During the months of August and September, I read a grand total of 1 1/2 books…yeah not too impressive. On Thursday though, I finally finished Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier! I think I have been finally pulled out of my reading rut and am finally ready to keep on reading. Currently I am now reading Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli, and am about a hundred pages into it already. It is such a fast paced, light hearted and enjoyable read that I have no doubt I will be able to finish it this weekend. Today I am doing a lot of traveling as well as tomorrow, so I plan on getting quite a bit of reading done. Hopefully I will finish Simon today and get started on my next read, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, because it is the perfect book for the fall time and I am excited to continue on with this series!
That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Series I Haven’t Finished…
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!
Yep, no writing update for this week but I do have some reading to update you all on! Reading had been sadly on the back burner the last week, but now I am back and reading and it feels so, so good. I am straying from my TBR a bit and decided to pick up and re read P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han, the second book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. I am in a contemporary kick, as I always am, and just needed a light hearted read to end off this stressful week. I finished it yesterday and loved it as I always do. Re reading these books makes me super excited for the movie because if you didn’t know, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is being adapted into a movie!!! Lana Condor is playing Lara Jean and Noah Centineo from The Fosters is playing Peter K, and while I wasn’t 100% sure about these actors before, after seeing them act in other movies I am sold! I have been following the movie news on their social media and I just know that this is going to be a fantastic movie that I will absolutely adore, much like the book series. Next I plan on finishing City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare which I picked up for a re read but never got around to finishing…hopefully I can do that by the end of this coming week.
That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed!
Sorry I have not posted for the last few days. I felt very creatively blocked and could not, for the life of me, come up with a decent blog post! Anyways, hopefully things will be back on track for this week and the weeks to come, and I hope you enjoy this quick reading update.
I was slowly making my way through The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, and I finally finished it on Friday night. I had somewhat high expectations for this book, considering how much I loved Since You’ve Been Gone, and while I did really enjoy the book and thought it was a lot of fun, Since You’ve Been Gone is still my favourite Morgan Matson book. I really loved the summery vibe this book gave me, but I did find that my alarming differences from the main character, Andie, made it hard for me to connect to the story as much as I hoped I would. I am glad I read this though, and will give more detail on my thoughts on it in my May 2017 Wrap Up! Since I have finished this book, my plan is to continue reading The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan, which I have started a bit, and then fit in another book before Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare comes out. Once this book comes out, I know my life is going to be, once again, consumed by this (most likely) fantastic book!
That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed!
February has been a sort of slow reading month, but I am hoping to fit a few more books in before the month is over! Anyways, I recently finished re reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han because I have been in a major contemporary kick since the beginning of the year. This has to be one of my favourite contemporary series ever because it is so relatable, quirky and hilarious and I always finish it with a massive smile on my face! To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is about a girl named Lara Jean who writes letters to all the boys she has loved before, but when they are mysteriously all sent out she finds herself digging a deep hole of lies to prevent the boy she currently likes from knowing she actually loves him. If you want a fluffy contemporary definitely give this one a go! Since there are 3 days of February left, I want a good book that I can read in that period of time and end the month off well. Sooo I decided that since I have made February a month of re reads and contemporaries, I choose to read Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen! Although, since February has only been a month of contemporaries I am going to try and branch out more in March…also because how many more contemporaries are there even left for me to read? I also want to write more in March because I haven’t written anything in FOREVER which is driving me insane! School and life has just been kind of chaotic and distracting lately but I want to push through all that and work on the stories I have in mind.
That’s all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed!
Sorry for the late posts lately, I have been a little distracted with school and all that but I am going to try and be better this coming week! Anyways, I didn’t do any writing but I did do some reading so here is an update on that.
This week I finished of Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. I have been going through a re reading phase these past few months and it is great honestly. I last read Since You’ve Been Gone in July for a readathon and absolutely adored it so it was amazing to re read this fun, fast paced book! Since I finished a few days ago, I decided to also give Ruby Red a re read because I also read these books earlier this year and fell in love with the time traveling aspect and characters! Ruby Red is about a girl named Gwen who’s family carries down a time traveling gene every few generations, and despite her family thinking it skipped Gwen, she one day finds herself thrust back into the past. This trilogy is really interesting and entertaining, and I am so excited to re read it.
That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed!
October is coming to an end so I thought I would update all of you on where my reading is at the moment. August and September were much slower reading months for me but now I am finally getting back into the swing of things and I couldn’t be happier! While November and the following months are going to be much more hectic, I am hoping to keep up this reading pace.
At the moment, I am about a hundred pages off of finish P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han which is fantastic by the way. The first book, To All the Boys I Loved Before follows Laura Jean, a girl who writes love letters to every boy she has ever loved, but when they all get sent out she couldn’t be more mortified. I love contemporaries and this duology is just so fun and fast paced that I find myself finishing them in one day. I am planning on finishing this book later today and then finally reading The Last Star by Rick Yancy. I am so excited to read the finale to The 5th Wave trilogy just because it is such a great series. I have absolutely no idea how everything is going to work itself out but I hope it has the good, strong ending that it deserves! This book is also quite a short read so I am planning on finishing it in the next couple of days.
That’s all for my reading update and don’t forget to comment what you are currently reading and your thoughts on it! Thanks 🙂
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!
I am so happy to finally be back to a normal reading pace rather than reading barley ANYTHING! NaNoWriMo is also quickly approaching so I want to get as much reading done as possible in case I fall behind that month with all the writing. Sometimes 2000 words is a really hard goal to reach in 1 day…anyways, yesterday I finally completed re reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and it put me in such a Harry Potter mood which is good, because next week I am planning on re reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling. Until then, I will be reading Just One Year by Gayle Forman and I am really excited to do that because Just One Day was such a fun and easy read and I want to see what went on with Willem! Anyways that’s all for this little reading update and I will see you all very soon!
I am a complete mess right now. School has completely taken over life and I have only been able to read when I am like half asleep…needless to say, I have gotten some reading done lately so here is what’s going on with that!
So as I have mentioned in previous blog posts, I am re reading a Harry Potter book a month in preparation for me to read the 8th book. The other day I started Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and I am on page 50 I believe. I love reading Harry Potter, especially in the cooler months and it just makes me feel happy and less stressed out from my daily life. After this I am hoping to finish A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas because it is such beautiful, entertaining book that I need to finish ASAP! Apart from reading, I have also been writing a lot lately because of contest deadlines and whatnot. I really recommend entering online writing contests if you enjoy writing. There are ones for fiction, non fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, romance, and really any genre and style. I really enjoy entering these because I always grow as a writer with each piece of work I submit.
That was a mini update in my reading and a tip if you like writing so I hope you liked it and found it somewhat interesting! Don’t forget to check out my last post and keep your eyes out for my next one 🙂
