WWW Wednesday: How is it Wednesday again already?!?

Hello everyone,

Its time for another round of WWW Wednesday! I’ve only read three books this past week, but one was a classic. Here are the books that I finished reading!

What did I finish reading?

Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh is a five star read. Romeo and Juliet was better than I remembered while sadly Psalm for the Wild Built wasn’t what I hoped it would be and I dnf’d it.

What am I currently reading?

These three are buddy reads! I’m at 120 pages of Jade City, I just started the Diviners and I have yet to start Bone Witch though that will change soon!

These are the books I’m currently working on. All of these apart from Glory Season and Battlemage are relatively short. I’m trying to really read a lot this week and get up to 50 books but not just reading short fiction. My plan is to read a bunch of short things with a couple big things in between and it seems to be working in getting rid of my slumps at last!

What am I reading next?

A lot of backlog titles I’m trying to get to. I really hope to read The Last Cuentista and The Stars Are Legion most of all.

What are all of you reading? Anything good? Let me know in the comments. I’m hoping to seriously thin down my tbr this year. I’m very tired of the backlog just glaring at me. Time to actually get some reading done this year!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: I read 6 books since the last time I did this.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! I skipped last week’s because I hadn’t read but a single book and I just wasn’t in the mood for posting anything. This one isn’t much better in that I read five books + a short story. I have a couple new favorites and a lot of dnf’s. Let’s just get to it shall we?

What did I finish reading?

I’m struggling against a reading slump. Again. I’ve three books before I hit 250 books on my Goodreads goal. I’m hoping to get some reading in the next two days before the new year. I should manage it. Here’s what I’ve recently finished reading:


What am I currently reading?

What am I going to read next?

I’m in such a fantasy mood right now! Finally!!! I’m doubtful that I can read any of these before the end of the year but I’m still including these as my “potentials”. I know Knights Shadow is not the first but I want to read the whole series; same for the others! I’m hoping that next year I will be back into reading with fewer slumps! Doubtful but hopeful! What did you read since last Wednesday? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: I managed to read 2 Books and four short stories

Hello everyone,

How is it already another Wednesday? I feel like this week slipped by faster than usual but I somehow managed to get some reading done. I read four amazing Tor short stories and two books. I’m currently reading two other books too. Let’s see what all I’ve read! (Side note: I can’t get pictures of the short stories that I read. Apologies.)

What am I currently reading?

I just started two books and I hope to finish at least one by tomorrow! The last books I started in the previous WWW are ongoing as well but these are what I’m actually reading for now. Here’s what I’m reading:

What did I finish reading?

Honestly not a lot, lol. One was a two star read and White Smoke was four stars.

What will I read next?

I have quite a hefty list of books I want to read this week and I’m hoping to be able to get through them this time. I’m tired of making plans and not following through. Here’s my stack of next week’s tbr:

I’m seriously setting time up for getting through all these books. I have several plans and upcoming reviews that I’d like to do as well. I’m also hoping to start next year with a series of reviewing Tor short fiction. Until then though, I’m going to hopefully get a move on and actually read some of these books! How’s your reading progressing? Read anything good? Let me know in the comments!

Top Books I Forgot To Read: The 2021 Edition

Hello Everyone,

I’m always forgetting about new releases, super hyped books, and just not completing my TBR’s that I’ve made. This past year I’ve dnf’d more books, I have changed my mind on several, I’ve put aside a book never to pick it up again because I forgot about it… the list of reasons is endless. And my stress has made it harder to focus on reading this year thanks to a multitude of reasons I’m sure we can all relate. But I decided a fun thing to do for the last month of the year was combine the top “forgotten” books and try to get to them before the years end. It’s unlikely that I will but regardless…lists are fun and an excellent means of procrastination in actually reading.

Okay, to be fair I waited on reading Jade City until the trilogy was complete but the rest I just completely forgot about. Red Knight by Miles Cameron is also a thick book as is most of these that I chose. I think that the one I’m most intrigued by is Last Song Before Night. Such a lovely cover but I can say the same thing about most all these books. And a few of these do seem winter themed so perfect timing. Which one should I make a priority I wonder? 🤔

I hope to get to these before the end of the year but my tbr is already quite large so I’m not holding my breath. I wish everyone else happy reading and good luck with their own tbr goals.

Until next time,

2021 December TBR: The Hardest TBR to Make of the Year

Hello Everyone,

I have all these (above) as my hopeful tbr for December but there’s loads of others to that I hope to get to. Every month I have a tbr I don’t stick too but I hope to get to anyway. This month is more ambitious than usual as it’s the last month of the year so I have those 35 books plus these additional ones if possible:

Not to mention these library books that I have checked out:

I’m very hopeful that this month won’t be slumpy like the last year has been. I’m hoping that next year reading will be easier as will reviewing. I wish everyone well with their last month tbr of the year!

Happy reading,

Books I Forgot I Had: Stashed On My Kindle, Library App

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would do something new and list a few books that I forgot that I had in my kindle, let alone in my library overdrive app. There’s a hefty list of books on my tbr, but this list will be small. Maybe about ten, fifteen books that I will share that I forgot I had. Shall we?

I keep forgetting about this book, though to be fair I tried reading it twice and both times put it aside. I may try again soon but right now I’m just not in a sci-fi mood.

Again, not in a sci-fi mood but I really love Lavie Tidhar’s writing. I hope to be reading this and her other books next year!

This book has such a beautiful cover and is much loved by the community I know, but I’m just not ready for a box of tissues yet.

I know, I know, I know. Y’all are probably screaming at me that I still haven’t read this. I own a copy I just haven’t picked it up yet as I’ve been burned by YA a fair bit lately and am not in the mood for it.

I have put this on my tbr so many times this year but just haven’t picked it up and I keep forgetting to read it. 😒

I’ve had this for ages in my kindle but I just keep forgetting that I have it! One day I swear I’ll read this!

I’m also not in the mood for historical fiction as this book is quite long too. I own a physical copy now though so maybe soon I can read it.

I have a confession to make. I’ve never read the Night Circus. *Ducks for cover and hides*

I’ve heard so much praise for this author and still I haven’t read her books. 😔

~•~•~•~•~

I’ve decided to leave it here because I could just go on and on in how many books I haven’t read or forgotten about. Should I make any of these a priority? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

TBR BOOKS: 100+ Books I STILL Haven’t Read

Hello Everyone,

I’m sure we’re all guilty of having books on our shelves languishing on our shelves, sitting and waiting with accusing eyes. I’ve easily got several dozen that I am guilty of not reading yet. Here’s a bit of a list of all that I’m hoping to get to soon! So settle in, bring up Goodreads, and be prepared to add books to your TBR!

TBR BOOKS:

Many of these I’m embarrassed that I still haven’t read them! I’m always looking at other books or arcs that are priorities and many of these I just don’t have and need my library to access them. Which ones should I focus on? Also? Final count for all of this is 125 books. Ouch. There’s more but these are top of my tbr pile for now. I’m hoping to get to them soon.

Until next time,

WWW WEDNESDAY: A Return to Memes?

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to WWW Wednesdays! hosted bySam @ Taking on a World of Words.

What have I read?

A lot! I’ve been reading a fair few lately, I just finished a few historical romances and military romances, but also I have read a single nonfiction book. But here are the books I have read for October already!

Overall for October only one 5 ⭐ read so far. I’m hopeful that that will soon change. I haven’t picked up a book yet, but I’m eyeing several in my kindle even as I’m writing this!

What Am I Currently Reading?

I’m apparently in a weird reading mood where I want to read dark fantasy that’s got lots of graphic violence and historical romance that’s anything but, lol.

Mostly dark fantasy, a couple of novellas flung in for good measure. I’m probably going to do the historical romances in a separate post maybe. I don’t know yet.

What Will I Read Next?

Honestly, I have no idea my reading mood is wild now that I’m not back in a slump. I’ve already (checks Goodreads) read 9 books! I did dnf three, however and only one 5 star read. I’m hoping that will soon change. I’m positive Jay Kristoff will at least be 5 stars, so there’s that at least lol. What all have you been reading? Anything exciting? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

October TBR: My Favorite Month Is Here!!! 🦇📚🦇

Hello Everyone,

My top three exciting reads!!!

There’s so many books that I want to read right now but am patiently waiting for my library to get them on hold. Also a book fair at my library tomorrow, finally! I’m dying to go. Last time I didn’t do a lot of pictures this time I am attempting to. Let me know if it’s too much?

These are just a handful of the books that I eagerly want to read. I’m hopeful most for Empire of the Vampire & From Blood and Ashes & Gideon the Ninth. I’m excited for all of them, of course, but we’ll see how the month shapes up! Let me know what your reading or have read. Happy October!!! 🦇📚🦇

Until next time,

September TBR: I Haven’t Done One Of These In Ages!

Hello all,

Lots of things happening in September. September first is my birthday!!! 🎂🎉🎂 Happy birthday to me!!! (I’ll be 32 for those curious.)

Series September is also going on, meaning you try to knock out as many series as possible.

Magical Readathon is happening but I doubt I’ll participate in that one.

Becca’s Bookopolathon which I think I misspelled lol, is also happening. I’m not sure I will participate in this yet or not?

Big Books September is something I’m doing for myself in reading as many big books as I can seeing as we’re at the home stretch of the end of the year.

Here’s my potential tbr subject to change:

All the books I want to read!

Now I have read Eragon books 1 + 2 but I don’t think I’ve read book 3 and I know I haven’t read the last one.

I have read the Poppy War but not the remaining two.

I have read ALL of Pawn of Prophecy first original set up until the second series midway through.

And I’ve read book one of Sabriel but not the rest.

See a theme going here? Lol. I’m hoping to grab these from my local library and finish these all off hopefully. The rest I haven’t listed are ones that I’ve not read. These are some extras that I’m contemplating for series + big books:

Extra books I’ve been meaning to read!

I probably won’t get to all of these lol. And I’m still struggling in writing reviews, but I really am behind and hopeful that September can be my catch up month. Y’all can join me in #BigBookSeptember. I’d love for you to spread the word! Just tag me on Twitter as @Lovesbookandtea! What’s your tbr looking like? Read any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
