August TBR

Happy August everyone,

Wow, where did this summer go. I realized that I haven’t done a TBR in a while mainly because I have had a reading slump, but now I am trying to get back into reading.

I read the first volume recently and what can I say, I am in love. The world building is amazing, I never read any graphic novel like that before.

I have heard some great things about this author. I saw Courting Darkness at bookstores but realized that I may have to read the other books, to get into the world and why not start at the beginning.

Finally dipping my toe into the world of Naomi Novik. I have heard so many good things about this author, that I have to start finally reading her books, instead of putting it on my TBR.

I picked this at a bookstore warehouse sale, and just judging by the premise alone I decided to pick it up. Another book I have heard good things about.

I bought this last September and it was sitting on my bookshelf, not being touched. Now I have decided to read it. The premise is strong, dealing with mages and how one has so much power that it could threaten an empire.

That is my TBR for August. What are your August reads? Let me know in the comments below.

June TBR

Happy June everyone,

The summer is about to begin, and there is so many books I want to read this month and I want to put together a TBR to help me keep track. It may be subject to change, depending on what I would want to read

When I was at an author talk with Claire Legrand discussing Kingsbane, A.C Gaughen was also at the talk, and I really enjoyed hearing talk about the different aspects of elemental magic in their books.

This was a book I kept seeing at bookstores and would it always be one of those books I would pick it up and put it back down, and then recently I decided to actually buy the book, and the premise is interesting, dealing with Earth after the aliens invade.

This is a graphic novel series that I recently got into, and it deals with a pretigous prep school with a very dark secret, and a bunch of misfits who are starting to figure out whats going on. This is one I would highly recommend.

I know, Finale just came out, but I realized that I haven’t read Legendary yet, and heard so many good things about the book, and I really enjoyed Caraval.

Earlier in the spring, this author came to Boston, and the book was always on my TBR, because its a fantasy dealing with illegitimate children with a lot of mystery.

That’s my TBR for the month of June. What books do you plan on reading in June? Let me know in the comments below.

March wrap up/April TBR

Wow, March is almost over and spring is finally coming.

I am happy to share what I read for the month of March and also what I plan on reading in April.

What I read in March.

This year I started reading graphic novels again, and I am enjoying them. With Paper Girls calling it a girl version of Stranger Things would be an understatement. I kinda want to talk about it, but I don’t want to go into spoiler entire. But this is a series I am happy to recommend to people.

Another graphic novel that I picked up from the library sort of like a prep school that is not what it seems but the mystery of the first volume is enough to keep me intrigued.

In my quest to discover Cassandra Clare and the world of the shadowhunter universe. After reading the first three books in the Mortal Instruments series and really enjoyed them, but I love the Infernal devices so far. It was nice to see a good prequel to the shadow hunter universe.

Image result for city of fallen angels

Also in my quest for reading Cassandra Claire I read City of Fallen Angels. While not my favorite in the series so far the ending had my intigued.

Image result for the girls of paper and fire

Lives up to the hype! This was one of my favorites of this year. A Review will be coming up later this week.

April TBR

These are the books I plan to read in April

Image result for ancillary justice

As a Sci Fi fan, it surprises me that I never read any Ann Leckie. I heard nothing but great things about this book, and she is an author I have been dying to read.

Image result for gilded wolves

A couple years back I read A Star Touched Queen, and I enjoyed it, and I have been meaning to pick up the series again so I am excited to see a new series by her, which is different from Star Touched Queen but I am excited to read it.

Image result for good omens

A saw the trailer to the show, and I immediately wanted to read it. It is hard to believe that I still never read Neil Gaiman before and I hope this will be a good one.

Image result for on the come up angie thomas

I read the Hate U Give and absolutely loved it, and I want to see Angie Thomas’s next book.

Image result for the court of broken knives

Okay, so this was a cover purchase. It was a used book I picked up at my local bookstore, and its a dark fantasy that I always love.

Those are the books I read in March and may read in April. What’s on your April TBR, let me know in the comments below.

March 2019 TBR

Happy March everyone,

It has been a while since I did a TBR and I kinda want to give myself a reading list for this month. I have a lot of books planned this month that I will hopefully read this month.

Image result for The emperors blade

I saw this at a bookstore, read the synopsis and picked it up automatically. It deals with an emperor’s death, and his daughter and two sons must deal with the consequences and their father’s last wish. It looks like a very complex fantasy novel which I am excited to read.

Image result for grim lovelies

This is a book I got from an Amazon gift card that I got for Christmas, and it also seemed very interesting, and of course the Parisian setting isn’t bad either. It looks like a very unique premise with “beasties”.

Image result for girl of paper and fire

I finally was put off the waiting list for this book. It was a book I missed in 2018, and I really want to read this. I am trying to read a lot more diverse fantasy, and this seems like my cup of tea.

Image result for paper girls vol 1

I finished reading Y: The Last Man, and I really enjoyed. I also read some of Saga and really loving it. I was told that since I am a fan of Brian K. Vaughan’s writing and was recommended this book.

Image result for eternal empires comic vol 1

Okay, I have to admit, this was a cover check out from the library. I mean just look at that cover and tell me that you wouldn’t want to read it. It also has a cool premise dealing with warring kingdoms which I am always happy to read.

 

 

November 2018 TBR

Happy November everyone, and for my writers Happy Nanowrimo!

I haven’t done a TBR in a while, and since for the past month I have been buying a lot of books I think it is high time that I read some of them and give me my own reading schedule.

This maybe subject to change.

Image result for what if it's us

This maybe cheating, since I am currently reading it and I am half way through and really enjoying it so far. I love Ben and Arthur.

Image result for half a king

This author was on my TBR for such a long time, it is kinda strange that I haven’t read any of his books, especially with me being a Game of Thrones fan.

Image result for spinning silver

Another confession, I never read anything by Naomi Novik, and I saw this in a little book sale and I had to buy it. It looks like a Rumpelstiltskin retelling, and if you know me, you know I love my fairy tale retellings.

Image result for archenemies

Yeah, yeah, I know. But if you have been following me, you know I am a Marissa Meyer fan. She is an autobuy author for me. I loved Renegades so much and I was very excited to find out that it will be a trilogy.

Image result for empire of storms

I know, I am late for the party, especially since Kingdom of Ash just came out, but I do enjoy most of her work. I also did a good job at avoiding spoilers for myself, so I have a clear head on.

Image result for lady midnight

I am finally going to break down, and read Cassandra Clare. I did read a bit of the Mortal Instruments series, but never got back to it. I did hear some good things about Lady Midnight, and it would be nice to read a series back to back without the waiting in between.

That’s me TBR for the month of November. What books do you plan on reading this month? Let me know in the comments below! I also wish the best of luck to those participating in Nanowrimo.

September 2018 TBR

Hello all,

Where did the summer go. I can’t believe that it is already September and almost time for fall weather.

Even though I haven’t really been keeping up with my Monthly TBRs I hope that September will be a good reading month.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Image result for daughter of smoke and bone

I read Strange the Dreamer and I absolutely loved it. I also realized that I never read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, even though it was on my TBR for quite a while now. I plan on reading the trilogy to get me hyped for Muse of Nightmares.

Fables Book One

Image result for fables book 1

This is a graphic novel in which fairy tale live within the modern world. It reminded me of the show Grimm, which was a highly underrated show.

The Queens of Innis Lear

Image result for the queens of innis lear

I saw this at a book store and I was already intrigued by a premise in which sisters battle over a throne.

Hunting Prince Dracula

Image result for hunting prince dracula

I read Stalking Jack the Ripper last year and loved it. I was very excited that a sequel was written, and I know the third book is about to come out . I really like the mystery aspect of the book, and it makes it feel like a film noir.

Fatal Throne

Image result for fatal throne

I love the aspect of this book, which is basically the wives side of the story regarding Henry VIII, which we never really hear about in the history books and hearing from people like Anna Boleyn and Jane Seymour.

Thats my TBR for the month of September. It may be subject to change, I may add a few more. What do you plan on reading in the month of September? Let me know in the comments below.

JULY TBR

Happy July everyone,

I haven’t done this in a while but I do want to share with you all my TBR for the month of July. It’s usually subject to change.

Image result for furyborn claire legrand

Ever since I read the synopsis I wanted to read this book. A fantasy book that crosses time periods. That’s already sounds awesome, and I heard great things about it.

Image result for all american boys

I had the pleasure of meeting both of these authors at BookCon. Also since I was a fan of both Dear Martin and The Hate U Give dealing with issues of police violence and racism.

Image result for wildcard marie lu

I got this arc at a talk with Sabaa Tahir and I was so excited. Warcross one of my favorite books of last year and I am so excited to see how this ends.

Image result for deadly class

Yes, its a graphic novel, I have been on a kick these days, and this one sounds amazing dealing with crime families and assassins, what more can you ask for.

Those are the books on my July TBR. What books do you plan on reading for the month of July? Let me know in comments below.
