November 2017 Book Haul

Image
Hi guys,
Today I will be sharing with you guys the books that I bought recently!

1. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
Im so excited to finally have this book, as you guys may know, I loved the first book so I am so excited! I also got the B&N Exclusive and it has a bonus scene inside!
2. The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli  Ever since I saw this cover, I knew that I wanted this book. The image does not capture how beautiful this cover actually is. Even the back cover is just gorgeous. Im not even really sure what this book is about. This was a total impulse buy and I don't think I want to know what this book is about. Im going to go in blind and I hope that goes alright.
3. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas I'm also so excited about this book, I've heard of people who didn't really have really high expectations for this book because it was really supposed to be a novella of Chaol, but they said that they actually really enjoyed this book and that it was actually ver…

The Crown's Fate by Evelyn Skye!!!!!
As you guys may or may not know, depending on how long you've been here, I absolutely loved the first book in this series and I am sooooooo excited to finally be reading this next book. Hopefully this book won't take me as long as the other book did as well as I hope it does not have to go through another Great Houndini disaster.

The Wish Granter by CJ Redwine Book Review

Image
Hi guys!

Today I am going to be reviewing The Wish Granter by CJ Redwine!

Before i actually get into the review let me tell you guys two quick stories.  Firstly, my dog, Maggie, is a rescue from Tennessee and she has separation anxiety. Because of her separation anxiety, she tends to destroy the house when we leave her alone for the day. We keep putting her in a crate but "The Great Houndini" manages to escape even from that. One day when I got home, I see The Wish Granter on the ground shredded to pieces. Maggie... Let's just say that their were some tears. 
Thankfully, my mother went out and bought me another copy. 
Now onto the next, extremely short story. Someway, somehow, my bookstagram was deleted. Im not exactly sure what happened but thankfully I had saved all of my photos to my phone so I didn't lose those, but all of my followers and likes are gone which is very saddening because I just started gaining some following on it and people took notice. So please! …

Young Adult Books Released in Fall 2017

Hi guys,

I know I have not posted anything really of substance in a while because school has just been so tiring and busy and crew has been so much, so today is my only free day to do anything for this blog.

So without further ado, these are 10 books that came/come out this fall that I have heard a lot about. These books aren't in any real particular order, most of them are in the order of which they came out, but a few are a little out of place so...

1. Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
So for the majority of these books, I am going to put the synopsis and talk about how much I wanna read it and shit like that, but I think that when it comes to E. Lockhart books, it is best to go in blind. I really don't think that I'm going to actually end up reading this book (I know, I know, but please put down your pitchforks!) But I have heard some good things about this book so far so if you were a fan of E. Lockhart's We Were Liars, then definitely pick up this next book of hers.  Rel…

The Wish Granter by CJ Redwine

As you probably saw in my birthday book haul, I am very excited for this book and I am only 100 pages in because, once again, life/school happened. But so far I am really enjoying it, although not as much as The Shadow Queen by Redwine, but it is too soon to tell. Keep your eyes peeled for the review soon!
Thanks for reading!

Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch Review

Hi guys,
Today I will be reviewing Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch!

So if you guys saw a previous post, then you will know that I got this book for my birthday and I was so excited for it. And as I read it, my excitement did not subside. I heard about this book and immediately knew that I was going to love it. It definitely did not disappoint.
This book was amazing. The plot was always interesting and I loved how the story switched between the mother's journal and the real story. The mysterious aspect of the story is something that I really loved because it made me want to keep reading the book, but then again, I never wanted it to end. 
I loved the characters throughout the book. I thought that Welch did really well at looking back into the mindset of a teenage girl and I loved Ren throughout this book. 
Something else that I thought was really interesting that I didn't even notice until finishing this book is that this book took place over the course of less than a we…

Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes Review

Image
Hi guys,
Today I will be reviewing Rebel Spring, book 2 of the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes
I was slowly making my way through this novel. Its been about a year since I have read the previous book in the series , so it was difficult for me to get back into this series. But I hit page 150 and it all came back to me. Rhodes was able to weave yet another intricate tale filled with romance, heartbreak, death and political intrigue.
For characters, I didn't really like any of them but I loved to hate a lot of them. Rhodes has a gift for making characters thatare so unbearable that you wish for them to have a long and painful death as soon as possible. And I praise her for delivering that for the most part.
This plot had great pacing, not too fast where you weren't sure what was going on and not too slow that it is completely unbearable. The plot points in it were great, whether it be an action put forth by the rebels or one occurring due to the King of Blood. And with th…
