Summer Reading Plans!



December commences Summer for all us Southern Hemisphere Loonies and it is also the most reading time I ever get. I could spend days holed up in bed with a book. What better time to catch up with reading than in the holidays right?

So without wasting any time bantering I’ll jump straight on to what I plan on reading these summer holidays.

NOTE: Just click on the image which will direct you to the Goodreads page of the book so you can get more info 🙂

1. Blue Lily, Lily Blue

I think this book has been on my To Be Read since October (uh-oh). About time I finally got to reading the third installment in the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. It involves folklore, magic and classy boys. The first two books are The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves.

Can we just take a moment for the cover. THE COVER! it is absolutely perfect!


2. Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire by Sarah.J.Maas


This summer I vow to myself that I will finish the Throne of Glass series. It’s no surprise the first book didn’t faze me, I slammed it during my review a few months back. I’m not too keen obviously but I’ve heard if you persist the books get better so we’ll see

3. The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfus

A few months ago I started reading the Kingkiller Chronicles and fell in love with the fantastic world. So I am really excited to go back into this magical, mysterious world with our protagonist Kvothe in to the sequel which will lead me to his ultimate destruction. Super excited!


4, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Originally supposed to be read during Halloween but life and other reading plans got in the way so this is the perfect sunny, up beat time to read such a…err extravagant read. But in all seriousness, I do want to finally, finally read this so I can watch the web series based on it.


5. World of Ice and Fire

I’ve mentioned this about fifty times since it released but yeah a history of Westeros in great detail with beautiful illustrations. What more can you look forward to? I hope I’ll have time over this summer to really absorb the tsunami of information that this hunk of a book is going to provide.


6. Percy Jackson Greek Gods

Similar to a the World of Ice and Fire, this is a history of all the Greek Gods told from the sarcastically humorous point of view of Percy Jackson. I’m not too keen on this one right now since I really want to read about Westeros more!

There is roughly my reading plan for the summer! obviously I might end up reading all of these and add more books on or inversely I might end up reading only one which would mean I am a sore loser. But I’m super excited to finally be released form school which means more time to work on this blog. Tell me your holiday reading plans! any good Christmassy books I should check out?





Excitement & Ambition

Ello ello friends!
There are magnificent things occurring this July and I have some rather ambitious ideas.
Half a year has already gone away and all I have done is read books, well, what can you do?
So, In order of importance…
#1. My Birthday “does a little party dance alone”      
Yes my birthday is on the 3rd of July, and I cannot contain my excitement! This sweet 16 is going to be one good one and also I get my license AHHH

#2 Release of Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead



The Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series are my favorites and I have been waiting so long to get my hands on this baby and finally on the 29th of July the wait is over!
If you haven’t already read this series I highly recommend it, trust me it is not cliché and does not include sparkly vampires
#3 Wicked Wildfire Read-a-thon

I am extremely behind on my goal of reading 70 books this year (you can check out my looser progress on goodreads here and maybe challenge yourself!)
I have decided to join this read-a-thon happening between July 14-24 and hope to read many books and catch up

#4 Introducing Thought TuesdayCapture

Ok for a long time I have been trying to come up with a special day/event to add to my blog and I thought hey let’s do some deep thoughtful thing.
Thought Tuesday is basically where I share my thoughts on a certain quote, event, issue or you know we’ll make it up as we go along.


Those are all my exciting plans for July (not that exciting I know but). What are you looking forward to in July? Leave a comment I love reading those 🙂

See yaa next time (when I’ll be a year older)
