Library Book Haul

One of the best places to find cheap books is by visiting your local library. Once of the month at my closet library, they have book sales. I go and enjoy the great deals. This week they had a buy five books for just $2 so I couldn’t pass it up. And then came back at the end of the week for “free day” and some of the leftovers. I can’t wait for the next book sale to arrive.

This I hit my local library to check out this month’s book. I got some great books for less than $2.

Top Anticipated Books of 2017

I noticed really that there a trend of posts about books that are coming out in 2017. I decided to join the bandwagon and write a post about my own personal top anticipating books coming out this year. A lot of the books are mostly part of series that recently started and also some new series and standalone that I can’t wait to get my hands on. I actually reserved books ahead of time at my local library just so I can read them sooner. So on to my list of Most Anticipating Books of 2017

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth.

This is one of my top reads because I am a fan of her series for Divergent and been wondering when she will come back with more books. So finally a new book. To learn more about the book click here….

Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

As one of my favorite books last year I was excited to learn it was coming out in January and can’t wait to dive into this time-travel romance adventure and see what would happen next. If you haven’t read the first book called Passenger you can learn more here….

Windwitch (book 2 by The Witchlands) by Susan Dennard. Book 2 from Truthwitch

The last book was so much fun to read and was one of my favorite book covers of 2016. I love fantasy and characters that can control elements. I am hopeful to learn more about the world and see what else it has to offer. If you haven’t read Truthwitch click here to learn more.nd see what else it has to offer.

This another of my most of anticipated reads because the ended left me at the edge of the seat and the last book was one of my favorites and this series is awesome. I liked getting to learn more about the world and seeing more characters with special abilities. If you haven’t read the last two books try to catch up soon.

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsell

This is one of my only standalone that I been waiting for and want to read. I read Confessions of a Shopaholic and fell in love with the writing style of Sophie Kinsella and could wait to read another book of hers. Click here to learn more about the book.

Lifeblood (Firstlife Book 2) by Gena Showalter

It actually took me awhile to read to get to the last book but when I read it kept me wanting to learn more about the world and I thought the book was really exciting to read. Fast past and I love the mixture of science fiction and fantasy in a book.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

As my favorite book of 2016 other than the Red Queen series I this was the most exciting. I loved the world building, the fae, and the characters. The ending left me at the edge of my seat. I got to say as my first time reading a Maas book I was downright impressed.

Lord of Shadows (Dark Artifices) by Cassandra Clare

I thought the first book was amazing and brought me back to the Shadowhunter world again. And after my disappointment of the TV series, this cheered me up. I loved the new characters along with some old ones and can’t wait to see what happens next.Click Here to learn more.

Ash and Quill (The Great Library) by Rachel Caine

I really enjoyed the dystopian fiction book where books are a center piece of the story and I enjoyed the crazy mysteries of the The Great Library. The last book had tons of action and more crazy conspiracy of the The Great Library. Can’t wait for the release.

Origin (Robert Langdon Series) by Dan Brown

Its finally coming out this year. I’ve been waiting for another Dan Brown book since Inferno and I can’t wait to read it. Sadly the new cover has been release yet so I can’t gaze upon it but oh well. What I like about the series is that it’s so well researched that it feels like everything the book seem real. Are you sure it’s fictional?

Those the books I am currently excited to read this year. My list is subjected to increase throughout the year when I discover more new release. So let me know what books you are more excited for and until next time keep on reading.

2017 Reading Goals

Happy New Year! It is finally 2017. I believe that 2016 has flown by fast and was pretty much eventful with crazy wars, elections and the Olympics and so much more. In the month January it is a great time of the year to start with new goals and hopes of what to accomplish. My actually came up with a few. Personally I don’t believe in resolutions and have tried creating them in years past but this year I prefer to just create goals instead. So of my goals include:

Read More Classics

This year I haven’t read enough classics and this year I would like to read a little more. I always had trouble fitting a classic in my reading journey and would like to explore more classic versions of my favorite genres. To check out where all my favorite genres came from.Here are some books I would like to read this year.


Read Different Genres

Sometimes I can get stick reading the same genres a lot so I would like to read more genres. Like explore more mysterious, contemporaries and Horror. I also like to read more memoirs as well.

Book Adapted to Screen

I also would like to try to read as many books before or after I saw the movie. A lot of people say that the book is better than the movie and I would like to have the opportunity to enjoy both mediums.

I started a lot of series and would like to finish some of them so I can start new ones. Some of my favorites that I would like to finish are:
