Game of Thrones Book Tag

I am obsessed with GOT and since the latest season is almost over I thought this would be a great tag to do. Have you guys been watching the latest season? I am loving it so much and the last episode had the best plot twist at the end but now I am so scared for everyone. I can’t believe there is only one more episode left. 😥 I just want it to never end.

Anyways I seen this tag in my news feed but I couldn’t remember who’s blog it was or who started it. Each question is from a Game of Thrones Family House and their motto.

HOUSE LANNISTER: HEAR ME ROAR – Name a book that you originally loved, but upon a re-read realized that it wasn’t so great after all

Nothing comes to mind and I don’t re-read many books. The ones I have re-read I enjoyed just as much as the first time. Continue reading “Game of Thrones Book Tag”

Summer Vacation TBR

Summer Vacation TBR

I am leaving for vacation tomorrow and I plan on bring a few books with me and thought I would share what books I will be taking with me. This is a bit repetitive since I did mention these books in my monthly TBR but I wanted to do it anyways.

I am going to be on  summer vacation for 11 days and am going to Vancouver and Calgary. I am so excited! 😀 I have been to both these cities many times before but I just love it there so much. I don’t know how much reading I will get done but I am bringing five books with me.

Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica                            

This is the latest book by Kubica and I recently finished reading all her previous books and think she is a very talented writer. So, I am very much looking forward to getting to this one while on vacation.

August TBR and Currently Reading

It is close to the middle of the month but I still would like to share my TBR for the month.

So far this month I have read two books and am currently half way through two others. I still have a few books left on my Summer TBR that I really want to get to. Plus I also want to get to five other books as well. Needless to say I have an ambitious TBR this month.

We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio

Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman

The Good Sister by Jamie Kain

Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn                                  

This is the Historical Fictionistas book club pick for August and I have been part of this group on Goodreads forever and never participated. But I noticed that this was the book they would be reading and I recently bought it and really want to read it soon, so seemed like the perfect time to participate in the book club.

Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica                                  

The latest release from Mary Kubica and I enjoy her books and am excited to get to it this month.

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova                       

I was highly anticipating this book and I still haven’t read it and it came out in April. I need to fix this and finally read it.

The Lost Girls by Heather Young                                                

My Grandma gave this book to me last year and I am going out to visit here this month and feel like I should read this before I leave to B.C.

What We Find by Robyn Carr                                            

Another book my Grandma gave to me that I also want to read before I leave on the 23rd.

It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han                 

I am half way through this book and I want to finish it today but not sure if I will have the time. It is an easy read so if I do get the time it won’t take long to finish.

Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica                       

I wanted to read this Kubica book before I started with her newest book and that way I will have read all her previous books. I’ve partly listened to this on audio and partly read it. So far I am loving it and look forward to the big reveal.
