5 Books I Want To Read In 5 Months

I do not stick to the TBRs (to be read list) that I make so I thought that I would give myself five months to read five books.
All of the summaries are short, sweet, and to the point. If you want to know more about the books I will leave links down below to Goodreads.

1. Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kanheman


This book is about how the brain works.

2. Heartless by Marissa Meyer



Heartless is a Queen of Hearts orgin story from Alice in Wonderland.

3. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss



This is about a wizards life and its high fantasy. I don't think that I read any high fantasy books so hopefully I enjoy this. I have heard good things.

4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey



This book is about an alien invasion.

5. The Bees by Laline Paull 



I am not sure what this is about. I just know that the main character is a bee which sounds interesting.

Well those are the five books that I want to read over the next five months.



Let me know in the comments if you have any reading goals for the next five months. Do you make TBRs or are you a mood reader? 

Thank you for reading!
I hope you have a good day.

Saga Series Review (Spoiler Free)


Are you in the mood to read a wonderfully illustrated love story about two people whose homes are at war with each other and they are trying to escape from it all to save themselves and their baby? If you said yes Saga is the series for you!

I really enjoyed this series. I love that as the reader you experience every point of view possible with this series. The reader gets the point of view from the parents, the point of view from the bounty hunters, the point of view from the robots, and it is narrated by their daughter. I don’t think that I have read a series with as many different points of view as this one. Brian K. Vaughan writes the story with such fluidity that it doesn’t seem like an abrupt change in narration when it switches from the many points of view.

I want to encourage those who have not started this series to do so. Just try it. Read the first Volume and I guarantee you will be hooked. You will want more.

I requested the first volume from the library and read it in one sitting. I was so upset when I finished it because I had to request the other volumes and wait for them to come in before I got to find out what happens next.



I am highly anticipating the seventh volume!


The art in these graphic novels is amazing!




I do want to warn you that this series is for mature audiences. If you are not prepared for mature content (sex scenes) do not pick up this series.


If you have read the series let me know what you think in the comments.

Thank you for reading.
I hope you have a great day!

Life Wrap Up: Feb. 2017

Today I wanted to share some things that I have been loving in February. Most of the things that I will be mentioning are songs.

Music
1. Panic! At the Disco: The only thing that I remember hearing from Panic! was the song I Write Sins Not Tragedies but this month I think that I have listened to almost everyone of their songs.
I actually re-found Panic! At The Disco because my Psychology teacher wanted us to watch MTV music videos for an assignment and one of the music videos that I watched was Death Of A Bachelor.
I feel like I am going to make myself hate the songs after a while because I have had them playing on repeat for all of February.
I did that with Hello by Adele. I listened to it so much that now the idea of listening to it makes me want to change the song/radio. Do you guys do this too?

2. Ed Sheeran: I have always loved Ed Sheeran's music. I had his last album, X, on repeat for months. I heard the song Shape Of You and I really like it but I think the one that I prefer more is Castle On The Hill. I heard Castle On The Hill when I was doing that Psych assignment that I mentioned earlier.

Individual songs that I love:
1. Rockabye by Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul and Anne-Marie
2. Water Under The Bridge- Adele


Food
Chips and salsa or hummus on bread with salsa have been my go to thing to eat this month. I recently tried the peach mango salsa by the brand Market Side and it is amazing. At fist I did not think that peach, mango, and salsa all together would be good but I am glad that I went against my initial thoughts and bought the salsa. If you guys are interested in getting some you can buy it at Walmart.

Books
I did not read anything that blew me away but I did read quite a few books this month. All together I read seven books. I will have my wrap up posted soon. The wrap up will be posted to my YouTube Channel since there are so many books this month.

Sorry that this wasn't very long, music has just taken over my life this month so I don't have many things to share. I will try to make next months life wrap up more interesting.

(I do want to let you guys know that I do have a few more blog posts coming soon. I have them all written out on paper but I need to type them up.)

Thank you for reading.
I hope you have a great day!
