Book Blogger Hop #144, July 10th

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013. Check out the hop here

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

The Question of the week is: If you can recommend a book from the following genres, what would they be? A book from Romance, NA, YA, Fantasy. (submitted by Tabatha @ Broken Soul Reviews)

Romance, that's hard. I would have to say, Heart of a Dragon by Gena Showalter, I just enjoy it so much! NA, I would say, though it's classified as YA, Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, because the characters are older. YA, Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Fantasy, Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. And because I want to add it, for Mystery, I would recommend Deja Dead by Kathy Riechs, for Thriller, I would recommend Subterranean by James Rollins. Yeah. What about you guys? Happy reading!

First Lines Friday #478, July 10th

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. We encourage all of our fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

-Grab your current read(s)
-Share the first line(s)
-Include the title and author so that other FLF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists!

"A girl is perched in the cab of a utility van. In one hand was a baby-food jar full of liquid. In the other was a dagger, silver and glittering int eh rust glow of the streetlight outside. Her hair was a Mohawk of wavy chestnut locks, sides buzzed down to dark stubble." -Burn the Dark by S.A. Hunt

Well, knives, that's interesting and dangerous and I need to read more! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Page-a-Thon Update 12

So I read my next book for Page-a-Thon, and it was Origin, and I'll be reading Burn the Dark next! I also read The Sign of the Jaguar by Jessica Khoury, but it's only 4 pages long, so I'm just not going to count it.

Make Your Myth-Taker Readathon 2020 Update 31

So I read my next book of this readathon, and it was Origin, which is for Reread a Favourite. I'll be reading Shadow of the Fox next! I am going to take 3 days off from this, because I have Becca's BookoplAthon Saturday and Sunday, and I have to read the first book of a series before than, so that's Friday, so I'll come back to this on Monday. Unless I can make a future prompt fit with a book on this TBR!

Becca's BookoplAthon 48 Hour Round Sign Up

So I'm signing up for Becca's BookoplAthon, of the 48 Hour Round, taking place July 11th-12th, and you can find the twitter with information here. I'm not going to be doing it at the same time, though, I'm going to be using my midnight start and stop, because I'm around half a day behind England's time, so I didn't want to start that early.

So we've only gotten 2 prompts, and I don't know how much I'm going to read, but here's what I've got if I have time for both of the prompts.

Paranormal/Magical Realism: I Come With Knives by S.A. Hunt
Chance Card: I did a poll on twitter, and here's the results:
So The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon.

We don't have the prompts for the other 3 sections, but we'll get them every half day. Can't wait to start reading! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Random Reads #451, July 9th

Random Reads is a monthly meme (that I'm going to do weekly) hosted by I'm Loving Books to read some books that have been on our TBR piles for a long time. Using Random.org, I got 3788 which turned out to be The First Midnight Spell by Claudia Gray! It's been on my TBR pile since July 14th, 2013, and I added it because I love her writing! Happy reading!

Third Sentence Thursday #465, July 9th

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!


Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme which likes to watch fireworks especially while eating a cookie!
1) Take the book you are currently reading and open it to a random page. Share the third full sentence on that page. (If there isn't a third one – like at the end of a chapter or a blank page – you can share the third sentence of the book or just choose another random page.) Feel free to share more than one sentence, if you feel the need to do so.
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence at Words I Write Crazy (This Blog)
4) Visit one or two of the other blogs to check out their third sentences!

"Every day I hear it, from the scientists or the guards, from my mother or from my Aunt Brigid." -Origin by Jessica Khoury, page 1.

Well, that sounds annoying!

What are your guy's 3rd lines? Link up below!

Will the Time Come #475, July 9th

Every Thursday I am going to list a book which I really want to read/keep meaning to get to. These are mostly books which have been on my shelf for awhile now but don't have to be, maybe you got it two weeks ago and really want to read it! Thanks to Jodie from Books for Company for this meme!

A fever ravages New London, but with the Brotherhood sending suspected witches straight to the gallows, the Sisters are powerless against the disease. They can’t help without revealing their powers—as Cate learns when a potent display of magic turns her into the most wanted witch in all of New England.

To make matters worse, Cate has been erased from the memory of her beloved Finn. While she’s torn between protecting him from further attacks and encouraging him to fall for her all over again, she’s certain she can never forgive Maura’s betrayal. And now that Tess’s visions have taken a deadly turn, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer to its fulfillment. 

Why the time hasn't come yet...
It's been a while since I read book 1 and 2, so I'm going to have to reread them before reading this book! But I want to read it! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday #478, July 8th

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

No Offense by Meg Cabot
Expected Publication: August 11th, 2020
From Goodreads:
New York Times -bestselling author Meg Cabot's returns with a charming romance between a children's librarian and the town sheriff in the second book in the Little Bridge Island series.


Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest, most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys, home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margaritas, and stunning sunsets—a place where nothing goes under the radar and love has a way of sneaking up when least expected... 

A broken engagement only gave Molly Montgomery additional incentive to follow her dream job from the Colorado Rockies to the Florida Keys. Now, as Little Bridge Island Public Library’s head of children’s services, Molly hopes the messiest thing in her life will be her sticky-note covered desk. But fate—in the form of a newborn left in the restroom—has other ideas. So does the sheriff who comes to investigate the “abandonment”.  When John Hartwell folds all six-feet-three of himself into a tiny chair and insists that whoever left the baby is a criminal, Molly begs to differ and asks what he’s doing about the Island’s real crime wave (if thefts of items from homes that have been left unlocked could be called that). Not the best of starts, but the man’s arrogance is almost as distracting as his blue eyes. Almost… 

John would be pretty irritated if one of his deputies had a desk as disorderly as Molly’s. Good thing she doesn’t work for him, considering how attracted he is to her. Molly’s lilting librarian voice makes even the saltiest remarks go down sweeter, which is bad as long as she’s a witness but might be good once the case is solved—provided he hasn’t gotten on her last nerve by then. Recently divorced, John has been having trouble adjusting to single life as well as single parenthood. But something in Molly’s beautiful smile gives John hope that his old life on Little Bridge might suddenly hold new promise—if only they can get over their differences. 

Clever, hilarious, and fun, No Offense will tug at readers’ heartstrings and make them fall in love with Little Bridge Island and its unique characters once again. 

Cut Off by Adrianne Finlay
Expected Publication: August 11th, 2020
From Goodreads:
Warcross meets Lost in this haunting young adult sci-fi thriller in which teens compete to survive in the wilderness for one million dollars on a new virtual reality show. When something goes horribly wrong and the contestants realize no one is coming to save them, they must question their very reality—and how much of the game is really for show.

Each contestant has their own reasons—and their own secrets—for joining the new virtual reality show CUT/OFF that places a group of teenagers alone in the wilderness. It’s a simple premise: whoever lasts the longest without “tapping out” wins a cash prize. Not only that, new software creates a totally unprecedented television experience, allowing viewers to touch, see, and live everything along with the contestants. But what happens when “tapping out” doesn’t work and no one comes to save you? What happens when the whole world seemingly disappears while you’re stranded in the wild? Four teenagers must confront their greatest fears, their deepest secrets, and one another when they discover they are truly cut off from reality. Sci-fi, mystery, and romance converge in this high-stakes, fast-paced read that will leave you guessing to the very last moment. 

Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar
Expected Publication: August 11th, 2020
From Goodreads:
This gorgeously imagined YA debut blends shades of Neil Gaiman's Stardust and a breathtaking landscape of Hindu mythology into a radiant contemporary fantasy.

The daughter of a star and a mortal, Sheetal is used to keeping secrets. Pretending to be "normal." But when an accidental flare of her starfire puts her human father in the hospital, Sheetal needs a full star's help to heal him. A star like her mother, who returned to the sky long ago.

Sheetal's quest to save her father will take her to a celestial court of shining wonders and dark shadows, where she must take the stage as her family's champion in a competition to decide the next ruling house of the heavens--and win, or risk never returning to Earth at all.

Brimming with celestial intrigue, this sparkling YA debut is perfect for fans of Roshani Chokshi and Laini Taylor. 

Yeah, 3 really great books, I've read Cut Off and it was really fantastic, and I can't wait for these other 2! What about you guys? Happy reading!

WWW Wednesday #482, July 8th

Make Your Myth-Taker Readathon 2020 Update 28

So I read my next book of this readathon, and it was The Antidote, which is for Go Into a Book Blind. I'll be reading Children of Blood and Bone next! I wish that I'd finished this yesterday, but I had a monster headache last night (I've been fighting one on and off all week, most annoying!) so I went to sleep to get away from the pain. If I hadn't, I would've finished it yesterday, but I did. Oh, well! Time to read more!

Wheel of TBR #6, July 5th

I saw Codie's Book Corner doing the Wheel of TBR, and I thought that sounded like a great way to pick what to read from your TBR. So thanks to her! I'll only do 3 spins, because I'm doing this every week, and so it won't make up my total TBR of the week, but it'll be a start!

Rules:
1. On the first week of the month, I'll do 12 spins, for books that I'll have all month to read. For each week for the rest of the month, I'll do 3 spins each week to read each week though I do have the rest of the month to read them. Once a prompt is used, I'll randomly choose one from the list, keeping track of how often a colour comes up. If colour comes up 4 or more times in a month, I'll do another spin once it comes up 4 times.
2. If I don't read a book that week or at least start it in that month, then at the end of the month, if I have more than 2 unread books, I'll unhaul at least one book.

I finally read Summer Knight, Dorothy Must Die, Tiny Pretty Things, and The Beast is an Animal. I'm doing extra spins today because I just want to spin and spin!
