June 2020 TBR

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s June already and that I’ve been working from home for over two months now. I feel like I haven’t got as much reading done as I thought I would and I’m not that much further ahead with my reading challenge compared to last year. Hopefully I can read a lot more this month. I haven’t read many crime thrillers this year so I’ve decided to take a break from fantasy books (excluding Spellslinger) and read some of my thrillers!

The Wives by Tarryn Fisher: This sounds like it’s going to completely mess with your head! The main character only sees her husband one day a week (Thursday) and she’s never met his other wives. That all changes when she meets Monday, who has bruises on her arms. She starts to question who her husband really is and what else he’s keeping from her. Already I’m shocked that she was fine with that arrangement and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. I hope it’s a rollercoaster from start to finish!

May 2020 TBR

Hey guys! Today I’m going to talk about the books I want to read in May. I think this is looking to be a fantasy series month – I feel like tackling some of my unread series and obviously most of them are fantasy. Here’s what I’d like to read:

Spellslinger (Books 1-6) by Sebastien de Castell: I remember saying that while I was working from home I wanted to read the last three books in Spellslinger series. However, I have now decided to reread the entire series because a) I love this series so much and b) I don’t entirely remember what happened in the second and third books. I’m going to try to read all six books this month, but if not then I definitely want to read the first three. I hope I end up giving them all five stars again!

April 2020 TBR

Hey guys! It appears that we will be in lockdown in the UK for a little while longer as people can’t seem to follow the rules, which is frustrating for those of us who have been staying inside the past two weeks but there we go. The upside is that I can continue tackling all the massive books on my TBR. So far I have read Crescent City and Strange the Dreamer, both two very different stories. Here’s some more big books I want to tackle in April:

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: I might as well mention that I didn’t enjoy Strange the Dreamer, but since I have the second book though I thought I might as well read it. I didn’t like any of the characters and I wasn’t even shocked at the big reveal at the end, so I doubt I’ll enjoy Muse of Nightmares that much. Also, since it’s only a duology *I hope* then I might as well finish the series.

Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi: So this isn’t really a massive book but it’s the last one in the Shatter Me series and I have been waiting a while to read it! I have seen a lot of terrible reviews though so I’m not sure if I will enjoy it. I hope I do though!

March 2020 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my March TBR and it’s such an exciting month because Chain of Gold is finally here! You bet I’m reading this as soon as possible. I’ve been waiting so long for it! I’m hoping it doesn’t give me a book hangover because I also want to read some other books. Here’s my TBR:

Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare: After waiting so long for this, it’s finally here! I can’t wait to devour it and I’m so looking forward to meeting another generation of shadowhunters! I’ll probably read it this weekend! 

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater: I got this when it first came out and still haven’t read it! I loved The Raven Cycle and I’ve said so many times that I found Roman to be the most interesting character. I want to learn more about his dreams! I hope this trilogy is just as good.

Highest Rated Books On My TBR

Hey guys! I feel like last year even though I said I wanted to tackle my TBR, I mostly just ended up ignoring it but this year I want that to be different. I think if I actually look at the books that are on there, it might actually spur me on to read some of them! So today I am looking at the top ten highest rating books that are currently on my TBR, according to Goodreads. Let’s get into it!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas (Rating 4.66): I actually forgot this was on my TBR I thought I’d removed it, whoops. I’m not even surprised that it’s the highest rated book because the amount of people I’ve seen and heard people raving about this book is insane. Unfortunately I didn’t feel the same and DNF’ed it when I was about halfway through. I do want to give it another try but I’m struggling to motivate myself to pick it up again.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Rating 4.61): This book is just taunting me now. I will admit though that I am surprised that it’s the second highest rated book. I know Leigh Bardugo is an amazing author but I thought it’d be a bit lower down on my list. I want to read this before I read King of Scars so trust me when I say I will read this!

February 2020 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my February TBR (also my birthday month!). I did really well in January and according to Goodreads I’m up to date with my reading challenge, so hopefully I can keep that going this month.

The Manifestations of Sherlock Holmes by James Lovegrove: I’m currently reading this collection of short stories and I’m enjoying it so far though I do feel that Holmes has solved the cases extremely fast in some of them! I’m not very far in yet though so maybe there’s longer stories further in.

January 2020 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! January, which always seems to be a struggle to get through, is finally over so that means I’m posting my wrap up. Last January I only managed two books which was super disappointing; however, I am very pleased to say that this year I managed to read seven books!

Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare: I finally read this giant book and it was actually everything I was hoping for. Admittedly, some stories were confusing as they had a lot of characters and I was struggling to remember who was who and who was related to the characters I already knew. I don’t know how Cassie manages to keep up with this world! My favourite stories were the ones with Jem and Tessa and the brief moments they manage to have together. Then the stories at the end when they’re finally together, that was super emotional. I loved this and I can’t wait for Chain of Gold now!
