TBR #21

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 10.22.37 PM

Hello reader/s! I hope you’re well! For a while now, I’ve been writing a weekly or bi-weekly post about books that are on my TBR. TBR, if you don’t know is the abbreviation for To Be Read. My goal here is to shed some light on books that I’ve otherwise forgotten about. These books could be books I’ve been meaning to read from the library, or books that have been collecting dust on my shelves at home. My goal though is to say a little about the book and also give a little reasoning of why I want to read them. In hopes of reading them sooner than later. 

In today’s post I’m discussing two books that I’ve already read, but I’ve been wanting to re-read them for a while! One book I’ve read within the last 2 or 3 years, and the second book is one that I haven’t read for longer than those 2-3 years. Both of these books are Young Adult Fantasy that deal with Angels and Demons. 

The first book I’m talking about is Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

It’s been a few years since I’ve read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I figure since I haven’t even finished the last book in this trilogy; Dreams of Gods and Monsters, I’d figure that I may as well take the time and re-read the whole trilogy!

I remember when I first read this book. It was summer, and it was noonish. My mom was upstairs doing her laundry, and while I was reading this book I was freaking out! I was yelling, and being loud. Just a general fangirl in general. I really want to relive that, so what better way to do that then re-read the book?

The second book I’ll be talking about is Fallen by Lauren Kate.

I first read Fallen, I think, when I was around my 10th year of school, so I was about 15/16 years old? So a while (I feel so old admitting that) ago.  And since Unforgiven has come out a while ago, I thought it’d be the perfect time to re-read the series since I want to read Unforgiven. I’m not too excited for all of the teenage angst though, ahaha.

Taking both of these books into consideration, I really like how different the angels and demons are in these novels.

Have you read either of these books? What did you think of them?

Happy Reading!
Adele

    I really want to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. The covers look great and I’ve heard quite a few good things about it.

    I read Fallen last year and it was a big NOPE for me. I think it’s a book I might have liked more if I read it as a teen. But the MC is really annoying and the conflict was just *shakes head*.

      Yes! Read Daughter of Smoke and Bone! The covers are so pretty <3.
      I definitely feel that if I read Fallen again I won't like it as much as I did the first time I read it. — I definitely know how you feel! I rolled my eyes a lot in Fallen and the rest of the saga.
