So this Friday, and the rest of the weekend I plan on reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. A classic of course! This is for the readawatchalong that is going on in the month of December hosted by Maureen. You can check out the announcement video here: Harry Xmas To You
What are you reading?
Lately, I’ve been hearing so many people talk about audiobooks, and how much they enjoy them. It seems as if they’re getting more attention lately, and of course that’s not a bad thing. In fact it’s a great thing, because it means more people are reading!
However, for me, I could never enjoy an audiobook. Why? Mainly because I could never focus on the story when listening to them. I tried to listen to three audiobooks, and within the first few chapters, I would try to remember what I heard, and it was like my mind was blank. I couldn’t remember anything that was said.
A lot of people talk about how they listen to audiobooks on there commute to school, or work, during breaks, cleaning, working out, whenever they have free time. I think that’s fantastic. In a way I’m jealous of people who are able to do that. I tried listening to an audiobook while cleaning, and I could not concentrate on the story at all. It ended up frustrating me to no end.
I’ve come to the conclusion that audiobooks are just not for me, and of course that’s okay. I wish they were though. While reading, I cant be doing anything else. I just have to focus on the story. That’s why I’ll be sticking with my physical and e-copies.
How do you feel about audiobooks? Do they not work for you? Do you love them? If so, what has been your favorite audiobook that you listened to?
Author- Brian K. Vaughan
Rating- 4 out of 5
Companion/Sequel/Other- 5th Volume
Marko as aligned himself with Prince IV, as both of them try to find there families. It’s a very uneasy alliance as they both seem to hate each other. However, when you have a common goal you try and work together. I really enjoyed there arc together. Mainly because we got to see Marko, and Ghus(whom I adore). We got to see Marko high as all hell, and get a view into his past.
Alana is with Klara, as they’re being kept by Dengo who also has the kidnapped Princeling and Hazel. He has called the Revolution to where they were to make a deal with them. Although nothing goes as planned and all hell breaks loose!
We also follow Gwendolyn, Sophie, Lying Cat, The Brand, searching for a cure to save The Will! Trust me when I say, shit gets really weird in this storyline!
Ohhhhh and I just have one thing to say….Dragon jizz….Dragon freakin jizz. That is all.
As always this story has beautiful artwork, and amazing writing. The humor is on point, and the characters are wonderful! Throughout the whole story your so invested and just needing to know what happens next. As always, we are left on a cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to read the next volume!

Saga by Brian K Vaughan– This was recommended to me by a bunch of people on Booktube! I’m so glad that I picked this series up!
Cinder by Marissa Meyer– This was recommended to me by one of my best friends. I’ve currently read the first two books in the series.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer– This was recommended to me by one of my best friends in high school when I was 15 or 16 years old.
Dark Lover( Black Dagger Brotherhood) by J R Ward– This was recommended to me by a couple of people on GoodReads, and I was glad that I pick these up. I read the first 3 in the series first and I still have many more to go.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater– This is one of the books that was recommeded to me that I DIDN’T like. I didn’t finish this book, but I still own it because I LOVE the cover.
So I’m getting back into reading and I thought I would make a post about the books I want to read is month.
I really want to reread Twilight by Stephenie Meyer this month! It has been awhile since I’ve reread this book, and Lately I’ve been in the mood for it.
I want to get to Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children this month since the movie is coming, or already is out. It seems like it would be an interesting read(and I’ve had this book on my shelf for some time now!)
At the end of this month, I’m hoping to participate in Deweys 24 hour readathon. I’m going to be getting some graphic novels from my library for that, but as of right now, I’m not sure which ones. However, I do want to read Saga Vol. 6!
Those are what I’m hoping to get to this month. What are you reading?
It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sorry about 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 Galactica(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.
