April Theme: Purple

QOTD: How does your reading goals look so far this year?

I started off strong this year and slowly got into a slump. I have been busy building an island on Animal Crossing New horizons the last week and a half. But with April coming up on us I am slowly getting back into it.  So what are you reading?

March Theme and Short ‘TBR

 

march theme.jpgI feel like March is already moving too fast.
QOTD: What was the last book you read?
I started to listen to Catching Fire. I have had a book hangover since reading Take It so I haven’t picked a ebook or physically book up yet. But I did get the new Sarah J Maas book and Marie Lu book so those are on my TBR for the month

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

“It sure is ugly.”

“Ugly, never hurt a thing.” 

I scoffed. “Oh, ugly has hurt some things. It’s just that pretty hurts more.” 

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater.

5 out of 5 stars

Out of all the books in the Shiver series I think this one was the most satisfying. At the end of Forever I had so many questions about who Cole was. I love that we got to see more from him. I hope that there will be more books to come form other characters as well.

Cole and Isabel share a past that never seemed to have a future. They have the power to love each other and the power to tear each other apart. The only thing for certain is that they cannot let go.

Fake It by Victoria Kinnaird

Happy Musical Monday! I read a awesome YA LGBTQ+ book about a group of friends trying to make a semi decent band and make it through their senior year of high school in one piece. I loved this story and the characters. I especially loved one of the main characters, JJ Keswick. The flow of this book was easy to get into and I was hooked on the story from start to finish. One unique thing that I absolutely loved was the author put song titles at the start of each chapter to make a playlist for the book. The playlist sets the mood for each chapter as well as the overall book. I got to discover new bands and remember old favorites while reading. 

QOTD: If you could choice one song to be your theme song what would it be?

Fake It by Victoria Kinnaird 5 out of 5 stars.

🌈******************************🌈

Jack Daveyson grew up with a guitar in his hands and his head full of melodies. Ten years after writing his first riff, he knows exactly what he wants to do with his life – graduate high school, escape Wayville and hit the road with his band, Forever Fading Echoes.

But it’s a bit hard to launch a band without a singer. Enter JJ Keswick.

JJ is everything Jack isn’t: rich, confident and popular. He also happens to be one of the best singers Jack has ever heard.

Jack reluctantly lets JJ into his band and into his life. The spark between them in the practice studio grows into something neither of them were expecting – a love that threatens to tear their lives apart.

Pack your guitar, pull on your band tee shirt and turn up the volume – it’s time to meet your new favorite band.

Single Awareness day and weekend TBR

Happy single awareness day! What are you reading this weekend?

I got 2 new ARCs which was a huge surprise! I am always shocked when I get ARC’s and am super grateful for them. 

I am still trudging through The Hunger games. I am on Chapter 9 so a little behind in my game plans. I need to be at chapter 14 by tomorrow which I am sure I can get to easily. 

I got my preorder of The Queens Assassin by Melissa De LA Cruz. I really want to dive into this one as well but I am not sure with all the other books i am currently reading if I will get to it this weekend.

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Forever.jpg“People don’t change who they are. They only change what they do with it.” 

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

5 out of 5 stars

I was super surprised by this series. This came out a long time ago, when I was in high school and I avoided this series because people said it was like Twilight. I will tell you, it is nothing like Twilight. It was gripping and intense. I loved every book so much and ever turn in the story. I think Forever is my favorite of the series. Maggie knew how to close it out and she did it very well. 

🐝******************************🐝

Add a playlist: Catch me if You Can by Set it Off. 

🐝******************************🐝

In Maggie Stiefvater’s SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they fought to be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.

See Her by Natalie Parker

I received See Her as  a ARC for a honest review. I did enjoy this book. I don’t know if it was my cup of tea fully. It was a swoon slow read that would be great for a cold winters night with  a hot cup of coco and a warm fireplace. But for me it was a little two slow. But what I did really love that the author did was make a realistic relationship. 

There are so many romance novels with drama, and fights, and hard topics. This romance novel shows what a gentleman is. Jack was my favorite character in this book. He was the one I connect with who was trying to keep things real as his dreams come true. He wants the best of both worlds and he is determined to make that happen as his band gets big and he finds the love of his life. 

The cons for me of this book was I felt the first 10 chapters dragged on. I see why they were important but it was really hard for me to get into the book. I am so use to fast paced reads and too slow down was hard. 

I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars

Add a playlist: Something Wild by Lindsey Striling feat, Andrew McMahon in the wilderness. 

🐝******************************🐝

A music label wants my band. I just want her.

I never knew a smile had the power to change the course of a life…

Until she smiled at me and shifted my world off its axis.

My writer’s block? Gone.

My band’s music? Revitalized.

My heart? Hers.

There’s no way I couldn’t marry her the first chance I got.

They said we were crazy, that getting married after four months was too fast.

I don’t care. I love her more than anything.

And then my band gets the call that changes everything…

My dreams are all coming true, but what will the sudden rush of rock and roll success do to our new marriage? Can I really keep the love of my life and manage a new life on the road with my band’s rise to fame?

One thing’s for sure; I’m not doing this without her

QOTD: What books are you excited to be released this month?

 I completely forgot that Melissa De La Cruz is coming out with a new book. I saw it last year at book con but didn’t have the luck to snag a copy. I preordered this baby the other day. Now it’s the waiting game of watching the UPS trucks pass by while I impatiently wait for my book.

The Hunger Games Read-Along

“Kind people have a way of working their way inside me and rooting there.” ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

🐝******************************🐝

I am so excited for the new book this year. It is less than 5 month away from dropping! I really want to reread this series and watch the movies before the new book drops. Feel free to join me on rereading The Hunger games. Here is the break down of the reading schedule for the first book; The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Starts February 1st Week one (February 1st to February 8th) Read Chapter 1 to Chapter 7 Week two (February 9th to February 15th) Chapter 7 to 14

Week three (February 16th to February 22nd) Chapter 14 to chapter 21

Week four (February 23rd to February 29th) Chapter 21 to the end of the book.

This is roughly about 93 pages a week or 13 pages a day. Of course everyone reads at their own pace so feel free to go as fast and as slow as you want. At the end of each week I will open a discussion group chat to talk about what is going on in the book according to the schedule so those who have never read The Hunger Games do not get spoiled along the way. If you are part taking in the read-along with me please comment below so I can add you to the chat! March we will read Catching Fire. April will be Mockingjay and May The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (releasing on May19th) Happy reading!
