August 2017 TBR

I just can’t believe we’ll be starting month number 8 of 2017 tomorrow already!! This year is flying by way too fast… Despite my recent slump, I somehow managed to read and review all TEN books on my July TBR! I don’t think this has happened before, although I guess it did help that most titles were ARCs with upcoming deadlines haha.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve decided to dedicate August mostly to my own books and finally read those titles I’ve been posponing for way too long due to my ARC overload. True, two of these are still ARCs, but I’m excited for both so they don’t count right? I’ve also added five more titles of my ‘non-ARC titles I have on my need-to-read-ASAP‘ list, which will hopefully mean I will have made a huge dent in the list (9/15 if I read all) by the end of the month. Also I might reread This Savage Song as well before I read the sequel.

July 2017 TBR

I just can’t believe it’s July already… It seems like only last week we celebrated New Years, but I guess the calendar doesn’t lie haha. I managed to read quite a lot of books in June, although I did pretty bad actually sticking to my monthly TBR. Only five out of ten this time, and the fact I feel terrible that I didn’t read the two non-ARCs I promised myself I would read. Shame on me! All these titles go straight to my July TBR though. 😉

I was hoping to make a true dent into my ARC mountain last month, but even though I read lots of ARCs last month I still have a huge pile left. So I guess it will be another month with a lot of ARCs… Although I’m determined to read at least a few titles of my ‘non-ARC titles I have on my need-to-read-ASAP‘ list this time as well as possibly a classic and/or Dutch/Spanish book.

June 2017 TBR

Wait, what? It’s June already? JUNE? I can’t believe we’re already starting the sixth month of 2017… And hey June, don’t let me down. 😉 May was a really good reading month even though I didn’t get through all the books on my TBR… Blame my Netgalley request addiction and other ARCs that came up first. 7 out of 10 isn’t a bad number at all though, and since I’m currently reading The Gypsy Moth Summer it’s technically almost eight.

>>> 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 still have a huge pile of ARCs even after reading no less than 18! ARCs last month, so June will be another ARC-heavy month. I’m determined to read at least a few titles of my ‘non-ARC titles I have on my need-to-read-ASAP‘ list as well though, as well as possibly a classic and/or Dutch/Spanish book.

15 Non-ARCs I want to read ASAP

Those who follow my blog regularly have probably realized by now this year has been all about my ARCs so far… I have a huge backlog of ARCs and I’ve been slowly trying to scale the ARC mountain, and it does show in my reading numbers. More than 70% of the books I’ve read so far in 2017 have been ARCs!! I do love my ARCs, but I feel like I’ve been neglecting all those poor non-ARCs on my TBR pile for way too long now… So I decided to sit down, browse my owned books and compile a list of the fifteen titles I want to get to first. They are from a mix of different genres and both new and older releases; here we go!


Have you read any of these titles? Which do you recommend I should pick up first? Feel free to comment! 🙂

May 2017 TBR

I can’t believe it’s already the fifth month of 2017… April passed in the blink of an eye, and somehow I managed to read quite a lot. The #AVAReadathon (A Very ARCish Readathon hosted by Aimal at Bookmarks And Paperbacks) helped me read a LOT of ARCs, with no less than 13 read AND reviewed ARCs in a month (the last one to be published later today). I only managed to read 6 out of the 10 titles on my April TBR though, which was mostly because I decided to pick up different ARCs instead and I wasn’t in the mood for fantasy reads for most of the month.

Even though I made April into an ARC month, somehow my NG ratio dropped to 81% anyway… Oops? So I’ve decided to squeeze in another ARC month in May with the hopes I will be able to get to at least a few of my own books in June. (I know that is probably wishful thinking though) Most of the books on my May TBR are ARCs of a variety of genres, with one exception: the historical fiction novel Lilac Girls which I have been wanting to read for ages now.

April 2017 TBR

The first three months on 2017 have literally disappeared into thin air and I can’t believe it’s April already. March was a great month with lots of positive things happening… With the highlight probably being the arrival of our new kitten Lila (named after Delilah Bard). Bookishly speaking, March was also a great month and I managed to read no less than eight titles on last month’s TBR. Definitely more than I was hoping for! 😀

This month I will be participating in the #AVAReadathon (A Very ARCish Readathon) hosted by Aimal at Bookmarks And Paperbacks, so my April TBR will basically be packed with ARCs again this month. I’m finally on track with my Netgalley reads (currently 85% ratio!!! *does happy dance*), and I hope to be on track with my other pending ARCs by the end of the month. Fingers crossed!

March 2017 TBR

march2017tbr

I can’t believe it’s actually MARCH 2017 already! The third month of this year already, and also my birthday month… And hopefully less extreme weather. Last month’s TBR was without doubt a disaster and I only read three of the titles I wanted to read. It’s easy to explain though, because I basically have a mountain of pending ARCs waiting for me right now so I just don’t have time to read any of the other titles right now. These titles below are still high on my priority list though! Fingers crossed April or May will be less busy.
