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

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

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

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 🙂

August Wrap Up 2016!!!

So I didn’t have a very good reading month…especially after reading 10 books last month. To be fair, I was busy about 85% of the time in August but still. Anyway I read a total of 3 books this month and here they are!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – I finally picked this book up after an entire year of purchasing it and honestly, I have no idea why I put this book off for so long! This book was fantastic and I loved every single part of it. It was interesting, entertaining and just amazing. I picked up the second book recently and now I cannot wait to dive into that one! 5/5 stars

Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen – Since summer is coming to a close, I wanted to end with a nice, cute contemporary. Since I really enjoyed Saint Anything, I decided to try another Sarah Dessen book and since this was the only book at the library I picked it up. It was pretty good, not anything amazing but it was an easy read and was entertaining! 3.5/5 stars.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling – As some of you may know, I am reading a Harry Potter book a month before I read the last book and I just finished book 2. It was obviously amazing and while it took me quite a few days to read because I had other things going on, it was still easy and fun to read! 4.5/5 stars.

I only read 3 books but I am very satisfied with all of them! They gave what I hoped for and I was not disappointed. Don’t forget to check out my last post: Things Only Writers Will Understand and I will see you guys soon! 🙂

Reading Update!!!

I have been traveling for about 4 days now and then I am traveling for a few more days this week so sadly I haven’t gotten much reading done this week…but I mean, I read 10 books last month and that’s kind of hard for me to top so I am not too disappointed. I have read a book I have been wanting to read for so long now and I am very, very happy I finally did and that book is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas! I absolutely adored this book. It was so beautifully written with a compelling story line that grasped me from the beginning. It took me 50 or so pages to really get into it just because I find high fantasy a little tough for me to get into, but once I pushed through the first bit I could not stop. It was just so amazing and I cannot wait to pick up the second book soon! Anyways now I am reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling and this book is actually one of my favourites of the series so I am excited to re read it!

I hope all of you are having a good reading month too and good luck!

Top 5 Favourite Re Reads!

I don’t know about you guys but I looove to re read books so here is a list of my top 5 favourite books to re read and if you haven’t read any of these you should definitely check them out!

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – This is a contemporary book that I have been re reading for a couple years now, because this book is just so cute and amazing. Lola and the Boy Next Door is about a girl named Lola being reunited with her old neighbour and first love, Cricket Bell. This story is just so funny and adorable and the characters are very different and relatable which makes this book even better 🙂

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling – This isn’t even my favourite in the series but for some reason I just really enjoy re reading it. Although this one always changes because I can re read all the Harry Potter books at any time, right now this is the one I want to re read. I will be re reading this book later this month though because last month I decided to re read a Harry Potter book a month before I pick up the new book!

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare – I love alllll of Cassandra Clare’s books and I can re read all of them many, many times, but I decided to put down City of Glass because it is definitely one of my favourites! If you didn’t know, this series follows a girl named Clary who one day when her mom is taken discovers that she is a Shadowhunter which means she is half human and half angel. Clary, along with few other Shadowhunters, try and save her mom but the person who took her is someone all Shadowhunters fear. Valentine Morgenstern. I honestly love this series so much, it is my all time favourite series!

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – If you haven’t seen any of my previous blog posts then you wouldn’t know that I have recently been obsessed with this book. Since You’ve Been Gone is about a girl named Emily who’s best friend Sloane goes missing but leaves Emily a list of things to complete that summer while she is gone. Emily scrambles to complete the list over the course of the summer, in hoping that it will bring her to Sloane. This book was just so fun and light hearted and honestly I could re read it for days upon days.

Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout – This isn’t necessary the best book ever but it has a really good plot idea and is really fun. I can re read this book back to back just because it is so easy to read! Obsidian is about Katy, who recently moved after a devastating loss and wounds up living next to twin aliens, Dee and Damon Black. Immediately she is thrust into their crazy world of aliens and has to learn to live with it. This book is very entertaining as is the rest of the series so you should check it out!

Those my top 5 favourite books to re read and I hope you liked it!

 

 

 

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!
