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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

April TBR

Happy April, and Happy Easter for those who celebrate it.

I haven’t done a TBR in a while, and March wasn’t quite a good reading month because I got busy. So here is my TBR for April.

Obsidio by: Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I have waited so long for this book. I loved both Illuminae and Gemina, so I am excited to see how this series ends.

This was another book I was very excited about since it was announced. I was suppose to see her in Boston, but the snow kept me going, I at least got the book personalized for me.

Wicked Like a Wildfire by: Lana Popovic

Image result for wicked like a wildfire

My girlfriend gave me this book for Valentine’s Day and I still haven’t read it. I feel bad because I got her Legend and kept asing if she has read it yet.

Hunted by: Meagan Spooner

Image result for hunted by meagan spooner

A sort of Beauty and the Beast retelling. Its a book I really wished I got to back in 2017, but it is sitting on my bookshelf.

Dove Arising by Karen Bao

This is an underrated book that I heard some good things about. I got it from the Diversity in YA tumblr and it sounded interesting.

February TBR

Happy February everyone,

Wow I can’t believe how its already February.

First currently reading:

Zenith by: Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

Yeah, this is sort of cheating since I am about half way through the book and I am enjoying it so far.

Now for my TBR for the month of February

Odd and True By Cat Winters

This was a random pick up from by library. I will admit that it is mostly for the cover. From the premise it reminds me of a gender swapped Supernatural set in the 1800s, with two sisters fighting demons.

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

This is for Hype or Like Friday, and I am so glad that this book was picked. I heard so many good things about this book.

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsey Ely

I always love a good western and I always keep thinking that more YA should be based around the Old West. While it is not technically The Old West, hopefully it will have that western feel to it.

Bitch Planet Vol. 1 and 2

This was also a random pickup from my library and I heard some great things about it. I am also trying to read more graphic novels this year.

The Roanoke Girl by Amy Engel

This is a book outside of my usual genres since I don’t usually read mystery novels but the premise caught my attention and I could read a bit more mysteries.

Those are the books I plan on reading in February. What books do you plan on reading in February? Let me know in the comments below.

 

January 2018 TBR

Hello everyone, and hope you guys are enjoying the start of 2018. It is snowing right now in Boston, but after living here for years I just seem to roll with it.

This is my TBR for the month of January,

Dear Martin by: Nic Stone

My very lovely girlfriend gave me this book for Christmas, so she knows what I like. I think I also put it on my books I hope to read by the end of the year. Well since I didn’t have the time, this seems like a great book to start the year off.

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

Just judging by the cover, this looks like a more bad ass version of Sailor Moon. I have heard some great things about this book. I also like the inclusion of Chinese folklore and mythology that the book has.

Long Way Down by: Jason Reynolds

This will be my second book by Jason Reynolds, the first being Miles Morales: Spider Man. The book is mainly told through poetry form which will be a welcomed change from what I usually read.

Batman: Nightwalker by: Marie Lu

One of my favorite superheroes being written by one of my favorite authors. I am really excited to read about her interpretation of Batman.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

I have seen this on a lot of most anticipated lists, and with this being the first YA release of 2018, this should be a good book to start the year with. I also love stories about the fae.

Those are the books I plan to read in January, it maybe subject to change if  I discover new books. What books do you plan of reading in January? Let me know in the comments below.

November TBR

Hello all,

WIth October coming to a close it is only fitting that I give by TBR for the month of November. I may not read all of these and I may add some books as the month goes on.

They Both Die at the End by: Adam Silvera

Because I am a masochist. I read his previous two books and they were both amazing books that really emotionally gripping and from what I heard this one is too.

Renegades by: Marissa Meyer

One of my favorite auto-buy authors, I am very excited to be reading this. This is one of my most anticipated of 2017 and the fact that it deals with superheros just makes it more awesome. I am a huge fan of her Lunar Chronicles series and I am very excited to read this new series.

Timekeeper by Tara Sim

As a Whovian I am always a fan of time travel, and this seems like a great time travel book with a lot of Victorian elements. I have heard great things about this book and I am excited to read it.

Beasts Made of Night by: Tochi Onyebuchi

At Boston Book Festival over the weekend, I heard him speak about his book and it made me want to read it. It is an Nigerian-inspired fantasy novel. Also the premise sounds really interesting with the use of sin eaters.

Rebel Seoul by: Axie Oh

The author had me at Pacific Rim meets Korean dramas. I am a fan of Pacific Rim and I always like stories with big mech type vehicles. I heard great things about this book and I am excited to read it.

Those are my TBR for November. Do you have any suggestions to add to my TBR? Let me know in the comments below.
