Reading through these Summer days | August TBR

I feel really good about how I did last month and I hope this month goes well too!

We’ll see how I do. I’m really hoping I can carry July’s momentum into August! (And I’m hoping to be a little more active on the blogosphere too…)

May flowers bring June power (reading) | June TBR

This is the month of the big move! We’ll be moving within the next few days and after that we’ll be settling into our new place, our new lives. I’m so hoping to have time to read. If I do, here’s what I’m planning to get to this month.

I’m trying to keep it pretty simple this month and we’ll see how that goes.

February TBR

In February, I have a couple of book club books to get to and some stuff for work. I’m hoping to get to some other fun stuff too, though! (Not that the other stuff isn’t fun, but when it’s assigned, it’s a little different).

I’ll limit myself to that for now. I didn’t get through as many books as I would have liked last month–we’ll see how this month goes.

January Wrap-Up & TBR Update

I did an okay job sticking to my TBR. Not fantastic (I should have known I couldn’t stop at the first book in a series) but I did alright. And I even did a good job of posting reviews for the books I read this month!

Top Ten Tuesday: Loaded Gift Card = Grabby Hands

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is: Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card

This would seriously be a dream come true. There are SO MANY BOOKS I would want to buy. Here’s just a brief list of my top picks in no specific order.

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall – I’ve heard good things about this book and its premise seems right up my alley.

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn – I LOVE Morgan Matson’s books, but have yet to try any of her Katie Finn stuff. I think I’m a little scared that I won’t like it as much…

Summer Days, Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins – I really enjoyed the holiday version of this book and I can’t wait to get my hands on this collection of short summer stories!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer – I seriously need to pre-order this ASAP. The Lunar Chronicles are some of my top books so I can’t wait to read her new retelling.

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows – I read a sample of this one and thought it was hilarious.

Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse – This is another one that I read a sample of. I liked the main character right away and I’m always down for a WWII story.

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer – I’m usually an anti-fan of the novellas and short stories that authors seem to be producing these days (it just feels like the authors are trying to milk as much money out of me as possible sometimes–if it’s important to the story, just put it in the book!). That being said, I’d totally pay for Lunar Chronicles short stories (give me more Iko and Thorne plz).

Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin – Anyone who has spent any time on my blog must know two things about me by now. 1) I love Sarah Dessen. 2) I loved Wolf by Wolf! So this one is basically a no-brainer.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber – After reading a sample of this one, it quickly made it’s way to my most anticipated for 2017 list. This book sounds SO GOOD.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – I’ve read the first half of this series probably about four times, but I have a hard time getting past The Goblet of Fire when I’m rereading. I’d definitely like to have my own copy of this series.
