Dream Reading Space

Finding or creating the ideal reading place can be tricky. Any reader knows that there really isn’t a comfortable position to read books (if you have discovered one, please let me know). Sitting down for too long can make your bum go numb (it rhymed!), and lying on your back means that you’re arms will get tired from holding up the book for so long. Plus, you have a higher risk of dropping the book on your face, which isn’t a pleasant experience.

I was inspired by Arhaus.com to create my dream reading space. I had never designed a room before, but it was super fun to experiment around.

Here’s what I came up with.

Throne of Glass #6 Title Reveal!

I was in the class yesterday when my friend and fellow Sarah J. Maas fan squealed and shoved her phone in front of my face. On her phone was this:

It’s the title to the sixth book of the Throne of Glass series! Tower of Dawn! It sounds majestic. I’m expecting a lot of adventure and thrill. Although I want Aelin and the rest of her crew to be part of this story, I’m assuming they’re not going to be. I think it will be kind of like the fifth book. Chaol was briefly mentioned for a grand total of two times in 700 pages. This time, Aelin and the crew will probably be in the background of the story.

The Chaol novel was originally going to be a novella, but Sarah J. Maas wrote so much to the point they’re turning into a book. That means that there’s going to be seven full books in the series, not just six!

I’m a little scared to see what the cover is going to look like. I just hope that it’ll match the rest of the series. I’ve been collecting the hardcovers because they’re gorgeous and matching. I hope this book doesn’t screw that up.

I’ve also heard that there’s going to be some kind of Throne of Glass world guide, which will be interesting! I’m not ready for this series to end so soon. There’s only going to be one more book after this one! I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to say goodbye to the world and characters that I’m now very invested in.

Thank goodness there’s still the A Court of Thorns and Roses series to look forward to these upcoming years.

Until next time….

Dream Team Army

I’ve been thinking recently about what I wanted to write and I remembered this assignment I did in one of my classes. We had to choose an occupation and build a dream team for that job. For example, if I chose the occupation as a surgeon, I would have to build a team of a surgeon, surgeon assistant, nurses, etc.

Taking that idea, I wanted to build my dream team army with book characters if I ever happened to be in a zombie apocalypse. I not only have to consider everyone’s strengths and weaknesses, but also their ability to get along with each other. I was about to put Kaz and Rhysand together but… yeah that wouldn’t end well.

The North Texas Teen Book Festival was Overwhelming but Fun #nttbf17

So, I went to the North Texas Teen Book Festival for the first time Saturday and I have to admit, it was pretty exciting. The only other book festival I went to before was the Texas Teen Book Festival and that didn’t hold a spark compared to this one. I thought that the NTTBF was going to be a bit smaller in scale because it only covered a small portion of Texas, but surprisingly the turnout was big. The convention center that it took place in was PACKED. I had never seen so many people in one place just for books.

Book Boyfriends

It’s Valentine’s Day today where I live. I feel the romance in the air. What better way to celebrate romantic relationships by talking about (book) boyfriends?

As a fangirl, I get emotionally attached to characters that don’t exist in real life. I’d like to think I don’t have a lot of book boyfriends, but realistically, the list is endless. Book boyfriends shouldn’t be mistaken for OTPs (one true pairings), but they could be part of one.

I also made a post about my favorite OTPs, and you can click here to check it out.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
anything by Cassandra Clare
Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

Please give some suggestions because I’m desperate to discover new great books that I never knew existed!

Throne of Glass Dream Cast

It was announced a while back that the Throne of Glass series is going to be made into a TV show. Then a couple months ago they released the name of the show: Queen of Shadows. They haven’t made a cast of characters yet, but there are many TOG casts that fans made. I wanted to make my own.

Now keep in mind that I don’t know a lot of celebrities. I tend not to keep up with them because I’ve got better things to do (like read books). With my limited knowledge of actors and actresses, here is my fan cast for the upcoming Queen of Shadows TV show.

If you haven’t read up to Queen of Shadows, I highly suggest that you do not read past this point because there are some spoilers of new characters that appear.

2016 End of Year Book Survey

Holy cheese balls this survey took me a long time to finish. It was fun, though.

I didn’t know this was a thing until I saw it explode all over the blogosphere lately. I looked into it and it seemed interesting that I wanted to give it a go. This survey was created by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page Turner.

Because there were so many great books that I read in 2016, I’m going to try and not repeat the same book for each answer. There will be a couple repeats, though (a.k.a. you’re going to see me fangirling over Six of Crows a lot).

2017 Book Bucket List

enlight1

I don’t follow TBRs all that well. I just read whatever I feel like at that time. However, there are a couple books I really need to read before 2017 is over or else I’m going to not be happy with myself. Most of these book are ones that I’ve owned for a long time but haven’t read. If I don’t set goals for myself, I’m probably never going to read them. That’s why I’m making a book bucket list of 2017.
