December’s TBR

Last month of the year! This is the time to finish everyone’s goodreads challenge (although i already finished it!) and also, to snuggle with a good book in bed! The most wonderful time of the year is here ! Yay for christmas!!! And so this month i´ll be reading some books about christmas 🙂

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares

I’ve left some clues for you. If you want them, turn the page. If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.
At the urge of her lucky-in-love brother, sixteen-year-old Lily has left a red notebook full of dares on her favourite bookshop shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept. Curious, snarky Dash isn’t one to back down from a challenge – and the Book of Dares is the perfect distraction he’s been looking for.

As they send each other on a scavenger hunt across Manhattan, they’re falling for each other on paper. But finding out if their real selves share their on-page chemistry could be their biggest dare yet…. 

Let it Snow

An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos. One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train and sets off a chain of events that will change quite a few lives. Over the next three days one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista.

A trio of today’s bestselling authors – John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle- brings all the magic of the holidays to life in three hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and kisses that will steal your breath away.

Top Ten Clues You're Clueless

Top Five Things That Are Ruining Chloe’s Day

5) Working the 6:30 a.m. shift at GoodFoods Market

4) Crashing a cart into a customer’s car right in front of her snarky coworker Sammi

3) Trying to rock the “drowned rat” look after being caught in a snowstorm

2) Making zero progress with her crush, Tyson (see #3)

1) Being accused—along with her fellow teenage employees—of stealing upwards of $10,000

Chloe would rather be anywhere than locked in work jail (aka the break room) with five of her coworkers . . . even if one of them is Tyson. But if they can band together to clear their names, what looks like a total disaster might just make Chloe’s list of Top Ten Best Moments.

T5W: Books with Hard Topics

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created by Lainey, who you can also follow on Youtube.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books with Hard Topics.

A Monster Calls A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

A book about a kid dealing with his mother’s cancer and imminent death, an absent father and bullying at school.

Now that i think about it, this book has so many hard topics in it, no wonder i was crying almost all the time when i was reading it…

 

This Is Where It Ends This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp.

This is about a school shooting and why ‘everyone has a reason to fear the boy with the gun’.

This book was difficult to read, mostly because it tells what’s happening in a raw way, anyway, this makes the book a very powerful reading (in my opinion).

 

 

The Fault in Our Stars The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

Teenagers dealing with cancer, death and what it means to live a meaningful life.

It took me years to be able to actually read this book, the first time i tried i was crying so badly i decided to put it aside, and it sat there waiting for me for about three years.

 

 

The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1) The Giver by Lois Lowry.

Basically, a utopia and all the things that need to be done so the world seems perfect, even though life isn’t nearly as perfect as people may think.

Such an interesting way of showing what a perfect world would actually need to do to stay perfect, i read this baby in one sit, because it was so intense i couldn’t put it down.

 

 

All the Bright Places All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.

This book deals with grief and mental illness, although it never gives it a particular name ( i think it’s a bipolar disorder), but the way it handles it is so powerful, i don’t have the right words.

The book also deals with some other issues, i won’t tell about because of spoilers, but as i always say, this is my favorite book ever,so i do recommend it, even with all the hard topics it touches.

 

And those are my choices! i know they are pretty known already, i just don’t read much about hard topics because i’m very sensitive and it always makes me cry so i try to stay away from that kind of books… Anyway, which books that deal with hard topic  have you read?!

‘Til Next Time 😉

T5W: Books I Was Spoiled For

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created by Lainey, who you can also follow on Youtube.

T5W: Books I Was Spoiled For (aka; the most annoying thing ever!!!)

5.) Gone GirlGone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I remember hearing about this  book for the first time when i got spoiled for it. I mean…this book and me never got a chance in hell. I blame myself though i spend too much time in tumblr., which means you get spoiled about everything… i’m pretty sure one day they’ll spoil me what’s waiting for us after we die, i just need to be around enough time…

Haven’t read it, not sure if it’s worth it now…

 

 

Looking for Alaska 4.) Looking For Alaska by John Green

Oh my god, i was so angry when i got this book spoiled, i was looking for a summary on the book before picking it up and i found the one web where they compared it to another book i read, making it a huge spoiler. I’m trying to wait a little, i haven’t read it yet… maybe one day the spoiler won’t bother me and i will read it.

 

 

 

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)3.) Winter by Marissa Meyer

So, i haven’t even started this series, but someone already cared for me to know how it all ends. I mean…really? was it necessary? I’m still convinced i’ll read this series anyway, because it seems so beautiful and it has such great reviews, i just need to find the right time and just marathon all the five/six books there are.

 

 

 

All the Bright Places2.) All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

This is theonly one on the list i read after being spoiled… More like, i read it because of the spoiler. At the time i heard about this book i felt very disappointed by knowing it, but after a while, i started looking for this kind of book so it fitted me well. A wonderful book by the way, if you hadn’t read it yet… what are you waiting for?!

 

 

 

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)1.) Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

This one has the most annoying spoiler in the history of books, if you don’t read the books as they were published, even though the books are from two different series, you will eventually get spoiled for the other one.. I mean, i started with The Mortal Instruments, and i didn’t want to read The Infernal Devices before i finished the first one, but by the time i did finished i spoiled TID to myself in such an annoying way i didn’t even read the last book, i don’t care people say the epilogue is the best thing ever, i just don’t.

 

 

Well, those are the books i got spoiled for, 4 out of the 5 i haven’t read, as i said before because knowing so much felt wrong, although i may pick up some of them when time passes and my anger passes… who knows?

What are the books you were spoiled for?!

‘Til Next Time 😉
