Top 5 forgettable books

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday BannerHappy Wednesday!

Today’s topic is forgettable books… which lends the question, how am I supposed to talk about them if I don’t remember what they’re about?

But whatevs. Obviously, this is going to be mostly a visual post. All of these books I have read, but they made the list because I looked at them and hadn’t the foggiest what they were about. 😛 I’ll put my rating by them as well, but goodness knows why I rated them as I did.


The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

The Warrior Heir (The Heir Chronicles, #1)All I can remember is someone having a cool aunt… and maybe a scene in a subway?

Rating: DNF

 

Eragon by Chistopher Paolini

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, #1)I remember the main character starting on a farm like in Star Wars, and then there being a talking dragon like in Temeraire…

Rating: DNF

 

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

Through the WoodsEhm… I remember woods.. and a lot of red and black art. That’s literally it.

Rating: 3.5/5

 

 

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1)I remember liking this one actually, and I think I might have written a review for it? I just remember two female main characters and me not really liking one of them.

Rating: 4/5

 

My True Love Gave to Me by a slew of authors

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday StoriesI can’t tell you what a single story in this book is about. That’s how much of an impact it had on me… I bought it, read it, and promptly got rid of it. I haven’t purchased any of the other ‘short story compilations’ along these theme since.

Rating: 3/5

 

.


And that’s it! Hopefully next week, my tfw will have a bit more substance – writing about books I don’t remember is difficult, hawhaw.

Happy reading!

We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby | Blabber

We Are Never Meeting In Real LifeWe Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby
275 pages
Nonfiction/Memoir
Read Dec 27th 2017-Jan 4th, 2018
Spoiler free blabber

I bought this book because of the cat.

I was in Connecticut, visiting a friend who had moved away a couple years ago, and we were perusing the shelves in a local bookstore in New Haven, CT, when I decided I wanted to buy something different. I had been eyeing a few fantasy novels that have been on my radar, but who knows when I would get to them. So I wanted something that I knew nothing about, that would remind me of the trip due it being different to what I normally gravitate towards.

And then there was this book: bright yellow with a soggy cat on the front. And it spoke to me. I grabbed it, skimmed the back and saw that Roxanne Gay had blurbed it and that was enough for me. I bought it and began reading it that night.

This book was pretty much what I expected it to be, once I read more thoroughly what it was about. It’s one of those books that makes me want to write a book full of my blabberings, because that’s what it is. It had elements I found similar to Yes Please, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) and many other modern memoirs of women living in various states of life. I tend to like those kinds of books, so I ended up rather enjoying this one as well.

Samantha Irby strikes me as a person that I felt, what, partially similar to? I guess? Parts of her writing had me in hysterics from how close it hit to home. I was laughing way, way too hard at parts of this book, and the urge to meet this woman and shake her hand was really strong. Other parts I didn’t relate to, so I read those bits with interest, getting to see another perspective on things that I held a different opinion on, and expanding my world view at the same time.

Hey, it’s almost like we’re two people with our own thoughts and feelings, haha.

Overall though, I liked this book. Irby goes through various different stories of her life. A couple of them had me laughing so hard, a couple of them had me reading them out loud to my husband, trying not to crack up while I read, and seeing him shaking his head and smiling at me, waiting to see if I’d crumble under my giggles.

One of my favorite parts was the cat, Hellen Keller, whom the author brought home mostly against her will and then grew to grudgingly love. Helen was hysterical. The way she was narrated reminded me of every single female cat I’ve ever owned. She had such a ‘tude, I loved it.

Samantha Irby’s book will stick with me, I think. And that’s what I wanted when I bought it – a good experience reading that I could associate with hanging out with my friend in that one bookstore in Connecticut. So thank ya Ms Irby, you gave me a good few days as I read your writing, trying to keep my cat Nina from walking on the book like you had to finagle around Helen cat.

3.5/5 stars

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! 😀

Top 5 books I didn’t get to in 2017

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Guess what day it is!

Today’s topic are books I wanted to get to last year, but didn’t (so like, all of them). I just posted a 10 in 2018 list, so these books will be separate from that. I may or may not get to these this year, but they’re ones that I was staring at longingly as I was reading other books. 😛

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here.


5 – Outlander  by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander (Outlander, #1)I bought this book I think three years ago. It’s been on my ‘blank in 20blank’ lists a couple times, but stillll haven’t gotten to it, yet. I’ve heard mixed things about it – some love it, others really, really don’t. So that’s kept me from buying more than the first one in the series until I try it out myself. Maybe this year!

 

 

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Bird BoxThis is the one book I’ve been wanting to read that I know nothing about. And I’ve been told to keep it that way – that going into it blind is the best way to go about it. Sooo hopefully will get to it soon? Maybe?

 

 

 

The Scar by China Mieville

The Scar (Bas-Lag, #2)This is the second book in the New Crobuzon trilogy of companion books, the first being Perdido Street Station, which I read a few years ago and adored. I read another of Mieville’s books this past year and am convinced that I like his fantasies more than his sci-fis, so now I’m doubly looking forward to this one.

 

 

 

Sea of Ghosts by Alan Campbell

Sea of Ghosts (The Gravedigger Chronicles, #1)This book, man. This book was one of those ‘went on a journey to get it’ books. One of my favorite series of all time is the Deepgate Codex by Alan Campbell, and shortly after finishing that when I was in high school, I found this book, and I started looking for it.

…and I kept looking.

Turns out, the US release of this book was very limited to non-existent. It was only released in Europe. This was before bookdepository was a thing in my mind, so getting it was next to impossible.

And then, one day, I saw it in a used bookstore. I about screamed.

…I still haven’t read it.

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

The Invasion of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #2)I read the first book two years ago and really liked it – I recently acquired the third book in the series, so I’m hoping to marathon all three, just rereading the first because I don’t remember what was going on. Wish me luck!

 

 

 

.


And that’s it! There are a billion others, but these are the top of the list I think.

Happy reading!

10 in 2018

10 in 2018

Hello! Last year I did a post called 17 in 2017, where I stated seventeen books I wanted to read this past year. Well. I read about half of those, hawhaw. Obviously that goal was too lofty for me. And my mood was fickle, I guess. So instead of going up to 18 for 2018, I’m going to drop to ten titles, and this is where it’s likely to stay for the years to come.

So without further ado, these are (currently) the top 10 books I most want to read in 2018:

So basically, all of that is fantasy, minus one or two titles. It’s gonna be fantastical year! 😀 If you’ve read any of the above and feel I should prioritize them over others, please let me know! Happy reading!

Beat the Backlist 2018!

Beat the Backlist

Hello! Today I’m announcing my participation in the Beat the Backlist Challenge, hosted by NovelKnight!

This is a neato thing that I came across the other day and decided that it would be perfect for me!

It’s one of the neatest challenges I’ve ever come across – what you do is sign up and you’re assigned to one of four teams. Each team earns points and at the end of each month, a member of the team with the most points wins a book of their choosing! So there will be twelve winners total – this thing lasts all year! 😀 (and the sign-ups are open all year, hint hint)

To earn points for your team, all you have to do is read books that were not published in 2018! So it’s perfect motivation to me to read the backlog of unread books on my shelves. None of the books I own have been published this year, so I have about 300 potential reads to go through! Any book counts – rereads, manga, novels, nonfiction, all of it! The only limitation is its publication date. 2017 or earlier, peeps.

So when this post goes live, I’ll use it to officially sign up and then come back and edit it and insert my assigned team! 😀 So if you’re reading and there’s no team here yet, you’re reading it super early and I haven’t been assigned yet, hawhaw. Otherwise if there’s a team here now, then I have one!

My Team:

https://i0.wp.com/novelknight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/BTB2018_DDTeam_Transparent.png

Other things to note:

There will also be weekly instagram prompts all year to go along with the challenge, which are listed here!  I think this will be a fun thing to do! 😀

My goals:

  • Dedicate at least 2/3rds of my books read in 2018 to this challenge
  • Participate in at least 2/3rds of the Instagram prompts (btw, shameless plug: add me on Instagram, I wanna see all your lovely books)
    • (if you add me, be prepared to also see cats, coffee and alcohol)

And that’s it! Happy reading! 😀

2018 Reading Resolutions

2018 Reading Resolutions

Typing an ‘8’ at the end of the year is weird.

Hello! Welcome to the future! Today’s post is technically a Top 5 Wednesday post, but considering I have more than five and don’t want to limit them or make a separate post for the rest, they’re all going in here and that’s just how it’s goin’ down. I’m also going to post my non-book related resolutions, but I’ll separate that out into a different chunk so you don’t have to read it if you don’t wanna.

So without further blabbering:


2018 Reading Resolutions

Book Related:

  • Complete my Goodreads Challenge of 40 books

Last year, I set a goal of fifty books, which I achieved, but at this point in my life I don’t actually have too much time to read, which is a bummer. So to reach my goal this year, I found myself gravitating towards shorter books, just to hit the goal. I have so many huge, juicy fantasy novels I wanna read, so lowering my goal will allow me to mentally handle it better, hawhaw.

  • Complete my 10 in 2018 list of books (will be posted Jan 7th and retroactively linked here)

Last year, I made a 17 in 2017 list, which I finished about half of them. So, I’m going to transfer all the ones I didn’t finish onto this year’s list and add a couple more that are really speaking to me at the moment.

  • Keep book buying low – no more than 6-8 books every three months
    • Gifts do not count towards this.

This past year, I put myself on a buying ban for three months, cold turkey. So at this point I’m kind of used to having no new books, I guess. So now that I’m off the ban, I want to focus on lowering my TBR. This will only be helped by limiting how many books I buy. No more 10, 11, 12 books-per-month hauls!

  • Get my physical TBR down to 270 books. It currently sits at 301.

Yeah yeah I know. 270 is still a lot. At least if the apocalypse happens, I’ll have plenty to read while zombies swarm the streets.

I started this last year on April 1st. It’s part of reddit’s fantasy subreddit activities. It’s been lots of fun so far! 😀 And I hope to finish it up and start the next one as well.

I just found out about this today! It’s a challenge that has you focus on books that were not published in 2018… meaning literally everything on my shelves right now. For full details, click that linky I’ve put in the bullet point! Otherwise, as stated, I’ll post my ‘official’ participation thingy on Jan 6th. 😀

Blog Related:

  • Post seasonal (not monthly) book hauls

As stated earlier, I just can’t maintain the vast amount of books I was buying every month. Can’t do it.

  • Maintain a S-W-S posting schedule (with the occasional extra post if I’ve got neat things goin’ on)

I started this schedule mid way through 2017 and it has suited me well so far, minus November when I was doing nanowrimo. I like it.

  • Keep my To Do list of pending tags under five items at any one time

Currently it’s at zero (I think), which is good. I’m all caught up!

This is one I’ve had trouble with in the past. I’ll just let this list build up for like, six months without updating it, then I have to go through months of posts to do it. 😛 So doing this will help with my santiy, hawhaw.

  • Write blabbers for at least 1/3 of the books I read

I feel like I don’t write enough blabbers. This past year, my average rating of a book was 3.9. So like… meh to it was good. The books that really stuck out did get blabbers. There were just a lot that didn’t speak to me, though. -_- So I’m hoping to pick books that give me a lot to talk about.

And that’s it I think! This is a pretty good list, but it should be attainable with a little bit of self-discipline. I don’t think I’ve named anything too strenuous, which is the point: My goals should be realistic, otherwise I’m just gonna get discouraged. 😛

So if you’re just here for the books, this is where you pop out – I’m gonna switch to more personal resolutions now. 😀 Happy reading!


Personal Resolutions:

  • Exercise two times per week

This one is probably my most needed goal. Anyone who has met me knows that I could stand to exercise more. Currently, I’m lucky if I do once a week. So I figured picking a solid times-per-week to exercise will grow a habit if I can stick with it, and then I can increase from there. But I wanted to start slow so I’m not overwhelmed.

  • Log all meals in MyFitnessPal

I’m actually fairly decent at doing this already. I have a 700-something day streak going on at the moment, but I just need to get to actually logging all meals more consistently.

  • Make a wedding/honeymoon scrapbook

I bought the stuff to make this scrap book shortly after returning home from my honeymoon mid-August, but I have yet to actually put anything in it. I feel future-me will really appreciate it thirty years down the line.

  • Make a budget

With my husband’s and my paychecks coming in every month, at the moment we’re just kinda paying things as they come up. So far, with just the two of us, it’s going ok. But, we’ll need to do financial planning at some point in our future, so making a budget to start now will only help us. My student loans have just started coming in, too, so I need to look at how much money we actually have left every month now.

  • Start saving for a house

This one kinda goes hand in hand with the previous one. We’re renting, currently three months into an 18 month lease. I’d like to be able to put a down payment on a house by the time this lease is over… So that’ll be a 2019 thing. But I want to start saving now, if possible.

  • Take care of my health as issues arise

I recently was able to get health insurance again when I started my job, and as of Jan 1, I’ve switched onto my husband’s (his is decidedly better and cheaper), so I want to handle health issues as soon as they pop up, maybe even do preventative physicals and stuff. I’m definitely the ‘ignore it and hope it goes away’ kind of person, and I know that will eventually come to bite me in the butt. So I want to be more uh… on top of it, I guess.

  • Learn Python and R

This is a career-oriented goal. I’m a software developer, currently working in C# and .NET. I also know SQL, Java and C++. I’d really like to learn Python and R, though. I feel like the direction I want my career to go would benefit from those. Ideally this goal will go hand in hand with creating an online portfolio of projects and spiffing up my resume.

  • Maintain a Duolingo streak

Currently, I’m around a 50 day streak, I think. I’m refreshing my German, which I know a roughly tourist-level amount of. I’d like to be able to speak it conversationally though. Once I finish the Duo tree again (I’ve done it before but they added extra lessons) I want to branch into the translation side of the site and further my vocabulary.


And that’s it! I’m going to include little updates on all resolutions, booky and personal, in my monthly wrap-ups to keep myself accountable and let me know where to focus.

Happy reading!
