September 2018 Wrap-Up

I’ll admit it. This past couple months I’ve been slacking on posts. It’s to the point that I’ve forgotten to do a wrap-up for… I don’t even know how many months I skipped. In fact, I don’t remember the last time I did a wrap up. It’s been that long.

This month, I decided I really needed to step up my post game and made a goal to post at least once a week. Because of that, I actually have enough posts to do a wrap up!

YA Author Upcoming Release Compilation

If you’re anything like me, you are the last person to know about new releases and book news. I don’t have a lot of social media to keep up with the authors, and I don’t use the ones that I follow authors on that frequently. To be completely honest, it’s a lot to keep track of all the new releases and things that are going on so I decided to take some of my favorite and (I think) well-known YA authors and compile all their upcoming releases.

Some of the information I got off of posts on the authors’ social media or websites (which I’ll link in this post) and others I got off of Goodreads. I can’t guarantee that I will catch all the stories their working on but hopefully this will give you an overview of what to expect.

The authors I’m covering in this post are:

Cassandra Clare || Leigh Bardugo || Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff || Marie Lu
Sarah J. Maas || Tahereh Mafi|| Rainbow Rowell || Adam Silvera
Angie Thomas || Nicola Yoon

At the bottom of the post I put a timeline-ish thing that gives you an overall look on all the authors and what they’re releasing in case you don’t want to read through all the stuff I wrote.

Top 10 Books I Read in 2017

2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.

Too many books, not enough time, am I right?

It’s 2018, and a new year means a whole new load of books to be excited for!

I’ve decided to compile a list of my most anticipated releases of 2018 because I normally don’t do monthly anticipated releases.

(All the synopses in this point are taken directly from Goodreads.)

(There are some spoilers as some of these books are part of a series. I put spoiler warnings before their synopses and provided a drop down so the summaries are hidden unless you click on the drop down.)

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.

I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!

The Rules:

There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to Never Not Reading, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.

Feel free to use the GIFs used by Never Not Reading, the graphics made by Flavia the Bibliophile if you would like, both, or make and use your own visuals!

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.

omg
