New Arcs: Thanks Parliament House!

I was recently gifted with some arcs from a wonderful publishing company known as Parliament House. They were kind enough to send in arcs that I’d specifically requested, and I look forward to reading and reviewing as soon as possible! Of course, I have a large number of arcs not just from Parliament House, but also from Kensington House, Netgalley, and many other places as well. The rest of this month will be a mad dash to finish as many arcs as possible. But let’s see what Parliament House sent me, shall we?

 

 

All these look wonderful, but I think my most anticipated read out of the choices above is probably “Between the Sea and Stars”, as the cover is just lovely, and the storyline sounds so intriguing.

Again, my thanks to the publishing house, and I look forward to reading all these. Expect reviews soon!

Until next time,

December TBR: Let’s Play A Game

There are many different categories of this ‘game’, from my Amazon Wishlist to books on my nightstand. Each category has ten books listed. Each book is one that has likely been sitting on my TBR for months/years or is brand new and everyone has hyped about it. In this month of December, let’s see just how many of these books I can finish before the end of 2018 shall we?

Top Ten Amazon Books On My LONG List: (Least Likely to Get To)

(Note: I have no idea how many books I have on my Amazon Wishlist.)

 

Top Ten Books in my Long Goodreads TBR List: (hopeful to request at library)

(Note: I have 3400 books in my Goodreads TBR.)

 

Top Ten Books in my Library Ebook System Waiting For Me To Read: 

(Note: I have 518 books in my Ebook Library Wishlist.)

 

 

Top Ten Kindle E-books I Own On My TBR: 

(Note: I have no idea how many kindle e-books I own. Additional Note: The Tethered Mage will be a re-read so that I might remember plot for Book Two if I succeed in getting hold of it.)

 

Top Ten ARCS on my TBR Wistlist:

(Note: I have five books on Edelweiss, and 16 Arcs in my Netgalley Account, plus one physical arc that I received in the mail making for a total of 22 ARCs.)

 

 

Top Ten New Books I Own On My Wishlist:

(Note: I have no idea how many new books I have, as I have not done a physical count in a while.)

 

 

Top Ten Books on my Nightstand: 

{Note: I have about thirty books on my nightstand, and throughout my room that are in my immediate reach.}

 

{Additional Note: Game of Thrones will be a re-read, as I have never finished reading the series, and only recall certain bits of the television show.}

And that’s it! Those are all the books that I *want* to get to, but again I highly doubt I will read every single one of these. Especially those from the Amazon wish list, because several of those are still a bit out of budget. Which ones should I read first? Which looks most appealing? Which have you read already? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Top #5: ARCs On My TBR Shelf

Since everyone is doing their Top # Whatever Tuesday, I figured that I would jump on the bandwagon with a bit something different. My Netgalley has about 10/15 books to read, and my Edelweiss has a few as well, but I’m just picking from my Netgalley account.

 

These are four of the ones that I’m most excited four, though I am disappointed that the Ruin of Kings is a sampler only. I hope to get the whole book at some point, and not just the first few chapters!

Drumroll for the #1 Anticipated ARC on my Netgalley please!:

How to Fracture a Fairy Tale

I was so excited to receive this one! I might have squealed when I got accepted as a reviewer for one of my top most favorite authors, and the introduction is by another favorite author! I’m hoping to start this one soon!

So what are your top five ARCs? Let me know in the comments, because I’m really intrigued to see what other people manage to pick up.

Until next time,

My Ambitious October TBR

This month is yet again filled with ARCs and New Releases, some of these new Releases that I still haven’t gotten around to reading yet. I just finished reading two massive books, however, so maybe this month will go even better! Here are the books that I really hope to get to this month, the ARCs being more important than the New Releases, as per usual.

 

Almost fifty books. I also have a bunch of requests I’m hoping to get that are on Netgalley and Edelweiss, and I just discovered a cool place called Booksprout that has arcs as well, and there’s a bunch of arcs in my email that I still haven’t gotten to either, and this will clearly be a month of heavy reading, in between writing book two of a trilogy/series that I’m currently working on as well!

So that’s my ambitious TBR pile for October, what books on here are you guys hoping to read, or are you reading other books that I haven’t yet heard of? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

September TBR: New Releases + ARCS!

This month is all about reading new books. My libraries (I have two, because I alternate between two different places) have new releases that I’ve been dying to read, and a few I’ve put off reading until the sequels are out, so now I have no excuse, and am eagerly going to be reading these gorgeous beauties!

My Ambitious TBR Pile:

 

Now, will I be able to read all of these? I really rather doubt it. I might manage, if I keep up the pace, and don’t loose focus. These are also just a handful of books that I really want to read, some of them at least over 500+pages! I sincerely hope that I can get through these, and not lose interest like I’ve been doing here lately (rather a lot, actually).

So those are most of the books that I’m definitely wanting to knock out of my TBR pile for the month of September. A few of them are quite fitting for this month with horror or fall related themes. See if you can guess which ones!

Until next time,

Books I’m “Planning” On Reading

So I’ve been gone awhile, and I’m attempting to play catch up with reading because I’ve only read a small handful of books this past month. Pitiful compared to the start of the year, really, but to be fair I’ve been busy working on writing my book than I have reading, and I’m almost done writing which means that next month will be filled with books, A Wrinkle in Time movie, and more books! I’ve worked out what books I really want to get to this upcoming month, and I have all of them I just need to start reading them!

Books I’m Planning On Reading:FirstRow

RowTwo

LastRow

Verylastrow

I have all of these books, either on my laptop, kindle, or in physical form. Four of these are ARCs to read (Dragon’s Realm, Ride On, The Price Guide, Song of Blood) so they go first! Then after those, I can work through my eight Library books that I have, and then go through there. Who thinks that I’m going to be able to read all of these in a month! Yeah, I don’t think so either, but a girl can dream…

Upcoming ARCs

I’ve gotten a fair few ebook ARCs in my gmail lately. Some I’ve requested, a few of them are from authors who asked me to review their books on Amazon-and I’ve been getting a lot more of those kind of requests. Most of the time the books are good. But there are a rare few that I just didn’t care for at all. These are the books that I’m going to hopefully read soon and post reviews as promised. Two of which I needed to write reviews for before the end of December, but at the rate that I’m going, that’s going to be an epic fail. Sigh. Anyway, here’s the list:

1: Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather

2: Witchy Eye by D. J. Butler

3: Blood Rose by Danielle Rose

4: A Summer of Witches by M. Ganendran

5: Dragon Bone by Aldrea Johnson

So yeah, those are going to be the next books that I concentrate on. Some of the covers don’t look very appealing, and a couple of them look nice. It varies. The stories all sound interesting, though, now its just a matter of choosing which one to start with. I’m at least hoping to finish all of these before the end of the year and post reviews at that time as well. Other goals I have are:

*review every book on my shelves at home (that’ll take a while)

*make my blog a bit more organized in finding the books you want to read the review of

*somehow gain more traffic on my blog, to draw in more publishers/authors

 

And that’s what I’ve been up to lately. In between all of that, I’m still working on finishing my first book. It’s a YA epic fantasy novel, and one that I think is really good. I’ve got an editor looking it over now. I’m hoping to have it up sometime next year. Anyways. That’s all for now.

Happy holidays everyone,

Now-

Old Review, No Author (2016 Me Was An Idiot): Freedom’s Child Book Review

I thoroughly enjoyed Freedom’s Child. It was intense and beautifully written, filled with believable characters and a fascinating plot. I found that I enjoyed this a lot more than I had thought that I would, actually, and I will definitely check out more by this author!

Additional Notes: Um…who’s the author? What year was it published? Could you leave me no clues at all 2015 me?! This is what a fresh new blogger looks like y’all lol. Take note not to do this! And not even a book cover! Sigh….
