August TBR 2015

IMG_0774

Hola! How’re you today?

I thought I’d my TBR for August with you. I read 15 books in July, so hopefully I can keep up with that. I currently have 98 physical books on my TBR shelf, which I hope to knock down to 90 by September.

I’m planning to take part in the BookTubeAThon from the 3rd to the 9th, and you can check out my TBR if you’d like, as I wont mention those in this one.

The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Can you believe I’ve never read this? I’m super excited for this one.

Eclipse – Stephanie Meyer

IMG_0778

The third book in the Twilight series. I think its about time I finished this series, and I plan/hope to marathon the last two books and novella soon.

Saving Jackie K – L.D.C. Fitzgerald

IMG_0784

I adored 11.22.63 by Stephen King because I really enjoy reading about JFK, and this is all about Jackie Kennedy. So I’m excited for this.

The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden – Jessica Sorensen

IMG_0780

I need to throw a New Adult in the mix every now and then and I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one.

Warm Bodies – Isaac Marion

A short book about zombies and I’ve still not seen the film!


I hope to get through all of these, as well as the books in my BookTubeAThon TBR. I doubt I will do it, but one can dream!

What do plan on reading this month?

BookTubeAThon TBR 2015

 

Hello again all of you beautiful people! How are you today?

The BookTubeAThon is near and I’m here to talk about my TBR for the week. There is a BookTubeAThon YouTube channel that you can checkout. It has all of the information you could ever need there.

There are seven challenges that I hope to complete. (Hopefully).

  • Book With Blue On The Cover AND The Last Book You Acquired

P.S I Still Love You – Jenny Han

I am a little way through this already, so I may finish this before the readathon starts.

  • Read Somebodies Favourite Book

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl is pretty much everyone’s favourite book and I’m so excited to read it! Even though it is a rather large book.

  • A Book By An Author Who Shares The Same First Letter Of Your Last Name

An Abundance Of Katherines – John Green

My last name begins with a J, but I have no others at all on my TBR shelf that begins with that. So I went for John Green as his first name begins with a J.

  • Finish A Book Without Letting Go Of It

Waiting – Carol Lynch Williams 

This is short, the font is pretty big, and I think it may be written in verse (but don’t quote me on that!)

  • A Book You Really Want To Read

Severed Heads and Broken Hearts (The Beginning Of Everything) – Robyn Schneider

I WANNA READ THIS SO BAD!

  • Read 7 Books Overall

I also hope to get to The Bling Ring by Nancy Jo Sales and Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger too. (But I’m not promising anything)

    

Are you taking part in the Booktubeathon? If so, what are you reading?

Have a wonderful day everyone!

July Book Haul 2015

 

Hello! Hello! How are you?

I’m here today to show you the books I bought in July! I recently had to put myself on a bit of a book buying ban as my physical TBR shelf was getting out of hand, and it was kind of getting me down. Plus, I don’t really have money to spend on books at the moment. So 5 books is pretty good for me, and they’re all books I really want to read/are sequels to books I already own.

1. Fairest – Marissa Meyer

This is a novella and is part of the Lunar Chronicles series. It’s all about the origin of Queen Levana. This follows Levana as she grows up in her sisters shadow, all the way up until she becomes the Queen of Luna. This is all about how she becomes so evil.

2. Cress – Marissa Meyer

The third instalment of the Lunar Chronicle series, following on from where Scarlet left off. I cant really say much about this without spoiling the first two books, but this follows Linh Cinder and her slightly strange group of friends as they try to stop evil Queen Levana from taking over Earth. *insert dramatic music here*

3. The Retribution of Mara Dyer – Michelle Hodkin

This is the third book in the Mara Dyer series. I have yet to read the second one, but now I can marathon them!

4. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han

I have heard to many great things about this book! It sounds like a light easy contemporary and I can’t wait to read it! This is about young Lara Jean who rights letters to the boys she loves, then seals them up, never to show them to anyone. However, one day, they get sent out and Lara Jean has to deal with the consequences.

5. P.S I Still Love You – Jenny Han 

This is the final book in the duology to the  “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” series. I plan to marathon the two books.

What books did you buy in July? Have you read any of these?

Hope you’ve had a great month!

Cram-a-thon TBR

Hello again! Today I’m coming at you with my Cram-a-thon TBR. In case you didn’t know, Cram-a-thon is a readathon created by Whitney over at WhittyNovels on YouTube. The whole point of this readathon is to try and read as many of your small books over the weekend. The readathon starts on the 10th July and lasts until the 13th July. There are also 7 challenges you can complete which are:

  • A children’s book
  • A hardback nook
  • Read two books in 24 hours
  • A graphic novel
  • 5 books over the duration of the readathon
  • A book written in verse
  • A novella

So here’s what I’ll be reading during the readathon! It’s a bit overly ambitious and I am working Friday and Saturday, but hey ho! I’m challenging myself.

Love Sick – Jake Coburn
Pages: 228

Honestly not too sure what this is about. An alcoholic much watch over a bulimic. That’s all I really know, but I love going into a book blind.

Stardust – Neil Gaiman

Pages: 194

I’ve seen the film and rather enjoyed it, but I love Neil Gaiman’s writing. This is about a young man who goes to collect a falling star to give to the woman he loves. Bring on a crazy adventure!

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson

41fqnP5mW-L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

Pages: 92 – Although Im currently on 31. 91-31=61 pages left.

A classic that I’ve never read but I’m enjoying it so far. Im listening to it on audiobook and reading along with it on my Kindle.

Lying Out Loud – Kody Keplinger

gallery-1429910117-keplinger-lol-hi-res

Pages: 309 – Although I am on page 150 already. 309-150=159.

Yes. Another Kody Keplinger book, but I’m on a roll right now. Reading this on my Kindle and enjoying it (like I knew I would). Set in Hamilton, once again, this follows Sonny, who is a professional liar, and everything she gets into. I’m hoping to fly through this and finish it first.

The Selection – Keira Cass

The_Selection_Cover

Pages: 336

This may have the most pages but I’m sure I’m just going to fly through it (that’s if I enjoy it). I’m told it’s like a love competition in a dystopian world? So I should like it!

Are you taking part in the Cram-a-thon? What are you reading? I know I won’t complete any challenges but will you?

Let me know!

Happy Thursday!
