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.

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!

My Blog’s Name in Books

I saw this book meme posted by Jenn @ Bound To Writing and I couldn’t resist joining the fun. This book meme was originally started by Lynne @ Fictionophile and I thought it would be a great way to shine a light upon some of the books still pending on my TBR list.

THE RULES:

1.  Spell out your blog’s name. (this is where you wish your blog’s name was shorter LOL)

2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. (Note you cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodread’s TBR)

3. Have fun!  

I was actually surprised it was relatively easy to find books for my blog name… Partly because my TBR list on Goodreads is HUGE, and partly because It’s All About Books doesn’t have any tricky letters. (Phew! 😉 ) Let’s go see which books I’ve chosen to write my blog name with…

I : I Let You Go – by Clare Mackintosh
T : Talon – by Julie Kagawa
S : Saint Anything – by Sarah Dessen

A : A Tale For The Time Being – by Ruth Ozeki
L : Lair Of Dreams – by Libba Bray
L : Library Of Souls – by Ransom Riggs

A : An Ember In The Ashes – by Sabaa Tahir
B : Britt-Marie Was Here – by Fredrik Backman
O : Outlander – by Diana Gabaldon
U : Uprooted – by Naomi Novik
T : Tell The Wolves I’m Home – by Carol Rifka Brunt

B : Blue Blood – by Sara Blaedel
O : Outrun The Moon – by Stacey Lee
O : One Of Us – by Asne Seierstad
K : Kids Of Appetite – by David Arnold
S : Splintered – by A.G. Howard


Have you read any of these titles yourself? Would you recommend them? Any of these titles I should avoid reading? Feel free to comment. 🙂

July 2018 TBR

Somehow we have now officially started with the second half of 2018. When did that happen?! Time is seriously going way too fast… June was a really good month bookish wise and I managed to read more than I thought I would. And somehow I actually read all of the books on my June TBR as well. Yes, you read that right: I actually managed to squeeze in all ten of the titles below in between other books last month. Woohoo!

>>> 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 managed to make a good dent into my ARC TBR, so I’m happy to say I’ll be able to read more of my backlist books this month. Yay for reading my own books again! I have a few ARCs pending, and knowing myself, I know more will pop up, but I’m hoping to also be able to read a few of the other titles on here. And I’m finally picking up my first Dutch read of the year! Or at least that’s the plan haha.

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. 😉

  • The Lost For Words Bookshop by Stephanie Butland (304 pages) NETGALLEY

April-May 2018 TBR

Wait, it’s April already? And the season has changed? Where on earth did the first three months of 2018 go?? March was a great reading month and I managed to read almost every book on my March TBR, which is a first. The only reason I didn’t pick up The Dream Thieves is because I don’t have time for the other sequels right now and prefer to read them all together. Hopefully when I’m back from my trip!

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

 Since I will be going on a hiatus starting April 23rd and won’t be back until June, I’ve decided to make a TBR for the next two months instead. I’m not sure how much time I’ll be having during our travels in Europe, but we’ll see how things go I guess. The TBR below is a mix of pending ARCs I’m going to try and get to before our trip and titles I’ve been wanting to read for a while. Looking forward to these!

Upcoming ARC Reads

As I revealed last week, we will be going on a Eurotrip starting April 24th and It’s All About Books will be going on an Eurotrip hiatus from April 23rd to June 1st. I will be trying to get rid of most of my ARC backlog before the trip, and won’t be accepting new ones (except for a few titles that were already on my radar) for the time being. I already have a similar list on my Excel spreadsheet, but I wanted to break down the pending ARCs on my pile by month for easy viewing. It’s also a great opportunity to show what will be coming up on my blog before my break!

Here we go… The pending NG ARCs have been listed by publish month and the other pending ARCs are listed at the very end.

APRIL 2018

Publish date: April 10th

MAY 2018

Publish date: May 1st 

Publish date: May 15th

Publish date: May 15th

Publish date: May 31st

OTHER ARCs


Have you read any of these titles above? Can you recommend them? I’m looking forward to these, but I’m especially excited about Bring Me Back and The 7 1/2 Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle!!

March 2018 TBR

I can’t believe we’re already starting the third month of 2018! Time is flying by way too fast… And it’s already time to decide what I will be reading during my birthday month. My February TBR was a moderate success with 6 out of 10 books read… Not bad considering the fact I had a LOT of unplanned ARCs popping up last month, making it impossible to get to all of the titles in time. The four pending titles will go straight to my March TBR though! Although I’m not sure if I will have time to binge read the Raven Cycle books this month with all those pending ARCs. xD

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

Six of the titles below are ARCs that either I was ment to have read by now (sorry!) or are NG titles that are coming up soon. One of them is even my very first blog tour title!  The other titles are partly series I want to finally finish, but also a TBR jar pick and a book I have been wanting to pick up ever since it was published (Salt To The Sea). Looking forward to these!
