Spring Clean Unhaul

Today is supposed to be a Sunday Shopping post but I thought I would do something different. With more stuff always coming in, I have to make room for them by getting rid of things. So this week I have decided to do an unhaul instead. There were more books in this list but others have already gone through my unhaul pile and claimed things for themselves and I cannot remember them all. This list contains series where I have done the first book and don’t want to continue, books I have lost interest in ever readings, ones I am unsure of where they actually came from, ones i have doubles of, and ones I know I will never reread and don’t think I need anymore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Im curious how you guys unhaul your books. Do you tend to get rid of them one at a time or do you have moments where you just cull a bunch like I do? I want to try and start doing it one by one though as I read books and decide I don’t like them.

Thursday Tags – 3 Bookish Things

This weeks tag actually comes from one of my favourite bookstragramers, Paperfury! If you haven’t jumped on the bookstagram train yet I highly recommend you go check her out.

3 Favourite Authors

I agree with Paperfury here, this is a hard question and I am suffering trying to pick authors. I think I need to list authors who I have read more than just a couple of books for, and for the most part of enjoyed their work. It would be better if I liked books or series that revolve around a different story too.

  1. Sarah J. Maas. I have read 10/11 of her currently released books and I have only not liked one of them. She has only written two series thus far but I think she is a pretty safe bet for a favourite author.
  2. Richelle Mead. I am so conflicted putter her on my list but she is the only other author I have read mass amounts by. I loved her VA series, and I for the most part loved her BL spin off, but I have not enjoyed any of her books set outside this world yet. But the two main series take up so many books that I haven’t lost all hope yet.
  3. Victoria Aveyard. Yes she has only release one series and I have yet to do the last book, but as of yet she hasn’t written a dud for me.

3 Weirdest Things Used as a Bookmark

I don’t think I use that weird things as bookmarks because I am scared of hurting my books but we shall see how I go.

  1. Another book.
  2. My phone
  3. A pillow.

3 Series Binged

So many! I like to do all the books at once, so I guess I will just put in ones that are actually a series and not a trilogy or something, and ones that I have read all the books for.

  1. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Yes there are going to be double ups on this list this week. I am currently binge reading this series in preparation for the final book!
  2. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I have binged this on multiple occasions.
  3. Earths Children series by Jean M. Auel. I did take a break for the last book in this series because I had lived in it for so long and there were some really just boring parts in the series, but I am glad I have finished it, even if I may never pick it up again.

And because I can’t help myself I am also going to list three manga series that I have binged.

  1. Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino.
  2. Nana by Ai Yazawa.
  3. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori.

3 Characters You Love

These lists are just about making readers make horrible choices.

  1. Adrian from Vampire Academy. VA is making a strong show in this tag apparently but I am not going to make that stop me from showing my love for Adrian.
  2. Wanda from The Host. I love her development and overall I think she is a great character.
  3. Rhysand from ACOTAR. Do I really need to go into why I love him?

3 Unpopular Bookish Opinions

So this one was actually harder to do than I thought it was going to be. Apparently I don’t feel like my opinions are that unpopular haha.

  1. With the exception of the third book, I actually liked the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. I remember when it came out it was surrounded by lots of hate.
  2. I don’t use libraries. I used to use them a lot and I still go in and have a look around but I never actually get anything. I didn’t like giving back the books I liked as a kid, but I don’t think that would be a problem now as an adult because I want my books to be in better condition than theirs, but now I think the issue for me would be fitting in going to the library and returning them on time into my schedule. I do want to try Overdrive though.
  3. I am not a library. I do not share books, at anytime. If I don’t want it anymore you can have it, but don’t touch the ones on my shelves.

3 Popular Bookish Opinions

Easy peesy lemon squeezey.

  1. No marking of books at any times. No dog ears, no note taking, no highlighting. Keep a journal for that.
  2. Bookstagram is addictive, and just visually displaying books in a pleasing way is just one of the many good things about books.
  3. ACOMAF is one of the best things ever written.

3 Favourite Book Covers

3 Book Goals for the Year

  1. To be more active on active on my bookish social media, including the blog and bookstragram.
  2. Read more. Pull myself out of this horrible slump that holds me.
  3. Write. Finally sit down and map out the book has been in my head for ages, and start it.

 

And thats it for this week. I hope you all enjoyed and if you do this tag let me know! I would love to see peoples answers.

 

Till Next Time. . .

Top Ten Tuesday – On My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish, but has now been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Books on my Fall Spring TBR

You will see a pattern for my list this week. I am planning on doing a huge reread over the next few weeks, and while I feel like its cheating to list books from the same series, I am not planning on reading much else right now.

1. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

2. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.

3. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas.

4. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas.

 

 

 

 

5. Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas. There you go guys. I read Tower of Dawn the other day and I realised that I do not remember enough and need to reread pretty much everything before this final book comes out. I am so damn excited, but I don’t know what I will do once this series ends.

6. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. I am currently reading this book, but as it stands at pages 272/468 I am not enjoying it very much and I am probably going to put it down to do my rereads. I don’t know if I will continue on or not.

7. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I really want to finally do this one as Zusak is coming to Brisbane and I need to get my copes signed and I need to read them first haha.

 

 

 

 

8. Vigilante by Kady Cross. I had started this at one point and put it down. I need to pick it back up.

9. The Continent by Keira Drake. Another one I started but put down for some reason or another.

10. Sleepy Hollow and Other Short Stories by Washington Irving. A really short one to round it all off because there are some hefty books on this list.

Description/Synopsis:

Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders?

When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands. . . .

Book Review – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

This book review is coming after my second time around reading this story, so obviously I enjoyed it. I didn’t review after the first time because I left it too long, and marathoned them all at once and couldn’t really remember each book individually and at the time it was important to me to give each book a full review. Since then though I have decided to be kinder to myself and realise that if I don’t have enough to say about a book by itself or only want to give a series/book a short review I am allowed to do it.

With the series overall there were a few things that I had issues with. I listened to the audiobooks both read throughs, and while it was better the second time around some of the voices really bothered me. Saphira’s voice was the first one that I encountered that just brought me straight out the story. She was female but her voice was just so deep. As we got into the later books this stopped bothering me as we got some voices that were deeper than hers and I could see how hers was a females voice but it still bothered me for a really long time.

The other main thing that really bothered me for both read throughs but again got used to was some of the overall writing style. The series in general is meant for a younger age group and you could really feel the pandering for this. Many of the events or situations in the book are over explained or described for us, and things are quite often repeated. Just because its for a younger age group doesn’t mean you have to dumb down the narrative for that.

Other than the voice acting and some of the writing style I really enjoyed the series though, obviously since I have done it twice in the span of a few months.  It had a really diverse and likeable set of characters that had me laughing with some of their antics, though I was never really too worried about any of the ‘bad guys’ other than wondering how they were going to kill a ‘god’ like Galbatorix. There were some shocking moments that surprised me, but I didn’t have a really strong feeling of tension. The first time around I didn’t see the big twist coming at all, and I really liked the way things panned out for the most part. I would say there are two ends to this story, and there is a lot of filler between the two endings. Some of it I think was needed but I also think it was a bit too long.

SPOILER – I liked how Eragon overcame Galbatorix by just showing him how much pain and suffering he has caused everyone which ultimately made him end his own life. I also really liked and didn’t like that the ending was happy and sad. After all Eragon has been through, I found it so heartbreaking that he has to leave everyone and everything he has ever loved to do the best thing for the dragons. He has to make all the sacrifices. Just as Arya starts to see him the way he has always dreamed, he has to give her up. I liked that Paolini didn’t just give us the easy happy ending, but god damn, I sorta wished he had. Eragon deserved some happiness, and other than Saphira and knowing that the dragons will be safe, he doesn’t get it and it eats me up. He deserved the standard happy ending. – END SPOILER

If for some reason like me you haven’t done this series yet, I would highly recommend it. It surprised me how much I ended up enjoying it. If you have kids that like action with dragons, or if you yourself want some action with dragons, then try this. It is worth all the hype it got, even if it has fallen off the radar as its gotten older.

Brisbane Writers Festival 2018

For those of you who have been reading my blogs for awhile know that I have been to BWF before and have really enjoyed the weekend I spent listening and being immersed in the talks all the authors give. This year was no exception other than the fact that I sadly could only attend two sessions on just one day because life just didn’t line up.

Veronica Roth was the big draw for me this year. If the name for some reason the name doesn’t ring a bell she is the author of the widely popular Divergent series which I loved for the most part, and also the Carve the Mark Duology which I am sadly contemplating DNFing because I am not getting into it. I really wanted to get them all signed though so I gathered up all my books and put them in a bag I hoped and prayed that the rain would stay away long enough for me to get to the venue as it poured down about 5 minutes before I had to go.

I was also praying that there would be a few no shows for the event so that I could even get in to listen to her talk as I had missed out on the free tickets. I was originally planning to go to her evening cosplay event on the  6th after work, but I ended up having to clean for a house inspection on the 7th so I had to miss that and just go with the free event on the 8th. Luckily for me there were a few no shows so I could go in and sit down and listen to the talk, which was amazing and funny, but unluckily for me not so many no shows that there was enough time after for her to sign more than one of everyones books. While I was sad that I couldn’t get everything signed and that I had lugged all of the books with me for no reason, Divergent is the one I care about the most and I got it signed and I am really happy with that. I had a chat with her about how she held a baby echidna and you can see the joy about the discussion on our faces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Veronica had another author on her panel, Cally black. While I had never heard of her before, I left with one of her books signed. I really enjoyed listening to what she had to say and she really helped make the panel so enjoyable I just had to pick up the book and get it signed. I hope I enjoy it as much as enjoyed listening to her talk and the adorable cupcake counterpart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After this panel I stayed for the Alison Goodman panel, and she is the author of Eon and Eona and the Lady Helen trilogy. Eon and Eona have been on my TBR for ages and I was really looking forward to buying them both and getting them signed but of course the book booth wasn’t selling matching copies of the books so I couldn’t have that. I ended up getting the first two Lady Helen books because she talked about the series on the panel and it sounded like something I would be interested in. I am so annoyed though that the last one is not out and it wont be signed like the rest of the them. I have so many signed books, but I don’t think I have a completed set signed. There is always generally one book that doesn’t get signed and I just have to sit here and wait for the author to maybe one day come back. . . I am super happy about what I do get signed though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So after that I decided that was enough day for me, I had spent way more money than I wanted to by this point and the amount of heavy books that I had to walk home with was already a bit much before I left the house, and I had now added three more to the pile. The weather gods were smiling down on me though because 10 minutes after I got home, it started pouring down again, and I managed to go out and back without having to hide from the rain with my books.

Top Ten Tuesday – Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish, but has now been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Books That Are Hidden Gems

Now when I say hidden gems, I mean I think they should be talked about more. If other people talk about them lots or they had lots of publicity, I obviously missed it because they ended up on this list.

1. On the Jellicoe Road By Melina Marchetta. Ding ding ding ding. I bet no one is surprised this is once again at the very top of my list. At this point even I am starting to get annoyed with myself with how often I bring up this book, but really how can I leave it off the list. I feel like I am a lone person just trying to advertise this book by running down the street screaming its name.

2. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. It was around when it first came out but it needs to be something I see everywhere for me to feel like it is getting the attention it deserves.

3. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. This week is apparently just a list of my most favourite books so far. I wonder if they are my favourites because I haven’t seen a whole bunch of people talk about them and I went in with no expectations? Ignore that thought and go read the books anyway haha.

4. Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. Again, I feel like I just need to run screaming its name down the street or keep screaming its name into the void in the hopes that

5. Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway. Thinking about the books I have seen in the bookish universe, I don’t remember seeing this one pop up very much and I loved it so much.

6. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. I know this is a big series by a big name author, but I never really see it mentioned anywhere so it gets a place on my list this week.

7. The Sentinel Mage by Emily Gee. An actual hidden gem haha. I don’t think I have seen this book mentioned anywhere at anytime. I got it from the publishers and that was it. The second book was even better than this one.

 

 

 

 

8. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Its won awards and stuff but I really don’t see it mentioned in any TTT’s or just in the bookish community in general, so I shall mention it.

9. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. As more time passes I feel like this book fades into the background and it needs to be pushed back to the front of the lime light.

10. The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Ok guys hear me out. Yes it got good publicity but I feel like a lot of people snubbed it because it was by Stephanie Meyer and they thought it was going to be like Twilight. Guys this book is much better. I reread it basically yearly.

From Book To Movie – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

 

Title: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Rating: 4 Star

Book Series Reviews

Description/Synopsis:

When her secret love letters to each of her five crushes, Lara Jean finds her quiet school existence turned upside down.

Movie Review – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

This movie gets 2 separate star ratings for me. 5 Star for sticking to the book, and 4 Star for how much I actually enjoyed it. Netflix did a really good job and portraying this beautiful book and I am so excited for them to continue on with the series. For anyone who is interested in continuing on with this review, know that there will be spoilers, as I will be comparing the book to the movie.

They of course did change a few things, some I liked and some that really made it drop the start for me. The beautiful cupcake scene where Lara Jean and Peter bake together was sadly taken from the movie. Also the introduction scene where he helps her after she had a car crash was missing. I can completely see why they left out these scenes, they don’t have a lot of time to work with, but they were important in my eyes in the book and I wanted to see them on screen. ‘

Other than those small things it was amazing. I think they selected the most perfect cast for the movie and they all fit to a T, even with Kitty ages up a few years they stayed true to her character. The actors did a pretty good job, but in the end the movie didn’t leave me with the overall adorableness of the book. I did feel just as bad for Josh in the movie as I did in the books, and I am so glad that they didn’t kiss in the movie. It made me like Josh more, and Margo and her didn’t have as much of a serious fight in the movie because of it.

I also loved the style and set design, the rooms they give these kids in movies! I would have loved a room like that as a kid. One thing that did blow my mind though was just the general size of everyone’s houses. I get that Lara Jean’s dad is a doctor and they would have a nice big house and nice things, but what on earth does everyone else do?! That house the party was at was massive. Is that what the size of the houses are in America in general, or is it a movie thing?

I think my favourite character would have to be Lara Jean’s dad, and he is was made some of my favourite scenes for me. I laughed so hard at his and Chris’ chat in the kitchen.

“I’m not denying you you’re right to put food on your table for your family or anything, I just think its a little odd that a man would want to be a gynaecologist. Like when you were college you thought ‘ah, I would really like to look at vaginas all day'”

“Gonna leave the kitchen now Christine.”

Just beautiful. I also really loved the condom talk, and all the touching moments Lara Jean and her dad had at the restaurant. One other thing I loved that they actually changed a little from the book was the fact that Kitty kept all the letters that Peter wrote Lara Jean, it sort of made up for the fact that she posted the letters out to begin with. I also appreciated that they solved their issues at the end of the movie rather than the start of the next one, and that little sneak peak of John at the end of the movie. He was geekier than I expected but it got me really excited for what was to come

And this is where I am going to leave you guys. If you loved the books, you will like the movie. If you haven’t done the books though but like cute little love stories with families full of sass you will probably enjoy the movie all by itself.

Top Ten Tuesday – Binge Worthy Shows

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish, but has now been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Binge Worthy Shows

I am not so interested in writing my own list this week, as I am in seeing everyone elses lists. I don’t think I have done a list like this before with everyone else, so I am really interested in seeing if the people I know have similar book tastes have similar TV show taste as well! This list is in no particular order, and I am going to try and limit it to things that have just come out or are coming out soon.

1. Disenchantment on Netflix. I have completed all of this already and I enjoyed it. I don’t think it has reached its full potential yet, but I can see great things to come. If you like a darker Simpsons/Futurama then you will like this.

2. The Good Place on Netflix. About a girl who was supposed to go to hell or the bad place but ends up in the good place and chaos ensues. I wont say more, but this is just an awesome show. I can’t wait for the next season.

3. The 100. The show can be really messed but, and the latest season wasn’t the best, but god I love it. Its not one you want to do one episode at a time.

4. Game of Thrones. Yes, I know this didn’t come out this year and I don’t get more till next year, but I feel robbed by this skipped year and I hate it! I can’t wait to see how they end the series.

 

 

 

 

5. Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. This is my households ‘family’ show. Myself, my partner, and our two housemates all get together on its release days and watch it. Safe to say we really enjoy it.

6. Shameless (US). Not to be mistaken with the UK one, which I cannot stand. I may be a season behind on this show (maybe) but when I watch it I fly through it.

7. Criminal Minds. Again I may be behind, but once I have a good amount of the show to watch I just sit and watch it until there is no more. I have watched the whole series more than once.

 

 

 

 

8. Modern Family. A nice more light-hearted show to watch between all the serious. Its one of my favourite break moments when it comes out.

9. South Park. For those who like that kind of thing, it can have some really funny moments.

10. Iron Fist on Netflix. I don’t know if I would binge watch this, but its the only other thing coming out that I like to sit back and watch.

Thursday Tags – Ultimate Book Tag

I googled for a tag to do this week and I came across the Ultimate Book Tag. My googling told me that this particular one was created by Megan on Goodreads and was made for Chapter Chicks YouTube Channel. Its an oldy and a long one but I am very excited to just jump right in.

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

At times I do feel a bit ill but for the most part no I don’t get sick while reading in the car. I survived at least 2 hours in the car/bus going back and forth from home to school and back by reading.

2. Which Author’s writing style is completely unique to you & why?

I think I am going to have to go with Leslye Walton who wrote The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. Just the way she presented the story and the overall idea and presentation of it is what made me decide on her.

3. Harry Potter or Twilight Saga? (3 Points to defend your answer)

So I still, even though I have started the first book, to actually read the Harry Potter series. While I don’t think its a master piece anymore, Twilight did make a really big impact on my reading life and I will always be thankful for it.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so what is in it? (Besides books)

I don’t tend to carry my physical books or my kindle with me anymore since I started getting more into audiobooks. But when I did they would go in my handbag and that generally always has the following in it:

  • Wallet
  • Phone
  • Keys
  • Painkillers
  • A Pen
  • Lipstick
  • Compact Mirror
  • Headphones
  • Shopping Bags
  • And a few other random things that come and go.

5. Do you smell your books?

This is a dumb question because what person who has physical books is going to say no to this one?

 

6. Books with or without illustrations?

This depends on the age range and the book. I think childrens books require illustrations and anything older doesn’t need them. However, there have been some books in the older ranges who have had an illustration that really brought something to the book. If they are going to have them, they have to bring something. They can’t just be in there for the sake of it.

7. What book did you love while reading, but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

The first two series that pop into my head are Twilight and Fallen. While I would say I still like both of the series and might read them again, I can see now that they are not masterful books.

 

 

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please Share

Its not funny, but I used to really struggle to read and spell (something I think related to dyslexia but I was never checked out) and hated every moment of people making me do these things in school. Then one day one of my favourite teachers brought in a program that for every certain amount of pages you read from a book, you got a book. This changed everything for me. I devoured books from this point on.

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling at 105 pages.

 

 

 

10. Thickest book on your shelf?

The Red Queen by Isobelle Carmody at 1108. Over a thousand more pages than my smallest.

 

 

 

 

11. Do you write as well as you read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

Yes. But I don’t say this with much confidence. I have dabbled and written a few things, but I am just organising myself to write something for the first time outside of school and I am very excited and hesitant about starting it.

12. When did you get into reading?

I touched on this a little in question 8. I would have been in year 6 I think when this all started to happen.

13. What is your favourite classic book?

Easily Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

 

 

 

14. In school was you best subject Language Arts/English?

Again see question 8. In my early school years it was easily one of my worst subjects. After my love of reading started though it became one of my best subjects next to art.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated… What would you do?

I would keep it for awhile, then once I felt like it was appropriate to get rid of it, I would pass it onto someone else who wants it or donate it.

 

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

Since I haven’t read Harry Potter I can’t say about it, and I have never really found anything to be like the Hunger Games. I don’t like to compare books in this way unless its just unavoidable though.

17. What is a bad habit you always do when blogging?

I procrastinate the entire time I am working on it. I will physically write down a review or idea in a book, but when it comes to actually getting it onto the computer it seems to take me forever. For example yesterday I wrote five book reviews down over the span of the day, but today I have only managed to put together three posts including this one and as of writing this question its already 7:12pm. I have been doing it pretty much the whole day.

18. What is your favorite word?

Oh god… why…. Ummm… dear lord…. Bubbles?

19. Are you a nerd or a geek?

Depends on what subject matter! I think overall I would be more geeky though as I am just a fan of most things and don’t actually do the things.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

If you had of asked me a few years ago the answer would have been Vampires 100%. The poor things have been just stripped and pulled apart in literature now though so I would have to go with Fairies. Not the happy go lucky I am always nice Fairies though. I believe Faeries can be down right nasty, ugly things.

 

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Shapeshifters. I have read very few Angel books I love.

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Probably Werewolves but I don’t care much either way. I don’t tend to read much paranormal but I love supernatural things.

23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Vampires 100% hahaha. Zombies are the most boring subject matter to walk the face of the Earth. They have tried to make them more threatening by making it so they move fast now but they still hold no interest for me.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

Forbidden love. That implies that they have things to overcome before they can be together if they actually get to be. I have seen so many bad love triangles.

25. Full on romance or action-packed with love scenes mixed in?

Depends on what I am more in the mood for. Some of my favourite books are ones where the love is just a side note to the story and enhances the main point, rather than it being the main point itself. I do however, really love a good romance novel.

 

And now we have come to the end! If you do this tag let me know so I can have a look at your answers! I hope you enjoyed it as much as me, this was a really interesting tag to do.

 

Till Next Time. . .
