What are you currently reading?

Uprooted

Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I’m reading this book incredibly slow but I’m still enjoying what I’m reading. I’m still not 100% sure what the story is about yet but I think I have a general idea. I’m reading my physical copy as well as a library book so it’s easier to take with me (I can read on my phone or on my computer at work). I also borrowed the audiobook from the library so I can listen to some of it before bed. I’m not a huge fan of the narrator though.

You Should See Me in a Crown

What did you finish reading?

You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson. This book was everything. It makes me so happy. I picked it to on a whim and I’m so glad I did! You can read my review here if you would like 😊

What do you think you’ll read next?

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

Honestly, I’m not sure. I’m kind of in the mood for some dark spooky books. But I also don’t want to burn myself out from reading those before October 🤣 I might try and reread Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I started it a few years ago and enjoyed what I read. I just feel into a stupid reading slump and never finished it.


Do you guys have any spooky book recommendations? What are your 3 Ws? Let me know down below ❤

I’m reading this story as of Sunday, January 22nd, 2017. This may change by the time this blog post goes up but I’ll be lazy to change it XD I recently finished the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo so I figured I’d read this dulogy because I missed the world of the Grisha. This book had a slow beginning and I wasn’t too keen on the characters but they’re starting the grow on me. 🙂 Review will sure be here soon on the blog 😀

 Synopsis:

The capital has fallen.

The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova’s amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling’s secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

I was satisfied with the ending to this trilogy until I read someones spoiler review of it on goodreads. I still loved the books but my opinion on how the story ended has changed a little. Overall, I still higly recommend this trilogy! If you’ve read it, check out my spoiler discussion! 😀

Synopsis:

Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.

It was hard to copy this synopsis and write here and not spoil myself for this book (because I currently haven’t finished Six of Crows yet). However, I’m excited to see where the story goes. The first book is decent so far 🙂

Synopsis:

Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you’d have to fear.

I read this series back in 2o12 and remembered loving it. I read books 1-3 but completely forget there was a 4th book coming out. I recently purchased the 4th book so I decided to reread the series and finish it. It’s a fantastic book about pixies. Plus the characters are hilarious! 


Finished Reading:
 The Replacement
Synopsis:

Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement, left in the crib of a
human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world.

Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate’s baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs.

I sadly was not a fan of this book. I had a lot of problems with it. I’ll be posting a review in a few days. I felt like the synopsis completely ruined the whole book. Everyone that happens in the synopsis didn’t happen until the very end of the book. *heavy sigh*



Girl in PiecesReading Next:

Synopsis:

Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.
Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.
A deeply moving portrait of a teenage girl on the verge of losing herself and the journey she must take to survive in her own skin, Kathleen Glasgow’s debut is heartbreakingly real and unflinchingly honest. It’s a story you won’t be able to look away from.

[Goodreads]

To be completely honest, I’ll probably read the second book to Need first then possibly the 4th book in the Lorien Legacies, but I’m planning on reading this for my November TBR. So it counts, right? I’m craving some heavy topic books because I’ve been into a lot of fantasy lately.
