Hi!

I feel like I am slowly getting out of this dang reading slump! It’s still there, but not as bad as it was. I’m happy to finally start reading more again. I know July isn’t going to be my best reading month though. Anyway, here are the books that I’ve been reading this week and all books are linked to their Goodreads pages.

Currently Reading:

little&lionrestofusjustlivehere

Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

I am currently reading Little & Lion and The Rest of Us Just Live Here. I don’t always read two books at one time, but I am trying it with these two. I’m not that far into either of these books, but they seem promising so far.


Recently Finished:

mirrorme

Mirror Me by Tara St. Pierre

I just finished Mirror Me the other day and I really enjoyed it a lot! It was pretty fun and a bit creepy too. I’ll have my review up for it on Tuesday (July 25th), which is the release date for this book.


Reading Next:

theheartswesoldlongwayhomesaga2

The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Saga Vol 2 by Brian K. Vaughan
Long Way Home by Katie McGarry

I actually have quite a few ARCs to read, so I will probably read The Hearts We Sold next since it will be releasing August 8th. I also still have Long Way Home and Saga Vol 2 up on my to read next list. I really want to get to these two. Hopefully get to the Long Way Home at least since I currently have 14 days left until it’s returned to my library. Saga Vol 2 I’m not too worried about it since I actually own that one and it’s a graphic novel, so it’s really quick to read.

What are you currently reading? Recently finished? Reading next? Have you read any of these books? Let me know and link me to your posts if you have one!

Hi!

I think it’s been a few week since I’ve done a WWW post! I’m currently kind of battling a reading slump (and blogging slump) that I am hoping I will finally get out of soon. Here are the books that I’ve been reading this week…

Currently Reading:

mirrorme

Mirror Me by Tara St. Pierre

I was really excited when Tara asked me if I wanted to read her new book Mirror Me. I really enjoyed her first book Just A Few Inches. I am not that far into the book yet, but I think I’ll like it.

Goodreads Description: Hannah McCauley doesn’t look at herself in the mirror anymore. After a rebellious past, she now attends a strict private school in a new town, where her recently divorced mother has put her on social lockdown. No driving. No bad grades. No skipping classes. No unapproved friends. No makeup. No boys. And the subject of her best friend from her old school is definitely forbidden. Hannah is being punished for something that happened a year earlier, something that she would like to put behind her. But strange occurrences frighten her, and she’s accused of breaking rules and doing other terrible things without any recollection of them. No one believes her, so she starts distrusting everything, even her own reflection. Is she being haunted by her past? Stalked by someone with a grudge? Or is it all in her head? If she doesn’t figure out what’s happening fast, her existence could end up irreparably shattered.

historyisallyouleftme

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

I really enjoyed History Is All You Left Me. It was so sad and heartbreaking, but still so good! There were a few times throughout that I was bored, but I was also battling a reading slump while trying to finish this book before it returned to my library so maybe that played a role. Overall though I really liked this story and the characters. The friendship between Griffin, Theo, and Wade was perfect.

Goodreads Description: When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course. To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues. He’s losing himself in his obsessive compulsions and destructive choices, and the secrets he’s been keeping are tearing him apart. If Griffin is ever to rebuild his future, he must first confront his history, every last heartbreaking piece in the puzzle of his life.


Reading Next:

restofusjustlivehere

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here may be my next read. I’m pretty excited about it. I’ve actually had this book since release day in 2015 and still haven’t read it, oops. 😛

Goodreads Description: What if you aren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to read next though, because I’m still kind of trying to get through this reading slump I’m in. I also have these two books below to possibly read next too and I’m super stoked about them.

Hi!

I actually finished three books since last week! I’ve been breezing through books, which has been nice. Here are the books that I’ve been reading this week…

Currently Reading:

wallthedge

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

I am back into the Thunder Road series and I couldn’t be happier. I am about 30% into Walk the Edge and I love every minute of it so far. I am glad that I get to see Razor’s story and so far it’s a pretty sad one.


Recently Finished:

alexapproximatelyaworkinprogressnotetoself

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
A Work in Progress by Connor Franta
Note to Self by Connor Franta

Alex, Approximately was everything I hoped it would be. It was such a fun book and I loved everything about it. I posted a review a few days ago, so I’ll have that linked down below if you want to check it out! I had no idea who Connor Franta was until I read his books. He’s a YouTuber in case you didn’t know. After reading his books, I am definitely a fan. I felt like I could really connect to a lot of the things he was saying in his books and about his life and I love all of his pictures that he took and included in them. I loved A Work in Progress and Note to Self. Great reads and easy to fly through them in a day.


Reading Next:

thecrownsfateramonabluehistoryisallyouleftme

The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

My library did this thing that I hate where all the books that I have on hold get checked out to me at the exact same time. At one point last week I had SIX books checked out to me! These are the remaining three books I currently have checked out to me after I finish Walk the Edge. I am not sure which one I will read next, but it’ll definitely be one of these three. I have about 16 days to read them all…ughhh. DAMN LIBRARY! I am excited about them all though.

I still need to do my vacation picture post. I swear I say this almost every post. I think I’ll start doing the typing of it first and then go through all my pictures. That’s the part that is basically holding me back, the pictures. I just have so many to go through to decide which to post lol. OVERWHELMING! But I do want to share, so I will eventually do this. PROMISE! 😀

Until then, here is one of my favorite pictures from Washington DC. After walking all over the city all day in the heat and climbing all of the stairs to get to the top of the Lincoln Memorial, here is our view when we took a break after visiting Abe (I love Abraham Lincoln so much). I was not ready to walk down those stairs right away haha. It was worth all the heat, walking, and stairs though. The view was amazing and seeing the Lincoln Memorial was so amazing and my favorite.

Hi!

It’s been a little awhile since I’ve done one of these posts. I also still need to do my vacation post and share some pictures from that with you guys. Hopefully I’ll get some time this week/weekend to do that. I’ve been pretty busy since getting back from vacation, so I am behind on blogging. I’ve been trying to catch up with your posts and everything too. It may take a bit for me to get back into the swing of things around here. I still want to be on vacation, lol. Here are the books that I’ve been reading this week…

Currently Reading:

alexapproximatelyimthinkingofendingthings

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid

I’ve been eyeing Alex, Approximately for weeks now. I’ve been really wanting to read it, but I was holding off on buying it since I’m trying not to buy a lot of books these days until I read more of what I have. I’ve been thinking about it so much that I finally caved and bought a copy. I’m almost halfway through with it and I really like it so much! I’m glad it I caved and bought it. I seen a lot of mixed things about I’m Thinking of Ending Things and a couple of my friends on here have said it was crazy and they didn’t know what they were reading. It definitely left me intrigued about it, so I finally decided to check it out from my library. I’m about 25% through it and I am so confused and so bored. I’m not sure if I want to finish it or not. It’s pretty short, so I may try to stick it out until the end.


Recently Finished:

thesongrising

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

I finally got around to reading The Song Rising. I love this series so much. I really enjoyed The Song Rising, but I didn’t think it was better than the first two books in the Bone Season series. It was really good, but also it was a really slow start and I felt like not a lot was going on. I’m still really stoked about the next book in the series. Now begins the wait for the new book to release, which most likely won’t be until next year or longer.


Reading Next:

wallthedgenotetoself

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry
Note to Self by Connor Franta

I’ve been waiting for my library to get the next two books in the Thunder Road series in and they finally did. I plan to read Walk the Edge and maybe Long Way Home this month and possibly next. I’ve also been wanting to get my hands on Note to Self and my library finally got that one in as well and checked out to me. I think I may pick up that one before Walk the Edge. I’ve been debating on buying it, but in bookstores it was like $24 and NOPE not paying $24 unless I love it and even Amazon pricing was pretty pricey for hardcover (over $16) and e-book ($12) . I’m glad my library got it in though and if I love it then I will buy it for sure.

I’ve been trying to use my library more when I’m not reading my own books I have at home. I don’t want to keep spending money on books I end up not liking and rather spend my money on books I really love, so I’ve been trying to borrow them from the library (or Netgalley) first before buying. There are occasions where I will buy before reading it first though, just not always anymore. Speaking of library, I had quite a few books on hold because they weren’t available yet. It’s forever a struggle. They never have them when I’m ready for them, but when I’m not ready for them they all get checked out to me at one time. I have five library books to read in 20 days (or less on some books) and I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to do it before they get auto-returned (e-books get auto-returned) back to the library, sigh. WISH ME LUCK! 😀

HI!

I’ve been feeling kind of reading slumpish. I’ve been trying out a bunch of different books this week, but can’t seem to want to sit and read for long periods of time, so I have been reading a few pages here and there. I have a 15 hour long car ride coming up Sunday though, so maybe I will get a ton of reading in then! 😀 Here are the books that I’ve been reading this week…

Currently Reading:

theunlikeliestorch

The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone
Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

I am about 75 pages into the Unlikelies and it’s pretty enjoyable so far. Hopefully I can read some more at some point this week. This week is going to be insanely busy for me with getting everything ready for our honeymoon trip. I am halfway through the audiobook for A Torch Against the Night and honestly I am so bored. SO FREAKING BORED. I haven’t picked it up again in a few days. I really loved An Ember in the Ashes. 😦 Maybe the second half of Torch will be good when I finally get around to picking it up again.


Recently Finished:

sagavol1

Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

I finished Saga Vol. 1 and it was so so good. It was my first real attempt at a graphic novel and I loved it. It got a little weird sometimes, but it was still great. So many feels. So many! It had me laughing out loud quite a bit as well. I love Marko and Alana. They were hilarious. I am really excited to continue with the series.


Reading Next:

thewindfallthesongrisingwallthedge

The Windfall by Diksha Basu
The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon
Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Same deal as it has been for the last few weeks for my reading next. I’m not entirely sure what I want to read next, but here are a few options I have and also the next two volumes of Saga (not pictured). I’m not bringing a ton of physical books with me on my trip, but I have my Kindle loaded up with a TON of books including these three. I’ve had the Windfall in my reading next list for the last few weeks. It’s the last ARC I have on Netgalley and it’s releasing at the end of June so I want to get to that one soon. I am dying to see what happens next in the Bone Season series. I read a couple chapters of The Song Rising and looking forward to reading more. I loved Nowhere But Here SOOO much and I am really looking forward to reading Walk the Edge, so we’ll see happens! What I’m reading next is really up in the air right now, to be honest.

HI!

I mentioned last week that I was taking a little break from reading, which lasted for about 4-5 days. Over the weekend I got back into reading and read one of the ARCs on my list and also so far this week I was able to finish an audiobook as well. 😀 Here are the books that I’ve been reading this week…

Currently Reading:

sagavol1

Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

I’ve been seeing a lot of good things about Saga, so I decided to give it a chance. This is my first time reading a graphic novel. I’m about halfway through with it and I really like it so far. I decided to order the next two volumes and I’m super stoked to finish this one and continue on with the series.

legionAMISHGUYSDONTCALL

Legion by Julie Kagawa
Amish Guys Don’t Call by Debby Dodds

Legion!! I have SO much love for this series. Legion was just as amazing as the other books in the Talon Saga. Julie continues to shatter my heart. Julie and this series has all the millions of pieces of my heart. Amish Guys Don’t Call wasn’t exactly what I expected and turned out to be a little weird for me, but it was still a decent read. I’ll link my review of it at the end of this post.


Reading Next:

thewindfalltheunlikelies

The Windfall by Diksha Basu
The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone

My reading next still looks about the same as last week minus two books that are now in my recently finished. Still up in the air for what I’m going to read next. Possibly one of these two ARCs that I have left and both releasing in June. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for reading over the next few weeks. This week and part of next week I’ll be busy getting things ready for vacation/honeymoon; we leave next weekend! When we actually leave I don’t know how much time I will have between doing things in Washington DC and New York City. I’ll have these ARCs along with me (if I don’t read them before we leave) and the next two volumes of Saga, so we’ll see what happens!

Hey!

I am so tired this week, but I’m glad it’s Wednesday! That means I just need to get through today and two more days of work until the weekend. 😀 Here’s what I’ve been reading…

Currently Reading:

I am not currently reading anything right now. I’m taking a little break from reading since I’ve been reading so much the last month and a half. I don’t want to get into a full blown reading slump and force it, so I need a bit of a break. I’m also like 30+ episodes behind in all of my favorite TV shows. I may use this reading break to catch up with some of my tv shows and also continue on the second Kingdom Hearts game that I’ve replaying through.

nowherebutherebestkindofmagic

Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry
The Best Kind of Magic by Crystal Cestari

I loved Nowhere But Here more than words can ever express. I am also so dang jealous that I am not a part of their family. “Reign of Terror! Hoo-ra!” I also cried way too much, but it was also fun and cute too. So many feels though. *insert crying emoji* I’m excited about reading the other two books in the series (my library needs to hurry up and check them out to me!), but a little disappointed that they are about other characters in the book instead of the MCs in Nowhere But Here. I did like them in Nowhere But Here when they made appearances though, so it’ll be cool seeing a more in depth look into who they are. I surprisingly really liked The Best Kind of Magic. There are lots of different magical elements in this book as well as different magical beings; witches, vampires, werewolves, goblins, fairies and more! It was a lot of fun to read and had me laughing out loud quite a bit. I’ll link my full review of it at the end of this post.


Reading Next:

AMISHGUYSDONTCALLthewindfalltheunlikelieslegion

Amish Guys Don’t Call by Debby Dodds
The Windfall by Diksha Basu
The Unlikelies by Carrie Firestone
Legion by Julie Kagawa

I’m not sure what book I am going to read next once I’m finished with my little reading break. It will most likely be one of these books. The first three are ARCs that are all releasing in June. I am really excited to read them all. I don’t want to read them while I’m in this little reading slump, because I don’t want to force it and end up not enjoying them as much as I would if I was into reading. I have the Legion (book 4 in the Talon Saga) audiobook and I am super stoked to start it. I may start that later this week or next week. I miss my dragons and this series is everything to me.
