January 2019 TBR

I am shocked that in only two days I will have to start typing 2019 and this year is officially over. Where did 2018 go? I’m posting my January 2019 TBR a bit early this year, because I’m not sure in what state I will be on the first. ūüėČ December turned out to be a super busy month and I didn’t read as much as previous months… Probably why I didn’t read all the titles on my December TBR. All three remaining titles passed straight to the next month though.

I was hoping to start reading my own books in 2019, but I have so many pending ARCs that that just isn’t in the cards for now. Most of my January TBR is made out of ARCs, with a few backlist titles thrown in to mix things up. Although I’ll probably end up more backlist titles in the end. ūüėČ

December 2018 TBR

I have no clue how this year can be already almost over, but it is what it is I guess… November ended up being a really successful month bookish wise, and I managed to read thirteen out of the fifteen books on my monthly TBR. I’m saving A Spark Of Light for next year, but as I type this I’ve finally started with Outlander… Fingers crossed it will treat me well.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I was going to spend December reading mostly my own books, but I have so many ARCs pending that that just isn’t going to happen. So more pending NG ARCs it is… I also still need to read two titles to finish two challenges (Outlander and Girl With A Pearl Earring), titles I’m hoping to finish before December 15th so I don’t have to worry about making the deadlines.

November 2018 TBR

I can repeat once again that I can’t believe another month is over, but I guess that line is getting old. ūüėČ November though? Only two more months and we’ll be writing 2019 everywhere… My October TBR was pretty successful overall with eight out of ten titles read. I still want to read the other two, but they will have to wait until I have more time I guess.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m trying to get rid of most of my 2018 NG ARCs early so I can spend the last month of 2018 mostly reading my own books… But since I always like reading as many of the nominated Goodreads Choice Awards books each year, I’m sure I’ll end up reading more of those instead of ARCs. xD And YES, I’m finally going to brave reading Outlander, although I’m not sure if I’ll get to it before the end of the month. It’s taken me years already, so I guess a little while longer doesn’t do any damage. ūüėČ

October 2018 TBR

Wait: it’s October?! As in, only three months of 2018 left?! Seriously where did all those months go… Last month’s N.E.W.T.s Readathon was a huge success (final post about that coming soon), and somehow I managed to read most of the books on the TBR. A true miracle if you ask me! I’ve decided to add only one of the remaining titles to this month’s TBR; the other titles will have to wait until later…

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m a bit behind with my pending ARCs, so you’ll find a lot of ARCs on my October TBR. I was initially going for a full Halloween TBR, but since a lot of the ARCs are thrillers in the first place, I’ve decided to throw in a few different genres as well. I’ll be looking forward to these!

August 2018 TBR

How on earth can it be August already?! Time is seriously going way too fast… July was another good month bookish wise and I managed to read more than I thought I would. And I came really close to finishing my monthly TBR for the second month in a row! Only one book left, although technically I should cross it off as well since I’m currently buddy reading it with Nicki @ Secret Library and will be able to finish it soon.

>>> Find a complete list of the books of books owned and waiting to be read here and my full TBR list at Goodreads here <<<

I’m a bit behind with my pending ARCs, so you’ll find a lot of ARCs on my August TBR. I’m also planning to read my last pending (modern) classic, which counts as my final Reading Through The Centuries titles as well… And I’m hoping to cross off my final international author too. There are a lot of titles I’m really excited about on here so fingers crossed for a great August!

June 2018 TBR

Somehow it’s June already and we are already almost halfway through 2018. When did that happen?! It’s time to check on how I did on my April-May TBR list, and spoiler: I totally failed to stick to it. Oh yes, my last TBR was pretty hopeless as I only read a meager third of the books I was supposed to read (and those were all pending ARCs I had to read before my trip). I guess it does show I gave myself the gift of reading my own books during my hiatus haha. I still want to read the other titles on the list as well though, and you’ll see quite a few on this month’s TBR.

>>> Find a complete list of the books of books owned and waiting to be read here and my full TBR list at Goodreads here <<<

While it was great being able to pick up my own titles again, it does mean I’m now behind with my pending ARCs… And I have a ton that are due in June. Oops? So the TBR below includes a lot of ARCs, although I have a few other titles thrown in as well. And I might just read one or two of my new physical titles instead of the ones mentioned below, but we’ll see how things go this month. ūüėČ

August/September 2016 TBR

augustseptembertbr

I have WAY¬†too many books waiting for me on my TBR shelf, so I started¬†making a monthly TBR to help¬†me decide what to read next.¬†July turned out to be a great month and I was able to read 9! out of 10 titles on the list. And the only reason I didn’t read the last title (The Problem With Forever) because I saw some negative reviews and I wasn’t sure that book would be for me after all…

july2016tbrdone

Since I will be traveling to the Netherlands this August 14th for paperwork and I have no idea when I will be back home (weeks, months??), I have decided to do things differently and make a list of books I would like to read while I’m on a blogging hiatus. (Of course I will still review these books when I’m back!)

# BOOKS I WANT TO READ #

acourtofmistandfury

A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas (640 pages)
I really enjoyed the first book last year and need to read the sequel! I will probably have to reread ACOTAR first though, because I can’t seem to remember all the details when I tried reading this one a while ago.

adancewithdragons

A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin (1.125 pages)
I just checked, and it has been more than TWO years since I finished¬†A Feast For Crows. I know George R.R.¬†Martin is particularly slow when it comes to publishing his books anyway, but I guess it’s about time I tackle this monster. A Dance With Dragons will be my priority read while I’m away!

fallenmangrove

Fallen Mangrove by Wayne Stinnett (301 pages)
I want to read this one mostly because of the setting in¬†1566; I still need a book set in¬†the 16th century for the When Are You Reading? Challenge and I don’t have any other titles on my TBR pile.

inkandbone

Ink And Bone by Rachel Caine (352 pages)
I have been wanting to start this series ever since I first heard about it! I also have a copy of the sequel, so if I like this one I will probably read the sequel as well. It sure sounds like a great read to me.

lasombradelviento

La Sombra Del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafón (576 pages)
This book is probably one of my all time favorites and I have been wanting to reread it in Spanish for ages now… I also finally want to read the sequels, so it’s a great excuse to pick this one up again.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (896 pages)
To be honest, I’m not sure if this book would be for me and it’s HUGE. Still, I have been wanting to give this series a go for ages and I need it for the 18th century setting in the When Are You Reading? Challenge, so this hiatus is a great excuse to spend some time with this book.

redrisingtrilogy

Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown (382 + 430 + 523 pages)
I NEED to read this series ASAP! I’ve heard so many great things about it and it sounds exactly like a story I would love. No more excuses: I will pick up these three books.

secretletters

Secret Letters by Leah Scheier (336 pages)
This is my newest TBR jar pick and probably the last one until I’m back (unless I finish it before I leave and pick another one). I like Sherlock Holmes retellings so I’m keeping my fingers crossed this one will be good!

theartofbeingnormal

The Art Of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson (353 pages)
I’ve heard great things about this book and can’t wait to read it myself! I hope it will live up to the raving reviews…

thissavagesong

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (464 pages)
I actually wanted to read Vicious first, but I’ve heard so many great things about this one that I just can’t resist the temptation. I will definitely read This Savage Song first now, but I also want to try and read Vicious soon as well…
