Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

Okay, so I haven’t been doing the Top Ten Tuesday or Top 5 Wednesday posts for a while. One of them did take a break but I was also really busy during all the ReadAThons and didn’t want to be wasting reading time to write these. So I am finally back doing them however you may realise that I will be posting both my Top Ten Tuesday & Top 5 Wednesday today! That is because when I went to write a blog post yesterday for some reason I thought it was Monday… So I wrote the Liebster Award post instead and then today I went to write the Top Ten Tuesday and realised it is actually Wednesday!
I think what has thrown me off was that I went out to a Rodeo on Saturday night and usually I only go out drinking on Friday nights, so now I’m like a day behind! But anyway! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday!

Prompt: Throwback Freebie -: Ten Books I Loved During The First Year I Started My Blog, Favorite Books Published 5 or 10 or 15 Years Ago, Ten Older Books I Forgot How Much I Loved, etc. etc. Tweak however you want!

You can find my spoiler free review HERE!

2. Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

30237061 (1)

This book is also getting a lot of hype right now! But this is an amazing standalone fantasy book set in a carnival setting! We have a relatively diverse range of characters when it comes to sexual preferences in this book.

You can find my spoiler free review HERE!

3. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

This is an amazing paranormal fantasy series! The characters in this book are amazing, it deals with some more difficult topics throughout the 4 books and Welsh Kings?? What else do you need in life?

5. Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden

2756225

This is the first book in a dystopian series set in Australia! This is an older book and I never see anyone talk about it but it is an amazing book! This is also one of the more realistic dystopian’s, a similar thing to this happening is a huge possibility in the near future.

You can find my spoiler free review HERE!

6. Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor

cover104679-medium

This is a slower book, with tonnes of beautiful description. This book is written in very beautiful writing and it sucks you in with the writing! This is also a very interesting and epic fantasy read as well.

You can find my spoiler free review HERE!

7. The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni

So this one I would more recommend to a middle-grade reader wanting to try YA books! This is an amazing fantasy series with an amazing world, characters and friendships! Oh, and did I mention dragons?

You can find my spoiler free review of Akarnae HERE!

You can find my spoiler free review of Raelia HERE!

You can find my spoiler free review of Draekora HERE!

8. Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This is an amazing Paranormal Fantasy Mystery kind of book! It is also kinda creepy, it’s not scary but with the images in this book, it can be a little creepy!

You can find my spoiler free review of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children HERE!

You can find my spoiler free review of Hollow City HERE!

You can find my spoiler free review of Library of Souls HERE!



Okay, so I only have 8, but I feel like out of the books I have read these would be the best for either an Adult or Middle-Grade reader wanting to get into YA!

Top Ten Tuesday – Series That I Need To Start

Header Image (61)

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

This week’s prompts is: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t (topic originally done March 2013) — anyone else have a mile long list of series to start like I do??



1. The Lunar Chronicles Series by Marissa Meyer

So I have been meaning to start this series for ages! I bought Cinder sometimes last year but still haven’t picked it up. I read Heartless, also by Marissa Meyer and also a retelling and didn’t enjoy it. It wasn’t horrible, but I just didn’t enjoy it, you can find my review for that review HERE. I will be reading Cinder in July as the Book of the Month for a Goodreads group YA Book Bloggers, feel free to join us if you are are YA book blogger haha!

2. Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab

I honestly have no excuse as to why I haven’t started this series! I own the first book in the series but just haven’t picked it up yet! I really want to try some Victoria/V.E. Schwab as I have heard so many amazing things about basically all of her books! I will probably read the first book soon as I am on a book buying ban and I want to get my physical TBR down a tonne before buying anymore books, so I will read this soon.

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series by Laini Taylor

I have read Strange the Dreamer and it is my favourite book so far this year! I wanted to read this series before reading Strange the Dreamer, but since reading it this series is a lot higher on my TBR!

4. Monsters of Verity Series by Victoria Schwab

So, another Victoria/V.E. Schwab series! Like I said before there is so many good comments about her books and that makes me want to read them! Also I have been told that The Savage Song has no romance.. If that is true, then that is awesome! I don’t know about Our Dark Duet as it only released a few days ago and I haven’t seen a tonner about it yet, but I do avoid reading reviews for books I haven’t read, so it may have been mentioned, but I just haven’t seen it!

5. Passenger Series by Alexandra Bracken

I am reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken right now and enjoying it so far! But even before starting The Darkest Minds this book was on my TBR! I also haven’t really read any books about time travel so that is really intriguing me!

6. Dorothy Must Die Series by Danielle Paige

So this was one of the first retellings I ever added to my TBR! And I still haven’t got to it yet!! It seems like there is a tonne of books when you look at the series page on Goodreads because there is 9 prequels to this series, 9!! I think that is what kinda throws me off because each of them are around 100-150 pages! So that is basically 2 full novels before the actual series! And I do want to read them in order as they are prequels. I do still want to read this series though!

7. Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan

So I have been meaning to read a Rick Riordan book in years! But I still haven’t and this one kinda includes Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, The Trials of Apollo & Magnus Chase, The Kane Chronicles and the Gods of Asgard series. So basically all of Rick Riordans books haha! I definitely want to start a Rick Riordan book soon!

8. The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard

So this is only the first 2 books as there is still 3 books to come out! Bloodwitch is the next one but it doesn’t have a cover yet. The world and magic system in this book sounds so interesting and everyone is talking about this book lately and I really want to get in on the hype!

9. The Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson

For one thing these covers are gorgeous! The main reason this is on my TBR is that it is a Fantasy Historical Fiction book! That just sounds so intriguing to me as I’m pretty sure I haven’t read a fantasy historical fiction before, I might have, but I don’t think so! So this is really interesting to me and I’m keen

10. Frostblood Saga by Elly Blake

Again, these covers are gorgeous! This is actually a trilogy but Fireblood actually isn’t out until September and Nightblood isn’t out and doesn’t have a cover yet to use! This book was one of my highly anticipated from last year but I never got around to it! But I really want to get to it soon! It sounds amazing and its very highly praised!



Well that is all for today! I know I missed yesterdays Down the TBR Hole as I just literally forgot! So I will probably do it tomorrow or Thursday!

Top Ten Tuesday – Anticipated Books for the Second Half of 2017

Header Image (37)

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

This week’s prompts is: Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017

Well I don’t know if I have 10, so I’ll just put as many as I have


1. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

34567771

I have read Three Dark Crowns and really enjoyed it! So I’m keen to get to the second/last book in the series! This one comes out in September.

2. The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin

25548744

This is the first book in a new companion series to the Mara Dyer series. I hope to get to the Mara Dyer series soon and then if I enjoy it as much as I hope then I will go straight onto this series when it comes out in November.

3. Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi

DAxKnLJV0AA6mdK

This is another companion book, this one to the book Futhermore by Tahereh Mafi. I also plan to read Furthermore very soon as it has been on my radar for a while and I’m keen to get to it once I get my current physical TBR down a bit more! At the moment I can’t fit anymore books on my TBR shelves! This one is released in August.

4. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

21125680._SY540_

I have only read one book from Leigh Bardugo and that was Shadow and Bone, the first book in the Grisha trilogy! I loved Leigh Bardugo’s writing and I’m interested to see what’s next for her away from the Grisha world! This one is released in August.


Well that is all I have! I haven’t been paying attention to new releases as much this year as last year. There is sooo many books that aren’t new releases that I really want to get to! So I haven’t been checking out tonnes of new releases! There was some I couldn’t stay away from like The Hate U Give, A Court of Wings and Ruin, Caraval, etc. But overall concentrating on older books.
