Happy Wednesday!

The week seems to be going by pretty quickly! Here are the books in my life over the last week and coming week.

Image-3

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
Slasher Girls & Monster Boys

My younger sister let me borrow Fablehaven two months ago, so I decided to finally read it now. I haven’t started it yet, but I’m going to start it today. It sounds like a fun read and I love the book cover so much. I have also been slowing pushing through Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. I honestly haven’t been reading it that much though.

Image-2

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I just finished Cinder last night and it was a really good book, but I did have a little problem with it. I’ll have a review up in a day or two. I decided to binge read the series in November, so once I finish Fablehaven then it’ll be back to the Lunar Chronicles. And with that…

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

I am starting Scarlet next and I’m excited to read it! I’ve been waiting way too long to read this series and now I can finally see what everyone is talking about.

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? What are you currently reading, recently finished, reading next? Feel free to link me to your WWW Wednesday posts as well!

I posted my October book haul a couple days ago, so feel free to check it out if you’re interested in seeing the books I got this month; Book Haul||October.

I hope you have a great Wednesday! ❤

Hey! 🙂

I’ve been in kind of a reading slump, which I have mentioned a couple other times. So I haven’t been reading as much or as fast as I would like. I think I may be getting out of it though, so that’s good! Let’s hope I can finish off October strong and knock out some more of my Halloweenie TBR!

CURRENTLY READING:

1359772819364719

Asylum by Madeleine Roux
Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by Various Authors

I am currently reading Asylum and so far it’s interesting. I’m not really that far into it though. Hopefully I’ll finish it before the end of the week. It sounds promising and there are some creepy pictures in it too! I read the first two short stories in Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, which were really cool. The first one was extra creepy, because it’s something that can really happen in real life! The second one was a creepy Alice in Wonderland inspired one, which I loved! I can’t wait to get to the Leigh Bardugo story! I am one away from getting there, so I may read the next one soon. I’ve been reading one of the short stories in-between each of the books I have been reading this month. Slasher Girls will probably be a book that I don’t finish right away, because I want to switch between that book and other books I hope to read this month. I do want to finish it in October though.

RECENTLY FINISHED:

1301851424396858

The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

I just finished The Hallowed Ones yesterday and that book was SO SO good! I loved the whole idea behind it and I loved how it played out. I recently wrote a review on it and you can check that out here; The Hallowed Ones. I also recently finished The Dead House, but I didn’t really like it and thought that it wasn’t as creepy as everyone was saying it was. I fell for all the hype and sadly I was let down BIG time. You can check out my review for this one here; The Dead House.

READING NEXT:

2526392724120519

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco
Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

I’m not entirely sure which one that I want to read next, but I am leaning more toward The Girl from the Well only because it’s an e-book I checked out from the library and I only have it for about 13 more days and it’s also pretty short compared to Library of Souls. I do hope to get to Library of Souls this month though. My older sister is currently reading my e-book of it and I don’t want to read it at the same time and accidentally lose her page or accidentally take my Kindle to her page and see spoilers! I’m excited about them both though!

I am currently using my Mary (from Hocus Pocus) bookmark as I read Asylum. Isn’t she the cutest?

Hi!

I actually had a good reading week with finishing some books and audiobooks. It hasn’t been the best month and I know I’ve mentioned that quite a bit! Here’s what I’ve had going on as far as books in the last week or so…

Currently Reading:

142561406833745 (7)136251

The Water Travelers by Daniel Waltz
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

I’m not too far into either of these, but I am excited to read them. The Water Travelers is pretty interesting so far and I can’t wait to read more! You should also go check out Daniel’s blog OVER HERE! I haven’t exactly started Deathly Hallows yet, but I am as soon as I post this! It’ll be the audiobook I listen to this week. I’m sad to see the series end, BUT I still have the movies to watch. I’ve only watched the first two so far.

Recently Finished:

27451183043221

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Shelbie sent me a copy of The Great Gatsby, because she knew I wanted to read it. Sadly, I didn’t like it as much as I hoped I would. I was confused a lot of the time. There were some times where I did enjoy it though. I’m going to watch the movie and see if I like the movie better. Dumplin’ was such a great book and I’ll link you below to my review in case you missed it or want to check it out. I loved Half-Blood Prince! There was so much going on and I really enjoyed it. I even cried a few times. 😦 Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favorite. I’ve said that a million times, lol.

Reading Next:

question

I have no idea what I will be reading next, to be honest. I do know it’ll hopefully be a spooky one for October! And maybe Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I think Shelbie and I are going to read it together at some point.

I am off to work! Here are a few posts I’ve done this week linked below.

Hi 🙂

The week seems to be going by pretty quickly. I’ve been pretty tired this week. Trying to go to sleep at a decent time has been a complete fail over the last few months. Sigh. Also found out some not so good news yesterday, so that sucks. BUT, I always try to stay positive about everything, so I am not too worried about things. Anyway though! I decided to do a WWW post, because it’s been a little while since I’ve done one.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Mosquitoland by David Arnold

The Knife of Never Letting Go is such a strange book, but I am really enjoying it. I am really excited to continue to read it later today! You know, because being adult can get in the way of reading a lot of the time. I’m about 70% finished with the Mosquitoland audiobook. The audiobook is good, it has a good narrator. The story itself is alright. I’m not blown away with it like everyone seems to be. I swear to you though, something must be wrong with me. Because most of the books I’ve been reading haven’t been blowing me away lately! Sigh.

Recently Finished:

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen – Review.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh – Review.

Remember how I just said that books lately haven’t been blowing me away? Here are two more examples! I did enjoy these books overall as a whole, but honestly, not as much as I would have hoped. And certainly not as much as so many others have loved and raved about these books. Linked above are my reviews for both.

Reading Next:

Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

I will definitely be getting to Shattered Blue next as it is a Netgalley book that I have to read and review. I tried starting it, but I was feeling slumpish and decided to put it aside. It sounds like a really good book though, so I am looking forward to it. My next audiobook may be The Cuckoo’s Calling. It sounds like a really good book, so I may give it a chance.

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think about them? What are you currently reading? Finished reading? Reading next?

I am honestly pretty overwhelmed with the amount of books that I want to read that I own. Lately, I’ve been staring at my bookcases and my Kindle and I just look away. There are so many and I bought so many this month. I don’t want to say it’s making reading less fun, but in a way it kind of is. Something I love to do shouldn’t feel so overwhelming, you know? I think next month I am going to try to chill with the buying books and plus, I kind of have to with how things are going right now in other parts of my life.

Anyway, I’ve been slowly working on my August wrap up post and my August book haul post. I am currently waiting for some books, but I don’t think they will all be here before August ends. I know the majority of them will be Friday. The other four I’m not sure about. I have to get off here and get to work though. I hope you all have an awesome day! ❤

Hi 🙂

This WWW may look a little similar to last week’s, because nothing really has changed other than the books moving into different spots. 😛 I guess that’s a good thing though, because it means I’m reading! I apologize in advance! I’ll write new things about the books though, so it’s not completely the same.

Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

I am still working through the Order of the Phoenix, but it will be finished today! I know I said before that I haven’t really been in the mood for audiobooks this month, so it’s been taking me awhile to finish this one! I am actually enjoying this one so much more than I did the Goblet of FireBlood of My Blood has been everything I hoped it would be so far. I am about 40% into the book and I am loving it so much! I probably could have had it finished by now, but I keep delaying it since I don’t want it to end!! I keep stopping after every chapter to do something else, sigh. I will definitely be finishing it within the next day or two though. It’s just so hard to let go of this series! It’s been awhile since I have absolutely fell in love with a series like this. The last one was Penryn & the End of Days, but even then, I don’t even think it has made me feel as much as I Hunt Killers has; super close though!

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

The last book I finished was The Wicked Will Rise. I did a super mini-review of it OVER HERE! It was really enjoyable and I am excited that I finally got around to reading it. New characters introduced, more adventure, and chaos. It did leave me a little confused toward the end, but overall it was a really good read. I am looking forward to the next book to get answers to my unanswered questions!

Reading Next:

1879898325953603

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

Finally going to pick up The Wrath and the Dawn for the read-along. I was going to do it after The Wicked, but then I decided to go with Blood of My Blood because I knew I would fly through that one. I am really stoked to read it, because I’ve heard so many good things about it and it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for way too long now! I was approved for Shattered Blue on Netgalley, so I may try to get that one read after The Wrath. I do have Siege and Storm begging me to pick it up though, so we will see what happens!

Hey 🙂

It’s Wednesday, which means the week is half over. I am excited about that, because I love my weekends! I figured I would do a WWW post since I haven’t done one in awhile. I’ll just jump right into it.

Lucky Day by Barry Lyga
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

I am halfway done with the last novella for the Jasper Dent series, which is exciting! So far I am really liking it. I am listening to the Order of the Phoenix audiobook, but I haven’t in a few days. I will definitely finish it this week though. I haven’t exactly started The Wicked Will Rise yet, but I should be hopefully today or tomorrow.

Blood Boy by Barry Lyga
Neutral Mask by Barry Lyga
Career Day by Barry Lyga
No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige
The Witch Must Burn by Danielle Paige
The Wizard Returns by Danielle Paige
Heart of Tin by Danielle Paige

My month of novellas turned out to be four days of novellas, because I finished them all in four days (besides the last one I am reading now). I read all the novellas for the Dorothy Must Die series. They were all pretty good except Heart of Tin. That was torture, to be honest. The Tin Man is annoying, so annoying! He acted like a love sick twelve year old girl the entire book. I also read the Jasper Dent novellas, which were pretty good. It was interesting to read about the other characters, but I will forever love Jasper.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga

I will definitely be picking up The Wrath and the Dawn after The Wicked Will Rise for the read-along that I am joining. After that will probably be Blood of My Blood. The last book in the Jasper Dent (I Hunt Killers) series. I am so sad to see it end, but I am dying to find out what is going on!!

Hi! 🙂

It’s Wednesday already! That’s actually not too bad of a thing. It means the week is going by quicker and closer to the weekend! 😛 I’ve been actually having really crazy days at work over the last two weeks, so lately I’ve been really looking forward to the weekends more. Onto the books!

Game by Barry Lyga
Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall

I love both of these books so much and I’m only a little over half done with them both! Game will keep you constantly on the edge of your seat. It’s the sequel to I Hunt Killers and it’s just as amazing as I Hunt Killers is. Barry Lyga is amazing! Whistling Past the Graveyard is so good! It’s so sad, but so amazing at the same time. I am really enjoying this audiobook so much! I will be doing a review of it in the next day or two. So, I started Paper Towns by John Green, but I was just so bored with it that I put it back on my bookshelf and decided to just read it another time.

My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher
From Norvelt to Nowhere by Jack Gantos
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece was such an amazing book! I really enjoyed it and I also loved the fact that it was read by David Tennant. You can see more about what I thought on this book over here. I also listened to the audiobooks of From Norvelt to Nowhere and Hush, Hush. Norvelt, was a decent book. It had me laughing and everything, but I didn’t give it a higher rating than a 3, because I liked the first book a lot better than this one. Hush, Hush was okay. I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I found a lot of the characters to be rather annoying, to be honest. I decided to include Made You Up in this post, because it’s an amazing book (see more about what I thought of this book over here) and it’s the last physical book that I read. I’ve been listening to more audiobooks than physically reading books this month. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump when it comes to reading the books myself. I think that Game has definitely been helping with that though, because I’ve been flying through it any chance I get!

More Than This by Patrick Ness
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I got the e-book version of More Than This from my library, so I plan to start that after Game. I am really excited about it, because it sounds like such an awesome book! I will also be listening to the audiobook for What Happened to Goodbye. I’ve never read (or listened) to a Sarah Dessen book and I know so many people love her books, so I figured I would give this one a try as my next audiobook.

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think about them? What are you currently reading? Finished reading? Reading next?

You can expect a book haul post in the next week or so. I’ve been really bad this week with buying books. I was actually doing really good this month so far until Monday and yesterday, OOPS! Anyway though, I am off to work now! I hope you all have an awesome Wednesday! Bye! ❤
