Late April Wrap-Up/ May TBR

May looks like it is going to be an incredibly busy month for me. This week I am going to Cork in Ireland to visit University College Cork as I found out on Friday that I was accepted to study an MA in Creative Writing! Yay!

At the end of May I am going to Dubai in UAE to see my best friend get married. I am really excited as I have never been to Dubai! I plan on posting full updates of all my travels when I get back!

All this travelling will either provide me with ample time for reading or cut into my reading time so much that I don’t get any done! It will definitely be one extreme or the other!

So what is on your May TBR? Have you read any of the books I have featured here? Have you been to a wedding in Dubai or to Cork University? Comment down below and link me up to your blog, I will do some blog travelling this month as well!

Much booky love,

March Wrap-Up

Wow, so I am typing this post whilst watching Pretty Woman ( I had forgotten how amazing it was?)…so it is taking me a long time to type!!

It has been a busy month! I have read 10 books! This means I am well on my way to meeting my Goodreads Challenge of 70 books in 2015! So here they are!

Library Books

Grave Surprise

An Ice Cold Grave

These two books are book 2 and 3 in the series and I was so happy when I finished book three because a love story that has been hinted at throughout the books has finally happened! Yay!

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

I loved this book and I definitely want to read the rest of this series! The ending was such a wtf moment! I am ordering in the rest of the series to my library branch!

Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

men of otherworld

Ugh, the title of this book! It sucks! But the book is really good I promise! It is all about the Danvers family before Clay met Elena from the Bitten series. 

Physical Books I Own

Deadly Class by Rick Remender, Wesley Craig and Lee Loughridge

Deadly class

This is a graphic novel about a school for assassins! So cool! I want to be an assassin. Well, I don’t, but I love reading about them! V. Political book!

Soulless, the Manga Volume 1 by Gail Carriger

Soulless

After finishing this I really wanted to read the novels, and to my surprise, my local library has them! So I have ordered the first one so I can collect that next week!

Notes from the Teenage Underground by Simmone Howell

Notes from Teenage Underground

I read this book after reading Girl Defective by Simmone Howell. She has such an incredibly detached way of writing that really draws you in to the story, I love it!

The Bane Chronicles

Bane Chronicles

Aah Magnus Bane, I love you! Even more so now I have finished this book! Thank you Cassandra Clare for creating such awesomeness in a character! Also, that cover! I love the cats eyes!

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Cress

Aaah, I finally finished this book! I have been reading this book for about two months and I reached the last three chapters and stopped reading because I knew what was going to happen and I knew it would break my heart. I finally finished it on March 31st and what I thought was going t happen, didn’t…! Oops! I wasted all that time when I could have been reading this awesomeness! Oh well, now I can reread! As always, Marissa Meyer has flawlessly immersed a fairy tale story into a futuristic world in a way guaranteed to make you squirm, laugh and squeal!

All Fall Down by Ally Carter

All Fall Down final cover

This was a book that I had preordered and I read it almost as soon as it hit my doormat. Then i put off posting a reviews for a whole month because I was so caught up I couldn’t function. I had to reread the ending a few times because it felt vaguely like a dream, so I don’t know if I loved it or hated it. I want to read the next in the series though so I guess that is a good sign?

It also came with a cute little mascara, which is awesome sauce because I always manage to lose my mascara. Seriously, I think they grow legs and just walk off??

So that is all from March! Link me to your March wrap-up and I will come and check it out! If you have read any of these books, or want to read any of these books or even if you just like the covers, comment below!

Much booky love
