This has been a bit of a weird week for me. I didn’t really do much of anything because my anxiety was pretty high. I think I need to do something with my medication which will be fun /sarcasm. I’ve been feeling sad and weird for absolutely no reason. I haven’t wanted to leave my room. Sorry for sounding all whiny! I don’t meant to be. I’ll be okay 🙂

Anyway on a more positive note I’m so glad so many of you found my Comics & Graphics novel post helpful! It honestly made me so happy 😀 Oh and this happened!!! I feel so loved!! You guys are the best. Your support means so much to me! Even if it is just leaving a like. It really makes me feel like I’m a part of something ♥


I’ve also been listening to Halsey on repeat all week. I love her so much and her music has definitely helped me feel more relaxed. I’m especially in love with her stripped version of Colors. It’s so beautiful and everyone should listen to it!

Anyway, because of this strange mood combined with my football team losing I kind of went on a ebook haul. Whenever my mental illnesses are getting the best of me or I’m feeling down my brain is all

treat yo self parks and recreation angry mad mean

So that is what I did!

Covers = Goodreads.


So to my surprise I managed to get through 2/4 of my TBR, a single issue of an unplanned comic and made a start on my third book.

Books I Read

Zodiac Starforce #4 by Kevin Panetta Nimona by Noelle Stevenson The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Here’s an accurate portrayal of me whilst reading Nimona and The Dream Thieves:

excited great awesome screaming fandom 

I don’t know if I can write a proper review for The Dream Thieves anyway all you need to know is that I AM IN LOVE WITH RONAN LYNCH, but there’ll definitely be a review for Nimona and possibly for the trade paperback of Zodiac Starforce. I don’t want to talk about Nimona too much now but I can’t even express how much that graphic novel messed me up. I cried. I hugged my Kindle. I actually have a slight book hangover from it. I also got 11% into Blue Lily, Lily Blue  before the Read-A-Thon ended. At the time of writing this post I’ve finished 45% of it! I should definitely be all caught up in time for The Raven King.

Finishing The Dream Thieves and making a start on Blue Lily, Lily Blue was my main goal so I’m gonna go ahead and call my first ever Read-A-Thon a win!!!

Nightfall by Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski

Yep! Only ONE physical copy this week. AND MY FIRST TIME WINNING A GOODREADS GIVEAWAY!!!!! And it was for a thriller/horror, how perfect!! No seriously, I have been entering Goodreads giveaways since like 2010 and I never expected to win any so this was such a lovely surprise! Huge thanks to Allen & Unwin and Goodreads for sending me a copy of this book! I’m so excited to read it. Hopefully I can get to it soon. The concept sounds so awesome.


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson After the Woods by Kim Savage

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab Vicious by V.E. Schwab Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Everyone in the world seems to love Six of Crows so hopefully I will too. I read the first few chapters of Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here and I already know I’m going to LOVE it. I relate to Scarlett so much already. Even though I’m not really a contemporary reader I know how much everyone adores Morgan Matson so I figured I’d give Since You’ve Been Gone a go because 1) the cover and 2) it appeals to me the most. After the Woods seems like my kind of book and the cover is stunning. I also finally purchased some Victoria Schwab books because she’s loved by everyone and I want to experience it! Vicious was only 99 cents?? I WAS SO CONFUSED BUT SO GRATEFUL. I’m so excited to read Salt to the Sea and The Darkest Corners because I’ve heard so many great things about them!!

When will I get around to reading these?


The Chemical Garden Series by Lauren DeStefano Dead Jealous by Sharon Jones Wrecked by Maria Padian

Literally could not believe that Dead Jealous and The Chemical Garden series were free!!??! THE ENTIRE CHEMICAL GARDEN SERIES WAS FREE (Ahh just realised these are an Australia only thing!). Both of these have been on my TBR forever so like I wasn’t going to download them!? I received Wrecked from Netgalley and I’m really excited to get to it because Beth @ Betwixt These Pages loved it and everyone on Goodreads keeps saying how important it is!

  1. You did so good with the readathon! Yay! *throws confetti* And congrats to 1000 likes! There’s a lot of great books you got, I’ve only heard good things about Vicious, ADSOM, Six of Crows and Since You’ve Been Gone. 😀


  2. I keep debating about Nightfall! It sounds rather intriguing! I still need to read Six of Crows and I decided I want to keep The Darkest Corners and now must find time to read that one too! Just TOO many books and not enough time!! It’s terrible! LOL! I NEVER would’ve imagined a time like this when I was a teen and desperate for new reads!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂


    1. It does have some mixed reviews on Goodreads, but I notice a lot of Thrillers seem to so hopefully I’ll like it! I’ll definitely have a review up once I’ve read it 🙂 Ahhh, I know!! I wish there was more hours in the day, haha.


  3. Congrats on the read-a-thon! I also participated and read a couple of comics that were on my TBR. Isn’t The Dream Thieves amazing! I hated Ronan before that book, but now he’s probably my favorite character. LOL! Blue Lily is also really good. I can’t wait to get my hands on The Raven King. Have a great week!


    1. Yay! I loved The Dream Thieves so much. And same with Ronan, I didn’t hate him but he definitely wasn’t one of my favourites, but now I’m just so in love, haha. I’m so not ready for The Raven King, but at the same time I can’t wait. Thank you, you too ♥


  4. YOU HAD ME all excited over The Chemical Garden and FREE because I’ve read book 1 but haven’t finished the series yet and I went all bubbly and giddy and I just….

    Not free for me. BOO. The madness I was excited for is only madness for YOU and you suck.

    Actually you don’t, but my excitement bubble was burst into a billion teeny tiny pieces. So, thaaaaanks for that.

    Congrats on winning a goodreads thing! That’s awesome!


  5. I can’t wait to see your reviews for The Dream Thieves and Nimona, I am so glad you liked both of those books 😀
    Also some of the ones you brought these week are either favourites of mine or on my to-read list! Six of Crows and A Darker Shade of Magic are seriously amazing books so I really hope you love them. And Vicious is on my to-read list! I actually caved and brought a copy of the book last week so I’m hoping to start it soon as well!


    1. I loved them both so much, especially Nimona. I have never been affected by a graphic novel so badly in my life. When I got to the last page I was so upset. I never wanted it to end.

      I’ve heard so many great things about all of them! I can’t wait to start reading 😀

      1. I’m seriously hoping there’s gonna be another Nimona graphic novel. I’d settle for a prequel or a sequel. I loved Noelle Stevenson’s drawing style and I was the same I didn’t want it to end.
        I really hope you like them all then! 😀


  6. If you end up loving Six of Crows you HAVE TO buy a physical copy. IT IS GORGEOUS. Just saying lol

    Congrats!! I prolly wouldn’t had been able to even get through one book, let alone 2 or more. My attention span sucks & I’m awful slow, maybe between 40-50 pages an hour if it’s real good.

    Way to go!!


    1. Ahh is the hardback edition with the black trim pages? Every time I see it I’m legit heart-eyes everywhere. It’s gonna cost me like $25 though because Australia sucks. If I absolutely love the book I might have to get it though haha.

      That is normally always me. I’m surprised I managed to do it. Although I had half finished The Dream Thieves, so… Graphic novels are like my only exception when it comes to being able to stay focused.

      Thank you ♥

  7. I haven’t read Six of Crows or Darker Shade of Magic either so I feel better I’m not the only one 🙂 Sorry to hear your anxiety was high. I hope next week is better [it will be reading Wrecked, Salt to the Sea and The Darkest Corners 🙂 ]thanks for sharing the freebies!


  8. I also have anxiety (GAD) so I can totally understand what you’re going through. :/ I hope you’re able to get things evened out soon! It’s exhausting being anxious all the time! I hope you enjoy your new books though! I’m the same way about buying things to make myself feel better! 😛

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!


  9. Congratulations on receiving 1000 likes, you deserve it!

    I absolutely love listening to Halsey. Her music is so beautiful and incredibly touching. I think my favourite songs by her would have to be Gasoline and Castle… but at the same time I really like her entire album, haha.

    You’ve also picked up some pretty awesome ebooks! I haven’t read Six of Crows yet, but it looks beyond incredible! And I’ve heard so many amazing things about it. Happy reading!


  10. I really wanna read The Raven Cycle! It seems like the perfect series for me. Everything about it screams YOU’RE GONNA LOVE ME!
    I’ve also wanted to pick up some V. E. Schwab for such a long time!


  11. Sorry to hear about the anxiety, but congratulations on those 1,000 likes–huge milestone! I didn’t participate in this round of Dewey, but glad to see you did well. Three books is amazing. You also got TONS of eBooks! A few that are on my TBR are ADSOM, Six of Crows, and Vicious :). Happy reading!

    Thanks for stopping by Princessica of Books!
