Book Ramble - Renegades

Image
Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and Archenemies by Marissa Meyer came out this week, I'm getting my copy Sunday, so of course I had to ramble about Renegades! Most definitely a GET ME ALL THE MERCH!



"Heroism wasn't about what you could do, it was about what you did. It was about who you saved when they needed saving." 
TRIGGER WARNING: Death
Renegades fulfills my requirement for Zeus in #mythothon, the readathon that I'm participating in this month! It definitely helps that this is written by one of my favorite authors, and I'm glad to say that she did not disappoint (except for the ending...I'll get into that).

First things first: the characters in this story are incredibly well developed. My only issue with multi-POV stories because I feel like there isn't enough time to …

October Wrap Up!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and October has been pretty good to me!

B O O K I S H  M O N T H  I've read four books this month! Considering I didn't read any last month (mental health reasons) and that none of these were for school, I'd say that's pretty good! This month I finished:Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. ChoiGlass Sword by Victoria AveyardFuryborn by Claire LegrandPercy Jackson's Greek Gods by Rick RiordanI decided that I'm going to join my first readathon! It's #mythothon, and my TBR is posted here! It's incredibly ambitious and I can't wait to start!I got my tickets to go to a meet and greet with Marissa Meyer next month! I am extremely excited to get Archenemies signed by one of my favorite authors and get to meet her! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#mythothon TBR

Hey everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and I've decided that next month I want to participate in #mythothon created by the amazing Foxes and Fairytales!


Music I Listened to While Writing: QUESTION (the theme for the second season of Assassination Classroom)
So as much as I want to read 25 prompts, that's 25 books. I've barely read that much this year. And considering I have school and family obligations, I don't know if that would be entirely possible. So, while this won't be a TBR for all 25 prompts, I do want to cover the main twelve Olympians, Hestia, and Hades. 14 books in all. I may make another post with which books I'll read if I get past 14, but these are my main priorities.

Zeus. King of the Gods. King of the Skies. - Read a book with at least 400 pages.

So I don't have this book yet, but I'm probably goi…

School of Thought - Book Six of Le Morte d'Arthur

Hey everybody! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and as an English major, I had to read Book Six of Le Morte d'Arthur, to which I reply what the heck was going on?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a new little segment I'm going to callSchool of Thought,because it sounds incredibly educational and formal, but isn't. I think it would be funny to rant about the books I have to read for school while ranting in an incredibly informal way. Why? Because it amuses me. Think Drunk History but for books (but not Thug Notes, because I'm not that cool). These are going to be heavily spoiler-filled. You have been warned.

TRIGGER WARNING: Gore, mentions of necrophilia (it's a weird one), death

Book Five of Le Morte d'Arthur focuses on Sir Lancelot…

Book Ramble - Illuminae

Image
Hi everyone! I'm back from taking a mental health break! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is one of my favorite series, definitely a GET ME ALL THE MERCH!



"I don't know my limit, but I'm scared to reach it. I don't know what will happen if I do. And I still can't sleep."

TRIGGER WARNING: Death


Illuminae was definitely a series that I picked up because of the book community. I heard a lot about the interesting format and it made me want to check it out, and I am so glad that I did because it quickly became one of my favorite series.

S P O I L E R - F R E E  T A L K 
My favorite part of Illuminae is the characters. Our two main protagonists are Kady Grant and Ezra Mason, two teenagers who broke up hours before their planet was attacked by a corporation known as BeiTech. For the m…

August Wrap-Up

Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and I can't believe August is already over!

Bookish Month

I read 5 books in August! I would've read more but I got busy this month, and to be honest the Raven Cycle series left me in a bit of book hangover. Curse Maggie Stiefvater's beautiful writing. Anyways, the books I read this month are:Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri ManiscalcoGirl of Nightmares by Kendare BlakeSiege and Storm by Leigh BardugoOne of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManusRuin and Rising by Leigh BardugoI finished the Grisha trilogy! I've been wanting to read it and I'm honestly glad that I've read it before Six of Crows because I've heard that the duology is better, and I really did love the trilogy. It was a bit problematic. Expect a series review soon!I completed my Goodreads goal with Hunting Prince Dracula! So far I've read 24 books, so I'm excited to see how many I can read this year, so I can up my goal for next year!I go…

Playlist Tag - Fall Out Boy Edition

Hey everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox" and this is the Playlist Tag, Fall Out Boy edition!

So Fall Out Boy is my absolute favorite band. I've seen them live twice (I almost touched Pete Wentz's hand!) and am begging my mother to get me tickets to see them once again this month, despite the fact that without her I currently have no way of getting there since neither my friends or I can drive us there.

Anyways, I went on Spotify and put the Fall Out Boy I have saved on shuffle. I picked five songs and which books I think they fit. I like having things in a format, so it's Song (Album) - Book. Without further ado, here's the playlist tag!

1. Champion (Mania) - The Hunger Games
Lyrics Related to the Book: "I'm the champion of the people that don't believe in champions." "If I can live through this, I can do anything."
2. The Mighty Fall (Save Rock and Roll) - The Raven Boys/The Dream Thieves Lyrics Related to the Book: "O…
