Recommending My Three Favorite Series!



Hello book junkies! Today I will be recommending my three favorite series to you so that you can enjoy them just as much as I did! Let's dive into it like a pool! No, no, I am not funny. I cringe.

1. You guys know what this is. If you don't... welcome to our blog! Book lovers welcome! For that 1% that don't know what this is, it is the Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout. This series is about this girl named Katy and when she moves from Florida to West Virginia, her life is the opposite of normal. She finds out that her gorgeous neighbor Daemon and his sister Dee are ALIENS! A... ALIENS! THERE ARE FRIKEN ALIENS!!! So it is about her and Daemon and Dee's adventures! This book is full of LOL humor,  heart aching romance and kick butt action.

2. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. If you haven't heard of this series, where have you been? It might become a TV show, the movie came out like 2 years ago and the last book, City of Heavenly Fire came out in like May. See? Now you know about it! And if you haven't heard of Cassie, then you have probably heard of her. But I will tell you the Synopsis anyway! When a girl named Clary finds out that she is half angel half demon, a Shadowhunter, she has one mission. Save her mother. Her mother was kidnapped before the discovery. And Clary's main priority is to find her. This has humor, fantastic characters and a wonderful story.

3. And the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. You know this series. This is about a girl named Rose and her best friend Lissa are vampires. Rose is a dhampir, a guardian and Lissa is a Moroi, a royal. And they are fighting against the evil vampires called the Strigoi. I want you to know nothing about this so that is all!! This has sass, action and romance.

Alright! So that is it for my recommendation! I hope you enjoyed!
I love you all so much! Thanks and bye!

Currently Reading... Pure!


Hya! Today I will be doing a currently reading! Now this book is in a series so I can't give you that much information on it. This is Pure by Jennifer L Armentrout. This series is about this girl named Alex. When she gets dragged back to the Covenant, a secret facility of training half and pure bloods, her life is anything but normal. She keeps picking fights, dissing training and worst of all, can't even follow the first rule.

 RULE #1: RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN HALF'S AND PURE'S ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.

Hard to follow because she is crushing on the brutally hot Aiden, a badass Sentinel who trains her. But she's got bigger problems than that.

I am really enjoying this series so far. It is so kickass and so funny and fun. I LOL myself silly in Jen's books. I love her characters so much, they are so relatable and amazing. So far I would give this series a 3.5 out of 5 stars. But I can see some bigger numbers soon!!
Thanks for the views!! I love you all so so so so much!!

Social Media Book Tag!



Hello bookies! Today I will be doing the Social Media Book Tag! Let's just get right to it!

1) Twitter (@EandMFangirls), Find your favorite short book.
OMG SO MANY I CAN'T FREAKIN CHOOSE!! Fine, fine, I'll pick The Fault.... Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I have such a connection with this book it's so cute and funny and intelligent and RAINBOW ROWELL MAN!!!!!!!!! OMG.

2) Facebook (don't have one), A book the everyone pressured me into reading.
That book would be Cinder by Marissa Meyer. It was all over the internet and then I was watching one of my favorite youtubers (Sasha Alsberg) and she was all like "Omg this book is so amazing and everyone has to read it its sci-fi and..." I went out and bought it after that sci-fi part. So Sasha was the final straw.

3) Tumblr (@ booksteaanddoctorwho), Find a book you read before it was cool. 
I could do this all day.
Tfios 
Divergent
Hunger Games
The 5th Wave
The Mortal Instruments
Percy Jackson
And many more!
4) Myspace (RIP), For this I have to choose a book that I can't remember whether I liked it or not.
I'm sorry but the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I remember I thought I was so in love with it. Now I look back on it and Katniss was such a depressing character. I still do really love these books it's just that I can't really talk about it the way I did two years ago.

5) Instagram (@books.andtea), A book that was so beautiful, you just had to instagram it.
That would be Half - Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout. GORGEOUS

6) Youtube (Still not up yet), Find a book that you wish were a movie.
The Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout. This would be a great movie and TV show! 

7) Goodreads, (dont know the url...kinda new to gr) Find a book that I recommend to everyone.
Divergent for the beginning readers 
Anything Jennifer L Armentrout for deep readers. 

That is it for now! Thanks so much for all the views! I really do love all of you! Bye!
