What have you recently finished reading?

The Darkest Minds.
The Unexpected Everything

  • Omg I loved The Darkest Minds! That was so freaking intense and gripping and I honestly may have read it in two sittings, I didn’t want to put that book down ever! Loved it!
  • I picked up Alienated on a whim because I was reading Pride and Prejudice so slowly so I decided that I was going to put it aside and find another book that fit the TBR Takedown challenge of reading a book that’s been on your TBR for over a year, and I choose Alienated and I ended up really liked it, I was shocked by everything that went on in it. I’m currently in the process of writing a review but reality keeps getting in my way.
  • I also really liked The Unexpected Everything I honestly read it in a day I couldn’t get enough of it.

What are you currently reading?

A Book of Spirits and Thieves
Pride and Prejudice
The 5th Wave
Dragonfly In Amber

That is an unacceptable amount of books to be reading at once, but I will explain whats going on here.

  • Dragonfly in Amber put me in a bit of a slump, I was starting to feel like I am not making progress on it at all so that unmotivated me a bit but I will finish it!
  • I blame DiA for the fact that I’m reading Pride and Prejudice so slowly but to be honest its taking me a while to get used to Jane Austen’s writing style.
  • Another TBH, I am not really liking the 5th Wave, I am 25% of the way through it but yeah not really into it. I do want to stick with it though.
  • So after all of this, I thought that a good book to get me back into reading would be A Book of Spirits and Thieves and I was right! I am loving what I’ve read so far so that was a good call. I do need to make progress on this though.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Darkest Magic
The Bane Chronicles
The Lost Hero

  • The Darkest Magic is book 2 of A Book of Spirits and Thieves and it is being delivered tonight and I am excited to be able to dive into it!
  • I have been pumping myself up to be reading the Bane Chronicles so much, I had originally planned on reading a couple chapters here and there during the TBR Takedown readathon sadly I never got around to it but I am still committed.
  • I am so ready for the Hero of Olympus series, I really want to get to the Trails of Apollo so I am planning to use my three day weekend to binge marathon the Heros of Olympus series and get to the Trails of Apollo.

Wow there were a lot of books talked about here.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these books!


Top Ten Tuesday Books that make me want to travel


June 28: Freebie Week
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

So this is freebie week for Top Ten Tuesday, we are able to talk about anything and everything book related, so I choose to talk about a list that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. Books that make me want to travel. I love traveling, I haven’t done a lot traveling in my life, but I’m working on changing that. Growing up I used to have a world map tacked above my bed and I had push pins covering it, there are so many places that I want to go.

I don’t know about you but when I read a book set in another city/state/country/continent I really want to go there and explore it for myself.

So here is my list of places that books have made me want to buy a ticket and travel 🙂

Real places:


Outlander- Scotland

How can you read Outlander and not want to go to Scotland? My main issue is that I want to go to Scotland in 1743 and find my own sexy Scottish Highlander 😉 but I will gladly go to modern day Scotland.

The bf and I are talking about planning a trip to Scotland, so far the plan is to fly to London and spend a couple days there, go up to Edinburgh and spend some days there, explore the Highlands and Isle of Skye, back to Edinburgh, fly to Dublin Ireland then fly home. This is not happening soon but maybe next year *fingers crossed*

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Daughter of Smoke and Bone- Prague

While DoSB initially made me want to go to Prague some additional travel books and looking at attractions and architecture has really made me want to visit Prague.


The Infernal Devices- London

Again with the whole time travel issue, Victorian era London would be cool to be able to visit!


The Bronze Horseman- Russia

Don’t worry I actually wouldn’t want to go to WW2 Russia, but I would still like to go to modern day Russia, preferably in the summer 😉


Anna and the French Kiss- France

Ever since I could remember I’ve always and forever wanted to travel to France or Paris. I love the french language and I am learning it in my spare time just because I want to. Traveling to France has always been a bucket list.


Lola and the Boy Next Door- San Francisco

This is one of my goals for 2017, even if I can only take a long weekend quick trip to San Francisco I would be so thrilled!


November 9- New York City

Another place I’ve wanted to go to for as long as I could remember and it might actually happen this year, my uncle and I were talking about flying to NYC in December to see family over there.


Days of Blood and Starlight- Morocco

This one also is influenced by Casablanca, I would love to go to Morocco and see the architecture, art, and food. I’d really like to go there.

Honorary Fictional Mentions


The Hobbit- Middle Earth/ New Zealand

I would love to go to Middle Earth but only if I can be an elf! That would be beyond amazing!

Also how amazing would it be to go to New Zealand and do the hobbit tour and stay in a hobbit hole?! Dream goal is to stay in a hobbit house!


Harry Potter- The Wizarding World

No explanation needed I’m sure.


Does reading make anyone else want to travel? Where are some places that you would like to travel to? Along with this list I’d also like to go to Barcelona, Thailand, Australia, and China.

Title reveal for Red Queen #3

Today epic reads revealed the title for the next Red Queen book. Monday they gave us a clue via twitter and delighted in tormenting readers everywhere.

I still haven’t read Glass Sword. Just throwing that out there.

What could it be???

Prince’s Cure?
Prince’s Curse??

People’s guesses included

Prince’s Cage
Someone’s guess was Princess Scorned and I really like that idea!

*If you need a laugh go to epicreads’ twitter feed and click on the thread for this, there are some hilarious guesses.*

But what is the actual title?

I’m glad you asked.

It is King’s Cage

I like it like I said, though, I still haven’t read Glass Sword. I’ll probably need to soon.

Now I can’t wait for the cover!


What do you think of the title?

What have you recently finished reading?

I just finished the Night Circus and Days of Blood and Starlight and I seriously loved them both. I already want to reread The Night Circus and Days of Blood and Starlight had a vise (haha like if you get it!) like grip on my heart the entire time. I absolutely adore Laini Taylor’s writing and this trilogy is spectacular!

What are you currently reading?

I’m taking a bit of a break from Dragonfly in Amber at the moment to read The Darkest Minds. I only have 200 pages left of DiA but I feel like I’m getting nowhere reading it so I’m putting it aside (again) for now. Will pick back up soon. I am enjoying the Darkest Minds, it’s a little intense but I’m liking it a lot!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Probably Pride and Prejudice, I have a feeling that book is going to take longer then I would like to read so I’m hoping to get it under my belt before I get to The Unexpected Everything and the 5th Wave. I’m maybe going camping this weekend and if I’m not I might be housesitting,

I’m maybe quite possibly going camping this weekend and if I’m not I might be housesitting, either way, I can’t read much if I go camping, I’ll actually have to *gulp* socialize *cue horror music*

Don’t get me wrong I really like camping but then there are people there and in the words of my loveable/eccentric aunt “I dont do the public” life motto right there.

The last time I went camping they all gave me a hard time for trying to read Queen of Shadows instead of talking to them.

Cover reveal for A Crown of Wishes

It’s no secret that I loved The Star Touched Queen.

And what’s not to love? STQ was a beautiful Indian mythology retelling with a Hades and Persephone theme. Roshani’s writing style is beautiful, in my review, I compared her writing to Laini Taylor’s, seriously it’s gorgeous.

Technically The Star Touched Queen is a standalone with a companion novel (A Crown of Wishes) being released in 2017 and today they revealed the cover of A Crown of Wishes.

there’s also an excerpt of Chapter 1 and right away you can tell our MC will be sassy. I like it. I’m hooked. I’m ready for March 28th 2017 when this beauty comes out.

Just from reading the excerpt, I don’t think you would have to read The Star Touched Queen in order to read A Crown of Wishes.

Go read the excerpt!

I am so excited this cover is just gorgeous!


Top Ten Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year

June 21: Top Ten Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

While compiling this list, I realized that I haven’t read many 2016 releases. I really struggled to think of all the 2016 books I’ve read and it turned out to be exactly ten books, but I have really enjoyed the new releases that I have gotten to so that’s okay right?

  • Truthwitch
  • The Rose and the Dagger
  • A Gathering of Shadows
  • The Forbidden Wish
  • The Star Touched Queen
  • Rebel of the Sands
  • A Court of Mist and Fury
  • Lady Midnight
  • When We Collided
  • The Siren

What are some of your 2016 favorites? Do we have any similar ones?

Tome Topple Wrap Up

Tome Topple is over and sadly I did not reach my reading goals but that’s okay they were fairly ambitious. I am extremely happy with all the progress that I made throughout it all.

So I read

A Court of Mist and Fury
Lady Midnight
The Night Circus
319 pages of Dragonfly in Amber (I only have 200 pages left!)
Lumberjanes volume 3.

page total: 2187 pages.

I can’t wait for the next round of Tome Topple. I thought that this was a fun and creative readathon and super motivating to read some of my bigger books.
