Waiting on Wednesday 1/27

Welcome back to Waiting on Wednesday, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and you talk about books coming out soon that you’re excited about.

New WoW

Right now I’m really anxious for Stars Above to come out! I miss this world and all the characters so much! Plus I’ve heard that there is a section that’s about a wedding and I need answers!


Plus, look at that gorgeous cover!

Synopsis via Amazon:

The enchantment continues. . . .
The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories – and secrets – that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing? How did the brooding soldier Wolf transform from young man to killer? When did Princess Winter and the palace guard Jacin realize their destinies?
With nine stories – five of which have never before been published – and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.


I’m really looking forward to reading all of these backstories for everyone and maybe it’s silly to say but I think reading this is going to be like visiting old friends. Do you get what I mean or do you feel the same way about this?


WWW Wednesday 1/27/16

Good Morning

So I have a very unexciting WWW Wednesday lined up for today, I haven’t been reading that much to be honest, I’m feeling a little slumpy and its been fairly busy.

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words. Simply answer the following questions:

What have you recently finished reading?

What are you currently reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

What have you recently finished reading?

Besides Truthwitch (which is the reason I’m feeling a bit slumpy) I haven’t finished anything. 😦

Yeah, so this is my life right now, right up there ^


What are you currently reading?

I am still plugging away at Outlander and listening to Red Queen and The City of Bones on audiobooks.

I think once I finish one of those I will feel more motivated to get back into reading, to me nothing is more motivating than finishing a book lol 🙂


What do you think you’ll read next?

I have no idea. I think once I’m done moving (hopefully by this weekend) Im gonna pick out some books from the TBR Jar and go from there.



So yeah some exciting stuff going on. I’m sorry for not being very active in reading and blogging, sadly that with moving and schoolwork, my personal reading and blog have had to take the back burner 😦

But enough about that, what’s everyone else reading?


Belated Christmas Haul


These are all the books I bought for myself with some of my Christmas money.


First up I picked up the rest of the Bloodlines series


The Fiery Heart
Silver Shadows
The Ruby Circle

All by Richelle Mead


Maggie Kitty! She looks kind of offended that I placed these books next to her.

I loved this series, I dont know why I waited so long to read these!


I also decided to pick up the Sweet Evil trilogy

Sweet Evil
Sweet Peril
Sweet Reckoning

All by Wendy Higgens

Amazon and I need to have a little talk, when you buy a brand new book and when you take it out the box, this should not be happening!


What’s your deal Amazon?!


I picked up some new releases like



Cruel Crown


How gorgeous is that cover?



I also picked up all the Bright Places, I’ve heard this book is wonderful and heartbreaking and I can’t wait to read it!


So yeah that’s it for this book haul! Unfortunately, I don’t have a pretty picture of them all stacked together, oh well.

Have you gotten any exciting books recently?

Truthwitch Review


by Susan Dennard
Published January 5th 2016
412 pages
book 1 of 4 of the Witchlands series
my rating: 5 oout of 5 stars

Synopsis via Goodreads:while

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery,” a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch


My Thoughts:

So straight up…this book is worthy of all the hype that is going on about it. I loved this so much, I really don’t know what to do with my life now. I loved all of these characters, this magic system, this world, I loved everything about it.

So Safi was my favorite character, I love her passion that she has, while she was very hot tempered she was also just intense with everything that she did from dancing and fighting, to her bond with Iseult. I really loved her fierce protectiveness of Iseult and the desire to defend and protect her from the racism and discrimination aimed at her.

I loved her and Merik’s interactions, you could feel the tension and passion coming off from the pages. You know that frustrated fangirl dance? The one where your OTP is about to kiss but they won’t so you bounce up and down shaking your arms/book in emotional frustration? Yeah, I was doing that a lot during some of their scenes together.

Iseult was also freaking awesome, I want more of her backstory along with more info on her tribe. I also want to know how Threadsisters/Threadbrothers are chosen. Is there a ceremony? Does their witchery have to be compatible? I still have a lot of questions. I also feel like I didn’t get to know Iseult as well as I could have in this book.

From what I do know about her so far is enough for me know that I love her! Her compassion and empathy, her strength. I loved how she and Safi completed each other and I can’t wait to see more of them.

The worldbuilding was freaking awesome I felt like I was immersed into this world and it just felt so real to me. I also really loved the magic system, it did remind me of the Grisha magic system, just a little bit though and because witches specialized in areas, you had Windwitches with reminded me of squallers from the Grisha universe with the way they directed the ships.

I would highly recommend this book to any YA Fantasy lover, it was such a great story about friendship and there was a slow romance build up and that’s always nice. It was so great, I cant believe that I have to wait a whole year until the next one.


Hello everybody! 🙂

So I was tagged by Shivalika @ Whimsy Journals to do this Resolutions tag and it sounded fun so here we go!



Reading 100 Books: So last year my reading goal was to read 150 books, sadly I only read 148, I just couldn’t squeeze those last two in. This year I started taking some college classes and I don’t imagine that I’ll have that much free time to read like that. So I’m going to lower my goal to 100 books. Not sure if I can make that but I will try.

Classics Rush: I have a long list of classics that I want to make my way through. At the least I am hoping for one a month.

PopSugar Reading Challenge: Yep I’m gonna give this a shot again, wasn’t able to finish it last year so we’ll see. BTW if anyone knows of a book where the protagonist is a receptionist/office assistance let me know, one of the challenges is to read a book where the protagonist works in the same profession as you do.



Blogging Slumps: Sometimes I just get into a little bit of a slump and I don’t know what to write about. Its happened whenever I’ve read series since I’m not sure if I want to review all the books in the series since they most likely will contain spoilers, or if I should review the series as a whole. I just don’t know, do any other bloggers ever have this problem?

A Feature: I’ve had this idea to do a kind of weekly wrap up, talk about all the books I read that week, do a weekly haul if I bought any books that week, link review posts. That kinda thing.


I will not give up on school. I will not give up on school. I will not give up on school. I want to maintain a really good GPA so I can transfer to a physical campus to complete my bachelor’s degree.


Take better care of myself: I really want to have a better diet then what I have going on right now (which is eat anything my heart desires) and also get back into rock climbing and do more hiking this summer. I’ve been toying with the idea of taking up yoga.

Some Adventure: I really want to travel somewhere with the BF this year. Not sure where but just getting away and going on an adventure would be amazing.

So that’s all I’ve come up with this year. Hopefully I can stick to it! Thanks for tagging me Shivalika!

WWW Wednesday 1/20/16

It’s going to be a busy day.

I’m helping my mom pack and move from Washington to Northern California, we are going to be driving down amd it’s about a 14-hour drive and I am just not ready for it. Mentally that is haha. I don’t know how much time I’m going to have to work on school work or for blogging so I’ve written out advanced posts and did what I could for school. I’m also prepared with a 12-hour audiobook to help pass the time.

Comic book haul

The other day I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve been to my local comic book store, more like a couple months. I thought to myself that my absence from comics is unacceptable, so I went to the comic book store and bought a couple comics, and a few Funko pops. I just love those little collectibles!

First up I bought a few continuations of a series that I really like

Gotham Academy issues #11, #12, #13

Obviously, I’m not caught up on the series since I had to pick these up, but I’m really not caught up on the series because I think I left off on issue #5? #6? I don’t know anymore but I want to sit down and just marathon this series now.

Synopsis via DC Comics

WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by…like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange is the students!

Like, what’s up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what’s the deal with her creepy mom? And how come that Freshman MAPS is always following her around? And is she still going out with Kyle? P.S. Did you hear the rumor about the ghost in the North Hall?!

GOTHAM ACADEMY is a new, monthly teen drama set in the shadow of Batman and the craziness of Gotham City, with new characters and old plus a secret tie to Gotham’s past…

The Mighty Thor issues #1 and #2


I loved the new Thor series last year! I was not prepared to see who the new Thor was, My guess was wayyyyyyy off! Seriously I didn’t see it coming at all.

Silk issue #1 

Not caught up on the previous Silk series but when I am I am going to want this for sure!

Radioactive Spider-Gwen

Again, I’m not sure what this is about but I liked Spider-Gwen so I want to give this a shot.

Funko Pops!

They are so cute! I already have a Stormtrooper funko pop guarding my star wars books and when I saw this Darth Vader I knew I had to have him!

I also have a little collection of Harley and Ivy, it weighs in Harleys favor since she’s more popular than Ivy, that’s a separate rant for another time, though. But I never see the Harley with the Mallet, I always see the one with the cork gun, but I like the mallet a little bit more.

So that’s it for this little comic book haul. Have you read any of these? Do you collect Funko Pops?
