Year-a-thon TBR

The beginning of the April Year-a-thon is here and that means we start reading the Highest and Lowest rated books on your Goodreads TBR. So these are the two books I’ll be picking up this week.

‘Empress of A Thousand Skies’ by Rhoda Belleza is the lowest rated book on my Goodreads TBR so I will be picking that up, along with ‘Heartstopper: Volume 3’ by Alice Oseman which is my highest rated book.

I’m really looking forward to reading both and I’m a little glad that this challenge is making me prioratise books that may not of been on the forefront of my TBR.

March TBR

March is upon us which means time to create another TBR for the new month. This Month the Year-a-thon challenge is to ‘link the book’ I’ve found a weak connection between some of these reads.

In March I plan to read 12 booksm ,most of which are carry overs from February – and by most I mean 6 – and didn’t quite finish. That being said I am hoping to continue reading Eclipse; The Secret History; After; Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; Wild at Heart and The Complete Poems of Emily Dickenson. I also hope to pick up Check Please: Volume 1; Breaking Dawn; Waiting For Spring: Volume 3; Lovely War; Starsight; The Poppy War; Kiki’s Delivery Service: Volume 3 ; Come Tumbling Down and Heartstopper: Volume 3.

Year-a-thon: February TBR

February’s Year-a-thon time has come around (umm what?!, how?!) and that means a new reading challenge for the week.

Finish that book/series

I’ve got a pretty chill TBR for this one. I plan to finish 2 books I am currently reading as well as reading Supernova to complete the Renegades series.

What are you reading for the February Year-a-thon?

Year-a-thon: January

Today marks the beginning of the year-a-thon! The theme for January’s week if the readathon is to choose a colour and only read books with that colour on the cover. I’ve decided to go with….

BLACK

I know thats a really easy colour because a lot of books have black on the cover however I wanted to continue the books I had started in the last couple of days. My current TBR for the Challenge looks kind of like this:

So I know thats not a lot of books however it takes me AGES to read ‘The Complete Poems of Emily Dickenson’, it just takes my brain longer then usual to work out what they are saying and I’ve already been working on it for a couple months and I’m still only onto her second series.

Both ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ and ‘New Moon’ are rereads for me. I’m already Listening to the Philosopher’s Stone Audiobook and have just started ‘This is where it Ends’ and will pick up ‘New Moon’ once I’ve finished that because *controversial* I don’t like the Twilight saga audiobooks.

If we get through all of these in the week I have no idea what I will pick up but we will see how I go with these.

are you participating in the Year-a-thon?

January 2020 TBR

2020 is here! I want to begin the new year and decade off on the right note and get some serious reading done while I still have the time. Here is what I’m looking at reading in January.

Learn More

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickenson Skyward Chasing River Forever, Interrupted Kingdom of Ash Legacy Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone The Pretenders The Tyrant’s Tomb The Odyssey: A Graphic Novel This is Where it Ends New Moon

I think I’ve got a pretty broad range of books for the month, which should mean that there will constantly be something on my TBR that I am eager to pick up… Fingers crossed!

What are your January reading plans?

December TBR

My TBR for December is a little less set in stone than I usually like. Not only am I still participating in the Triwizard Tournament as well as starting the Winter Magical Readathon hosted by Gee from BookRoast.

In the Winter Magical Readathon we are given a prompt as well finish the previous one. Each prompt is based on how we answer a series of questions based on scenarios in the second book. Its kinda really fun!

Anyway, with that it means that my TBR can’t really be 100% set as a prompt may come up that none of my books fit into, however here’s what I plan to read this month around all the unpredictability.

November TBR

I know this is super late to post however, I still wanted to post it, just to have a record of my reading plans for the month of November.

I know there are a lot of books there, however I am participating in the Triwzard Tournament readathon which requires a few books so most are for that.

What are your November reading plans?

When West McCray―a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America―overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.

Ninth House
book #1 in the Alex Stern Series
by Leigh Bardugo

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.

Loki: Where Mischief Lies
by Makenzi Lee

This is the first of three young adult novels from New York Times best-selling author Mackenzi Lee that explores the untapped potential and duality of heroism of popular characters in the Marvel Universe.

Before the days of going toe-to-toe with the Avengers, a younger Loki is desperate to prove himself heroic and capable, while it seems everyone around him suspects him of inevitable villainy and depravity . . . except for Amora. Asgard’s resident sorceress-in-training feels like a kindred spirit-someone who values magic and knowledge, who might even see the best in him.

But when Loki and Amora cause the destruction of one of Asgard’s most prized possessions, Amora is banished to Earth, where her powers will slowly and excruciatingly fade to nothing. Without the only person who ever looked at his magic as a gift instead of a threat, Loki slips further into anguish and the shadow of his universally adored brother, Thor.

When Asgardian magic is detected in relation to a string of mysterious murders on Earth, Odin sends Loki to investigate. As he descends upon nineteenth-century London, Loki embarks on a journey that leads him to more than just a murder suspect, putting him on a path to discover the source of his power-and who he’s meant to be.
