Can't Wait Wednesday, #15: The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings She has taken on a similar meme to Jills Waiting on Wednesday over at Breaking the Spine. Since Jill hasn't posted in a while I'm going to join in on this meme. To participate all you have to do is spotlight upcoming publications you're eagerly anticipating. Keep reading to see what I have chosen for this week.

Expected Publication: March 6th, 2018

Let me start by saying that this cover is absolutely beautiful! It definitely appeals to the eye. The story is based on two teens who have to learn how to live when devastating events occur. It sounds like a great coming of age story as well as a self discovery story. I can't wait to get my hands on it and read it. 

Autumn always knew exactly who she was—a talented artist and a loyal friend. Shay was defined by two things: her bond with her twin sister, Sasha, and her love of music. And Logan always turned to writing love songs when his love life was a little less than perfect.

But when tragedy strikes each of them, somehow music is no longer enough. Now Logan can’t stop watching vlogs of his dead ex-boyfriend. Shay is a music blogger struggling to keep it together. And Autumn sends messages that she knows can never be answered.

Each of them wonders: How different would my life be if this hadn’t happened? And now that it has . . . what’s next?

Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Books I Loved My 1st Year of Blogging

Okay so as some of you guys may know, I started my first year of blogging back in 2015 but was so inconsistent and scared of what to do that it didn't go so well. In fact, this is the first year that I would even consider my blogging to be even close to being where I want to be. Meh, anyway on to the good stuff. It's Tuesday so you know that means another Top 10 Tuesday! This weeks theme is a throw back. So we were given a couple of options and I decided to go with the top 10 books that I loved my first year of blogging. This is going to be as interesting to me as it is to you. I promise!! : )


Americanah. This was my first book by Chimamanda and I absolutely loved it. I found it incredibly captivating and authentic. (Review) Percy Jackson. Although I just included the picture of one of the books, 2015 was the year that I read all of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians books. I believe it started with just reading one for Booktubeathon and then it turned into a reading frenzy and I've been hooked ever since. More Happy Than Not. I fell in love with Adam Silvera while reading this book. I completely enjoyed it and I'm sad to say that I haven't read anything else by him since. I plan on rectifying that soon. (Review)

Spelled. This was an interesting book and at the time I was really into fairy tale re-tellings. I loved the way that Betsy Schow began each chapter. If you haven't picked up this book I definitely think that you should give it a try. The second one just came out not too long ago. (Review) Half-Blood. I was going through a mythology phase and trust me it hasn't ended yet. haha. Half-Blood was truly amazing and I recommend it to any and everyone who wants to a good teen mythology series. Fables. If you know me and you know me well, it will come as no surprise that I'm a Fables junkie. I love this series and I plan on re-reading the series sometime soon so I can remember exactly what happened. 

The Wrath & The Dawn. I heard everyone talking about this one and I just had to get my hands on it. Fortunately, I enjoyed every single page of it. On the down side, I still haven't read the sequel. I know, I know. I have got to do better. Trust me. I keep telling myself the same thing. (Review). The Wicked & The Divine. 2015 must have been the year that I became a comic book junkie because I read a lot of them. This was one of my favorites simply because of the artwork. The story was a little difficult to follow, but man that artwork was well worth the deciphering. Falling Kingdoms. If you haven't read this one I need you to pick it up now! It's great for fans of fantasy and definitely has a Game of Thrones feel to it. 

Outlander. Outlander was one of the most intense historical fiction books I have ever read. It took me a while to get through it, but I must admit it was well worth it. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to the rest of the series yet, but I hope to change that soon.
