April TBR

monthly tbr

After not getting a lot read last month (although what I did read was actually from my TBR for a change) I’m planning to keep it small this month too. I do a lot of my reading when I get quiet moments at home and lately, there haven’t been too many of them at home so I plan to take it a bit more casually this month and see how I get on.

Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman.
This is my current read and I think I’m about halfway through at this point so will definitely be finishing this up within the next few days with any luck.

Star Wars: Age of Resistance – Heroes by Tom Taylor.
My comic review for the month will be a follow on from last months, this time looking at the trade paperback collection focusing on the heroes from the sequel trilogy. This might change to The Rise Of Kylo Ren comics as I am due the last issue any day now so we’ll see how long I can resist and avoid spoilers.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston.
As you may have seen previously I was lucky enough to be gifted an arc copy of Bookish and the Beast, part three of the Once Upon a Con series which I plan to start this month. The few conventions I attend a year have been (understandably) postponed and it’s still unknown whether they will happen at all so I’m hoping I can live vicariously through these books. Not to mention I’ve been planning to read them for ages!

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston.
Being the second book in the Once Upon a Con series this follows the same reasoning as Geekerella. I’m not sure I’ll get to the sequel this month but I’m hopeful!

Have you read any of the books on this months TBR? If so let me know what you thought or if you’re reading any of these this month as well! What book are you hoping to get read this month? Also, are you finding you’re reading more or less during the lockdown?

TBR Thursday – June

It’s the first Thursday of the month so it’s time for TBR Thursday where I reveal the books I intend to read this month (hopefully!). It’s not a huge list this month and very subject to change as I’ve applied for some ARC’s that I’m hopeful I’ll be accepted for, I’m also not quite halfway through The Dark Phoenix Saga by Stuart Moore and Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett which I’m reading at the moment and I think six books in a month might be a little hopeful for me but we’ll see!

The Girl In Red by Christina Henry
As mentioned in yesterdays WWW Wednesday post this is a retelling of the classic Little Red Riding Hood tale with a twist. I’ve heard great things about it and this is my next read for sure, I’m so excited to get into it!

The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie
I fell in love with this book the moment I saw the arcs going out and read the synopsis, it sounds amazing and I think Tabby will almost certainly be a character I can identify with. Anxiety and book clubs? Sign me up.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Kelly Link and Robin Wasserman.
Despite my, not exactly falling out of love with Shadowhunters, but more my becoming less excited by I’m still eager to check out the short stories contained within the Ghosts of the Shadow Market collection. The past two Shadow hunter anthologies have been really enjoyable and I’m hoping maybe this will reignite some of my love for the series. This book may, however, get swapped out if I’m chosen to receive any of the ARC’s I’ve applied for.

D-Day Dog by Tom Palmer
I don’t often read a lot of books heavily featuring animals because I worry that something bad will happen to them (thanks Marley and Me and the Warrior Cats books) but something about D-Day Dog just called to me, especially the absolutely beautiful cover by Tom Clohosy Cole. 

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare
I NEED TO FINALLY FINISH THIS DAMNED BOOK. I started reading QOAD when it was released LAST YEAR. I found the physical book far too big and clunky to read so opted for the audiobook read by the lovely James Masters and…it’s not a bad book exactly it’s just so drawn out. It’s obviously a long book and some bits have been brilliant so far but some of it just drags so much. I have about an hour and a half left to listen to which I’m determined to get done this month no matter what!

There are so many books I’m trying to restrain myself from buying this month that I cannot explain. I’m also at an event on payday halfway through the month so need to restrain myself (hahahahahaha) as we’re also off to Legoland at the end of the month!

Are there any books on here you’ve read that you enjoyed? What are you hoping to get read this month?

TBR Thursday – September

41257907_544949169272346_2817201184115261440_nA new month is here and with it a new attempt at a monthly TBR. Being a mood reader it’s hard to stick to much of a TBR at times but it went fairly well last month so fingers crossed it goes just as well this month!

Currently Reading:
One Way by James Morden
I’m enjoying One Way but finding myself with a little less time to read now I’m writing so although I absolutely plowed through the first half the second half is taking me a little longer.

Whats Next?

Mirror Mirror by Cara Delevingne
One of my books from the summer secret santa exchange and the perfect way to round off my whodunnit phase and ease me back into YA for…

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
I started reading this after getting a copy in FairyLoot last this year but I just haven’t got back around to it, I have trouble reading hardbacks and this really slowed me down with it but I’m super stoked to finally get into it after realising there are dragons.

Figure by Mazzy

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli
The sequel but not sequel to The Last Namsara, I was lucky enough to be offered an advance copy of this book and a spot on the blog tour, the release date for The Caged Queen is September 25th though so I better get a move on, especially if I want to read the first book in the Iskari series first!

Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I keep going to start this book and getting distracted by something else but with Vengeful coming out in September as well it’s finally time to stop dawdling around and get this book read! Vicious like Nevernight is a book that seems like it will really appeal to me and that always makes me wary of books which is ludicrous I’m aware but like Nevernight (which I’ve also still not read) I’m worried that I’ve managed to over hype the book for myself so I’ve held off on it. I’ve already preordered Vengeful so lets hope I’m right and love Vicious.

Also featuring sneak peek of Overlord sampler by Sian Jefferson (more info soon!)

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
After reading the first few chapters I knew I would love this book but as part of a series during a time when I was really trying to not start a series it got left on the shelf for a bit longer. Now it seems I’ve left it so long that the TV show is coming out in around 19 days so I figure this was another book I needed to get a move on with. I’m hoping I’ve read enough to be able to at least watch the first episode of the show though as I’m sure there’s almost no way I’ll get through all of these books in time. I can dream though right?

None of these are particularly small books and the newest (and last) season of The Originals has just appeared on Netflix so I think I might need some serious luck to get through all of these books in less than a month so wish me luck and let me know what you are reading this month and if we have any of the same reads!

TBR TAG – Booktube

28117424_10155040868531581_751126403_n.jpgAt the beginning of the year I decided I had way too many books to read still, seriously my TBR is HUGE, so big in fact it takes up three shelves and most the top of a dresser. Upon realising just how many books I still had to read and what great books had gotten lost in the dreaded stacks upon stacks that just kept growing I made the decision that this would be the year that I finally read them. Well, as many as I can manage. I still have ARC’s to read on top of this along with a few books coming out this year that I absolutely cannot miss (I know excuses, excuses!).  Excuses or not I figured that this TBR tag would help remind me of some of the great books I still had sitting on my shelves (mostly) waiting to be read.
