MONTHLY TBR #12 | March 2019

Uww, look, a month in which I have a break, so maybe I can get some reading done! (…unlikely, but still). I’m pretty excited for this month. However, for this month, I’m not going to be picking out new books from my TBR jar because I didn’t finish the ones I picked last month. But! I’ll still put them down in this TBR. Also, since my in-progress books have been on here for…a while, I’m not going to have any commentary on them!


 

Sister Citizens: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America by Melissa V. Harris-Perry

The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount

Another Country by James Baldwin

Empire of Sin: A Story of Sex, Jazz, Murder, and the Battle for Modern New Orleans by Gary Krist

Bulletproof by Jeff LaFerney


Okay, so I actually have read this book before, back when I first got it in elementary or middle school. I just don’t remember a thing, so I figured I would reread it. I actually met the author when my mom bought it for me! He was running a writing workshop I went to — I was really into writing at the time and wanted to be an author when I was older. He personalized it and everything! Anyway, it’s a mystery book with a main character with psychic powers who tries to solve a murder.

February 2019 TBR

Hoping to get to this next week over break…we’ll see, haha.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury


I originally read the classic in school and remember liking it. So, I figured “why not?” Let’s see if it holds up after five years! It probably won’t because I’m really picky now about classics I think are good, but we can at least try it out. For those who don’t know, Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian book set in a world where books are considered illegal and are burned upon seeing them.

February 2019 TBR

Another book I hope to get to over spring break!

Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World by Bill Nye


Fun fact: I bought a copy for both myself and my partner back when it first came out. It was signed! I actually pre-ordered it! Well, guess what, y’all. Neither of us have read it yet. It’s been almost four years, and we haven’t touched it. So I was pretty content when I pulled it out of my TBR jar.

February 2019 TBR

I don’t think I’ll be able to get to this, but…sometime this month, yes. I don’t think a few months would make a huge difference since it’s been almost four years since I’ve bought, but ya know.

Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen


This was one that was on my TBR last month, and it’s being transferred to February. Still hoping it’s good and that, ya know, I actually get to it. It’ll be interesting to see if there are things I don’t know about in this books.

February 2019 TBR

I know for sure I won’t be able to get to this for break — I left it in my dorm room. But I really want to read it this month!

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo


The more I stare it, the less I want to read it, but I really want to read King of Scars. So. You see my predicament. I do have to say, though, I absolutely love the cover. Just not that excited for the plot, ya know?

February 2019 TBR

Another book I didn’t bring home with me, but I’m not too worried about it. It’s a quick read.

Sadie by Courtney Summers


I’ve had the audiobook on hold since the day after Christmas, and I’m fifth on the list now…I just want to read it because I’ve heard nothing but good things about Sadie. I hope I can get it this month.

February 2019 TBR

I’m number one on the list now! Yay! I’m really excited for this book, I can’t wait to get it!

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I found this at the library when I came home from college, and it seemed interesting! I usually don’t go for sci-fi, but I’m intrigued. It has a space crew who work with their sentient space ship, and…that sounds so cool??

Parkland by Dave Cullen

Another book I found at the library! It’s about the Parkland shooting, but it isn’t really focused on the shooting itself. Instead, it’s about the teens who go out and advocate in the aftermath of the shooting. I’m hoping to finish it before break ends and that it’s good!


And there you go! I know it’s…a ton of books, but I think I can do it.

What about you all? What do you plan on reading this month, or are currently reading? Let me know!

Until next time~

MONTHLY TBR #11 | February 2019

Hi, everyone! I know I’m surprised every time another month rolls around, but uh…I’m shocked it’s already February. I’m so not ready for it…ha! So, I”m kinda re-doing my format for TBRs — I am now dividing it into books I have started reading, haven’t started reading, and books that I’ve picked from my TBR jar. Thought it would make it look nicer. Let’s get into what I (hope I) will read for February!


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

Hey, look, it’s my favorite HP book that I definitely could’ve finished last month but didn’t. Here’s to hoping I can finish it this month. If not, oh well, I’m stopping the reread for the year. #SorryNotSorry.

The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount

I’m hoping to finish this within the first couple weeks — it’s actually a really fun book so far. I just have a horrible time reading on my laptop. I get so easily distracted… anywho, I have pretty high hopes for this book!

Empire of Sin: A Story of Sex, Jazz, and Murder in the Battle of New Orleans by Gary Krist

We’ll just ignore the fact that I forgot to include this in my wrap-up for January. I barely made a dent in this book; the last part of January was just super hectic for me, and I didn’t have the time to read as much as I wanted. However, I have a solid day to get through this book, and I think I can do it…We’ll see if I actually succeed.

Sister Citizens: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America by Melissa V. Harris-Perry

To be honest, I don’t know if we’re reading the whole book for class or just chunks of it. If we only read parts, then I will try to finish it on my own, but I’m not going to beat myself up over it if I don’t. If we do read all of it…then that’s another book down!

Bulletproof by Jeff LaFerney

Okay, so I actually have read this book before, back when I first got it in elementary or middle school. I just don’t remember a thing, so I figured I would reread it. I actually met the author when my mom bought it for me! He was running a writing workshop I went to — I was really into writing at the time and wanted to be an author when I was older.

Campfire by Shawn Sarles

I placed a hold on this one last month, and I’m still #10 on the list… I don’t think I’ll be able to get to this one, but I’ll put it down just in case. It sounded pretty interesting at the library — Campfire is a horror YA book about a family going camping in the forest. You see where this is going, right?


Send me productive thoughts because I’m going to really need them this month if I’m going to get through eleven books in the shortest month of the year. Seriously. What the hell did I get myself into?

Are any of you like me, and decided to tackle a bunch of books this month? What are you thinking of reading? Let me know!

Until next time~

MONTHLY TBR #11 | January 2019

…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!
