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

I swear I meant to read these last year…but I didn’t | Top Ten Tuesday #29 (January 12th)

Hello! (It’s me.) Sorry, had to do that. But yes, hello everyone and welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! I seriously haven’t been able to find the time to literally do ANYTHING, but it’s time to break this pattern of no-posts-for-a-week, don’t you think? 😉 Anyway, 2015 was a great year for books…though I must confess, there are a lot of books I meant to read—-but didn’t. SO LET’S DO THIS.

1. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here

Patrick Ness, is, of course, fabulous which is why I have been anticipating the release of his newest book ever since I heard of it! And I swear, I meant to read it around the time of its release—or at least in 2015—but, unfortunately I didn’t. BUT I WILL. Yes, I definitely will. (HUSH even though that’s what I said last year…)

2. The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

The Sword of Summer

I absolutely devoured Rick Riordan’s previous series, Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus back when I first read them, and so I had really wanted to read The Sword of Summer as well, the first book in his newest series, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. But alas… I didn’t. SIGH.

3. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Not_bookcover

Since and before its release, I had been hearing glorious praises about this book! (There was even a cool book tag based on it made too!) It seems like the kind of contemporary that I would love to read, so I had been wanting to read it for, oh, you know, the whole year of 2015? But obviously I didn’t so I will definitely try to read it this year!

4. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Illuminae

If you guys have been around the book blogging community for, say, the past 2-4 months, I’d bet you know what I mean when I say this book blew up, literally EVERYWHERE. I’m only half-joking, hush. So color me curious, because (hopefully) all that hype can’t have been running on nothingness.. right?

5. Soundless by Richelle Mead

Soundless

Now, my expectations for this one is not that high, seeing how I’ve braced myself with the knowledge of bad reviews (LOL, that sounds so dramatic when I put it that way)—BUT, I still want to read it because, obviously, I want to see for myself how it is. 🙂 And as such, I had planned to read it last year, but didn’t get around to it. THIS YEAR. It shall happen.

6. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Aristotle & Dante_bookcover

Everyone seems to have read this book!! (Except me, SIGH.) I really can’t wait to read it though, it seems like it’ll be a great read! I’m starting to feel like a broken record, just replaying the same thing over and over again, but I WILL GET TO THIS. HOPEFULLY THIS YEAR, and not, you know, in the next century. If that’s even possible.

7. The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

The Beginning of Everything

After reading Robyn Schneider’s sophomore novel, Extraordinary Means, I really wanted to see how her debut turned out. I had a library copy of it and everything, but unfortunately I didn’t get around to it. It seems to be a good book though!

8. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade final for Irene

Along with Vicious (by the same author, but not the same series), A Darker Shade of Magic was really hyped in the more earlier months of 2015, (and even now, to be honest, especially with the release of the second book coming up this year). And I kept telling myself (and everyone else) that I would read it or Vicious sometime soon, but, as what seems to be the sad pattern, I didn’t get around to it. *Crawls into hole*

9. After You by Jojo Moyes

After You

I absolutely loved Me Before You, kind of unexpectedly seeing how I don’t venture much into adult fiction. But I did, and afterwards when I heard about After You, a kind of sequel to the first, I was really excited. I haven’t really read many reviews on it though, to be honest, so I’m not quite sure what to expect. Fingers crossed!

10. The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

The Witch Hunter_bookcover

Marketed as the Graceling meets Game of Thrones, The Witch Hunter had been on my TBR list ever since its release. I mean, I haven’t read the Game of Thrones, but I know enough to assume that this book will definitely be one heck of an adventure. Right? Not to mention the glowing reviews…Hopefully I’m not going to be let down. I honestly meant to read this so long ago, but, come on, you all know me by now. LOL.


Gah, this list feels so long! And this is all without counting ALLL the other books on my TBR…Yeah, seeing how that’s over 500, I doubt we want to go there. (I swear, if anyone is able to come up with a machine that stops time whenever I want to read, I WOULD LOVE YOU. Even if you were an axe murderer. :P) But still, for now, I’ll limit it to just trying to keep up with all these books! Here’s hoping I’ll be able to read these books this year.

Now it’s your turn! Tell me, which books on here have you not read either? WE CAN BE BOOKISHLY LONELY TOGETHER. (Because that totally makes sense.) And if you have read any of these, tell me your thoughts!! I’d love to know so I may be prepared for the future. 😉 Also, I’m curious—which one of these books do you find were hyped the most? Really, basically all of them were, so… TELL ME.

Happy Tuesday!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

WWW Wednesday #24 (September 16th, 2015)

Hello! Welcome to another WWW Wednesday, a meme formerly hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading and now hosted by Sam @Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do to join in is answer three questions:

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


Currently Reading

I am actually currently not reading anything. I know! For the first time in a looong time, it seems. I did read though, throughout the week (though not as much as usual) but currently I have nothing. Still unsure over what book to read next!

Recently Finished

More Than This by Patrick Ness was an incredible read; I really loved it! There’s just so much going for it, and it was a very emotional novel.

As for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews, I can’t really say the same, since I’m not exactly its biggest fan… I mean, it was okay, and a different take from the whole sickness theme in YA fiction for sure, but it just didn’t click with me. I’m hoping the movie is better! (Which is a pretty sad thought, when you think about it. I mean, the books are supposed to be better, you know? :P)

Review for Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts will be coming soon!

Read Next

I still have not gotten around to City of Fae by Pippa DeCosta; to be honest, unfortunately I’m starting to think I never will! I mean, I will read it, but it doesn’t seem like I’ll be reading it anytime soon. Hopefully this week?

Fire with Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian is the sequel to Burn For Burn which I have previously read near the end of August, if memory prevails. Burn For Burn did end with a cliffhanger that would usually be having me reaching for the second book asap, but for some reason I still haven’t gotten around to it.

Reawakened by Colleen Houck has still been left untouched! I really want to read this book, I honestly have no idea what has stopped me from picking this up way before. Fingers crossed I will read it this week!


How’s your reads going? What are you planning on reading next? What do you think I should read next? Let me know in the comments below—and link your WWW post if you have one! I will definitely check them out. ❤

Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!

I need your help!

Hello! This is going to be a quick post. I just really need your opinion on something! 🙂

As most of you know, I participate in several weekly memes; Top Ten Tuesday, Teaser Tuesday, WWW Wednesday, That’s What He Said Thursday and Friday Finds. I really enjoy participating in all of these, but I think they sometimes get in the way of reviewing and my schedule. Now, what I need your help with is: I have been debating whether or not to quit the TWHST meme. I do have lots of fun finding quotes from one of the special guys to his heroine, but… I don’t know. The other memes I really enjoy doing, and I don’t really feel like quitting those. Not that I want to quit TWHST, but… you see my dilemma here?

Which is why, I thought, why not ask you guys? Out of all the memes I currently participate in, which one do you think I should quit? Or, what I really mean is, which meme do you not care for as much? Should I quit TWHST? I’d consider it a huge favor if you commented what you think I should do below.

Thank you all so much!!!
