Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Give Me Crayola Crayon Vibes

I haven’t participated in TTT in a LONG time, and I thought this prompt was super cute and creative. I had a lot of fun completing this list. I’m excited to see what other bloggers say. I’m sure there are tons of titles that could work. I couldn’t even narrow it down to 10, so I stopped at 15.

Rules:

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


I didn’t look up to see if any of these were already names for Crayola crayons or close to it. Some of these pretty much say which color they should be, but I’ll let you think about what the other ones would look like. If you want, you can leave your thoughts / guesses in the comments. I think that would be fun!

New Release Tuesday (10/6/20)

Hello, friends! I’ve recently discovered “New Release Tuesday” from other blogs I’ve been following. It seems like it would help me keep up with what’s new in the world of books. I don’t know who created this otherwise I would tell you. If you know, then definitely tell me in the comments.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget. France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get my hands on this one. I might be able to snag it from my library. This sounds really interesting, and I cannot wait to read it. I’ve never read anything from Schwab before, so hopefully it doesn’t disappoint. Release date: Today.


The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton

A murder on the high seas. A detective duo. A demon who may or may not exist. It’s 1634 and Samuel Pipps, the world’s greatest detective, is being transported to Amsterdam to be executed for a crime he may, or may not, have committed. Travelling with him is his loyal bodyguard, Arent Hayes, who is determined to prove his friend innocent. But no sooner are they out to sea than devilry begins to blight the voyage. A twice-dead leper stalks the decks. Strange symbols appear on the sails. Livestock is slaughtered. And then three passengers are marked for death, including Samuel. Could a demon be responsible for their misfortunes? With Pipps imprisoned, only Arent can solve a mystery that connects every passenger onboard. A mystery that stretches back into their past and now threatens to sink the ship, killing everybody on board.

I did manage to read The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle in December of 2018. I was pretty confused most of the time, but I remember really enjoying his writing style. This one just sounds odd and much different than his previous novel. Release date: Today.


In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren

One Christmas wish, two brothers, and a lifetime of hope are on the line for hapless Maelyn Jones in In a Holidaze, the quintessential holiday romantic novel by Christina Lauren, the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners. It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but not for Maelyn Jones. She’s living with her parents, hates her going-nowhere job, and has just made a romantic error of epic proportions. But perhaps worst of all, this is the last Christmas Mae will be at her favorite place in the world—the snowy Utah cabin where she and her family have spent every holiday since she was born, along with two other beloved families. Mentally melting down as she drives away from the cabin for the final time, Mae throws out what she thinks is a simple plea to the universe: Please. Show me what will make me happy. The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awake…she’s on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loop—and finally get her true love under the mistletoe.

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with this author duo. Their most recent novels have not hit the spot, but I keep coming back in hopes the next book will be better. I’m hoping that this one doesn’t make me want to stop reading their books. Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for the early digital copy. Release date: Today.


The Archive of the Forgotten by A.J. Hackwith

In the second installment of this richly imagined fantasy adventure series, a new threat from within the Library could destroy those who depend upon it the most. The Library of the Unwritten in Hell was saved from total devastation, but hundreds of potential books were destroyed. Former librarian Claire and Brevity the muse feel the loss of those stories, and are trying to adjust to their new roles within the Arcane Wing and Library, respectively. But when the remains of those books begin to leak a strange ink, Claire realizes that the Library has kept secrets from Hell–and from its own librarians. Claire and Brevity are immediately at odds in their approach to the ink, and the potential power that it represents has not gone unnoticed. When a representative from the Muses Corps arrives at the Library to advise Brevity, the angel Rami and the erstwhile Hero hunt for answers in other realms. The true nature of the ink could fundamentally alter the afterlife for good or ill, but it entirely depends on who is left to hold the pen.

I’m laughing because I haven’t even read the first book in this series. I’ve heard so many good things, and I’m an impulsive person, so of course I immediately requested this on NetGalley. *slaps forehead* Thank you NetGalley and Ace Publishing for the early digital copy. Release date: Today.

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

This was created by Chami over on YouTube! I couldn’t find the video, unfortunately. I found the questions @ Truffle’s Literary Wonders.

I tried my best not to pick the same book for multiple prompts. I’ve only read 38 books this year, and a few of those were graphic novels. It’s been a super weird and scary year. I hope you all are healthy and staying safe. I hope you’re all fighting for what’s right. I love you all, and I just want justice for all the wrongs that have happened. I hope this will give you just a moment away from reality.

Best book you’ve read so far in 2020:

There have been quite a few favorites. I can’t pick one because they’re all so different. There’s a lot of historical fiction, though. Oops.

All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers

The Last Train to London by Meg Waite Clayton

Big Lies in a Small Town by Diane Chamberlain

He Started It by Samantha Downing

Best sequel you’ve read so far:

If I’m being honest, I don’t have a favorite sequel. If I had to pick one I would choose Starsight by Brandon Sanderson. It’s a lot of fun, and I’m excited to pick up the next one that’s coming out in 2021.

A new release you haven’t read yet, but want to:

Sex and Vanity by Kevin Kwan

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune–This isn’t super new, but it still came out this year.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year:

The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline–I don’t know why I want to read this so much, but it’s really calling to me. Fortunately, I have the digital ARC from NetGalley! Thank you to them and the publisher. 😀

Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy–I loved her last book, so I’m expecting good things from this one!

Biggest disappointment:

Network Effect by Martha Wells–After reading the first four novellas in the series I was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it.

Biggest surprise:

The Red Lotus by Chris Bohjalian–I really didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. It was such an interesting story that I’ve never read before.

Favorite new author (debut or new to you):

Diane Chamberlain

Newest fictional crush:

I don’t have one from this year. Honestly, it’ll be hard to beat Aragorn from LOTR.

Book that made you cry:

Apparently, I’m heartless and don’t cry while reading books.

Book that made you happy:

Not a lot of happy books have been read this year. I think any Giant Days graphic novels can count for this one.

The most beautiful book you’ve bought/received so far this year:

Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams or The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd.

What books do you need to read by the end of the year?

I would love to finish A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, but I don’t think that’ll happen. That’s really the only book I feel like I need to read by the end of the year.

Favorite book to movie adaptation you’ve seen this year:

I don’t think I’ve watched any this year.


That’s all she wrote, folks! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you participate in this as well. I’m sorry mine wasn’t extremely interesting.

Book Review: What Lies Between Us by John Marrs

What Lies Between Us by John Marrs

380 pages

ISBN: 9781542017022

Published: 5/15/20 by Thomas & Mercer

Genre: Thriller

Rating: 3 out of 5.

B&N | Amazon

Goodreads synopsis:

Nina can never forgive Maggie for what she did. And she can never let her leave.

They say every house has its secrets, and the house that Maggie and Nina have shared for so long is no different. Except that these secrets are not buried in the past.

Every other night, Maggie and Nina have dinner together. When they are finished, Nina helps Maggie back to her room in the attic, and into the heavy chain that keeps her there. Because Maggie has done things to Nina that can’t ever be forgiven, and now she is paying the price.

But there are many things about the past that Nina doesn’t know, and Maggie is going to keep it that way—even if it kills her.

Because in this house, the truth is more dangerous than lies.

Review:

Thank you to Amazon Publishing UK (Thomas & Mercer) and NetGalley for the early digital copy in exchange for an honest review!

It took me about three months to finish this one. I managed to get a good chunk of the way through, but it didn’t keep my attention. I found the audiobook for it, and I decided to push my way through it. I also feel like there are a lot of books being published surrounding the same topic. I guess it made me not want to finish it.

The best parts about this one are the fast-paced twists and turns, and the writing style. I love when thrillers don’t have the basic writing style, when the writing is just a little more sophisticated. It just really worked for me. There are also a lot of twists throughout this book, but you almost need it if you think about what the plot is. I never saw them coming, but I didn’t sit there thinking about it.

I didn’t like any of the characters in this book. I started out feeling bad for Maggie, and then I would feel bad for Nina, but I ended up hating both in the end. It didn’t affect my rating, and I will give the author kudos for writing such unlikable characters. They did get on my nerves a bit, but they were solid thriller characters.

My biggest issues dealt with how much the author shows rather than tells. All the twists are basically spelled out to the reader, and I wasn’t a huge fan. It also made it seem repetitive at times, and I definitely don’t want that in an almost 400-page book.

Overall, I see why this has so much hype surrounding it. It definitely deserves some of that. It’s intriguing, and the anticipation is definitely prominent. It didn’t work for me, but I will pick up other books by Marrs. I have The One checked out at my library. I’ve heard great things about that one too. Fingers crossed. So, go pick this one up if you’re interested.

Life & Reading Update! 4/14/18

I’m back with a little update for you all. Unfortunately, our moving plans were a bust. We probably aren’t going anywhere for a while, but that’s okay! That just means I have more time for blogging and reading again. I did hit a wall with reading for a bit but I picked up a book that knocked that wall DOWN. I don’t usually read Young Adult, but I picked on up and I was instantly interested in reading again. Anyway, here is my reading progress.

I have not completed any books since I last talked to you all, but I plan to finish at least one this month.

Currently reading:

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: 429/719 pages. I am really enjoying this book so far. It has a great mix of action and humor. I’m just waiting to see where it’s going. I have no clue how it’s going to end. This does complete one of my 2018 Popsugar reading challenges as well.

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord: 97/388 pages. This is such a fun read. It is sad because of what the main character, Lucy, has to go through. I just find it a fast read and that’s why it kind of pushed me through my slump.

Thank you all for understanding why I was gone for a little bit. It was nice to take a break for a hot second, but I’m very excited to start back up again!

If you enjoyed this little life and reading update, give it a like and follow me for future ones. Be respectful and happy reading!

Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings #1)

By: J.R.R. Tolkien

fellowship

ISBN: 9780547928210

Published: September 18, 2012 by Mariner Books (Originally published: July 29, 1954)

Pages: 398

Genre: Fantasy

Rating: 4.75/5


Goodreads Synopsis:

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.


All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken, 

A light from the shadows shall spring;

Renewed shall be blade that was broken:

The crownless again shall be king.

I could have used the quote about one ring ruling them all but I thought I would use a different one that I loved.

Pros:

  • This novel was beautifully written. The language does get confusing at times but you just have to take your time if you aren’t used to it. This is not a book you fly through unless you have read it a hundred times. It took me over a month to read it and I’m not ashamed. I wanted to enjoy everything it had to offer, and it was more than I ever expected.
  • I can see how reading this could discourage someone just from how slow the plot is. I almost gave up but then I realized that the journey they take is not a quick one. They are traveling by foot, and it really suits how slow the book is. This was advice that my boyfriend gave me and it really opened my eyes. I enjoyed it more once I stopped whining over how nothing was actually happening. It was all there for a reason.
  • I absolutely loved that you could not tell if someone was a good guy or bad guy. I will admit though there was a lot of foreshadowing now that I look back on the book. Boromir was definitely one of those characters as the ending of the book grew near. His behavior was unacceptable, but I guess that’s what happens when power is within grasp.
  • The loyalty between the hobbits was incredible. Sam, Pippin, and Merry were dedicated to Frodo. They had faith in his choices 95% of the time. More often they questioned who other people were and if they could trust them; Aragorn is a great example of that. *Jokes on them because Aragorn turned out to be a bad ass.*

Cons:

  • I was not a fan of the singing. It happened far to often and to me it became annoying. Tom Bombadil was probably my least favorite when it came to singing. I understand that it was a story being told but I just didn’t find it all that necessary. I see how it would break the book up a little bit, but it’s just not for me honestly.

Theme:

I don’t usually discuss themes about a book, but I figured I would maybe give it a shot. Good vs Evil would definitely fit this novel. I know it sounds lame and childish but it fits the description very well. Frodo needs to destroy the ring so that the enemy, Sauron, doesn’t find it and take over. It’s very simple, and I’m not the best person to sit and analyze a book like crazy. I wish I was though, and I know I can definitely learn but as of right now I do not.

Favorite characters (no order):

Gimli: Son of Gloin

Frodo

Aragorn

Elrond

Gandalf

Obviously there is a lot more to discuss, but I feel as if I shouldn’t discuss everything until I read all three books. There will be a lot more to the journey than I think. It probably won’t be as easy as just finding the Cracks of Doom and throwing the ring in. I will discuss everything when I make my last review for the third book.

If you read The Fellowship of the Ring let me know what you thought of it down in the comments! If you enjoyed reading this then give it a like and follow me while I continue my journey with Frodo and all of his companions and enemies. Be respectful and happy reading!

5 Authors I’d Like to/Would Have Liked to Meet!

I’ve never really thought about meeting an author before. I know this isn’t fair but I’m going to admit it anyway; I’m afraid that they aren’t going to be as great as the novel they wrote. I guess I get the same way when I go to a concert, but I don’t meet the singers I just watch them perform. Anyway, here is a list of five authors I’d like to meet one day or would have liked to meet.

  1. J.R.R. Tolkien: If I could have met J.R.R. Tolkien I would have asked him so many questions. Lord of the Rings is such a brilliant world and it blows my mind that a human being wrote it. I want to know what went through his head as he created this beautiful story/adventure. There will never be anything to compare it to. He is like a Michael Jackson or Freddie Mercury of writing; there will never be another one like him. I do understand that Brandon Sanderson is good, but I’ve tried reading one of his books and although he is amazing it just isn’t the same.
  2. Celeste Ng: We all know I loved Little Fires Everywhere, and I’ll probably love Everything I Never Told You. I bet Celeste is such a graceful person. Her writing is smooth and alluring. It was hard for me to put down the book and it was only her second one. I’m intrigued to know if she is writing another novel. I’m really happy that they are stand alone novels. It’s hard for me to continue a series right after I finish the first one. A question I would ask her is where she got the inspiration to write Little Fires Everywhere. It’s a premise no one really thinks or talks about.
  3. J.K. Rowling: This woman knows how to write a fast paced, well put together fantasy novel. Everyone told me that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was going to be juvenile and it may be hard to get through for a little bit. It definitely wasn’t and it caught me by surprise. It also had an amazing twist that I didn’t see coming. It’s books like Harry Potter that make me love reading. Never judge a book by its cover or its hype. Just read it and form your own opinions because you could find your next five-star read. She has become one of my favorite authors, hence why she’s on this list.
  4. Paulo Coelho: We all know I love The Alchemist. I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing about it. I never really talk about the author so here is me talking about him. I’m sure this man has a lot of wisdom to give. I just picture him only speaking in quotes. I’ve only read one book by him but I would totally try picking up others. The Alchemist had such an interesting premise that I didn’t know what to expect. Coelho is probably the same way. I never hear anything about him so I wouldn’t know what to expect from him in person. I would love to know where he came up with the story. I’m sure he is tired of hearing about The Alchemist because that’s all I ever see people talk about or read. Either way I would love to meet him in person.
  5. Markus Zusak: I bet Markus has a great sense of humor. Who wouldn’t love to meet him? If you haven’t read I Am the Messenger you won’t know what I am talking about. The premise of his books are always compelling. I could reread The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger. That’s saying a lot coming from me. The Book Thief was heartbreaking and beautiful from an interesting perspective. I Am the Messenger was funny and suspenseful. I would ask him why he chose death to narrate The Book Thief or why he chose cards for I Am the Messenger. I just want to pick at his brain to see what other brilliant topics he can write about. I’d love to read more by him.

What are some of your favorite authors that you would like to meet? Let me know down in the comments.
