So I haven’t written anything for NaNoWriMo this week…I am so mad at myself for not finding the time to actually sit down and write this week but just so much has been going on! I’m not going to give up though, I can write 10,000 in 2 days, right? Anyways, I am going to try and catch up as much as I can this weekend and I am going to try my hardest to write everyday.
For reading, I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I am about 100 pages in. Again, haven’t had much time for reading either because I’ve been crazy busy but I’m trying. I also tried reading The Last Star by Rick Yancy but I really wasn’t feeling it so I put it down and maybe I’ll pick it up again in a few months. I also tried reading The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson and this is my first Jandy Nelson book ever but I didn’t really find the story that interesting and I got bored reading it. I still want to give I’ll Give You the Sun a try though because I have heard nothing but great things! Anyways, this week was an epic reading and writing fail so I am hoping I will be able to pick things back up this weekend, so fingers crossed.
That’s all for my NaNoWriMo and Reading Update and I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
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 🙂
November is right around the corner which also means NaNoWriMo! Since my November will be occupied by writing at least 1,667 words a day, I have low reading standards for this month. I do have 3 books I would like to finish by the end of the month though, and 2 of them are quite lengthy so fingers crossed I get them done!
The Last Star by Rick Yancy – This is the finale to the 5th Wave trilogy which is pretty amazing I must say. While I didn’t love the second book, I have high expectations for this book and I hope it is up to my satisfaction! The first book follows a girl named Cassie who after an alien apocalypse breaks out, struggles to be reunited with her brother after he is taken by the government and brought to a safe haven for kids.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – I am already half way through this book but for some reason I put it down and haven’t picked it up since! So far this book is so so good and I cannot wait to finish it! The first book, A Court of Thorns and Roses, is about a girl named Feyre who is brought to a magical faerie land in payment after killing a wolf in the forest who turned out to be a faerie. A whole lot of other crazy, steamy stuff happens and it is just pure amazingness.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling – I am so happy I decided to re read the Harry Potter books because they are just entertaining and great. Since it is November, I am re reading the 5th one which also happens to be the largest of the 7. Perfect considering I am focusing most of my time on NaNoWriMo this month…But anyways I am super excited to continue on with fantastic world!
Those are the 3 books I am hoping to complete in the month of November! Don’t forget to comment your TBR below because I would love to know what you’re reading as well 🙂
I went to the library quite a bit this week and got some really awesome books that I am super excited to read!
The Last Star by Rick Yancy – I absolutely loved The 5th Wave which is the first book in this trilogy and I have heard really good things about this finale so I have some high expectations for this book! The first book takes place when an alien apocalypse has began and the main character Cassie is struggling to find her brother after he was taken to a ‘safe haven’ by the government. I really really recommend the first book and I am so excited to finally get a chance to read the final book!
To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han – I cannot believe I haven’t read a Jenny Han book yet…but now I am going to change that because I officially will be hopefully one this month! I don’t have too much of an idea of what it is about but I am going to take a wild guess and say that the main character writes letters to all the boys she loved before…Anyways, I am really pumped to read this because I love contemporaries!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen – Yes, I got another Sarah Dessen book because I just love them so much! I find that I read them super fast because I just cannot put them down. Not sure what it is about but I am sure like all of Sarah Dessen’s books it won’t disappoint me.
Those are all the books I got at the library and I hope you enjoyed this little blog post!
There are a few books that I have been eyeing for a while so here is a list of the few that I want the most and will probably get soon! Comment down below if you like Sarah J Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series or her Throne of Glass series more…I like A Court of Thorns and Roses a teeny bit more. Also, don’t forget to check out my last post: Reading Routine!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah Maas – I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses about 2 weeks ago and LOVED it so I am really excited to pick the next one up! I have heard amazing things and its huge so that is even better.
The Last Star by Rick Yancy – I really liked the first book in this sci-fi trilogy, The 5th Wave, and while the second book was meh I am really pumped to pick up the final book! I am really curious to see how everything wraps up and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – I read this book earlier this summer and absolutely adored it but I borrowed it from the library so I don’t have my own copy. Since I enjoyed it so much though, I am really looking forward to purchasing my own so I can read it whenever!
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas – I have read the first 3 books in the Throne of Glass series but I have yet to pick up the second one. I want to soon though because the fifth and final book of this series is coming out this coming September and I want to read the fourth one before the final one comes out!!!
Those are a few of the books I want to buy the most and I hope you liked it! I won’t be posting tomorrow just because it is my birthday (yay) but I will be back with another on Wednesday!
