Friday Finds #73.

fridayfinds

Hey!

It’s been three months since I’ve done one of these posts and over the last few months I have added a TON of books to my Goodreads TBR shelves. Today I am sharing ten out of probably hundred of ones I added since my last post. LOL. 😛 I think I am going to start doing this post more frequently again, because I added so many and want to share them.

These are all books that I added to my good reads “TBR” shelf, but do not own (yet) or are not released yet. There won’t be book descriptions this time since I am posting ten books, but I will link them all to Goodreads, so you can check them out! You can see more of my TBR over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend.

Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith

Southernmost by Silas House
The Benefits of Being an Octopus by Ann Braden

She Loves You (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah) by Ann Hood
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White
Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage
The Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson
Any Second by Kevin Emerson

Jeff Zentner has talked about Southernmost so much on social media, so I had to add it to my TBR. If Zentner loves it, then I need to be reading it. So far his recommendations haven’t failed me. A book about the Beatles (She Loves You) and a Frankenstein retelling (The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein), I’m here for it! These other books listed all sound so good and I am really stoked for them all.

Have you added any new books to your TBR? Feel free to link me to your posts if you have one or leave a comment letting me know what new books you added to your TBR.

Thank you for all the comments on my last post. I really needed to vent all of that out and I’m still working on what to do. I’ll reply back soon and catch up with your posts when I get some free time today. 🙂

Hi!

It was a pretty good week. I started Illuminae, which has been on my bookshelf since around release day last year and now I am finally reading it. I did an audiobook reread of An Ember in the Ashes. I still love it and cannot wait to get my hands on A Torch Against the Night! I also finished a couple of other books as well. I didn’t add a whole lot to my Goodreads TBR shelves this week, but I think that is a good thing. I’m already drowning in books that I own that I need to read and books that I don’t own that I want to read and buy, lol.

Here are some of the books that I added to my Goodreads TBR shelves this week. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

Hi 🙂

I’ve been adding so many books to my Goodreads TBR over the last year and a half and I decided to go through them and delete a ton of books that I probably wouldn’t read or that I didn’t really remember what they were about. I also deleted some older books that I still haven’t read and didn’t feel like I would ever get around to them. So although my Goodreads TBR lists are still quite large, they are not as large as they were before lol. By the way, I really need to do this with the books (and e-books) that I own too. I know I have gotten so many that at one time I knew I wanted to read, but now my opinions have changed on some.

Anyway, this is a Friday Finds post. So even though I did get rid of some books off my Goodreads TBR lists, I did add some new ones to the lists. Here are some of the books that I added to my Goodreads TBR shelves this week. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

Have you added any new books to your TBR? Feel free to link me to your posts if you have one.

I recently mentioned that I was moving to a new place with more space. In the move I gained a little reading room (well area since it’s opened) just for myself and all my books! I’m still working on it, especially clearing the clutter off of my bookshelves, but here it is. In a few months or so I plan to also get some new bookshelves. I want shelves that match and I want white shelves. For now this is fine though.

Hi 🙂

I haven’t done a Friday Finds post in almost a month, so I definitely have some books to share with you guys! I think I’ll get right into them! You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

Pull by Anny Riley
The Soultakers by Christina L. Rozelle
Fire in the Stars by Isabella Rogge
The 8th Journal by Nicole Parris
Burning by Danielle Rollins

The Six by Mark Alpert
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
Whisper to Me by Nick Lake
Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty

I am so excited for a new year of reading! I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things and these ten books look and sound like some really awesome reads! They all have such amazing book covers as well, so that is also so exciting! 😀

Have you added any new books to your TBR this week? If so, let me know and link me to your posts!

I finally finished Cress by Marissa Meyer and I drew my first book from my TBR this year! I let myself draw two books and the books chosen were A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and Winger by Andrew Smith. I decided to try them both out and see which one I really want to read. A Game of Thrones is a little intimidating though, so I may end up reading Winger instead. Anyway, so glad it is Friday and now I must get to work!

I hope you have an awesome Friday!

Hi 🙂

It’s Friday again, yay! It was another one of those crazy busy weeks for me at work, but it helped with making the week go by fast. I also didn’t get very much reading done this week (so sad), because Jessica Jones has been taking over my life. This Netflix show is SOO good and I am not really a fan of Marvel, so that tells you something! It also has David Tennant in it and I love that man more than words, so there’s that. Warning: if you ever want to read a book again, do NOT watch Jessica Jones. But no, you totally should go watch Jessica Jones! 😛

Let’s talk about books though! I added tons of books to my TBR this week, but I am going to share with you ten of those tons. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick
Dreamology by Lucy Keating
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
Everland by Wendy Spinale
Black Five by J. Lynn Bailey

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith
Demon Road by Derek Landy
Asleep by Krystal Wade

All of these sound quite amazing and interesting. I am digging the book covers for them all as well! Have you seen A Christmas Story? You know, Red Ryder BB gun, you’ll shoot your eye out kid? Sure you have, it only plays for 24 hours on Christmas. I’m sure you caught a glimpse about a hundred times in your lifetime so far. 😛

What I want for Christmas…

I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle! Ohhhh fuuudge! JUST KIDDING, more like all the money in the world, so I can buy all of these beautiful books.

Have you added any new books to your TBR this week? Let me know and link me to your posts!

I’ll be posting my day two of the Christmas blogging challenge later today. Two blog posts from me in one day, that’s my little early Christmas gift to you! 😛

I hope you have an amazing Friday!

Hey! 🙂 Happy Friday!

I am super stoked that it’s Friday, because that means no work for two days after today! This week was insanely busy and I ended up working late three days out of four of the days. I don’t think I will be working late today though. I just need to get through today and HELLO WEEKEND!

I have some new adds to my Goodreads TBR to share this week! I actually did look for some new books to add this week. I’ve been slacking on the reading and finding new books. Not this week though as far as new adds go! Here is what I have for you guys!

Have you added any new books to your TBR? Let me know and link me to your posts!

Funny story: I was leaving work yesterday and it was pouring down rain. I had my jacket on, but I didn’t have a bag big enough for my book I had with me. So I stopped in the doorway of the office and zipped up my book in my jacket. When I got in the car, the first thing out of the boyfriend’s mouth was “nerd problems”. He seen me trying to zip up my book in my jacket. 😛 He also once called me “Mad-Eye Moody” when one side of my glasses fogged up from going from a cold car to it being super hot outside.

Well, I am off to get some work done. Stay tuned for a picture post sometime over the weekend. I mentioned it in my last post, which is linked over here. It’s kind of an “all-over-the-place” review of Every Day by David Levithan. 😛

I hope you have an great day! ❤

Hi 🙂

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and OMG I may slightly regret eating so much! I was able to go to Thanksgiving at the boyfriend’s parents’ this year and that was nice! We don’t always get to make it over there for holidays or very much at all, because our work schedules are complete opposites, so we don’t have days off together. 😦 It was nice getting to go this year! If you celebrate Thanksgiving in November, I hope you had a great time! If you don’t, I really hope you had an awesome Thursday!

I was able to meet and hangout with Shelbie from Lu-Lu’s Rants & Reads while I was in town visiting the boyfriend’s parents! That was a lot of fun! We had a Target/Starbuck’s date. We both really love Target, so it was perfect meeting up there! I’m glad we’ve been able to become really good friends this year! I definitely can’t wait to see her again soon!

Onto my Friday Finds! I actually have some books to share that I added to my Goodreads TBR this week. I know I haven’t been adding that many books the last few months.

The Return of the Witch by Paula Brackston
Riders by Veronica Rossi
Love and other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey
November 9 by Colleen Hoover
Troublemaker by Leah Remini
The Coming of the Terraphiles by Michael Moorcock

I am so stoked that there is a sequel to The Witch’s Daughter! I loved that book so much and I can’t wait to get my hands on The Return of the Witch. I never liked The King of Queens show, but I love Leah’s reality show on TLC. She and her family are so hilarious and I can’t wait to read her book. The others all sound so good as well! 😀

Have you added any new books to your TBR? Let me know and link me to your posts!

I may do a picture post of other pictures I took while I was gone and over the last month soon. I haven’t shared any in awhile; if you have me on Instagram, then you’ve seen them all. 😛

I hope you have a great weekend! ❤
