Top Ten Short Books

It’s ironic that this is the topic while I’m hosting a readathon for reading short books!
So here is a list of the best short books I’ve ever read…

The Foretelling by Alice Hofman
Strong female lead, no romance, amazonian warriors – a must read.

Saga Vol 1 by Brian K Vaughan
The only graphic novel I have yet to enjoy and cant wait to continue

The Emporers Soul by Brandon Sanderson
Possibly the greatest short read on this list!!

Birth of the Firebringer by Meredith Ann Pierce
For unicorn lovers of all ages

The Outsiders by S E Hinton
A much loved classic

The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
The most incredible sci-fi adventure of 2016

Alanna The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
A Fantasy classic and the book that started my love for the genre

Summer of Sloane by Erin L Schneider
A sweep-you-up summer read that I read in 24 hours

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
Had me in stitches and touched my heart, such an important read.

Books I (Unexpectedly) Loved

These are all books I’ve read in the last year or so that surprised me for various reasons.

HYPE!

I’m always hesitant when there’s a lot of hype surrounding a book, and I sort of expect to think it’s not as good as everyone claims. In this case I was so wrong, in the best way!

NOT FOR ME

I had looked at both of these books previous to blogging and written them off as not for me. Fast forward to post blogging me and I decided I had to give them a try. It’s books like these that make me so glad I became a part of the blogging community.

UNKNOWN

I didn’t know these authors before reading these books, and I just picked them up on a whim. I was blown away by all of them.

CLASSICS

Of the classics Ive read I havent really enjoyed many of them, so I was hesitant about Anne. I listened to the audiobook and it made me smile and laugh and I am just so glad that I read this book.

BY THE SAME AUTHOR

I read Rae Carson’s Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy and love the first, really liked the second and just liked the third. So, going into Walk On Earth A Stranger I was hopeful but unsure. I LOVED it, even more than the first book in her other series. I can’t wait for book two.

I enjoy Illuminae and saw looked into both authors to see what else they had written. I saw that These Broken Stars was on audio on Overdrive and decided to give it a try. I figured it had some tough competition since it’s in space like Illuminae, but it was so good in its own way.

That’s all! I would love to hear about the book that pleasantly surprised you! Recently. Of all time. What ever it may be, I would love to hear about it.
Thanks for reading!

Series I Plan to Finish In 2017

On of my blogging goals this year is to finish at least ten series. So, when this TTT Freebie came up I thought it would be a good time to share with you which series I plan to complete.

Also, not pictured here, but equally excited to finish in 2017 are:
Throne of Glass #6
Illuminae Files #3
And Gold Seer Trilogy Book #3

So many endings!! I will have to stock up on tissues.

Please let me know in the comments which series finale you are most excited for.

Happy Reading!

New 2016 Series I Meant To Read

There were quite a few sequels and finales released in 2016 that I meant to read but I had already planned to talk about them in another post. So, for this TTT, I decided to talk just about the new series that began in 2016 that I meant to read.

  1. Riders by Veronica Rossi – A book I wouldn’t never have picked up had I not read the chapter sampler. Now I need to know what happens in the rest of the book! Picked up a copy from Book Outlet and it has just sat on my shelf, waiting.
  2. The Shadow Queen by C J Redwine – I was so excited about this one that I pre-ordered a signed copy! AND it has dragons in it. How could I have dropped the ball on this one?
  3. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken – I really wanted to wait until I was done her Darkest Minds series before starting this one but I cant wait any longer!

4. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi – I hear good things about it everywhere on Twitter and Booktube so I asked my library to get a copy and they did!
5. These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker – My #otspsecretsister gave me an ARC of this last year and Im shamed to say that I still havent read it. Sorry Amanda!
6. The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine – This one sat on my radar for a long time and even though I’ve heard mixed things I want to try it for myself
7. Front Lines by Michael Grant – I met a fellow bookworm last year quite unexpectedly, and she recommended this to me.

8. Nevernight by Jat Kristoff – I got caught up in all the hype and ordered a special edition… now I’m afraid I wont like it! Does anyone else ever feel that way?
9. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – I love bees so the premise behind this book just enchants me, I have excuse for not reading this one yet.
10. True Born by L E Sterling – It’s by a Canadian author!! It isn’t often I come across a book by a Canadian author that interests me so I must read this ASAP!

See anything you read? Meant to read?

Let me know in the comments below which of these I need to read right away! And if you also still need to read any of these 2016 release, let me know, maybe we can budy read?!
