To Be Read in October 2018

This is my 5th month doing this and so far I think I am doing okay some months are a hit or miss but over all I think its going good. Some months don’t go according to plan since I do take part in blog tours and have those books to read but over all I am pleased with how this is going.

So, for October  I am aiming to read the following books:

  1. The Fear of Falling by Amanda Cowen (this is for a upcoming blog tour)
  2. The Reckless Club by Beth Vrabel (publisher sent)
  3. The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner (publisher sent)
  4. The President is Missing by Bill Clinton & James Patterson (borrowed from my sister)
  5. Me and Me by Alice Kuipers (upcoming blog tour)
  6. Billionaire Wolf for Christmas by Terry Spear (upcoming blog tour)
  7. Because You’re the Love of My Life by Sarah Kleck (blog tour)

This month my TBR as you can see is mostly books that I have to review for blog tours and what publishers have sent me. This month instead of picking three books like I did last month from my own shelves it will be replaced with ARCtober Reading Challenge  that I am taking part in.

Have you read any of these?

 

Update/ To Be Read In September 2018

Wow its hard to believe that its already the end of September and I am doing my wrap up post for the month already, where did the time go?

I realize as I was doing this post initially that I had a huge pile of books to conquer this month but thankfully two of those books were already ones that were started in August and I finished earlier in the month.

  1. The House of 1,000 Eyes (blog tour)
  2. The Ghost Road (blog tour)
  3. Love and Other Secrets by Christina Madelski (blog tour)
  4. All The Things That Could Go Wrong by Stewart Foster (currently reading this still) 
  5. Rule by Ellen Goodlett
  6. The Exes’ Revenge by Jo Jakeman
  7. Two Summers by Aimee Friedman
  8. Girl Stole by April Henry
  9. The Rock Star in Seat 3A by Jill Kargman
  10. An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena
  11. Vox by Christina Dalcher

I didn’t get to make a huge dent  in the TBR list I made for September but as the month progressed I had signed up for some blog tours so I ended up having to read the following books this month (all these books are already reviewed on my blog):

Hooked On A PhoenixMore Than A PhoenixApollo Is Mine (Harem of the Gods Book 1)

  • Hooked on a Phoenix by Ashlyn Chase was actually a book I had on my TBR and I needed to read this so that I could read More Than a Phoenix.
  • Apollo is Mine by Mila Young

The Forgotten Royal: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Annabelle's Harem Book 1)The Forsaken Royal: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Annabelle's Harem Book 2)The Fearless Royal: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Annabelle's Harem Book 3)

The Forgotten Royal (#1), the Forsaken Royal (#2) and The Fearless Royal (#3) by Anna Hill

 

A Heart in a Body in the World

A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti will be reviewed tomorrow.

So in the grand scheme of things I did get a lot of books read this month,  just not as many off my TBR list as planned. Going into October I will be bringing  All The Things That Could Go Wrong, Rule, The Exes’ Revenge and Vox over into October to read for the ARCtober Reading Challenge. I have put the other two books back into my TBR jar for a future reading date.

How did you do this month?

To Be Read in September 2018

This is my fourth month doing this and so far I think I am doing okay but its hard because I  am really not good with having a set  TBR list because half the time I tend to be a picky reader or I don’t really like  the books I have picked out half way through the month.

So what I plan on doing is picking a handful of books each month that I want to read and if I read them then that is good and no pressure if I don’t read them. The ones I don’t read I will put on paper and put in my TBR jar to pick when I am stuck for something to read.

So, for September  I am aiming to read the following books:

  1. The House of 1,000 Eyes (blog tour)
  2. The Ghost Road (blog tour)
  3. Love and Other Secrets by Christina Madelski (blog tour)(currently reading this about 10% into it)
  4. All The Things That Could Go Wrong by Stewart Foster
  5. Rule by Ellen Goodlett
  6. The Exes’ Revenge by Jo Jakeman
  7. Two Summers by Aimee Friedman
  8. The Rock Star in Seat 3A by Jill Kargman
  9. Girl, Stolen by April Henry
  10. An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena ( I actually finished this Sept 2nd)
  11. Vox by Christina Dalcher (currently reading this)

To break down the list, the first three are for blog tours that I have coming up this month, the next three are review books for the month and then the next three books are books I have selected from shelves and this is my attempt to read more of my own books so the three books are  books: bought this year, a stand alone and a first book in a series and finally the last two are books I was currently reading at the end of August.

What are you reading this month?

Update/ To Be Read In August 2018

It’s really hard to believe that this is the end of August. Where did the month go? Where did the summer go? Michael will be starting grade 10 this week so its been a busy week of getting ready for that.

Earlier this month I shared what books I had planned for my TBR that I wanted to read this month and now its the end of the month so I thought I would share my progress with you.

  1. The Girl On The Camera by Morgan Dunn-Campbell (blog tour)
  2. The Right Fit by Daphne Dubots (blog tour)
  3. Grace and Fury by  Tracy Banghart (blog tour)
  4. The Shortest Way Home by Miriam Parker (will need to buy this)
  5. Believe Me by J.P. Delaney (will need to buy this)
  6. An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena (currently reading this as a physical book)
  7. Unleashed by Bella Jacobs (blog tour)
  8. Fresh Ink (blog tour)
  9. Counting on you by Laura Chapman
  10. Vox by Christina Dalcher (currently reading this on my iPad)

As you can see I managed  to read 8 books off my selected TBR this month. I also read:

Sacking The QuarterbackBodyguard: An Under Covers Story

The Curvy Tree: A Tale From The Land Of StoriesThe Sandman and the War of DreamsThe Man in the Moon

I also managed to read Monster Mayhem that was sent to me earlier this week. (that haul will be shown next month since I have already posted my haul for August)

Monster Mayhem

 

This month I read 14 /16 books. It feels good to read most of my TBR books I selected this month. What did you read this month?

I am not quite sure how well this will work out but I thought I would start to share what I plan on reading in the month.

This is my third month doing this and so far I think I am doing okay but its hard because I  am really not good with having a set  TBR list because half the time I tend to be a picky reader or I don’t really like  the books I have picked out half way through the month.

So what I plan on doing is picking a handful of books each month that I want to read and if I read them then that is good and no pressure if I don’t read them. The ones I don’t read I will put on paper and put in my TBR jar to pick when I am stuck for something to read.

Update/ To Be Read in July 2018

Its hard to believe its the end of July already over. Where did the time go?

Earlier this month I shared what books I wanted to read this month and I thought I would share the progress I made on that list:

  • To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
  • P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han
  • Always and Forever Laura Jean by Jenny Han
  • Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart
  • Love Hate and other Filters by Samira Ahmed
  • Small Town Rumors by Carolyn Brown
  • International Guy Volume 1 by Audrey Carlan
  • Second Time Around by Nancy Herkness
  • Half Empty by Catherine Bybee

As you can see I had quite the list to read this month and out of 9 books I read 2/9, but  I did read a few books that weren’t on the above list and they were:

  • Heartwood Hotel: A True Home
  • Heartwood Hotel: The Greatest Gift
  • Heartwood Hotel: Better Together
  • Heartwood Hotel: Home Again

So this month was actually pretty good I read  6/13

 

To Be Read In…. July 2018

I am not quite sure how well this will work out but I thought I would start to share what I plan on reading in the month. Do you do this on your blog or on any other social media sites?

If you know me in real life you would know that I am really not good with a TBR pile of books beside me because half the time I tend to be a picky reader or I don’t really like  the books I have picked out half way through the month. So what I plan on doing is picking a handful of books each month that I want to read and if I read them then that is good and no pressure if I don’t read them. The ones I don’t read I will put on paper and put in my TBR jar to pick when I am stuck for something to read.

So, for July  I am aiming to read the following books:

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To A…P.S. I Still Love YouAlways and Forever, Lara Jean

Grace And FuryLove, Hate And Other Filters

The following reads are for blog tours that I am taking part in this month:

International Guy: Paris, New York, CopenhagenSecond Time AroundHalf EmptySmall Town Rumors

What do you plan on reading this month?
