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:
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!
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?
The Raven Cycle Series | Maggie Stiefvater
The hype around this series is unreal and it has been all I've ever heard this year! I have to read it!
The Lunar Chronicles | Marissa Meyer
I still haven't finished this! I am determined to finish it by the end of the year!
Grisha Trilogy | Leigh Bardough
Another very hyped up series! I hope it lives up to my expectations, which are extremely high!
A Darker Shade of Magic | V.E. Schwab
A book about magic and parallel universes. It sounds so unique and different!
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!
Love That Split the World | Emily Henry
I've heard both negative and positive reviews! I want to read this and decide myself whether this is a yay or nay!
Dreamology | Lucy Keating
Another gorgeous cover! Doesn't the title just sound intriguing?
Unrivaled | Alyson Noel
A suspense novel set in Hollywood, sounds just like something I'll love.
The Beauty of Darkness | Mary E. Pearson
#TEAMRAFE ALL THE WAY! Words cannot express how excited I am to read this novel!
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!
Yes, I am writing this on the fifteenth of July even though this post should have been scheduled on the first of July. Sorry 🙂
June has been a very ordinary, yet exciting month. I was greatly disappointed due to the fact that I hadn’t read much at all in the month of June but I was also super excited for the holidays. Despite the fact that school was dragging along slowly when the holidays finally arrived I couldn’t contain my excitement, especially because we were going away. I visited many different places and it felt like such a relief to have the pressure of school lifted off of my shoulders. However, school has started again and I am so not ready but nevertheless, I am going to try to make this term a good one. Also, last month I took a few breaks with blogging and it felt nice to take a break but that still doesn’t excuse the fact that I love blogging and instagraming, which is why I’ll be posting lots more soon! Here are some of my favourites from last month:
Here are some of my recent obsessions!
I have been obsessed with Often by Kygo and of course, Shawn Mendes’ new song Treat You Better! I have literally been playing them on repeat and I can not get enough! I have been really loving I Heart Radio recently. Instead of playing my spotify playlist, sometimes I’ll put on a hit music station from the website. I’ve been loving the LA I Heart Radio Hits Station the most.
I only just started this show, so no spoilers, please! I watch TV shows awfully slow and although I started this show two months ago I’m only on season two. I try to watch it when I have spare time but the drama and gossip in this TV show is so so good. It may sound weird that I enjoy watching people gossip about others but this TV show is honestly one big web of interlocking events that has kept me so entertained!
Well…I’ve always had an obsession with shopping but because I have been shopping a lot lately, I thought why not add it to my obsessions list? I’m more of a summer girl and so lately I have been lots buying of summer dresses, some sweatshirts and bags. I recently visited this mall, which was huge! I spent nearly two days there shopping and I still haven’t visited every store in the mall. I bought heaps of stuff there and I can’t wait to wear and use them .
june reads + book hauls
As I mentioned earlier June was a disappointing reading month. I only read a few books, which include Rebel Of The Sands, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Last Star and The Leaving. Hopefully, July will be much more exciting in terms of books and I can’t wait to dive into some good books. Here are some of the books I got this month:
The Last Star by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave #3)
Blood In The Beginning by Kim Falconer (Ava Sykes Series)
When Michael Met Mina by Randa Abdel-Fattah
The Girl From Everywhere by Heide Heilig
Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Caramel Hearts by E. R. Murray
Here are some of goals for this month:
– To workout more intensively and for more periods of time, as well as eating a proper healthy diet.
– To actually work on my blog and Instagram more seriously and with a proper effort and attitude. (*cough* as you can see that didn’t really happen for the first half of the month but there are still 16 more days)
– Write some more lifestyle posts!
– To balance most things in my life, especially the reading facet of my life. This brings me to my next point my July TBR.
Caramel Hearts by E.R. Murray
The Blood In The Beginning by Kim Falconer
The Girl From Everywhere by Heide Heilig
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Yay! So this is my June + July wrap-up and TBR! List some books you want to read this month, so I can add it to my own TBR! What have been your recent obsessions?
