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.

You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag


Well, this tag sounds cheery! When I first saw the title, I was super confused as to what it was about, so here’s a little description to clear things up:

You pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.

I was tagged by the lovely Orangutan Librarian. Make sure to check out her blog and give her some love! ❤

Anticipated Releases: 2018

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.)

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.

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….

2016 Fall Book Haul


I got a lot more books that I expected to this season. My TBR pile is a mile high and I’m in a reading slump. That hasn’t stopped me from getting more books, though. I honestly have no self-control when it comes to books.

November Wrap-Up

November is already over. What have I done this month? Absolutely nothing.

Actually, I take that back. I have done a couple things.

First, I didn’t procrastinate on *most* of the things I needed to do this month. I finished Empire of Storms (which I have been hesitant to finish because I never want it to end) and I started watching Stranger Things. I’ve heard so many great things about the TV show that I had to give it a try. I just started it, but hopefully I’ll finish it sometime in December.

Second, I actually watched a movie when it first came out. For some reason, when I want to watch a movie, I wait a year before watching it online. I never go to the movie theatre, and I have no clue why I don’t. For those who haven’t watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, you got to watch it soon because it’s really good. Just don’t expect it to be like the Harry Potter movies.

Dream Author Panel

Everyone booklover has their dream author panel containing their favorite authors. I am no exception. To be completely honest, I spend 50% of the time I’m awake daydreaming, and the majority of those dreams are about meeting my favorite authors.

Everbrite has this ongoing project that help people find events that they may be interested in, including things like author panels and book signings. When they talked about building your own dream author panel, I had to make one of my own. You can check out their website at https://www.eventbrite.com/l/conferences/.
