Library Book Haul (#8)

Hey everyone! The Top Ten Tuesday topic didn’t spur any ideas so I decided to do a library book haul instead. I haven’t done a library book haul in a long time so this should be fun! This haul consists of two young adult books and three tween books.

*All These Book Covers Are Linked To Goodreads*

1. Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

Highly Illogical Behavior

This book has been floating around for a bit. I’m finally going to read it and see if I enjoy it. It’s a book about a boy who is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left his house in three years. A girl named Lisa wants to try to change that. It reminds me of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon a bit. I’ll definitely do a review.


2. Chasing Secrets by Gennifer Choldenko

Chasing Secrets

A tween book set in 1900’s San Francisco. It revolves around a girl named Lizzie and her adventures. I have enjoyed historic fiction before so I wanted to give this a shot. It’s a tween book so no review.


3.  The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

The Thing About Jellyfish

A tween book about a girl named Suzie. After her friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzie is sure it was caused by a jellyfish sting. She goes to extreme lengths to prove her theory. There will be no review.


4. Poached by Stuart Gibbs

Poached (FunJungle #2)

A tween book about a boy named Teddy who’s trying to solve the mystery of the Koala captors. No review will be done.


5. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (Book #1) by Jenny Han

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

A young adult book about a girl named Lara. Instead of confessing her feelings to her crushes, she writes them letters. Her secret letters to her crushes are sealed as if to be sent off. When the box of letters is somehow mailed, she’s confronted by ex-crushes. A review will be done.


That’s a wrap! Have you read any of these books? Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more library book hauls!

  1. Stella by Starlight by Sharon M. Draper

A book written by two wonderful authors. It centers around two boys both named Will Grayson. I have enjoyed at least one book by both John Green and David Levithan. That’s why I believe I will enjoy this book. See if I do in my review 🙂

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!

Pokémon Go Book Tag!!

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday and it’s time for a rare double post day. Today I am doing a book tag. More specifically the Pokémon Go Book Tag. I saw this on My Tiny Obsessions’ blog last month and knew I had to do it. Go check out her amazing blog for all things bookish, movie, TV shows, traveling and so much more!  For the record, I do not play Pokémon Go and don’t plan to. I can understand why it’s fun and so hyped but it’s just not my thing. This tag was created by Aentee @ Read At Midnight.

Pokemon-Go-Book-Tag

I’m going to use Aentee’s graphics because they’re so amazing!

pokemon-tag-01starters

This book definitely started my love for reading. It was my first chapter book and after that, I wanted to read as much as Junie B Jones as possible. After that all I wanted to do was read.

pokemon-tag02pikachuI haven’t read any iconic classics. I’m sure I’ll read some in High School though!


pokemon-tag-03-zubat

Hmm.. I’m going to say Allegiant by Veronica Roth. The hype died down a long time ago. I have heard nothing but bad about the book so I refuse to read it. It’s not everywhere now but it was.


Pokemon-Tag-04-Ditto

I’m going to say Half Brother by Kenneth Oppal. It’s sooo similar to another book I’ve read but I still loved it.


Pokemon-Tag-05-Snorlax
Nothing comes to mind. Even if a book is super long, I’d still read it.

Pokemon-Tag06-Gengar

The last book that kept me up was I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. It kept me up because of the suspense, mystery and adventure. I just couldn’t bring myself to put it down.

Pokemon-Tag07-NidokingQueen

This is pretty tough. I’m going to say Cath and Levi from Fangirl. They’re already together but they are still the perfect OTP1`

 Pokemon-Tag08-RapidashI’m going to say The Hunger Games series. Something is always happening and there’s plot twists popping up everywhere!

Pokemon-Tag09-EeveeI’m going to say The Harry Potter series. I’m excited to see how the Cursed Child book is. But just like the rest of the series, I’m sure I’ll read it way later than everyone else.


Pokemon-Tag14-Magikarp

The Harry Potter series would be perfect for this. Since I just did that answer… The Book Thief. I was hesitant to read it but am so glad I did.

Pokemon-Tag12-LegendaryNothing comes to mind. I don’t really have an series’ that I want to read.


Pokemon-Tag15Mew-MewTwoThe Fangirl collectors edition, The Harry Potter book series collectors editions and the Eleanor and Park collectors edition just to name a few.


Pokemon-Tag10-EggI don’t have any debut novels. Just more from Becky Albertalli, Nicola Yoon and Bill Kongisberg!


Pokemon-Tag11-Lure-ModuleNone! I don’t do any of that stuff.


Pokemon-Tag13-Server-Down

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon-Release Date: November 1st,2016
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli-Release Date: April 2017
Honestly Ben by Bill Konigsberg-Release Date: Fall 2016
That’s all for now!

I nominate: EVERYONE who wants to participate! This is a great tag for Pokémon Go fans and non Pokémon Go fans alike. What’s your favorite Pokémon? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more great book tags!

Library Book Haul (#6)

Hey everyone! I quickly want to apologize for not posting yesterday and posting late today. I’ll try to do better! Today I am doing a Library Book Haul. This haul will consist of 4 books: 2 Young Adult and 2 Tween. I got these books at the library on Saturday Let’s get started!


 FullSizeRender (4)

*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!!

As Brave As You

This was a great book! I’m glad I decided to read it.

Anne of Windy Poplars (Anne of Green Gables, #4)

This was another great book in the Anne of Green Gables series. It was intriguing and pulled me in from the beginning.

This was a quick read. It took me around a day and was very enjoyable. Though it’s more of a  graphic novel, it’s a page turner.



 Currently Reading:

Sweet Home Alaska

This is a great story! There is lots of obstacles, success and worry for the characters to deal with. It’s set in the 1930s so it’s definitely different. I love it so far!


Going To Read:

Emily of New Moon (Emily, #1)Anne's House of Dreams (Anne of Green Gables, #5)

I Am the Messenger
