I mean I know I love reading and I really do make it a priority as a hobby but I’ve definitely had sometimes where it felt less fun. I remember reading CoLS and being SO SHOOK at the ending and how I couldn’t wait for for City if Heavenly Fire to come out the following May. I was really into the TMI fandom at the time and the anticipation for the book to come out was so much fun. It was my first time really waiting for a book to release! 2014-2015 were just such great reading years for me that in 2016 nothing felt like it could live up to my prime reading days (save for ACOMAF). 2017 was better but so far 2018 has been great! I’ve just been in such a reading kick, and more in tune with new releases, and just EXCITED about books again. It may have something to do with me being posting different things on my insta that was /just books/ for so long. Whatever the reason, I’m really enjoying it 😊.

I don’t really take notes while I’m reading, but I do tab some parts (or highlight if it’s an ebook) so I can remember the parts I enjoyed or didn’t enjoy. I think I started reading more critically in the last year or so. Before that I honestly only give a book a lower rating if I didn’t like the writing style or found elements parts controversial/uncomfortable. Even if I really didn’t like a book I’d still give it like three stars for an β€œaverage” rating. These days, I rarely give books five stars! I’ve learned so much more about literature and I’m able to look at a novel in a wholistic sense and pinpoint what it did or didn’t do with its plot, characters, etc. Also, sometimes my rating are just visceral. There’s based so much on emotion that I know what I’ll rate the book before I’m done reading it. Especially if it’s by an author I’ve read a lot from and includes characters that I love. For example, Anna and the French Kiss is my all time favorite book that I reread every year. When I start it, I know that it’s going to be a five star read for me.

Thank you @foreverromancebooks for sending me a copy of The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting that hits shelves on August 7th!!

Here’s the synopsis: β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Lilah isn't sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career, or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she's no longer that same girl and never wants to be again.
Ethan Kane wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.
Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let him in, though, she finds out their reunion has nothing to do with her and everything to do with his game. But Ethan's already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he'll do anything to keep from losing her again

Synopsis β€”β€”β€”
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beautyβ€”and her time with the princess’ fiancΓ©, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection...because one wrong move could lead to her death.

I don’t know why it took me so long to pick up this book. I lived for every word and it meant so much to me to read about a black community. I laughed a lot and tabbed some of my favorite parts. Oddly enough, the book’s impact didn’t really hit me until the end and I just sat and sobbed for a good 10 minutes. I wrote a review on my goodreads (my username is dejajade) that talks more about my feelings toward the book. Representation matters so much. I can’t wait for the film!

I’m going to my college orientation in exactly 5 days. How weird πŸ€”. It still hasn’t really hit me just yet. On another note, I’ve been seeing lots of BookCon post and it seems like a lot of fun. I’m thinking of making plans for next year... The closest I’ve ever been to NY was when I was stuck at the Newark, NJ airport for 5 hours two years ago lol. But a book event seems like a great reason to visit the big city. My theme is gonna be a little different from here on out. I jumped on the VSCO bandwagon and I’m in love with this filter πŸ’›

I read ACOFAS the week of its release and I was happy to be reading about my favorite inner circle again. The book doesn’t really have a plot and doesn’t introduce us to anything new in the world of Prythian but I still ate it up 🀩. My only disappointment was that I thought the spin-off excerpt would introduce us to new characters in courts we haven’t seen. The direction it seems to be taking just doesn’t really interest me (though I’m sure I’ll still read it). If youre an ACOTAR fan, let me know what you thought of ACOFAS.

All my leisure reading is kind of on the back burner right now since I am a second semester senior which means I’m dragging out every bit of motivation I have toward my school work. Happy Thursday!
