So November has a bunch if things going on in my life. As of writing this post, we are 3 days into NaNoWriMo. School is also starting to wind down for the fall semester. Work is picking up as usual.

It’s going to be one crazy month.

So I’m only giving myself 4 books to read this month!

Here are those books:

  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (reread)
  • Misery by Stephen King
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Weekend Reads and October Wrap Up!!

Hey guys!! Today I am here for another installment of Weekend Reads and I’m combining it with my wrap up for October!

So starting off with the books that I read in October. I didn’t have the best reading month in October. I thought I would have a lot more time to read than I actually did. School got busy. I was still working long hours at my part-time job. Then I started prepping for NaNoWriMo (post about that coming later this week!). It was just one crazy month.

But with that being said, here are the books that I managed to read last month!

  • Saga Volume 9 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples: 5/5
  • A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult: 3.5/5
  • Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer (sent to me for review by the author) (reread): 4/5

As always I have full reviews for A Spark of Light and Heart of Mist up here on the blog!

Now going into my weekend reads for this week (or should I say past 2 weeks!). So here is the 1 (yes 1) book that I managed to finish over these past couple of weeks:

  • The Assassin’s Blade: The Throne of Glass novellas by Sarah J. Maas (reread): 5/5

And here is what I’m currently reading:

  • Misery by Stephen King
  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (reread)
  • Reign of Mist by Helen Scheuerer (sent to me as an ARC by the author)

So those were all the books that I read last month plus what I’m currently reading!

What did you guys read in October? What are currently reading? Let me know in the comments!

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult

39072210

Synopsis:

“The warm fall day starts like any other at the Center—a women’s reproductive health services clinic—its staff offering care to anyone who passes through its doors. Then, in late morning, a desperate and distraught gunman bursts in and opens fire, taking all inside hostage.

After rushing to the scene, Hugh McElroy, a police hostage negotiator, sets up a perimeter and begins making a plan to communicate with the gunman. As his phone vibrates with incoming text messages he glances at it and, to his horror, finds out that his fifteen-year-old daughter, Wren, is inside the clinic.

But Wren is not alone. She will share the next and tensest few hours of her young life with a cast of unforgettable characters: A nurse who calms her own panic in order save the life of a wounded woman. A doctor who does his work not in spite of his faith but because of it, and who will find that faith tested as never before. A pro-life protester disguised as a patient who now stands in the cross hairs of the same rage she herself has felt. A young woman who has come to terminate her pregnancy. And the disturbed individual himself, vowing to be heard.

Told in a daring and enthralling narrative structure that counts backward through the hours of the standoff, this is a story that traces its way back to what brought each of these very different individuals to the same place on this fateful day.

Jodi Picoult—one of the most fearless writers of our time—tackles a complicated issue in this gripping and nuanced novel. How do we balance the rights of pregnant women with the rights of the unborn they carry? What does it mean to be a good parent? A Spark of Light will inspire debate, conversation . . . and, hopefully, understanding.”

Good Luck With That by Kristin Higgins

36950133

Synopsis:

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it’s coming to terms with the survivor’s guilt she’s carried around since her twin sister’s death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it’s about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother’s and brother’s ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson’s dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.”

Weekend Reads 10/21/18 and Life Update!

Hey guys! Long time no blog!!

It’s been over a month since I last posted here on the blog but I am finally back to do another installment of my series Weekend Reads as well as a life update!!

So I’m going to start off with my life update. It’s been a crazy couple of months in my life. I’m back at school part time for the fall semester and focusing a lot of my time on that. On top of that, I’m working at my job 5 days a week now so when I’m not at school, that’s basically what I’ve been doing. Also, I’ve become pretty addicted to video games since the beginning of summer so yeah that happened.

Going into the reading aspects of this life update, I’ve not been reading as much as I would like to. I’ve been in a MASSIVE reading slump since the end of June and it seems like no matter how hard I try I can’t get out of it. I will feel myself starting to get out of it one week and the next week I’ll be right back into it.

So that’s basically why I haven’t been posting on here.

With that said, if you guys want a kind of behind the scenes look at my reading (along with some other fun bookish stuff!) you can check out my YouTube channel here! I post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!! I’m actually about to hit 100 subscribers on there so it would mean a lot of you guys went over and checked it out!! 🙂

But now let’s getting into my reading!

So here are the books that I have read in the weeks since I last posted:

  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (reread): 4/5
  • Good Luck With That by Kristin Higgins: 2/5
  • Saga Volume 9 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples: 5/5
  • A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult: 3.5/5
  • Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer: 4/5

And here is what I am currently reading:

  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (reread)
  • Reign of Mist by Helen Scheuerer (sent to me for review by the author)
  • Misery by Stephen King

So yeah. That’s my life update and what’s going on with my reading! I promise that I will be back to posting these every week from here on out and be back to reviewing books sometime this week!

What have you read recently? Do you have any tips on getting out of a reading slump? Let me know in the comments!

Weekend Reads! 9/9/18

Hi guys!! Today I am here to do another installment in my series Weekend Reads (the first one in almost a month!)

So since I last did a weekend reads post, not much of my reading has changed. If  you follow  my YouTube channel (which you find here!) you would know that I have been in a MASSIVE reading slump since the middle of June. I just haven’t had the motivation to read and I think that is mostly due to my new gaming addiction. I’ve been really getting into gaming recently and it seems like that I have focused more of my attention on that instead of reading the books on my TBR.

But with that being said, here is the one book that I have managed to read since my last post:

  • All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover: 4/5

And here is what I am currently reading:

  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (reread)
  • Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer (reread)

So that is what has been happening in my reading life recently. Hopefully I will have more of an update next week.

What have you read recently? Let me know in the comments!

September 2018 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am here to tell you about all of the books that I plan on reading in the month of September!

So September going to be yet another busy month. This month is when I start school for the fall semester and on top of that my hours at work are going to be picking up as well so I won’t have as much time to read.

But with that being said, here are the books that I would love to try and get to this month:

  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (reread) (currently reading)
  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (reread)
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik (my book club’s book of the month)
  • Happyland: A Fairy Tale in Two Parts by Tes Mekonnen and Anthony Resto (sent to me for review by the author)
  • The Host by Stephanie Meyer
  • Unwind by Neil Shusterman

As always I will have full reviews for all of these books as soon as I finish them (expect for Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows due to the fact that I already have reviews for them up on the blog). I will also try to get at least one review up in my YouTube channel (which you can check out here!)
