December 2020 TBR

Hey guys! Can you believe this is the last TBR post for 2020? Strangely, this year seems to have flown by! I’ve actually done very little and I’ve been working from home since March. It does not feel like December. I hope you’ve all managed to have a good year! Here’s what I will be reading this month:

Artemis by Andy Weir: I did not manage to finish this one before the end of November, so it’s being carried over. I’m a decent way through and I can see why a lot of people didn’t like it. I’m enjoying it so far, but it definitely doesn’t match The Martin in any way and the humour definitely feels more forced this time. I don’t feel like DNF’ing though so that’s good!

The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen: HQ was giving away a bunch of proofs and I was lucky enough to get a copy of The Stolen Sisters. I don’t really know much about it aside from twenty years ago the Sinclair sisters were taken and it’s about how they’re recovering from that. It sounds very interesting and it has very good reviews so I’m looking forward to reading it.

November 2020 TBR

Hey guys! As you can tell from the title, today I’ll be talking about my November TBR. I have two weeks off and England is in a month-long lockdown from tomorrow, so I should get plenty of reading done seeing as I can’t go anywhere. Here’s what I want to read:

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton: I started this just before Halloween, but I was no where near finished so I’ve had to carry it over into November. I’ve got about 200 pages left now so I should finish it soon! It’s not at all what I was expecting, but I’m enjoying it so far.

The Lives of Saints by Leigh Bardugo: I’m hoping I can read this one fairly quickly seeing as it’s short stories. I wasn’t planning on buying it but I love the Illumicrate version. I really hope it’s better than The Language of Thorns. I struggled to finish that one and only enjoyed one of the stories.

October 2020 TBR

Hey guys! Today I am sharing my October TBR and after the disaster last month, I hope to read a lot more books! I’ve picked a good selection and some potentially creepy books for Halloween! Even though Halloween won’t be the same this year, I can still pick some good books for it. Here’s what I want to read this month:

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab: I am so excited to finally read this! It sounds like Schwab’s most exciting book yet. A deal with the devil? A curse where a girl is forgotten by everyone? It sounds so chilling and haunting. Schwab always writes such amazing stories and I can’t wait to read this one.

Someone’s Listening by Seraphina Nova Glass: I’m really intrigued by this one. Faith Finley is a talented psychologist who wrote a book on escaping a predator and now one is coming for her. It sounds incredibly twisty; I’ve already read the first couple chapters and the writing so far is brilliant. I think I will enjoy this one!

September 2020 TBR

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be talking about my September TBR and I’m hoping that I can read a lot more books this time and maybe even complete my reading challenge! Here’s what I’m planning on reading:

The Guilty Die Twice by Don Hartshorn: I was kindly given a copy of this for review and I can’t wait to read it as it’s a little different to the books I usually read. It’s a legal thriller where two estranged brothers are pitted against one another – one is a public defender and the other is District Attorney. It sounds really complex and exciting!

Marionette by Sarah Main Burton: I was kindly provided with a copy of this by the author and it sounds incredible and really cool. It’s about captured supervillain Mesmer, who’s given a choice to either die for her crimes, or repay society by using her mind-control abilities in the service of the American Hero League. But then Mesmer finds out that the AHL is involved in a sinister conspiracy and she must decide whose freedom she stands for. Whose safety. And whose version of good. I’m so excited to read it because it sounds so epic.

August 2020 TBR

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my August TBR. I’ve got a mixture of young adult and crime thrillers and my most anticipated book at last! August is going to be a really exciting month for that alone! Here’s what I’ll be reading:

Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer: This is my most anticipated release so of course I’ll be dropping everything to read it! I’ve been waiting years for this book and I honestly thought it would never be published. I reread Twilight a couple years ago and I still really loved it. I can’t wait to read the story from Edward’s perspective!

A Window Breaks by C.M. Ewan: I started reading this in July and unfortunately I didn’t manage to finish it so it’s one I’m carrying over into August. It’s pretty good so far!

July 2020 TBR

Hey guys! It’s officially July and that means a new TBR! I have a stack of unread books on the shelf behind my bed so I’ll be concentrating on these this month. I’m going to try and get through as many as I can, but I’ve set myself a target of 10. I think that is doable so let’s get into it! Here’s what I want to read:

Crownbreaker by Sebastien de Castell: I’ve said enough about this series already, you don’t need to read even more about it! It’s time to finish it and I hope it’s a good ending for such an awesome series.

He Started It by Samantha Downing: I loved Samantha’s first book so I was really excited to get my hands on her newest book. I believe this one is about family secrets and always being there for one another despite how bad some of those secrets are. But it also comes down to trust and whether the ones closest to you the most dangerous. It sounds like another dark thriller so I can’t wait to get stuck in!

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!
