• To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han ~ When a box of Lara Jean's love letters go missing, she soon becomes the center of everyone's attention, not just anyone, all of the boys she's ever had a crush on.

What's Next:

I just recently finished reading Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass so I will be posting a review sometime this week.
Also I have a couple of ARC's lined up and will have their reviews posted at the end of this week as well.

** Currently Reading: 

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

Currently on page 68 out of 469~ This book starts of with a BOOM and Immediately whisks you away. I'm extremely engaged and super intrigued with the story. 
Loving it so far....

Quote from the book: "The world spun and I jerked away from her grip. Behind me, a small group of trolls had silently gathered and they watched me stumble down the steps towards them. Not all of them were deformed, but they were monsters still, every one of them. And I was to wed one To be bedded by one. To bear its children. This wasn't how it was supposed to to. I was supposed to be on my way to Trianon to get everything I had ever wanted."

Looking forward to finishing my books and writing up reviews for you guys to read. Other than that, I'll be looking forward to this weeks bookish memes I usually participate in. First up:
