October 2017 TBR

Hey Bookworms! For those of you who have been following my reading journey on my Bookstagram or Twitter, you’ll know that I have a moderately successful reading month in September – I managed to read about half of my TBR list (plus a couple books that weren’t initially on it), and with everything going on, I am pretty proud of that! I’ve still got quite a stack of books to work through, but I’ll get there one day … right?

So, what will I be reading this month?

I am going to try and be realistic with myself this month – with my educational journey as a Teacher Candidate now well underway, I now know my time to read will be limited, so I am under no illusions of believing I will actually be able to finish every book on the below list – once again, even half would be an accomplishment!

  1. The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May (June 13, 2017)
  2. The Changeling’s Journey by Christine Spoors (July 31, 2017)
  3. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (August 29, 2017)
  4. Godsgrave: Book Two Of The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff (September 5, 2017)
  5. Fireblood by Elly Blake (September 12, 2017)
  6. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo (September 26, 2017)
  7. An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson (September 26, 2017)
  8. The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli (October 3, 2017)
  9. Shadowblack by Sebastien de Castell (October 5, 2017)
  10. Into the Bright Unknown by Rae Carson (October 10, 2017)

Back to School Book List

Hey Bookworms! For those of you who have been following my reading journey on my Bookstagram, you’ll know that I have a relatively successful reading month in August – in fact, I nearly completely my entire TBR List! Of course, that was before I made a trip to The Book Outlet for some older, and found myself drowning in late August/early September releases that I just couldn’t pass up.

So, what will I be reading this month?

I am going to try and be realistic with myself this month – with a new apartment to unpack, and a brand new educational journey, I am not sure how much time I’ll have to read, so I am under no illusions of believing I will actually be able to finish every book on the below list – even half would be an accomplishment!

In addition, this month, since I will be tackling some older releases I picked up at The Book Outlet (2014 and earlier), I’ve split my reading list into two groups – The Old and The New!

The Old:

  1. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier (May 22, 2012)
  2. Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier (May 28, 2013)
  3. Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier (October 7, 2014)
  4. Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes (July 15, 2014)

The New:

  1. Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke (May 22, 2016)
  2. Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller (August 29th, 2017)
  3. Godsgrave: Book Two Of The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff (September 5, 2017)
  4. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas (September 6th, 2017)
  5. Fireblood by Elly Blake (September 12, 2017)
  6. One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake (September 19, 2017)
  7. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo (September 26th, 2017)

 

August 2017 Reading List

So here it is – another month of trying to tackle (and overcome) my forever growing To Be Read pile. For every book I finish, it seems like a new one just … appears (I swear, I’ve barely bought any new books this summer!).

So, what will I be reading this month?

Well, after a crazily busy July, I have a lot of catching up to do; I am setting some more reasonable reading goals for myself, and hoping that the few weeks that I do have off in August can be used for some quality reading time! That being said, much of this list may look similar to my recent TBR’s, but there’s some new books on here as well!

  1. Obsidian and Stars by Julie Eshbaugh (June 13, 2017)
  2. Thief’s Cunning by Sarah Ahiers (June 13, 2017)
  3. Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell (May 4th, 2017)
  4. Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody (July 25th, 2017)
  5. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes (December 11th, 2012)
  6. Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller (August 29th, 2017)
  7. Wicked Liked A Wildfire by Lana Popovic (August 15, 2017)

July 2017 To Be Read List

Let me start this off by first saying – Happy 150th Birthday Canada! Today, many Canadian bookworms, such as myself, are out and about celebrating the “birth” of our home nation. So what are we celebrating up here in the Great White North, you ask? The year 2017 marks 150 years since Confederation – what many consider to be the official creation of the Dominion of Canada. And while we celebrate this milestone, it is also important to remember that for many Indigenous people (and non-Indigenous people, too), Canada exists on stolen land. While multiple First Nations have treaty agreements with Canada, others do not; there are unceded territories, and broken treaties too. It’s your birthday, Canada, so make a wish. And make it count!

So, what will I be reading this month?

Well, after a crazily busy June, I have a lot of catching up to do; I’m hoping that a more consistent work schedule will help me keep more up to date with my TBR and my blog posting schedule, but only time will tell! I am especially behind when it comes to reading books I received for my birthday! That being said, much of this list may look similar to my June TBR, but there’s some new books on here as well!

  1. Now I Rise by Kiersten White (June 27, 2017)
  2. Obsidian and Stars by Julie Eshbaugh (June 13, 2017)
  3. Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts (May 30, 2017)
  4. Thief’s Cunning by Sarah Ahiers (June 13, 2017)
  5. Beren and Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien, illustrated by Alan Lee and edited by Christopher Tolkien (June 1, 2017)
  6. Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau (June 6th, 2017)
  7. Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell (May 4th, 2017)

March To Be Read List

March came in roaring like a lion last night (quite literally – the booming thunder and flashing lightning kept me up quite late!). But we all know what the beginning of a new month means- a new TBR list!

I managed to chip away at a significant amount of my TBR List, but it’s still quite large. That being said, my goal this month is to get my TBR pile down to only 5 books.

  2. Roseblood by A.G. Howard
  3. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
  4. Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr
  5. Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

  7. Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers
  8. Trial by Fire by Rachel Angelini
  9. The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
  10. Island of Exiles (ARC) by Erica Cameron

In addition, I am very excited to read some new, upcoming releases (although, in order to reach my goal of getting my TBR list down to 5 books (and maybe save a bit of money too), I’ve really limited the new releases I’ll be reading this month!

  1. The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon (March 7th)
  2. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton (March 14th)
  3. Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves (March 28th)*

  5. Hunted by Meagan Spooner (March 14th)
  6. A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi (March 28th)*

*Due to the late release dates of these books, I probably won’t get to reading them until April, but one can always hope, right?

The Epic Reads Team has also put together a pretty comprehensive list of books, from multiple genres, that are set to release this month – you can check it out here!
