August TBR.



My track record with monthly TBRs is never good, but I actually feel confident with my book choices for my TBR this month. I feel like it has a mix of a lot of different things, so I think it should be fairly easy to stick to it. Crossing my fingers though, because I swear I abandon my list every month or only read a couple from the list. Onto the books that I chose for my TBR…


It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover – I’m already almost halfway through it and I really like it so far. I already knew immediately that I would be starting it on release day (yesterday) and that’s exactly what I did!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling – I want to read this right away, because I know everyone is reading it right now and I want to try not to get spoiled. The best solution to that is to just read the book as soon as possible.

Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige – I am so stoked that I was approved by Netgalley to read the eARC of Stealing Snow. I really enjoyed the Dorothy Must Die series so far, so I am excited to read Danielle’s new book!

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardguo – I previously mentioned how I made a list of series that I started and haven’t finished or caught up to the most current book in the series. I want to try to incorporate them into my reading the rest of the year, so I can try to finish and get caught up. So this month I am going to read Ruin and Rising.

With Malice by Eileen Cook – I’ve been seeing this book around a lot and I am dying to read it, so I couldn’t resist finally getting myself a copy. I am so stoked to read it. I’ve seen a lot of good things about it.

I am hoping that I can get through all of these books and even a few more. I feel extremely guilty with this TBR, because they are all new purchases (minus Stealing Snow and Ruin and Rising). I’m really trying to stick to the books that I own and stop buying books…it’s so difficult though, lol. I am going to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure this month (next weekend) to go to Harry Potter world! I am so stoked! I have about a three hour car ride there, so I should hopefully get in some reading on the way there and back! 😀

What is on your August TBR? Have you read any of these?

July|| 2016 read my books challenge.



I’ve been taking part in Maren’s (The Worn Bookmark) read my books challenge over on her blog, where I read the books that I already own versus only new books. I made a TBR jar of all the books I own (NOT including books I bought and will buy in 2016). My goal is to read 30 of my already owned books from that TBR jar aside from recent purchases.

# Books read in July: 5
# Books read year to date: 12/30


My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul – REVIEW.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Shattering Glass by Gail Giles
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have been doing really bad with this reading challenge this year, but in July I actually did really good! I was able to read five books toward this challenge. One (To Kill a Mockingbird) I started myself and finished it as an audiobook. I actually enjoyed all five of these books, so that was a huge plus as well! You can see more books in read in July in my recap post linked below. 🙂
