One extremely long #tbr list…

213

HELLO!!!

Winter has struck here, where I live and it has been frigid cold every day. I’m hoping every day that I won’t catch a cold and every day consists of warm blankets and toasty heaters. However, another important thing that warms me up on a winter day is a good book. I haven’t been reading as much as I would like. (Blame it on Gossip Girl) This means that my TBR list is piling and piling with books. Today I decided to show you some of the many books on my TBR:

romance contemporaries

Contemporaries are vital to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside because the romance in them fills my heart with joy. I’ve been craving contemporaries for a very long time and I can’t wait to fall in love with the characters in these books!

series and trilogies

I need to find a good series ASAP because I’ve been in a mini reading slump for ages. I miss jumping into exciting new worlds and having my heart wrenched from various plot twists. Which series do you think I should read next?

plus more:

I don’t just have contemporaries and series on my TBR I also have other stand-alones and upcoming releases that have been sitting on my TBR for ages!

So that is my tbr!!! Hopefully, I’ll get around to some of these books soon! Collecting and reading the synopses of all these novels have just gotten me so so excited to read them!

What is are some novels on your TBR? 🙂

Top 5 Most Anticipated Releases for 2016

2016 is here and honestly, I am blown away! 2015 zoomed past us right before our eyes and it’s like a new revelation. With a new year, comes a fresh start and new opportunities. Not only that but it also means that we are getting closer to the releases of so many new novels. Many new series debuted their first novel and in 2016, will finish or continue with the releases of the next books in the series! I’m sure many of you will be excited for the launch of some books but here are my five most anticipated reads for 2015:

  1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices)
    Lady Midnight is one of most anticipated reads that have been floating around. After the conclusion of The Mortal Instruments, I know I have been itching to read anything else about the Shadowhunters world. Even though, we won’t see the old characters, I’m excited to start this fresh new series that will get me marking every release date of the series, in my calendar.
  2. A Sword Of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
    A Court of Thorns and Roses was extremely popular this year and it honestly did live up to its hype, as I loved it! It isn’t a surprise that I am highly awaiting the next book in the series!
  3. The Rose and The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
    If you have read my previous post on the first book in this series, The Wrath and The Dawn, you would know that it was a page-turning and thrilling read. I can’t wait to see what will be in store for the next book, The Rose and The Dagger!
  4. The Problem WIth Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
    Yes, another Jennifer L. Armentrout! *que the squealing 🙂 * Sadly it won’t be a Dark Elements nor a Lux novel but it is a contemporary. The Problem With Forever is a contemporary, which will be new. I enjoyed Don’t Look Back but that was more mystery than contemporary. I’m excited to see how Jennifer L. Armentrout’s contemporary writing!
  5. The Last Star by Rick Yancey
    I have been a big fan of the 5th Wave series and this will unfortunately be the last novel in the trilogy! I’m super excited for the movie as Chloe Grace Moretz and the rest of the cast seem fitting for this book. I love these novels and I can’t wait to read this much anticipated novel!

    Which books are you looking forward to reading next year?

TBR List for July

Hi Guys!

I haven’t done a TBR list in ages and so I have a TBR list with five series and novels I want to read soon! I have read heaps of books this holiday and I’ll be doing a big book haul this week! I am currently reading I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson and I will be reading Another Day by David Leviathan and Amanda Hocking’s Kanin series, which I am super pumped to start. What are you currently reading and what is the next book you will read?

1) Catch A Falling Star by Kim Culbertson
I have a friend who absolutely loves this contemporary romance novel and her excitement has rubbed off on me. I really want to read this book and I’ll definitely start this super soon. This books kind of reminds me of Open Road Summer. It follows the story of Carter, who is the average town girl, and Jake, who is America’s number one boy celebrity. Carter has no interest whatsoever in Jake even though everyone around her is heads over heels for him, but one day she is offered the chance to become Jake’s fill-in girlfriend for some big dollars. Carter takes the chance but slowly something starts to happen to both of them.

2) The Grisha Series by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve heard lots about this book but to be frank with you, I have no idea what this series is about. 🙂 I do know that it is fantasy. After reading the blurb on Goodreads, I now know that it is based around a refugee who can save the world the Grisha series is set in. If you have read this series please tell me if it’s good!

3) Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
This is another novel which was recommended to me by another friend. It has been around quite a lot basically it is ,a Mulan like story, that revolves around princess Lia who escapes her arranged marriage to a new life in a new village. One day, in her new town two handsome strangers visit and she learns that trust and deception are a tight line to walk on.

4) An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
An Ember In The Ashes is a really buzzing new release novel, that you probably have heard of. It was such a hit that now they are making a movie of the novel. I still haven’t gotten around to this novel yet. It is a fantasy novel that is set in a world inspired by Ancient Rome. Laia’s brother is arrested and in order to save him she must risk her life to spy within the Empire’s military school. She meets Elias ,who is a prodigy, and together they realize they are fated to meet. The summary really sounds like Legend, which I really like, so, I am super excited to start this novel.

5) Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
Meira belongs to the Kingdom of Winter, where they horribly crumbled and conquered and now they are left with no magic or queen. Meira was orphaned by the conquering of the kingdom and now all she wants is revenge. She has always been in love with her best friend but now she is on a journey to finally get sweet revenge and it doesn’t exactly go to plan.

These are 5 books that are on my TBR list! Hopefully, I’ll get around to them soon!

Mini TBR List and Update!

Hello!!!

School has been crazy and I haven’t really been writing as much as I would like. I promise to write more soon! I have a Bookmarks DIY coming soon which I am really excited about, I will also be reading a lot more as I haven’t been reading as much because I have been catching up with Teen Wolf :)! I am planning on reading a lot of book before June ends and that means more reviews!!!

It is also my birthday today. Haha! Yes, on memorial day but I am super excited!!! I am currently reading the Sweet Evil Trilogy, Half-Bad and The Sunlit Night. I am juggling three books which is something I haven’t done before but there is always a first!!! 🙂 Now for my mini TBR which will consists of the next five books I will be reading soon:

The Program by Suzanne Young
A new duology, The Program by Suzanne Young is a dystopian read. I have heard lots about this series and it seems really interesting. In revolves around the world of Sloane where an “epidemic” (Depression) has hit her country and Sloane and her boyfriend, James have got to keep fighting against their depression before they have to go through the Program, a place where many go to wipe out all their memories. I haven’t read a dystopian in ages and I think this one will get me back into the genre!

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Or pretty much any Sarah Dessen contemporary. Famous for her contemporary romances, Sarah Dessen’s latest novel is Saint Anything.There is a lot of hype around her novels but yet I haven’t read any of them. Sydney is an overlooked girl in her family who spends most of her life worrying about her brother, Peyton’s reckless life. One day she finds a Mac’s family who welcome her with warm hands and Sydney finally feels like she belongs.

The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski
A fairly new trilogy, Marie Rutkoski Winner’s Trilogy is a series I have high up on my TBR list. It is a high fantasy and revolves around themes such as hierarchy and love. The main character Kestrel is a warrior and must choose between the military and marriage. She finds a human slave, Arin, for auction and buys him but it isn’t long before she falls in love with him

We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist 
Is a novel similar to Popular by Maya Van Wagenen and is a real, true contemporary based on the author’s life. Josh Sundquist is a paraplegic who has been single for nearly his whole life and this story follow his investigation on how he ended up with his currently love life.

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
The cover is so pretty!!! This book recently came out and I think it is part of Melissa Grey’s latest series. Apparently this novel is for fans of The Mortal Instruments and it revolves around a world hidden in New York (Yes, like City of Bones). The main character, Echo, has to try to end a long-going conflict before it is too late.

That’s all for my mini TBR List. I will definitely be posting a lot more in the future!

The following books are books that have been waiting on my list for quite a while. They are not written in order.

Suddenly, her whole world is torn in two.

2. The Second and Third Books in The Darkest Minds Trilogy: By- Alexandra Bracken
The next book series I have on my list is Never Fade and In The Afterlight, which are the second and third books in The Darkest Minds Trilogy. I read the first book but I still need the last two books. The Darkest Minds, is a series following a girl named Ruby who has a special power and in the first book we follow her, Liam and a few others onto a journey to fight back against the government. It is written beautifully and hopefully, I can get my hands on the next two books.

3. I Was Here: By- Gayle Forman

One day, Meg commits suicide and Cody is thrown into a world a drama. Cody packs Megs belongings and finds fragments about her life she never told him. Then he finds an encrypted computer file and when figures out a way to open the file he discovers Meg’s death isn’t what it seems like.

4. Maybe Someday: By- Colleen Hoover
Colleen Hoover is known for her famous romance novels and Maybe Someday seemed like a great read. It is about a girl named, Sydney who believes she has a perfect life, except one day she discovers her boyfriend, Hunter is cheating on her. After that encounter, she is left wondering what to do next. She meets Ridge, her neighbour, and she is mesmerised by the music he plays everyday. Ridge is also mesmerised by her. The story follows their love story.

This book has been around for quite a while and I have been eyeing for quite some time, as well. It’s about a guy named, A and everyday he is in a different body and everyday he lives a different lover. However, he always loves this one girl. This book is about his romance.

6. 13 Reasons Why: By- Jay Asher
This book is a very popular Young-Adult Contemporary. It is about Clay and one day he returns home to find a box with his name on it. He finds out that inside the box are 13 recording tapes from Hannah, who is his classmate and crush but recently, committed suicide. On each of the tapes there is one reason for why Hannah committed suicide and Jay is one of the reasons.

7. I’ll Give You The Sun: By- Jandy Nelson
This is a new novel that is another contemporary. It is about a pair of twins, Noah and Jude. When they are thirteen, Noah falls in love with the boy next door and outgoing Jude does the talking for Noah. Three years later, they are both barely speaking. This novel goes through the touching story of the twins.

8. Since You’ve Been Gone: By- Morgan Matson
I love the cover for this book and I love the storyline. It’s about two friends, Emily and Sloane. Sloane is the crazy one and makes Emily step out of her comfort zone, without her Emily wouldn’t be who she is today. Then one summer Sloane mysteriously disappears and Emily is left with a bucket list of things Sloane wants her to do. She makes it her goal to finish all the things on the list by the end of summer and with help from Frank Porter she sets out to finish the list.

9. Precious Stone Trilogy: By- Kersten Gier (Translator: Anthea Bell)
This book is also really popular but you may know it as Ruby Red. It was originally German but was then translated by Anthea Bell to English. It seems like a really good book. I do not know much about it but I do know it is about time travel and is set in historical and contemporary London.

10. A Thousand Pieces of You: By- Claudia Gray
This book is sooooo pretty. The cover is amazing, if you haven’t seen it go search it up because it is truly amazing. It is part of a series called Firebird. It is about Marguerite and her parents created a portal to jump into parallel universes. The invention is called Firebird. Her father is suddenly murdered and Marguerite discovers he was killed by Paul, her parents assistant, but Paul jumps into the portal to escape from the law. Marguerite jumps in after Paul and the chase continues and their life slowly twists together.

Here are many books I really want to read:
