I kind of reached my 1-year blogiversary?!! | Spotlight Saturday #4 (February 20th)

Helloooooo! It’s the weekend once again (THANK GOD) and it’s also a Saturday, so I’ve decided to participate once again in Spotlight Saturday! I hadn’t been anticipating the fact that I would leave such a long time in between my last Spotlight Saturday (back in January, I think) but I guess it happened anyway. Better late than never, am I right?!

Spotlight Saturday is a meme hosted by Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner. Here’s the official blurb from it on her blog:

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner [aka, moi], dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.

Spotlighted Moment 2

Okay, so as you can probably understand from the title of this post, I REACHED MY 1-YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!! Well, kind of. I mean, yes I did indeed reach it, according to WordPress—I honestly can’t believe it’s already been a year!!—but I’ve decided it’s more of a kind-of blogiversary because it’s the date I created this blog—I didn’t actually start posting anything until near the end of March. Hence it’s my kind-of blogiversary. BUT STILL. 1 YEAR. I’m kind of in a state of shock?!! That I actually managed to keep this blog up for so long?? Especially since it did NOT feel like a year has passed, honestly.

I will actually be doing a giveaway sometime in March though, in celebration of my blogiversary as well as my own birthday! Two in one, I guess, haha. So keep an eye out for that! Technically my blog did start in March, so it’s totally justified—and my birthday, well, it happens to be around the same time (March 24th). My first post was, like, in March 11th? And then I think I took a 9-day hiatus or something and posted again on March 20th. XD So. Kind of confusing, but point is; look forward to a birthday and blogiversary giveaway coming sometime this March! ❤ My gift to you. 😉

But thank you so much for supporting me this past year! Even if you’re new here. I’m going to keep repeating the same thing, to be honest. I can’t believe a year has passed already! My blog and I have grown so much within that time… It seems like so much less, and I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for all of you, so THANK YOU. *Brings out confetti and chocolate and cake and party hats*

Spotlighted Blogger 2

As in last week’s Spotlight Saturday, I’m going to be spotlighting a few bloggers I’ve known for a while, as well as a few that I recently started talking to or would like to know better—because #BLOGGERLOVE!! 😀 Let’s do this.

Oldies, but lovelies (LOLLL sounds weird but you know what I mean)

Michelle’s blog is one I’ve been following for a LONG time—and her posts never get old. This girl’s blog is just amazing! (Read: Go check out her blog NOW.) I love reading her posts! 🙂

Another wonderful blog, Poulami posts insightful reviews of a variety of books, and they’re great to read! She also has many other entertaining posts. Go show her some love! ❤

I’ve been following Raven’s blog for a while now! I’m always envious at how much she keeps up with her reviews, haha. XD That’s something I’m still working on, oops! Her blog is filled with all sorts of great posts. 😀

Kat’s blog is filled with a variety of posts, and I love it! ❤ From TV, to books to tags to everything else, her blog is always lots of fun to surf around.

Blogs I’ve Discovered Recently or Want to Get to Know More…

Isabella is a more recent blogger friend I’ve discovered on the blogosphere and she is absolutely lovely! (She loves Harry Potter. And Percy Jackson. Enough said. :P)

I’m not sure when I found Anna and her blog—but I’m so glad I did! Anna is such a friendly person and her blog is wonderful. Plus, we seem to have a similar taste in books so yay!

I’ve been following this blog for a long time??? But I’ve only recently gotten the chance to actually comment, because TOO MANY BLOGS AND TOO LITTLE TIME. Gah. But I’d love to get to know both Trang and Lashaan more!

I’ve actually been following Becca for a while (I think???) but only recently have I really talked to her. Her blog is absolutely lovely and I love it! She is also a very nice person, and I’d really love to talk to her more often. 😉

Spotlighted Blog Post 2

Spotlighted Book 2

Glass Sword

Soooo, I finished Glass Sword?? And it was quite the roller-coaster of emotions by the end of it—but I’m kind of disappointed to say that I was left indifferent for a large part of the story.. Not exactly sure what caused it? But, up till the 40-50% mark, I was just kind of reading about it all, not as emotionally connected or absorbed as I would’ve liked to be. Indifferent at the beginning, intense at the end… overall a good read I suppose.

Spotlighted App 2

Ehhhh sorry, nothing for this one this week! Heheh I’m dreadfully uncreative when it comes to spotlighting apps…

Spotlighted Song 2

I’ve been listening a lot of Lindsey Stirling lately (seriously, her music is amazing), so basically her whole Shatter Me album?! Her skill with the violin is astounding! You should definitely check out her channel here.

Spotlighted Quote 2

More Happy Than Not Quote

More Happy Than Not is one of my reads this week (though it’s on pause as I started Gathering Darkness, heheheh..) so I thought it would be a good fit to have a quote from it this week! And I haven’t reached this quote yet, but this is such a lovely one. ❤


So that’s it for this week’s Spotlight Saturday! Once again, thank you so much for being with me on my blogging journey as it hits one year (I honestly still can’t believe it), make sure to look forward to a giveaway sometime this March! 😀 Unfortunately it won’t be of chocolate, but books are better, soooo you’re welcome. In advance. If you win. Ah, whatever. Point is, thank you!! Also, chocolate is delicious. That all made no sense whatsoever. Moving on, I hope you all check out the blogs and posts I mentioned above! ‘Cause they really are amazing. ❤ Have any of you read Glass Sword?? What did you think of it?

I hope you guys are all having an amazing Saturday!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

I’m reading Glass Sword! So far it’s okay. | WWW Wednesday #41 (February 17th)

It’s Wednesday again! And so here I am with, of course, a WWW Wednesday post! It was another, busy, tiring week, but thankfully I had some extra time to catch up on some reading—yay!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where we answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

WWW Wednesday

Currently Reading

I started Glass Sword a few days ago, I think? I haven’t gotten the chance to read it that often though, so I haven’t made as much progress as I would’ve liked, haha. So far it’s okay?? I mean, nothing note-worthy to say other than the fact that I think I’m suddenly a lot more indifferent to the characters.. that’s probably not a good thing. :/ But still, off to a good start!

I also started More Happy Than Not, though I haven’t made much progress with it. I’m literally, only like, 10% through?? But I can’t wait to read more of it! I’m thinking though I might have to put it either this or Glass Sword on pause while I finish one or the other..

Recently Finished

Yes, I finally hopped aboard the Stephanie Perkins train! Well, I’m making my way, at least. I managed to finish Anna and the French Kiss quite quickly, and I really enjoyed it! I recently wrote my review on it too, which you can check out for a more detailed version of my thoughts here.

Not If I See You First actually went waaay past my expectations! I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting, other than the fact that I hoped it would turn out to be good since it sounded interesting. XD But it was such an entertaining read! I hadn’t read many (if at all) books from the perspective of a blind person, and Not if I See You First was written so wonderfully in that aspect. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to write up my review soon!

Read Next

Omg I swear I’m actually going to at least START Wolf by Wolf this week. I WILL. I swear, everyone is telling me to read this book and I see so many references to it—I can’t resist! I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet, to be honest. Maybe because fear of disappointment? Probably. But I shall be brave and I will pick this up as soon as I finish the books I’m currently reading! Lol.

So many people are squealing about the last book in the Anna and the French Kiss series, Isla and the Happily Ever After, that I can’t help but want to get to it quickly, which means reading the next book! Plus I have heard great things about Lola and the Boy Next Door, and am eager to continue with another Stephanie Perkins book.

The Falling Kingdoms read-along is still going on, and I believe we are due to start the third book, Gathering Darkness.. today! We have to have it finished by March 3rd, I think, so that’s plenty of time. I do want to read it soon though! I’ve heard that things get better in this one in comparison to the first two, so… #hopeful (Though the first two weren’t that bad, mind you.)

The sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic is being released this month, and I’ve been waiting FOREVER to actually pick this up (I’ve been telling myself that I would for so long!) so maybe putting it on the read next this week might push me to pick it up. I don’t know what has been stopping me, really. Maybe fear of disappointment? Oh well. Fingers crossed I’ll pick it up this time!


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! I managed to finish 2 books, and I really enjoyed them both.. so YAY! Seriously though, they were really good. I don’t know which book I should focus more on: Glass Sword or More Happy Than Not?? And for my next reads, I really want to read… um, all of them??! They all seem soo good! But I think I’ll be prioritizing Wolf by Wolf or Gathering Darkness first.
So, any thoughts, fangirling, opinions? Which book should I read after I finish the ones I’m currently reading? Have you read Glass Sword? Feel free to leave your thoughts down below, I always love a good chat. Seriously, I do. I probably talk more than I should all the time sometimes. Like now.
Happy Wednesday! ❤

Until the Next Meal, Analee

I read Passenger! And a couple of other books. | WWW Wednesday #40 (February 10th)

Hola, mi amigos! Sorry, that just came out. But yes, hello, hola, no matter which language, you get the point! I hope you guys are all enjoying your Wednesday morning—right now mine is composed of me being more than half asleep and having some vague notions of things I should be doing… But details, details. It’s time for WWW Wednesday, so let’s get to it!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where we answer the following questions:

What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Not if I See You First

I literally just started Not If I See You First this morning, (soooo near the time of which this post is being written) but so far it’s off to an okay start! I’m withholding major judgement until I read more of it, of course.

Recently Finished

I recently finished Rebel Spring as part of a read-along, anndddd… I still don’t know what exactly I think of it. I know, I know! I finished this, what, 6 days ago? But.. my feelings are kind of conflicted. I think I liked it?? But it had its downsides. Right now I think my rating would be in the 3-3.5 star range… I have to admit I was expecting more! But still, decent.

Tonight the Streets Are Ours is such a fun book! It was such an unconventional love story in that it will most likely take you by surprise..! I know it did for me, but who knows. I loved the characters and the role they all played, not to mention the theme in general. Overall this was a lovely book!

And of course, as declared in my title, I finally picked up Passenger! Remember how I was wary of reading it due to potential disappointment? Well, for one thing, I have to say I’m kind of glad I went into this with kind of lowered expectations, because I’m sure if I had went in with higher ones, I would’ve been a lot more disappointed. As such, Passenger wasn’t too bad, but it wasn’t 100% perfection, which is a shame because I so greatly enjoyed The Darkest Minds. Oh well.

Read Next

AGH I swear I will read Wolf by Wolf sometime this week! Or if not, the week after, but I WILL READ IT some time or another. I’ve been encountering tons of shrieking fangirling bloggers who are urging me to read this and so I hopefully will get around to it soon!

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard released yesterday, and although I don’t yet have a copy, I’m adding it to my read next this week because I do hope to read it some time! I might try to get it at my library, but I doubt they’ll have a copy so soon, so.. I don’t know yet if I want to buy it, though I might.

More Happy Than Not seems like such a good read!! It’s on my TBR for this month and I thought, what better time than now? So yeah, there’s that. Not sure how it’s gonna turn out, but.. I guess I’ll find out!

I added Anna and the French Kiss kind of suddenly, but I decided it would be a good read for this week, what with Valentine’s Day and everything. XD Plus I’ve been so late on catching up with the Stephanie Perkins train—and yes, I must admit I’m curious to see what’s the big deal with Etienne St. Clair!


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments; what books on here have you read? What did you think of Passenger, if you read it (and if you haven’t, do you want to read it?) OH AND which book on my read next should I read first? I MUST KNOW THESE THINGS. XD Also am I the only one half-asleep at, like, 7:50 AM? Whoops, looks like I read past my bedtime last night.. #noregrets
Alright, I’m craving some chocolate right now and my subconscious tells me I must go and get ready for school, so, happy reading!! Again, feel free to leave your thoughts below, I’m always eager for a chat! ❤

Books You’ll Want to Cozy Up With This Valentine’s Day! (Or any time you crave a romance, really.)

Another Valentine’s Day-themed post?? You’re asking. Why yes, I’m glad you’re so observant. (Hehe.) I apologize if you’re getting overwhelmed by the ooey-gooey and cheesy romance-related posts going on this week, I promise I won’t go too overboard with this one. With Valentine’s Day just a matter of days away, I’ve decided to give you all a list of books you’ll want to read for this Valentine’s Day! Or basically any time you crave an entertaining romance. *I am also linking this up with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a Valentine’s Day themed freebie… and it’s obvious what I chose. ;)* Let’s do this!

Books to Read this Valentine's Day


Sarah Dessen

Omgomgomg Sarah Dessen is so amazing. I’m not even exaggerating here! (Okay, maybe I am a little, but you get my point, right??) She has written so many wonderful contemporary books I can’t help but be in love. Here are some you should definitely try out:

  • The Truth About Forever: Omg I love this book so much.. I can’t even. This was definitely more on the sappier side, but it was so adorable and so full of things I loved. I know, could I be any more vague? (Probably.) Sorry, looks like you’ll just have to go read it, hehe.
  • Just Listen: I know I’m not alone when I say I love this book! (At least, I hope not.) Some people didn’t like this book, but I definitely still recommend you give this a try if you’re up for a contemporary. Most likely it’ll be worth it!
  • This Lullaby: Ahhhh such a lovely story! I loved this book and just… agh. I’m running out of words but seriously. This book was so much fun to read! I loved it. (Duh)

It was so hard to choose just 3! I mean, I could’ve chosen more, but then it would be even more difficult.. if that makes any sense. Bottom line is, just go read these pronto if you’re looking for sweet romances!

Kasie West

  • The Fill-In Boyfriend: SO ADORABLE omg. I know not everyone loved this book, but seriously, this book is so cute. I can’t really offer more other than aiolksfdhadfgnkldnfglaeg, but if you’re interested you can check out my review on it! Just go read this book. Now. Ahem.
  • The Distance Between Us: Ahah so much fun to read! ALSO MORE ADORABLENESS. The cover just screams it! Also it’s quite entertaining and soooo sweet. This is definitely a book I wouldn’t mind re-reading! Unfortunately I don’t have a review on it, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
  • On the Fence: You guys are probably getting tired of my vague, and common comments for these, but… THIS IS SO CUTE. Can you see how much I kind of love Kasie West?? They may not be for everybody, and they may not be the best works out there, but they’re entertaining, I’ll give you that much. Or maybe that’s just me?

Hehheh now that I look at this it’s clear that I basically have the same comment for each one, whoops probably should’ve left it with just one general comment…

Emery Lord

The Start of Me and You

The Start of Me and You: This is Emery Lord’s… sophmore novel? I think? I haven’t read her debut yet, but I definitely plan to seeing how this one was so adorable! Definitely also looking forward to her other upcoming novel, When We Collided.

Jenny Han

  • To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before duology: This duology is so adorable! I remember loving it when I first read it. Even if it’s not absolutely perfect, it’s still a super entertaining read!
  • Summer trilogy: This one, I’ll admit, I enjoyed a bit less than the above duology, but I find that it was still tolerable. And who knows, for some this may become a new contemporary favourite!

Rainbow Rowell

  • Fangirl: Omg if you haven’t read this book I highly suggest you go pick it up right away! It’s such an amazing book.
  • Eleanor & Park: Same goes for this one! However, I don’t recommend you read either this or the above if you’re not a fan of slower plots. But if you think you can endure it, definitely try it out!
  • Attachments: It’s a really sweet novel if any of you are interested! It’s not YA though, I believe it’s Adult??
  • Carry On: SIMON AND BAZ..! Of course there are other good parts to this but the romance in this is amazing! If you have time and commitment to spare, this is definitely a good choice.

Some other books you might want to check out…

All very wonderful books, I assure you!

Books on my TBR that are said to be perfect romance material

Anna, Lola, Isla

Anna and the French Kiss series by Stephanie Perkins

I’ve been hearing so many praises of this series! Apparently it’s an amazing contemporary series… I promise I’ll read it one day!

Books by Morgan Matson

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, Since You’ve Been Gone and Second Chance Summer have all been so hyped up! I can’t wait to read them (though I’m kind of scared, hehe). I do hope they don’t disappoint!

Books by Cammie McGovern

Say What You Will and A Step Toward Falling seem like such cute reads! I definitely hope to read them both sometime.

Books by Jessi Kirby

Golden and Things We Know by Heart are both I have on my TBR, for they seem like they could be really interesting! I’ve seen both positive and negative reviews for each—I’m hoping once I read the books myself, it will be towards the positive for me!

Books by Huntley Fitzpatrick

On Goodreads: My Life Next Door, What I Thought Was True, and The Boy Most Likely To

Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books seem so adorable! The perfect romance read, I think. Definitely want to read them one day!


And that’s all for this post! I hope you all enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday-inspired post about books to read this Valentine’s Day. ;D (Of course you guys did, right?) Now it’s your turn; what books on here have you not read? Which did you like? What books on my TBR should I read first? What other romance books do you think is perfect for Valentine’s Day? (I like and want recommendations. Please and thank you.) Tell me whatever thoughts you may have down below! And feel free to let me know what topic you chose for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

WWW Wednesday #39 (February 3rd)

So.. I have reading progress (Yay!) and since it’s a Wednesday, you all know what it means! Time for WWW Wednesday a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where we answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Alrighty, let’s get on with it!

WWW Wednesday

Currently Reading

The Falling Kingdoms read-along is continuing onwards with the reading of the second book, Rebel Spring, which I started late last night! Not too far into it (unfortunately there’s something my body needs called sleep and it attacked me while I read this book..) but I hope to read more of it soon!

Recently Finished

I’ll Give You the Sun was such an amazing book! The book was SO BEAUTIFUL to read and I’m so glad I picked it up. The story completely pulled me in by the end of the novel—and don’t get me started on the writing! ❤

For the Record was a super fun book, for the record. (Sorry, had to do that.) I know it wasn’t the most amazing book for several readers, but I found it to be pretty entertaining (although it’s not without flaws) and I read it within a day.. so victory!

And finally, I also managed to knock Truthwitch off my read next that I planned last week, so… another victory dance!! Let us ALL do the dances. XD (Though on second thought, let’s not ’cause I’d probably humiliate myself dancing…but dance like nobody’s watching, right? Fine fine, I’ll stop. I don’t even know half the things I’m saying here.)

ANYWAY. Back to Truthwitch. Loved it! It was quality entertainment, and at the final pages, I just couldn’t put it down. Like, seriously. I was up way past my bedtime reading this. But psshhh, who cares about sleep anyway, right? So glad I picked this up!

Read Next

Passenger and Tonight the Streets Are Ours are back on my list! I’m kind of weary right now though towards Passenger..? Kind of? I don’t know, Truthwitch was soo good, and I really don’t want to set myself up towards disappointment since I’m hoping Passenger will be just as good. But what if it isn’t?? I’d throw a tantrum and yell at the book gods for not obeying my commands be pretty sad (or mad..?). BUT. I shall probably read it anyway. Along with Tonight the Streets Are Ours because contemporary! In between killing and action, yes, romance and happiness. Very good. Diversifying genres, am I right? (Though we all know that I always happen to go back to books about killing and action anyway, but hushhhh.)

I’ve also added Wolf by Wolf because I’ve heard SO MUCH about this one and have been meaning to read it…also because it’s set in Hitler’s time, so.. Coolness? And also just because. So yeah. Fingers crossed!

Also kind of the same situation for Not If I See You First apart from the fact that I have it on my ereader, instead of a physical copy (so.. CONVENIENCE!) as well as the fact that it seems like a good contemporary in between my heavy-duty fantasy reads. Don’t know if I’ll get around to reading it anytime soon, but OPTIMISM IS KEY. (You know, I could become an inspirational speaker one day… wait, nahhh I love my books and being an introvert too much for that, oops.)


Sorry for that more-than-usual rambling and weirdness! I hope you guys are all enjoying your Wednesdays (and hopefully my rambling wasn’t too embarrassing on my behalf); do let me know how your reading is going! Finding time? Not enough time? What did you think of Truthwitch?? What books on here have you read? Let us talk!! Because talking is good. (Except when you’re doing a test. Or something like that. Good lord, what is going on with me today?) Happy reading!! Hugs and lots of love from me. 🙂

Until the Next Meal, Analee

WWW Wednesday #38 (January 27th)

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another lovely Wednesday! (I don’t know if it’s actually a lovely Wednesday for you, but just go with it, okay? :P) It’s time once again for a WWW Wednesday post, a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where you answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Join in if you want! Let’s get on with it, shall we?

WWW Wednesday

Currently Reading

I started this… 4 days ago? 5 days? I don’t know, but I’m nearly finished it? Kind of? I’ve loved it so far! I didn’t get that much time to read it, unfortunately, or else I probably would’ve been able to finish it sooner, but any progress is good progress! I can’t wait to finish it. ❤

Recently Finished

Threats of Sky and Sea was an interesting read, one that I relatively enjoyed! I’d like to continue with the second novel, but I think I’m going to take a break from it for now. Both this and the other book I read, Falling Kingdoms, includes Elemental magic, so I’m still trying to figure out how much that affected my reading experience… LOL. Since I’m going to be continuing the Falling Kingdoms series soon, I don’t want to continue this one at the same time!

Falling Kingdoms was a pretty good read too! It sets up potential for the rest of the series and like I mentioned, this deals with elemental magic—which was executed pretty well, I might add. Seeing though how both Threats of Sky and Sea and this dealt with elemental magic, it felt a bit repetitive and I’m kind of conflicted as to whether I actually enjoyed that aspect. But overall, pretty satisfying!

Read Next

Passenger and Truthwitch are both on my list once again! I hope I’ll get the chance to read at least one of them, but I don’t know. Fingers crossed! Along with those I have Tonight the Streets Are Ours from last week as well, as an effort to not completely ignore the contemporary novels I’ve been meaning to read. 😉 For this same reasons I’ve also added For the Record, because why not? I have the ebook of it and I heard good things, so I’m hoping to give it a shot too.


 

Have any of you read I’ll Give You the Sun? Falling Kingdoms? I’d love to talk about them with you! 😀 How has your reading week been? Let me know whatever thoughts you may have below–and I know I say that often, but I mean it. LET’S DISCUSS!

Happy Wednesday! ❤

Where I share awesome bloggers and cool blog posts (and other stuff..?) | Spotlight Saturday #3 (January 23rd)

Yay for the weekend! It feels like it’s been forever where I actually get the whole day off from school and just life in general. *SIGH* So, it’s been a while since I did a Spotlight Saturday post, so I figured I might as well do it for this week! It’s a super fun meme hosted by Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner; here’s the official blurb of it from her blog!

Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner [aka, moi], dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.

SBlogger
Spotlighted Blogger

Blogging has been made such an incredible experience thanks to MANY amazing people, but for now, I’m just going to spotlight a few who I’ve admired and interacted with for a while—almost since the beginning of my blogging journey.

This girl has such an amazing blog. Her posts are always fun to read—not to mention I can almost always count on her recommendations. 😀 Her reviews, discussions, etc. are always so insightful. Go show her some love if you haven’t already!

Another lovely blogger, Becca is so inspiring! She’s genuine, funny, and her blog posts are always great. 😉 Her reviews are also definitely something I love to read! (And her graphics are pretty cool too!) Again, go and show her some love, because she deserves it.

Summer’s blog is one of the firsts I started following! One of my first memories of her and her blog is when we first talked about the VA series by Richelle Mead, LOL. We both came such a long way since then and I’m so glad to have met her!

I know I’m repeating things here—but what can I do if so many bloggers are so wonderful?! Bhramori is another fabulous blogger who has always supported me and her comments are so lovely! She’s such a fun person and great to talk to.

And, also, a few bloggers that I would absolutely LOVE to get to know more…

I actually had been following Tanaz for quite some time I think, but only recently really talked to her! And I’m sorry it took so long, because she and her blog are both absolutely lovely. ❤

I only recently discovered Brigitte’s blog, but I’m so glad I did! This blogger has been super nice to me and her blog seems great. So go ahead and show her some bookish love!

I’m not exactly sure for how long I’ve followed Prima over at her blog Panda Hearts Books, but one thing’s for sure: I definitely want to get to know her more! She is lovely and her blog is great. 🙂

Again, I don’t exactly know how long I’ve been following this blog, but this blog and its owner is fantastic. I’ve only recently started to actually talk to Cait, but she is SO NICE and her posts are always so much fun to read. (Also, her discussions are simply on point!)

A LOT more bloggers come to mind but alas, I cannot spotlight all of you (uhhh, let’s see, that would be around 500+? JK, but you know what I mean. :P) All of these bloggers are amazing though and I’m so glad I came across them in the blogging world.

SBlog Post
Spotlighted Blog Posts

Yay, blog posts! There are so many floating around the blogosphere these days, it’s hard to keep track, but here are some you should definitely check out!

SBook
Spotlighted Book

Guess what book I recently started?! Yep, I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. How could I not? After seeing SO MANY amazing reviews on this, I finally gave in and I’m reading it. 😀 And so far, I’m really liking it!! ❤

I'll Give You the Sun

SMoment
Spotlighted Moment

Huh. I’m not exactly sure about this one! Nothing exciting really happened, to be honest. Mostly just work, work and more work. Oh, and school. And work. And studying. -_- Although I was planning on going to watch The Fifth Wave yesterday (the day it released here in North America), unfortunately things got in the way. I hope to watch it soon though! It seems really good!

SApp
Spotlighted App

Same old, same old…nothing new for this one either! LOL I’m so boring sometimes. XD

SSong
Spotlighted Song

Hm.. I kind have been listening to I Know What You Did Last Summer lately? I think? I actually haven’t been sticking to one song, so…

SQuote
Spotlighted Quote

Quote

Am I the only one who thinks this quote basically represents half the characters in books? The right path for them is almost always not easy, lol. But this could just as well represent real life, yes? 🙂


So that’s it for this week’s Spotlight Saturday! My week hasn’t been that interesting, but oh well. What to do? This was still a lot of fun to do and write though—don’t forget to check out some of the spotlight bloggers and blog posts! I’m sure you won’t regret it. ❤ How have your lives been? Are any of you as bombarded with work as me? Let me know whatever thoughts you may have below. LET US TALK!

WWW Wednesday #37 (January 20th)

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday once again, and you know what that means! I’m trying to get back into the habit of CONSISTENTLY posting WWW Wednesdays, since, well, inconsistency bothers me to no end. XD Also because the thought of having to make another 4-week edition of this is not appealing whatsoever, lol.

By the way, WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where you answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Feel free to join in if you want!

Now, without further ado, my reading progress for this week!


Currently Reading

I’m still continuing my read of Threats of Sky and Sea on my Kobo. I haven’t been getting much time to read these days so right now I’m pretty satisfied with my pace (kind of). Hopefully I’ll be finishing this up soon!

I have Falling Kingdoms in hardcover (IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL) and I just started it a couple of days ago (as part of a read-along hosted by 5 bloggers—Jess, Drew, TamaraJosie, and Lillie). I’m not too far into it, but so far it’s off to a promising start!

Recently Finished

The Sword of Summer was a great read! I read it super quickly, in the span of a day or two. A fun mythology-filled book that I definitely recommend—you can check out my review of it here, if you need more convincing. (Unashamed self-promotion, right here, LOL.)

I finally found the motivation to continue (and finish) You Were Here. YAY. I had been ‘reading’ (basically half-heartedly flipping pages) this book for around two weeks, and I was really starting to become fed up with my attitude! Haha. But I did manage to finish it this week, and it wasn’t half as bad as I’d thought! It actually turned out to be pretty good, so I’m happy. 😉

Read Next

Passenger is on my list again, as I didn’t get to it last week—not sure yet whether I’ll actually be reading it this week though!

Truthwitch is another very hyped fantasy (?) read that I’ve been looking forward to reading! I bought a copy of it, and I’m hoping it’s worth it. 😉

To take a break from all the fantasy-type reads, I’ve added I’ll Give You the Sun and Tonight the Streets are Ours as possible reading material. I own a physical copy of the former, and an ebook of the latter. It’s doubtful that I’ll be able to get to them both, but oh well.


So that’s how my reading went for the week! Tell me; how has your reading been going? Which one of these books have you read or want to read? Let me know, in the comments! ❤

Happy Wednesday!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

WWW Wednesday #36 (December 23rd, December 30, January 6th & January 13th)

Seriously, I just can’t keep up with anything anymore. SOB. It’s been 4 weeks since I last participated in this. 4 WEEKS. Gah. Inconsistency is driving me crazy. Oh, and lack of time. ANOTHER SOB. (And angry stomping.)

So today, as you can see I have another collective edition of WWW Wednesday, for the past 4 weeks! I swear I hadn’t meant to miss so many WWWs, but…I guess it happened anyway! Oops!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words), where you answer the following questions:

This book was a very unique read! I have to admit it was kind of hard for me at first to judge whether I liked it or not, because it was different from what I’m normally used to.

Read Next

Basically all is the same as last week’s read next, save for the fact that I’ve decided to get rid of Invaded by Melissa Landers. Can’t really specify why, but I guess I kind of just lost interest..? Okay, fine, maybe not lost interest, but I’m just happy to leave it as is for now.

The Girlfriend Request was a pretty fast read, and a pretty cute one at that! Having said that, I must admit it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for me. There was a lot of raised eyebrows throughout the story, meaning there were just things that didn’t sit that well for me. But overall a cute contemporary!

The Rose Society… ah, I’m at a loss for words. Can I just say that it was incredibly stupid of me to not wait for the last book to be released?! Though at the same time I’m kind of scared… I just have this feeling that things aren’t going to end well—and I really hope I’m wrong. But The Rose Society was a great novel, I flew through it.

Read Next

Ten Thousand Skies Above You is definitely next on my list for this upcoming week! Along with that I have also added You Were Here, which is an e-ARC I received via Netgalley. And on a spur of the moment decision, I have also added Threats of Sky and Sea, which is a fantasy novel that seems like it’ll be amazing! This is more of a maybe option, but I guess I’ll see!

I finally read it! Ink and Bone had been on my read next for SO LONG but I finally read it; and I’m happy to say that I liked it! I had previously read negative reviews on it and it kind of made me prepare for the worst… but thankfully it ended up being entertaining. Especially since I kind of adored the characters…! They were complex and diverse, which is almost always a good combo.

I swear, I was literally speechless after finishing Ten Thousand Skies Above You. My memory occasionally blanked out when it came to remembering the events of the first book, so it did take me a while to get my bearings. Even then there still were parts where I was like, whaaaaa? When did that happen again? But nonetheless, I greatly enjoyed this read.

Read Next

I’ve decided to add Threats of Sky and Sea once again, because, why not? Passenger was released early this month, and it seems pretty interesting, so I’ve added that too, though chances are I won’t be reading it this week, unless I manage to get a copy of it. And finally I have added The Sword of Summer—I’ve been meaning to read this ever since it’s been released, hopefully I’ll get around to it.

January 13th

Currently Reading

Yep, I’m still reading You Were Here… and I’m not even near finishing it. I don’t know. For one thing, I haven’t been getting much time to read this, but apart from that, I’m not really feeling it. I don’t know, I can’t seem to muster up the level of enthusiasm I want, no, need, to actually get myself engaged in the book. And truthfully, I can’t decide yet whether it’s me or the book, either. Sigh. I’m planning on taking a break for now…Hopefully things will turn better later on!

Taking a break from You Were Here, I’ve decided to read Threats of Sky and Sea. It’s on my Kobo, which makes it convenient since these days I’m always either on the bus or at school.. both cases where I already have my hands full with heavy books. So far it’s pretty entertaining!

Recently Finished

SNIFFLE. No, more like SOB. I didn’t manage to finish anything this week, unfortunately. (My goal of 200 books read this year is seemingly becoming more and more impossible…)

Read Next

The Sword of Summer and Passenger are both on the list once again, but this week I’m also adding Falling Kingdoms because I’m going to start it January 18th, as part of a Falling Kingdoms series read-along (that’s being hosted by JosieJessDrewTamara and Lillie.) You can check out either or all of these blogs for the information post they all put up! If you could join, it would be great.


I haven’t been getting much time to read these past weeks, but I’m managing so far! How have your weeks been? Let me know what you think in the comments! Feel free to leave your link down below so I can come hop by your blog later. 😉 Have a great day, everyone!

I kind of (not-so-accidentally) splurged on buying books… | Spotlight Saturday #2 (December 26th–well, 27th)

Hello bookworms! Today I’m back with a Spotlight Saturday post, a meme hosted and created by the wonderful Josie @ Josie’s Book Corner. It’s kind of been a while since my first time doing this meme, but since I had so much fun with it last time and have some time on my hands before I leave for Boston, I decided to participate again this week. 🙂
SBlog Post

Unfortunately I haven’t been as active in the blogosphere this week and am unable to come up with one for this! (SO MANY BLOGS, SO LITTLE TIME.) I know there are plentiful blog posts out there that are amazing, and I’m so sorry that I’ve been missing out on them. :/

SBook

My spotlighted book this week is The Rose Society by Marie Lu! I recently got a copy of it, and so far I’m loving it!

The Rose Society

SMoment

So yesterday was Boxing Day. I’m not sure if this is something that every country has, or if this is something we have only in Canada, but basically every store put their products on sale..! I went with a couple of my friends to go shopping and, of course, I went crazy in the bookstore. I will be sharing my book haul soon, (hopefully) don’t worry. Some are recent releases, others not-so-recent. But they all seem amazing, so yay for tasty books! (But nay for my wallet…) I should probably get my book buying under control, but… booooooks! ❤ And sales. Sounds good to me!

Other than books, I also went all out on Bath and Body Works products. Seriously, the sales there were amazing!! I got a lot of new perfumes, lotions, some hand sanitizers (they are honestly so adorable), and some soap too. Most of you are probably not that interested in this kind of stuff, but the girly girl in me (who loves scented stuff) is kind of obsessed… LOL. Just kidding. Mostly. It’s a healthy obsession…!

It was kind of a busy day, but it was lots of fun—and hey, I got books and Bath & Body Works. I was happy!

SApp

Huh, apps…. Oh! Yes, I have a pick this time. I’ve recently been using the Reminders and Calendar apps a lot more—it really helps to keep things organized and planning things out, making lists, etc. Especially since I’ve been trying to schedule my day out a bit more, making sure I don’t miss anything I have to do, etc.

SSong

♪Hello from the other side…♪

Can you guess what song I’m spotlighting this week? Hello by Adele has been stuck in my head lately—when my head isn’t filled with Christmas songs, hehe.

Adele 25

SQuote

You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.

I’m not quite sure where this quote came from or who made it, but I love it all the same! It simply is such a great reminder of how dwelling on things that happened in the past won’t get you anywhere; it will simply hold you back.


So that’s it for this week’s Spotlight Saturday—even if it’s Sunday today. 😉 I’m going to be leaving for Boston soon, but luckily I had the chance to write this up! It was a lot of fun, I missed doing this! It was a good way to sum up my week too.

Tell me how your week has been! Also, do you have Boxing Day wherever you live in? I’d love to know, in the comments! ❤

It’s Christmas Eve! | Book Travelling Thursdays #2 (December 24th, 2015)

Hello! Can you believe it’s already Christmas Eve?! It’s been a MAJOR unfestive time here on my blog—I’M SO SORRY GUYS. I swear, everything has simply been flying by and I’ve hardly had the time to post anything! *SOB* But I’m back with a more Christmas-themed post with this week’s Book Travelling Thursday (a meme created by Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog)!

Book Traveling Thursday2How it Works:

1. Choose a book that fits with the theme of the week (which are listed per month on the Book Travelling Thursdays Goodreads group).

2. Include a short explanation as to why you chose the book.

3. Pick out different cover editions of your book: the original cover, the cover from your country, your favourite cover, and your least favourite cover.

So, this week’s topic || It’s Christmas Eve!! Choose a book that occurs in Christmas/Holiday season. 


There’s actually not a lot of books I could really think of for this one! I did consider several other books, but finally I’ve chosen to go with Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Although it may not be a favourite of everyone around, it was still a relatively good read, and it takes place during the holiday season… so let’s commence our judgement of its book covers!

Original Cover + Cover from my Country

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares

Yay, at least the original cover isn’t too painful to look at. As far as covers go, this one is a pretty decent one, no?

Favourite Covers

Okay, so I’m not 100% sure, but as far as I understand, the first cover is the cover from Australia! At first I wasn’t too sure about it, but as I continue to look at it, it’s growing on me! I don’t know, maybe I’m just being odd, but this cover seems to fit the story really well, and plus, I like the font they used for the title. 😉

Next up is the cover from England! This is another one that grew on me. The font, the color, and the design is all very simple and minimalist, but has a really good effect! I can’t be the only one who likes it, right…?

And lastly, we have another cover which I am assuming is from the U.S. (but I’m not completely sure). I love the font on this one! There’s just something about it that really clicks with me. The colors they used are also great; I wouldn’t mind having this cover on my shelf!

Least Favourite Covers

Boy, does this book have its fair share of ugly covers! I mean, some of these aren’t so bad, but they’re definitely not my favourites…

The first two covers are German covers, if I’m not mistaken. The first one might not have been that bad, but then there’s something about it that just doesn’t sit with me that well. The second one is definitely worse, though I can’t exactly pinpoint why..? DON’T QUESTION ME. Lol. But yeah. Germany, better amp up your covers next time!

The next cover would be Sweden‘s, as far as I know. And oh boy… must I explain myself on this one? I’m sorry, it just doesn’t look pretty. (Yes, that’s the first thing I note. XD) Whyyyyyyy.

After that… (unfortunately there’s a pretty long list of ugly covers for this book) we have the Romanian cover. If you’ve read the book, you know how unsuitable this cover is! It doesn’t have any hint of what this book is really about. WHY MUST THIS HAPPEN.

Can you guess what the next one is? It’s the… Russian cover! Not only are the faces on the cover completely unnecessary, it just doesn’t suit the book at all. And nope, it doesn’t look pretty to me either! The struggle is real—why can’t all book covers be universally beautiful?! Russia, why did you do this?

And lastly (though I bet there are a lot more I could’ve put here) we have the Spanish cover. To me, this basically is trying to imitate the style of the original cover—but failing drastically. And what’s up with the cartoon-ish character (Lily, I presume) at the side? Blech.


I hope you guys are all having a wonderful Christmas Eve! I’ve been a total Grinch on this blog as per Christmas posts are concerned, so I hope this at least partially makes up for it. 😉 Do let me know your thoughts on this book and/or its covers! Do you agree with me? Which cover is your favourite? Hugs, and Merry Christmas!! ❤

Until the Next Meal, Analee

WWW Wednesday #35 (December 16th…Well, 17th)

Hey everyone! I’ve been super busy this week, and unfortunately I hardly had the time to post! I was debating whether or not to skip this week’s WWW Wednesday, but I decided to do it, even though I’m late by a day. 😉

Feel free to join in on the meme (hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words) by answering the three questions below:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Currently Reading

This book is turning out to be much different than I expected, in a good way, though. While we’re at it, it’s quite different from other books as well, although I’m not quite sure whether that’s a good thing or not. But one thing’s for sure; it’s quite the insightful read!

Recently Finished

I finished The Young Elites a couple of days after my last WWW, I believe—and it was marvelous. A great start to a series that I know I will probably grow to love! Adelina’s character especially really stood out to me, and I had such an amazing time reading the book. ❤

I also managed to finally read The Weight of Feathers! Yay! *Brings out confetti* This book has been on my read next for quite some time, and I’m glad I got the chance to finally put it in the recently finished part of a WWW post. The Romeo and Juliet trope featured in this book really worked for the story, and I really enjoyed it!

Read Next

Surprise, surprise, Ink and Bone is back on the list! I will actually be trying to make a conscious effort this time and actually get around to reading this, I promise. Fingers crossed!

Invaded is another pick I had from last week, and I’ve decided to add it on again this week, even though it’s unlikely I’ll be reading it. For one, I don’t even have a copy of it yet! So, yeah, unlikely. But I’m still interested!

I am absolutely itching to read The Rose Society! I got a copy of it recently and I would’ve been gobbling it up immediately, if it weren’t for the fact that I’m trying really hard to finish my review of The Young Elites first…

Aaaaaaaand, last but not least, Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray is on my list, the sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You—AKA the books with the marvelously stunning covers. I mentioned in one of my recent tags, I believe, that reading this book was on my bucket list. Well, here’s hoping I’ll be crossing this item off soon!


Sorry I’m so late on this post guys, and for being such an absentee blogger. Fortunately, my winter break starts soon, which hopefully will mean more consistency and more time on my hands for blogging. 😉

Feel free to tell me how your reading has been going in the comments below! Or you can just say hi, I’m cool with that too. I’ve felt like I haven’t talked to you all in FOREVER, so I’d love any chance to say hello. LOL. ❤ I love you guys all, hugs!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

WWW Wednesday #34 (November 25, December 2nd & December 9th)

Hello everyone! I’ve missed WWW Wednesday the past couple of weeks, so I’ve decided to make a collective edition of WWW Wednesday this week to update my reading status! Because despite being MIA on the blog, I actually have been managing to find time to read in between my studies. So this week’s post is kind of going to be in a different format than usual, obviously because it’s going to be showing off 3 weeks (I think) worth of reading material. Fingers crossed it doesn’t become too confusing!

Feel free to join in on the meme (hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words) by answering the three questions below:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Winter proved to be a lengthy but worthwhile read! It was definitely a very well-written ending, and I was quite satisfied with it.

Court of Fives was not a planned read whatsoever, but as I got a copy of it from the library, I thought, why not? It too, proved to be a worthwhile read, and I can’t wait for the sequel—which unfortunately is being released next year. *Sigh*

Read Next

The same choices once again, with one new addition! Rebel Belle is another one of my library books and I am hoping to get around to it soon.

I finished the majority of Unspoken over the week of the 25th, and so I only had a little bit left when I finished it this week. I absolutely loved it! It is definitely one of the better endings of a series, and I had almost no complaints. Such a great book!

Despite the size of For Darkness Shows the Stars, I actually managed to finish this relatively quickly, if I recall correctly! It’s another one of my library books—as you can tell, I kind of went all out at the library—and it proved to be a great read. It wasn’t entirely what I expected in some aspects, but I really enjoyed it all the same.

I managed to finish Rebel Belle this week as well, which was a thoroughly entertaining read, despite the small little rough spots it had! This was my first Rachel Hawkins book, but I will definitely be reading more from her.

Read Next

The Weight of Feathers and Ink & Bone are selections on my read next once again—surprise, surprise—but I have also decided to add The Young Elites to the list on a spur-of-the-moment decision! It’s been on my shelf long enough.

December 9th

Currently Reading

So this week I am in the middle of reading The Young Elites! So far it’s really entertaining, but although I’m a bit more than half through it, it still somehow feels like I’m at the beginning? I don’t know, maybe it’s just me and my odd brain. But so far, me likey! 😉

Recently Finished

I finished The Dead House! It was a pretty entertaining read, though I wouldn’t say I found it to be as scary as some readers have found it to be… maybe that’s just me? It was a great book to read at night, though, for a little creepy story.

Alienated is another one of my library books, one that I hadn’t necessarily planned to finish… but somehow ended up reading and finishing anyway, Not that I regret reading it or anything. I really liked it, even if it might’ve not been necessarily the best written book out there. It’s a great romance novel with sci-fi elements, for those of you who are interested!

Read Next

The Weight of Feathers is the first book on my list this week! I will definitely be picking this up as soon as possible.

Ink and Bone is on my list again, although I’m not sure if I’ll be getting around to reading it…come on, you guys can’t say you’re surprised. I’ve been putting off reading this for too long already.

Invaded is the sequel to Alienated, which I finished reading this past week. I have yet to get a copy of Invaded, but I hope I’ll be able to get one soon!

And finally, I have added The Rose Society to my list as well! I don’t have a copy of this yet, because I’m planning on buying it (but haven’t gotten a chance yet) but I’m planning on reading it soon after I finish The Young Elites.


So, how has your week gone by? I’m surprised I actually managed to get this much reading done, or any reading at all, to be honest. I was absolutely swamped with schoolwork, but somehow I managed! And thankfully I am (so far) managing to blog a bit too. I’ve missed blogging so much! But you guys don’t need to hear all my gushing and apologies right now. XD What do you think of my reading choices? What are you reading this week? Let me know whatever thoughts you may have below, because I’d love to hear them! ❤ And as always, feel free to put your WWW down below. Happy Wednesday!

WWW Wednesday #33 (November 18th, 2015)

Hello everyone! I’m kind of late to the party with this week’s WWW Wednesday, as the day is basically over, but as this is kind of my little record of the books I’ve been reading (since I’ve been MIA on Goodreads), I decided to do it anyway!

Feel free to join in on the meme (hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words) by answering the three questions below:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Currently Reading

Winter

Unfortunately I started pretty late with this due to time reasons so I’m not too far into it, but I’m loving Winter so far! I really wish I didn’t have to take so much time on school-related things, but oh well. Can’t wait to read more of Winter and see what else is held in store for me!

Recently Finished

Surprisingly, I managed to finish A Madness So Discreet! Yay! I’m so glad I decided to read this, it was really worth the hype for me and it was a super good read! If any of you are on the fence about reading it, well, you have my recommendation. (Even if that doesn’t mean much to you… :P)

And I also finished Eternal this week! I didn’t think I’d be able to fit in both this and A Madness So Discreet this week, but I did so I’m glad about that! It was great re-reading Eternal.

Read Next

Now that I finished my re-read of Eternal, I’m ready to go ahead and finish off the trilogy with the long-awaited third book Unspoken! Aaaah I’m super excited!

I didn’t get to start The Weight of Feathers this week, but it’s on the list and I’m hoping I’ll be able to get to it soon!

The Dead House is also still on the list, and although I doubt I’ll be getting to this one, my fingers are crossed.

Surprise surprise, Ink and Bone is still on my list! I swear guys, I will read this. Someday…!


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! I know it’s pretty late, but feel free to link your WWW anyway because I’d still love to come check it out! ❤ Let me know any thoughts you may have down below!

Hugs and Happy reading!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

 

WWW Wednesday #32 (November 11th, 2015)

Hello bookworms! Can you guess what day it is today?? (If you guess Remembrance Day, then you aren’t wrong, but…) It’s Wednesday once again and that means it’s time for another… (Do I even need to tell you) WWW Wednesday!

Feel free to join in on the meme (hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words) by answering the three questions below:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Currently Reading

I’ve decided to start A Madness So Discreet this week seeing how it’s a library book and I want to make sure I have the time to finish it! I’m not too far into it yet (thanks, school) but it’s pretty good so far!

I’m still in the process of completing my re-read of Eternal, but I have my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to finish it this week! There’s not that much left of it.

Recently Finished

Library of Souls was a great read! I’ve kind of lost my touch with creepy stories (AKA I’ve become more of a scared-y cat) since the last time I read a creepy story was probably at the beginning of this year. XD So this turned out to be a really chilling read for me, and I loved it!

Cress was a last minute addition to my reading this week! I decided, since Winter is being released soon, I should re-read Cress so I have more of a clear view of everything that has happened. I would’ve re-read the whole series but I didn’t have the time. And re-reading Cress was, of course, an amazing experience. (AND NOW WINTER IS HERE YAYYYY!!!)

Read Next

I will definitely be reading Winter as soon as possible! I mean, come on guys. IT’S FINALLY HERE. *Dances around crazily* I’m hoping my recent habit (of reading newly released books a month or so later) will not intrude here.

Unspoken is the conclusion to the Shadow Falls After Dark series, and after I’m finished Eternal, I will definitely try to get to this. Equally sad and excited to read it! 😉

The Weight of Feathers, The Dead House, and, as usual, Ink And Bone are still on my read next, and although I don’t know if I’ll manage to get to these, I will certainly try! (But I think we all know it ain’t gonna happen this week…sadly.)


So that’s it for this week’s reading! Now it’s your turn to talk—though I know you guys would love it if I talked all the time—by telling me: What do you think, what you’re reading this week, and whatever thought you may have! (And don’t feel shy to stop by to say hello! <3) Also feel free to link your WWW posts as well, I’d love to come check them out.

Happy Wednesday, and for those of you in Canada, remember to wear your poppies!

Until the Next Meal, Analee
