Top 12 Reads of 2016 |¬†Bookmas Day 12!

 

In the order I read them:

01 Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

5/5

This book is fluffy and amazing and please go read it. I read it twice in two days and stayed up until 4am each day, which is really saying something because I am not good at staying up past Midnight.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

02 Skulduggery Pleasant (Skulduggery Pleasant #1) by Derek Landy

4.75/5

Guys, go do yourself a favour and read this book (I’ll probably say the same thing about all the books on this list though). Skulduggery Pleasant is one of the best series I’ve read, I am currently reading book 9 (out of 10) and am really enjoying it. This series is full of unique and quick-witted characters – the banter is ridiculously good!

Skulduggery Pleasant (Skulduggery Pleasant, #1)

03 Captain Marvel, Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More by Kelly Sue DeConnick (Writer) & David López (Artist)

3.5/5

I read the first three volumes of this series earlier in the year and absolutely loved it! Carol Danvers is brilliant, or t least I think she is. I find her to be one of the more relatable superheores, while she may be in space, saving the galaxy she is still keeping up with the fandoms – she called her cat Chewie!

Captain Marvel, Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More

04 Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

5/5

The Raven Cycle is one of my favourite series and I have loved every book in the series so it’s hard to say which one is my ¬†favourite, but this book is certainly a close contender.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)

REVIEW OF BLUE LILY LILY BLUE

 

 

05 Nova Volume 1: Origin by Jeph Loeb (Text), Ed McGuinness (Illustrations)

5/5

This is one of my favourite comic series of all time. Nova is pretty much Spiderman in space. He’s an adorable little kid with big shoes to fill – he’s here to save the galaxy (and do his homework).

Nova Volume 1: Origin (Marvel Now)

06 Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith

4/5

I really love this series – I listen to the books on audiobook and I really recommend that style. The audiobooks really capture the voices of the characters. Rowling has created some really amazing characters – the stuff she comes up with s amazing!

Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike, #3)

REVIEW OF CAREER OF EVIL

07 The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan

5/5

I also listened to this one on audiobook and really enjoyed it! I loved this book and consider it one of my favourites of the year, Riordan just has a way with words. Apollo is a hilarious narrator and I really can’t wait to read book 2 next year!

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)

REVIEW OF THE HIDDEN ORACLE

08 The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy #1) by Emily Rodda

5/5

I read this trilogy a few years ago and loved it and randomly in the middle of the year I was hit with the sudden urge to re read it. And I am so glad that I did pick up the trilogy, it’s a lovely and unique series and I can’t recommend it enough.

The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy #1)

09  The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson

5/5

Oh. My. God. Don’t even get me start with this book. Brandon Sanderson is a fantasy god. ¬†I loved the magic system and the characters are all amazing.This trilogy is truly brilliant and I cannot wait to start some of his other books.

The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

REVIEW OF THE FINAL EMPIRE

10  My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton &  Jodi Meadows

5/5

Okay, guys, I know it’s Christmas but stop what you’re doing and please go and read this! This book is hilarious and you can tell the authors enjoy working together. The characters are awesome and the plot is ridiculous!

My Lady Jane

REVIEW OF MY LADY JANE

11 Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson

5/5

I read the first 4 volumes of this series last month and can’t wait to read volume 5 when my library gets it. I loved the artwork and I loved the relationships, romantic or otherwise. This is a fun and original new comic series and I can’t way to continue on with!

Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy (Lumberjanes #1-4)

12 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

5/5

I saw this film last month¬†and fell in love with Newt Scamander instantly, I went from being incredibly sceptic about the series to having complete faith in Rowling. After reading this and seeing the film, I believe that J.K. knows what she’s doing and I can’t wait to see her latest project through. Can’t wait for the next instalment!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay

Top 11 Most Anticipated Releases of 2017 |¬†Bookmas Day 11!

01 The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

May 16th 2017

This is a book about a spy school that cultivates teens into tropes and two boys from the school who are each seen as either the “good boy” or the “bad boy” and are meant to be in a love triangle with a girl from the school but end up falling for each other. I am so ready.

The Love Interest

02 Lumberjanes, Vol. 6: Sink or Swim by Noelle Stevenson

April 20th 2017

I read the first four volumes of this series last month and plan on continuing on with the series as soon as the library gets the next instalments in the series. I definitely recommend this series – it’s really fun and quirky!

Lumberjanes, Vol. 6: Sink or Swim

03 America by Jamie McKelvie (Artist), Matt Wilson (Colorist)

America Chavez is amazing. She has spunk and is certainly not afraid to throw a punch. I loved her in Young Avengers and I can’t wait to see her in her own series!

America

04 Silver Surfer, Vol. 5: The Man Who Lived Twice by Dan Slott (Text), Mike Allred (Illustrations)

September 5th 2017

I haven’t yet read volume 4 but I know I’ll love it so I am definitely anticipating volume 5.

Silver Surfer, Vol. 5: The Man Who Lived Twice

05 Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children #2) by Seanan McGuire

June 13th 2017

I loved the first book, Every Heart A Doorway and the second book is based more so on two of the other characters – Jack and Jill. I find these two characters really interesting so I can’t wait to find out more about them.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)

06 The Empty Grave (Lockwood & Co. #5) by Jonathan Stroud

Okay, so I haven’t actually read any of the books in this series yet but I really think I’m going to enjoy it. I plan on starting the series at the start of next year so I hope I’ll be able to get to book 5.

07 Untitled (Skulduggery Pleasant #10) by Derek Landy

June 2017

I am currently reading book 9 of this series, I read the last few books in the series last month and I think I kind of exhausted myself. I know that by June I should be ready to read the last book in the series but for now I’m a bit tired of the world.

There is no cover image yet ūüė¶

08 Caraval (Untitled #1) by Stephanie Garber

January 31st 2017

“Welcome, welcome to Caraval‚ÄēStephanie Garber‚Äôs sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.”

I don’t even need to explain – this sounds amazing!

Caraval

09 The Gatlon School for Vigilantes (The Gatlon Trilogy #1  by Marissa Meyer

Marissa Meyer and Superheroes?¬†I don’t actually know the plot of the books but I am so ready.

There isn’t a cover image for this yet ūüė¶

10 The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan

The Hidden Oracle (book one) was one of my favourite read of the year so I’m really excited for book two!

The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo, #2)

MY REVIEW OF THE HIDDEN ORACLE

11 History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

January 17th 2017

I’ve never read anything by Adam Silvera, nor do I know the plot of this novel. All I know is that Adam Silvera seems like a really nice man and this book is supposed to be amazing!

History Is All You Left Me

Top 10 Covers of 2016 |¬†Bookmas Day 10!

2016 has not been an overly fantastic year but it’s been a pretty decent year for books, I’ve read some amazing books this year, ther have also been some fantastic books pyublished this year! Book covershave gotten a lot better over the last few years and let’s be honest we all judge ¬†book by it’s cover.This list has been one of the most difficult I’ve made during Bookmas, there were so many books I wanted to add to this list but unfortuntely I could only have 10 covers.

01 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Who on this Earth doesn’t love the cover of this novel? Gold is my least favourite colour of any, I’m really just not a fan of shiny things. However, the gold with the dark shade of blue looks amazing and the art is stunning!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay

02 Heartless by Marissa Meyer

One to be a murderer. One to be a Martyr. One to be a Monarch. One to go Mad.

I’m not particularly fond of the normal edition of the novel but the Owlcrate edition is absolutely stunning! I was never particularly fond of the arc cover and I was sure the cover was going to be different for the final printing of the novel.

Heartless

03 The Flash Vol. 6: Out Of Time by Robert Venditti

I think this series has been blessed with amazing covers but that could be said for pretty much any comic covers – they almost always have brilliant and eyecatching covers! The covers are amazing but the story is even better – Like almost everything on this list I definitely recommend this comic series.

The Flash Vol. 6: Out Of Time (The New 52)

04 A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) by Claudia Gray

I’m actually really not a big fan of this trilogy but the covers and the plot are what keep me reading the books. I’m really hoping to read it by the end of the year because then I will have read the entire trilogy this year.

A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3)

05 Orange: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1 by Ichigo Takano

This manga sounds amazing! One day Naho is just chilling when one day she recieves a letter from her future self. At first she writes it off as a prank but as the predictions in the letter begin to come true Naho relises that the lette might be real. Her future self from the letter also warns her that a new transfer student will be arriving soon and that she needs to watch over them.

This honestly sounds brilliant and I can’t wait to read it!

Orange: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1

06 This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab

I have never read a book by Victoria Schwab so to say I am excited is an understatement! I’ve heard brillian tthings about this book – the worlds is supposed to be structured really well and in a very unique way. I’ve herd tht the charcters are really likeable and that the story is really enjoyable.

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)

07 Zodiac Starforce: By the Power of Astra by Kevin Panetta & Paulina Ganucheau

I gave this to one of my friends for Christmas and she absolutely loved it, naturally that has really heightened my excitemnet for it! The comic use really bright cours, hs a diverse cast of chracters and has LGBT characters. I am so ready to read it!

Zodiac Starforce: By the Power of Astra

08 I Hate Fairyland, Volume 1: Madly Ever After (I Hate Fairyland #1) by Skottie Young (Writer, Artist), Jean-François Beaulieu (Colourist) & Nate Piekos (Letterer)

The plot sounds amazing but the only problem I have with comics is that if I can’t access them at the library or take a look at the art style at the comic store I don’t really know what I’m in for.

I Hate Fairyland, Volume 1: Madly Ever After

09 Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection (The Cosmere) by Brandon Sanderson

As ¬†I’ve only read the Mistborn trilogy I can’t yet start this novel – it’s a collection of shorter stories from some of Sandersons works in the Cosmere world. I plan to be able to read this in a year or 2 after I’ve read enough of Sanderson’s works.

Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection

10 Beast by Brie Spangler

An LGBT version of Beauty and the Beast? That’s literally all I know about this book and I’m pretty sure it’s all I need to know. The cover is amazing and it’s based on my favourite movie of all time, I am so ready!

Beast

Top 9 Books Published in 2016 |¬†Bookmas Day 9!

01 We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

Okay, so from what I’ve learnt writing these posts for bookmas is that I really don’t know the plot of any of the books on my TBR and that I think I’m okay with that. All I know of this book is that it is LGBT and it has aliens. And quite honestly I think that’s all anyone needs to know.

We Are the Ants

02 Orange: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1 by Ichigo Takano

I don’t really read manga but this series got a lot of hype this year, and I’ve heard that it’s a good place to start. I would have alreaady rad it but it’s quite expensive to buy online, my libraries don’t have it and it’s not in stores.

Orange: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1

03 Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda & Jeremy McCarter

I have been listening to this on audio gradually for a few months, I am currently on chapter six and am loving it! I love the soundtrack and because I don’t live in the US or anywhere close I will never be able to see it live so being able to learn about how the show was created is really cool!

Hamilton: The Revolution

04 The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

The final novel in The Raven Cycle series. One of the most highly anticipated novels of the year, not just for me but for many people all over the world. Some people didn’t ejoy the ending of this novel but personally I didn’t mind it, I loved this novel and I’m aready planning to reread the series next year.

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)

MY REVIEW OF THE RAVEN KING

05 The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan

I loved this novel, so so much. Apollo is a horific and hilarious protagonist, he is ridiculously full of hiself and he really thinks he’s all that. I am definitely looking forward to the next four books in the series.

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)

MY REVIEW OF THE HIDDEN ORACLE

06 Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Everyone and their dog’s cousin has heard about this novel, it’s been in countless book hauls and wrap ups and yet I still have no clue what it’s about. All my mind has retained about this novel is that it’s pretty nuts. Of course tht mkes me pretty excited for it.

Dark Matter

07 My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

Guys, this book is phenomenal. The charcters are amazingly witty and opinionated which certainly makes the dialogue and inner monologues of the characters more fun and hilrious. This book is one of the top three funniest thing I’ve read all year and I regret nothing. Please go and read it.

My Lady Jane

MY REVIEW OF MY LADY JANE

08 Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1) by Sylvain Neuvel

Rose Franklin was riding her bike one day when she saw something, naturally she went to investigate and then fell in a giant hole. What was in the hole, you may ask. A giant metal hand, I may answer!

I am so ready for this book, it sounds strange and silly,  sign me the hell up!

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files, #1)

09 Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire

I have actually read this novel so I can definitely say that I loved it! I fully intend to finish the series as the next books come out. Every Heart A Doorway is an interesting and mysterious novel, it’s about a school of kids who have all been into worlds not their own. They’ve travelled through doorways to other worlds and found themselves there and have then been thrown out, naturally, they want to go back but with most cases the doors never appear again. Because of this the kids have a lot of trouble adapting to their old world and are then shipped off to this school, a bit like rehab. It’s a really interesting novel and I definitely recommend it!

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1)

Top 8 Books I Want to Read in 2017 |¬†Bookmas Day 8!

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

Everyone and their neighbour’s niffler knows about this series. It sounds fantastic and though I’ve only read a few pages of it, I already love it. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series and I cannot wait to get to know the characters!

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

02 In Real Life by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang

I am so ready to read this you don’t even know. Gaming and comics? Sign me the f up!

In Real Life

03 Scythe  (Arc of a Scythe #1) by Neal Shusterman

Okay, so this book has been getting a lot of hype lately and I got curious. I actually have it out from the library at the moment so hopefully I’ll be able to get to it soon.

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe, #1)

04 Steelheart  (Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson

I loved the Mistborn trilogy and I love superheroes so I can only guess that I’ll love this series. I am ready for more Sanderson!

Steelheart (Reckoners, #1)

05 The Dark Prophecy  (The Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan

I read the first novel of this series this year and I really enjoyed it, Apollo is hilarious! This was probably one of my favourite novels of the year.

The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo, #2)

MY REVIEW OF THE HIDDEN ORACLE (BOOK ONE)

06  (Lockwood & Co. #1) by Jonathan Stroud

I fully intend to start this series in January next year so hopefully I’ll be able to kick off the year with a bang and knock off some of my TBR early in the year. I haven’t actually read the blurb but the cover is giving me a Ghostbusters vibe so I’m pretty excited about it!

The Screaming Staircase (Lockwood & Co., #1)

07 The Gatlon School for Vigilantes (The Gatlon Trilogy #1) by Marissa Meyer

I’ll be honest I really don’t know that much about this trilogy. It’s not coming out until November in 2017 so I’m sure we’ll find out more closer to the release date and once we get a cover. I mean, Marissa Meyer and superheroes? I’m in.

There’s no cover image yet ūüė¶

08 Young Avengers, Volume 2: Alternative Culture by Kieron Gillen

Earlier this year I read the first volume of this trilogy and I loved it! This comic series has a fantastic cast of characters and I really enjoyed the plot of volume 1 – I only wish that the series had not been cancelled!

Young Avengers, Volume 2: Alternative Culture

 

Top 7 Series Finales/ Sequels of 2016 |¬†Bookmas Day 7!

Like every other year I started a lot of series when I still had not finished other series this year. So it wasn’t too hard to compile this list. I’m pretty happy with the selection of sequels and finales I read this year but there are still soo many that I didn’t manage to get to.

In no particular order:

01 The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

This is a pretty well-known and popular series amongst the YA community. I picked the first book up on a whim last year and it quickly became a favourite of mine! So naturally I had to read the rest of the series! I loved the finale, it was amazing!

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)

MY REVIEW OF THE RAVEN KING

02 Magnus Chase and The Hammer of Thor – Rick Riordan

I feel like I’ve mentioned this trilogy in soo many posts lately and it’s getting a bit ridiculous, I guess I just need to read the books!

Because I’ve mentioned these books soo often I don’t really need to explain why I want to read the novels. I’ve loved every book by Riordan that I’ve read so I don’t see why this series would be any different.

The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2)

03¬†The Flash, Volume 9: Full Stop¬†–¬†Robert Venditti

I’ve only read the first 5 volumes of this series but now that the series is finished I plan on reading the rest of it in 2017. I am a big comic reader but tend to read more MARVEL but I do love this series. Barry Allen is a really interesting character so his adventures in and out of the Speed Force are really entertaining.

The Flash, Volume 9: Full Stop

04 Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) РLeigh Bardugo

With every book on this list except The Raven King, I have not read this, nor Six of Crows. As with all of the other books on this list I do plan on reading this next year. I have heard nothing but good things about this duology so i really can’t wait to pick up the novels next year!

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

05¬†A Gathering of Shadows –¬†V.E. Schwab

I borrowed the first novel in this trilogy from the library a few months a go but never got around to reading it so hopefully I will be able to start it next year and then actually finish off the trilogy in 2017.

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)

06¬†A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) –¬†Claudia Gray

I have actually read the first two novels in this triolgy and I’ll be honest I didn’t actually like them all that much. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed them enough to want to continue the trilogy but I like the books more for the plot than for the characters – the main character is unbearable annoying and the romance makes me sick (it’s too much for me).

A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3)

MY REVIEW OF BOOK ONE

MY REVIEW OF BOOK TWO

07¬†Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection (The Cosmere) –¬†Brandon Sanderson

I don’t know if this officially counts as a sequel but it’s part of a few of Sanderson’s different series so I’m counting it. This year I read the Mistborn trilogy and LOVED IT, I fell in love with Sanderson’s writing and the way he creates new worlds. In 2017 I plan on reading his Reckoners trilogy and The Stormlight Archive.

Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection

6 Books I Wish I Read in 2016 | Bookmas Day 6!

01 A Storm of Swords – George R. R. Martin

I’ve read the first two novels in this series and if I’m honest I’m not totally sure whether or not I will actually continue this series. It’s a long time between books there are soo many pages and I don’t feel any particular connection to the characters or plot that really makes me want to read the books.

Image result for a storm of swords book

02 Consequences (Books 3 & 4) – jennifer L. Armentrout

I reread the first bind up in this series earlier this year and said that I would read the rest of the books later in the year. Of course, I didn’t! I do really want to read the next books next year, though so I can finally finish off the series and find out how it all ends.

Consequences: Opal & Origin (Lux, #3-4)

03 Winger – Andrew Smith

This book was a big hit a couple of years ago and I don’t know of anyone who didn’t like this novel. I’ve had this novel for a year or two and for some reason I just haven’t picked this one up. Also, it’s LGBT so naturally it’s higher up on my TBR list.¬†One day (hopefully in the next year or two) I will pick it up.

Image result for winger andrew smith

04 Magnus Chase & The Sword of Summer – Rick Riordan

I’ve mentioned this series on a lot of my posts lately but hey, I really do want to read it! I did mean to pick this novel up earlier this year, but as my schedule got busier and school got more demanding (I decided out of nowhere to do a hospitality course in April and make my life harder) I sort of forgot about a lot of books I had been planning on reading and just picked up whatever looked good on the shelves at the library!

Image result for magnus chase and the sword of summer

05 You – Caroline Kepnes

In 2015 this book was all the rage and it was on the very top of my list so when a friend bought it for me for Christmas I was ecstatic! Naturally, as is with the majority of books I receive in bulk (because what bookworm doesn’t get heaps of books for xmas?) I only got to a few of the books and You is still sitting there waiting, unread on my bookshelf.

Image result for you caroline kepnes

06 The Screaming Staircase Р Jonathan Stroud

I know this series has at least 4 or 5 books in the series already so I want to try and at east read the first novel to see how I like it. I don’t know too much about the series, just that it’ paranormal and I feel like it involves ghosts but that might just be because I just watched Ghostbusters.

The Screaming Staircase (Lockwood & Co., #1)

Top 5 Classics Read in 2016 | Bookmas Day 5!

I really didn’t read too many classics this year so this list was a bit hard to compile but I got there in the end!

Macbeth –¬†William Shakespeare

I read Romeo and Juliet last year and then I saw a modernised version of Macbeth which then inspired me to read it. I loved it and although I’ve only read two Shakespeare plays but I know this is going to stay a favourite of mine as I read more plays over the years.

Macbeth (No Fear Shakespeare)

MY REVIEW OF MACBETH

Pride & Prejudice – Jane Austen

I read this last year and really loved it so I decided to participate in the Austentatious bookclub earlier this year. I loved it as much as I did last year.

Pride and Prejudice

MY REVIEW OF P & P

Persuasion – Jane Austen

This was one of the first novels I read this year and while I didn’t really love it at the time I have grown to appreciate the story over the year. This novel is a bit different to Austen’s other novels, the main character is older than her other heroines so the plotline and the perspective and maturity of the main is different.

Persuasion

MY REVIEW OF PERSUASION

Amazing Spider-Man¬†Issue 1 –¬†Stan Lee

This year I read the first nine issues in the original Spider-Man comics. Spidey is my favourite hero so naturally I wanted to try and read some of the original works.

Amazing Spider-Man (1963-1998) #1

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) –¬†J.K. Rowling

We all know that Harry Potter is going to be a classic, honestly I just consider it ¬†classic already. This series changed my life and while it didn’t make me a reader it has definitely influenced me throughout my life so far. Harry Potter is by no means my favourite protagonist but him combined with character like Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna, Neville and Hagrid I have been able to grow up surrounded by different people with different personalities and problems.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

MY REVIEW OF HP 1

Top 4 Underrated Reads of 2016 | Bookmas Day 4!

My Lady Jane – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

I rated this novel 5/5 stars. I loved it! This novel was a hoot! The authors turned a small piece of history into 500 page comedic novel!I read this brick of a book in a matter of days, and although many people own it because of monthly book boxes I don’t think that many people have actually read the book.

My Lady Jane

MY REVIEW OF MY LADY JANE

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertali

Like everything else on this list I loved this novel. This is an amazing, fluffy and lighthearted novel. This was the fifth book I read this year and I read it in a day, and then immediately started it again! I rated this 5/5 both times I read it.

This is a really nice and sweet read and honestly, not enough people have read it!

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) – Brandon Sanderson

I think this series is really underrated, partly because these books are so massive that people get very intimidated by the books and because Sanderson’s other series, The Stormlight Archive is widely the most popular series of his.

The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

MY REVIEW OF THE FINAL EMPIRE

Young Avengers, Volume 1: Style > Substance (Young Avengers #1) –¬†Kieron Gillen

I have only read volume one of the trilogy and do plan on picking the rest of the instalments in 2017! The series got cancelled after volume 3 and it is very hard to get a hold of. The cast of characters in this series is amazing, this is probably one of the most diverse things I read this year. Definitely pick it up if you get the chance!

Reading Update…Bookmas? | 17.12.2016

Hey guys! How is your reading going this month?

I decided, pretty last minute to participate in Bookmas! I won’t be doing the first few bookmas challenges but I am definitely participating in the readathon, it’s always nice to finish off the year with a bang, reading as many books as I can!

CURRENTLY READING: 

So far, I have read 2 books. I managed to read book 9 and 10 of the Georgia Nicholson series! I’m really glad that I managed to close off the series before the end of the year, as it was one of my reading goals for the year to finish this series!

Stop in the Name of Pants! (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #9) Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me?': Fab Final Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

WHAT NEXT:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K.Rowling which I’m reading also as pat of Harry Xmas To You! I am listening to the audiobook (Stephen Fry’s narration!) even as I write this. I am just over 50 pages in and am, as always loving it!

Along with this novel I also plan on reading one other book. I’ve not yet decided which novel I will read, I am roughly halfway through Heartless by Marissa Meyer but I would also like to read A Million Worlds With You by Claudia Gray so I can finish off the trilogy for the year!

OTHER NEWS:

I have lights on my bookshelf!

Displaying 20161217_201133.jpg

I’ll probably get some more after Christmas as well (I saw some really cool ice block lights the other day) but for now I really like the ones I’ve got. I mean, they’re pegs, that’s really cool!
