Shortest Books On My TBR

Hey guys! A few months ago I listed the six largest books on my TBR so I thought it’d be good to look at the shorter ones and I’m hoping it will give me the kick I need to read them. Realistically, it shouldn’t take me long to read them because some are really short and I know I can easily read them in a day! So without further ado, let’s get into it!

 

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs: I bought this when it first came out, started it but then just never finished it! I am a disappointment. I need to read it before I read A Map of Days and since it’s just lots of short stories, I don’t see why I couldn’t read this in a day. I don’t know what to expect as normally this isn’t my kind of thing. I hope it’s good!

Published by: Titan Books
Publication date: 29th May 2018
Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis: 

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in one another. A shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death-experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. They become EOs, ExtraOrdinaries, leaving a body in their wake and turning on each other.

Ten years later Victor has escaped from prison and is determined to get his revenge on the man who put him there, aided by a young girl with the ability to raise the dead. Eli has spent the years hunting down and killing every EO he can find, convinced that they are a crime against God, all except his sidekick, a woman whose power is persuasion and whom he cannot defy. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the arch-nemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

Most Anticipated 2019 Releases!

Hey guys! I feel like 2019 is going to be the year for YA books because there’s so many great ones coming out! These are only the ones I’m excited about so far but I’m pretty certain I’ll find some more intriguing ones throughout 2019.

Chains of Gold, The Red Scrolls of Magic & Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare

Cassie is releasing THREE books this year which is insane and they all sound amazing! I can’t decide which I am most excited for because I love all of the characters so much and I’m so glad we get to see even more of them! I really loved The Infernal Devices so I have high hopes for Chain of Gold! Also all of the covers look so pretty!

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!

2019 Reading/Blogging Resolutions!

Hey guys! I thought it would be a good idea to set myself some reading goals for 2019 and hopefully come back to midway through the year to see how I’m doing! I’ve set myself five goals and I’m feeling pretty confident I can stick to them. Here’s my goals for 2019:

Even though I did really well in 2018, I’m still going to aim for a low number this year just incase. I don’t want to struggle to hit my target and end up stressing trying to read anything and everything. I think 40 is a nice chill number and it’ll let me relax with my reading! I don’t want reading to become a chore so a target of 40 books is fine with me.

Review of 2018!

Hey guys! I hope everyone is enjoying the first day of 2019! Today I thought I’d review 2018 as I had a pretty great year for reading. I was definitely not expecting to read as much as I did and even though it was a pretty rubbish year, I’m pleased it didn’t affect my reading. So here’s my review of 2018:

So I set a goal of 30 books at the start of the year then I gradually upped it each time I surpassed my challenge. I capped it at 60 but then ended up reading 71 books which is amazing. I am delighted with that and hoping I can manage to read the same, if not more, in 2019!

December 2018 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a wonderful end to 2018 and a great beginning to 2019! I managed to read 8 books in December and I’m really happy with that! Sadly I only managed to read 1 book over the Christmas holiday because I ended up being busier than I thought I would be. But to read 8 books is still an accomplishment for me! Here’s what I read:

Never Coming Back Fall From Grace by Tim Weaver: I ticked another 2 books of the David Raker series and I have 4 more to go. I really enjoyed Never Coming Back and there’s so much more I understand now having read the first 3 books. It was definitely one of the darker books in the series so far and there was a lot of really gruesome scenes! Unfortunately I did not enjoy Fall From Grace and only gave it 3 stars. I found it very slow and quite boring. It definitely wasn’t as interesting or captivating as the other books and I found myself really wanting to finish it just so I could pick up anything else. I’m disappointed that I didn’t enjoy it as much but it’s not putting me off reading the next 4 because it’s only that one book in the series I didn’t like. The rest have been really good!
