Books With Colors in the Title | Top Ten Tuesday

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well on this fine Tuesday. Today is another Top Ten Tuesday post, hosted by Jana of That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is about books with colors in the title! I think this is a fun, chill topic, so let’s jump into some books that I own (or have read) with colors in their titles.

I’m challenging to pick only books that I or my husband own, so let’s see what I can come up with!

10. City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.

But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to accept that the magical world she thought only existed in childhood stories is real. For the warrior tells her a new tale: across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire, and rivers where the mythical marid sleep; past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises, and mountains where the circling hawks are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass, a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound.

In that city, behind gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal. That magic cannot shield her from the dangerous web of court politics. That even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.

After all, there is a reason they say be careful what you wish for…

I have yet to read this book that I’ve heard nothing but good things about, but brass is in the title of it! Brass is like a gold/brown kind of color, and was the first book that came to mind.

9. Orange by Ichigo Takano

A Plea From the Future

On the day that Naho begins 11th grade, she receives a letter from herself ten years in the future. At first, she writes it off as a prank, but as the letter’s predictions come true one by one, Naho realizes that the letter might be the real deal. Her future self tells Naho that a new transfer student, a boy named Kakeru, will soon join her class. The letter begs Naho to watch over him, saying that only Naho can save Kakeru from a terrible future. Who is this mystery boy, and can Naho save him from his destiny? This is the heart-wrenching sci-fi romance that has over million copies in print in Japan!

I mean, how much more obvious could it had been? A great manga series that touches on friendship, suicide, depression, and much more.

8. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

Eight years have passed since the young Princess Bitterblue, and her country, were saved from the vicious King Leck. Now Bitterblue is the queen of Monsea, and her land is at peace.

But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisers, who have run the country on her behalf since Leck’s death, believe in a forward-thinking plan: to pardon all of those who committed terrible acts during Leck’s reign; and to forget every dark event that ever happened. Monsea’s past has become shrouded in mystery, and it’s only when Bitterblue begins sneaking out of her castle – curious, disguised and alone – to walk the streets of her own city, that she begins to realise the truth. Her kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year long spell of a madman, and now their only chance to move forward is to revisit the past.

Whatever that past holds.

Two thieves, who have sworn only to steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck’s reign. And one of them, who possesses an unidentified Grace, may also hold a key to her heart

This is the third book in a companion trilogy, which I have not read yet, but blue is in the title!

7. Blue Exorcist by Kazue Kato

Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth – the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin’s veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. Can Rin fight demons and keep his infernal bloodline a secret? It won’t be easy, especially when drawing his father’s sword releases the demonic power within him!

More blue in this one! This is a great shounen manga series with lots of action and comedy. It’s also an anime!

6. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

^Excerpt from The Raven Boys so as to not spoil this third book in this series. I feel like blue is a very easy color to pick to be in titles, not gonna lie.

5. The Color Project by Sierra Abrams

Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.

Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.

When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

I mean… it literally has the word “color” in it, sooooooo…. lol I have yet to read this book that my friend wrote, but I hope to sometime this year!

4. Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.

The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

Three colors in the title! A fun new adult contemporary of boys love and identity.

3. The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The Color Purple is a classic. With over a million copies sold in the UK alone, it is hailed as one of the all-time ‘greats’ of literature, inspiring generations of readers.

Set in the deep American South between the wars, it is the tale of Celie, a young black girl born into poverty and segregation. Raped repeatedly by the man she calls ‘father’, she has two children taken away from her, is separated from her beloved sister Nettie and is trapped into an ugly marriage. But then she meets the glamorous Shug Avery, singer and magic-maker – a woman who has taken charge of her own destiny. Gradually, Celie discovers the power and joy of her own spirit, freeing her from her past and reuniting her with those she loves.

It has the words “color” and “purple” in it, so double win right here! I haven’t read this book yet, but one day I will!

2. Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

So much blue! I bought this book on kindle so long ago that I keep forgetting I have it. Whoops.

1. The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons

The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler’s armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.

Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident, yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana—and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander’s impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects—a secret as devastating as the war itself—as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.

Another of the metal colors, bronze is also a gold/brown color, but not as coppery as brass. I have yet to read this, but it’s been on my kindle for years and years, so one day I will.


I’m actually amazed I had ten books with some variation of colors (or the word “color”) in their titles. I also have “The Astonishing Color of After” by Emily X.R. Pan on my kindle as an honorable mention since I didn’t have enough spots here.

What books do you have with colors in the title? Did you have to dig like I did to find them?

20 Facts About Me

Oh hi, you lovely people! It’s been a while since I’ve done a post like this, so I thought, “why not do an updated ‘facts about me’ post?” So that’s what I’m going to do today!

I’m not going to talk about the ones that were in my Top Ten Tuesday post, or my 25 Bookish Facts About Me post, but instead talk about ten new bookish facts and ten non-bookish facts. Why not?

Here we go~!

Bookish

1. Since I started blogging, I’ve been to the following author signings: Jodi Meadows & Erica Bowman, Sarah J. Maas, Maggie Steifvater, and Leigh Bardugo. Each of the events were super fun and I highly recommend going to one if you’re able to!

2. I’ve been super into webcomics the last few years, hence my lack of book reviews and content. They’re easy to dive into and where I’m a visual person, the illustrations help me to escape into those worlds. You can check out my most recent recommendations here!

3. I’ve been listening to Brandon Sanderson’s audiobook for The Way of Kings for months now… it’s 45+ hours long… It’s fine… But my fact is that, because of this audiobook and The Kiss of Deception, I’ve definitely warmed up to audiobooks as a medium for myself much more and have since bought more books to read in this form!

4. So before we moved, my workplace was throwing away this hutch that was in an office, and I said I’d take it home and turn it into a bookshelf. Lo and behold, when I got home, my husband surprised me with another bookshelf that same day… so… I told my dad he can sell the hutch or keep it if he wants to because I didn’t have a use for it anymore lol

5. My reading tastes are changing, bit by bit. I’ve been noticing this for a while now, that I’m gravitating toward more adult reads than YA reads. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course! I believe I’m looking for more relatable content, but I’m not going to stop reading YA – or MG now that I’m into the Percy Jackson series! – anytime soon.

6. I’ve started a reading/bookish bullet journal! August will be my second month using it, and I’m really enjoying it so far. I’ve tried – and failed – two or three times to use an actual bullet journal, but my life is not that exciting so as to really need one, you know? So I started this bookish bullet journal and I love it! I’m playing around with the format and what I want to include in it and such, but there’s still plenty of flexibility with it. I’ll do a post about it soon.

7. I’m trying to get back into reading novels. Like I said earlier, I’ve been into reading webcomics like nobody’s business the last few years, and that’s due to life circumstances and depression that caused me to stop reading novels. But I’m trying to reintroduce myself to them bit by bit. I think the readathons I’m participating in are helping a bit.

8. Speaking of readathons, I love how many are popping up, but I realized that I need to focus on one readathon at a time. I’m amazed at how I see people participating in three or more at the same time, and I’m just like, “Are ya a wizard or something!?” I get overwhelmed easily, so for August I’ll only be participating in one readathon – the Disney-a-thon!

9. I’ve unhauled and donated soooo many books over the last two years. I didn’t realize just how many books I bought purely for the hype or because I was super interested at the time, but then grew out of it as time went on. And yet I still have no room on my shelves…

10. I’ve been buying a lot more ebooks lately so I can 1) put my kindle to good use and get my money’s worth lol, and 2) they’re cheaper and more convenient.

Non-Bookish

1. My husband and I moved! We moved to North Carolina at the beginning of July, and my dudes, it’s hot af here. Like. Why is it so humid all the time? Whyyyyyyy I miss my cooler Massachusetts weather. *cry* We moved because he got a job with a company that’s widespread so he’ll be an electrician’s apprentice.

2. I got two more tattoos! They’re both on my left forearm and done on the same day. The one at the top is the four elements (from the top going clockwise): air, water, fire, earth, and the center is spirit, and the lines that connect everything together. And then my constellation of Leo!

3. My husband and I have been together for 11 years this year, and married for five of them this year, too. CRAZY.

4. I’ve been getting more into spirituality lately again, and so I’ve been picking up tarot and oracle cards and learning to read them. I’ve gotten a lot of conversations from them for myself and a lot of guidance, so that’s been nice.

5. I went to Anime Boston earlier this year and cosplayed as casual Uraraka Ochako! (She’s a character from the hit manga/anime My Hero Academia.) It was super fun and I wish I could go again next year, but I don’t see that happening. I went by myself, too, which wasn’t as fun because it’s great going to conventions with others for the experience and fun times with one another, but I still had a good time. We also got to see MIYAVI live again (we had seen him in early 2018) and he was SO GREAT! He played a bunch of new songs off of his album that hadn’t been released yet and it was just so good!

6. Speaking of concerts, my husband and I also went to the Love Yourself tour for BTS last year in September in CANADA! We met up with some friends up there and it was such a blast! The boys were great and we had a great time. We also got to go to the Jingle Ball concert and see artists like Camilla Cabello, Sean Mendes, and Monsta X! Both concerts were great.

7. I’ve written a bunch of fanfiction of one of my all time favorite couples (non-canon): Bakugou Katsuki and Uraraka Ochako from My Hero Academia. I fell hard into this fandom and this ship, and I just had to write (and draw) my own stories about them. If you want to check out my works, here’s my AO3 for you to peruse. I’m pretty proud of them as I’ve gone on, to be honest. I’ve even been part of a zine and wrote a story for it, and so I have some of my work out there in the world! It’s cool!

8. I have a RedBubble shop now. I’ve got a few different anime prints available of fan art I’ve done, so check it out! I hope to do more in the future. It was a big leap for me, and I’ve had a few sales, which is nice! But yeah, you can see some of my favorite ships and characters. I’ll definitely draw some more as time goes on! Not strictly related to anime, but other things, too.

9. I fell in love with the online show Critical Role. It’s a DnD show where “a bunch of nerdy ass voice actors sit around and play Dungeons and Dragons” (to quote Matthew Mercer). I had never had much interest in DnD before. I had joined a campaign with some close friends, but we quickly stopped because it just wasn’t fun at the time (the campaign got revamped a year later but then, you know, life happened so we stopped again). And my husband had tried to show me this show before, but I was determined at the time to not like it. Don’t ask me why lol

And then, one day, I was sitting around last summer and was like, “Oh, they started a second campaign? They’re not too far into it… Okay, I’ll give this a chance.” And so I started watching campaign two, episode one, and I was hooked. I’ve caught up with the current campaign and have been watching the liveshows for months now (hello 10PM start time and 1:30AM end time lol), every week on Thursdays (unless cancelled or moved).

I fell in love with not only the characters that are being played, but also the voice actors themselves, and also with the game that is Dungeons & Dragons. It’s crazy! I haven’t had much opportunity to play, but I’ve got dice, I’ve got some characters, and I’m ready to go!

(I also got these beautiful posters – with one of them signed by the cast – and I love them so much! *cries forever*)

Sorry for the crappy lighting. The other light was reflecting off of the glass a lot more. But the one of the Might Nein on the right is signed by the cast!

You can check out Critical Role on either YouTube (click here to catch up with campaign one, which is what I’m doing, or click here to catch up with campaign two) or on Twitch (which is where they do their livestreams each week). Mind you, each episode is usually over 3 hours long, so keep that in mind when watching them!

10. I started to get into wearing wigs! Let me tell you, they’re so fun to wear! As of this post, I have a total of seven wigs. Here’s some pics to show them off because I love them. I just find them fun, and they don’t damage your hair like regular dye and bleach does, so if you want to wear one one day, and then have different color the next, you can!


Aaaaaannndddd… that’s it! I had a hard time trying to figure out what to say about myself, let me tell you lol But I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me!

Let’s Chat!

Tell me one bookish fact about yourself and one non-bookish fact that you’re comfortable sharing! I want to learn more about you guys, so tell me about yourselves! ^^

Disney-a-thon TBR

That’s right, I’m joining another readathon! Everyone’s coming up with a lot of good ones lately, so I’m excited to join!

And, really, if you don’t know me by now: hi, my name is Rayna and I love Disney.

So as soon as I saw there was going to be a readathon based around Disney, OF COURSE I HAD TO JOIN. Disney-a-thon, here I come!

Let’s go over the details of the readathon and then I’ll jump into my team and my TBR!

Hosts: Izzy of izcurrentlyreading, Ally of nature of pages, Francisco of Books Under Covers, and Divya of celebrityreadshush.

Time: August 1st-31st

There are four teams for this readathon, and each of the hosts is going to be head of their team:

  • Izzy is hosting Team Aladdin
  • Ally is hosting Team Tangled
  • Francisco is hosting Team Lion King
  • Divya is hosting Team Mulan

Each team has their own prompts and reading goals, but I’m going to talk about my team: Team Aladdin!

So each team has a total of five books to read (this is including the group book for their specific team), and each group has a special ability granted to them by one of the characters in their movie!

Here’s the prompts and how many points they’re worth:

  • Jasmine: a book that features royalty – 10 points
  • Aladdin: a book that includes romance – 10 points
  • Magic Carpet: a fantasy book – 10 points
  • Jafar: a book that sucks you in as if you’re in a trance, and one you must read only at night/in the dark – 25 points
  • Abu: this is the group book: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell – 50 points

Our special ability is granted by, you guessed it, Genie! Our special ability allows us to DNF a book if we’re not liking it and keep our points for that specific prompt, excluding the group book.

I’m pretty excited because for my TBR I picked books that I think are going to be really fun to read – and they’re all ebooks, which makes me feel like I’m reading faster, even though I’m probably not lol

Here’s my TBR!

  • Jasmine: Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
  • Aladdin: The Risk by Elle Kennedy
  • The Magic Carpet: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
  • Jafar: The Wicked King by Holly Black
  • Abu: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

I’m going to take it easy this month and only participate in this readathon. Last month kind of overwhelmed me, haha!

Let’s Chat!

Can you keep one jump ahead of the bread line? One swing ahead of the sword? Or are you going to be swept under by the Cave of Wonders? (If you’re participating in this readathon, let me know and tell me what team you’re on!) Which book are you most excited to read in August?

The Book Junkie Trials & Medievalathon TBRs

Why, hello there. It’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it? Well, today I’m coming at you with a couple of TBRs as I make July a super busy month filled with writing for Camp NaNoWriMo, as well as two month long readathons, and moving to a new state! Fun fun!

The Book Junkie Trials

This first readathon is The Book Junkie Trials, created and hosted by Rachael Marie of Rachael Marie Book Junkie. Her announcement video covers all the bases as far as what the reading challenges for every team are, so I’ll let you peruse that, but basically there are four teams: Scribe, Mage, Outlaw, and Bard. You take a quiz to be determined which team you’ll be a part of, and then you can follow the respective leader’s video to learn about each trial and their destinations to The Bookie Grail.

So I am part of the Magi team, and as such, we are following the map that Rachael Marie created from Orcs Cove, down to Ol’ Pirate Cove, through Glimmer, into the Draconic Isle, and finally to the Bookie Grail.

Each stop has a specific goal that each team must achieve in their respective routes to reach the Bookie Grail.

  • Orc Cove: Some say there are no talking to orcs, but a good political relationship is needed. Learn some orc customs by reading a book that is gruesome, gory, or gritty.
  • Ol’ Pirate Cove: Shiver me timbers! You’ll be walking the plank if you don’t learn how to sail better. Read a book that takes place, at least in part, at sea.
  • Glimmer: This isle is alight with gems and crystals, one of the most picturesque spots in the High Queendom. Make sure you fit in with a beautiful or colorful book.
  • Draconic Isle: Oh my! This island is swarming with wyverns and dragons. Brush up your draconic knowledge with a book that features dragons.
  • The Bookish Grail: Here you find a lost manuscript, delivered on this forgotten isle by a fallen star. Read the group book: Stardust by Neil Gaiman.

And each team has one ability and one flaw that can either help or hinder them. So the Magi’s ability is time manipulation. We have a three day lead on all other teams (which means we were able to start our first book on June 28th).

As for our weakness: One of our spells went awry, and now they are forced to read a book outside their comfort zone.

So here’s my TBR for this readathon:

  • Orcs Cove: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (already completed with my time ability)
  • Ol’ Pirate Cove: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
  • Glimmer: Crystal Crowned by Elise Kova
  • The Draconic Isle: A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent by Marie Brennan
  • The Bookish Grail: Stardust by Neil Gaiman

I want to say my flaw book is Sea of Monsters because I don’t read middle grade all the often, if at all (minus the first Percy Jackson a few months ago).

This readathon lasts the whole month, so I’m excited to dive into these books!

Medieval-a-thon

This readathon is also taking place for the whole month, and it’s hosted by Holly of Holly Hearts Books. Her announcement video explains in detail everything that is taking place for this readathon, but basically it’s like a build your own character RPG type of thing, and I am here. For. It.

So the more books you read, the higher your rank will become, from lowly peasant all the way up to king or queen.

And the way this works: you get to dress your character.

  • Crown: A book where a character fights for the throne.
  • Helmet: A book with a dragon on the cover.
  • Breastplate: A shiny book.
  • Shin guards: A thick book.
  • Boots: A book that has yellowed over time.
  • Cloak: A book with red on the dust jacket.

But not only do you get to earn your armor, you also get to pick a weapon of your choice!

  • Sword: A book with something pointy on the cover.
  • Dual blades: A book with assassins.
  • Bow & arrows: A book with elves.
  • Ax: A book with mercenaries.

So, here is my TBR for this readathon:

  • Crown: The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
  • Helmet: A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent by Marie Brennan
  • Breastplate: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  • Shin guards: Stupid Love Comedy by Syusyusyu Sakurai
  • Boots & weapon: Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  • Cloak: Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

This is a very hopeful TBR lol I don’t know how many I’ll actually get to finish, but I hope it’ll be a lot of them over the course of the month!

Let’s chat! ❤

What do you think of these readathons? Are you participating? What’s your most anticipated read? How many books do you have set out to read for July, even if you don’t participate in these readathons? Let me know!

Fall Time Book Haul

I haven’t done a haul since August. Wow. Well, I don’t think I’ve accumulated that many books, but then again, Christmas did just happen, sooooo… Yeah. Books.

Let’s get into it, shall we? These aren’t going to be in the order in which I got them, but they are from September until now.

Physical Books

  • The Raven Boys cycle, 1-3, by Maggie Steifvater. Okay, technically I’ll be getting the paperback version of the third book tomorrow, but close enough. And it will be hauled in December, so there.
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik. This was a book highly recommend by Sam of ThoughtsonTomes, so I really wanted to check it out. Fantasy, romance, political plots, oh my!
  • The Amazing Book is Not On Fire by Dan Howell and Phil Lester. I am a phan. I cannot help it. I also only discovered them right around the time their book came out in America, so this was just kind of like it was meant to be.
  • Binge by Tyler Oakley. I’ve been following him for several months on Youtube, and I do find him to be funny and weird and goofy, so I thought I’d give his book a go. And it’s a lot heavier than you’d expect (high quality paper).
  • The Fever series, books 1-3, by Karen Marie Moning. A series that Sarah Jane from TheBookLife loves to pieces, and several other Booktubers gush over, so I had to give it a go. Plus, faeries. I’m in.
  • Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner. I LOVE THIS COVER. And this book. I just. It’s amazing. Go read it and check out my review before you do.
  • Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes. This is the fourth installment in this six book series, and I am really digging this cover! It’s definitely my favorite cover out of all of them, and though I haven’t read the third book yet, I’ll definitely get to these two soon.
  • Carry On and Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I love Rainbow’s books! She’s seriously amazing and I just can’t wait to read these ones by her. I now own all of her works that are published, woo!
  • Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. This book was so sweet and so filled with the need and desire to experience things before you realize what you’ve missed out on. Check out my review for more on what I thought.
  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. If you didn’t see my gigantic review post on this book, where have you been? I obviously got this the day it came out and loved it to pieces.

Audiobooks

eBooks

Well, 22 books over four months isn’t horrible, right? Right. I’m actually kind of surprised this was all I got. Maybe I got more, but I honestly can’t remember, haha!

What books did you get for the holidays? Any you plan on getting soon in the new year? Let me know!
