Top Ten Books Recently Added To My To Be Read List

I think the simplest way to do this list is just to jump on over to goodreads and put my last ten additions on my list from there, it in no means these are the ones I want to read the most. Also, if you want a chance to win two books scroll down to the bottom of this post. Here goes:

1. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. I am so eager to continue reading this book. Sent to me by the publishers

2. Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Not the kind of book I would normally read but I was very kindly sent it by the publishers and it has been getting very good reviews around the booklands so I am excited to give it a go.

3. Kissing in American by Margo Rabb. Sent to me by the publishers.

October Wrap Up + November TBR

wrapup

Hey there guys! I am going to be introducing just short and simple wrap ups to my blog to keep you guys up to date on what happened to me during the month, as well as to keep me up to date. Sometimes I swear I have done so much more that I have. This month is no exception. The books I read this month are:

Creed final cover Last Changeling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, that’s right. Two. Just two. I really thought I had read at least three but apparently not! I was supposed to have reviews up for these books by now because I received them both for review from the publisher, but I got busy and didn’t get a chance. I didn’t really like either of these two books so the reviews fell to the not-really-important section of my brain. Expect the reviews to pop up in the next week or so.

Now for the TBR, I think this is going to change depending on what I get done in the AYearAThon read-a-thon over the next week, so if you want to see that TBR lost check it out here. Some other books I want to get read this month are:

I really hope to have a good reading month since I haven’t had a great one lately.

Top Ten Tuesday – Unique Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Unique Books I Have Read

shippingnews1. The first book that comes to mind would have to be The Shipping News by Annie Proulx. The way this book was written was really different to most books I have read. It took me a bit to get into it but once I did I loved the style.

 

 

71aIaqzVp9L._SL1246_2. The next one I think I’m going to put up is A House Without Mirrors by Marten Sanden. Though the idea of entering another world through cupboards was done in The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, in this story we go into a wardrobe filled with mirrors and end up in another world that is a mirror image to the one you came from, but inside you discover things about yourself and those around you. So interesting for a childrens book.

cover_allegiant3. Im giving this place to Allegiant by Veronica Roth. Those who haven’t read it yet move on to the next one! Spoiler alter! For having the courage and the balls to kill off the main character.

 

 

Poision Princess4. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole. The idea of teenages embodying the major arcana cards, having their own special powers because of it, and having to fight each other until only one is left standing is an awesome idea and very unique!

 

 

cvr9781591169154_9781591169154_hr5. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori. I don’t know if this is just a cultural difference or something, but I personally find the plot of this series unique. What kind of girl goes into a school then just pretends to be a guy and joins a club of guys which have dates with girls at school, for which the girls pay? Further more, what kind of school lets that kind of thing happen?

 

northernlights6. I kind of feel like I am breaking the rules by putting this book/series in since I haven’t read it yet, but I have seen the movie and know the general gist of it I am going to put it in anyway. This place goes to The Northern Lights by Philip Pullan. I think peoples souls being outside their body and living in the form of an animal is a really interesting idea and concept. I really need to hurry up and pick up the books.

 

ha626017. Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino. Though vampires are not something new I thought the idea of having different levels of vampires was a very interesting idea. The higher up you go, the more powerful and magical the vampires are.

 

 

9780316068048_custom-s6-c108. The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I don’t know if its just me or not since I don’t really read science fiction all that much, but I thought the idea of an alien concious and a human concious living in the same body was very interesting and unique.

 

 

newesfromthedead9. Newes From The Dead by Mary Hooper. I thought reading the before and after chop up and put together of a story about a girl who survived being hanged was really interesting.

 

 

978174253520310. Though it may not be for everyone, but for me, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green was unique. I hadn’t read a story where virtually every character was sick and going to die.

 

 

So there is my list. As always if you would like a copy of the book just click on the cover and it shall take you to a copy of the book.

The Book Chain Exchange Idea

ImageI have been thinking about this for awhile now, and the more I think about it the more I really want it to happen.

I would like to start up a book chain exchange.

How it would work would be someone, myself for example, would post a blog stating they are looking to find a another person out there in the world to exchange books with, and we would post each other a book we have already read. The title and genre of this book can be left unknown if the giver so desires. But before we post the books we shall write on the inside of the front cover “This Book Was Read By” and we would write our own names and state and country underneath to start a column. For example I would write Jazmin Pitt-Gill VIC AU. Then once we have read the book we shall write our details down under the other persons, then find another person to exchange books with and post the book onto another person! And so the cycle continues.

To keep track of how far your original book has travelled around the world and how many people have added their names to the list, each person who is putting the book up for exchange will just repost the original blog to do so. This was the original giver can see how many times it has been exchanged :) Or you can post a picture of the names in your own blog, and share the link with the original person.

You may start more than one chain.

I dont know how well this idea will work, but I think it would be awesome to watch the list grow, and to see how many names may be already be on a book you receive. If anyone out there is interested in starting this up with me, give me a shout!
