It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Man, this weekend flew by. I got to do more reading this weekend than I thought I would be able to though, so I’m pretty happy. As you saw yesterday, I have a full week of reading ahead of me, but I figure I might as well update you anywho!

What did I read last?

I really like getting to see Megan and Owen as they were friends and see how they challenged each other to realize things about themselves. But holy hell is Megan so beyond childish. She abbreviates everything she does when she texts, flirts with any boy with legs that’s a jock, and basically throws tantrums with her Dad over things she really should know to discuss since she’s a senior in freaking high school. Overall I did enjoy the play aspect and like I said, Owen, so that made up for a lot of things that were frustrating. If you can look past some minor things and want something kind of fluffy with some real world problems, I’d recommend this one for you.

What am I currently reading?

36127456I started this one before I went to bed last night and made it about 5 chapters in. So far it’s got a decent start, and I know I pretty much love anything Kasie West since she’s an autobuy author for me. This is about a girl named Kate who lives on a lake and helps her parents run a marina. It’s the beginning of a new school year where she has to go to the next town over to go to school. There she’s been talked in to taking a podcast class by her best friend Alana. Apparently she’s going to be the host and going to start giving advice to other students as they call in to the show but I haven’t gotten to that part yet. I honestly can probably finish it today to be honest, since I found Hoopla has the audiobook already so I checked it out to listen on my drive back to my place from my parents this afternoon.

This one I also started yesterday, and I’ll read it story by story, because that’s just kind of how I work through anthologies. I’ve only finished the first one, and I have to say so far I’m pretty happy that this is just a library book because I first of all don’t like love triangles as it is, they annoy me, as well as being kind of bored during the entire first story. I’m starting to think that I just may not be a person made for anthologies, because I just sometimes don’t get anything from them. But then other times I do get stuff from the stories, so I don’t know. I guess I just need to keep trying until I really figure out what I should read genre wise when it comes to anthologies.

What do I plan to read next?

So, this isn’t even on my TBR for this week. But I’m 98% sure my library book is over due and I need to get it back to the library this weekend to not make my library even more angry at me. I do originally have an ARC of this on my kindle but I’m still iffy about ARCs on there because sometimes the formatting comes across really weird and makes it hard to read. So since this one is out and I have the library version I am going to work on reading this one, and hopefully quickly so I can work on reading more of my Cramathon TBR this week. This has a lot of gaming background and is the main point of view of a girl that does programming for the games, so it’s right up my alley!

What are you guys reading? Let me know below and I hope to see you tomorrow!

It’s Monday, What are you reading?

Hello Hello Hello! Sorry for being missing this weekend, but I spent some much needed time at my parents house this past weekend and had some family time. But of course I can’t go without reading so I have some awesome updates for you all. I’ll have my TBR for June up soon for you too but for now, let’s talk about what I’m reading/

What did you read last?

38607066

I literally finished this book on June 1st, one day too late to count it towards the challenge I had it for in Read-A-Thin. But I am glad that I finally read it since it’s one of my Owlcrate books that I’ve had for awhile that I hadn’t read yet. There has been so much hype around this book and I guess I can understand why. I really didn’t know what was going on though for about 15-20% of this book, but it was still pretty interesting in itself. I didn’t see the ending coming, and I didn’t expect things to happen that did happen, but it was a super interesting story and I did enjoy reading it. Though, I’m not too sure how Melissa Albert is planning to get another book from this, because it’s a pretty solid ending.

Since I had such a heart wrenchingly good read with This Is Where is Ends about a school shooting, why not read a book about a school bombing? These are all such tear jerkers, but I am liking them and getting to see this perspective of things. In this book we’re following, I want to say 6, different characters. In the beginning I was having some trouble keeping them all apart, but I think I have them all separated now and I’m really interested to see where this goes. They’re all trapped in this school just before the school year starts when bombs start going off in the school. Then they find out that one of the people in the school could possibly be the bomber. I have an idea, but I don’t know just yet who it could be, so I’m interested to see how this all wraps up.

What do you plan on reading next?

AlwaysNever_BOM_4p.indd

This is going to be one of the books on my June TBR this month so you get a bit of a sneak peek. I’ve been so excited for this book since I was hearing the hype around Booktube for it, and I have started just a few pages of it. This month I tried to stick with a lot of Contemporary books even though they definitely not all are, but this book should be right up my alley. Everyone that Megan has ever been in a relationship has ended up falling in love, with someone else. So during her Senior year of high school while trying to add some padding to her college application, she’s cast as Juliet in the school play where she starts to notice a new boy, Owen, and of course things go from there!

So that is my current reading status on everything. I have a SUPER ambitious TBR this month, but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t. I’ll have that up soon, let me know how your reading is going in the comments. I’ll see you all soon!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hey Everyone! Happy Monday, I hope if you’re getting a three day weekend you’re enjoying your last day off. I’ve been cramming a lot of books in here lately so I have a lot of stuff to talk about. Let’s get in to the books!

What did I read last?

30238172

This was a book that I had checked out from the library on a whim because the title and the cover were really cute to me. Turns out it was a 2018 release and was pretty much brand spanking new. This was sooooooo cute. It follows our main girl Iris is the grand daughter of M E Thorne who wrote the female equivalent of Lord of The Rings, and now Elementia is going to be turned in to a movie. So since her little brother is so in to the stories she acts as babysitter and is flown to Ireland to spend an entire week on set getting to see the movie be created. But while there she has to overcome a lot of things. She also might possibly be meeting her celebrity crush who just so happens to be playing in the movie. I would highly recommend this one!

What am I reading now?

34848190

I’m going to go with this one because this is the last book that I was physically reading, even though I have a whole bunch of stuff started right now. I honestly haven’t gotten that far in to it either so I’m not sure I can even say too much about it at this point. This book has two points of view. Ammy is on her way to her father’s for what is appearing to be his wedding to a much younger woman. Then we’re also following Noah who is on his way to win back his ex-girlfriend. Like I said before I’m not too far in to this but I’ve heard really good things about this book and I would like to hopefully finish it before the end of the month!

What do I plan to read next?

AlwaysNever_BOM_4p.indd

This is kind of cheating because I’ve also started this one as well but I haven’t gotten to far in to it and honestly with the mood I’ve been in I just want all the light hearted contemporaries. So honestly if you know some good ones let ya girl know. Anyway, this book is pretty cute and I have high hopes for it as well. We follow Megan who every boy she’s ever dated before has ended up falling in love, with someone other than her. So she’s currently looking for a new boyfriend and decides to try out for the school play because she needs the credit to put on her application for college, and she’s cast as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet and is cast across from her ex boyfriend who just so happens to be dating her best friend. I cannot wait to see where this goes.

So that’s what I’m reading, sorry I’m so late with the post today but I’m working everything out for the rest of the week and I can’t wait for you guys to see them all. Let me know what you’re reading in the comments!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hello everyone, welcome to the blog. It’s that time of week again, the icky beginning of the week. I hope you all had an amazing weekend and enjoyed watching the Royal Wedding! I wasn’t dedicated enough to get up that early, but I did watch some coverage of it later in the day. I also got a ton of reading done last week, but needless to say not very much of it was for Read-A-Thin, so hopefully this week I’ll be knocking a bunch of those books out! But for now, let’s get in to what I’m reading.

I think slow and steady is going to win the race on this one. This book is absolutely massive but I have reached over the half way mark in it so far. I’m really enjoying the story, so I’m glad all the story is living up to all the hype that it’s had so far. The world is so rich in magic and fantasy when it comes to the people and the animals, but it’s very easy to understand and keep track of things. I originally thought this was only done in two perspectives, but so far we’ve gotten three and I’m really enjoying it. I’m curious how things are going to go and how everyone is going to work towards their goals. I don’t want to say too much more and give away what’s happening and do any spoiling. This is for sure a must read book!

What do you plan to read next?

34499221

While this is not a Read-A-Thin book, this is a Scallywagathon book, so I know I will be working on it this week. All I know is that this is about a Siren who hunts Prince’s to take their hearts. Then one day her mother curses her to have legs and be among the people, and she ends up having to team up with a prince. I’m not really sure what else happens past that, but I do know I am super excited to get to it because I’ve had it for some time now and it’s another book that’s been super hyped up by people as well! I also am really happy with how much I’ve been working to go outside my comfort zone with books and this one is definitely one of those books!

 

So that’s how most of my reading is going. Let me know how you’re doing below!

Hello lovely readers. Another week, another Monday. I hope you all had a nice weekend break. I know I did. As well as a good Mother’s Day for all the mothers out there! I had a lovely day with my Mom and Grandma. I did a lot of reading last week. I participated in the Buzzword Readathon but read a lot of books that didn’t fit, so let’s go ahead and get in to what plans I have for this week!

I started this before Buzzwordathon started so I need to finish this soon. So far it’s been a good story and is super interesting. These are the kinds of books I like written in poems. Not abstract ones like a certain famous one with a black cover and 3 word title. This is a book for Read-a-thin so I’m super hoping that I get it done today, since it’s all done in poetry. So far I just know what the jacket says about this book because I didn’t get that far in to the story. That’s also something about poetry stories. You can get a good way through page wise but you’re not that far in story wise. We’ll have to see how the rest of it goes!

What do you plan to read next?

34728667

So my library loan for the audiobook for this came through just a few days ago. I know that a I have about two weeks on this loan, but I think I just need to suck it up and start this one. It’s a massive book and it’s something that I don’t normally read, but since I’ve heard so many good things about it as well, I need to read this. This is going to be hopefully one that will hook me and change how I view other fantasy novels. It really will help me continue to branch out in what I normally read, so I’m excited to see what I think about this when I’m done.

What has your reading been like? I’d love to hear about it. See you tomorrow!

Ahhh another Monday, but for me this is day 3 of my weekend! I am so in love with being on my official work schedule that I am just going nuts reading all the books. I have so much stuff to get to this month and having an extra day off a week helps me get to books so much easier. So I’m trying to finish a lot of my currently reading as well as working on reading books on my TBR and of course the new readathon starts this week as well. Alright, let’s go ahead and get to the books!

What did you read last?

I swear, sometimes I am so derpy. I write these in advance and then forget to go back in and write about what I read last. So I’m sorry if you are having to come back to see what I read last this past week. I picked up and finished Royals by Rachel Hawkins in about 2 days, if even that. This book was so light hearted and cute, and now I am in such the perfect mood to be watching this Royal Wedding we’re going to get to see. But this book was seriously so much fun to get to see another side of Royals and see what other things people who are not royal may be going through while marrying someone who is royal. Easy and fast, I would pick this book up if you’re looking for a cute summer read!

This book is currently a Buddy Read of mine with Sydney at SydneyShelves and I am absolutely in love with it so far. We should be finishing it today according to our page break down and I am dying to know what is going to happen. This book is about a 17 year old girl who, due to a virus, is living with an artificial heart and on borrowed time until she can receive a heart transplant. Then one day, a heart becomes available for her and she gets a new chance on life. That is, until she learns the new heart beating in her chest is the heart of a boy from her school who just so happens to be the twin of a boy she’s had a crush on for years, and also everyone believes he committed suicide. But the dreams she’s having say otherwise.

What do you plan to read next?

26893819

Since Buzzword Readathon starts today I of course plan to pick up one of my planned reads. This is the one that I am the most interested in out of the four (that I currently own anyway since Undead Girlgang comes out tomorrow) so I plan to not only pick this book up but to also read the entire thing today. This is about a girl who makes a new friend and ends up getting wrapped up in the cult life of Charles Manson. I’m interested to see how much of this is true and how much is made up to make the story work. Although I don’t know too much about the cult I do know bout the killings, so I’m super interested to get to this one and start reading it.

Another Monday, Another week. This year just seems to be flying by, considering this is the last week of April. I can’t believe we’re so far in to 2018 already. So I’ve been trying to come back out of my slump over the weekend and I did actually get some reading done. Let’s talk about the books!

What did I read last?

So I finally started my reread of the House of Night series. I read probably about the first 6 books of this 12 book series back when I was still in College, and I decided recently that I want to finish the whole series. Since it was so long ago I of course had to start from the beginning, and thankfully my hold for the audiobook for this came in over the weekend. I’m surprised that I remembered as much of this story as I did, but it was all really familiar as I was going through it. The thing is though this first book is all my memories of this series, so I don’t remember anything past it! I’ll be picking up the second one soon to try and refresh my memory of what happened next and to continue my read of this series.

What am I currently reading?

24529123

I think I picked this book up over a year ago honestly. I had just come back to the book community and was hearing so much about it so of course in true me fashion I spent money on a book and then just shelved it for quiet some time. But over the weekend I was feeling such in a rut that even the cute stories weren’t really making me interested in reading. So I started this one, and I’m about halfway through it now. I’m honestly surprised that I set it down because it’s such an edge of your seat kind of story, but it’s making my heart hurt really bad to read as well. All of these poor students that we’re following have some sort of tie to the shooter and he’s just absolutely crazy. I’ll definitely finish this soon!

What do I plan to read next?

24909347

So I think I’m finally going to suck it up and finish this book. I’m still really not ready to have an end to this series, but at the same time I’m really ready to read it from the beginning again. I am already some way in to it, and I want to finish it before the end of the month. So since this is the last week I the month I figure I better pick it back up. I don’t want to say too much about this book since this is the third and final book in a series, but if you haven’t tried this series out yet I highly, highly, highly, recommend it. Even though it’s considered Sci-Fi it’s super fun, fast paced, and a great read that I have loved and am so sad to have to say goodbye to everyone that I’ve met along the way through these books.

So that is my goals for the week, and to maybe squeeze a few more reads in, because surprisingly I have barely read anything this month, and I feel kind of bad, but I’ve been in such a slump. Hopefully next month goes better since I Read-A-Thin happening. Let me know what you’re reading, and I’ll see you guys soon!

Well, sorry for the super late post tonight. I was hoping to have Read-a-Thin Round 4 Announcement to share with you guys but apparently my iMovie doesn’t want to work with my tonight and I can’t upload to Youtube. So Instead of leaving you postless….yes I just made that word up, I’m sneaking in a quick Monday post!

What did I read last?

35297380

I am completely straying from my TBR for the rest of the month, because I am feeling very slumpy coming on and I want to combat that as much as possible. So the last book I read I finished yesterday and the was American Panda. This is about a Chinese-American teenager who is having to deal with trying to fit in with social norms as well as trying to fit the mold of what her parents have in mind for her as well as their traditions. This was very much a light fluffy novel that I was able to finish in just a couple days. It does touch on some serious things like disownment and anxiety as well as OCD. I thought it did a really great job, although I am just white so I can’t fully speak for everyone, but it was a fun read and I’m glad I was finally able to get to it!

What am I currently reading?

That is the question huh. I honestly have no idea what I am in the mood for right now so I do not have anything picked up at the moment. I did make a trip to the library to return some things and pick up some holds so hopefully something will call to me over the next couple days.

What do I plan to read next?

30223025

This was one of my holds at the library, and I am pretty excited to read it when I am finally in the mood. This is reimagining of the civil war, involving Zombies. So the main character is born with colored skin, and since that is the case she is sent to a combat school to learn essentially how to kill zombies. Basically the main girl has no interest in what she is learning and just wants to return to her home state to be with her family. Then families around the area that her school is start to go missing, and she somehow becomes entangled in the entire mess. I have heard nothing but great things, even the librarian that checked me out said she just finished and loved it, so I have high hopes for this ones!

 

Again, sorry for such a late post, hopefully I can get Youtube to work for me and I can tell you guys all about Read-A-Thin in May. Let me know what you’re reading in the comments, and Happy Monday!!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Yet another Monday, my most dreaded day of the week yet it seems to come so quickly. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend though, I never feel like I get everything done that I need to but that is life. So this week my reading is going to be a bit more tame but I’m still working my way through a lot of things, so let’s just get in to the books!

What did I finish last?

28421168

I did it guys! I finally started and finished Renegades. Where have I been is basically my final thoughts. This is the first book I’ve finished by Marissa Meyer and now I know I will need to pick up the Lunar Chronicles before Archenemies comes out later this year. The book was so great and the flow of the story was done so well. There were lots of little swift plot twists but you could follow so quickly. I do think I am going to be in limbo until the next book comes out because I am just left with so many darn questions. Like I knew the ending was going to happen, and I knew the secret that was revealed at the end was also going to happen, but now to see what’s actually going to follow.

What are you currently reading?

Again, this week I have more than one book going. One is a Buddy Read that will be finished later today, and the other is one I just really wanted to read so I picked it up.

35297394 35297469

What am I going to read next?

16429619

So the next book to be started on my list is one of my TBR jar picks. Thankfully for me I was able to check the audiobook out from the library, because honestly, that’s how Ido most of my reading lately. This one seems to be the shortest of the three of the trilogy, and honestly now I’m super apprehensive about actually starting it. People have been talking recently how the series doesn’t end well and how most of the second and third books are written purely because she wasn’t sure how to finish the series. So I am going in to this book with not the greatest of expectations, but I am going to finally jump on the train and read it like the rest of the darn book community already has!

 

So those are my plans for the week. What do you think about that upcoming book? If you have any feels on it let me know in the comments, or just let me know what you plan to read! See y’all soon!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Another Monday, Another Week. Today we’re having a bit of a late post, because I figure a late post is better than no post, right! So this week is going to be a little crazy for me because I am currently trying to finish so many books because apparently all of my library holds decided to come in at the same time. So this week’s post will be a little different, but let’s get in to the books!

What did I read last?

35297272

So this is the last book that I finished and I finished it over the weekend. This is a new 2018 release and I went out on release day to pick it up, so I am so happy that I did because I was very much anticipating this book, and I was not disappointed with it. This book follows Penny and Sam who both live in Texas and have their own problems going on in their life and happen to have a somewhat Meet Cute where they exchange numbers to become each other’s “Emergency Contact” We then follow as they get to know each other and their relationship changes and man did I love every moment of this and so totally connected with them even though I’m not a boy, I still felt connected to Sam. I would HIGHLY recommend picking this up if you haven’t picked it up or adding it to your TBR if it hasn’t been on your radar.

What are you Currently Reading?

So I’m going to be honest, I have way too many books going at one time right now, BUT I am going to show you the main three that I’m reading and NOT talk about them just yet.

27426044 28421168 28954189

What do I plan to read next?

So I actually have my whole month of reading planned out to a T because of all of my audiobooks coming in, so I actually know what I want to read next!

32075671
Yes, yes. I know. I’m way behind on reading this but at least I’m going to make an attempt now. This one I did check the audiobook out from the library so I can get through the physical book. It’s been one I’ve been interested in reading for awhile but also very hesitant about reading as well. So later this week I plan to pick this up and get all the way through it for once. I think maybe then I’ll check out some of the casting and picks for the movie since I’ve tried to stay fairly clear of that just in case there may be any spoilers, but I’m sure I have a good idea of how this book is going to turn out.

So that’s it for my Monday, let me know how your reading is going in the comments, I always love to hear even if I’m super slow at replying to them. Hopefully I will see you all tomorrow with a new post!
