March 2020 TBR!!

Hey everyone!! Today I am here to tell you about all of the books that I plan on reading in the month of March!!

So I have another very ambitious TBR for March. I have 2 books well over 500 pages that I have to make my main priority this month. One for a liveshow that (by the time you guys are reading this post will have already happened) on YouTube and the other also for a read-a-long and is my book club’s book of the month for March.

Thankfully, March will not be a busy month away from my reading life. I hope to get the most of my reading done in the first couple of weeks as well as during my spring break in the middle of the month.

With all that said, here are the books I plan on reading!

  • Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas (currently reading)
  • House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas (my book club book of the month)
  • The Animals of Lockwood Manor by Jane Healy (ARC sent to me for review by the publisher)
  • Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing by Maryla Szymiczkowa (ARC sent to me for review by the publisher)

So there it is. My ambitious TBR for March. Oh boy.

I am almost caught up with my backlist reviews that I have yet to post here on the blog. Once all of those are up, I will have full reviews for all of these books posted as well. I will also have a full video review for both Kingdom of Ash and House of Earth and Blood on my YouTube channel soon after (you can find my channel here!)

What do you plan on reading in March? Let me know in the comments!!

Happy Reading!

February 2020 Wrap Up!

Hey guys!! Today I am here to talk about the books I read in February!!

So, once again, February didn’t go as planned as far as the reading side of my life. School and work kind of took over my life for most of the month and then I went on vacation during the February break here in Massachusetts. So with those things going on throughout the month, I didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to reading.

With all that said, here are my monthly stats and the 2 books I read!

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia

42478640

Synopsis:

A dying billionaire sends one woman and a cast of dreamers and rivals on a citywide treasure hunt in this irresistible novel by the author of Bellweather Rhapsody.

Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching old Twin Peaks and X-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston’s most eccentric billionaire, dies—leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe—Tuesday’s adventure finally begins.

Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize—a share of Pryce’s immense wealth—they must move quickly. Pryce’s clues can’t be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some more vivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams.

A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, from The Westing Game to Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table, Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary. ”

Foul is Fair_Cover

Hannah Capin’s Foul is Fair is a bloody, thrilling revenge fantasy for the girls who have had enough. Golden boys beware: something wicked this way comes.

Jade and her friends Jenny, Mads, and Summer rule their glittering LA circle. Untouchable, they have the kind of power other girls only dream of. Every party is theirs and the world is at their feet.

Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

41150487._SY475_

Synopsis:

“What happens when America’s First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn’t always diplomatic.”

February 2020 TBR!

Hey guys!! Today I am here to tell you about all of the books that I plan on reading in the month of February!!

So February. Oh February.

I have a lot planned for this month. It is the heart of my spring semester of college currently and balancing that with working 25-30 hours a week and reading on top of that is going to be challenging. I am also going to be on vacation during the middle of the month so we will see how that impacts my reading.

With that said, I have very ambitious reading plans with a lot of the books that I plan on reading being at least 500 pages or more. I also plan on doing contemporary-a-thon (2/10-2/16) so I will have a separate TBR for that.

So here are the books that I plan on reading this month!

  • Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Only Child by Mi-Ae Seo (ARC sent to me for review by the publisher) (currently reading)
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (currently reading)
  • The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern (my book club book of the month for February)

So those are the books that I plan on reading this month. Pretty ambitious but hopefully I can get through most of these this month!

As always, I will have full reviews for all of these books as soon as 1. I catch up on my backlist reviews and 2. as soon as I finish them! I will also have a full video review for Kingdom of Ash on my YouTube channel soon after I finish it as well!

What do you plan on reading this month? Let me know in the comments!!

So those are the books I started off the new year reading. Not to shabby at all.

As I have mentioned in many wrap ups previously, I am still playing catch up on my reviews for previous months so as soon as those are done, I will have full reviews for all of these books (except for Tower of Dawn) up here on the blog. My link to my review of Tower of Dawn is above and you can also find a full video review of it here on my YouTube channel!

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

36342017

Synopsis:

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates–brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find–aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge–but who will be left alive at the end?

In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn’t automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question.”

December 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey everyone!! Happy New Year!!

So I am here today to tell you about all of the books that I read in the month of December! It was kind of a fail of a reading month to be honest.

I wanted to read a lot considering that I was now done with school for the semester and wasn’t crazy with work. But that all changed about halfway through the month. I also said that I was going to be posting a blog post everyday that month and while it started off strong, I ended up running out of time before I knew it.

With that said, I did manage to finish 2 books!

So with that said, here are my monthly stats and the books I read!
