Waiting on Wednesday – 11-15-2017

Hello everyone!

Today is Wednesday, which means it is time for the 3 WWW’s: What I am currently reading, What I recently finished, and What I plan on reading next.


What book(s) am I currently reading?

Wintersong

I read Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones earlier this year, so I am currently re-reading this beautiful book to prepare for Shadowsong, which I was lucky enough to grab an ARC of at YallFest. If you have not read Wintersong yet, I highly advise to place this book on you TBR list!

NeverSea

I am also reading NeverSea by Jenetta Penner and David R. Bernstein. This book comes out at the end of November, and is a retelling of The Little Mermaid & Peter Pan, but with a sci-fi twist. This book is so much fun; so if you are a fan of The Lunar Chronicles, I’d recommend to check out this book!


What book(s) did I recently finish reading?

Darkest Stars

Oh, I very much enjoyed this book. That ending was spectacular; the last few chapters were the best chapters of the book and I cannot wait to read the second book! My review is coming soon, so check that out when it’s released!


What book(s) do I plan on reading next?

I plan on reading these two books next, since I usually do not like to read one book at a time.

Everless

What book(s) are you currently reading? Happy reading!

Unboxing: Surprise Book Mail from Entangled Teen

I came home yesterday afternoon after a long day of work and noticed a package sitting on the front porch of my house. It was addressed to me from Entangled Teen. I was not expecting anything from this amazing publishing company, so this surprise package definitely peaked my interest. And I absolutely fell in love with everything inside. Everything inside this mystery box is to celebrate the upcoming release of Haven by Mary Lindsey, which hits bookstores November 7. Haven has been on my upcoming TBR list for months, so I was beyond thrilled to receive this Haven package from Entangled Teen!

The first item inside the box was a hardcover edition of Haven by Mary Lindsey. Haven is the first book in a new Young Adult Paranormal series. Check out the summary below:

Haven

“We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s used to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart. 

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for. 

Doesn’t this book sound amazing?! I definitely think so! Paranormal is one of my top genres for Young Adult, and if Paranormal is one of yours, too, you are not going to want to miss out on this book!

The second item in the box was a Haven themed tote bag. I am a huge lover of tote bags, and this beautiful tote bag will be joining my ever-growing collection of bookish-themed bags.

Another surprise item was a Haven themed coffee mug. I love coffee and tea so this mug will definitely not go to waste. The coffee mug is gorgeous and a perfect addition to my collection! I especially love the quote!

Also inside the box was some awesome wolf themed items! A stunningly beautiful wolf charm bookmark, one of my absolutely favorite items from this surprise box. Wolves are one of my favorite animals, and the charm is a perfect fit for me (and my Siberian Husky) so this charm will most likely be going with me wherever I go. Also with the wolf charm came two stickers: a wolf and Haven sticker. Anyone who knows me knows that stickers are one of my top bookish items (along with bookmarks, postcards, and maps) to collect. A small bag of lavender was also included in this box, which has such an amazing smell!

The last items in the box were an “I’m a Book Nerd” poster, an Entangled Teen portable charger outlet (thank you so much for this!)  and two Godiva chocolate (SUCH GOOD CHOCOLATE!!). I love the poster because it is completely true! The fact that books take up almost two/thirds of my room says enough. As I like to think, my life is not complete unless I am surrounded by books.

Thank you, Entangled Teen for such an awesome surprise box! I am beyond excited to start reading Haven by Mary Lindsey and I cannot wait to put that Haven coffee mug to use!

Haven by Mary Lindsey comes out on November 7, 2017. And if you pre-order, there is an AMAZING pre-order campaign! Check out the campaign here.
