topic: ten underrated/hidden gem books I’ve read in the past year or so

the distance between us by Kasie West: I love all her books and this was the first book of hers I read. This is a cute contemporary that you can finish in one sitting.

Heist Society<heist society#1> by Ally Carter: You should read this if you like heist books with teens. I just loved this trilogy and makes my heart full when thinking about it.

Under the Never Sky<under the never sky#1> by Veronica Rossi: Just read for it has plenty for everyone to at least read the first book.

The Iron King<the iron fey#1> by Julie Kagawa: A fey series that I read super fast yet I don’t hear anyone else talk about. I haven’t read the spinoff yet and just want to reread them all.

Graceling <graceling realms> by Kristin Cashore: this book was absolute necessary if you enjoy fantasy books. These is a pretty chunky book that has plenty to keep you entertained.

Unearthly<unearthly #1> by Cynthia Hand: has my favorite couple in it and has a cute story along with it. More people should give this book a chance. Especially  if you like angel books with a hate to love relationship.

Poison Study<study #1> by Maria V. Snyder: This book has grown a bit, but still think that more people should read this book. It has magic, mystery, assassins, and again my favorite troupe.

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton: Yes this is a classic yet its the only one I’ve read multiply times. I love Ponyboy his brothers and the other boys he hangout with. They are just a bunch of boys looking out for each other.

Incarnate <newsouls#1> by Jodi Meadows: this trilogy has some beautiful covers and such a good storyline which I believe more people should give a chance.

Angelfall <Penryn & the End of Days #1> by Susan Ee: I’ve only read the first book of this trilogy and it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed it. My favorite troupe was in it which is why I recommend it to those who like the hate turned respect relationship.

So there you have it. All these books I’ve loved and don’t really hear many people talk about. So please try these out because all books deserve a chance.

Top Ten Tuesday: best new-to-me authors of 2016


hosted by: the broke and the bookish

I don’t do this every week however I’ve read a lot of new authors this year so I felt it was a good one for me. So here is my rambles about some of the new authors I’ve found and want to read more from them.

                                                Lauren Blakely

These are adult books that don’t have all the drama that other books have especially young adults. Which was a relief to me and a change of pace that I could totally get used to. People maybe turned off for titles like Big Rock and Mister O, however yes its to the adult content. But also it does have something to do with the books so it was more fun.

                                    Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I love them together in the joining writing of these books. If you don’t know the two books I mean are Illuminae and Gemina. A mix media book that started last year and just a joys to read. I just need to read there separate books but if its as good as there join books then am excited.

                                               Becky Albertalli

I’ve been putting off Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and I don’t know why. This book was a really good read and I just want more from this author. I don’t usually like Young Adult contemporaries are not my cup of tea. But because it has a secret email exchange between two closeted boys was more fun. I ate this book up and would really love the physical book form instead of ebook/audible.

                                                 Kristin Cashore

I read Graceling and needs to continue with the other two, because Graceling was beautifully written. Plus I loved just everything and just to keep reading these authors books. The book is big however listening to it with full cast plus Poe you could fall in love with it pretty quickly.

                                                       Alice Clayton

Just fun reads that really helped when I finished the Beautiful Bastard series. It was supposed to be a just to see if I would like it and I did. The series I read was Cocktail trilogy with some more ridicule titles like the first book called Wallbanger. But I loved it and its pretty much thanks to the characters and humor. See the pattern.

Robert Galbraith aka J.K. Rowling

I started the Harry Potter series and am up to the third book. In the Robert Galbraith realm I loved the Corman strike series and caught up. So now am just  waiting for the next book coming out next year. She writes a great mystery book that I couldn’t figure out who the killer was. Plus they just get better as the series continues.

                                        Deborah Harkness

All Souls Trilogy killed me this year and simple loved everything about it. I listened to the whole trilogy pretty much right after the other and so glad I did. Can’t wait for more books. Especially more with the cross species, and a time traveling element would be fun.

 

                                                Helena Hunting

Pucked series is unnecessary but I simply loved so glad there is one more book on Randy. Look at those titles being reference to the boys being hockey players. Like I said there crazy but I feel in love with the characters and humor. Plus I’ve the rest of her books so hits and miss but the puck series is my favorite.

  Erika Johansen

Reading the Queen of the Tearling was a beautiful experience. I love the way she wrote this story and with the how all the characters acted to the word itself. I need to continue on because the story is so good and I just want to know. Also if audio it has a full cast that brings something interesting to the story since its a full cast.

                                                Christina Lauren

I read beautiful bastard series this year and pretty much fell in love with them. Though its not the best written book or go really deep. The characters, humor, and the straight joy I had at reading this series I want more.

R.J. Palacio

I read WONDER this year and simple loved this book that I can’t wait to read more by this author next year. This is a middle school book that if you listen to the audio its prefect for the story and loved every second of it.

Top Ten Tuesday


Topic:Books Where the Character Hate Each Other at First Site aka my favorite troupe ever. 

I love this topic because it deals with one of my favorite kind of romances. Don’t ask me why but I simply love how to people from wanting to punch you in the face to kissing it. So here’s my favorite top ten books that goes along those lines. 

(1)

The Bride by Julie Garwood. A Scotsman male vs. English women with a marriage bargain the battle was epic. 

(2)

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. Oh I well never forget Tuckers and  Clara’s meeting and how it pretty much went down from there for awhile. 

(3)

Luxe series (the first two books) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. So much chemistry and no where to put it. I also loved how it didn’t resolve itself in the first book but carried on to the next. 

(4)

Angelfall by Susan Ee. A angel whose had his wings taken, and a girl harden by her circumstances both going on a journey. Sounds fun right. 

(5)

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. Oh Perry and Aria from two different worlds ,have no trust, yet work together. Loved. 

(6)

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong between the Keeper and a guard who alway dig at each other. I loved their parts the most. 

(7)

Touch of Power by Maria V. Synder. This just shows that you can’t just tell a women she has to do anything. Because like Avry will show strong defiance toward you. 

(8)

In death by J.D. Robb aka McNab and Peabodys beginning. There whole relationship was one up and down that I loved every minute of. 

(9)

Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry the brother edition to this question. Benny hates his older brother for his parents death.  But they went on a journey and both learned to trust and love each other.

(10)

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Yes it has Twlight elements in it but I don’t care I loved how Patch and Nora. They both turned that distrust into something more solid. 

There you go my top Hate to Love relationships that I’ve read. I want more already. so if you know anymore good onces let me know and I’ll try them out. 

A Mash Up Of bookish thing


Bookish Delights:

1.Getting new books. I don’t try and buy to many physical books this year. However e-books are still my weakness. However opening up a book to see the book design or end pages and am in love.

2.Organizing my shelves. I need to organize again though I don’t know how. But as long as my series are together and doesn’t look a mess am happy.

3.Audiobooks while at work. Seriously working fast food is one of the stressful part of my day. So when I have free time with nothing but cleaning I start listening to a book.

4.Having complete series. Though I don’t finish them as fast as I should I do love seeing complete series on my shelves and dream about marathoning them someday.

5.Reading a book with all my favorite things. My slow romances with the sassy male characters with a great story line  is my life.

6.when I get a like on a post or view. I don’t blog very often since I don’t read as often or stay up with a lot of things. So when I get a view or like it always make my day.

7.amazon marketplace and book outlet. I love both site though my wallet and parents disagree. However there cheap and I will some how find someplace to put them.

8. getting my mom to read one of my books. I love when my mother comes into my room and ask for a book recommendation. The ones I gave her she has liked so am a proud book worm.

9. collecting bookish things. I don’t have many but it is a hobby that I like along with collecting books.

10. goodreads shelves. They help me keep organized in all my formats of books I have. So goodreads helps me know what I have which format I have it in.

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY: 


Today my copy of The Rose and the Dagger by Renee came in and now am currently reading The Wrath and the Dawn. Which I should have read forever ago but haven’t yet.

Top Ten Tueday


TOPIC: Ten Books Every Non Instant Love Fans Should Read:

 
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowel

I love this book for the fact that Levi and Cath are both goofy people and made for each other. Though that road to that conclusion was long and bumpy.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Valek is pretty much the main reason to read this book. He’s pretty much a jack of all trades and handsome as hell to boot. Which is probably why Yelena (and me of course) fell for him.

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

I want a Sam for he plays music, a great listener, and understanding. Which is all Ana needed after living the way she did before coming to Heart and meeting him. Plus no love triangle which is rare in young adult.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I laugh every time I think of Tucker and Clara. How they went from some what rivals since there first meet wasn’t the best. To becoming a couple and being really romantic with each other. I don’t know why but they are one of my top couples in my head.

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

 Arin and Kestrel have a complicated relationship status. Which is probably why I root for them so much to get together in the end. Politics and war be damned.

 
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

All the books in the His Fair Assassin trilogy have those slow burning love. It helps with the fact that politics, war, and past memories for the girls keep the romances on the back burner.

Legend by Marie Lu

I love Days and Junes relationship in these book. For one hated while the other wasn’t complete sure. Then they cam together thanks to a common goal and fell for each other.

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

Love how these story has one story but pretty much told in two sister point of views. Along with that is two different romances that seem to go different ways to. I simply love Moria and Gavril for the banter and just them makes me love reading about them.

Defiance by C.J. Redwine

This is more of a search for father than a romantic story which is always okay in my book. Rachel the hardheaded red head and Logan the mechanic who try to keep his distance. Plus dealing with the deadly things in the Wasteland sounds like a good start to a romance to me.  

  Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson 

Not many people like how the relationship happen but I did. I loved how it was total friends zone to in a relationship. All the sweet moments just adds up to me a really good start to finish for there relationship.

I love how the romances are built up like good solids one should. I know am not the only one that rolls there eyes at the how predictability, and instant some relationships in books appear. So am always happy and love the book more when there is more a build up then the boom.

 

Meme: Top Ten Tuesday


This weeks Topic: 2015 releases I haven’t gotten to yet.

 

This is a very long list but here are some of the ones I own but didn’t get to. Most of these are from kindle cover pictures so that explains why there is black square things. Also all  the summaries come from Goodreads.

                                        “What is the silence of six, and what are you going to do about it?”
These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend, Evan: Just moments after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school, he kills himself. Haunted by the image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world turns upside down as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting to prove his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions. Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances, and virtual identities — all while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.
   -how does that not sound like a great concept I heard about it by YouTube and watching the trailer. I didn’t get this book until later in the year so I haven’t gotten to it yet. -I want to read this because it has a really cool concept, and  mystery behind the story itself.

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met. -I haven’t heard anything but good things about this book and I want to get to it sooner than later.  Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first. -Am not the biggest fan of the first book in the Grisha trilogy and heard this book was set in the same world. However I heard this is better and about thiefs which excited the hell out of me.

  Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.
Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.
So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.
Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.
Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?-This excited me when I first heard about this and only recently brought it thanks to daily deals.
In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.
When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…
-Its about a library yes please I need this book on my bookshelf.
  Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.
Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.   –Its another Katie Cotugno book and I wanted to read another book by her.First rule of dealing with hot vampire bodyguards? Don’t fall in love.
After losing both her parents before age seventeen, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before the terrifying encounter with a supernatural force. Then, she learns that her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian—who might have just saved her life—is actually a half-demon vampire. Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?
 
– so I’ve only heard about this book from booktube and need to read it to find out more.
  Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right. Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.– I hear very mixed things about this book. On one hand its the story that Cath wrote in Fangirl but then I hears its not. I just need to buckle down and read it already.
Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
 -Am currently reading this in different format and a slow pace. The reason being I don’t want this story to end.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it… or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.-Mixed feeling about this book and need to try myself to know if I want to invest in more of it later on.

(book 2 in the Age of Legends) Their village is gone. Their friends have betrayed them. And now, they are all but prisoners in court, forced to watch and wait while the Emperor decides whether to help the children of Edgewood, who remain hostages of the treacherous Alvar Kitsune. But when the emperor finally sends the girls on a mission to rescue the children – accompanied by Prince Tyrus and a small band of men – the journey proves more perilous than any of them could have imagined. With lies and unrest mounting in the empire, Moria and Ashyn will have to draw on every bit of influence and power they possess to unite their people and avert an all-out war. – Started this book when it first came out but didn’t like how the relationships was going. So I needed a break from it.

 

So in 2015 I didn’t read any 2015 releases which is a bummer. In 2016 I want to get to those along with this years and my series. I have a busy year ahead of me.

Topic Top Ten Resolutions We Have For 2016


Note: (I resolve to finally read these 10 books, series I resolve to finish in 2015, etc.)

Okay one big thing I would love to do this year is start series I have on my shelves. It crazy that I haven’t yet since most of my shelves are full of them (some complete some not). So here is 10 first book in series that I need to at least start this year.

10677277

1.Article 5  by Kristen Simmons- this series has been on my shelves since the beginning of last year. So I really need to read the first book so that I can decided to keep reading these series or donate it.

5187ox7IAML

2. Blood Red Road from the Dust Land trilogy by Moira Young- I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series and pretty much the reason I brought it. These is a fairly new purchase that I may not read right away. However I do want to get to it soon.

  

 3. The Young Elite by Marie Lu- Also it would be lovely to finish the Legend series but that’s not what this is currently about. I need to read this book ASAP for the last book comes out this year and I would love to get the first two read before hand.

img_3454-1

4.The Kiss of Deception from The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson-Again another ASAP read because again the last book come out this year. I loved the concept when I first heard about this book however am a late bloomer as always.

11861062

5. Starters by Lissa Price-There is only two books and I really like the cover. All I have to say except Starters is another book that’s been on my shelf for about a year.

Reboot-final-HC-cover4

6. Reboot by Amy Tintera- I love the concept, its short, and there’s only two books. My question to myself is why haven’t I picked it up yet.

51E+7V-PDyL__SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

7.Mistborn from the Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson- Brandon Sanderson is a very popular author and I know somewhat why I haven’t started this. It is for the reason that the first book I read by him is The Rithmatist and I don’t overly like it. So I’ve been kind a turned off by his other books, but I will at least start this book these year. Fingers crossed.

  

 8. All These Things I’ve Done from the Birthright by Gabrielle Zevin-I have like three books by Gabrielle Zevin, and haven’t read any of her books. Hopefully these one.

  

 9. ANTIGODDESS from the Goddess War by Kendare Blake-its about God and Goddess going to war with each other why the heck not have I picked it up.  

  

 10. The Next Always from the Inn Boonsboro by Nora Roberts-I need to read these for there fun for a summer time.

So I have a lot of reading to do these year and am looking forward to it. My motto for 2016 is buy less read more. Lets just hope I can stick to it.
