A to Z of TBR: Y & Z

My final post on the A to Z of TBR… YAY! I can’t believe I actually made it to the end!

Ok, no preamble this time! Lets get straight into it.

For ‘Y’ I have ‘York: The Shadow Cipher’ By Laura Ruby. I honestly have no idea why I haven’t picked this one up because it sounds super interesting and definitely something that I’d enjoy. Hopefully I can pick it up soon.

So the final book in this A to Z of TBR is the book for ‘Z’ which I only have one for and that is ‘Zenith’ By Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings.

I’m not sure how I feel about this one and am nervous to pick it up seeing as its gotten a lot of mixed reviews. I still hope to get to it and form my own opinion on it.

We finally made it to the end! I can’t believe it. Lets hope I don’t need to do another one of these any time soon and I keep up with reading books I own before purchasing to many more!

What book has just been siting on your TBR forever?

A to Z of TBR: U,V,W &X

My goal is to complete the A to Z of TBR’s before the end of the year because I am so close! 

If you have’t read any of my other posts in this series its pretty much about having a look at books you have in your TBR that you keep overlooking and reminding yourself they are there so you read them!

For ‘U’ I don’t have too many books, but a book I do have ‘The Unexpected Everything’ By Morgan Matson. This is one that I really really do want to read. I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet!

For ‘V’ I found ‘Vengeful’ By V.E. Schwab. I still haven’t read ‘Vicious‘ but I figure by reminding myself about ‘Vengeful’ will make me read ‘Vicious‘.

‘W’ we have ‘Warcross’ By Marie Lu. This is a book I’ve had for ages and I just haven’t picked it up but I want to because I’ve heard so many great thing about it!

So I couldn’t find any books on my shelf or in my Goodreads TBR that started with ‘X’ so I don’t have a book for this one unfortunately.

What are some books hiding in your TBR?

A to Z of TBR: Q, R, S & T

I started this a while ago after reading a post on Book Please‘s Blog.  I have been meaning to continue this series but completely forgot about it. So what better time than during Blogmas? 


For ‘Q’ I have ‘The Queen’s Rising’ by Rebecca Ross. This is one I’ve been wanting to get to for ages but then I start a new series and BAM its back down the TBR list. This is one I really want to get to in the beginning of 2019.

For ‘R’ I have ‘Reign the Earth’ By A.C. Gaughen. This is one I can’t believe I didn’t get to in 2018. Its definitely on the early 2019 list. It seems like such a great read. 

For ‘S’ ‘Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor is at the top of the list. I really want to get to this one.

Finally for ‘T’ I have ‘Tower of Dawn’ By Sarah J. Maas. I mean I still need to read all the books before this one to get to it, but thats what I’ll work on doing. 

What does you TBR deep dive look like?

A to Z of TBR: I, J, K & L

I started this a while ago after reading a post on Book Please‘s Blog.  I love the idea of staying accountable to read the books I want to and say I will read.

Lets get into it!

‘Ice Wolves’ By Amie Kaufman
Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragonsare sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.
So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.
In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shapeshifting force of all.

I don’t actually have any books on my physical TBR shelf that start with a J

Same goes for K, there is one book I still want to get called ‘Keeper’ that I want to read,  but I don’t have it yet.

‘The Library of Fates’ By Aditi Khorana
No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn’t enough.

The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.

Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?

A to Z of TBR: E, F, G & H

I started this a while ago after reading a post on Book Please‘s Blog.  I have been meaning to continue this series but completely forgot about it.

From the first post in this series (A, B, C & D) I ended up reading one of the books ‘The Cruel Prince’ By Holly Black and reviewing it.

I am hoping this will encourage me to read more of the books I have before I buy more… maybe.

‘Everless’ By Sara Holland
IMG_0236In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.
But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

‘Furthermore’ By Tahereh Mafi
IMG_0092Alice Alexis Queensmeadow 12 rates three things most important: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and colour, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. Father disappeared from Ferenwood with only a ruler, almost three years ago. But she will have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is Oliver whose own magic is based in lies and deceit. Alice must first find herself—and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

‘The Gender Secret’ By Bella Forrest
img_0756.jpgGliding over the treacherous Green in a shaky aircraft that she has no idea how to land, Violet Bates is still in shock. The harrowing events of the previous night play over in her mind as she asks herself question after question.
Why did Lee Desmond Bertrand behave the way he did?
What is the truth about the mysterious silver egg stowed beneath her seat?
What happened to Viggo and where is her brother? Is either of them still alive?
When Violet manages to reach the toxic ground alive, she has landed in a world of unimaginable danger. She has barely time to catch her breath before she is sucked into a perilous journey at breakneck speed – to uncover secrets guarded for centuries and find the only two people that matter.

‘Horizon’ By Scott Westerfeld
IMG_0119When a plane crash-lands in the arctic, eight young survivors step from the wreckage expecting to see nothing but ice and snow. Instead they find themselves lost in a strange jungle with no way to get home and little hope of rescue.
Food is running out. Water is scarce. And the jungle is full of threats unlike anything the survivors have ever seen before — from razor-beaked shredder birds to carnivorous vines and much, much worse.
With danger at every turn, these eight kids must learn to work together to survive. But cliques and rivalries threaten to tear them apart. And not everyone will make it out of the jungle alive.
