Well guess who isn’t prepared for this month…

http3a2f2fmashable-com2fwp-content2fuploads2f20122f112ffinally

This girl!

So I have really nothing planned for this month. This whole already having posts ready to go, really doesn’t help me when it comes to writing these because I just don’t remember to write more. Basically, I have nothing planned for the month.

I have a few reviews coming out from more books I still have to review from my hiatus.

I want to write some discussion posts but I have no clue what to write about so if anyone has any suggestions please comment below.

I did not finish my TBR for last month so that is being continued up into this month.

Basically this month is going to be a crap show and ya’ll are gonna have to sit through it and deal with it. Posts probably wont come every day but I will try…Any posts I do write will most likely be like this one, rushed, short, and done the night before.

But hey it is October and you know what that means:

HALLOWEEN!!

OTHER OCTOBER THINGS

What I can say is that I shall be giving reviews on Riverdale and Stranger Things. I may give post about my Halloween plans or parties that may happen. I don’t know if that would end up in this month though. I can tell you I shall be doing some fall favorites. I can tell you this because that will be my post for tomorrow because it is simple and easy.

Anyways this is all I can give you for this preview. I know this post sucks, do not judge me. I am doing the best I can with the schedule I have.

Thank you for reading and see you next post!

The Bookshelf Tag

This tag was started by: Ramblings of a Red Head Girl

Rules:

1.) Books have to be on your shelf

2.) Put a picture of your bookshelf.

The Bookshelf Tag:

*DISCLAIMER I REORGANIZED MY BOOKSHELF AFTER DOING THIS BLOG AND THAT IS WHAT THE PICTURE IS BECAUSE I AM PROUD OF MY NEW SHELF. BUT THE CONTENTS ARE OF THE OLD SHELF SO JUST IGNORE EVERYTHING I SAY ABOUT TOP THREE SHELVES OR PLACEMENT OF MY BOOKS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY IT CHANGED.

IMG_2131

Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books-it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!) and where you got it from:

My book shelf is white, tall, and has 5 shelves. I got it for Christmas so the exact location of the book shelf is lost on me but I am pretty sure my parents got it from Walmart.

Do you have any special or different way of organizing your books?

On my very top shelf I have my Harry Potter collection and a few of my favorite books. My next shelf has my hardcovers and then the next shelf my paperback. The bottom two shelves are all my other books I have had since childhood.

What’s the thickest (most amount of pages) book on your shelf?

Phew, I dont know. either a Harry Potter book by the queen J.K Rowling or Queen of Shadows by another queen, Sarah J. Maas.

What’s the thinnest (least amount of pages) book on your shelf?

Maybe Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur or House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.

Is there a book you received as a birthday gift?

Recently for my birthday my best friend Maggie bought me her favorite book, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I am currently reading this book.

What’s the smallest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?

The book is my small version of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

What’s the biggest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a J.K Rowling).

Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?

Refer to the birthday book question.

Most expensive book?

I have two (almost three) $300 books. They are collectors edition of, wait for it, Harry Potter books. They are the illustrated version but huge and has gold etching or whatever you call it on the cover. They are my prized possessions. I am getting the third one for Christmas. I hope they finish up the series because I would love to have the entire collection of these books.

The last book you read on your shelf?

I am currently reading the Secret Life of Bees. The last book I finished though was Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman.

Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?

I first read my Harry Potter book if we are counting my top three shelves. My bottom shelves I couldn’t tell you. I have had those books as long as I can remember.

Do you have more than one copy of a book?

I just bought my second copy of TKAM but I will be getting rid of one of the copies because it is super tiny and the other one fits with my Go Set a Watchmen. I have a few extra copies of the Harry Potter books and the Twilight series. I may have more than that but those are the ones I can see from my desk position.

Do you have the complete series of any book series?

Harry Potter, Twilight, Beautiful Creatures, Doon, Fablehaven, Passenger*, Illuminae*, just to name a few.

*I have every book that is out so far.

What’s the newest addition to your shelf?

My newest addition is my new To Kill a Mockingbird and two other books I bought the other day from Barnes and Nobles, Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice.

What book has been on your shelf FOREVER?

Well any of the books on my bottom two shelves but probably my Harry Potter books.

What’s the most recently published book on your shelf?

I want to say Wayfarer but at this point I have no clue.

The oldest book on your shelf (as in, the actual copy is old)?

No clue…

Maybe my Jane Eyre copy because it is ancient.

A book you won?

None…

I aint that lucky.

A book you’d hate to let out of your sight (aka a book you never let someone borrow)?

ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

I am only sort of joking. The ones I wouldn’t let out of site is probably my Harry Potter books.

Most beat up book?

I have a Canterwood Crest book on the bottom shelf. It was originally a library book but I took it to a horse show and it was raining and well…that was not a very good idea.

Most pristine book?

All the books I haven’t read like Wayfarer and The Diabolic. Also most Harry Potter books I got are good. I have one that is ripped in the corner.

A book from your childhood?

Any flipping book on my bottom shelf.

A book that’s not actually your book?

None

A book with a special/different cover (e.g. leather bound, soft fuzzy cover etc.)?

MY COLLECTORS EDITION OF HARRY POTTER!!!!!

A book that is your favorite color?

Shades of Doon is blue. It isn’t actually my favorite shade of blue but it is blue.

Book that’s been on your shelf the longest that you STILL haven’t read?

Many books but I do not know the longest.

Any signed books?

Heartless by Marissa Meyers

Okay guys I did it. I hate doing these lists because it takes forever but at the same time  I really enjoy them because they are simple and I can reflect on stuff.

Anyways thanks for reading this. I didn’t link the book’s Goodreads because I am very lazy. I want to tag the pages so you can put them on your to-read list but I just aint feeling it today.

Thanks for reading!

Have you read any of these? What is your favorite on this list?

Harry Potter Moment of the Week

“Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!”

This weeks question is:

Which books would you recommend to Sirius?

Well, this question is impossible. I don’t really know if I could. I don’t even know what kind of stuff he likes. I am guessing something really bright and happy or something really dark and scary. I think dark and scary would be the way to go. So going down the dark and mysterious route, I think I would recommend the Comoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith. I can see Sirius getting into these books. These books in the series are:

The Cuckoos Calling

16160797

The Silkworm

18214414

The Career of Evil

25735012

Hopefully more soon.

You know what I just realized. I just recommended a J.K Rowling book to a J.K Rowling character. I feel like I have now done this tag wrong. That is it she wrote the series for Sirius I bet so he can read them.

Anyways I hope that is the right book for Sirius. I feel like her likes a wide assortment o books. If you did a HP moment of the week leave your link down below so I can check it out. Thanks for reading.

March 2017 TBR

I am so ready for this month. The books I plan on reading are ones I have been wanting to read for a really, really, really long, long time. I am not gonna waste time chit chatting but instead am going to jump right into it.

Books on my TBR:

These next two books I am currently reading and I didn’t finish in February but one is because it is a school book and the other because I was procrastinating reading the other books.

Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

27779008

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

2623

These are the books I plan on reading this month and I am only choosing two so it is much easier to meet the goal. I have wanted to read these for months now so I am excited to have these on my list.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

23395680

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

16096824

I think that is it for my blog today. I want to know what everyone plans to read this month and if these books are good in the comments below so go comments. Thank you for reading. Look out for my reviews of these books.

What books are you reading? Do you have the same books on your TBR?

February TBR

 

Hey guys!

 

I am finally doing my February TBR. I was super bus this weekend and I have no clue why I didn’t do it yesterday because I had a day off of school because of the foot of snow we received. I am now a week into February and have not finished a book or wrote this post but I guess better late than never. So let’s start.

tbr

This month I plan on reading 4 books. Last month i read five but two of the books I planned on reading I didn’t finish so I will read those two and hopefully finish them. Here is my TBR for February:

18006496

20983362

These two books I started last month and it has taken me forever to finish them and I am still not done with them I don’t know why I have read like a little every day. I guess I need to just sit down and read.

18692431

27779008

These two books I am reading in celebration of Valentine’s Day. I know these stories are cutsie romance type books so I am reading them for love day.

2623

Great Expectations is for school and I don’t really know if I like it yet and it is super long so I don’t know if I will be able to finish it by the end of the month or what our reading schedule is so this is just an extra book just to incase.

 

So those are all the books I am reading. I am glad I have finally got this post done. I have been worried about finishing it. After I post this I am going to try and read Passenger to try and make a dent before school starts today. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading!

January TBR

Me choosing my books for this month.

It is now the beginning of a month, the beginning of a year, and that means it is time for a new TBR list. I am excited about my options for books this month. I have lots of books to read but I am only gonna choose three. I have decided for this month to read:

I choose these books to read because first off I love love love the Throne of Glass series. I seriously cannot get enough of it. I don’t know how I am going to sleep while I have these books to read. I choose Passenger because I want to be ready for the release of Wayfarer.


This month I am making a goal to buy one book. I will probably buy both just because that is how I am but I want to get:

I will probably buy two books milk and honey and then one of the other ones. I probably will not get to Forever Doon this month but I really need to finish that series. I really have the worst habit of leaving series unfinished because I never can get the next book.

Thank ya’ll for reading. Tell me down below what books you want to read this month and if you have any books you are planning to buy.

Next came WICKED, who were looking for an answer. And then they found the perfect boy.

The boy’s name was Thomas, and Thomas built a maze.

Now there are secrets.

There are lies.

And there are loyalties history could never have foreseen.

This is the story of that boy, Thomas, and how he built a maze that only he could tear down.
