John Green has a special place in my heart, his books are some of the first ones I read that got me to reading Young Adult. So of course, I’m highly anticipating his new book Turtles All the Way Down which comes out in October. Yup, we’ll have to wait until October to read it!! But no worries because you can join me and other book lovers with the #TurtlesAlltheWayCountDown 🐢 Read-along or Reread-along! (if you already read the books)
Hey there! ✨
YAAAAAS, this is my first and hopefully not the last book haul post! I don’t usually “haul” books because I don’t have the money to do that (I buy an average of 2-3 books a month) but now—I’m really not sure how but—I collected 13 books!
Heyheyhey there! ✨
Before the year ends I just wanted to squeeze in one more post, so here it is! Truly, 2016 was such a wonderful reading year for me—I read a lot of books, finished my Goodreads Reading Challenge (71/60 books read) and added a lot to my Favorite’s shelf!
And of course I wanted to share to all of you my top 16-ish books for 2016 as well as my reading + blogging goals for 2017.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas/Holiday, did you get all the books you wished for?
There’s still a few days left in 2016, and I wanted to take this time to spread some love and good vibes! That’s why I’m so glad that Laura @ Bibliofagista tagged me to do this tag, thank you so much lovely. Don’t forget to also check out her post.
So without further ado, let’s get some celebrating:
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
Our history is too compressed. We’re trying to fit a lifetime into a day.
I’m that cynical hopeless romantic who doesn’t believe in insta-love. And believe me this book screams INSTA-LOVE but guess what, I didn’t mind! (Well, I did at first…you know just a little) This book is so much more than the romance, though it’s the central focus of the plot, it’s also about life, chances, and how everything connects—fate.
Heyyy there bookish people!
So how are you today? What are you currently reading? Hope you all are doing wonderful! As you may have read from the title, this post is all about my dream book conference (which may but probably will not come true) with my favorite authors! Admit it, you probably have daydreamed about your favorite authors gathering together on your dream conference once or twice now. Well, I always do and now I’m going to share one of my dream panel of authors.
Hey there lovely blogger!
I’m here with a tag because tags are so fun to do, and this tag is like one of the most fun tags that I’ve ever seen so shout out to the person who created this tag! Keep being awesome. (I’m so bad at intros, sorry for being slightly weird.)
Anyways, I completely mistaken this tag for the This or That tag, but this tag is really different from that tag except for their names which are a tiny bit alike. (This sentence gave me an headache.)
I was tagged by the lovely Marta @ The Book Mermaid, you should all definitely head-over to her blog and check her out.
SO ENOUGH WITH THIS CONFUSING INTRO AND LET’S GO DO THIS TAG!
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Sixteen-year-old Solomon is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left the house in three years, which is fine by him.
Ambitious Lisa desperately wants to get into the second-best psychology program for college (she’s being realistic). But is ambition alone enough to get her in?
Determined to “fix” Sol, Lisa steps into his world, along with her charming boyfriend, Clark, and soon the three form an unexpected bond. But, as Lisa learns more about Sol and he and Clark grow closer and closer, the walls they’ve built around themselves start to collapse and their friendships threaten to do the same.
“We’re just floating in space trying to figure out what it means to be human.”
I honestly thought that this would be another one of those “love-can-fix-everything-even-mental-illness” stories where the main character would be magically healed because of the love of the significant other, but thankfully this book isn’t anything like that.
First of all, I just want to say that I want to say Sorry for not being active on my blog for the last couple weeks, I’m still adjusting with school and I’ve always sucked at managing my time and being organized. I admit that I ignored my blog, especially last week and now I feel bad about it. I feel like a bad parent for it. And OMG guys, I MISSED YOU ALL SO MUCH. I missed interacting with all of you and writing up blog posts and comments, hope I could catch up on everything!
Anyway, enough of that because this post is really all about the books that I read last summer, it’s like a summer wrap-up. And because I know most of you are still on your summer vacation, I’ll be recommending some Summer Reads for all of you.
Greetings bookish people!
Sadly, I’ve been a little busy these past few days and I’ll probably be busy for the rest of the week. But no worries, I’ve spent this day working on a few posts and stacking up my drafts.
Anyways, due to my
busy schedule laziness, I really do need to work on my tags and awards. So don’t worry if I haven’t done all those posts where you awesome people tagged me, I’m working on them.. it might take a while but I WILL DO THEM AND CONQUER ALL THOSE TAGS!!
I was tagged by Calliope the Book Goddess to do the Most Likely To… Book Tag. Thank you so much for tagging me, and you all should go give her blog a visit and follow!
So I tried to trace back where this tag originated, and I think it was first posted by Becca @ Becca and Books. Continue reading
