November Wrap-Up!

monthly wrapup

Hey everyone! Can you even believe November is over?!  I swear this past month was only three days.  November was a super busy month for me, which means I spent very little time reading and blogging.

I ended up reading a total of two books last month!

BOOKS READ

– Twelve Slays of Christmas by Jacqueline Frost (ebook) \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

– It’s a Wonderful Night by Jaimie Admans (ebook) \\ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

 

STANDOUT BOOK OF THE MONTH

IMG_4650.jpg

I’ll be honest, I really adored both of the books I read in November.  I’ve decided to go with Twelve Slays of Christmas as my book of the month though, just because I did not expect to enjoy this one nearly as much as I did.  It was the perfect mix of mystery and Christmas and I just loved this one so much!

 

BOOKS REVIEWED

The Grownup by Gillian Flynn \\ ⭐⭐⭐

 

BOOK HAUL

IMG_4649.jpg

I bought one book in November, and I am so excited to read it in December! It is A Nancy Drew Christmas!  If you’ve been following me for a while, I’m sure you know I absolutely love Nancy Drew.  I’ve been collecting the classic series for years now, and when I found out about this new book, I just had to have it.  This book will be such a fun one to read in December! 🙂🎄

 

MISCELLANEOUS 

holidays-1

Aside from my October wrap-up, my only other post was for bringing back my Countdown to Christmas series.  Last Sunday, I kicked off Countdown to Christmas 2018 with Skipping Christmas by John Grisham!


And that wraps up my November, lol.  This month was definitely a quiet one, but I’m looking forward to reading and blogging a lot more in December!  I’ve decided to participate in Blogmas again this year, so hopefully, that means I’ll be posting every day during the month of December. I have a lot of ideas planned and I’m super excited for what next month has in store. So, please, wish me luck!!

Thanks for reading!

replica

I thought Replica by Lauren Oliver was such a unique and intriguing read! From the format to the storyline, this book really hooked me!

fall-tag-2

Frenzy was such a great ending to an already great series!  This entire book series drew me in on the very first page of the very first book and hooked me until the end!

fall-tag-3

16101128

The 5th Wave was filled with so much action and adventure! This book was utterly un-put-down-able!

fall-tag-4

a map of days

A Map of Days is the book I’ve been anticipating most for the entirety of 2018! It just came out earlier this month, but I still haven’t been able to get a copy.  I am so eager to read this book!!

fall-tag-5

save the date

This book gave me all the feels!  From the family relationships Charlie and her family have, to just Bill in general, to the fact that Andie and Clark from The Unexpected Everything made a cameo appearance, Save the Date gave me all the warm and fuzzies!!

BOWD2

Witch
A Magical Character or Book.

miss peregrine

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is such a magical and enchanting book.  It’s so mysterious with so many unique and magical characters.

Werewolf
The Perfect Book to Read at Night.

the dreadful tale of prosper redding

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding is such a fun book to read for Halloween.  It’s spooky and mysterious, but not too spooky, which makes it a perfect book to read at night, because I’m a scaredy cat and don’t want to read something super scary before bed!

Frankenstein
A Book that Truly Shocked You.

genuine fraud

This book was so twisty!  Genuine Fraud really took me by surprise and didn’t go at all how I expected.

The Devil
A Dark, Evil Character.

Black

The villain in Black really encompasses the whole “dark, evil character” for this one!

 

Grim Reaper
A Character that Should Never Have Died.

allegiant

If you’ve read this book, I’m sure you’ll agree.  That’s all I’m going to say.

Zombie
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More.

the princess diaires

Pretty much every single Meg Cabot book leaves me “hungry” for more.  She is one of my favorite authors, and all her books are just so enjoyable and utterly readable!

Gargoyle
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost.

anne of green gables

I love Anne Shirley with my entire bookish heart and soul.  She is my favorite and I would root for her and protect her always.

Vampire
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You.

breakfast at tiffany's

I just did not care for Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  The writing style was not for me, and I felt so disconnected the entire time I read it.

Ghost
A Book that Still Haunts You.

On Pointe

On Pointe is a book that definitely haunts me, but in the best way possible.  This book really touched me.  Even though it’s been quite a few years since I’ve read it, it’s still one that I think about often.

Demon
A Book that Really Scared You.

the diviners

I know I’ve shared my story about hearing whistling in the night while reading The Diviners, but y’all, that freaked me out so much!! Hearing some random person whistling down the street at almost midnight, while the bad guy is in the book is doing the same does not make a good combo.  Not only that, but this book is just overall so creepy.

Skeleton
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With.

unraveling

I don’t even know why, but the main character, Janelle, just rubbed me the wrong way.  Plus, the whole time I read this book, all I could think about was Jenelle from Teen Mom 2. 😂

Mummy
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time.

the secret of the old clock.jpg

Nancy Drew is my original favorite.  This series was the first one that I actually really fangirled with, and it will forever be my favorite.  So really, I would preserve any of the classic Nancy Drew books for all time so she would always be remembered!

Creepy Doll
A Cover too Scary to Look At.

in a dark dark room.jpg

Okay, yes, this cover isn’t too scary to look at, but as a kid I sure thought it was!  Plus, who wasn’t afraid of The Green Ribbon story in this book?!  Talk about traumatizing!

The Monster Mash
It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween!

October TBR!

October TBR.png

Hey everyone, and welcome to the first day of Blogtober! In case you missed my announcement, I’m participating in Blogtober and Blogoween, which means you can expect a new post from me every single day during the month of October.

To start things off, today I’m going to be sharing some of the books I hope to get through this month.  I don’t typically have set, monthly TBR’s, but because it is October, and Halloween is just around the corner, I have several, festive books I really want to get through this month.

So, without further ado, here’s my October TBR:

And The Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich

IMG_3418

I recently picked this book up from my library’s book sale, and was instantly intrigued by the synopsis.  I hadn’t heard of this book before, but it sounds so spooky and mysterious – perfect for the month of October!

 

Hocus Pocus & The All-New Sequel by A. W. Jantha

IMG_3419.jpg

Like many of you, I feel like Hocus Pocus is such a classic Halloween movie.  When I found out about this book, I was so excited.  This is going to be such a fun and festive book to read!

 

Small Spaces by Katherine Arden

IMG_3420.jpg

I discovered this book while watching Mel to the Any’s Instagram stories.  She ended up loving this book, and hearing her talk about how good it was really made me want to read it!  Small Spaces looks like it’s going to be such a fun and quick, spooky read!

 

The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

IMG_3423.jpg

I’ve totally been meaning to read this book for the past two Octobers, and I just end up never getting to it.  My fingers are crossed that this will be the year I actually read this book!  Also, how cool is the cover for this one?!

 

Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie

IMG_3426.jpg

Hallowe’en Party is another book I keep meaning to read and then never get to.  I love a good mystery, and I’ve actually really been in the mood for a mystery, so I’m hopeful this is the year I actually read this one!

 


And there you have it! I actually have hopes to read other books, too, especially during the Sbooktober Readathon, but these are the books I really hope to get to the most. So, please wish me good luck, and hopefully, I’ll be able to get to all of these and more! 🤞🏼

What are some of the books on YOUR October TBR? I’d love to know!

Thanks for reading!

Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR!

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

TOP TEN Books on My Fall TBR

Hello everyone! I apologize for being so quite on my blog this past week!  September is always a busy month for me, and so my blogging and reading has slipped a bit these past few weeks.  That being said, things are starting to be more manageable again, and my blogging should become more frequent again soon! 🎉

Alright, today I’m sharing with you ten of the books I hope to read this fall!  My TBR is endless, so it was actually quite hard to narrow it down to ten, because I just want to read ALL the books.

So, without further ado, here’s my ten:

1

I’ve heard so many amazing things about The Miniaturist, and now with the new mini-series on PBS, I’m so excited to get to this book soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

2

From what everyone tells me about this one, Greenwillow is such a delight to read!  I checked this book out from the library a while back, and I’ve just kept renewing it.  So, I really want to get to this one soon before I acquire a late fee! 🙈

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

3

Rebecca is another book I checked out from the library, so I really need to read this one ASAP!  I’ve heard it’s such an incredible, gothic novel, and with it coming into fall, I think this one will make such a perfect read.

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

4

Okay, so if you celebrate Halloween, you know all about Hocus Pocus!  It’s such a classic Halloween movie.  So, when I found out about this book, I was super excited. This book is going to make such a great, Halloween read! 🎃

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

5

I keep meaning to read A Discovery of Witches, but then I always get distracted by other books and put it off.  I’m really hoping to read it this fall, though.  I think it’ll make another great, Halloween-y read.  Plus, I saw the trailer for the TV show which really made me want to read this book even more!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

6

Sunrise Cabin looks like such a fun and romantic story.  Plus, it looks like it’s going to have a great, autumnal vibe, which is perfect for a fall TBR!

Check it out on Goodreads!

7

The Witch of Willow Hall sounds like such an intriguing and mysterious novel.  I’m actually going to be participating in a blog tour for this book, later in October, so I am so pumped to read this one!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

8

I love books about ballet, and Tiny Pretty Things has been on my TBR since it came out.  So, when I found a copy at my library’s book sale for $0.25, I just had to get it! I’m so excited to read this book very soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

9

I just have to laugh/cry to myself a little that The Sweet Far Thing is still on my TBR.  It’s been on my TBR for SO long now, it’s almost embarrassing.  Will I finally read it?!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

10

I’ve been meaning to read One of Us is Lying since it was first released.  I have a copy and everything, but for some reason, I just haven’t picked it up yet.  So, I’m really hoping to actually get to this one soon!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 


That wraps up this week’s Top Ten Tuesday!  Here’s hoping I actually get to all of these books this fall.  Knowing me, I won’t, but I’m going to try! 😆

What books are on your fall TBR?

Top Five Favorite Required Reading Books

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

Favorite Required Reading Books

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, was a freebie for anything back to school related.  I’ve decided to share share my favorite books that I’ve been required to read for school, because even though there’s been quite a few books I didn’t love, over the years, I’ve also read quite a few books that I actually did end up loving!  Also, because school actually started back up this week for me, I only had time for a top 5 today, because I’m still getting into the swing of things.

Alright, let’s get started:

Anne of Green Gables

anne of green gables

Many of you probably know about my love for all things Anne of Green Gables, but you may not be aware that the first time I read this book, it was for school!  I was in 5th grade, and I absolutely fell in love with this book!  I related to Anne so much, and I just loved everything about it.

Check it out on Goodreads!

The Secret Garden

the secret garden

Fifth grade was a really great year for me when it came to required reading.  The Secret Garden is another book I read that school year that I ended up loving, too.  The first time I read it, I do remember struggling with it a little bit, but eventually I fell in love with this story, and it has been a favorite of mine ever since!

Check it out on Goodreads!

And Then There Were None

and then there were none.jpg

I took a mystery literature course in high school, and one of the books we had to read was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.  This book was so mysterious and compelling. I ended up absolutely loving it!

Check it out on Goodreads!

The Hound of the Baskervilles

the hounds of the baskerville.jpgAnother mystery novel I read for school that I adored was The Hound of the Baskervilles.  It was the first, and so far, only Sherlock Holmes novel that I’ve read, but I was so intrigued with this book from the beginning to the very end.  I read this one in the 8th grade, so it’s been a while since I’ve read it.  I’ve actually been wanting to reread it, so maybe I’ll do that soon! I’d love to see what I think of it now!

Check it out on Goodreads!

Island of the Blue Dolphins

island of the blue dolphins

I read Island of the Blue Dolphins way back in the 4th grade, so I’ll be honest, I don’t remember everything that happens in this book.  That being said, I remember loving this story so much!  It was one of those books that I was just completely captivated by.  This is another one that I would like to eventually reread, because I remember loving it so much, and I’d like to see what I think of it now!

Check it out on Goodreads!


That wraps up this week’s TTT!  Sorry this post was shorter, but life has been busy.  Hopefully I’ll be back to posting full Top Ten Tuesday’s soon!

What are some of the books you read for school that you ended up loving more than you expected?

Top Five Books To Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

BOOKS THAT PULL YOU OUT OF A READING SLUMP

Ah, reading slumps…how we loathe them!  Yet, despite that, we’ve all fallen into a slump or two that just does not want to leave us.  This week is a busy week for me, so I’m only able to do a top five today, but I’m sharing five books that have helped me get out of reading slumps, and will, hopefully, pull you out of yours, too!

Everything, Everything

everything everything

 

I think Everything Everything is such a great book to help you get out of a reading slump!  The actual book is fairly short, there are also a lot illustrations and part in emails and texts, and this book is just so readable that once you start you won’t want to stop until it’s over!

 

 

Check out my review!

 

 

The Princess Diaries

the princess diaires

Honestly, anything by Meg Cabot could be on this week’s list.  She is one of my favorite authors, and all of her books are just so well-written and readable.  The Princess Diaries, in particular, is one of my favorites.  Mia is such a sassy and memorable character!  Plus, the entire book is written in journal entries, which always makes for a fun and quick read!

 

 

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

Twilight

twilight

Say what you will about Twilight, but there is a reason it was as popular as it was.  This book encouraged so many people to be readers.  Twilight is so fun and mysterious, and it is one book that will quickly grab your attention, which makes it perfect to help you out of a reading slump.

 

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

 

The Program

11366397

When I first read The Program, I actually remember that I was on the verge of a reading slump.  I was in the middle of a readathon, and I wasn’t doing as well as I had hoped.  I picked this book up only because it matched one of the challenges.  I ended up devouring The Program!  I read this book so quickly and did not ever want to put it down.  It was so intriguing and kept me glued to the pages until the very last one.

 

Check out my review!

 

The Hunger Games

the hunger games

Just like Twilight, there’s definitely a reason why this series was so popular!  The Hunger Games is just written in a way that makes you never want to stop reading.  It’s been years since I first read The Hunger Games, and yet, this series has still stuck with me.  I really need to reread it soon!

 

 

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 


That wraps up this week’s TTT!  As you can probably tell, for me, YA contemporaries and dystopians are the books that help me escape those dreaded reading slumps.  An old favorite always helps, too!

What are some books that help you get out of reading slumps?

#CLASSICSATHON TBR!

classicsathon.png

Hello!  Today I’m going to share with you all the classic books I hope to read during the month of August for the #ClassicsAThon, hosted by Lucy Powrie, AKA, Lucy The Reader!  This is a super chill readathon, and it started August 1st, and goes throughout the entire month of August, ending on the 31st.  I’m jumping in a few days late, but that’s okay, I’m going with it!  The goal of the readathon is simply to read as much, or as little, classic literature as you want.

I’m sure I won’t get to all the books on my TBR, especially since I have other, non-classic books that I hope to read this month as well, but it would be really nice if I was able to read as many of them as I can.  I also think the #ClassicsAThon will really compliment my own #2018ClassicsChallenge, and help cross off a few more books!

So, without further ado, here’s all the classic books I want to read this month:

The Count of Monte Cristo

IMG_2553.jpg

I’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo off and on all summer.  One of my summer goals was to read a large classic, and with over 1,000 pages, this book has been doing its job!  That being said, I’m only on chapter 20, so I still have quite a while to go.  While I don’t know if I’ll be able to actually finish the entire book this month, I’d really like to get a good chunk of it read!

The Trees

the trees.jpg

I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about this book.  I found out about The Trees from my grandma, and it’s supposed to be really good.  It takes place in Ohio at the end of the 18th century, and from what I’ve gathered, it’s a bit of an Ohioan classic.  Since I live in Ohio, I thought I’d give it a read!

Elsie’s Holiday at Roselands

elsie holiday at roselands.jpg

This series is considered a Christian classic, but it’s also a bit controversial.  It was written back when slavery was still acceptable, and so, there are some derogatory comments and abusive actions in this book.  That being said, the series was rewritten and revised in the early 2000’s and that series was one of my favorites when I was growing up.  Now that I’m older, I’m curious about the original series though, and I’ve started reading it.  Elsie’s Holiday at Roselands is book 2 in the series!

Anne of Ingleside

IMG_2551.jpg

Many of you know my love for Anne!  So, it’s no surprise that I would want to add a book from this series on my TBR.  I’ve been hesitant to read the rest of the Anne series for the simple fact that I love these books so much I don’t wan them to end.  That being said, I still really want to finish the series.  So, I’ve decided it’s time to continue on!

Rebecca

IMG_2556.jpg

I can’t even tell you how many wonderful things I’ve heard about Rebecca!  This book sounds so intriguing, and it is one that has been on my TBR for so long now.  I am so excited to read this book!


And there you have it!  That’s my TBR for the #ClassicsAThon!  Like I said, I probably won’t get these all read, but I’m hoping to get a good amount of reading done this month, so we shall see.

Let me know if you’re participating in this readathon, and if you are, what’s on your TBR?  Even if you’re not participating this time around, share with me your favorite classic book in the comments!

Thanks for reading!

Books That Bring Back Memories

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:

Books That Bring Back Memories

This week’s topic was so unique and intriguing!  The books for this week are ones with very specific memories attached to reading them.  Some of these memories are meaningful, while others are completely random, yet, I still have strong memories attached.

Junie B. Jones Has A Peep in her Pocket

junie b jones

I received Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket for my 6th birthday.  It was the first chapter book I ever remember getting, and I was SO excited.  I have a super distinct memory of unwrapping this gift and then, later that day, reading the first chapter of it in my sister’s room.

 

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

 

The Clue in the Old Album

the clue in the old album.jpg

The Clue in the Old Album was the first Nancy Drew book I ever read.  I have a super specific memory of reading this book while driving to a Christmas tree festival we go to every year.  At the part of the book I was at, Nancy was at a formal concert, and then, when we walked into the Christmas tree festival, there was also a little concert going on.  This memory doesn’t seem very significant, but for some reason, to this day, I still always think about that scene in The Clue in the Old Album every year I go to the Christmas tree festival.

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

The Diviners

the diviners.jpg

Okay, so I read The Diviners a couple years back when I was looking for a spooky, October read.  Well, this one definitely delivered.  So, one night, I was reading this book, while the rest of the house was asleep (bad move, Theresa, bad move…), and I got to a really creepy part of the book, in which the bad guy was whistling.  Well, I had my window open a crack and what do I hear?!  Someone walking down the street, whistling!! 😭😭😭  It was probably almost midnight! Why was some random person walking down my street whistling?!  After that, I was traumatized and never read this book at night again.

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

Twilight

twilightMy grandparents bought me Twilight in the summer of 2008, just because they were at the bookstore and knew how much I loved to read.  One of the employees there recommended Twilight to them as a book I might like.  At the time, I was a lot less aware of which books were popular, and I had never heard of it before, but I was so excited and intrigued!   My sister was also really obsessed with I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie at the time.  So, I have really vivid memories of sitting on my back porch and reading huge chunks of this book in one sitting, because I just couldn’t get enough, while that song was playing in the other room.  😂 It still reminds me of Twilight to this day!

Check it out on Goodreads!

 

Since You’ve Been Gone

18189606 (1)

 

Since You’ve Been Gone brings back such fun and summer-y memories for me.  It was the first Morgan Matson book I ever read, and I remember checking it out from the library just in time for summer vacation.  I finished reading it while waiting for a parade to start, and I just remember feeling so in the prime of summer while reading this book.

 

 

Check it out on Goodreads!

 


That wraps up this week’s Top Ten Tuesday.  It was only a Top Five this week, but that’s because I wanted to stick with books that featured memories that really meant something to me.

What are some books that you’ve read that bring back strong memories?
