Another WWW!!! I just as surprised as y’all, and the main reason as to why I was able to read so much over the last week was because of Reading Rush! And I’m finally done with summer classes!!! So I have a little bit of down time before fall classes start, so there might be another one next week.
I need y’alls help. I’m thinking about posting the following posts, but I don’t know which one y’all would want to see first.
- surviving my first year of college
- how I write my reviews
- qualities I look for in a book boyfriend
- and more songs that reminds me of books!
I’ll eventually get around to posting all of them, but which one sounds more interesting to you? Let me know below!

Syrian Brides by Anna Halabi
“This delightful collection of short stories offers insight into the lives of Syrian women, both the married and the brides-to-be. It reveals the warmth and humor as well as the oppression in the Syrian society. The stories make the reader laugh while addressing serious issues such as domestic violence. Um Hussam can’t find a suitable bride for her son, testing each candidate’s sight, hearing and reading skills, occasionally cobbing a feel. Jamila’s husband Hassan can’t forget his deceased wife, until she makes sure he never mentions her again. Rami can’t help but wonder whether his new bride is a natural beauty or a talented surgeon’s masterpiece. Khadija’s maid stabs her in the back while Rana’s husband Muafak can’t find the right excuse to avoid a fight.”
Night Visions by Elena Gray
“The God of War is calling…
Samantha Cade knows a war is brewing. If her prophetic dreams are any indication, it will come at a cost—innocent lives. Though she tries her best to avoid the coming conflict, fate has other ideas. To survive the future, she must accept the one thing that shattered her.
The return of her lost love is more than Sam can handle. Vanishing from her life three years ago, she’s not ready to open her heart to him again. The only problem is, Ian’s her best asset when the God of War comes looking for a fight.
As Sam races against the clock to avoid losing her life, she faces a devastating choice: lean on the man she once loved and save the world or risk breaking her heart forever.”
I’m almost down with this book, and my review should be up soon!
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
“All sorcerers are evil.
Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a
foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among
the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle
beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink
and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom
from their power.
Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.
As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.”
Y’all I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is certainly worth all of the hype that it has received! Click here to find my 5 Star review with a playlist!
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn
“Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.”
His Beloved by Anna Santos
“It was just a silly reality show…
Until he chose her.
Absurdly rich and gorgeous Daniel Wolfe is used to get what he wants. And he wants Jade. The powerful vampire male picks her from the crowd of screaming females willing to do anything to please him. He’s convinced that she’s the One, His Beloved. But he wasn’t prepared for a feisty girl who loathes vampires and doesn’t want to be his for all Eternity.
Jade will sacrifice anything—even her freedom—to protect her orphaned little brother. But when she’s forced to join a reality show that may keep her away from him, she has to survive hell and temptation to get the money she needs to pay for her brother’s treatment.
In a world that reveres vampires and reality shows rule the entertainment channels, Jade needs to endure Daniel’s seductive games for a week before she can be released from her contract and go back to take care of her brother.
However, not everything is what it seems and despite her secret past and her hate for vampires, Jade may be facing a worse danger than being bitten: falling in love.”
The premise of this book sounded so promising when I first read it, but as I started it there were some things that made me cringe SUPER HARD and some of the character’s early personalities were ewww. So, I ended up rating this book 3.75 Stars, and you can read my review here.
Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer
“In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.
Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital. But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers.
The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated.”
Happy reading until next time,
