Weekly Reads TBR

Hello everyone! It is time for another Weekly Reads TBR!

This week I have four days off! So I have plans to read a few books this week and I’m so excited!

So I started Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh and so far I like it! It’s really interesting! I got this for review from BN Fest a few months ago! I hope in the end I like it  because I honestly haven’t heard much about it honestly!

I have like 100 pages left of The Hazel Wood so I plan on finishing that today as well! It’s really interesting and unique and really like nothing I have ever read! It’s like a cool adventure story mixed with magic, and mystery! I love it so much!

I also want to read Banished by Betsy Schow which I got for review off Netgalley! It sounds interesting and is about Camelot and the Wizard of Oz! Reminds me of Once Upon a Time so I’m here for it!

Oh! I almost forgot that I am currently listening to the audiobook of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith! I finished The Cuckoo’s Calling already and it was so amazing! I loved it so much! I’m about 90 pages into The Silkworm after starting it yesterday so I hope that I can finish it this week while I’m like doing chores and cleaning!

So I have a lot to read this week! I have three days off this week so I’m happy I get a chance to read some books!

I hope I get a chance to read a lot but we shall see what I really do get done! I know this is a day late but whatever hahahaha I was actually a little busy yesterday and also I’ve been really sick so I took medicine and passed out at around 9:30 pm. I slept for like almost 12 hours I think it was great!

Anyways,

So currently I am still reading The Spring Girls…I know! I don’t know why it’s taking me so long but I plan on finishing it this week I swear! I won’t mention much else about it I hope! I plan to just finish it!

Another book I am currently working on is The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. I got the audiobook from my library and I’m currently listening to that! I’m about 4 1/2 hours in and I have about 10 hours left! I hope to finish it this weekend so I can turn it back in! It’s really good! I’m really enjoying it! I placed a hold on the second book so once I get that one I’ll start that as well once I’m done with this one!

Summary: The Cuckoo’s Calling is a 2013 crime fiction novel by J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

A brilliant mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel’s suicide.

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.

Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

You may think you know detectives, but you’ve never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you’ve never seen them under an investigation like this.

I also want to read the Hazel Wood! I’m super excited to start it! I have an eARC from Netgalley so I plan on reading it and writing a review! It sounds so amazing so I hope I like it!

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

I also got an arc of Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glen Marsh! I got it at Book Fest at Barnes and Nobles so I’m really excited to start it! This cover is stunning!

Summary: Odessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers, catering to the kingdom’s ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?

I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish another book but if I do I want to maybe start either Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry or Banished by Betsy Schow. Most likely Say You’ll Remember Me because I have a blog tour coming up for that so I want to make sure I’m prepared!

Let me know what you plan on reading this week as I would love to know and I’ll see you in my next post!

Hello! I’m here to talk about what I am currently reading this week! I got through Meet Cute and I’m almost done with The Spring Girls by Anna Todd!

So now I just have to start and finish Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely! I’m so excited to read it because it’s a YA western! It sounds really interesting to me and I can’t wait to see what I think about it!

dc778b14ebda0e5616d48a65ad527798

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Serendipity “Pity” Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. She’s been offered a life of fame and fortune in Cessation, a glittering city where lawlessness is a way of life. But the price she pays for her freedom may be too great….
In this extraordinary debut from Lyndsay Ely, the West is once again wild after a Second Civil War fractures the U.S. into a broken, dangerous land. Pity’s struggle against the dark and twisted underbelly of a corrupt city will haunt you long after the final bullet is shot.

I want to start an audiobook so maybe I’ll start reading an audiobook this weekend as well…maybe I’ll get to it on the way to work and stuff since I have about an hours drive both ways!

So hopefully I’ll get to those books! I really want to so wish me luck!

Let me know your reading plans are for the weekend! I work tomorrow and Sunday so I have to get all my reading done before work and after work!

Rereading Plans in 2018

So 2018 is basically upon up and there are some books that I really want to try to reread in 2018. Most of these are mainly because a book in the series or that bookish world is coming out so I want to be caught up. Actually basically all of these are because of that…

Anyways here are some of the books I plan on rereading next year!

  1. The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E Pearson. I love this series so much! And I haven’t read the last one because I’m scared AF. But the newest book in this world comes out in August. So I plan on rereading the series closer to the release date so I can hope right in!

2. Next I want to reread the ACOTAR series in preparation for the novella A Court of Frost and Starlight coming out in May 2018. I really want to reread the series so I can be caught up!

The_ACOTAR_series

3. Another book I want to reread is Caraval! Mainly so I can also tab and remember everything before Legendary comes out! Caraval was one of my favorite books of 2017 so I’m super excited for Legendary!

4. I also want to reread An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, because I want to read A Torch Against the Night and have that in preparation for A Reaper at the Gates! I’m super excited!

5. This last one is still up for debate but I want to try and reread the first two books in the Falling  Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes, and then continue on with the rest of the series in preparation for Immortal Reign. I won’t read them in time but I want to reread them sometime this year so that I can tab everything and remember all the details!

fallingkingdoms 123456

And those are the top five book series that I want to reread in 2018! I think I can do it so I’m really excited to dive into them all!

Let me know in the comments if you plan on reread some books or book series and which ones as I would love to know!

Hello!! It’s Friday! And I finally have a day off after working 7 days in a row!

I AM EXHAUSTED.

Today I am hanging out with Lizzie over at Stellar Kitten Book Reviews who is one of my best and dearest friends ever! Were going book shopping and just hanging out! Then I’m going to go see Star Wars with my parents afterwards which will be so fun!

But I thought I would update you all on what I am reading right now.

I am currently reading The Spring Girls by Anna Todd. I am about 20% through and since I’ve been working a lot I haven’t had a chance to read much of it since I’ve been sleeping and resting.

The Spring Girls is super cute so far. I honestly haven’t really anything by Anna Todd but I am hoping I like them so I can start the After series that I have in my room waiting for me to read!

Next I want to finish Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather which I’m also almost done with! It’s really good so I’m excited to read it and finally finish it because it’s been taking me FOREVER to read!

Lastly I want to read The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily by Linda Creedle. I got this arc from HMH Teen at YallWest so I really want to read this because it sounds really good!

33413929._SR1200,630_

Summary: When Lily Michaels-Ryan ditches her ADHD meds and lands in detention with Abelard, who has Asperger’s, she’s intrigued—Abelard seems thirty seconds behind, while she feels thirty seconds ahead. It doesn’t hurt that he’s brilliant and beautiful.

When Abelard posts a quote from The Letters of Abelard and Heloise online, their mutual affinity for ancient love letters connects them. The two fall for each other. Hard. But is it enough to bridge their differences in person?

This hilarious, heartbreaking story of human connection between two neurodivergent teens creates characters that will stay with you long after you finish reading.

I’m just so ready to read this so I hope to start it this week during my time off!

I also will attempt to start Throne of Glass and annotate it and mark my favorite quotes and stuff so I want to get started on my monthly goal of rereading that series!

And that’s all I plan to read this week till the weekend so let me know in the comments what you want to read and your thoughts on the books I plan to read and I’ll see you in my next post!
