Life recently has been really busy, I’ve been working on assignments and dissertation, and to top it off hunting for jobs, because my time at uni is nearly up. All of this has meant that I’ve had practically no time to read, and I’ve caught myself on more than one occasion longing to have a book in my hands. Being busy with all this work hasn’t stopped my book buying though! But this is probably just adding to my dilemma, because I know that I have so many wonderful books waiting for me to read. I’ve created a list of all the books I wish I could be reading right now, and as soon as I get some free time I will be diving into these books! Continue reading “What I Wish I Was Reading”
My Dream Author Panel
J. K. Rowling
Sarah J. Maas
I’ve always looked at the Falling Kingdoms books and been slightly intimated by the fact that they’re still being released! However, I have actually read the first book and I’m looking forward to the rest.
As previously mentioned I loved ACOMAF, so of course Feyre and Rhysand are pretty high up on my list of bookish OTPs, however they’re also alongside Arin and Kestrel from The Winner’s trilogy, because I also adored those books and both characters!
I couldn’t think of a particular series, but an author definitely sprang to mind! I’ve never read anything by Colleen Hoover, but I do really want to. I really enjoy reading New Adult, and there’s been lots of praise for her books in the bookish community, so I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on one (preferably with the American cover) and giving Colleen Hoover a go!
Although they aren’t collector’s editions I would love to own the Penguin Vintage Classics Austen Series, particularly Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma and Sense and Sensibility as they are my favourites. The covers of the Penguin editions are absolutely beautiful, and I hope to one day own all of the Austen collection.
I’m highly anticipating the release of Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. It’s a a fantasy novel that sounds like it’s going to be pretty damn good!
It feels like I’ve been waiting a long time for a lot of books, one series that springs to mind is the illustrated Harry Potter books, waiting for a new one every year is going to be torture!
I’m not tagging anyone in particular, but I would love to see how you answer the questions! Now, time to hunt some Pokémon!
What I Read
Title: Heir of Fire
(Throne of Glass #3)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: September 11th,
Although I’ve recently been loving fantasy novels, this YA contemporary sounds right up my street, and I think it would be perfect to read by the pool!
I’m in a really fantasy place at the moment and this book is really appealing to my current reading state of mind.
I’m up to date with the Throne of Glass novels, so now all that’s left until September 6th is to read The Assassin’s Blade!
I adored Louise O’Neill’s Only Ever Yours, and I’ve seen a lot about this book online and in the media. Not only that, but this YA book has now also been republished as an adult novel.
I saw someone speak about this book on booktube and as soon as I saw the description I knew that this is a book that I really want to read!!
Regan from Peruse Project raved about this book quite a bit and I looked it up and it really appealed to me! But I’m not going to lie, the £10 price tag for a paperback has put me off purchasing it just yet!
This is a book that I’ve seen and heard quite a lot about in the bookish world and it caught my interest. This book is part of Amazon’s current buy three selected paperbacks for £10 offer, which obviously makes it a bit more inviting!
What books do you wish you had for this summer (or winter for all those on the other side of the world!) Let me know in the comments!
I’m planning on doing a few summer related posts, so if you have any post ideas you’d like to see then please let me know!
