October’s TBR!

A Little Life is definitely going to take me some time to finish, and I am also trying to get through an ebook so September’s TBR is slowing me down

HOWEVER, after careful consideration of your suggestions I have picked some spooky halloween reads for this month!

The Shining by Stephen King – I have been dying to read this book, but I wanted to save it for October!

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – I am a little embarrassed to say I have never read this yet, but it fits right into my Halloween theme!

The Shack by William Paul Young – I have chosen this read for now (mostly because I need to finish it so my mom can have it), but it doesn’t exactly fit with my theme so I may change my mind when I get around to it.

Because I still have some September reads to clue up I have chosen only three books besides for my TBR – hopefully I get to read more.


Have you read any of these?

Pick my TBR!

PICK THREE!!

Hard to believe it is almost October, but here we are. I decided for the month of October I wanted to have a TBR list that consisted of scary, thrilling, and/or strange reads, however the problem is I have so many options.

I am currently reading A Little Life, but I was recently contacted to review a novel for someone (I’m moving up in the book world!!!) so it is slowing me down a bit and I anticipate I will have to carry over reading A Little Life at least in the first week of October.

To keep my TBR realistic with my busy workload in school, I am hoping you guys can recommend what three books I should make time for during October.

 

 

September TBR

August was dedicated to reading IT by Stephen King even though I managed to get a couple more quick reads in before the month was over. For September, I am going to push my limits and try to conquer a few “shorter” reads and to at least get started with A Little Life. A few of these on my September TBR are a part of my 2017 must-reads I posted about earlier: you can read about that here

On this months TBR list is: Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
This is a book I have been wanting to read since highschool, I had the option to read this or The Hobbit for an English course and I chose The Hobbit. About 4 years later I am finally getting around to this read.

The Giver – Lois Lowry
I have seen this read all over my social media feeds and one of my friends is reading it now. I hope it is worth all the hype!

Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng
I snagged this book at a book fair for 2 dollars! I had no idea what this book was about or if it would be worth the read, but after buying it I started to see it pop up on my social media feeds which made me excited to read it!

Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom
– 
I have been wanting to read this book forever, but I wanted to wait until I had enough free time to really take my time and enjoy it. The concept is similar to the book The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch which I really enjoyed. Being 21 and just finishing university I really appreciate hearing about life experiences and advice from others. I will probably start this month with this read!

A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
This book has been everywhere! I have only seen praise and excitement for this read. It is a bit longer of a book so I am not expecting to have it finished by the end of the month, but I am hoping to be well into it by then.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman (not pictured ebook)*
I have already started this one, but I only really use my ereader when I am doing cardio at the gym so ebooks take me a little longer to finish. I am already really enjoying this read I love the suspense and creative characters so far.

Ten Reads to Tackle

I have just under 20 books to read in order to meet my 2017 reading goal of 50 books. It is almost September so I decided that hey maybe I should start considering a few books that I want to tackle.

Making a TBR list when I have over a 100 unread books on the bookshelf (overload) is a difficult task. Therefore I went through my books and picked out a few that I was excited to read. I didn’t want to make a static TBR for the next 4 months just in case I get an urge to read another book or I get my hands on another one I am excited for so I decided to choose 10 must-reads for my 2017 reading goal:

The Giver – Lois Lowry

Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury

The Shining – Stephen King

Life of Pi – Yann Martel

Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom

The Time Traveller’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger

The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown

A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara

The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas

Vengeance Road – Erin Bowman


Do you have any must-reads before the year is over? Let me know!

  2. The Picture of Dorian Gray
  3. Whisky Words & a Shovel I
  4. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

June’s To Be Read List

I have a few books I would like to get through during June (I think I can, I think I can)

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

On this list is …

Carrie by Stephen King – This will be my first Stephen King and horror read, I am so excited. 

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin – I have already started this book, I am going to aim to finish it this month so I can start back on Tools of Titans! Need all the self help I can get. 

Hunting Humans by Elliot Leyton – This book is for school, however it is definitely going to be an interesting read since it revolves around serial killers. 

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman – I have been waiting to read this book F O R E V E R. 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – This book is all over my social media feeds, safe to say that I am intrigued. 

*Not pictured: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- I am currently reading this on my kobo, I use this most at the gym. It is about time I read this classic. 

Any suggestions for July? 

Book Order From May

finally made it out home to receive my book order in the mail, thanks Indigo bookstores!!

I have always wanted to read Stephen King, I actually have had Bag of Bones home for a while, however I was always recommended to read The Shining and Carrie first. A Monster Calls has been alllll over my social media feeds, it has a lot of hype and I hope it lives up to my expectations.

I have never read horror, and as of 2017 I haven’t read much fantasy. When ordering these books – because there was a sale – I figured it was the perfect opportunity to add these genres to my TBR.

They all also tie in with my ongoing theme of reading books that are movies – more about that later ..


Have you read any of these? What did you think?
