April 2020 TBR

March, March, what a difficult month you have been… A month of contrasts; I don’t think I’ve had a birthday month this depressing before to be honest. Bookish wise, I managed to read a lot of the books on my March TBR, which is at least something positive. The titles I wasn’t able to get to I’m hoping to read either during April or May.

April is Magical Readathon: O.W.L.s month, and the mayority of the books on my April TBR are for this readathon (the titles marked with OWL)… It’s a mix of pending ARCs, two blog tour reads and a lot of books that fitted the prompts and I have been wanting to read for a while.

10 series I want to read/catch up with in 2020

Let’s talk about series! I confess it’s not the first time I put together one of these posts, and I confess they haven’t always been all that successful… But I hope that putting together this little post will help me focus on at least a couple of the series I want to read/catch up with during 2020. Somehow, I have an enormous pile of series I either want to start or need to continue; with so many options it can get overwhelming and I usually just end up reading stand-alones instead. BUT. I’ve decided to compile a list of 10 series I really want to read before the end of 2020, hoping that singling them out will make me actually read them for a change haha. It’s a mix of thriller and fantasy, and I really do hope to get to at least half of these by the end of the year.

So which series do I want to make my priority? Sorted in alphabetical order by the last name of the author:


#1. Katherine Arden – Winternight Trilogy

I’ve been meaning to read this trilogy for ages now! I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about it and I’ll be looking forward to binge-read it during the upcoming winter months.

#2. Chelsea Cain – Archie Sheridan & Gretchen Lowell

I really enjoyed the first two books of this series and I’m still not sure why I haven’t read the other four yet… Hopefully in 2020.

#3. Steve Cavanagh – Eddie Flynn

I loved Thirteen when I read it last year, and I’ve been meaning to catch up with the rest of the series ever since… With book number five, Fifty-Fifty, coming out later this year, I really need to do so soon.

#4 Will Dean – Tuva Moodyson Mystery

I’ve heard fantastic things about this series and with book three just out I thought it was about time I finally catch up.

#5. Helen Sarah Fields – D.I. Callanach


I’ve had this series on my radar for a long time now, and with each book coming out it is becoming harder and harder to catch up… I’m determined to do so before the end of 2020 though.

#6. Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) – Cormoran Strike

I read the first book six! years ago, but somehow I never actually picked up the sequels… With book five coming out later this year, I really should finally catch up.

#7. Stephanie Garber – Caraval

I’ve had this series on my radar for a long time now and I hope to finally read it during 2020!

#8. Cara Hunter – DI Adam Fawley

I’ve been meaning to read this series for a while now as I’ve heard nothing but good things about it… With book four recently having come out, it’s about time I catch up before I fall even more behind.

#9. Stephen King – Bill Hodges Trilogy

It’s been six! years since I read the first book Mr. Mercedes and to be honest I wasn’t too impressed back then… But I still want to read the other two books so I can cross one more series off my unfinished series list at least.

#10. Ransom Riggs – Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children

I really enjoyed the first book when I read it five! years ago, so I’m still not sure why I haven’t continued this series yet. I’m getting further and further behind so I really need to step up my game and catch up in 2020!


Have you read any of the series I want to read/catch up with in 2020? Any suggestion which series I should read first? And do you have any series you want to catch up with no matter what during 2020?

March 2020 TBR

Damn, February seems to have passed in a blink! With the new lifestyle changes and an impromptu camping trip, I haven’t been able to read as much as usual, but I’m definitely happy I was still able to get to most of the books on my February TBR. My Eddie Flynn series binge-read will probably have to wait until April as I don’t think I’ll have time for it in March, but I’m reading J.D. Barker‘s newest without fail as it’s due this month. The same goes for Strangers, which I’m starting right now!

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

Like I mentioned in January, I’m still taking it easy with all things blogging this year and I’ll be mostly focusing on my own books again… Although I do have a number of ARCs and two blog tours I will need to get to in March. Other than that, I have quite a few titles lined up that I have been wanting to read for a while now, and I’m also planning on starting my Spanish reread of the final Harry Potter book in March! With this month being my birthday month and a possible trip happening in the second half of March, I don’t think I can actually read all of these, but it is always nice to have a list of options ready right? 😉

February 2020 TBR

How is it February already? Already the second month of a new decade, and time seems to keep flying… My January TBR went pretty well and I managed to read most of the titles on it. I decided to save The Defence for February as I will be binge-reading a couple of series, and the other two I still hope to get to soon (although I’m not sure if I will be able to do so in February).

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

Like I mentioned a few days ago, I’m taking it easy with all things blogging this year and I’ll be mostly reading my own books again with the exception of a select few ARCs of most-anticipated titles… February will be mostly about binge-reading a couple of series in preparation for two Orenda blog tours in March as well as a most-anticipated sequel coming out later this year. I’m also planning to read a few most-anticipated ARCs I just can’t resist any longer, a classic I still can’t believe I haven’t read (or at least I don’t remember doing so when I was little) and another title I’ve been wanting to read for a while.

January 2020 TBR

I still can’t believe we have now officially started a whole new decade! I mean, where did those last ten years go?! A new decade, a new year and a new month, which means it’s time for another monthly TBR… My December 2019 TBR went better than expected, mostly because I’ve been ticking off those ARC boxes like crazy so I can slow down a bit in January and February. I’m planning on reading those remaining titles some time soon as well!

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

I managed to read a lot of ARCs during December, but I still have to read a few more to fully catch up… I’m happy I’ll be having more time to read a few of my own titles as well in January though; the five non-ARCs on my January TBR are all titles I’ve been wanting to read for a while now.

20 Priority Titles in 2020

Let’s forget about the fact that I still have to read five title on my 2019 list, and take a look at 2020… But first of all: Happy Holidays to all of you who celebrate!! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful time so far with the preparations. ❤ ❤ I have to be honest here and say it’s not my favorite season in the world and I still can’t get used to the whole Christmas in the middle of the summer thing even after nine years, but at least the food sort of makes up for it. 😉

With the year almost being over it’s not just time to think about all the books I did read, but also about all those books I wasn’t able to get to in 2019. I’ve decided to put together a list of 20 titles I will be giving a priority in the first months of 2020. I’m sure I will end up mixing it up with other titles as well and there are a ton more I also want to read, but I guess I’ll have to start somewhere right?

So what has been high on my radar, but I wasn’t able to read in 2019? Find out below…

December 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s December already! I mean, how is it possible that we are already two days into the last month of 2019?! Anyway, November turned out to be a pretty hopeless month when it comes to following my monthly TBR. xD Partly because I was distracted by the Goodreads Choice Awards nominations and ended up reading a bunch of different titles instead. Whoops? I still want to read all the titles below ASAP, but it probably won’t be until 2020 before I can get to most of them.

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

I’m hoping to take things slow in December as well even though I really have to play catch up with my enormous pile of pending ARCs… A lot of the titles below are actually ARCs, with a Christmas read, a TBR jar pick and two titles I’ve been dying to read thrown in to mix things up a little.
