Most Anticipated March Releases!

I did a post like this last month and really enjoyed picking my top releases for the month so I thought I'd continue doing it this month! 

Just a couple things: 

I'll include a brief synopsis of most of the books listed but if it's part of a series I'll leave out the synopsis to avoid spoilers.

Books marked with a "~" are ones that have been sent to me to review.

These aren't in any particular order and there are only 4 books this month.

1. The Great Hunt ~

When a giant beast starts terrorizing the people in her fathers kingdom Princess Aerity must give up her chance at true love and offer her hand in marriage as a prize to the first man to take down the beast. 

Honestly the synopsis isn't enough to make me want to read this book but its by one of my new favorite authors so of course I have to pick it up and give it a shot! 

Release date is March 8th 

2. Wink Poppy Midnight

I have no idea what this book is about, even the Goodreads synopsis doesn't offer much insight. BUT Jesse (on booktube) was talking about this earlier this month and when he showed the cover I just knew I had to add it to my list! 

Release date is March 22nd

3. Shades Of Darkness 

As far as I can tell this is about a girl trying to escape her past at a new High School, only to have bodies start piling up left and right. There may be magic? A strange darkness she has to battle? I'm not sure but I'll find out!

Release date is March 8th

4. Lady Midnight 

In. LA. 
The end. 

I already have my copy of Lady Midnight, I was lucky enough to be able to go to a release party and get it signed but I have not read it yet! As soon as I get my hands on the Shadowhunter Academy novellas then I'll start this beauty!

Not near as long a list as last month but lets be honest, I took way to long to write this post and I almost didn't do one this month. So I guess 4 is better than none? 

I will be better next month! 


Until next time,

Stacking The Shelves (42)

"We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in the physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! 

If you're anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles."

This week I was sent six new books to review and I (thankfully) didn't purchase any new books!

I don't know much about this, as far as I can tell it's a mystery/thriller about a boy with dark family secrets. 

It comes out June 7th

In-between Days

A summer beach read about first- and second- loves. SOLD!

Release date is August 30th

The Last True Love Story 

A cross country road trip, in a stolen car, with your Grandfather who you essential kidnapped from his assisted living facility. 

I can already tell I'm going to love this book.

Release date is September 13th 

Scary Out There 

This is pretty much a collection of short stories meant to scare the crap out of you. I probably won't sleep for a week after reading this but hopefully it'll be worth it! 

It's being released August 30th

Tone Deaf 

"His world is music. Her world is silent." 


Release date is May 3rd and I don't even care if it's the 20th book I have to read in May because it sounds amazing!

Release date is June 7th! 

The end! 

Until next time,

Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Here is my selection for the week:

Cue dramatic pause... 

So this comes out next week- 

But not really because I'm still reading City of Heavenly Fire...

BUT I WILL finish it by the 9th because that is not only when I will get my copy of Lady Midnight but it's also the day I. Meet. Cassandra. Clare! 

Also known as the best day of my life. 

Can you tell I'm not excited at all? 

In all seriousness though I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes up because (Ian Somerhalder *cough cough*) last time I was this excited to meet someone it turned out to be a complete let down! BUTTT how can I not love the creator or Will freaking Harondale?!?!?!!?!?!? 


That is the long answer for a short question... 

Until next time,

Top 10 Books To Read If You're In The Mood To Travel!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish where each week there is a new topic for a top ten list. 

This week it Top 10 Books To Read If You're In The Mood For X

I choose travel because it's starting to get warm out and I'm getting a little stir crazy from the winter! I need a vacation! 

1. The Last Summer (of You and Me)

I try to read this book every summer. I've loved it for years and it's the perfect book to make you forget the winter chill and make you believe you're biggest problem for the day is what swimming suit to wear. 

2. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

I LOVE southern settings! Ice tea, sun porches, adorable accents. This book made me feel like I was in Savannah and I loved falling into this story. 

3. Lola and the Boy Next Door 

Out of all of Stephanie Perkin's books I think Lola is my favorite. She's spunky and unique and her city matches her perfectly. I've always wanted to visit San Fransisco and this book makes my wanderlust go crazy!

4. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight 

Or the worlds longest title! Anyway.. London, cute boy with a British accent? Sold!

5. Just One Day 

I read this book years ago and while I don't remember most of it I do remember it made me want to go out and get a passport and just hope on the next plane to Europe.  

6. On The Island  

This one isn't necessarily a 'travel' book and it may even make you want to skip your vacation as it starts with a plane crash BUT I really loved this book and it would be great to read once you're already on the beach sun bathing. 

7. Rules For Summer

This book is another one of my favorite books to reread during the warm months. It's set in the Hampton's and it's the perfect beach read!

8. Calling Me Home 

This book was a huge surprise for me. I don't even know why I picked it up because I rarely read women's fiction but it just called to me and I LOVED it! It's got that southern feel to it plus a spontaneous road trip with a stranger. Perfect book if you're craving a cross country road trip!

I guess I only have 8 this week. Honestly I could add 2 Nicholas Sparks books and call it a day but to be honest, I'm too lazy to narrow it down to 2 and find the covers. But his books always make me want to hop on a plane to North Carolina, his settings are beautiful!

Until next time,
