wp-1448488519243.jpg

Hey bookworms! I am almost catching up on this challenge! Yay me! If you want to see my 1st Day and go on from there I will link it. This challenge was created by Annreads on Instagram and I thank her for letting me do this challenge because it has been a way to keep my blog active as well as my brain! So let me get started!

Day 13: Favorite BFF’s

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

Unspoken

Kami and Angela

Let’s face it we all need a BFF we drag into adventure and I relate to Angela’s need for a push sometimes. I hope to finish this series next year to see if my love of these 2 friends remain the same

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Dream's of God's and Monsters

Zuzana and Karu

Now I know I raved on Zuz on Day 7, but I really do adore this duo! They have such a solid friendship. The constant support of each other and the way they joke and play! I’ve loved them from the first instance they were together!

Bridge to Teribithia by Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia

Jessie Aarons and Leslie Burke

Honestly it was nice to see a friendship between a boy and girl, so young. Someone to push you to be better it is amazing read on how two different minds can push you to grow!

Day 14: Books that Deserve More Attention

Pivot Point by Kasie West

Pivot Point

Need something to curve your craving until the next X-Men movie? Well this is the book I recommend. I know it came out 2 years ago, but I feel it didn’t get the attention it needed because I wasn’t even aware of it until the my lovely Book BFF Paige sent it to me! I got to the end and couldn’t believe I hadn’t found it sooner. I plan to read the second as soon as I finish the reread I am on Scribd as well as some paper books that have been waiting for me. Definitely kept me guessing!

Inspire by Cora Carmack

Inspire

Honestly my favorite Cora Carmack read because it took such a twist with Mythology and the muses! I definitely plan a reread before book two comes out!

Citrus Vol 1 by Saburo Uta

Citrus Vol 1

Now just like the cover the content is a bit explicit, so be warned, but I must spread the love for this. I am a manga lover and have been from a young age, but I am one of the few girls that does not have a love for yaoi. It just isn’t my thing, but I do have a good love for yuri with a good amount of angst and tension. I want them to work for a relationship. Sadly their aren’t many Yuri (girl love) manga out in the world, so I have to spread the love with this one. I really am addicted and want to know what happens next with each volume!

Well bookworms that is all for this post! Did you grow to love any new fictional friendships this year? Which were they? Do you know books that need more love? Know any yuri manga I should check out? How about any books that remind you of X-Men? Any X-Men reader fans out there or am I a lone mutant lover? Have you read any of these books if so share your thoughts with me on them in the comments! Happy Reading!

My Ambiguous August TBR!

August TBR

Hey Bookworms! It is finally time for my TBR! I have been thinking over it for a while because I didn’t read many of the books from My July TBR… So the title for this TBR will hopefully make up for it because I discovered I have become a more of a mood reader lately. I want to read one thing one minute and another the next! So my TBR isn’t going to be too ambitious because I start my last semester on the 24th. I know school will only take up the last week of August, but better safe than sorry. So any who, let’s get started and talk about the books that are on my mind now!

My August TBR

1.  The Rest of The Princess Diaries Series by Meg Cabot

Princess on the Brink Princess Mia Forever Princess Royal Wedding

Hope you guys don’t mind the variety of covers! I am currently listening to Princess on the Brink and it already has me giggling. I am reading this series through my Scribd subscription which when on a book buying ban or a bad library is worth it! They don’t have Princess Mia and Forever Princess on audiobook though, so those will be read through the e-books. Finishing the last the Royal Wedding via audiobook once more and I can’t wait to see how all the characters will continue to grow.

2. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan Queen

I plan on starting and finishing this book this weekend. It is due next week, so I want to get it done this time!

3. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon

I know I know I have had this book on my last 2 tbrs! I will finish it by Friday though because that is when it is due! I am going to get back to reading it after this post.

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and The Dawn

Another book I plan on starting this one this weekend too because it’s due on the 18th. It is a little big, so the sooner I start it the quicker I can get it done because I can’t renew it because other people are waiting for it.

5. Hot Blooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

Hot Blooded

Another book I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but I definitely need to read it soon! It is a library book and sadly it is not mine to take my time with…

6. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

Another one I haven’t gotten to this summer, but I really want to try it! It is getting a lot of love this summer and I want to love it too!

7. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

I want to read Reawakened Houck’s new book when it comes out, but I want to get reacquainted with her writing. I also really miss Kishan! I want to travel through this book too.

8. Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

I want to continue my reread of this series as a listen. I want to reconnect with these girls who I connect with.

9. Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott

Fire and Flood

I bought the e-book last month and I am very excited to read it. The premise has me very curious, but I hope it is fast paced!

10. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I’m hoping reading this will make my last semester of college less scary.. I mean if Harry faced Voldemort at 11; I can handle the “real” world right? I hope so…

11. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade

Honestly I am craving a reread and a strong female alpha, so I want to reread this. Plus it is one of my favorite series.

12. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Blood and Starlight

Another e-book I got on sale and I am super excited to continue this series! I adored the first book, so I cannot wait to see what happens next!

13.Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories

I am dying to continue on my Ahern kick! This is one of the audiobooks available through Scribd and I need more Ahern!

14.  Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

Another one that has been lingering on TBR too, but I know if I don’t get it done by the end of summer. It will have to wait until a break.

Well bookworms! That is some of the books I hope to read, but who knows if I will stick to it. My goal for the month as far as the number of books I want to read is 14. I’ve already read 3 books, so I think I can reach it! Have you read any of these? What is on your TBR? What is your monthly goal? Do rereads tear out your heart like they did the first time? Feel free to let me know in the comments! Happy Reading!

It is so odd and makes me feel so much better that 2015 hasn’t been the easiest year for me. My books are have what kept me going as well as this blog. So let’s get started and these books are in no particular order!

Top 10 Books That Stole My Heart in 2015

1.Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Stardust

I’ve gushed about this book on the first day of my challenge, but seriously this is the perfect story if you feel like you need a fairy-tale in your life!

2. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead

The Ruby Circle

This book was the perfect wrap-up for the series and some interesting reveals for the VA series that will leave you in shock! I love the strength and love in the book. There will be a special post involving this book ASAP, so be on the lookout. I do not want to see the VA world end and I’m hoping she will do some novellas I am yearning for!

3. Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead (Author), Emma Vieceli  (Illustrator), Leigh Dragoon (Adapter)

Vampire Academy Graphic Novel

Seriously this was amazing and made me love the story and world even more! I love how the illustrator captured their personalities perfectly through their gestures! Just need my own copy asap!

4. Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson's Greek Gods

I loved this book it provided me a laugh when I needed it. I love Percy’s sense of humor and I love the illustrations I want a paper copy of this too, so I can just show it off!

5. Pokemon Adventures Volume 1 by Hidenori Kusaka

Pokemon Volume 1

Honestly I am obsessed with these graphic novels. I have always been a big Pokemon freak whether it has been the show or the games. I am learning more about the world from the graphic novels and adoring it!

6. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty

I have gushed about this book a lot, but seriously it is my new favorite. I can’t help it! It’s good to have a not perfect all good herione

7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

This was an audiobook listen that I gifted myself. I loved the mythology and how it wove into it especially since I haven’t read much about Chimera. I am glad I waited till the hype died down to enjoy and form my own opinions of this book. Hope I love the next two books as well!

8. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour

Everything Leads to You

I loved the sweetness of this story as well as the innocence. The ability to find and accept yourself. The peek into movie making. It definitely hit my craving for a sweet kiss and I definitely would pick up something else by this author!

9. The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

The Book of Tomorrow

Honestly when I first started this story Tamara got on my nerves a bit, and I almost stopped listening, but I am more than happy I continued. She had some growth and it was a good coming of age story! Plus the nuns!

10. If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern

If You Could See Me Now

Honestly it was the sweetest story. It had harsh and sad parts, but it was needed to appreciate the sweetness. It also had amazing magical realism. I definitely need to own my own copy in all formats. This is definitely my second favorite Ahern book! She does not disappoint! Her books also take me traveling each time.

Well bookworms those are my choices for this time around! What are your favorite books so far? Have you read any of these books? What about books with magical realism? What’s your favorite Cecelia Ahern book if you’ve read any. Let me know and link me your Top Ten Tuesday post down below!
