Life update 

Hey guys! So it’s been a few weeks… ugh I hate that I keep taking breaks from the blog but here I am again. My only excuse is that I’ve been in a reading slump so I haven’t been reading so I’ve had trouble think of something to post. I’m still in my slump but I’m in the recovery stage lol. Hopefully by Thursday my blog post will be back to normal. 

     I’m currently reading three books because I can’t figure out what I want to read. The three books are 

Wayfare by Alexander Bracken, the girl in the blue coat by Monica Hessse, and everything, everything by Nicola Yoon. That last one is a reread for me because I wanted to remove something that I know I like to try to get out of my slump. Anyways that’s all I have to talk to you guys about today just wanted to give it update hopefully I’ll be back to posting regularly soon.

#1 Wayfarer by Alexander Bracken. This is the sequel too Passenger and the final book in the duology. I’m really excited to read this book and see what happens to all these characters. If you like treasure hunts and time travel then Passenger is definitely the book for you.
#2 Hollow city by Randsom Riggs. This is the sequel to the Miss Periguins home for peculiar children. I really enjoyed this first books but I’ve been putting off reading the rest of the books (for no good reason honestly). 
#3 Library of lost souls by Randsom Riggs. This is the third and final (?) book in the MPHFPC series. I’m super excited to finally finish this series and see how this story ends. Let me know if you guys would like too see reviews for these or any others on this list.
#4 Lord Opium by Nancy Farmer. This is the sequel (apparently I just want to read sequels this month) to House of the Scorpion which I read a few months ago and really enjoyed.
   Anyways that’s all for today, sorry for such a short post today but I’m getting ready to go out out of town and I have a lot to do. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!

Seven years

, , , , ,

Seven years, I waited for that one simple moment.I was young, naïve, and had a few less scars. 

Somehow your pretty boy smile caught my eye.
Then I went away.

I grew up.

Fell for the wrong people and cried for the ones that didn’t care.

I gained a few scars and decided to come home.
You still had that brown curly hair and know-it-all look in your eye, and I fell for it again.

I put on what armor I had left and put myself on the front line.

I stood their far to vulnerable but I was willing to risk it for that pretty boy smile.
But I forgot to protect my heart and you took it, only for a few perfect seconds and decided to move on too the next one willing to sacrifice themselves for you. 

I hope she was good enough for your stupid pretty boy smile. 

I hope you know I was in love with that stupid smile for seven years.

Hey guys! Today I will discuss the books I’ve read in the month of June. I’ve had an amazing reading month, I read a total of seven books! I really enjoyed almost all of them so with out further a due lets get into it.
#1 A court of mist and fury by Sarah J. Mass. This is the third book in SJM’s acotar series. I loved this book and I gave it five stars. I did a full review on this book so if you want to know my thoughts go check that out. https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/03/a-court-of-wings-and-ruin-book-review/ 
#2 A whole new world by Liz Braswell. This book is a retelling of Aladdin , I’m not going to lie I didn’t really enjoy this book and I don’t really have a reason why, it just wasn’t really my thing. I gave it three out of five stars.
#3 Always and forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. This is the third and final book in the Lara Jean trilogy. I really enjoyed this book though it was probably my least favorite in the Trilogy. I gave it four stars and I have a full review if you want to know more. https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/always-and-forever-lara-jean-book-review/ 
#4 Invitation by Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, and Alton Gansky. I loved this book! It’s split up into four different parts each written by a different author, it all came together amazing and it became a great story as a whole. It’s about these four different people from very different backgrounds who inspect the paranormal. I gave this book five stars.
#5 The last star by Rick Yancy. This is the third and final book in the fifth wave trilogy, I don’t know why but for some reason I don’t like these characters at all and they kind of ruin the story for me. I thought the ending was kind of weird and unsatisfying. These characters make so many stupid choices and their so annoying. I gave this two stars.
#6 The book jumper by Mechthild Gläser. I loved this book and it was so unique and different. I gave it four stars and I did a spoiler free review so go check it out. The https://fanaticbooknerd.wordpress.com/2017/06/17/the-book-jumper-book-review/ 
#7 Redeeming love by. I loved this book and I gave it five stars. It’s about this woman who has had this horrible life and she meets this guy that completely turns her world upside down and that’s all i’ll say because it’s more fun to go into this book not knowing a whole lot. 
   Well that’s all for today! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow! Happy reading!

I will gladly hold your hand And sit by your side

But I will not be the girl to occupy your time while you wait for her.

I don’t care if she loves you.

The book jumper |Book Review 

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser. This book doesn’t come out till July 20th but for some reason my Barnes and noble already had it on the shelf so I was able to get it super early. 
    Description:

Amy Lennox doesn’t know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother’s childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay.

Amy’s grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy’s new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts at whatever cost.”
    I really enjoyed this book though it wasn’t my favorite but it was still really enjoyable. The story is so unique and it feels like a love letter to reading. So many amazing pieces of literature were referenced and we got to see and interact with all kinds of characters. Characters from the the jungle book, Pride and prejudice, Peter Pan, and a couple others. I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading and to anyone who has ever dreamed of being a character in their favorite book. 

     There’s this great element of mystery in this book. You ink you know what’s going on but then there’s another twist that turns this story right on its head. 

      These characters are all very different and have barely anything in common. We have Amy our main character who unlike most ya protagonist she is really skinny and has been bullied most of her life because of it. I liked her character but she could have had more development in my opinion. 

     Then there’s her mother Alexis who we really didn’t see a lot of in This book. I didn’t trust her and I thought she was hiding something. Her character seems a little unhinged and doesn’t really know what she’s doing as a mother.

     There’s also Will who oh my goodness his child most be protected at all cost. He’s a great friend to Amy and I love how their relationship grows through out this book.

     Overall I really enjoyed this book and I hope we get more stories set in this world with these characters. I gave this book four out of five stars. I hope you guys enjoyed this review and don’t forget to like, comment, and follow. Happy reading!

I’d rather be a bird

Tags

, , , , ,

I’d rather be bird.Just picture it, you could fly wherever and whenever.

No responsibilities, no commitment, no pressure.
Birds don’t have to deal with heartbreak and lies.

Oh how nice it would be to be a bird.
If I was a bird I could see the world.

I wouldn’t have to worry about the future or be broken by the past. 
But birds don’t have a home .

Birds don’t have family dinners.

Birds don’t know what it’s like to dance the night away with someone you care about.

Birds don’t know what it’s like to laugh with your friends at two in the morning.
When I really think about it, it’s truly better to be me.

Don’t break my heart 

Tags

, , , , ,

Well this is different. What makes you special?

For the first time I didn’t fall for you because of your looks or your humor but for your heart. 

I don’t know why but I just know that those bright blue eyes won’t break my heart.

And I like that.
For some reason I like our relaxed playfulness a lot better then the soul crushing anxiety I had with the others.

I like that my heart doesn’t stop when you walk in a room.

I like that I don’t have to become a new person just to build up the courage to talk to you.
Maybe I don’t have to loes my mind to find love.

Maybe not everything in life had to be a uphill battle.

Please just keep this simple, take my hand and tell me how you feel.

That’s all I’ll need.
