ACOTAR #4 Title Reveal!

I don’t really check my phone in the morning or even during the day since I’m at school and my phone doesn’t work inside the school. So when I got home and opened up my Instagram to see Sarah J. Maas’ new post, I was like:

I’m a little late to this but Sarah J. Maas released the title of the fourth ACOTAR book! I feel like a lot of us were really confused as to what would happen next after the third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin, as Sarah J. Maas said that the last three books would be set in the same world as the first three but follow a different set of characters.

If you want more information about that, I made a post here.

Anyway, without delay, here is the title of the next ACOTAR book!

(Forewarning: there might be teeny, tiny spoilers beyond this point so if you haven’t caught up on the series yet I would not continue.)

Un-To-Be-Read

I was recently going through my Goodreads TBR list to see what I could potentially read to get out of my reading slump and I realized that there are a lot of books that I have on there that I have no interest in reading anymore. Some of the books on the list I added several years ago and never got around to reading.

Because of the large amount of books on my TBR list that I don’t want to read anymore, I thought it would be high time that I take them off. I compiled a list of books I’m going to un-TBR (is there another term for taking books off your TBR shelf?).

Books I’m Ashamed I Haven’t Read Yet

I’m a slow reader. On top of that, my mind is super picky on what it wants to read and when. On top of that, school has started and I have little to no free time to read. That being said, I have not read a lot of books that everyone else is the YA community seems to have read. It seems like I’m the only one who hasn’t read these books yet, and I feel slightly embarrassed, especially since I own physical copies of most of the books.

I’m hoping that by acknowledging that I haven’t read these book, I’ll motivate myself to read them soon.

First Impressions of Books

People always say “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but let’s be completely honest, we still do it. Literally. Whenever I’m at a bookstore or shopping online, the reason I’ll pick up a book is to read the blurb if the cover catches my attention.

Now, most of the time, the covers are not deceiving, but some of them are. I’m going to look at covers of books I’ve never read and try and guess what the book is about. Then I’ll look at the blurb to see how accurate I was.

Let’s do this! Continue reading

YA Novels with Male Protagonists

I read a lot of young adult novels. In fact, 95% of what I read is in the young adult genre. What I’ve noticed over the years is that there aren’t a lot of male protagonists. Sure, there are some male main characters, but most of the time the story isn’t focused on them. Often times it is a girl narrating the story or, if it’s in third person, the narrator focuses on the girl more than the guy.

We need more male protagonists in the YA genre. Everyone should have a protagonist they can relate to, and that means boys as well. I came up with a list of books that have a male main characters. The sad thing is, I had a lot of trouble compiling a list because there are so few books with male protagonists that I’ve read. This goes to show that either 1) I’m more interested in books with female protagonists or 2) the world needs more YA books with male main characters.

Kiss, Marry, Kill: Throne of Glass edition

I’m bored. Let’s play a game with the Throne of Glass characters.

What game will that be, you ask?

The only game I can think of at the moment: Kiss, Marry, Kill!

For those who don’t know what this game is, it’s basically where you choose three people (in my case, characters) each round to kiss, marry, and kill. Fairly simple. To amp up the stakes, I put names of Throne of Glass characters in a jar and drew three for each round. Whichever three I choose are the ones I have to use.

Online Book Stores

I love books. I love discounts and deals. I find it fun to search for a good deal on a certain book I either need or want. Most of the time, that means I have to do my searching online because it’s hard to find books at a discounted price without having to drive more than half an hour.

That’s why I decided to compile all the online stores that sells books in case someone else is also looking for great places to buy books at a more discounted price. (Just a disclaimer, but I’m not sponsored by anyone to write this. I just really wanted to compile a list of websites where I get most of my discounted books.)

Fictional Friend Crushes

School is around the corner, and that means new classes and new people to meet. Comparing my schedule with all my friends, it turns out that I don’t have any classes with them. That means I’ll be needing to make some new friends to get through this school year. As an introvert, at the beginning of the school year, I have some people that I have a friend crush on. Then that got me thinking what it would be like if I were friends with fictional characters.

This list does not limit itself to just book characters. It also includes TV show and movie characters.

Fictional Foods I Want to Try IRL

Do you ever have those instances where you’re reading a book and a character is really enjoying some food and you feel kind of jealous? And then while you’re reading about food, you get hungry but all you want is that food that the character is eating? Yeah, it happens to me all the time.

Also, I just really love food. I mean, who doesn’t? Especially bread. I know it’s super bad for you if you eat too much of it but I love the fluffiness and smell and-

Okay I’ll stop. I’m getting hungry.

Favorite Villains

Heroes are usually celebrated by everyone for their heroism (obviously) and overall awesomeness, but where’s the love for the villains? Although they are bad beings, I can’t help but love them. Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.

Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.
