Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag

Hey guys! I am in the middle of some books right now. So, as a result of not having I a book review to post anytime in the near future, I decided to do a book tag! I found this book tag by Eden @Thrice Read, and let’s be honest they find the best book tags and I love seeing theirs and actually doing some of them. So without further ado here are my answers!

1. Best Book You’ve Read So Far.

Hmm…this is a hard one. Looking back through my lists I only gave three 5 star ratings this year! So then I’ll have to say Caraval by Stephanie Garber, Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer, and Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

2. Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far

I’ve actually only read one sequel so far this year, and I wasn’t impressed with it as I only gave it 2 stars. Sooo I guess since that was the only book I read it’ll have to do. icekissed

3.New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To?

There are so many new releases that I want to get my hands on!! Some of them include Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab and Once and for All by Sarah Dessen.

4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2017

This definitely goes to Leigh Bardugo and her new book Wonder Woman: Warbringer!

5. Biggest Disappointment?

Hm…I would probably have to say Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer. I wasn’t very impressed with the art and the writing wasn’t the same caliber as with the series.

wiresandnerve

6. Biggest Surprise?

I normally don’t read bibliographies, but I found myself really enjoying Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham.

7. Favourite New Author

She isn’t new to the scene, but I discovered her for the first time this year! So my new favorite author is Susan Dennard! I absolutely loved Truthwitch and I can’t wait to read more books by her!

truthwitch

8. Newest Fictional Crush

Hm…this is a hard one. I don’t think I have one.

9. Newest Favourite Character

I really liked Scarlett Dragna from Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

caraval

10. Book That Made You Cry

There has been a few books that made me cry this year, but the one that made me cry the most was Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. If you haven’t read this book yet, I definitely suggest you pick it up!

letterstothelost

11. Book That Made You Happy

Hm…I don’t know if a book has ever left me feeling happy, but excited to read it? Sure. I guess if I had to choose one, I would choose Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter. The book as a whole didn’t make me happy, considering that it was a little confusing and kind of out there, but the way that it ended had a happy ending. Sooo…there’s that, I guess that counts.

12. Favourite Book To Movie Adaptation You Saw This Year

I’ve only seen Before I Fall, but I haven’t had a chance to read the book yet.

beforeifall

13. Favourite Review You’ve Written This Year

I would probably say…my favorite review so far this year was for Truthwitch.

14. Most Beautiful Book You Bought So Far This Year?

Considering that I haven’t bought that many books this year, since I am on a ban, I’ll just have to go with Caraval

caraval

15. What Books Do You Need To Read By The End of The Year?

There is way too many books to list! A few of them though would have to be Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell, Metaltown by Kristin Simmons, and Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Days of the Week Book Tag

IMG_0723

I found this book tag on @Thrice Read, and thought it was a cute and short one to do. I don’t really like tagging other people to do things, so if you like this one then I nominate you! Just let me know if you do it so that I can look at your answers.

Monday: Book you’re too lazy to read ||
Sometimes, I just get into book slumps and I just don’t want to read anything. I really get lazy reading long books, or series that has a lot of books in it. For instance, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I have all of the books, but I am just too lazy to read them all. Mainly because I lost interest after book 2 or 3.

Tuesday: A book that was hard to finish
||

I will have to go with Dorothy Must Die: Stories Vol I by Danielle Paige. It’s been awhile since I have read the first two books, and I thought I would be fine reading one of the short stories volumes. Boy was I wrong, it took me forever to finish because I thought it was so boring compared to the actual series.

Wednesday: Book you haven’t finished ||
I probably read the first 100 pages of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I loved the movies when they came out, so I decided to read the books that they were based off of. I started when I was in middle or high school, and I haven’t picked it back up since. I read The Hobbit with no problems, so I thought TLOR would be no problem.

Thursday: Book you don’t recommend ||
For this one, I will have to go with Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. There was so much hype for this book when the movie came out last year, and honestly I thought the book and movie were just a big let down.

Friday: A book you can’t wait to be released
||
How do I pick just one book? There are so many that will be released soon that I can’t wait to get my hands on! I guess, I’ll just say Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab and Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo as two of the big ones I am waiting for.

Saturday: Book you wanted to re-read right away ||
And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich. This was such a fantastic and creepy book, I felt like I missed a lot of clues throughout that was explained at the end. I would like to reread to see if I can pick them up before the reveal happens.

Sunday: A book you didn’t want to end
||

There are a lot of books that fit this description. I’ll go with Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I like that this is a series, because I just really loved the world building and all of the characters!

What’s a book you didn’t want to put down? Let me know in the comments!

My Life in Books Book Tag

IMG_0723I found this tag on Thrice Read’s page who found it on jessicamarie493 page! I thought this was a super cute idea and figured I’d join in! Check out my answers below and tag yourself if you would like to participate!


Book for Each Initial

S- The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

A- And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich

M- My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

A- The Assassin Game by Kirsty McKay

N- The Number 7 by Jessica Lidh

T- Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

H- Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

A- And I Darken by Kiersten White

Age – Count Along your bookshelf

I decided to just go from the top of my shelf and count down to 27 books. So with that being said I landed on Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I honestly haven’t read this yet, and I don’t know if I actually will TBH. I read up to book 3 of the MI series, and I just lost interest. I have heard of good things about this spin off, so maybe I’ll give it a chance. Has anyone else read this book? Did you enjoy it?

Book that Represents a Destination You Would Love to Travel Too.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. I would love to be part of the Dregs, learning a thing or two from the wraith!

Favorite Color

Green- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander

Fondest Memories of

I know at this point it is probably a cliche to put Harry Potter, but honestly I have the best memories from elementary all the way up to high school with this series. I first discovered the series in 5th grade and I received The Sorcerer’s Stone in paperback for Christmas. I probably read that book about 3-4 times that year alone! Typically a new book would come out during the summer break, and most likely I was at the beach. So my dad and I would go to the bookstore and pick it up while we were vacationing in Myrtle Beach! One year, I was in Alabama and attended a midnight premiere with my good friend. And the very last book came out in the middle of band camp, so my best friend and I got the book and discussed it during our breaks!

Most Difficulty Reading

The book that I had the most difficult time reading was probably Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I loved The Hobbit but I just couldn’t get past page 100 in the first book. I really loved the movies, so that’s why I even stuck it out that long.

Which Book in TBR Pile Will you get the Biggest Sense of Accomplishment From?

I have so many books on my TBR pile and it’s getting a little out of hand! I would have to say that I will get the biggest sense of accomplishment from reading Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. It’s been on there for awhile and then I’ll get to finally read the Christmas present my husband gave me!

Bookish Book Lover Tag

I saw this on ThriceRead and thought what a cute fun little tag to do on a lazy Tuesday during break! If you too are enjoying a lazy day and want something fun to do, then I tag you to participate!

Rules:

  • Use the original banner.
  • Answer the questions!
  • Use lots of book covers.
  • Tag your friends.

What book are you currently reading?

Right now I’m in the middle of And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich, and let me just say right now I am really doing this tag to take a break from the creep factor! I don’t read horror that much, but I will read her novels and I need something to hide behind while reading this!!!

andthetreescreptin


What’s the last book you finished?

The last book I finished was Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (check out my review here). I also tried to read How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather but I had to DNF it. Check out my review of it here.

daughterofsmokeandbonehowtohangawitch

 


Favorite book you read this year?

It is so hard to pick just one book! So, I will have to go with Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo! This was a great ending to the duology and I wanted to prolong the experience as much as possible! Check out my review here.

22299763-298x452


What genre have you read most this year?

I tend to stick towards fantasy with a little dystopian mixed in.

reaptheshadowsreddeath


What genre have you read least this year?

Hmm… probably contemporary. I tend to stick to only a few authors that I really like and this year I was introduced to an author that I will be checking out her earlier books!

IMG_0070


What genre do you want to read more of?

I would like to read more science fiction. My dad is a huge sci-fi fan so it would be great to be able to talk to him about books that he has an interest in. I just don’t know if I can get into Star Trek as much as him.


How many books have you read this year, and what’s your goal?

I have read 93 book and 100 was my goal. I was in a bit of a reading slump this year so I am not surprised that I am 7 books from my goal. Hopefully next year I will be able to meet it!


What’s the last book you bought?

I bought a couple of books from Book Outlet last month. I bought Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell, The Rose Society by Marie Lu, and The Imposter Queen by Sarah Fine.

unhooked


What book are you saving up to buy next?

I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan and I would love to get my hands on Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between. My birthday is coming up in two weeks so maybe my hubbie can surprise me with this (hint hint nudge nudge) or maybe I’ll gift it to myself =D

talkingasfastasican

 


How many books did you check out last library visit?

I honestly don’t know. I only check out ebooks since they seem to have a bigger selection of books I like, and I don’t have to leave my house.


What’s a book you can’t wait to read?

There are a lot of books that I can’t wait to read! But if I had to just pick one, I will go with A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah. J. Maas. I just love this series and her TOG series! May can’t get here fast enough!

23766634


What’s a series you’d recommend to everyone?

I would definitely recommend the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo and the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. They are two of my all time favorite authors and I just love all of their books!


Who’s an author you’re hoping writes more?

All of them! Is that a good enough answer? No? Okay, I choose Leigh Bardugo, Gena Showalter, Sarah Dessen, Sarah J. Maas, and J.K. Rowling.


A few books your heart adores?

Just a few? Okay my heart adores:

  • Harry Potter (all of them) by J.K. Rowling
  • Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
  • The White Rabbit Chronicles by Gena Showalter
  • The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

harrypotterandtheorder


What series’ coming conclusion makes you sad?

Every ending makes me sad, just because I know that it’ll be the last one and I won’t have another book to look forward to the following year. It does get exciting though when the author gives us a brand new series to look forward to!


What books are on your wish-list?

Lets see….hmm…I’ll just list a few:

  • Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
  • Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham
  • Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

wayfarer

I tag anyone and everyone that is reading this tag. I had a lot of fun and would love to see your answers.

Jingle Bells Book Tag

Hello!! It is officially a week before Christmas! Do you know what that means?! It means that in two weeks it’ll be New Year’s Day, and then in three weeks it’ll be my birthday! I love this time of year, because usually I am with family and we get to celebrate two special occasions together. Unfortunately this year I won’t be traveling home to visit family, but I will get to spend it with my husband and pups. What are you doing this Christmas break?

So with that being said, I am participating in this Christmas-y book tag to begin my countdown to Christmas!!

I originally found this tag on ThriceRead, but they found this book tag on rwh92!


“All I Want For Christmas Is You…” | What book do you want to see under the Christmas Tree?

I have a lot of books on my to buy list, but I could settle for seeing the first two books of the Grisha series and Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige!

“Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time…” | What book that you have read this year have you enjoyed the most?

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

“It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” | Which book has most festive look to it?

 

frostfire

Some days I wish that I lived

Elf | What book unleashes your inner child?

l’d have to say Harry Potter, I started this series when it first came out when I was in 5th grade! So when I think back to my childhood, this is the first series that comes to mind!

The Grinch | Your favourite villain…

My favorite villain would probably be the Darkling from the Grisha series!

The Holiday | Name your favourite TWO couples…

Oh, man how am I supposed to pick just two?! Hmm….I would have to go with Piper and Ash from the Steel and Stone series and I really like Celaena and Chaol together before all the shenanigans happened (although I am only a few pages into Queen of Shadows and so far I am not liking Chaol)

What book would you like to give as a present to your followers?

Six of Crows because it is seriously one of the best and I love the duology so much!

This or That Book Tag

Hey my fellow readers and bloggers!

I feel as if it’s been forever since I’ve really posted something that wasn’t my normal Monday and Wednesday posts! I haven’t had a lot of time to read this week or last due to finals week and all my classes giving final exams and/or papers, so I figured I would do a quick little book tag to make things interesting on my blog. =p I found this on Kaytlyn @The Bohemian Bookworm‘s blog, and thought why not. I need a break from writing my final paper.


Reading on the couch or on the bed?

I enjoy reading on the couch when I am watching tv, but I read mainly in bed right before I go to sleep. Which is where my iPad comes in handy.

Male main character or female main character?

I tend to choose books that have a female main character TBH, but I am not opposed to books that do have a male mc!

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

I tend to eat a lot of chips when I am reading. Typically, when I am on the couch, I am reading/watching TV before dinner and just really need a snack to help me make it to dinner. =)

Trilogies or quartets?

I really don’t have a preference for this, but I do like to start them when they are finished. I really like to be able to binge read the series, instead of waiting for the next one to be released. So it doesn’t help that I’ve started Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series! I just need them all!!!!!

First person point of view or third person point of view?

I think I prefer first person POV or multiple POV’s if done correctly.

Reading at night or in the morning?

I can read anytime, but I mainly read at night since that is when I have most of my free time.

Libraries or bookstores?

I love checking out the e-books at the library. Mainly because I can do that from the comfort of my home. Most of my books though do come from bookstores, or lately from subscriptions.

Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

I don’t mind both. It’s how I know if I am invested in the book or not if it makes me feel any sort of outward emotion.

Black book covers or white book covers?

I tend to gravitate towards black book covers. IDK why, but I do…

Character driven or plot driven stories?

Why can’t I have both? I really enjoy books more that include both.


Well that concluded this episode of This or That Book Tag!

I really did have fun answering these questions, so here’s to passing the fun along…

I tag: anyone who would like to participate!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award!

Thank you so much to Literary Hues for nominating me for The Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers, and liebster is a German word meaning beloved or endearing. You should check out Literary Hues’ questions and answers here!

The rules are as follows:
liebster-award-nomination.png

  1. Thank the person who nominated you,
  2. Answer the questions given to you.
  3. Nominate up to 11 other bloggers yourself (preferably those with fewer than 500 followers, this is a newbie award)
  4. Provide those bloggers with 11 questions of your own for them to answer.
  5. Notify them through email or social media.
  6. Don’t forget to put the Liebster Award sticker on your blog!

 

So let’s get this thing started:

  1. What’s one book trope you’re so sick of?

I am very tired of the girl meets boy, boy meets girl, both fall instantly in love. This has been done countless times, and let’s be honest does it really help the book? Unless one of them is under a spell, the answer is no, it doesn’t.

2. What’s one movie or tv show that you wish was based on a book?

Hm…that’s a hard one…Most of the shows that I like to watch are based upon a book. But if I had to pick one…I would say…American Horror Story? I can barely watch the show, because it is a little too scary for me (I’m a wimp) but if it was a book, I can just stop reading when the scary parts happen and pick it back up when the suns out!

3. How do you decide on what to read next?

Typically I pick a book from one of the three book subscription boxes that I subscribe to. If I have read those already, then I pick something from my NetGalley list. If I don’t have an eArc to read, then I just go to my shelf and randomly pick a book. My shelves are currently overflowing and I wish I had time to read more!

4. Name three fictional characters you would invite to dinner. Why?

I would invite Celaena Sardothien, Hermione Granger, and Inej from Six of Crows. I would invite Celaena and Inej because they are both very strong characters, and I would ask them to teach me their ways! I would invite Hermione so that we could discuss everything magic and books!

5. What was the last book that you rated five stars?

My last 5 star read was Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes. You can check out my review here! I noticed that I am very picky when it comes to 5 star ratings.

6. What would be the title of your autobiography?

I don’t think I have accomplished that much to warrant an autobiography, but how about Sam’s Journey Through Life: One Book at a Time?

7. Your guilty pleasure book?

I don’t really have a guilty pleasure book, really just buying a book is a guilty pleasure because I have so many. My husband keeps telling me that I need to stop until my two TBR shelves have cleared up, but I keep buying more! Oops.

8. Do you have any weird reading habits?

I don’t think I do, but if someone ever watched me read might think so. I like to be covered up with a blanket whether on the couch or in bed, so even if it’s very warm in the room I will still grab a blanket.

9. What’s your favourite banned book?

My favorite banned book is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. I don’t think it is currently banned, since I read it in my school’s library, but it used to be! I think that still counts.

10. Do you have an auto-buy author?

Leigh Bardugo, Sarah J. Maas (although depending on how Queen of Shadows goes, that may or may not change), and Sarah Dessen (I guess her books would be my guilty pleasure amongst all of my fantasy and dystopian novels).

11. Describe your perfect reading spot.

My perfect reading spot is at the end of the couch with a blanket, a dog or two (or even three if they all want to cuddle), and a cup of coffee. That way I can ball up if I want to or recline, multiple sitting/laying options all in one spot!

I hope you enjoyed my answers to these questions, and now I nominate the following bloggers:

M @ A Blog of One’s Own

Poetry @ A Bookwyrm’s Lair

Ellie @ Capitol Books

Just a Young Reader

TeenBookLit101

Jody and Amanda @ Simply Reading

The Bohemian Bookworm

I’ve just picked a few bloggers that I follow, and if you don’t know them definitely check out their great blogs!

And my 11 Bookish Questions for you guys are:

  1. If you had to pick a series/book to read for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?
  2. Favorite reading spot?
  3. If you could invite one author to dinner, who would it be and why?
  4. Paperback, hardcover, or ebook?
  5. Do you keep your Funko pops in the box or out in the open?
  6. Do you have any habits while reading?
  7. Library or bookstore?
  8. If you were to write a book, what genre would it be in?
  9. How do you organize your bookshelf?
  10. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? Which literary character would be your traveling companion?
  11. What are your favorite tropes? What tropes are you sick of?

Have fun and happy reading!

Goodreads Monday #2 (8/15/16)

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Page Turner,  and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!

This week I have chosen:

theShadowQueen

Goodreads Summary:

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

This has been on my TBR shelf since it was published back in February! Hopefully, I’ll be able to read this before school starts!

Have you read this book yet? What did you think of it?

The MakeUp Book Tag

makeupedit

First of all, I would like to thank Sam @ RiverMooseReads for creating this tag. Her blog is awesome so please go check it out! Second, I would like to thank Ash @ OnceUponABookshelf for tagging me!

Primer
Pick a book that left a lasting impression on you

Six of Crowsimg_1111

This is a close tie with Six of Crows and Girl Against the Universe. Both of these books left lasting impressions in their own way. They almost had me in a book slump because I didn’t want to pick up another book that might not live up to the greatness I just finished.

 

Foundation
Favorite first book in a series

aliceinzombieland

Alice in Zombieland was the first book I read by Gena Showalter and she quickly became one of my favorite authors. I got sucked into this first book, and then quickly devoured the rest of the series.

Concealer
Pick some characters you wish didn’t exist.

 

The two main characters in these books just really annoyed me. I could have lived my life perfectly fine without them. I didn’t know that a main character could have/be as many cliches as these two. 

Powder
Pick your favorite last book in a series.

Winter_Cover-318x480

 

 

I do have some issues with the last book of the Lunar Chronicles, but I also absolutely loved Winter. This was just a great book to finish a fantastic series.

Eyebrows
Pick a book you think everyone should read

 

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 6.34.33 PM

I would probably say The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. It has almost a little bit of everything for everyone.

Eyeshadow
Pick a book with your favorite colors on the cover

9780373211579_BB.indd

 

I haven’t read this book yet, but I love the cover!

Eyeliner
Pick a dark and mysterious book

sinfulcinderella

This is a fairy tale retelling that you didn’t see coming. Cinderella isn’t the nice and innocent girl from the Disney movie, instead she has a bit of a mean streak.

Mascara
Pick a long book

 

harrypotterandtheorder

This is most likely the longest book on my shelves, but that isn’t surprising considering it is Harry Potter. I love this entire series, and if you haven’t read it yet, you definitely should! 😉

Blush
Pick a book with a cringe worthy romance

 

IMG_0021

Hmm . . . I would have to say that this was the most recent cringe worthy romance. You have your insta-love, and the “I’ll do whatever you say because I love you” mentality from the main character. Yikes.

Highlighter
Pick a book that brightens your day

thetruthaboutforever

Dessen is probably one of my favorite contemporary authors. When I am in between series, I love just picking up one of her books and getting lost in her universe. Each book is set in the same town, so it is great rereading a book and seeing how they all fit in with each other.

 

Lipstick
Your favorite book kiss

seaofshadows

I can’t really think of which characters shared a book kiss that is my favorite. But, I really enjoyed the little romance that was in this book. The ending though is what makes it all that much better!

 

I tag:

Anyone who wants to do this quick fun book tag!

Pokémon Go Book Tag

pokoman go

Hey everyone! Pokémon Go has taken over everything this summer and it is taking the world by storm! I started playing a few weeks after it launched, and I am only on level 14. Thankfully, right next to my office is a Poke stop so I can play during breaks right at my desk!

Alright, so to the tag!

The Pokémon Go Book Tag was created by Aentee @ Read at Midnight (the graphics were also created by Aentee). I saw this tag on Ellie @ Capitol Books blog, and thought what a cute little tag to do on a Saturday morning!

Without further ado, here is the Pokémon Go Book Tag:


Pokemon-Tag-01Starters

I have been reading for a very long time now, and I cannot for the life of me remember what book started that love for reading. When I was little, my dad used to read to me before going to bed every night. So, if I had to guess, I would say that fairy tales really started my love for reading thanks to my dad.

Pokemon-Tag02Pikachu

I will have to say Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, will always be a classic that I could read over and over again.

Pokemon-Tag-03-Zubat

Hmm….I would probably have to say the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I read the first two books before they became popular, thanks to the movie. By the time the last book came around, I really didn’t feel like reading it because so many people were talking about it. (The movies did not help either, but that’s a rant for another day)

Pokemon-Tag-04-Ditto

Hunter by Mercedes Lackey. Just another dystopian novel with monsters, but I couldn’t help but really enjoy it anyway. =)

 Pokemon-Tag-05-Snorlax

This is an easy one. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I’ve read the first two, but I can’t really remember what happened, so I’ll have to start over. There is just so many and each book is just so thick! =/

Pokemon-Tag06-Gengar

This is a hard one, a lot of books have kept me up at night. It’s the whole just have to finish that last chapter before going to bed, but alas 10-30 chapters later it’s 3am and I only have 2 chapters left! Therefore, I must finish, scenario that happens all the time.

Pokemon-Tag07-NidokingQueen

There are many that fit this category. But, if I had to choose just one, then I would pick Cinder and Kai. =)

Pokemon-Tag08-Rapidash

The last fast-paced book that I read was Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes. It was a great stand alone book, that is worth a read in between series.

Pokemon-Tag09-Eevee

I will never get tired of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. So basically any retelling of a fairy tale could be considered a spin-off of TLC right? Maybe, I should just say fairy tales re-imagined and then TLC will be included in that. =)

Pokemon-Tag14-Magikarp

The Siren by Kiera Cass

Pokemon-Tag12-Legendary

Hmm….I would have to say the 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Even though there are mixed reviews, I liked the movie, so I am hoping that I will enjoy the book.

Pokemon-Tag15Mew-MewTwo

I would love to own a first edition of any Jane Austen book.

Pokemon-Tag10-Egg

I am so excited for Flashfall by Jenny Moyer to come out in November. I read the arc thanks to NetGalley a few weeks ago, but I wouldn’t mind reading this again to see how much if anything changed. Plus, it means after the first book comes out, the second one will be that much closer to be released as well!

Pokemon-Tag11-Lure-Module

Sarah J. Mass, JK Rowling, Marissa Meyer, and Kelley Armstrong. Just to name a few.

Pokemon-Tag13-Server-Down

The sequel to Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I found out about the releases the beginning of the year, and it seems as if time is going by so slowly before the release!
