November 2017 TBR!

Ah! October really just flew by and I am scrambling to catch up. November means colder day, NaNoWriMo, and less time for reading…but I am really hoping to get a good amount of books read this coming month!

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare 

Image result for clockwork prince

As I have mentioned in my previous reading updates, I am currently re reading The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare, and am loving it! Clockwork Prince is the second in the trilogy, which follows the prequel, Clockwork Angel. Clockwork Angel follows Tessa Gray, an American girl sent to London to visit her brother, but upon her arrival is kidnapped by the “Dark Sisters” for her mysterious shape shifting talents. These books take place in the late 1800’s in London, which makes it that much better too!

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia 

Image result for eliza and her monsters

I am in the mood to re read, so I decided to pick up a fun contemporary as the days get darker and colder. Eliza and Her Monsters is about a girl named Eliza who is the anonymous creator of the online webcomic phenomenon “Monstrous Sea”. She is awkward, quiet and very relatable. This book has some romance sprinkled in as well, but ultimately it is about feeling comfortable with who you are. I read this back in July for the BookTubeaThon and absolutely adored it so I am looking forward to revisitng these characters.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas 

Image result for a court of thorns and roses

This was a book that I read only a few months ago as well, but I really want to try reading the second one again so I thought diving back into the first one would make that process easier. A Court of Thorns and Roses is about a girl named Feyre who goes hunting in the woods, only to shoot a wolf that is really a faerie. Killing a faerie is a crime, so when she is given the option to die or live out the rest of her mortal life in the faerie realm as a punishment. She chooses to live, and as the story goes on she realizes that her captor may not be the beast she thought he was. This is a very steamy fantasy book and I am really looking forward to refreshing my mind on this world!

Since November is going to be a very busy month writing and school wise, I want to keep by TBR low so I don’t disappoint myself too much…hopefully I will be able to squeeze a few more books onto there but only time will tell. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #4!

Fantasy Recommendations for Fall/Winter!

Fall and winter are the perfect time to snuggle up with a good fantasy read, so here are a few recommendations to get you going!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

a court of thorns and roses

Sarah J Maas is excellent at writing these dark and addicting fantasy reads. This is a very loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and follows our main character Feyre who while hunting, kills a wolf that turns out to be a faerie. Her punishment for this is that she can either die or live out the rest of her mortal life in the faerie realm. Choosing to live, she moves in with a faerie who seems like a monster at first, but she realizes there may be more to him than she thought. A Court of Thorns and Roses is such a swoony book that will leave you wanting more and more. There are also two other books in this trilogy so you can binge the whole thing!

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare 

Image result for clockwork angel

I realized that I rarely recommend this trilogy on my blog, and that is because I haven’t read it in forever! I have decided to reread it though this month, so I thought I would recommend it since it is such a dark, cozy read. Clockwork Angel takes place in London, which screams fall with its dark, rainy days (usually). It follows Tessa, a girl from America who receives a letter from her brother telling her to come visit him in London so she does, only to discover it is a trap and is kidnapped. However, Will Herondale, a Shadowhunter, saves the day and brings her back to the institute where he lives. There we are introduced to more Shadowhunters, more action and adventure, and even a heart wrenching love triangle. This trilogy is amazing and if you haven’t read it, definitely check it out!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs 

Image result for miss peregrine's home for peculiar children

This book is a perfect fall/winter read because it is definitely on the darker and peculiar side (haha). Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children follows a boy named Jake, who visits his late grandfather’s home country of Wales after his mysterious death. There, he finds the gateway to an alternate time where he meets the peculiar group of children who grew up with Jake’s grandfather. I haven’t read this book in what feels like ages so I have the sudden urge to re read this one too as the days get darker!

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

Shatter-Me-2

Another trilogy I haven’t read in ages and am dying to re read. Shatter Me follows a girl named Juliette who has been locked up for over a year because of her powers, alone, until a boy named Adam is brought in with her and breaks her out. I really enjoyed the Shatter Me trilogy, which is actually soon going to be a series! It was fast paced, fun but also on the darker side that makes it a perfect read for the fall/winter time.

Grimm’s Fairy Tales by the Grimm Brothers 

Image result for grimms fairy tales

Fairy tales are the perfect stories to read during the fall/winter time, especially Grimm’s fairy tales because they are so dark and twisty. There is Little Red Cap, Rapunzel, Hansel and Grethel, etc. They are all stories we know and love, but there are also some in there I guarantee most of you haven’t read. So snuggle up and crack open this magical book because it will give you the cozy vibe you need during the colder months,

Those are a few recommendations for the fall/winter time and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #2!

 

Fall Reading Recommendations!

Fall is my favourite month because the weather has cooled down so it isn’t 100 hundred degrees anymore, and it is the perfect time of the year to curl up and read a good book with a cup of hot tea or coffee. Personally, I feel like the books I read in the fall are more heavy and dark books, so here are a few recommendations!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

TheRavenBoys

This is the perfect book to read in the fall because it is dark and mystical and is definitely a page turner. The Raven Boys follows a cast of different characters and one of them is Blue Sargent, a girl from a family of psychics who doesn’t seem to possess the same gift. That is until one night she sees a ghost of the soon-to-be dead and he introduces himself as Gansey. Blue is mystified at how she could see him, but when she meets the real Gansey one day, things flip upside down. I really enjoyed this book and am excited to continue on with the series this fall!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

throne-of-glass-sarah-j-maas

Throne of Glass is a dark, high fantasy series that has magic and assassins, and is overall a very complex and interesting story. While I am not a huge fan of the books after book two, I did really enjoy this first one and am dying to give it a re read. Throne of Glass follows an assassin named Calaena Sardothian who has been let out of a slave camp so she can participate in a tournament to become the king’s personal assassin. There is a lot of action, romance and adventure and while it has been a while since I first read it, I remember that I loved it!

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King

Image result for the dark tower: the gunslinger

I would say all of Stephen King’s books are very dark, so I had to add one to the list. This is the first book in The Dark Tower series, which has been recently adapted into a movie. Since I have only seen the movie and haven’t read the book (yet), and since the setting sounds pretty complex I won’t try to explain it because I would probably not do it justice! It does sounds like a very adventurous and entertaining read though, and am excited to get to it this fall.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Image result for If I stay

This is a contemporary book that follows a girl named Mia Hall. Mia strives to get accepted into Julliard and live out her dreams of playing the cello, but that is all jeopardized when she and her family get into a car crash. We follow Mia in the past and present, and learn more about her as well as what is going on around her during the crash. This is also a movie, which I really enjoyed, and is dark and sad, but also happy and fluffy a lot of the time!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Image result for the hunger games

The Hunger Games may be one of the darkest books out there because of its concept…but I think that is what makes it so appealing. The Hunger Games, if you didn’t know, follows our main character Katniss who lives in a society where at the age of 12, you are reaped among others to participate in the Hunger Games, where 24 kids are placed in an arena and forced to kill each other to win. The movies are amazing and the books are also good and very fall appropriate so definitely check them out if you haven’t already!

Those are five book recommendations for fall and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!

September 2017 Talk!

I know it is only the middle of the month, but I really wanted to discuss all the books and movies coming out in September, because some of them are really exciting! Anyways, here are the books and movies that I am excited for:

Books:

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas

Image result for tower of darkness sarah j maas

This is the sixth book in the Throne of Glass series, which is a series that I am not caught up with at all… I read the first three books and honestly, I have no idea what happened after that! If you didn’t know, this series follows a female assassin named Celaena Sardothien who has been worked at a slave camp only to be given the option to be freed by fighting for the chance to be the King’s personal assassin. It is a very steamy and action packed series, and I am hoping I will get caught up with it eventually! This book will be on shelves on September 5th.

Warcross by Marie Lu

Image result for warcross marie lu

 

From what I have heard, this has gotten great reviews and is something a lot of people are excited for. I enjoyed Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy and will definitely check her new book out! In this book, Warcross isn’t just a game but a way of life, and our main character takes a chance to make some cash by hacking into this elite program, but in the end, things definitely do not turn out how she hoped. The whole video game aspect has me really interested and I cannot wait to get my hands on this book on September 12th.

Movies:

IT

Image result for it movie 2017

IT is a remake movie adapted from the Stephen King novel and I am so, so excited to watch this! Horror movies are movies I don’t generally watch often, but lately I have been in the mood so I cannot wait till this is released. This movie/book follows a group of kids who encounter a creature called “it” that preys on children and takes form as a sadistic clown. The trailer looked really creepy and amazing, and it is released in theaters on September 8th.

Flatliners

Image result for flatliners movie 2017

This is another remake movie about a group of doctors who make their hearts stop and then beat again, returning from whatever mysterious dimension we go to after death. They get carried away though, and stop their heart for longer and longer each time only to face the severe consequences afterwards. This movie also looked very creepy and eerie, and surprisingly looked like something I would enjoy. It also stars Nina Dobrev, and if you read some of my previous blog posts you would know I am a sucker for the Vampire Diaries TV series! Flatliners comes out on September 29th.

Those are all the books and movies I am looking forward to in the month of September and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Bingeable Book Series!

Books I DNF…

We ALL have those books that we just picked up but never got around to finishing, and I am too, guilty of that. Just because we DNF (stands for ‘did not finish’)a book doesn’t mean we don’t like it, and for me I usually DNF a book because I get distracted by a new shiny one. Anyways, here are the books I have DNFed and don’t forget to comment the ones you have below!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

courtofmistandfury

Okay, I absolutely adored A Court of Thorns and Roses, but A Court of Mist and Fury is HUGE and high fantasy which takes me a long time to get into. I was really enjoying it though, and got halfway before I just put it down and never picked it up again. When I do get around to picking it up again, I will have to restart it because I totally forget what happened!

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

talesfromtheshadowhunteracademy

Cassandra Clare is one of my all time favourite authors, and I love all her work, but I just couldn’t get into this novella bind up! I know I will love it because I didn’t get far at all into the book before I put it down and got distracted with other books, but once I pick it up again and actually read it more I know I will kick myself in the head for not finishing it sooner.

The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

30145666

This is a newer release so I don’t feel that bad about not finishing it, but still. I was actually enjoying this book until Lord of Shadows came out and totally consumed my life. I do plan on jumping into The Dark Prophecy again because I have heard amazing things about it and know that I will love it just like every other Rick Riordan book I have read!

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Image result for the sky is everywhere

I’ll Give You the Sun was a FANTASTIC book and I was so pumped and ready to pick up Nelson’s other book, The Sky is Everywhere, but somewhere along the line of reading it I just never got around to finishing it. It wasn’t anything I was loving, but I did like it and wanted to continue reading it…but didn’t. It is a contemporary though so maybe I will pick it up again this summer during the BookTubeaThon if I have time and read it. Who knows though because it was a DNF!

Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

Image result for lock and key sarah dessen

For some reason this Sarah Dessen book didn’t grab me as much as the others did. I still plan on reading it though, because I am sure that I will like it, but for now it is in my DNF pile…which is something I never thought I would do to a contemporary because I usually fly through them. I do think that it was because I had another book I wanted to read, but still! No excuse, I need to read this book.

Those are the books I DNFed and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2, for some motivation and tips!

Long Reads!

I do enjoy my quick, easy reads, but it is also nice to fully indulge in a book for several hundred pages. If you too enjoy long reads then here are a few recommendations!

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clareLady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – This is a pretty thick book, being almost seven hundred pages long, but it is absolutely fantastic. You do have to read all of Cassandra Clare’s other books before you read this one, but trust me, it is so worth it. Lady Midnight follows a group of Shadowhunters (half human half angel) who try to uncover the mystery of Emma Carstairs’ parents’ death, but it turns out to be more than they bargained for. A story with a great cast of characters and a thrilling plot!

SaintAnythingSaint Anything by Sarah Dessen – This book is a little over four hundred pages, and that is quite a lot for a contemporary, but since summer is here it is a definite read. Saint Anything is about a girl named Sydney who is used to being in the shadows, unseen and unheard. But when her brother does something that puts a spotlight on the entire family, she finds that she can’t outrun it. I just flew through this book, and I definitely believe it is one of Sarah Dessen’s best work.

anemberintheashesAn Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – An Ember in the Ashes is a fantastic book that was easily one of my favourite reads of 2015. It was action packed, and had some drops of romance here and there. An Ember in the Ashes follows two perspectives, Laia and Elias. Laia is on the run after her brother was taken by the Empire, and Elias is trying to escape the Empire. We follow these two misfits as their paths intertwine and they face a series of deadly challenges. It is a gripping read that you will devour whole.

throne-of-glass-sarah-j-maasThrone of Glass by Sarah J Maas – In this series, the books just keep getting larger and larger, but I am okay with that. Throne of Glass follows a badass assassin, Celeana Sardothien, who is being given the option to leave the slavery camp she is trapped in forever, or work for the king. She jumps at the offer only to be faced with a series of battles to the death, in order to become the King’s personal assassin. This is a book with lots of epic fight scenes, and scenes that will keep you on your toes and wanting more!

the-unexpected-everything-9781481404549_hrThe Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – For a contemporary this thing is HUGE, being over five hundred pages and all. The Unexpected Everything follows a girl named Andie who had her whole summer mapped out. She had a great internship lined up, was on the way to have a quick summer romance, and was ready to have epic adventures with her friends. That is, until her father, a popular congressman, is involved in a political scandal and her plans dramatically change. This is another fun, summery read that I definitely recommend since summer is around the corner!

Those are some longer book recommendations to read and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Writer’s Motivation Pack!

Spring/Summer 2017 TBR!

Okay, so I have a lot of books on my shelf, as well as books coming out, that I want to read with absolutely no time. I am sure a lot of you can relate, so here are all the books I want to and need to finish before the end of the summer!

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

the-unexpected-everything-9781481404549_hr 

This book is about a girl named Andie who has her whole summer planned out. She has a great internship lined up, a great group of friends, and is ready to for a quick summer romance…as long as it is no more than three weeks. But when her congressman father gets caught up in a political scandal, she finds her summer flipped upside down and her organized summer becomes an insane mess. I am currently reading this book, but I have been distracted by all these new releases that it keeps getting pushed back. I am determined to finish it very soon though!

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

talesfromtheshadowhunteracademy

This is a book a bind up of novellas written in Simon Lewis’s POV, and follow him on his journey through the Shadowhunter Academy as he sets out to become a Shadowhunter. I started this earlier this year, but again, I just got distracted by other books and never got around to finishing it.

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

themoonandmore

The Moon and More follows our main character, Emaline, who is entering the summer before college, and during this last summer, she meets a city boy named Theo. Theo isn’t the typical boy she would like, but she can’t help but feel drawn to him in this summer contemporary. I love Sarah Dessen books, so I know I will eventually read it this summer, it has just been sitting on my shelf for a while.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas 

courtofmistandfury

A Court of Mist and Fury is the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses, which follows Feyre, a girl who while hunting for her family shoots and kills a wolf. The only thing is, the wolf turns out to be a faerie, and she forced to make the decision to die or live out the rest of her mortal life in the faerie world. She chooses to leave for the faerie world, and realizes it is not anything like she believed. I devoured the first book, but this book is quite chunky so I am going to need a little motivation to tackle it, and a lot of time.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

la-et-crooked-kingdom-20160222

This is the sequel to Six of Crows, which follows a group of misfits who attempt an impossible, suicidal mission. Yet, none of them have anything to lose, and the reward is too good to pass up, leading to a quest of insanity. I enjoyed the first book, but I definitely need to give it a re read because I am a little hazy on the details.

Those are a few books that I NEED to finish before the fall, and before school starts back up again. I have high hopes to get them done, but there are also a lot of amazing books coming out so we shall see. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!

Never Will I Ever Book Tag!

I was tagged by Ann at https://annthebookmaster.wordpress.com/ so thank you, and definitely check out her post as well as her blog!

Never Will I Ever Ship This: Pick a Book/Series OTP That You Will Never Ship

88fe50cc73e03e2cef66b1b3a7759602

For this, I definitely have to go with Chaol and Celaena from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. I did not agree with that ship at all because one, I am a DorianxCalaena shipper and also I just didn’t think they went that well together! Chaol is too uptight for Calaena which is why I haven’t and never will ship this OTP.

Never Will I Ever Forget This Ending: Pick a Book/Series Ending You Will Never Forget (In a Good or Bad Way)

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clare

This was difficult because there are a lot of endings I will never forget, whether it is in a good way or a bad way. I will say that at the moment, the ending for Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare had me shook, and lets be honest, it still does. I won’t spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t read it, but if you have, you know what I mean. Those last few lines though!

Never Will I Ever Get Over this Character’s Death: Pick a Character Death from a Book/Series That You Will Never Stop Mourning (Give Spoiler Warning)

thevampirediaries

Okay, I am kind of bending the rules a bit because I am choosing a two characters from The Vampire Diaries TV show, but it is also book so at the same time its all okay. So if you haven’t completed all the seasons of The Vampire Diaries, than don’t keep reading!!!

So I have two for this answer at that is Jeremy’s death in season six, I think, because it was so heartbreaking to watch Elena lose not only her parents, but her brother as well. I know he comes back and all, like everyone seems to, but still, it broke me! Another that actually stayed dead, is Stefan Salvatore in that final episode…I cried so hard and will never stop mourning him.

Never Will I Ever Stop Crying Over this Book: Pick a Book/Series That You Will Always Cry Over (In a Good or Bad Way)

thWCIJ53JD

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan! I chose this because even though it wasn’t all I was expecting, I cried because the series that I had been reading for years and years had ended and my favourite characters would no longer be in the spotlight anymore. I knew I would see Percy and Annabeth and the others in other Rick Riordan books, but this was the end of their adventures and the thought just makes me cry an ocean of tears!

Never Will I Ever Read this Book/Series: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Read

the-100-tv-series-wallpapers

 

I was going to say The Vampire Diaries by LJ Smith, but I decided to change it up a bit and so I went with The 100 by Kass Morgan. I absolutely love the TV show, especially this current season, but I do not see myself ever picking up the book series just because I have heard from many reliable sources, that it is nowhere near as fantastic as the TV series. I don’t like saying never though, so possibly one day I will give it a try, but at this point, I don’t see myself reading it any time soon.

Never Will I Ever Stop Raving About this Book/Series:  Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Stop Raving About

 

I have to go with two different series for this, just because I think they are both amazing. The first is, of course, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because not only does it hold a lot of sentimental value to me, but I also just love the characters, the story and the world. The second series is the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier which is just such an interesting and fun trilogy on time travel that I recommend to as many people as possible!

Never Will I Ever Lend this Book/Series to a Friend: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Let Anyone Borrow

harry-potter-philosophers-stone-book

My Harry Potter series by JK Rowling because not only is it the beautiful UK edition, but it is also all paperback meaning it bends easily. I want everyone to read Harry Potter but they can just go to the library and pick up the series instead of ruining my gorgeous book covers!

I tag whoever wants to do this tag!

That is all for the Never Will I Ever Book Tag and thanks again, Ann, for tagging me to do this fun tag! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: May 2017 Talk!

May 2017 Talk!

May is filled with new releases and here are a few that I am super excited for!

Books ~

9781408857915A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas – This is the third book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy which is pretty fantastic by the way, so if you haven’t read the first two books…you should go do that. The first book, A Court of Thorns and Roses is loosely based upon Beauty and the Beast, and is about a girl named Feyre who while hunting for her family, kills a faerie disguised as a wolf and as punishment, is forced to live out the rest of her mortal life in the faerie lands. I am super excited to see where this third (and final?) book leads us! A Court of Wings and Ruin comes out on May 2nd.

30145666The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan – This is the second book in Rick Riordan’s Trials of Apollo series, which I think is a really fun and entertaining series so far. The first book, The Hidden Oracle, follows the sun god Apollo who after angering his father, Zeus, is cast down to Earth as a mortal. Apollo is a hilarious character and the first book had so many great scenes that had me laughing to the point where I had tears, so I am intrigued to see how the second book pans out. This book comes out on May 2nd.

30312860Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – If you have read previous blog posts of mine, you would know I am a huge fan of Jenny Han’s contemporary trilogy, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, so obviously the third and final book will be on here! The first book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, follows our main character Lara Jean who has always written love letters to the boys she has loved before, but with no intention of them ever being seen. But when all her love letters are mysteriously sent out, she finds herself digging a deep hole of lies to prevent her current crush from knowing the truth. The first two books are very quirky and fun and I really recommend you read them before the new one comes out! This book comes out on May 2nd.

untitledLord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – I honestly cannot wait any longer to read this book, because I just know it is going to blow me away. This is a continuation of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter world, and follows Emma Carstairs who’s parents disappeared during the Dark War but one day wash up on shore, dead. Confused and upset, she struggles to uncover the truth with the help of her best friend, Julian. The first book, Lady Midnight was amazing so I have high hopes! This book comes out on May 23rd.

Movies ~

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Vol.-2-PosterGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – I thought Guardians of the Galaxy was freaking amazing, so I cannot wait to finally see the second one. I am not very good at explaining what the movie is about, but it is a sci-fi movie that has a great soundtrack so that should be enough motivation to watch it! This movie will be in theatres on May 5th.

Diary-of-a-Wimpy-Kid-The-Long-Haul-movieDiary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul – I have been reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books since I was a little kid, and honestly I still read them. I really enjoyed the three original movies with Zachary Gordon and Devon Bostick, so I am a little skeptical with this new one but we will see. This movie is about a middle schooler named Greg who’s family is going on road trip for his grandmother’s birthday, but really wants to attend a gaming convention that is on the way there. I don’t have super high hopes but who knows, maybe it will surprise me. This movie comes out on May 19th.

14616_posterEverything Everything – This is also based on a book by Nicola Yoon, and I really enjoyed the book so I am looking forward to the movie next month! Everything Everything is about a girl named Maddie who has been house bound her entire life because she is allergic to everything in the outside world. When a boy named Ollie moves next door though, she finds herself taking new risks and realizing that the way she is living, isn’t really a life at all. The trailer looks amazing and I think this is going to be an amazing book-to-movie adaptation. This movie is in the theatres on May 19th.

Those are all of the books and movies I am excited for next month, and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Quick Reads!

Trashy YA Novels

By trashy, I mean filled with YA tropes and clichés…but in the best way possible. I absolutely love trashy YA, I devour it because it is made of the most addicting things ever! Anyways, here are a list of five of my favourite trashy YA novels.

obsidian-cover5The Lux Series by Jennifer L Armentrout – These books are about a human and a hot, alien badboy falling for each other…how more cliché can it get? I read the first book in one sitting because I didn’t want to stop, and same with the second. The series falters a bit after the second, but I still really enjoy it overall. If you want a fast-paced, trashy YA series, definitely give this a go!

thesummeriturnedpretty

 

 

The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy by Jenny Han – Cliché count…this books takes place in the summer(1), it has a love triangle(2), it has a good boy and a bad boy(3), it has a girl who doesn’t think she is pretty but really is(4)…the list goes on and on and on. This is a very controversial trilogy because some people enjoy it while others don’t, but personally I think it is a lot of fun.

a court of thorns and roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – This has a lot of romance in it, and also has the typical cliché of “good boy” and “bad boy” but I love it! It is a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast and just makes you swoon. It is probably the least trashy book on this list, but still, it has its clichés that I adore.

selection-cvr

 

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass – I swear these books are the definition of trashy which is probably why I finished the first three books in two days…once you pick them up you do not want to put them down which is why I love all these trashy books. They always make me want to read. The Selection has romance and tension and is overall a really fun and entertaining read!

 

tumblr_mixxgtPAsX1s3jza0o1_500Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins – These are some of my favourite contemporary books, but they definitely fit into the category of trashy YA. They have such adorable romances and clichés that even though they are heavily used, you can’t help but appreciate. Once you pick up the first one, you want to pick up the next one right away and voila! You are once again sucked into the trashy YA’s.

Those are five of my favourite trashy YA novels, and I use trashy in a good way I swear. If you want to a quick, entertaining read definitely give these a try! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!
