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!

My Ambitious July TBR: I Aim High

july

Hey Bookworms it’s time for a TBR! Now usually I try to do my Wrap-Up (which you can click and see) and TBR together, but I am trying to aim high with this one and read 20 books, so I didn’t want to overwhelm you guys with 34 books in one post. Hence the separate posts. Now some of these will be from my 20 Books of Summer Goal, some will be library books, that I need to read, and others will be what I am currently craving. I’ll start with the books I’m currently reading, and move to library books, and then so on! Now I may not describe them all in great detail, but as always the Goodreads links are in the title.

July TBR

1. Frostfire by Amanda Hocking

Frostfire

I am only a bit in, but I am really liking it so far! I like trolls who knew?

2. When You’re Back by Abbi Glines

When You're Back

I’m half way through and I have a few feelings and a bit of confusion, but I will wait till the end of it to decide how to address them after aka a review.

3. Princess in Waiting by Meg Cabot

Princess in Waiting

Don’t love this new reader, but the audio books are quick and easy reads. Not my favorite read of the series so far, but still funny.

4. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the Ashes

Yeah I didn’t do well in the readalong, but I want to finish it this month! I found the audio book on Scribd, so I’m hoping it helps.

5. Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

A Clash of Kings

Now I don’t know if I will be able to finish this, but I hope to get the majority of it done in July.

6. There’s No Place Like Here by Cecelia Ahern

There's No Place Like Here

Another Cecelia Ahern audio book and I hope it is a good copy. My library ones have been a hit and miss.

7. The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks

The Longest Ride

The only Sparks movie I love besides A Walk to Remember. Got this as a library audio book as well, so we’ll see!

8. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon

Reread for me from the library and I hope I find comfort in this couple once more!

9 Hotblooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Veguie

Hot Blooded

Read the first book in the fall and I am eager to see what happens to these characters. It looks like I am the first to read this library book, so I am even more eager to read it

10. The Young Elites by Marie Lu

The Young Elites

Another Library book that I can’t wait to read! The synopsis makes me think of X-men so I am even more eager to read it!

11. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Blood and Starlight

I listened to the audiobook of the first. This book is huge and it’s a library book, so I must at least attempt to tackle it! I would rather listen to the audio book though since the reader is the same and I loved her.

12. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses

I am so sad that I had to cancel my Uppercase subscription for a bit (sucks being a broke college student), but in the meantime I plan to finish this in the meantime.

13. Tiger Lily by Jodi Anderson

Tiger Lily

Peter Pan retelling that I’ve had forever and haven’t read. I found the audiobook on scribd, so may half it or start it to get me going.

14. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen

I have had this since March and I’ve wanted to read it since the trailer. I waited for the hype to die down, so I am safe to not be influenced and ready to get it started!

15. Switched by Amanda Hocking

Switched

This is a reread for me, but I want to finish the series and I read this years ago! I am hoping Frostfire will spark me to finish the series!

16. Torn by Amanda Hocking

Torn

Book 2: Because binge reading can’t hurt right?

17. Ascend by Amanda Hocking

Ascend

Book 3: Because I really want to finish a series this month!

18. Past My Defenses by Wendy Sparrow

perf5.000x8.000.indd

I bought this books thanks to Judith at Bookdr3ams! It’s a werewolf book there needs to be nothing more to be said to get me to pick it up!

19. This Weakness for You by Wendy Sparrow

This Weakness For You

Sequel to the book above, so why not try and finish them both in one month.

20. Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

I am determined to finish this book this month! For me summer is the perfect time to read Kelley Armstrong books maybe because it is when I read my first book by her.

That is all for now bookworms! I am not saying I will stick to it, but it will be awesome if I do! I will probably deviate from it because I am in a READ ALL THE BOOKS mood! Sadly I am not a speed reader, so that goal is probably not doable. What do you plan on reading? Do you feel your goals are too big some time? Have you read any of these? Share your feels, but no spoilers please! Happy Reading!
