Favourite Re Reads!

Re reading books I love is one of my favourite things to do, which can sometimes be bad when I need to read some new books on my shelf…but anyways, here are a few of my favourite books to re read!

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clareLady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – I absolutely loved Lady Midnight the first time I read it, but now I am re reading it and it is just as amazing. Lady Midnight is a massive books but reads quickly in my opinion. I forgot how witty the characters were and how fantastic the whole story is, and I am falling in love with it all over again. I love re reading all of Cassie Clare’s books but at the moment this is definitely a favourite of mine to re read!

obsidian-cover5Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout – This book is such a quick, fun read that I can read multiple times but never get bored of it. Obsidian is part of a five book series, but it is hands down my favourite of them all. I think I like it the most because as the story progresses, the books grow darker and I just enjoy how light and fluffy the first one is.

fangirl_coverdec2012Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I have read Fangirl twice now, and the second time was just as good as the first let me tell you. Fangirl is just one of those cute contemporaries with not only relatable characters, but relatable moments. I recommend anyone who hasn’t read it to read it, because you will fall in love with it!

gofHarry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling – I doubt this is a surprise for any of you because who isn’t going to want to re read a Harry Potter book? I almost put the first book down, but overall I love the fourth one the most. Something about have the triwizard tournament and than the ball just makes me love the story even more.

anna-kissAnna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – Surprise, surprise right? Its not like I have read this book ten thousand times. I just love contemporaries and Anna and the French Kiss is a perfect one, okay? I re read contemporaries the most just because they are so fun, entertaining and super quick reads!

 

Those are five books I like to re read the most and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: 5 Things I Look for in a Book!

 

Top 5 Books I Read in Fall!

I read quite a few books over the months of September through to November, and overall, I was very happy with them! Despite the large amount I read though, I am only going to be sharing my top 5 favourites I read this month, otherwise this would be a very long blog post.

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier – Ruby Red follows a girl named Gwen who is from a family of time travelers, but she herself is believed to not have inherited the gift but her cousin, Charlotte supposedly has. That is, until she finds herself transported back in time and realizes that she is the one who has the abilities, not her cousin. I adored this book, and also the rest of the trilogy equally. The action and snippets of history were very enriching and the whole cast of characters were very entertaining and I just loved reading about them! 4.5/5 stars

Just One Day by Gayle Forman – Just One Day is about a girl who is on a senior trip in Europe and after meeting an intriguing boy, they run off to Paris and live wildly for a day. The next day though, he has mysteriously disappeared and she is led to believe that he just abandoned her. Throughout the novel, we follow her as she tries to cope with the abandonment, all while wondering why he left her. I really enjoyed this book, it was light and fluffy at the beginning and got quite darker towards the end. I did think that sometimes the main character was being slightly dramatic, because what did she expect? That they were going to fall madly in love? But overall it was a very fast paced read that I do really recommend! 4.5/5 stars

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – In this book, we follow Lara Jean, a young girl who for the longest time has wrote a love letter to all the boys she has ever loved before, but when they are all mailed out she jumps into a plan to prevent her current crush from knowing she truly does love him. I don’t want to say anything else because I didn’t know anything about it going in and I personally think it is more fun that way! Honestly though, I loved this contemporary story. Is was humorous and relatable and just so entertaining. I cannot wait for the 3rd book to come out because I need more! 5/5 stars

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson – In this book, we follow 2 twins, June and Noah who when they were younger were very close, but after a tragic event they drifted apart and are practically strangers to each other. In Noah’s POV, we go back to their past when they were about 13, and in June’s POV we follow them in their present, 3 years later. I really, really enjoyed this book because it dealt with issues I don’t see enough in books, and also kept it real and raw. It was definitely a sadder and darker contemporary but nonetheless it was amazing! 5/5 stars

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling – In the 4th book of the Harry Potter series we watch as the Triwizard tournament comes to Hogwarts, and how it affects the lives of Harry, Ron and Hermione. This book is my favourite book in the series because it is very fun to watch the events of the Triwizard tournament, and I also like meeting the new characters! This was a re read but it was just as amazing this time as it was the first! 5/5 stars

These are my top 5 favourite books that I completed in fall and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Books I Want to Finish Over the Holidays!

 

Top 5 Fantasy Books

Fantasy is an amazing genre and I am sure plenty of you agree. I’m about to share with you my all time favourite fantasy books. Some of these books might be urban fantasy, epic fantasy, middle grade fantasy but they are all the same fantasy. Don’t forget to comment below you’re favourite fantasy books!

  1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – This is the first book to Cassandra Clare’s new series and when I read it I thought I couldn’t love the Shadowhunter world more but I was wrong. I fell in love with this book and I just loved how quickly everything moved and the whole cast of characters. I adore this book just as much as The Mortal Instruments series but I can only pick one to my number 1 and I just had to choose this!
  2. City of Glass by Cassandra – Cassandra Clare is my favourite author and the book this series comes from (The Mortal Instruments) is my favourite series. This series may not have the best grammar and structure but the story itself is fun, unique and thrilling which is all I need. The characters are also super 3D and relatable and I don’t know how you could not like this series!
  3. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – A Court of Thorns of Roses is such a fantastic novel that took me so long to actually complete but when I did I was smacking myself in the face. It’s magical, steamy, and just incredible! I recommend all of Sarah J Maas’s books to anyone but A Court of Thorns and Roses is my favourite of hers.
  4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling – I am currently re reading this amazing series and I just completed the 4th one, Goblet of Fire, and I forgot how much I loved it! I just find that watching the Triwizard tournament take place is so fun and exciting. I cannot wait to continue re reading this wonderful series but the 4th one is definitely my favourite of the 7!
  5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas – Surprise surprise, another Sarah J Maas novel. Honestly though, Sarah J Maas just has such a beautiful, rich writing style that I cannot seem to get enough of. Also she writes fantastic characters like Celeana who is such a cool and strong female character that just really shines throughout this novel. I cannot wait to read the last book in this series but I am so sad it is coming to an end!

That is my list of my top 5 favourite fantasy books and I hope you enjoyed 🙂

Reading Update!!!

I am back with another reading update and I am pretty happy with where I am with reading right now.

At the moment, I am reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (again obviously) and I am about half way through. I’ve been kind of slow with reading lately but I still have been reading so that’s always good. I am also reading a book for my English class called The Book of Lost Things and I am actually enjoying a lot more than I thought. It is very dark and twisted which is perfect for this month. It also includes fairy tales which makes everything better. I will most likely finish this novel by the end of the weekend because I only have about 70 pages left. The beginning of this novel was kind of dull but I am at a great part now and even right now, I find myself itching to pick up the book and continue reading.

That was just a quick update on my reading and I hope you have a great rest of your Friday!

October 2016 TBR

I plan on making my October TBR not too big just because are 2 books I have to finish this month so I really just want to focus on them. But obviously, I had to add another one or two books on that list so here it is!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – I MUST finish this book this coming month, I have been putting it off because it is huge (even though I am half way through it) and I just want to complete it. I am a huge fan of Sarah J Maas’s work so I feel terrible about not yet finishing this book…

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling – October will be the 4th month of my “Harry Potter Re-Read-a-Thon” and I am super excited because Goblet of Fire is one of my favourites! I am currently reading the 3rd one and loving it, obviously, so I am very happy to stay in this magical world of wizardry because honestly, who would ever want to leave?

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen – I have been reading some contemporaries lately just because I find they help me get out of my reading slumps and sadly, I have felt one coming on me but luckily I read Just One Day by Gayle Forman and that solved that problem. Anyways, I really enjoy reading Sarah Dessen books so I am giving this one a go!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I bought this book just over 2 months ago and I would really love to get to it this coming month. I have heard great things about this series and now that it has ended I can marathon the series which is always loads of fun. If I can’t get to this book that’s okay but I am going to try my hardest to at least start it!

Those are all the books I am planning on reading in the month of October and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to comment down the books you are planning to read next month and also check out my last post: “Writing Tips #6” 🙂
