Coffee Book Tag

Hey Guys! I will be doing the ‘Coffee Book Tag’ today! I am not really a “Coffee-Drinker”, but, I really want to try out this tag and I would probably make a cup of coffee for myself later.

BLACK: NAME A SERIES THAT’S TOUGH TO GET INTO BUT HAS HARDCORE FANS.

Image result for lord of the rings book set

Lord of the Rings is one of the hardest book series to get into- at least, to me. Unlike The Hobbit series which I loved, some of the scenes in the Lord of the Rings series are kind of boring, in my personal opinion. 

PEPPERMINT MOCHA: NAME A BOOK THAT GETS MORE POPULAR DURING THE WINTER OR A FESTIVE TIME OF YEAR.

Image result for let it snow john green

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I find that Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle gets more popularity during the festive time of the year, because of the title, you know? SNOW.

HOT CHOCOLATE: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S BOOK?

Image result for geronimo stilton book cover

When I was younger, Geronimo Stilton was one of my all time favourite author and books. I believe that many children around the world love this author and his works!

DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO: NAME A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM START TO FINISH.

8490112

Daughter Of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor definitely kept me on the edge of my seat from the start to finish.

(All the books that was written by Laini Taylor kept me on the edge of my seat because her books/stories are fabulous!) 

And please read the ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ trilogy if you have yet to read it.

May TBR

Hey Guys! I am actually quite proud of myself because I finished reading 3 books last month which were: The Wheel Mages by Aimee Davis, The Ghost Of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick and Chewy Noh and The Fall Of The Mu-Dang by Tim Learn. I will be linking the reviews down below:

So, without further ado, let’s get into my May TBR!

1. King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

ed9afc6662270ec77c67fbdfa710611a

(BEAUTIFUL COVER!)

*Do not read King’s Cage synopsis if you have not read Red Queen!*

Synopsis:

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.


I will be reading this book with my friend over at @thegeekybookgirl. Feel free to join us if you want to and you guys should totally check out her Instagram page! Her pictures are marvelous!


2. Select by Marit Wiesenberg

33830806

Synopsis:

Coming from a race of highly-evolved humans, Julia Jaynes has the perfect life. The perfect family. The perfect destiny. But there’s something rotten beneath the surface—dangerous secrets her father is keeping; abilities she was never meant to have; and an elite society of people determined to keep their talents hidden and who care nothing for the rest of humanity. So when Julia accidentally disrupts the Jaynes’ delicate anonymity, she’s banished to the one place meant to make her feel inferior: public high school.

Julia’s goal is to lay low and blend in. Then she meets him—John Ford, tennis prodigy, all-around good guy. When Julia discovers a knack for reading his mind, and also manipulating his life, school suddenly becomes a temporary escape from the cold grip of her manipulative father. But as Julia’s powers over John grow, so do her feelings. For the first time in her life, Julia begins to develop a sense of self, to question her restrictive upbringing and her family prejudices. She must decide: can a perfect love be worth more than a perfect life?


Actually, I am currently this book and I am very confused with the characters and the world. But anyways, I will finish up this book soon.  


3. Strange the dreamer by Laini Taylor

images (6)

(GORGEOUS COVER!)

Synopsis:

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.


I HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR THIS BOOK! I love the ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ trilogy by Laini Taylor and therefore, I have high hopes! 


This is the end of my May TBR post!  I hope you all enjoyed it and follow me with your email/wordpress account to get notifications when I post a new article! Bye!

March Book Haul

Hey Humans! I am coming to you all with a mini book haul today! Some of the books are sent by authors and I purchased the others myself. So, without further ado, let’s get into it!

1. The Wheel Mages (Changing Tides #1) by Aimee Davis

20170331_221652[1]

Synopsis:

Alena Kozlov is one of the last of a dying kind. As the first water mage to be inducted into the Sanctum in over fifty years, she has the opportunity to help the old order destroy a band of rebel mages who threaten the principles the Sanctum is founded upon.

Blinded by loyalty to the Sanctum and love for her master, Alena and three other mages set out to investigate the rebels, but the more she discovers, the less she understands.

Confronted with hard truths about the Sanctum she once believed in and the corruption she sees within it, Alena must make one of the most difficult decisions of her life: follow the path she’s trained for or leave the Sanctum behind.

Whatever the answer, she knows one thing for sure—the old Sanctum saying is true: It is a rocky road she must travel.


Thank you Aimee for sending me your book for review!

I am currently reading this book and it’s so good! 82 pages in and I am loving it! I will be finishing this book soon!


2. City Of Bones (The Mortal Instrument #1) by Cassandra Clare 

20170331_222025[1]

Synopsis:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…


I will be reading this book soon! I really love ‘The Infernal Devices’ series. So, I have a very high expectation for ‘The Mortal Instrument’ series.

(Guys, the cover art is gorgeous)


3. City Of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare

20170331_222222[1]

Synopsis:

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?


This is the second book in ‘The Mortal Instruments’ Series!

(Again, the cover art is gorgeous. But I prefer the UK’s book cover more than the US)


4. Chewy Noh and the Fall of the Mu-dang (Chewy Noh #1) by Tim Learn

20170331_222544[1].jpg

Synopsis:

Chewy Noh has problems. He was born with them. Two weeks after his birth, the family fortune-teller saw bad things in his future…and she was right. The school bully hates him and will stop at nothing to get rid of him. His mother suddenly can’t get out of bed, complaining of horrible headaches. And worst of all, the secret his grandmother is hiding may be at the root of it all. But why should he worry? He’s a superhero with a power no one’s ever seen before!


Thank you Tim for sending me your book for review!

This is a middle grade fantasy and it sounds super interesting! I can’t wait to read this book! 


5. Chewy Noh and the Phantasm of Winter (Chewy Noh #3) by Tim Learn

20170331_222611[1].jpg

Synopsis:

Chewy Noh has many problems. Besides his mom becoming a mu-dang—a Korean fortune-teller possessed by his dead grandmother who can read minds—the school bully, Kent, is still on the warpath to get Chewy kicked out of school. With his secret ability to win at everything, none of this bothers him until he starts disappearing for no reason while a mysterious force attacks his fellow students, and he must scramble to figure out what’s going on before he becomes its next and final victim.


Once again, Thank you Tim for sending me your book for review!

I can’t wait to start the ‘Chewy Noh’ Series! Both of the books sound really interesting and unique! Again, I can’t wait to read it!


This is the end of my mini book haul! I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I do and follow me with your email/wordpress account to get notifications when I post a new article! Well, I will see you guys next time, bye!
