LifeAimee here!

Ah, I miss everyone. I know, I know. How can I miss you when I’ve actually been posting, commenting (a bit) and Twittering? But really, people, I haven’t talked to y’all in ages! How are you?? Is life treating you well?? What awesome books have you been reading?? TELL ME EVERYTHING.

And yes, I’ve been drowning in school. Mostly just school, and a bit of schoolwork. It’s so draining to just wake up at five thirty in the morning and using my brain all day. When I get home, I just plop on the bed and stay there, procrastinating.

On the bright side, I got A LOT of books since my last bookhaul in August, so that’s exciting. Scroll down below to check them out!

#Obsessedcurrent obsessions

I’ve been obsessively admiring people’s gorgeous Instagram feeds. I absolutely adore @xCrini’s and @abookishloveaffair’s bookish gorgeousness, as well as @michellephan’s lovely blue photos.

I’ve also returned to my habit of rereading bits of Kiss the Sky and Fuel the Fire by Krista and Becca Ritchie before going to bed. Occasionally, I add in a daydream about Anna-Marie McLemore’s The Weight of Feathers, a recent favorite!

#BookHaulthis week’s stack of pretties (links lead to Goodreads)


23466626 23299513 22065067 21421609
Dreamology | The Shadow Queen | Sword and Verse | Assassin’s Heart

LOOK AT ALL THESE BEAUTIES. I’m particularly interested in the high fantasies (Sword and Verse, Assassin’s Heart) because duh, y’all know high fantasy’s my forte. The Shadow Queen‘s also really up my alley since it’s a retelling (of Snow White).

22811780 24657660 22428707 21979832
The Mystery of Hollow Places | Reign of Shadows | The Great Hunt | The Girl from Everywhere

Super sweet author Mackenzi Lee recommended The Mystery of Hollow Places to me, so I requested it! I’ve read two Sophie Jordan books and one Wendy Higgins book and sort of disliked them all. But I’m known for always giving second chances, so I requested Reign of Shadows and The Great Hunt! As for The Girl From Everywhere… If you haven’t heard of it yet, you might as well be living under a rock.

A Study in Charlotte | Burning Glass | Cam Girl | Lumière

Burning Glass is another high fantasy–hurrah! Cam Girl will be my first Leah Raeder book, and I’m stoked to finally get a taste of her writing. And if I’m being honest, I pretty much picked up Lumière for the pretty cover. It does sound pretty intriguing, though.

23480844 20734002 Signs Point to Yes 23845997
FirstsThe Weight of Feathers | Signs Point to Yes | Blood and Salt

Firsts sounds… *coughs* interesting. I already read The Weight of Feathers and it was BRILLIANT. Blog tour review, interview and giveaway will be up on the 17th, so stay tuned! I loved Sandy Hall’s A Little Something Different, so I went ahead and signed up for the blog tour for Signs Point to Yes! Blood and Salt looks SO kick-ass and romantic–miiiine.

24266809 22359983 24517738 25244538
An Infinite Number of Parallel Universes | Riot of Storm and Smoke | Never Never | Strange Girl

I typically don’t accept many review requests, but An Infinite Number of Parallel Universes definitely caught my attention. And I totally love Jennifer Ellision, so when she offered up Riot of Storm and Smoke, I went ahead and took it! Never Never sounds creepy and mysterious… *cackles evilly*

Many hugs to HarperCollins for the Edelweiss approvals, and to St. Martin’s Press, Spencer Hill Press, Atria Books, MacMillan (Xpresso Book Tours), Penguin Teen and Skyscape for the NetGalley eARCs! And a bajillion thanks to Randy Ribay and Jennifer Ellision for offering up eARCs of their lovely-sounding books!

Just Finished: Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales (2 stars)
Objectively, this book had realistic characterization, but a not-extremely-realistic plot. Subjectively, I want to strangle every single character in here.

Currently Reading: Riot of Storm and Smoke by Jennifer Ellision
I’m really enjoying this one so far (around 25% in I think)! I’m having trouble remembering characters, but that’s because of my booknesia.

Up Next: The Suffering by Rin Chupeco
I’m not 100% sure if I’m going to read this next, but I adored The Girl From the Well, and Faye loved this one, so hell yeah I’m excited.

  1. Ooh these look great! I’ve read Lumiere and it’s okay, it’s super unique and fun though. Ugh I really want Sword and Verse, I requested the ARC but I never heard back so I’m pretty sure I won’t get it. Oh well :) xx J


  2. I loved Assassin’s Heart and The Shadow Queen! I really enjoyed Never Never and The Weight of Feathers! :) I’m slowly preparing for October, which will be Halloween Month for me on my blog! :P


  3. HOLY GORGEOUS HAUL AIMEE^^ Wow, I can’t even go through them and tell you which ones I’m most excited about reading your thoughts on! ALL of them?! I’m sorry that you’ve been drowning in school stuff but we miss you and hopefully things will slow down for you a bit soon xxxx Happy reading ♥

  4. SO MANY BEAUTIFUL BOOKS. *strokes screen* I’m ridiculously excited for all the epic fantasy coming out next year! :D IT IS MY FAVOURITE GENRE TOO. (Well, fantasy in general is my favourite…and I do have a mega-soft spot for paranormal. But I digress.) AND STUDY IN CHARLOTTE!! *fangirls* I hope they’re all as wonderful as they look. :D
    Ahh, I totally understand just collapsing at the end of the day if you have a 5:30 start. THAT’S EARLY AND INTENSE. *nods* I’m a 6:30am person and I feel like that’s early. hahah.

  5. OH MY GOD, YOU HAVE CAMGIRL!! Haha, I’m really excited for that book, in case you didn’t notice. I hope you like Leah’s writing. And GOD I want to read The Sufferning too! I have the first book, but I’m saving it for horror month! (My favourite genre EVER, haha) Hope you’re doing great in school!

  6. Great Haul! You got some good ones in there!

    Anyways, I don’t miss those days where school would sap you and leave you a husk when you rolled back in home. I hope you have time to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally! Best of luck to you this year.

  7. OMG YOUR BOOK HAUL THOUGH. Everyone has a copy of Assassin’s Heart and the cover looks too glorious. Burning Glass has such a pretty cover too, and Blood and Salt is basically one of my most anticipated reads because everyone I know who’s read it has gushed over it. EEEK.


  8. I have been seeing tons of wonderful things being said about The Weight of Feathers. I just finished Dumplin’ and I loved it so much I wrote a blog review right away! I never do that. I shared your survey on my The Sunday Post, I hope you have been getting a lot of survey takers. :)


  9. WOW!!!!! That is an epic book haul Aimee! Luck you:) I’m all about the fantasies as well, so sign me up for all of those! And I’ve read a number of not-so positive reviews of Tonight the Streets Are Ours, so while I had that on my list for next week, I think I’m going to take a pass now. There are too many other books out there I want to read!


What's the juice? Spill!
