The TBR Tag

Today I’ll be doing a book tag inspired by every reader’s best friend and worst enemy: the TBR pile. For anyone who’s new to the book community, TBR stands for to-be-read.

The TBR Tag was originally created by Dana from DanaSquare and Rachel from A Perfection Called Books.

How do you keep track of your TBR? I used to create a TBR list in Microsoft Excel, but since 2015, I’ve been using Goodreads. Besides checking off books on the site, I like to print out my TBR and cross off what I’ve read.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook? All print. E-books just aren’t my thing.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? I’m definitely a mood reader, but I try to read my ARCs (advanced readers copies) before release date, and if one of my most anticipated releases has just come out (thinking back to May with A Court of Wings and Ruin), I pick it up almost immediately.

12810834.jpgA Book That’s Been on Your TBR The Longest: 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad—I think this has been on my list since 2015!

A Book You Recently Added to Your TBR: The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe 

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading: I do a pretty good job of making sure that there aren’t books on my TBR that I’m really not going to get to, but I’m going to go with The One We Fell in Love With by Paige Toon, mainly because it’s hard to find some of her books in the US, especially in my local library system.

An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu 29749090.jpg

A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You: The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan. I plan on reading The Sword of Summer soon, as the last book in the trilogy comes out in October.

A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends to You: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read: Solitaire by Alice Oseman. I loved Radio Silence, so I am excited to pick up her debut novel.

What book do you want to get off your TBR by the end of 2017? Share in the comments!

The End of Year Book Tag

I can’t believe that there’s less than one-hundred days left of 2017! I’ve been lucky enough to have some pretty cool experiences this year and still have a lot more to look forward to. I’ve read SO MANY GREAT BOOKS THIS YEAR and still have two and half months for more! I saw this tag featured on Alex of coffeeloving bookoholic‘s blog a few weeks back and I think it’s a great way to reflect on some of your reading goals for the rest of the year.

Q: Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

A: I don’t have any books in particular, as I just want to stay on top of my current reads amidst schoolwork and college life.

Q: Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

A: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Q: Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

A: Renegades by Marissa Meyer. As the first book in Marissa Meyer’s latest series gets closer and closer, the more excited I am for Renegades! I’m interested to read her take on superheroes and villainy.

Q: What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

A: The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard) by Rick Riordan, Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, and Bonfire by Krysten Ritter.

Q: Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?

I’m still not sure what my absolute favorite book of the year is yet (Warcross, Little Fires Everywhere, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean are among the top contenders), but I think They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera could be a contender.

Q:Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

In November, I want to start rereading the Throne of Glass series in anticipation of the last ToG book coming out next year. I plan on reading at least one ToG book per month, (which sadly means putting Tower of Dawn off a bit longer), as I’ve forgotten some of the smaller, yet important details of the story, so my reread will lead me into 2018.

What are some reading goals that you want to finish by the end of the year? Share in the comments!

The Versatile Blogger Award

Aren’t we in a bit of an awards season? While I’m not the biggest award show person, being that the only one that I’ve watched fully was the 2016 Tonys mostly (okay, completely) because of Hamilton, I am looking forward to this year’s Emmys mainly because of Master of None and Big Little Lies.

Speaking of awards, today I’ll be doing The Versatile Blogger Award. I was nominated by Ally from Ally Writes Things, and this award was created by Delphine from Delphine the Babbler. The Versatile Blogger Award lets you know a little bit more about your blogger.

IMG_4656.jpg

Get yourself a blogger who treats her books like how Rafiki treats newborn Simba.

Rules:

  • Give an air kiss and hug to your nominator and share their links with your followers
  • Nominate 10 bloggers that you admire and don’t forget to link
  • Let your nominees know you nominated them
  • Reveal 7 facts about yourself that hasn’t been acknowledged yet before

7 Things to Know about Haley:

1.I consider myself to be a pretty athletic person, even though I admit that I prefer to curl up in bed with a book over working out. My favorite sports include field hockey, swimming, and hockey, and I love playing softball and tennis with my family.

2.I have two dogs, both rescues, and they are two of my favorite things in the world. I miss them a lot when I’m at school, but I have tons of photos of them in my dorm.

IMG_0861

3.My favorite movie out of The Hunger Games film adaptations is Catching Fire, however, Catching Fire is my “least” favorite book in the series.

4.I have too many cardigans to count, but they are for sure the best things to wear in the fall and winter.

5.I used to be really into knitting when I was in middle school and a bit in high school. I enjoyed making scarfs the most, but my best accomplishment was my making a blanket with a crotched border.

6.Whenever I watch the Parks and Recreation episode, Ann and Chris, I cry at the end, when Ann says goodbye to Leslie (this is also a PSA to watch Parks and Recreation if you haven’t already).

7.My favorite gaming console is the Nintendo Gamecube. My siblings and I spent a lot of time this summer playing Mario Kart and Mario Superstar Baseball.

I’m not going to be nominating ten bloggers, but I will be nominating a few!

Disney Princess Sidekicks Book Tag

I was tagged by Danielle from Life of a Literary, whose book blogging game is always on point, to do the Disney Princess Sidekicks Book Tag. The title may be a mouthful, but it’s an exciting one from this Disney fan. Throughout this summer, I’ve been channeling my inner Moana (my dog is my Pua) at the beach and by the pool, singing “How Far I’ll Go” for all my neighbors to hear, even if my siblings go under water out of embarrassment! This tag was created by Mandy from Book Princess Reviews.

MUSHU FROM MULAN/OLAF + SVEN FROM FROZEN

THE COMIC RELIEF – NAME YOUR FAVORITE HILARIOUS CHARACTER OR YOUR FAVORITE COMEDY/FUNNY BOOK – Appa from Maurene Goo’s I Believe in a Thing Called Love. I’m a sucker for dad humor, and Appa’s cuteness more than helps matters.thingcalledl

THE SEVEN DWARFS FROM SNOW WHITE

FAVORITE GROUP/ENSEMBLE- I’ve read many books with fantastic group ensembles, but one that comes to mind (AND ONE THAT I HAVEN’T MENTIONED IN A WHILE SO IT’S OVERDUE) is the cast of V.E. Schwab’s Vicious. I’ll take Eli and Victor and Sydney and Dol and Mitch ANYDAY. *not so patiently awaits Book 2*.

IMG_4158PASCAL FROM TANGLED

THE LOYAL CHEERLEADER CHAMELEON (NOT A FROG, FLYNN RIDER) – NAME A BOOK THAT STARTED OUT ONE WAY BUT CHANGED FOR YOU-  The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder. Unfortunately, this book went from exciting to weirdom and a bit boredom for me. This book follows two best friends’ quite spontaneous getaway across the US, and as someone who joins in on any love for Morgan Matson’s Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour , I get very excited about books about road trips. However, the plot got very bizarre once Hannah and Zoe leaving their hometown, including Zoe’s fascination with aliens.

MEEKO FROM POCAHONTAS

POCAHONTAS’S SLY AND SNEAKY RACCOON FRIEND – NAME A PLOT TWIST THAT YOU DID NOT SEE COMING- I try to avoid finding out that a book has a plot twist as much as I can, so for this one, I’m going with a book that is well-known for its plot twist (not to mention one that even I DID NOT see coming– the more you read, the more you pick up on these things), We Were Liars by E.Lockhart.

RAJAH FROM ALADDIN / FLOUNDER FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID

GENTLE WITH THEIR PRINCESS BUT PROTECTIVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE – NAME YOUR FAVORITE BEST FRIEND IN A NOVEL- Jilly from Sarah Dessen’s Once and For All. I hope that Sarah writes a book all about Louna’s best friend’s food truck and babysitting shenanigans.

LOUIS FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / SEBASTIAN FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID / COGSWORTH, LUMIERE, MRS. POTTS, & CHIP FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

THE MUSICAL BUNCH – NAME A NOVEL WHERE MUSIC PLAYED A BIG PART OR MADE YOU WANT TO SING ITS PRAISES- This Savage Song by Victoria SchwabThis Savage Song is both a book where music plays a big role, as August finds power and comfort in his violin, and where I have continue to sing its praises.

MAXIMUS FROM TANGLEDIMG_4459

THE OBSTACLE IN FLYNN RIDER’S WAY – NAME A CHARACTER THAT FACES A LOT OF OBSTACLES- Elle from Geekerella by Ashley Poston.  As Elle fights against her stepmother and step sisters, she finds that having a dog and a friend with a food truck is more than helpful.

HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE

FAVORITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL- The Blair family from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s One True Loves. They own a bookstore for crying out loud!!! I don’t just love the Blairs for their bookstore, rather I love their support for one other and their goal of keeping their family together as much as they can (you better believe that the books help!).

RAY FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / 3 FAIRIES FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY

THE ADVICE GIVERS – BOOK THAT MOST IMPACTED YOUR LIFE- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It wasn’t so much the story that impacted my life (even though today’s world seems more and more headed into a dystopian tale), but rather it was my experience with it. I read THG the same year as its film release, and I doubted that I would even like it (even 13-year old Fangirl was afraid of the hype). As you may or may not have guessed, I fell in love with The Hunger Games and ate up the trilogy, and I consider it one of my very first fandoms . After seeing the first film adaptation with me, my dad even read them!! It was very bittersweet for the films to come to an end during my senior year of high school.

HEI HEI FROM MOANA

NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW- They can be just a tad (INSANELY) creepy, but AIDAN from Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

GUS & JAQ FROM CINDERELLA

OPPOSITES ATTRACT – NAME YOUR FAVORITE OR WORST OPPOSITE ATTRACTS PAIRING- One of my favorite opposite attracts paring is Cath and Jest from Marissa Meyer’s Heartless

Tag, you’re it! If you have a love not only for Disney Princess sidekicks and books, but this book tag, you’ve been tagged!

Wonder Woman Book Tag


I saw Wonder Woman in theatres back in June and I’m absolutely obsessed with anything Wonder Woman (who isn’t?) ever since. I’m so excited to see Justice League when it comes out later this year, but I’m even more excited for Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, the first book in the DC Icons series, to come out on August 29th. In anticipation for Wonder Woman: Warbringer, today I’ll be doing the Wonder Woman Book tag. This tag was created by Amber of Amber’s Books and More over on Booktube.

Wonder Woman: Your favorite badass female book characterCelaena Sardothein from Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series. When I think of badass female characters, Caleana automatically comes to my mind.


Fantasy Island: A Book Setting you want to escape toWarcross by Marie Lu. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Warcross back in June and I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL EVERYONE CAN PICK UP THIS BOOK AND WE CAN ALL FANGIRL OVER IT! I just want to jump into Warcross and play this virtual reality game!

London: A Hyped book that let you down – The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Steve Trevor: A Book that has a beautiful Cover and a Great Story (i.e. great personality)Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. I wrote a four paragraph review about all of my post-Salt to the Sea feelings on Goodreads right after reading it last year, and I still think back on this beautiful and heart-breaking story focused on lost history.

Lasso of Truth: A Book you hatedNemesis by Brendan Reich. Unfortunately, Nemesis did not live up to the hype for me, and the plot was very different than I expected to be.  While I appreciate its Lord of the Flies vibes, this YA novel felt more middle grade to me and I just couldn’t connect to the story and characters.

Wonder Woman’s Shield: A book so sad you need a shield– The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I still cry every reread, don’t worry.

Ares: A Villain that is scary, but you can’t seem to hate– Holland from the V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic trilogy. Holland is one of those villains that you can’t do anything but feel sorry for. He was always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Amazons: A book that you wish had more/better LTBT+ representationHarry Potter and the Cursed Child (if you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about)

Justice League: What superhero book friends do you tag?

Sunshine Blogger Award Part 2

The lovely Alex from coffeeloving bookoholic nominated me last week for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Even though I was previously nominated and already did the tag, I thought I would answer Alex’s questions and tag a blogger with my own questions

the rules:

  • thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • list the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post and/or on your blogsunshinebloggeraward.jpg

Alex’s Questions:

1.If you could do one job for the rest of your life, what would it be? Professional book reader (there’s health benefits, right?).

2.What’s the most important thing for you in a book review? Making sure to incorporate my favorite elements of the book. I love looking back on my reviews and seeing what I really enjoyed in a book.

3.Which author would you love to meet and why? Ruta Sepetys. She’s my favorite historical fiction author, and I consider Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Gray as two of my all-time favorite books. I’d love to have her sign my books and talk about her experience traveling for research.

4.Is there one book memory from your childhood that you will never forget? Reading Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl during story time in kindergarten, aka what started it all.

5.If you could time travel, which event would you like to be part of? Seeing the 1980 U.S men’s Olympic hockey team win gold in the games– Miracle is one of my favorite movies.

6. How would your perfect day look like? A sunny day perfect for the beach, going to the beach with a really great book in hand and my family for company, coming home to relax with a Parks and Recreation marathon and plenty of comfort food. Add some book mail in there, and that’s a perfect day to me!

7.Are you more productive in the morning or in the evening/night? Both. I feel so good about myself when I get up a bit early and start getting things done! However, I do get this strange motivation to do work around nine o’clock at night (for example, I’m writing this post at 10:30 at night).

8.Pc or mac? Mac

9.If you could turn your favorite book into a movie, which actors would you choose to play the part? My mind is absolutely blanking right now! To be honest, I get quite nervous when some of my favorite books get tv or film adaptations ( I still have no idea how Throne of Glass is going to translate into a TV show). But I must say, I am so excited To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before come to the big screen!

10. Which talent would you like to have? Singing. 

11.If you had three wishes, which ones would that be? I’m going to make my wishes fun and nerdish!

-Be able to go to San Diego Comic Con, all expenses paid

-Get a display case for my Funko Pop figures that would guarantee their safety (I think my Harry Potter’s glasses have broken off more as a result of falling off my book shelf than they have in the books).

-Go on an unlimited shopping spree in Barnes and Noble

My Questions:

  1. What’s your favorite blog post that you’ve written this year?
  2. What’s you most anticipated fall 2017 release?
  3. What’s your current favorite song of the summer?
  4. Movies or TV shows?
  5. What’s your favorite snack and drink to have while reading?
  6. What hyped book have you not read yet?
  7. A book that you’ve loved and deserves ALL the hype?
  8. Sunshine or rain?
  9. If you could go to one convention, all expenses paid, what convention would it be?
  10. What was the best book that you read in July?
  11. What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Summer Book Tag

Summer is not only my favorite season for the beach weather, but also for taking down my TBR pile! You could imagine my excitement then when I was recently tagged by Carrie from Salty Good Reads to do the Summer Book Tag. This tag was originally created by Kaelyn from misskaelyn over on Booktube.

What book cover makes you think of summer? The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (even though you could give me dogs and an ice cream truck during any season).

larajeanafWhat book has brightened your day? A much loved and talked about read of mine, Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. Just thinking about this book about Lara Jean makes my heart so happy.

Find a book cover with Yellow on it: The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

What is your favorite summer beach read? I’m going with my favorite book that I’ve read so far at the beach this summer, which is Made You Up by Francesca Zappia.

What action book had you running for the ice cream man?

I don’t read too many action books, but I’m going with The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and I’d be running to the ice cream to see if he’d trade the book for a vanilla soft serve. An unpopular opinion, The 5th Wave was just not my cup of tea.

(Sunburn) What book has left you with a bad and/or painful ending? Even thoughIMG_4433 my sunburn has been healed with A Court of Wings and Ruin, lets transport back in time to 2016 me with the ending of A Court of Mist and Fury. I needed ACOWAR then and there.
(Sunset) What book gave you the happiest feelings when it ended? Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. It reminded me so much of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, a feeling that my book soul had been craving for too long.

eliza&mon1What book cover reminds you of a sunset? Once and For All by Sarah Dessen—I’m thinking of those gorgeous lilac night skies as the moon is about to set.

What is one book or series you hope to read this summer? I’ve read so many 2017 releases and a lot of books that have been sitting on my TBR this summer, but I’m most proud of accomplishing my goal of reading the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab. I’d love to pick up a Taylor Jenkins Reid book this month though!

The Goodreads Book Tag

Goodreads has been one of my book BFFs since 2015, so I think it’s time to recognize one of my favorite websites.

What was the last book you marked as read? The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

What are you currently reading? Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

What do you plan to read next? Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart (ARC)

grb.jpg

Do you use the star rating system?

I do, but I recently wrote a discussion about my love-hate relationships with star ratings here.

Are you doing a 2017 Reading Challenge?

I am! My goal is to hit 58 books because that will put me at having read at least 200 books from 2015 to 2017.

What book do you plan on buying next?

I’m not really sure! I’m trying to limit how many books I buy for the rest of the year.

Do you have any favorite quotes?

UM YES! I am the type of reader who keeps a notepad close by when I’m reading just for the purpose of writing down quotes. Here’s one of my favorites from Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom:

“Jesper couldn’t quite believe he was having a conversation with the Sturmhond. The privateer was a legend. He’d broken countless blockades on behalf of the Ravkans and there were rumors that… “Do you really have a flying ship? blurted Jesper.


“No.”


“Oh.”


“I have several.”

“Take me with you.”

Jesper forever ❤

Who are your favorite authors?

Marie Lu, Ruta Sepetys, Rainbow Rowell, Jenny Han, and Sarah J. Maas

Have you joined any groups?

I’m part of Top Five Wednesday and a group focused on Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles (I remember freaking out over Winter’s cover).

The “Friends” Character Book Tag (Original Tag)

friendscbt.jpg

Besides reading this summer, I’ve been constantly rewatching one of my all-time favorite TV shows, Friends. Today, I am presenting the Friends Character Book Tag! The only rules of the tag are to answer the following questions, tag your fellow bloggers and vloggers, and mention the original post in your tag. Happy reading & Friends reminiscing!

The Questions:

Rachel: A character whose wardrobe you want to steal– Lara Jean from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han- Lara Jean has such an adorable wardrobe, and I feel like she would consider Rachel Green as one of her fashion icons. Lara Jean goes on a vintage dress hunt in the last book in the series, Always and Forever, Lara Jean, that I would have loved to join her on.

FullSizeRender

Joey: A book that left you mind-blownThe One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr- I didn’t know what to expect in Emily Barr’s The One Memory of Flora Banks, just knowing that our main protagonist, Flora, suffers from short-term memory loss. This book is all about Flora trying to have some sort of control on her own life, and I would have never predicted the ending of this book. I have a full review here.

Chandler: A book that made you laugh out loud– Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella- One of my favorite parts of reading Finding Audrey was Audrey and her family’s humor. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Bloody is not swearing,” he says, breathing hard, though to rein in his impatience.
“It is!”
“It’s in the Harry Potter films, OK? Harry Potter. How can it be swearing?”
“What?” Mum sounds wrong footed.
“Harry Potter. I rest my case.” ” (21)

 

FullSizeRender

Monica: A book that made you hungry Heartless by Marissa Meyer. Monica Geller would be the first to appreciate Cath’s love for baking in Marissa Meyer’s Queen of Hearts origin story, Heartless. I still need to try to replicate Cath’s lemon tarts! I have a full review of Heartless here.

Ross: A book that gave you all the feels I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson- When I think about books that have beautiful writing, I automatically think of Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun. In my Goodreads “review” of the move from 2015, I wrote, “If you want a book that gives you the feels, read this one!”.

Phoebe: A quirky & enjoyable readMade You Up by Francesca Zappia- Francesca Zappia’s Made You Up is a quirky read that sheds light on mental illness. High school senior Alex often has trouble distinguishing reality from delusion, relying on her Magic 8- ball and the mysterious Miles for guidance.
