Archive for TBR Pile
I did so well in the month of July. I read more than I anticipated. Instead of six books, I read eleven. I’m barely making a dent in my reading challenge. I’m still about nine books behind, but at least I caught up by two books (eleven behind, last month).
August means it’s the last month before school starts… which means I really need to get a move on my ARCs so I don’t have to bring them to school with me.
I’ve already reread some books this month, but these are the ones I plan on reading as well.
- Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama – I’ve had this ARC for a while now. It’s time for me to finally read it before release date!
- Ten by Gretchen McNeil – I posted about the scary synopsis of this book a few months ago on my Facebook page. I’m glad I was able to pick up an ARC of this book. Hopefully it won’t be too creepy.
- The Blessed by Tonya Hurley – Another BEA book. It’s not releasing until September, but I want to read it now so I don’t have to bring it with me to school.
- Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard – It’s Austen in August at The Book Rat! I’ve had this on my shelves for a while now. Good time as ever to pick it up.
- We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han – I might as well, right? I know I have a love/hate relationship with Belly, but I borrowed it from the library. Might as well make use of it.
- Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – I can’t remember the last time I read an epic fantasy. It’s about time, I think.
- Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel – I loved the movie, and I can’t believe I haven’t read the book yet. This is the book I’m reading next.
I’m going to try and be realistic here. I am going to read 6 books in the month of July. I think that’s quite manageable even if I’m sorely behind on my GoodReads challenge. I would love to aim for more books, but let’s be real here.
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: I’m currently reading this one! Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite authors so I’m always excited about her newest book.
- The Raft by S.A. Bodeen: This one looks exciting! I have to read this one for review in August so I’m hoping to read it soon.
- Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott: This is Loreal’s favorite – or at least one of her favorites – Scott novel so I hope I enjoy it too.
- Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon: I keep pushing off reading the Lord John Grey series but I am finally making time for it. I have no excuse now that I own the first in the series.
- Hazel by Julie Hearn: I thought it was only appropriate to add a historical YA to the mix. This one has been sitting on my shelf for about a year now.
- Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick: This was one of my most anticipated sequels! I’m so happy that I managed to snag a copy at BEA this year.
Don’t forget to subscribe to my new channel! I still get emails that people are subscribing to my old YouTube channel – which is great, but I’m no longer posting new videos on that account.
I read more than I anticipated in February. I couldn’t believe it! I think it’s the combination of audiobooks and ebooks as well as the pressure that my review pile is putting on me. I’m determined to keep up with my reading this month!
February will be dedicated to reading all the egalleys that I’ve accumulated on my nook in the last month. And just to add a book for fun, I checked out an ebook from my library!
- Thumped by Megan McCafferty – I wanted this book ever since I finished reading Bumped!
- A Rogue By Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean – Oh my gosh, one of my favorite romance authors came out with a book. Gotta read it ASAP.
- This is Not A Test by Courtney Summers – This one was on my February TBR pile but I unfortunately was not able to get to it last month.
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
- The Academie by Susanne Dunlap
- I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’ll Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
- Scary School by Derek the Ghost
- The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
