May 5th – Dreaming I Was There Now…


Velaris – A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas

I obviously dream about living in the townhouse in Velaris every single day, especially being surrounded by 3 sexy as hell guys. I wouldn’t be sharing them with the other girls though. Nope, ain’t happening!


Jedi Temple on Coruscant – Star Wars 

Yes, I am a MASSIVE Star Wars fan. I love it so damn much. And like, how cool would it be to get to be a Jedi? THE FREAKING COOLEST! But not during the attack on the temple, I’d rather not have to die thanks to Order 66.


Red London – Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E. Schwab

Yes, yes, yes! I would like to say that it would be so freaking cool to watch the Essen Tach in person. Or maybe in compete? Yes, I think I like the sound of that even more.


May 12th – Oh, So Pretty!

There are so many gorgeous book covers out in the world that I wanted to give equal attention to some favorite oldies and upcoming beauties! I hope you don’t mind me getting a little too carried away with this one but I’m kind of obsessed with book covers. Which leads me to ask you the question – Are you disappointed more by amazing books with terrible covers or terrible books with amazing covers? I think it’s more of the former for me, especially when it’s a book that I’ve been looking forward to and then they reveal the cover and it’s awful.

Upcoming Releases

Can I just say that I really think that publishing companies have upped their cover game this year?! It’s amazing how much better cover designs have gotten over the past couple of years. Soooooo pretty!

What fantasy worlds do you wish you lived in? What book covers do you obsess over? Are there any 2017 releases that you love? Do you think book covers are getting better recently? Leave a link to your Hype or Like Friday post in the comments below!
