Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted all summer😦 I don’t really have an excuse, I honestly didn’t feel like blogging. But, I am trying to break through this blogging slump, so hopefully I will be posting and commenting on posts frequently again from now on.
But, just because I haven’t been bogging doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing stuff!! I have acquired new books:
While I was on vacation I bought Miss Potter by Richard Maltby Jr. I enjoy reading biographies and this one was only $4.00! I am looking forward to start it.
And ahh, Someone Stop Ivy Pocket by Caleb Krisp. Ivy Pocket is seriously the most bizarrely peculiar series to ever exist, and it has me completely smitten. I have started Somebody Stop Ivy Pocket, but I am not very far into it.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t sure about I Am Princess X since the title makes it sound like a children’s book, but I read the back and it sounds so good! Right off the bat it reminded me of The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin, which I enjoyed, so I can’t wait to start this. I’m really hoping I can use it for a literature class I’m taking in the fall😄.
I’m sure I’ve bought more books than that, but those are the ones that stand out to me. Aside from buying books, I’ve also been reading books. I actually started and finished a series…
THE SELECTION SERIES!!!!
GUYS. IT IS SO AMAZING.
I was talking to my friend’s parents about books, and they mentioned a book that their daughter (my friend) liked, The Selection. I had always seen these books at bookstores, but never thought to pick them up! Well, my Mom and I rushed to Barnes and Nobles and bought the first book. My mom reads super quick and urged me to read it, but I was for some unknown reason I was hesitant, so my mom finished all six books before I started the Selection. But.. I finally overcame my stubbornness and made the best decision of my life, and started reading it. And, tbh, I didn’t really like it!! So I started some other books and blah blah, but once I really sat down to read it, I couldn’t put it down!! Like my Mom, I blew through the books and I am sad to announce that I am finished!! I read all six books, and the book of novellas, and I am officially out of selection reading material. Now all I have is selection instagram accounts to feed my need for America Singer.
Incase you are interested in this amazing series, here is the summary of The Selection.
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape a rigid caste system, live in a palace, and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and competing for a crown she doesn’t want.
Then America meets Prince Maxon—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Do yourself a favor and read these.
I recently started Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I am so conflicted! I want to read it so badly but then it will be over!! At least for this generation of Harry Potter anyway. But it is really good so far! I am only on page one hundred and there has already been two deaths!
Harry Potter and Death.
Well anyway, thats what I’ve been up to. What have you been reading? Or what is on your fall TBR list? Leave me a comment, I’d love to know!
