To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.

Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?

‘Bella?’ Edward’s soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, and kissed me again. His kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine – like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us. As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself…

October Wrap-up And November TBR

IMG_6056.JPG

Hey there book lovers!!

This is halloween, this is halloween

Halloween! halloween! halloween! halloween!

Happy Halloween you all!!

-Yeah yeah I know it’s tomorrow but I am celebrating today since tomorrow is  Monday …-

And it’s time for a October Wrap-up! I can’t believe it’s already the end of October…It’s passing so fast >.< But I can’t really complain because… next stop… CHRISTMAS!! ❤ Ah I love this time of the year with the exception of the cold… 😛

This month I read 10 books with one being a manga book and two of them being kind of a re-read. I say kind of because the first time I read those books they were in a different language! I also started one more but I couldn’t end it by the end of the month so it will move to November!

 

So for this month we have:

27230649  5499874  17206921.jpg  15924983  30813842  871224  2243541.jpg  cover98773-medium  3358608.jpg  8033769

  1. Coraline – Neil Gaiman – ★★★½☆☆
  2. The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman – ★★★★★
  3. Fortunately, the Milk – Neil Gaiman – ★★★½☆☆
  4. Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen – ★★★★★
  5. A Wizard’s Forge – A.M. Justice – ★★★★★
  6. Twilight – Stephenie Meyer – ★★★★☆
  7. New Moon – Stephenie Meyer – ★★★★☆
  8. Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas Manga – Jun Asuka – ★★★½☆☆
  9. Eclipse – Stephenie Meyer -★★★☆☆
  10. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella – ★★★★☆

 

For October I read mainly some halloween-y type of books! I read 3 books by Neil Gaiman and I really liked them but I was expecting to like them more… Maybe it’s because they are middle grade books and it’s difficult for me to enter in that spirit 😛 Anyway from all the 3 I can say that I LOVED LOVED LOVED The Graveyard Book! It was beautiful and super creative! And that was also the one I had the higher hopes on!

I read one classic – Sense and Sensibility and I couldn’t have loved it more! I never expected enjoying it this much but now I am much more excited to read some more classics!

A Wizard’s Forge was a book I requested to read in my computer and it’s difficult to read it there because I hate the light but  I was so hooked! I loved it so much! Much probably will be a favorite of this year! Next time I hope I will be able to read them in a kindle – so much easier 😛

And to end this months book I started re-reading the first books of Twilight, I remember really liking them but I never read the rest of them. So I thought Halloween was the perfect time!

This month is difficult to choose a favorite… I really loved The Graveyard BookSense and Sensibility and A Wizard’s Forge. But the one that made me more surprised was definitely A Wizard’s Forge! 

 

– You can check my page: https://bookneeders.wordpress.com/my-2016-reads/ for more information about all the books I read through the year – I will update the list every week with the reviews of every book so make sure you check it out!❤ – and about the books themselves through the links to Goodreads!


img_6060

For my November TBR, I already made a list of the books that I want to read because I think it’s the perfect month for some of them. I usually read a bit more “heavy” books in November, don’t really know why but I just enjoy them more…

I will pick up:

5311113.jpg 29953853  26539618.jpg  11047554.jpg  7862519.jpg  7889113.jpg

I started Breaking Dawn in October and I will end it this month and conclude the Twilight Saga!

This month I will also read two e-books that I got from NetGalley – The Story Traveler and maybe All that Remains and I think I will finally read the Millennium trilogy! I already saw the movie for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I never read the book so I will read them all this month since I thought the movie was super “heavy” and the books probably too. And hopefully I will see the rest of the movies!

If I can still read Life and Death from Twilight this month I will but I won’t put i in my TBR for now because I don’t think I can since the Millennium Trilogy is quite big.

 

What was your favorite book in October?

What book are you most anxious to read in November?

Hope you all have an amazing HALLOWEEN!

Best Halloween Books

MUAHAHAHA!! Sorry… Oh! Hi guys!!!

It’s Halloween month!! Anyone here that loves halloween other than me? 

I love this time of the year! I love the blankets, the candles, the warm sweaters, and to snuggle with books with a cup of hot tea or chocolate ❤

So I decided to read some books related to this time, some spooky cute stories or some supernatural ones, like I mentioned in my last TBR.

I will now share 12 books that I would love to read in this time of the year! I am not a very big fan of horror so I will go with stuff I feel I always loved to read in this month, like vampires, witches, strange things, supernatural things… 

In the end I will mention 5 books that have very good reviews on it that I would totally read if I wasn’t a chicken.

Hope you guys like the ideas!

In no particular order:

(all photos linking to goodreads)

1. The Graveyard Book by Nail Gaiman

I am so excited to read this book!! I heard great things about it and finally I have it!! And I love the cover of this book. It’s illustrated by Chris Riddell that wrote the Goth Girl series and if you haven’t seen it’s illustrations yet they are amazing!!

20764916

 

2. Coraline by Nail Gaiman

Also I will finally pick this one up!! And of course see the movie! I think I saw it already but it was long ago and I can’t really remember, which is awesome if I am going to read the book 😛

3. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Well this one I know it’s not for everybody but I personally love it! And I really wanna read the reimagined version and compare!

9460487

 

 

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I already read this books and it was spring but I think this would be a good read for now! It’s not spooky but it’s just… peculiar… and I loved the story and the odd photographies! And if you haven’t read it yet what better time than now that the movie is coming out?!

5287473.jpg

 

5. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

I personally love books that talk about witches… And this one is for sure one that I will read! It seems super interesting and totally right out of my alley!!

18660669.jpg

 

 

6. Vampire Academy by Rachel Meed

Once again we have vampires and this series is pretty good! I love anything vampire but this one I would for sure recommend! I read this way too long ago and I never ended the series but I intend to buy the box set probably still this year!

11408650

 

7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

I heard so great things about this book! I love the synopsis and a lot of people say that it actually has some creepiness to it and I can’t wait to buy this trilogy!!

9378297.jpg

 

 

8. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

This is not a very creepy book at all but because it has ghosts I thought why not? It’s such a different book! If you haven’t read this one check out the synopsis in the image, it’s awesome!!

12043771.jpg

 

9. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

I am not a big fan of anything zombie but this book really intrigued me and will be probably the only book I will read ever about zombies! Zombies creep me out way too much!

12813630.jpg

 

 

10. The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black

And last but not least The Coldest Girl in Cold Town that I have been wanting to read for far too much time! I just think it has the perfect atmosphere for this time of the year!!

And for some Classics we have:

14800993.jpg

11. Dracula by Bram Stoker

This is a classic that has been in my TBR from some time now and I haven’t bought it yet because I always want to buy it for halloween and that just never happens! But for sure I will read it and hopefully love it!

12974171.jpg

 

12. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

This is another one with the same problem that I so much want to read and much probably I will have to just buy it in a random time and save it a bit for halloween (or not because I really wanna read it super badly :p)

 

And I will just mention one more that I loved to read as a kid: The Witches by Roald Dahl.


I will now mention 5 books I would totally read in October – that are already considered as horror – but that I don’t think I am up to it yet. Also the link for goodreads is in the names!

Here they are in no particular order:

1. The Shining by Stephen King

I admit I always kinda wanted to read Stephen King because I heard great things about his books but I don’t feel brave enough yet if it actually is horror… What do you guys think??

2. Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell

This one is in my ‘maybe pile’ and it actually seems awesome but way too creepy for me right now. But for sure one day!

3. Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn

Also in my ‘maybe pile’ and this one is a creepy children’s book! It actually seems interesting but for now I don’t intend to buy it… Although the synopsis looks actually very nice!

4. Ashwood  by C.J. Malarsky

This book has a freaky cover!! It’s totally new and it seems awesomely creepy! I would love to read this one one day!! Totally check the synopsis! It seems so different!

5. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

This one is a graphic novel! Okay… this I don’t think I will ever buy. I love Sabrina the Teenage Witch too much to change my opinion reading a horror type of it. Unless someone really tells me I should read it. Should I?

Did you guys like this TAG?? Recommend me some books for halloween!

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??

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:

20764916  5499874.jpg  17206921.jpg  41865.jpg  26874617  26642116.jpg

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? >.<
