Series I Want to Finish in 2019

The majority of my TBR pile are unfinished book series and one of my goals this year was to make a big dent in my TBR pile, to make room for more anticipated reads! A lot of these series I started reading last year and I’ve just fallen in love with them but others on this list, however, have sadly been forgotten about!

Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – I wish I’d started this series sooner as I’m obsessed with these characters and this storyline, Sabaa Tahir is very good at keeping readers on the edge of their seat throughout the entire novel! I have the second book ready and waiting on my shelf I just need to find time now to start reading it!

Eragon by Christopher Paolini – I love dragons and despite what people say I really enjoy the film. I know its completely different from the books but I want to start reading the books and seeing where the story goes after the events of the film. Plus I’m a little bit in love with Garrett Hedlund who plays Murtagh in the films and a lot of people praise his casting so I look forward to exploring more of his character.

Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I have to thank Emma Watson for recommending this series to me and although the world building and politics are quite intense it is a good fantasy read! I picked the series up again this summer and realized how much I’d missed this world and its characters!

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson – My favourite book of 2019 and I can’t wait to continue the series in the New Year! I’m in love with Sanderson writing so I’m looking forward to delving into more of his series, any recommendations would be wonderful!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber – What I loved about this book was the magic and mystery that dominated the storyline and I loved being transported into its wonderful world! The only reason I haven’t started reading this book is because I want it in paperback which isn’t released until late February!

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – I don’t remember loving the first book in this series but since then I’ve heard a lot of really good things about this series, which gives me the hope that it gets better! I really loved the concept and I think it was the writing style that I didn’t really click with nevertheless I want to give this series another go.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – I remember absolutely adoring these books and I can’t for the life of me figure out why I stopped reading them? I think this is going to be one of those series that I’ll just have to read again as I can only remember little bits and hopefully I’ll love them as much as I did the first time around.

BFF Book Tag

I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to do such a wonderful tag and we would like to thank and apologise for it’s lateness to Chantal at CKsReadingCorner! Being BFF ourselves and bookworms, this tag feels like it was certainly meant and created for us! So without further ado, lets begin

1. Setting the Example: A pair/group of book bff’s that you love?

A: It’s a classic answer but I love the ‘Golden Trio’ which is Harry, Ron and Hermione. Together they’ve encountered numerous adventures, all with their fair share of ups and downs but they’ve always stuck together.

E: I’m going to say Jace and Alec because it’s unpredictable and therefore always exciting… also they have wonderful conversations such as…
Alec Lightwood: ” I did not make pie for three reasons. One, because I do not have pie ingredients. Two, because I don’t actually know how to make a pie.”
Jace Herondale: “And three?”
Alec Lightwood: “Because I am not your bitch.”

2. Childhood Bestie: Which book character would you have like to grow up with? 

A: Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicals as she such as badass and brave character who at the same time is kind and caring. I would have loved to have grown up with her.

E: it’s not so much as a single character but I would have LOVED to have grown up in the Weasley family!

3. Frenemy: Which book character would bring out your competitive side?

A: Celaena Sardothian!

E: Ditto ^^

4. Fashion Guru: Who would be the bestie whose closet you’d want to raid or would you want to go on a shopping spree with?

A: Harper Jane Price, she sounds like she knows a lot about fashion and has a great sense of style.

E: Rosie Dunn

5. The Bad Influence: Which character would you want to commit a small act of rebellion with? (go skinny dipping, sneak into a movie, have a drag race with, etc.)

A: Tris Prior or Jace Wayland

E: Margo Roth Spiegelman

6. Blood Brothers: Which character would you want to be your surrogate big brother/sister? (You can do both if you want)

A: Feyre from ‘A Court Of Thorns and Roses’ because she cares so much for her sisters even thought they treat her like dirt.

E: I think Jace Wayland would be a wicked big brother!

7. Mother Hen: Which character would you want to be by your side when you’re having a bad day to cheer you up?

A: America Singer. In ‘The Heir’ she certainly plays the role of a mother really well but I also think her as a young adult she is still a kind and caring person who would know how to cheer someone up.

E: Molly Weasley

8. The Counselor: Which character would you go to for relationship advice (or) confide a secret to?

A: Eowyn from ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ trilogy as I feel like she would be really good a keeping a secret and understand it’s importance as a secret.

E: Cinna

9. More than friends: Who would be your book bf/ gf (if you like both genders you can choose one of each, but only one choice per gender!)

A: Chaol!!! He is strong but sweet. His relationship with Celina is so real and the way he acts towards her is so romantic!

E: Will Herondale (swoon!)

This was such a fun tag to do and thank you again to Chantal at CKsReadingCorner for not only nominating us but creating this tag! We nominate anyone who likes the sound of this tag and it’s questions.
