…It’s already 2019? Excuse me? Wow, time flies. Well, another month, another TBR. Before we get started, though, I do want to point out that I am trying something new with my TBR. I noticed that my stack of unread physical books have been…growing, to say the least. So, to help minimize this, I put slips of paper with the titles of these books written on them in a jar. Each month, I will draw a number of slips from the jar to read these books while still having a few books I choose to read as well. Hopefully, this can decrease my physical TBR stack by a considerable amount throughout the year. What that explained…let’s begin!
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Like I said in my December wrap-up, I started this but was not able to finish before the month ended. So here I am! I hope it is as good as everyone says it is.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
I rented this from my library when I first come home for winter break. I am very excited to start it; I love ghost books. And I love the cover!
Campfire by Shawn Sarles
Another book I picked up from the library that I have to read before going back to college. It sounds very spooky, and it has been a while since I read a nice horror or thriller book. I have not seen anyone that I know review it, so it will be interesting if I like it or not.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
One of my favorite Harry Potter books! I’m so excited to listen to the audiobook. I wonder what Professor Lupin and Sirius Black sound like… Ohhh, can’t wait!
The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount
I got a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review. I’m pretty excited for it! It is another YA book, and it seems to have a ghost-y feel. I cannot wait to see what this book has for me!
Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loener
I am a semi-big history buff, so I love these kinds of books. I always like learning about how crappy the U.S. education was in teaching me accurate history. On top of that, I just like learning history in general, especially when it involves marginalized groups.
Empire of Sin by Gary Krist
I do not even remember when I bought this book…maybe a couple years ago? Though, I am pretty sure I bought it for the reasons I bought the prior book: I love learning the lesser-known parts of history.
Sula by Toni Morrison
I actually read most of this a few years ago, but I do not remember it at all. So, I figured that re-reading it would be a great idea. On top of that, it is a classic, and one written by a black woman, too!
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I am so glad I drew this book! I have been meaning to read the GrishaVerse trilogy, and what better time than the beginning of the new year? It will be a nice refresher, too, before I read King of Scars when it comes out!
And that is it! I know that 9 books is a bit much for me, but I am up for the chllenge. So, what are you all reading this month? Let me know!
