Birthday Book Haul!!!

My birthday was on the ninth of September and of course I got some books! So I thought I’d share them with you! You can click the book title to go to the goodreads page if you’re interested in knowing anything about these books!

Heartstopper Vol 1 and Vol 4 by Alice Oseman

When I first read these books, I borrowed them from the library. I absolutely fell in LOVE with them and knew that I have to have my own copies. So I bought myself volume 1, and my best friend got me volume 4 because they’re amazing!

Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

This is the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series. I plan to do a binge read of this series sometime soon, and this is the only book I didn’t own. I read the first three books awhile ago, but never continued on despite that fact that I enjoyed them. I don’t remember much though, so I definitely need to reread the first three!

Still Beating by Jennifer Hartman

I have never read anything by this author, but I’ve heard nothing but complete rave about this book, so when I saw it on ebook for only $1.99 I knew this was my chance to see what all the hype is about for it. I heard it’s a very dark, but great read. And they recommend checking the trigger warnings beforehand, so that was what I did.

And those are the books I bought/recieved for my birthday! What books have you bought/recieved lately?

Romance Books To Read This Summer

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

I recently read Red, White & Royal Blue by this author and really enjoyed it. So I’ve been wanting to read another story by them!

Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about this series, so I’ve been wanting to check it out asap!

Beach Read by Emily Henry

This book has been on my radar for a while now!

Mango Summer by Agay Llanera

Honestly, I haven’t heard of this book before. I just randomly came across it and the synopsis sounds very cute so I decided to add it to my to be read pile!

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

I keep borrowing this book from my library, but never get around to reading it before I have to return it! I hope to get to it this summer!

These are just the romance books I want to get to this summer. I also have a list of other books as well that I will probably share soon! What romance books do you have on your summer list?

Sisyphus: The Myth Ending!

So I just really needed to talk about my thoughts on the ending of this show. I have a lot of things going on in my mind and I just wanted to share them.

Is Seo Hae real or is Tae Sul hallucinating her?


I just don’t know…she could be real or not.

My thoughts…

I think he remembers her because he did put the code in for the uploader, and I believe the uploader was still made, but not October 31st like it was always made before. It was delayed, which changed the past since the bombs didn’t go off that day. So I think everything that happened in this time became the new past and that’s why Tae Sul remembers Seo Hae.

Now was she there? I just don’t know. She could be a hallucination. Instead of him seeing his brother, he sees her. Or she could actually be there. There could be a new problem and she found another journal and found him again.

Also with Tae Sul killing himself at the end…to me it made sense. He said he knew this was going to happen but kept putting it off because he wanted to be with Seo Hae for as long as possible. To me that makes sense. Obviously he would do everything in his power to change it this time, so putting off killing himself for the last moment makes sense.

He also told Seo Hae to find him no matter what it takes. No matter when, to find him. So he knew he would see her again.

As for Sigma, I feel like Won Ju(Sigma) will still be evil, but he has changed in this new time. He became the way he was because no one cared for him and no one showed him kindness. However, in the final episode, because of Seo Hae father(who showed him kindness and that he does care) he did change. Now he still hates Tae Sul, as we saw from the ending, but I do think he has changed(probably not much though). I also think Eddie Kim will become the “new Sigma“.

Obviously this is all up to interpretation. Normally I’m not a fan of open endings, but with this particular drama I’ve seen a lot of different theories online and I’ve had the best time reading them. They’re many different possibilities and I really enjoyed seeing what people came up with! I just wanted to share my thoughts because I keep thinking about it and just needed to talk about it.

As I said earlier, these are just my thoughts on the ending of Sisyphus: The Myth. I think I may do a whole review of the drama as well!

#FridayReads [4]

Today, and this weekend, I’ll be rereading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It has been quite awhile since I last read this book, so I thought a reread was due! Plus its 10 year bookaversary is coming up!

City_of_Bones

When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

For those of you who don’t know, this is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The same series the TV show Shadowhunters is based off of. Have you read this series? Do you watch the show?

Book Review || Saga Volume 5

Title- Saga25451555
Author- Brian K. Vaughan
Pages- 152
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 Gwtumblr_ncbd1dtkcz1tv4k5po1_500endolyn, 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!

 

TBR || Graphic Novels

So I wen51veWQRX2wL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_t to the library today and picked up a bunch of graphic novels that I’ve been hearing great things about and wanted to check out!

I’ve been hearing great things about this graphic novels series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez and so I’ve been very interested in this! It seems like it will be a creepy read….I’m hoping!

Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. Home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all…

As most people are, I’m a fan of the Saga series! I just started reading these last year, and I finally got Saga Volume 5! I really wanted to reread Volume 4 so I could do a quick recap, but my library didn’t have it in. Either way, I’m so excited to get to this one!

Multiple storylines collide in this cosmos-spanning new volume. While Gwendolyn and Lying Cat risk everything to find a cure for The Will, Marko makes an uneasy alliance with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies. Collects Saga #25-30.

I’ve been really interested in the Rat Queens graphic novels since I saw some booktubers haul them. I was glad to see my library had 3 volumes in!

Who are the Rat Queens?
A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit.
It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

The Wicked + The Divine are the ones I think I’m the most excited to read! They seem like stories I wold absolutely love!

Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

Now, I normally don’t make TBRs. It’s not because I don’t like them, because I always LOVE seeing what other people want to read. I don’t normally do these because I NEVER, EVER stick to them. However, I really want to get back into reading this month. I haven’t read anything since February. I plan to set aside a few books that I REALLY want to get to, and will hopefully be able to fly through this month. I don’t plan on getting to all these this month, but that would be amazing if I did!

  1. Sweet Hope- Tillie Cole
  2. Lady Midnight- Cassandra Clare
  3. We Were Liars- E. Lockhart
  4. The Choice- Nicholas Sparks
  5. A Court of Thorns and Roses- Sarah J. Maas
  6. The 5th Wave- Rick Yancey

Cover Reaction- Deep Redemption

This is the fourth book in the Hades Hangmen series! The cover was revealed yesterday, and I was so excited to see it! Like the other covers in this series, I’m intrigued, especially with who could be hiding behind the tree? tumblr_n2amb4vRsJ1qj4315o1_500

As of now, a synopsis hasn’t been release! What I do know is that we can expect this to be like the other ones in this series. A dark, but beautiful story that breaks your heart mends it together, just to rip it to shreds again! And NO I’m not being dramatic!

I’m so excited to read this story on July 12th, 2016! And if you haven’t read the previous stories, you should check them out! If you have read them, you can check out my reviews below!
