Books I'm Hesitant to Read



There are many reasons different reasons to be hesitant to read a book. The hype may be too much, the sequel may not hold up to the first, or maybe the end to a cherished series seems to just be too final.

Two reasons keep me from reading this book. The first one is the hype. The hype is real for this book. I don't want the hype to get to me because I am known for working up high expectations for a hyped book.
The second reason is this has the potential to a very heartbreaking ending, and I just don't know if I am prepared for that roller coaster.

The Star Touched Queen
This book is so beloved in our community, and being perfectly honest that scares me. I don't want to be the one who doesn't like it. Let's be honest, no one wants to be that one reviewer who doesn't like a beloved book. Even though we all understand that in this community we all have different opinions, and I am proud that I am always honest with my opinions. Still I still don't like being the odd man out.

The Chemist It is no secret I LOVED Twilight. Like many others, Twilight got me back into reading as a teen. So When Meyer came out with The Chemist I was excited and scared. I haven't heard too many people talk about this book so I wonder if everyone is in the same boat. Meyer had such an impact on me when I was younger, I would be heart broken if The Chemist didn't hold up to my expectations. 


Lady Renegades I LOVED Rebel Belle! It was everything I could ask for in a fun read. This book had action, comedy, lovable characters, and a good plot. The second book in the story while still entertaining fell a little flat for me. When this book came out, I saw reviewers I trust not happy with this book at all. While I do always give a book a fighting chance, the reviews were not good. I am just simply afraid to have this series end on a sour let down note. 

Tower of Dawn Lastly I end with a book that I think most people are afraid to read. Don't get me wrong, I will be running to the stores the day this book is released, but I may stare at it for awhile before actually cracking it open. 
The twist that happened in the last TOG book has me on such edge that I don't want to read anything in this world till I know certain people are okay.
I am a choal fan I always have been, but I don't know how I feel about him have an entire book to himself. I am curious and hesitant to see how Tower of Dawn will hold up on it's own without our other beloved characters. I feel like it's a tad cruel to have us all read this book, and leave us on the cliff we were left holding on to from Empire of Storms.  I am holding on the the fact the Maas has never let me down so far, so hopefully she doesn't start now!
    
                       

Those are a few of the books I am hesitant to read. I would love to hear from you guys, and see if we have any of the same books on our list, or some of the same reasons. Leave me your thoughts in the comments.

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
