Howdy ya’ll! This is the first time I’ll be doing a Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) meme and I’m very excited for it! I have been seeing this meme since forever and have wanted to join for so long and now I’m very excited to finally participate 😀

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and they have a new topic each week. You can check out their amazing blog here and join in the fun!

This week’s topic is Top Ten 2016 Debut Novels I’m Looking Forward To. I find these books really interesting – title-wise, cover-wise and plot-wise. Several of these books are books that I have come across with several times because of Twitter and all the hype of these books, along with all the feedback I hear, is enough for me to anticipate their 2016 release dates.

NOVEMBER WRAP-UP + DECEMBER TBR

Howdy ya’ll! Time zones aside, today more or less likely marks the end of November and the start of the merry month of December! I see a lot of people on my twitter timeline changing their names into Christmas-y ones which I think it’s adorkably creative. It also helps me to feel the Christmas season even more thanks to the weather we are currently experiencing here in our country. ‘tis the season to welcome Sweater Weather once more!

On to today’s post, I’ll be wrapping up the books I have read for November as well as sharing some books I plan to read for next month. So let’s get started 😀

NOVEMBER WRAP-UP

I was able to read a total of six books this month, of which I am still finishing the sixth one as I write this blog post but will still include it in this month’s wrap-up.

missperegrine_334x518

 

Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Author: Ransom Riggs

My rating: 3 stars

I regret not having to review this so here is just an overview of what I thought about it:

I have an unpopular opinion with this book so this serves as a disclaimer for you who loved the book and don’t agree with opinions against it. I read this book because I decided to dare myself into reading a scary book in time for Halloween. I have started reading it then but I finished it on November so that is why this is included in this list. I would have wanted to like this book more than I appreciate it now since I found the book a bit hyped so I had quite high expectations with this. Unfortunately, I found the book a little anti-climactic for me especially since the build-up was felt more on the beginning of the book and didn’t follow through for me as the book progressed. As I was reading the ending, I wasn’t inclined to read the next book even though the ending makes me curious, but apparently not curious enough.

I do like some parts of the book especially the fact that it did spook me to an extent that I was too much of a scaredy cat to continue reading it late at night. I found the pictures very fascinating as well as the stories behind them and all the peculiarity of all of Miss Peregrine’s “children” as I address them. It was an interesting story so I still decided to rate it at least 3 stars.

 

images[1]Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 5 stars

I wrote a review about this amazing book, of which you could read here if you want. THIS BOOK WAS AMAZEBALLS. I need not say more. This is a book I highly recommend because I’d like all of you to experience the beauty of Sarah J. Maas’s books for yourselves. 😀

 

 

Melophobia.Final[1]Title: Melophobia

Author: James Morris

My rating: 4 stars

This is the second time an author approached me for a review of his book (I didn’t get to post a review of the first one since I didn’t have a blog yet then). You could see my review of it here. The premise and the plot of this novel are really interesting. I enjoyed reading this and though it’s not Christmas-y in any way, I’d still recommend it to you.

 

314772_281427445217498_151780294848881_1152897_737238917_nTitle: Insurgent

Author: Veronica Roth

My rating: 3.5 stars

So this the second book of the Divergent series and I had high expectations for this especially because of the hype it got and still gets. I looked back on how I felt when I was reading the book which was okay. It wasn’t great, though, but I still enjoyed reading it for the most part.

I don’t know if it’s just me but I found it easier to delve into the world Divergent narrates rather than Insurgent. I mean I’m all for uprisings for utilitarianistic causes but I found this book with too much of it and a heavier ambience that I disconnected a bit. I can’t pinpoint or put into words what exactly I had a problem with, really, but generally, 3.5 stars is the highest I could give this.

 

Offical-Allegiant-CoverTitle: Allegiant

Author: Veronica Roth

My rating: 4 stars

All I can say for this is that towards the end of the book, I cried for a good 30 minutes and I have Veronica Roth to thank for it. I’ll most probably write a review for this so I could express my feels to its full extent.

 

 

 

Heroes_of_Olympus_-_The_Son_of_NeptuneTitle: Son of Neptune

Author: Rick Riordan

My rating: (Still reading this but so far, I’ll give it 3 stars)

I’m only halfway done with this but I’m happy to say Percy’s baaaaack! And Grover! And Annabeth! Plus I met new characters I really like and I’ll write a review about this too when I’m done and I’m excited to share it with you guys 😀

MELOPHOBIA BOOK REVIEW

Howdy ya’ll! I received a digital copy of the book Melophobia by James Morris in exchange for an honest review. So, today we’re reviewing:

Melophobia.Final[1]

Title: Melophobia

Author: James Morris

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

 

Goodreads summary:

The time – now; the place – America, but in a world where the government controls all forms of art and creativity, any music sowing the seeds of anarchy is banned – destroyed if found – its creators and listeners harshly punished.

Merrin Pierce works as an undercover Patrol officer assigned to apprehend a fugitive musician who threatens the safe fabric of society, only to confront everything she thought to be true – her values, upbringing, job, and future.

Can love survive in a world without music?

 

What are my over-all thoughts of the book?

To be honest, the book exceeded my expectations. I found myself wanting to read it all day every day, wanting to get to the bottom of things and just making ways and excuses to be able to read it. When I wasn’t reading it, I thought of reading it – I thought of the kind of world the book had.

With this being said, the premise of the book is in Los Angeles – only that it was parallel to the Los Angeles we all know: people wore conservative outfits, the community is quiet and forms of literature, dance, art and other creative artworks are forbidden. Among all these, there is one thing that is prohibited the most: Music.

I found this such a creative concept for the author to think of. Music is such a huge part in all of our lives, too huge we take it for granted. This book made me realize how music is in fact one of the best things we could have (or hear) and life would turn into a constant, boring blob without it. If I think about it, it becomes a scary world –if music, in all of its wonderful forms – would be banned.

Merrin Pierce is an undercover Patrol officer who swore to rid their community with music – the very thing that corrupted her family, the thing that they believe would spark unwanted and unnecessary rebellion and misbehavior. When I was reading her thoughts about how she viewed music and how she was determined to eradicate it, I found it rational given her circumstances. But for the rest of the community, they were taught that music is bad. And all I could say was how could they live with that? Seeing as they never heard music before, they didn’t know what they were missing.

Merrin is then sent to do a big undercover mission to discover the source of the music and finds herself in situations beyond her imaginations. Situations that could make her disbelieve what has been her steadying rock throughout her life. I could somehow connect myself easily with Merrin and hopefully future readers would feel the same way. I found the conflicts she faces, the thoughts she has, are almost as similar as mine which was so good to read because I felt I was in her shoes the whole time I was reading.

The romance in this book is as scandalous and as wonderful as it could get. (Not in the dirty way, you guys!) Merrin’s basically caught up in a really complicated love triangle that makes her decide between her principles in which she stood by all her life and the opportunities a new and free kind of life could offer her.

The story also made me question many things in our culture which were implied in the subtexts of the book: Does music really encourage unwanted rebellion and misbehavior with their lyrics patronizing the use of drugs and alcohol and having sex? Would the world possibly be more peaceful if not for punk, metal, and rock n roll music people love? How does music affect our lives? Could we eventually lived in a world without it like the people in Merrin’s world? Could we literally DIE without music? So many more questions float in my head, so much curiousity brought up by this amazing book which I would love to discuss with you all. Go read the book – it’s available at Amazon! Riiiiiight here. 🙂

The book has many twists and turns that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat wanting for more – because I know I did! I loved every single page, every chapter of this reading experience and I’m very much thankful for Mr. James Morris for letting me review his amazing book!

BOOK TALK: A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES BY SARAH J. MAAS

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES BOOK REVIEW

Howdy ya’ll! Today we’re reviewing:

images[1]

 

Title: A Court Of Thorns And Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

 

Goodreads summary:

When nineteen-year old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin – one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled the world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it…or doom Tamlin – and his world – forever.

 

What are my over-all thoughts in this book? (spoiler free)

If I could put my feelings for this book in one word, it probably would be beautifulfantasticandabsolutelyoneofthemostperfectbooksiveeverread. So, yeah. Obviously, I loved it. I have read all of Sarah J. Maas’s books by now and I therefore conclude that all her books are so good and amazing, and ACOTAR is definitely not an exception. If I could rate this more than five stars, I would. Plus, like a typical SJM book, ACOTAR HAS A MAP! (which all of us knows is an early sign of a book’s impending awesomeness).

This story talks about the world of the Fae (Sarah has an amazing fascination for the Fae world as it is obvious in her books) which I find very interesting and entertaining to read. The Fae world in the Throne of Glass series is so epic and wonderful for me but I honestly would like to live in this Fae world more. Oh, and by the way the land of the Fae is called Prythian. (Where does Sarah get all these amazingly creative names of people and places?) One of the main reasons why I would want to live there? One word, my friends. TAMLIN. And because of the presence of magic, of course! (But yes, for the most part it’s because of Tamlin. *sighs dreamily*)

Its story line loosely follows one like Beauty and the Beast’s where the lead guy is cursed and the curse could only be lifted by one girl who could fall in love with him despite his flaws. But this book is hugely distinct compared to Beauty and the Beast. Sarah J. Maas just has this special touch with her books that you could never not love.

Like the rest of her books, I found it very easy to get lost in this world in the best way possible. And I actually didn’t want to finish it so fast because I wanted to stay in that world, with those characters, a bit longer. The characters are also different from each other which makes it all the more engaging. It was hard to let go of this book, you guys.

I’d also like to acknowledge how I very much appreciate the female protagonist in this book. Feyre. Characters like her are one of the reasons why I love books like this so much – they inspire me. Feyre is the breadwinner of her family despite her being the youngest of three sisters. She’s brave and clever and practically the kind of person I eventually want to be.

You’ll get to know Tamlin, Feyre and all the other characters in this book and see their awesomeness for yourself. So if you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you do ;D

This book has so much epicness and adventure in it, you’d want to reach for the next book! *A Court of Mist and Fury (out 2016, May 3rd)*

 

PicsArt_11-07-05.41.37-1-1-1[1]

Okay. Ships are the first thing I’d like to talk about this book.

I have been hearing lots of opinions expressing thoughts of shipping Feyre with Rhysand. And seeing as my ship in the Throne of Glass series is Chaolaena, I guess you wouldn’t be surprised that I ship Feyre with Tamlin. (Although if Feyre wants Rhysand instead, I can have Tamlin so everything’s still good.)

But I am kind of nervous for ACOMAF because in Sarah’s books, there is a high possibility in which you ship one couple for one minute, and a whole new one the next. (Like how people instantly shipped Rowaelin after reading Queen of Shadows).

Also, did anyone ever realize it was a Beauty-and-the-Beast-esque story while reading it? Because I surprisingly didn’t. I only realized it after I read it then thought back on the book. With that being said, I think the revelation of the curse was one of the highlights in the book, and me being a book crier and all, I practically silently sobbed while Feyre and Alis were having the conversation about Tamlin’s curse and how she could’ve broken his curse WITH THREEE BLOODY DAYS TO SPARE. BUT TAMLIN LET HER GO. HE LET GO BECAUSE SHE WAS IN DANGER AND LETTING HER GO WAS THE ONLY WAY HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO KEEP FEYRE SAFE – EVEN IF IT MEANT NOT CURING THE CURSE.

He loved Feyre and Feyre loved him. It was as simple as that. The romance between them was so beautiful and charming to read and made me feel warm and fuzzy because I love them. I just love them both to pieces.

Here are two of my favorite scenes in the whole book:

 

I suppose it’ll be easier when I’m gone,” I said, looking away from him. “Who wants someone around who’s so covered in thorns?”

“Thorns?”

“Thorny. Prickly. Sour. Contrary.”

[…]

As consciousness left me at last, I thought I heard him speak, his mouth close to my ear.

“I love you,” he whispered, and kissed my brow. “Thorns and all.”

Also, I love the part when Feyre eventually decided to go back to Prythian and face Amarantha to free Tamlin and his people of the curse and Amarantha made her do tasks in order to prove her love for Tamlin was indeed true. I loved it when she used those bones as her ladder from the worm’s pit. I was actually smiling so wide because I felt like Rhysand at that moment: beaming with pride for Feyre and betting all my coppers she’d defeat the worm.

 

What are my theories for the next book?

I know so far, Sarah doesn’t have those hobbies of killing characters we love so dearly, but in truth, I am quite nervous of the possible deaths of characters in the next books. (Maybe the next one or the one after the next.) I actually don’t want to name names so…

I also feel that Amarantha might still be alive because of Jurian’s bone and eye missing. I somehow feel that Amarantha is still lurking because a part of her is in the bone and eye. And it makes me worry for Prythian a lot.

OCTOBER WRAP-UP

Howdy ya’ll! Happy Halloween! (I may be a little late in greeting, but better late than never).

For the month of October, I have read 8 books. All of which I loved, some more than others but I’m really happy this month was a month of good books!

So let’s get started! 😀

greendotsimages[1]

Title: The Bane Chronicles

Author: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Bane Chronicles is a compilation of 10 novellas set in different times from the year 1791 until 2007/2008. The story follows Magnus Bane’s epic adventures all over the world with different people such as his fellow warlocks, Catarina Loss and Ragnor Fell, the Herondales, Tessa Gray, Jem Carstairs and Alec Lightwood, to name a handful. It’s action-packed just as it is funny. I remember reading this in public (because I can’t stop reading, really) on the bus ride on my way home. I giggled and chuckled alot and got wide-eyed with page after page and it was just a really fun reading experience most especially having encountered her characters in her other books of the Shadowhunter world.

If you have read The Infernal Devices and the Mortal Instruments, this is just one more reason to love this book! 😀

15749186Title: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Author: Jenny Han

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This wasn’t in my TBR list for the month of October and I was actually planning to put this off until next year because I found the cover and the title a little too cheesy for my taste. But a friend recommended me this and I thought, Fine, I’ll give this one a go. AND I DO NOT REGRET IT.

It’s one of the cutest books I have read and the characters just stick with you even after you’ve read it. Plus the cliffhanger towards the end makes you want to pick up the next book immediately (which is exactly what happened in my case, which also brings us to the next book in my October wrap-up).

I have a book talk of it here 😀

P.S.-I-still-love-you-Jenny-Han-coverTitle: P.S. I Still Love You

Author: Jenny Han

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I picked up this book right after I finished To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and I honestly liked the first book better but I liked this one, too! This book was more problematic compared to the first one but one could easily relate to the MC’s experiences and thoughts in this book which made me nod and agree to what she had to say.

I liked this book a lot and this would be a perfect book for you especially if you have crushes or there’s a special someone you have.

I also have a book talk of this right here 🙂

images_(1)[1]Title: Mockingjay

Author: Suzanne Collins

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book gave me a lot of goosebumps- in a good way. I felt connected with the emotions pouring through Katniss Everdeen, her hate towards the Capitol and her resistance to bow down to a life of slavery. IT WAS SO GOOD. The scenes were so gripping it made me awe, it made me chuckle, it made me cry, heck, it even made me shout at the pages because I loved it so much.

I wasn’t able to make a book talk of this (which is a bummer) but there are spoiler things I want to say about this but at the same time I don’t wanna spoil you. All I can say is, the deaths in this book took me by surprise. They shocked me and made my eyes sweat yet again. The strategies our main characters, the Capitol rebels. face make you hold on to the edge of your seat because of course you want to see Capitol’s downfall (we all do.)

Also, for KatPee shippers out there, THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL SO MUCH MIXED EMOTIONS. For those of you who haven’t read it yet, you’re in for a treat!

I couldn’t say more. I love this book and I recommend it to all of you.

The_Lost_Hero_210Title: The Lost Hero

Author: Rick Riordan

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

As you can expect with Rick’s books, it is equally epic as it is funny. I cannot tell you how many times I laughed while reading this. We meet new characters as well as old ones so that, for me, makes it 10x more awesome-er (if that was a word). There’s also a problem we eventually solve towards the end of the book which would make you gasp and worry for a certain character *I’m not telling 😂;)*

I really enjoyed reading this book and I hope you would, too!

(I have a book talk about it here )

images_(2)[1]Title: Every Day

Author: David Levithan

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is one of the most unique books I have ever read. It’s about astral traveling (this is the closest term I could think of as to how I would describe the situation in the book). It’s about A waking up in different bodies every single day. Everything was fine and all worked as if it was a routine until he met Rhiannon. He then started going out of his way, disobeying his self-imposed rule of not getting making much difference in the lives of those he becomes for a day.

I loved how we got to explore the perspectives of different kinds of people and how we get to go through the journey of the main character towards finding their way to love. (This sounds cheesy but I promise, the book isn’t cheesy. Curse my ineloquency.) The ending, however, I’M TRYING SO HARD NOT TO SAY ANYTHING THAT WILL SPOIL YOU BUT… just prepare your tissues. That is all.

images_(3)[1]Title: Carry On

Author: Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

THIS BOOK IS BLOODY AMAZEBALLS. (Not literally bloody, though). I think this might be my most favorite Rainbow Rowell book to date. The main characters, Simon and Baz, are magicians studying at Watford to practice and hone their magic skills. (Harry Potter feels, I know.) Then there is this impending war against the Insidious Humdrum which is supposed to be the reason for magic disappearing. One more reason why I love this book so much is because it gives light to gay relationships. Few books tackle this, and everybody knows we need diverse books 😀  It’s cute when the main characters slowly fess up to each other about how they feel and it was so good the way their relationship turned out to be. The magic in this book is so entertaining as it is powerful. A funny, magic-filled, funny book rolled into one!

I highly recommend this because IT IS A DEFINITE MUST READ 😍

images_(4)[1]Title: Divergent

Author: Veronica Roth

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I’m way behind on this wagon because I’ve only just read this now. (I regret that). This is another off the charts good book! Tris, the main character, is this girl whose identity is considered a threat to the ‘peace’ of their community. There are five factions wherein the people are divided; Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor, Amity and Erudite which highlights bravery, selflessness, honesty, kindess and intelligence, respectively. Tris turns out to be none of these. She is Divergent.

On the day of the Choosing ceremony, 16 year olds of every faction get to pick if they would stay with their old faction or if they would transfer to another one for good.

Despite choosing Dauntless, she discovers she is so much more. With the help of Four, one of the Dauntless leaders.

Like the other books mentioned, this is an action-packed books that is so gripping, it makes you want to turn page after page. The romance is this book… I LOVE IT. I love every scene of Tris and Four, I feel like I’m a 13-year old girl when I squeal for them. I feel like I want to praise this book so much but I think this post is already too long 😂

Anyways, I highly recommend this to you because IT’S. SO. GOOD.

P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU BOOK REVIEW (NO SPOILERS)

Howdy! I decided not to express my spoilery feels just yet. I’ll put them on a separate post so your virtual fangirl torches won’t be aimed at me when I accidentally spoil you.

So today, we are reviewing:

P.S.-I-still-love-you-Jenny-Han-cover

P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU BY JENNY HAN

smalllightpinkdots[1]

P.S. I Still Love You is the sequel book to Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I have a book review about it so you could check it out here.

The sequel follows the story of Lara Jean Covey whose love letters to the boys she has loved before got sent out to each and every one of them – which now brings them to the situation that Lara Jean and Peter started pretend dating to save face from Josh Sanderson, Lara Jean’s past love, and Genevieve, Peter’s ex-girlfriend. The book continues on how the first book ended with a real love letter for Peter.

More funny, awkward and face-palming adventures await them as their story continues. My over-all thoughts about the book were that it was just as funny as the first one, and that it ended so fast. I WANTED MORE. I want another book because that’s how much I love the story, no matter how cheesy it may sound or look to others.

Also just like the first book, I’d recommend this to you if you were looking for a feel good book and something that would just make you close your eyes and smile and let your head wander to dreamy thoughts and stuff and it’s wonderful.

We get to know more about the characters and how their relationships are connected, not to mention how their pasts still affect them in the present. The friendship in the book is something worth thinking about, and something that you wish you’d have as well.

I’m not sure I could say much non-spoilery things other than that, so all I can say is go read the book and I hope you’ll have as much fun reading it as much as I did. 🙂

Howdy, ya’ll! I am so excited to finally having a wordpress! I have been interacting with a number of book bloggers now and most of them have suggested this site for me to try on and start my book blog. Now I can post my book reviews, book recommendations and all things bookish.

I’ll have to work extra hard to gather my wits together to give you reviews which won’t be hard to understand, considering how my mind can be frazzled easily as I spazz with books.

More than that, I’m excited to get to interact with other book bloggers like me 🙂

If there are things to know about me, it would be this: I love reading about books, I love talking about books with other people who also love books, I’m a college student so I’m trying to squeeze more reading time to the already hectic schedule I have. (Book problems, I know.)

I am open to reading any genre and open to all your comments and suggestions (so long as they are not offensive) and would love to get feedback from you.

This is my first time book blogging so I’ll try my hardest to write and review the best way I can. 🙂

Also (before I forget), 😅 my name is Maan (as in ma-an) and I’d love to talk books with you! ❤
