In Winter we hit the ground running. Our crew has just kidnapped Kai from his palace/wedding in New Beijing and are hiding out in the Rampion from not only Luna, but Earth as well. Their planning has finally come to a head and they must begin their war against Levana and put Selene (aka Cinder) on the throne. The fact that the evil Queen can literally control their minds only complicates things a teeny bit. *Cough*.

November Book Haul! (Oh hey this is my 50th post)

IMG_5991Hello friends!

I have been accumulating some books this month that I’m very excited about so I thought I would share them with you! It was an accident I swear. I was trying to avoid traffic and I drove by the mall and saw a Half Price Books. I’ve never been to one and I was curious and I wasn’t going to buy anything but next thing I know I’m home with 5 new books. OOPS. Yes, that’s them in the picture to the left. Can you guess what they are? If you can, you either own them or you are magical and I am very impressed. I’m so excited to read them that I couldn’t decide which to start with and picked an old book instead. Teehee.  Anyway, let’s get into it!

Round 1: YA Fantasy/Sci Fi, anyone?

Winter – Marissa Meyer

Check. Pre-ordered this one. Already finished it. I enjoyed it….. but I listened to the rest of the series on audiobook. And I think it was much more enjoyable to listen to than actually read. WHICH IS CRAZY TALK. I feel very odd and tingly about this. But I’m going to write up a full review right after I finish this post, so I’ll talk more about that soon. I will warn you, I’m not as full of love as everyone else seems to be.

The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey

I originally wasn’t interested in this book because I’ve seen quite a few reviews that were pretty “meh” about it, and aliens aren’t generally my favorite. But I saw the preview for the movie and I actually think it looks really good, and I want to read the book before I see it! In all fairness, I think Chloe Grace Moretz is amazing. I thought If I Stay (book version) was terrible and the main character was insufferable and her priorities were just way out of whack. The movie, however, made me bawl my eyes out. It’s all Chloe’s fault. I am really hoping I do like this book though!

Illuminae – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Despite all of the amazing reviews, I actually wasn’t terribly interested in this either. (Is anyone else sensing a pattern here?) I was looking at the YA section in Half Price Books and saw this giant orange book and definitely did a double take. WHAT. Someone has already finished and recycled a basically brand-new release?! SCORE. Got it for $8.00 and it’s in perfect condition. I took it as a sign. It was calling to me. Who am I to disregard the universe?!


IMG_5992

Let’s continue a series…

Heir of Fire & Crown of Midnight – Sarah J. Maas

Continuing the series! I’m also about to write my review for Throne of Glass, which I didn’t love. I am excited for the series to continue, however. I have decided I can only read one book a month. Then I can extend the series a bit longer. Plus I don’t want to buy the hardcover edition of Queen of Shadows because all of the others are paperback.. so I have to wait for it to be re-released… stalling tactics commence.

And OMG on another note, I had a freaking crazy dream the other night. It was like I was reading a book because I wasn’t in the dream I was just watching it. I’m pretty sure Cinder was the main character (are there main characters in dreams? Whatever) because Kai was definitely there and was in love with her but they couldn’t be together because she wasn’t royal and there were these people who had sacrificed a princess to gain her power (enter Throne of Glass) but when they did it they opened a portal and let invisible people through (add in some of The Subtle Knife?). IT WAS JUST CRAZY. Okay moving on.


IMG_5994

Oh hey look I got some adult lit!

Girl With a Pearl Earring – Tracy Chevalier

I remember when the movie for this came out and there was lots of buzz about the book. I was 11 at the time, and I don’t think it would have been quite appropriate for me at that time. The boring cover flap even says: “this luminous novel about artistic vision and sensual awakening”. WHEW. Steamy. But I think 23-year old me can probably handle it. Maybe. Let’s see how mature I actually am, shall we? Answer: not very. Haha but I have always been curious about it and there were a ton of copies that caught my eye so I was like hey. WHY NOT.

Night Film – Marisha Pessl

Night Film has been floating around Booktube lately. I was originally sold on it by Raeleen @ padfootandprongs07, but it keeps being mentioned and my curiosity has just grown. I’m really excited that there was a copy at Half Price Books, I didn’t expect it to be there but it was and I own it and I can’t wait to be scared pantless. Is that a saying? It just popped out of my head like it is.. but maybe I’m crazy. I actually have a huge frustration with common sayings because THEY MAKE NO SENSE. Hahaha I digress.

The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern

YAY. I’m so excited. I swear this book was stalking me pre-book blog. Every time I went to a bookstore it would pop out at me. For some reason, I was resisting it. I didn’t trust my book instincts. But now I’ve honed them and heard so many amazing things about it that I’ve been seriously questioning past me and I can’t wait to read it!


Soo yeah. That’s it.

I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!

Tag Week Finale: Seasons of Book Blogging Tag

Tag Week

Hello lovely bookish people!

To wrap-up tag week, I made my very own tag. It’s kind of silly but I’m very excited about it. I haven’t been tagging anyone this week because I’m going to tag everyone who commented on a post during the week to do this tag! I hope you enjoy it :)

I’m not sure if I’m supposed to answer the questions myself? But I’m going to. Because WHY NOT.

Here is the: Seasons of Book Blogging Tag!

Rules and Regulations:

  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

November is the month when we’re reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. Choose one book you’re grateful for having read and give a shout-out to the person who recommended it!

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

You all know I love Leigh. But I wasn’t sure I really wanted to read Six of Crows until I saw Samantha @ Reed’s Reads & Reviews post on it. Let me just say she was a tiny bit excited about it. ;) Anyway, it definitely made me really curious about the book and I am SO glad I decided to read it because it is wonderful.


December is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.

The Time Keeper

Full disclosure, I am not religious. But I think this book is fantastic for anyone who is or is not religious. It is unbelievably thought-provoking. It’s a quick read and I think it prompts some really important questions about what you believe that everyone should think about. I highly recommend this one for all adults.


January begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not!

I don’t actually make New Year’s resolutions. But I’d like to! So my resolution is that next year I’m going to make resolutions. And I will be keeping it. MMHMM. ;)


February is the month for relationships. Name your favorite book relationship: romantic, platonic, or familial, your choice!

To Kill a Mockingbird

This is such a hard question. I can’t believe I’m asking you guys to answer it. BUT I am all about important family relationships and my dad is one of my favorite people in the whole world, so I’m going to go with Scout and Atticus. I think their relationship is the reason I love this book so much. I haven’t read Go Set a Watchman yet and I’m very nervous about it, but regardless of how things change, Atticus was an incredible father.


March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you’d never read it.

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

I can’t even explain why I love this book so much. I just do. I read it for the first time last year, and I was completely absorbed in the story. It was a heart-wrenching experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.


April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

*Cough* *Cough*. I’M SORRY. I really liked the story, but I had a lot of issues with the writing and I just had SUCH high expectations because I’ve heard nothing but good things, so it really fell flat for me. I am going to continue reading the series in the hopes that it gets better.


May is the month when the flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

I heard about the Lunar Chronicles long before I read them. I listened to the first like three minutes of the audiobook and discovered Cinder was a cranky cyborg and was like uhmm no. But then they kept popping up, so I gave it a more than three-minute chance and discovered I had been SO WRONG. I am so happy I read these books, I think they’re so unique and creative and Cinder is now my favorite character. Bad judgy Jordyn.


June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre that you like to read when you just need to check out.

I like to read YA and Romance when I need a break from life. My favorite books are those that challenge me and make me think about life and philosophy and anything and everything, but sometimes I just want to fall into a simple story. These are the times I reach for YA or Romance books.


July is the time to celebrate your independence! Name a book that made you see fireworks. (Figuratively. Please don’t light books on fire.)

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

I think The Last Olympian stands WAY above all the other Percy Jackson books. It was so fast-paced and I was involved the entire time. It wasn’t quite so formulaic as the first four were, either. All of my issues with characters were resolved, I loved the role Hestia played, just ah. I felt 100% satisfied with the series after reading this book.


August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing.

LEIGH BARDUGO. DUH.


September is time for students to go back to school! Pick a book you read for school that you actually enjoyed.

Briar Rose

I forgot about this book until just now and I want to re-read it. It’s a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, but not. It’s about a family and the Holocaust and I absolutely loved that we got to read it for school. 15-year old me thought it was amazing.

AND my birthday is in September!! The best present I’ve ever gotten was my old cat, Firecracker. She’s gone now but she was the most amazing cat in the whole world. Even if she was ridiculously fluffy and coughed up hairballs no matter what I did to prevent them.


October is time to celebrate Halloween! Pick one character that you would love to dress up as for Halloween.

I think I should probably dress up as Tris because I can not even tell you the number of people who have told me I look exactly like her. But I would LOVE to dress up as Danaerys because she’s a bad ass and I love her. Plus dragons.

Tag Week Day 5: The Book Courtship Tag!

Tag Week

Good morning/afternoon/evening/twilight/whenever you’re stumbling upon this post!

It’s time for Day 5 of Tag Week! You have all been super amazing and supportive and I’m so excited about all of the comments from my online friends! I finally hit 1,000 views which I was really excited about; it’s amazing that you guys would click on something on my page 1,000 times! That’s a lot of clicks. I hope you have enjoyed them all :)

The tag for Day 5 is The Book Courtship Tag! I was tagged  by Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse! Let’s see how me and my book lover get on together (To my lovely boyfriend, don’t worry they won’t come close to you! ;) ).



Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?

The Giver (The Giver Quartet, #1)

The Giver by Lois Lowry

This cover is so prettyyyyy. I’d read one of my roommates’ copies but I didn’t own my own, and I was perusing Target looking for books I had NOT already read and I saw this one aaand you know how it goes. That being said, the content certainly doesn’t let ya down. I’m pretty sure this is my favorite book. But I can’t actually pick a favorite book because there are definitely a couple of them that hold special places in my heart *Cough* *Harry Potter* *Cough*. But I DO know that this is the most beautiful book I’ve ever read. Inside and out ;)

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?

The Other Boleyn Girl (The Tudor Court, #2)

The Other Boleyn Girl – Philippa Gregory

“When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of fourteen, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realises just how much she is a pawn in her family’s ambitious plots as the king’s interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king and take fate into her own hands.”

  1. I love the Tudor stories. 2. It sounds fun and scandalous! 3. IT LIED.

Kind of. It wasn’t nearly as intense as the summary led me to believe. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t what I’d expected.

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

Sidenote: I want this version. I love that cover.

I mean, gotta give a shout out to Jane. I’m really enjoying that I get to put a bunch of my favorite books in this tag, and what better than the best love story for the courtship tag?! I absolutely love Darcy and Elizabeth and this book and I love reading about this time period and all the balls and dresses and meek little courtships. *sigh*. I would have failed miserably if I’d lived during this time. Hold my opinions in? HA.

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas

I’d like to point out that  in every full series I’ve ever read the first book obviously made me want to pick up the rest. So come on. But I’ll play along. I just read Throne of Glass and promptly ordered the next two books! I have to wait for the paperback of book 4 because I can’t have all paperbacks and one hard cover, and I’m cheap. I wasn’t as wowed with this as I’d hoped to be. But I did enjoy it and I’m definitely intrigued! My review will be up soon, after this tag week is over!

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo

I’ve used this answer in a tag before, but I don’t care because it’s true! I started this book and could not put it down. I read the whole thing in about 24 hours. I know a lot of people aren’t huge fans (which I think is just crazy talk) but I absolutely loved it I think it’s perfect and I’m so glad I randomly picked it up in Barnes and Noble! Leigh Bardugo is my fave and if you are here you must learn to deal with my obsession. Can’t wait to see what she comes out with in the future!

Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange – Anthony Burgess

I didn’t particularly like or enjoy this book. But it was fascinating. I couldn’t stop thinking about it because I was trying to figure out the damn language. If you’ve never read it, it’s written like it’s the future and words are different. As you continue, you figure out what they mean through context, but in the beginning it’s really hard to get through. It’s also incredibly violent, but you don’t really realize it until you figure out the language because you don’t know what the words mean… it’s just a book on its own level.

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?

Uncle Tom's CabinUncle Tom’s Cabin – Harriet Beecher Stowe

OOOOH getting physical. I’m assuming this means a book where the cover feels interesting? I have not actually read this book yet, but I bought it because the cover is crazy. It’s like a bendy soft leather with all of those words pressed into it. I’m quite daunted by the book itself, but I pick it up occasionally because it feels nice.

Honorable mention: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon because I also got this because of the color of the cover and the texture.

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop CafeFried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe – Fannie Flagg

UHMM this is dependent on the age of the person I’m recommending a book to! The Giver and Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire and The Things They Carried. But since this tag is for all of the people reading this,  I’m going to recommend FGTatWSC haha wow that’s quite an acronym. I think this is a fantastic book for women of all ages and everyone should read it. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking and sweet and aww. I did a whole review on it here. It’s a quick read and totally worth your time!

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re-read many times in the future?

A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens

SInce I hated on Great Expectations yesterday I figure i should give Charles some love today. A Tale of Two cities is one of my favorite books. I read it in 8th grade for school and hated it, and then again in 10th and LOVED it. I haven’t read it since but I’ve been wanting to lately, and I have a gorgeous copy of my own that is just begging to be read. This is one story my mind wanders to every so often. It’s beautifully written and Sydney Carton is one of my favorite literary characters.

Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?

Wait, wait. I’ve gone through this whole courtship and now I’m just supposed to share the love?! WHY DID WE BREAK UP?! Haha okay I’m done.  But I have not been tagging people intentionally this week, just wait. JUST WAIT.


I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!

Tag Week Day 4: My Life in Books Tag!

Tag Week

Herro.

Day Four!

I’m actually really excited about this tag because it’s more *challeng*-ey and less *let me think deeply about my books*-ey. I was tagged by Samantha @ Read’s Read Reviews, who is just the most enthusiastic little blogger ever and she deserves even more attention than she gets, so go check her out!!

1. Find a book for each of your initials


Just ListenJane EyreThe Kite Runner

Oh cool, J J K.  That’s not difficult at all. Thank goodness there were no more J’s because those are the only J books I’ve read. And there were no K books on my Goodreads. So (the) Kite Runner counts, right? It’s on my TBR list… GRRRR. So my name is Jordyn Jean and I secretly hate my middle name. And my last name is one of those crazy names where I’d know it was my turn in attendance because the teacher would get to the K’s, frown, and stop talking. That was my cue to raise my hand. Also, that’s the cover of my copy of Jane Eyre which I love.

2. Count your age along your book shelf- which book is it?

WHICH BOOKSHELF?! I’m going to pick whichever 23 I like better. Hold please.

East of Eden

East of Eden it is! I have a love-hate relationship with this book. It’s really a terrible story, but parts of it are so beautiful. My favorite quote is “All great and precious things are lonely” which is just beautiful, but an evil woman is the one who says it, so… I try to forget about that. Also, I keep forgetting how old I am. Is this what happens when there are no more exciting birthdays in your future? Gah. Getting old.

3. Pick a book set in your city/state/country

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

Yeah I’m from Port Angeles. Yadda yadda. You know the drill. If you don’t, here’s the story.

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to

I want to travel everywhere. So that’s a lame question.

Alright, The Lord of the Rings because I desperately want to go to Rivendell. ;) Also, the movies were filmed in New Zealand and I really want to go there as well!

5. Pick a book that’s your favorite color

The Fortune Hunter

My favorite color is blue. And I love this cover. In the real-life version, the gold and silver are SHINY. And I love shiny things.

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

UHH DUH.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading? 

It took me about a year and a half to read Great Expectations. I got through from sheer determination. It was dreadfully dull and I really don’t know why it’s so beloved.

8. Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?

Because it’s huge and scary and I’m terrified to read it! But I will one day, and I will feel seriously accomplished once I do. And probably sleep with a night light on for a month or so. No big deal. ;)


I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!

Tag Week Day 3: The Inside Out Book Tag!

Tag Week

HI AGAIN.

Bored of me yet? Yeah I’ll bet you are. It’s okay, it’s hump day! Let’s see if I can make you smile. I feel like that sounded SO creepy hahahahahahaha. I take it back. I’m just going to post into oblivion now.

Okaaayy so today’s tag is the Inside Out book tag! I feel like I’m a bit of a hypocrite because when I saw the commercials for this movie it was just not doin’ it for me. So I haven’t seen it. But given everyone’s reactions I will probably watch it..sometime.. I love Disney movies! I just thought it was a weird concept and reminded me of the feelings version of Osmosis Jones which I HATED. But I’m gonna do the tag anyway because I cannot disobey the rules of the game and I’m IT.

I was tagged by Kelsey @ Don’t Shush Me! So go check her out after you read this post. :) I totally stole the gifs she used for her post. Sorry Kelsey! They’re just so cute!


A book that brings you joy!

giphyHarry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

How could this book not make me happy? I’m pretty sure it makes everyone happy. This whole series makes the whole world happy. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. Haha seriously though, when I’m sad I re-read this book. I can read it in a few hours because I’ve read it SO MANY TIMES I basically have it memorized.

A book that scares you!

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwoodgiphy-5

A lot of dystopian books scare me because I can envision our world going wrong and landing us in the same situations they’re in. The Handmaid’s Tale is the worst though, because it lands us in a world where women have zero rights. AGAIN. Which is terrifying. If you haven’t read this yet, you absolutely should because it’s amazing.

A book that disgusts you!

giphy-4Conversion by Katherine Howe

You will never again hear me mention this book on my blog, because I hated it. I hated everything about it. It was the biggest ever waste of my time. It’s kind of about the Salem witch trials, which I’ve always been fascinated by. It’s set in the modern day and alters between current and past perspectives. And the ending is just. Disgusting. No.

A book that makes you sad!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Greengiphy-3

I’ve never mentioned a John Green book! I will use this moment to be a fan girl and say that I absolutely loved The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska and they both made me laugh and cry and John Green is amazing. Period.

A book that makes you angry!

Life of Pi by Yann Martelgiphy-2

I loved the first 99% of this book. And then it ended. And the ending made me so so mad because it ruined what had been a truly incredible book. And I really wish I could tell you why, but in case you ever read it I can’t. Because you will either be happy with the ending or you will end up like me.


That’s it! I’m not going to lie, I’m getting a teeny bit tired of tags. My answers are too similar. I’m being boring which is basically my worst nightmare. So in the effort of livening things up a bit, here is an adorable kitten asking you to be my friend:

I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!

Tag Week Day 2: Fall Time Cozy Time Book Tag!

Tag Week

Hello friends!

It’s Day 2 of Tag Week, and I’m going to do another tag about fall! Yippee! Are there any winter tags floating around? If there are, I have yet to see them…

Today’s tag is The Fall Time Cozy Time Book Tag! Can I just say, am I the only one who thinks the name of this tag is ridiculous? No offense to the creator, but I think just one or two descriptive words would have been good. However, I do think this tag is very cute and I’m excited that I was tagged by TWO wonderful bloggers: Deana @ A Novel Glimpse and Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels (P.S. Astra?! That’s a gorgeous name!).

Tag Week Day 1: The Autumn Book Tag!

Tag Week

Hello friends!! It’s time for Tag Week! I decided on The Autumn Tag for Day 1 because it’s a bit time-sensitive… I mean the Autumn Tag in January would basically be moot…

This has never happened, but I have no more rambles for this intro. WHAT. So let’s get started :)

I was tagged by Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse! According to her page this tag was originally created by an extinct YouTuber sooooo…. we can thank Anonymous for this.

J. Bookish (me) fails at tags

Hello friends.

This is a solemn occasion and an admittance of failure. From me, J.

I SUCK AT TAGS.

I currently have 9 tags, 2 challenges, and 3 awards I have yet to participate in.

And I love tags! They’re so fun! I don’t even know what I’ve been posting about if not all of these fun challenges! So to all of you who have tagged me for something and been like wow, you suck, I apologize! I will get to them, I promise.

In fact, I have an announcement!

Next week is going to be theeee WEEK OF TAGS!

Obviously I won’t be able to do all 9 of them, but there will be one tag each day for 7 days. I hope you join me for what I’m sure will be an interesting (in a good way…?? We shall see..) journey, but if you just hit one day I’m sure most of my answers will be the same anyway ;)

I appreciate every one of you who has tagged me (especially you, Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse for most of these tags)! I promise I’ll be on top of them in the future :)

Anyway…. how’s your day? Mine’s good. Did you know that “anyways” isn’t technically a word? It’s a colloquialism. It’s a pet peeve of mine. Today was my only day off which is LAME. So yeeah. Good talk. TWO DAYS TILL’ WINTER. Totally pre-ordered off Amazon. Even though I don’t own any of the rest of the series. The hardcover was only $3 more than the Kindle price! Hell yeah I’m getting the actual book! Fun fact, I never ever use my Kindle. I don’t think it’s nearly as fun to read as real books. Hahah anywho, let the week of tags commence!

I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!

Reading Partners – VOLUNTEER!

AHHH I forgot to put this in my October wrap-up like I meant to. Bad Jordyn.

I recently started volunteering for an AmeriCorps program called Reading Partners and I wanted to get the information out to all of you readers!

Reading Partners is a really cool program that requires just an hour of your time each week to tutor a student at a low-income school who needs some extra help with their reading. It’s truly a fun, simple, and rewarding program. If you can spare an hour a week I highly encourage you to see if there’s a program near you that you can volunteer for!

Here’s the Reading Partners site link:

http://readingpartners.org/

Thank you for reading this PSA ;)

I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading!
