WWW Wednesday – January 2021

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week and your reading for 2021 is off to a good start. I have only read three books so far and I’m hoping a little reading update will spur me on as I’ve been reading so slowly this month. Plus, I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday post in a while and it’s always nice to bring it back every now and again. So without further ado, here’s my reading update for January:

Currently reading: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I have had this series sitting on my shelf for so long and since there’s a new book coming out (A Court of Silver Flames), I thought I should really attempt to read it again. I remember when I first read A Court of Thorns and Roses I absolutely adored it and that hasn’t changed in the slightest. Admittedly, I was hesitant going into it but honestly I had nothing to worry about. The plot is great, the characters are great and I’m just having a great time with it overall. I don’t think I need to explain what this book is about; it’s an immensely popular series and literally everyone loves it.

Highest Rated Books On My TBR

Hey guys! I feel like last year even though I said I wanted to tackle my TBR, I mostly just ended up ignoring it but this year I want that to be different. I think if I actually look at the books that are on there, it might actually spur me on to read some of them! So today I am looking at the top ten highest rating books that are currently on my TBR, according to Goodreads. Let’s get into it!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (Rating 4.66): I actually forgot this was on my TBR I thought I’d removed it, whoops. I’m not even surprised that it’s the highest rated book because the amount of people I’ve seen and heard people raving about this book is insane. Unfortunately I didn’t feel the same and DNF’ed it when I was about halfway through. I do want to give it another try but I’m struggling to motivate myself to pick it up again.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Rating 4.61): This book is just taunting me now. I will admit though that I am surprised that it’s the second highest rated book. I know Leigh Bardugo is an amazing author but I thought it’d be a bit lower down on my list. I want to read this before I read King of Scars so trust me when I say I will read this!

Popular YA Books I Dislike!

Hey guys! I have been really wanting to do this post for a while and I finally got around to it! I hope you enjoy and please do not be offended by any of my choices! It’s just my personal opinion and these are really popular books, so even though I don’t like them, a lot of other people do!

thg1) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I remember my friend recommended this trilogy to me because she really liked it and thought it was something I’d like too. Sadly I really didn’t like this book. I thought the first book was incredibly boring and I didn’t like any of the characters. They didn’t really stand out to me and over the course of the three books they just got so irritating! Katniss was so bad in the last book she just cried all the time and it really annoyed me. I really wanted Katniss and Gale to end up together because I just couldn’t see what was so great about Peeta. I don’t think the ending of the trilogy was that great and I just can’t see why everyone loved these books so much. The films were also terrible.

Least Favourite Books of 2016

Hey guys! I thought this would be a really interesting post to do where I look back on all the books I’ve read this year and focus on the ones I really didn’t enjoy and actually found to be quite disappointing! I am in no way saying they are awful books because lots of people really liked them but sadly this wasn’t the case for me!

Rebel of the Sands1) Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

This book was just full of so many spelling mistakes and punctuation errors it was like no one had even bothered to edit this and just published a first draft. It might seem harsh but I really wasn’t impressed with all the mistakes I was noticing. The characters really didn’t stand out for me either and I found it hard to like the main character. The story was alright but not the best it didn’t really intrigue me or make me want to continue the book. I did finish it eventually but I am definitely not reading the second book anytime soon.

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!

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!

June Wrap Up!

Here are the books I managed to read this month:

Hunger1) Hunger by Michael Grant

This book was so much better than the first book. Gone was pretty good but it was mainly just setting the world up and I felt like the author just dived right in with Hunger! So much happened and I was on the edge of my seat gripping the book tightly from excitement. I cannot wait to read the third book it looks like it’s going to be just as good if not better than this one!
