Hello hedgehogs, it’s SPRING TIME! *checks calendar* Ookeeeey not officially apparently, but it’s started getting dark at *holds breath* SIX O’ CLOCK. So that basically means it’s spring, teehee. And also happy Pancake Day! After writing this I’m definitely going to enjoy some sweet pancakes. 🙂
Off the topic of food and onto books and stuff though; I’ve been lacking in reading motivation recently, maybe it’s the cold winter months that make me hibernate, but after looking at my stack of books on my wonderfully decorated bookshelf ( 😀 ) that I still need to read next, I’m back into the swing-a-things. Let me tell you about my To Be Read list my friends, (wow on a side note that really does sound kinda creepy, hm.)
This lil ‘bookworm chats’ is going to probably become a thing, so sit back in your comfy chair (yes I know it’s comfy) and enjoy my 5 to be read..
- Number one is one I’m about 300 pages in, which is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (yes I do HAVE to keep you all updated on my Haz Potter progress so do NOT question me.) 😉 And I have thought all the HPs get pretty much straight into the action, but this one is a bit more slow to reach the climax, which is made up by the fact I get to know all the characters more incLUDing the owls, hehe I am an owl fangirl and proud.
- Onto books I haven’t started, Chasing the Stars by Malorie Blackman is definitely my next choice because it’s been sat on my shelf for so long since I’ve been absorbed by Haz P (I need to stop shortening words, yes?) Blackman has always been one of my favourite authors, since reading the Noughts and Crosses series (if you’ve read them please start a conversation with me in the comments about them!!) which meant I couldn’t get sleep before I knew what happened, so I kind of have high hopes for it- which probably isn’t a good thing because I hate being disappointed by a book! (Think of a grumpy cat’s face, yup that’s me when I am let down)
- The House of Mountfathom– Nigel McDowell : GRR this book! It makes me so frustrated because parts of the story I really like the writing style, but the fact I mentioned it in a bookish post WAY back in October/November just speaks for itself in the fact I still haven’t finished it and it only has 400 pages (big writing). I’m determined to burrow my way through it though because I love a good story about magic.
- And now we go onto the OFFICIAL PRETTIEST COVERS OUT THERE, which includes The Snow Angel *gasps*…*and faints* I recieved this for Christmas and it feels so precious, plus the story sounds oh-so intriguing and thought-provoking, and with a summary that features the line ‘the power of nature to heal us’ I really am excited to read it. I’ve also previously read Lauren St. John’s books, and her stories about animals are so incredible.
- A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge- I chose this book as a Christmas Present after being drawn in by its ~breathtaking~ cover, and then read the blurb which sealed the deal on the very spot in the bookshop, mnyehehe. 😀
When a creature dies, its spirit can go looking for somewhere to hide.
Some people have space inside them, perfect for hiding.
I mean, do I need to explain any further from that quote? No, didn’t think so. Basically; me=EXCITED BOOKWORM.
That’s my current reading list, how about yours? I’d love to start up a bookish chat in the comments! Tell me one read you’re dying to read 🙂
