May Wrap-Up

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!

Books Read This Month: 7

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”.

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!

So far this book is VERY good, I thought it was going to be another cookie-cutter YA Fantasy book but it’s actually pretty unique and I’m loving it!

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 Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(51)

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!

Books Read This Month: 5

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!

January Wrap-Up

top-ten-tuesday44

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.

October Wrap-Up

top-ten-tuesday17

So after a bit of a hiatus in August and September I came back in full force for October, which may or may not have been due to my love of horror books and Halloween. I got quite a few posts done and a few books read so overall it was a very good month! Hopefully November will be just as great!

Sorry, this is a pretty short post!

July Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(8)

So this month was great as far as reading went but pretty dang awful as far as posts! In my defense though I’ve been going to the lake where I have absolutely zero reception and summer is always a busy time since there’s loads of fun stuff to go do!

Now that it’s August I’m going to try my hardest to get my posting back on track since it will be my one year blogiversary! I really can’t believe it’s already going to be a year since I started book blogging but there will be separate posts about that for sure so for now let’s get this wrap up started!

I have yet to review any of these books ( I know, shame on me) and therefore don’t have an official rating on them because my thoughts aren’t really settled on a few. However, since “Nevernight” will be released in one week my review will be up sometime this week so be on the look out!
