Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 books I Am Looking Forward to In 2018

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. ( and in the future it will be hosted by The Artsy Reader ( This weeks topic was the top 10 books we are looking forward to in 2018, it was a bit difficult just picking 10 books but I was able to narrow down the ones I was most excited for. These are my top 10 most anticipated releases for 2018:

  1. Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas. I would love to learn more about Catwoman. Also this book is being written by Sarah J. Maas so I have no doubt that it will be amazing.
  2. A Court of Frost and Starlight: by Sarah J. Maas. I honestly cannot wait to see what happens next in this world. This is probably my most anticipated release for next year. Sarah J. Maas also said that this book prepares you for what the spinoff continuation will be about so I am really excited.
  3. (Untitled) Throne of Glass #7 by Sarah J. Maas. This book doesn’t have a title yet but I cannot believe that the last Throne of Glass book is coming out next year. I really hope the series has a great conclusion and I can’t wait to see how everything turns out in the end.
  4. Obsidio: by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I loved Illuminae and Gemina so I have been greatly anticipating the last book in the trilogy. All the stories come together and it is told in such a unique stile. When this last book comes out I know I will be going to the bookstore.
  5. Wires and Nerve, Volume 2: Gone Rogue: by Marissa Meyer. I love the Lunar Chronicles and this is the second volume to the spinoff graphic novel series which follows Iko.
  6. The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth. This is the sequel to Carve the Mark and the conclusion to the duology. Since I own Carve the Mark and I am interested in the topic I hope that I really enjoy both books in this series.
  7. Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite authors and probably my most owned author. Some of the books I didn’t like as much as others but I have been anticipating this series and have been hearing nothing but good things.
  8. Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu. It’s a book about Batman so of course I am interested.
  9. Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I really enjoyed These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, so I hope I like this book as well.
  10. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsey Cummings. I am just really excited for this book. It is a Sci-fi book co-written by one of my favorite booktubers. Also I really enjoyed The Murder Complex by Lindsey Cummings so I can’t wait to read the book that they wrote together.

What are some of the books you are greatly anticipating in 2018. Comment down below. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are all having a great day.



The Festive Christmas Book Tag

First off I would like to say Merry Christmas to all of my readers. This tag was created by GirlReading (  Also I put spoilers for ACOTAR in Question 6 so if you haven’t read the whole series yet up to what is out don’t read the response for that question.

  1. A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with? Just the inner circle of the Night Court, from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas. I mean it would be awesome to spend Christmas dinner with them. Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Feyre, Rhysand, Amren, Nesta, I want to spend Christmas with all of them.
  2. A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift? Totally a bookmark. I like collecting them so I have a lot. Also I wouldn’t mind if one of my siblings got me one of those bookish subscription boxes for 1 month. Also a chapters gift card (like my one brother got me for Christmas is awesome.) Although I love getting bookmarks every time I go to Chapters, and I don’t care what type of bookmark it is I will most likely love it no matter what.
  3. A fictional character you think would make the perfect Christmas elf? Okay so I am going to say Anne from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, just because I think Anne would love to be a Christmas elf.
  4. Match a book to its perfect Christmas song? Silent Night and The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. I think if you read this book you can see why I picked it. Also I can’t really describe this one because of spoilers.
  5. Bah Humbug: A book or fictional character you have been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list? Rule by Jay Crownover. Okay this book is a New Adult book I am pretty sure. Well at least it is definitely adult and I did not like the main characters that much. Especially Rule at the very beginning, I was actually ready to DNF the book at one point.
  6. A book or fictional character you think deserves more appreciation and deserves to be on the nice list? Actually I am going to say Tamlin from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas. In the last book I think Tamlin redeemed himself. I mean without him Feyre would have died in the enemies war camp. Also without him Rhysand would have died at the end. At the end he wanted Feyre to be happy and that is why he saved Rhys. Also Feyre at the end of A Court of Wings and Ruin said that she wishes that Tamlin finds happiness in the future. So I totally believe that Tamlin redeemed himself and should be put on the nice list.
  7. Red, Gold, and Green: A book cover that has a wonderfully Christmasy feel to it? A Season for Miracles Twelve Tales of Christmas, which is a Dear Canada book written by several Dear Canada authors. Image result for dear canada a season for miracles twelve tales of Christmas
  8. A book or series you love so much that you want everyone to find it under their Christmas tree this year so they can read it and love it too? The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. This book series is a fairy tale retelling and I love it. I also adore all the characters so I think everyone should at least give this series a chance.

Thank you so much for reading and I understand that today is Christmas so if you want to do this tag today consider yourself tagged but if not Merry Christmas. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are all having a great day today.

New TBR Shelf

I decided to move all of my TBR books onto one shelf. Well the ones I wanted to get to the most out of all my TBR books at least. My classic TBR books are on a different shelf. My photo is not that great but it still shows the majority of what is on the shelf. Basically though I just wanted to do a short update about my TBR shelf so there really isn’t to much to say in this post. Also I have some books at my college dorm that are not on my TBR shelf at home. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are all having a great day.

2017 Reading Goals Review

Hey I can’t believe it is already time to review the goals that I set last year and prepare for my goals for this upcoming year. I had an okay reading year this year, but I had to learn how to get my reading time in now with University classes, as well as setting aside time to update my blog.

  1. My first goal last year was to set my goodreads reading challenge to 1 book. Now I am very happy with how this turned out. With it at 1 book I could still see my stats at the end of the year, but I didn’t feel pressured to try and reach my goal that was set. My goal was literally one book so if I didn’t reach that then I have the wrong kind of blog.
  2. My second goal was to review every book that I read. I didn’t do this. Honestly to go in depth about every single last book is a bit to much. I mean I don’t mind doing reviews but if I want to make the review good, and include everything I want to say I have to prepare for the review.
  3. My third goal was to read 10 2017 releases and I read 1/10 of those 2017 releases so that goal didn’t go so well. I mean I am currently reading another 2017 release that I will probably finish before the end of the year, but I still failed this goal.
  4. I wanted to reread 5 books and I reread 1 book which again is kind of disappointing but I will definitely be rereading more in 2018.
  5. I wanted to read all the books that I owned that I have not yet. I did not do this. Honestly I didn’t even think I could do this. I am always buying new books and my tbr is ever growing. Although I do hope to shorten it substantially next year.

Those were my reading goals that I had for 2017, and how I did at completing them (I failed). I hope all of your reading goals went well that you guys had set in 2017. Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you are all having a great day.

Why The Library Is Awesome

Hey today I just wanted to make a post about why I like the library so much especially since, I have been using the library more frequently. At the library you are able to get a library card for not that much money and it lasts all year. You can put holds and order in books to your current library if they do not have the book at the library itself. Also it helps save money because you are not buying the books you may have heard mixed reviews about, which you don’t want to commit to buying yet. I know that I have bought many hyped books, some of which I didn’t like that I was very disappointed about afterward. That doesn’t happen when using the library, well I mean you can still get disappointed that you didn’t like the book but at least you didn’t have to waste money and buy a book which you didn’t like. Many of the books I buy now are books which I have previously borrowed from the library and loved. Also if you are a student the library is an amazing place to study and hit the books, because it is quiet and free from the distractions that are at home. It can also just be fun to sit down and read a regular book in the library. I know at my library at home there are comfy couches people can sit at and read. I used to go to the library all the time with my best friend, and we would pick out books for each other and read some of the book. If we enjoyed the book we would take it out of the library, and then we would discuss the book after we finished it. Also you can get e-books and audiobooks from the library. Some library’s even have a phone app so you don’t have to go to the actual library to order the books in. If it is an e-book or an audiobook it just goes straight to your app. I just don’t understand why some people don’t like borrowing books from the library, and I want to inspire people to use the library system more often. I hope this post inspires some of you guys to go to your local library more if you don’t already.

I hope you all liked todays post. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are all having a great day.

Top 5 Wednesday: Top 5 Books of 2017

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey. ( and now it is hosted by Sam from thoughtsontomes ( This weeks topic is the top 5 books that you read in 2017.

  1. Is He or Isn’t He by John Hall. This was one of the first books I read this year and I loved it. When a new guy moves into there community Paige and her best friend want to find out if he is or isn’t gay. So they both try to entice him throughout the book in order to find out. I just adored this book and it is definitely one of my favorites for the year.
  2. The Glass Castle by Janette Walls. Now this is a memoir but it was absolutely fantastic. I had to read this for class and it was probably the best novel study that I ever had to do. I also watched the movie that was in theatres this year and really enjoyed that as well.
  3. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. This was such an amazing book and I cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out. I loved this so much and I cried while reading this book. It was magnificent.
  4. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh. This book was a Mulan retelling so I was excited for this book before it even came out. It was also the first Renee Ahdieh book that I ever read and it definitely wasn’t disappointing.
  5. Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This was actually one of the last books that I have read, and I loved it. It was just what I was looking to read at the time, and I flew through this book. I cannot wait to pick up the sequel and of course do a full review of the first book.

These were my top 5 favorite books that I read in 2017. What were your favorite books that you read? Comment down below. Thanks for reading and I hope you all are having a great day.

Champions At Fires End Review

I received a copy of this book in epub format in exchange for an honest review.

Title: Champions at fire’s end

By: Charlotte Jain

Rating: 3.5/5 stars


Seventeen-year-old best friends, April and Kyle, are thrown into the final battle of the Titan and Olympian war. Locked into an endless struggle, the Immortals have finally reached a solution – bestow mortal Champions with control over the elements to wage their final campaign.

Bestowed with control over fire and water, April and Kyle were raised by Immortals with a single purpose – win the war. After finally uncovering the remaining Champions’ identities, April and Kyle must launch themselves into their final battle for survival. Winner takes all. But the Immortals are growing restless, and time is running out.

Did it perpetuate healthy ideals? I mean other than the fact that part of the premise of the book is they have to fight for their survival I believe it did perpetuate healthy ideals. Friendship was also a big part in this book I found.

Did it have adequate representation? Yes, the chapters were told in different perspectives and I love reading books where you get to follow more than one character so I really enjoyed this element.

Did it teach me something or make me think? I was literally the same age as the characters when I read this so I thought about what it would be like if this was me, and I had to do and go through what the characters were going through.

Were the characters memorable? Yes. I enjoyed reading about the characters and how they used their powers. Also the character Kyle and April finding who the other Champions were. I also liked reading about the gods and getting to see them in the book.

Was the plot clever? I really liked the concept of this book and thought it was very unique. Also I liked how the book came to its conclusion.

I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading books which include mythological factors. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you are all having a great day.

Currently reading book tag

Hey guys sorry for not posting very often. I have been really busy lately and have not had the chance to read lately. I thought it might be nice to do a book tag though so why not? By the way I do not know who the creator of this tag was but if you know can you please comment it down below.

First I will mention what books I am currently reading.  I am reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab, and Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas. I am also finishing up Champions: At Fire’s End by Charlotte Jain which I received a free copy of via epub to review. So far though what I can say about the first book in the Champions series is it is like Avatar the Last Air bender meets Greek mythology. I am really excited to finally post my review of that book up. It will probably be up around December 20 after I finish doing my final exams.

How many books do you normally read at once?

Several. Not even kidding sometimes I read one book at a time but that is usually not the case. If I get bored somewhere while reading a book but I still feel like reading I will honestly pick up another book, and read that.

If you are reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?

I typically switch books if I reach the end of the chapter and I am kind of feeling bored with the book. Also if I finish a part of a book I will switch to another books sometimes then. I also read a chapter of each book I am currently reading until one books chapter I am currently on grabs my interest.

Do you ever switch bookmarks while your partway through a book?

No. Although I collect bookmarks so I have a wide variety to choose from.

Where do you keep the books you are currently reading?

On my bedside table, because most of the time I read is when I am in bed.

What time of day do you  spend the most time reading? 

Whenever I am not studying, or going to class. So usually I read before bed. Or in the hallways while waiting for a lecture.

How long do you typically read in one sitting? 

1-2 hours. Although I have also pulled all nighters while reading books. I read City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare in one day when I first read it. I started it in the morning and finished it the next morning with breaks to eat.
Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off? 

I leave the dust jacket on. I have lost the dust jacket for a book I read once when I took the dust jacket off so I leave them on. Plus the dust jackets have the title on them and sometimes people have come up to me and talked to me about the book I was reading when they saw what it was.

What position do you mainly use to read? 

I read in a sitting up position. I also have a reading pillow back at home which I love.

Do you take the book you are currently reading everywhere you go?

No. I am just scared of forgetting it somewhere or something. Sometimes I bring my book, depends where and how long I am going to be there.

How often do you update Goodreads on the book you are currently reading? 

I try to do it as often as I can. For my copy of the first book in the Champions series it was hard because I could not identify the page numbers on epub. Although I really have to update that ones progress. I won’t probably update my rating until my review is ready to go up though.


Thanks so much for reading. Comment down below books you are currently reading, and/or books you want me to read and review. I try to respond to every comment I get. I hope you are all having a good day.

Queen Of Shadows Review

Image result for queen of shadowsQueen of Shadows

By: Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5/5 stars


The queen has returned.

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.

The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

Did it perpetuate healthy ideals? I think it is pretty hard to do this in a fantasy world which is filled with death and destruction at the moment. I do like the relationship between Aelin and Rowan, as well as her cousing Aedion. I also like what Aelin and Chaol were able to accomplish at the end of the book.

Did it have adequate representation? This book is told in the perspective of both the male and female characters. I love the way that Maas is able to represent her characters throughout all of her books including this one.

Did it teach me something or make me think? Yes, I think if a person reads something and doesn’t learn anything from it that it is kind of sad. I took a lot from this book which describes what some of my favorite quotes are. Honestly so far I think that this book is my favorite book in the Throne of Glass series, with Heir of Fire coming in at a close second.

Were the characters memorable? Yes. At this point I am in love with all the characters including some of the characters we didn’t know to well until this book. I cannot wait to start Empire of Storms.

Was the plot clever? Yes, and the ending of this book did in fact surprise me. That is one of the reasons why I can’t wait to get my hands on empire of storms.

Favorite Quotes:

  • “Fire-breathing bitch-queen.”
  • “You make me want to live, Rowan. Not survive; not exist. Live.”
  • “She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph.”
  • “She looked at them, at the three males who meant everything—more than everything. Then she smiled with every last shred of courage, of desperation, of hope for the glimmer of that glorious future. “Let’s go rattle the stars.”
  • “If you’re a monster, I’m a monster.”
  • “They joined hands.
    So the world ended.
    And the next one began.”
  • “Sometimes there won’t be a right choice, just the best of several bad options.”
  • “She was a whirling cloud of death, a queen of shadows, and these men were already carrion.”
  • “They were infinite. They were the beginning and the ending; they were eternity. The king standing before them gaped as the shield of flame died out to reveal Aelin and Dorian, hand in hand, glowing like newborn gods as their magic entwined.”
  • “Thirty minutes later, Rowan was still staring up at the ceiling, teeth gritted as he calmed the roaring in
    his veins that was steadily shredding through his self-control.
    That gods-damned nightgown.
    He was in such deep, unending shit.”
  • “To whatever end.”
  • “But she was her own champion now.”
  • “Where will we go?”
    “I hear hell is particularly nice at this time of year.”
  • “Elegant, feminine, and utterly wild. Warm, and steadfast—unbreakable, his queen.”
  • “Tell me that we’ll get through tomorrow. Tell me that we’ll survive the war. Tell me—” She swallowed hard. “Tell me that even if I lead us all to ruin, we’ll burn in hell together.”
  • “It’s Aelin now,” she snapped as loudly as she dared. “Celaena Sardothien doesn’t exist anymore.”

Those were some of my favorite quotes from the book. Thank you so much for reading feel free to comment down below a book you want me to review or if you just want to discuss this book. I hope you  are all having a great day.
