*Click on the separate book covers to go to their Goodreads page*

  1. The After-Room (The Apothecary #3) by Maile Meloy-Tween

The After-Room (The Apothecary, #3)

I love this book series! The first two books were amazing and I’m looking forward to this one. There won’t be a review since it’s a Tween book.


2.Counting Thyme by Melanie Conklin-Tween

Counting Thyme

This book sounded amazing! It’s based around a girl and her family.They have to move so her brother can try out a new cancer drug trial. I bet it’ll be great. There won’t be a review due to the genre.


3. Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella-Young Adult/Teen

Finding Audrey

I’m finally reading this book!! It’s been out since last June and I’m just now reading it. I hope I’ll enjoy it. The reviews on Goodreads are an average of 3.8/5 stars so it’s probably not the best. You’ll see what I think in the review 🙂


4.More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Not

This is another book that’s been out for a bit. Since June of last year as well. This one has better review average but a tougher topic. I’m eager to finally read it! I will let you know what I think in my review.


That’s a wrap! Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Are any of  these books now on your TBR? Let me know all of this in the comments below if you wish.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Library Book Hauls!!

Top Ten Tuesday: Facts About Me!

Hey everyone! Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for another great Top Ten Tuesday’s. This meme is hosted by the wonderful and talented people @ The Broke and the Bookish! You definitely need to check them out if you haven’t already. This week’s topic is a bit different. It’s:

Ten Facts About Me (bookish or just general about you facts or ten facts about you as a blogger…whatever you want)

I think I’m going to do Ten General Facts About Me. It will float around topics depending on what I can think of. Here we go!!


Ten Facts About Me:

  1. I have two cats!

Their names are Trouble and Ali and they are sisters. They’re both tabby cats.

Ali is on the left and Trouble is on the right


2. I am obsessed with ice cream

I am one of those people who loves ice cream a little too much. I eat it no matter how cold it is. Call me crazy but that’s how I’ve always been.


3. I started reading chapter books in 1st grade

While others were struggling with the picture books, I was already reading my first chapter book. I remember it was a Junie B Jones book. Since then, I’ve loved reading.


4. My TV show obsessions are:

Right now I’m loving the show Bones. It’s a mystery/forensics/crime solving type of show. I love the characters and how they always get themselves involved in one crime or another. I also love the reality show Big Brother. It’s a show where 16 people live in a house away from the outside world. They compete in competitions and try to work towards half a million dollars. Big Brother is full of tons of drama. These are my main two obsessions right now.


5. I’ve never been out of the country 

A dream of mine is to get out of the country and explore. I’d love to at least go to London and Ireland. For now, I’m just staying in the United States


6.  I’m really particular about what books I read

As I talked about in one of my Friendly Discussion Friday posts, I am very particular about what I read. I look at the cover, book length and writing style. These books go through a strict survey before they are proven worthy


7. I don’t have an actual TBR pile

Unlike most book bloggers, I don’t have an actual TBR. I just pick books up at the library when they seem interesting.


8. I don’t plan out my blog posts.

I don’t really plan my posts out at all. I only do if it’s a Get In The Know (Wrap up) or a Q&A. Basically anything super important. Otherwise, I just sit down and start typing whatever comes to mind.


9. I’ve met one author.

The only author I’ve met was Erin Hunter, the author of the Warriors, Seekers and Survivors series. Waiting in line for over an hour was totally worth it. That was when I learned that Erin Hunter is not one but six different people under one name. The one I met was named Gillian Phillips.

10. I also love writing

This blog seems to be only about reading but I love writing too. I want to be an author or journalist and love doing writing assignments at school. Writing comes easy to me.
 

That’s a wrap! Do you relate to any of these facts? Let me know!

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

My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag

Hey guys! It’s finally the weekend. For most, that means it’s time to have fun and relax. I’ve decided to do another tag. This time I am doing the My Intimidating TBR Pile Tag. @My Tiny Obsessions did this tag back in May. I was unofficially tagged and am excited to do the tag. Without further ado, here we go!

THE NEW YOU


1) What Book Have You Been Unable To Finish?

Don’t hate me for this but Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I started the book and after a chapter or two, I put it down. I don’t know if I’ll ever start it again. It’s really not my type of book.


2) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You Just Haven’t Had Time?

So many books! Too many to count.


3) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is a Sequel?

I hope I actually understand this question XD I’m going to say I FunnyTV by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein . I have yet to read the third book so I can’t read this one yet.


4) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is Brand New?

Nothing that’s been released. I’m looking forward to Nicola Yoon’s new book The Sun Is Also a Star. It’s going to be released November 1st, 2o16.


5) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You Read A Book By The Same Author and Didn’t Enjoy It?

Nothing comes to mind.


6) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because You’re Just Not In The Mood For It?

That would have to be Four by Veronica Roth. I got the book for Christmas (I think) and have yet to read it. I’m not in the mood and am not sure if it will be good.


7) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Is Humungous.

This book probably isn’t very long and is not actually on my shelf. It’s The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This has been on my TBR since… now probably. It’s 584 pages, so longer than most books I’ve read.


8) What Book Have You Yet To Read Because It Was a Cover Buy That Turned Out To Have Bad Reviews?

I don’t actually own this book so it wasn’t a cover buy. The book is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I’ve read the first two books in the Divergent series but stopped before this one. It’s a bit intimidating because I haven’t heard good things about it.


9) What Is The Most Intimidating Book In Your TBR Pile?

I actually don’t have a TBR pile right now. I need to run to the library to restock it. I don’t really have long term piles. I just have ones that last a week or so.


I have no idea how far this tag has gotten. Because of that, I am going to tag Everyone who wants to participate!


That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this tag.  It was really fun to do 🙂 Feel free to leave any future tag suggestions!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more tags!!
