Blogmas Day 18: Netgalley Arcs I Need To Read #6

Hey guys! It’s time for another update on the Netgalley arcs I need to read. I ended up reading 11 this year which I feel is really good. I did try to make it a point to read some of the older ones I had on the list. I’m pretty sure the oldest one I had was from 2017 and I read that. So I’m very happy about that. I have requested some books. I’ve been trying really hard not to but sometimes I just can’t help myself. It’s hard when a book just sounds so good. Anyway let’s dive in to see what books I still need to read.

September Wrap-up

Hey guys! I am here with my September Wrap-up. I honestly have no clue where September went. I do feel September was a bit of a weird month for me. I made a bit of an ambitious TBR. Then when the time came to read I found myself not really interested in what I picked out. I also found myself not really wanting to read so I tried to resort to audiobooks. Overall I did find a couple new reads I liked so let’s dive in to see what books those were!

With no choice but to play, Enne and Levi are desperate to forge new alliances and bargain for their safety. But any misstep could turn deadly when a far more dangerous opponent appears on the board — one plucked straight from the city’s most gruesome legends. While Levi hides behind a mask of false promises, Enne is finally forced out from behind hers and as the game takes its final, vicious turn, these two must decide once and for all whether to be partners or enemies.

Because in a game for survival, there are no winners…

There are only monsters.

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2

Hey guys! I honestly can’t believe we are in the middle of June right now. I swear June 1st was just yesterday but we’re almost at the end and July is fast approaching. I can’t get over how quick this year is just flying by. It needs to slow down.

Anyway, I have seen this tag going around on youtube and saw some blogger friends post it as well so I thought I’d hop on board and do it. I honestly forgot that I did this last year but I’m excited to do it again! I feel 2019 has been a bit of a difficult reading year for me. I’ve read 38 books so far. I feel this has been a decent reading year. I’ve had some books really stand out and others I haven’t really enjoyed. I also just got out of a bit of a reading slump which I’m glad that’s over with. I do feel I’ve read some enjoyable reads this month so that makes me very happy. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2”

March & April Book Haul

Hey guys! It’s time for another book haul! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a haul. I have been trying to buy less books this year. I recently got rid of a bunch and then I realized I still had plenty that I haven’t read. So now I’m trying to get more books from the library. I think in the future I will post my library hauls because those are posts and videos I enjoy watching. I really only bought 2 of these books. The other ones were trades I ended up making with my friends. I am happy because these are all books I really wanted to read. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “March & April Book Haul”

Why I Need This Book: Well last year I read Ace of Shades and ended up falling in love with the series. It ended up being such a fun and exciting read. Well finally the sequel is out in a week and I can’t wait for you to read it. I was lucky enough to get an e-arc of it. It was really good. I am hoping to have a review for it up on Friday. So look out for that. Prepare for a wild ride.


Hot Dog GirlHot Dog Girl By Jennifer Dugan

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, LGBT, Romance
Pages: 320 pages
Release Date: April 30 2019
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Plot: Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:

* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

Jennifer Dugan’s sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love–and themselves–in unexpected people and unforgettable places.

Why I Need This Book: So this book was an automatic add to the TBR when I saw the cover. A girl dressed up as a giant hot dog, sign me up. Then I read the plot and it seems it takes place at an amusement park which I am always down for. This just sounds like a fun fluffy read. I am here for it.


Have you gotten to read these early? If so what are your thoughts on them? If not, are you guys interested in picking these books up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for them to come out!
