Happy Friday Book Nation!

So I’m just getting back into the swing of things so I have little to actually recap in terms of blog posts for the month but I did read a ton of books and I’m really excited to share them with you. I’ll just jump right in because I’ve got nothing else to write in this intro.

Beginners Guide to Reading

reading

So obviously this post isn’t for the people who run book blogs/vlogs and are reading this because clearly you don’t need any of my help in the reading department. This post is for the people who’ve never read a single full length chapter novel in their lives but are trying to change their wierd ways. This post is for the dear readers who stumbled across my blog and wondered how this strange breed of creatures could possibly exist on the Internet with the seemingly sole intent of flailing about books.

The Chainsmokers Book Tag!

chain

Hey everyone! If you’re like me then you’ve been playing the new Chainsmokers/Coldplay collab (Something Just Like This) on repeat for the last couple days. That song is awesome guys,  I can’t seem to get them out of my head so I got inspired to do the Chainsmokers book tag. I wasn’t tagged to this but I’ve seen it floating out the blogosphere. This tag was created by Kat @ KatReadsALot.

Rules

  • Post a blog post or a video (YouTubers you are welcome to do this tag!)
  • You can copy the song lyrics so people can know where the questions are based on. For those without lyrics, we based it on the title. #Genius
  • Tag friends to do the post as well!
    P.S. You don’t have to be tagged to do this tag! Just give it a try!

Judging My Most Anticipated 2017 Reads by Their Covers

2017-releases

Covers are playing a more and more important role in today’s book industry (because who wants an ugly cover staring at them from a bookshelf) so today I’ll be discussing some recently revealed book covers…

*I’ll only be discussing books who’s covers have been released recently.
*This post is 100% non spoilery so don’t fear nerdlings.
*Click the book cover to go to the books goodreads.

THE DARK PROPHECY (The Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 2 2017
Rating: ❤❤

30145666

Okay I have no idea what’s going on here. The cover for The Hidden Oracle (Book 1) was really pretty, I don’t know what this mess is. Something about the color and the detailing is a turn off. Do you agree?

A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN (ACOTAR #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: May 2 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

23766634_2

Excuse me a second… *walks off to scream into a pillow*… Guys I’m freaking out! I’m such a huge fan of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and seeing the new covers always gets me because they’re always epic. Can I just say I totally knew this one would be green! It’s just so powerful, Feyre looks ready to murder with that wicked looking knife in her hand and the armoured dress!

IRON GOLD by Pierce Brown
Release Date: August 22 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤

29217027

Ok let’s be honest with each other for a sec; I haven’t even finished the Red Rising Trilogy yet 🙈🙈🙊 Hear me out! Red Rising is my favorite book (OF ALL TIME!) so I’m trying to go slow with the series and really enjoy it. Anyway Iron Gold looks epic, white covers always look regal but what’s with the burning feather?

DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES (Every Heart a Doorway #2) by Seanan McGuire
Release Date: June 13 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

31450908

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time you know I absolutely, a 1000% loved Every Heart a Doorway and it’s cover so it’s no surprise I love this cover too. Its dark and intriguing – as it should be since we’re going to be exploring Jack and Jill’s sinster world. Mad scientists and vampires… So exciting!

THE WISH GRANTER ( Ravenspire #2) by C. J. Redwine
Release Day: February 14 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

30255943

Let’s be honest again; I never really liked the first Ravenspire book but I’m willing to give C. J. Redwine another chance because this cover is gorgeous! And the synopsis of the book doesn’t hurt too; a Rumpelstiltskin retelling! Could be really good or really bad…

ROYAL BASTARDS by Andrew Shvarts
Release Day: June 6th 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤

25752041

Bastards, thrones and magical kindgdoms. (Sound familiar? 😋) Anyway this is one of my most anticipated reads and the cover is really…. underwhelming. I was just expecting more. Anyway it does sound like an interesting read and from what I could glean its mostly about friendship which is great!

THE BURNING WORLD (Warm Bodies #2) by Isaac Marion
Release Day: February 7 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤

27823755

I’m not even sure when this cover came out exactly because I was too busy squealing over the fact that Warm Bodies HAS A SEQUEL! Like what in the world!?? I read Warm Bodies way back in 2016 (totally loved it!) so I’m dying to read this. Anyway the cover: I love the red and black. Kinda sad to see a burning city in the cover because I thought we had a happy ending in the first book… Oh well…
