#tagthursday The TBR Book Tag

ew

I don’t know about you but I have way too many books on my TBR pile. I think if I were to pile all the books I have on my TBR list, it would reach the top of Paris! 🙂 I think that it’s only right that the tag I do this Thursday is the TBR Book Tag! I saw this tag on the blog Bookshelves & Biros and thought this was a very fitting tag! I would love to hear some of the books you have on your TBR down in the comments below!

how do you keep track of your tbr pile?

Confession time: I actually don’t! (hehe) I just have heaps of book titles swimming around in my mind. If I am looking for a book, I do have an abandoned shelf on my Goodreads or I’ll go to Bookstagram and recognise a book that was on my TBR. There are just so many books out there that look so intriguing and I know that I’ll never run out of books to read

is your tbr mostly print or ebook?

Definitely, mostly print because if there is one thing I do not enjoy about reading its ebooks. I just started wearing glasses (Oh boy do I hate glasses…I actually have so much respect for those who wear them all the time,) and it’s most likely because I used to read books on my Ipad all the time and that was definitely a horrible decision. Now, I try to read printed books, which is why my TBR pile is mainly printed books.

a book that has been on your tbr pile the longest:

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Store. I have been eyeing this book before it’s release date and around the time, I started this blog, which was about a year or so ago and for me that is a long time. I loved the blurb and storyline. I’ve only heard very good reviews for this book and I have to get around to it soon!

a book you recently added to your tbr pile:

I recently added, Yellow by Megan Jacobson to my TBR pile. I loved the idea and concept for this book and it’s a mash with supernatural and contemporary! How good is that? This is definitely one of my recent additions to my list!

a book on your tbr strictly because of its beautiful cover:

A Thousand Nights by E.K Johnston. Both the hardback and the paperback are gorgeous and that is definitely a win-win situation. Not only that but I love any book that has a story inspired by a fairytale. I definitely have this book on the top of TBR and I’m actually flailing while I write this! 🙂

a book on your tbr that you never plan on reading

Truthwitch. I’m sorry guys but the blurb doesn’t seem that amazing andI’ve heard mixed reviews about it. I probably won’t be reading this anytime  soon  at all.

an unpublished book that you are excited for

I don’t really know because I don’t read anything that hasn’t been actually put on the list as potentially published. However, I am super excited for The Rose and The Dagger!! OMG! OMG! I actually can’t wait! I fell in love with this book last year and I desperately need the next one!

a book on your tbr that everyone has read but you

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. Everyone I know has read this. I swear. I enjoyed Red Queen but to me, it was nothing extremely special. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed this book but I just didn’t feel motivated to pick up Glass Sword. Hopefully, I’ll read it soon!

a book on your tbr everyone has recommended to you that you are dying to read:

This would definitely have to be Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! I’ve only heard very positive reviews of this book and apparently it is an adorable book! I am definitely up for anything that is super adorable! I am dying to read this and hopefully, I’ll read it this month!

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?
