Don’t you just love picking up standalone books sometimes? Taking a break from all the book series can definitely be relaxing at times. I’ll admit I haven’t read that many standalones but the ones I have read are some of my favorites and ones that I’d recommend for sure!
Do you ever make a list of books for the year that you just have to get to? I’ve made a list this year! I’m hoping this will keep my accountable and remind me to get to these. Some are backlist titles and others are new releases. Some of these I’ve put off reading for way too long and hopefully 2020 will be the year I pick them up. Continue reading for a look at my must read titles!
Shadow and Bone
Author: Leigh Bardugo // Published: June 5, 2012
Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.
Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.
Welcome to my new blog series, Monthly movie recap!
I’ve gotten a lot more time to watch movies and shows this year than I ever have. My last semester of university actually turned out to be a lot less stressful than my previous semesters. I’ve been catching up on shows and movies and I need a space to share that so here we are!
Shadow of the Batgirl
Author: Sarah Kuhn & Nicole Goux // Published: February 4, 2020
Cassandra Cain, teenage assassin, isn’t exactly Batgirl material…not yet, at least. But with Batgirl missing from Gotham City, can Cassandra defy her destiny and take on a heroic mantle of her very own? She’ll have to go through an identity crisis of epic proportions to find out.
After a soul-shattering moment that sends Cass reeling, she’ll attempt to answer this question the only way she knows how: learning everything she possibly can about her favorite hero-Batgirl. But Batgirl hasn’t been seen in Gotham for years, and when Cass’s father threatens the world she has grown to love, she’ll have to step out of the shadows and overcome her greatest obstacle-that voice inside her head telling her she can never be a hero.
Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex and I Love You So Mochi, takes on one of her favorite heroes for a new audience of readers. Featuring the edgy art style of Nicole Goux, Shadow of the Batgirl tells the harrowing story of a girl who overcomes the odds to find her unique identity.
Okay, teenage me is thriving! On Twitter the other day it was announced that there would be a The Vampire Diaries themed readathon happening in June titles The Readathon Diaries (Click on that link to get all the details). I of course would never pass up a chance to join a readathon like this. There are three teams to choose from (Werewolves, Witches, and Vampires) and from the headline I think you know which team I chose. This came at the perfect time because my best friends and I decided to rewatch The Vampire Diaries together next month! Keep reading to see the book on my tbr for this readathon.
In these difficult times we may not be in the mood for reading. I’ve personally been through it and I know many of you have been too. Sometimes we need to change up our reading and others times we need to give ourselves time. If you’re in the mood to read something different or comfortable, here are some books for you to try!
