US vs UK Covers

Book covers change all the time and in different countries there are different covers for the novels that we know and love here in America. I wanted to pick between US and UK covers and choose which one I like more.


Paper Towns by John Green: I am not against the American cover but I prefer the UK cover because I think it tells the story better.


The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith: Again I would pick the UK cover since it is more bright and colorful.


Divergent by Veronica Roth: I am very thorn since I like the US cover a lot but I am a big quote fan so I am going to have to go with the UK version. I just think it paints a better picture of the story.


Harry Potter and the Sorcerers/Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling: In this case, I would go with the US version. Although, I like the cover of the UK version it is too animated looking for me. I will not that I like the newer USA covers better than the original.


Delirium by Lauren Oliver: First, I want to note that I know that this isn’t the original US cover but it is newest one and I just love it. The UK cover is pretty but the new US version steals my heart.

There are 5 US vs UK Cover let me know which one you would choose in the comments below.

March TBR | 2017

It is time for me to do my TBR for the month again but this month is a little different since I only have 3 books on my March TBR. At the end of February things got kind of crazy so I was not able to read as much as I like making my
March reading take a hit.

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis: I am about five chapters in and I’ll know about the book is that it follows the perspective of three people, and the plot deals with a girl who knows how to kill someone.

Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist: I have wanted to read this book since I first heard about it. The story follows a blind boy that under goes an experimental surgery that will give him the chance to see for the first time. However, he discovers that his crush isn’t the normal definition of beauty. So far it is good and fast pace; I have pretty high hopes for the book at this point.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: Lastly, I intend to finish this book this month so that I can finally put it on my read list.

I know my TBR is short this month but things are still kind of crazy so I didn’t want to over whelm myself with too many books to read.

Reading Wrap-Up | January 2017

Now that’s its February it is time to do my January wrap up. I didn’t do two bad in the month of January since I finished reading 3 out of the 4 books on my tbr for the month. Below are my thoughts on the books that I read and my rating for them.

This is What Happiness Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith: I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. I liked the concept but I couldn’t get behind the writing. It was very slow pace and the love story wasn’t captivating. I know this is the first book in a series yet I not sure I’ll be picking up the second book.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. I love Perkins is writing which is why I was what I consider generous in its rating. Honestly, I didn’t like the man character in this book which is a bummer since I loved, the first book in the series, Anna and the French Kiss. I didn’t feel like the book was relatable at all and it just frustrated me to no end.

Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was actually a sad tale about a brother and sisters love for one another. It was a quick read and a good story but was nothing like Frozen.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: I started this book and are halfway through, but I had to put it down because I just wasn’t into the writing or story. I decided to get it on audio book and hope to finish it in February. So far I am not a fan of the story or main character but hopefully that will change.

There you have it my January book wrap-up. Let me know in the comments below if you want a review on any of these books. Also, don’t forget to follow the blog for more post.

2017 Reading Goals

Since it is a New Year which is normally a time for setting goals. I thought I’d share my book related resolutions with you guys.

Read 50 Books: My Goodreads challenge for the year is to read at least fifty books which I think is totally do able. I am not a fast reader so I didn’t want to set a goal of like 100 books and get overwhelmed.

Finish Series: I want to finish at least 2 book series I have started if not all of them. A lot of times I’ll start a series and won’t finish it because I’m not in the mood. I want actually finish most of the series that I have started this year.

Read Classics: I want to start reading more classic books. I love my YA novels but I want to read more traditional novels. Classic fairy tales, Jane Austin, Charles Dickens and such.

Start a Popular Series: I want to start and hopefully finish a popular book series. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit I’ve never read the entire Harry Potter series, Divergent, Hunger Games and tons more.

Read at Least One Non-Fiction Book: I’m not big into biographies but I want to set out of my comfort zone this year by reading some non-fiction books.

Those are all my reading goals for the year. I would love to know your goals reading or otherwise in the comments below.
