DISCUSSION: Book Series That Should be Longer

I’m sure everyone here has had the experience of finishing a book series and still wanting more. Even if the ending is satisfying, it’s hard to let that world go! However, sometimes, the ending just isn’t satisfying at all and you know that there is so much more room in that world for more stories. The series I’m listing here are ones where the ending didn’t satisfy me, and I know there is realistically room for more. Of course, I may want 80 more Bloodlines books, but I know that’s just not realistic and I was satisfied with the ending. These series left me hanging and desperate for more books that sadly aren’t coming:

The Goodreads Book Tag

I absolutely love Goodreads, so I thought it was finally time for me to do this tag! I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I’ve seen it on so many people’s blogs recently (such as lifeofaliterarynerd and yadaily) so definitely go check out their posts as well. You can find me on Goodreads here & please feel free to add me! I love seeing everyone’s reading updates!


What was the last book you marked as read?

28962906

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerry Maniscalco was my most recent read! It’s been a while since I’ve read a mystery novel and this one was everything I wanted it to be and more. I was hesitant to pick it up because of James Patterson’s name on the cover (I’m not a huge fan of his) but thankfully I listened to everyone raving about it and I gave it a shot. I really loved this one!

A+ on the test: A book or character that makes you smile?

10576365

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken never fails to make me smile, I love this book so very much! I have an ebook edition on my phone that I open up and re-read my favorite scenes when I need a pick-me-up or when I’m just stuck somewhere and bored. The characters and road trip vibe are just so great, and this book holds such a special place in my heart.

The Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hi everyone! I apologize for my sporadic activity over the past week or so, I recently started working full time and am taking two summer classes on top of that but I’m trying my best to keep on top of this blog. I wasn’t tagged, but I saw lifeofaliterarynerd had done this recently and thought it looked fun!

Greed: What are you most expensive and inexpensive books?

None of my books are really fancy editions or anything, so none of them really stand out price-wise. However, sometimes a book I’ve been wanting to read will go on sale in ebook format for $2-3 but I’ll wait to buy it in physical format for more money because I prefer reading that way – oops! As for my most inexpensive book, I bought my hardcover copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in perfect condition at a flea market for $2. Score! I still have the price tag on it because I’m so proud that I found it for so cheap.

The 2017 Mid-year Freak Out Book Tag

I can’t believe it’s June and that we are already almost halfway through 2017! This year has flown by so far! So many great books have been released, and there are even more to come in the second half of the year.

I wasn’t tagged, but I saw this tag on ThriceRead‘s blog and thought it would be fun to complete! Also, I am currently four books behind on my Goodreads goal, so I thought the name was very fitting… I’m going to tag Heather @ bookstrustandpixiedust and Ashna @ storiesandsnaps!

Without further ado, here is my 2017 Mid-year Freak Out Book Tag:

Top 5: Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Releases!

Summer always seems to bring a bit of a lull in publishing (in my opinion). In the Spring and Fall, it seems like there are new books that I NEED to read out almost every week, but in the summer, there are usually one or two the whole season and that’s about it. However, this summer seems a bit more promising in terms of releases that interest me! Without further ado, here are the 5 summer releases that I’m most anticipating!

TAG GAME: Book Gods of Olympus

Hey there! If you don’t know, my name’s Sara! I saw this tag game going around mostly on Booktube a while back, and I thought it would be fun to try out. Since my blog is fairly new, I thought this tag had a nice variety of questions so that it could also function as something as an introductory post to my reading tastes! I’ve been posting older reviews on here before now for archival purposes, and I’ll be posting a few more but after that everything will be current! I’m also still trying to figure out a schedule for posting on this blog, so stayed tuned for that + I apologize if my posting is a bit erratic at first as I get into the swing of things!

I’ve searched high and low for the creator of this tag but I think the video’s been taken down. Please let me know if anyone knows who it is though!

Okay, here we go!

ZEUS: Favorite Fictional leader

cinder_official_book_cover_by_marissa_meyer

This one’s easy for me – Linh Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! She truly cared about the people she was leading and stepped up even when she didn’t want to. She became confident and strong after dealing with a lifetime of rejection and neglect, and stepped up to the plate when Earth and Luna needed her most. Cinder is such a badass who really cares about her people, and she’s definitely one of my favorite fictional leaders.
