February 28th: Favorite Urban Fantasy Books *Book Babble Crossover Topic*
— Urban Fantasy tends to feature a heavy romance element, so I figured it fit in this month.

The technical urban fantasy definition is: a subgenre of fantasy in which the narrative has an urban setting. Works of urban fantasy are set primarily in the real world and contain aspects of fantasy, such as the discovery of earthbound mythological creatures, coexistence or conflict between humans and paranormal beings, and other changes to city life. A contemporary setting is not strictly necessary for a work of urban fantasy: works of the genre may also take place in futuristic and historical settings, real or imagined.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-read Forever

Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
As always this list is in no particular order.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


February 27: Books I Could Re-read Forever


Rather than books I could re-read forever, I’m going to go with ten books I want to re-read soon.

Top Five Wednesday: Favorite Minor Characters

Top Five Wednesday is a book meme that Lainey started, and is now hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes.

May 24th: Favorite Minor Characters
–Minor characters are less than a sidekick or a side character (but not in our hearts!) Everyone will have a different definition of what makes a minor vs a side character but just as an example, I’d consider Ron and Hermione side characters, while Lavender Brown, Oliver Wood, and Dean Thomas are minor characters. Results may vary so don’t get tooooo caught up in it ūüôā


 

1 –¬†Luna Lovegood¬†from¬†Harry Potter¬†

Luna is an undisputedly amazing character. Period. End of story. Its a shame we didn’t get more of her.

2 – Magnus Bane from Mortal Instruments

I just love Magnus okay? Does he even count as a minor character? He’s minor in The Infernal Devices – and he’s great there too so he counts. I love my warlock child. And his warlock child.

3 – Grover from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Grover is a good best friend to Percy throughout the series. I will forever be mad that we didn’t see him and Percy interacting in Heroes of Olympus.

4 – Seth Clearwater from The Twilight Saga

I have had a weird love of Seth Clearwater since I read Twilight for the first time when I was nine. We literally see him once, and hear of him twice, so I have no idea what this stems from, it it is a thing none-the-less.

5 –¬†Rue¬†from¬†The Hunger Games

Everyone loves Rue. We only had her for a few chapters before what is literally one of the most depressing scenes ever, but she is a beloved character.

May 17th: Summer Reads
–The weather is heating up (for half of the world), so what books remind you of summer and are your quintessential summer reads?


I’m going with 5 summer-y arcs on my TBR – because I need to get to these this summer…

Also, if I straight up g with summer-y contemporaries, my list will be identical to every other “Unexpected Everything”, Kasie West, and “Since You’ve Been Gone” filled list that are the first summer-y books that come to mind, arguably for many people.

1 –¬†Hook’s Tale –¬†Being the Account of an Unjustly Villainized Pirate Written by Himself

by John Leonard Pielmeier

I LOVE retellings. Peter Pan retellings being among my favorites. I also love redeeming villain stories (its a thing, go with it). This combines those two things – apparently its inspired by Wicked…which I have never seen/read/heard in full. But it seems cool none-the-less and I’m excited to read this.

2 –¬†Song of the Current

by Sarah Tolcser

This is another book featuring ships and the seas. I’ve been on a pirate kick lately, I don’t know. I don’t think this book is directly about pirates, but its about river gods and kickass, ship sailing females (which is close enough to pirates) and seems intriguing so I’m excited.

3 –¬†The Possible

by Tara Altebrando

Superpowers are just a summer-y thing to me. Probably because all the superhero movies come out in the summer (I’m dying for GotG2 and Spider-man!). I don’t know much about this, it it seems really interesting. I was mostly just hooked by the concept of X-men-like powers.

4 –¬†Sovereign –¬†Nemesis – Book Two

by April Daniels

I Loved the first book (NetGalley Review ‚Äď Nemesis #1: Dreadnought) which come out earlier this year. I wasn’t expecting this one to come out so soon, but it comes out this summer and I got approved for an arc on netgalley. I read and loved the first one over winter break (but I was in central america so it was summer!) and I really want to read this, so here it is.

5 –¬†The Comic Book Story of Video Games –¬†The Incredible History of the Electronic Gaming Revolution

by Jonathan Hennessey, Jack Mcgowan

Summer is the only time I actually have the time to play video games, and comics in general just seem a summer-y thing. So, there it goes on the summer reads list.


Some Honorable Mentions:

I have two mandatory summer reading books this year – as I’m taking AP English Literature next year school. I have to read Pride & Prejudice and Thousand Splendid Suns.

Waiting on Wednesday #5 – Tash Hearts Tolstoy

new2bwow

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases you’re dying for!


29414576

After a shout-out from one of the Internet‚Äôs superstar vloggers, Natasha ‚ÄúTash‚ÄĚ Zelenka finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust into the limelight: She‚Äôs gone viral.

Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina‚ÄĒwritten by Tash‚Äôs literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich ‚ÄúLeo‚ÄĚ Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the forty thousand new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr GIFs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.

And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash‚Äôs cyber-flirtation with Thom Causer, a fellow award nominee, suddenly has the potential to become something IRL‚ÄĒif she can figure out how to tell said crush that she‚Äôs romantic asexual.

Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?

Hardcover, 367 pages
Expected publication: June 6th 2017 by Simon & Schuster

Super dying for this one!

I got approved for an e-arc and I’m loving it so far!

Ace representation and geek/nerd/bookworm MC – thats all I have to say!
