July Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(72).jpg

Fortunately for once I actually stuck to my July TBR! With the exception of “Daughter of the Pirate King” since I had to return it to the library where someone had a hold on it, so maybe someday I’ll get to it! I definitely didn’t read as much as I wanted to this month, I still did pretty good don’t get me wrong, but I got pretty hung up with “Want” and that put me into a mini reading slump there unfortunately.

Overall July was still a pretty great month and I’m hoping it went well for all of you, my fellow book lovers, as well!

Books Read This Month: 6

The Disappearances by Emily Bain MurphyDreamfall by Amy PlumAlex + Ada, Vol. 1 by Jonathan LunaPretty Deadly, Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnickWant by Cindy PonQueens of Geek by Jen  Wilde

I pretty much enjoyed all of the books I read this July which is pretty awesome! The only book I didn’t really like a ton and was “meh” would be “Want” by Cindy Pon unfortunately. I know it’s had a ton of hype but it was just a little boring for me. My favorites of the month would have to be “Dreamfall”, “Pretty Deadly Volume 1”, and “Queens of Geek” which were all pretty damn awesome!

I should have finished “Monstress” by now bu I just haven’t had time to sit down and give that one my full attention but it’s pretty dang good so far and the art is beautiful!

As for “The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue” it is immediately addicting and I’m actually having a ton of fun reading it!

June Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday (18)

June was a fantastic month for me! Honestly it’s been really amazing to see my blog being supported so much by all of you it blows my mind and I’m extremely grateful for each and every one of you!

It’s also pretty great that I managed to read so many books as well although I have to say my June TBR did NOT go as planned at all and I’m so sorry…..

Hopefully I’ll stay a little more on track this month with my reading!

Overall I had really mixed feelings about the books I read this month, it seemed I either really liked them or really disliked them. My favorite read would be “Lost Boy” and I really did not like “One of Us is Lying” and “Dare Me”.

Top Ten Tuesday(60)

I think I’m the MOST proud of this month considering…well just everything! I read more books than usual (well not that many more but shhhhhh), got more posts up, and even got a pretty good spike in my stats and such! So I think it’s safe to say I had a really great May!

I’m definitely looking forward to June with all of the great new releases coming up and hopefully more time to read!

The Seafarer's Kiss by Julia EmberAn Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa TahirThe Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil GaimanEvery Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuireRuthless by Carolyn Lee AdamsAlice by J.M.  SullivanYou Will Know Me by Megan Abbott

I pretty much enjoyed every single book I read this month, really the only ones that were okay were “The Seafarer’s Kiss” and “Ruthless” but the rest were amazing! That’s actually a pretty good month, now that I think about it, where I didn’t hate at least one book. I was definitely the most impressed with “An Ember in the Ashes”, “Every Heart A Doorway”, and “You Will Know Me”.

April Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(54)

So this month was pretty great for me as far as both reading and posting! I’ve finally caught up with many old comments and posts since having a slump at the end of March, so I’m happy to be back! I also had a decent month for books as well I read 4 even though the average has been 5 for me per month I still read some great books!

I’m definitely looking forward to May because it’s going to be an AMAZING month for releases, I think I’ll be doing up a post about those this week too so keep an eye out!

Books Read This Month: 4

The Roanoke Girls by Amy EngelLiving Dead Girl by Elizabeth ScottTiger Lily by Jodi Lynn AndersonRed Rising by Pierce Brown

The only book I really disliked out of the ones I read this month was “The Roanoke Girls” which I just found to be very disappointing. However, the rest of these books were really great! I still have to collect my thoughts on “Living Dead Girl” since it’s a very short book and one that’s also pretty disturbing. I also don’t know how in the world I am going to write a review for the AMAZING “Red Rising” yet either!

Also as soon as I’m finished I’m going to start my ARC of “The Seafarer’s Kiss” which is a retelling of The Little Mermaid with a F/F romance!

March wasn’t the best of months for me but it was still alright as far as reading went! I did have a bit of a blogging slump there at the end which was absolutely ZERO fun but I’m back now and will hopefully be getting more posts up. I do apologize for all the posts I’ve missed from you guys and I know there are comments from WEEKS ago I still haven’t replied to but bear with me I’m getting to it all!

The Women in the Walls by Amy LukavicsBad Blood by Demitria LunettaThe Night Circus by Erin MorgensternThe Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie OakesThe Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I pretty much enjoyed every book I read in March which is amazing especially since I did not have such good luck in February. Of course I’d have to say “The Night Circus” and “The Hate U Give” were my favorites and both are definitely 5 star books! I’m not sure how the heck I’m going to be able to write reviews for them……

I’ve been switching books a lot lately trying to find the ones I’m in the mood for so if you follow me on Goodreads I’m sorry! I did finally settle on “Living Dead Girl” which is a super short book and then after that I’ll be going straight into “Tiger Lily”!

I also have a poll on Twitter going right now about which of the following books I should read next: “Red Rising”, “The Song of Achilles”, “Starflight”, or “An Ember in the Ashes”! So if you don’t follow me on Twitter feel free to leave a “vote” in the comments below!

February Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(48)

So February was one of my best months ever as far as stats go which is awesome it also wasn’t such a terrible month for reading either. The only thing that happened that I wasn’t happy with was I got sick last week and didn’t get ANYTHING done, no reading or anything. Fortunately I’m feeling better and am looking forward to getting some shit done this month!

Well I didn’t get as much done this month as I wanted to but it was still pretty decent! I’m trying to finish up some ARCs (which can take a while if I’m not enjoying them) and still trying to catch up on comments and posts, I’m really awful at this sometimes it’s like I’m in a commenting slump if that makes sense? However, I’m trying my best to chat with you all!

I’m continuing on with The Walking Dead graphic novel series (and boy is it not disappointing) and the only book that really blew me completely away this month was “Night Film” which is honestly one of the best books I’ve ever read. I need to get my review up, sorry!

I was supposed to have finished this already but reading “Exo” took me too long so here I am, but I’m actually really enjoying this book so far! I’ve seen a lot of “meh” and negative reviews for it so I wasn’t expecting something this enjoyable.
