February 2018 TBR!

Before I get into this TBR, I wanted to quickly announce that my post for the day 1 challenge for the 2018 winter Biannual Bibliothon was chosen as a winner! I am ecstatic and want to thank the host Victoria, from @LatteNightsReviews for choosing me and taking the time to come up with this great challenge šŸ™‚

January just flew by, and now February is upon us which is insane, but I am also so ready to dive deeper into the new year. January was a fantastic reading month (my wrap up will be coming later this week) and hopefully February will be just as good. I would say that I hope for it to be even better, but this was a rare month, and honestly I doubt I could read more than what I managed to read in February. Anyways, enough rambling so here is my TBR!

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

All-the-light-we-cannot-see

I started this book during the Biannual Bibliothon, however it is a really dense book and I figured I wouldn’t rush myself to finish it. So, I plan to read a bit each week and then hopefully finish it by the end of February! This book takes place during World War II and follows Marie-Laure, a French blind girl, and Werner, a German boy who after their paths collide, they try to survive the devastation that is the war. Currently, I am studying World War I in class so it is fun reading a fiction book that takes place during a war, even if it is a different war. This book has nothing but amazing hype and I cannot wait to finally join it.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Honestly, I think this book might be the most hyped up book of 2018, even though 2018 has just began. I have heard nothing but fantastic things, so I bought this book a few weeks back and cannot wait to dive in to it. Despite the hype, I know nothing about this book apart from the fact that it includes faeries which is good enough for me!

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

It’s the dead of winter, so why not read a summer contemporary? Even though I heard this is a sad book, it is the only Morgan Matson book I haven’t read yet so I am really excited to see how much I like it compared to the others. I did start this book several months ago, but for some reason I never finished it…but I am determined to, now that I have my own copy. Second Chance Summer follows a girl named Taylor and her family, who after getting some devastating news about their father, venture back up to their old summer house for one last summer together. I am a sucker for contemporaries so I have no doubt I will love it.

I know I only have 3 books on this TBR, but that is because I realized that setting 4 or 5 books that I tell myself IĀ have to read in a month makes me a little reluctant to read them, so I figured just giving myself a smaller TBR will help. Anyways, don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Audiobook Recommendations!

Happy reading šŸ™‚

New February TBR!!!

I change my mind a lot and yesterday I scanned my bookshelf and realized there are a few books I haven’t read in sooo long so I decided to swap them out with some of the books originally in my TBR.

Origin by Jennifer L Armentrout was originally on my TBR and I will still be reading that because I am almost done and it is really good at the moment so I am so excited to finish it! 100 pages left!

After Origin, I am planning on finishing Passengers by Alexandra Bracken because I never finished it and I am halfway done and I would like to complete it before I forget what happened in the first 200 pages!

The last book I am planning on reading in February is Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare considering Lady Midnight is coming out in less than a month! Also the Infernal Devices trilogy is just so amazing and I haven’t read it in a while.

FUN FACT: Did you know Cassandra Clare is not Cassandra Clare’s real name?! Her real name is Judith Rumelt and Cassandra Clare is her pen name.

Hope you enjoy this TBR update and I hope that FUN FACT blew your mind because I know my whole world has changed. Happy Valentine’s Day!

February TBR + New Releases!

My February TBR originally started out very packed but I managed to narrow it down to three books that I really have been wanting to read.

So the first to books I have planned are Opal and Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout. They are the third and fourth book of the amazing Lux series which is about a girl named Katy moving next door to an alien…I will go into a more depth review in my next post which will be my January Wrap Up!

The last book I would like to get to is Passengers by Alexandra Bracken. I started this book in the middle of January but I got side tracked and began reading the Lux series. From what I have read so far of it (I am 200 pages in) it is really interesting and different from all the other books I read so I cannot wait to jump right back into the book and finish it.

Now for the New Releases portion of this blog! So there are two books I am ecstatic to get my hands on this month and they are Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard which is the second book in the Red Queen series which I found really entertaining. Yes, it may have not been the most original series but I really enjoyed reading it and learning about the world. And can we just talk about that plot twist? That killed me. Anyway the next book I am anticipating for this month is Stars Above by Marissa Meyer! Stars Above is a collection of short stories about the Lunar Chronicles series! I won’t really explain the series because I will be talking about it more in my next blog post!

Anyway, that is all I have for now and I will be back with another post soon!
