All the book I’m Currently Reading!

All the Book I'm Currently Reading!

Today, I’ll be sharing the Books I’m Currently Reading – Every single one of them. And there’s a lot of them, so brace yourselves. I try to have a handful of books going at all times so that, no matter my energy level or mood, I have something that will fit the bill. Although lately my Currently Reading pile has gotten really out of hand and I should probably get around to finishing these soon.

So, listed below are the books that I’m currently reading. And hopefully I’ll finally get around to reading them. Hopefully, this will motivate me to finally pick these up again and finish them. Some are page turners that I’ll finish quickly, while others will be with me for awhile.

9045572

London by Edward Rutherfurd

This is a historical novel as big as London itself. It’s mostly due the size why I haven’t finished this one yet, I started it months ago. Edward Rutherford did an incredible amount of research and it all comes together beautifully from what I’ve read so far. The characters’ family trees carry through the entire history of Britain – pre-Roman through WWII. I decided to pick up this book because I absolutely love all the history in London, but this book is massive. 

35858290

Have Sword, Will Travel by Garth Nix & Sean Williams

This is a fantasy adventure involving two children, Eleanor and Odo, and a magic talking sword. Biter is an inspired creation – obliging but overbearing, always on the ready to avenge the slightest wrong, imagined or real. A classic sidekick in other words, keen of edge but less so in the brains department. I received this as a review copy, and I’ve also met the authors and got the book signed. But I’ve never read the book, or any books by these two authors, which actually makes me feel really bad considering the fact that I’ve met them.

The End of OZThe End of Oz by Danielle Paige

In April, I finally got around to continuing this series by reading Yellow Brick War, and so I started reading the fourth and last book in the series, The End of Oz. This is the conclusion to this series, so I really want to finish it, to complete another series. I absolutely love the feeling of finishing a series. Although I still have to read a lot of the Novella’s, this will complete the original novels, not including the novella’s, which I will eventually read as well. If you don’t already know, these are re-imaginings of The Wizard of Oz, and kinda acts almost as a Sequel series. Although, this one doesn’t actually take place in Oz like the others do, but in a place called Ev. 

untitledThe Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith

I started this one a while back after I watched the movie, which I loved, so I wanted to read the book. And Thriller is one of my favourite Genres’, so I’m really excited to continue this one, I was really enjoying. So I have no idea why I didn’t continue reading it. although, Knowing me it’s probably because I ended up picking up another books, that at the interested me more, but I really can’t remember. The Talented Mr. Ripley is an intense psychological thriller. It is a tale of obsession, murder, lying, and betrayal. Tom Ripley is the protagonist but he’s far from a hero. He doesn’t seem to be comfortable in his own skin, preferring to live a lie than to be himself. He’s a liar, thief, and eventually a murderer. I can’t wait to continue this!

11127The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

This is a bind-up edition of all the books. I love Narnia! They are such wonderful stories, paving the way for so many other fantasy worlds that followed. I loved the movies when I was younger, and I’ve still never read the books. So far I’ve read the first few. Narnia is a truly magical place, the stories iconic. I love this series.

Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

I’m glad I finally got around to starting this series and I’m so close to finishing. I’m not going to say too much about this one as I’m sure everybody’s already heard of this series. This is a really Fantastic series. I love the world building, and I can’t wait to finally finish this series. I think it’s about time, I am so behind on this, I feel like everyone’s read this except for me. Have you read this series? Let me know, so maybe I’m not the only one who hasn’t read this. 

33978711Cloaked in Shadow by Ben Alderson

I was really excited about this when it was first published and I still haven’t read it yet. The sequel was published a few months ago, and I wanted to finish reading this one, so I can read the sequel, I started this a while ago and still haven’t finished it, but I’ve enjoyed what I have read. I can’t believe I still haven’t read this yet!

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce 11985913

I love these books. This is the third book in the Fairytale Retellings Series, I enjoyed Sweetly, which is the second book. I haven’t read the first book yet, but you don’t really need to read them in order, it’s probably better to read them in order, but it’s not necessary, there individual books that feature different storylines, fairytales, and characters. These books are really well written. This one is inspired by The Little Mermaid. These books have element’s from a fairy tale just like the first two. Unlike the first two that had the bones of the Grimm brother’s stories, this was based very loosely on the little mermaid which was by Hans christen Anderson.

KittyKitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold

I was actually sent this books to review months ago – Correction, almost two years ago – and I still haven’t finished this yet, when I started reading this I was dealing with some stuff, so this kinda got abandoned at the bottom of my very large “Currently Reading” Pile. I really should get back to reading this book though. 

Chat With Me

That’s it for this post! I actually started this post months ago and never finished it until now, so I did have other books on this list that I have finished reading by now, basically this list was longer, but I’m finally getting through a lot of the currently reading books, which I will have reviews up for soon.

Have you read any of these? What did you think of them? I think I need a bit of a push to read these. So, If you’ve read any of these, please let me know what you thought of them. 

Lastly, I’m always looking for more books to read! Let me know your favourite books, or any recommendations and why you love them, in the comments below.

September 2018 TBR (#SequelSeptember, #OurLostLibrary, #ContemporaryAThon)

October TBR (1).png

Today I’m going to be sharing my September TBR. I didn’t do a TBR in August, which was probably good, Because I wouldn’t have Kept to it anyway, I’ve been in a weird reading mood, not that I actually keep to my TBR’s any other time. Anyway, Keep in mind that this isn’t all set in stone. I’m terrible at sticking to TBR’s. I can’t believe it’s already September! Where has all the time gone?!

Okay anyway, let’s get started on my TBR! I tried to keep this quite short, as I don’t really know how much I’ll be able to read, I’m going to be really busy this month. So, These are all the books I’m considering reading in September. 

Sequel September (#SequelSeptember)

(Saturday, September 1st – Sunday, September 30th)

This challenge is hosted by Kathy @ Books and Munches and is all about reading Sequels, I very rarely commit to series. I generally prefer reading standalone books, but I very often read a first book in a series and then just… never follow up on the sequels.

While I do love reading series, I often find that I very quickly get bored of them.There are some notable exceptions where I was willing to read 5+ books in a series, but that’s not often.

But I love the challenges by Kathy, and I have quite a few Sequels on my shelves that I would finally like to get through. So this seems like the perfect time to read through some of those sequels. These are not all of the sequels I own, but these are the ones I’m interested in reading this month. I’m going to keep this quite small, as this month I won’t really have much time for reading. 

OurLostLibrary (#OurLostLibrary, #LostAThon)

(Saturday, September 1st – Sunday, September 30th)

I will be doing the #OurLostLibrary Lost-A-Thon! This will be my first time Participating in this Readathon. OurLostLibrary is a readathon that uses the hashtag #LostAThon #OurLostLibrary. I am going to try to do one book per prompt. The challenges are fun and unique. I am really not expecting to finish them all but who knows! I guess we will see.

ContemporaryAThon (#Contemporaryathon)

(Monday, September 17th – Sunday, September 23rd)

So after a good while of planning here’s my ContemporaryAThon TBR that I’ll be *hopefully* reading. There are challenges, but I don’t think I’ll be completing them, I’m just going to use this time to read a few Contemporary books on my shelves that I want to get through. It is hosted by Chelsea from Chelseadolling reads, Julie from Pages and Pens, and Natasha from myreadingisodd.

Chat With Me

These are Some of the books I’m hoping to read this month. So, we’ll see which ones I end up reading and enjoying. What about you guys? Have you read any of the books I mentioned above? What books are on your TBR? What books are you looking forward to reading this month? Are you participating in any of these readathons/Reading Challenges this month? Are you participating in any other readathons/Challenges I didn’t mention in this post? How many books are you planning on reading this month? Let me know in the Comments! 

Happy Reading!

August 2018 Reading Wrap Up

October TBR.png

Today I’m going to be sharing my August Wrap up, last month I decided not to set a TBR and I didn’t participate in many Readathons, only the Manga Madness Readathon, which I hosted again last month month, you can check out my Wrap Up for that HERE:

So in August I read a total of 11 Books, not including any manga that I read. That’s a lot of books, but that was to make up for my lack of reading last month. Even though I love reading, sometimes it’s nice to take a bit of a break. I read some really good books last month, I’ll try to write up the reviews for a lot of them this month. I’ll also leave the link to any of these reviews. Anyway, let’s get into the wrap up. I’ve also included my August Favourites at the end of this post. So stay tuned for that to find out which of these were my Favourites. 

500 Kisses by Anyta Sunday (Review) – This was adorable! Here is yet another example of this author’s ability to tell a sweet and enduring story. I’m absolutely loving these stories!

She is not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick – A boring book at times. Not much happened, and the story at times made no sense. I didn’t like the notebook part, they are mostly too confusing or too boring and I didn’t really particularly care for them. I did love the fact that this book is about a blind person and how they do things. There should be more books with a blind main character.

Bird meets Cage by Anyta Sunday – I really enjoyed this short story, For most of this story I felt bereft and forlorn. The setting and characters were engaging. This story totally worked for me from start to finish, which is a testament to just how gifted Anyta is as an author. And it’s really short, so I got through this really quickly. 

The Sisters by Claire Douglas – The book starts off well as we meet all the characters and fall into the world. After a while this does become tiresome as everyone in their world seems to be near on perfect. The story wanes terribly throughout the middle as the same thing is repeated time and time again. But it was fairly easy to work out where the story line was going and wrapped up fairly quickly; abruptly even. I would have liked more fleshing out of what happened to the characters at the end. To sum up. It wasn’t as good as I was expecting but not a bad read.

Admiring Ash by Anyta Sunday – I was lucky enough to get review copies of all three of the Love Letters Books from the Author. I absolutely love her books, and couldn’t resist reading all of these as well. I am always excited about new Anyta Sunday books. She is the queen of slow burn and this one isn’t any different. It wasn’t my favourite of the first 3 in this series, but this was my second favourite. 

Begging Ben by Anyta Sunday – This one begins with Ben and his best friend Landon on the outs. In the first book they were inseparable, even as Landon was pining for Chance. Ben and Landon, both of whom we’ve met in Admiring Ash have a very complicated present, where they find themselves sharing a ton of history but uncertain of whether they’ll share something in the future. Begging Ben is my favourite Love Letters novella so far.

Challenging Chance by Anyta Sunday – This one was my Least Favourite, I didn’t like the romance as much, or the characters, or the Story line. I didn’t like Chance based on the other books in this series, this book was suppose to somewhat redeem him, but I still don’t like him very much. I still enjoyed this one, but It didn’t keep my interest as much as the first two did. 

DJ Dangerfield by Anyta Sunday – Another book by Anyta Sunday.  One more down as I continue to work my way through Anyta Sunday stories and, as usual, this one did not disappoint. While I didn’t enjoy this one as much as some of her others, this was still a fun, enjoyable read. 

Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti – Okay, I was really, really excited to read this book. You know, that name, that cover… but it wasn’t what I expected. It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t great either. I probably won’t be continuing this series.

Follow Me by Ricky Dillon – Personally, I did enjoy this book. I don’t really like reading autobiographies by Celebrities or YouTube Stars, but this was quite interesting, I don’t feel like I learnt anything new by reading this book, I did enjoy reading the Challenges throughout the book though. 

Rock by Anyta Sunday – This is not one of my Favourites by her, but still enjoyable. I read this book in one sitting. This book is very well written and captivating, as Anyta’s books usually are.

August Favourites:

What about you guys? Have you read any of the books I mentioned above? What Books did you read in August? Did you participate in any of these? Let me know in the Comments!

TBR Unwrapping #2

unWrapping my TBR Books

Recently, I decided to wrap up some of my books and select titles randomly to read every month, you can find my first Unwrapping HERE, and also my post about Gift Wrapping my TBR Books! So, today I’ll be doing another Unwrapping. 

I will also be doing my wrap up for last months books as well. So, Let’s start with what I read last month in August. I chose to read 10 books from my TBR, and the Goal was to complete 5 of those books.

Did I complete this goal? No! Out of 10 books, I only read 2.But I also realised that I’m actually not going to read From this Moment on by Shania Twain. I’m not a big fan of reading about celebrities. I’m still going to keep the book for now, I’m just not going to be reading it. That’s still pretty Good considering that I did start a third book, I started reading The Complete fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm, which has 1000 pages, and I managed to read 330 Pages. Now, time to see which books I completed. 

I might try to read the rest of them this month. There’s still 7 books that I need to read. But for now let’s get on to the second unwrapping, This time I’m going to unwrap 1 book from each genre, except fantasy. While fantasy is my favourite genre, I’m not feeling in the mood for it right now and I still have the other two fantasy books from last month. So, for now no fantasy. 

So again: The Gold Heart Paper Represents Romance/Contemporary. The Colourful Stars Paper represents Fantasy/Paranormal/Science Fiction. The White Flamingo Paper represents Thriller/Horror/Crime/Mystery. The White Flower Paper represents Classics/Historical Fiction. The Colourful ZigZag Paper represents Non-Fiction. The Silver Paper represents ARC’S/Review Copies. The Gold Floral Vines Paper Represents my Most Anticipated books. And the Happy Birthday Paper represents Recently Bought/Received.

Also, sorry in advance for the terrible photos. All these photos were taken at night in my Room, which has terrible lighting. Anyway, let’s get on with it.

Romance/Contemporary:

IMG_2596

IMG_2551The Disreputable History of Frankie-Banks by E. Lockhart

So, let’s start with Romance/Contemporary. This one has been on my TBR for ages. My excitement level for this one has gone done a lot since I first got it, but I would still like to finally read it. I’ve read two other books by E. Lockhart; We Were Liars and Genuine Fraud, I enjoyed them both, so I’m hoping to enjoy this one too. 

IMG_2598

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

This one has been on my TBR for ages as well, it’s also been in my Book Haul/TBR Revisits for a while as well. This is also set in Paris, as you can tell by the Title. This one I picked up mostly because it’s set in Paris. It has Paris and Bookshop in the title, enough said. I don’t actually know much about this book though. 

Mystery/Thriller/Horror/Crime:

IMG_2599

IMG_2600

Niceville by Carsten Stroud

Another Book I’ve had on my shelf for way too long. I got this at a book sale 1-2 years ago. I actually don’t remember how long now, it might have been longer. I bought it without knowing anything about it. I have quite a collection of unread Mystery, Crime, and Thriller books, that were mostly bought from book sales. It’s the best place to buy books of that genre.

Classics/Historical Fiction:

IMG_2603

IMG_2605

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

I really want to read this one, but I wasn’t planning on unwrapping any classics this month, as I wanted to get through the ones from last month, and read some of the ones I didn’t wrap up. I was hoping this would be historical Fiction. I’ve read A Christmas Carol and enjoyed it, I’ve also read some of his ghost short stories. I do like his work, and I still haven’t read this one yet. Maybe I’ll read it this month and I own a lot of his books, so it’s probably about time I made a bit of a dent in it. 

IMG_2606

Chat With Me

All these books will be going on my nightstand and I’ll choose what I feel like reading throughout this month. My TBR for this month will also be going up separately in a few days with the readathons I’ll be participating in! I’m going to try to read at least 4 of these. Have you read any of these? What did you think of it? Is there a title you’d recommend I start with?

So, as usual, I won’t be unhauling any books that I haven’t read (unless I know I won’t get around to it, or I’m not interested in it anymore) but it will still be interesting to see how I’ve done! Let’s just get into this! So, I ended up reading 4/58 of the books I planned to read and that was:

I’m currently reading or started reading some of the other books last month. So, these are the books that I’m going to make top priority this month to read, and try to finish off these ones:

So that’s 61 books! That’s a lot of books, this number just keeps going up, I don’t know how many I’ll be able to get through and I am really behind on this, Instead of reading these ones, I keep buying new books and Prioritising those ones. I’m hoping to get through 10 of these. 

And again, I’ll be doing this each month, I’ll keep a monthly tally. And I’ll summarise each previous month. So that each month we can figure out how I did after last month’s revisit and keep track of how many books I have to read

I’m looking forward to reading all of these books, although some more than others, So I’ll see how I go with these! There a quite a few here that I lost all interest in, but I don’t want to unhaul them either. Have you read any of these books and if so, which was your favourite? Thoughts? Any of these on your TBR? Which ones do you recommend I read first?

Have you read The Wicked Years Series? If so, What did you think of it? I read the first one a while back, and I really want to continue the series, but I don’t know If I’m going to enjoy them. Let me know in the comments. Let me know what you all thought of each of these books if you read them or if you want to read them!

Review: Gemini Keeps Capricorn by Anyta Sunday

Leo loves Aries by Anyta Sunday (1)36423306

Gemini Keeps Capricorn by Anyta Sunday
Publication Date: December 18th 2017
Series: Signs of Love, #3
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, LGBTQIA+
Format: eBook
Pages: 268
Rating: 4 Stars
Date Read: March 17th, 2018
Links: Goodreads B&NAmazon

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.

Wesley loves annoying his RA, Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred.

Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.

It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.

Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.

What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time…

“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA.
It can be read as a standalone.

Tropes: friends-to-lovers, slow burn, will-they-or-won’t-they, fake fiancé
Genre: New Adult, light-hearted contemporary gay romance.

This series is a pure joy to read. When I pick up an Anyta Sunday story, I know, unequivocally, that I’m about to be faced with the most perfectly-paced slow burn romance out there. In my mind, she’s unrivalled in this area. And I don’t usually like reading Romances. 

The dialogue is always fun and playful, filled flirtatiousness that knows no bounds. It serves to keep the reader fully engaged and eager to soak up the next words uttered. The characters themselves are also extremely well-developed and relatable. They’re the kind of people I want to be friends with, pure and simple.

This particular instalment is a new adult college themed M/M romance. The Main Characters , Wesley and Lloyd, have been friends for years, with Wesley being an unenthusiastic law student but passionate barista who flirts with Lloyd, his college dorm RA and (yet to be acknowledged) best friend.

There is a lot of flirty banter and plenty of romantic undertones to every interaction Wes and Lloyd share. Lloyd is a rule follower, and as an RA he is forbidden to get involved with any dorm residents under his care. In contrast, Wes is cheeky, fun-loving and most certainly not a follower of rules – if anything, he enjoys actively breaking them. He also trusts in the powers of astrological compatibility, and although he secretly adores Lloyd, he believes that Gemini’s are most certainly not compatible with stubborn and straight-laced Capricorns!

“When did you know I liked you?”

“When you realised I was your best friend.”

Wesley has convinced himself that he, a Gemini, and Lloyd, a Capricorn and the resident assistant on his floor, aren’t compatible. All this does not stop him from flirting with Lloyd though. 

24554434I really enjoyed this quirky edition to this series! It’s Probably my least favourite in this series, but still enjoyable. I loved the banter, the games, and both MC’s never failed to make me smile. Gemini Keeps Capricorn is nothing short of entertaining and it made me happy the whole time I was reading it.
