January TBR: Books I’m Starting My Year With

Hey bookworms! I am back again I know a little shocking compared to last year, but hopefully I can keep this “streak” on a roll. Speaking of keeping on a roll here are some of the books I plan to keep my reading going. So lets get going before my eyes get too tired to write as I am working on this Thursday night after work to have it up by Friday!

January TBR: Books to Start My Year Off With

1.  The Rose Society by Marie Lu

The Rose Society.jpg

I am currently listening to this and have almost finished it. Honestly I’m feeling kinda meh about it, and I don’t know if it is because of the gap between the first book and this one, or because the first was a bit of a let down but I’m determined to finish it. If anything for that gorgeous cover!!

2. Moon Chosen by PC Cast

Moon Chosen

I’m determined to either finish this or get close to finishing it because I want an excuse to buy the second one that has a cover that is just as pretty!

3. Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray

Before the Devil Breaks You

The one bad thing about borrowing books from the library if you don’t finish the book before your turn is up you have to wait again. Hopefully I will get my turn before the month is over.

4. The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

The Isle of the Lost

Another book I am determined to finish this month no matter what happens!

 

Well bookworms that’s all for now because I have to get ready for bed. This list may grow as my holds come from the library. What books are keeping you company this month? Let me know in the comments below and happy reading!

September TBR: The Books I Want to Try to Sneak in Between the Piles of Homework

September TBR

Hey bookworms! It’s me again! I thought since I got my wrap-up last night I thought I would let you all in on the books I am going to try to read in September. Now with me in my last semester of University (bf just thought: a school bus would make the time of year more recognizable to readers plus it made an awesome banner) I know I probably won’t have much time to leisure read… So that being said, my overall goal is 8-12 books, but not pressuring myself much because school is enough pressure. Plus I also have already read 3 books over this long weekend! That being said here is what I hope to get to or at least the ones that are currently on my mind..

September TBR

1. Hot Blooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

Hot Blooded

I am currently reading this and plan to get back to it when I finish this blog post! Only in the first few pages, but these authors do a good job of pulling you back in!

2. The Jewel by Amy Ewing

The Jewel

Library book I finally got my turn for but it is due in 6 days, so will be one of the ones I have to hurry to finish!

3. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen

Alias Hook

After reading Tiger Lily I was craving another retelling, so I picked this up on Thursday from the library. I hope this is a good one because I’ve been wanting to read it since I first started blogging.

4. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

Current reread and hope to finish tonight or tomorrow. Tuesday at latest.

5. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Howl's Moving Castle

My favorite book and movie. This will be a reread for me but a first read for Paige as we plan to start this at the same time to see if she likes it enough for the 2nd book to be worth it for our twist on a Traveling Book. We’ve tried emailing during a buddy read, but school can get in the way, so with our traveling book starting the book with one of us and then sending it to the other before sending it back to the original. We can share our thoughts and make the read a mini book club between the 2 of us.

6. Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

Sisterhood Everlasting

I plan to finish my reread of the series with an audiobook of this which I play to listen to in a bit before bed. Hopefully listening won’t hit me too hard with the feels.

8. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Vol 6 by Naoko Takeuchi, William Flanagan (Translator)

Sailor Moon Vol 6

As I mentioned in my Wrap-Up I am reading the rest of the series from the library, so of course the next two make it on my list. =)

9. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Vol 7 by Naoko Takeuchi, William Flanagan (Translator)

Sailor Moon Vol 7

11. Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

Red's Untold Tale

I almost forgot this one! I received a digital ARC of this from Netgalley. It is downloaded on the Kindle App I installed on my nook. It releases on the 22nd, so I want to try and have it read by next Friday and a review up on that Saturday. Well wish me luck on this one! Red is one of my favorite characters, so I’m really hoping that I love it!

Well, bookworms, those are the books that are currently sitting on my mind. Now these do not include readathons I plan to join just the ones that are calling to me right now. So have you read any of these? What are you feelings on them? What are your goals for reading? Feel free to let me know in the comments! Happy reading!

My Last READATHON of Summer: #BoutofBooks 14 TBR and Goals

BoB14-200x200

Hey bookworms! Hope your weekend went well! Sorry I haven’t been active these last few days… I have been running into issues with school and finding out all these issues has been from the internet. So hence my avoiding my computer… Figures my last semester of my undergrad that I tried so hard to make run smoothly did the opposite. On that note I was looking for something fun to cheer me up! Now what is fun for a book blogger? A Readathon of course! I had been looking for one for August and stumbled across it when I saw a TBR for it on youtube. I have done the Bout of Books before, and had lots of fun before, so why not give it another go! If you don’t know what Bout of Books is:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Now that I’ve given you the neccessary info, so you can join the fun! Let’s decide what my goals and books to read will be because this is totally last minute! *blushes slightly*

Bout of Books Goals

So goals! Something I have never been the best at keeping! Let’s face it I set goals and then get distracted from them easily… I figured though setting goals will get me back in the school set of mind because I am going to try to be better at time management my last semester! So that being said I will have a goal of 5 books AND keeping track daily of how many pages I read daily. That is not going to include the audiobooks because the ones I do listen to most of them I do not have physical copies of. I will list the number of chapters listened to though! So what will I try to read this week? I will list a few that are on my mind now:

 Tentative TBR

1. Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories

I am close to the end of this book, so if I don’t finish it tonight I want to finish it tonight. I definitely want to finish it by Monday!

2. Princess Mia by Meg Cabot

Princess Mia

I have 80ish pages left and since it is almost Midnight this will probably be the first book I finish. I can really relate to Mia in this one, so I can already guess that I will probably give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

3. Forever Princess by Meg Cabot

Forever Princess

I am almost finished reading Princess Mia, so why not add this one onto my TBR. Thank god I found Scribd. I really recommend this site to bookworms on a budget. No I am not paid to promote them. I just post about them a lot because I wish I would’ve found them sooner, and hopefully I will help another bookworm do so!

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and The Dawn

Another library book due this week! I need to finish this by Friday, so I know this will be the one I for sure finish during this readathon!

5. Vampire Game Vol 1 by Judal

Vampire Game Vol 1

Gotta have a manga to break things up, so hopefully it will be a good reason to finish this book!

6. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

I am falling back in love with this book again! I am traveling through this book which is great because I am going stir crazy not having been anywhere during the break. I am slow on it because I got distracted by Mia’s problems but I drift to it through out the day

7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

A childhood read if I get too weighed down or momentarily bored with the others. Plus I’d rather go to Hogwarts than worry about my school stress!

8. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

This will most likely be my next audio book read after I finish Thanks for the Memories. I am really hoping to love this book although if I do not love the narrator I will switch to the copy of the e-book that I own.

9. Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

This is on my monthly TBR and I really at least want to get into this book! I miss Clay and Elena!

10. Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

Red's Untold Tale

Guess what Bookworms?! I am happy to say I got approved for an ARC on Netgalley. I also figured out how to get it to send to my kindle apps! I feel so smart to have figured that out! I really am horribly untech savvy. Which was why I was beyond nervous to request it, but I figured it out! Like my mom says to the kids at her school (she’s a secretary) “Kiss your brain” I was so proud that I bested the tech in my life! Anywho I am beyond shocked I was approved! I am huge Oncer fan, so I really want to try and get some of this done by school.

Yes my bookworm friends, I know I have my goal set at 5! I am such a mood reader lately, so to have options lately is my best option. Not including the fact is I am a book polygamist as well! So that is it for now bookworms! Are you participating in this readathon? Let me know and link me your TBR’s. If you want to see updates as I read you can follow me on Twitter @CKReads. Good luck with your reading week, and especially if you’re already back to school! Happy reading!
