Library Reads #48

Hello hello! 👋 Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is about the books I’ve recently borrowed from the library. My Library Reads! I hope you enjoy–and let me know if you’ve read any of the books I mention today. I’d love to know what your thoughts on the book(s) are.

Library Reads: I’m a huge fan of libraries. I tend to visit the library quite often, and I even come across great finds. These Library Reads posts are where I write a tad about the books I’ve borrowed.

In this post I’ll write about what books I borrowed, and what I think of the books before I actually start reading them. Whether what I say is a sentence or a few sentences long, here I catalogue the books I’ve borrowed. — From doing these posts I hope to spread a little love for libraries and the stories they can give us.


The first time I tried to write this post, was back in August of 2020. It’s been a while since I’d done a Library Reads post.

Here’s what I’ve gotten from the library back in August 2020. It’s been a long time, I know! 😂

Books I Hope to Read Soon | Part 1/?

Hello there, friend! I thought I’d try a new kind of post today, where I talk about the books that I want to try reading soon.

I’ve had these books on my mind for a while, so I’m happy to be able to talk about them. I always say that I’m going to read a book, and the I ultimately end up not reading the book because I’ve either forgot that it exists, OR other books take my attention.

The first on the list is: Continue reading

March 2018 Wrap Up

Screen Shot 2018-03-26 at 4.25.57 PMHello lovelies! Welcome to another Wrap Up! I guess it’s just that time of the month for this, eh?

Last month was an exceptionally good reading month for me. This month I still managed to read quite a few books. I even wanted to try and read about 5 or 6 ARCs, since last month I read 10(!!). I need want to catch up on them (I have so many *stress-cries*). While I’m glad to say that my feedback ration on Netgalley has gone up, that’s only because the ARC’s that I tried to read just weren’t for me. At all.. 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).

September 2017 Wrap Up

unnamed

My TBR this September contained 5 books. I usually have a max of 3 books a month, since that seems to be the amount of books that I can handle. However, I got stressed and amped the books up from the usual 3 books to 5 books. Especially with reading library books, and just being busy with life in general.

The books that I had on my TBR this month (from left to right) were: I See You by Clare Mackintosh, Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody, The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke, Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep.

Of the 5 books I had on my TBR this month, I only managed to read 2 of them; The Daughter of the Burning City, and, Spider’s Bite. However, I did start reading I See You — but I See You is so incredibly detailed (and I’m only 10 pages in) that the book is slower than I thought it would be.

The Books I read this September (15):

July Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1Hello, everyone! Today’s post will be my Wrap-Up for July. July was an especially weird month for me, weather wise. I remember it rained for a little bit here and there. Usually in the summer months it doesn’t rain. At all. Let’s get down to it, shall we?


unnamed-16My TBR for July consisted of 4 books: The first book would be a re-read, and the rest being books I haven’t read before but, they’re part of their own series. The books making my TBR this month were (from left to right): The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (The Ubncemoning of Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin, The Infinite (Gates of Thread and Stone, #2) by Lori M. Lee, Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3) by Sara Raasch, and finally, The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #3) by Erika Johansen. Continue reading

Library Reads #28

libraryrreadsLibrary Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from either one library, of a few libraries. I’ll tell you a little bit about what I expect from the book, or the author’s writings. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentence’s. From doing these posts, I hope to spread a little of my love for libraries, while also informing you of books that you may or may not have known of!

One of my favourite things to do is borrow books from the library. I get to borrow a book, take it home, and read it. If I end up not liking, or I didn’t enjoy the book, then it’s not problem for me! I just return the book and move on with my life.

Here are the books that I’ve borrowed from the last half of May to end of June. Let me know if you’ve read, or want to read any of these books — Enjoy! Continue reading

5 Book Sequels That Have Disappointed Me

5disseqFor me there are always a few books in their series/trilogies/duologues that disappoint me. I’ll read the first book and then when the time comes around to read the second book, sometimes even further into the series, I find that I’m left disappointed. Either I don’t like where the story is going, the writing, or just the plot of the sequel(s).

I’ve actually gotten into the habit of starting a lot of series but never end up reading the rest of the sequels because I’m legitimately afraid that the second book will ruin the first one for me. Reading a sequel that was a disappointment has actually resulted in me not enjoying the first book as much. Here are 5 book sequels that have disappointed me.
