Top 5 Favourite Authors

There are so many amazing authors out there to choose from but I managed to narrow it down to my top 5. These are just authors who if they publish a book no matter what it is about I will pick it up! Comment below your favourite authors because I would love to know! (BTW these are not in a specific order)

Cassandra Clare ~ I love all of Cassie’s books so so so much!!! Her writing is amazing and fun and she creates the best characters ever and I love all of them. Every book she writes is a must read for me.

Rick Riordan ~ The Percy Jackson series was the series that got me into reading and I think because of that I will always love his books and I will always keep picking them up! His writing is really funny and all his characters are so unique! He also keeps coming out with new books based on different mythologies and I looove mythology so it’s a huge bonus.

Rainbow Rowell ~ Rainbow Rowell’s books are just so cute and quirky that every single book I have picked by her, I’ve loved. Fangirl: Absolutely adored it. Eleanor and Park: Loved it. Carry On: Amazing. And yes I know those are not all of her books but those are just my 3 favourites are hers!

Jennifer L Armentrout ~ I have only read the Lux series by her so far but I am planning on reading many more because the Lux series was just so fantastic! I loved how real and somewhat normal it felt, Continue reading “Top 5 Favourite Authors”

March Wrap Up!

Hey! Sorry I haven’t posted in forever but I am back now! So in this blog post I have decided to discuss the books I read in March and I am pretty pleased with how many I read. I read a total of 4 books this month which is pretty good considering I was busy for a good majority of the month and also the fact I am a slow reader…lets just continue on with this blog post!

The first I read in March was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. Lady Midnight is the first book in a new series by Cassandra Clare called the Dark Artifices. Lady Midnight is a continuation of the amazing Shadow world Cassandra has created and it was amazing! This was by far my most anticipated book of 2016 and it did not disappoint me! 5/5 stars

Next book I read and finished in March was Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This is an interesting book because while it is similar to Harry Potter it is its own thing. In Rainbow Rowell’s other book, Fangirl, Cath writes fanfiction that is called ‘Carry On’ and so basically, this entire book is the fanfiction she wrote which I found very entertaining! 4.5/5 stars

Third book I read last month was Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I love Stephanie Perkins ‘sort of trilogy’. It contains Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After. Three different love stories but they all intertwine in the end which I LOVE! I have read all 3 of these books many, many times and I feel like I enjoy them more every time! I flew through Lola and the Boy Next Door and it was just an amazing, easy read to kick off my spring break. 4.5/5 stars

Last book I read last month was Opposition by Jennifer L Armentrout. I was a little bit late on the Lux series because I thought I would not like it but guess what, I ended up loving it! Opposition is the last book (book 5) in the Lux series and I thought it was really good but I was hoping for more. Other than the fact I was still expecting more than what I got, I thought it was a great book and it ended the series nicely. 4/5 stars

That is all for my March Wrap and I will be back soon with another blog post on my April TBR!

Reading Update!

I haven’t been on lately because I have been trying to finish the book I am reading before Friday, and I have. I was reading Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and even though I had about 200 pages left, I still finished it last night…at midnight. It was a really, really good book and I see how people compare it to Harry Potter because in Carry On, the characters are like the Harry Potter characters but if they were more like teenagers. Anyways, I really enjoyed it and I am glad I picked it up! Since I finished it early, I will probably just re read some of Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins and then on the plane start Opposition by Jennifer L Armentrout, and finally, read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children!

Well that’s all for today, bye!

 

Books I Own but Haven’t Read

Here is a list of all the books I own but just haven’t read, not because they are boring but because I keep putting them off for new books I get but I think we all have that problem.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. I am not entirely sure what this is about but I know it is some sort of contemporary book. I will get to this eventually but it is not on the top of my list to read at the moment so I am not sure when that will be.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I am currently reading this book and loving it so it will be off this list pretty soon! Highly recommend it if you love Harry Potter.

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E Pearson. This is the second book in the Kiss of Deception series and while I really enjoyed the first book, this book just started off with a slow start and I wasn’t able to get into it. Hopefully if I pick it up again, read more and be able to get into the book.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. I just recently bought this book and I am planning on reading it sometime in April. I heard it is a bit slower compared to the first book which I enjoyed but I am only hoping that I will like this book just as much.

Four by Veronica Roth. I started this book (or is it a novella?) two years ago and I just found Four’s point of view very boring but maybe if it I try reading it now it will be more appealing, fingers crossed.

Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. This is the only Cassandra Clare book I have not completed but only because I got distracted with her Infernal Devices trilogy and never got around to finishing this book but I will read it!

New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I have only read Twilight it the series and it was okay but I never had any motivation to continue on with the series but I think eventually I will finish it just because it is so popular.

Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead. My cousin recommended this series to me and it is loved by a lot of people so I thought I would give the series a shot! I haven’t gotten around to it yet but I will soon. I don’t read much vampire based books so this should be good!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas. This is a novella to Sarah J Maas’s Throne of Glass series which is amazing. I have heard this novella is really good so I am planning on reading it before  I pick up her newest book, Queen of Shadows.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. When I picked this book up, I just wasn’t in the mood for high fantasy so when I attempted to read it I just wasn’t in the right mood so I never finished it. Again, I hope to get to this soon since the next book in this series is coming out very soon.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I just have heard great things about this book and I saw it for a very cheap price so I thought why not? Sadly, I haven’t been able to pick it up because of all the other books I have to read…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I have heard so much about this series and it makes me extremely excited to read it! This book is very different from what I usually read so it will be a great way to get a look at other ‘types’ of YA books. I am planning on reading this over my Spring Break which is in the next 2 weeks!

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I bought this book on my tablet because it was only $2 but I haven’t tried reading it yet. I don’t know when I am going to read this book but hopefully soon and I really would like to love it!

Passengers by Alexandra Bracken. Okay, so everyone seems to love this book but I am halfway through and I am very bored…I put this book down a month ago after trying to read it but I just can’t get into it but I am determined to finish it!

So those are all the books on my shelf that I have not read and it actually isn’t a whole lot considering I have just over 100 books! Anyway I hope you enjoyed reading this and comment below some books you own but haven’t read yet either!

PS: A Lady Midnight book review will be coming soon!

 

Reading Update

It’s already a week into March and I am still finishing up City of Bones by Cassandra Clare…I was hoping to be finished re reading it by now but looks like it will bring me right up to the release of Lady Midnight which is TOMORROW!!! I am so excited but sadly I am broke from my last trip to the bookstore and I will have to wait a bit before I can get the book which, ugh, just sucks! I will probably focus on finishing Passengers by Alexandra Bracken and start Carry On by Rainbow Rowell…

That is my little reading update and comment below if you are going to be reading Lady Midnight this month!
