Top 5 Tuesday: Books You Read as an ARC

Today’s topic: Top 5 Books You Read as an ARC

Click on my photographs to be linked to my review or the book’s Goodreads page.

IMG_8572This was one of the first ARCs I ever owned. I won it from a Twitter giveaway hosted by Fierce Reads. I love this trilogy and I am hoping to reread it again before the end of the year. 

IMG_8570A Million Junes was my favorite book of 2017 and I haven’t stopped raving about it since.

IMG_8571I adored this retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I’m so excited for Meagan Spooner’s Robin Hood retelling called Sherwood. Is it 2019, yet?

IMG_8569If there is one contemporary writer I highly recommend to readers it’s Emma Mills. Her books are always so swoony and realistic. Definitely give Foolish Hearts a read–the Froot Loops will make sense after you read the book, lol. 

IMG_8574I was so lucky to receive a manuscript ARC of Legendary from Flatiron Books. I love the world of Caraval, and this book did not disappoint.

Before I started blogging, I remember reading Fangirl and loving it. I adored the romance aspect and I was ecstatic that it took place in a college setting.

IMG_8191I was so afraid that I wasn’t going to love this book as much as everyone else raved about it. But I am so glad I pushed myself to read it last year, and I’m excited to give Scorpio Races a reread this autumn (it’s definitely an autumnal read). 

IMG_8192Fantasy is one of my favorite genres to read, and The Storyspinner did not disappoint in that category. I read this book a few years ago, and I would love to dive back into it someday. 

IMG_8193This fall I am planning to reread a few of my favorite witchy and horror books. Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies, and I am looking forward to diving back into the book again (it’s probably been over 10 years since I read it) and possibly doing a comparison post on the differences between the book and the movie.

IMG_8194You probably know by now, because I never shut up about it, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE A Million Junes by Emily Henry. And when I finally do a reread, I cannot wait to swoon and laugh and cry; this book has all the feels!

I love the main character Mim so much in Mosquitoland. She is feisty, honest, and holds nothing back. 

IMG_8046Obviously, Alice drives this story and plot to the very last page. 

IMG_8045
I adore the The Winner’s Trilogy (it’s probably my favorite trilogy EVER), and Kestrel and Arin are the two main forces that drive this fantasy with so much soul and longing and heartache…GAH I love their journey so much. 

IMG_8044
JUNE…in a story filled with grief and loss,  Jack “June” O’Donnell IV provides the much needed humor to make this novel so heartfelt and comforting. With June’s quick wit and humor, this book is like receiving the most welcoming hug and a much-needed cry to get through any sorrowful situation.

IMG_8043As a bildugroman, Jane Eyre speaks through the pages, allowing her reader to follow her progressive footsteps to being an orphan then a governess and then to a Victorian woman with financial means to support herself. Through every page, Jane is fierce and bold, and she never gives up on doing what she feels is right.

The UK edition of Caraval has five different mystery “under the covers,” which include a dress, clock, tent, rose, or top hat.

While trying to collect different versions of The Night Circus, I found this beauty.

I can’t find a personal picture that I have taken of the naked hardcover of The Cruel Prince, but if you ever lift up the jacket–behold the beauty!

I am currently collecting all four “under the cover” hardcovers of Legendary. My favorite so far is the Shattered Crown edition.

Once again, I cannot find a personal picture, but you guys, trust me, the naked hardcover of The Wicked Deep is beautiful. If you ever find a copy, the hardback has a moon and stars foiled into the hardback. I love it.

Top 5 Tuesday: Favorite Books to Collect (Free Week)

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Bionic Book Worm

Today’s topic: Free Week, so today I am highlighting some of my favorite books that I like to collect.

IMG_7681I read Uprooted three years ago, a few weeks before my mom passed away. It was the last book that I remember raving about to her, so it will always be a wonderful memory that I hold in my heart. This book has everything from magic, fantasy, a fierce heroine, and a slow-burn romance. 

IMG_7683One summer, during graduate school, I found The Night Circus and devoured it in one sitting. If there is one book in the world that I would want to experience the magic of reading all over again for the first time, it would be The Night Circus

IMG_7684Last summer, I fell so deeply in love with a little story filled with loss and grief and so much love, and that book was called A Million Junes. Emily Henry’s storytelling had me laughing, crying, and swooning. I love that book so so much, and I wish it was on more TBRs, because this hidden gem is so magical and gush-worthy. 

IMG_7685
The Winner’s Curse was one of the first ever ARCs I won (via Twitter) from a huge publisher. When I received it in the mail, I devoured Kestrel and Arin’s story, and from that day on, I became one of The Winner’s Trilogy’s biggest cheerleaders. 

IMG_7686
I adore Stephanie Garber’s world of Caraval. I am always book-pushing this book/series to any reader that loves mystery, romance, and fantasy. 

Honorary Collection:

IMG_7682
I have been collecting different editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland since high school. Not only do I love the story and world, but I love finding new and different editions with beautiful covers.
