I am SO excited to read this. I received it as a Christmas present a few months ago and it's time I finally get around to it. I read Winger a couple of years and go and it absolutely destroyed me. Probably more than any other book has before (if you've read it, you know why), I read the gut-wrenching part of Winger while I was on a bus ride to New York City and let's just say my fellow bus riders were more than slightly concerned. Plus, Smith made me discover my favorite quote of all time: "Crede Quod Habes, et Habes," which means believe that you have it, and you do. Andrew Smith's writing style is so different from the elaborate metaphorical and imagery-packed style I'm used to, so I'm excited for a refreshing read. AND HOPEFULLY THIS ONE DOESN'T EMOTIONALLY SLAUGHTER ME LIKE THE LAST ONE.
I started reading this book when I was in seventh grade, then I lost the copy I was reading and never finished it. Since I love the movie so much and I hear great things about the book, I think its time for me to pluck it off my TBR shelves for a well-deserved read.

The Assassin's Blade and Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (Prequel and fifth installment of the Throne of Glass series)
I think this one is pretty self-explanatory since I've expressed my love for Sarah J. Maas and her books pretty thoroughly on this blog.
I AM STILL READING THIS!!! I need to finish it soon otherwise it's going to turn into a DNF and it really really doesn't deserve that. The characters are very interesting, the plot is dark, twisted, and mysterious. I just don't know what's up with me and not finishing this book but I'm not allowing it to continue for any longer.
I finished the Lunar Chronicles within the past six months (loved it!!!) and I think it would be wise of me to read this collection of novellas before I forget aspects of the plot and the characters that I love so much. Plus I'm really missing Thorne and Cress <3 So yeah, NEED to read this soon.
This pick is mostly because I really really want to watch the movie but I have a rule about reading the book before watching the movie (: But, I've also heard amazing things about the book so it's happening everyone. It's happening.
So, I recently started a book club with a few friends that I met through my book instagram, and this is our first book that we chose!!! Exciting! I honestly don't know a lot about except for the fact that I've seen it EVERYWHERE and it's supposed to be great. So, yeah, I'm excited (:
I read the first book in this series, The Red Queen, a few years ago and I'm going to be honest. I don't remember any of it besides the closing scene. So after extensive research on the plot of the first book to try and gain a grasp on what's going on, it's time for me to start the second. Plus, everyone is talking about how fantastic the third one is. Also, this is a book I'm reading now(:
I'm still trucking my way through this one, slowly but surely. I'm not putting too much pressure on myself to dedicate myself solely to finish this book because I want to savor it and, if I'm being honest, I don't want it to slump me.
