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!

Books I Want to Read!

I was thinking earlier about all the books I haven’t had a chance to pick up yet but really would like to read so I decided to share them in a blog post!

Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johanson is a book that I have heard a lot of great things about. Another reason I want to read it is because the movie is coming out sometime soon and Emma Watson, I am pretty sure, is starring in it so it will be amazing!

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhode is a very hyped up book at the moment and I really want to buy it sometime soon! The only thing I am hesitant about is that it is high fantasy and I do love fantasy but sometimes it is hard for me to get into high fantasy…

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas is the fourth book in the Throne of Glass series and I need to know what happens in this book but sadly I am broke…#lifeofareader. In my opinion, I think the first book was the best and I don’t know why I love it so much when everyone else loves Heir of Fire. I guess I’m different…I’m divergent and you can’t control me.

Curse of the Sphinx by Raye Wagner (sorry if that names is spelt wrong…) I have really wanted to read this book after seeing it was advertised on booktube because it is about Greek mythology and I loooove Greek mythology so much.

Opposition by Jennifer L Armentrout is the fifth and final book in the Lux series which I have recently read and loved. I have been searching for the last book but every single time I go to the book store or the library the book seems to be gone! But luckily, I will be getting the eBook on my tablet this week for when I go travelling so this should be off the list soon.

Comment below some book recommendations because I would love to check them out!
