End Of Year Reading | TBR

I have quite a few books I would like to get to before the end of the year. I did make a post about the top 5 I want to read before 2019 , but I am hoping to read more than 5 and I did already finish one of these books! I technically need to read 15+ books to reach my goal this year and although I am not sure I will meet it I want to go out trying! So although it is over ambitious these are the books I am hoping to read this December ! (including ones I have started, but haven’t finished)

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Grip of the Shadow Plague by Brandon Mull

Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull

Keys to the Demon Prison by Brandon Mull

The Beast is An Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale

Untamed by A.G Howard

Charged by Jay Crownover

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Specials by Scott Westerfeld

Emperor Mage by Tamora Pierce

Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

 

Do we want to take bets on home many of these I actually read?

2018 Beat The Backlist Challenge |November Update

I have some really big goals for myself with this new year, both personally and with regards to books. This will be the first year that I will be in one place (hopefully) not juggling school or the constant traveling I have experience that past few years. I am really trying to focus on myself and trying to limit distractions and drama. One of my biggest book goals next year is to read the books I own and definitely catch up on series I am so far behind on or that I need to read. (Shoutout to Alex @ Booksy Daisy for posting her tbr and convincing me to do this!) Beat the Backlist hosted by Novel knight is the perfect challenge. (I do better when I am able to mark off a list so challenges work so well for me) Now I cannot make promises that the books I list are going to be the ones I actually read, but it is the goal to get these ones specifically. I am setting myself the goal of 50 books! I haven’t decided what I want my year goal to be, but with the hopes of tackling the books on my shelf I definitely want to focus more on the backlist and older books!

Reading & Blogging Plans |Thanksgiving Weekend

Although I still have to work the majority of the Holiday week/weekend, I still plan on getting a ton of reading and blogging done. I have been tossing around the idea of doing blogmas so I want to take some of this weekend to do some pre-planing and creating the content to be posted. I want to start making more of a commitment to blogging again, I have kind of let it get away from me. I also want to start planning my end of the year reading, I have 8 more books to read to make my reading goal for the year.

My main reading focus this week/end is going to be reading the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. I have read the first one and I am about 1/3 of the way through the second one. I received the first 2 books in the spin-off series and I need to complete the original series first. I also got them from the library and have 2.5 more weeks to read them. I also need to finish reading The Crowns of Croswald by D.E Night which has been taking me awhile because I’m annotating in the book thats being passed around in a traveling book club. I am hoping to finish listening to the final in The Thousandth Floor trilogy by Katherine McGee, The Towering Sky ! Once I finish that I am hoping that either the audiobook of Pretties by Scott Westerfeld will be ready so I can continue to reread this series and if it is not I am planning on listening to From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon!

 

What are you planning on reading this holiday week/weekend? Have you read any of these books? Do you have any ideas/suggestions for my blogmas posts?

Top 5 Wednesday | Books I Want To Read Before 2019

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey (YouTube, Goodreads) and if you would like to join, here is the link for the Goodreads group with all the information.

This week’s topic is Books You Want to Read Before 2019

There are so many books that I have been creating monthly TBRs or writing down that I want to read forever and just haven’t gotten to them. I am proud of how much reading I have been doing this year because the past few years have been rough, but there were so many books I wanted to read this year that I have yet to get to. Here are the top 5 I want to read before the new year.

♣ Fablehaven Series by Brandon Mull

This is cheating because it is 5 books just itself, but I get review books for the spin off series that I need to read and dont think I can read them without reading these ones first. 

♣ Untamed by A.G Howard

I am not sure why I have not read this collection of short stories yet, I think because I didnt want it to be all over. I absolutely love the Splintered series and adore AG Howards writing. But with a new book coming out by AG Howard and a short story on Morpheus coming out soon I think it is time.

♣ Specials by Scott Westerfeld 

I have been working on rereading this series so that I could jump into Westerfeld’s new book. Even though it is not a spin off just a book in the world, it has been forever since I have read these books and the reread was due.

♣ Emperor Mage by Tamora Pierce

I started the year by reading the first book in this series. It was a goal to read the whole series this year and I have slightly failed at it, but there is still time.

♣ Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

I miss this world and need more Mercy!

Bonus: Books I Have started and want to finish before the new year! 

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

The Beast Is An Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale

Charged by Jay Crownover

Vacation Reading | TBR

So usually I share my TBRs on instagram lately, but thought I would share this time on the blog as well! I am going camping in South Dakota with my parents and although we have a packed schedule of sight seeing and doing the whole touristy thing, I am hoping to do lots of reading as well! I will have a lot of time in the car as we travel and have some audiobooks as wells as physical/ebooks I really want to read!

♦ Turtles All The Way Down by John Green 
I have started this book and I have enjoyed it so far. I have just had book ADD and have been juggling like 10 books so it has been put to the side lately. I am really hoping to finish reading this.

♦ Special Beta Reading Project! 
One of my lovely book friends wrote a book and I have been beta reading her book! I have made it a little over halfway through it so far and I am really enjoying it! I am going to finish this on vacation for sure!

♦ Charged & Riveted by Jay Crownover
The past few months I have been devouring the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover and immediately jumped into the spin off series Saints of Denver. Charged is thf e second book in the spin off series and I am about 1/3 of the way through the audiobook! I can read in the car and we have a 9 hour drive so I am hoping to listen to a few audiobooks!

♦ Keeper of the Bees by Meg Kassel
Earlier in the year I read the first book in this series Black Birds of the Gallows. I am interested to see what Kassel does with this story as I was not aware there would be another book. It is also part of my ARC August TBR since it comes out in September!

♦ Afterimage by Naomi Huges
This is also an ARC I received that comes out in September. I do not know much about it but it seems interesting. It is also a physical book and sometimes they are easier for me to read over ebooks.

♦ The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
I know I cant believe I havent read this book either. With the release of the movie so close I need to read this book ASAP!

I will only be gone for 8 days but you can never be too prepared right? Have you read any of these books? I would love to hear thoughts or know what you are reading!
