During elementary school I used to live for the Scholastic Book Fair. You know, the one where they would set up tons of books (and stationary) in the library so us kiddos could go and shop around. I was the girl who was there everyday before and after school buying books and other book related accessories.. yup, that was me. 10+ years later, not much has changed. If any store has a stack of books, you can catch me browsing… and buying.

Currently Reading | The Selection by Kiera Cass, Wars and The Roses by Dan Jones, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith

The series that has my current attention is The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. This is a young adult/ dystopian romance series, and it’s a really easy read. I finished the first book in about four hours in one go so it’s not difficult at all. Now, this isn’t a literary gem, but it’s a nice book nonetheless. I’m currently on the third book of the series (there are 5 books available), and so far it’s kept my attention! I’ve never watched The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but it has that sort of vibe to it. If you like young adult books with love triangles, princes, and dystopian settings then this book will satisfy your needs. Warner Bros. did purchase the rights to this series so it’ll probably end up playing out on the big screen as well.

Something quite different from The Selection in terms of reading level and writing style, but still regal, is Wars of the Roses: The Fall of the Plantagenets and the Rise of the Tudors by Dan Jones. I haven’t gotten very far in this book, but it is based on history, and was described as being a real life version of Game of Thrones… that’s all it took to get me to buy it. If you’re a book lover and history buff like me, this will check both boxes for you as well.

The third book on my nightstand that I’ve just barely dug into is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Even though I’m not a huge zombie fanatic, this sounds like the perfect twist on a classic. They did make a movie based on this book, but I wasn’t able to get around to the theater to watch it (so sad!). It’s definitely on my list of movies to watch! The main character is played by Lily James, and I loved her in Downton Abbey and Cinderella so I’m excited to watch it!

  • I used to read a lot and now it seems like I hardly have time to read anything. I am not a zombie fan either, however I read a few books and also watched some tv series. If it is a good book, I should check it out. (just watched the trailer and it looks interesting) x

    • Getting to read for fun when you’re older is so challenging. I used to have so much time as a kid to read, but now not so much. I try to read every night before bed!

  • I used to read 2 books a week and then I got married and have a little one and then went down the drain fast. Between family life and blogging, there’s zero time for me to read. :-(

    • Aww I hope you find some time to start reading again! I’m trying to read more so I like to take a bath once in a while and read in there, and I try to read every night before bed!

  • Zombies? And one of the best written love stories? Why have I not heard of this? I’m very intrigued. I knew something like that was made into a film, I never thought it was a book in the first place! I look forward to reading your review on it! I might get it myself! I write a few reviews on some Literature as well! I’d love it if you would check it out http://www.myspoonfulofsugar.co.uk/

    • Ooh I checked it out and love it! So many books to read. I need to catch up haha. I read Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children and really liked it! I have to read the rest of them. I’ve read a lot of the bigger/popular YA book series like The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. I really need to step up my reading game haha. I’m lagging! Any books you highly highly recommend??
