#NotAll Booktag

Book Tag

Hello! A tag today – I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian back in December and my brain decided to put that information down into my subconscious for two months for some reason. So I’m posting today because it rose to the surface!


#notall cover changes – a cover change you liked

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1)Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone, #1)

I mean, I like the original too… and props for them for waiting ’til the series was actually finished before doing a new cover.

#notall adaptations – an adaptation you love more than the book

The Hobbit

CALL ME A HEATHEN. DO IT.

#notall tropes – a trope you’ll never tire of seeing

I think I need to go with orangutan’s post and go with ‘bad’ characters that  have a soft spot. They’re neato

I feel like they would secretly love getting a hug.

#notall instalove – you instaloved this instacouple

…is it bad that I can’t think of one?

#notall love triangles – an example of love triangle done well

Rurouni Kenshin, Vol. 1: Meiji Swordsman Romantic Story (Rurouni Kenshin, #1)

I think the one in here is handled rather decently – this is not a romance manga by any means, so I think that’s why. All the character’s feelings are believable, and it doesn’t take the focus of the story at any point anyways. Gosh I need to reread this.

#notall parents – bookish parents that, you know, PARENT!

I feel like this is going to a be rather prominent answer

#notall villains – a villain you love

Siege and Storm (Grisha Verse, #2)

The Darkling, man. Be still my beating heart.

#notall chosen ones – a chosen one you can get behind

The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)

Going with Kip. And this is to say, that I’ve only read the first three books – there are two yet that I haven’t read. He might not be the chosen one, but don’t tell me that.

#notall hyped books – a book that lived up to the acclaim

The Martian

Love it

#notall *insert favourite genre* – a book you’re not keen on from your favourite genre

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)

2 stars, man. This fantasy was no beuno.

#notall *insert least favourite genre* – a book you liked from a genre you don’t often read

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

Not typically a fan of middle grade. But! This one is pretty swell.


And that’s it! Happy reading!

2018 Anticipated Releases | January – June

Anticipated Releases

Hello! I’ve decided to start a new (for me) bi-annual post on my blog – anticipated releases! A lot of people do these kinds of posts and I love getting ideas from them for books to add to my list. 😀 So I’m going to do two per year – Jan-June and July-Dec. Six month thingies.

Also, considering I haven’t read these yet and all I can say about them is ‘Oh I’m excited to read them!’ I’m just going to list them and post their synopsis. If you’d like, you can imagine me adding it ‘Oh, me wanty!’ after the end of every one.


Semiosis by Sue Burke

Semiosis: A NovelAnticipated release date: Feb 6

Goodreads synopsis: Only mutual communication can forge an alliance with the planet’s sentient species and prove that mammals are more than tools.

Forced to land on a planet they aren’t prepared for, human colonists rely on their limited resources to survive. The planet provides a lush but inexplicable landscape–trees offer edible, addictive fruit one day and poison the next, while the ruins of an alien race are found entwined in the roots of a strange plant. Conflicts between generations arise as they struggle to understand one another and grapple with an unknowable alien intellect.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1)Anticipated release date: May 1

Goodreads synopsis: Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated—scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

Space Opera by Catherynne M Valente

Space OperaAnticipated release date: April 3

Goodreads synopsis: A century ago, the Sentience Wars tore the galaxy apart and nearly ended the entire concept of intelligent space-faring life. In the aftermath, a curious tradition was invented—something to cheer up everyone who was left and bring the shattered worlds together in the spirit of peace, unity, and understanding.

Once every cycle, the civilizations gather for Galactivision—part gladiatorial contest, part beauty pageant, part concert extravaganza, and part continuation of the wars of the past. Instead of competing in orbital combat, the powerful species that survived face off in a competition of song, dance, or whatever can be physically performed in an intergalactic talent show. The stakes are high for this new game, and everyone is forced to compete.

This year, though, humankind has discovered the enormous universe. And while they expected to discover a grand drama of diplomacy, gunships, wormholes, and stoic councils of aliens, they have instead found glitter, lipstick, and electric guitars. Mankind will not get to fight for its destiny—they must sing.

A band of human musicians, dancers, and roadies have been chosen to represent Earth on the greatest stage in the galaxy. And the fate of their species lies in their ability to rock.

The Philosopher’s Flight by Tom Miller

The Philosopher's FlightAnticipated release date: Feb 13

Goodreads synopsis: Eighteen-year-old Robert Weekes is a practitioner of empirical philosophy—an arcane, female-dominated branch of science used to summon the wind, shape clouds of smoke, heal the injured, and even fly. Though he dreams of fighting in the Great War as the first male in the elite US Sigilry Corps Rescue and Evacuation Service—a team of flying medics—Robert is resigned to mixing batches of philosophical chemicals and keeping the books for the family business in rural Montana, where his mother, a former soldier and vigilante, aids the locals.

When a deadly accident puts his philosophical abilities to the test, Robert rises to the occasion and wins a scholarship to study at Radcliffe College, an all-women’s school. At Radcliffe, Robert hones his skills and strives to win the respect of his classmates, a host of formidable, unruly women.

Robert falls hard for Danielle Hardin, a disillusioned young war hero turned political radical. However, Danielle’s activism and Robert’s recklessness attract the attention of the same fanatical anti-philosophical group that Robert’s mother fought years before. With their lives in mounting danger, Robert and Danielle band together with a team of unlikely heroes to fight for Robert’s place among the next generation of empirical philosophers—and for philosophy’s very survival against the men who would destroy it.

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

The Belles (The Belles #1)Anticipated release date: Feb 6

Goodreads synopsis: Camellia Beauregard is a Belle. In the opulent world of Orléans, Belles are revered, for they control Beauty, and Beauty is a commodity coveted above all else. In Orléans, the people are born gray, they are born damned, and only with the help of a Belle and her talents can they transform and be made beautiful.

But it’s not enough for Camellia to be just a Belle. She wants to be the favorite—the Belle chosen by the Queen of Orléans to live in the royal palace, to tend to the royal family and their court, to be recognized as the most talented Belle in the land. But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favorite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that the very essence of her existence is a lie—that her powers are far greater, and could be more dangerous, than she ever imagined. And when the queen asks Camellia to risk her own life and help the ailing princess by using Belle powers in unintended ways, Camellia now faces an impossible decision.

With the future of Orléans and its people at stake, Camellia must decide—save herself and her sisters and the way of the Belles—or resuscitate the princess, risk her own life, and change the ways of her world forever.

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Anticipated release date: Jan 30

Goodreads synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Furyborn (The Empirium Trilogy, #1)Anticipated release date: May 22

Goodreads synopsis: When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.

The Book of M by Peng Shepard

The Book of MAnticipated release date: June 5

Goodreads synopsis: One afternoon at an outdoor market in India, a man’s shadow disappears—an occurrence science cannot explain. He is only the first. The phenomenon spreads like a plague, and while those afflicted gain a strange new power, it comes at a horrible price: the loss of all their memories.

Ory and his wife Max have escaped the Forgetting so far by hiding in an abandoned hotel deep in the woods. Their new life feels almost normal, until one day Max’s shadow disappears too.

Knowing that the more she forgets, the more dangerous she will become to Ory, Max runs away. But Ory refuses to give up the time they have left together. Desperate to find Max before her memory disappears completely, he follows her trail across a perilous, unrecognizable world, braving the threat of roaming bandits, the call to a new war being waged on the ruins of the capital, and the rise of a sinister cult that worships the shadowless.

As they journey, each searches for answers: for Ory, about love, about survival, about hope; and for Max, about a new force growing in the south that may hold the cure.

King of Ashes by Raymond E Feist

King of Ashes (Firemane, #1)Anticipated release date: May 8

Goodreads synopsis: For centuries, the five greatest kingdoms of North and South Tembria, twin continents on the world of Garn, have coexisted in peace. But the balance of power is destroyed when four of the kingdoms violate an ancient covenant and betray the fifth: Ithrace, the Kingdom of Flames, ruled by Steveren Langene, known as “the Firemane” for his brilliant red hair. As war engulfs the world, Ithrace is destroyed and the Greater Realms of Tembria are thrust into a dangerous struggle for supremacy.
As a Free Lord, Baron Daylon Dumarch owes allegiance to no king. When an abandoned infant is found hidden in Daylon’s pavilion, he realizes that the child must be the missing heir of the slain Steveren. The boy is valuable—and vulnerable. A cunning and patient man, Daylon decides to keep the baby’s existence secret, and sends him to be raised on the Island of Coaltachin, home of the so-called Kingdom of Night, where the powerful and lethal Nocusara, the “Hidden Warriors,” legendary assassins and spies, are trained.

Years later, another orphan of mysterious provenance, a young man named Declan, earns his Masters rank as a weapons smith. Blessed with intelligence and skill, he unlocks the secret to forging King’s Steel, the apex of a weapon maker’s trade known by very few. Yet this precious knowledge is also deadly, and Declan is forced to leave his home to safeguard his life. Landing in Lord Daylon’s provinces, he hopes to start anew.

Soon, the two young men—an unknowing rightful heir to a throne and a brilliantly talented young swordsmith—will discover that their fates, and that of Garn, are entwined. The legendary, long-ago War of Betrayal has never truly ended . . . and they must discover the secret of who truly threatens their world.


And that’s it! All of these books I’m super pumped for. Hoooopefully I’ll be able to acquire them around their release (and actually read them soon after!)

If you’re lookin’ forward to any of these, lemme know! 😀

I’m getting married today!

Hello! No book post today. Just wanted to say woo, I found a human who likes me enough to look at me and say ‘yeah, she’ll do for the next half-century’.

I am excited. Currently drinking coffee by my lonesome, about to run to a Dr’s appointment (hush I know – couldn’t get any other time off work though @@) and then all the marriagey stuff will happen.

By 3pm GMT-5 today, I’ll be hitched! And then 2:45am tonight on Aug 2nd, I’ll be leaving my house to drive to the airport to jump on a plane to go to my honeymoon! 😀 I’ll be there for about two weeks, during which I’ve pre-written a bunch of posts to be published here. So forgive me if I don’t reply to anything you might say to be right away – I have no idea how my internet will be.

AHHHHH I’M SO EXCITED I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY. I LOVE YOU ALL.

The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag

Mid-Year Book Freakout.png

Wasn’t it just two days ago or something that everyone was gripin’ about it being 2016 and it still being 2016 and it still still being 2016? Now 2017 is half way over. D: Guys, I’m turning 27 this year – I dun wanna!

I’ve done this tag before, but this is one that’s definitely redo-able every year. 😀 And I was even tagged this year! Ann @AnnsReadingCorner tagged me and I saw it and went ‘What! No, it’s way too early for this tag’. And then I realized it was June. AHH DAMN YOU SPACE TIME CONTINUUM.

Anyways, if you’re interested, here is my 2015 post.


The best book you’ve read so far this year

I mentioned this in my last post, but by far it’s the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. This has quickly become one of my favorite series ever. It follows a handful of character in kingdom threatened by betrayal and war. The magic system in this book is really neat: The users, called ‘Drafters’, can take in visible light and ‘draft’ it into physical material. Most people can only draft one or two colors. A few can draft more. But only The Prism, the religious and political head of the country, can draft all of them. So those who can draft are assets to a kingdom – they populate the government and the army. They’re taught to hone their skills in a training school. And the more a drafter uses her abilities, the quicker that drafter is brought to death. Using the magic kills a person from the inside out.

This series is so good, man. I’m currently in the middle of the third book. There are four out total and I think there will be a fifth.

Your favorite sequel of the year

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)In lieu of just naming the above series again, I choose A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. I read the entire trilogy this year, and this was my favorite out of the three by far. The first one was decent by Tamlin rubbed me the wrong way and the third one’s plot was just a bit too convenient. Like, the plot-points were all very uh… predictable, I guess. Not super great. But the second one, I loved. Oh, I know that this series has its issues as a whole, this book included, but this book was such a fresh breath of air after reading Acotar.

A new release you haven’t read but really want to

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland has caught my eye. It came out all of five days ago, so that’s why I haven’t gotten to it yet. :”D The name ‘Neal Stephenson’ pulled me in and then the goofy synopsis of this book kept me here. The following is from Goodreads:

When Melisande Stokes, an expert in linguistics and languages, accidently meets military intelligence operator Tristan Lyons in a hallway at Harvard University, it is the beginning of a chain of events that will alter their lives and human history itself. The young man from a shadowy government entity approaches Mel, a low-level faculty member, with an incredible offer. The only condition: she must sign a nondisclosure agreement in return for the rather large sum of money.

Tristan needs Mel to translate some very old documents, which, if authentic, are earth-shattering. They prove that magic actually existed and was practiced for centuries. But the arrival of the scientific revolution and the Age of Enlightenment weakened its power and endangered its practitioners. Magic stopped working altogether in 1851, at the time of the Great Exhibition at London’s Crystal Palace—the world’s fair celebrating the rise of industrial technology and commerce. Something about the modern world “jams” the “frequencies” used by magic, and it’s up to Tristan to find out why.

And so the Department of Diachronic Operations—D.O.D.O. —gets cracking on its real mission: to develop a device that can bring magic back, and send Diachronic Operatives back in time to keep it alive . . . and meddle with a little history at the same time. But while Tristan and his expanding operation master the science and build the technology, they overlook the mercurial—and treacherous—nature of the human heart.

So what: Sci-fi, magic, thriller, time-travel… I need it man. It’s gonna be mine.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

Solutions and Other ProblemsIn theory this book is coming out September 7th, but take that with a grain of salt: it’s been pushed back a few times now.

Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh is my most-anticipated release coming up. A follow-up/continuation/whatevs to Hyberbole and a Half, it follows similar themes and I’m sure it’s going to be as funny and meaningful as the first one. I’m super excited for it. 😀

 

Your biggest disappointment

WeaveworldThat would be Weaveworld by Clive Barker. I don’t know what it was about this book, but it just didn’t grab me. I got to slightly below half-way and had to call it a day. The worst part is that this is one of my mother’s favorite books and now I have to tell her I didn’t like it. I still haven’t given it back to her yet because it’s a conversation I don’t wanna have. xD

 

 

Biggest surprise of the year

Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone, #1)The Darkling from the Grisha trilogy. And yeah, I know the question is asking for a book, but this character was my biggest surprise. This character resparked my obsession with fanfiction hawhaw, and it came waaay out of left field. Weird. 😀

 

 

 

Favorite new to you or debut author

Brent Weeks, whom I mentioned above. He’s great. :”D Totes mcgoats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your new fictional crush

Nuuuupe.

New favorite character

I choose Kip Guile from Weeks’ Lightbringer series. He’s just the greatest :”D AND I’LL STOP MENTIONING THIS SERIES SOON, I SWEAR.

A book that made you cry

None…. yet

A book that made you happy

…this is me trying really hard not to mention Weeks’ series again…

Your favorite book to movie adaption that you’ve seen this year

A Monster CallsMost definitely A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (well… its expanded release was Jan 6th, so it counts. It counts. If you haven’t read this yet.. please do. Get the illustrated version, it makes the book.

 

 

 

Favorite book post you’ve done so far

….hehehehe

That would be my On Borrow Books: A Harrowing Tale of Betrayal post. No contest, man. If you want to read it, prepare to have your jimmies rustled.

The most beautiful book you bought/received this year

That would easily be Saturn Run by John Sanford and Ctein… I’m just gonna link my instagram video of the thing. Man, I can’t get over it!

IT'S SO LOVELY 😢 . . . #bookstagram #bookhaul #books #beautiful

A post shared by Emily (@embuhley) on

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

Everything on my 17 in 2017 list, man. I’m slacking. I’M SLACKING.


and that’s it! I’m currently sitting at 27/50 books read for the year, so sliiiiightly ahead of schedule. Now that I’m working full time and spending 3hrs/day commuting on top of that, we’ll see if I can keep up the pace, haha.

Happy reading!
