Five TBR List.

I constantly add books to my TBR list so I’m going to start writing about why I actually want to read them. I will try to do this for every 5 recent books I add to it.

1. Cari Mora by Thomas Harris.

42118856
I’m a huge Thomas Harris fan so how could I miss his new book that is being published soon?? It has thriller, suspense, horror and lots of action! This is going to be one hell of an adventure of a strong female survivor. It has everything a Thomas Harris novel needs.

 

2. You Owe Me A Murder by Eileen Cook.

40142464
This plot seems insane! I loved One of Us is Lying and I’m pretty sure I will love this book too. You don’t hear every day about swapping murders, when you don’t fulfill your end of deal you either have to commit one or just take the fall for one which sounds as creepy as it must be!

 

3.  Regretting You by Colleen Hoover.

I could talk about Colleen Hoover for hours, I love her and she is one of my favorite all-time authors so of course I added her newest book that is going to be published some time next year on my tbr list. I don’t know what is going to be about but I will pray Montlake Romance will put a nice cover on it.

 

4. Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott.

39939417

I’m down for romance novels any time and I got pretty excited when I watched the trailer for the movie especially because Cole Sprouse is in it. I didn’t watch the movie yet because I’m waiting to read the book first which I hope will happen soon.

 

5.  The Umbrella Academy, vol 1: The Apocalypse Suite by Gerard Way.

2795053

Besides the fact that Gerard Way is cool, I watched the show not long ago not knowing that actually he was the writer, which makes him cooler. I really liked the show and I’m looking forward to reading the series now.

A-Z Book Tag

Hey guys, I’ve never done a book tag before and I got really excited when I stumbled upon this one from mudandstars even though I haven’t been tagged, I just wanna play along cause it seems really fun and interesting lol. Here we go:

Author you’ve read the most books from: That’s Stephen King, of course. I don’t keep track of the number but I might have reached 14 books written by him. One of my reading goals is to read all of his books, wish me luck!

Best sequel: Glass Sword, Victoria Aveyard. I’m in love so far with the series and I was really surprised by how awesome the sequel was.

Currently reading: I’ve been reading Papillon by Henri Charriere but I just abandoned it cause it wasn’t really my style at all. I tried tho. Right now I started Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.

Drink of choice while reading: I enjoy drinking a cup of tea from time to time because I feel sick from coffee but I won’t ever refuse hot chocolate.

Ereader or physical: Ereader. I love my kindle so much and since I travel a lot it’s pretty hard to carry all the books with me and maybe I won’t be in the mood to read any of the books I brought with me so if I have them all on my kindle it’s super convenient. I love reading actual books too especially if they’re graphic novels but my every day buddy is the kindle. I don’t really get all the hate thrown at ereaders and why some of the people feel superior just because they only read physical books and don’t “degrade” themselves to technology. A book is a book no matter what form it has.

Fictional character you probably would’ve dated in highschool: My number one choice right now is Will from Slammed by Colleen Hoover. I loved him. I used to swoon over Finn from All the Bright Places but I don’t think I would’ve been able to deal with a suicidal guy. WILL IS THE COOLEST ANYWAYSSSS.

Glad you gave this book a chance: Jane Eyre. I’m not a fan of classics and I hardly get myself to read one but Jane Eyre together with Wuthering Heights made me be more open to classics and appreciate them more. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics.

Hidden gem book: The Three O’clock in the Morning Sessions by Angie Martin. I don’t actually know how hidden this one is but I know it’s far from popular tho it deserves some more popularity. It’s a poetry book and it was awesome how she combined poetry with short stories and you won’t be disappointed by her writing style either. It’s pretty deep and it just made me read it in one sitting. I got it for free on the amazon kindle store.

4124SME919L

Important moment in your reading life: Probably when I got my kindle. It made it so easier for me to read all the books that I wanted and get them so quickly! It’s also a birthday present from my friends and I still have it for 3 years and I hope I won’t ever have to get rid of it. I moved to USA since then and I miss them a lot and now I appreciate it so much more than I used to when I was still at home.

Just finished: Point of Retreat, Colleen Hoover. I was too obsessed with Lake and Will from the first book so I couldn’t get over it until I’ve read the second one and soon I’m gonna start reading the third one.

41UoqYppB9L._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

Kind of books you won’t read: Fantasy and biographies (except a few of them but generally I get bored easily).

Longest book you’ve read: Stephen King’s IT (click the title for the review). Very happy it wasn’t shorter.

Major book hangover because of: I have to decide between two Colleen Hoover books (lol I mention her so often). It’s either It Ends With Us or Slammed. Can I just blame the hangovers on Colleen Hoover in general?

Number of bookcases you own: None yet since I just moved into a new place. I keep buying books but I’m gonna build as many as I need with a little help from my husband. Can’t wait! I might post updates on it when we start working on it.

One book you have read multiple times: George Orwell’s 1984. The first book that turned me into this book ape that I am now.

5470

Preferred  place to read: My bed. All cozy.

Quote that gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: I actually have a notebook where I write all the quotes I stumble upon in my books so this is a pretty hard decision to just choose one but I’m gonna share the first one that I thought of right now: “Stay gold, Pony Boy, stay gold.”

Gotta love The Outsiders.

Reading Regret: Sometimes I regret that I can’t get myself into reading more serious books like philosophy and researches and stuff like that.

Series you started and need to finish: THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!! I have only one book left of it so it’s not that bad but besides this series I have a few more that I have to deal with. I like to complete the series but I don’t know if I can finish everything that I started especially when a long time passed by and I don’t even remember what happened in the previous book(s). But The Mortal Instruments it’s my top priority.

Three all time faves: George Orwell’s 1984, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover (take a shot every time I mention her).

Unapologetic fangirl for: Harry Potter. House Hufflepuff (Pottermore said that so it must be true).

Very excited for this release more than all others: The sequel of Caraval called Legendary by Stephanie Garber. May 2018 can’t come soon enough.

Worst bookish habit: Reading in bed and falling asleep no matter what time of day it is. I hate that.

Your latest book purchase: The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy, The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials and Divergent.

Zzz-snatcher book (a book that kept you up really late): One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. Once you pick it up it’s done, you don’t leave it until you finish it.

Alright so this is my first book tag that I’ve done and I’ve had fun doing this. I can’t wait until the next one! Hope you guys enjoyed it and discovered some books you didn’t know through this.

Oddities and darkness.

This wasn’t my first encounter with David Levithan, but by far this one is the most unfortunate one. I’m talking about Every You, Every Me.

Rating: 2.5/5

I’ve had a few thoughts of rating it 3/5 but I just couldn’t. There was too much teenage angst squeezed in it and it’s too morbid for my taste.

The plot itself wasn’t the most horrible ever or stuff like that but David kinda killed it with too many striked-through words and ugly photographs. I love photography and one of the reasons why I chose this book is because I knew it has photography in it. Man but the photos…

UGLIEST PHOTOS IN THE WORLD. I have no idea who took those photos but it should be illegal for that person to hold any device that has a camera.

It kinda felt like he was just exercising writing and he was getting photos to write stuff inspired by them and then…oh well…let’s print a book.

The main character is the most depressive person ever and he makes you cut your wrists. But still, the plot wasn’t very bad, otherwise I wouldn’t have thought of giving it a rating of 3 at one point.
