Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means it’s my first day of High School! It also means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. This wonderful meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Go check them out for amazing bookish posts and reviews 🙂 This week’s topic is:

In honor of Fall Tv, do a tv-themed topic! Top ten favorite tv shows of all time, ten new shows coming out this Fall that are on my radar, tv shows I wish never got cancelled, tv shows I would recommend to book characters, books I wish would be tv shows, ten favorite shows from the late 90’s or early 2000’s, ten tv shows for every fantasy lover, etc.

I have decided to do  5 new shows on my radar and 5 of my favorites.


5 New Shows On My Radar:

  1. This is Us- Starts September 20th

A show about three separate stories that may or may not intertwine. The first about a couple expecting triplets. The second is about an obese women who is struggling to lose weight. And finally, a guy who finds his father. This show looks so heartwarming and amazing.


2. Kevin Can Wait- Starts September 19th

3. Bull-Starts September 20th

Image result for bull tv show

A show about inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw.  It’s more of a law/court centered show. It looks so interesting.

4. Timeless-Starts October 3rd

A dramatic time traveling TV show. Time is changed and messed with. These people must save history. It looks absolutely amazing!

5. Man With A Plan- Starts October 24th

Book Review| Finding Audrey

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday and I am finally reviewing Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. I finished this a while ago but am just now doing a review. Anyway, let’s get started!


Title: Finding Audrey

Image result for finding audrey

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Image result for sophie kinsella

Genre: Contemporary; Young Adult

# of pages: 304

My Rating: 4.5/5  stars

Goodreads Rating: 3.8/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4/5 stars

Amazon Summary:

An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.


My Thoughts:

I generally loved Finding Audrey. Audrey is such a great character. She has realistic real life problems.  She struggles so much and it can be relatable for those with  an anxiety disorder and/or depression.All the characters are so detailed that I feel like I know them. Linus, her brother’s friend is a brilliant character. He really believes in Audrey. Even when she has a total panic attack, he isn’t scared away. This book is full of life changing moments for both Audrey and her family. The only part that was the least bit unlikeable was the ending. It seemed too “happily ever after” for me. Overall, It’s such a touching book and definitely worth the read. There’s even a bit of suspense 🙂


That’s a wrap! What are your thoughts on Finding Audrey? Let me know! *NO SPOILERS PLEASE)

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!

Book Traveling Thursday (#31)|School

Hey everyone!! It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This weekly meme is hosted by Càtia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Go check them out for fantastic bookish posts! To find out more meme information, future themes and more, head to the Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is:

It’s back to school time! Choose a book set on high school or college.

Of course, all of the topics for memes lately are school related. Since I’m going into High School, this will be perfect. This week, I have decided to do Will Grayson, Will Grayson  by John Green and David Levithan. I haven’t read this book yet but it’s on my book shelf.


Original Cover/Cover From My Country:

Will Grayson, Will Grayson


Favorite Cover(s):

Will & Will: Um nome, um destinoPortuguese

Den Andre Will GraysonSwedish

Will et WillFrench

23350212Portuguese

My favorite out of these is the first Portuguese cover. It’s simple yet it still stands out to me.


Least Favorite(s):

Will ti presento WillItalian

This was the only one I found that I really didn’t like. It has random people and the background isn’t my favorite.


That’s a wrap! This book has a lot of covers that have different languages but the same graphic.  What are your favorite and least favorite covers?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Book Traveling Thursday!

Top Ten Tuesday| Books I Still Haven’t Read

 

Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesdays. This wonderful meme is hosted by the people @ The Broke and the Bookish. Go check them out for all things bookish! This week’s topic may be tough for me. It is:

Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet

I most likely won’t make it to ten books.


Ten Books I Still Haven’t Read:

  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

This will most likely be off my list soon since I am starting High School in a couple of weeks.


2.The Giver by Lois Lowry

I feel like this is a book I should read.  I don’t know when I will.

3. An Abundance of Kathrines by John Green

Since I’ve enjoyed both of the John Green books I’ve read so far, I want to read another one!

4. The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
I still haven’t read the Twilight books. I’m not 100% sure if I ever will be they are on my TBR never less.

5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
I have read the first and second books in the series. I hesitate to read this one though.

6. Four by Veronica Roth

This is literally on my bookshelf. It’s more of a prequel or so I’ve heard.

7.I Funny TV by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

 

I have loved the I Funny series so far and can’t wait to read this one!


8. 52 Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths

I have always loved this series. It’s more of a children’s graphic novel but still amazing. Each book, the treehouse has more attractions and floors.


 9. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

 This has been on my Goodreads TBR for sometime. I hope to eventually read it.


10. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell

I need to read more classics and I feel like this would be perfect!


I guess I have more reading to do than I thought! What are some books you still need to read? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!
