September Haul

20160929_214405

You know what really sucks?

Right now I’m looking at that photo up there ^ and realizing that I forgot to add in two books. That kind of annoys me. I thought I was well prepared too, but I guess those books just flew under the radar.

Oh well, nothing I can do about it now but just use your imagination and pretend they’re there…pretty please? With a cherry on top?

September was a decent buying month for me. I bought a couple books that I had been wanting, some I had been anticipating, and others were really cheap and I just couldn’t pass them up.

September was originally dedicated to catching up on series month, well I hit a massive reading slump! I couldn’t get interested in anything for the life of me, so now that I am motivated to read, at least for the time being, October will be my catch up on reading month.

Let’s get on to my haul!

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?


I’m really bummed, the other day I found out that the readathon (Slay that Series) that I was really excited about and really pumped about was rescheduled. My excitement really deflated from there, but oh well right?


What have you recently finished reading?

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

God this book was pretty great, it was an incredibly slow start but it really picked up after about 50 pages or so.

My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak

Overall I was a bit disappointed with this. I may go and read the Wattpad version sometime soon but I wasn’t impressed with the published version.


What are you currently reading?

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I am so excited for this! Even though I am about 110% sure that it is going to break my heart and crush my soul. Bring it on.

The Absolute True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

One of my coworkers lent this to me so I’m trying to read it quickly so I can get it back to her. If you didn’t know, I work at a native american Tribal Government and this book takes place in Skokomish WA, which is in the same area that I am from. That is pretty cool and I am excited to dive into this. I’ve heard a lot of great things about it.


What do you think you’ll read next?

I really want to get to both of these and to determine which one I am going to read first I am planning on reading 5 chapters of each book and seeing which one captures my attention most, and then I’ll go from there.

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness


Those are my reading plans for the week, what are yours?

Which book do you think I should pick up first: Never Fade or The Ask and the Answer?

The Wine Book Tag

I stumbled across this tag from Cátia at The Girl Who Read Too Much

My first thought when I saw this was “I love wine, I gotta do this tag!” So here it is, I am a little disappointed that my favorite wine (Riesling) wasn’t on the list but oh well, I don’t know how it would translate into a bookish question so that’s probably why it didn’t make the list.

Back to the tag! Wine! Yes! Let’s do this!

Too much excitement about wine…

  1. Box Wine – a book that people will judge you for liking but you like it anyway!

all_10_super_senshi_artbook_3_cover

I got a lot of judgment from people for reading Sailor Moon manga, not from anyone online but from people in my life. But at the end of the day, I loved the manga series so who cares.

  1. Organic Wine – a book that doesn’t have any added crap in it and is just written perfectly.

 20151201_181719

The first thing that came to mind was Six of Crows! It’s beautifully written and just screams perfection in my mind.

 

  1. Gluehwein – a really spicy, wintry read.

 20151028_080456

I have no idea what to put for this one but the book that keeps coming to mind is the Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons. This book takes place in winter and has some hot scenes in it.

  1. Sauvignon Blanc – a really sharp and aggressive read that you couldn’t put down!

 20160803_200624

I dont know if I would label this book as aggresive, I dont know what would make a book be considered “aggressive”, but this was the first one that came to mind so I went with it. Real talk though I straight up devoured This Savage Song in one sitting, I loved it so much!

 

  1. Pinot Noir – a book you didn’t expect much from but ended up getting blown away!

 20160803_200559

Hopeless- I don’t know why but I wasn’t expecting to love Hopeless at all. But I was hooked and glued to the pages. It’s now one of my favorite CoHo books.

 

  1. Chardonnay – a good summer read that was super-zesty.

 20160630_202617

My favorite summer read of 2016 was The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. It was a perfect summery read!

 

  1. Rose – a book that has a little bit of everything in it.

 20160630_203933

A Court of Mist and Fury definitely has a little bit of everything going on in it. So good!!!

 

  1. Shiraz – A full-bodied book that is dark and juicy

 20151016_102122

The Rose Society by Marie Lu! PS who else is really excited for Midnight Star? I am!

 

  1. Merlot – a smooth easy read with a soft finish.

 51bshpugrel-_sx350_bo1204203200_

My first thought was The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West, it’s an easy read, nothing bad really happens, and there’s a cute ending.

 

  1. Champagne – Your Favorite Book

 A1bCf-Xhe4L

Ready Player One is still one of my all-time favorite books and I honestly kind of want to reread it now.

Slay That Series TBR

So I own a lot of unread series. The last time that I counted was about 20ish something unread series in my book collection. It drives me nuts looking at that pile, so because of that, I am participating in another readathon. The Slay that Series readathon. The goal? Finish as many series as you can.

Slay That Series readathon is taking place from September 25- October 2

Goodreads
Twitter

The aim of this readathon is fairly simple – all you need to do is try to “slay” all those series you’ve been neglecting!

MY TBR

If I play my cards right and keep reading through everything, I should be able to cross off 4 books from my unread series list which would be awesome!

Never Fade
In The Afterlight

This series is on my Book Goals for 2016 and I want to get on with completing that list. (I say that as if this series is the only thing that’s keeping me from completing the list. That is so far from the case that it’s laughable!)

The Dream Thieves
Blue Lily, Lily Blue
The Raven King

I’m ready to continue on with the series, I really want to get to this series soon before I start forgetting little details from The Raven Boys.
Crooked Kingdom

la-et-crooked-kingdom-20160222-674x1024

Since this lovely end to the duology is going to be released during the readathon, I made sure to make room in my TBR for it.

Splendor

Splendor-_A_Luxe_Novel_(Cover).jpg

It kind of kills me that this is the last book in the series and yet I haven’t been bothered to read it yet. That will change!

What have you recently finished reading?

I haven’t felt like reading (I blame Empire of Storms) so I’ve been binge watching Gilmore Girls and I’ve been loving it!

I did read a short and beautiful book that captured my heart.

Chasers of the Light
poems from the typewriter series
by Tyler Knott Gregson

I love this man’s poetry. There is so much passion and love in what he writes, all his poems just take my breath away.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I’m only a few chapters in but I am liking it so far! It’s interesting and if were going to be totally honest with each other, I was kind of sold on the book with one of the lines on page 5

“Men are Noisy creatures”

I was laughing so hard when I showed that part to the BF and he started laughing too.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Idk we will see how things go. I kind of want to read more of Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books so that might happen.
