Non-Fiction Books I Want To Read

Lately I have really been branching out on what I read and have developed more interests for a variety of books. There are quite a few books that have been on my radar or on my shelves that I really want to read. The only problem is it always seems to take me longer to read through non-fiction, but I am usually always really happy after I do. There is always so much to learn from them about life, the world and even yourself. I would love for any other recommendations people have to offer.

Top Ten Tuesday|Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016

2015 BOOKS READ-5

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016. I haven’t read many books this year, therefore this list is kind of short.

♦ Victoria Schwab

3099544

I owe a few of her books but I have yet to read any others besides This Savage Song. I absolutely adored this book and loved Schwab’s writing. I am loving forward to reading more by her soon!

♥ Kaled Hosseini 

569

I do not even know where to begin with this man. His book was brilliant, beautiful and emotional. I read Kite Runner and could not control my emotions. There is such a personal touch to the writing. I am making it my mission to read the rest of his published work in 2017.

♦ Brandon Sanderson 

38550

This man is a writing phenomenon and a god of fantasy writing. This is another author I have heard nothing but amazing things about. I also want to work on reading all of his published works. There are so many and he puts out at least 1 a year!

What are the best new to you authors you read this year?

 

Top Ten Tuesday| Holiday Gift Guide For Newcomers to New Adult

2015 BOOKS READ-5

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Holiday Gift Guide for those trying to break into New Adult.

 

 

17900545

♦ Rule by Jay Crownover

This is a great book that starts off a series based on a group of friends and their relationships. The story of the relationship between Rule and Shaw was not an insta love or easy one. There was depth and lots of hot moments.  

24954150

♦ Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren 

This book has not only great romantic relationships but also great friendships and sibling relationships. It had a lot going on with college and football and followed the different characters lives.

18505845

♦ All Lined Up (Rusk University) by Cora Carmack

I have really enjoyed all of the books out in this series so far. It involves college and football and hot guys whats not to love! With this series much like the Marked Men series focuses on one relationship each book but you learn about other characters and they reappear throughout the series.

16096824

♦ A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

This is a great transition into New Adult. I think it falls into the category between YA and NA. It is fantasy and a beautiful read. The writing is amazing and the story is even better. It has fae, hot guys and is a retelling of beauty and the beast.

I want it that way

♦ I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre 

This book reminded me of my time in college and hit on so many aspects of life that happen during those year in school, it provided even more evidence that some guys with children are just too adorable (Dilf status!)

What books would you recommend for people holiday shopping?

Rory Gilmore’s Reading List

So recently I have been rewatching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I have been obsessed and in love with this show since it first came out. I love Rory and love that she has a deep love for reading. I have been feeling like her a lot lately with the amount of books I have been carrying around with me. And the struggle to find a purse big enough to always carry a book is an issue. I saw this list awhile ago and realized that I need to read more books from this list. I personally think it is important to read classics and be able to talk about them. Although I sometimes struggle to get through them because to be honest they aren’t as fast and easy to read like Young adult books, but I need to push myself because I have only read 36 out of 339 books. I know there are some of these I will never read, but I would really like to work on read more from this list! (The ones bolded are those I have read)

MONSTOBER TBR LIST

I have been in a weird reading mood lately. But I am hoping that October will help me! I love October and Halloween and everything else surrounding this time of year. This TBR list might seem again outrageous and insane, but I want to show all my options. These are the majority of my horror/spooky/october appropriate reads. I don’t want to be contained to a set list, but definitely want to theme read this month! The only problem that might arise is as well as being a book addict I love movies! And October is the best month for movies! I love slashers and horror and everything Halloween themed! I will have to juggle my time between reading and movies plus my job this month so it will be a busy one! I will also say sorry for the bad quality of the picture, it was really hard to get them all in the picture and my cat decided she wanted in it too!

[ This was recommended to me. It is about a boy who was cloned from Jeffery Dahmer’s DNA!]

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
[ I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn last month and absolutely loved it! I have heard from some that this book is just as dark and even better!]

172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
[ I have been wanting to read this for some time and have been saving it for this month! Everyone says it is extremely creepy and its just what I need]

Asylum by Madeleine Roux
[ This seems like it will be a creepy read. The sequel just came out and I am excited to see how and where these books go!]

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
[I have but this aside for some time. It looks so intriguing and makes me think a little of the movie The Village. I hope I like it and it provides to be a good October read]

The Ritual by Adam Nevill
[ I dont remember when I got this but I figured it would be good to throw in an adult horror book as well. Four men lost in the woods, what more do I need to say]

♠ Come Little Children by D. Melhoff
[ When I first saw this book title I instantly thought of Hocus Pocus (The song that Sarah sing to the children) It is about a serial killer, children deaths and a girl who works in a morgue.]

♠ Dark Lover by J.R. Ward
[ So this has made multiple apperances on my TBR list and I am determined to read it this month. It is about vampires and romance to switch it up in a mix or horror books!]

Lailah by Nikki Kelly
[ This is a vampire YA that is coming out this month and that I received as an ARC. I would really like to get to it and have heard some great things about it so far!]

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
[ I thought it would be good to add in something paranormal to break up all of the horror books I am hoping to read. This is a romance about demons and angels]

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
[ Who doesn’t like a ghost story! I have heard this has a supernatural-esque feel and excited to read it and possibly the sequel this month]

 

What are you planning on reading this month? Do you have any awesome recommendations for October?
