Leap Year Book Tag

Image result for february 29 leap year

Hello Lovelies! I saw this book tag going around and I figured that since a Leap Year only comes every four years, it would be a while before I could do it again so… Why not?! Let’s just jump right in!

This is going to seem like a really cheesy answer, but I have to go with City of Bones. This was the series that got me into reading and it has to do with that something extra that was in it. I fell in love instantly and I know I wouldn’t be the reader I am today without this book.

I was really afraid to read The Cruel Prince for SOOOOO long. It was really hyped up and a lot of people’s favorites and I was really scared that I wasn’t going to like it. I put off reading it and then I finally took the plunge in September. I ended up being partially right because, while I liked certain aspects of this book, I wasn’t as blown away as I wanted to be.

If you would like to, you can read my reviewย here where I go into further detail on my feelings on this book.

The fourth book I read this year was Stolen By Them (Between Rebels #1). I actually really enjoyed this book, a lot more than I thought I was going to. It had a spin on villains and heroes that I really liked and I encourage you to check it out if you’re into RH or sci-fi!

This question ended up really working out. The 6th book on my 3rd shelf isย Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) and the 6th book after that is Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1). Both of these belong to some of my favorite series ever so I’m glad they were the answers to this question.

  1. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson : I keep saying, “I’m going to read Brandon Sanderson this year”… and it just doesn’t happen. Maybe if I give myself four years it finally will ๐Ÿคฃ
  2. Red Sister (Book of the Ancestor #1) : I’m hoping to read this series soon, I just keep putting it off because I feel like I haven’t been ready for it. Now that the series is complete and the spin-off is coming out, I feel like I can finally start it. I definitely think that I’ll have read this by next Leap Year.
  3. A Kiss of Shadows (Merry Gentry #1) : I have read Laurell K. Hamilton’s other series and I loved it. This series is more fae focused than the other one so I’m really expecting to love it. I just haven’t been in the mood to pick it up quite yet.
  4. And I Darken (The Conqueror’s Saga #1) : This book has been on my TBR for so long that I just hope that I will have read it within the next four years.

One of the bookish things I like to stay away from is the controversies, particularly the ones on Twitter. I feel like people get really fired up on social media and a simple argument becomes a situation where a bunch of outside people get involved and then it just turns into this giant dumpster fire. And I definitely don’t want any part of that.

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag { 2019 }

Screenshot_2019-06-30 Artstudio โ€“ Dashboard.png

Hello Lovelies! And Happy 4th of July to all of my fellow Americans!!! We’re halfway through 2019 and, as usual, this tag is floating around every where again. I’m really excited to get to participate this year along with everyone else and I hope you enjoy!


๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐๐จ๐จ๐ค ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ’๐ฏ๐ž ๐‘๐ž๐š๐ ๐’๐จ ๐…๐š๐ซ

I couldn’t possibly pick just one book for this question, so I decided to pick a best new book and a best reread.

40660140. sy475 Sunshine and Bullets was a book I read in February of this year and it captivated me. I could not put it down and I flew through it. I can not give this book higher praise and I am SO glad that I read it.

 

 

 

17927395. sy475

Was there any possible way that A Court of Mist and Fury wasn’t my favorite reread?! This book is my favorite of all time and I could not love it more if I tried. Each time I read it, I fall in love with the characters all over again and my feelings for the series only gets stronger.

43802161. sy475

As soon as I saw this question, I knew that there could be no other answer than Remember You This Way. Let me tell you, after reading the first book in this trilogy, I didn’t possibly think that I could love it more… but this book proved me SOOOO wrong! It was phenomenal and I need the next book like I need air!!!

I need to read this book so bad it isn’t even funny. I have been dying to get my hands on it for months now and I finally went to my library to check it out and put it on hold. Unfortunately for me, that was two weeks ago and my friend Raven that works at the library decided to inform me yesterday that she’s currently reading this monster of a book… so I’m not gonna get my hands on it anytime soon! ๐Ÿ˜‚

 

30075662. sy475

I saw the trailer for this book a couple months ago and thought it was interesting, but ended up brushing it off because it’s a sci-fi and those aren’t typically my thing. Well… after reading The Illuminae Files very recently, I’ve realized that sci-fi is my thing when it’s by these two wonderful authors!! I want to read this book SO badly and it is at the tip top of my “Book Buying List”.

 

36314220. sy475

As a GIANT Cassandra Clare fan, I am ashamed to say that I haven’t read any of the books she has released so far this year. I know… It’s bad. I just haven’t been in the right mood for her since the disappointment that was Queen of Air and Darkness… BUT I have every intention of reading this collection of stories as soon as I am in the mood for them!

 


๐Œ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐€๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐‘๐ž๐ฅ๐ž๐š๐ฌ๐ž(๐ฌ) ๐…๐จ๐ซ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐’๐ž๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ ๐‡๐š๐ฅ๐Ÿ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐˜๐ž๐š๐ซ

This question was harder to answer than it would typically be because my top two favorite authors, Sarah J. Maas & Cassandra Clare, aren’t releasing any books for the rest of this year. After thinking real hard though, I was able to come up with these answers:

24951850. sy475

I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. I devoured the first book last year and I just need the next one! I need more of Luc and Evie’s story ASAP!

 

 

 

43174656. sy475

I recently binge read the rest ofย the Lords of the Underworld series and I could not be more hyped for this book to come out in December! I love Fox and I want her story SOOOO bad!

 

 


๐๐ข๐ ๐ ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ƒ๐ข๐ฌ๐š๐ฉ๐ฉ๐จ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ

25026912. sy475

This question was SO easy because I just read this book and the disappointment from reading it is still very fresh in my mind…

After waiting two years for this book, I was finally able to read it when I checked it out at my library. Imagine my disappointment when it was a complete flop of a book. I can’t even begin to describe how upset I was that that was the book I had waited so long for.

My review can be found here if you want to read more into why I didn’t like it.

23395680. sy475

OKAY! After years of people recommending this series to me and hyping it up SO much, I decided to give this book a shot… and I was shocked to my core over how good it is! I read it so quickly and immediately jumped into the next book. I am getting ready to start the third one and I couldn’t be more excited.

After my answer to the last question, this answer shouldn’t come as a surprise. I just love this co-author duo so much and, after starting Jay’s Nevernight series, I couldn’t be more convinced about the talent that these two have.

 

C.R. Jane

I fell in love with C.R. Jane’s writing when I read The Sound of Us and I fell even deeper when I read the Fated Wings series. I just adore her books so much and I always look forward to her next book.

Nik Malikov from Gemina! Anyone that knows me knows that I have a soft spot for morally grey male characters… and Nik certainly is that. I could not love him more!

Eva from Fated Wings has easily become one of my favorite characters. She has just been through so much and how she still has so much compassion and forgiveness in heart after all that has been done to her is beyond me.

This book tore me up inside. Xhex just goes through so much and I have no idea how she made it through. Just reading about it made me go through emotional distress.. I can’t imagine actually being involved.

For those that don’t know, Paris and Sienna’s story starts developing in book two of this series… but you don’t get their full story until book nine. So, I was understandably very happy when I finally got to this book!

Not only is this book absolutely GORGEOUS, but I also received it signed which made it all the more special to me! I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books and, I have to say, this has to be my favorite cover so far!

30295312. sx318

I need to get to this book SO bad! I just have this feeling that I’m going to finish it and then I will be dying for the next one which doesn’t come out until late next year…

 

 

 

43237961

I have been wanting to read this book since I finished the first two installments. I ended up waiting months and months for this book and, now that it’s out, I just haven’t had the motivation to read it. I think that this mostly because this is the final book and I’m just not ready for it to end!!

 

 

68428. sy475 I keep saying I’m going to read a Brandon Sanderson book, but then I never get around to actually reading one. BUT THIS IS THE YEAR!! I’m going to do it!!!

Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Hello Lovelies! I have been seeing this tag what seems like everywhere recently and, even though I wasn’t tagged by anyone, I really wanted to do it for myself. I wanted to do it this week because it feels like spring is literally flying by and summer will be here before I know it! I’m scared that if I don’t do this tag now, I’ll completely forget about it/won’t have time to do it.

*SPOILERS FOR QUEEN OF AIR AND DARKNESS!!!*

While there are MANY scenes in this book that I wish I could rewrite, I would have to pick the scene where the Cohort takes over Alicante and all of the other Shadowhunters are forced to leave. That scene had me screaming in anger for about twenty minutes because I hated everything about it. Honestly, Alec should have let them all kill themselves!! I KNOW that they are going to be a problem in The Wicked Powers and I just don’t want to deal with the Cohort or Zara anymore.

*SPOILERS FOR THE AFTER SERIES!!*

Honestly, after Tessa and Hardin make up in the beginning of After We Fell, the story should have been over. That part could have been tacked on to the end of the first book and that should have just been the end of their story. Everything after that is just over-dramatic scenes that were really unnecessary. The story was just entirely too drawn out. The second book on is just about them fighting over the same old things and breaking up, only to get back together again.

I have mixed feelings on this series, the last book being one of them. The entire final book felt really unnecessary to me and way too drawn out. This series could have been shortened to three books and it would have been fine. It also ended entirely too cleanย  and felt like a waste of my time.

โˆดย  A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1) by V.E. Schwab โˆด

I felt like this book tried too hard to convey the “strong female character who doesn’t need a man” trope. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that trope. It’s just that Lila came off naive and full of herself and she ended up getting in even more trouble than she was originally in because she “didn’t need any help”. It was frustrating and probably why I keep putting off reading the second book.

โˆดย Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series โˆด

I am referencing the last book in this series more than the other two for this question. Dreams of Gods and Monsters felt REALLY drawn out to me and I struggled to get through it. The only reason that I did was because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the Karou and Akiva relationship and I felt like I had devoted too much time to this series to just drop it. I was really proud of myself when I finished it and pulled through.


I TAG:

Su @ Bemused Bibliophile | Laura @ Laura Reads and Writes | Mani @ Mani’s Book Corner | Ally @ Ally Reads and Writes | Amy @ Amy’s Reading Nook


Thank you for joining me today! This tag was really different and had some tough prompts. I really had to sit down and go over the books I have read to find the right answer for each question. What do you think of my answers? Do you agree with me? Let me know!

Throne of Glass vs. A Court of Thorns and Roses Book Tag

Hello Lovelies! Recently, I came across this tag when I was scrolling through Octavia @ Mythical Reads’s blog. For those that don’t know, Sarah J. Maas is my favorite author of all time and I just couldn’t resist! I am SO excited! People always ask me which of her series is my favorite and I’m like I CAN’T CHOOSE!! Maybe this will help me decide…

Aelin’s snarky personality grabbed me from the very first chapter in Throne of Glass, but it took me a while (probably towards the end of ACOTAR) to warm up to Feyre.

This question is really hard for me because I care about them both. I think I’ll have to go with A Court of Thorns and Roses though. When I read Throne of Glass for the first time, I wasn’t absolutely crazy over it and didn’t read the next one until about three weeks after that. When I read ACOTAR for the first time though, I was dying for the next book and payed Amazon A LOT of money to get it to my house as fast as possible. I needed to know what happened next like I needed air.

However, whenever I reread either book, I definitely enjoy Throne of Glass more. The only reason I didn’t pick it for that reason is because I don’t enjoyย my rereads of ACOTAR anymore for the ships, not for the writing. In my opinion, ACOTAR is written better.

I really like Nesta, don’t get me wrong. But how could I possibly pick anyone other than Manon for this question? SHE’S MANON BLACKBEAK! She is arguably my second favorite female character ever, the complexity and development of her character is phenomenally written, and she is the creme de la creme of morally grey characters! She’s got it all!!!

I HATE questions like these because they just rip my heart in two! I love all of these characters SOOO much and it sucks to choose between them. With that being said, I think I’m gonna go with The Court of Dreams for this one. I would just give anything to meet them and hanging out with them (even for a couple minutes) would be a dream come true! Plus, to be honest, I’m scared of most of Aelin’s court. I love Manon, I do. But I would freak OUT if I met her!

This is another really though question… Maybe it’s because I haven’t read ACOTAR in a while, but I’m gonna have to go with Aelin and Lysandra. I just feel like their relationship went through so much development and Lysandra’s undying loyalty to Aelin brings me to tears. Mor and Feyre are still ๐Ÿ’– though.

HA!! What do you know, the score was tied! ๐Ÿ˜‚ This embodies me as a person when people ask which series I prefer. I guess this won’t be deciding if I like Throne of Glass or ACOTAR more after all!

I highly enjoyed doing this tag and I am sad that it is over! I hope I will get to do it again in the future, maybe with the addition of Crescent City, things won’t be as tied.

… On second thought, I’m conflicted now, I can’t imagine how I’m gonna be after that series comes out and I have three fighting for my heart!

Yes, I do. I also rate my stars based on how Goodreads does. The only exceptions to it that I have is that I use .5 .25 & .75 stars.

YES! I always do a Goodreads Challenge and I always use 100 as my goal. Even though, realistically, I should surpass that with no problems. I just like for my percentages to be easily calculated. For instance, I have read 80 books so far this year and my Goodreads Challenge percentage is 80%. If I were to use 250 as my goal (which is more likely), than the math I would have to do to guess how many books I have to read to reach a certain percentage would be more difficult.

I have plenty of favorite quotes! I have so many in fact that I post one every day through my Book Quote of the Day posts. Some of my all time favorites would have to be:

โ€œGood and evil are merely opposite sides of a coin. Get tossed in the air enough, it’s easy to come down on the wrong side.โ€ ~Dreamfever

โ€œMost people are lucky to have even one great love in their life. You have found two.โ€ ~Clockwork Princess

โ€œHe thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.โ€ ~A Court of Mist and Fury

โ€œThe Court of Dreams.
The people who knew that there was a price, and one worth paying, for that dream. The bastard- born warriors, the Illyrian half breed, the monster trapped in a beautiful body, the dreamer born into a court of nightmares…And the huntress with an artist’s soul.โ€ ~A Court of Mist and Fury

โ€œMaybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you werenโ€™t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.โ€ ~Crooked Kingdom

Sang & Marie Sorenson (The Ghost Bird Series)

The dynamic between Sang and Marie is truly messed up. If someone would have told me about it instead of me having read it for myself, I probably wouldn’t have believed them. And it is so sad because Sang is sweet, gentle, and one of the kindest people imaginable. The way her sister treats her is abhorrent to me and I hope that one day Sang stops forgiving her and finally stands up for herself.

โˆดย Cersei Lannister (A Song of Ice and Fire) โˆด

Donโ€™t get me wrong, Cersei is a bad person. Sheโ€™s done horrible things to keep herself and the people she cares about safe. BUT I have a hard time completely villainizing her, when we praise other characters (such as Arya Stark) for doing the exact same thing. Arya literally killed Walder Freyโ€™s sons, baked them into a pie, and then fed them to their father. Fans praised her for it and cheered her on. If Cersei would have done that, the internet would have blown up with how evil and vile she was.

How come one character is a monster while another is a hero? The answer is perspective. We are inclined since the very beginning of A Game of Thrones to hate the Lannisters and love the Starks. But, in all honesty, is Cersei that much different from Arya? Cersei is doing what she has to to survive and giving out retribution to the ones that have wronged her. Iโ€™m not saying that this excuses her actions, but it does make me more understanding of who Cersei is and why she does the things she does.

Phenomenal Female Character Book Tag

Screenshot_2019-03-11 Artstudio โ€“ Dashboard

Happy International Women’s Day! In the spirit of today, I decided to do the Phenomenal Female Character Book Tag. I am so excited to do this tag so let’s just jump right into it:


1. Your Favorite: Who is your favorite female lead in bookish history?

Image result for aelin ashryver galathynius

โˆดย Aelin (Throne of Glass Series) โˆด

When I read Throne of Glass for the first time, I connected with Aelin. She grabbed me by the heart and made herself memorable. She wasn’t just going to be another snarky female character that I would forget about when I put the book down. I adored her and every book in the series made me love her more and more.


2. The Scariest: Who is the scariest female character youโ€™ve ever read? (She doesnโ€™t have to be a villain or evil.)

Image result for bellatrix lestrange

โˆดย Bellatrix Lestrange (Harry Potter Series) โˆด

Bellatrix was and always will be one of the scariest female characters out there. She is more than just evil or villainous, but she is also crazy too. She has no regard for those around her and she was completely unpredictable. This made her truly frightening and one of the best female villains out there.

I’m not gonna lie, this was a hard question to answer. I thought about what my answer was going to be for a really long time and I realized why; The majority of villainous or scary characters in books are men. 98% of the characters that scare me are male and that is why it was SO hard to find an answer for this question.


3. Oh-so-sassy: Whoโ€™s your favorite sassy female character?

Image result for jen grey wolves

โˆดย Jen (The Grey Wolves Series) โˆด

I had many female characters come to mind when I read this question, but one stood out amongst all the rest. When I think of Jen, the word sassy is inevitable. Everything out of her mouth is sassy and that is why she is one of my favorite characters of all time.


4. The Kindest: Which female character is the kindest female character youโ€™ve come across in literature?

18403921

โˆดย Sang (The Ghost Bird Series) โˆด

Sang is one of those characters that doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She couldn’t hurt someone without hurting herself because she cares about everyone, even the people that have wronged her. She has more forgiveness and compassion than I could ever have and I admire her for it.


5. Best Character Development: The female lead thatโ€™s changed the most throughout a book series?

Image result for manon throne of glass

โˆดย Manon (Throne of Glass Series) โˆด

I have never seen a character that developed more than Manon. If you were to look at who she started out as in Heir of Fire and then compared her to the Manon in Kingdom of Ash, they are no where even close to the same person. They are almost exact opposites of each other and it is a miracle to see.


6. Sidekicks ROCK: The best female sidekick?

Image result for inej six of crows

โˆดย Inej (Six of Crows Duology) โˆด

I’m not totally sure if Inej should be considered a sidekick, but since Kaz is the leader of their group, I decided to count her. Honestly, no one else that I could think of even came close to how great of a sidekick Inej is. She can always be counted on, is there whenever she is needed, and doesn’t give up no matter what. Anyone would be lucky to have her.


7. Your BFF: The one female character youโ€™d love to have as a best friend?

Image result for daenerys targaryen

โˆดย Daenerys Targaryen (A Song of Ice and Fire) โˆด

Who wouldn’t want Dany as a best friend, honestly? She is a great person, would be fun to be around simply for the stories she could tell, and she has DRAGONS!


8. Misunderstood: Which female character is the MOST misunderstood?

โˆดย Cersei Lannister (A Song of Ice and Fire) โˆด

Don’t get me wrong, Cersei is a bad person. She’s done horrible things to keep herself and the people she cares about safe.

I’m not saying that this excuses her actions, but it does make me more understanding of who Cersei is and why she does the things she does.

9630924

โˆดย Lissa (Blood Destiny Series) โˆด

Lissa has gone through more than anyone else on this list and saved her world more than anyone else on this list. Shocking I know considering who the other females are. Lissa is strong, brave, and she could save the world no matter how many times it needed saving.


10. I Need More: Finally, which female character do you want to see more of in literature?

Image result for nesta archeron

โˆดย Nesta (A Court of Thorns and Roses Series) โˆด

Nesta has intrigued me since the very beginning of ACOTAR. I have never fully understood why she makes the choices that she does and I need more of her story. I want to understand Nesta and I want to see her change. Maybe she will go through more character development than even Feyre did? That would be a sight to see.


I had a lot of fun doing this tag. It made me think about the female characters I read about and I have a newfound appreciation for some of them. What do you think of my answers to the questions? Do you agree or disagree with me?

I think I just like seeing the shock on peoples faces when I tell them I don’t like this book. I also love to rant about it and tell people why the Darkling is KING! and Mal is a stupid love interest who only wanted Alina when he saw her with someone else.


4. Which book would you throw into the sea?

โˆดย Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely #1) by Melissa Marr โˆด

I would chuck this book into the sea in a heartbeat. The main character is stupid, reckless, and selfish. I did not like her, who she ended up with, or the way the whole story ended.

โˆดย Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass #7) by Sarah J. Maas โˆด

Mind you, I am big crier. I will cry over simple things in a book so shedding a few tears is normal for me while I’m reading. In all actuality, you know something’s wrong if I don’t cry during a book. Anyways, this book definitely takes the cake as far as the amount of times I cried. I broke my crying record (that used to be 19 times) in which I cried 43 times while reading this.


10. Which book cover do you hate the most?

โˆดย The Dracons’ Woman (The Soul-Linked Saga #1) by Jo Phillips โˆด

One of the girls over at RHR posted this and I just had to choose it for this question. That cover is atrocious.

Kota Lee has been trying for weeks to get the girl up the street to notice him. She’s beautiful and intriguing, but seems incredibly shy. Too shy. Every time he tries to get close, she dodges him, like a skittish little bird, flittering away out of his reach.

Troubled by her haunted looks, he’s tried to give her some space, respect her need for solitude. Still, he can’t forget those eyes that are haunted andโ€”he thinksโ€”maybe hiding secrets.

One dark night as thunderclouds are rolling in, he’s driving home late and spots her standing in the road. It’s too late for her to be out for a walk and the pack on her back tells him what she’s doing: she’s about to run away.

She could get hurt, or worse, disappear forever. He can’t let her go; he’d never forgive himself if he did.

I enjoyed this novella. I liked getting a deeper look into Kota and what he is like. We rarely get chapters in the ~A~ section in his point of view. This novella showed how much of a sweetheart he is and how much he was willing to do to help Sang even though he didnโ€™t really know her. After reading it, I just wish we got more chapters in Kotaโ€™s point of view more often.
