Books I Want to Read in April 2021

Hey guys! I can’t believe that it’s already time to share my April TBR. This year is going by fast considering we’ve spent the first three months in lockdown. I’ve been struggling to keep on top of my reading so I’m going to try switching it up by reading paperbacks and smaller books instead. I’ve been reading chunky books so maybe I miss holding a small paperback? I’ll try anything at this point to get out of my slump! Here’s what I’m planning on reading:

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson: I picked this one up randomly on my week off and so far I am loving it. It follows Pippa Fitz-Amobi as she sets out to uncover who really killed schoolgirl Andie Bell five years ago. I’m not that far in yet but I’m finding the interview transcripts really interesting and all the investigating Pip is doing. I can’t wait to get further into it!

A Dark and Hollow Star by Ashley Shuttleworth: Ok, this is not a small paperback, it’s a very big hardback from Illumicrate but I have been itching to read it and it’s supposed to be similar to Cassandra Clare’s books, which I love! I’m really looking forward to this one and diving back into the fae realm. This one is about a group of teenagers who are working together to stop a killer before the fae realm is exposed to the human world. It sounds incredible!

Books I Want to Read in February 2021

Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you the books I’ve picked out to read in February. Actually, I got some help from Goodreads because I couldn’t decide what to read. I’ve picked out the first three and the rest were chosen randomly by Goodreads. They are older books that I’ve had sitting on my shelf for years so that’s good that I might finally get round to them. Here’s what I’ll be reading:

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas: So this is the first book I’ll be reading and probably the one that’ll take me the longest. I’m excited to see what Feyre does and how she’ll take down the invading king, but at the same time I’m keeping my expectations low because I just know the romance between Feyre and Rhysand will be unbearable. I’m not particularly bothered about their romance and I just know “mate” will be mentioned a ridiculous amount of times. I don’t want the romance to completely take over the fantasy part and the threat of the invasion but I’m thinking it will. But I’ve come this year and I’m determined to finish this series.

A Sky Beyond The Storm by Sabaa Tahir: I think this was on my December TBR but I never ended up getting to it and then in January I was focused on reading other series. It’s time now to finish the Ember Quartet and get another series ticked off my list! I’m nervous but I’m excited to see how Sabaa wraps this series up.

Books I Want to Read in 2021

Hey guys! Today I am going to be talking about some books that I want to read in 2021, mainly because I didn’t get round to them this year due to me having an uncontrollable TBR pile. I would try and sneak some of these in now, but let’s be honest it’s not going to happen. They’ll definitely be on my radar for next year though!

One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus: I was so excited for this to be released and I’m gutted that I didn’t get round to reading it. If you’re not familiar with One of Us Is Next, it’s the sequel to One of Us Is Lying, which is about five students going to detention, but only four of them leaving alive. I was going to read One of Us Is Next but I want to reread the first book before I do that, as I don’t remember too much of the plot. I know the sequel is set a year after the events that happened in One of Us Is Lying, so it does still tie into the first book. I would love to read it early next year!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo: I keep putting this one off despite really wanting to read it as I want to read the Six of Crows duology first. Everyone raves about those books but I wasn’t that keen on Six of Crows, hence why it’s taking me so long to read Crooked Kingdom and King of Scars. If you’ve read this duology and enjoyed it, please let me know because I need someone to encourage me to read it!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.
