Today I am sharing my TBR for July. I only managed to read 5 books in June so I didn’t want to make this month’s too ambitious so I decided to pick 5 books that I hope to read this month. I’m really hoping that I will be able to read more but I know this month will be busy as I am now working full time so I don’t have as much time to read as I did before.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt– I started this book last month but only got about 30% read. This book is over 800 pages so it is going to take me awhile to finish. I am finding it interesting although it has been a little slow so I am hoping that the pace will pick up.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare– I have had this book since it came out in May but I am still yet to read it. I loved Lady Midnight and I can’t wait to see how the story continues. I really want to read this book before I get spoiled for it.
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor– I really enjoyed the first two books in the trilogy and I am looking forward to seeing how the story gets wrapped up. I liked Laini’s writing and I love the characters in this series.
Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz– I liked the first book in this series and I really want to continue with the series. If you are a fan of Disney then I would highly recommend this series. I also picked this book as it will be a bit of an easier read compared to the other books on my TBR.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee– I am trying to read a classic a month although I didn’t get one read in June. This month I want to read this one as my mum really liked it and she told me that I would like it. I might try and read another classic this month to make up for last month but I don’t know whether I will be able to so I didn’t put one on my TBR.
What books are on your TBR this month?
Today I am sharing with you my TBR for June. I only have five books planned for this month and the rest I will decide on as I go along.
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee- I had this on my May TBR but I didn’t get around to it. I am really hoping that I will be able to read this one as I think that I will really enjoy it. The second book comes out in September so I want to read the first one before then so I can decide whether I will be continuing with the series.
Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson- I am really in the mood for a summer contemporary. This one is about a road trip and I think that this book will suit the mood that I am in.
The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald- The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books and I want to read more of Fitzgerald’s work. I tried to read this a couple of years ago but I couldn’t get into it so I really want to try and finish it this month.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt- I don’t know much about this apart from that a couple of years ago everyone was talking about it. This is a big book and I think it might take me awhile to read but I really want to see what all the hype is about.
Where Rainbows End/Love Rosie by Cecelia Ahern- I have only read one book by Cecelia Ahern (Flawed) and I want to check out more from her. This book was turned into a film called Love Rosie which stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. I haven’t seen the film but it is something that I want to watch so I thought I would read the book first.
What books are on your TBR this month?
Today I am sharing with you the books I plan to read in the month of May.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas– I really wanted to reread this book before I started the next book. I read this book in 2015 and whilst I remember the main plot points I really want to refresh my memory before diving back into this world.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas- I have owned this book since it came out last year but I have kept putting it off. I don’t really know why I’ve put it off for so long but this month I really want to read it so I’ll be able to dive straight into A Court of Wings and Ruin.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld- This book has been on my TBR for ages and I really want to make a start on this series. This is a dystopian series where the characters get turned into pretties when they reach 16.
Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes- I’ve been wanting to read more from Jojo Moyes since I read Me Before You. This is a collection of short stories which I am really looking forward to delving into.
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens- This is the classic that I wanted to read this month. I’ve seen the film but never read the book so I really wanted to try it. Great Expectations is one of my favourite classics to I wanted to try more from Dickens.
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee- I’ve wanted to read this book since it was released last year. This is another dystopian and one of the comments on the book says that it is a futuristic Gossip Girl. I really like the sound of this book and I am hoping that it will be really good.
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh- When I first heard about this book I was really intrigued and I was lucky enough to receive a copy from Net Galley. I am really looking forward to reading this as I have only ever heard good things about Renee Ahdieh’s writing.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black- I have never read a Holly Black novel before. This one really appeals to me as it is about vampires and I really enjoy this genre so I am looking forward to trying out this book.
What books do you plan to read this month?
Today I am sharing with you the books that I plan to read in April. I’m not sure how much I will get read this month as it is a very busy month for me.
The Death Cure by James Dashner- This is the third book in The Maze Runner series. I really enjoyed the two previous books so I am looking forward to see how the story progresses. I was meant to read this in March but only got a couple of chapters in so I really hope that I can get it finished this month.
The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord- This is Emery Lord’s latest novel and I am lucky enough to have received a copy from Net Galley. I read When We Collided last year which I was ok but I have really high hopes for this one.
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard- This is the third book in the Red Queen series. Whilst I didn’t love Glass Sword I am interested to see what will happen in this book.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor- I managed to find the whole trilogy on Ebay for £3.79 so I had to pick it up. I am looking forward to reading this first book as I have heard so many good things about this trilogy.
Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris- I received this book for Christmas from my friend and I think it is about time that I read it. I believe this is is about vampires and I am really in the mood for a vampire book.
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie- I am trying to read a classic each month and I have selected Peter Pan for this month. I have only ever seen the Disney film so I am looking forward to reading the book.
Today I am sharing my March TBR. I know it is a little as I have already read some of the books which you will hear more about in my wrap up.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber- I was lucky enough to be able to go to a signing for this book. So I was able to hear Stephanie talk about her book, unfortunately, I had not read the book before the event. I was really excited to read this book and I read it at the start of the month and I really enjoyed it.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas- I really enjoy the Throne of Glass series and when this was released I was really excited for it. When this book came out I was in a massive reading slump so although I did start this I couldn’t get into it and ended up putting it to one side. I really want to get round to this book as the last one in the series comes out later this year and I want to be caught up before then.
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry- If you read my post about WW2 books that I want to read then you will know that this book was on that list. I am really interested in reading more WW2 fiction books as I find that there is so much about the war that I do not know.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline- This is an extremely popular book and I have heard a lot of good things about it. I wasn’t too interested in this book but then my friend told me that I should read it so I am going to give it a go.
The Death Cure by James Dashner- I have I read the first two books in this series and I really enjoyed them so I want to continue with the series. I have a terrible habit of starting series and taking such a long time to read the next book that I forget what has happened in the previous book.
Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll- I read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland last year so I would really like to read the next story. I enjoyed reading about Wonderland and the characters that lived there.
What books do you plan on reading this month?
I don’t very often do TBR posts as I rarely stick to TBRs but this month I really want to get these 5 books read. I have been reading fewer books due to being really busy at university so I haven’t set a massive TBR for this month.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins- This book has been on my TBR for ages and I really need to get to it. I’ve heard so many good things about it and I haven’t read a thriller/ mystery for a while. I also really want to watch the film but I want to read the book before I watch it.
The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye- I meant to read this book last year when it came out but I never got around to it. This is the first book in a fantasy series that is set in Russia. I really like the sound of the setting and I can’t wait to delve into it.
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys- I really enjoy Ruta’s books and this is the only one of hers that I haven’t read yet. As I previously mentioned I want to read more WW2 fiction and I know that this will be good because all her other books have been really good.
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare- I love the Shadowhunter world and it has been awhile since I read anything set in this world. I am really excited for this collection of short stories as I have only heard good things about it.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen- I am trying to read a classic every month and this month I really want to get to this one. I’ve read two other Jane Austen novels and I have really enjoyed them so I would like to read more of her work.
What’s on your TBR for this month?
Today I thought I would share with you the books I plan on reading in April. I hope to read all of these books but don’t know whether I will be able to but I am going to try as some of these have been on my TBR list for awhile.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I read Anna and the French Kiss earlier this year and I really want to read the other 2 books in the series and this is the next one. I am really in the mood for a light contemporary and that is what this book is.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas- I have had this book for such a long time and I really need to read it. I have heard it is heartbreaking but I need to ignore that and just get on and read it before the next book comes out.
Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty- I love Liane Moriarty’s books and I really want to read all of them and this is the next one on my list.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater- People always talk about this series and I have had the first book for quite awhile. I want to read it so I can see what all the hype is about.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton- So many people have been talking about this book and I bought a copy of it recently so I want to dive straight into it. It is part of a new fantasy series and it sounds like the sort of book that I will love.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling- I read this when I was younger but I have never been a fan of the series. I really want to give it another try and I’m hoping that I will enjoy it a lot more this time round.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs- The trailer for the film was released last month and it looks really good. Seeing the trailer made me really want to pick up the book as I know a lot of people love this series.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury- I recently saw this mentioned in Book Haul on Youtube and thought it sounded interesting so when I saw it in a charity shop for £1 I snapped it up. I am looking forward to reading this as it sounds really interesting.
Wake by Amanda Hocking- I really want to read more of Amanda Hocking’s novels and this is the next one on my list to read. I believe it is about mermaids which I am really excited for.
