My TBR has two sections really: things to review and things I can read in my own time. I feel like both of them are like hydras anymore. Read one book and two more appear. The growth for my review pile is crazy because I have to wait for approval. Will I get it? Will it be a day before I need to post a review? Will I actually have time with other approvals? All amazing questions.
And I think it goes without saying, I’m probably not going to read all of these in March, but this is what my TBR looks like as of today. Continue reading March TBR
A few titles are back on my TBR after the holidays and with the semester starting. I’m trying to read more middle grade this semester since I feel like I haven’t touched a lot of it. And I have three ARCs on the list. If anyone has any good, recent, sci-fi bookrecs, please leave them in the comments! Continue reading “February TBR”
It’s time to look at some February titles to judge their covers. Judge a Book by Its Cover is a monthly (sometimes weekly if I’m up for it) book tag that I created. You are free to do it on your … Continue reading Judge a Book by Its Cover #5
I can’t believe all the books I’m looking at this week publish on the same day. Continue reading “Judge a Book by its Cover #4”
Holidays are over folks! Time to talk about books I may or may not request! Continue reading “Judge a Book by its Cover #3”
Felt like I’d do one of these again. They’re pretty fun. Plus, they add a little transparency to the blogging process and how we choose what to request.
The Window by Amelia Brunskill
Release Date: 3 April, 2018
If you love The Third Twin and One of Us Is Lying and binge-watched Thirteen Reasons Why, get ready for a heart-wrenching psychological thriller about a girl who knows her twin sister better than anyone . . . or does she? Taut and atmospheric, The Window will keep you guessing until the end.
Secrets have a way of getting out. . . .
Anna is everything her identical twin is not. Outgoing and athletic, she is the opposite of quiet introvert Jess. The same on the outside, yet so completely different inside–it’s hard to believe the girls are sisters, let alone twins. But they are. And they tell each other everything.
Or so Jess thought.
After Anna falls to her death while sneaking out her bedroom window, Jess’s life begins to unravel. Everyone says it was an accident, but to Jess, that doesn’t add up. Where was Anna going? Who was she meeting? And how long had Anna been lying to her?
Jess is compelled to learn everything she can about the sister she thought she knew. At first it’s a way to stay busy and find closure . . . but Jess soon discovers that her twin kept a lot of secrets. And as she digs deeper, she learns that the answers she’s looking for may be truths that no one wants her to uncover.
Because Anna wasn’t the only one with secrets.

It’s time to judge a book by its cover! I’ve picked out a few upcoming books to take a look at and see if I’d request them.
Furyborn by Claire Legrand
Release Date: 22 Mary 2018
The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable―until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world―and of each other.

I read so few books in October. I’m hoping to get to these books this month.

I realized I haven’t done a tag in way too long, so I went a digging and found this one. Here it goes!
You must be honest
You must answer all the questions
You must tag at least 4 people
1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?
Oooh… probably Harry Potter to be honest. My poor beat up old copies even have their own shelf!
2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?
I am currently reading Voyage to Avalon by Julie Leung, I just finished Alaexandra Bracken’s The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding, and I will probably move into Lumberjanes next. Although, I’m not entirely sure that I won’t pick up something else.
3. What book did everyone like, but you hated?
Toooooo many to name.
4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
The rest of Maze Runner. Seriously. I have this nice collectors edition, it’s signed, and I just keep it on my shelf.
5. What book are you saving for retirement?
None? Continue reading “I Dare You Book Tag”
Going to be a slow September apparently. I’m super excited that I was approved for the second Mice of the Round Table by Julie Leung. I’ve had This Darkness Mine for a little bit now and I really need to get it … Continue reading September TBR
