Wicked by Jennifer L Armentrout | Fan Cast and Playlist

I have marathon binged the whole Wicked Trilogy by Jennifer L Armentrout. Sometimes when reading certain books I am inspired to do a little something extra with the books. While reading Wicked I could picture the main characters and could definitely pick out some songs that I felt went well with the story or would play if it was made into a movie. I wanted to share those with others and see what others that have read these books think. So onto my casting and soundtrack!

5 Year Blogiversary + Q&A

I cannot believe it has already been 5 years since I started this blog! I have definitely come a long way since starting this blog, but of course I am still growing and learning within the blogging community. It was one of the best decisions I have made and I have got to know so many people in the book/ book blogging community that I am so thankful for. I have discovered new books and have grown my library by so many books! I have developed a knowledge of books and odd bookish facts that make me an annoying person to run into in a bookstore. I have been able to figure out what book a friend/co workers are talking about when they don’t know the title and have developed a first name relationship with my mailman. Reading and blogging has really saved me. Throughout the years I have been blogging a lot of different events and situations have happened in my life, especially in this past year. It was a really hard time for me and having books and the people in this community really helped me to make it through it. People I have never met in person have shown such compassion and support to me and for that I will forever be grateful. Life is rough sometimes and its nice to know that there will always be people to help pick you back up even if its just sending letter or GIFs through twitter. I appreciate all of you so much!

Why Others Read/Blog! 

@Spinesinaline“Blogging kind of came out of my obsessive need to keep track of all the books I’ve read but I’ve always loved reading! It can be a nice escape from life or just a fun way to fill some downtime!”

@PennyPebblePen“I made my first blog when I was very young. I can’t remember what it was called or my log in but it was a book blog. I made my second blog after I was hired at Waterstones because I’d written that I had one in my cover letter and after realising I couldn’t even remember its name figured that it would be safer to make a new one in order to avoid having lied in my application. Thank God my manager never asked me many questions about it! The first blogs main objective was to market my two completely unedited, preadolescent novels.Obviously, that didn’t go to plan and I took my pathetic attempt at self-publishing down and focused on just talking about what I loved.”

Nandini @Unputdownable Books “The reason I started blogging is because I initially wanted to share my writing with the world. Then I saw a few people on YouTube talking about books so I decided I needed an exclusive book blog as well. I have loved reading since as far back as my memory goes so I just wanted to share that passion with like-minded people. Also the book community has some wonderful people who I’d love to interact with, which is what encouraged me to start a book blog specifically. Coming to what reading does for me, I think I’ve had a decent life but every once in a while things gets really tough (especially right now). Books have always been the escape I need from reality. This is also why I prefer fantasy books. They keep me sane and lift my mood. Not only that, I think they’ve made me a better thinker and more compassionate person because of the varying perspectives I get to read in them. My life is definitely richer for having a reading habit and it is something I wish everyone would do.”

Q&A

@spineinaline- “What has been your favourite thing about blogging? 

My favorite thing about blogging has definitely been the community. I have met so many amazing people and there is so much support in the book and blogging community. Also learning more about books and being able to see others opinions and recommendations.

Advice for new bloggers?

My advice for new bloggers is to do it for yourself. If you are not blogging for yourself it will feel like a job and you will burn out. Create and post what you want and are passionate about. Don’t try to worry so much about what others think/do or your follower numbers/stats. If you blog and speak from the heart and about those things you love the followers will come!

What are some of your best memories through the years?

It wasn’t specified but I am assume it was meant with blogging. One of the best memories and an unreal moment was the first email I got to review a book, receiving my first unsolicited book in the mail and being able to beta read a book and offer my thoughts and suggestions to the author.

@jkimexploring- “Do you read to destress or do you have to already be calm?”

I definitely read to destress, to get lost in a world that is not my own and be able to forget the problems going on in the real world. I also struggled with insomnia a lot (still do) and so reading before I go to bed or listening to an audiobook really  helps to focus my thoughts and make it easier for me to fall asleep.

@bookishluna- “What do you think is the most over-rated book?
I do not know if I can list/pick just one. I have a rant & riddles post coming soon about this. It is something I have been struggling with lately, reading books because of the hype or the rating and not liking it as much. I know this is going to be a very unpopular opinion and one that I think I rated higher than I should have but felt like I should, which is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
What time of day do you read?
I usually read at night before bed. But on the weekend it is all throughout the day especially when listening to audiobooks while cleaning.
What are your thoughts on FanFic?
I am not really a big one for the FanFic. I am sure there is a book I have read that is FanFic, but I don’t have time to spend online just reading FanFic when I own so many books.
What is your biggest book related pet-peeve?”
I for sure think my biggest book related  pet-peeve is stickers on book covers. I ripped one of my books a couple weeks ago trying to get the sticker off. Places should start putting stickers on the back. How am I suppose to take pretty pictures with a huge ugly sticker on the cover..

Do I Read/ Continue? | Rants & Riddles

So I recently was going through my kindle and updating my goodreads with the books I own. I realized I own a lot of ebooks that I have forgotten about and that I need to be better at keeping track of these. Also I need to start reading these books because as I went through the list I noticed some books that I am intrigued by and want to read sooner than others. I also noticed something else really interesting. There are a few kindle books in which I own the 1st and/or the 1st and 2nd books. As I was looking at them in goodreads it became apparent that the books following in the series are not out yet. Now of course this comes to no surprise because you cannot expect all the books in the series to be out right away, but with these books they have been out for years. There is one book, which is a fantasy book (so you know those usually are not standalone and don’t just end with everything all wrapped up nicely) that the 1st book came out in 2013 and there is still no information about when the 2nd book will be published if it even will. The best example I have is the Gentleman Bastard Series by Scott Lynch. When I first discovered The Lies of Locke Lamora, I was so intrigued and fell in love with Lynch’s writing, world development and the overall story. I have put off reading the 3rd book forever because the publication date of the 4th one keeps getting pushed back. It would be so sad to see this awesome series just end where it is without being completed. But if I knew that before I read the 1st book I might not have picked it up at all.

I feel like this situation is much like how I feel about TV shows that got cancelled. There are some that people rave about the first few seasons, but then the show gets cancelled for whatever reason. But you want to watch because everyone says its so good. In doing so though you know that you will be left with questions that go unanswered. I have a hard time doing this. Even with completed series of tv shows, there are endings that I am unhappy with or feel like it didn’t end right, answering all the questions I had.

So I guess what I am trying to get at is, Are these books worth reading? Do I spend my time reading a story that may never be complete?

First Read of 2018 | Discussion Post

I am sitting on my bed staring at my bookshelves trying to decide what should be my first read of the new year. For some reason after everything that happened in the last year I feel like choosing this first book is such a big deal. I need to set up my year for success and positivity, both in my personal and blogging life and goals. It may seem silly, but that is just the way my brain is working right now. It has always been books that have saved me from the downs of life and I want 2018 to be full of the ups and the good things! So I decided to share my thoughts and process for how I am going about picking which book will be my first read of the New Year!

I feel like if I start with the wrong book it can cause a massive book slump because I have been reading so much lately and want to keep up with it since I have so many books I want to read and get to some books I have waited to long to read. So here are my requirements for the book I choose.

⇒ Must be around 300 pages
[ I feel like 300 pages is an average length book and a god place to start. If I start with one that is too short I will get too fast of a start and it could lead to a book slump if the next book takes too long to read. And if it is too long it will drag out and make me feel like I am off to a bad/slow start]

⇒ Must be the 1st in a series/part of a series
[ I feel like if it is in a series it will cause me to want to keep reading and continue on with the next books. One of my goals is to read/complete more series and if I start of with a standalone I feel like that is what i will continue to pick up.]

⇒ Must be a backlist book
[This is another one that is partly because it will count for one of the challenges I am participating in so I will be able to check off a box and that will keep me wanting to continue. I am such a sucker for making list to be able to cross things off and makes me feel like I am making progress. It is also because if it is an older book there will be more reviews for it and you will have a better idea if you will like it or not. There is nothing worse then starting the year off with a book that you don’t like very much]

⇒ Must be a YA
[ I read YA a lot faster and think that it is a good place to start the year.]

⇒ Needs to be fantasy
[ I have been avoiding fantasy like the plague for some reason this past year. It is one of my favorite genres and I need to read more fantasy. So I thought if my first read of the year was a fantasy it would help me with reading more fantasy in 2018. ]

⇒ Must be an author I have read before
[Again this goes with the whole knowing I will enjoy the book because I have read the author before!]

So those are my thoughts on the qualities I need in the first book I pick to read in 2018! I will let you know once I decide which one it is. I have a couple choices that fit into these categories, but still not 100% sure which one it will be.

Let me know how you are going to decide what to read as your first book of 2018 or which book you have already decided will be the first one! 

BIG BOOKS | 2018 Goals

One of the things I really want to focus on this year is big books. I have included it in my bookish bucket list for the past few years and will be included again for 2018. I consider a big book to be 500 + pages. This has been a struggle that I have faced every year because big books intimidate me because they take a lot of time and dedication.You have to be in the mood for it and know it will take a few weeks to finish.  I own a lot of them and many of them I have heard nothing, but awesome things about. All of the big books I have taken the time to  read I have not been disappointed with. So I want to put this out into the blogosphere that I want to read at leastBig Books in 2018! Here are some of the big books I own and really want to try to get to in this next year. Obviously this list is more than 6 and some are in a series with other books that belong in that series that also have more than 500 pages. These are just some of the top ones I really need to be getting to very soon! 

» Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy {864 pages} (I started this a long time ago and got halfway through but never finished it)

» Cress by Marissa Meyer {552 pages} ( I need to continue on with these series so bad)

» A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas {626 pages} ( Another series I need to continue with)

» Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K Rowling {870 pages} ( I know how can I not have read this yet. I need to finish reading this series)

» The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch {726 pages} ( I have been holding off on reading this book because I have been waiting for the release of the 4th book)

» The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson {781 pages} ( Starting to see a pattern? Another series I need to continue)

» Americanah by Chimsmsnfs Ngozi Adichie {589 pages} (I started this a few years ago and some stuff happened and I never continued)

» Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss {662 pages} ( This is one I have been meaning to read for so long)

What are some big books you need to read or want to read in 2018! 

Book Bullet Journal Planning | 2018

As we are about to begin the new year, I thought it would be fun to share some of the planning I have been doing for 2018. I have been working on developing my goals and challenges for books/reading for the 2018 year. This will develop a lot over the year and as the year progress I might add to this post or create another, but for now I am just going to share what I have so far. I have done quite a few different forms of bullet journalling in the past and get insanely jealous of those that are so good at their lettering and somehow make the mundane daily task of their lives look so cool on paper. I am hoping to get better at this but I do it because I enjoy keeping track of my book stats and goals throughout the year. It gives me another outlet to write things about books for myself other than just my blog. If you have any cool book bullet journal ideas or keep one of your own I would love to see it! Here are the pages I have been working on.

Do you use a book bullet journal or even just a book journal?

Weekend Down the Book Hole | 12/22-12/25

I thought it would be fun to do my long Christmas Weekend because I am planning on staying in all weekend, reading and blogging!

So today I worked from home, which was great and allowed me to get quite a bit of reading done today! I started prepping for my weekend holed up in my apartment working on my blog and reading. I have been working on my end of the year wrap ups and 2018 goals. Today I also decided that I want to do a Christmas Eve Read-A-Thon! As I was doing so stuff for work I started watching The Vampire Diaries, I have never read the books or watched the show before, but thought it was a good time to start. I drank way too much coffee as well today, but I was able to read close to 200 pages of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak! I have 70 pages left and plan on finishing it tomorrow!

I started this morning with a large cup of coffee and some blogging. While I have some time I want to get some post drafted and scheduled! I spent the majority of the day watching The Vampire Diaries and working on posts!

I spent the evening prepping for the 24hour read-a-thon I am going to do for Christmas Eve! I was able to clean some of my apartment while listening to some of Simon Vs.

I was also able to curl up on the couch with the kittens and finish The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Of course I had tears streaming down my face after I finished that beautifully written piece of art!

How we felt after we finished reading this book.

Christmas Eve Read-A-Thon preparations all set and ready for a day full of reading!

I made it like 2 hours past midnight before I passed out. The kittens woke me up sitting on my chest staring at my face. I was listening to some more of Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli as I was making coffee and a huge yummy breakfast! I need to check some social media things and prepare the living room for some more hours spent reading Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak.

I have hit the mid day sleepies. I need to take a break from reading and reenergize with some caffeine and food! I have been able to read almost 300 pages and its 2:00PM. I have finished a collection of cat poems and a fantasy short story. I am almost done with Simon Vs. and 100 pages into Seven Days of Us!

So I accidentally took a nap in the early evening. After waking up I made some dinner and rehydrated myself. Since then I have been reading away like crazy with the occasional social media and kitten breaks.

The book I am currently reading is Seven Days of Us  by Francesca Hornak. So far it is okay, there is drama that is of course helping me to keep moving forward. I love that it has a Christmas setting, but I am reminded just how much I dislike contemporary fiction. It just gets boring for me and is hard to read. Which is so funny because I love drama tv shows. I am just getting extremely annoyed with the characters and they are acting so dumb. I think sitting down and trying to read it all in one day was the best choice for this book because I feel like otherwise I might have given up on it because it would have just dragged. The chapters are quite short and I appreciate the multiple narrative it is definitely helping. I am currently 225 pages into this 355 page book with an hour left in the 24 hour Christmas Eve Read-A-Thon!

Started today by having my older brother FaceTime me at 1am his time as he was setting things up for my nieces and watching The Christmas Story! After we got off the phone I did a little more reading on the couch with the kittens!

I slept in a little bit today and then woke up to make myself a huge breakfast and then FaceTime the family! My big plans for the day are to watch Christmas movies and finish off all my snacks so I can get back on my healthy eating! I have watched The Grinch and I am now starting Meet Me In St. Louis, which is one of my favorite movies, especially at Christmastime!

I didn’t get around to much reading today, but I did watch a ton of Christmas movies, cuddled with the kittens and lounged enjoying my last day off for the weekend. I also spent quite a bit of time working on my blog and the Alice in Wonderland themed read-a-thon I will be hosting on my blog in Feb. for my 5 year blogiversary. I am really excited about the read-a-thon and hope that everyone joins in with me! Well I had a great weekend and it was a much needed break from life for awhile. I read a lot and got really excited about the new year. Although I had some good things happen in 2017 there was also a lot of shitty things. I need to rediscover myself again and make a fresh start. I have lots of goals for 2018 both bookish and personal. I think it is going to be a great, fun and busy year! Happy Holidays!

A.G. Howard, RoseBlood
