Top Ten Tuesday and a Request

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Todays’ s topic is Top Ten Most Anticipated Novels of 2015!
Okay, I really hate to admit this, but I have very little knowledge for what novels are coming out this year, so if you all could give me some recommendations in the comments that would be great.

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Okay, this sounds like and AWESOME book! Not only have I read so many rave reviews about it, I LOVE the cover and the premise. A retelling of Beauty and the Beast with a Faerie lord? YES PLEASE!

2. The Untitled Fourth Book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities Series by Shannon Messenger
I’ve read the first three in the series and I AM HOOKED. This is my favorite series, ever. Like seriously. THE BEST. And it left off on a cliffhanger.

Kind of. It’s hard to explain without ruining the whole series. But yeah. Definitely want to read that one.
3. The Sword Of Summer by Rick Riordan
RICK RIORDAN. Cue the freaking out of the fangirls and boys.

Yeah. Norse gods, trolls, giants, RICK RIORDAN. Enough said.
4. The Penderwicks in Spring
I love The Penderwicks series and I can’t wait for the next one. I’ve been reading them since I was younger, and I’m hooked.
Now comes the request part. These are all of the books I am looking forward to reading in 2015. I NEED MORE!
Please comment below with book recommendations for books that are coming out this year, and books that are already out. You can check my Book Review Requests to find out what I can and can’t read.
I REALLY need more books. My Goodreads goal is to read 101 books this year, but idealisticly, I would like to read ten new books a month. I’m a super quick reader. I read The Book Thief in one evening. In like three hours. But guess how many books I’ve read so far this year? ONE.

It’s incredibly sad. So please, just go to my Book Review Request page, see what I like to read, and comment here on what books you think I might enjoy.
Thank you so much, and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Katie’s fabulous what we can learn post.

Top Ten Tuesday: Goals and Resolutions for 2015

I am so excited to be linking up with The Broke and the Bookish (www.brokeandbookish.com) for the meme Top Ten Tuesdays! I’ve been wanting to do this meme for a while, and now is the perfect time, after I merged my two blogs. I love lists and everything bookish, so this is perfect meme for me. This week’s Top Ten is Goals and Resolutions for 2015.

The last year I made resolutions was when I was eleven. I resolved that I wouldn’t turn into a teenager (metaphorically speaking). Yeah… Here I am a few years later and I have the personality of a teenager. Also I resolved to finish my fantasy novel, which I gave up a month later So my background for goals isn’t very… solid. But this year is the year I will conquer my laziness when it comes to goals.

1. I’ll get up at 6:20 every morning and read or write.


I’m not really a morning person, but I’ll try to force my eyelids open long enough to get up and moving. The rest of my day is usually so hectic, so I need at least half and hour in the morning to get some of my reading and writing to-dos out of the way.

2. I’ll finish at least three novels this year.
I have a few novels in mind for this coming year. I’m finishing my dystopian, then I’m in the researching stage for my historical fiction novel, and in line after that is a steampunk novel. After that, who knows.

3. I’ll write at least five times a week, at least three hundred words a day.
Three hundred is a random number, but it’s right smack in the middle of how low I would actually go a day (100), and my target goal (500).

4. I’ll keep track of all the books I read.
I really want to know what books I read and what I think of them, so starting January first, I’ll be keeping track, adding a little summary and rating for each one.

5. I’ll read at least 100 new books this year. (With my cats’ help.)

And I can’t think of any others. But five is good right?
So what goals/resolutions do you have for 2015?
