Happy Monday! My mum has flown up from South America to visit this month so I’ve been trying to figure out life while entertaining her. It’s been hard to juggle work/reading/hanging out with her but I am forcing myself to post this. I also made a website for our online business and it took me 5EVER to get it semi-set up. I missed you guys so much, forgive me! D:.
Today I am doing a book haul because HOLY CRAP. I went in my library today and pretty much every book I have wanted to read was there and I went into complete fangirl mode.
A Little on The Books
I saw an interview with Ruta Sepetys and she’s such a well versed and eloquent woman. Her personality just made me want to read her works, and it’s also rated 4.3+ on Goodreads.
I actually reread Cinder by Marissa Meyer because I had completely forgotten what happened by the time I started Scarlet . I gave Cinder a 3.75/5, but I definitely want to know what happens next. I was never big on Cinderella so the premise didn’t leave me that excited. Do you want me to review Cinder? If so, let me know below.
Truthwitch has been on my hit list since I heard of it, and to be honest Dennard is only getting the light of day because SJM is my favorite author. I’ve GLIMPSED whispers of it being a hit or miss but refused to look further. I’m not overhyped, and I’m definitely going into this book with neutral expectations. #perfectstrategy
I actually heard of Firstlife here on WordPress and the synopsis sounds SOOOOO GOOOD. I’m super excited to read this.
Two days ago I started reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown. The cover says something about it being perfect for lovers of Katniss (aka my bff), so I’m intrigued as to how I will like it. This series has received endless raves.
Lastly, my quick thoughts on Glass Sword... I wasn’t really that impressed by Red Queen. I DNF’d it the first time I read it, and when I did read it I forced myself to give it a 4/5. I guess I was feeling super generous that day. Anyways, I said I’d continue with the series so I will! We’ll see how it goes. :).
ON A FINAL NOTE: THE COURT OF MIST AND FURY IS OUT SOON AND I AM SO EXCITED!!! If you preorder the book you can get a FREE TOTE BAG. SJM released a newsletter about it, so you should go to her website for more info if you want to get one.
Anyways, that’s all! I tried getting my hands on The Night Circus but the heathen who has it checked out has yet to return it. Maybe next time ;).
PS. IF YOU LIVE IN NY PLEASE GO OUT AND VOTE TOMORROW! PARTICULARLY IF YOU’RE FEELING THE BERN.
