Lifeblood by Gena Showalter
I was so fortunate to have been contacted by Wunderkind PR to read and review the latest release of Lifeblood, the second book after Firstlife. Firstlife was our Book of the Month last June and it was such a hit. I couldn't wait to continue the series and Lifeblood did not disappoint. It blew me away! These books seem to just get better and better as the story progresses. I will be posting my review sometime this week so stay tuned! This is definitely one of my favorite series and I highly recommend that you should go buy both books ASAP!
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Ugly Love was the first book that I received for my birthday and I've been looking forward to reading it ever since I finished reading It Ends with Us in February. I already had November 9 by her that I could have read after but after hearing that there will be characters from Ugly Life that make a brief appearance in that one, I just have to read Ugly Love first!
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr
My two wonderful best friend bought me copies of Love & Gelato and Gem & Dixie for my birthday this year! I read through these ones so fast already! There’s a huge spot in my heart for Love & Gelato. 4 years ago, I took classes in Florence for a month and this book made me fall in love with Italy all over again and I’m now just counting the days for Love & Luck to come out. Ireland just so happens to be the next country I would love to visit someday! Gem & Dixie is a much deeper read as we follow two sisters that have a lot of problems at home. Being the opposite of the previous novel, this one broke my heart at times and only made me wish I can hop right into the book and aid them in their journey of finding themselves all while testing each other and their bond.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray
A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
My amazing boyfriend knows I have an addiction when it comes to books and since I’ve read A Thousand Pieces of You over the Christmas Holidays, I’ve needed to read the remaining books of this awesome, universe-jumping series! I was so happy to have been given the two books I’ve been missing for my birthday. He also bought me a copy of A Crown of Wishes! I’ve been anticipating this book for a while and though I haven’t read its companion novel that was released first, this one drew me in a lot more. I’ve heard so many good things about this one and how it’s just such a stunning and extraordinary read and that it’s a great book for fans of Caraval. With Caraval being my favorite book of 2017, you can imagine my excitement!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
I decided to go browse the books at my local Used Book Store and I was surprised to have found a copy of The Night Circus and Maybe Someday, both in perfect condition! I’ve been wanting to read The Night Circus ever since I finished reading Caraval. I really want to read another book that contains magic and the wonderment that is the circus. As for Maybe Someday, It’s actually been on my to-buy list for a while now and I plan on eventually owning all of Colleen Hoover’s books. I’ve been such a fan girl for the past year now and it’s to the point where one of my goals is to have one shelf dedicated for her books and decorations that are related to her work. I was so happy to have found a great deal!
More CoHo Books!!!
Speaking of Colleen Hoover books and how amazing they are, you wouldn’t believe how giving and supportive her fan base is. Everyone is just so kind and generous. When I picked up my copy of Maybe Someday at the Used Book Store, I’ve decided to show my excitement by posting a picture on her fan page. Someone saw my post and noticed how excited I was to be one book closer to completing my collection and so she asked me which ones were still missing. She then proceeded to surprise me by mailing me 6 more CoHo books! I’m only missing 6 of the 16 books that Colleen Hoover wrote now. I’m so close, guys! I still can’t get over how kind that was. One day, I hope to repay the kindness.
Funko Pop Figures!
I love to decorate my shelves with these cute figurines. I was able to get two more for my birthday this year. My friends were able to find me one of Dory which now has a place right by all of my Colleen Hoover books. I personally wanted it because in It Ends with Us, Dory is such a big part of the story in its own way and I’m very happy to have it right beside my copy. My brother was also able to find me one of Belle from the new Beauty and the Beast movie! Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney movies and when I saw the magical remake starring Emma Watson, I was blown away. It was such a masterpiece.
I’m already starting to stack up some books for my Summer 2017 Book haul! It’s such a great year for books!
