Most Anticipated Books!

For the next few months there are some very interesting books coming out! I am especially excited about these few:

In November...
Winter by Marissa Meyer
This is the last(?) book in the Lunar Chronicles. So far there have been three books and a novel based on the villain of the story.

In December...
Untamed: A Splintered Companion by A.G.Howard
There are three books in this series that are based on the story of Alice in Wonderland. Very entertaining fantasy plots!

In January...
The Boy Who Lost Fairyland by Catherine M.Valente
Another book within a series. However, these books are more like adult adventure stories. They are captivating and lets your imagination run wild!

In February...
Sex Criminals Volume 3: Three the Hard Way by Chip Zdarsky, Matt Fraction
Comic series about when these two people have sex time stops... funny and a bit naughty. The plot seems to get more ridiculous but more and more funny at the same time.

Let me know if there is any literature that you are looking forward to!

#BookBuddyAThon Outcome

So I hope that your readathon was better than mine... I only managed to read two books :'(.

I read: Little Women and Nimona (it has a navy cover so I used this comic instead). The latter I gave five stars too as the art was great and so was the plot!

Also, I have read 100 pages of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children... it's really creepy so far.

Just a quick readathon round off from me,

#BookBuddyAThon TBR

I thought I would take part in another readathon and this one has a little bit of a twist. You have to do it with a buddy. I picked my best friend Heidi :), another book worm. The people that are leading this readathon are: Elenareadsbooks and Coldteaandcrumbs on Youtube. This readathon starts today (7th September) to the 13th September, so only a week to read five books!

The Challenges are...
1) Choose three books and get your buddy to pick one from them for you to read.
2) Buddy read a book with your buddy.
3) Read a book with your buddy's favourite colour on the cover.
4) Read a book your buddy gave 5 stars.
5) Read a book that you want to... just because.

For these I picked (I tried to incorporate some of my September TBR) ...
1) We Are Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
2) Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott
3) Her favourite colour is navy... Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley  
4) The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
5) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (Its being made into a move soon by Tim Burton!!!)

I've started with the latter book and next I am hoping to read Little Women... I shall keep you updated!

Happy reading,
