What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

I really really love this and I’m so sorry it’s going up late. I had to be awake at 4am to drive almost 2 hours to a hospital to shadow for a potential job. I ended up staying there til about 3 because they kept scheduling cases and I wanted to see them! So of course not a whole lot of time or reading, because not gonna lie I came right home and took a nap since it took another 2 hours to drive home. But enough of my whining because I actually really want this job, let’s get to the books!

So I was beyond excited to read this book just because of all the hype I had been hearing about it. But then someone reserved it at my library the day before I had to turn it back in so it forced me in to a panicked reading mode. I really needed to get it done as fast as possible because someone out there is waiting for it. But of course, slow me I decided a couple cents for a couple extra days wasn’t that big of a deal, but at that point I was already like over reading it because I was so upset I couldn’t renew it. So I’m going to give myself some more time to think on this before I give it an official rating just because I feel it would be influenced by the fact I had to speed read it and not influenced by how I actually felt about what happened in the book.

So I saw this book on EmmaBooks’ channel, and of course I heard what it was about and she seemed so passionate about it I just had to pick it up, but of course I had to put it on reserve at my library before I could get it. I’ve been doing really well with my book buying ban, I’ve purchased 3 in the past couple weeks so I mean I haven’t not bought but I haven’t bought all that I want. But anywho back to this book, it’s about a girl with an eating disorder that is sent to a camp to try and overcome it, but she just plans her time until she can get home and go back to what she is used to doing with eating. But then she starts to get packages from some mysterious person and she has no idea who they’re from and it throws a wrench in her plans apparently. Super excited to read this!

So I really need to work this week on getting to the books that I was approved from NetGalley that I also checked out from the library. This may be my last full week where I can just sit around and do nothing but read all day, so I think my best bet is to work on those books. This book sounds pretty interesting, it’s about a girl who gets in trouble with the law so she spends her summer doing community service while also working on an Etsy sounding type of shop. Then she find out something else is going on in her family and people are keeping secrets so she’s going to do her best to figure out what exactly is going on and who all is involved. I’m glad this is next on my list because I’m hoping it’ll be a quick and fun read!

 

So that is it for this week, again so sorry this post is late but I would love to hear what you guys are reading in the comments. I have some good posts scheduled for this week already so I can’t wait for you to see them. Until then, bye!!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? {3}

Happy Monday! I know I know, Mondays are not really happy, but hey I gotta try to stay chipper some way. I really am loving this post, and as I write this I’m going to work on getting some reviews scheduled, which is actually happening because I know I say it but then it never happens. It’s really happening! So those will be getting scheduled for off days and I can’t wait to talk about them! But for now let’s get in to these books!

Woops, I completely forgot I needed to come back and talk about this book. To be honest this book was pretty hard to get in to. I’m not sure if it was because the main characters were boys or because they’re in situations I’ve never been in, it just made it kind of hard to connect and feel the need to read this. I did read this though because it is the Java and the Librarians Book Club pick of the month so they will be hosting a live show later this month and discussing the book together. Last month I wasn’t able to even finish their book so this month I really wanted to push myself so I wouldn’t feel like I was spoiling anything or that I just plain didn’t feel like I belonged at the live show.

This is my month of read all my library books. I recently received news that I most likely will be starting a new job here within the next few weeks so I have a LOT of books to read in the short amount of time I have left, but I am completely ok with that. So The Unlikelies was on the top of my list because I fell in love with this at the bookstore but was in the middle of my book buying ban so I ended up being a good girl and put it back, but that didn’t stop me from putting a hold on it at my library! It’s essentially about a group of teenage vigilantes that are brought together by some good deed that they’ve all done. This book is also beautiful naked so maybe once my ban is up I will end up buying a copy for my own shelf.

My library came through again guys! I have heard so much about this book and how everyone is just so in love with it so I put a hold on this book, and was actually second in line but I seriously got this in less than a week. Again, sticking with my library books that I need to get done, I know you all haven’t seen this latest haul so I’ll work on getting a post up for Thursday for Library Loans so you all can see what to expect out of me over the next couple weeks, but this one you’re getting to learn about now! I am just so excited to have this copy in my hands and I cannot wait until I’m able to start it, I also can’t believe how long it is but I am so beyond ready for this that you have no idea!

So let me know what books you’re currently reading, I love to hear from you guys, and tomorrow I have an awesome tag I’ll be bringing you so I hope to see you then!

Hey everyone, welcome to the blog! So I really think I like doing this as an update so I can show off what’s getting read and what’s going to be read and to keep me honest. I think that I will be keeping this around! This is of course hosted by Book Date for the awesome idea, I’m having an icky residual weekend, so let’s just go ahead and get in to the books.

I had such a good reading week last week. I got a bunch of books finished, but the most recent one I finished was Made You Up by Fancesca Zappia. GUYS, I cannot recommend her books enough after this last week. I read  both this and Eliza and Her Monsters and they were both probably the best books I’ll read all year, granted I still have a few months left,  I just know that they are going to hold up well. Granted I couldn’t connect with on the same level with Alex in this book as I did with Eliza, but the writing still made you able to feel like there was a connection there. I recommend this SO SO SO MUCH you have no idea.

So currently I am trying to get through all my library books (which, guys, I made another trip and got way way too many more books) and Looking for Group by Rory Harrison was at the top of the pile. I was really excited to get in to this because I knew it involved WoW (World of Warcraft, it’s a big MMO RPG on the computer)  and I’m a pretty big gaming nerd myself as well, plus I had heard a lot of hype about it when it first came out. I’m not too far in to it but I feel like it is getting right to the plot right away and there doesn’t seem to be must build up just yet. I of course need to keep reading to see what really is going on but I am a little slow at the time, hopefully this gets done soon!

Alright, let’s talk about how freaking excited I am to read this book. I remember looking at the synopsis online and just feeling like I really really needed to have it in my life, and I finally remembered to look for it at my library and they had it! So of course I checked it out, I may make another Library Loans because y’all are going to be seeing a lot of books that I say are from there but I haven’t talked about them on here yet. But seriously, if you aren’t sure what Love And First Sight is about give the title there a click and just read, PLUS it’s less than about 300 pages so I know I can devour it in no time. So once I get through my current book, this one is going to be picked up right away, RIGHT AWAY.

I hope you all are enjoying this, I’ll have some more fun posts this week because I’m going to work on them now while I’m feeling better. I know it’s an icky Monday but I hope you have a good week and I’ll see you all tomorrow for something new!!

So thanks to Jescamarie493 I found out about this awesome weekly post clearly called the title above. (Also, check out her blog because I adore her and she’s an amazing blogger)  I think it’s a cool way to keep people updated on what you’re currently reading and what you plan to read next too! So this is hosted by Book Date which is linked above on the nifty little picture. The point of this, I guess tag, is to post what you just finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next! I’m testing it out today but I do believe I am going to make it a permanent fixture here on the blog. So let’s get in to the books.

The last book that I read was Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I finished it just a few days ago. I have to say it got a lot of flack from people for doing what it basically tells you it’s going to do right off the bat. Remember it’s all just a game. Although I was confused for most of it, once it was the end of Caraval and things were explained it all made more sense to me and I think it’s not getting the proper rep from people. Just because it’s a hyped book and you don’t understand or like it doesn’t mean others won’t like it. Mini Rant over.

I am currently reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne which was recommended to me by Chelsea at Chelsea Dolling Reads, if you don’t subscribe to her on youtube you really should. She LOVES this book and I love her so I am taking her recommendation and giving it a try. So far I have to say it is very interesting. I really like the dynamic between the two main characters even though they do hate each other and I honestly can’t wait to see what all happens, I foresee some sexy times in my future with this book too! I will let you all know my rating once I am done of course!!

This is seriously such a long time coming. Next up I am going to be reading Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I pre-ordered this book and have had it since the beginning of June but thanks to the big ole reading slump I was in I wasn’t really feeling picking it up. Thankfully I am feeling better and can finally dedicate my time to one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I really can’t wait to get to this book and hopefully I will love it as much as I already do once I actually get to read it!

Alright guys, so that’s the current reading prospects and what I just finished. I really like this idea so hopefully I can keep up with reading to be able to post new things every week for y’all to read about! Later this week I’ll be sitting down and busting out some reviews so expect a lot of those to be coming your way soon! I’ll see y’all tomorrow.
