Most Anticipated 2019 Releases!

Hey guys! I feel like 2019 is going to be the year for YA books because there’s so many great ones coming out! These are only the ones I’m excited about so far but I’m pretty certain I’ll find some more intriguing ones throughout 2019.

Chains of Gold, The Red Scrolls of Magic & Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare

Cassie is releasing THREE books this year which is insane and they all sound amazing! I can’t decide which I am most excited for because I love all of the characters so much and I’m so glad we get to see even more of them! I really loved The Infernal Devices so I have high hopes for Chain of Gold! Also all of the covers look so pretty!

November 2018 Book Haul!

Hey guys! November has flown by and I am so ready for Christmas but before I get in the Christmas spirit, I have to write my wrap up posts! Sad for you but good for me, this is going to be a really quick post as I actually only purchased two (three if you count the same book purchased twice!) books this month and I was sent one for review! I think some of you will be pleased with one of my choices as a lot of people have been telling me to read it!

Also I’m sorry again for my sporadic posting, I’ve not really had a lot of time this month to blog but I’m hoping in December I’ll be feeling a little better and more motivated! So here’s the very small amount of books I purchased/received in November:

A Map of Days1) A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs:

First up, I finally got my hands on, not one, but two copies of A Map of Days and I also got them signed as I went to one of Ransom Riggs’ UK tour events! I wrote a post about it if you want to check it out but here is a spoiler, it was awesome and so much fun! It’s been years since I read Library of Souls and I’m a little hazy on the ending so maybe I will re-read the last few chapters to remind myself of what happened. I do remember the last 100 or so pages was absolutely insane though! I’m really excited to dive back into this world and I cannot wait to see how the peculiars manage in America! I’ve actually missed these characters and the peculiar photographs!

July Book Haul!

Hey guys! I’ve had another successful month of buying hardly any books! I bought two books with my own money and then I received four for review (already read two of them). I’ve managed to read 8 books this month so I feel like I actually have a chance at getting my TBR down slowly, slowly. I’m not exactly sure what my TBR number is but it’s pretty high. I’ll have to do another count again! Anyway, here’s all the books I purchased/received this month:

You Were Gone by Tim Weaver: I honestly just bought this because the hardback was cheap and it seemed like a good deal! I need to read the rest of the books in the series first before I can read this one though. I might take some on holiday with me in September because I do really want to read them! If you haven’t heard of this series, it’s about a private investigator who finds missing people. Very good crime thrillers in my opinion. I think this is the 9th book? So you have to invest yourself in this series which I haven’t been able to do yet!

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: I have no clue what this is about and just bought it because I like Jay Kristoff’s writing. I definitely want to read it though because just from looking at that insane cover, it seems like it will be really awesome! It has some amazing reviews too from what I can see on Goodreads. Just looking at the cover it looks very futuristic!

Books I’d Save in a Fire!

Hey guys! This is an old Top 5 Wednesday topic that I found when I was scrolling through past topics and it just looked like a really awesome post to do. Of course I hope that my house never sets on fire but you guys know what books I’ll be saving! Since this isn’t actually a Top 5 Wednesday post, there will be more than five books!

1) Cassandra Clare books

Obviously I have to save these books! Like if I could I would save all my Cassandra Clare books but I can’t so I am saving these! I have my reasons for saving these books and from the picture you can clearly see why I’d want to save them. Two of them are special editions and two of them are also signed. The tenth anniversary edition also has all these gorgeous and colourful illustrations, it’s such a beautiful book! Another reason for saving them is that I spent a fortune on them and since they are signed, I am not watching them burn in a fire! I doubt I’d be able to buy the editions of Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows as they all sold out.

Books I Wish I Read in 2017

Hey guys! Here is the third post in my 2017 wrap up and I’ll be talking about books I wish I read in 2017! I know that it’s not the end of 2017 yet but there’s no way I’ll be reading these books by the end of next week. I’m currently reading some other books and I’ll be finishing them off hopefully! By the way, I was really tired when I was writing this and it was the fourth post I’d written, so if I start rambling I’m sorry! Hope you enjoy!

Shadowblack1) Shadowblack by Sebastian De Castell

I really loved Spellslinger and was so excited for this book. I was even more excited when I realised it was coming out in the same freaking year as Spellslinger! They weren’t making us wait a year for the sequel! But even though I bought it months ago, still haven’t read it yet. Sigh. I’ll hopefully pick it up in January because I really love Kellen and need to see what he’s up to in the second book! The first book was amazing, amazing, amazing. Such a jaw dropping plot twist and cliffhanger so I need to see Kellen again to find out whats happened!

WWW Wednesday!

Hey guys! I’ve been so busy this week with work that I haven’t really had as much time to dedicate to my blog as I’d have liked. With that being said, I hope you don’t mind me doing a WWW Wednesday post today just because it’s quick and easy to do! I also have an update post coming for you on Friday because there might be a slight change to my blogging schedule next month. I’ll explain why in that post but for now lets get into today’s post!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

The Cost of Living by Rachel Ward: This was kindly sent to me by the publisher for review and I’m also taking part in a blog tour for it! I’m in a mad dash to finish it this week because the blog tour takes place when I’m on holiday. I want to have my review written up and scheduled to post so even if I only have a little free time I’m shoving my nose in this book! It’s really good so far but it’s very slow and not a lot is happening. I like the characters and I like that they work in a supermarket. It’s so normal and really relatable, especially if you work in retail.

Welcome to the Slipstream by Natalka Burian: Admittedly, I’m not very far in this book yet but what I have read is quite good. I’m liking it so far and hoping to give it my full attention when I finish The Cost of Living! This was also sent to me for review and it focuses on mental illness which was what drew me to it. I have only read a few books about this but I loved them both so hopefully I love this one too!

September TBR!

Hey guys! This month is going to be absolutely fantastic for me! I’m going on holiday for two weeks during the middle of the month so I have been planning what books to take with me. I’m taking a couple physical copies and the rest will be on my Kindle because it will just be easier to carry them around since we will be travelling a lot. The physical copies I am taking I have been waiting months for them to come out. They are two of my most anticipated releases so of course I have to take them on holiday! So without further ado, lets get into it!

Wonder Woman1) Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I can’t believe this book is finally here! Like many others I pre-ordered it months ago and have been eagerly awaiting its release! I ordered the paperback copy and the signed limited edition hardback! The hardback is a very simple design but it’s absolutely beautiful! I really hope they do the limited editions for the rest of the DC Icons books because that would be amazing! I haven’t read any of Leigh’s books but I do own her Six of Crows duology. I’m so excited to finally see what her writing is like and find out why she is such a popular author.
