Hey all! I’m here with my super ambitious TBR for this week. I know I probably won’t be finishing all of these books but I want to get most of them done this week! I don’t really have much going on in terms of homework but I have stuff going on eventually so I might try to get some stuff done.
Anyways I plan on getting quite a few books done! There is a list of books I plan on tackling this week!
There’s a small theme where I have a couple books that are books that I have sequels I need to read.
The first book I plan on reading/finishing is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I have about an hour left on the audiobooks I will be done with it today for sure! And then I’ll be starting another, but wow this book is just amazing and I love it so much! I can see why the people of the world love it as much as they do!
Summary: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
I also need to finish it up The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani. I started it and I got through about 45 pages before I fell asleep last night. That’s also my goal for today as well. After all my errands I plan on coming home to read this book!
It’s very good and I can’t wait to finish it.
And this is the first audiobook I plan on listening to this week after The Hate U Give is done. I plan on continuing the Mortal Instruments series alongside the Infernal Devices so I’m very excited to continue on! Ive heard not so good things about the audiobook so let’s hope that I like it!
And I also want to get to the audiobook of Clockwork Prince and I’ll be starting it right after I finish City of Fallen Angels because I’m loving this series since I’ve never read these books before so I’m binge reading them like crazy! And I’m loving them! I’m not leaving a summary for this one and City of Fallen Angels incase people haven’t read them before so I don’t spoil anything!
And I also want to read this book: The Novice by Taran Matharu. I have heard really good things about this book and so I plan on reading it this week but I think it’s going to be a book that I sort of put off till I am finished with the books I really am making a priority this week. But I really want to read it so I checked it out from my library to give it a go!
Summary: When blacksmith apprentice Fletcher discovers that he has the ability to summon demons from another world, he travels to Adept Military Academy. There the gifted are trained in the art of summoning. Fletcher is put through grueling training as a battlemage to fight in the Hominum Empire’s war against orcs. He must tread carefully while training alongside children of powerful nobles. The power hungry, those seeking alliances, and the fear of betrayal surround him. Fletcher finds himself caught in the middle of powerful forces, with only his demon Ignatius for help.
As the pieces on the board maneuver for supremacy, Fletcher must decide where his loyalties lie. The fate of an empire is in his hands. The Novice is the first in a trilogy about Fletcher, his demon Ignatius, and the war against the Orcs.
This is the first book that is the first book in a series where I have a sequel that I need to read for review. I have Winter Glass, so I want to read Spindle Fire which I have heard many good things about so I am super excited to check this one out!
Summary: A kingdom burns. A princess sleeps. This is no fairy tale.
It all started with the burning of the spindles.
It all started with a curse…
Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.
And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood—and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.
As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.
Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape…or the reason for her to stay.
And the last book that I plan on reading this week is Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz. I got the sequel Love and War for review from the publisher so I want to make this one a priority as well to get it read and reviewed early so it’s prepared and such. I love Hamilton so I am so excited to read this book! I cannot wait to start it!
Summary: Their romance shaped a nation. The rest was history.
1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
And that is my crazy ambitious TBR for you. I mean I really think I can do it. I’m almost done with The Night Diary so I’ll be finishing it tomorrow. But I am also planning on reading City of Fallen Angels asap so I think I can do most of this at least. But my goal is to get most of it done.
Wish me luck!
I need it!
Let me know what books you want to read this week because I would love to know!
