And that is all the physical books! Hella lot isn’t there! I guess when you split it up by Japanese and English, the piles start to even out–kinda….

So the big question is…. 

What do you want me to read? What do you recommend? Not recommend? What should I read ASAP?

Burn, Re-Read, Re-Write Tag

Another tag for y’all today! Hope you like what came up – I certainly had fun and found it difficult! xD Again I will just write them in Burn, Re-Read, Re-Write order xD and once again – like yesterday’s – I wasn’t tagged by anyone but really wanted to do it!

Round 1

P1010402

StarDust – Just ugh, I was seriously disappointed with it.
Mistborn – ❤
5th Wave – this book started off amazing and creepy and I was loving it. Just wish it’d stayed that way and not focused so much on the romance, or else, I think I could’ve loved it!

Round 2

P1010403

Daughter of Smoke and Bone – I really did not like this book.
A Series of Unfortunate Events – Love love love this series and wouldn’t mind re-reading even just the 13th one again.
Thief’s Magic – loved this book but it wasn’t perfect; just wish a few things were changed slightly. e.g. not being so religion-heavy.

Round 3

P1010404  

This one was torture!! They’re all my favourite books of all time! ='[ I don’t wanna do this one… but I must…

Half Blood Prince – I am SO sorry but I love the other two just a little more ='[
The Hobbit
The Lord of the Rings – no idea how I’d re-write it… maybe just the ending? Change it to where Hobbiton hasn’t gone to shit in the end?

Round 4

P1010405

Noughts and Crosses
The Golden Compass – love love love this book and it’s series!
Eragon – again, no idea what I would change about it…but would rather re-write it than burn it!

Round 5

P1010406

50 Shades of Gray – is there any other fitting section for it?
Mort – probably my favourite Terry Pratchett book so far ❤
Picture of Dorian Gray – another book I love… I think I’d re-write it and put it in modern day, that’s all xD

So what do you think? Do you agree? Any others you would want me to pick between?

I tag…. YOU!

Fuck, Marry, Kill Tag

P1010401

Game of Thrones Edition!! Let’s get started!! It will literally go in order of who I would Fuck then Marry then Kill! ^_^ Enjoy!

Round One!

P1010407

Jamie Lannister
Jon Snow
Theo GreyJoy

Round Two!

P1010408

Ned Stark
Sam
Joffrey Baratheon

Round Three!

P1010409

Oberyn
Bran Stark – Weird I know but I’d rather be married to him than have to either kill him or fuck him; he’s only like 12!
Robert Baratheon

Round Four!

P1010410

Jorah
The Hound
Rob Stark – sorry, not a fan.

Round Five!

P1010411

Drogo

Who would you choose?! Any others you want to give me to decide between?

Top Ten Tuesday #18

 

This Week’s Topic: Ten Books I Want to Read but Don’t Own [Yet]
This week’s topic I am loving because it’ll help me figure out what books I really want ASAP and also gives you a hint of what, when I buy books, my next haul will be 😉

The Way of Kings, Part 1 (The Stormlight Archive, #1.1)

1. Anything by Brandon Sanderson PLEASE! But this series I am dying to start! As soon as I’ve read all his other books, I promise! But the wait will kill me but at the same time, only two books of the series are out so far xD

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1)

2. Rick Riordan is a genius with greek mythology! Loved Percy Jackson, now I need this series too!

Ready Player One

3. Videos games, 80s pop and a plot similar to Sword Art Online? I’m there! Give me!

1984

4. It’s a classic, it’s a must, it sounds awesome!

The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1)

5. This series is like ‘if you love fantasy, it’s a compulsory read; whether you end up liking it or not’ because everyone who loves fantasy, knows this series and it’s author and everyone’s read at least the first book – I want in!

The Giver (The Giver #1)

6. Same with 1984 – it’s a classic, must, sounds awesome and I want to read it < nothing to do with the movie coming out btw, always wanted to read it!

Assassin's Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy, #1)

7. Again, it’s the build-blocks and in the starter pack of ‘in order to love fantasy, these books are a must’.

Prisoner of Night and Fog (Prisoner of Night and Fog, #1)

8. Had my eye on it even before it was released! Still dying for it t be in my hands and mind!

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)

9. The steampunk queen! I really want to read this series as I love things steampunk.

Horns

10. I recently saw the trailer for the film and was like ‘I gotta read this book!’ The only reason I never picked it up before was because I found out he was Stephen King’s son and I was like ‘that’s gunna be scary – hell no!’

What is on your lists? Link me! What do you think of my list?

Same Time, Next Week!
