Hey guys! I am really excited to be doing this list. I made a list of my favorite reads of 2017 which you can find here. I always really enjoy seeing the books people love and the books people disliked. Since I haven’t made a list of books I was disappointed with I thought I would before it was too late.
For this list I decided to put books I was really looking forward to reading that I finally read and dislikes. Also I decided I would include books that I only gave one star.
I am sorry if books you guys liked are on here. Some of these just did’t do it for me.
Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Disappointing Books of 2017”
Hey guys! I am so excited for another week of Down The TBR Hole. This is a post I really enjoy doing. I have so many books on my TBR so it’s always nice to do. Plus I randomly find out about books I added to my TBR years ago and forgot about. Last week ended up being really good. I got rid of 4 books. I can’t wait to see what this week brings. Let’s go!
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #19”
Hey guys! It’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday. It’s been a little while since I did one of these. I’m very excited for this week’s topic. I decided for this topic, I’m going to talk about books I’ve recently read and what made me decide to pick them up.
The topic is : Books You’ve Read Because of Booktube/Blogging/etc. –Discuss the books you’ve picked up because you’ve heard of them in the online book community or platform you use. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday”
Hey guys so I gotta admit for a little while during this month I was in a bit of a slump. There were a couple books I read and I didn’t end up enjoying as much as I wanted. Things have also been really busy because I started a new job so I don’t have much time to read but I’ve been trying to get in reading time whenever I can. I also went to Book Con in June which ended up being a lot of fun. I also got some books from there that I can’t wait to read. So let’s dive into the books I read for the month!

A Monster Calls By Patrick Ness
Goodreads Synopsis: The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.
But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…
This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
It wants the truth Continue reading “Book Review: A Monster Calls”
