Reading Update!

I am still slowly getting back into reading after not for like…an entire ten days so this week I did not get as much reading done as I would have liked. I did start reading Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout and am 150 pages into that. My goal is to try and finish this book before the end of the month so fingers crossed I can accomplish that small goal. If I do somehow manage to finish it, I plan on diving into Poison Study by Maria V Snyder which I am really excited for! I have a feeling I will love it and really hope I do.

Lately there have been absolutely no writing updates because I have not been writing…obviously. But I really want to change that and start writing next week! I am not too busy during the coming weeks so I have no excuse not to. I really want to enter some writing contests and get back into the swing of things because it feels so weird not to write!

That is all for my reading and small writing update, and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Auto Buy Authors!

May 2017 Haul!

I bought quite a few books this month because there were so many fantastic releases that I just couldn’t help myself! Here are all the books that I hauled this month:

30312860

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – This was a book I was highly anticipating for the year of 2017, and I was so excited to finally get it in my hands on May 2nd. Always and Forever, Lara Jean is the third and final book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, and it follows teenage Lara Jean who writes letters to all the boys she has loved before, as a way to say goodbye to them. But when those letters mysteriously get sent out, she finds herself digging a hole in order to avoid the embarrassment. I love this trilogy and I highly recommend it if you love cute, quirky and fluffy contemporaries!

30145666

The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan – I enjoyed the first book in this series, The Hidden Oracle, so I was definitely looking forward to reading the sequel. The first book follows the god Apollo, as he is sent down to earth as mortal and goes off to complete a quest in order to get back his immortality. This is a very humorous and fast paced story that will keep you entertained like all of Rick Riordan’s books!

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow – This is the book that inspired Lin-Manuel Miranda to write the amazing musical, Hamilton, and being a huge fan I was ecstatic to find this book. This book tells Alexander Hamilton’s life story and follows his journey to becoming an important figure in American history. Even though I am not American, and do not learn about American history in school, I am really fascinated by the story of Alexander Hamilton!

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder – I have heard fantastic things about this book, so I am incredibly excited to jump into it. Poison Study is about a girl who has to choose between being executed or becoming the king’s poison tester, and while that is all I really know, that is enough to capture my attention! Lots of people have recommended this book to me, and I have a feeling I am going to love it.

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – Of course I was going to buy my most anticipated release of 2017, and it is also my current read. Lord of Shadows is the sequel to Lady Midnight, which follows a group of Shadowhunter’s who try to uncover the mysterious murder of Emma Carstair’s parents. This is a story that leaves you wanting more, has a fantastic cast of diverse characters, and is magical!

Those are all the books I bought this month and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog posts: June 2017 TBR!

 

April 2017 Book Haul!

I managed to buy a few books this month and I am really, really excited about them all so here they are!

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

the-unexpected-everything-9781481404549_hr

I absolutely adored Morgan Matson’s, Since You’ve Been Gone, and I have heard great things about her new one as well. The Unexpected Everything is about this girl named Andie who had her summer all planned out, that is, until her politician father gets caught up in a big scandal and everything is flipped upside down. I have been in a huge contemporary mood lately so hopefully this book will satisfy it!

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

All-the-light-we-cannot-see

This is a historical fiction book that I have heard fantastic things about, and since I have been wanting to read more historical fiction, I am very excited to finally read it! All the Light We Cannot See is about a blind French girl whose paths collide in France during World War II. Cannot wait to read this amazing story!

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout

white-hot-kiss

I am in the mood for a trashy YA and I love Jennifer L Armentrout’s books so…I bought another! White Hot Kiss is about Layla, a seventeen year old girl who just wants to be normal, but that is kind of difficult when her kiss kills anything with a soul. I like that Jennifer L Armentrout’s books give me a contemporary feel, but also have a mystical aspects to it which makes me ever more excited!

Sea Glass by Maria V Snyder

SeaGlass

I have always wanted to read a Maria V Snyder book, and saw this and decided to pick it up. I did realize that it is the second book in the series…but oh well. I am not a hundred percent sure what it is about, but I wanted to go into it without any real idea.

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

hush-hush

This book is everywhere and everyone has read it so I decided I should give it a shot. From what I have gathered, Hush Hush is about a girl named Nora who has never planned on falling in love, that is until Patch. I also have heard that it has to do with fallen angels, so I am really excited to see how that plays into it.

Those are all the books I purchased this month and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Never Will I Ever Book Tag!
