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!

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!

The Netgalley Book Tag

Negalley Header.png

RULES
¬ Link back to the tag’s creator: Kourtni at Kourtni Reads
¬ Thank and link back to the person who tagged you: I wasn’t tagged but got this from Mel @ Mel To The Any
¬ Answer the questions the best you can. If you don’t use NetGalley, you can substitute other sites or places where you get books!
¬ Tag a few people to do this too!


AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?

Most the stuff I request on Netgalley is Thrillers. So I’ll usually go for authors I know. Ruth Ware has become an author I’ll always request on Netgalley. Also Riley Sager has become an auto-request author.


REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?

I always go for thrillers. So I’ll go for books I see people are talking about and said they said they really enjoyed. I also will request books from authors I’ve read from before and really enjoyed. Sometimes I’ll request books if I hear a friend talk about it.


FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?

Netgalley Ratio
I don’t review every book I read. I do for Netgalley. I want to work on getting better at doing more reviews though. I usually review books that I feel I have a lot of thoughts on. I will do this with books I like and books I don’t like. I usually don’t do DNF reviews.


BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?

I would like a badge dealing with genres I read. I would like to know how many different genres I’ve read and reviewed. I think that would be really fun.


WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?

Lock Every Door
Top of my list is Lock Every Door By Riley Sager. I am so excited for this book! It is on Netgalley right now. I did end up requesting it but the publisher said right now those copies are only for journalists. She did say if I do have a book blog I could possibly get a copy close to publication. So hopefully that ends up happening. *Fingers crossed*


2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK THAT YOU RECEIVED AS AN ARC THAT YOU REVIEWED? IF YOU’VE NEVER RECEIVED AN ARC, WHAT’S THE LAST BOOK YOU REVIEWED?

King of Fools

King of Fools By Amanda Foody is the last book I received. I have not read it yet. It is part of my March TBR.

My Squirrel Days

My Squirrel Days By Ellie Kemper is the last arc I just read and reviewed that I got from Netgalley.

Anyone who uses Netgalley! I would like to see you do this tag.

My March TBR

Hey guys! So it’s been a little while since I posted a TBR for the month. I wanted to start doing this more often. I have been making these but I haven’t been sticking to them as well as I would like. Plus sometimes I just get in the mood to read a certain book and decide to pick that one up. This month I’m trying to read books I’ve been meaning to read. It may change but for now I’m pretty sure most of these will be read. So now let’s dive in to see what those books are!
