Top Ten Tuesday – Books on my spring TBR

This won’t be a TBR exactly because I never really follow TBR’s, I just sort of read whatever I’m fancying at the time, I guess I’ve become more of a mood reader over the past few months because I’m just not sticking to them anymore, so instead of a TBR so to speak here are 10 books sitting on my shelf that I would like to get round to pretty soon!

   Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

This book I’m REALLY hoping to read pretty soon, I’m currently re-reading the other two in the series as this is currently in the post and will be delivered hopefully the day it this post comes up. I really want it to anyway! I have super high hopes for this book because I loved the other two and they both ended up being 5 star reads so I’m predicting this one as 5 stars, watch this space and all that jazz.

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

I’ve been on a bit of a CoHo train lately and have been having a very mixed love/hate relationship with her books, most of her’s have been new adult that I’ve picked up and I believe this is YA so I hope to get around to this soon to see how different her characters and all that sort of stuff is compared to her new adult books, I have heard quite good things about this book though so I am excited to get around to reading it!

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

This is for two reasons, one being that I’m actually trying to finish series (even though there is a third one coming out) before I start some more, I will fail of course because 2018 has so many amazing book 1 in a series that I won’t be able to help myself, but I did read Nevernight last year and I ended up really enjoying it so I do have high hopes for this book, especially with how the first book left as I really need to know what’s going to happen to everyone.

 

There’s someone inside your house by Stephanie Perkins

I love Anna and the French kiss and the rest of the books in the series but of course that is contemporary, I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on this book but I’ve also heard it’s sort of like Scream the movie in a way and although I’m a big baby when it comes to scary things I think I’d quite enjoy this, that and I’ve had it on my shelf for so long now and I just think it’s time I finally pick it up and see if I love it or hate it! 😀

 

Split Second by Kasie West

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that I love Kasie West and i’ll read pretty much anythingggg she writes because she is amazing!!! I read Pivot Point last year and loved it (team trevor!!!!) so i really want to pick this up at somepoint over the next few months, hopefully sooner rather than later but reading slumps like to hit me left right and center so who know’s when i’ll actually get around to picking this up xD

Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

This book is one of the books that I have SUCH high expectations for, i’m also pretty sure that it’s going to make me cry buckets but i think i’m going to be okay with that? A lot of my friends on goodreads have all rated this book pretty high from 4-5 stars and it was on sale over christmas so i brought it and it’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now so i really want to read this pretty soon! 🙂

 

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Unless you’ve been living in a rock the past month you should know about this book and the hype surrounding this book by the look of it seems to well deserved and i really really can’t wait to find out for myself. my copy arrived a few weeks ago so i think this will be one of the books that i will break my “finish series you’ve already started before starting another one” rule because i just need to read it and love it as much as everyone else does!!!

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson writes some pretty amazing (if maybe sometimes too long?) books and this is the only one i actually have on my shelf by her that i haven’t read it. i feel like it should probably be saved for the summer instead of spring but it has a cute friends to lovers trope by the sound of it which im 100% okay and here for so i want to pick this up during spring to get me in the mood for summer, it’s snowy here in the uk at the moment so i could do with some summery reads so i can pretend it’s not really cold outside.

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

OKAY look at that cover!!!! I have to mention it because it is so gorgeous and i love just looking it at my shelf. i’ve heard really good things about this book, it does seem a little spooky which isn’t always what i go for because i am a big wimp and mainly read at night so y’no??? scary books and me never mix xD
i still have pretty high hopes that i’m going to end up loving this witchy book!!!
i plan to read this pretty soon, i’m BRing with a friend and just waiting for her copy to get here 🙂

The astonishing colour of after by Emily X.R. Pan

I know for sure that I plan on reading this over the next few weeks/next month, i have an arc of this through netgalley and although it sounds a little…odd? i for sure feel like it’s going to be a very moving and thought provoking book and i’m really looking forward to reading it.  plus anyone who has read it has given it 5 stars (a few 4) so i know it’s thought highly of so i’m looking forward to finally getting around to reading it!! 🙂

Have you read, want to read any of the books on my list?
If so I’d love to hear your thoughts below in the comments 🙂

I’m back // with a let’s chat???

I’m baccccckkk!
I miss it terribly, I’m sort of out of my reading/life slump so decided to come back, for the time being I’m not going to have any sort of real schedule, I’m just going to post as and when! 💕💕
I’ve also had a little new logo design made by my amazing fiancé (I did have to pester him loads to do it for me though)

So now I’ve got that little bit out of the way, today I thought we could chat about one of the things I HATE most in YA books, and that is girl on girl hate. SERIOUSLY, the amount of YA (I’d go more so for contemporary than fantasy) that has a lot of girl hate in it crazy. Real life isn’t always like that?? Yet in so many YA books I feel like it is used constantly in them 🙄🙄!!!

I just don’t understand why there is so much girl on girl hate? Surely YA women should be supporting each other in books not automatically creating some sort of petty squabbling relationship? It’s usually the same sort of thing, one would be the popular girl the other one not so much, or it would be something to do with them both liking the same guy? I want to see SO MUCH MORE amazing female friendships in YA books.

I can name SO MANY guy friendships in YA books (take the raven boys for example? or the darker shade of magic series??) Sadly, I can’t mention that many female friendships, not the ones that hated each other but are now friends but ones that are friends all the way through and it’s such a shame.

Basically, I just want to see some healthy girl friendships, girls supporting girls (think moxie), don’t get me wrong I love some of the friendships from books that I have listed above but I long for some awesome female friendships.

(PLEASE RECOMMEND ME SOME AWESOME FEMALE FRIENDSHIPS BOOKS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW)

What do you think? Are you fed up of seeing a lack of female friendships in YA books?
Or are you the opposite and came name me some AWESOME recommendations below!!!??

so i’m going on hiatus!!??

NOT FOREVER DON’T WORRY!

but i’ve decided i need some time for myself, my nan passed away on valentines day and her funeral is this month so i’m still a little all over the place?

then there is the lack of motivation i’ve been having recently?
i think i’m in a slump to rival all slumps, i don’t know what i want to blog about, what i want to read, i can’t even decided what i want to watch on tv which is very unlike me!!

so for now, i thinks it’s time for me to say goodbye untill i’m ready to come back, i’m not sure when that will be but i’ll still be active on goodreads so you can follow me on there to keep updated with what i’m reading/doing!

my head just isn’t in the best place right now so i’m going to concentrate on me and making myself feel like who i am again and surround myself with the people i love dearly 🙂

so for now, this is a see you later!! 🙂
