March TBR

March TBR 2018

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share with you all my TBR list for the month of March. I’m probably not going to end up reading all the books on this list since I stink at sticking to my TBRs, but I’m really excited about all these books! Without further ado, let’s get started! (The following list is in no particular order. All book covers link to the book’s Goodreads page.)


My March TBR:

1-3. Illuminae, Gemina, & Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae Files series

I’m SO excited for the release of Obsidio next week!! Before I read it though, I want to reread Illuminae and Gemina (again). I believe I’ve already read both of them twice! Honestly I love them so much I’ll probably be rereading them again and again. This time around, I think I’m going to listen to the audiobook for Gemina (while following along in the physical copy) since I really enjoyed listening to Illuminae’s audiobook. I hope that Gemina‘s is just as great!

4. Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke

Nice Try, Jane Sinner

I have this book checked out from the library and I’m really excited to read it! I’ve heard good things about it and it sounds like it’s going to be really good!

5. Like Water by Rebecca Podos

Like Water

Like the last book I mentioned, I also have this book checked out from the library and I’m really interested in reading it! I’ve heard some good things about it as well so I’ll hopefully be picking it up soon!

6-7. The Hammer of Thor & The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan

Untitled1

I’ve been wanting to finish reading this series ever since the last book was published in October of last year but for some reason I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m hoping to reread The Hammer of Thor and read The Ship of the Dead sometime this month!

8. The True Queen by Sarah Fine

The True Queen

Speaking of finishing series, I’m super excited to read the last book in the Impostor Queen series, The True Queen. I can’t wait to see what happens in this book and how the series ends!


That’s it for my March TBR! Let’s see how many of these books I actually read. What do you plan on reading this month? Comment below and/or leave a link to your TBR post!

October TBR

October TBR 2017

Hi everyone and welcome to October! I can’t believe there are only 3 months left in the year. 2017 is really flying by! This is my third month in a row making a monthly TBR, which is quite impressive for me. Now, I still didn’t 100% stick to my September TBR but I wouldn’t be me if I did! I read 3 of the 7 books on that list.

This month I put together a list of 9 books that I would like to read in October. Let’s see how many of these I actually manage to finish! The following list is in no particular order and all covers link to Goodreads.


My October TBR:

1. The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo

I’ve heard quite a few people talking about how great this book is on Twitter and it has made me even more interested in reading it! It sounds like an awesome and epic (no pun intended) book and I can’t wait to read it!

2. I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo

I Believe in a Thing Called Love

I picked this book up on a whim while at the library because I had heard a few people gushing about it (again, on Twitter where I spend too much time on instead of reading). It sounds like it’s a good contemporary book, which apparently I’ve been in the mood for recently.

3. Warcross by Marie Lu

Warcross

I’ve heard people talking about this book for months and it sounds super interesting so I’m dying to read it! I’ve only ever read one book by Marie Lu and that was Legend way back in 2014, I believe. I’m interested in giving another book of hers a go!

4. 27 Hours by Tristina Wright

27 Hours

I’ve been anticipating this book for awhile now and I was so excited when I was able to get an ARC! This book was pitched as “queers in space” if I recall correctly and that sounds pretty damn awesome to me! I’m also interested to see if the ace rep is good or not. (Don’t mind me…I’m just your resident ace starved for good rep.)

5. The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan

The Ship of the Dead

I am SO pumped to read this book!! It’s Rick Riordan so of course I am. I loved the first two books in this series and I can’t wait to see what goes down in this final book!

6. Invictus by Ryan Graudin

Invictus

I read and loved Ryan Graudin’s Wolf by Wolf duology so I’m very excited to read another book by her! This book sounds so interesting and the cover is very cool as well. I really hope I’m able to get to this book this month!

7. Dear Martin by Nic Stone

Dear Martin

I’ve been anticipating Dear Martin for quite some time now and I’m so excited I got an ARC so I’m able to read it! This book is very tiny (only a bit over 200 pages) so I’m sure I could read it in less than a day. I’m really looking forward to reading it!

8. That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston

That Inevitable Victorian Thing

I’m very excited about reading this book as well! It’s been on my radar for quite some time and it sounds really interesting! I should be getting it in the mail any day now (I’m borrowing an ARC from a fellow blogger) and I can’t wait to dive in!

9. Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović

Wicked Like a Wildfire

This final book on my list is another new release that I’ve been interested in reading. I just picked it up from the library the other day and I hope I’m able to get to it before it’s due back!


Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What do you plan on reading this month? Comment below and/or leave a link to your October TBR post!

Tentative September TBR

Tentative September TBR

Hi everyone! Wow, look at me making a TBR post two months in a row. That never happens! Last month I was actually pretty decent at sticking to my August TBR. I ended up reading 4 out of 7 of the books on my list and tried to read another before putting it on hold! However, I’m not sure how closely I’m going to follow this month’s TBR hence why I’m referring to it as “tentative.” Maybe I’ll read all the books on this list, maybe I’ll read some of the books on the list, maybe I’ll read additional books that aren’t on this list – who knows! All book covers in this post link to the book’s Goodreads page. Let’s get started!


My Tentative September TBR:

1. The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana

The Library of Fates

I have been drafting this post for a couple of days now (I couldn’t settle on my TBR) so by the time this post is going up, I’ve already completed The Library of Fates! At least I know now that I’ll complete at least one book on my TBR!

2. Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco

Hunting Prince Dracula

I’m getting an ARC of this book from a trade in the mail soon and I’m super excited to read it! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Stalking Jack the Ripper, and I’m looking forward to seeing if the sequel lives up to the first book!

3. Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

Daughter of the Burning City

I received this book as a birthday present last month from my best friend and I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile now so I really hope I’m able to get to it this month! It has a super gorgeous cover and sounds really interesting as well!

4-5. This Savage Song & Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Monsters of Verity duology

I’ve been wanting to start this duology since the first book was published, but I wanted to wait until I owned both books. Now that I have them both, I really need to read them!

6. Because You Love to Hate Me edited by Ameriie

Because You Love to Hate Me

I recently got this book and it sounds really interesting so I hope to read it this month. Since it’s an anthology, maybe I could read a couple of stories here and there throughout the month!

7. Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling

I read a book by this author last month and really enjoyed it so now I want to read another of her books! I’ve actually owned Graceling for quite some time now and I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet!


Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What do you plan on reading this month? Comment below and/or leave a link to your September TBR post!

August TBR

August TBR 2017

Hello everyone! As you can tell by the title, I’m going to share with you my TBR for the month of August! Way back in January I made a TBR post where I mentioned I wanted to post monthly TBRs more often. Well, that really didn’t catch on because this is the first time since then that I’m making a TBR post. Oops! This month’s TBR consists of library books (#1-6) that are due back this month (that I’m interested in reading sooner rather than later) and two books I’m getting in the mail soon (#7 & 8) that I’m excited to read. Other than that, the books are in no particular order. In this post I’ve decided to include the synopsis for each book. In addition, each book cover links to that book’s Goodreads page. Enjoy!


My August TBR:

1. The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi

The Gauntlet

A trio of friends from New York City find themselves trapped inside a mechanical board game that they must dismantle in order to save themselves and generations of other children in this action-packed debut that’s a steampunk Jumanji with a Middle Eastern flair.

When twelve-year-old Farah and her two best friends get sucked into a mechanical board game called The Gauntlet of Blood and Sand—a puzzle game akin to a large Rubik’s cube—they know it’s up to them to defeat the game’s diabolical architect in order to save themselves and those who are trapped inside, including her baby brother Ahmed. But first they have to figure out how.

Under the tutelage of a lizard guide named Henrietta Peel and an aeronaut Vijay, the Farah and her friends battle camel spiders, red scorpions, grease monkeys, and sand cats as they prepare to face off with the maniacal Lord Amari, the man behind the machine. Can they defeat Amari at his own game…or will they, like the children who came before them, become cogs in the machine?

2. Want by Cindy Pon

Want

Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits that protect them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city’s corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother, who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost.

With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary.

Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp’s CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is or destroying his own heart?

3. The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

The Names They Gave Us

Everything is going right for Lucy Hansson, until her mom’s cancer reappears. Just like that, Lucy breaks with all the constants in her life: her do-good boyfriend, her steady faith, even her longtime summer church camp job.

Instead, Lucy lands at a camp for kids who have been through tough times. As a counselor, Lucy is in over her head and longs to be with her parents across the lake. But that’s before she gets to know her coworkers, who are as loving and unafraid as she so desperately wants to be.

It’s not just new friends that Lucy discovers at camp—more than one old secret is revealed along the way. In fact, maybe there’s much more to her family and her faith than Lucy ever realized.

4. Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts

Royal Bastards

Being a bastard blows. Tilla would know. Her father, Lord Kent of the Western Province, loved her as a child, but cast her aside as soon as he had trueborn children.

At sixteen, Tilla spends her days exploring long-forgotten tunnels beneath the castle with her stablehand half brother, Jax, and her nights drinking with the servants, passing out on Jax’s floor while her castle bedroom collects dust. Tilla secretly longs to sit by her father’s side, resplendent in a sparkling gown, enjoying feasts with the rest of the family. Instead, she sits with the other bastards, like Miles of House Hampstedt, an awkward scholar who’s been in love with Tilla since they were children.

Then, at a feast honoring the visiting princess Lyriana, the royal shocks everyone by choosing to sit at the Bastards’ Table. Before she knows it, Tilla is leading the sheltered princess on a late-night escapade. Along with Jax, Miles, and fellow bastard Zell, a Zitochi warrior from the north, they stumble upon a crime they were never meant to witness.

Rebellion is brewing in the west, and a brutal coup leaves Lyriana’s uncle, the Royal Archmagus, dead—with Lyriana next on the list. The group flees for their lives, relentlessly pursued by murderous mercenaries; their own parents have put a price on their heads to prevent the king and his powerful Royal Mages from discovering their treachery.

The bastards band together, realizing they alone have the power to prevent a civil war that will tear their kingdom apart—if they can warn the king in time. And if they can survive the journey…

5. Dark Breaks the Dawn

Dark Breaks the Dawn

On her eighteenth birthday, Princess Evelayn of Éadrolan, the Light Kingdom, can finally access the full range of her magical powers. The light looks brighter, the air is sharper, and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless.

But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn into the throne much sooner than she expected.

In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shape-shift, and rely on the alluring, but mysterious Lord Tanvir. Not everyone is what they seem, and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price.

6. Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh

Flame in the Mist

The only daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has always known she’d been raised for one purpose and one purpose only: to marry. Never mind her cunning, which rivals that of her twin brother, Kenshin, or her skills as an accomplished alchemist. Since Mariko was not born a boy, her fate was sealed the moment she drew her first breath.

So, at just seventeen years old, Mariko is sent to the imperial palace to meet her betrothed, a man she did not choose, for the very first time. But the journey is cut short when Mariko’s convoy is viciously attacked by the Black Clan, a dangerous group of bandits who’ve been hired to kill Mariko before she reaches the palace.

The lone survivor, Mariko narrowly escapes to the woods, where she plots her revenge. Dressed as a peasant boy, she sets out to infiltrate the Black Clan and hunt down those responsible for the target on her back. Once she’s within their ranks, though, Mariko finds for the first time she’s appreciated for her intellect and abilities. She even finds herself falling in love—a love that will force her to question everything she’s ever known about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.

7. The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace

The Princess Saves Herself in this One

The Princess Saves Herself in This One is a collection of poetry about resilience. It is about writing your own ending. From Amanda Lovelace, a poetry collection in four parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. The first three sections piece together the life of the author while the final section serves as a note to the reader. This moving book explores love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, and inspiration.

8. Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Mask of Shadows

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home.

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge.

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.


What books are you planning on reading this month? Do we share any of the same books on our TBRs? Let me know down in the comments and/or link me to your August TBR post! I would love to see what you plan on reading.

Booktube-A-Thon 2017 TBR

Booktube-A-Thon 2017 TBR

Hi everyone! I’ve decided last minute to join in on Booktube-A-Thon! Booktube-A-Thon is a week-long readathon hosted by Ariel Bissett on Youtube that starts tomorrow, June 24th, and ends Sunday, June 30th. The main goal of the readathon is to read as much as you can, but you can also participate in the reading challenges, video challenges, photo challenges, and reading sprints. For more information, check out the Booktube-A-Thon Youtube channel!

My TBR:

I want to try to complete most, if not all, of the 7 reading challenges for this round of Booktube-A-Thon so I’m basing my TBR around those challenges. Note: click on the book covers to be taken to that book’s Goodreads page.

1. Read a book with a person on the cover

The Dark Prophecy

I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I read the first book, The Hidden Oracle, last year. I’m so excited to see what happens next! But first I have to reread the first book because I can hardly remember anything that happened (see #3 on this list).

2. Read a hyped book

Once and For All

I don’t think this book is super hyped by the book community, but I personally hyped it up big time! Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite contemporary authors and I’ve been reading her books since I was around the age of 12. I’m so excited to read her newest novel!

3. Finish a book in one day

The Hidden Oracle

As I mentioned above, I’m going to be rereading this book before reading The Dark Prophecy. Hopefully I’m able to finish this in one day! I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to due to the fact that Rick Riordan’s books are so fun and entertaining that they’re such fast reads. Also, the book isn’t that long.

4. Read about a character that is very different from you

dreamland-burning

I’ve checked Dreamland Burning out from the library a couple times now and still haven’t been able to read it before its due date comes around. I hope to read it during this readathon because it sounds really interesting and it will definitely complete this challenge!

5. Finish a book completely outdoors

The Sandcastle Empire

I’m totally going to cheat on this challenge because I really don’t like the outdoors. Plus, it’s way too hot and humid where I live to sit outside and read an entire book. So what I’m going to do is finish up the last few pages outside so I don’t die of heat stroke or get eaten alive by bugs!

6. Read a book you bought because of the cover

Jackaby

99.9% of the reason why I bought this book was because of its gorgeous cover. I only have a vague idea of what the actual story is about but it’s not too long of a book so it’s perfect for a readathon!

7. Read seven books

I probably won’t finish all the books listed above by the time this readathon is over (if I do, I’ll be really shocked) so I decided to not pick out a 7th book ahead of time. If – by some miracle – I finish those books, I’ll decide then what to pick up next.


Are you participating in Booktube-A-Thon? If yes, are you taking part in any of the challenges (reading, video, or photo)? Let me know down in the comments and feel free to leave a link to your TBR post as well!

January TBR

january-tbr-2017

Hi guys and welcome to my first TBR post of the year! As you may or may not know, I don’t post too many of these kinds of post on my blog because I’m not that great at sticking to TBR lists. However, I thought that maybe having some sort of plan for each month will help me complete all the reading challenges I’ve joined this year. While I’d love to be able to read more than these 7 books this month, I’ve only picked out these to start with. Hopefully I’ll be able to read them all plus a couple more! The list is in no particular order and each book title links to that book’s Goodreads page.


1-2. The Wrath & the Dawn and The Rose & the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn duology

I know I said this list is no particular order but these two actually are. At the time of publishing this post, I have already finished The Wrath & the Dawn and I’m currently reading The Rose & the Dagger. I still wanted to include them in this list because they were in my mental TBR in the beginning of the month and I just didn’t get around to publishing this post before now. The Wrath & the Dawn was actually a reread for me because I wanted to read the sequel but hardly remembered anything from the first book. I loved rereading The Wrath & the Dawn and it was even better than I remembered! (More thoughts at the end of the month in my January wrap up post.)

3-4. Frozen Tides & Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes

frozen-tides-crystal-storm

This month I really want to reread Frozen Tides before diving into the next book in the series, Crystal Storm. I first read Frozen Tides this time last year and my memory is a bit fuzzy so I want to be reminded of the events of Frozen Tides before continuing on with the series. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next!!

5-6. The Heart of Betrayal & The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

the-heart-of-betrayal-the-beauty-of-darkness

I’m continuing on the theme of rereading a book to continue on with a series with these two books! I’ve been wanting to read The Beauty of Darkness since it came out but I just haven’t gotten around to rereading The Heart of Betrayal yet. I first read The Heart of Betrayal in August of 2015 so I definitely need a refresher! I’m hoping I’ll finally be able to finish the Remnant Chronicles trilogy this month!

7. The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

The Crown's Game

Another book I plan on reading in January is The Crown’s Game! It’s the group read for TGTRAT’s January theme of Russia. (TGTRAT = The Great Twitter Readathon, a Twitter-based readathon hosted by @sierraiswriting. For more information, check out the TGTRAT Twitter account.) I’m really excited to read this book since it’s been on my TBR for quite some time now!


What are some books that you want to read this month? Are we planning to read any of the same books? Let me know in the comments!

Rest of the Year TBR

rest-of-the-year-tbr

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a different kind of TBR post. I don’t make TBRs too often (because most of the time I don’t end up sticking to them) so this post is more of a general “what I want to read before the year is over” kind of post.

Speaking of the year ending, I can’t believe 2016 is almost over! It feels like this year just flew by. At the beginning of the year, I set my Goodreads goal at 80 books. In 2015, I just barely reached my goal of 100 books so I didn’t want to push myself too much in 2016. However, I got sick in February and was hardly reading so I lowered my goal to 70 books in March. As of right now, I have read 54 books towards that goal. So that means I have to read 16 books in order to reach my goal. Listed below (in no particular order) are the 16 books I hope to read before the year ends!


1-2. Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

six-of-crows-duology

I know I said that this list is in no particular order but I know I’m definitely starting with these two books. I’m currently rereading Six of Crows (I’m about halfway through) then I plan on immediately diving into Crooked Kingdom. I first read Six of Crows last year shortly after its release and absolutely loved it! I’m really loving reading it again and I can’t wait until I can finally read Crooked Kingdom!

3. The Reader by Traci Chee

The Reader

This book has been on my radar for quite awhile now so I’m very excited I can finally read it! It sounds super intriguing and I’ve also heard a lot of good things about it. I really hope to read it sooner rather than later!

4. A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

a-shadow-bright-and-burning

This is yet another book that has been on my radar for awhile now. Again, I’ve also heard a lot of good things about it and I’m looking forward to read it! Plus that cover is stunning!!

5-6. The Heart of Betrayal & The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

untitled

The Beauty of Darkness, the final book in the Remnant Chronicles trilogy, was published back in August and I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet! I plan on rereading the second book in the trilogy, The Heart of Betrayal, before going into the conclusion book because I don’t remember much of what happened in that book! I’m really looking forward to seeing how this series ends!

7. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova

Labyrinth Lost

I first heard about this book a couple months ago but only really became interested in reading it recently. It sounds super intriguing and I’m looking forward to picking it up!

8. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling

harry-potter-and-the-chamber-of-secrets-illustrated-edition

I preordered this book a few months ago and completely forgot it was coming out this month until I got an email from Amazon saying my order had been shipped. I really loved the last illustrated edition that came out in 2015 so I’m pretty sure I’ll love this one as well! I’m looking forward to rereading the story and seeing all the beautiful illustrations!

9. Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

gemina

I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book back in May and I absolutely loved it! Unfortunately, not all the final artwork was included in the ARC. I plan on rereading the finished copy when it comes out later this month so I get to enjoy the story all over again and experience all the final graphics, illustrations, and art!

10. Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

ever-the-hunted

This book has been on my radar for quite awhile now so I was very glad when I received an ARC of it from a trade last month! It sounds really interesting and has a stunning cover as well! I’m looking forward to reading it sometime soon.

11. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

nevernight

Jay Kristoff co-wrote two of my favorite books, Illuminae and Gemina, but I have yet to read a book that’s written by him alone. This book sounds super intriguing and the edition I got is super stunning! (My edition is the Goldsboro limited edition which is signed, numbered, and has the red stained pages.) I can’t wait to dive into this book!

12-13. Ten Thousand Skies Above You & A Million Worlds With You by Claudia Gray

untitled-2

The conclusion to the Firebird trilogy, A Million Worlds With You, is being published on November 1st and I’m really interested in seeing how the series ends! Again, I plan on rereading the previous book before diving into the conclusion. I really don’t remember anything that happened in Ten Thousand Skies Above You. Oops!

14. Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Like a River Glorious

I read the first book in this series, Walk on Earth a Stranger, a few months ago and I really enjoyed it! I was glad I didn’t have to wait too long until the sequel came out. I’m really looking forward to reading Like a River Glorious!

15-16. Frozen Tides & Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes

untitled-3

The Falling Kingdoms series is definitely one of my favorites! It’s one of those series that gets better and better with each book. Crystal Storm is coming out in December and I can’t wait! However, I don’t remember many of the things that happened in Frozen Tides so I plan on rereading it before diving into the fifth book of the series!


Are there any books you want to read before the year is up? Do we have any of the same books on our TBR lists? Let me know in the comments!

May TBR

may-tbr-2016

Hey everyone! This is a bit late, but I wanted to make a post talking about the books I want to read this month. Now that school is almost done (my last day is tomorrow), I’m going to have more time for reading. There are so many books I would like to read so I’m setting a pretty ambitious TBR for the month. I’m curious to see how much I’ll actually be able to read!


1. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Confessions of a Shopaholic

I actually already finished this book! However, I still wanted to include it in this list because I’m late in getting my post up and this book was part of my mental TBR. At least this way I know I’ve read at least one book from my TBR!

2. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything

I’ve been dying for this book to come out since 2014 when I read Morgan Matson’s other books. Now that it’s finally out, I can’t wait to read it! I’ll definitely be starting with this one, especially because I’m going to be attending one of Morgan’s book signings later this month!

3-4. The Wrath and the Dawn & The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn duology

I’m so excited to read The Rose and the Dagger, which just came out a couple of weeks ago. However, since I read The Wrath and the Dawn around a year ago, I don’t really remember everything that happened. That being said, I’m planning on rereading the first book before diving into the sequel. I’m so excited to see how this duology ends!

5. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Mist and Fury

Since this is a sequel, I might end up rereading the first book to refresh my memory. On the other hand, I might just look up a detailed summary of the first book so I can just dive on in! I’ve already read some slight spoilers (not on purpose) so I want to start reading it before I get spoiled even more!

6. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

The Star-Touched Queen

I’ve been wanting to read this book for awhile now so I hope I’m able to get to it this month! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it so I’m hoping I’ll like it as well!

7-11. The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan

The Heroes of Olympus series

This one is a maybe for now but I still wanted to include it. Since the first book in the continuation/spin-off series of the Heroes of Olympus series, The Hidden Oracle, just came out, I’ve been thinking about rereading this series. I know it’s probably not necessary to do before reading the new book, but I really loved the Heroes of Olympus series and I might want to reread it!

12. The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

The Hidden Oracle

I definitely want to read this book really soon! Like I’ve previously stated, I loved the Heroes of Olympus series and I’m dying to continue with this new series featuring some of my favorite characters. Even if I don’t end up rereading the Heroes of Olympus series, I really hope I’m able to get to this book sooner rather than later!

13. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

My Lady Jane

I currently have an ARC of this book on its way to me so I’m thinking of maybe reading it sometime this month! It comes out next month so I’m hoping to possibly finish it before its release date. I don’t know too much about it, but it sounds like it’s going to be a good book!


That’s it for my super ambitious TBR! What do you plan on reading this month? Let me know in the comments or link me to your May TBR post!

January TBR

january-tbr-2016

Hi everyone! I’m here with another monthly TBR. Last month, I did a terrible job at sticking to my TBR – I only ended up reading 3 out of 8 books on the list! This month, however, I truly hope I’m able to read what I say I want to read. But I guess we’ll have to see how that goes!


1. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I'll Meet You There

Well, technically I already finished this book. (And I really enjoyed it!) I had wanted to get this post up before finishing the book, but that didn’t end up happening. I decided to still put this book on the list because it was on my mental TBR. Hey, at least this way I know I’ve read at least one book from my TBR!

2-5. Falling Kingdoms, Rebel Spring, Gathering Darkness, and Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

Falling Kingdoms series

I finally have my hands on Frozen Tides, the fourth book in the Falling Kingdoms series! I thought about diving straight in, but the problem is… I don’t remember a lot from the previous books. So this month I plan on rereading books 1-3 and then reading Frozen Tides. I’m so excited!

6. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

Wolf by Wolf

I’ve had my eye on this book for the last few months and now I own it! I picked it up on a whim while at the bookstore today and I’m so glad I did. The premise sounds so intriguing. I’m looking forward to diving in!

7. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Walk on Earth a Stranger

This one is more of a maybe. I have it checked out from the library until the 18th so I hope to get to it before I have to return it. But if not, it’s no big deal if I have to read it another time.


That’s it for my TBR! I hope I’m able to read more than these 7 books, but these are the only ones I’m planning on right now. What books do you want to read this month? Let me know in the comments!

December TBR

december-tbr-2015

Last month was the first time I posted a TBR on my blog and I actually did a pretty good job at sticking to it! While I didn’t read all 11 books on the list, I didn’t stray too far. I read 7 of the books on the list and only read 3 additional books that weren’t on there. This month, I’m concentrating on trying to complete my Goodreads challenge. I have 8 books to go until I reach my goal of reading 100 books in 2015. I might be cutting it close because of finals and such this month, but I think I’ll make it!


Six of Crows

This was on last month’s TBR but I didn’t quite get to it. I was planning on reading this book after finishing the Grisha trilogy, but after reading book 2 of the series, I decided to skip the third and go straight into Six of Crows. I wasn’t that impressed with the first two books in the Grisha trilogy but I did enjoy the world. I’m looking forward to seeing more of it in Six of Crows!

TBR1

These two books were also on my TBR last month. I’m really excited to see how the Kane Chronicles ends! I really enjoyed the first two books in the series and I hope I feel the same about the third! As for The Sword of Summer, I’m looking forward to seeing if the book lives up to all the hype. Seeing as anything Rick writes is fantastic, I’m sure it will!

The House Without a Christmas Tree

This is one of my mom’s favorite books from her childhood and she’s been talking about it for so long that I want to read it too! It’s really short (only about 80 pages) so it will be a quick read. It’s also the perfect book for this time of the year!

Harry Potter Book 1 (Cover 7) Illustrated

I’m asking for this book for Christmas so if I get it, I’ll definitely be reading it this month! I’ve seen the book at Target and it’s so gorgeous – I would love to own it!

Frozen Tides

This book is also on my Christmas wishlist, but even if I don’t get it as a present, I’ll definitely be purchasing it. It’s coming out December 15th and I can’t wait! I loved the third book in the series so I’m excited to see what happens next!

You

  • You by Caroline Kepnes (You #1)

I received this book as an ebook last month (I think) but I didn’t get around to reading it yet. This book has such a creepy premise but it sounds really good! I hope I’m able to read it this month.

Heir of Fire

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to read this book this month but I’m putting it on the list anyway. I really need to continue on with this series! I reread the first book and read the second in August and I had planned on reading Heir of Fire, but it didn’t happen. Now that the fourth book’s out, I really need to get moving!
