The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (The Hunger Games, #0)

Year 3000 – A book you’re looking forward to reading

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes! OMG, I’m so excited about this book! I need it right now! If you want to know all of my feelings about this book, check out a previous post by clicking here.

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)

When You Look Me In The Eyes – A cover that drew you in

Red Queen! I don’t know why but there is something about the blood dripping off the crown that makes me love and want to read this book! I LOVE this cover! Simple and Beautiful!

S.O.S – A book or series that turned its back on you

**Spoiler** DIVERGENT! OMG. I loved this series, and then we get to the end and it’s all an experiment and Tris dies? Are you kidding me?? Not to mention the movies and how bad they were!

Eleanor & Park

Love Bug – A book or series you’re currently smitten with

I’m currently reading Eleanor & Park and it’s so cute! I love this book! The school bus, the tapes, the story, everything! I haven’t finished it yet but it will be a book I always go back to!

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

Burnin’ Up – A book/series featuring a great romance

The Selection series is a beautiful love story! I don’t care if you judge me for that, but Maxon and America were made for each other! This is such a great romance because it started with America being in love with someone else and just spying on the other girls for Maxon and I love it! Gawh I need to read this again!

Play My Music – A book featuring a hobby that’s not reading/writing

Deadly Little Secret’s Camelia is an extraordinary potter and uses the clay as a way to express herself, and have premonitions.

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)

Give Love a Try – A book/series you want to (or glad you did) give a second chance

I would really like to give Shiver a second chance. I started in this series but I couldn’t get in to the second book. I’m hoping 2020 is the year that I can get into this series again.

House of Salt and Sorrows

Fly With Me – Your OTP

Annaleigh and Fisher from House of Salt and Sorrows. * Spoiler below*

I know that Fisher is dead but I still love them together and I wish that they would have been able to end up together.

The TBR Book Tag- I need to read more

I love book tags, so here we are again with another one! I saw this one Stephen Write Blogs, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.

  1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I actually have a book crate that I out all of my TBRs in and I don’t put them on my shelf until they are read! I also use goodreads for all of books I don’t known but want to read.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Print for sure! I have the Kindle app on my phone but I’m not the biggest fan of it. I am thinking about giving it another try on a a tablet or buying a kindle but I’m not sure yet. Let me know what you think down in the comments!

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

It goes a little like this: 1. Is it a series? What is the next book? 2. How much hype is around the book? 3. Did I get it from Owlcrate? (I try to keep up with those books). If this fails I put my top picks in a pile and ask my family which one they choose and the one with the most votes wins.

4. A book that’s been on your TBR the longest.

Shatter Me, Gracling, and Matched. I believed that I bought them at the same time and I just haven’t picked them up yet.

5. A book that you recently added to your TBR.

I feel like I’m always adding new books to my pile. Queen of Nothing is probably the newst book on my TBR , but it should get read pretty quickly since I’m doing Holly Black January.

6. A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover

I don’t think I have one. I have bought books because of their covers but I tend to read them pretty quickly.

7. A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading

The Wizard of OZ. I LOVE this whole story and movie and I own three versions of this book. Will I ever read it? Who knows.

8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for

I have three. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Ember Queen, and Unravel the Dusk!

9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you

oh gosh, there’s a few. The Kane Chronicles and Shatter Me are just two of them.

10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you

Shatter Me. I know I know, I need to read this.

11. A book on your TBR that you’re just dying to read

I’m in a little bit of a book slump tight now so I’m not dying to read anything at the moment.

12. The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf

I didn’t even want to look. I have a serve problem with just adding books on there is they look remotely good. 236, but It’s actually like 150 probably because there’s a lot of books from the kindle app that I downloaded for my papers for college that aren’t marked as read on there.

This was so much fun and I really had to look at the TBR pile and maybe re-evaluate how many books I buy and how I read them! Everyone should do this with me!

End of the Year Book Tag| Blogmas Day 7

How is 2019 already coming to an end?? Seriously this year has flown by! I guess that’s what happens when you have your nose in a book! I saw this book tag on Foxes and Fairy Tales:Book Blog and I love it! This is such a fun idea for the end of the year! 

Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

I tend to finish books pretty quickly, so there’s not just one book that I want to finish before the end of the year, but I do have a pile that I would like to finish before the end of the year.

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

I don’t have a single book that I like to transition into the new year with, but I do like to finish a book right before we enter into the new year. There’s just something about starting a new book on the first day of a new year that makes my heart happy!

Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I’m not waiting for a book to be released in December, but I have a handful that I’m stoked about that are coming out in 2020, I’m looking at you The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Oh gosh, I have a few. One of my top three is Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myrhcle. This makes it to the top three because I have heard good things about the book, and it sounds like it will be a good winter read! Another in my top three is Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw. Again, this sounds like it will be a good winter book, but it also is the newest Owlcrate book, and I like to keep with my Owlcrate books! The last book in my top three is Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian. I really loved Ash Princess, and I’m so excited to read what happens next! I also really want to read this book before the third book comes out in February!

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

For sure! I have about five books in my 2019 TBR list and they all seem really good books!!

Have you already started making reading plans for 2020?

I have books I know I will buy, my TBR list, and the books from Owlcrate that I am planning on reading. As for when I’ll get to each of those books, I don’t have a plan. I’ll just pick up whichever book I feel drawn to!

I’m tagging:

Everyone! This is so much fun so much fun and it’s a great way to look towards the end of the year!
