We’re back! Sort of. I’m not making any secret out of it anymore: Life is hectic and busy, so my blog is taking a huge step back right now. I literally have nothing scheduled for this month, or the next. Not one post, people! And I’m not even bothered by it – that’s how busy I am right now. From house-hunting, to more house-hunting and even more house-hunting, there’s barely any time left to blog.
When I do have some free time, I’d rather be reading, hah! So, of course, I do have a whole load of drafts ready to edit and finish, reviews that are waiting for its munches and stuff like that but.. I simply don’t have the time – yet. I’ll be back eventually though!
Now on to the actual purpose of this post, right? I skipped quite a few prompts – either by really skipping them or by doing my own thing. This time, I’m simply going back to last week when I skipped it because.. busy..?
Today’s topic is supposed to be “Books You’d Mash Together” and I am not a fun of mash – seriously, I don’t like mash – so I’m going with last week’s “Popular Books That Lived Up To The Hype“!
I’m starting with these four. Definitely some of my favorite contemporaries and, although some of them might not have gotten ridiculous hype all over.. Let’s just say I’m counting hype among my reading / blogging friends as well! I know there are some huge fans of Starfish and Autoboyography, which made me curious to pick them up. Ended up loving them, so they definitely deserve a spot in this post!
Warcross, Children of Blood and Bone and The Cruel Prince are three novels close to my heart. I honestly love all three of them. The concept of Warcross, the incorporation of present day issues in Children of Blood and Bone and the fae in The Cruel Prince. Different reasons, but tons of love! Another thing they have in common is how I read them so close near their publishing date – which is a miracle in itself, as you might know…
These are three books that surprised me. They’ve been hyped for ages and I hadn’t read them yet until last year / this year so.. you could say I was a bit afraid of them disappointing me. That so did not happen though. I love these books! Queen of Shadows is easily my favorite when it comes to the Throne of Glass-series, by the way. And A Court of Mist and Fury because paint and soup, doh!
All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!
What are some of your hyped favorites? Or maybe a favorite deserving of way more hype? And for those of you having read the Throne of Glass-books, which one is your favorite?!
