Top Ten… Thursday?????

 
Okay guys, *look of horror* I know it’s Thursday and I’m doing Top Ten Tuesday! The world is off-balance! I’m gonna DIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, maybe not die, just reenact FREAKY FRIDAY BY TURNING INTO NIKKI AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *hyperventilates* Okay, I’m creeping myself out. No, don’t throw eggs at me! That would be unthinkable! (I’m not up to speed with the latest shadow hunter pjs!) Kidding! Maybe you can all just boo me? I’m fairly sure you don’t do that to Nikki, you’re all too busy egging her…. Alright. *composes self* Anyway, since it’s Thursday, I’m just going to throw my WAYRW in here as well. It’ll be like a Nikki post! Oh gosh, the shame! Okay, to prove I’m not turning into Nikki, I’m going to tell you that I had a reason for missing my TTT post. Yup, my iPod was dead all day Tuesday and my tab charger has been lost for a week, so…. Yeah. I was really busy yesterday too…. Now, down to business. Groan all you want, but I refuse to turn into Nikki! The world simply cannot handle two of her.

In case you’ve been living in a hole for your entire blogging experience, Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is…

Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies)

Woohoo!!! This is so EASY! I literally just went to the library yesterday. And the day before that. No, I do not joke with you here! But since I started this post yesterday (yes, I am that much more guilty), I’m not including the group from yesterday. 😀 Since I’m feeling kind (very) a.k.a. Guilty  (very) with a capital G, the covers will be linked to their Goodreads pages this week. I’ve always wanted to link pictures….

The first group are from my library visit Tuesday.


The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares – I actually just finished this one! I’ve never read this series, so I picked up the first one a week or so ago and liked it. Of course, I had to get more of the series ASAP. 🙂

Beyond the Kingdoms by Chris Colfer –

Okay, so this is a kids book. But I still read a lot of juvenile fiction when I started this series. However, then I started it for the concept; now I’m reading it because, hello! Chris Colfer aka Kurt from Glee? Yup! Still obsessed with Glee. (Just finished this one a few minutes ago)

The Book Without Words by Avi –

Another children’s book. Let me tell you about my library program. Yes, I promise this is relevant. Our library this year is doing one program for YA and Adult. They gave out a list of authors to read from. When you finish a book by an author on the list, you can fill out a slip and stick it in a box, which they draw from every week or something. Well, that was all good until I got home and started looking up these authors. Guess what??? Half the authors only ever wrote picture books. A quarter wrote children’s. The other quarter wrote YA and children’s. I mean, seriously people? There were seriously like five adults books for my my mom to choose from. Avi was on the list, and I’ve only read one book by him, so I gave it a shot. Hence this book.

The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett –

The library program. ‘Nuff said.

Dragon’s Blood by Jane Yolen –

Same.

Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares –

At a split-second decision, I got both books two and three. Doesn’t hurt, right?

The last four are from my library excursion a week or so ago.

  Oh my gosh. I’m in shock, I swear! (I don’t swear) I went to look up the next book, and Goodreads won’t search! Sorry, no more links, just the PURTY PICTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Inner 3-year-old, I got tired of being mature. Don’t we all?)

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo –

I’d been hearing about this book for AGES, so I went and got myself a copy. I actually just recently finished it. If you haven’t read it, DO! It was really good.

Mosquitoland by David Arnold –

I actually have no idea what this is about. Or why I got it. My best guess- Nikki?

Frosting and Friendship by Lisa Schroeder –

Ka-Pow! Dat’s rite, kids boock. Uck, that spelling is killing me already. Library program. Yes? Yes.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins –

Never read the series, and everyone always says I should! I’m trying, I really am. But it’s just… so… hard… to open….

For the amount of time I spent on it, this post is ironically short…. Oh well. I’m so sorry I’ve been AWOL (Not exactly sure what that means, so if I said something bad, it wasn’t intentional. Isn’t it, like, disappearing from a video game or something???), and Nikki’s writing an apology post too. And now she’ll chew me out for ratting her out. Oh, the beautiful circle of life. ON TO THE WAYRW!!!

In case you haven’t heard of it, What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. Simply answer these three easy questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your ebook and share one complete sentence.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins –

 

Oh yeah! Yes, you heard right. I’m finally reading this series!!!!!!!

2. “I cannot afford to get upset, to leave this room with puffy eyes and a red nose.” Page 33 would have been a MUCH better teaser. By far.

3. No. Absolutely not. I would be eligible for the reaping and…. *shudder* Without a doubt, never.

Well, I’m off to see a play, so I really must be going. But I did promise to have two TTT pics in this post last week!

 

Gotta run, but feel free to comment about my reading choices down below or just tell me how awesome I am! (Just kidding. Somewhat.) Have a great day, and happy reading to you all! 🙂 👋🏻

  1. God, in the beginning, I seriously thought that was Nikki posting! 😛 I mean, Amy with a TTT on Thursday? That’s definitely something!
    And I am SOOOO happy that you’re finally giving The Hunger Games a read! Like, I could dance around in my room right now. Maybe. Just maybe.

                    • I’ve heard of The Sea of Tranquility, what’s it about? I’m on bk 4 for TMI, but Nikki told me I’m supposed to read the other series now? Vuuuutttt??????? Do you know anything about this?????
                      I’m reading Mosquitoland; I just started but I really love the style!!!

                    • Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay.
                      Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.
                      Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to.

                      That’s the blurb 😉
                      It’s definitely not as fluffy as it sounds, though. I mean, yeah, it builds a lot on romance, from what I’ve read till now, but I really wouldn’t call it ‘fluff’.
                      And yes, if you haven’t read The Infernal Devices yet, I think it’d be better if you read it before you started City of of Lost Souls. Or AT LEAST before you started City of Heavenly Fire. That’s what I’d been advised and what I did. I think it would’ve been even better if I’d read it before I’d started the fourth book (because I could find connections there) but oh well.
                      What’s Mosquitoland about?

                    • The Sea of Tranquility sounds good!!!
                      Okay, so just to be clear, I should read The Infernal Devices before City of Lost Souls, not City of Fallen Angels? Or should I read it now?
                      Here’s the blurb for Mosquitoland:
                      “I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.”
                      After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the “wastelands” of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.
                      So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.
                      Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, “Mosquitoland” is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
                      It’s a really interesting voice, that is totally true. Makes you think differently. But I definitely like it so far! I’m trying to read it before tomorrow, it’ll be due at the library…. 😁 Tick tock! 😉 Happy reading!

                    • Hmmm… interesting blurb! I’m actually reading When It Rains now, I finished the Sea of Tranquility on Saturday morning. (It was great!! ❤ )
                      Well, I was advised to read TID before I read City of Heavenly Fire, i.e., just after I finished City of Lost Souls. And I followed that advice. But while reading City of Fallen Angels, I couldn't help but think that it would've been better if I'd read TID right after City of Glass. That way I would've enjoyed the little connections sprinkled here and there, better. But that's just my opinion! 🙂 As long as you're reading it before CoHF, I don't think there's any major harm being done 🙂
