9 series I NEED to finish/get up to date with in 2019

With all the awesome new releases coming out I have been neglecting the series I have already started and enjoyed. So here is a list of the series I want to finish or at least get to the most recent released if the full series isn’t out yet.

Arc of a Scythe by Neal Shusterman

I read Scythe last year & enjoyed it. I put off reading Thunderhead as we had not received a release date for book 3, The Toll, and I didn’t want to read Scythe & Thunderhead back to back and then have to wait however long for The Toll. We now have a date though! The Toll is set to release in September 2019 so I will be able to finish the series in 2019 if the book does come out this year.

Jackaby by William Ritter

I’ve read Jackaby and absolutely loved it! I plan to read Beastly Bones in the upcoming Fantasy AdventureAThon but I really want to get to the rest of the series! I ordered the last 2 books off Booktopia and one has shipped but the other is just sitting there with no explanation! If they don’t ship it soon I’ll cancel and buy elsewhere as I can’t wait to get to the rest of the series! Booktopia has been hopeless lately. I used to swear by them but I’ve had so much trouble in recent months with them…

Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

So I have read the original series which includes Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City & Library of Souls and I loved the how trilogy! However I have been super sceptical about this new trilogy that is coming out as part of the series. I’m worried I’m not going to like it as much as the original trilogy and that’s why I haven’t continued. But I need to just do it as it has received really good feedback. There will also be 2 other books in this series, however we don’t have a release date yet or really any information about them.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I’ve read the first 2 books, Three Dark Crowns & One Dark Throne and enjoyed them. They weren’t absolute favourites, but enjoyable. I still haven’t gotten to Two Dark Reigns and book 4, Five Dark Fates is set to release in September 2019, so hopefully I will be able to finish the full series by the end of the year!

The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

I read The Last Magician last year and really enjoyed it! However because I listened to it on audiobook I didn’t retain the information as well as I would have if I had read it physically. So I want to reread The Last Magician physically before moving onto The Devil’s Thief. Also there is a book 3 but we don’t have a release date.

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

This is basically the exact same situation as The Last Magician. I listened to the audiobook for Mask of Shadows last year. Loved it but can’t remember as much as I would like so I want to reread before starting Ruin of Stars. This is only a duology though.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I read Renegades when I was on holiday last year and enjoyed it alot. I received Archenemies from the publisher at the end of last year but when I received it I was in a huge slump. So I never got around to picking it up. Also Book 3 Supernova is set to release November 2019.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I read The Bone Season & The Mime Order in I think 2017 and really enjoyed them! I have had the Song Rising sitting on my TBR for WAY too long! I want to reread book 1 & 2 before picking up The Song Rising though as it has just been soo long! Also this is meant to be a 7 book series and we don’t have a release date for book 4 yet!

Magisterium by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare

I’ve listened to the first 3 books of this series a fair while ago and really enjoyed them! Now that book 4 and 5 is out I want to relisten to the audiobooks and finish the series! The audiobooks are really good, so I want to listen to them again rather than physically reading it.

My Bookish Goals

So if you didn’t know, I fell into a reading/blogging/bookstagramming (and basically everything else bookish related) slump at the end of last year. I am finally out of it, I think, but I’m now out of sync with everything. So I wanted to make a few goals for myself to try and get the ball rolling.

1. Blog Posts

So my first goal has 2 parts. The first is related to review posts & the other is related to other posts.
So for the review posts, my goal is that when I finish a book I have to write the review within 4 days. That’s not much time, but when I leave it longer I end up forgetting things and the reviews aren’t as in depth as I would like.
For all other posts, my goal is to post at least once a week and that doesn’t include reviews.

2. Instagram

So my goal for my Bookstagram account it to post every second day. My other goal for this was to choose one day a week that I will take photos on for the coming week. So I have chosen Tuesday for that. So every Tuesday I will set up and take 3 – 4 photos.
Next is my goal for my personal account, which is to simply try and post once a week as I’m so inactive on that account.
Next, my goal for my pets related account is to post twice a week!

3. Book Buying Ban

Yes, I am going on a book buying ban for at least 2 months!!! This will not be a complete ban as I will still need to buy the books that we choose for discussion in the Facebook group I run, The YA Book Nerds. I’m the one that writes the discussion questions, so I kinda need to read the books. But that will be the only books I buy! I am also cancelling all my subscriptions except Scribd. Which is fine as it’s the cheapest and you get the most for your money! I have already put in a few pre-orders, so I will still have some new books coming in to keep me occupied.

4. Youtube

So if you follow my channel you may have seen my update in regard to my internet situation. Well it hasn’t improved so I won’t be putting this goal into action just yet but once I have all my internet sorted I will.
So my goals for Youtube are, for one, to start a new channel. Which I have done but yet to post on yet due to internet.
My next goal is to have an actual posting schedule. My plan at the moment is to post a Sims 4 video on my new channel every Sunday, a bookish video on Dusk Angel Reads every Thursday & a random video on the new channel every Tuesday.

5. Update Blog

My last goal is that I want to update the look of my blog in the near feature. Just to change it up and give it a new look. This takes a fair bit of work though, so I have been putting it off.

Well I think that is all my goals for now! Hopefully I will be successful in these goals and I might do an update in a couple months!

Books I DNFd in 2018

So it is nearly the end of 2018! So I’m going to be doing a series here & on my youtube channel discussing the best books I read in 2018, the books I DNFd in 2018, the worst books I read in 2018 & what I am anticipating in 2019! There may be more to this series but that is my current plan!

This year I really got into DNFing books more. I have accepted the fact that not all books are for me and there is no point wasting my time with something I don’t enjoy.

I am going to split this into 3 sections:
1. Books I DNFd because it just wasn’t for me
2. Books I DNFd but will try again in a different format
3. Books I DNFd because I strongly disliked them or something about them

So lets get into it!

Books I DNFd because it just wasn’t for me

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

This book… Okay, so don’t get me wrong. I really enjoyed book 1. I of course had problems with it, mainly the Insta Love based romance. But I was able to ignore that and focus on the plot and the really unique world. HOWEVER, this book jumps straight in heavy on the romance based side of things and I just couldn’t do it!


The Dragonet Prophecy by Tui. T Sutherland

So this one is a middle grade and don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a lot of middle grades but some, like this one is simply too young feeling for me. I felt like I was reading a kids book and I just couldn’t get into it.

Books I DNFd but will try again in a different format

The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

This one is the 4th book in The Darkest Minds series. I was a little hesitant with this one as it’s always iffy when an author releases another book in a series YEARS after what we all thought was the finale’s publication. In this case the 3rd book in the series, In the Afterlight, was a 2014 release and The Darkest Legacy releases in 2018.
Honestly I didn’t get far enough into this book to really tell if it was good or bad. The reason I DNFd was I think the format. I had recently reread the original trilogy via audiobook and decided to continue on that path for this book too. I preferred the audiobooks for the other books as for some reason The Darkest Minds books always taken me twice as long to read as any other book. So the audiobooks were great but for The Darkest Legacy I just couldn’t get into it. I may try again with the physical book at some point but it more than likely won’t be soon as it just isn’t a top priority. The trilogy feels finished for me and this 4th book just feels like an unnecessary add on.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Okay, so this wasn’t really a DNF but I did start it and not finish, so it’s making the list.
Basically I bought this book because it was so hyped leading up to the release. I added this book to a ReadAThon TBR and read the 1st chapter which was the epilogue. I wasn’t really intrigued so I had a look at some reviews. I started seeing a lot of reviews that claimed it was slow and boring. At the time I was in a reading slump and trying to get out and something that a lot of people were saying was slow was not something I wanted to put myself through when trying to get out of the slump. So I put it down. I have heard good things about the audiobook, so I will give it a go at some point.

Books I DNFd because I strongly disliked them of something about them

Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce

I just could not do it! I DNFd this book at 52%. I was half way through the book and basically NOTHING interesting had happened. We were just following this kid going to school. I’m all for a magical school but it starts getting boring after a while. I also remember this book having basically no world building. I am aware that this is set in the same world as one of her other series that was published ages ago but that doesn’t mean that there should be no world building! If it was a sequel I would get the lack of explanation but not with a companion that is set before the events of the original series. Just give me something!
You can find my full DNF Review HERE!

The Seer’s Curse by J.J. Faulks

Okay, so this book overall was a bit dull and boring but my main issue with it was how similar it was to other books I had already read. Basically we follow this girl that from the time that she is born everything bad that happens in that town she is blamed for. Sound familiar? That is because that is how The Trials of Morrigan Crow starts, which is a book I read and didn’t really care for.

A Shot in the Dark by Lynne Truss

This one I was just confused. This is a Mystery book that I received from NetGalley and I didn’t even review it because I only read about 20% and the whole time I was confused so didn’t feel like I had enough thoughts to actually review it. Basically you are thrown straight in and there a heap of names being thrown around, places being introduced and it all hit just so quickly that you don’t even have time to process anything. So yes, I was confused and gave up very early.


The Golden Fountain by Zuheb Alep

This is a book that I had never heard of before seeing this beautiful cover on NetGalley. The synopsis sounded promising so I requested it and was approved. This book was just bad though. This book had basically no world building except that it is parallel to our own world. There is constant action and honestly it just doesn’t make sense. It feels like it is just thrown all together purely for the action factor but none of it adds up. The constant action also leads to a lack of any character development, background info or anything that would make me connect with the book and care about what is going on. There are tonnes of characters! That many that you really can’t keep track of who the hell is who! Also the similarities to other books or movies was just too much for me to see it as inspiration and not copying the idea from other VERY well known franchises like Harry Potter & Pirates of the Caribbean.
This one I have a full DNF Review for which you can find HERE.

Lirael by Garth Nix

Honestly I don’t even really know why I continued on to this book when I didn’t enjoy the first book in the series that much. This book is the ‘sequel’ to Sabriel however I see it more of a companion as it is set years later and following completely new main characters. My main issue with these books were a lack of connection to the characters. The characters fell flat for me and that lead to me not really caring for them or what happens to them. These books are very heavy on the world building which I usually love but there also needs to be a balance with the other aspects of the book not just a tonne of details on this really unique and thought out world. Like I said I didn’t enjoy the first book and it just went further down hill when you are thrown into a completely different year with new characters after you were just starting to get a feel for the undeveloped characters of the first book.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

This book broke a record for me. Least amount of pages read before DNFing. I’m pretty sure I read 1 chapter, maybe 2? I can’t remember but it was very few pages, I know that much. This book follows a plus size main character, which is great! I love some plus size rep HOWEVER this was not executed well at all. So we find out she is plus size very early in, like the first or second page. That’s cool, we get that she is plus size now, awesome. However after that, it is mentioned once or twice every damn page! I just couldn’t put up with it! Her every second thought was either food or the fact that she is plus size! Like we get it! It got so damn monotonous so quickly!
Honestly I am so glad I didn’t bother with this book after reading some reviews. I highly recommend checking out THIS review on Goodreads if you are curious about how this book progresses.

Twice Dead by Caitlin Seal

My main issue with this book was just a lack of, well, everything. The world wasn’t explained, at all. The magic system wasn’t explained, at all. The background as to why everyone fears necromancy was barely touched on. The main character was bland and undeveloped. Honestly I just didn’t care because everything was so poorly introduced that I felt like I started reading from the middle of the book and couldn’t form a connection or understanding with anything.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

My issue with this one was mainly the writing. For one thing this is another one that just felt too young for me but also the slang and deliberate incorrect spelling to represent the main characters lack of education was just annoying to read. You are also kinda thrown in without a tonne of building. I also found most of the characters flat which didn’t help my interest in the book.

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

I’m not even going to explain this one. I am just going to link to my DNF review of this that I wrote at 2:30 in the morning after DNFing and is honestly one of my favourite reviews. Just go read it HERE.

I took a break!

Copy of Header Image (2)

So, some of you may have noticed that I have been completely absent on my blog & Instagram. Why is that? Well, basically everything was just getting a tad overwhelming.

Firstly, if you didn’t know, I started a youtube channel, which has really affected my blogging as I was spending my spare time filming & editing videos rather than writing blog posts. So I have decided to stop doing reading vlogs except for some ReadAThons. I am also cutting down to less videos, I’m not sure how that is going to work out exactly or when I’m going to post but I will try and figure that out soon.

Next, is my job. If you didn’t know I am a Beauty Therapist and run my own salon as well as working as a seasonal lifeguard. Here in Aus, it has started warming up, so I have been back at work for over a month now. Due to the hours I work, I have less time than in recent months. Also when I do have time, I try and read and end up falling asleep as I’m up at 5 in the morning 5 days a week. So that has been affecting my reading and in consequence, affecting how often I post reviews and other posts relating to recent reading.

Next, I started a candle company! And while we are new and it’s not taking up a tonne of time, it is there and I have been spending some time brainstorming ideas and actually making the candles.

Finally is all my other commitments. I already spoke about YouTube, lifeguarding, candles & beauty therapy but besides that, I am also a Car & Truck Photographer, I am PR for the local Hospital Auxiliary, I run The Ultimate ReadAThon Guide/Calendar, I run the Facebook Group, The YA Book Nerds and I organise an International Book Exchange called, The Book Nerds Book Exchange on Facebook. Outside of that, I’m also in the process of teaching myself how to cut, polish & wax cars. So yeah, I have a lot going on and it’s really been getting a bit much.

I did have a point to this post when I started it I swear!
Anyway, so yeah, I have a lot going on which has affected my blogging. I have made some changes where I can and will hopefully be active again from now! So look forward to me posting again!

This is also for my Bookstagram. I took a break as I just wasn’t feeling like taking photos. Because I was feeling like I had to and the quality was being affected, in my opinion. So I just stopped pushing myself. Hopefully, I will get back into it now, we will see.

Banned Books I’ve Read!

Copy of Header Image (8)

So to go along with Banned Books Week & Banned Books ReadAThon I thought I would share some of the Banned Books that I have read.

I’ll also insert screen captures of why & when these books were banned or challenged if I can find it.

Blog titles (2)

 

Well, this was an obvious one really. Harry Potter is my favourite series of all time and it is definitely one that has been banned and challenges often.

I read this trilogy around the time when the first movie came out and LOVED it! I really need to do a reread of this one!

To Kill a Mockingbird is a book that I had to read in, I think year 10. Since then I have reread it and continued onto the sequel, Go Set a Watchman. While I enjoyed and recommend To Kill a Mockingbird, I think Go Set a Watchman was absolutely pointless.

It’s been a very long time since I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It’s probably at a point that if I hadn’t of watched the movie more recently I would have forgotten what happens. I do remember liking it at the time and I really enjoy the movie. Another one that I am well and truly due for a reread of.

This was one of the first big series I read. I read all 6 VA books back to back and then went straight on to the companion series, Bloodlines. Loved all of them!!

Even though I am in no way a contemporary reader, I did enjoy this one because of the mystery/hunt side of it. It was really interesting.

First off I’m not sure which Goosebumps books I read as it has been ages and I simply don’t remember. But I had heaps of fun reading these in late primary and early high school.

 

I actually haven’t finished this series. I have read The Fellowship of the Ring & The Two Towers but still haven’t gotten to The Return of the King. However,  I am in the process of reading all the books in the LOTR world on audiobook. I have read The Hobbit and hope to get to The Fellow Ship of the Ring during Banned Books ReadAThon.

I’ve read the first two books in The Mortal Instruments series and didn’t particularly care for them. I found city of bones on a couple of the lists but its not one I could find information on.

I am yet to find a classic I can get into. This included. It was fine, it was slightly interesting but for the most part I didn’t know what was going on or really what the point was. Just wasn’t very impressive.
