Hello everyone and Happy Independence Day to America! My plans today basically consist of barbeque’s, hanging out in my grandfather’s gazebo and picking up a good book. I saw this tag going around on booktube, and I decided to just try it and include it as one of my blog posts, so let’s just get right into it!

I actually DNF’d this one, but I still think it counts!

As She Fades by Abbi Glines

OKAY! This one had a huge and I mean HUGE plot twist towards the end that literally had given me a headache. I was screaming, I was yelling at this book I was so messed up. If anyone has ever read this book, they know exactly what I’m talking about. I had no idea where the book was going and then literally BAM, it showed me any possible thought I had was totally out of the question.

(6) 3 books you want to read with the colors red, white, and blue

Book Reader Problems Tag

Hello everyone! Today I’m doing a really fun tag I saw over at The Nameless Book Blog. I read through their questions and I have a lot of these issues, and I’m sure you guys do too! That’s why I’m inviting everyone who’s willing to answer these questions open and honestly to join me in participating in this tag! Let’s get on to the questions shall we?

(1) You have 20,000 books on your TBR, how in the world do you decide what to read next?

Honestly, I’m a total mood reader. So it basically just goes off that, unless I have a book I really need to get a review out for.

(2) You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?

Usually, by the halfway point I’m committed. Even if I’m not liking it, I try and stick with it. If I DNF a book, it’s at about 50-100 pages in. After that, I’m committed.

(3) The end of the year is coming and your behind on your reading challenge. Do you try to catch up? How?

A good holiday read-a-thon is always fun at the end of the year right? Last year, I was so behind though I kind of just aimed for 20 books and just aimed higher for this year. My goal is 40 for the year and I’m 75% done with it soooo, it might get raised.

(4) The covers of a series doesn’t match, how do you cope?

I cope just fine. It doesn’t bother me too much actually. I know it bothers other people but it really doesn’t get to me as much. I’m not willing to re-purchase a book just so the covers can match on my bookshelves lol.

(5) Everyone and their mother loves a book you don’t. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?

Twitter. That’s what Twitter is for. There is always someone out there, who shares the same feelings with you on a certain book. Trust me.

(6) Your reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?

This has actually only happened to me one time, and luckily it was really sunny out that day. I was at my brother’s little league game and I luckily had sunglasses on. Try the sunglasses trick, it worked for me.

(7) The sequel to a book you loved has just came out but you forgot what happens. Do you re-read the first book?

I have a strict no re-read rule. There’s just way too many books to read in general that I don’t want to waste my time. In my eyes, If I can’t really remember it, I probably didn’t actually enjoy it that much.

(8) You don’t want anyone to borrow your books, how do you say no?

Just say no. My 13 year old cousin constantly asks to borrow books, makeup, old stuffed animals, purses, you name it. ‘Borrow’ means keep, which is fine!, but unless I don’t want that book, my books are strict on a no borrow mode, unless I know they are a really responsible person.

(9) How do you get out of a reading slump?

Just keep trying to switch reading moods. You may think your in a contemporary/romance mood, but pick up a thriller, see if that kind of kick-starts anything for you.

(10) How many books do you end up buying?

I buy about 3-5 books a month. Which is pretty good seeing my TBR is 130 books deep.

(11) After purchase, how long do those books sit on your TBR shelf?

Depends on the book, but most likely anywhere from a month to two months. There are a few books though that I bought like last summer and whoops, I don’t even have any plans on reading them! Haha.

Avengers Book Tag

I saw this tag going around and then I finally saw Arin do a wonderful post that really made me want to participate. I love the Marvel movies and no, I have not seen Endgame yet, but I have seen a really good amount of the movies. I’m actually kind of scared to go see Endgame because I have heard some rumors about how it ends.. and I’m not excited to see if they are true. That being said, DON’T SPOIL THE ENDGAME IN THE COMMENTS. Now onto the post:

Iron Man: A Book That Made You Laugh Out Loud

Image result for the last black unicorn

The Last Black Unicorn – Tiffany Haddish

Although I kinda gave this a low rating, it still made me laugh a bunch of times and I’m glad I read it.

Captain America : A Book With A Positive Message

Kiss Me In Paris – Catherine Rider

Although this is a cheesy, lovey romance.. there was a pretty big meaning mixed in with the romance. We followed a girl named Serena who goes to Paris to relive her parents honeymoon due to her father’s passing. She goes to kind of relive it for her mom to give to her as a Christmas present, but at the end she kind of realizes like, you can’t relive something so special for someone else. She learned she had to make her own experiences for herself, not for her mom.

Thor: A Book With A Character Whose Strength You Admire

Sadie – Courtney Summers

Although I also didn’t really care for this book.. Sadie is such a strong character and she really had to go through a lot. Her strength was extremely admirable.

Hulk: A Book That Makes You Angry

Image result for dorothy must die

Dorothy Must Die – Danielle Paige

I simply cannot stand this book. Just looking at the cover makes me mad. This book made me mad for many reasons… bad writing, horrible storyline, but the MAIN ISSUE: The whole plot twist was literally put onto the back cover. I read the whole entire book, just to find out the major plot twist and end to the book, was on the back cover. Ya know what, I am just going to stop talking about this book before I go ahead and turn myself green lol.

Black Widow: A Book With A Kick-Ass Female Protagonist

Undead Girl Gang – Lily Anderson

I thought Mila was such a bad ass female character. One, she’s a witch. Two, she brings her friends back to life. Three, she’s just so tough and an amazingly written character.

Hawkeye: A Book That is Underrated that People Should Pay More Attention To

Romanov – Nadine Brandes

Okay, so this book isn’t even out yet, I get it. BUT, I don’t think it’s getting enough hype for being only a few days from it release date. I loved this book when I read it, I really want people to love it when it comes out. It needs to be fully appreciated when it comes out May 7th.
