JUST A TYPICAL SUNDAY WITH MY DISEASED LIVING-ZOMBIE FRIENDS // ILLUMINAE BY AMIE KAUFMAN & JAY KRISTOFF

This was a psychotic, hilarious, tear-wrenching, ingenious emotional roller coaster of a novel. And I f**king loved it. God, I loved it. It’s only January, but I already have the book that just might make the top of my fantasy reads this year. ALSO DID YOU KNOW THAT IT’S GOING TO BE A SERIES?! #mindblown

If you might be shying away from this book, like I was, because it has a strange unique format and you’re not sure if you’ll understand the plot and characters through it, TRUST ME: the style only increases the depth, suspense, and emotional pull. I was immediately sucked in, and the switches of POV and plotlines wasn’t hard to figure out at all. It’s basically the story of how two spaceships ran away from the big bad terrorist spaceship, but it’s all so much more complex and layered.

THESE ANTIQUE BOOKS ARE ALMOST TOO INVALUABLE FOR MY WISHLIST

I’ve always loved the smell of books. New and old, hardcover or paperback, they always have this heart-warming scent to them.

I’ve also always enjoyed collecting books, and Invaluable.com popped in on my email list to ask me if I’d want to take a peek at some of their antique novels and compile a little wishlist. This sounds really fun and also probably jealousy-inducing, but shhh… we will focus on the fun part.

THE FIVE STAGES OF OBSESSION – PART 1: PEOPLE

I think I can safely say that we’ve all read/watched at least ONE thing about ‘The Five Stages of Fangirling’. And they are funny and accurate and #sorelatable, but… has anyone really delved into this topic? THERE IS SO MUCH CRAZINESS TO BE EXPLORED.

So I’ve had the brilliant thought to create a blog series about The Five Stages of Fangirling Obsession, because let’s be real: we’re not casual fans, we’re psychotic stalkers who buy merchandise at an alarmingly fast rate.

CHAOTIC BATTLE AND I THINK I’M IN LOVE // DAYS OF BLOOD & STARLIGHT BY LAINI TAYLOR

Too much happened and THE WORLD WENT INSANE (all of them), but I still loved every second of it. Zuzana is the f***ing best, man.

And on a rather amazing side note, I think I’m in love with Akiva, our tortured angelic friend. He is the most loyal boyfriend of EVER. But it also helps that he has a smokin’ hot body *quite literally, hahaha*

STALKING THROUGH MY GOODREADS TBR // TOP TEN TUESDAY #12

Whilst I’m randomly stalking browsing my library’s shelves, I love to obsessively add ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that looks interesting to my Goodreads TBR. How obsessively, you might ask? Well, judging by the 449 books on that shelf, I would guess extremely.

But it’s Tuesday, and we have a slightly boring *but nevertheless fine* prompt this week: what are the last ten books on your TBR? So let’s troll through my Goodreads shelves and rant about why we want to read books so much! And moaning about how we haven’t gotten to them yet, because trust me, that’s a given for these kind of posts.

HEY THERE, NEW YEAR… PLEASE DON’T STRESS ME OUT TOO MUCH // 2016 GOALS & RESOLUTIONS

image

2015 was a fantastic year. I started this blog, I got on Goodreads, Twitter, AND Instagram, and most importantly, I started making some amazing bookish friends. SO THANK YOU, ALL MY CUPCAKES, FOR YOUR WISE WORDS AND RECOMMENDATION-FULL HANDS.

But it’s time for my inner demonic competitive spirit to take the lead, as I challenge myself with New Year’s resolutions of the most epic proportions.

Let’s hope I don’t go too overboard.

WHY DID I TAKE SOOOO LONG TO READ NEW RELEASES LAST YEAR?! // TTT #11

top ten tuesday

Hello again! It’s been a long while since I posted, and I hope you’ll all forgive the brief hiatus. I got really sick for over two weeks, and just barely had enough energy to draft a few posts for the coming week. But I’m feeling lots better now, and after some hard Sherlock marathoning and a few cups of tea, I’ll be right back on track.

It’s Tuesday, and we all know what that means: it’s time to link up with my good friends over at The Broke and Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday! This week, we’re lamenting over our egregious lollygagging (a.k.a listing how many books published in 2015 that we failed to read).

So, join me while I moan and groan over my lack of keeping up-to-date with current releases, because who doesn’t find that entertaining? *laughs at own misery*
