May TBR!

Hey guys! I was thrilled with what I managed to read in April and I’m hoping to read the same amount this month! I’m going on holiday for a week soon and I don’t plan on doing anything but lounging by the pool all day, so this gives me the perfect opportunity to get lots of reading done! Here’s what I plan on reading this month:

Friend Request by Laura Marshall: I have been wanting to read this for so long and I’ve heard great things about it! I’ve already started it but I’m not very far in, only fifty pages or so. So far it’s good, I am intrigued but it is very slow and not a lot is happening. I’m hoping it has a slow build up but then it’s unputdownable.

The Vinyl Detective: Victory Disc by Andrew Cartmel: This is the third book in The Vinyl Detective series. I read the first two last year and I absolutely loved them! They were very different to crime thrillers that I normally read and it felt very refreshing to read a series all about rare vinyls! I’ve literally been counting down to the third book and I can’t wait to dive in now!

April TBR (Chosen by my friend!)

Hey guys! I’ve been struggling with my monthly TBRs recently because I haven’t been able to decide what I want to read and when I did decide I didn’t really stick to it. So for April I enlisted the help of my friend. I asked her if she’d like to pick my TBR and obviously she said yes since I am writing this post. She just looked through my ‘Want to Read’ books on Goodreads and picked five out for me. One of the books she picked for me was A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir and I actually finished that one yesterday so it will not be included in this list for that reason. Here are the remaining four that she picked:

The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware: I was really wanting to read this after I was approved for it on NetGalley, so I was really happy when I saw she had picked this out for me. I loved The Lying Game and The Woman in Cabin 10 so I am stoked to see what masterpiece Ruth has delivered this time! It comes out in June!

Nightfall by Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski: I bought this a really long time ago because it sounded interesting but I just shelved it and forgot about it. My friend picked it out for me because she thought the blurb sounded really good also. Unfortunately, it hasn’t got great reviews so I’m not going to go into it with high hopes. I’m hoping that I can finish it, but we will see!

March TBR! (+300 followers!!)

Hey guys! Before I get into this post, I just want to say thank you so much for 300 followers! That’s so crazy! I feel very lucky to have a blog that keeps growing day by day! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This month I am going to try and read another four books. This seems to be what I am capable of/comfortable with reading each month and I am pretty happy with that as you all know by now! So here is my TBR for March:

I Remember You.jpg.size-2301) I Remember You by Elisabeth De Mariaffi

I requested an ARC of this from the publisher because it sounded like an awesome thriller. It takes place in the 1950s in New York which to me sounds fantastic. It really intrigued me that it’s post-war and I couldn’t resist asking for a copy of this. It sounds like a really good mystery/thriller. I have started it and so far I am really enjoying it but it is a little strange! It’s unlike any other book I have read before   and this sometimes makes it very jolting but it’s got me very intrigued! Also I think the cover is really awesome.

February TBR!

Hey guys! I read four books last month and I am hoping to read another four this month! My TBR for this month is crime thrillers and they all sound amazing! I have actually already finished a book this month and that is Bird Box by Josh Malerman. So I have only included three books on my TBR list and they are:

Hangman1) Hangman by Daniel Cole

I have already started this but I keep putting it down so I just need to pick it back up again and force myself to read it! Every time the second book comes out in a series I struggle to get back into the story. Once I make myself read it I’m normally questioning why it took me so damn long to read it. I loved Ragdoll, it was such a thrilling and exciting story and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the second book. I just really need to stop putting it down and actually dive back into this world!

December TBR!

Hey guys! So December is upon us and I have read 45/50 books for my reading challenge! So I have to read five books now and I feel like I’m going to be racing through them as fast as I can. I am definitely not setting such a high target next year because with my new job it has been so challenging. I’m thinking maybe 30 books next year? Not sure yet! Anyways, here are the five books I will be reading this month!

Hell Bay.jpg1) Hell Bay by Kate Rhodes

I got approved for this on NetGalley and it sounds so exciting! It reminds me of The Devil’s Claw because they both take place on an island and both of the main characters are returning to the island where they grew up, to seek refugee from a traumatic past. But then a body is found on a beach and they have to track down the killer. I really liked The Devil’s Claw and this one sounds just as exciting. I really love crime thrillers when the main character has a traumatic past because I feel it adds more excitement to the story. It’s like a vulnerability that the killer can tap into. Can’t wait to start this!

November TBR!

Hey guys! Since I have to try and read five books this month I’m going to be selecting books that I really want to read or I know I will read really fast! It’s going to be a very random selection so without further ado, here are the books I plan on reading this month:

Lord of Shadows1) Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

I’ve lost count of how many times this has been on my TBR in the past months but I have actually started reading it now! I’m currently two hundred pages in and hoping to finish it this weekend! I had a little panic when I realised how close the end of the year was. If I don’t read this book by the end of the year, I may end up falling behind with Cassie’s books because she likes to introduce and publish lots of new books/series! The tenth anniversary edition of City of Bones is out this month and I might take a trip down memory lane and re-read that at some point. So you’ll definitely be seeing this book on my November wrap up!

October TBR!

Hey guys! Since I’ve been working full time I’ve been really struggling to get a lot of books read and as a result my NetGalley books have piled up. So this month I am keen to get that pile down and as such will be reading three books (or trying to) from NetGalley! I am very excited to read these books as they are highly anticipated releases!

Zenith1) Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

When I saw this book was on NetGalley I literally started freaking out because I am super excited to read this! I feel so grateful to have been approved because I honestly thought I’d be rejected! I’ve heard terrible things about this book to be honest but it hasn’t swayed me. I’m just too excited for this book to let anything get in the way of me reading it. I do really like Sasha’s videos but I’m not going to let that influence my opinion of her book. If I like it, yay! If not then that will be a shame but I will still continue to watch her videos!
