Talk about it Tuesday

Hello, lovelies! That dreadful Monday is over whew! First off I want to say Happee Birthdae Harry! I decided that I am going to reread Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone today 🙂 hqdefault

I also wanted to talk about the fact that All the Bright Places is being turned into A MOVIE!!! That book is one of the best books that I read last year, and I can’t stop rereading it. I simply adore that book and might be slightly obsessed with it…. I saw that Jennifer finally cast the role for Finch ❤ he will be played by Justice Smith. It was a little disappointing that everyone was upset about who she chose for Finch because he “wasn’t” who they pictured but in all honestly each and every person isn’t going to picture finch the same way. We read the book, and we create how the characters look. While I haven’t watched that many movies with him in it if she thinks he is the best person to play Finch then who I am to disagree. Though I did see him in Everyday, I thought that movie was terrible. The book was a million times better.

Most Anticipated Monday

The Wicked King by Holly Black

Expected publication: January 8th, 2019

-Summary-
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.


I just finished the Cruel Prince a few weeks ago and O.M.G I loved it! The way the story is going, I can’t wait to see how it ends. The only thing that sucks about finding a book you really is having to wait 5 MONTHS before you get to find out what happens next! I will be impatiently waiting for this. If you have an ARC and want to part with it, don’t hesitate to send it my way 😉 haha just kidding! ❤

Well, lovelies that’s my most anticipated read for Monday! What book are you impatiently waiting for?

Sum up Sunday!

Wow! Does anyone else feel like this month went by uber fast? This year is just flying by. Since this is the last Sunday of July, I will just give a quick summary of everything that I liked and disliked this month.

I read a total of 7 books this month. I’d say that’s not to bad 🙂 It is one more than I read last month. I have two favorite books this month. I gave both books 5-star reviews, but I couldn’t decide which one I liked more. My top two are the Cruel Prince by Holly Black and Rust & Stardust by T.Greenwood. I somewhat have a list of books that I hope to read next month, but like always I’ll probably just wing it 😉 . I can’t really say that I had a book that I disliked I had a couple of three-star ratings, but I wouldn’t say that I didn’t like them I just felt like they lacked a little bit. The Outsider was one of those books.  It moved really well but towards the end, it just slowed down, and I thought it took forever to end.

As for my bookstagram, I entered into a lot of rep searched, but since I’m new to the whole bookstagram, I’m not excepting to win any.

I’m hoping I have much better luck next month with the books I read, I want book hangers and more than two 5 star books!

 

Featured Five Friday!

It is finallllyyy Friday! I am definitely looking forward to the weekend. Here are my five new picks for this weeks Featured Five! Hope you like them 🙂

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal

Published June 13th, 2017

Summary; Every woman has a secret life . . .Nikki lives in cosmopolitan West London, where she tends bar at the local pub. The daughter of Indian immigrants, she’s spent most of her twenty-odd years distancing herself from the traditional Sikh community of her childhood, preferring a more independent (that is, Western) life. When her father’s death leaves the family financially strapped, Nikki, a law school dropout, impulsively takes a job teaching a “creative writing” course at the community center in the beating heart of London’s close-knit Punjabi community.

Because of a miscommunication, the proper Sikh widows who show up are expecting to learn basic English literacy, not the art of short-story writing. When one of the widows finds a book of sexy stories in English and shares it with the class, Nikki realizes that beneath their white dupattas, her students have a wealth of fantasies and memories. Eager to liberate these modest women, she teaches them how to express their untold stories, unleashing creativity of the most unexpected—and exciting—kind.

Thriller Thursday

Hello, fellow thriller seekers! If you are reading this you managed to survive the week so far! For this thriller Thursday I decided to pick Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. I’m assuming it counts as a thriller. I choose this book because it is the book that I am currently reading at the moment. I also can’t wait to watch CastleRock Tonight!

Mr. Mercedes (Bill Hodges Trilogy #1) by Stephen King

Summary: In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.

In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the “perk” and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy.

Brady Hartsfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with two new, unusual allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady’s next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands.

Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

For it is only by piecing together the mysteries of her lives that Jules will be able to save the person who has captured her own heart in this one.

Talk about it Tuesday.

Hellooo book lovers! If you are reading this, then you survived another Monday! Which marks today Talk about it Tuesday! The topic for today will be focused on the to be read pile.
