What should I read next?

Hey guys didn’t really know what to post, I just finished “The loneliest girl in the universe” ( I will put up a review soon) and I don’t know what to read next so I’m writing this to hopefully get some inspiration.

So I’m just gonna put list some of the books that I might feel like reading with their synopsis.

  1. The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro

The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited  Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. There’s a tense energy from the moment they meet, but when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances,  Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance.They are being framed for murder. *Synopsis for the first book A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE

I read the first book in this series and loved it. Then i listened to the second book and didn’t love it as much. I got my friend into this book and now she says that i have to read it because its amazing and to be quite frank i do want to read it.

2. The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R Pan

Image result for the astonishing color of afterLeigh Chen Sanders is absolutely certain about one thing: When her mother died by suicide, she turned into a bird.
Leigh, who is half Asian and half white, travels to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. There, she is determined to find her mother, the bird. In her search, she winds up chasing after ghosts, uncovering family secrets, and forging a new relationship with her grandparents. And as she grieves, she must try to reconcile the fact that on the same day she kissed her best friend and longtime secret crush, Axel, her mother was taking her own life.

I have heard amazing reviews for this book and it sounds amazing. I originally say a review on A CLOCKWORK READER channel. I really want to read this book but it’s really long and I don’t have so much time now a days.

3. The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

Image result for the wicker kingWhen August learns that his best friend, Jack, shows signs of degenerative hallucinatory disorder, he is determined to help Jack cope. Jack’s vivid and long-term visions take the form of an elaborate fantasy world layered over our own—a world ruled by the Wicker King. As Jack leads them on a quest to fulfill a dark prophecy in this alternate world, even August begins to question what is real or notNo one expects a princess to be brutal. 

August and Jack struggle to keep afloat as they teeter between fantasy and their own emotions. In the end, each must choose his own truth

I have been wanting to read this book for over a year and I haven’t picked it up. It sound so amazing and PAPERFURY loves this book and the review’s for this book all sound so amazing.

4. And I Darken By Kiersten White

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. An unseen sword hovering over their every move. Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. When they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion. But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty.

This book sounds so amazing. I love historical fiction. But I’m debating whether I should read it because its fantasy and im not really in a fantasy mood at the moment


So this is the end of the wierd post. I think I might end up reading The wicker King but I’m not sure. If you have any opinion on what I should read next, in this list or not comment down below.

Happy Reading

Audiobooks

Audiobooks do you like them yes? or no?

Personally yes I love audiobooks , I think that they are a great way to get into more books that you don’t own or just don’t feel like physically reading . Some people don’t like audiobooks because of the  narration or because of the price. True these are all valid points but for the narrators…yes there are bad narrators. But most of them are pretty good but some are 100% for sure  better than others.

For the price issue I actually think this is a big problem because not every library has audiobooks. You can either get them though your local library with an app called Overdrive, If you just want to try audiobooks you can always get free trials with Audible, Scribd and I think Ibooks. I’ve tried all of these options and I think Scribd is  the best for me, It offers free ebooks and free audiobooks for only 11$ a month. Which is pretty cheap for audiobooks.

How did I get into Audiobooks?

Thats actually a funny story cause my friend had been listening to audiobooks for the longest of time but I never really tought about it myself until 2 years later when I started Bookstagram and I saw all these people listening to audiobooks and it gave me the idea to start listening to them. So I asked around and found a few apps and now I listen to audiobooks almost every day.


BEST AUDIOBOOKS

  1. Harry Potter

HarryImage result for harry potter audiobooky Potter is actually the first audiobook I ever listened too. I hadn’t read the series in a looonggg time and I didn’t own the books so I came up with this.

 

The narrator for this book is amazing he expresses all the characters beautify really recommend this audiobook. 5/5

 


 

2.  Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

download (7)

 

I really liked this book. I had just seen it in one of my favourite booktubers video recommending it, and I saw it so like why not? Well I loved it also it had great LGBTQ+ representation which is always a bonus

5/5 Love the narration totally recommend.

 

 

 


3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

download (6)

 

I’m currently reading this book and I’m loving the audiobook. I was getting a bit bored with the book so I tried this and loved it.

It’s the same narrator as HP so just check out his stuff (Jim Dale). I love the flair of magic in the story and the whimsical-ness. 5/5


 

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater

download (8)

I Love this series I find its so cute but love the paranormal theme going on. I only read this book. I have to read the rest of the series but still love it.

Many people have different opinions on this audiobook. Cause its spoken with a southern accent wich I love cause its real and that’s wear it takes place. At first I didn’t really like it but In in the end I loved this audiobook. 4/5

 

 


 

Well thats my opinion on audiobooks what’s yours?

Top 4 Tuesday

TOP FOUR BOOKS THAT MADE ME CRY

Todays post is all about emotional books.

Do you cry in books??

YES. I used to never cry but then I started reading all these really sad books and now I’ll cry 50% of time. Sometimes I cry not necessarily in sad books but joyful ones. Anyway today for Top 5 Tuesday I’m gonna tell you guys the top five books that made me cry.

  1. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

Related imageBooksandbabbles

This book made me cry soooo much. If you haven’t read this book….READ IT. Its tells an amazing story about racism, racial profiling, criminal injustice, and just what society has become. So in summary just GO BUY IT! no but seriously…go buy it. It’s actually is turning into a movie and it comes out Oct.19 (I’m pretty excited). Anyway this book was so emotional and it just shows everything she had to go through, I can’t say more (for spoilers) but I was crying a lot while reading this.

2. Eliza and her monsters by Francesca ZappiaImage result for eliza and her monsters

I love this book. Francesca Zappia is one of my all time favourite authors and I love her books. I really recommend her. This story is about Eliza who has anxiety and writes a very popular web comic called Monstrous Sea but nobody knows that she writes them and much prefers the online world. Until one day a guy called Wallace comes to her school and turns out to be a fanfiction writer for her comic. They slowly become friends and she breaks out of her shell until one day her secret is shared with the world and everything begins to fall apart. This story is centered around anxiety and how she deals with it. I have anxiety and this book really came to me when I needed it. I was left in tears at the end because I could  really relate to what she was feeling.  The ending is not particularly sad but I was crying a lot while reading it.

3. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

Related image                -paperfury

I’m actually currently reading this book and i love it. It’s about two teens who lost someone dear to them start writing letters. It all happens when Juliette (one of the main protagonist) writes a letter to her dead mom, Declan finds it, reads it and responds. They then star talking to each other through letters and email. I’m not done the book so I can’t say more but it’s a very sad book (in my opinion) and amazingly written. I cried cause you can feel the grief the two of them are carrying and if you’ve ever lost a family member then you can relate

4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling

I’m sure a lot of you have read Harry Potter and if you haven’t well that’s okay there is still time. but this book is incredible sad.

*SPOLIER WARNING FOR HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS*


This book was so sad I cried so much. My favourite characters in the whole Harry POtter series where the weasly twins and then fred diedddd!!!! I was so sad. Also Dolby died which was just cruel (#Dobbywillalwaysbeafreeelf), then Lupin deid, so did Tonks 😭😭 and Moody. UGH ITS JUST SO SADDDDD 😭😭


*SPOILERS OVER*

SO yeah that is one of the saddest books every so many good characters that passed away.


SO those wear my top 4 saddest books. THere are others and they are not in order but I hope you liked my post. What is the saddest book you have ever read?? Let me know in the comments.

Image result for rule by ellen goodlett

This a young-adult fantasy/mystery series based around sisterhood and kingdoms, it’s giving me a bit of a Agatha Christie vibe which im totally down for cause I love mystery. I wont post the whole summary here but you can always go check it out on goodreads.

3. Wildcard by Marie Lu

OH.MY.GOD. I’m really excited for this book, I actually just read Warcross and it blew my mind. I do have to say that it was a bit predictable but the whole concept was amazing. Again I wont put the synopsis for spoilers. But this a science-fiction/virtual-reality book and if you like those genres the I really think you should read it.

4. Vengeance by Victoria Schwab

Image result for vengeance by victoria schwab bookstagram

AFGMHDMHTDMRM!!! I cannot wait for this book to be released, I’m literally counting down the days (16-17 days left) btw (*depends when i post this). Sadly they didn’t give out any ARCs for Vengeance so I couldn’t find a picture but this is the first book, Vicious which if you haven’t read you should go read it. NoW. Go to your closest bookstore buy the book and read it!!!! Again I wont say the synopsis but its a adult-paranormal-fantasy. Also if you have read any of Victoria Schwab books please let me know in the comments.

So those are all my September releases if you have a book that you’re excited for , that  that I didn’t put on my list and comes out in September please let me know in the comments or if there’s any new releases that come out later that you’re excited for, also leave me a comment down below.

My favourite trilogies

Today’s post is all about trilogies


I think when it comes to trilogies either you like or you don’t. I personally like them, If the authors plans them correctly  they can be great  but if they drag on the plot or aren’t interesting then they kinda suck. I like trilogies because they’re longer then duology’s but you don’t have to go to the trouble to reading a whole series of 4+ books.

I have to say I don’t own that many trilogies and my favourites have to be…

  1. Ace of Shades (5/5)
  2. Truly Devious (5/5)
  3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (4.5/5)
  4. Illuminae (4/5)
  5. The Grisha Trilogy (4/5)
  6. Cinder (3.5/5)

I haven’t finish all  three books in most of these but that’s because most of them are only gonna be out in 2019. But I highly recommend them especially “Ace of Shades” and “Truly Devious” they are both amazing books that i highly reccomend!!!

I havent read a lot of trilogy’s but I do have a lot of them on my tbr, here are my top five…

  1. Daughter of smoke and bone; I’ve heard about this book everywhere and I really want to read it
  2. And I darken; I have been dYiNg to read this series its historical fiction which is one of my favourite genres so i already  think im gonna love it.
  3. Divergent; Ok yes I havent read this series and everyone tells me i need to read it and i KNOW but i just keep forgetting hopefully i’ll read it soon
  4. Three dark crown; So I actually have this book , I bought it a long time ago and it’s just always there staring at me but of course I get distracted with other books and never pick it up.
  5. Legend; This is a trilogy is by Marie lu I have read her most recent books (warcross etc.) and i found it really interesting.

So  those are my Top 6 trilogy’s and Top 5 trilogys on my tbr. As I said before i haven’t read lots of trilogys but that’s what I thought of them. I hope you guys like this post. If you have ay post suggestions please let me know.

TBR

My September TBR

Hey guys so September started this Sunday so I thought I’d tell you guys about my September TBR (to-be-read)


For this month I have quite a small TBR

  1. Sea witch by Sarah Henning
  2. The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R Pan
  3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  4. Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
  5. The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
  6. The Last of August (audiobook) by brittany Cavallaro
  7. Letters to the Lost (e-book) Brigid Kemmerer

Blog post ideas.jpeg

Ok so some of you might be thinking that 7 books is not a small tbr. Well, that’s true but when it comes to choosing my  TBR  for the month , I’m always  kinda stuck because im a mood reader. If you don’t know what that means basically I’ll be reading a book and I have 50 pages left so I pick my next read. Lets say I decide to read some Fantasy , the following  day I’ll finish the book that I was reading but because of whatever reason I suddenly don’t feel like reading fantasy , I want to read fiction so I keep changing books. That’s why i need a TBR with options so that I don’t choose something else and totally get off track.

Anyway I’ve heard great reviews for these books so I really hope i like them. So that’s my September tbr whats on yours? let me know down in the comments

Happy Reading
