Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Recent Additions To My Bookshelf

I have added quite a few books to my temporary/permanent bookshelf lately, temporary being Kindle Unlimited Shelf. Here are my Top Ten Books that have been added to my bookshelf and that I plan to read or have read recently!

1 Nissa: A Contemporary Fairy Tale

Nissa: A Contemporary Fairy Tale

I have finished this book already, and I absolutely loved it. My full review is coming soon, I was just lucky enough to get it when I saw that it was free from someone on Instagram I think. Great book!

2: Pathways (Kingdom Chronicles Book 1)

Pathways (The Kingdom Chronicles Book 1) by [Peters, Camille]

I don’t know anything about this book besides the fact that it is a Princess and the Pea retelling and it was free on Kindle Unlimited. I can’t wait to check it out!

3: Beauty and the Beast (Timeless Fairy Tales Book 1)

Beauty and the Beast (Timeless Fairy Tales Book 1) by [Shea, K. M.]

Another book that I don’t know much about besides the fact that it is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and that it is free on Kindle Unlimited. Can’t wait to get started!

4: A Dance of Silver and Shadow: A Retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses (Beyond The Four Kingdoms Book 1)

A Dance of Silver and Shadow: A Retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses (Beyond the Four Kingdoms Book 1) by [Cellier, Melanie]

And yet another classic fairy tale retelling on Kindle Unlimited! I wanted to give all these new authors a chance, and I cannot wait to dig into these stories. I can already tell that they are going to be good.

5: Hunted: Alba’s Story (Destined #5)

Hunted: Alba's Story (Destined Book 5) by [Lee, Kaylin]

I’ve already finished and loved this book, so I can’t wait to write my review for you all. This was the last book currently published in the Destined serries, so I am looking forward to the sixth book which is probably coming out fairly soon.

6: Odriel’s Heirs

Odriel's Heirs (Odriel's Heirs, #1)

An author recently emailed this book to me, so I am interested in checking out this YA fantasy novel!

7: Death Warden

Death Warden

Another YA fantasy novel sent to me by an author that I absolutely NEED to get around to reading. It sounds amazing!

8: The Fight for Magicallus

The Fight for Magicallus

I don’t read children’s/middle grade fantasy books much, but this was another book sent to me by an author that I have been enjoying so far. Can’t wait to write my full review of it.

9: Awakening the Vampire

Awakening the Vampire

I received this book a while back and never got the chance to actually read it, so I am looking forward to finally finishing this book in the Shadow-Walkers series. Hopefully I will have thi sreview finished for you all before the end of next month.

10: Once Tales, Myths, and Legends of Faerie

Once... Tales, Myths  and Legends of Faerie

Another book sent to me by an author. I’m determined to stay on top of these rquests in 2020, so I can’t wait to get to this book either.

I hope you all enjoiyed my list, and thanks for reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I actually don’t have ten books for this list, as I typically don’t usually anticipate books coming out. I always get surprised when new books come out, and I typically don’t find myself waiting for the next book of a big series! I also always have books to read, so I don’t really find myself waiting around for a specific book to come out. But I want to try to do all the TTTs for 2020, so here are my top 5 books that I am looking forward to reading this year!

1) House of Earth and Blood

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

I love Sarah J. Maas’ Court of Thorns and Roses series, and I don’t know when the next book in that spinoff series is coming out. While I was in the process of looking for the next ACOTAR book, I found out that Maas is going to be coming out with an entirely new series about Angels and Demons in March of this year! I personally haven’t finished the Throne of Glass series, so I hope to be able to finish those books and then pick this one up when it comes out. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!

2) The Chosen #2

The Chosen #2 (Contender, #2)

I really do enjoy Taran Matharu’s books, and I was lucky enough to be on a blog tour for the first book of this series, The Chosen. I didn’t absolutely love The Chosen, but I definitely liked it a lot and I think that this series has a lot of potential. I can’t wait to see what book 3 has in store for Cade. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!

3) Masters’ Mistress

Masters' Mistress (The Angel Eyes #1)

I read the prequel to the Angel Eyes series many months ago, and I absolutely loved it. These books do not romanticize slavery in any way, the men of this world are beaten and broken because they lost the war and have been abused by the women of the world for so long. Jake’s Redemption was an amazing read, I wasn’t expecting the prequel to be so fleshed out. I actually forgot that I was only reading a prequel to the main series after a while. Now, I am excited to see what will happen to rebellious Bret and kind Angel in the next book of this unique series. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!

4) The Damned

The Damned (The Beautiful, #2)

I loved The Wrath and the Dawn, but I haven’t finished that series yet. I loved Flame In The Mist, but I haven’t finished that series either even though I got Smoke In The Sun signed by Renée Ahdieh! I haven’t even STARTED The Beautiful yet, but I know that I am going to love it. Therefore, I know that I am already excited for The Damned to come out next year. Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!

5) The Gilded Ones

The Gilded Ones (Deathless, #1)

This book I had no idea about until I started creating this list, but I am super excited for it. This book is about a 16 y/o girl named Deka who lives in fear of her blood ceremony. If she has red blood, she will become a member of her village. But on the day of her ceremony, her blood runs gold, and she will face the consequences of her impurity. Then she is offered a place in an army of girls who also have the “impure” blood, and so she has to leave the village she has always loved. I am actually going to try to get an advance copy of this book if it pops up on Netgalley, so wish me luck! Read the synopsis by clicking the book cover!

Thanks for reading my Top 5 picks for next year, which books are you anticipating?

Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Releases!

Hi Everyone!

Top Ten Tuesdays were a meme created by the Broke and the Bookish in 2010. They have new themes for Top Tens every week, and this week’s theme is “Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In 2018”. I plan to start doing these, but on January 16 That Artsy Reader Girl will be hosting the Top Ten Tuesdays! So let’s get started!

A Court of Frost and Starlight

A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.5)

I love the ACOTAR series. Even though this is only a short story or novella I’m not sure, I am still super excited for it! I am also taking this time while I wait for the next actual installment to read the Throne of Glass series.

Smoke in the Sun

Smoke in the Sun (Flame in the Mist, #2)

I love Flame in the Mist, and if you remember how beautiful that cover was, it isn’t shocking to think that this cover will also be amazing once it is revealed. I forgot that there was going to be another installment in this series, but now that I know, I can’t WAIT until it comes out!

War Storm

War Storm (Red Queen, #4)

Alright, so the Red Queen series has been quite the ride. The last book, King’s Cage, was pretty good. However, I was glad that the series didn’t end there. THIS is the end of the Red Queen series, and I will be on the edge of my seat as I wait and hope that the series ends in a way that I like!

The Burning Maze

The Burning Maze (The Trials of Apollo, #3)

I’ve never reviewed a Trials of Apollo book before because I have never ever finished the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series! I am currently reading the Titan’s Curse, but I plan to finally be done with both the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus by May to be in time for this book. I also plan to finish the Magnus Chase trilogy in that time. A lot of reading, but I know that it will be worth it.

The Fates Divide

The Fates Divide (Carve the Mark #2)

Carve the Mark was a book that had a lot of controversies, but I personally liked it. I cannot wait for the next book in this series, and before it comes out I plan to reread the Divergent trilogy.

Beneath the Haunting Sea

Beneath the Haunting Sea

I found this book @Paws And Paperbacks and I instantly fell in love with the cover. Honestly, the cover was just so beautiful that I could not do anything but put it on here.

Thunder Head

Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe, #2)

I loved Scythe, and I am so happy that the sequel will be coming out so quickly. Only 2 more weeks!

The Defiant

The Defiant (The Valiant, #2)

I enjoyed the Valiant a lot, and so I am super excited for this to be coming out at the end of January!

Defy The Worlds

Defy the Worlds (Constellation, #2)

I sped through Defy the Stars in less than 3 hours. Needless to say, I am very excited for the next installment in this series!



I found this book @Moms Book Collection , and I fell in love with both the cover and the storyline. It’s going to be a dark version of the Peter Pan story, with a girl who refuses to acknowledge the death of her parents and only remembers the fantasy stories of Neverland that they read to her. I cannot wait to read it!

That’s all for now, post in the comments which books you are looking forward to!
