Hi, book lovers!
Who’s ready for the weekend?! I’ve been waiting months for this one to come. My nerd fam is all heading to Fan Expo! My little nerd in me wants to scream while I write this post. It’s my second expo, but I’m just as excited as I was with my first.
Okay, let’s get back to book stuff, shall we? August was such a fantastic month! Sure, stress kicked my butt, but books were my saviour. I’ve been putting off the TOG series for years, but I’m so happy to be a part of this fandom. I just wish there were more books after Kingdom of Ash, which, I know, will break me in two.
I can’t believe I’ve read this much. I typically breeze through four books, max. However, this month, I couldn’t get enough of the TOG series. I almost squeezed in Lifel1k3, but I’m still reading that sci-fi. I’m thrilled finally to tackle my never-ending TBR pile!
Now, I just need to catch up on my reviews. 🤦♀️
I’ve avoided romance books for years. But this year, I want to take more risks with certain genres. And I’m so happy I got the chance to read this thrilling romance! Nora combines high adrenaline, steamy scenes, gangsters, and a fiery love story.
I’ve heard over the Twitterverse that YA shouldn’t be “dark,” but I disagree. YA will always show the gritty and seedy underbelly of our society. And Aftermath is one essential YA book every reader needs to read. Kelley tackles school shootings with a new perspective.
I finally took the plunge! And I am a total TOG fan. I don’t know why I doubted I would. I absolutely adored reading this book. Celaena is the badass female lead. Throne of Glass is a solid lead to a fantastic series I’m sure to love for years.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
I’m not surprised Sarah’s sequel surpassed her debut novel. But it does. Sarah cranks up the fantasy, the romance, and the heartache. You finally get to understand why Celaena is who she is. The character development is stellar. And I had such a great time reading this book. I knew about the plot twist, but that doesn’t take away from storytelling though.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
I ADORE it so much. The worldbuilding, character growth, strength, heartbreaking pasts, and beautiful writing make this third installment of the Throne of Glass series one of my favourite books of the year.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
I don’t know if I have words for the fourth book. Well, ROWELIN may be the only one I can think of. I’ve shipped them before I read the series.
This fourth installment explodes with new characters and conflicts. I can’t wait to get to the rest of the series!
This haul looks so small yet cute. Am I right? Last month, not a lot of books drew my eye. But I knew I had to grab these books from my favourite authors. And I finally bought one of Kristoff’s books. I can’t wait to read these books!
How did August treat you? Did you finally put a dent in your TBR list, read a book you’ve been dying to read, or buy your most anticipated book of the month? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to chat.
