As you may have noticed, this is my first ever wrap-up-post. I was just reading some blogs and they did wrap-up posts and I thought: why not? A wrap-up is a good way to recap the month for myself and for you guys. Also, I have seen and written the words 'wrap-up' too much now and they seem weird and alien O.o I mean: wrap. WRAP. It is a strange word.
Anywho. I present to you (yes that was rhyme on purpose. I win the internet today.), my wrap-up!
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson, #2) (4 stars)
The Promise of Amazing (2.5 stars)
Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1) (ARC, 4 stars)
Of Poseidon (Chapter by Chapter: chapter one and two)
Of Poseidon (Chapter by Chapter: chapter three and four)
Of Poseidon (Chapter by Chapter: chapter five and six)
Uninvited by Sophie Jordan: I have read this one already and I LOVED it. It's awesome! If you didn't like/ hated Jordan's Firelight series: do not worry. This book is GOOD. I gave this 4.5 stars! My review should be up closer to the release date (January 28th)
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott: Have read this one too and had mixed feelings. It was a good book, but the main character annoyed me at times. On the other hand, she had good reason for her behiavor and I truly felt for her. The romance was pretty cute too! Once again, my review will be up closer to the release date. (January 28th)
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge: Eh. I was sooo excited for this and COULDN'T wait to read this. I finished it today and I am disappointed. The romance fell flat and the plot was confusing. I has a sad. This book received a meagre 2 stars. (January 28th)
Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi: Have read this one too (November was read-all-your-arcs-month) and I really really liked it! A worthy conclusion of this series and I actually think it's the best book of the three. It got a solid 4 stars. (January 28th) (Seriously, everything's coming out on January 28th.)
Panic by Lauren Oliver: LOVED this one. My review is already up and can be found here. (March 4th)
Avalon by Mindee Arnett: don't know what to think of this one yet! I haven't heard much about it yet, really. I hope it blows my mind though!
Maybe One Day by Melissa Cantor: SO excited for this one! Everyone who's read this gave it 4.5 stars, so I hope it'll blow my socks off :D (February 18th)
Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine: PRETTY COVER. To be honest, I haven't even looked at the synopsis yet. *reads* "Slaughterhouse... Ghosts..." Okay, YES. You just got me excited. But SO LONG 'till I can review it! :o (August 5th)
No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale: Eh. I was excited to get an ARC until the reviews started coming in and apparently it's HORRIBLE. As in, it's-not-even-funny horrible. I think I'll let this one slide.
All That Glows by Ryan Graudin: Again, the cover is lovely! I'm really curious how this one'll turn out!
White Space by Ilsa J. Bick: Apparently, this is a thriller. I'm not really one for thrillers (I scare very easily. Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight's tomb-and-other-scary-places scenes scared the shit out of me - I read it at night.) So yeah. It sounds interesting, but I might skip it. But only if I have better things to read! (February 11th)
Elusion by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam: Another pretty pretty cover. The premise sounds interesting too, so I hope it won't disappoint! (March 18th)
Also, I have managed to not buy a single book this month! Woo! First book buying ban that I actually completed without ordering something. And I'll go directly into the next, since Christmas is coming up and I'll need to buy presents!
Yes yes, y'all, I have sort of completed my Christmas wishlist and I gave it to my parents! Now I can only hope that the books I'll get are indeed awesome.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: This is my number one most anticipated 2013 release! Everyone's raving about it and I am burning with need. I have made it very clear to my parents that I NEED this one, haha. It *may* have gotten three exclamation marks. !!!
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer: No, I have indeed not read this one yet. Which is why I put it on my wishlist, so I can read it and then fangirl all over Cress with you guys! Apparently Cress is amazing, so i want to be able to dive right in when it comes out.
Emily the Strange: the Lost Days by Rob Reger: This one's pure nostalgia. I read it when I was younger and remember LOVING it. Lately, I constantly have the urge to re-read it, but I don't own a copy. So, on the wishlist it went!
Split Second by Kasie West (pre-order): no need to explain, yes?
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta: Need to read this so I know why everyone's fangriling about it!
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta: Same.
Goodbye, Rebel Blue by Shelley Coriell: This one was a bit impulsive, but I like gthe sound of the premise and it sounds like the fluffiness I need!
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Another series everyone seems to ADORE and I haven't read it.
Every Day by David Levithan: After being thoroughly impressed by Two Boys Kissing (that may have been my favorite 2013 novel), I knew I needed more Levithan in my life.
Well, that was it for today! I hope y'all had a lovely November and will have an even lovelier December <3 Take care!
