April TBR!

Hi guys, girls, and everyone in between! Happy Easter and April! I am doing things a little differently, so I can get out of my reading slump. So for this month I am only reading books that I am super hyped about that I have bought recently or a while ago. I will not be reading any review books.
So without further ado, here is my TBR for April.

I am currently taking a break from Mr. Ruins by Michael John Grist because I find myself not interested in the story. It's written really well so far, but the plot is not drawing me in to be honest. So I will pick it back up in May along with other review books.

I am currently reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I bought this book because Jesse, from jessethereader, talks basically non-stop about this book and about how good it is. Also my boyfriend and some other friends read it and thought it was really good.

I am also currently reading Bound by Duty by Stormy Smith for the Read With Ben book club. I am really excited to continue reading this book. If I really enjoy it, I am going to buy the second book in the series called Bound By Spells.

Then I'm definitely picking up The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. This is the first book in the chaos walking trilogy. I think it is a trilogy... Anyway this will be my TBR jar pick of the month.

Also in addition to that I am reading two books for my English class, which are Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and I Am the Messanger by Markus Zusak. 

This is where it is a little different from other months. I'm going to have a list below that are some books I really want to read, but I am going to pick whatever I want to read after I finish a book so there is no pressure. So they are in no particular order.

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a great reading month!

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...

2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …
