January 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! I only have four books on my TBR for January as I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things after being lazy for a week and a half. January will definitely be a slow month for me but I’m fine with that as my reading challenge is only 40 books anyway. Here’s what I’d like to read this month:

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare: I started this during my week off at Christmas and I’m still not even halfway yet! I’m hoping to finish it this month but I’m not in any rush, I’m happy to just take my time with it! I think because it’s the last book and I don’t want another series to end. I’m dragging it out apparently!

Vengeful by V.E. Schwab: I was gutted I wasn’t able to read this in December but I am determined to finish it this month! I’ve heard it’s even better than the first one and that book was amazing! Honestly I am very impressed with Schwab and totally loving her books!

December 2018 TBR!

Hey guys! December is off to a great start for me! I’ve finished two books this month already so now I only need to read five more to hit my target of 70 books which is insane! So that gives me four weeks to read five books. I’m literally racing through them as fast as I can and I hope the week off I have at Christmas will help! I only have three more weeks left in work, yay! Here’s what I want to read this month:

Fall From Grace by Tim Weaver: This is the fifth book in the David Raker series and I have not read this one before so I am excited to be going in blind! It’s the usual: a man goes missing, he practically vanishes into thin air and nine months later he is still missing. The police have nothing so David Raker is called in to investigate and he will most likely uncover some messed up stuff! This is one hell of a book as it’s nearly 600 pages so it’ll keep me occupied for the rest of the week!

Last Breath by Robert Bryndza: This is the fourth book in the Detective Erika Foster series and I am HOOKED! These books are so freaking good! I haven’t gotten this addicted to a crime thriller series in a while. I quickly fell in love with the characters and the plot for each book has been really engrossing so far. Dark Water (book number three) is definitely my favourite but this series seems to go from strength to strength so book four might end up being my new favourite, we’ll see! I thought the second book was good but then I read the third. Damn, this author is good!

October 2018 TBR!

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s October already! I’m so excited for Halloween and also because we are that little bit closer to Christmas! But I am really excited for Halloween because I love it so much. I’ve tried to pick what I hope are some creepy books to get me in the mood for this spooky month! Here’s what I’d like to read:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: As soon as I saw this book I just knew I had to read it. It looks and sounds amazing, and it has black sprayed edges! It just screams horror at me and I really hope it doesn’t disappoint! It looks like a book that is going to be really creepy and shocking… I’m so excited I can finally start reading it!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco: I have been saving this book especially for October because it just screams Halloween! Everyone has been telling me to read this so I have really high hopes for it! I think it also includes photographs and I really liked that when I was reading Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children.

September TBR!

Hey guys! I am so excited because by the time you’re reading this I’ll be on holiday! I am going on holiday for 2 weeks and I plan on taking 6 books with me. I’ve been wanting to read them for a long time but just never picked them up, so I thought it’d be perfect to fly them across the world with me and read them by the pool!

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

I am taking The Raven Cycle on holiday with me, yay! It’s about time I actually finished this series (I’ve only read the first book) and I think my holiday is the perfect time to do this. This series has been incredibly hyped compared to Maggie’s other books so I think I’ll really like it! It’s got better reviews and everyone says it’s one of their favourites. I did actually like the first book, I’m not sure why I never read the second one. So hopefully I’ll finish this series pretty fast when I’m lazing by the pool!

August TBR!

Hey guys! Here’s my late August TBR, oops! I really should start posting my TBRs earlier because I’ve already finished one book this month and I’m nearly halfway through another. I plan on reading 6 books this month and so far so good! I actually extended my reading challenge to 50 books but I’ve already read 40 so I may need to extend it again, ahh!! Anyway, here is my August TBR:

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Dust by James Lovegrove: This is the one I am nearly halfway through! I actually was a bit hesitant to read this because the last Sherlock Holmes book I read by James Lovegrove bored me to tears, I didn’t like it at all. But this one is actually pretty good, which I was really surprised by! I love the plot and I love how well he seems to have captured Sherlock and Watson. There’s a lot of sarcastic comments which are making me smile and laugh and I love that! The mystery is only just beginning so I can’t wait to read more and see Sherlock start to unravel everything!

The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil and the Four by Sam Siciliano: Two Sherlock Holmes books in one month! Good job I am a fan of his! This one looks very interesting, it seems different to other ones I have read and there’s no mention of John in the synopsis. It doesn’t look like he is in this and instead there’s a cousin. That’s intriguing! I’ll be picking this up as soon as I finish The Devil’s Dust so I hope it’s good!

July TBR!

Hello! I kind of crashed and burned in June as I only managed to read three books. I didn’t manage to read every book on my TBR, so I’ll be carrying those over for this month. I’ve also picked some extra ones, hopefully I’ll be able to read them all! Here’s what I plan on reading:

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu: I’m glad I didn’t call it quits on this trilogy because the second book was a lot better than the first. Adelina is almost a completely different person and her actions are a lot darker and more disturbing. I’ve really loved the turn this series has taken and I can’t wait to see how it all ends!

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw: This was very kindly sent to me by the author and I’ll be reading it as soon as I finish The Midnight Star. It sounds like it will be a really refreshing and interesting read!

June TBR!

Hey guys! Even though I have been completely smashing my TBR the past two months, I am still going to set a low one this month as I like only having a small TBR. Having a small one each month is definitely more manageable and I feel it’s less pressure on myself. If I set a massive TBR I’d feel so stressed all month and rush to complete it. So I’ll be setting myself 6 books and if I manage to read them all before the end of the month, then I’ll just pick up another book at random. So without further ado, here is what I want to read this month:

The Rose Society The Midnight Star by Marie Lu: This series is a trilogy and I’ve already read the first book The Young Elites, so I’m going to now read the other two. The first one was OK, not great to be honest. I wasn’t sure if it was worth continuing but apparently the second book is a lot better so I’ve decided to get them both read. I’ve heard Marie Lu is a fantastic writer, maybe this isn’t one of her best series? I probably should have started with Legend but oh well.
