August TBR.

download

I know this is a week late but better late than never I guess… I have read two and a bit books this month but only one of them is actually in the TBR pile… One I totally forgot about and the other one I was reading at the time and it slipped my mind.

I’ve read The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye and The Student by Iain Ryan. I enjoyed both of them but I did like The Crown’s Game more. I’m currently reading Darien: Empire of Salt by C.F. Iggulden. This is the first book in a new YA fantasy trilogy/series. I’m enjoying this too but I just haven’t been in the mood to read so I’m kind of struggling with it. I don’t think it’s the book though.

Then there’s the books on my TBR that I haven’t gotten to yet. My next read will be I DGLyLltVoAAjiAtHave No Secrets by Penny Joelson. This sounds really good and I can’t wait to pick it up. It will also be my third book for ARC August.

A few of the books on this month’s TBR were also on my July TBR… I have been reading really slowly lately. My new medication makes me nauseous and I just can’t read when I feel like throwing up all the time. But I’m hoping to actually read Godblind, Midnight Jewel and Song of the Current this month.

It’s kind of an ambitious TBR pile considering my reading has been slowing down but whatever. We’ll find out how many I’ll actually get through at the end of the month.

What’s on your TBR for August?

I’ve almost finished reading The Glittering Court and I’ve actually enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading Midnight Jewel soon.

I have been thinking that I might mix up my review books with some of my own books. I think that’s what’s been putting me in a reading slump. So I’m not expecting to stick to this TBR too closely.

What’s on your July TBR?

May Wrap Up & June TBR.

monthlywrapup

It’s that time of the month again when I do my wrap up of what I read last month and my TBR. I didn’t really stick to my May TBR so it’s probably good I’m not sharing it. Hopefully I’ll do better this month.

May Wrap Up

The End of Oz by Danielle Paige – ★★★/5
Finding Nevo by Nevo Zisin – ★★★★★/5
Resurrection Bay by Emma Viskic – ★★★★/5
Silver Stars by Michael Grant – ★★★★/5
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan – ★★★★/5
Perfect by Cecelia Ahern – ★★★★/5
The Possible by Tara Altebrando – ★★★★/5
Release by Patrick Ness – ★★★/5
A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray – ★★★★/5
Fatal Crossing by Lone Theils – ★★★/5
Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer – ★★★★/5

I didn’t do too badly in May. I managed to read 11 books. I think my favourite was Finding Nevo.

June TBR

I tried to keep my June TBR small because I didn’t really stick to my TBR last month. I’ve already read Contagion and I’m currently reading One of Us is Lying, which reminding me a lot of Gossip Girl. I think my next read will be The Cows.

What’s on your June TBR? How many books did you read in May? Leave me a comment and let me know.

April Wrap Up & May TBR.

monthlywrapup

I’ve finally got my May TBR together so I decided to share it and my April wrap up today. I did forget one book in my wrap up photo but it’s so hard to get back into the box set that I couldn’t be bothered getting it and taking a new one. So I’m just going to jump right in.

C-tR8QwVwAERbpt
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Ewing – 4/5 stars
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling – 5/5 stars
Black by Fleur Ferris – 4/5 stars
What Girls are Made Of by Elana K. Arnold – 3/5 stars
Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton – 4/5 stars
The Silent Invasion by James Bradley – 3/5 stars
Front Lines by Michael Grant – 3/5 stars
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins – 4/5 stars
But then I Came Back by Estelle Lure – 3/5 stars
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – 5/5 stars

For some reason I’m having trouble with WordPress on both Google Chrome (it won’t load at all) and Internet Explorer. For some reason it won’t let me post the stars that I usually use as my ratings in my wrap ups. I tried Firefox or whatever it’s called but that was slower to load than the computer and I just could not be fucked with that. So if anyone can tell me why it won’t load on Chrome it would be great! I’ve uninstalled it and re-installed it and still have the same problem.

Anyway, onto my May TBR.

I started reading The End of Oz yesterday. I didn’t get a lot read because I kept getting distracted but I’m hoping to read more today. I’ve already picked what I’ll be reading next, Finding Nevo. This sounds so good and I can’t wait to pick it up.

March Wrap Up & April TBR.

monthlywrapup

I read a lot more in March than I did in February. I was actually falling behind on my reading challenge in February but I’ve managed to be ahead of schedule now. So yay. Anyway, onto my wrap up…

Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken – ★★★/5
The Song from Somewhere Else by A.F. Harrold – ★★★/5
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard – ★★★★/5
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – ★★★★★/5
See You in the Cosmos by Jack Cheng – ★★★★/5
Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley – ★★★/5
The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles – ★★★/5
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – ★★★★/5
The Secret Science of Magic by Melissa Keil – ★★★/5
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott – ★★★★/5
Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson – ★★★★★/5

My favourites were definitely The Hate U Give and Allegedly. Which I didn’t think I’d finish in March so I put it on my April TBR. I couldn’t be bothered taking another photo though.

C8SfLoEV0AAepe9

So Allegedly doesn’t count and I’ve already read The Roanoke Girls. That was disturbing but really good. I couldn’t put it down.

I’m actually reading a book that’s not in this photo because I didn’t have it at the time I took it. I started the new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them by J.K. Rowling this morning. It’s got a forward by the author, Newt Scamander, which was the best! I can’t wait to find the six new beasts in the book.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will be a re-read. I wanted to re-read the series after seeing the Fantastic Beasts movie last year.

February Wrap Up and March TBR.

monthlywrapup

I didn’t read a lot in February. With all the stuff going on I didn’t have a lot of spare time to read. So this will be a very short wrap up.

So I managed to read six books in February. Two of them were re-reads.

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth – ★★★★/5
The Severed Land by Maurice Gee – ★★★/5
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – ★★★★/5
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – ★★★/5
The Black Key by Amy Ewing – ★★★★/5
Glass Sword by Veronica Roth – ★★★★★/5

My favourite books this month were Red Queen and Glass Sword but they’re re-reads. I also loved The Black Key and Carve the Mark. I’ll be reviewing these (not the re-reads) soon.

c54nnpguoaa6pje

I have so many books I need to read that’s it’s getting harder to make my TBRs now. I’m currently reading and loving King’s Cage. I haven’t picked what I’m reading next but I’m thinking See You in the Cosmos or The Hate U Give.. Ugh, decisions..

What’s on your TBR for March?

January Wrap Up and February TBR.

monthlywrapup

So I’ve been on a little break from blogging over the last month due to a lot of crap going on in my life. I did manage to post some reviews but not as much as I used to. I hope to get back into my blog now that things have settled down. Fingers crossed anyway.

I know it’s a bit late for a wrap up but I still have to find my review book… I’m really not organized at all. Anyway, onto my wrap up.

c3x5bvyukaa-ifn

So with all the crap going on during the January I still managed to read eleven books.

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – ★★★★/5
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray – ★★★★/5
The Last Beginning by Lauren James – ★★★/5
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – ★★★/5
Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling – ★★★/5
Frostblood by Elly Blake – ★★★★/5
Dear Charlie by N.D. Gomes – ★★★★/5
The White Rose by Amy Ewing – ★★★★/5
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K.Rowling – ★★★★/5
The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr – ★★★/5
Caraval by Stephanie Garber – ★★★★★/5

So obviously my favourite book from January was Caraval. I could not get enough of that book.

So I don’t have a photo for my February TBR because I didn’t have time before we moved and now it’s way too late. But I do plan to read Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken by the end of the month.

Let me know what books you’ve read lately. I feel life I’ve missed so much.
