Browsing Bloggers Bookhselves | Bookish Wisps
I wasn’t lying when I said this was going to become an actual feautre on my blog now, I’ve had a lot of people reach out to do this with me. I’m really excited about todays post where I get to feature Justine from Bookish Wisps shelves, she’s become a great new friend of mine! I love her content a lot so please stop by her blog, not just to browse my shelves but to read her other content too.
Want to know how to take part?
We’ll share photographs of our (main) bookshelves with each other so the other person can”browse” them and pick out books they’d recommend, books they suggest to avoid, or books they’d love to read.
I’ve loved doing this and can’t wait to do more but please contact via Twitter DMs or emails. I do have a list of these ready so do anticipate it being a post to schedule for the future if you reach out. Unfortunately if you only reply to a tweet I’m more likely to loose it in the notifications, which I know has happened and I’m trying my best to go and find them…
So now lets dive into Justine’s books! I really enjoyed browsing her shelves as I noticed that the publishing style of a few of these are different than what I’ve seen before; they look taller and are also in a protective wrapping which is pretty awesome.
I’ll use these emoji’s as a code:
📚 – books to add to my tbr | 📖 – read and recommend | 💔 – do not recommend
📖Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas [purchase]
I’ve read most of this series and its definitely hit or miss for readers. For me I was super invested when I first started it, and I still find it a very easy read.
📚Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by April Genevieve Tucholke [purchase] & The Young Elites by Marie Lu [purchase]
I’m actually very surprised I don’t own either of these, in fact only one was on my wishlist. Both have caught my eye multiple times so hopefully I can read them one day.
💔Divergent series by Veronica Roth
When I read the first two in the trilgoy I was definitely fond of them but I felt it took too long to get to the good part. I never finished the trilogy even tho the ending of Insurgent is what hooked me most… Ooops.
📖The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black [purchase]
I still feel numb and in desperate need for the final book. I need it now tbh.
📚N0S4A2 by Joe Hill [purchase] & Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy [purchase]
I’m really intersted in giving any Joe Hill book a try tbh! I’m all for reading more horror. I know that you’re a little more surprised by Ramona Blue but the rep in this book seems like something I’d relate to a lot and enjoy.
💔Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Waa, I’m sorry. I tried it, the ending started to interest me but the future love interest made me sick in this book so I can’t brave any more.
📚Starters by Lissa Price [purchase] & Beauty Queens by Libba Bray [purchase]
I actually have a signed HB of Starters that I won forever ago – I should really get to it one day. But Beauty Queens is one of the highest books on my wishlist and I’m kinda annoyed at myself for having not purchased it yet.
📖The Book Thief by Markus Zusak [purchase]
This is an old fave of mine. I honestly enjoyed it so much I didn’t want it to end, so I dragged out reading it for about 6 months.
📚The Rose & the Dagger and The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh [purchase]
I do own both of these but as with a lot of my owned books I haven’t read them yet! I’m super excited to get to them one day.
Ooops its 2am. I was supposed to finish this post 30 minutes ago but I fell into a book for an hour or so instead. But hi I did it! Should I say for the 100th time how much I love doing these post… its so fun to see how similar or different friends choices are. I can’t wait to see what Justine has chosen from my shelves to talk about.
Did I skip over any of your favourite books?
