Bookshelf tour (April 27th 2018)

Hello there and welcome to a tour of my bookshelf!

I obviously won’t post pictures of these books (there are MANY so I don’t want to crash the site) but I will list them below. I have 2 bookshelves and they are both filled with books that I LOVED WITH ALL MY HEART (looks at Becky Albertalli’s books) and HATED (some books I dislike but I never gotten to the hate stage… not yet) also I AM NOT TELLING YOU WHICH ONES I READ/DIDN’T READ just letting you know right here right now before I move on. Also I am just going to write “____ series” with book series’s that are over 3 books long

*Ahem* And so without further ado…

THE BIG BOOKSHELF (mostly unread books/re-reads)

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi 

The most anticipated YA release of 2018 and I have it here in paperback!! YAY!

Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard 

A massive YA book series. I read only 30 pages of it before I put it down. I don’t know why I think it was that the writing was just getting to me? Anyway I will definitely read this soon!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 

I am eying this suspiciously. I KNOW HOW MUCH FANGIRLING LEIGH BARDUGO’S WORK CAN INFLICT IN ME so I need to be extra cautious. Every author is having a go at me this month and I honestly feel abused by all of these cliffhangers!!

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo 

Crooked Kingdom? More like definitely going to scream and cry in pain, eat cookies and cry while eating my ice-cream.

Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo 

Wonder Woman is a TV series I’ve grown up with. The original one with Linda Carter playing wonder woman where she spins around while this really loud music plays (wonder how she keeps her identity secret if music plays whenever she spins *insert thinking emoji here*) but I really hope Bardugo can work her magic and make me remember those good old Wonder Woman times with my family 🙂

Magic Ballerina Series by Darcy Bussell 

Yes I know this is a children’s book series but these books I HAVE GROWN UP WITH and I could not give them up and sell them on Gumtree!! I started reading them when I was 5 so basically 10 (almost 11) years!!

The Siren by Kiera Cass 

I read 3 of Cass’s books and they were heavy on the romance. I must admit romance is a pet peeve of mine in books. Seriously is it THAT hard to find a fantasy/sci-fi book WITHOUT ANY ROMANCE!?

The chocolate box girls/Cathy Cassidy’s novels by Cathy Cassidy

This was my favourite book series when I was 12-13. I seriously loved these books but never got through the whole series I think I ought to read it since my parents keep telling me to read at least 10 books before going to buy another one (I buy a book like every week so… obviously that hadn’t happened :P)

The School For Good and Evil series by Soman Chainani 

I only read book one. The library didn’t have book 2 and it took me years to get it!

The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare

I’m not going to throw this book series across the room right? THE UNIVERSE: HAHAHAHAHA yes you will

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Book one of the Dark Artifices. Hardcover. Signed by Cassandra Clare herself includes a short story with the Mortal Instruments Characters. Don’t ask for how much this cost because I think you’ll raise your eyebrows at $52.95.

Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

Hardcover. Stamped by Clare herself inside on a book sticker. There are no copies in Australia that are signed so I got this from overseas. Yet again for a million dollars but IT WAS SO WORTH IT!! It even has a new little short story at the back!!

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton 

Book club read of March 2018. I didn’t read it though because I was WAY too busy crying over Simon…

Matilda Saga by Jackie French

YEAH LOVE OZ YA!! She came to my school. I sat right in front of her in the picture (this was back in 2014 when I was Junior School Library Committee Representative) and I was holding this massive wombat. This was also when I was an adorable little kid who had no glasses and believed chocolate was good for you. I got 3 of the books signed and personalised: A Waltz for Matilda, The Girl from Snowy River and The Road to Gundagai!!

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 

I thought you couldn’t read YA when you were 11 and that was the age I was when I got super hyped for this book. I bought the movie without watching it in cinemas first. Worst decision I ever made!

Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club series by Alison Goodman 

Another LoveOzYA!! YES!!! I first heard about this book in either Girlfriend or Dolly magazine. (I actually don’t read this) but my sister showed me it and said “this is said to be the next Cassandra Clare!” OBVIOUSLY I had to buy it but I still need to read it 😛

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame 

Technically my sister’s book but she got sick of it 20 pages before finishing it and gave it to me in a very bad condition. -_-

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

My friend gave me it and I’m going to read it soon because we are learning about Hitler and WWII now in History!

Paper Towns by John Green 

Collectors edition. Got it with Looking for Alaska

Alice Miranda in Paris by Jacqueline Harvey 

This one is signed and personalised. Met Jacqueline Harvey in the flesh. She’s really lovely!

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand 

I LOVE CYNTHIA HAND’S WORK. MY LADY JANE MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD but I’m saving this book for Christmas. I have this whole Christmas book haul to read over the chilly season for Christmas vibes. It’s like collecting songs for a good Christmas spotify playlist 😛

Everless by Sara Holland 

Going to read this the book after the next book I am going to read. SUPER EXCITED!!

Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman 

Got this book signed and personalised. Met Amie Kaufman face to face. She’s SO BUBBLY! Like MAN SHE IS SUPER FRIENDLY AND ENERGETIC SHE IS MY SPIRIT HUMAN!

The Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

I met Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner at a book signing got this series signed and personalised. I asked them to sign my name Sylvs instead of my actual name: Sylvia (I don’t know why but I like my nickname more)

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Obviously signed and personalised

Spark by Brigid Kemmerer

I got this while reading Storm by Brigid Kemmerer and back then I used to think that the writing was small and that it would take me more than 4 weeks to read from the library (I WAS A VERY SLOW READER BACK THEN I PROMISE I IMPROVED!!!!) so I was originally planning on buying Storm from the bookstore. My mum said “Isn’t that book the one you are reading now??” so I just brought book 2. Very long and complicated story.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett 

My mum brought this for herself in 2011. She didn’t read it so she donated it to my own personal library. She says she will impress me one day because she will pick up a book and finish it. I waited 7 years. No progress.

Percy Jackson 1-2 by Rick Riordan 

I got this for Christmas in 2013 but I want to get all the books before I do anything. I’m waiting “until the time is right” I know a really dodgy answer but it’s high on my TBR.

Throne of Glass series (0.1-4) by Sarah J Maas 

I haven’t brought books 5 and 6 yet. Everyone is trying to cut down my book spending.

Banish by Nicola Marsh 

I go this back in 2012 when I was 10. If you read the blurb you’d know I DEFINITELY SHOULDN’T HAVE BROUGHT THIS BOOK WITH MY GRANDMA WHO EVEN THOUGH SHE KNOWS VERY LITTLE ENGLISH SHE KNEW ENOUGH TO PICK UP THE WORDS SUICIDE, ALCOHOLISM etc IN THE BLURB! I promised her I won’t read this until I am old enough so I’m waiting until I’m 16 or older to read it since it’s more new adult than young adult.

Neverland by Margot McGovern 

Met her on 24/4/2018 so basically this week! She’s super lovely I got a bookmark signed for me and a friend. I got my own book signed and a poster signed for that same friend. Also McGovern is an Australian author from Adelaide so YAY! LOCAL AUTHORS!!

The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

I’m going to go out there and say this right here right now. I had a MAJOR Twilight phase. Yes I was one of those kids who loved the whole vampire “I LOVE YOU BELLA SWAN I WANT TO BE WITH YOU FOREVER” yes I was *AHEM* a very romantic child. Luckily I read SO MANY MORE books with even more and better romance *ahem Becky Albertalli* I haven’t read Twilight since February 2016 Vampire Obsession era but I definitely know my thoughts and feelings DEFINITELY changed.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I LOVED the Lunar Chronicles (I’m borrowing it from the library. I’m still up to book 2 because SOMEONE didn’t return it!!) but I’m excited for Renegades!!

Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery 

Every family member is giving me this book as a present!!!

The Last Days of Us by Beck Nicolas 

Met her with Margot McGovern and got a book and bookmark signed!

Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige 

Read the whole Dorothy Must Die series (and then book 4 came out and it’s not in the library) but got this as a present from a friend. This is on my Christmas book binge list of 2018. So I’m saving this until December hopefully.

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins 

Christmas book binge of 2018. Not going to read until December.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell 

Brought this when I brought Simon from the bookstores.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell 

One of the greatest love stories of the 21st century <3

Bursting Bubbles by Dyan Sheldon 

Haven’t heard much on this book. Mixed reviews on Goodreads but I want to see for myself. I don’t know I get anxious when I am reading a book and I don’t know what it’s about.

Pretty Little Liars 

I am waiting for school to start so I can binge read it!!

Lifeblood by Gena Showalter 

I was 50 pages in before I said DNF there was way too much romance it sickened me and it didn’t help that she was making out with a ship I did not approve of!! COME ON ARCHER AND TEN FOREVER!!!!

The White Rabbit Chronicles 2-1 book 1 by Gena Showalter 

I’m scared this series would turn out like Firstlife and that’s what’s scaring me!

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg 

I want to see if Zoella’s book is worth the hype!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor 

Can’t wait for Muse of Nightmares but I am going to finish the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series first!

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey 

Going to re-read The 5th Wave I reckon!!

The Shelf of Feels and Fangirling (wow this should actually be a book title) (Basically all the series’s that I finished

The Illuminae files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 

TOO MANY FEELS! I got this signed and personalised. I met both authors and am going to meet Jay Kristoff again next month for the Adelaide signing of Lifel1k3!!

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven 

Met Jennifer Niven with a friend of mine got her book signed and we spent a good 10-20 minutes with her and Krystal Sutherland.

The A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas

Too MANY FEELS… No words. I used to be THE BIGGEST Tamlin and Feyre shipper and then Maas had to do THAT! URGH

Hunted by Meagan Spooner 

Signed, personalised and loved to bits

Grisha Trilogy/Grishaverse by Leigh Bardugo 

Is Alina and Nikolai a thing? CAN THEY BE PLEASE!!?!?!

Simon vs the Homosapiens agenda by THE QUEEN Becky Albertalli

It hurts to even write this especially since I finished Leah on the Offbeat. BUT THIS WAS TOO GOOD!!!

Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED. DON’T YOU EVEN DARE!!

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black 

First Holly Black book and book club read of February 2018.

The Selection books 1-3 by Kiera Cass

Haven’t read the other 2 books: The Heir and the Crown. I loved the first book and then the series went downhill for me.

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare 

SIMON WAS THE SMOL BEAN (what is up with me and Simon’s?) CLACE WAS THE HOTTEST ROMANCE EVER MALEC WAS LIFE (wait hang on this should all be in present tense) BUT OH MAN! IT WAS TOO BEAUTIFUL!!

Losers Bracket by Chris Crutcher 

Mixed feelings but this was my second ARC book that I ever received. ARC is a pre-released copy of a book.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber 

OMG… JUST HOW DO YOU LIVE THROUGH THAT. Should probably re-read before Legendary comes out.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 

I honestly don’t think that John Green will ever be a favourite of mine. I don’t know why but his books never made me “WOW” or cry that much.

Looking for Alaska by John Green 

Collector’s edition!! and Hardcover!

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows

Too funny and too good

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

A Classic that I read back in year 9. We had to get this off our book list but I got my copy off of Gumtree 😛

Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta 

LoveOzYa again! I LOVED THIS AND WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!!!!

Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr 

Loved book one but the rest of the series I didn’t enjoy as much…

Always Forever Maybe by Anica Mrose Rissi 

Finished it this week actually. My third ARC!!! <3

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series by Ransom Riggs 

I loved this book series so much. I don’t remember much of books 2-3 though.

Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick 

I loved this book. I loved Hugo Cabret and I hope I’d like The Marvels just as much! The Marvels was actually on the Inky Awards list back in 2016 I remember!

Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Interesting concept. Too much romance.

Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland 

Met the author got this book signed in pink texta

A semi-definite list of worst nightmares by Krystal Sutherland 

I was THIS close to getting an ARC of it!! A person in the seat next to me got it instead!

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon 

I loved this book until the ending. JUST WHY NICOLA YOON JUST WHY!!

Currently Reading

And that all leaves me to the book I am reading now: The Scattering by Kimberley McCreight. It’s a thriller and I didn’t like the first book that much but I guess it wasn’t that bad because I brought the sequel and am reading it now.

Anyway. I hope you enjoyed that little bookshelf tour! I’ll be doing this again and seeing how much this bookshelf has changed.

OMG. Those hardcover signed Cassandra Clare books. GOALS!! I want them so badly! You're so lucky to have so many signed books. I don't have any but J Kristoff comes to Perth for his LifeLik3 tour and I am going to get my illuminae series signed. And I am so glad that someone else likes Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children! I know that they are middle grade ish but THEY ARE SOOOO GOOD!

5th May, 18

Maybe I should do something like this. Although unfortunately I have nowhere near as many books as you!

And I only have 1 series that's signed. But it IS the whole series. Totally don't have a relative who knows the author's mother-in-law......

5th May, 18
sylvs

Lol my parents tell me to stop buying books. I think I have a serious book buying problem to the point where I have WAY too many on my TBR

5th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

At least it's books rather than chocolate or something.

You're so lucky to have the money to buy books so often!

I have a long TBR list, but I generally borrow books from the library. So yeah....

5th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Most of the books are brought with STACKS of 10 cents (mind you that a normal book costs $20 maybe $23 in hardcover) so as you can imagine it was very fun for the person at the counter.

5th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Haha lol.

I'm sure they enjoy it so much when they see you come in.

5th May, 18

Omg tell me about it. I think I'd die in anticipation!

7th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah same! And apparently there's a TV show adaption of ToG coming out, called Queen of Shadows (so it isn't thought to be GoT related).

It's some "Hulu" thing or something though. Idk

7th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

I'm SUPER DOOPER excited!!! That's it. I'm binge reading the whole series!

8th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

YAY!
Let me know what you think and which is your favourite!

Mine would either be Queen of Shadows or Empire of Storms

8th May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

I'm up to Crown of Midnight at the moment :) The other books were amazing though!

Celaena is epic!

9th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

IKR!
She is one of the best heroines, up there with Hermione and Annabeth and those girl-heroes!

10th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Omg yes! Celaena is so different compared to other YA assassins. For starters she loves herself and loves clothing and jewels yet she isn't scared to get her hands dirty.

10th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah I know. She has her flaws. One is not being able to admit them. ; P
She's amazing!
That's why I love Feyre too!

10th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Ooh! Yes! Feyre is amazing too. I used to be THE BIGGEST SHIPPER of Feysand and then book 2 happened and my hopes and dreams were crushed. I really hope my ships will not be wrecked and scorched to ashes in Throne of Glass!!

10th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Haha lol. Have you finished Court of Mist and Fury? Also have you read Court of Wings and Ruin?
Also, I won't spoil ToG for you, but it had me attempting to avoid pegging the book at multiple instances.

11th May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

ACOWAR was my very first book I reviewed *remembers memory fondly* I didn't post the review on InsideADog because it had too many spoilers ;P

11th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

So you've finished the series?
YAY!!!
I LOVE Mor! And Amren! And basically the whole Court of Dreams!

12th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Agreed I loved all of the characters when I was reading it. I didn't really like ACOFAS as much as the other books though but I must say I loved seeing all the characters again and to see Velaris!

12th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

I haven't read ACOFAS yet, but hoping to soon.
Looking forward to seeing what SJM delivers

12th May, 18

It was REALLY slow. You can have a look at my book review if you want for more thoughts on it :)

12th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

Ok cool.
Thanks.
Was it good apart from that though?

13th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

It was alright but I still preferred the other books more

13th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Ok. That means I can still sort of look forward to it. I think.

14th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Sarah J Maas's writing is always amazing how does she even do it?

14th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

I have no idea. She's amazing. It's like J.K Rowling or Rick Riordan.

15th May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

Agreed. She is AMAZING!

15th May, 18

Which makes her special to me too

15th May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

Aww my friends introduced me to Throne of Glass it was a major thing for a while at my school. ALL of my friends were reading it (and giving me slight spoilers thinking I read it) and so I knew that I needed to get in on the book series!

15th May, 18

In reply to sylvs

Yeah.
Friends are great like that.

17th May, 18

Yep. They sure are.
Sorry I haven't answered recently. My internet was down and this website doesn't work at school.

How's life?

21st May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

Lol all good I totally understand the bad internet problem. I have the worst internet ever at home.

22nd May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah. Normally mine is great, but it was really bad recently.

I hate the bad internet. Is yours "broken" or does it just suck?

22nd May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

It honestly just sucks. It is the worst. Everyone complains about it at school ;P

22nd May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah. : )

Our internet is so bad at school, that sometimes we can't get on to do our work. Sometimes it doesn't work for the teachers either.

So nervous though. I have two exams tomorrow and I feel like I'm going to fail them. I know I'm not. But I feel so unprepared. Especially for my Science one, which is first up. I just have a really bad Science teacher.

22nd May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

We have a student teacher for physics. She's pretty good but it's just that I don't find acceleration, speed and velocity very interesting. I cannot help the fact that my mind drifts off to books and fairytale places ;P

22nd May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yep. ; )
We have an actual teacher. But he doesn't know how to get us engaged and interested.

23rd May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

It's alright at school but I just personally don't find it interesting

23rd May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah. It really depends.
My electives are great though.

23rd May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

I do digital publishing, english, french, essential maths, science, history, art, PE and personal learning plan. But I do VET courses after school and self-teach myself another language

24th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Wow....

We only have 3 electives, due to me being in yr9.

I learnt French last year though.

I do Agriculture, Heroes and Villains (elective history), and International Studies which is basically Society and Culture for juniors.

24th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Ooh! I'm going to do French until year 12 as well as english. I'm dropping the subjects that require analysing skill like science or maths

25th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Haha lol.

French is fun. I found it reasonably easy.

You're in year 11 then?

I'm hoping to do "Primary Industries" which is Agriculture, Legal Studies, maybe food tech. And I'm not sure what else.

26th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

I'm in year 10. I know I'm so very old *cries* but wait until you learn about passe compose and imperfect tense it will kill you I'm not kidding. I used to be straight A+'s for french until THAT came along.

26th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

You're only like a year older than me. (I'll be 15 soon).

Idk if I'll do French in snr years. I don't do it atm, since it's not an elective I chose

26th May, 18
sylvs

In reply to booksforlife

Ahhh yes I want to do french but it's really difficult now. *cries* and also I am horrible at pronouncing things in other languages I guess I'm better at writing things down ;P

26th May, 18
booksforlife

In reply to sylvs

Yeah, learning languages is fun but extremely frustrating.

And your stories prove you're great at that. : P

27th May, 18

In reply to booksforlife

Wait you read my stories!! *shy grinning*

27th May, 18

The ones I've found yep.

You're an amazing author!

Planning on going back over them when I get the chance. : )

OMG Thanks so much!!! Do you have any stories on IAD? I might read it soon!!

You're welcome. It's true though.

I have some part stories, that you commented on, and one or two full ones, on my blog.

Putting the next one up soon hopefully.

In reply to sylvs

Thanks.

No I haven't. Most of the ones I hear about are themed, and I prefer to let my imagination do all the work. Plus, I'm not that good! I've seen some that I was just like "WHAT THE HECK HOW?!"

Me, I think I'm a bad writer but apparently not according to friends and family (I don't write much nowadays but I REALLY NEED TO GET BACK INTO IT!!!) Anyway, I think that you are SUPER DOOPER talented as a writer (I read your work so trust me when I say it) and if you see a competition you should 10000000% enter/consider it (it's a really REALLY rewarding feeling afterwards!) Also if you need writing help I'm always here to help :D

You're an amazing writer!
You should write more!

Maybe we could do one together? That'd be fun!

Thanks for the compliments, I just let my imagination do the work and for my stories set in other countries, I do some research and it's just something I love to do.

I might consider doing one, but a lot that are online and stuff (eg. Wattpad ones), are only for America. It's really annoying.

YAS!!! We definitely should write something together! I also love researching and wanderlusting over places too (and imagining what it's like to live there as well) We are going to blow everyone's minds on the IAD website!!!
