My Favorite Books of 2017

Hey! Welcome to what will most likely be my last post of the year on ACB.

So, I’m going through my reader today, and lo and behold! Everyone and their dog is doing a “Favorites of 2017”. My first thought was “Silly peoples, it’s still the middle of the year!” My second thought was “Holly crap, it’s December?!” So now I am flailing and screaming while trying to remember all the awesome books I read this year. I might also add some books I bought recently at the bottom. K, lets do this!

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

(None of these are in order, I’m writing them as they come to me.)

LOVE this series! I’ve read the first and second and am working on the third. But the first is my favorite so far.

Physik by Angie Sage

This is another favorite series. It makes me mad that no ones heard of it .(

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I’m actually afraid to read the other two books. Four and Tris are together and I love their relationship. I don’t want it to die!

Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz

This is the book that made me fall in love with Yassen. I really wish there was more to his story. BUT! Never Say Die is finally here and all I need to do is save up.

Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz

This is probably my favorite book of 2017. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes or Horowitz.

Curse of the Bane by Joseph Delaney

A few of you might have read the review I did on Revenge of the Witch. If you do, then you know I wasn’t all that impressed with Delaney. But this book was GREAT! It was much better than the first.

There you have it. Those are my favorite books of 2017. Now for the books I bought-

Arthur Conan Doyle: A Life in Letters by John Lellenberg, Daniel Stashower, & Charles Foley

Warriors: Thunder and Shadows and Fading Echoes by Erin Hunter

My Gal Sunday Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark

I. Q: Independence Hall by Roland Smith

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

And thats all, for now at least.

Love ya!



July 2017 Book Haul!!!!


Ok, calm down! *Deep breathe*

A couple weeks ago I bought some books from ThriftBooks, like, a lot. And on Monday they finally came in! Before that I bought more than a dozen books at the thrift store in town! So, July has been a really good month for me, bookwise. Here’s all the books I’ve gotten-

The Trift Store Haul-

The Redwall series by Brian Jacques (hopefully in order)-

  1. Lord Brocktree
  2. The Legend of Luke
  3. The Outcast of Redwall
  4. Mariel of Redwall
  5. Redwall
  6. Mattimeo
  7. Pearls of Lutra
  8. The Long Patrol
  9. Marlfox
  10. Triss
  11. Loamhedge
  12. Rakkety Tam
  13. High Rhulain

and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.

ThriftBooks haul-

  1. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
  2. The Sorcerer of the North by John Flanagan
  3. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
  4. House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz
  5. Crocodile Tears by Anthony Horowitz
  6. Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz

I would have gotten The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer, but it was too exspensive. I’ll just have to wait to complete the Artemis Fowl books. Meanwhile, Alex Rider is getting a new book in October. I also wanted to get The Lunar Chronicles, but they were way more than I could afford. As for Mockingjay, I can’t read it until I get Catching Fire.

Oh, I almost forgot! I won an ebook of The Songweaver’s Vow by Laura VanArendonk Baugh and a signed paper back copy of Elle Burton and the Reflective Portals by Peggy M. McAloon & Anneka Rogers. Elle Burton also came with a book mark. I am somewhere in chapter 8 of the ebook, and haven’t started the paper back. I have so much going on right now. Pumpkin has pink eye and I’m having trouble eating without throwing up. I’m not sick, I just have a poor diet and a weak will when it comes to food that tastes good. Plus I’m still working on The Oldest Waterpark EVER!!!, so I guess you could say I’m very busy.

And my dad ordered four more books by Raymond Feist. He basically turned fangirl and said I had to read them. Now I know how Xander feels. *Sigh* Well, I have to go get started on the dishes *cue eyeroll* (hmmm, I should probably clean the ceiling…)
