Most Anticipated Book Releases of 2018!

There are a fair amount of books I am looking forward to this year, and while I tried to make a list of the top 8 I was most excited for, I could only come up with a top 7…but oh well, I wanted to choose books that I am just dying to get my hands on, and while I am sure I will be adding to this list as the year goes on, these are the 7 most current book releases I am anticipating in the year of 2018!

Meet Cute: Some People are Destined to Meet by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Nicola Yoon, Nina LaCour, Emery Lord, Katherine McGee, Dhonielle Clayton, Katie Cotugno, Jocelyn Davis, and Sona Charaipotra

If you been paying attention to almost any of my other blog posts, you would know I am a sucker for cheesy romances, and this book has that written all over it. Basically this book was made for me, and I know I will love it! If you don’t know what a meet cute is…it is basically what it sounds like! When two people who fall for each other meet each other in a cute way. Most movies have meet cutes, and while they are cliche, everyone loves a good meet cute. This book is a collection of different stories featuring different, diverse characters who…you guessed it! Have a bunch of different meet cutes. I don’t know who came up with this idea, but I am all for it. January 2, 2018

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Restore Me was a surprise to all fans of Tahereh Mafi’s “Shatter Me” trilogy, but it was a very pleasant and exciting surprise. It is hard not to love the “Shatter Me” world and characters, and I am thrilled to be getting another book to this series. The synopsis of this book is pretty vague, but from what it says, I gather that while we thought Juliette and Warner and Kenji and Adam were safe, after winning in the last book and all, there is a new threat on the horizon for them to tackle. I am so, so, so excited to get my hands on this book, and cannot wait till it hits the shelves! March 6, 2018

A Reaper At the Gates by Sabaa Tahir

This is the third book in Sabaa Tahir’s “An Ember in the Ashes” series, which follows a series of different characters and an epic world of corruption and danger. In the first book, An Ember in the Ashes, we follow Laia, a girl whose brother is taken by the Empire and she sets off to save him. We also follow the journey of Elias, a soldier of the Empire who wants nothing more to part himself from it. As we read on, we watch as their paths meet and how they help each other reach the other’s goal. I really enjoyed the past two books in this series, and cannot wait for the third book to release! If you love fantasy, and complex characters and worlds, I definitely recommend you get started on these books. April 10, 2018

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandyha Menon

Recently, I picked up Sandyha Menon’s “When Dimple Met Rishi”, and no, I haven’t read it yet but I just know I will absolutely love it! In this new book, we follow Twinkle Mehra, an aspiring filmmaker who is approached with the opportunity to make a film with fellow film geek, Sahil Roy. Excited to show off her talent she agrees, and Sahil just happens to be the twin brother of Twinkle’s long time crush, and the opportunity to spend time with him is something else she can’t pass up…that is, until she starts falling for Sahil instead. This just seems like an adorable contemporary that I would adore, and I also just love reading books where the protagonist is pursuing a creative life because I can easily relate! May 22, 2018

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson always delivers what I go looking for when I pick up her books, and that is a fun, easy contemporary that steals my heart! Her other books like “Since You’ve Been Gone”, is one of my favourite contemporaries and I cannot wait to see what this new book has in store. I didn’t read much of the synopsis because I want to go into this book not really knowing what to expect, but I do know that it involves our main character, Charlie, and her older siblings who are all reunited after years for her sister’s wedding. I am excited and curious to what will happen, and cannot wait for the cute (and cheesy) romance. June 5, 2018

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J Maas

When I was younger, Catwoman was a movie I absolutely adored. She was such a strong and determined woman who not only made me want to be part cat, but someone who was as powerful and confident as she was! I am not entirely sure where this story of Catwoman begins or goes, but I have no doubt that it will be action packed and filled with kick-ass characters. August 7, 2018

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

I haven’t a doubt in my mind that like Cassandra Clare’s other two books in this trilogy, “Lady Midnight” and “Lord of Shadows”, I will absolutely adore this book. Each year her books have become my favourite book of the year, and I cannot wait to dive into this last and final book of the “Dark Artifices” trilogy! The first book follows a big cast of characters, the Blackthorn family and Emma Carstairs, as they try to unravel the mysterious death of Emma’s parents, and in a world of Shadowhunters (half human half angel) and demons, the answer and journey will be anything but ordinary. I cannot express my love for these characters and this world and story enough, other than I am dying for this to be in my hands. December 4, 2018

Book Haul!!! (May 2016)

I just recently was on a short “vacation” because I had a few extra days off school and obviously over those few days I accumulated some books. Luckily not an over alarming amount but just three books which I think is a pretty good amount. Please comment any books you recently got or are going to get soon! Oh and it would mean a lot of you checked out my last post How To: Write a Novel and comment if you want more blog posts like that!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo is the first book in her newest series. I have seen this everywhere on YouTube and it has gotten so many amazing reviews that I was dying to buy it for myself and now I have and I am so excited to read it! I am not really sure what it is about but I know I will love it.

Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead which is the third book in the Vampire Academy series. I recently finished the second one so I got the third one to continue on because I am really enjoying the series! I like how easy it is to read and I am excited to see what happens next.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi is the final book I purchased and is the first book in the Shatter Me trilogy which is absolutely amazing. I also recently read all three of these books but I borrowed them from the library so I finally got myself a copy of the first book and I am so excited to have it. Hopefully soon I will be getting the rest of the trilogy…once I get some money again.

Thanks for reading my book haul, I hope you liked it!

How I Read

image1 (3)

I had been in a reading slump for about a month now because after Lady Midnight it seemed as if I would never read a book as amazing as that ever again but I think I finally managed to pull myself out so since I have been reading again, I thought I would share with you guys my reading routine and how I like to read

I tend to do most of my reading in my bed, right before I go to sleep because there are less distractions but occasionally I will read on my couch that I have in my bedroom because it is equally as comfy. I just fluff up some pillows, make some tea and dive into my book. I usually read anywhere from 20-100 pages in one sitting. It just really depends on how I am liking the book. If the book is meh I might be able to get through 30 pages but if it is still boring I will most likely just set it down and pick up another. When I read I switch positions a lot…I may start by just sitting regularly but by the end I am either on my stomach or lying on my back with my leg thrown over the back of the couch. I just find those positions more comfortable rather than just sitting for some reason.

That was a quick summary of how I read and if you want to check out my last post it was an original book tag I created so you should definitely check it out!
