Thy TBR of September 

There are some books that I’m practically salivating over, so I’m excited to share them with you!

  
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Don’t tell me you’re surprised. I’ve dedicated two posts to this book—two. This only shows what an amazing author Sarah J. Maas is, and the power she has over so many of us!

 Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

The crazy amount of amazing reviews I’ve read about this book would make me insane not to read it. Diversity, original plot, what other reasons do you need to read it?

 
The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima

In August I read the first book in this series, The Demon King, and I really enjoyed it. With that ending, I can tell that the rest of the series can only get better! 

  
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

I’m very, VERY hesitant about this book. I’m not a fan of vampires. The only books I’ve ever finished that included vampires are the Shadowhunter Chronicles, and even then the story rarely focused on them. But I can’t ignore all the good reviews, so I think I’ll give this book a try.

My goal is to read these books and 16 others so I can complete my reading challenge of 105 books for the year! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it, my I’m ready to try!

What book are you planning to read about? Let me know!

Ambitious April TBR!

I’ve been sick, but since I love you all soooo much, I’m writing despite my misery.

Okay, slight dramatization there, but still.

New Releases

  

Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman

This book is going to be released on April 21, and I cannot contain my excitement! 

This novel is the sequel to Prisoner of Night and Fog, which is a historical fiction novel revolving around Gretchen, who calls Adolf Hitler “Uncle Dolf.” She meets a Jewish reporter who starts to reveal some truths she didn’t see.

This novel was also one of my most anticipated releases, and also feels like a belated birthday present to me , since my birthday is only two days before.

 
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir 

I don’t know much about this book, but I’ve been hearing so much hype, plus Sabaa Tahir is going to have a book signing near where I live! 

Review Copies

 
Silent Echo by Elisa Freilich

Diversion books (the publication company) was kind enough to send me an eBook of this book. YAY!

Silent Echo is about a mute girl who can suddenly use her voice. I know it also incorporates Greek mythology, which I LOVE.

Library Books

   

The Elite by Kiera Cass

 

The One by Kiera Cass

As many of you probably know, The Heir is going to be released in May, so I want to read the rest of the series. Plus, Kiera Cass will have a book signing near where I live!

 

 

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

I started this book, but then I got sick and my brain requested to just be a vegetable, so I’ll finish it in April.

So, it’s about vampires. And I really, really don’t like that. I just plain don’t like stories about vampires. However, I’ve heard so much hype, so I decided to pick  it up. So far, I really enjoy her writing style, but I still hate the vampires part. They’re creepy, okay?

That’s it for my April TBR! Not too many books, but with my immune system, who knows when I’ll get better. 

With my birthday and this awesome selection of books, I know it’ll be a great month!

Comment below your thoughts, if you’ve read these, if you want to, or if you just want to say hi!

Read-O-Rama Readathon TBR

Read-O-Rama is a Readathon created by a few booktubers. I thought it looked swankified (Wicked reference in case you musical newbies didn’t know) and fun, so I decided I would join in!

It takes place from midnight, March 8 to 11:59, March 15. Ergo, it starts tomorrow!

There are 7 challenges that you try to complete, and the goal is to read 7 books. I’m not sure if it’ll happen, since I do have school, buuut I’ll do my best!

Read a book from your TBR Jar, or a book someone else picked out for you.

Since I don’t have a TBR jar, I asked my sister to pick out a book for me. I have no idea what The Alchemist is about, but I know it’ll be a quick read, since it’s less than 200 pages.

Read a book with green on the cover



Okay, there are greenish lights reflecting off the water. It counts. Right?

Read a book with the letters RAMA in the title/author name

As you can see, there are 2 As, 1 R, and 1 M. So excited to read this! I’ve been in a real fantasy kick lately.

Read a diverse book

I don’t have one picked out yet, I think I’ll go to the library and pick one out. After all, it’s free!

Read a book with flowers on it

Well, there’s one flower. It counts. I think.

Read a Contemporary 

Both We Were Liars and All The Bright Places are contemporaries, so I think I’ve got this challenge covered.

Finish a series


I’m so excited to read this! The Grisha Trilogy is so GOOOOOD!

I’m also going to try to get to another book so that I’ll have read 7 books, though I’m not sure what I’m going to get yet. I’m also not sure if I’ll read all these books, I might read other books to complete the challenges instead of the books I have listed here. We’ll find out in a week!

Comment below if you’re going to take part of this Readathon, I’d love to know if other bloggers are going to take part!

Happy Reading!❤️

March 2015 – TBR

I ended up reading 17 books in February, so as you can see, it was a pretty awesome reading month. 

I’m not sure how much I’ll read in March, but there are a few I know I’ll get to.

NetGalley and ARCs:

You can expect reviews for all of these!
