December 2016 TBR!

December is almost here and I am honestly so excited because December means winter, Christmas and Christmas Break which means more time to read! I cannot wait to get to all these amazing books so here they are…

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – I began this book in September but ended up putting it down for some reason. Now, I really would like to complete it before 2017 and since winter break is the perfect time to read this specific book…I am going to finish it. The first book in this trilogy, A Court of Thorns and Roses, follows a girl named Feyre who as punishment for killing a faerie disguised as a wolf, is forced to live among the faeries and give up her life in the mortal realm. These books are very action packed and steamy and are perfection exploding on pages!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling – I am almost done Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and almost right away will be shifting into the 6th book! I am really excited to jump into this book because it is definitely one of my favourites in the series because it holds some of my all time favourites scenes. I am sad though, that I am almost done re reading the Harry Potter series but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – I love Vampire Academy and I am really pumped to start the Bloodlines series because I heard it is almost as good. All I know is that we follow Sydney and Adrian which is awesome, but also a very unusual pairing in my opinion…anyways, this is another book I would like to complete before 2017 so fingers crossed it actually happens!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I have always wanted to pick up this series but never had the urge to until I had a gift card to the bookstore and saw this book right in front of me. Now, I am so excited to jump into this series and its fandom and hopefully, I will get to do that this month. If not that’s okay because there is always 2017 to complete it but I am hoping to be able to finish this before the new year.

Those are all the books I have planned to read in December, and despite the fact that the first 3/4 of December will be hectic, I am hoping to get a lot of reading done the week before I return to school. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Movie Review (Non Spoiler)!

 

 

 

 

Books I Want to Read Before 2017

This year has gone by so fast and now 2017 is right around the corner. Since we are just over a month and a half away from 2017, I realized there are a few books that I would like to complete before we start the new year so here they are!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – This book is amazing, but it is also amazingly long. I put this book down a few months ago but I am determined to pick it up and finish the last half. These books are so fantastic so far and I do not want to hold myself back from Sarah J Maas’s beautiful writing any longer!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – I loved Vampire Academy and so when I heard there was a spin off series featuring Adrian and Sydney I was all for it. The only problem is, is that I haven’t read it yet! So, since I haven’t completed the first book yet, it is on my list to finish before 2017 because I want to jump on the bandwagon with this series!

Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I have had this book for a  few months on my shelf already and I would really like to just read it already! I have heard great things about this novel and I’m pretty sure that it is becoming a movie so that is just more of a reason to finally read it.

Even though there are only 3 books I would like to complete before the end of the year, they are pretty hefty books. I am also trying to finish reading the Order of the Phoenix and then next month The Half Blood Prince, so it will be a challenge but I am determined to finally complete these books!

 

August Book Haul 2016

I actually wasn’t planning on doing an “August Book Haul” but then it was my birthday…and then I went shopping so I think you can see how that went.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – I bought this book at the very beginning of the month and I am so excited to read it! If you didn’t know, the Bloodlines series is a spinoff of the amazing Vampire Academy series and it follows Adrian and Sydney. I am extremely pumped to read this because I love Adrian and Sydney and I love Vampire Academy so there is no reason why I won’t love this series as well.

Empire of Dust by Eleanor Herman – This is the second book in the Blood of Gods and Royals series which is amazing by the way! The first book, Legacy of Kings, follows a series of different characters in the time of Alexander the Great in Greece. This series has lots of action, betrayal, plot twists and is just a fantastic piece of work. If you love Greek mythology, history or just an action packed story then definitely check this series out!

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon – This is a contemporary book about a girl who is allergic to the world and one day, a boy named Ollie moves next door and she finds herself hopelessly falling for him. I finished this book in one sitting and I really liked it! It was cute, enjoyable, and just all around what a good contemporary should be.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – I read this book in July and absolutely loved it and now I finally have my own copy so I can read it whenever I want. Since You’ve Been Gone is about Emily who’s best friend Sloane disappears one day, leaving only a checklist for Emily to complete during the summer. Emily goes on an adventure with a few other new friends to complete this list, hoping it will lead her to Sloane. This book is just fun, cute and amazing and I recommend it to everyone!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – I read the first book, A Court of Thorns and Roses last month and oh my god. I absolutely adored every single part of this book! The characters, the plot, the world, just everything was phenomenal. A Court of Thorns and Roses is a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast and it follows a girl named Feyre who is forced to live in the Faerie world, Prythian, as punishment after killing a faerie while hunting. Honestly, if this book is just as good as the first it will have a guaranteed spot in my top 5 favourite series ever.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I have wanted to read the Raven Cycle series for a while now but I just have never picked up the first book but now I have! The covers are gorgeous and hopefully the story is just as amazing. Honestly, I don’t really have any idea what it is about but I’m excited going into it like that!

Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I’ve been eyeing this book for a while now but my TBR has been so full that I just haven’t picked this book up yet. But, it was on sale for $5 at my bookstore so I just had to get it. Again, not really sure what this book is about but I have a feeling it is about a young woman trying to regain her throne. Anyways, I heard it’s being made into a movie with Emma Watson in it so I just have to read it!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany – Okay so I actually wasn’t planning on buying this book anytime soon for two reasons. 1) It’s way to expensive at the moment 2) I have mixed feelings about it. But I got it for my birthday so I finally get to read it and state my own opinion about it without spending the whole $40…I think I will like it I am just not a huge fan of reading plays but of course I am going to give it a shot.

Those are all the books I purchased this month and 8 books is a massive amount for me to buy in one month. I hope you liked this post and don’t forget to check out my last one!

September TBR 2016!!!

I know there is still about a week left of August but I am so excited to get to my September TBR! I got quite a few books that I am pumped to read so here it is 🙂

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – This is the spin off series of Vampire Academy, which I absolutely loved, and I am so excited to finally get to it! I have heard nothing but great things so I know I will love it. From what I gathered, it follows Sydney and Adrian instead of Rose and Lissa so that will be an interesting change!

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard – This book has been sitting on my shelf since February and it is about time I get to it. The first book, Red Queen, was very fun and fast paced and I really enjoyed it! If Glass Sword is anything like it I will definitely be anticipating the third book right after.

Empire of Dust by Eleanor Herman – This is the second book next to Legacy of Kings which is a YA Historical fiction book. I love Ancient Greece and it takes place in Ancient Greece so I obviously loved this book. It was just so action packed and amazing and I cannot wait to finally dive into the second book!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas – I have wanted to read the Throne of Glass novella for a while now but I just haven’t picked it up. I know I will love it though, just because it is by Sarah J Maas but also because it is a novella to such an epic series. Seriously, if you haven’t read the Throne of Glass series you need to pick it up. Now.

Those are all the books I want to get to in September and hopefully I actually do because my school starts in the beginning of September so we will see how busy I am! I always make time to read though.

August TBR 2016!!!

August is finally here and I am so excited because I have a lot of hopefully amazing books to read this month! Last month I read a ton of books and I know I won’t be able to read as much but I am still hoping to read a lot. Anyways, here are the books I have planned for this month!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – This is my current read and I am really enjoying it so far! High fantasy is a little hard for me to read but Sarah J Maas’s books always pull through. I am really terrible at explaining this book but I will give it a try…A Court of Thorns and Roses is about this girl named Feyre who kills a faerie by accident and is given a choice to either live in the faerie world forever or be killed. She ends up taking the offer of living in the faerie world but it is harder than it seems.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I am finally picking up a Jane Austen book and I have a feeling I am going to like it. Again, I am terrible at explaining what this book is about but most of you probably know or have an idea so I’ll just leave it at that…anyway’s I am really excited to be reading one of her books finally and I really hope I like it!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling – As I mentioned in my July Wrap Up I will be reading a Harry Potter book a month! I am on to the second book and I am very excited because I really love the second one. Anyways, it is always fun jumping into the Harry Potter world and I am excited to continuing staying in it!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – The only thing I know about this book is that it follows Adrian and Sydney from Vampire Academy and that is good enough for me. I finished the Vampire Academy series last month and I absolutely loved it so I am really excited to read the spin off series! I know I am going to love it.

Those are all the books I plan to read in August but hopefully I’ll pick up a few more!
