ACCUMULATED REVIEW BOOKS.

Obviously, I am cramming. This is what happens when you procrastrinate and let blogging slumps get the best of you. I got a bunch of books for review last year which I dont think I blogged about. I usually take photos of new books I acquired and if I have to make a list for photoshoot, I just check the photo date stamp. However, relying on my cameral roll isn't working at the moment and my memory is such an epic fail it serves no purpose, so it made me lazier. In times like this, my Bullet Journal becomes my one true BFF because I get to flip through my lists of books I read, bought etc easily. I learned my lesson the hard way thus I went back to the best way I would be able to remember: by writing.

The books below are all from last year. Some I think I have blogged about, some I haven't yet. I've read some and DNF-ed 3 big titles. Oops.


GIFTED:
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff
Blood of Wonderland (Queen of Hearts Saga #2) by Colleen Oakes
Serenade by Claire Du

FOR REVIEW:
A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by Sabaa Tahir
The Dark Army (The Starblade Chronicles #2) by Joseph Delaney
Poison's Kiss (Poison's Kiss #1) by Breeana Shields I've read this and loveeeed it!
Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2) by Alwyn Hamilton
Because of the Sun by Jenny Torres Sanchez
My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill
Saving Red by Sonya Sones
Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin
The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet by Natasha Farrant
What About Today by Dawn Lanuza A 4-star read!


I am absolutely thrilled to dive into these books! Can I just quit work so I can read all day? (Took me three hours to draft this on my phone 😂)

Thank you to the following: Louisse, JB, Claire, Penguin Random House International, HarperCollins International, Scholastic PH and Anvil Publishing!

  2. I loved Rebel of the Sands and I can't wait to read Traitor to the Throne. I read Heartless and I've also been seeing a lot of good things about Poison's Kiss. That snake though...Have fun reading your books!

    1. I DNF-ed:

      Heartless and Nevernight because I wanted to read them in one sitting so I will def pick them up soon!
      Torch - because I just couldn't connect to it at all and the pacing is dragging

      Oops :)

      Thank you, Lexxie for dropping by!

  4. I get lazy too, especially when I'm overwhelmed by looking at my Blog To-Do list. Then I just ignore it and do something totally different :P

    Some of the books you listed are on my TBR list, but before reading Traitor to the Throne I should probably first read Rebel of the Sands.. ;)

    You got a lot of books to review :0 Good luck with those you haven't finished yet :))
