2017 Anticipated Reads

I have a bucket load of books that I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on this year. These are my top anticipated reads for the year.

#1 A Court of Wings and Ruins.
Of course this is my number one spot. My poor heart was RUINED in the last book. I won't say to much because of major spoilers but this book is highly on my anticipated reads. I'm such ACOTAR trash till its unreal. I'm soo addicted to the fan art that I have a dedicated board on pinterest and I keep pictures in my book journal and planner. Its crazy...I know













#2 Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Now, I don't know to much about this and that is kind of haow I wanted this one to be. All I know is that it is compared to the Night Circus which I am currently reading and I like it so far. Also, this feels like a dark, magical, and intense book which I love.














#3 Strange the Dreamer by Lani Taylor

This was on my radar when I first heard about it early last year. This sounds like a great epic fantasy. Again, this one is something that I don't know to much about and that is the way I want to go in with this one as well.

#4 Roseblood by A.G. Howard

This author is known for her retelling of Alice in Wonderland Splintered Series. I didn't finish it but what I did read I really enjoyed it. Roseblood is a retelling of The Phantom of the Opera. I love the Phantom of the Opera musical and movie. When I heard about this I had to add it to my list.

#5 Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Our Dark Duet is the next installment from Monsters of Verity.  I loved this Savage Song and all its Glory. It had a Sin City vibe with monsters in it. It was also dark, intense, and very captivating. The synopisis of of Our Dark Duet seems to promise the same thing. It takes place six months after This Savage song. I needed this book the day after I finished the first one.

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…

June Wrap Up

So for this month I did really good and read a total of 11 books! Two of those books were on my original TBR and the rest I picked up as a I saw. Normally on average I read about 4 or 5 a month but my reading has really been doing good. So here is all I read for the month of June.
























Most of these were 4 stars. I read more contemporary than any genre. Home and Away is a book for School Library Journal so unfortunately I cannot share that review at this time. Have anyone of you guys read any of these topics?
