Top Ten Tuesday | 10 Fandoms I'm In

The Top Ten Tuesday weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Today's top ten are fandoms that I associate myself with. There are so many more, but I the ones I listed below are pretty representative of what I like. I attempted to broaden the scope by including TV show fandoms, music fandoms, and manga/anime fandoms as well. I had a lot of fun with these gifs, so I hope you enjoy them too.

What fandoms are you in? Let me know in the comments!

1. Supernatural

Just one of my favourite TV shows of all time.
I don't even watch that many shows though-- can I still have a favourite?
Whatever.

2. Teen Wolf

I was absolutely addicted to this show when I started it.
I love the concepts, ideas, and the plot.
A fantastic cast tops it off!

3. Harry Potter

This is one of my longest-standing fandoms.
I grew up with this series.
Once a Potterhead, ALWAYS a Potterhead.

That's a Wrap | January to March 2017


I had a good start at the beginning of the year, but I can already feel my schedule filling up from this point on. (Goodreads tells me I'm three books behind already!) Still, at fourteen books this quarter, I think I did pretty well. Without further ado, here are the books I read from January to March.

1. Bitter of Tongue by Cassandra Clare

There are some great moments in here that help to get a better sense of the Shadowhunter universe.


SYNOPSIS
When Simon is kidnapped by the fey, he’s amazed to find a friend in former Shadowhunter Mark Blackthorn. One of ten adventures in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. After Simon is kidnapped by faeries (why is he always kidnapped?), he uncovers rumors of a secret weapon Sebastian left behind for the faerie queen. He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn.

2. The Fiery Trial by Cassandra Clare

I love that we get to see the parabatai ritual and what it entails.


SYNOPSIS
Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn become parabatai. Simon and Clary both act as their witnesses, so they can see what a parabatai bond forming looks like as they want to become parabatai as soon as Simon graduates — and because Emma asked Clary. The ritual goes unexpectedly ...

3. Born to Endless Night by Cassandra Clare

One word: MALEC. 90% of the reason I watch the Shadowhunters TV show is because of Malec. #sorrynotsorry


SYNOPSIS
Simon, like the rest of the Academy, is stunned when a navy-skinned warlock baby is found on the Academy steps. They hand the child over to guest lecturer Magnus Bane, who has to bring a child home ... temporarily, of course ... to his man!

First Lines Friday [12]

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

I just recently reread this and it was just as touching as when I first read this. For some reason, I have not read many of this author's works since, so I went to BMV and bought a bunch. :'D

Can you guess what the book is?

THE LINES

When I was seventeen, my life changed forever.

I know that there are people who wonder about me when I say this. They look at me strangely as if trying to fathom what could have happened back then, though I seldom bother to explain. Because I've lived here for most of my life, I don't feel that I have to unless it's on my own terms, and that would take more time than most people are willing to give me.

★★★★½
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.

She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I've Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.
Note: Because this is the second book of a series, there WILL be To All the Boys I've Loved Before spoilers in this review. DO NOT read this review if you have not yet read the first book ... you have been warned.

This review is so long overdue. I read this all the way back in 2016, which seems oh so very far away. But, I just had to write this review because the book so freaking good, and I need to recommend it to EVERYBODY.

First Lines Friday [11]

THE LINES
My hand shakes as I brace myself against the brick wall. Rain falls cold and sharp against my skin, from a sky I've never seen before. It's hard to catch my breath, to get any sense of where I am. All I know is that the Firebird worked. It hangs around my neck, still glowing with the heat of the journey.

Top Ten Tuesday | 10 Books On My Spring TBR

 Top Ten Tuesday | 10 Books On My Spring TBR
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and The Bookish.
Springtime always makes me want to read contemporary and romance. I suppose it's the freshness of the air, and the heavy rain outside that makes me want to curl up under covers and read a nice love story. Here are ten books I'm planning to read this spring, composed of mostly--you guessed it-- romance novels.

Book Haul | Almost Spring Book Outlet Buys

Hello friends! The weather here in Canada is fluctuating like crazy, so even though winter's supposed to be on it's way to gone, it doesn't feel like it. But at least I have these books here to keep me company in the warmth of my house! I bought these books from Book Outlet all the way back in January, but haven't had the time to haul them until now.

I picked up a bunch of books I've been wanting to read for a while now, as well as a select few that I've read but wanted for my library. Without further ado, here are the latest additions to my collection.
