I know it’s Wednesday, and that I forgot to do this
yesterday, but what you need to know about that is: shut up. Orange is the New
Black is taking over my life. It’s friggin’ awesome. It makes me very excited
and happy and it makes me irrationally angry, like at Caputo’s moustache, and
at Larry. And I friggin’ love Fischer. I just met her and I love her. Anyways.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is top ten books on your fall TBR list. I chose
books I’m excited to read this fall. Yeah. It’ll be great. As always, this meme
is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish and let’s go.
Yeah, the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, was
fucking amazing. It was so, so GOOD. The story is astounding, the love story
was beautiful, the characters are so fantastic, there are chimaera, which made
me so excited. I love it when there are different supernatural characters, not
more vampires. But finally, the WRITING is so fantastic. It is so poetic, so
beautiful, so lyrical and wonderful. The way Laini Taylor uses words is just
astounding. Oh my God. I’ve heard the second book is less lyrical, but it’s
still awesome sauce, so I’m excited.
This is a middle grade book and the first book, The
Hero’s guide to Saving Your Kingdom, is really hilarious. It’s sort of a fairy
tale retelling where Christopher takes the Princes Charming, Fredric
(Cinderella’s Prince), Gustav (Rapunzel’s Prince), Liam (Sleeping Beauty’s
Prince) and Duncan (Snow White’s Prince), and sends them on their own
adventure. The boys are sick of just being Prince Charming and the girls
getting the attention. They find a plot to take down the kingdom and they go to
fix it. It was hilarious and I hope the sequel is equally delightful
The first book is really freaking awesome, and I've wanted to read the second one forever. I'm not entirely sure why I haven't read it yet, but I'm so excited to read it.
This is the last book in a trilogy. A trilogy I
started reading with quite a lot of cynicism. I didn’t really think I’d like
it. I thought it would be silly and Twilight-y. I don’t know what it is, but
it’s just very delightful and not Twilight-y. The series is awesome. I love it.
I have read the first two, and I’m deeply excited to read the last one. I need
it to be awesome. I need to read about Nastasya and Reyn, I need the
awesome-ness and the weirdness.
I have an A-Z challenge on Goodreads and I needed an
author for Y. And Yovanoff seems awesome. The book is about a kid named Mackie
who was moved from his world to our world. He wants to be normal and not be a
Replacement. It sounds so intriguing, and Yovanoff sounds really cool. I’m very
excited. Also: gorgeous, creepy cover.
Vampire with a conscience and a unicorn, awesome. Also
the vampire seems consciences, but she isn’t Angel from Buffy. It’s about a
vampire who gets stabbed in the heart by a unicorn and she becomes a vampire
who can withstand sunlight and all that fun stuff. It sounds cool.
This is a book I wanna read because John Green said it
was good and it’s about vampires, good vampires, not good as in good hearted.
Good as in good, creepy vampires, it’s exciting. It’s about a girl who wakes up
after a massacre and something about becoming a vampire. I’m not sure what the
thing is, but it seems really cool.
People keep saying this book is amazing. A girl moves
in with a foster family in 1939 in Nazi Germany. She learns how to read from
her foster father and she shares stolen books with her neighbours, and the
Jewish man her foster family is hiding in the basement.
So I can finish my A-Z challenge I need an author
starting with E. And I chose Mr Eco. It’s about Europe in the 19th
century. There are secret police, massacres and black masses. What if there is
just one man behind all of the conspiracies. It sounds cool and exciting and
history fiction like. I’m excited.
The Dust of 100 Dogs by A. S. King
The book is about a young pirate lady
in the 17th century. Then she is cursed and doomed to live one hundred
lives as a dog before becoming a human again, with all her memories. Now she’s
an American teenager who needs a shovel and a ride to Jamaica. It sounds damn
awesome. I love pirates. I grew up on pirates. I love pirates, and I think it’s
going to be hilarious.
