April Wrap Up!

GUYS! I actually read EVERY SINGLE book on my TBR for this month! That is amazing for me! If you’ve read some of my TBR and Wrap Up posts in the past then you will know that I am terrible for sticking to my TBR. I will probably read one and then just proceed to read whatever I feel like, it’s so bad! But this month I actually stuck to it! Yay! Pat on the back for me! Here’s what I read this month:

assassins-creed1) Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance by Oliver Bowden 

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this and if I’d enjoy it but I was pleasantly surprised because I loved it! Even though it’s based on the game I still really enjoyed it and found it quite interesting! I have bought the second book and cannot wait to continue with this series!

March Wrap Up!

Hey guys! This month has gone by crazy fast, I’m so shocked that it’s April already! This month has been a blast for me and I’ve had a lot of fun! I’ve been on a couple trips with my family and I really enjoyed them! I’m kind of surprised with what I’ve read this month because I thought I’d read more than that but I guess not because I can’t think of any other books! Hopefully next month I can read more because whilst this isn’t a bad number, I’d like to read a couple more next month.

Follow Me Down1) Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith

This was very kindly sent to me by Titan Books for review and it was one of the best crime thrillers I’ve read! I really loved it because it constantly had me guessing what was going to happen and every time I was blown away by an insane plot twist! I was left gobsmacked by the ending! Highly recommend this book and my full review will be up on Monday if you want to check that out!

February Wrap Up!

I am pretty pleased with the books I managed to read this month! Although I read more at the start of the month than I did at the end!

Nevernight1) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m still unsure of whether or not I will read the second book in this series! I thought it was a standalone and I’m a little disappointed that it’s not because it was a good story but I don’t feel like I can commit to a series? Like the start of the book was so boring and confusing but then it got so damn good and I really enjoyed the second half! Maybe if the cover is as gorgeous as this one I’ll get it because I can’t resist having a pretty cover on my shelf, it’s so bad.

January Wrap Up!

Well this month was absolutely terrible when it came to reading! I read two books… Yep. Two freaking books. And they were awful! I did not enjoy them!

the-chemist1) The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

I just… I don’t even know where to start with this book. If you like you can read my review here but it does contain spoilers. Honestly it was one of the worst books I have ever read and I tried to write a spoiler free review but I just couldn’t. I was so angry when I was reading it and I just had to have a massive rant and take all of my anger out on my keyboard. I hated this book with a passion and I feel like Stephenie stabbed me in the back. She had the chance to write such an amazing book but instead she completely messed it up and her crime thriller became an eye-rolling romance. I would not recommend this awful book.

December Wrap Up!

How is it 2017 tomorrow? How!? I don’t understand how we are here already! Although I am glad because 2016 was such an awful year and I just want to forget about it. December was a slightly better month and it has made the year end nicely so hopefully January will be an awesome start to the new year!

I managed to read three books this month and I am pretty happy with that! I, unfortunately, didn’t manage to reach my goal of fifty books but I did read forty and you know what? I am happy with that! Forty books is pretty good for me and I think I will just set another target of fifty books in 2017 and see how I do. Here are the books I read this month:

tales-from-the-shadowhunter-academy1) Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman

I really liked this book but the ending was pretty disappointing and I don’t understand why Cassie chose that ending… Apart from that, it was really enjoyable and better than The Bane Chronicles. The chapters were more engaging and although some of them dragged, I enjoyed the majority of them.

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-3-46-51-pm

I didn’t read a lot this month but nonetheless I am happy with what I’ve read! I read two books which have both been quite surprising reads! Not something I’d normally read but very enjoyable and highly recommended books! The other book I read was a book of illustrations and another one I would wholeheartedly recommend for fans of Cassandra Clare!

the-martian1) The Martian by Andy Weir 

I received this as a Secret Santa present last year and I was very hesitant to read it because I was unsure if I’d like it or not but it was actually a really fun and enjoyable read! The main character finds himself stranded on Mars and with no way to communicate with Earth. There are various ways for him to die and even if he manages to survive, he will still eventually run out of food and starve to death. He has to find ways to survive using quick thinking and a lot of experimenting with ideas. Surprisingly, he has quite a positive outlook on the situation and he is quite a fun, witty and sarcastic character at times. I always worried I wouldn’t understand a lot of what was happening but it’s actually all explained really well and it’s easy to follow the story. I would definitely recommend this and I’m really glad I did read it in the end.

October Wrap Up & Book Haul!

Hey guys! I’m actually combining my wrap up and my book haul posts because this month has been such an awful reading month! I thought it was bad that I only read three books last month but this month I only read one. One freaking book! I have been in such a horrible slump that I only recently got out of and I was so annoyed because I wanted to read but I just couldn’t. I am really hoping I will be back to reading five books in November! It’s annoying because my goal is to read fifty books this year and so far I have read thirty four so I really could have done with reading another five books this month. I’m not sure if I will make fifty but I’m going to damn well try!

Wrap Up:

The Couple Next DoorThe Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

This book really helped me get out of my slump because it was such an easy read! It’s about a couple who leaves their six month daughter home alone while they go to a party next door. They agree to check on her every half an hour but when they check on her in the early hours of the morning, she is gone from her cot. She has been taken and they are left with no choice but to call the police and who knows what secrets they will uncover…

It was very interesting and full of so many exciting twists and turns. At first I thought it revealed the plot really early but it turns out there were more secrets to uncover and I honestly couldn’t put this book down. The ending was left on such a horrible cliffhanger though and I really hope there is a second book because I don’t think I can live with that cliffhanger in my life, I need answers. 

I would highly recommend this book if you are into crime thrillers and mysteries.
