Top Ten Tuesday: Top New Series I Want To Start

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish! And this week the theme is….. Top Ten New Series I Want To Start.

I’m super busy (and forgot to schedule this post in advance, so here I am typing away on a Monday night) so this will have to be a Top Five Tuesday for me. (doesn’t sound so good without the alliteration really).

ONE — Vampire Academy

Everyone raves about this series and I barely know what it’s about. I may have accidentally ordered it though… So will be starting it soon hopefully!

TWO — Daughter of Smoke and Bone

This is the series I always got confused with Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha series. No idea why… Anyway I’m definitely wanting to start this series, hope I love it as much as everyone else seems to!

THREE — Dangerous Girls

(and Dangerous Boys)

Not sure if this even counts as a series but it’s going on the list anyway (muhahahahaha). Some bloggers who I love have LOVED both these books and they do look fab fab fab, so yep, want to start!

FOUR — These Broken Stars

I think the series is called ‘Starbound’ as a whole, the next book is out this December I think… But I’m definitely gonna be reading this and hopefully the next book aswell! Yay Sci-Fi!

FIVE — His Fair Assassin

ooooooh I LOVED the first book Grave Mercy (my review here), and thought it’s not a new new series the third book is out this November so it’s new enough for me! Just bought the second book and cannot cannot wait for the third, COME ON NOVEMBER!

So that’s my top ten five for this week! What do you think? What other five do you think I should be dying to start?? x x

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish! And this week the theme is….. Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit!

travel with books
I feel like I’ve travelled all over the world, throughout time and space and even to fantasy lands. Then I realise that actually I barely leave my room except to go to work. Books can take us anywhere.

There are a lot of places books have made me want to visit, some real, some fantasy. This is less of a top ten and more like a random Ten;

New York

New-York-01a
— so many books are set here, most recently Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld and I’m just dying to go there. Plus they have some pretty spectacular bookshops, or so I’ve heard.

Middle Earth

middle-earth-map
–Lord of the Rings? Uh yes please. I want to walk the Shire and visit the Elves and Dwarves. I would even like a trip into Mordor. I think this would be my number one place to live if I could live in a fictional world, its so gorgeous!

Dauntless HQ

DIVERGENT
— Not sure about the set of the film, but Dauntless headquarters how I imagined it was like perrrrrfect. In fact the entire Chicago area, I loved the imagery I got reading those books. YAY. (Plus I just kinda wanna be cool and Dauntless.)

The Night Circus

TheNightCircus
— If you’ve read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern then you’ll know why this is in my top ten. Guys, if you haven’t read it just trust me, best circus ever. The smells the food, the layout the fancy clock at the entrance. Not to mention all the magical acts and wow just wow. WHY ISN’T IT REAL?!

Inkheart

Inkheart_book
— Ok, so the book Inkheart is about a book (also called Inkheart) that characters travel out of (and to) and oh my would I just LOVE to go into the that book. It sounds so magical. Yes please.

Hogwarts

Hogwarts_boats_1
— obviously. Hogwarts, Hogsmeade yes please yes please..

London

london_2423609b_3051158a
— I realise I only live like a couple of hours from London on the train but I’ve never really visited properly. I’ve been down a couple of time but never looked round much, get in get out. Its too busy and everyones trushing about too much. But so many books centre in London and I’d love to go around and see all the landmarks (and bookshops).

Amsterdam

amsterdam
–yes this is because of TFIOS but don’t judge. (my feeling about that book are so jumbled up I can’t tell you my opinion on it) I’ve always liked the look of Amsterdam, just not the too dodgy parts.

City of Masks

1208889
— technically its like 16th century Venice. But I want to go and meet the characters of this book. I loved this book when I was younger (which actually wasn’t that long ago). Goodreads page here.

Wolf Brother

1871404
— this is a book by Michelle Paver, and they live in an ancent forest and they’re all so at one with nature. They live in their little Clans and respect the earth and animals and it’s just so great to read. Really would love to live there, without all the scary stuff going on!

So that’s my random Ten Places Books made me want to visit, what are yours? Would you visit any of my Ten? Which is your favourite? x x

Top Ten Tuesday (Fall TBR)

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish!

And this week the theme is….. Top Ten Books on your Fall TBR!

photo-autumn-leaves-maple-books-favim-com-486374

YAY, Autumn is finally here! My absolute favourite season. Its chilly enough to justify dragging out the comfy jumpers, fluffy socks and cosy scarfs. But it’s not too cold that I lose all feeling in my face! And what’s better than kicking through the leaves and hearing them rustle and crunch under your boots?! Then you can relax with a nice warm coffee and read a book, using a crisp orange leaf as a bookmark.

So what books are at the top of my TBR list/pile/mountain for this autumn?
