TBR, Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday | Spring 2020 TBR

screenshot_2019-01-29 artstudio โ€“ dashboard(5)

Hello Lovelies! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is to show off your Spring 2020 TBR. There were MANY books I could have chosen for this topic due to my never ending TBR pile lol. However, I wanted to choose books that I could actually see myself reading in the next couple of months considering my last few TBR posts haven’t gone so well. Anyways, here are the top ten books on my Spring TBR!


40126121. sy475

โˆดย Ruthless Gods (Something Dark and Holy #2) โˆด

I got an ARC of this MONTHS ago and I’ve been wanting to read it for a while. After just finishing Wicked Saints a couple of weeks ago, I’m finally ready to read this book! I’m so excited (yet honestly terrified) to find out what will happen to my babies next!


43204703. sy475

โˆดย A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) โˆด

I’ve been wanting to read this book since before its release. I’ve even started the first 100 pages and have loved it! I just sat it down and never continued… But now I’m really ready to dive into this book and potentially its sequel.


35702241

โˆดย The Shadows Between Us โˆด

As soon as I heard about this book, I was intrigued. I am all here for morally grey characters and a hate-to-love romance. So bring it on!


17314430

โˆดย Wait for You (Wait for You #1) โˆด

I love Jennifer’s fantasy stuff and I have been wanting to read her contemporary stuff forever. So I’m going to really try to get to it within the next month or so.


43693948. sy475

โˆดย The Sounds of Us Trilogy โˆด

The final book in this beautiful trilogy came out over a month ago, and I still haven’t read it. Ughhhh. I love these books so much and I had been waiting for the last book for so long and it hurts that I haven’t read it yet. I know I’m going to have to reread the first two books in order to read the last one so I have been putting it off. But I’m finally hoping to commit to the rereads and get to this book in the next few weeks.


43174656. sy475

โˆดย The Darkest Assassin (Lords of the Underworld #14.6) โˆด

I’ve been putting off reading this book because I knew my bookish hangover for this series was only going to get worse if I read this book. Now that William’s book is FINALLY out, I am ready to read them both and I am SOOOO excited!


36314220. sy475

โˆดย Ghosts of the Shadow Market โˆด

Despite loving Cassie Clare, I have been putting off reading this book because the stories in it did not appeal to me at its release. Now after talking to some people and hearing some more about this book, I am really interested in reading it.


46249012

โˆดย Bone Crier’s Moon (Bone Grace #1) โˆด

The cover of this book was what initially attracted me to it, but after reading the synopsis, I have been dying to get my hands on it. And I plan on diving right in as soon as my copy gets here!


30075662. sy475

โˆดย Aurora Rising (The Aurora Cycle #1) โˆด

After going on my Jay Kristoff binge this past year, I am more than ready to dive into this book. And just in time for the sequel to come out!


32650276. sy475

โˆดย Tempest (The Scarab Beetle #6) โˆด

This is another one of those books that has been on my most anticipated releases list for literal years and, despite it releasing almost three months ago, I still haven’t read it. I feel like a failure to my favorite authors lol. I’m definitely going to read this ASAP though.


Thank you for joining me on TTT. What are some books on your Spring 2020 TBR? Feel free to leave a link to your post so I can check it out! And what did you think of my answers? Are you excited for any of the books I mentioned or have you read them already? If so, what did you think of them?

The three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think youโ€™ll read next?

I know that it is not Wednesday, but since my Wednesdays are taken up by myย Top 5 Wednesday post, I post my WWWs on Monday. It is the start of the week and just makes more sense for me personally.


Currently Reading:

23264671

I am currently reading Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle #2) by Jay Kristoff. I am LOVING this book and flying though it. I’m really scared because I have heard that it ends on a massive cliffhanger and I have no idea how I’m going to wait for the next book!

 

 


Recently Finished Reading:

26114463

I recently finished reading one of my new favorite books, Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff. I just loved it SO much and flew threw it. There was plot twist after plot twist and I have completely fallen in love with Mia and her world.

My review can be found here if you want to check it out.

 


To Read Next:

I am going to be reading Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff next. I finished the first two books a couple weeks ago and, after my brief break, I am really ready to get back to it. I am SO excited to finally get the conclusion to this series and I can’t wait to read it.

I am currently reading Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff. I am only about 50 pages in (stupid life keeps getting in the way of me continuing), but I am really enjoying it so far. The writing style is really unique and the footnotes have taken some getting used to, but I like them. I have found them to be very useful as far as developing of the world.

 


Recently Finished Reading:

17927395

I recently finished my third reread of my favorite book of all time, A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas. And of course I really enjoyed it! I rewrote my review of the book (which I like much better now) and I did a shit load of tabbing. I seriously have like 80 different tabs coming out of the book now. ๐Ÿคฃ

If you are interested in reading it, my review of this book can be found here.


To Read Next:

Starting this week, I will be participating in the Shelflove Crate Readathon, so I will be reading all of the books I decided on for that. I made a post about my readathon TBR, which can be found here if you are interested.

Extra, Readathon

Shelflove Crate Readathon TBR

Screenshot_2019-05-06 Artstudio โ€“ Dashboard.png

Hello Lovelies! I am SO excited to announce that I will be participating in my first ever readathon!!! That readathon is being done by Shelflove Crate. Here is some information if you want to take part in it:

Shelflove Crate is a Monthly Fantasy/Sci-Fi Young Adult Subscription Box for those of us who love to experience new and exciting worlds through reading!

They are doing their 2nd annual readathon this month. The readathon will take place from May 13th to May 27th. There are twelve challenges (listed below), one for each themed box that they had this year.

There are no rules to this readathon other than just to read and have fun. So whether you want to complete 1 challenge or all 12, double up or not, just do whatever works best for you.


๐•‹๐•™๐•– โ„‚๐•™๐•’๐•๐•๐•–๐•Ÿ๐•˜๐•–๐•ค:

*These images were taken from Shelflove Crate’s Instagram where you can find their full announcement. They also have some recommendations for the readathon if you are interested*


๐•„๐•ช ๐•‹๐”นโ„:

NOTE: I am a mood reader so I have no idea how this readathon is going to go for me. And since there are no rules, I am going to be combining a lot of the categories. There are only 14 days in this readathon and it would be dang near impossible to complete all the challenges otherwise. With that being said, here are the books on my readathon TBR:

I read Three Dark Crowns about a year ago and I really enjoyed it. I did not continue the series because I found out that it hadn’t been completed yet.

Bookshelf Swap, Collabs

Bookshelf Swap with Octavia @ Mythical Reads

Screenshot_2019-04-29 Artstudio โ€“ Dashboard

Hello Lovelies! I am SOO excited to announce a new feature on my blog: Bookshelf Swap! I collaborated with Octavia @ Mythical Reads to do this post today and I highly encourage you to check out her book blog! She is so great and she does a lot of unique posts.

What is Bookshelf Swap?

Bookshelf swap is where you swap pictures of a bookshelf with another blogger and make a post about each others’ bookshelf. You discuss what you have read, how you felt about the books, which books are on your TBR, which books you added to your TBR, and any other general thoughts about their shelf.

I can’t take all of the credit for this, as I originally saw Lauren @ Northern Plunderer do it. I have changed part of it slightly though. Instead of the whole bookcase, I chose to only highlight a couple shelves at a time so you don’t get as many repeat books.

I’m always open to collabing with other bloggers! If you would like to do this with me, you can DM me on Twitter or Instagram or go to myย Contact page and fill out the form.

Hereย is the link to Octavia’s post where she talks about my bookshelves if you want to check it out! ๐Ÿ’•


Octavia’s Bookshelves:

image1[1990]

๐Ÿ”ฎ Octavia’s Bookish Items:

  • I happen to really love the purple minion and find it so adorable!
  • The candles say Atlantica and Nesryn & Sartaq. I happen to love bookish themed candles and I really wish I had more! There are just SOO many great companies out there and I never know which to buy from. I would love it if you could recommend me some!

โœ… Read & Recommend:

This section is about the books that I have read and recommend. I would usually have an additional Read and Do Not Recommend section, but none of the books on this list fit into that category.

๐Ÿ“š On My TBR:

These are books that I already had on my TBR.

โž•ย Added To My TBR:

These are books where I read the synopsis and I found them interesting enough to add to my TBR.

โž–ย Doesn’t Sound Interesting To Me:

All of the books on this list are ones that for some reason or other (most likely the synopsis didn’t grab me or I’m not a big fan of the genre), just didn’t appeal to me. If you have read them and think I should change my mind, please let me know!

โ“ย Still Not Sure About:

These are the books that I am still not sure if I want to discard, but not sure if I want to add to my TBR pile either. I would really appreciate your thoughts on them if you have read them!


Thank you for joining me today! I had SO much fun doing this post and even more fun talking with Octavia! I loved getting to look at her bookshelves and I found many great new books! I am looking forward to doing again soon with someone else’s shelves!

I am currently reading Remember Us This Way (The Sound of Us #1) by C.R. Jane. I just started this book so I don’t really have an opinion on it yet. What I can tell you is that I have been really excited about this book for months and have been dying to read it!

This is a contemporary RH second chance romance. It is about a group of rockstars that made it big and the girl they fell in love with and had to leave behind.

I recently finished reading the first four installments in the Sixth Street Bands series. I highly enjoyed them and I have one more installment to go (which I am scared to read because it is going to be the saddest).

The premise for this series began with a group of bands from Austin Texas, who rose to fame when Damaged, the original Sixth Street band, lost two members in a terrible accident. Through this tragedy, a new group of bands emerged to carry on the Damaged legacy. These are their stories. My review for each book can be found below:

I am currently reading His Goddess by D. Morrissey. I am very much a mood reader and a couple days ago, I was thinking about what I wanted to read next and then, all the sudden, I was like “I want to read an alien romance” so viola!

I was provided an eARC of this book via Hidden Gems Books in exchange for an honest review. I am enjoying is so far (even though I am only about 20% in). You are thrown into things very quickly and the story in moving fast.

This is the third book in the series and I really love it! The world is just so unique and all of the normal rules toward supernaturals doesn’t apply. I feel like this author can go virtually anywhere and it is so exhilarating for me.

40745888This book shouldn’t be a surprise considering the previous sections on this list. I don’t see me out of the blue deciding that I don’t like this series anymore and not reading this book.

I can’t wait to start this book though because I saw a spoiler and I already know who the main couple in the book is going to be. It happens to be a couple that I have been waiting since book one to get together so I am really excited.
