Finding more about the past and future of our beloved squad in…Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

I FINALLY READ THIS BOOK LET’S SHOUT OUR THANKS TO THE HEAVENS AND SING HALLELUJAH!

Seriously though. I only needed to read this book to finish the Lunar Chronicles series. It took me months, but finally FINALLY I’M DONE.

Which is funny really, considering this was one of my top priorities/anticipates releases and yet when I got it…nope. But here we are today.

Since this is a novella bind-up, the review will be slightly different. I’ll give a rating for each individual novella with a couple of sentences, then at the end give an overall summary and rating.

Let’s talk about Stars Above!

That Huge Build Up Of Books That I Hope To Read This Summer

summer TBR

You know when you sort of keep buying books and you really want to read them all but you don’t know when that’ll happen so you keep planning to read them soon and then you end up in a huge tangle of “oh my goodness what do I read now?!?”

Well, that’s basically what this post is.

I suppose this is a TBR, since I’m actually planning on reading these.

But these books are the books I hope to read this summer – well, all the books that I OWN that I plan to read. No doubt I’ll end up buying more. And obviously I’ll be reading more than just these books.

This was originally going to be a Top 10 post, but …well…there’s more than ten 😀

But anyway, I’m rambling.

Here are the books I own that I hope to read this Summer!

April Book Haul – So Much For That Book Buying Ban!

April haul

At the start of the month I said to myself “I’m on a book buying ban for April because I’ve gotten so many books since December.”

As time went on, I realized one of my most anticipated releases came out at the end of the month. So this went from no books to “I’ll make an exception for THAT ONE BOOK.”

And then April actually started and I ended up getting 6 books. And a half. Kind of (you’ll see what I mean).

So here’s my failed book buying ban – otherwise known as a haul!

So here we are, having reached the end of another month. Which means it’s time to do one of my favourite type of blog posts…a Wrap Up!

As always, I’ll be listing all the books I’ve read this month, along with what I’m currently reading, the blog posts I wrote this month (that weren’t reviews), and a few updates about my life in general.

This will be a pretty long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter

*All reviews I write are spoiler free*

I finally read the last book in The Lunar Chronicles!

Well, sort of. If you don’t count the novellas in Stars Above.

But I’ll get round to those at some point.

As always, my review will be spoiler free, but since this is the 4th book in a series, the synopsis may contain spoilers for the previous books. There will be a warning just before the synopsis, so if you haven’t read the previous books, just skip ahead to my review.

So let’s talk about Winter!

Winter

Author: Marissa Meyer

Publisher: Puffin

Series Status: The 4th book in The Lunar Chronicles

Number of Pages:  823

Bookish Fan Art

Today’s post is something a little different.

I’ve got a huge fascination for fan art. I love searching through Pinterest looking at the talent people have.

And if you follow me on Twitter, I’m sure you know that I also love attempting my own fan art.

So for today’s post, I’m splitting this into two sections:

Section 1 – Sharing some of my favourite fan art that I’ve seen on Pinterest

Section 2 – Sharing a few of my own.

So let’s look at some Fan Art!

February Wrap Up

February Wrap up.PNG

February has been and almost gone, and for once this month felt like it lasted ages. Normally the months flash by without a pause, but looking back today and seeing which books I read, it actually seems like a lifetime ago when I read the books at the beginning of the month.

Anyway, as usual with these wrap ups, I’ll be sharing the books I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, a list of posts uploaded this month, and a life in general updates section.

This is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

February Book Haul! (It’s a big one)

february book haul

I got a lot of books this month. A LOT.

But it was my birthday, so I guess it’s excusable?

But I’m not even sorry. My reading material is sorted for a few months now so I’m happy. Plus I’ve been really wanting most of these books for months now, so…yeah.

This post will be long enough on it’s own, so I won’t ramble any longer.

This will be in three sections: books I got before my birthday, ON my birthday, and after.

Let’s jump right in!

My top 10 books of 2015

Top 10 books of 2015

So now that it’s the end of the year, I figured I’d show you what my Top 10 books of 2015 were. I think it’s going to be difficult to choose just 10!

I’ve written a guest post very similar to this over on Books With Em’s, so you guys should go and check that out!

Top 5 books of 2015

Anyway, I’ll mix this one up a bit so that it’s not exactly the same post. I suppose the guest post can be a sort of…Top 5 favourites from my Top 10 – if that makes any sense.

Now instead of rambling on, time for me to show you my top 10 favourite books of 2015!
