My reread of City of Ashes went splendidly. I think I enjoyed it more this time around than I did the first time. It was nice to refresh my memory on some details that I forgot.

If I Was Your Girl was okay. I think I ended up giving it 3 stars. I enjoyed the premise of the book and a look into what this transgender girl was going through, but it read too young. Something was a little off for me that I didn’t end up really loving it. But it was still enjoyable. If you overlook that annoying open ended last chapter!

Before I Fall was meh. 2 stars. I didn’t really enjoy this as much and was just bored. I am looking forward to the movie still though!

Continuing my reread of TMI via audio book is just so much. I am loving it so much!

As for Fangirl…I am a little bored with this too because there isn’t much of an actual plot? I know so many rave about this book so I am feeling a little underwhelmed. I enjoy Cath and Levi so far, but nothing is really going on and I am totally skimming all the Simon and Baz parts. Don’t mind the excerpts before chapters, but the pages and pages of fanfic? Kind of losing me here. 😦 sigh I don’t know.

Wow I can’t believe  I haven’t done a WWW since December! I am so sorry! I fell into a bit of a slump so I didn’t feel like updating reading progress that just wasn’t happening. But here I am again! And I have some great books that I just read and am reading 🙂

When Life Gets in the Way was a fun read. I have a review for it, if you are interested.

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is my favorite book right now. It was so unbelievably cute and wonderful that I had to read it twice!

History is All You Left Me. ❤ I lovelovelovelove this book. Beautiful and heartbreaking. Must read!

Crystal Storm was fun too. No denying it’s a Falling Kingdoms entertaining read, but it felt a little slow. Not much really happened and it felt like such a filler. I can’t wait for the last book though!

coaI am actually reading this again on audiobook. I started watching season two of shadowhunters and realized I remembered so little. So I decided to read this again just for a refresher course. I am having such a great time being back with the gang! Especially at the beginning 😀

 

 

 

 

if-i-was-your-girl-meredith-russoListening to this on audiobook as part of my “i am trying to read more diverse books” this year.
goodreads synopsis:
Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school in Lambertville, Tennessee. Like any other girl, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret. There’s a reason why she transferred schools for her senior year, and why she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

And then she meets Grant Everett. Grant is unlike anyone she’s ever met—open, honest, kind—and Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself…including her past. But she’s terrified that once she tells Grant the truth, he won’t be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It’s that she used to be Andrew.

I just checked these out from my library. Before I Fall because it’s going to be a movie and I wanted to read it first. I hope it’s good? I didn’t really like Delirium from Oliver so I didn’t continue. I am a bit skeptical of this one so we will see!

Welp, that’s my reading progress! Have you read any of these books? What did you think of Before I Fall if you read it? Did you read History is All You Left me yet? You need to ❤

This is like my favorite guilty pleasure trilogy right now. These books are ridiculously addicting! Yes, a bit problematic and has its issues, but so addicting. I think the drama gets a little too silly sometimes. Also, the writing can get a bit cheesy, but I can’t deny how entertaining they are. Plus, the cliffhangers at the end are so frustrating!

Thank god, Cassidy from Little Book Cottage warned me to get the last 2 books together so I could marathon them!

twistedpalace

These Royals will ruin you…

From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.

Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.
They may be right.

With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.

And now thank goodness I have the next to continue!

Top 5 Villains I Love to Hate

villains

Hello, I missed this week’s Top 5 Wednesday, but I really liked the topic so…better late than never. 🙂

5. Negan | the Walking Dead

negan

I am sure many will be shocked by this because of what happened to one of our beloved characters (he’s my favorite too. I cried :’) ) but Negan is the craziest characters I’ve read about. He is evil. Pure crazy, but he also cracks me up! Especially in the comics!

4. Holland & the cray cray twins | A Darker Shade of Magic

holland

I really liked Holland in ADSOM. I don’t really think of him as a true “villain” but I have to include him because I was really interested in his story. I can’t wait to read more about him.

3. The Jackal | Red Rising

jackal

This crazy is a psychopath. One of my favorite characters from the Red Rising trilogy because of how twisted he is.

2. The Darkling | The Grisha Trilogy

darkling

The Darkling has one of the best villain storylines. By the end of the trilogy I was bawling my eyes for him. His tragic past just got to me. Especially when we learn his real name. Ugh 😥

I hate him, but I also love him a little too. Such complexity!

1. Captain Jonathon “Black Jack” Randall | Outlander

bjr

There is no one i hate more than this a$$hole. Oh my gosh he is the literal worst! He makes me sick to my stomach. He’s a sadist psychopath. I am still not over his last scene from Outlander. I couldn’t even read it because I was physically sick.

I don’t know if I really “love” to hate him, but I loathe this man. So he’s included


Well there you have it! Some of my favorite villains. Who makes your list of favorite villains? 

until next time xxoo

Giving Thanks…to those Book Boyfriends Who Make Us Swoon

thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends/followers! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family eating lots of turkey (or whatever). Be thankful for everything in your life ❤

I am thankful for you. For sticking with me since day one. 🙂

  Now today and I am going to give thanks to those wonderful book boyfriends who make me swoon ❤

10 Benton James Kessler

November 9 is still one of my favorites and when I think of an amazing book boyfriend, I think of Ben too. He was so sweet and who doesn’t love a guy aspiring to be a novelist? Plus, he’s such an adorable dork.

9. Sevro au Barca

sevroRed Rising | This guy is hilarious! Not only is he the best best friend, but he would be the greatest boyfriend and that’s why I choose him as one of mine 😉 Seriously, I dare you to read the Red Rising trilogy and dare you not to laugh at this goofball.

8. Julian Blackthorn

julianThe Dark Artifices | Jules, ah Jules. He has so much on his plate and just needs some good loving. Of course it would be ideal if it were from Emma, but I wouldn’t mind volunteering for the job 😉

 

 

 

 

 

7. Magiano

The Young Elites | Now I was definitely in love with Enzo from the beginning, but once Magiano stepped into our lives I was done for. He is swift, funny, a thief, luxurious, and just downright swoon-worthy. I shipped him and Adelina so hard!

6. Niklas Malikov

Illuminae Files | This is a new addition since I read Gemina. Oh jeez, Nik made me swoon. I love his flirting and his loyalty. Can I have him please?

I am in desperate need of some fanart of this beautiful guy!

5. Khalid Ibn al-rashid

The Wrath and the Dawn | Again, where is the fanart?! I want to see this beautiful soul in picture form! But agh, I continue to want ot reread this book just so I can get another dose of Khalid. He is so broken. He has some great development. Trust me. You’ll swoon too I promise.

4. Dorian Havilliard

dorianhThrone of Glass | How many of you are surprised by this? I am pretty sure you can predict which ones are going to come up next too. But anyway! Dorian is a precious cupcake. Protect him at all costs!!!

He has some great character development too. I love watching him get a grip on his powers and really come into his own. The only thing I am not too fond of is his ridiculous pairing with Manon. I hate this and he deserves more. Not just some random pairing that came out of left field. Blah.

Oh well. I will still swoon ❤

3. William Herondale

willhThe Infernal Devices | Hello William ❤ Oh man oh man. We all swoon over Will, don’t we?

I definitely can’t help but love this beautiful tortured soul.

Plus, black hair, blue eyes? My weakness.

 

 

 

 

2. James Alexander Malcolm Fraser

I am just going to leave this here….
