Books I'm Iffy About Picking Up:

So one of the blogs that I follow did this the other week and I've decided to do one as well. Her blog is GoingThroughBooks. Check her out for some awesome content!

There are quite a few books that I'm iffy about picking up. I don't know if it's because I'm scared that the hype is too much or not enough hype.

Maybe you guys can help me decide if I will pick these books up in the future!

Ways I Pay For Books:

As we all know, buying books can get very expensive. I don't know about you guys, but I don't always have the money to purchase books. So, I do some online stuff to make some extra spending cash.

I'm going to share with you guys what I do to earn extra cash to buy books.

1. VeryDice
VeryDice is an app I've been using for a little while now. I've redeemed three physical books off the app so far. You get free spins daily and when you spin, you get tickets. With the tickets, you can purchase so many items. This app is 100% free unless you want to buy spins. You can also do other things to get spins.

If you decide to download this app, please use my code. It'll get you 30 free spins and I will also get free spins! CODE: 417921

2. Branded Surveys
This one is pretty easy. All I do is answer the daily poll and watch videos for points. This particular website can send the money straight to PayPal. You can do many things to earn points off this site. You can do what I do. While I'm reading, I just have videos playing in the background. Think of it as getting paid while you read!


3. InboxDollars
For InboxDollars, I do basically the same thing that I do with BrandedSurveys. I've been doing InboxDollars for quite some time now and have made around $240. You get gift cards through this site which is kind of meh, but it's still free books!

Books I Bought Because Of The Hype:

So as apart of the bookish community, we all know that there is a lot of hype surrounding certain books. As someone who constantly is on the look out for new books to read, I'm always scrolling through social media to find my new buy. So, naturally, there are books that I have that I probably wouldn't have bought because of the hype.

So let's jump right into the books that I purchased because of the hype.

Throne Of Glass
Book Two


Published September 2nd 2014 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens



An assassin's loyalties are always in doubt but her heart never wavers.

Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become the King's Champion. But she is far from loyal to the crown. Though she hides her secret vigilantly, her deadly charade becomes difficult when she realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. No one is above questioning her allegiance—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then, one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie ... and whom she is willing to fight for.

Review: Crown Of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. 4.5/Stars. Please don't read ahead if you haven't read this book.

I feel like as these books go on, they're going to get better and better. I feel like Crown of Midnight was a lot better than Throne of Glass. When I read ToG, I honestly couldn't tell whether or not I would enjoy this series. Reading this book, I know I'm going to love it. Just not as much as ACOTAR.

I love that magic is becoming more of a thing in this book. I can't wait to see what magic can bring to this series.

I'm also falling in love with Chaol. I though I wanted Celaena with Dorian. But I'm now thinking that Chaol is the better choice. Hopefully, she doesn't switch between the two. I can't stand the love triangle trope. I just can't. I just really like that the romance is finally blossoming in this book. I really thought these books were going to be heavy in the romance genre seeing as a lot of people listed it as romance on Goodreads.

Can we also talk about the rebellion? I love that people are plotting against the bad government. I love it when people take a stand. I just felt really bummed when Nehemia was killed. She was one of my favorite characters and I feel like she and Celaena would have been great leaders together in this rebellion movement.

I really love the fact that Celaena is going against the king in her own way. I was going to end up really disliking her if she was going to kill people for the man that killed her family. Thank you Celaena for being so bad ass.

And the ending. OMG THE ENDING. I didn't think there was actually going to be Fae in this series, just the mention of them. And the fact that Celaena is actually Aelin and the lost Queen of Terrasen. I almost had a heart attack just reading the last few paragraphs.

I am beyond excited to see where this story goes and what AELIN does in Wendyln. I'm going to have to get used to calling her Aelin now >.<
