October 2017 | TBR

I love reading books in the month of October. Specifically paranormal or creepy books. It just fits with the whole vibe of the season and especially with Halloween. I am not going to be able to finish all of these, but I these are the ones I am going to be picking from.

Night Film by Marish Pessl

The Girl With The Gifts by M.R Carey

The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Top Ten Tuesday| Top Books On My Fall TBR


This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is The Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR! I have been putting a lot of books aside waiting for fall/winter. Fall books are those that are either fantasy/paranormal or thrillers!

The Magicians by Lev Grossman

I have been meaning to read this book for a long time. I have heard such good things and really want to pick it up!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K Rowling

I know, how have I not read this yet. Life has gotten in the way the past few years and I never picked them up when I was younger, but it is time.

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawerence

Because dark fantasy series are best read in the fall!

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

This has been on my radar for awhile. It looks like a good fantasy!

The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

This is about boarding schools. I thought it gave that real fall vibe with the back to school.

Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

I just feel like reading a YA Western is appropriate in the fall. I have never read anything like this and cant wait to pick it up!

Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

Because I started this series and I am already hooked. It is a great urban fantasy that not only has a great cast of characters but an interesting plot and overall story.

Night Film by Marisha Pessl

I think this would be a good thriller going into the halloween season!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I have picked this book up multiple time in order to start it and haven’t actually gotten around to it. It seemed like a good book to read in the fall.

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey

Fall is the time to read weird and creepy books.

What are some books you plan/ want to read this fall? 

August 2017 | TBR

This is a little late in the month, but I guess not too late. I had posted this on instagram and twitter, but decided I would make a post as well.

Here is to reading a lot in the month of August!

Lover Revealed by J.R Ward

Slaughter-House Five by Kurt Vonnegut

Stray by Rachel Vincent

The Bear and the Nightingale by Kathrine Arden

Top 5 Wednesday | Books You Want to Finally Read in 2017

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 Finally Read in 2017

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 really want 2017 to be that year that I get to those dusty books sitting on my TBR.

♣ Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch 

2890090

This book I have been putting off for awhile waiting for the 4th book in the series to be released. I love this series and miss it.

♣ Bloodlines by Richelle Mead 

8709527

After I finished the Vampire Academy series I wanted to jump right into this series, but didn’t want to let go of the series. I think it is time to pick this up and read it because I miss the world and the characters.

♣ Jet by Jay Crownover

17204860

I started this series last year and would love to continue it before I move on with the Saints of Denver series.

♣ City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

23909755

I received this for review at the beginning of the year and I have still not picked it up. I was so excited for it and somehow it kept getting put off. I need to review it and submit so I can receive more review books.

♣ Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

25422234

I bought this at the very beginning of the year. RBG is my hero and I think she is an amazing woman. I need to get on reading this ASAP!

What books do you finally want to get around to reading in 2017?

Bout of Books 15 | Goals & TBR


BoB15-200x200

For those that don’t know what Bout of Books is… here you go:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

This will be my fourth time participating and I am really excited. For the most part there is something about read-a-thons that motivate me to actually read more. I have a very ambitious January TBR already but picked out some different books for this TBR to mix it up. I picked out some shorter books and books that I need to review, but ones from my January TBR might show up as well. 

Goals:
♠ I am hoping to read at least 100 pages a day.
♠ Finish at least three books (but hoping I finish more!)
♠ Update as much as possible (via my blog and twitter)
♠ Share quotes and thoughts on books throughout the week.

 

Books:

Scardust by Suzanne van Rooyen
Rise of ISIS by Jay Sekulow
Sands of Time by Christine Church
No Rest For The Wicked by Dane Cobain
♠ Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

I picked up The Girl of Fire and Thorns in November and was planning on binging the whole trilogy. I did not quite get around to that, but I want to continue with this trilogy and finish this series towards my series reads goals!

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

I have been wanting to read something by Sanderson so bad. What a better time to pick it up and read it. I am participating in a read-a-long for this book as well with some fabulous people on twitter!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

I have really been missing the Vampire Academy world and Mead’s writing. With her new series starting this year I want to get into more of her books!

The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan 

I have been really wanting to get into more adult books and specifically historical fiction. I also wanted to read more award winning books this year and this one jumped out at me.

What books are you planning on reading in January? 

2016 TBR Reading Challenge

2015 BOOKS READ-4

So with being gone and too busy to do much in the bookish world this past year, I have decided it is time that I start to tackle my TBR pile and cut down that huge number of 280 down. I went through and made a whole list of the books I own and have not read and it was just too crazy. From there I narrowed it down to a list of 30 books and a few authors that I need to read this year. I obviously need to read more than just these, but these are ones I have been putting off for far too long or I just need to read in 2016.

⇒ Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

⇒ Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi

⇒ A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
