Hello and welcome to top 5 Wednesday! This weeks topic is characters whose fitness routines that you want. You can choose basically anything that you want to be whether it is characters who are fast, good at dancing or even foodies! The possibilities are endless! I am going to be talking about

001. Aldrik Solaris
This gem of a character is from Air Awakens by Elise Kova and oh my gosh, I am obsessed with him. He is my absolute favorite character in the world, he beats out every other character ever, but that is a topic for another post. Aldrik is a prince and a powerful sorcerer so it only makes sense that he is strong, fast and agile and almost unbreakable. I would honestly love to be unbreakable (or almost) like Aldrik because of y’all have no idea how clumsy I am. I m always spraining my ankles, hurting myself and I just need to be in a bubble. Or I can just have Aldrik follow me around and make sure I don’t get hurt.

002. Cal Calore
He is from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and he is another character I love with all of my heart. Cal is described as being a super good dancer and he is also good at making things. But oh my goodness the dancing. I am very conscious about dancing and Cal would help me get over my fear of dancing.

003. Nikolai Lantsov
If y’all don’t know who he is then… what are you even doing? He is from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo and he is full of sass. I would honestly love Nikolai as my best friend because I think he would always make me laugh no matter what. Nikolai would be very good at teaching me jokes and just probably interact with people, in general, a lot more… better? If what I am saying makes any sense.

004. Elias Veturius 
Another gem of a man and he is from An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Elias is lovely and I would just like him to be around me in general okay. No explanation needed.

005. Merik Nihar 
He is from Truthwitch by Susan Dennard and he is glorious. I would like for him to teach me how to sail the seven seas and just strong and brave.

So that concludes my list and honestly? I would love for all these beautiful men to exist in real life.  But if I did, this doggo is the perfect picture of how I would be.


Honestly, I don’t think that I have come across a sequel that I have not liked. To me, the second book generally is better. This week top  5 Wednesday is sequels that you adore, series or trilogies you feel got better with the second book. So without further ado, here are the books that I absolutely adored!

001. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
I was so down to spite read this because I lived for Feyre and Tamlin and I had heard spoilers about ACOMAF and was like NOPE I’m so mad. I ranted to several of my friends about this because I was angry. But friends, I was in for such an awakening. I was in for such a delightful surprise because this was so fantastic.

002. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
Okay not an improvement from the first because the first book was just as incredible, this whole series is incredible so I had to give it a shout out and y’all should uh, read this??? The second book absolutely wrecked me and it will probably wreck you too.

003. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
I feel like I am one of the only ones who actually loved this book. I thought it was quite reasonable and understanding for how the characters acted and loved what the author did! I just know the author will kill me with the last book!

004. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
The book where Celeana died lol. If you’ve read up to Empire of Storms, you know what I mean. But I feel like this book is the best of the series and totally overlooked for all the books Rowan is in.

005. Seige and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Nikolai Lantsov was introduced in this, that’s all y’all need to know.

So that’s my list! Comment down below and let me know some of your favorite sequels are!


I have seriously been slacking with my goals. I post them with every intention of doing them, yet for some dang reason I completely get uninspired and do absolutely nothing. I’m going to change a few things around here because I’ve just felt very… blah. I feel like my anxiety has been a huge factor in this. A big thing I want to do is be a lot more organized than I am right now especially when it comes to my blog. I will definitely… probably be posting something about that sometime in the future so stay tuned!

So this month is very ambitious because I feel like it is the last month that I can read as much as I want because school starts very soon. I am also switching things up this month and I aim to read only arcs. With that, I have decided to participate in ARCAugust hosted by readsleeprepeat because y’all… I have a lot of arcs I need to read ASAP and I feel like this will motivate me.

So without further ado, let’s get onto the list! Last month I read nine books, I’m going to be a little beside myself and aim to finish 10 books, but I at LEAST want to read 5 (hopefully the majority will be arcs) I aim to read whichever is closest to the publishing date.

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller: published 9/5/17
Zero Repeat Forever by Gabrielle Prendergast: published 8/29/17
Ekata: Fall of Darkness by Dominique Law: published 8/18/17
When I Cast Your Shadow by Sarah Porter: published 9/12/17
Achilles by Greg Boose: published 9/26/17
Odd & True by Cat Winters: published 9/17/17
Rosemarked by Livia Blackburn: published 11/7/17
Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster: published 10/10/17
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski

Now if by some miracle I manage to finish ALL of these, I just might cry.

Don’t forget to comment below and tell me what are some books you’re planning to read this month?


This is the best reading month that I have had in a LONG time. I have read SO many books, and I have no idea how I managed to read all of these. But oh my gosh, I did it! I enjoyed the majority of the books that I read.

  • Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia: I absolutely loved this book, I read it in practically a day. I do have a review up for this hopefully by the time this post is up? I rated this 5/5 stars.

  • Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody: You need to read this, it is so good. I rated this 5/5 stars. A review will be up soon.

Don’t forget to comment down below and let me know some of your favorite reads this month!


I am sure most people can agree, but I am tired of reading books set in the western world. Like, don’t y’all realize how big the world is? I’d like to start with a disclaimer saying that I have not read ALL of these books, but the reviews for them are incredible and I need to read them as soon as possible. Some of these are books that I have LOVED and some that I have started and loved what I read. All of these books are also by authors of color, and I just rec y’all to check these out!

001. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
Necromancy,  elemental magic, witches…  who could want more? This is a book I started but put down due to being busy and just haven’t had the chance to pick it up, but I absolutely loved what I read!

002. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
Set in feudal Japan with Mulan elements, this book sounds incredible! I have yet to actually read this one and I definitely plan to do so soon! Renee has incredible writing and world building, so I know that I will love this!

003. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Another rec from this amazing author, no surprise here! I binge read this duology in a matter of days because her writing is so addicting! This is a 1001 Arabain Nights retelling and I just…  highly recommend you all read it!

004. The Fifth Season by N.K Jemison
I have seen this rec’d on book twitter and decided to just check it out myself and see what it’s all about! The synopsis on the back instantly grabbed me. This is another book I started but put down due to being busy, but this is such a unique dystopian and the way the book is being told is just… READ THIS!

005. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
And my final rec is this beautiful book. This is one of my all time favorite books. It is sort of hard to explain what this book is exactly about cause I don’t really want to give anything away. Just go and get yourself a copy, you will not regret it.

To all the books I haven’t read…

I have no idea if people like to read these kinds of things but I thought it might be interesting to show you guys in case people were curious. I am getting new shelves within the next few days and I think I am actually going to have a TBR shelf! That way it would help me figure out what books I need to read and if the shelf fills up, that means no more buying books! (RIGHT, hold me up to this) Once I get my shelves I will do a bookshelf tour/how I organize my books type of post.

So without further ado, here are all the PHYSICAL books I need to read!

So yeah, 71 books that I own and have yet to read! Definitely more than I had anticipated but hopefully by the end of this year I hope I can knock some books off this list! (Even though i’ll MOST likely add more)

So if you’ve stayed till the end of the post, thank you so much! How many books do you have on your tbr??

JULY GOALS 2017 (belated but I’m finally back on track)

This post is a lot later than I had anticipated, and I was not going to post it, but since I already have it written, why not!I had a pretty good reading month in June. I read so many good books and finally (hopefully) have established myself on a schedule but I want to actually MAINTAIN that schedule instead of you know… drifting off and forgetting about it? I’ve just been super lazy and sort of unmotivated to really do anything but you know… sometimes you have to push yourself to do things. Also, since I read seven books in June, I think I am going to shoot for eight!

Anyway, I had a pretty good reading month in June. I read so many good books and finally (hopefully) have established myself on a schedule but I want to actually MAINTAIN that schedule instead of you know… drifting off and forgetting about it? I’ve just been super lazy and sort of unmotivated to really do anything but you know… sometimes you have to push yourself to do things. Also, since I read seven books in June, I think I am going to shoot for eight!

Last month I didn’t really read all the books I listed on my TBR which leads me to believe that I am a mood reader and makes me wonder why I even post these things, but I figured I’d start listing a FEW of the books I hope to get to even if I squeeze in some that aren’t even listed. So without further ado, these are the books that I would like to read this month!

Now I Rise by Kiersten White
I’m not going to say what this is about because uh, spoilers but this is the second book in the Conquerers Saga. I got an arc of the first book last year and really loved it, so I’m quite excited to see what happens!

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E Schwab
Once again, not giving a synopsis because this IS a sequel in the Shades of Magic trilogy. I adored the first book and can’t wait to dive into the second!

Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
This is a dystopian novel in which a group of people called the Wolfpack runs the earth and you know how dystopian goes, they’re not the good guys and they took everything away from the main character Eden. Refusing to die by the hands of the Wolfpack she escapes to a place called Sanctuary Island which is the only place in the world untouched by the Wolfpack. Things are great on the island, but soon one of Eden’s new friends go missing and the island just might be deadlier than what Eden left behind. I haven’t read a good dystopian novel in a long time, so I’m hoping this will be good!

Roar by Cora Cormack
This takes place in a land ruled by storms and I don’t know, the synopsis is a little confusing to me but I suppose it is about a girl who does not have the magic she needs to protect her people and if she wants that magic she needs to steal it. it sounds super intriguing so I hope to give it a go!

Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch
I haven’t heard very many people talk about this book besides just a few videos on youtube. But what caught my eye are these covers. This seems like it is a story about kingdoms based on seasons? I don’t know but it sounds pretty darn cool.

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh.
I love Renee’s writing and the worlds she creates. This is SORT of like a Mulan retelling? But not really. I mean it has some Mulan elements in the idea of a woman disguising herself as a man to infiltrate. This is also set in feudal Japan so I can’t wait to see what happens!

Zero Repeat Forever by G.S Prendergast
This is actually an arc that I need to get through ASAP, but I feel like this is another dystopian novel? I am not too sure because I don’t want to give away much but,  from what I have heard this book is a sci-fi Beauty and the Beast retelling which is awesome!

Because You Love to Hate Me by Ameriie
This is the anthology everybody is talking about where a bunch of booktubers collabed with authors and wrote villainy short stories! I adore villains, so I can’t wait to have this!

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
I am not exactly sure what this is about, but what I gathered is that it is about a traveling carnival that caters to the strangest dreams and desires. This book just sounds so cool and I can’t wait for this! (i can’t wait for all of these books, to be honest)

Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell
This is actually an arc so I will hopefully prioritize this one above all the other books. I’m not going to lie, the synopsis sounds super confusing and I don’t know how to translate it into words… I mean, I don’t want to just copy and paste the entire thing so here is the link to the Goodreads page!

Ekata: Fall of Darkness by Dominique Law
Another arc that I will hopefully prioritize but… we’ll see. This takes place in a utopian world where violence is unthinkable but our main character Asher, has had visions of darkness since he can remember. When he turns 18, he finds out a prophecy that is a threat to his world as well as earth. This sounds super cool and unique for a dystopian novel, so I can’t wait to dive in!


And as for some blogging/bookstagram goals:


  • Since most of my photos are monthly challenges, I want to start being more…”original” per say. What I mean is that I want to start posting pictures from inspiration and I have zero clues how to word this so hopefully, Y’all understand!
  •  finally changed up my theme for my bookstagram. I had been thinking about it for such a long time but was hesitant and I just decided to finally do it! The photo above is my new theme, and I actually got the background from! They provide so many backgrounds and the paper is amazing quality. I suggest you check them out!
  • I also want to be more consistent in my posting, either I’ll post every day or every other day!


  • I have so many books I need to review as soon as possible, so I do hope to get all of them done this month! At this rate, I am reading more than I can review which honestly isn’t a bad thing.
  • I keep saying I won’t fall off the wagon of blogging, and yet I do it every time. But since school is starting up next month and I want to keep active on this blog, I need to find a set schedule for myself.
  • I also want to start a few discussion posts!

So that’s it for my belated July goals. This month is super busy for me at work, and I realize all of this IS a little ambitious, but, I will do my best!


I actually did not realize how hard this topic would be because now that I think of it, almost all of the books I have read have romance as the main theme in them which is super annoying because sometimes I just wanna read a good SFF with zero romance and have friendship take the main… course… you get it right? So instead of listing books without romance, I’m going to list some books where romance takes the back burner of the story and isn’t like in your face oh my gosh this is too much.

Okay if you have read this, YES I KNOW, there is a romance but I felt like that wasn’t really important to the story at all. This is about a friendship between two boys and how important it is to be kind to one another. It’s a hard thing to explain but this book made me cry so hard and it was just amazing. You all should read it okay.

This is a science fiction book that comes out in September. I was super lucky to get an arc of this incredible book. This is like a competition but in space to get the chance to go to Eden (I think) which is a planet that was found and already has life on it. There is this substance Nyxia that is supposedly super awesome. Again hard to explain because I don’t want to give much away but there is basically no romance and I can’t wait for you all to read this!

Or just the Monsters of Verity duology to begin with. This is kind of a dystopia where something happened and monsters are being made from acts of violent deeds. There is absolutely no romance in this duology which is super super refreshing because you know usually you find romance in dystopia books but this? Had none and I was living for it.

Another amazing fantasy… ADULT fantasy with no romance. This is set in a fantasy world where there is a spirit in everything you could possibly imagine and nothing is safe. The queen is the one who can control the spirits and protect the citizens. Basically, this is about a girl named Daleina who is in competition to be Queen while trying to find out why in the world the spirits are going haywire. My favorite thing about this book was the friendship between Daleina and her mentor Champion Ven. It was such a perfect friendship/fatherly type thing.

Alright. I tried but I could only think of four books because literally most of the books that I read have some element of romance in them, so yeah, here we have it!

What are some of your favorite non romance books?


THE LOVE INTEREST BY CALE DIETRICHThe Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
Published by Feiwel & Friends on May 16th 2017
Genres: contemporary
Pages: 384
Format: Hardcover

There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.
Caden is a Nice: the boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: the brooding, dark-souled guy who is dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose the Nice or the Bad?
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be—whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.

It has been a long time since a book has made me literally laugh out loud, tear up and felt fuzzies in my heart all at once. I cannot express how much I loved this book like I just… my heart. This is Cale Dietrich’s debut novel and I am just so impressed with this because this book was absolutely incredible! Now before I get onto gushing about how much I loved this book, I did have a few issues with it. Also, beware there are spoilers. I’m not sorry I just need to talk about this book.


Honestly, the only gripe I had with this book is towards the end was how LIC was destroyed. I thought that it was rushed and happened too quickly and easily for my taste.


NOW. Time to gush.

I am not a big fan of contemporary and I was worried that I wouldn’t like this and it would put me off contemporary forever, but I was wrong! I am absolutely impressed that this is Cale’s debut novel. I felt that the writing was strong and the characters were well developed. The plot was on another level and it had me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next and it was just… I really loved this book and I ate it all up in a matter of days. I loved it.

One of the scenes I really loved was Caden’s realization that he is gay and the relationship between him and Dylan was the CUTEST. I rooted for them when they first interacted with each other because they have so much chemistry is unbelievable. Each time these two were on the page interacting with each other my heart was like YAAAS and my brain was like YAAAS. MY PRECIOUS. I even put the book down at times because I couldn’t take how amazing they are together.


“Thanks for the apology, Caden, really. Anyway isn’t it pretty normal for a straight girl to fall for a gay guy? All the sitcoms treat it like a rite of passage, something all girls must go through. You’re pretty and kind and way too good to be true. At least I’ve ticked that box now.”

“I…” I don’t exist to teach her a lesson, and it irks me that she thinks labeling me is okay now. Like but liking guys, I automatically take on that role in her life. That I’m suddenly a supporting character in her story rather than the hero of my own.”

So yeah, not really a super critical review because I absolutely loved this book. I do recommend this book to people who are looking for something cute and… honestly, I recommend this to everyone. I can’t wait to see what else Cale has planned!

Rating Report
Overall: four-half-stars

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:




I can’t believe June is already over! The past two months I was in a really bad reading slump, especially in April I only read I believe… two books? Slowly but surely I am getting out of my reading slump and blogging slump. During the month of June, I read a total of six books. I had such a great reading month, most of my books were five-star reads and they took me completely by surprise. I believe there was only one book that I did not enjoy. But you know, I read a total of seven books. SEVEN. I have not read that many books in a month since last July and that was incredible.

Dark Breaks the Dawn by Sarah B Larson. 1/5 stars.
I have a review on this on my blog, and here is the link but… gosh I disliked this book. I found it to be boring and the worldbuilding was so poor and I didn’t like any of the characters. Also, this book is supposed to be a swan lake retelling? I don’t know, I didn’t care much about the book to look up what retelling it is.

Queen of Blood by Sarah B Larson. 5/5 stars.
I went into this not expecting much at all, and it took me by surprise. This is a book about a competition to find the right Queen who can control spirits that are literally in everything and will kill you. I read this in a matter of two days and it was just incredible.

Wintersong by S. Jae Jones. 5/5 stars.
I don’t know why it took me so long to read this book, but I finally did it! This is sort of a retelling of the Labyrinth and the Goblin Market? I am not TOO sure but I really loved this book. I love books where music is the main focus and the main character has a connection with it. I need the sequel now.

Our Dark Duet by V.E Schwab. 5/5 stars.
This is the sequel to This Savage Song and the last book in that duology. All I am going to say is that this book destroyed me.

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen 5/5 stars. 
This is actually an arc and it comes out September 12 of this year. This is an incredibly diverse sci-fi read with characters from all parts of the world that you can imagine. It is a competition in space and that is all I can say right now until my review is posted closer to the release date! I just really loved this book!

Reign of Serpents by Eleanor Herman
I literally read this in the span of four hours. Granted it was shorter than I had expected, but it was incredible. I mean… things I wanted to happen didn’t happen, but you know what? I really liked what she did and especially all the little historical events she included! Kind of bummed I have to wait an entire year for the next book!

A List of Cages by Robin Roe
I feel like I always say this while reading a new book, but I have seriously… I mean, this was the most incredible book I have ever read.  This was so heart wrenching and emotional, I can’t wait to write a review on it and tell you all my thoughts!

And now for my book haul in which I uh… hauled a lot of books.

                                                                            I have ZERO impulse control.
