Cover Reveal - Heir of fire by Sarah J Maas

Hi guys,
Todays post is very exciting for me because I absolutely loved Throne of glass and Crown of midnight! Recently Sarah J Maas released a cover for Heir of fire, which is the 3rd book in the series. Here is the cover for Heir of fire!


And here is the synopsis from GoodReads:

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien's only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan's Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn.

Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King's Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan's biggest threat - and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

This third novel in the Throne of Glass sequence, from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, is packed with more heart-stopping action, devastating drama and swoonsome romance, and introduces some fierce new heroines to love and hate.

Unfinished series!

Hi guys!
Today I am going to talk about all of the series which I am yet to finish, there are few reasons why I have yet to finish a lot of these series, but the main one honestly is laziness. Anyway, lets get on with it...
1. Matched series by Ally Condie.
I enjoyed the first book, Matched, in this series, but after reading Crossed, which I you have read my previous posts than you would know how much I hated that book, it didn't really encourage me into reading the last book of the series, although I think that I still may give it a go just so that I can say that I finished the series.

2. Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer.

Honestly, I didn't really mind Twilight, but it is not really a priority or me to finish the series.   

3. Sophia and Ava London series by Elle and Blair Fowler.

4. Eve series by Anna Carey.

5. Hunting Lila duology by Sarah Alderson.

WHY HAVE I NOT FINISHED THIS! This is literally one of my favourite books of all time and I own the second and last book in the series, Losing Lila, so I have no clue why I have not read it yet.

6. Dustlands series by Moira Young (Not yet completed).

7. Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis.

8. The mortal instruments series by Cassandra Clare (Not yet completed).

One book left to go!

9. The study series by Maria V Snyder (Not yet completed).

10. The memory chronicles by Lenore Appelhans (Not yet completed).

11. Throne of glass series by Sarah J Maas (Not yet completed).

12. Fruits basket series by Natsuki Takaya.

13. The Caster chronicles by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia.

14. The lunar chronicles by Marissa Meyer (Not yet completed).

I am currently reading Scarlet and loving it!
Thanks for reading, which series do you need to finish?

Book haul #6

Todays post is yet another book haul! I have recently been trying to cut down on the amount of books I buy, but as you will be able to tell from this haul, I am not doing very well!  Anyway, lets get started...

I don't think that this first part of the haul is too bad, considering that I found these books whilst searching through my loft, but I will count them anyway!

I know what you did last Wednesday by Anthony Horowitz.
Carrie's war by Nina Bawden.
Once by Morris Gleitzman.
I'd tell you I love you, but then I'd have to kill you by Ally Carter.
These net books are ones which I bought second hand which means that they were also a lot cheaper, ranging from 50p and 3 for £1.

The time travellers wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
V for Vendetta the novel based on the movie by the Wachowski brothers.
Watchmen the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
Misery by Stephen King.
The host by Stephanie Meyer.
Lastly are the 2 books which I brought in the 2 for £7 deal at Tesco.

The ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman.
Half bad by Sally Green.
Thanks for reading, and hopefully I will not be posting another book haul for a while as I am running out of space! See you in my next post.

April TBR

Hi guys!
So I know that this post is a bit late, but for the last week I have been trying to decide what books I would actually want to read this month, and I only ended up choosing 2 books. This month is going to be even busier than the last as I have a TON of revision to do for exams, which is another reason why I am not planning on reading a lot of books. Anyway, lets get on with it...

City of lost souls by Cassandra Clare.
After finally continuing with the Mortal instruments series last month, I didn't get time to finish the rest of the series, which is why I want to finish it this month, also so that I am ready for the release of City of heavenly fire next month!

Forgive me Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick.
I don't really have a reason as to why I want to read this book, other than the premise of it really interests me, and I have never read anything like it before so I am excited to give it a go!

Thanks for reading and feel free to comment down below which books you are planning to read this month!

March Wrap Up

Hi guys!
Today I am doing my March wrap up. I did not read many books last month because I was very busy what with it being my birthday and the C2C concert and many other things, but I did still manage to read 3 books last month, so lets get started...

Fruits basket V3.
I have really been enjoying the Fruits basket series and was excited to continue, although I do find the story hard to follow sometimes, I still enjoyed it and gave it 4/5 stars.

City of glass by Cassandra Clare.
I finally read it! It has been over 6 months since I began the series and I have been meaning to read this net book since then, so I am so glad that I finally got around to doing it! It was definitely worthy of 5/5 stars and I also think that the series just got better as it went along!

City of fallen angels by Cassandra Clare.
After reading City of glass, I was excited to carry on with the series and I was not disappointed! Even though this one wasn't as good as the other three, I still really enjoyed it and especially liked the new characters that were introduced. Yet another 5/5 stars!
Thanks for reading and I will speak to you in my next post!
