TTT: Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

This is such a cool topic! For me, one of the best things about reading is meeting new worlds. That’s why I love fantasy! I can already think of many I would love to live in! Even tho, half of the time fantasy worlds are definitely not the easiest to live in…

I will be mentioning 8 worlds I would love to live in and explaining my top 4! And 8 worlds I just couldn’t possibly endure, and explaining my top 4 as well.

*If I have a review for any of the books mentioned it will be linked to the cover*

Which Bookish Worlds would you love to live in? Which ones you wouldn’t?

But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.

September Wrap-up And October TBR

img_5992

Hey guys!! It’s already end of this month and I am super happy because I love cozy clothes and snuggling in blankets! ❤ Anyone else??

This month I actually managed  to read everything that was in my TBR for September and a bit more! I read 8 books. Although 2 of them were re-reads.

Also I am super proud that I ended all my Summer reading list in the month! (a bit late but I DID it).

So here they are:

8621462.jpg  10507293  16248068.jpg

18635016  22918050.jpg  26074181

28813854  30807954

  1. A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness – ★★★★★
  2. The Selection – Kiera Cass – ★★★★★
  3. The Elite – Kiera Cass – ★★★★☆
  4. The One –  Kiera Cass – ★★★★★
  5. The Heir – Kiera Cass – ★★★½☆☆
  6. The Crown – Kiera Cass – ★★★★☆
  7. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes – ★★★★★
  8. Melody’s key – Dallas Coryell – ★★★★½

So, this month I read all the books in the The Selection series. And I really loved them!! The first book is for sure my favorite with The One being close by. I totally can see why people did’t enjoy The Heir and The Crown so much but I still had a great time reading them!

I read A Monster Calls mainly because the movie is coming out, but I couldn’t be happier with that decision!! It was a powerful book and I wasn’t expecting it at all!! It was beautifully sad and I would recommend it for sure!!

Me Before You was as amazing as I was expecting! I am so happy I finally read this book!! It’s being on my TBR for quite a while!!

Also I just ended Melody’s Key and I loved it! It has that old feeling to it and a cute love story! And it was nice to have had a new adult book to my list since I tend to read more YA!

I think my favorite book for the month is Me Before You with  A Monster Calls being incredibly close! It’s actually difficult to choose one of them but I will go with that…

What was your favorite book for this month??

 

– You can check my page: https://bookneeders.wordpress.com/my-2016-reads/ for more information about all the books I read through the year; and about the books themselves through the links to Goodreads!

I am putting the reviews that are missing for them in October, so make sure you check it out! ❤


IMG_6017.jpg

For my October TBR, I couldn’t be more lost… I always have an idea of what I will read… At least one book but this month I didn’t really know, but I think I will go for a bit of Halloween Books – and I will post a TAG with some ideas for halloween books in early October – because I feel like my mood changes with the seasons and I always want a different type of book in some season. October/November is perfect for spooky ones – or kinda supernatural stuff… what do you guys think?

I will probably pick up:

I’m reading this month Fortunately the Milk since it came in the same box set as Coraline and The Graveyard Book and Twilight because I wanna read the reimagined version of it! And probably I will end up reading through the series, let’s see! 😛 If not I will read Six of Crows still this month! I’m so excited!!

 

Any idea of what you may read this month? Also any suggestion for a fall/winter mood type of book? >.<

August Wrap-up And September TBR

IMG_5906

Hey guys!! This month I finally got time for more reading! I read 6 books. Actually I read 4 books and re-read other 2. I could have done better but one ALMOST put me in a reading slump >.< But I passed it and I had the best time reading some others!

Also, since I bought two that I long wanted to read this month I kinda changed my last month TBR that will actually move almost all to September!

I realized that I can’t end my summer reading list in the summer but almost!! So it Looks like this now:

  1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  2. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
  3. Isla and the Happily Ever After  by Stephanie Perkins 
  4. Cress by Marissa Meyer  
  5. Winter by Marissa Meyer  
  6. The Storm by Virginia Bergin 
  7. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  8. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
  9. Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
  10. The One by Kiera Cass 

I am missing one book to read that I will do in September!

So, this month I read: Isla and the Happily Ever After and Allegiant that was in my TBR for this month. But to read Allegiant I had to re-read Divergent and Insurgent because I was not remembering a thing! I Also finally read Cress and Winter and OMG I loved it so so much!!! I still remembered all of Cinder and Scarlet so it was pretty easy to go into the world again and I am so happy I did!!!

  4. Allegiant – Veronica Roth – ★★★☆☆
  5. Cress – Marisa Meyer – ★★★★★

For my August TBR hopefully I will at least re-read and continue with the selection series!

So my plans are:

10507293  16248068.jpg  18635016  22918050.jpg26074181  8621462.jpg

 

I am super excited to end The Selection Series although I am a bit afraid of the last two books since the reviews I saw are making them seem a bit too much since it was originally a trilogy but either way I really wanna read them! Have you read them?? What is your opinion on them?? 

Also I want to read The Monster Calls in September or first thing in October before the movie release! SO EXCITED!!!!

 

What books do you intend to read in August???
