Wonder Woman Book Tag

tags

Thank you so much to Danielle @lifeofaliterarynerd for tagging me. You should totally check out her blog bc it’s awesome.

In celebrating the release of Wonder Woman (the movie) and the coming release of Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer (Aug 29) which I’m DYING to get my hands on, we’re all gonna do this super fun tag while we wait.

Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book character

That would have to be, Inej Ghafa from the Six Of Crows duology by the Queen herself, Leigh Bardugo. This kid can climb, burning walls and hide from shadows, there ain’t nothing cooler than captain Ghafa.

Fantasy Island: A Book Setting you want to escape to

AAAAAHHHHHH! This was so difficult to choose, not only bc most of my favourite worlds are the one where there is a super evil dictator instilling chaos and bloodshed in the streets, but also bc I want to live in all my favourite books and be best friends with all my favourite characters.

Anyways, my choice would be the Lunar Chronicles (post Winter, if I can have any say in it) bc its one of my ABSOLUTE favourite series of all time and like living on the moon people, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Top 10 Historic Fiction Books

tuesday top 10

Historic fiction is one of my favourite genres to read. Idk if it’s because of all those history courses I took in highschool that made me want to tear out my hair or if I just enjoy going back in time, but historic fiction is just magical. 

So, my current list for top 10 historic fiction books (in ya) is. . .

10. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken20983362
After hearing many, many, many mixed reviews about this book, I decided to give it a go, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the pacing is slow, yes, they don’t travel until nearly 50% but once you get past the initial hurdle and you’re immersed in the world, you aint getting out.

9. Prince of Shadows by Rachel Caine12788124
I read this book from a recommendation from one of my closest friends and though I’m usually not a fan of Shakespearean tales (blame school) but this book was so much more than just a retelling of Romeo and Juliet.

I think the reason why I enjoyed it so much was bc 1) historic Italy and 2) the book focused on characters related to Romeo and Juliet and not the couple themselves.

Definitely refreshing.

The Unpopular Opinion Book – Tag

tags

I feel like doing this tag is a rite of passage, have I finally been accepted into the blogger world?

Disclaimer: Sowwy if I trash any of your favs. 🙂

Special thanks to Emma for tagging me. ❤️

Also I’m trying this new look out and would very much appreciate your feedback!!

    1. A popular book / series that you did not like:I feel like if I write the Selection, that would be a popular opinion, so I’m going to go with the Mara Dyer series. On Goodreads all three books have a 4.something average and I CANNOT understand the hype.Screen shot 2014-11-16 at 3.39.53 PMThe first book was meh but the second book was so boring, I couldn’t even finish it.

August TBR – 2017

monthly tbr

WE’RE nearing the end of summer, thank goodness. Should be about one more month to go before the heat gets its unwanted butt out of here (hopefully). Idk if it’s just me, but when the weather gets to that sticky, gross, humid state, I find it sooo hard to read. Anyone else??

So, August.

I was actually really surprised when I was making this list to see that I have a few featured rereads. If you know anything about me, it’s usually that I’m all NO REREADS
and only bc I feel like there are SO MANY books out there and I ain’t got time to read them all along with rereading some favs. . . but look at me, being inconsistent once again.

  1. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas17167166
    #1 reread of the month. I’m actually currently reading this right now with a friend and I’m actually enjoying it more than I thought I would (i was POSITIVE that I would trash it but thank goodness for small mercies)

2. Furthermore by Tahereh MafiFurthermore-Cover-GalleyCat
This is one of those books that I’ve been saying I would read forever and it’s so sad that it’s taken me approximately 15 years before I made good on that promise.
Also, I love the idea!!

Yikes, it’s been a while. I’ve been surprisingly missing the blogging world (sounds fake, I know) and I know it might be too soon to say, but I’m going to try, try, try my VERY best to get back to being active with postings. I also wanna do a little renovating for my blog since it’s looking pretty dreary to me :p so if anyways has any suggestions on how to spice up a blog, they will be v v v appreciate!

Anyways, July was a pretty successful month for me, reading wise. We got some utter disappointments but we also got some fabulous new reads. Soooo, let’s get on with the wrap up. . .

Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2017

Are you kidding me? You’re actually going to make me choose???

I literally spent like 15 minutes trying to decide which one book I will hold over the other incredible books I’ve read this year, damn this is hard. Also, I was going to choose Gemina, bc that book but sadly, it was a reread and so I’m going to go withhh. . .

A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab

Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2017

If you’ve ever talked to me, you’ll know that I cannot go 35 seconds without spewing my love for Melina Marchetta my friends are so done with me and her glorious books. And so this choice was just instinctive.

July TBR – 2017

monthly tbr

We’re back for the never-really-happens-TBR!!! While June was a pretty hectic month, I have very very large plans for July, but I’m trying to restrain myself to only 10 books for this list.

Quick question before we get started, I was looking through my read shelf and noticed that I’m reading like 95% fantasy and like 5% contemporary and like that’s just rood on many accounts so, if anyone has any rocking contemporary recommendations, I would VERY much appreciate it.

Moving on to the TBR,

  1. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer30038855

I heard this one ruins your soul :)) i’m there.

 

2. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge15839984

There seems to be quite a few Beauty and the Beast retellings lately and I’ve heard mixed reviews about this one, but, gotta try.

 

3. One of Us is Lying by Karen McManns

32571395

*cough* was this book on my June TBR???? Really??? You don’t say.
