Top Ten Anticipated Releases of October

Hey everyone! So for those who read my comments (I don’t know why you would but maybe you do), I said that this week I would do a post similar to last week’s (Top Ten Most Inspiring Harry Potter Quotes) but look at inspiring quotes from everyone except Dumbledore thanks to an observation by a commenter named Pallavi. Now I knew it was going to be hard, but then I went to actually search for quotes and basically found little inspiring quotes from anyone else. I’m not saying there’s nothing, but there certainly isn’t enough for one post. So I couldn’t do that. Then I thought about the fact that the first week of every month now I wanted to do a Top Ten Anticipated Releases of (insert month) post so it more or less worked out. So after all the mumbo jumbo explanation, I give you the Top Ten Anticipated Releases of October. Hope you enjoy:

1) Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch

2) Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin

3) Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

4) Diamonds are Forever by Michelle Madow

5) Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl

6) The Rose Society by Marie Lu

7) A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

8) The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

9) Girl Online On Tour by Zoe Sugg

10) A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston

Well that’s it for today folks! What did you guys think; are any of the books above on your most anticipated reads list for October? What else is on your list? Tell me all your thoughts in the comments below! Also please comment with future Top Ten post ideas; it’d be much appreciated! Thank you! Have a great day/night and tata for now!

My (Possibly) Awesome Idea

Hello everyone! So as you can tell from the title, I have a possibly awesome idea! I thought of it yesterday while scrolling through Twitter funnily enough. I was just scrolling through, talking to a bunch of people, then I thought of all the highly anticipated releases of the year and then weirdly one word just flashed in my head right after: “calendar”. I don’t know why or how I got from HARs to calendar but it happened and maybe you can guess what my idea is but let me continue. So after that came up, the next thought was “Ooooh what if there was a calendar featuring all the highly anticipated releases of that year?” And that’s how everything started. Of course now my mind is going a mile a minute and I have a ton of ideas for it so let’s get into it all:

  1. Have only one calendar where each month a highly anticipated release (coming out that month) is selected and the cover and synopsis are pictured.
    1. maybe have a giveaway where 12 self publishing/ed authors are selected to have their book featured at the end with it’s release date and cover (I came up with this after thinking of Briana Mae Morgan’s book Blood and Water which is in the works and not really self pubbed but it reminded me of that for some reason)
  2. Have one calendar for each genre-ish: YA, MG, Self Pub, Horror/Mystery/Thriller, Contemporary/Romance, NonFiction (?) and Fantasy/SciFi

Those are my two ideas right now however Michelle from The Writing Hufflepuff also asked me a very good question of whether they would be digital or published (I had to talk to her about this!) so please fill out the poll below:

Also please comment with your thoughts, what idea you like better and other things like that. Also if you’re an author/publisher and are interested in this, comment below or email me at and we can talk! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!

BookCase Club Unboxing

Hello everyone! So I am kinda sorta late on this thanks to my last extra post, My First Book Haul Is Huge. I wanted to wait to do my book hauls at the same time but then everything just started snowballing so now, merely two months later after I received the box, this post exists. It’s all thanks to BookCase Club who kindly, awesomely, allowed me to receive a free box for review. They’re pretty awesome not just for that but for something else they do, which is actually the main reason I contacted them; for every new member/subscription in their club, they donate a book to a charity. It’s pretty awesome because books are so incredibly important and to donate a book to a charity per new customer….well that’s a lot of books donated. So I am incredibly happy and proud I could “work” with them. Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, here’s my first unboxing review:

20150913_085347 (2)
So I got the YA box (for obvious reasons) and was incredibly excited to find out what came in it and it did not disappoint. What I got was:

  • a note about the box…written in sparkly gold pen which I absolutely adore
  • a small purple notebook and
  • two books: Stained by Cheryl Rainfield and The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, and both are hardbacks.

Here’s my thoughts on the contents:

  • the note was very nice to get (definitely keeping it as a souvenir) and the sparkly gold writing was such a wonderful touch. I have a weakness for sparkly pens so thank you for that wonderful surprise BookCase!
  • the notebook was kind of plain and small but it fit the color theme of the box nicely and it’s another notebook I can use so I’m not really complaining
  • the books were a surprise as they weren’t really new books as I expected however I’ve been wanting to read The Testing for a while now so that’s a plus. I didn’t know about Stained but after I read the synopsis I’m realllly interested in reading it, more so than the Testing actually. The fact that both books are hardbacks is pretty great because I just love love love hardbacks!

So that’s really my review….the box itself merely had the BookCase Club logo on the side so there was no need to photograph the box really. I haven’t thrown it out though, in fact it is currently holding all the swag I’ve thankfully gotten. Anyway, thank you to BookCase Club for being the awesome people you are and donating books and sending a free box for me to review. You are so amazing thank you again!

For everyone else, I suggest you try the box at least; it’s only $9.99 which is incredibly cheap compared to the prices of other boxes. Plus even if you try it and don’t think you want to continue, at least you helped in donating a book to a charity and that’s pretty awesome. If you want to find out more about BookCase Club, check out their website here! I encourage you to look around the website and try at least one box.

Thanks everyone, have a great day/night and tata for now!

Top Ten Most Inspiring Harry Potter Quotes

Hello everyone! So today’s top ten is thanks to Jellyfish Mama who shared an idea much much similar to this idea! Thank you! Anyway, I love this idea because I’ve already done quotes in terms of Top Ten posts however I’ve never looked at the inspiring quotes. And we all now Harry Potter, as magical and beautiful as it is, is incredibly inspiring. I go on and on about HP, and I probably sound a bit childish or immature with how much I bring it up, however it’s much more than child’s play. Some of the evidence to back this up comes in the form of the following quotes. So thank you Jellyfish Mama and I hope you enjoy:

1) “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” ― Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

2) “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ― Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

3) “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” ― Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

4) “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” ― Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

5) “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” ― ?

6) “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” ― Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

7) “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” ― Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

8) “Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.” ― Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

9) “Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.” — Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

10) “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” — Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

And that’s it. I hope you feel inspired now, love Harry Potter a little more now and/or realize Harry Potter is not some shallow, child’s book. Now, what are your favorite quotes from the Harry Potter series? Are any of the above quotes on your list? Tell me all your thoughts in the comments below! Also don’t forget to comment with future Top Ten post ideas! Thank you!
