Throwback Thursday – Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles #1) by Ellen Oh

throwbackthursday

Renee began Throwback Thursday at Its Book Talk as a way to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books that she wants to read that were published over a year ago. Books that were published over a year ago are almost always easier to find at libraries or at a discounted sale price. As I have been sifting through my TBR list and purging those books that no longer hold my interest, I came across several from years past that I’d love to share with you! Continue reading

Down the TBR Hole #9

rainbowchalkTBRHOLE

I have been doing these Down the TBR posts for several weeks now and, unfortunately, my TBR pile is still growing. When I started these posts my TBR pile was around 100, now it is over 150 even with the purging. Yikes! Maybe I should be a little more ruthless because I know I will never read all of these books. Lets try to bring the hammer down on it today, shall we?

Down the TBR Hole is a meme that was started by Lia @ Lost in a Story. Here is how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

The Fall Book Tag

fall-book-tag

As I sat here this chilly Saturday, sipping my pumpkin spice flavored coffee, I spotted this tag over at Bionic Book Worm (who created it) and at Thrice Read. Sure, I wasn’t tagged, but when does that ever stop me? There is a cool breeze blowing in my open windows and fuzzy socks on my feet. It may not actually be fall but it sure feels like it here. That makes it a perfect day to tackle The Fall Book Tag!

30237061

 

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody  – I loved this book. It has a spooky magic circus theme which felt really different from most of the books that I read.

 

fall-tag-2

18966819

 

Golden Son by Pierce Brown – To say my jaw hit the floor at the end of this one would be an understatement. Holy moly! It has been one of my favorite reads of 2017. fall-tag-5

20764879

 

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab – Prince Rhy and Alucard. Do I really need to say anything more than that? Warm fuzzies all over the place for those two. fall-tag-6

147917

 

A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire #4) by George R.R. Martin – How about a cover with read, orange, AND yellow? Huh? Pretty good, right? Those colors just shout fall leaves. fall-tag-3

thesongrising1

 

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon – So much happens to our characters in this book. They are constantly getting in some kind of trouble and trying to conquer the bad guys. Can’t wait to see what kind of mayhem Paige gets into in the next book. fall-tag-4

29217027

 

Iron Gold (Iron Gold #1) by Pierce Brown – I absolutely cannot wait to read more of the world Brown created in his Red Rising series. The details, the character development, everything was just amazing.

I tag anyone who wants to do this tag! It was pretty fun and I enjoyed hunting down the right books for each answer. If you do it, put your link in the comments. I would love to see your answers!

Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Were A Chore To Read

e34e0-toptentuesday

Hello and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s topic is Ten Books I Struggled to Get Into But Ended Up Loving or Ten Books That Were A Chore To Get Through or Ten Books I’ve Most Recently Put Down (the theme is…books you had a hard time with…tweak it how ever you need) which is, of course, brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. We all have those books that we open up, expecting to enjoy, and then they turn into a chore to read. Some of them we get through, some of them we don’t. Today I’ll give you the books that became a chore for me to read, whether I finished them or not.
