Monthly Wrap Up/TBR

Hello everyone! I am here to talk to you all about the books that I read last month and what I still hope to read next month in May.

Here is the book I DNF’ed. I just don’t think that I was in the mood for it so I got a few chapters in and just didn’t care and ended up not continuing it. I may check it out in the future but can’t guarantee that I will right away.

Hello!!

This week has been a really good reading week for me! I hope that continues this weekend and the rest of the year as well! I am 13 books away from my reading goal of 75! I am so proud of myself!

Anyways!

Here is what I read so far this week!

I finished Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young, which was so amazing and I loved it so much! It was really amazing and so entertaining and good! And so violent as well! Wow! But had a cute OTP and I loved it so much…so cute!

19b29732-e8b0-4b55-b48a-a9d452e23e13-sky-in-the-deep_cover-image

I also listened to the audiobook of Gilded Cage and that was really good as well! I liked it! I was thinking I wouldn’t really care about it that much but at the end I was really into it and I enjoyed it! I am going to for sure continue the series! The narrator was good as well!

I also read the Haunted Hearts duology and I flew through them! I read Once Upon a Moonlit Path and I read it in one day! It was so good! And I loved the idea of the main character seeing ghosts and the spooky theme of it!

e288f1f9efcc8f1fcc412543883ab7c07241f8ab

This one was good as well, but I prefer the first book more but I can’t wait to see what else comes from this series!

1a4f8d3770605f4dacb20c1dc84d62bbd3e1ae9b

And here is what I am currently reading:

I started Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne which is a Jane Eyre retelling set in space so I can’t wait to see what it brings to the story! I got an ARC for review through booksfortrade so stay tuned for my thoughts on release day!

And I am listening to the audiobook of Simon vs. the Homo Sapien’s Agenda! I am almost done with it so I plan on listening to it tonight while doing my homework!

81VNXRgs+AL

I am also reading Legendary by Stephanie Garber and I plan on reading it on my kindle since I have a review copy of it! Cant wait to finish it, but this will be my gym book!

d33c7c563e7793e669aba358273c0bcb

Here is what I am hoping to get to the rest of this weekend:

I have the audiobook of A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis and I can’t wait to check it out because it sounds really good! I think it takes place in an asylum!

AMadnessSoDiscreet

I don’t know if I’ll get to this book this week but I hope to get to some of it. That is Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I have the audiobook so I plan on listening to it this weekend as well, but I don’t think I’ll finish it!

9781447294146uprooted_6

Lastly I want to start Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian which is something I haven’t been able to read for some reason. I think it’s because I wasn’t in the mood for it.

Hello! I’m here to talk about what I read so far this week and what I plan on reading this weekend! I’m reading some really good books so I hope I get to finish it all this weekend!

So far I finally finished A Torch Against the Night and it was intense! I loved it so much! I cannot wait for the next book to come out! I need it so badly!

1-2

And I thought I had finished The Queens of Innis Lear and apparently I did not….I apparently got only a excerpt because I saw it at Barnes and Noble and apparently I have quite a way left so I am back to reading that book again.

But I also finished Ash Princess! I flew through it so fast! I basically read it in like almost two days I loved it that much!

32505753-_uy1512_ss1512_.jpg

And here are what I plan to finish this weekend…aside from Queens of Innis Lear because that might take me a little bit longer to finish.

I plan on finishing up When Stars Go Out by Carrie Aarons and I am almost done with this so I hope to finish it this weekend! Hopefully today (Friday) since I’m almost half way done with it!

I also started the audiobook of A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. At first I wasn’t feeling this book but I got two hours in and decided to keep going and it’s actually really good! I hope to finish it this weekend and start another book as well!

a-thousand-pieces-of-you

I am planning on starting and finishing Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young! I’ve heard really amazing things about this book so I can’t wait to start it! I need to buckle down on my homework though so this sadly will have to take a backseat to stuff I need to get done.

19b29732-e8b0-4b55-b48a-a9d452e23e13-sky-in-the-deep_cover-image

And lastly I want to listen to the audiobook of The Reader. I plan on listening to a lot of audiobooks while doing homework this weekend so hopefully I can finish A Thousand Pieces of You and start this one while doing homework! Yay!

81IhxZ9yiPL

And that is all I plan on reading this weekend! Big plans but motivation to do homework and listen to my audiobooks! Wish me luck!

Let me know below what you plan on reading this weekend and what you have already read! I would love to know!

Wrap Up/TBR

Hello! So I didn’t post yesterday since I was really tired after work and also from Saturday so yeah! Here’s what I read this week or started. Which isn’t much but hopefully this week will be better!

So I read My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brody Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. It was amazing! I love it so much! I cannot wait for My Plain Jane to come out because it sounds just as amazing! I listened to the audiobook for this and that was definitely the way for me to go because the narrator was amazing! Stay tuned for my review coming up soon!

MyLadyJane_final

And I finally read The Diviners by Libba Bray! It was so amazing and I loved the audiobook so much! It was so interesting and kept me hooked from start to finish! I love the characters and thought they were fantastic! Can’t wait to read the second book!

Bray_Diviners_HC

And I finally finished The Queens of Innis Lear and it was okay. I was slightly disappointed sadly. I wanted to really like it but just wasn’t feeling it that much and it took me a while to really get into it sadly. So very mixed thoughts about this book.

23bb9ead-b2a9-4453-bf93-02856c0d2424-queensinnislear_comp_hi

I also finished Bright Side by Kim Holden and wow. If you want a good book to make your cry this is definitely the book for you to read. It was amazing! Kate was fantastic and I love her!

bright-side-cover-2

And here are the books that I started!

I started the audiobook of A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (Finally). I have wanted to read this book for a while since the next book is coming out soon so I decided to finally start it and it’s really good so far!

1-2

I’m also like 20 pages into Ash Princess, which I hope to finish this week! It’s good so far so I can’t wait to see what happens.

32505753._UY1512_SS1512_

And I started the eARC of When Stars Burn Out by Carrie Aarons. I got the eARC for review and I am also hosting a giveaway for an eARC! It’s down below! I am just starting it so it’s really good so far and I can’t wait to see how else I like it!

I’ll leave the summary for you to read before you enter!

Summary: Stars die in one of two ways.

So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.

But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.

And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.

She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

March Monthly Wrap-Up/ April TBR

Hello everyone! It is now April 1st! Which means its the end of the month of March and the beginning of April! And it is Easter! Happy Easter to those that Celebrate So I am here to wrap up the month and show you my planned TBR for the month of April!

March Reads:

Books I DNF’ed

Strange the Dreamer: 2-stars

-So I tried to read this book since everyone was loving it and loves her work. I got a few hours into the audiobook and I just couldn’t finish it. I tried to read her Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I couldn’t finish it either. Sadly I think that Laini Taylor is not for me.

Wonder Woman Warbringer: No Rating.

-I only got like a chapter in before I got bored. I will try to do it again in the future but I think my mind wasn’t up to reading Wonder Woman. This one I will be trying again in the future but maybe as a physical book instead.

Once Upon a Dream: 2-stars

– I have read the other two books in the series and just wasn’t interested in this book. I think because I just wasnt into this book. I got a like 10 chapters in before I decided this one wasn’t for me. I will still continue to read the Twisted Tales series but this one just fell flat for me.

Physical Books I finished:

Flesh and Blood: 4-stars

-I loved the books I’ve read in this series so I’m happy to continue reading them. I have a few that I want to read and then I plan on continuing the series in order of publication. I love how interesting the characters are and how the book isn’t all medical dialogue. It has some but it’s pretty easy to understand.

The Night Diary: 4-stars

-I received this one for a blog tour and review so I’ll leave the review here for you to check out if you’re interested: Night Diary Blog Tour

Nemesis/Genesis: 5-star-rating-clipart-1/4-stars

-I loved this series, and I was so happy that I got the chance to read Genesis for review for a blog tour. I also got to read Nemesis and it was really good! I enjoyed them both so much! Link for reviews here: Genesis Blog Tour

Blood Rose Rebellion: 4-stars

-I loved this book as well! I want to continue on and I am still currently reading Lost Crow Conspiracy so I hope to finish it by Monday.

Audiobooks Read:

Windwitch: 3-stars

-This one wasn’t as amazing as the first book. I read that one and I loved it. This one took me a while to get into. I liked the character change for some people, and how the friendship was portrayed between Safi and Iseult. Stay tuned for my review for this coming up.

When Dimple Met Rishi: 4-stars

-This was so cute! I loved it! It was so adorable! I thought it was so fantastic!

Glass Sword: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-I know people don’t like this series but I think it’s really good and fantastic! I am obsessed! Glad I decided to binge the last two books in this series before the fourth comes out! Link for review: Glass Sword

King’s Cage: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-Man what a ride! I need the last book ASAP! It was so good! Review for this is on it’s way!

Turtles All the Way Down: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-Damn…this book really got me. Made me feel like I could relate to the character, and that I wasn’t crazy with the thoughts I sometimes have. I needed this book badly.

The Hate U Give: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-One of the best books of the year. Damn. Deserves all the praise it’s getting.

The Young Elites: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-I’m shocked I never thought to pick this up before! It’s so good! And so intense! Like wow! I never saw it going this way at all! Definitely planning on picking the others up in the future!

City of Glass: 4-stars

-Damn this series is addicting! I am legit binging all her books! The audiobooks are really good!

Clockwork Angel: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-Fuck! Jem and Will! Love them!!!! I think I like this series more than The Mortal Instruments.

City of Fallen Angels: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

-Wow! Legit so good! Can’t wait to finish the series in April!

Clockwork Prince: 5-star-rating-clipart-1

I also want to get started on Clockwork Princess audiobook! And I know I won’t be finishing this up this weekend but I want to at least get it started this weekend! I’m so scared with how this will turn out because I am told that it will kill me so badly…so let’s see how this goes!

Weekly Wrap Up

So I surprisingly got a decent amount of reading done! I’m very proud of myself! This year I’ve been relying heavily on audiobooks to get me through my bookshelves. I have been wanting to finally get through the books on my shelves and I’m really happy with my progress so far! I’m buying less books, and reading more books I either received for review or from my shelves.

It’s hard for me to read physical books mainly because I’ve been so busy doing homework or driving to work or class, or working so I hope eventually during my breaks I’ll be able to read physical books again when I don’t have to worry much about school work.

Anyways here are the books that I finished this week!

I started City of Glass and listened to this and finished it in a day. It was amazing! So great! Out of the three Mortal Instruments books I’ve read so far, this is my favorite! Can’t wait to read more!

cityofglass

After talking to one of my friends, she mentioned that I needed to start Clockwork Angel before continuing with the Mortal Instruments series. So I started it and read it in a day. And wow….so so so amazing.

I’m definitely Team Jem, but I do appreciate Will and what he brings to the table. But he’s a jerk.

clockwork

I also finished Genesis by Brendan Reichs. I won’t go into much detail since my blog tour post will be posting this coming week. But it was amazing! Such a great continuation to this series. Gets better with each novel released!

genesis_final-e1515624778911

And I also finished Flesh and Blood. This was another really good book and I definitely want to read more in this book series. I’m excited to read the next book that’s coming out this year! Makes me also want to read the In Death series again. I may pick those back up again!

bi0i-square-1536The Night Diary

And I haven’t started this book yet but it is in my goals this week to start and finish it! It’s a pretty small book so I’m making this book my priority this week! It sounds like it’s going to be beautiful!

And I also haven’t finished the Hate U Give audiobook! I have like 4 hours left so I plan on finishing that either today on the way to and from work or tomorrow. It’s amazing!! Wow! I’m loving it! Highly recommend you check this out!

(Sorry the format has changed for the last two books, was having issues putting the wording between them! Lawddd!)

And that is my wrap up for this week! Let me know down below what books you finished this week as I would love to know!!

Weekly Wrap Up

Hello! This week was a great day for reading!! I finished some books that I have been reading for awhile.

The first book I finished is The Rogue Queen by Emily R King! One of my favorite books this year! It was so amazing and wow! I could not get enough of it when I was reading it and I was sad when it ended because I wanted so much more from it! Obviously I gave it a 5/5 stars! I would give it more if I could!

the-rogue-queen

Also read Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen and that was amazing and great and I loved it! I finished it really quickly and it was so great and worth all the hype it got. Her novels are hit and miss sometimes with me but I’ve loved more of her books than hated them so I’m glad to add this to my loved pile because it was amazing. It’s heartbreaking and so worth the read. 5/5 stars of course!

810NwS97dCL

And I finished this book finally after reading it for a while but I finally sat down and gave this book the time that it needed! Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan was so sweet and cute and I loved everything about it! I didn’t know it was a series but I have the rest of the novels in my collection so definitely will be giving the rest of it a read in the future! Loved it! Solid romance read! 4/5 stars!

5604522e4ec3286d84fe2b6f4ea62e6e

And I FINALLY read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! I really recommend this audiobook! I has a full cast of characters and damn one of the best audiobooks ever! But this book was amazing and addicting! I actually finished the last couple of chapters in class on my iBooks app because I didn’t want to wait to finish it! 5/5 stars of course! What else could I give it!

169fd1ac68f284a6945f37e16d5f0bef

Here are the books that I still need to finish:

So I am actually almost done! I plan on finishing this tonight I have like 100 pages left I think so I just need to buckle down and finish it. Especially since the last episode comes out next Sunday and I need to finish it because I’m spoiled! I’ve been watching the TV show and 10/10 would recommend this. It’s sadly only in the UK at the moment but I’ve been watching it on Youtube and online until it comes to the US! But yes I plan on finishing it tomorrow! Or tonight if I don’t fall asleep!

9780751563580

And I got like 220 pages into All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It’s going really good and I like it so far. It’s not amazing but I hope that will change for me once I get more into this. I plan on finishing it sometime this week!

all-the-light-we-cannot-see-9781476746586_hr

And then I started When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon and so far I like it! It’s really good and I can’t wait to get more into it. I’m like 50 pages in and I’m listening to the audiobook so I’ll be listening to it on the way to and from class! It’s really funny and makes me want to watch Bend it like Beckham for some reason! But anyways I’ll be done with this soon I hope!

caef-square-orig

And those are all the books that I’ve read this week! I have an ambitious TBR for this week and I also have a test to study for so I hope that I can get through my TBR while also focus on class. Wish me luck!!!

What books have you read this week? Did you read all you wanted to, or did you not get to a book you had hoped you would?? Let me know!

Tome Topple Progress

So week 1 for Tome Topple is done! And we are making out way to week 2. Or something like that! I know it’s ending soon though!

For those that don’t know, Tome Topple is a readathon created by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes where you focus on reading your big books!

My goal was to read The Final Empire and The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson! And I thought that I would update you all on how I’m doing since I haven’t done so yet! So so far I’ve read 220-ish pages of The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. Which is great for me since last time I made it like 59 pages then stopped so I’m glad I’m making more progress this time around.

I really want to finish it this week though so I have to push through those 400 pages this week. Let’s hope I can do this! *cries*

I had hoped to be on the second book by now but that’s obviously not going to happen.

My main goal is to finish this book though at least.

Weekly Reads Wrap Up

I’m so proud of myself! I read two books and some issues of Wicked and the Divine! I won’t get into that since they’re so short but I will get into the books I read. 

So I finished the last like 50 pages of Marked for Revenge Monday night! And I loved it! I gave it 5/5 and my review is posted if you want to see it! 


Next I read Secrets of a Summer Night by Lisa Kleypas! I just had an urge to read a historical fiction romance and this was certainly a romance! It was so good! I have it a 4/5! 


And lastly I finished I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios! I read it in 2 days and wow! It hit me hard! It’s probably one of my new all time favorite books! I loved it! Highly recommend it! Obviously I gave it 5/5 stars and my review will be posted sometime this week!


And that’s all the books I read! As I mentioned I did read some issues of the Wicked and the Divine graphic novel but I’m not really going to go into that here. But so far it’s just okay, not like super amazing or anything. 

Anyways, let me know in the comments what you recently read! I would love to know!
