January 2019 Wrap Up, Book Haul & Thoughts

img_7631Hello friends! Welcome, welcome. Today’s post is my January 2019 (!!!!!!!!) Wrap Up and Book Haul. 

It’s been long time since I last posted a monthly TBR on my Instagram… When I first posted my TBR for January, I wasn’t sure on whether or not I’d end up completing the TBR pile since I was pretty sick between the day after Christmas until through halfway of January.

The books I had planned to read this month were:

(SPOILERS) Empire of Storms, by Sarah J. Maas | Book Review

Hello friends! Today’s post is my review of the fifth (5th) book from the Throne of Glass series, Empire of Storms, by Sarah J. Maas.

Enjoy!

My review of Empire of Storms has some pretty major spoilers.
You’ve been warned!

28260587The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.

With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Timesbestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what—and who—to sacrifice if she’s to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.

Back when Empire of Storms was published, I bought it as an e-copy and was hesitant to read it. Because true to Maas’ form, she wrote more and more characters into the story. And at that time of me trying to read EoS, I just wasn’t having it. So I put the book down and vowed that if I tried to read it again, I’d wait until the last book was published.

And here we are. Continue reading

November & December Wrap Up + BOOK HAUL! | 2018

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1Hello friends! I’m back, finally. And it’s nearing the end of this year! Woah, this past year went by so quickly, so I’m certain that the next years will go by even faster.

The break I had taken from blogging was actually a great thing that I chose to do. Not only did I decide at the last minute to hand craft a bunch of gifts this year, but I did so with very little time left in the year. Now that the holidays have passed I can read again!!

Having not reading as much as I wanted to these last few months have been a huge bummer. I still read here and there, and there was even a week or two where I did nothing but read or watch anime and catch up on a few youtube videos, but I missed being able to read whenever I wanted to, and I missed being able to participate in the book community.. Like I said though, I did manage to read a bit!

With this post being a wrap up of the last two months of my life, not much has happened on Adele Is Reading, thus, the Wrap Up’s are going to be shorter than usual. Continue reading

December 2017 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello, and Happy New Year! I hope your celebrations went well, and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

Onto the December 2018 Wrap-Up! — I didn’t have a TBR for this month, because I knew that with Chirstmas this last month, things and life in general would be incredibly hectic. Yet I managed to read 10 books! Considering it was the busy hustle-and-bustle of the Holidays and Celebrations were to be had, I did pretty well with my readings!

I bought a LOT of books in December. I only received one, which I’m not at all complaining about. I’ve read the book, and I honestly, genuinely enjoyed it. I know I’m going to re-read it this 2018 (hopefully).

Books I’m Looking Forward to this Autumn Part 1 | 2016

I’ve never really done a Seasonal type of post before, where I can talk about the books that are being published that season.. But I figure that Autumn is a great start because I absolutely love Autumn and what Autumn offers. Anyway! Back to the books.

There are quite a few books being published every season, yet, in the book world, Autumn always feels like its the season where publishers dump a truck-load of books into stores. And then we readers are left scrambling trying to find copies of the books we want to read.

The books that I’m most looking forward to this Autumn season are:
