The Sunday Post is a weekly meme created by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It is a way to recap posts and talk about what is coming in the future. Check out the website Caffeinated Book review here for more information: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

Here are my Posts from this week:

  • Reader Problems Tag: A tag that explains a readers life in just a few questions.
  • Top Ten Tuesday Freebie Day:  There was no assigned Top Ten Tuesday this week, so I decided to pick an old topic. I chose “Top Ten Authors I Haven’t Read Yet)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

News

  • You are probably wondering where the Most Anticipated Books of 2015 post is. I got all the books together (16 in total as of right now) and I started making Part 1. The post was nearly done, I just had to add some finishing touches, and when I went to edit, it only had my first line of the post. Apparently, I didn’t hit the save button before I closed the window out. Anyways, I will definitely be putting that post out sometime this week.

Currently Reading

  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare: I am reading this slowly and just a few scenes at a time. I am almost done with Act 2 and I am enjoying it so far!

I also finished reading Macbeth this week! It was really good and I was able to finish my Monthly TBR Jar Challenge! The theme was to “read a classic” and I did.

Upcoming Posts

  • High School Musical Tag: I saw this on someone’s blog and I just have to do it. This will be the best tag yet.
  • First Half Most Anticipated 2015 books: My reasoning on why this is late is above, but it’ll be here this week!
  • Upcoming February Releases
  • Book Haul!

Today is actually my birthday! I already got some books for my birthday, and I will include them in the Book Haul Post!

Okay, so I’m going to divide this into winter-themed books and then just normal books I want to read during the winter season.

Winter-Themed Books

1. Let it Snow by John Green: This is a combination of short stories that I am really excited to read. Around the Christmas season, it is easy to read cute Christmas stories, so I am super excited to read this one!

2. My True Love Gave to Me by pretty much everyone: Alright so you may have seen me going on and on about this book a little book ago. Someone, I have been able to restrain myself from reading it, so now I can read it during December! I am beyond stoked fr this book, and there are so many amazing authors I can’t wait to read from.

3. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan: I haven’t looked much into this book, but I bought it when it was on sale a while ago. Since then, I have heard great things about this Christmas-y read, and I am now really ready to start reading this one!

Normal Books

4. Throne of Glass: This is the next book I am reading!

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: On my list of series I want to read!

6. Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Been waiting for last one to marathon series soon!

 

7. Angelfall by Susan Ee: Not sure what this series is about, but I want to find out.

8. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Picked this up the other day and loving it so far!

9. Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold: This was a gift given to me, and I have been waiting to read it some time.
That’s all I could think of right now! I’m sure more books will pop up later.

I have actually finished up a lot of my favorite series in the past year. Divergent ended last year, Anna and the French Kiss, and Heroes of Olympus. This took some more thinking, but there are definitely some books that I can’t wait for!

 

 

 

1. Winter by Marissa Meyer

Right now we don’t know much about this book except that they are on the moon, and we have a new main character named Winter and she is supposed to show the Snow White fairy tale. Now if you haven’t noticed, I love the Lunar Chronicles, and I can not wait to read this book! If you haven’t read the first 3 yet, don’t worry, we still have a year of waiting. 😥

 

2. The Heir by Kiera Cass

Awhile ago, Kiera announced that she wasn’t quite done with Maxon and American just yet. This story follows their twins and the new selection. (Also the cover of this book is my favorite of the whole series!)

 

3. P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) by Jenny Han

I read the first book last month, and thought it was super adorable. I thought it had just ended the way it did, but then I found out there was a sequel coming!

 

 

4. The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick

This is the second book of My Life Next Door. I know this is story follows TIm more, and I am excited to see where it goes!

 

5. Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Yep, I managed to put the Lunar Chronicles on here twice! I really am excited for this short story, and it tells more about Levana! It comes out in 2-3 months and I can’t wait for more Marissa Meyer writing!

 

That’s all I could really think of right now. Now that I’m starting into more fantasy series, I’ll probably find more books I am excited for. I know already that the 4th Throne of Glass books is coming out next year and I’ve seen some stuff on a 3rd Fifth Wave book. So, what are you looking forward to in the book world?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I would like to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. They create all kinds of super awesome list ideas that we all get to participate in. Check out their website: http://www.brokeandbookish.com/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html

November 4: Top Ten Books I want to Reread (or would like to)

  1. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling: I have not actually went through and reread all of the books of the Harry Potter series. This is not acceptable. My goal is to dedicate a time to do this, but there are so many other books I want to read too!

 

  1. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson: I read this books a few months ago and it probably made it into my top 10 favorite books ever. It is such a powerful and dark book and I would love to go back and reread it again.

 

  1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: I really want to reread this and I definitely will before the next book comes out, which I am so excited for. I never would have thought I would have loved a sci-fi fairy tale remake, but it is seriously one of the greatest things ever, and I have to re-experience it.

 

  1. The Giver by Lois Lowry: It’s been awhile since I read this for the first time, and I still haven’t seen the movie. Before I see it though, I would love to reread it so I can do a movie adaptation comparison to the book.

 

  1. The One by Kiera Cass: I read this in May thinking that it was the last book, but suddenly Kiera is adding on some more!

 

  1. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan: This is my absolute favorite book in the Percy Jackson series and I would love to read the perfect example of how to tie things up at the end of a series.

 

  1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: This is an amazing book that is very short, and I would love to go back and reread it.

 

That’s really all I could think of. I didn’t add books like Divergent or Hunger Games because I actually have reread those, and I don’t see myself doing that anytime soon. I normally don’t reread books a lot unless they were just super good or the next book/movie was coming out.

Oct 28: Top Ten Characters to Dress up like for Halloween

This is a meme created by the Broke and the Bookish. They come up with some super cool topics, so check them out at their blog:  http://www.brokeandbookish.com/

toptentuesday

    1. Hermione Granger: This would be a great costume, because I think it would be super cool to wear robes, have a wand, and talk in a British accent all night, but maybe that’s just me.
    2. Tris Prior: Not going to lie, I’ve actually have dressed up like her for occasions, and let me tell you, it is super fun wearing training gear with drawn on tattoos.
    3. Elizabeth Bennet: This would actually be a very fun costume to put together, especially because it is in a different time period. IT would be like you were pretending to be part of a different generation, which is pretty neat.
    4. Anyone from The Hobbit/LOTR: I mean those guys just have the best little costumes, but I think the best one would be dressing up as Gollum. It would actually be kind of a freaky costume, because if I saw someone crouched down with a ring muttering precious, I would be kind of scared.
    5. Dorothy: I mean this one is pretty easy, but it would be pretty easy get a dress and some red slippers, and if you really want to get serious, maybe even a little dog.
    6. Harry Potter:  This honestly could be for anyone, because really who doesn’t want to be Harry Potter.
    7. Katniss Everdeen: Yeah, I’ve seen this. A lot. But it is simple and people recognize Katniss’ very quickly.
    8. A Librarian: I mean this is actually a character (I’m sure there is a character but I don’t know anyone) but I mean this person does work with books? Does it count?
    9. Cath: Cath is just a basic fangirl, so some of us could just wear our normal day outfit. However if you want to be more like Cath, a simple “Keep Calm and Carry On Simon” shirt would be easy enough.
    10. Disney Princesses/Fairy Tale Characters: Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldie Locks, all of these are stories, and some of these characters would be very cool to dress up as.
