WINTER COMES OUT TOMORROW

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

TOMoRROW. IT COMES OUT TOMORROW. Just think, there is only one more sleep before I am holding this thing in my hands. It’s been a long year and a half and I am so ready to read this book.

All 832 glorious pages. (Thank you Marissa for making it a big one ūüôā ¬†)

This is the last book. I’m pretty sad this wonderful series is over, but it sure has been a great journey. I have grown to love these characters and I can’t wait to see their last hurrah.

Not only are we getting all the characters, but we are also getting Winter. we have seen glimpses of her in the past and her childhood in Fairest, so I’m pretty interested to see how her character plays a role in all of this.

This post was very incoherent. I just needed to write something down before I read it tomorrow. I’m so excited, I’m jumping up and down on the inside! There will be a review of this glorious book up one day, but there is a large possibility that there will be a lengthy, ramble post where I talk about everything…which I’m okay with.

I have hyped this book up so much that it makes me nervous, but really, who could it disappoint! As long as Marissa doesn’t pull a Veronica Roth, I’m fine!

Hope everyone has a great time reading this book!

AHHHH IT COMES OUT TOMoRROW. AS IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS FROM NOW.

Before I do all the regular stuff, can we jus take a minute and appreciate that Winter is coming out in 2 days. 2 days. I have waited for this book forever and it is finally here. I know lately I haven’t had time to read, but I will read this one. I don’t care what it takes.

My Own Book Choice Awards

You may have seen my Goodreads Choice Awards post where I had failed to check if there were more than two categories I could show you guys. However, after I was done voting, I had an idea. What if I hosted my own little Book Choice Awards with narrower categories. I’m currently investigating the best way to do this, so if you have any ideas, let me know down in the comments!

  • I have a lot of candy from Halloween still. It’s like candy heaven.
  • Forever wishing I could get an ARC of a book…literally any book.

My 2015 Goodreads Choice Awards Votes

It’s that time of year again…The Goodreads Choice Awards! I always love this time of the year where you can look back at the year of releases and vote for your favorites. It’s a great way of remembering what all came out that year and what amazing books you were able to read. I love voting so much, I decided I would share it with you! Of course I am only doing the YA/MA categories, but goodreads has it open for all books.

If you want to vote yourself, here is the link: Goodreads Choice Awards YA

For Overall Best Young Adult Fiction I Chose…

All the Bright Places

ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Niven

This book came out at the beginning of the year and I still think about it. This was definitely  my favorite contemporary of the year, and I really hope it wins!

For Overall Best Young Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy I Chose…

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

WINTER by Marissa Meyer

THAT’S RIGHT I VOTED FOR A BOOK I HAVEN’T EVEN READ YET! This was actually pretty tough because Queen of Shadows was one of the choices. However, I have so so so so so much hope and excitement for this book I want it to blow me away. Also it’s coming out in three days. THREE. I can’t take it!

For Overall Best Middle Grade/Children’s I chose…

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)

MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD by Rick Riordan

How can you not vote for a Riordan book? I have every year. I actually just started this book on my kindle the other day, and I love it already.

 

So that’s that! To be honest, before I made this post, I thought there was more individual categories, but there were only 3 I could vote for ūüė¶ However, it gave me the idea of making my own book choice awards where I could narrow down the topic more. Do you guys think that sounds fun? Let me know down in the comments!

 

How to Catch Up on Reading Goals

With it being the beginning of November, we only have 2 more months left in 2015! I know it’s crazy! That means that everyone is only 2 months away from their yearly reading goal. Some people may be ahead or on track, but this post is for those who are behind and want to catch up as much as they can. I myself am pretty bad about logging which books I have read, so I’m not sure how many books I am behind (but I am sure it’s a lot with this past month!) Here are some of the ways I plan on reading as much as I can so I can add a few more books to my yearly total.

  1. Always have a book on you

  2. Read every chance you get

  3. Dedicate time everyday to reading 

  4. Make a reading routine/calendar

  5. Read before you go to bed

  6. Try audio books when you can’t physically sit down and read

  7. Pick some shorter books

  8. Don’t read the 1000 page book!

  9. Pick books that interest you

  10. Try marathoning series to get as many books as you can

  11. Utilize weekends and break you have during the month

 

I hope these eleven tips help someone! If you really want to reach your goal, think about the books you are choosing to read. If you hate reading classics, don’t pick up something like War and Peace. Think about what you want to read that you can read fast, and then read as much¬†as you can! Completing your goal feels really awesome, so try as hard as you can!

November Goals

Hey! Since I know this month will be dreadfully busy, I decided to set myself some goals. The last two weeks in October I had no time or motivation. I would want to write out some posts, but I felt guilty that I had been doing so already. To avoid the blogging slump, I have decided to set some November goals. This may be a new monthly thing I do when I am busy, because it gives me something to work toward and achieve.

Since I am starting fresh with a new month, I am not letting any of my past failures get me down. These first goals are small, just so I can work my way back up to where I would like to be.

1. Three posts a week (at LEast) 

I just want to get back in the habit of posting more. Even if it is just a weekly round-up, I want to get back in the habit of doing so.

2. Read three books (at least) 

You guys don’t even know how much I have missed reading. I haven’t finished a book in while. I already know this month is booked, but I should still be able to get three books in.

3. Read before bed

I used to dedicate time before bed to read, nad it’s where I got a lot of my pages in. Whether it’s 10 minutes or an hour, I would love to start doing this again.

Those are my three goals. Like I said, these are extremely easy, but it’s just my way of getting back in the groove of things. We shall see!
