April Reading List

Hellooo. I’m back with another TBR. March turned out to be a great reading month and I aim to continue the trend in April. I’ve been on a huge fantasy kick lately and I’d like to knockout a bunch of fantasy reads that I own before buying more. Plus, I have a few library books I need to get to. Hence, a mildly ambitious April reading list. Enjoy!

The Name of the
by Patrick Rothfuss | Goodreads
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss | Goodreads
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes | Goodreads
Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes | Goodreads

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton | Goodreads
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard | Goodreads
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski | Goodreads
The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss | Goodreads

I also plan to continue listening to my Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets audiobook.

What do you plan to read this month?

Thanks for reading.



March Reading List

Hellooo. Today I’m sharing my March Reading List, or March TBR. I’ve postponed this post several times because I’ve been in a very indecisive reading mood and have been flipping back and forth between multiple books and genres as of late. Regardless, I thought I’d compose an outline of sorts for the month and go from there. Last month, I strayed far from my TBR, so I’m playing March by ear! Here’s what I am tentatively planning on reading in March.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling | Goodreads
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë | Goodreads
The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo | Goodreads: 1, 2, 3
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare | Goodreads
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes | Goodreads
Red Rising by Pierce Brown | Goodreads

I really don’t know what I’ll want to pick up this month, but I’m sure I’ll get to a few of these. I could easily end up marathoning the Harry Potter series, or I may continue my WWII historical fiction kick from last month. Who even knows. NOT ME.

What are you planning to read in March? 

Thanks for reading.



February Reading List

Helloooo. Today I’m sharing my February reading list, or February “to be read” (TBR) list. In the past, I’ve had a bad tendency of not sticking to my TBR lists because I get book cravings and mood-read and my interests change often throughout the month. But it’s a new year and I’m trying the monthly TBR list out once more. I did pretty well with sticking to my TBR last month, so here’s what I’m hoping to read in February.

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin | Goodreads
This is one of my top 10 books to read in 2016. I started it in January and want to finish it this month!

11788811A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin | Goodreads
My goal this month is to START the second installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. These books are long and complex, so reading them is time-consuming. But I will persevere! Slow and steady wins the race, and I’m pacing myself with this series like it’s a marathon.

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie | Goodreads
Peter Pan is one of my favorite childhood stories. I’ve read and watched many adaptations, but have never read the original story! I think after the exhaustion of reading A Game of Thrones, a light children’s book will be just what I need.

10194157Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | Goodreads
Last month, I read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and LOVED IT. It is one of my all-time favorite books, and will definitely make my bests list this year. While you definitely don’t need to read the Grisha trilogy to understand and enjoy Six of Crows, I’m interested to learn more about the Grisha world. Hopefully I’ll get to Shadow and Bone this month!

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard | Goodreads
Unlike most of the book blogging/vlogging community, I’m not screaming mad to read this novel. The main reason I’m interested in Truthwitch is that Sarah J. Maas blurbed it and gave it a raving review, which is to be expected given that Maas and Dennard are best friends. I think I’ve remained pretty immune to the hype, so I’m going into this novel with few expectations; I’m just hoping to enjoy it.

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson | Goodreads
The Kiss of Deception was one of my favorite books of 2015, and it’s taken me way too long to get to its sequel. The Remnant Chronicles is a fast-paced fantasy series filled with plot twists, royalty, assassins, and magic. I’m hoping to see more world-building in the second book and I can’t wait to see what twists Pearson has in store for these characters!

Well there you have it! Those are the six books I’m hoping to read in February.
What are you planning to read this month? I’d love to know! 

Thanks for reading.


January Reading List

Helloooo. Today I’m sharing my January reading list, or January “to be read” (TBR) list. In the past, I’ve had a bad tendency of not sticking to my TBR lists because I get book cravings and read based on mood and change interests often throughout the month. But it’s a new year and I’m going to try the monthly TBR list out once more. Here’s what I’m hoping to read in January.

865The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho | Goodreads
Hehe, I cheated. I actually finished this novel over the weekend. But it was one of my top books to read in 2016 so I got right to it. My review will be up next week!

15783514The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman | Goodreads
I actually have no idea what this book is about. Regan over at Peruse Project read this in 2014 and liked it a lot, and my mom read it more recently and recommended it to me. All I know is that it’s haunting, beautiful, and open-ended.

18243700The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas | Goodreads
I read the Throne of Glass prequel novellas when they were originally released in ebook form. I finally bought the bind-up physical edition last year and slowly made my way through the first two and a half novellas. I need to finish this re-read!

Okay, so here’s where I start having trouble. The three books above I am SURE I want to read this month. I’m setting a goal (sneak peak at my upcoming 2016 reading goals post) to read four books per month this year. But I can’t pick a definitive fourth book. So instead, I’ll list the books I’m considering and hopefully pick from them later in the month.

  • Passenger by Alexandra Bracken | Goodreads
  • The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson | Goodreads
  • The Offering by Kimberly Derting | Goodreads
  • The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis | Goodreads
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell | Goodreads

What are you planning to read this month? Do you make TBR lists or pick books as you go along? 

Thanks for reading.


Halloween Reading Recommendations

Hellooooo there. Today I have a rather last minute hodgepodge of book recommendations for the last few days of October. Halloween is right around the corner, and though I probably won’t be reading much due to a hectic Saturday schedule, there are certain books that I crave around this time of year. I’ve compiled a list divided roughly by category and I hope it gives you some ideas for Halloween entertainment! And if you’re like me and won’t have time to read this weekend, most of these recommendations easily fit into the November mood, as well.

House PartyThe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin | Goodreads
The Young Elites by Marie Lu | Goodreads

House Party-2
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater | Goodreads
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd Goodreads

House Party-3

Frankenstein by Mary Shelly | Goodreads
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray BradburyGoodreads

House Party-5

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Goodreads
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling | Goodreads
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket | Goodreads
Percy Jackson and & the Olympians by Rick Riordan | Goodreads

It didn’t really fall into any of the above categories, but I also really love the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull – it’s children’s/middle-grade fantasy and it’s fantastic. As for me, I’d love to get to Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys, Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood, or Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

What will you be reading this Halloween? 

Thanks for reading.
