Sunday Post #85: Let's Panic! (at the Disco) and Watch Netflix!



Welcome to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where I talk about what is going on in life and the blog, and show you all the bookish things I got that week! Let's get started!


Not much happened this week... you know, just work and stuff. I did watch a ton of Netflix though (which I finally got this past November!) I love Netflix! I watched Captain America: Winter Soldier again... it's my most favorite movie ever! I also finally watched It Follows but Oh My Gods it was SO disappointing! Interesting premise but I ended up not liking it at at all =/



On another Marvel related note, Agent Carter is back, YAY!! I love this show! Peggy is just so kickass and amazing!



Lastly, Panic! at the Disco's latest album finally came out, YESSSSS!!!!! (Although at this point they should be called Brendon! at the Disco, hahaha... *sobs*)



Anyway, I really love it! Except for maybe one song that is very ballad-y... I like the more upbeat stuff. So, yeah, excuse me while I go listen to this album on repeat for the next 3 months :)

M-O-N-S-T-E-R! Monsters, monsters, yes we are! I love the premise of Monster High and I've actually only read the first book, so I decided to get the whole series when I saw it on Book Outlet! Yes this is another Book Outlet order... they were having a sale, okay? Lol.



Some mystery-type books...



Yup... 12 books. I ordered 12 books. I have a real problem. Please, no one stop me ;) Haha. But actually after I got this order I had to rearrange my bookshelves because my books didn't fit! I had to do a lot of moving around before I got them to fit. I should probably stop buying so many books... but I probably wont ;) hehehe


Gift:

Adventures of a New Year's Date: A Holiday Sweet Romance (Funeral Crashing Young Adult Mystery Books)

I got this one in a Newsletter Milda Harris sent out and I was super excited to receive this little novella 'cause I LOVE this series!!

Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015!

So, I feel that I am a bit late with this post, seeing as how it is already mid-January, haha. But here are my Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015 and My Year in Books!
This Goodreads feature is SO cool! :D

First let's take a look at how many books/pages I read in 2015:



76 is a pretty decent number, I think. However, I hope to surpass that by a lot this year! *crosses fingers*

Here are a couple more stats:



4 stars, not bad. That tells me I read a lot of great books, yay!



I am not surprised that one of Rick Riordan's books is "Most Popular." The Blood of Olympus was amazing, as is pretty much everything else he writes :) And wow, more people really need to read the Mellow Summers series, it is so much fun! Especially if you love a good murder mystery with a splash of ghosties thrown in ;)



Again, I am not surprised that one of Rick Riordan's books is one of the longest books I've read. I mean, have you seen those monstrosities?! You could knock someone out if you really wanted to, LOL! And my shortest book wasn't really a book (shhhhh!) It was more of a scene taken from Adventures in Funeral Crashing and told in someone else's POV... it was awesome, nonetheless!!

And now, here are my Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015 That Were Really Hard to Narrow Down to Just 10!

The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus, #5) The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1) Powerless (The Hero Agenda, #1) Forget Me

Rick Riordan books, no surprise there ;) Powerless was SO AWESOME! One of the best superhero books I have ever read! I need the sequel now!!! Forget Me was such an amazing mystery... Kim is really good at writing that sort of stuff and this is why I need more Kim Harrington books!

No Angel The Third Twin The Crawling Darkness (Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper #3)

No Angel was so fun and hilarious! I enjoyed it more than I was expecting to. Plus, male POV! :D Love! The Third Twin was another great, twisty mystery! It saddened me to learn of C.J. Omololu's recent passing :( May she RIP. The Crawling Darkness is, so far, my favorite Ellie Jordan novel! It was so creepy and so well written... it was everything I expected from a horror novel!

Paxton Private Investigations (Paxton Private Investigations, #1) Cold Burn of Magic (Black Blade #1) Adventures in Funeral Crashing (Funeral Crashing, #1)

Two of my favorite authors ever: Juli Alexander and Jennifer Estep. I will pretty much read anything they write knowing I will immediately fall in love with it! Adventures in Funeral Crashing may at first sound really odd, but trust me when I tell you that this series is amazing, a ton of fun, and Kait and Ethan are just SO cute together! Just read it, okay?

And a couple of Honorable Mentions that are actually short stories:

The Crown of Ptolemy Camp Cauldron Valentine's Day Sucks

And that is all! So many great books! Here is to another year filled with many more amazing, fun books! :)

Synopsis:

Something Wicked This Way Comes...

As a thief, I stick to the shadows as much as possible. But when the head of the Sinclair Family picks me to compete in the Tournament of Blades, there's no escaping the spotlight—or the danger.

Even though he's my competition, Devon Sinclair thinks I have the best shot at winning what's supposed to be a friendly contest. But when the competitors start having mysterious "accidents," it looks like someone will do anything to win—no matter who they hurt.

As if I didn't have enough to worry about, mobster Victor Draconi is plotting against Devon and the rest of my friends, and someone's going around Cloudburst Falls murdering monsters. One thing's for sure. Sometimes, humans can be more monstrous than anything else...

My rating:

I love Jennifer Estep and all of her writing and am absolutely loving this series as well! I just love the world and all it's characters with awesome powers (love me some good supernatural abilities, and Lila's are awesome!). So, yeah... it's no surprised I loved this book ;)
