We are almost finished reading A thousand splendid suns in my English class, it was heartbreaking and really interesting. I wasn’t expecting to become so invested in the story so it was better than I initially thought.

Whenever I feel like I’m in a slump and I cant even get myself to listen to an audio book, graphic novels are my savior. I really enjoyed Ms.Marvel because I have always wanted to read some marvel comics, and its really daunting to find a place to start. the story was super fun and I really enjoyed it!

I recently got my copy of Tunnel of bones in the mail and it’s so beautiful. I am so exited to read it because I loved the first one, and I just love Victoria Schwab.

TTT Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes

20180415_0850161855715862.png

Top ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this weeks topic is Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes

Both of these books make me think of Autumn because of the orange colours, and of course the pumpkins!

There is something about books set in school or suburban areas that makes me think of September and the fall time.

October is spooky season so these somewhat creepy books definitely make me think of Fall.

Photography LinkedIn Post Header(1)

First off sorry for not posting in such a long time, I am at a very interesting and busy time in my life. As a result my hobbies like reading and blogging have been thrown out the window a little bit. Last month I read good omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and I really liked the book and the show ๐Ÿ™‚

I have had zero motivation to read lately so I am about half way though Tell me how you really feel, and I am dying for it to pick up the pace. Maybe it is just the genre but I feel like nothing is actually happening. I really hope I like the second half though.

I had my expectations low for We are okay but it was actually a fairly good book. It wasn’t mind blowing or anything but the grief and the relationships were really interesting.

TTT Books On My TBR Iโ€™m Avoiding Reading

20180415_0850161855715862.png

Top ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this weeks topic is Books On My TBR Iโ€™m Avoiding Reading and Why

I am kind of hesitant to carry on with the Throne of glass books, even though they are supposed to be a lot different than the first two so I just keep putting it off. I took Furyborn out of the library last year and got scared to read it because of the size and gave it back. I haven’t wanted to try and read it again.

I keep telling myself I want to read The bear and the nightingale in the winter time but then i never do. The lady’s guide to petticoats and piracy interested me because I love her character, but I didn’t love the first book so I am avoiding reading it.

I haven’t read the original Sherlock book A study in Charlotte is a spinoff of, and I listened to a sample and hated the audio book narrator so I have been putting it off. I have heard completely mixed reviews about Daisy Jones and the six so just avoided it all together, I still want to give it a chance eventually though.

Arc review: We are the lost and found

43298077Michael is content to live in the shadow of his best friends, James, an enigmatic teen performance artist who everyone wants and no one can have and Becky, who calls things as she sees them, while doing all she can to protect those she loves. His brother, Connor, has already been kicked out of the house for being gay and laying low seems to be his only chance to avoid the same fate.

To pass the time before graduation, Michael hangs out at The Echo where he can dance and forget about his father’s angry words, the pressures of school, and the looming threat of AIDS, a disease that everyone is talking about, but no one understands.

Then he meets Gabriel, a boy who actually sees him. A boy who, unlike seemingly everyone else in New York City, is interested in him and not James. And Michael has to decide what he’s willing to risk to be himself.

First off a trigger warning for homophobia and abuse. I gave this book 4 stars for the personal feeling that the writing gives, and the look into the AIDS crisis during the 80’s. I feel like I learned so much that was never taught to me in school and I only vaguely knew about. The point of view works well because no one really had any facts about the virus at the time because they didn’t research or educate people about it.

The coming of age aspect is great as well because he is so conflicted being in the closet with not accepting parents that already kicked his brother out. He is also struggling with first love and hearing all the rumors about AIDS and not knowing how to protect himself.

My only complaints about the book is that the characters could have been more fleshed out, for example his best friend Becky has a drug addict mom that is never really addressed. The main characters mother does nothing to address abusive behavior that is happening to her kids, and they don’t go more in depth about how she might be scared or why she acts the way she does.

August Wrapup + September TBR

Photography LinkedIn Post Header(1)

This month was interesting and I managed to read another 9 books which is great. I turned 17 and failed my drivers test, which is disappointing even though its a 50% pass rate in my city.ย  I am so scared for September because I am going back to school and I am so not ready for pre-calculus 12. I have no idea if I will have enough time for reading and blogging anymore, so I am sorry if my posts get really lazy.

September TBR

These are two of my most anticipated books and my library actually has them!! So I am hoping to read them.

Ever since I watched good omens I knew I had to read it so I have had a hold on the audio book and I am so exited! I have been meaning to read This savage song and just haven’t so hopefully I will get to it.
