March [2017] Wrap Up

March

I know its almost a full week into April but I’ve been so disappointed with my reading that I pushed this post as far back as I could. So in the month of March I read, wait for it… a total of two books which is a definite improvement over last months one (I didn’t even do a wrap up) if you noticed. Anyway I’ll quit my moping now and just get to the books:

A to Z Book Tag

a-to-z

I don’t know who exactly created this tag but I saw it over on Enchanted by Books’s blog and immediately wanted to do it! I’ve seen a lot of A to Z tags but this one seemed unique enough so :

Author you’ve read the most books from:

Probably Sarah J. Maas, I’ve read every single one of her books so that’s about 7.

EDIT: Wait now that I think about it Rick Riordan takes the top spot; I’ve read all books in the Percy Jackson series, all in the Heroes of Olympus series, The Trials of Apollo and The Sword of Summer so 12 books in total!

Best Sequel Ever:

Hands down A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. That ish was amazing!

Currently Reading:

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Any boy from Morgan Matson’s books.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

Starting this blog. Discovering/reading a whole other world of books because of it.

Just Finished

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

This is a very personal choice, so no one mock me for it! I avoid books about angels and demons because they all tend to feel like a mockery of my religion/beliefs.

Longest Book You’ve Read:

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons it’s over 800 pages but was totally worth it!

Major book hangover because of:

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis. This book had be thinking about nothing else for days. It’s really powerful.

Number of bookcases

Umm about three… Spread out across my devices (phone, laptop, tablet)

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Its one of my favorite books of all time!

Preferred Place To Read:

Couch. Bed. The back of a goat. Doesn’t really matter to me

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“Quiet people have the loudest
minds.” ― Stephen Hawking

Reading Regret:

Sticking to the same and not exposing myself to the rich diversity out in the world.

Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):

Oh the shame! Lets see: The Darkest Mind Trilogy by Alexandra Bracken, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Snow Like Ashes Trilogy by Sarah Raasch, The Young Elites Trilogy by Marie Lu, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Perculiar Children Trilogy, Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown … I could go on forever.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:

  1. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  2. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Pierce Brown! That man is hotter than fiction😍🙈🙈

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:

A Court of Wings and Ruin

A Court of Wings and Ruin by S. J. Maas, need I say more?

Worst Bookish Habit:

Squishing big books into small spaces and horribly denting the covers and pages.

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:

On my digital shelf the 27th book is Winger by Andrew Smith.

Your latest book purchase:

A Clash of

A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, I haven’t even finished the first book but I knew I had to have the second one on hand for when I did!

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee! That book had me hooked on all the juicy drama.


That’s it y’all! Not going to tag anyone because this tag seems to have been around forever but if you wanna do it go for it!

November ’16 Wrap-Up

wrapup

Okay I seriously cannot deal with how fast the time is flying, I mean November is over already?!  This month I got sucked into the blackhole that is Pretty Little Liars (5 seasons in one month has to be some kind of record) so I’m pretty surprised that I read about 7 books this month. Continue reading “November ’16 Wrap-Up”

October ’16 || Wrap Up

Another month, another wrap up.

This month has been very anti-climatic for me. I’m on vacation from university (it’s summer break on my side of the world) and before I came back home I was like I’ll get so much reading done and I was feeling so hyped up but then I got home and only read like 4 books (one of them was a short story but who cares right). Honestly I’ve spent the whole month binge watching Outlander, Sillicon Valley (!!!) and the Bachelorette (I have NO shame). Continue reading “October ’16 || Wrap Up”
