It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? ~ July Wrap Up


~~~

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly event on my blog; So Many Books So Little Time. This is where book bloggers and readers gather to talk about what books they’ve read and/or reviewed last week, what books they’re currently reading and what books they’re planning to read. This is a great way to organise/plan our reading week/month, and to take a sneak peek at what others are reading. Usually Posted on Monday’s.

Hello, bookish lovelies! 📚 Good Morning & How was your weekend?!

Sooo today, I was thinking that I should post one of these! Like I said last month, I’ll primarily be using this type of post for a Monthly Book/Review Wrap Up. Not sure if I’ll make this a weekly thing, or bi-weekly, like I’ve said I would. But ya never know.

Sooo, like I said, I’m going to share the books I’ve read in the past month/two weeks, or whenever. As well as some of the books I’m thinking of reading next! And maybe y’all can help me pick! 😍💕

Also, I’d love to know what you’re reading!

Anyways, on to the book part of this post! 🤩😍📚

Hello, bookish lovelies! 📚 Good Morning & How was your weekend?!

Sooo today, I was thinking that I should post one of these! I know, I know I haven’t posted one of these in forever! Lately I’ve been really disorganized or rather, I’ve been feeling disorganized, with my blog, and TBR list. And in the past I found that this was a good way to keep track of everything, as well as kind of decide what books I should read next (I have so many books, on my shelf that I have not read & I keep buying more, soo it’s really hard to pick sometimes 🙊).

So, yeah, I might start making this a weekly thing, or bi-weekly, I’m not too sure yet. Most likely bi-weekly because I’m a slowww reader xD, okay, maybe not that slow? It takes me about 4 days (about 1.5 – 2hrs each day) to read one book, sometimes longer, especially if it’s a good book and I don’t want it to end. Mhmm, do you think that’s slow? 🤔 Haha.

In this post, I’m just going to share the books I’ve read in the past few months; I mean if I share everything I’ve read this year, this post will be wayyy too long (2017 Reads)! As well as some of the books I’m thinking of reading next! And maybe y’all can help me pick! 😍💕

Also, I’d love to know what you’re reading!

Anyways, on to the book part of this post! 🤩😍📚

    • V Games by Caroline Peckham | ARC | Goodreads
    • Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter | Goodreads
    • The Mostly True Story of Jack by Kelley Barnhill | Goodread

I got an ARC for V Games about 2 weeks ago, and I don’t know why it took me so long to read it! Today is the release day! Although, I’m only 96% finished it and I’ve already reviewed it because I wanted/needed to post before the release day.

I got The Mostly True Story of Jack by Kelley Barnhill a couple of days ago. It’s not the type of book I would usually pick, but the cover and the green colour in the cover is soo pretty, I had to buy it. Lol. Yeah I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover… but I know we’re all guilty of it!🙊

✨What book(s) have you bought purely because of the cover? ✨

Happy Monday & Happy Reading!

Book Blitz ~ Phobic by Cortney Pearson: Guest Post + Giveaway!


Phobic (The Forbidden Doors, #1)

Phobic by Cortney Pearson

(The Forbidden Doors #1)
Publication date: September 8th 2014
Genres: Horror, Young Adult

Amazon |B&N

Fifteen-year-old Piper Crenshaw knows her house is strange. It’s never needed repairs since it was built in the 1800s, and the lights flicker in response to things she says. As if those things aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.

To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door, which hides a staircase that leads to the ceiling. That’s when the flashbacks of the original residents from 1875 start, including a love affair between two young servants. Each vision pulls Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. Piper confides in her best friend, Todd, whom she’s gradually falling for, but even he doesn’t believe her. At least, not until her house gets axed during a prank, and the act injures Piper instead, cutting a gash the size of Texas into her stomach.

Piper realizes her house isn’t haunted—it’s alive. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime, before she becomes part of her house for good.

~Guest Post~

 One of my favorite things about PHOBIC is the flashbacks to the past that Piper has. Halfway through, she begins seeing the original residents of her house from back in 1875, and she also witnesses a tragic love story between two of the servants. Here’s a swoony excerpt:

“We may not like it,” Ada says, “but two servants in love can do very little where their master is concerned.”

Thomas faces her again. This time, a twinkle lays in his blue eyes, and a smile quirks at the corner of his mouth. “You do love me.”

Silence pulses between them. Ada never breaks from his gaze. I’m warm from my knee-knocking kiss with Todd, but at the look they share, the temperature goes up a few more degrees.

Heart and soul,” she says through her teeth, “and may I burn for the admission.”

However, not all the flashbacks are lovey-dovey. In fact, they’re pretty dark and add to the book’s creep factor. And while writing them, I needed insults from the 1800s. I found this website, along with this list.

Not that I’m huge into insulting people (really, I’m not!) but some of these struck me as just plain funny. (Thou beslubbering, beef-witted barnacle!)

Oh, the things writers find while researching their books!

So all you saucy, tickle-brained strumpets, what’s your favorite combination? 😀
