    MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK RELEASES FOR THE REST OF 2018

    *** so this post didn’t post properly from like 2 months ago so here we are – hope you enjoy the “updated” version from the original draft *** There are still some awesome books coming out this year and I need them asap. On another note, I am not prepared for the year to end but it’s probably not a good idea to fret over that now! SEPTEMBER     Sadie by Courtney Summers (4 September 2018): This book has been getting so much buzz lately and it’s usually not a book I’d usually read but the concept sounds really cool Ignite The Stars by Maura Milan (4 September 2018):…

    BOOKS I RAVE ABOUT ALL THE TIME BUT AM HERE TO RECOMMEND ANYWAYS // aka my fave books of all time

    This post is basically just an excuse to screech about my all time favourite books and series but what did you expect? I feel like I talk about them all the time but then again I also don’t know if I do. I feel I don’t shove them enough in your face,  hence this post. Most have probably read them or heard of these but who cares. Also, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson are my faves but who here doesn’t know about them? I just wanted to mention that because I do love them but these are some newer favourites so wanted to give them more spotlight. STANDALONE CONTEMPORARIES  …

    BOOKS THAT MAY CURE YOUR READING SLUMP // ft. addictive, action packed or fast-paced reads

    I was watching a youtube video and was inspired, so I thought to make a list of some books that might break your reading slump. A while back I  did a post about different slumps so click here if you want to read that. I was proud of it at the time so hopefully, it’s still decent. MORGAN MATSON BOOKS   I’ve recently got into her books and Since You’ve Been Gone is one of my all time favourites, but these books are so great. They’re perfect for the summer time and you can so easily get sucked in. I read all of them in the span of a few…

    10 LGBTQIAP+ BOOKS ON MY TBR

    Since it’s PRIDE MONTH I thought I’d give you a list of LGBTQIAP+ books I really would like to read because I haven’t read enough to give you recommendations or anything. There are so many books that look awesome and amazing!! 1) Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz I know this is a well-loved book and that there should be a sequel coming soon. From what I gather its a gay coming of age story with a friendship and what I assume a road trip. I mean from the synopsis I already want it NOW because its something I think I’d love. Ari and…

    PREDICTING 5 STAR READS // books I think I'll love, adore & devour

    Is my TBR pile huge? Yes. Do I buy more books anyway? Yes. I have made a rule for myself to only get books I think I’ll love and I have so many of them right now. I’ve seen this post go around and it seems super fun, so let’s just do it. LORD OF SHADOWS by Cassandra Clare Yes, this is my most shamed. I WILL READ IT. I am scared so I’ve been putting it off but I promise it will happen soon. If you haven’t read the Shadowhunter Chronicles then I honestly don’t know what you’re doing with your life.     STRANGE THE DREAMER by Laini…

    HOGWARTS HOUSE BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

    I’ve been seeing these posts going around and I thought it’d be fun to compile my own list of books to recommend. But basically, I’m just going to pick out a few books that I think fit the specific traits of the different Hogwarts houses. On a sidenote, I can’t really recommend Harry Potter but obviously, if you haven’t read them yet then I don’t know what you’re doing.  Let’s just get into all the books   Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan: The entire Percy Jackson is awesome and amazing. I think it suits this house because all the characters are so loyal (and also brave).…
