October TBR

Hello everyone and a Happy October to you all,

I know I am a little late for this but here is my TBR for the month of October, it may be subject to change depending if I see a new cool book.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

At the Boston Teen Author Festival I met Ashley Poston and from hearing her talk about her book made me want to read it. I know its been out for quite a while. I also am trying to expand my reading habits, and this maybe the book to do it.

Invictus by Ryan Graudin

This book had me at “the crew from Firefly with time travel”. I could always use a good time travel story. Earlier this year I read Wolf by Wolf, which I really liked so I am excited to read more of her work.

A Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

I heard nothing but great things about this book. I also tend to like historical fiction, and just reading the premise alone makes me want to read the book.

All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis

This is another premise that grabbed my attention, mainly because of the concept for paying for every word you speak. I meant to get the book at Boston Teen Author Festival but it was sold out. I also liked hearing the author talk extensively about the book and its premise.

 

Those are the books I plan to read for the month of October, I may add a few more if some catch my eye. What books do you plan on reading for the month of October? Let me know in the comments below.

September TBR

Hello everyone,

I feel as if August wasn’t a good reading month for me I only read two books this month. Hopefully September I could get out of my reading slump and start reading some books again.

I hope to read these books in the month of September. It may be subject to change.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by: Leigh Bardugo

I was always a fan of the Wonder Woman comics growing up and I really loved the movie when it came out over the summer. So of course I am excited that one of my favorite authors has written a book about Wonder Woman. I never read a comic book hero in book form so this should be amazing.

Warcross by Marie Lu

Of course, Marie Lu being one of my auto-buy authors I am very excited to read this book. I loved her Legend trilogy and her Young Elites trilogy. I also like that she isn’t afraid to write new genres with every series she writes.

Beauty Queens by: Libby Bray

When news broke out of an all-female Lord of the Flies, my first thought was of course “why not adapt Beauty Queens?” This book was on my TBR for quite a while and the premise is really interesting. Hopefully if more buzz comes out about this book it could lead Hollywood into adapting this novel instead of remaking Lord of the Flies.

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

I remember reading Truthwitch, in the beginning of the year and loving it so of course I want to read the sequel. Especially since Truthwitch ended on a cliffhanger I want to know what happened next.

Those are my September TBR. What books are your reading this September? Let me know in the comments below.

August TBR

Hello everyone,

sorry for the lack of posts, I was in a bit of a reading slump and now I am hopefully back into reading.

I haven’t done this in a while. but I wanted to do a TBR for August, and hopefully I will actually read these books.

Dividing Eden by: Joelle Charbonneau

Twins Carys and Andreus were never destined to rule Eden. With their older brother next in line to inherit the throne, the future of the kingdom was secure.

But appearances—and rivals—can be deceiving. When Eden’s king and crown prince are killed by assassins, Eden desperately needs a monarch, but the line of succession is no longer clear. With a ruling council scheming to gain power, Carys and Andreus are faced with only one option—to take part in a Trial of Succession that will determine which one of them is worthy of ruling the kingdom.

As sister and brother, Carys and Andreus have always kept each other safe—from their secrets, from the court, and from the monsters lurking in the mountains beyond the kingdom’s wall. But the Trial of Succession will test the bonds of trust and family.

With their country and their hearts divided, Carys and Andreus will discover exactly what each will do to win the crown. How long before suspicion takes hold and the thirst for power leads to the ultimate betrayal?

Shadowshaper by: Daniel Jose Older

22295304

Sierra Santiago was looking forward to a fun summer of making art, hanging out with her friends, and skating around Brooklyn. But then a weird zombie guy crashes the first party of the season. Sierra’s near-comatose abuelo begins to say “Lo siento” over and over. And when the graffiti murals in Bed-Stuy start to weep…. Well, something stranger than the usual New York mayhem is going on.

Sierra soon discovers a supernatural order called the Shadowshapers, who connect with spirits via paintings, music, and stories. Her grandfather once shared the order’s secrets with an anthropologist, Dr. Jonathan Wick, who turned the Caribbean magic to his own foul ends. Now Wick wants to become the ultimate Shadowshaper by killing all the others, one by one. With the help of her friends and the hot graffiti artist Robbie, Sierra must dodge Wick’s supernatural creations, harness her own Shadowshaping abilities, and save her family’s past, present, and future. 

Windwitch by Susan Dennard

29939390

After an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak—which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.

When the Bloodwitch Aeduan discovers a bounty on Iseult, he makes sure to be the first to find her—yet in a surprise twist, Iseult offers him a deal. She will return money stolen from him, if he locates Safi. Now they must work together to cross the Witchlands, while constantly wondering, who will betray whom first?

After a surprise attack and shipwreck, Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. Alone in a land of pirates, every moment balances on a knife’s edge—especially when the pirates’ next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.

The Upside of Unrequited by: Becky Albertalli

30653853

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back. 

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Those are just the few books for my August TBR. Do you have any suggestions to get me out of my slump? What’s on your TBR for August? Let me know in the comments below.

 

May TBR

Hello all,

I kinda want to give myself reading goals for the month so I am listing my May TBR. It will hopefully help me with my reading goals and with summer approaching I will have more time to read them and hopefully enjoy them

The Registry by Shannon Stoker

I bought this week a while ago and it was sitting on my nook for a while. I am currently reading it and so far it is good.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses, surprised me last summer and while her work is very hit or miss. I think the characters are much better developed than in The Throne of Glass series.

 

Never Never by Brianna R. Shrum

As some of you know, I am a fan of fairy tale retelling or twisted fairy-tales told from a different perspective. This one is the story of Peter Pan told from the point of view of a young Captain Hook. I read the sample and it hooked me in.

Some Boys by Patty Blount

A few weeks ago, one of the Top 5 Wednesday topics was books on hard topics and this book came up a lot. While the subject matter may be triggering (sexual assault), I have heard great things about it.

The Rose Society by Marie Lu

The sequel to the Young Elites, and with how the first book ended, I really want to know what happens next and seeing Adelina’s going further into darkness and how she gets there.

My goal is at least 5 books this month, and if you have any other suggestions let me know.
