Books that Remind Me of Autumn

BOOKS THAT REMIND ME OF AUTUMN & WHY??

Hello! I thought today’s post would be about the books that remind me of Autumn, and why they do so. So without a further adieu, here are the books that remind me of Autumn!

These books have a certain colour scheme, or for some subconsious reason, the cover just strikes me as Autumn. Or I’ve read the book and in my head I now associate a certain book with the Autumn months. Are there any books that remind you of Autumn/Fall? Let me know!

Fall Time, Cozy Time | Book Tag

IMG_5940 copyAutumn/Fall; whichever you prefer, is my favourite season. I was born in Autumn, and Autumn will remain my favourite. The main reason why I like Autumn the most is because I feel like I can finally stretch my body comfortably. I love the feeling of the cold wrap around my body, I am home. I am home during the cooler months.

I found this tag via Lindsey @paradisbooks. I haven’t actually done a tag in a while, so this should be exciting! For me anyway, haha.

TBR Tuesday #11

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 10.22.37 PM

Hello reader/s! I hope you’re well today! I’ve recently decided to have a 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.

The weather is supposed to get up to 27C today! That’ll be the hottest it’s been in a while! I hope I can survive today, because I don’t want to melt in the heat. But thank goodness for air conditioning! Whew!

Today’s post is all about Fantasy! The first book is more of a Dystopian, which does fall under the Fantasy genre. I’m a huge fan of Fantasy; I seem to enjoy Fantasy books way more than any other genre. Anyway – both of these books have been on my TBR for a while now. I know they’ve been on my TBR list (yes, list) for more than a year, but they’ve been on my shelf for I’d say, just about a year, if not more.  Continue reading

Library Reads | #9

So I went to the library, only expecting to get one or two books, and ended up borrowing six books. Libraries are seriously addicting. I can’t stop going and borrowing out books.

The reason why I went to the library today was to pick up this first book,:

A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
This book is a historical thriller novel. Thats all I really want to say about it. And while I dont normally like historical books, I really loved this one. Have you seen the cover of the book? It’s so friggin’ pretty. [EDIT: I’ve since reviewed this book.]

Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne
OK, so I pulled this randomly off the shelf and and like “whats this all about” and then I read the synopsis and the book seemed familiar, but I know I hadn’t read it. Midnight Thief is about a girl (Kyra) who steals what she needs but when the “leader of the Assassins Guild” wants her to do a job, she’s very adamant about it. She doesn’t want to do it but (and this is literally what the book says) is that the leader of the AG is a “darkly attractive” dude. so. I was like, WHY NOT?!

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
Let me be honest, I saw this book on my tumblr feed randomly and the title just stuck with me. The cover for this book is SO pretty and it has little gears in the background so maybe this is a Steampunk novel?? I hope there isn’t any love triangles in this book. I am seriously, *so done* with love triangles.

Fingerprints of You by Kristen-Paige Madonia
I hope that this book will have more insight on teen pregnancy. After reading the synopsis though, I think that will only become the background story? I think the main focus of the story will be finding her father.

The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis
So i don’t know if this story will have a particular message that some books have, but I am excited about the novel anyway because the MC might be falling for a kid her age who, is a drug lord, and who is raising his little sister.

Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule
I’ve had this book in the back of my mind for a while now! I actually heard about this book a while ago and I’ve waited for a library to have it ever since. The story is about a girl who loves (and is really talented at) singing. Then, Sing (ironic name, no??), gets a part in the school play. I think then after that some rumours about the school; which Sing never payed attention to, are true? I have no idea about this one, but I am *so* intrigued.

That’s all for this week, folks! Thanks for reading! What are you reading this week?

Until next time,
Adele.
