A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.Read More »
Am I surprised that the majority of these anticipated releases are romance novels? No.. I mean I have an excuse because this is the month of Valentine’s Day after all but I do have one sci-fi and one fantasy for you though. 😉 I’ve been in a reading slump lately so I have no idea when I will read these. Although, #1 might get me out of it.
Keep reading for my top February book release!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!!!! (5 days late but you know, better late than never? 😅) *insert noisemakers, confetti poppers, and fireworks display* 2017 probably won’t set in until I stop writing 2016 on my notes (let’s be honest that will be 6 months from now) So many things have happened so before I face 2017 head on, let’s have a little* throwback on this bookish year.
*it’s definitely not little. Prepare yourselves, this is going to be a long one

Reality has set in that this is the last month of books that are ever going to be released in 2016!! 😱😱 Wow.
There are not many books that I got my eye out for, HOWEVER, like the saying goes, it’s quality over quantity.
Let’s just say my December is going to be a colourful event. 😉
Let’s see what’s on my Most Anticipated this month!Read More »
I’ve been tagged by the lovely Melissa @ BookNerdMomo, so thanks a bunch! Please check out her blog if you haven’t already! ❤
Let’s see how many “mess-ups” I’ve got under my bookish belt!!Read More »
Okay, so this was maybe two/three weeks ago…and I wanted to take photos of these books for this post and I kept pushing it off until I finally said, “Let’s take pictures of EVERYTHING IN MY ROOM BECAUSE I’M BORED.” 😅
Let’s appreciate all those titles because I can finally say I own a copy of [insert book here]. Best Booknerd Feeling Ever. Period. To me, buying books is a declaration of love because I hardly buy books and borrow them instead. 👌
Chapters had a sale where you can buy 2 selected YA titles for $20! Twenty dollars. I obviously had to buy four and one was 3 bucks. (I’ll specify which books below)
*round of applause for the awesome deal the book gods have preached us with*
I got one sentence for you: I’m a happy fangirl.
Now, why did I buy these books?? What was going through my book-filled brain as I stood in front of the shelf for at least half an hour making a decision??Read More »
Confession: This is a book blog.
Another Confession: This post is not about books.
Last Confession: This blog happens to be mine so I can do whatever the heck I want. ❤
Disclaimer: If you cannot deal with the intense sarcasm that is laced throughout this post (and my blog), I fear for your mental stability and this is not the place for you.
Aren’t I hilarious?! I’m so funny. Now as you may or may not know, I love writing reviews and I love raving about books, but I’ve been losing inspiration and I want this blog to be more than just reviews. Prepare yourself for rants, inspirational bullshit that I turned into from my life epiphanies, and hell of a lot of weird life updates like how much I love watching documentaries about sex in the wild. (Yup, I just said that, you don’t have to read it again, you read it correctly) AND, GUUUYS, this all relates back to my blog name, Addictively Turning Pages, because not only am I turning pages of books, but my life is also a book and everyday is me flipping a page until I eventually end my life novel and die. (Ohmygod, that was morbid)
As you all know, there’s a lot that goes on outside of all the blogging we do. Today, I’m going to give you a glimpse (a HUGE glimpse) of what that is for me. If I’ve bored you already, I have a lot of reviews posted, so check out this inventory for them, and my Twitter account loves more attention for all the stuff I tweet and retweet! (no shame for self-promotion)Read More »

Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3)
By Robin LaFevers
Hardcover, 444 pages
Published November 4th 2014 by HMH Books for Young Readers
Average Rating: 4.12
Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.
She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn’t mean she has…
This book frustrated the hell out of me. IT WAS TORTUROUS. I couldn’t take it. The whole time I wanted to punch Annith in the face, then when I finished, I was speechless.
ONE OF THE BEST ENDINGS OF A SERIES EVER.
And the thing is, I hated Annith for half of the novel!!! I don’t know how Robin LaFevers managed to redeem herself because ultimately, I love this trilogy.Read More »
The Crown (The Selection #5)
By Kiera Cass
Kindle Edition, 352 pages
Published May 3rd 2016 by HarperCollins Children’s Books
Average Rating: 4.00
When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.
Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.
I couldn’t be more disappointed. I practically skimmed that novel, and was hardly engaged AT ALL. I’m not happy with the ending. Nope. Not a satisfied fangirl. It was RUSHED. It came out of no where. And no matter how happy I am for Eadlyn for following her heart, and defying Marid, I can’t be satisfied with this book.Read More »
