Top 5 Favourite Covers!

Sorry there were no blog posts on Monday and Tuesday but from now on there will be so again, I am so sorry about that. Anyways, now I am going to share my top 5 favourite book covers in order so I hope you enjoy!

#5. Winter by Marissa Meyer – Winter is the final book in the Lunar Chronicles series and while it is an amazing read, the cover is gorgeous! The cover has our new POV, Winter, holding a glowing red apple because if you didn’t know, each new Lunar Chronicles book is based on a different fairy tale. If you haven’t read the Lunar Chronicles definitely go pick it up, read it and then stare at the beautiful covers!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Jonny Duddle Edition (1)#4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by Harry Potter (UK Edition) – I bought the Harry Potter series in the UK edition because they are stunning but my favourite is definitely the third one. Prisoner of Azkaban used to be one of my least favourite Harry Potter books story wise and cover wise but now I love both. The blues and the patronus featured on the cover just make it that much better! Honestly, if for some odd reason then you NEED to pick up this fantastic series. alexandra-bracken-passenger

#3. Passengers by Alexandra Bracken – When I saw this cover I was like “I HAVE to buy this” and I did but sadly didn’t enjoy the story as much as I did the cover. Passengers is a time travel book and the illustration of the boat on the cover of the book is so incredible that I really wish I loved the story. I am going to give the book another try eventually but until then I will just enjoy its beautiful cover.

the-assassins-blade#2. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas – I haven’t read this book but the cover is so pretty! It has blues and purples that blend nicely but all of Sarah J Maas’s books are breathtaking so I am not surprised this one is also amazing! Please read all of Sarah J Maas’s books though because you will not regret it.

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clare#1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – This is one of my favourite books EVER and it just happens to have a beautiful cover so that is double points to Cassandra Clare. The cover of Lady Midnight is a picture of our main character, Emma Carstairs floating under water with a sword in hand. The shot is so stunning and captures a certain scene perfectly in the book. Looking at the cover gets me super excited for the next book, Lord of Shadows coming out in May!

That is all for this blog post and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading Update.

P.S. I couldn’t put in a picture for Winter so sorry about that!

Series I Need to Finish!

I am pretty good about finishing series, trilogies and duologies when I start them, but there a few that I for some unknown reason haven’t finished.

sixSix of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo – I have read the first book, Six of Crows and thought it was a pretty amazing book yet I still haven’t finished the final book, Crooked Kingdom. The books is just sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to read it and hopefully I will get to it this year!

throneofglasssetThrone of Glass series by Sarah J Maas – I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series, Throne of Glass and even the second book, Crown of Midnight, but for some reason it took me FOREVER to finish Heir of Fire and even then, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped. The sixth and final book is coming out this year and at this point I don’t know when I am going to continue on with this series.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan – There is only two books out at the moment and I have both, but still haven’t got around to reading this second one, Hammer of Thor. I really want to read it though because I loved Sword of Summer! Is was witty and such a fun and fast paced read so I hope I get to the next book in the next few months.

Kiss of Deception trilogy by Mary E. Pearson – I read Kiss of Deception either two or one years ago and I liked it a lot. It was very action packed, and I also really enjoyed reading in all of our characters POV which is rare for me when there are multiple. The final book came out last year but I still need to catch up and read the second one, Heart of Betrayal!

Those are the 4 main series that I haven’t finished but really want to and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading Update!

 

September TBR 2016!!!

I know there is still about a week left of August but I am so excited to get to my September TBR! I got quite a few books that I am pumped to read so here it is 🙂

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead – This is the spin off series of Vampire Academy, which I absolutely loved, and I am so excited to finally get to it! I have heard nothing but great things so I know I will love it. From what I gathered, it follows Sydney and Adrian instead of Rose and Lissa so that will be an interesting change!

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard – This book has been sitting on my shelf since February and it is about time I get to it. The first book, Red Queen, was very fun and fast paced and I really enjoyed it! If Glass Sword is anything like it I will definitely be anticipating the third book right after.

Empire of Dust by Eleanor Herman – This is the second book next to Legacy of Kings which is a YA Historical fiction book. I love Ancient Greece and it takes place in Ancient Greece so I obviously loved this book. It was just so action packed and amazing and I cannot wait to finally dive into the second book!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas – I have wanted to read the Throne of Glass novella for a while now but I just haven’t picked it up. I know I will love it though, just because it is by Sarah J Maas but also because it is a novella to such an epic series. Seriously, if you haven’t read the Throne of Glass series you need to pick it up. Now.

Those are all the books I want to get to in September and hopefully I actually do because my school starts in the beginning of September so we will see how busy I am! I always make time to read though.

Intimidating TBR

I have 2 weeks of school left which means it is almost summer which means more time for reading, so, I put together a list of books that have been on my shelf forever and I need to read ASAP before any others. Comment some books you need to get to this summer as well!

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen is a book I have had for almost a year and I really want to get to. I am planning on reading this after I complete the Vampire Academy series so I am really excited to read it! I have heard that it will make me cry so I am prepared for that as well…

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas is a book I have also owned for about a year now and I have been told many, many times that I need to read this book so I have planned to pick it up after I finish Saint Anything. I know I will love this book I have just been lazy getting around to read it!

Four by Veronica Roth is a book I have had for 2 years now and I just haven’t finished it. I read the first half but got really bored by it but I really wished I finished it…Hopefully I will get to this book soon because I do want to complete it but it isn’t my highest priority at the moment reading wise.

The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare is a book I really want to read as well even though I have heard mixed things. I just adore the Shadowhunter world and I cannot wait to give it a go!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas is a novella to her Throne of Glass series which is fantastic and I have heard this is as well. I am excited to learn more about the Throne of Glass world and the characters in it! I am planning on getting to this book sometime in the summer.

Those are all the books on my intimidating TBR and I hope you enjoyed it 🙂

Books I Own but Haven’t Read

Here is a list of all the books I own but just haven’t read, not because they are boring but because I keep putting them off for new books I get but I think we all have that problem.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. I am not entirely sure what this is about but I know it is some sort of contemporary book. I will get to this eventually but it is not on the top of my list to read at the moment so I am not sure when that will be.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I am currently reading this book and loving it so it will be off this list pretty soon! Highly recommend it if you love Harry Potter.

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E Pearson. This is the second book in the Kiss of Deception series and while I really enjoyed the first book, this book just started off with a slow start and I wasn’t able to get into it. Hopefully if I pick it up again, read more and be able to get into the book.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. I just recently bought this book and I am planning on reading it sometime in April. I heard it is a bit slower compared to the first book which I enjoyed but I am only hoping that I will like this book just as much.

Four by Veronica Roth. I started this book (or is it a novella?) two years ago and I just found Four’s point of view very boring but maybe if it I try reading it now it will be more appealing, fingers crossed.

Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. This is the only Cassandra Clare book I have not completed but only because I got distracted with her Infernal Devices trilogy and never got around to finishing this book but I will read it!

New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I have only read Twilight it the series and it was okay but I never had any motivation to continue on with the series but I think eventually I will finish it just because it is so popular.

Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead. My cousin recommended this series to me and it is loved by a lot of people so I thought I would give the series a shot! I haven’t gotten around to it yet but I will soon. I don’t read much vampire based books so this should be good!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas. This is a novella to Sarah J Maas’s Throne of Glass series which is amazing. I have heard this novella is really good so I am planning on reading it before  I pick up her newest book, Queen of Shadows.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. When I picked this book up, I just wasn’t in the mood for high fantasy so when I attempted to read it I just wasn’t in the right mood so I never finished it. Again, I hope to get to this soon since the next book in this series is coming out very soon.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I just have heard great things about this book and I saw it for a very cheap price so I thought why not? Sadly, I haven’t been able to pick it up because of all the other books I have to read…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I have heard so much about this series and it makes me extremely excited to read it! This book is very different from what I usually read so it will be a great way to get a look at other ‘types’ of YA books. I am planning on reading this over my Spring Break which is in the next 2 weeks!

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I bought this book on my tablet because it was only $2 but I haven’t tried reading it yet. I don’t know when I am going to read this book but hopefully soon and I really would like to love it!

Passengers by Alexandra Bracken. Okay, so everyone seems to love this book but I am halfway through and I am very bored…I put this book down a month ago after trying to read it but I just can’t get into it but I am determined to finish it!

So those are all the books on my shelf that I have not read and it actually isn’t a whole lot considering I have just over 100 books! Anyway I hope you enjoyed reading this and comment below some books you own but haven’t read yet either!

PS: A Lady Midnight book review will be coming soon!
