Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Will Never Read

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

So this week focuses on books you will never read and I have quite a few series that I quit because I simply grew bored of them or there were too many books! There are also series that I was told to read but didn’t want to and some of them will probably be an unpopular opinion.

Marked1) House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

There are just so many books in this series, it’s ridiculous. I’m proud of how far I got before I quit, I think I got up to Burned which is the seventh novel. The covers were absolutely gorgeous but I just grew so tired of this series because it was never-ending and I was starting to lose interest. There was so much drama in these books, it was hilarious. The story was quite good at times but I got so sick of how Zoey was portrayed. If you managed to reach the end of these books, you should seriously give yourself a pat on the back. I think my limit for a series is six books and then I’ve had enough. I think there are twelve altogether in House of Night and that’s just way, way, way too many books for me.

I am halfway through Demon Hunters: Trinity by Olivia Chase. It’s another ARC I found on NetGalley and so far I’m really enjoying it! It was recommended for fans of Cassandra Clare and that made me super curious to read it because I love Cassie’s books! This book is really interesting and I love all of the characters. I’m enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would! I have only read a little of Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi as I’m focusing more on finishing the first book. But this is also another book I’m thoroughly enjoying!

August Wrap Up!

I read four books and one short story this month, and I’m pretty happy with that! My reading for this month had a slow start but I soon caught up and got a decent amount read. No, I did not read all of the books on my TBR but I will read them this month, for sure. These are the amazing books I read this month:

Library of Souls1) Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

I absolutely adored this series but I was a little disappointed with Library of Souls and felt that it dragged a bit. I just thought it wasn’t as interesting as the previous books and it didn’t really get good until the end. The ending really made up for it though, it was absolutely insane! It was a nice ending to the series. If you like, you can read my full review here.

August Book Haul!

Hey guys! It’s that time of the month again where I share with you all the books I purchased this month! I’m so excited to read these books!

Nevernight1) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m going to be totally honest when I say that this was a cover buy. The cover, and pretty much the whole book, is gorgeous. I seriously can’t stop taking it off my shelf and stroking it and admiring it. I’m so excited to read it because it sounds amazing! I will definitely be posting a review on it when I get the chance to read it.

Synopsis:

Destined to destroy empires, Mia Corvere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.

Six years later, the child raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise she made on the day she lost everything.

But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and daemons at the heart of a murder cult.

The Red Church is no ordinary school, but Mia is no ordinary student.
The shadows love her.
And they drink her fear.

HOW AMAZING DOES THIS BOOK SOUND? I’m so ecstatic to have this!

I can’t really remember the first book that started my love for reading. I have always been a huge reader, I remember my dad taking me to the library and I just completely stocked up on Roald Dahl’s books! Other books I read were My Secret Unicorn before finding, and falling completely in love with, Jacqueline Wilson’s beautiful creations. I was like a moth drawn to a flame, I bought book after book she published.

5 Books That Made Me Cry

I rarely cry when I read books so I think when a book makes me cry, it becomes pretty special and definitely an unforgettable read. I thought I’d share with you some of those rare books and see if they also made you cry.

1) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I read this book in 2013 and it was so captivating. It had such a massive impact on me and to this day it’s still my favourite book. Even now I still constantly go back to this book and think of the story and the characters. I fell in love with all of the characters they were written so well and I tell everyone I possibly can to read this book. The ending was incredibly sad and I cried so much, it was such an emotional book.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year

So this is my first Top 5 Wednesday post, yay! I recently discovered this group on Goodreads and the link is here if you want to check that out.

There are so many books I want to read before the end of the year but I desperately want to read some books more than others. These five are probably my top ones:

red queen1) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Yep, still haven’t read that yet. I bought it when Glass Sword came out and that already feels like so long ago! I’ve heard so many mixed reviews about this book: some people loved it, some people hated it. I really want to read it even if I don’t like it because at least then I’ll finally know and it won’t be sitting on my TBR forever. I read the first couple chapters a while back and I got a really strong Hunger Games feel and I didn’t really like The Hunger Games so here’s hoping it’s not like that!
