TwilightI want to be cool and say Harry Potter or Percy Jackson… but that is not that case. I have been an on and off reader as a kid, but it wasn’t until Twilight came out that I started ravaging books like I do now. So Twilight is the book that I have to say started my love for reading. I mean, who didn’t love Twilight at the time? Don’t lie to yourselves, you’ve all read it at some point!

HP and the Goblet of FireThis is where Harry Potter comes in. I don’t care if it’s barely been 20 years since it has come out. I believe it deserves to be called a classic now. Sadly I have only read the first 4 books in this series… I know you’re judging me now. I was late getting my Hogwarts Letter, what can I say? My favorite so far is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! Such an EPIC book from beginning to end!

Red QueenI don’t usually fall off the hype train, but with Red Queen it definitely happened. This book was marketed EVERYWHERE! I couldn’t escape it. So I went out and bought it. I read Red Queen and I enjoyed it. Then a year later Glass Sword came out… and that was the hardest book to get through. Horrible characterization and boring plot. That is the point I jumped off the hype train.

Legacy of KingsI don’t usually get annoyed with book tropes as other readers might. So with Legacy of Kings I didn’t mind it. Legacy of Kings has a love triangle somewhat, there is a war that threatens to destroy an empire, insta-love, the ending leaves you wanting more, strong and smart female protagonist, etc. But guess what? The book is still amazing and everyone should be giving it a chance! Because I said so.

A Game of Thrones-cough cough- The gargantuan series that is A Song of Ice and Fire. First off the shortest book in that series is 761 pages. I haven’t even read a book that large before. Second, George R.R. Martin is super old and he might not even finish the series before he bites the dust. Why start something that won’t get finished? I think I’ll wait and see. (Sorry is that is all morbid and insensitive)

The Serpent KingSo can interpret this category as a book that was so horrifying that I couldn’t sleep at night, or a book that was just so good that I stayed up all night to read it. I will go with the latter and say The Serpent King. Normally I don’t stay up late to read, my sleep is precious to me. BUT with The Serpent King I couldn’t wait, I had to finish it. It was so good!

Falling KingdomsMy ultimate OTP comes from my favorite book series Falling Kingdoms, and it is none other then Magnus and Cleo. They were enemies, turned arranged marriage, turned enemies, turned blossoming love, turned torn apart etc. They have had so many ups and downs it’s hard to keep up, but I love it! My second favorite OTP I just want to add in there is also from Falling Kingdoms, and that is Nic and Ashur. Those boys make my heart flutter and I can’t wait to see how their relationship develops!

Court of FivesA recent read of mine was Court of Fives. Although the plot wasn’t quite clear and it felt more like a build up novel, I loved the character’s and their growth. There is so much potential with this series and I can’t wait to find out what happens next with Jess and Kal. I could not put this book done. It was super face paced with the whole book happening over a span of a week I believe. It was awesome!

pokemon-tag09-eevee

Falling KingdomsI know you guys are probably sick of reading about my favorite series, Falling Kingdoms. BUT I can say that I will never get sick of seeing more sequels or spin offs for this series. It is already a 6 book series with a 3 book trilogy spin off. But I am hoping that is not where things end for my little world of Mytica. I NEED MORE! (And look at that German cover… so beautiful!)

pokemon-tag14-magikarp

Storm SirenI am quite surprised how good the Storm Siren Trilogy was. I really enjoyed the world and story building from this series. The characters were lively, strong willed, and badass. The powers were cool, and the villain was completely evil, not a good bone in his body. I definitely recommend this series to anyone who wants to start out in the fantasy genre!

Empire of StormsNo one can say they haven’t heard of the Throne of Glass series. It’s such a big deal in the YA book community. You either love it or hate, or hate to love it. The hype train is still going with this one as we await Empire of Storms to be released in September. With the way that the story is going, I am still very excited to read this series! I need more sexy angst!

Ravenclaw Book Covers.pngWho doesn’t wish they owned more Harry Potter editions? I sure do! I’m totally going to steal this answer from Aentee because I didn’t even know I could get an exclusive Hogwarts House edition. All 7 books with your favorite Hogwarts House covers. Gimme gimme gimme the Ravenclaw Editions please!

Boy RobotI am super excited for Boy Robot to come out in November. I have been seeing a lot of good buzz around this book. And following the author of Twitter is pretty amazing and entertaining. For those of you who may not have heard of this book please go check it out and Good Reads!

Red RisingNormally I would say Morgan Rhodes… but I want to flip the switch a little bit. I will hands done auto buy anything that Pierce Brown puts out there. I loved the Red Rising series and I am super excited for Iron Gold next year! I even went out and funded his Kickstarter for Red Rising merch. I got a House Mars T-shirt and 3 Red Rising pins and some cool maps. Pierce is going to make me broke!

WarcrossSo far I have only had to wait a year between book releases. So I don’t have to wait too long. But I can say that I am looking forward to Marie Lu’s new series coming out in 2017 titled Warcross. So far there is no cover yet, or a release date for that matter. So I can say that I am highly anticipating this book release!


Well there you have it. The Pokemon GO Book Tag. How obsessed with this game are you? I go out of my way to play daily. I even ride my bike around just to catch Pokemon! That is dedication I tell you! So come and join in on this fun Pokemon Go inspired Tag created by Aentee!

Hyped Books I’ve Never Read | Top 10 Tuesdays

Top10TuesdayHey guys!

I’ve decided to join the Top 10 Tuesday Weekly fun on my blog because why the hell not? Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This weeks topic is the Top 10 Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. I had a teeny bit of trouble gathering ten books for this list because I am always reading the hyped up books when they come out. I just can’t help it. I mean what’s the point of all the hype if the book isn’t any good? So the books I put on this list are the hyped books I have yet to read, because lets face it, I’m going to read them sooner or later!

10) The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze RunnerI’ve seen the movie and I’ve been slacking on picking up this book. Maybe 2015 will be the year I do it!

9) I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the SunThis has been recommended to me from several different people. It has won awards. The plot sounds like a book I would love. All this awesomeness and I have yet to read it.

8) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork AngelI am slowly but surely getting through The Mortal Instruments series so I can finally start the prequel to it all. I’m only several years behind the hype.

7) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

FangirlNaturally after reading Eleanor and Park I wanted to immediately start Fangirl… but…but…yeah. I still haven’t read it.

6) The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

The Final EmpireBooktube exploded with this book and has literally hyped this book up so much that I want to go as far as to purchase the UK covers. Come on, just look at the beauty of them!

5) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

A Game of ThronesYes this book is huge and wordy. And yes I will eventually read it. I just have to grow some balls first.

4) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven BoysI am finally going to cave and read this book. I purchased it and it’s close up on the TBR list. Look out for it soon!

3) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and BoneSame goes for this glory! After seeing the hype for Six of Crows, a story held in the same world as this one, I will naturally have to read this one first!

2) Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red RisingThis freaking book has been taunting me on my TBR list for so goddamn long. I’ve already started it but have since put it down. Not because its not interesting or good, I’m just weird like that.

1) An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the AshesOk, this book. Do I even have to say anything? It was so good that it went from being a standalone book to a freaking series. It’s so hyped I don’t even know what to do with it! Duh, I will read it.

Well there you have it. The Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. Let me know what you guys think of my list and share with me what are some of your hyped books you have yet to read.

See ya next time,
