T5W: Books I Want To Before 2019

Top 5 Wednesday was originally created and run by Lainey aka gingerreadslainey (Youtube channel) but it is now being run by Sam aka Thoughts on tomes (Youtube channel). Each week there is a different topic. You can check out the groups Goodreads page here for any more information and the future topics. This week’s topic is books you want to read before 2019. I could put all the books currently sitting on my shelves unread but I’ll try to narrow it down to five books. Two of the books are 2019 ARCs I’m excited for and the other three are 2018 releases I’d like to read before the end of the year. Let’s get started.

 

 

 

It’s really not that long till the end of the year now, so I’m hoping to get to all of these books but we’ll see. I’m excited to get to all of these books though. Hopefully I won’t be distracted by other books or video games. I’ve actually managed to read the majority of 2018 book releases that I was excited for, so I’m pretty happy about that. What books do you want to get to before 2019? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

It’s Monday… What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Hi guys, I hope you are all well. As you can already tell, I’m going to be sharing what I’m currently reading as well as what is next up on my TBR. I’ve been in one of those moods where I really want to read but I also can’t decide what I want to pick up first. I would be reading Tombland by C. J. Sansom but I’m away right now and I didn’t want to carry around a big book, so that’s waiting for when I get back. The books I’m actually reading are The Silence of Girls by Pat Barker and The Consuming Fire by John Scalzi, which is the second book in the the Interdependency series. I’ve only just started both of them so I can’t really comment yet but I have high hopes for both of them. Of course I will let you know my full thoughts once I’ve finished them.
Since I’m away for this week I’m taking the chance to read the books that have been sitting on my kindle, waiting to be read. I’d quite like to either start Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel or The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, because they’ve both been on my TBR for a long time. Other books I may read include Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, War Cry by Brian McClellan and Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce.
That’s all I have for today. As I briefly mentioned earlier I’ll be away this week, so if I’m slow to respond to comments that is the reason. What are you guys currently reading? I’d love to know your thoughts if you’ve read any of the books I mentioned. I hope you are all having a wonderful time and I will see you next time.

5 books to read by the end of the year

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. Today I thought I would share five books I want to read by the end of the year. I don’t know whether I’ll actually stick to this list but hopefully it’ll motivate me. I’ve been meaning to read each of these books for a while now so it’s about time that I actually read them. Let’s get started.

 

 

I definitely have more than five books on my TBR but these are high up on my priority list. Hopefully I’ll at least get to a few of these before the year ends. What books do you want to read before the year ends? I hope you are all having wonderful day and I will see you next time.

TTT: Books on my Autumn TBR

TTT-Big2 (1)
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.This weeks topic is books on my Autumn TBR. Pretty self explanatory – I currently have around 30 unread books on my shelves so I have plenty of books to choose from. Let’s get started.

 

 

Hopefully I’ll get to each of these books. I think The Night Circus will be high up on the list as I’ve had it my on kindle for quite a while already. Have you read any of these books? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

Unread Books: Update

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. The other day I went through all of my unread books and so I thought I’d update you guys on what’s sitting on my shelves waiting to be read. These are all of the physical books, as well as the ebooks, however I haven’t included any ebooks I currently have on my Netgalley to read list. Let’s get started.

 

 

 

Kindle:

 

 

Basically I’ve got a few books to read :). I would like to think I’m going to read a lot of these before buying more books, but I can’t promise anything. Have you read any of these books? Any books you think I need to pick up right away? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

We’re roughly halfway through July now so I thought I’d update you guys on what I’m reading right now. So far I’ve managed to read 4 books which I’m pretty happy with. I’ve actually just started reading two books. Firstly I started The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel, which is the first book in six book series Earth’s Children. Unless I’m mistaken, this is a historical fiction series set in a prehistoric Europe. I’m not very far in so I can’t comment on it yet but obviously I’ll have a mini review for you guys in my wrap at the end of the month. The second book I’m reading is The Hyena and the Hawk by Adrian Tchaikovsky, which is the third and final book in the Echoes of the Fall trilogy. I am so excited to see how this concludes. I’ve loved the first two books so I have high hopes for this book.
Before I finish this post, I thought I’d share some books on my TBR for the rest of the month. These include The Birdcage Walk by Helen Dunmore, City of Lies by Sam Hawke, Legend by David Gemmell, Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie, Circe by Madeleine Miller and Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce. Obviously I won’t get to all of these but I’m hoping to read at least a few of them.

 

That’s it for today. Obviously I’ll let you know what I think of each book in my wrap up at the end of the month. What are you currently reading? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

TBR: Female Authors

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. So I was wondering what to post about and after realising that the majority of books I’ve read so far this year are written by men, I thought I’d share some books I want to read by women. Of the 29 authors I’ve read so far this year, only 9 of them are women, so I’ve got ten women authors on my TBR to share with you guys. The first five are new to me and the other five are authors I’ve already read one or more of their books, if that makes sense. Let’s get started.

 

 

That’s it for today. There are more female authors I could share but I thought 10 would be a good number to share. Have you guys read any books by these authors? Let me know if you have any recommendations for me. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
