5 Stars Predictions: Books on my priority TBR

 

predictions 1.png

Hello friends!

If you’ve read my wrap-up then you know that this is going to be a new bimonthly feature I’m adding to the blog where I’ll -try to- choose a theme for every post and choose books that fall Under said theme that I think I will be rating 5 stars. For this post I chose books that are on my “READ THEM RIGHT NOW DAMN IT TBR”, or in less screamy words: My priority TBR. Books that I’m either dying to read but somehow never got around to or books that are on their way to me right now that I know I’ll read as soon as they’re here.

 

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I know, I KNOW, I’m the worst. I’ve owned this book since last december and just…never picked it up and I honestly do not have a legitimate reason other than I kept pushing it off until June or July, I think? and then I made the conscious decision to read it right before watching the movie, so IT’S HAPPENING FOLKS, I’m reading this book this month. The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan is one I’ve been hearing extremely amazing things about. All my friends adore it so of course I want to join them in their love. I meant to read it right when I got it but it’s quite heavy and my mental health wasn’t the best so I kept postponing it until now. I’m actually buddy-reading this one next week with my friend, Em @ Runaway with Dream Thieves.

These next two I preordered a couple weeks ago and I’M SO HYPED. Both are ownvoices Asian fantasy books. First up is The Storyteller by Traci Chee, and GKFLDLSLSM I NEED IT NOW!!! It’s the third and last instalment in The Sea of Ink and Gold trilogy, I loved The Reader, adored The Speaker and with how that one ended and all the teasers the author has been giving, I just need this one. I need to know my babies are okay. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan is one I’ve been trying to get my hand on the arc of for MONTHS now but it just never happened, from what I’ve heard, it’s brutal and brilliant and has sapphic asian girls in it. So really, I don’t need to know more than that.

 

 

A lil backstory about The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang. My friend, Andrea, and I have the exact same taste in Fantasy books, all her top favourite books are mine as well, so a few months ago she read it and DMed me yelling about how much she loved it and that I should read it ASAP, she even went and got me a copy, that’s how much she wanted me to get to it haha, but again, this is a very heavy book so I didn’t get to it but I’m committing myself to reading it before the end of the year. A Reaper at the Gates, on the other hand, is one I haven’t read yet out of sheer fear, Sabaa Tahir terrifies me and I’ve heard this one will destroy me so I’m just in happy denial about it. That being said, it’s also one I’m committing myself to reading before the end of 2018.

The last two, are books by authors who wrote some of my favourite books of all time. Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee is one I’ve been meaning to buy for over a year now and I finally ordered it a couple weeks ago (along with my own physical copy of Under a Painted Sky, FINALLY), it’s historical fiction set in early 20th century, in an all girls private school in San Francisco around the time it’s hit by a huge earthquake. Yes, please. I’m also slowly making my way through all of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books and One True Loves is next on the list. It just sounds so heartbreaking as well as something that will feed my soul so I’m excited to get to it.


That’s it until next time.

Have you rated any of these books 5 stars?

What are some books on your TBR you think will be 5 star reads for you?

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

Hello friends!

You’re not dreaming, I’M POSTING A WRAP-UP!!! I haven’t posted one since… uh… June. So, three months. Well, to be fair, I’ve barely done any blogging since then. But anyway, I’M HERE AND BACK AT IT. This month was actually and objectively a good one on all fronts! Continue reading

TAG #42: The 20 Questions Book Tag

 

20 questions.png

Hello friends!

It’s been a long while since I did one of these good ol’ question tags, and I’m pretty sure I did one very similar to this one when I first started but it’s probably over two years old now, I changed AND have gained quite the amount of followers since then, so even if some of these questions I’ve answered before it’s gonna feel like new.

The 20 Questions tag was created by buydebook on Goodreads and I was tagged by the lovely Sumedha @ The Wordy Habitat  quite the while back (in March oops) but since I don’t get around to doing tags that much anymore, I’m only doing it now! Continue reading

Most Anticipated Releases of 2018: July – December

2018 releases pt 2

Hello friends!

It’s the last week of June (…How?) so it’s time to share with you all the books I’m highly anticipating for the second half of the year. This one is a little shorter than the one I did for the first six months simply because I have no books for December (not many release during the month, and the ones that do that I am aware of, don’t really interest me) and also because somehow quite a few books I was excited for got pushed to early 2019 *wails*, off the top of my head, this happened to AT LEAST 3 of my most anticipated releases. Anyway, here goes my list: Continue reading

Summer break is Here and so Am I

 

Back from hiatus.png

Hello friends!

I’M BACK!!! HAVE YOU MISSED ME?

Either way, I missed this blog, visiting others blogs and talking to everyone! During these two months I thought about starting to schedule posts ahead of time to make my return easier for me, but has it happened?… NOPE. I’d wake up motivated but by the time I finish studying, I’d be so exhausted that I’d flop down face first on my bed. So I’m writing this post Sunday, meaning last night when you’re reading this. So much for being ahead of things… Continue reading

To sum-up: March 2018

2018 March .png

Hello friends !

March has been quite the rough month for me to be honest in all aspects of life, mentally, physically, life-ly, you think about it, I was having a hard time at it. Buuuut I had some decision making to do and once that was done I started feeling a bit better and things started looking up so let’s cross our fingers, they keep doing that way. Continue reading

Tag #40 : Brooklyn Nine-Nine Book Tag

B99

Hello friends !

If you didn’t know, I am Brooklyn Nine-Nine trash. Like really, that show is my biggest stress relief and I love it to pieces. So it was only normal I would jump on the opportunity to do a tag about it when I found out my friend Em (they do not have a blog anymore) was doing one. Okay but my love for it being professed, it still has its problem, mainly ableism, fatmisia and acemisia so be aware of those things if you decide to watch it. I don’t want anyone getting hurt by its content. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into the tag.
