the books you are looking forward to reading in 2018 because I am always looking for more books to read. Also, if you like reading about the topic of creative living, check out my last blog post where I posted a semi rant on the topic!

 

Creative Living

It has been a while since I have done a rant on my blog, and I thought it was due, especially considering that I have felt really passionate about this topic lately, and that topic is creative living. I apologize if this rant is a little all over the place, but I felt a spike of inspiration and just wrote without planning. Please leave any comments or opinions down below because I would love to hear all of your views on creative living!

Image result for creativity quotes from big magic

Creative living is like falling into a river and letting the water carry you; watching as it leads you towards a sea of unknown. Along the way there are forks in the stream, and once and a while, the water will shift you into a completely new direction. It is a little scary at first, the journey will be filled with uncertainty and hesitation as the roaring water carries you away from your initial destination. You fight it at first, treading against it until your muscles ache, but eventually you give yourself up to the push of the water and it continues to carry you away. After a while though, the water calms down, and instead of fighting against it, you let it carry you to this new place. There are still twinges of hesitation and uncertainty, but they are swallowed by a new feeling; a warm, tingly feeling in your stomach. Curiosity. And that is what you are agreeing to when you travel down the path of creativity.

Creative living is often looked down upon because of its journey, and its usual end result. While the end result of pursuing creativity may not be mounds of money and a big, fancy house, it is usually happiness and fulfillment because creating something that you feel so passionately about will always be worth it in the end…whether the world pays you for it or not. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be nice to be generously rewarded for pursuing creativity if it is what you really wanted, but there is more to life than riches. Besides, being rich doesn’t guarantee happiness. However, creating does.

What amazes me, is that young people are so often steered towards accessing their creativity in school by having various options of art and music and theater classes to choose from. Yet once you leave high school, creativity is just seen as a hobby. However, labeling your creativity as just a hobby is fine, because you may be more interested in other subjects, but for those who see their creativity as more than a hobby, but a way of life, it is frustrating. Once you descend into post secondary school, there are a lot more options to join classes and clubs on creativity, but if you say you are going to be majoring in art or theater or writing, you will ultimately be faced with the question: well what do you plan to do with that? What stable job could you even get with a degree in art? Well there are a lot actually. They just might not pay as much as a doctor, or a lawyer. When I say I want to pursue writing, that doesn’t automatically mean all I want to do is write a novel. Besides, I know the risks and outcomes that come with wanting that, and only wanting that. Even though I may look it, I am more than a small child with stars in my eyes and a dream that is slightly out of reach. Since I know what a life of creativity means, it means I am open to the possibilities of non-fiction, creative non-fiction and technical writing…really the list goes on and on. The point is, I know it won’t be the easiest career but that’s okay. Its my dream.

Image result for creativity quotes from big magic

We have to remember that every job is hard, and requires you to work for it. Creativity just happens to be a bit more of a bumpy journey; especially if you go into it with the mindset that you are going to become a world famous artist or an author whose first book is going to sell millions of copies and be turned into a movie…that most likely won’t happen, at least not right away. But if you keep practicing and exercising your creativity, I see no reason why you can’t pursue it as a lifestyle and at least be semi successful, whether that means you make some money off of your art or you just have a blast doing it. Creativity only asks three things of you in return, and those are to never give up, to ignore the negativity of what others say, and to be flexible to whatever pathway of unpredictable and wondrous adventures it leads you down.

That is all for today and I really hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update 🙂

Reading/Writing Update!

harry-potter-philosophers-stone-book

Merry Christmas Eve! This is the second last reading/writing update before the new year which is crazy. I cannot believe we are only a week away from 2018, I am hands down ready for 2017 to be over though, so I cannot wait. Anyways, this week hasn’t been an amazing reading week. I prefer to read right before bed but this last week I have been falling asleep as soon as I touch my bed…meaning I haven’t gotten a lot of reading done. Yesterday was my first day off school so I spent it lounging around and being lazy, but hopefully I have gotten that out of system and am going to make these next two weeks productive reading and writing wise…fingers crossed I can fight the laziness and procrastination. However, I did finish Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert this week, and I absolutely adored it! I will talk about my feelings om it more in my December 2017 Wrap Up which will be coming in a week or so, but for now, all you need to know is that it is definitely worth the read! I have also been re reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling, and am about 170 pages in. I am hoping I can finish it pretty soon because there are so many other books I want to get to but I also don’t want to rush it!

Lately I have been planning a creative non-fiction piece I am working on for a local writing contest. The deadline isn’t until March so I got plenty of time, but lately I have been leaving things to the last minute and while I do think so of my best work is produced that way, I don’t want to get in that habit. So I have slowly been mapping out my ideas and what the goal of my piece is, and I am really enjoying it! I am really glad I have decided to write more than just fiction, because while fiction will always be my favourite to write, I do really enjoy writing essays and creative non-fiction pieces!

That is all for my reading/writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: January 2017 TBR!

January 2018 TBR!

This is my first TBR of the new year and I am so excited! 2017 was kind of a reading bust because I only read 40-or-so books, but I am determined to read a lot more this coming year. Because of that…my TBR is kind of ambitious but I know I can do it!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets + Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling 

Currently I am re reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and am obviously loving it, as it is getting me in the holiday spirit. Obviously I cannot just start one and not continue on with the whole series, so I plan on giving the entire series a re read! I doubt I need to explain the synopsis of the Harry Potter series, especially since these are the second and third books in the series but yeah, I am really excited to be giving these my annual yearly re read!

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Image result for eliza and her monsters

Eliza and Her Monsters was a book I read back in July for the BookTubeAThon, and I read it in just a few hours because it was so amazing. It talks about the hardships of being a creative person, as well as being someone who doesn’t fit in well at school and suffers from mental illness. These are really important representations in books because I know for myself, it is very relatable. Eliza and Her Monsters follows Eliza, who is the anonymous creator of the online phenomenon webcomic, Monstrous Sea. It follows Eliza as she meets Wallace, who happens to be Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfic writer, and she struggles with keeping her true identity a secret as they grow closer together, brought together by their love for this webcomic that she created.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

wewereliars

This is a really short book that I heard is amazing, so I have no doubt that once I actually force myself to pick it up, I won’t want to put it down. We Were Liars follows a “perfect” family that spends every summer on private island, however this summer is not the same. Cadence, a fifteen year old girl, has something happen to her during her fifteenth summer, and with the help of others she tries to remember the accident. I really had to pull this synopsis from online, but even then it is still really mysterious…and intriguing so I am excited to (hopefully) pick it up next month!

This Savage Song by V.E Schwab

Image result for this savage song

I really look up to Victoria as a writer. She has fantastic tips and ideas about creativity, and overall she seems like a very genuine person! Not too long ago I purchased This Savage Song, because it got, and still is getting, wonderful reviews so I really would like to get to it in the New Year. This Savage Song follows August and Kate, two who are on opposite sides of their divided city which are at war. All August wants is to be human, and he could if he steals a soul with music. When Kate gets kicked out of yet another boarding school, a chance arises and he jumps at it, only to be faced with a change of direction and suddenly him and Kate are on the run.

Those are the five books I hope to get to in the month of January, and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog pots: January 2018 Talk 🙂

January 2018 Talk!

This is my first talk for the new year and I am so excited to jump into 2018 in just only 14 days! If you didn’t know, in these “talks” I discuss all the new book releases and movies that are coming out in the following month that I am personally eager about. Hopefully some of these you are excited for as well, but if they aren’t, definitely comment on some books and movies you are looking forward to on the month of January!

Books

Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

Image result for zenith book

This is a book written by two YouTubers I watch, and I am so proud and excited to pick up their book! Sasha Alsberg is the BookTube channel @abookutopia, and was the first BookTube channel I ever subscribed to. She is amazing, as well as @LindsayCummings, a wonderful AuthorTuber that I have also been subscribed to for sometime now. Their book Zenith, is set in the Mirabel Galaxy, and takes place when an all girl’s crew, called the Marauders, routine mission goes wrong. I am really excited to read this because it has been ages since I read a sci-fi book and I have a feeling I will absolutely adore this novel! This book is released on January 16th.

Keeper by Kim Chance

Image result for keeper by kim chance

Keeper is a book by an AuthorTuber, @KimChance who I watch, and I am really excited to see how far she has come and pick up her book in January. It has a really interesting plot and I am dying to get my hands on it! Keeper follows sixteen year old Lainey, who after being attacked by a witch, she discovers that the attack wasn’t random, and that she is a type of a witch called a Keeper. This kind of witch can unlock the power of a magical spell book that is missing, the Grimoire, and Lainey has to find it before an evil warlock gets to it first. I haven’t read many witch books but I am thrilled that this will be one of them! This book is released on January 30th.

Movies

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Image result for the maze runner the death cure

This is a movie that has been long awaited after being postponed due to Dylan O’Brien being injured onset…luckily his injuries were minor so he is well and the film is finally being released into the world! I have to say, I did enjoy the first movie enough, and the second one was okay, but I am not entirely sure how much I will love this movie. Since this is the third installment, I won’t say too much other than the first movie/book follows our main character, Thomas, who wakes up in a strange maze filled with dozens of boys who all don’t have any recollection of their pasts. As time passes, the boys begin to realize there was a reason that they were placed in this maze, and that it isn’t a simple one. This movie is released on January 26th.

Those are all of the books and movies that I am looking forward to in the month of January, and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update 🙂

Reading/Writing Update!

Happy Sunday! It has been a quiet and calm yet also busy weekend because I have been finishing up homework and studying for my last few tests coming next week. I haven’t done a ton of reading but I have done some over this past week so I thought I would share what I have accomplished so far because at least it is something!

Image result for big magic

Currently I am reading two books. Two books that I absolutely adore and am loving reading so much I don’t ever want them to end. The first one is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert which is a non-fiction book on creativity. I am on page 154 of 273 and have found it so incredibly inspiring and informative, that I have enjoyed taking my time this past week reading it. I don’t usually sit down and just read non-fiction books (I usually just scan them and take note of anything I find useful), but with this one I haven’t taken a single note. I’ve just been sitting and down and reading it which is really nice. The other book I am reading is a re read, and that is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! I am not very far in it at all, but I am a good 70 pages into it and I cannot wait to keep diving in. I’ve been distracted with reading Big Magic in the spare time I do spend reading, but once I finish it I will be giving Harry Potter by full attention and will hopefully finish it before winter break starts this coming Friday!

harry-potter-philosophers-stone-book

Lately I have been searching up more essay contests ever since the last one I entered a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed writing that essay and would like to continue practicing and submitting more essays. Other than googling about writing, I have not written much lately…really I just want to get through this last week of school and then once I am on break I want to spend some time outlining because I have a story that I want to explore! It is an interesting idea to me, and I am hoping that it will take me by the reins and guide me to writing it, but you never know with ideas!

That is all for my reading/writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Liebster Awards! 🙂

The Liebster Award!

Thanks to Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads for nominating/tagging me in a few different things. I really liked her questions for The Liebster Award so I thought I would take them on and answer them for you guys! I hope you enjoy 🙂

Image result for liebster award blog

Her Questions:

  1. What is your favorite book of all time?

That is hard because there are a lot of amazing books out there…however, I do have two that knock every book I have ever read out of the field. So I am kind of cheating but I can’t choose one over the other! Those books are Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han, and Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare!

2. What is your most anticipated sequel of 2018?

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare! The third and final installment of her Dark Artifices series which is insane because it feels as if the first book just came out. Sadly, it is expected in December of 2018 so I will be waiting for a while.

3. If you had to only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh that is so hard because I love both contemporary and fantasy for different reasons…I think I will go with fantasy though because there are so many amazing fantasy books to choose from. Also, fantasy books always have contemporary elements in them, and could also be historical fantasy, sci-fi/fantasy…

4. What is your favorite bookish reading place?

I do most of my reading at night in my bed, but my favourite place is on one of the couches in my living room. I can read for hours on it and not even realize any time has passed.

5. Would you subscribe to a book book? If so, which one(s)?

Does this question mean book subscription box? Because if so then probably CrateJoy because I have only heard amazing things!

6. Who are some of your favorite authors?

Cassandra Clare, Jenny Han, Tahereh Mafi, Rick Riordan…

7. What is one of the most profound books you’ve read?

One that comes to mind is An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I read it for the first time two years ago, and was blown away by the complex world and amazing characters. The writing was beautiful and I was just amazed by it!

8. Do you dog-ear, use magnetic bookmarks, non-magnetic bookmarks, or something else to keep your place?

Paper bookmarks all the way! I have like 100 of them and they are everywhere.

9. Which angsty books do you just love?

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It shows how hard it can be to fit in in high school but is also a great story about friendship! Lots of relatable teenage angst.

10. Have you ever straight-out-sobbed from a book before? Which one?

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes comes to mind because it was so sad! I don’t usually cry during books but I definitely did shed a few tears while reading this great book.

11. What do you use to keep track of the books you read?

I update my Goodreads account every few months, but every time I finish a book I write it down in this notebook I have, give it a rate and write the date I finished it. It’s just easier than logging into my computer, searching for Goodreads and then trying to remember how I add a book to my read list.

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. E-Books or Physical books?
  2. What is your favourite book-to-movie or book-to-TV Show adaptation?
  3. What book character do you relate to the most?
  4. How many books do you generally read in a week?
  5. What was a book you loved when you were younger?
  6. If you could switch places with one book character, who would it be?
  7. What is your favourite supernatural/mystical creature?
  8. What is your favourite cliche?
  9. If you could only choose 3 books to read for the rest of your life, which books would you choose?
  10. What is one book you keep putting off reading?
  11. Do you eat or drink anything when you read? If so, what?

Winter is a magical season and is filled with endless amount of possibility…especially when it comes to writing! I personally love writing a snowy setting because it makes the story feel cozy and fluffy, so in anticipation for winter, here are a few writing prompts to not only get you excited about winter, but writing!

  • Write about the sound of winter
  • A thin layer of frost covers the lands at the beginning of June…it is the first snowfall in a thousand years
  • Write about Santa Claus…but he steals instead of giving presents
  • You are lost in the middle of nowhere and it is the middle of winter…suddenly a train is in the distance
  • While ice skating the ice cracks and you fall in…instead of hitting water you end up in a different dimension
  • Write about the history of a special Christmas ornament
  • Write about the first snowfall of the year…describe how it feels, smells, taste, looks…
  • Write about a hunt for the perfect Christmas tree
  • Your plane gets cancelled due to a blizzard warning…while waiting at the airport you meet a mysterious stranger

Reading Update!

Image result for i see london i see france

Yesterday I finished reading I See London I See France by Sarah Mlynowski, and it was the perfect book for me to read right now. I am feeling the stress of school for sure, and this was the perfect light hearted, adventurous contemporary to pick up. It follows two best friends, Sydney and Leela who decide to travel around Europe for four and a half weeks, but when Leela’s ex boyfriend, Matt and his friend Jackson end up on the same flight, plans change. This book made me really want to travel and made me grin from ear to ear from its cheesy cuteness! However, since I finished it, I am having trouble deciding what to read next…I want to read Hush, Hush, but I also want to re read Lady Midnight and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone…I am leaning towards Harry Potter because I feel like it is made an obligation to pick them up during the winter time, but I just don’t know! Anyways, by the time this blog post goes up (it is currently Saturday night), I will probably have chosen my next read and at this moment I feel like it may be Harry Potter…

That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Classic Movie Recommendations!

Classic Movie Recommendations!

This year I am taking a film studies class where we watch films from all time periods and genres and because of it, I have absolutely fallen in love with old films. Since I have been exposed to more diverse movies, I really wanted to make a post appreciating and recommending some films that if you haven’t watched, you really should! If you are skeptical about older films because you think they might not be for you, check one of these out and it may change your mind 🙂

Rear Window 

Image result for rear window

This is definitely one of my favourite movies ever, and was one that I watched pretty early on in my class. It is film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and follows a professional photographer who breaks his leg and is wheelchair bound because of it, forced to spend days locked in his apartment. While watching out his window one day, he witnesses what he believes is a murder committed by the man across from him, and gets his girlfriend, Lisa to help investigate this possibly dangerous man. While this movie takes place in one location, it is a masterpiece of cinema that completely gripped me from beginning to end! A number one recommendation for sure.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Image result for breakfast at tiffany's

Audrey Hepburn has been a favourite actress of mine for a while, and this is one of my favourite films of hers! While she is amazing in all of the films she stars in, Breakfast at Tiffany’s has a charming feel to it that you can’t help but adore. This film follows a young woman in New York who is in search of an older and rich man to marry to help her brother who is in the army. However, there is a spark between her and a young  struggling writer who moves into the apartment above her, and they form a strange friendship. Such a feel good movie that will leave you with a funny smile on your face!

Sunset Boulevard

Image result for Sunset Boulevard

At first, I was hesitant about saying I liked this movie, but now I can say that despite all of its strangeness, I really did enjoy this movie! Sunset Boulevard follows a striving screenwriter who is taken into the home of a forgotten silent film actress to work on a script of her life story. Along the way she falls madly in love with him, but he can’t reciprocate those feelings as he has them for somebody else. I enjoyed the concept of this story and would recommend it because its ending…that was an iconic cinematic ending!

Roman Holiday  

Image result for roman holiday

A classic that I am sure you have all heard of, but may have not seen…if that is the case then go watch it. Now! This may have been the first classic film I saw…if not at least the first I remember watching. I wasn’t completely taken with it at first, and had to watch it over the course of three days, but a few months later I rewatched it and loved it! It is another Audrey Hepburn movie, who co-stars with Gregory Peck to deliver a beautiful romance movie! Roman Holiday follows princess Ann who takes off for a night in Rome, wanting to shed her suffocating responsibilities as a princess. Along the way she meets a news reporter who finds her on a park bench, asleep from a sedative given to her by her doctor. He takes her back to his apartment to keep her safe, and soon realizes who she is. He sees this as an opportunity to make some money, but he soon develops feelings for her as they adventure around Rome together. A favourite of mine, and it will definitely captivate you!

The General 

Image result for the general movie

This is a silent film with one of my favourite actors, Buster Keaton. At first I wasn’t taken by silent films, but Buster Keaton is so entertaining and hilarious you barely notice there are no words! The General follows a train engineer who wants his girlfriend’s hand in marriage, but one day she is kidnapped when the train she is in is stolen by Northern forces. Buster then goes off after the train in a desperate attempt to save her, and it makes for an interesting story. This was such a fantastic movie, and I am pretty sure you can watch it on YouTube for free because it is from the 20’s, so you have no excuse not to watch it!

Those are a few recommendations and I hope you enjoyed and feel inspire to watch some of these. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: November 2017 Wrap Up!
