Books I MUST read this summer otherwise ice cream will melt, books will burn and galaxies will explode +#ARCAUGUST

My summer is only ONE MONTH long…

So I have set my standards VERY HIGH?  The UK is rude okay? I am not exaggerating in that title either! Okay, so maybe I am obsessed with hyperboles but it’s only A SLIGHT obsession trust me. Do you see how much I rave about ice cream than exaggerate see? Obsession is ice cream. I am sane.

Now, moving on. I have a LONG LIST of books I have been meaning to read for LITERALLY FOREVER because in case you didn’t know, I like to procrastinate (why do we keep talking about my hobbies today. ice cream. hyperboles. and now procrastination. seriously who is writing this post??? ). And basically, my TBR will kill me very soon! And summer has practically JUST started for me so perfect timing right?!

So basically this is just a smol list of my compact TBR. Have fun reading! I’m also linking with ARC August and squeezing into this post too because it’s fun. ALSO, ALL THE BOOKS link to their Goodreads page and THAT TOOK TIME OKAY? So please appreciate that effort of mine. Also inspiration from this post by May.

THE RAVEN CYCLE

 So, I have heard A LOT of mixed things about this book. A  lot of people literally flail about this series and then others say it was disappointing and full of annoying tropes? So I’m very unsure about reading it but I DEFINITELY WILL because it looks fantastic (the covers are so pretty) and I want to see what the hype is about mostly. I follow the author on twitter and she is officially hilarious, I tell you. I’m aware I’m very late to the somewhat hype but I MUST GET TO THEM!!!

HIS DARK MATERIALS

So, I read this series a million years ago and kind of don’t remember what happened. I just remember that it was an AMAZING series and I AM SUPER excited for The Book Of Dust so I am going to re-read this amazing series! I’m thinking of getting the audiobooks because apparently, it’s amazing!

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials, #2)The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, #3)

THE INHERITANCE CYCLE

Eragon and the rest of these books have been sitting on this SHELF FOREVER, really. And I have heard nothing but amazing things and It’s fantasy so I HOPING IT’s amazing. I’ve just been putting it off because they look super daunting but this summer I WILL DEFINITELY READ THEM. I think.

GRISHA TRILOGY

101941571406195514061957

I have been meaning to read The Grisha Trilogy ever since I read Six Of Crows. I’ve heard it’s not AS good but hey, this LEIGH BARDUGO, the queen, we are talking about. Basically, i need to read this soon.

 

ILLUMINAE FILES

SO BASICALLY this is a sci-fi that EVERYONE has been talking about. I admit Gemina has been making me feel JUST A LITTLE LEFT OUT. But 1) the covers look gorgeous 2) i need to read more sci-fi and 3)THE HYPE. So, i actually was going to buy Illuimunae because it was SO heavy and i love heavy books but saw something about romance and MEH. BUT NOW, apparently, i read a big spoiler without knowing it? I AM SAD, i so wanted to be damaged. SO…I still will read these?

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)

MONSTERS OF VERITY

Okay, I didn’t know this duology HAD A NAME? I just thought it was This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet which REMINDS ME. i need to read this. Apparently ODD is a soul-crusher so I obviously am going to read it??? Also, can we just appreciate these covers for a second? Thanks. I also need to read all other of Schwabs’s books as well because she’s an amazing writer!

I only have TWO for this category!? I like series. What can I say?

The Fault in Our StarsTHE FAULT IN OUR STARS

OKAY. OKAY. OKAY. You can kill me. I know. I HAVEN’T read a single John Green book in my entire life. It’s kind of shocking since I read so many books but apparently, I’ve just never had the opportunity. And since basically everyone is squealing over his new Turtles All The Way Down, I think I’d better start reading this book which has been spoiled for me over and over again.

The Book ThiefTHE BOOK THIEF

So, I’ve watched the movie…and haven’t read the book. I WAS CRYING BUCKETS AT THE MOVIE, I tell you. My soul was crushed and I DEFINITELY want to read the book! I’ve had it on my shelf since I got it for my birthday and WELL…time has passed. 10/10 RECOMMEND the movie ❤ My heart.

SMOL LIST OF OTHER STANDALONES

  • The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.
  • Caraval

Queens of Geek16068905306497953112324931931941

Queens Of Geek – I have heard so much about how ADORKABLE this is and just look, geek appreciation? I WANT.

Fangirl – I think the title just sold this book to me. I’m not even sure what this is about but FANGIRLS.

Goodbye Days – I loved The Serpent King SO SO SO much and it was so sad! Apparently, this is sad too SO OBVIOUSLY Jeff Zentner is an amazing author and i need this book like right now because apparently it’s written superbly!

Saints and Misfits – Muslim Rep. Contemporary. Hype.Own Voices.  Pretty Cover. HELLO, I AM READING.

Eliza and Her Monsters -Excuse me, LITERALLY EVERYONE is talking about this book and it sounds amazing! I also really like the title and the cover so there’s that! And there’s internet appreciation and it just SOUNDS amazing and I’ve heard nothing super bad about it…SO I MUST ENJOY.

#ARC AUGUST.png

So I’m linking up with ARC AUGUST to try and tackle my actually quite small stack of E-ARC’s from Netgalley.

SO, sadly, because I had been procrastinating for so long, One of Us Is Lying EXPIRED and so I can’t read it anymore. I AM SAD. This happened to the Bone Season and Den Of Shadows and EXCUSE ME WHILE I CRY. This is why I hate myself! WHY DID I LEAVE THESE BOOKS FOR SO LONG? Someone tell me to never do this again.

In much better news though, I have SOME AMAZING other ARC’s and I AM SOOOOO EXCITED FOR THEM. HELLO. I have been raving about them ever since I received them and I better read them in time OTHERWISE I might have to kill someone (just kidding)

Daughter of the Burning CityThere's Someone Inside Your HouseCrazy HouseJuniper Lemon’s Happiness Index

Crazy House – James Patterson. Need I say more?

Daughter Of The Burning City – probably the one I AM MOST excited for. It’s all about a circus and illusions and a little murder and mystery and I AM SO LUCKY.

There’s Someone Inside Your House – 2nd most excited for. IT’S MURDER. it’s SCARY. I AM NOT READY.

UPDATE: I finished this book and I was a bit underwhelmed! It was creepy and chilling and…you can read the rest of my review here.

Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index – Seems like a super fun book? AND THAT COVER ❤ All the love!

  2. Ohmigosh SO MANY GOOD BOOKS THAT I’VE READ/WANT TO READ ARE ON THIS LIST. Omg omg omg read Illuminae it’s a masterpiece (Gemina too) and THE GRISHA TRILOGY!!! MY SWEET BABY TRILOGY I LUV THAT ONE SO MUCH. So go read it. Imma have to read SoC soon!!!

    And pretty much all the books in your contemporary section are on my TBR!!! And the Raven Cycle! And every VE Schwab book! Ahhh I’m overwhelmed! XD

    And I feel like John Green is kind of overrated??? I mean I cried BUCKETS when I first read tfios but I don’t know if I’d like it as much if I read it now??? And his other books weren’t that great tbh???

    I hope you enjoy all of these books if/when you get around to them and good luck with ARC August!! ❤️

    Also…. MONSTERS OF VERITY. I need this in my life, and WHOOAA THE GISHA TRILOGY IS just brilliantttttttt, I need the last book like I need air but it’s just not on my shelf yet and I’m going a tad insane (didn’t know if you could tell or not????)

  5. It’s just awesome to see The Fault in Our Stars on your list! I enjoyed the book very-very much, only I felt too emotional about it, so I probably won’t re-read it in the next five years or so 🙂 Hope you like it as much! Also – do not feel bad about not having read John Green until now. The Fault in Our Stars is the only book I’ve read by him so far. Still, I like his writing style and am eager to read some more masterpieces of his.

  6. Please please try to squeeze in Lord of the Rings and When Dimple Met Rishi. I loved both of them and ahem like LotR is my favourite fantasy of ALL TIME? No pressure though, lol. 😂
    I want to re-read His Dark Materials as well. Can we do a buddy read? Also, how do you plan to get the audiobook? Audible doesn’t work here (my address is INVALID, apparently, because people outside US can’t exist?) so I need ideas.
    Try to get the audiobook for Illuminae and Gemina if you can to read along with the books. I promise that’s the best way to read them. I’m so excited for you to join the ranks of fans! 🙂 I was apprehensive about the hype but also it was so very good that I wasn’t bothered by its popularity. I wasn’t too happy with Eragon though. It’s riddled with tropes and I just wish it didn’t blatantly copy Lord of the Rings so much.
    Your TBR is so freaking good! I hope you end up loving them all! ❤

I’m not exactly sure — I was thinking of borrowing the audiobook fro my library via overdrive soo…? I’ nto sure though. I might just stick with my paperbacks at home.
      I cannot wait to read Illuminae and Gemina! Especially with everyone squealing over Obsidio’s cover on Twitter

  8. I love the Raven Cycle for… no reason. I was just fascinated. I never ever read any book series written in that style. The character are quite flawed and I really love them for that.
    Paolini’s book are a piace of my childhood. I loved the world building and the author’s attention to details but I had a lot of difficulties with the main protagonist 😣
    The Book Thief is one of my favorite book ever. I cried so many tears while reading it. Its’ the book that I purchase as a present to everyone who still has to read it 😂
    About Illuminae series I’m like you. Which is emabarassing since I go around saying that Kristoff is myy favorite author. But I blame Nevernight for this.

    The Raven Cycle is AMAZING and I ADORE IT AND IT’S WRITING STYLE. I admit, there are a few cliche moments, but overall it’s really unique and fascinating. HIS DARK MATERIALS IS ALSO AWESOME Will and Lyra are just so adorable???? Philip Pullman is a GENIUS. I really have to read the Inheritance Cycle; Eragon has been lying on my mom’s bookshelf for ages but I didn’t bother reading it. I liked the Grisha Trilogy, but not *that* much. I REALLY REALLY WANT TO READ OUR DARK DUET. I FINISHED THIS SAVAGE SONG AND IT WAS SO GOOD??? And I need to read Illuminae too…
    JOHN GREEN iwhieukjsnxwuhciewufriu I thought he was really overrated at first, and kind of hated his books without reading them – but then I read the Fault in Our Stars and OH MY GODS. I READ ALL HIS BOOKS. I am very very very excited for Turtles All the Way Down 😀 FANGIRL WAS AMAZING I LOVE RAINBOW ROWELL SO MUCH. The spin-off, Carry On, is also REALLY GOOD. And I NEED TO READ QUEENS OF GEEK. Eliza and Her Monsters has been on my TBR for a while now, too.

      OH yes, Fangirl sounds awesome. I MEAN THAT TITLE IS SO RELATABLE.

      OUR TBR;s are oh so very similar! Hope you get round to reading Eragon and Illuminae. Oh and Queens Of Geek and Eliza. I’ve heard Grisha isn’t as good as Soc…so i don’t know?

    UMMM A LOT OF BOOKS THAT YOU WANT TO READ ARE BOOKS I WANT TO READ TOO: Grisha, ODD, Flame in the Mist, TMI, Caraval, TBT, all four contemporaries besides Eliza (which was amazing), Daughter of the Burning City, and There’s Someone Inside Your House. I’ve actually read a lot of the books you mentioned! #surprised

    The Raven Cycle… I mean it’s pretty much okayishly good, but the characters are what make it great. Does that make sense? Everything else besides the characters is meh. In my opinion. Um… the covers for His Dark Materials… yikes. Oh, TFIOS… I actually didn’t like that one as much??? I wasn’t heartbroken and… it was just weird. I need to read Paper Towns though. In picking up Caraval and TBT from the library today — Caraval was on my summer TBR so yay! Gentleman’s Guide missed that spark for me, but it was still great. Oh, I need to read Dimple and Daniel Tate as well. TATBILB is really cute and fluffy and I NEED the last book. Letters to the Lost was also very good!

    Similar issue with The Grisha Trilogy of I read the first 2 but never the last one. I remember finding the series okay but I loved Six of Crows so I should go back and finish that!

    I’d be interested to know your thoughts about The Raven Boys series and the Illuminae series. LOVED the first one, the second one isn’t my favorite genre BUT it was so mind-blowingly crazy?!
    I’m kind of a big fan of John Green (incaseyoudidntnoticemyblogsnameandeverything), but I feel like the bookish community on here is a bit divided about his books. I hope you’ll love them 🙂
