#IIReadathon Wrap Up!

Dana over at @andbookhoarding hosted the Informal Impromptu Readathon from February 27th until March 4th. As what I normally do, I decided to join in last mimg_5395inute. It was a fun readathon, with sprints being hosted every night, which really helped with my reading. I was able to read 3 books this week, which is the most I’ve read in one week!

The first book I read was The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and I gave this book a 4 out of 5. This book was a retelling of Aladdin and was a definite surprise. I really enjoyed the characters and retake on the story!

Next I read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’ve been wanting to read this book since I watched the trailer. I’m really glad I was able to get to it during the readathon. This book was such a fast read, and I really did end up enjoying it. I ended up giving this book a 4.3 out of 5. I loved how it was told throughout different formats like IM’s and Emails as well. The characters were a lot of fun and I loved the romance.

The last book I read Was Nerve by Jeanne Ryan. I really didn’t like this book and I gave it a 1 out of 5. I watched he movie last month which made me want to read the book. I enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t anything great, but it was simply fun to watch on a Sunday afternoon. However, I really didn’t like the book. I didn’t like the writing, or the characters, and I really didn’t like the romance. It just wasn’t for me. I do however recommend the movie if you want something fun.

Reading Goals || 2017

  1. Read a Sarah J. Maas book. I’ve heard great things about her stories, and I’ve been wanted to check them out. This will be the year that I do that. However, I can’t decide if I want to pick up Throne of Glass, or A Court of Thornes and Roses.
  2. Read more adult novels. When I decide what book to read next, I tend to pick up a Young Adult or New Adult novel. This year, I want to branch out and read more adult novels. If you have any recommendations, I would love to check them out!
  3. Reread my favorite books. I always enjoy rereading, but last year I didn’t reread any of my favorites. I would love to change that this year.
  4. Participate in readathons. Last year, I didn’t  participate in any readathons, and it made me feel like I was missing out. So this year, I want to participate in quite a few readathons. I have to do research  and see what ones I would want to join in.

And that’s really it. Short and simple goals for this year. I also have some blogging goals for this year that I will share soon. What’re some of your reading goals for this year?

Christmas Songs

I thought I would share a few of the Christmas songs I’ve been listening to nonstop this month!

What have you been listening to? What’s your favorite Christmas song? I will also link my Christmas spotify playlist below if you would like to check it out!

Back into Reading

Hey there!

It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sorry agiphybout that. I’ve kind of been in a weird mood these last few months, and haven’t felt like reading anything. This surely hasn’t been the first time this has happened, and it won’t be the last. However, I’ve been feeling like getting out of this mood, and I need some recommendations to help me. So let me know what you have been reading and loving lately!

So what have I been doing recently? Well at the end of August I started watching Battlestar Galacticbattlestar_galactica_introa(2003 version), and in September I finished it. I was hesitant to start this show because I honestly didn’t think I would like it. I’m so glad to say that I was completely wrong. I absolutely LOVED this show. It was everything you could want in a television show and more! I’m thinking about doing a Why I Love: Battelstar Galactica post so I can share all my love for it there.

2016 Reading Challenges

Happy-New-Year-2016-ImagesI always find reading challenges to be fun. Mainly because I never put pressure on myself to finish them. If I do finish them, great, and if I don’t then that’s fine. I normally choose a few challenges to do throughout the year for fun. This year I have picked 4 challenges.

  1. Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge: I choose this challenge because I don’t read much fantasy. It’s fof-button-2016something that I feel like I’m missing out on. I’m definitely considered a “fantasy newbie” when it comes to this genre. I missed out on a lot of series because this genre always intimidates me.
  2. 2016 Discussion Challenge: I love talking about books, but I never do discussion 2016-Discussion-Challengeposts, which is disappointing. So I decided that I want to do more of those! If you have any recommendations on topics, let me know! I’m making a list.
  3. Popsugar’s Ultimate Reading Challenge: This challenge I’m still on the fence about. I’ve been seeing this around, and I think I’m going to try it and just have fun with this one. If I read booksROCK that fit the categories than great, if not, oh well!
  4. #RockMyTBR Challenge: This one just seems like a lot of fun, and one that I’m excited to participate in!

So those are the challenges that I’m going to attempt and just have fun with. I plan on using books for multiple challenges, and possibly doubling up with the Popsugar Challenge. What reading challenges are you participating in?

Best Books of 2015

So I read quite a few books this year, and I thought it would be fun to share my Best Books of 2015! Now these books weren’t published in 2015, just ones that I read. I will start with number 6 and work my way down to my FAVORITE for the year!

Number Six: The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers23203542

This book was different from anything I’ve read this year, and I was surprised by how I much I really enjoyed it. It follows a boy named Max whose best friend Evan hacks into the live stream of the presidential debate being hosted at there school. He ends up killing himself, but not before sending Max a final message. From there he’s brought back into a life he thought he left behind!

12294652Number Five: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I won’t say much about this one because I did a review which you can check out HERE. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and found myself loving all the characters in this story. I absolutely adore Jase and his family!

Under_the_never_sky_trilogy

 

Number Four: Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi

This serious is seriously so addicting. I was hooked from the beginning, and I read the trilogy in about a week. I fell in love with characters individually and together. Not only that, but the world that Veronica Rossi created is great!

Number Three: Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout13644052

I won’t say much about this one either because I did a full review as well, HERE. Also this is the fourth book in the LUX series and I don’t want to ruin in. Keep in mind that my review does have spoilers. I will say that I couldn’t stop reading this and I loved the ending so much!

Number Two: Article 5 trilogy by Kristen Simmonsarticle-5-series-banner

This trilogy was a complete and total surprise! From the first chapter I was hooked by the world and the characters! I absolutely loved the relationships and the characters and couldn’t put these books down!

and coming in at Number One is an author: Tillie Cole!

I 118discovered Tillie Cole this summer and have read six of her books so far. I absolutely adore her stories and definitely have to say that all of her books I’ve read have been my favorite this year.
