May TBR | 2017

I’ve been really struggling lately with how to structure my wrap ups and tbrs because they’ve been feeling really flat and formulaic but I think I’m finally happy with them!

Also this month there is a readthon called the A-ZReadathon where basically you’re meant to read books and by the end of the month you will have read (via the title) the entire alphabet. I’m not sure if I will actually be participating but I thought I would mention it so you guys know about it!

Last month I meant to start The Name of The Star but due to my schedule I just never got to it, I do still want to read it though, so I’m really hoping I can give it a go.

And then there’s Dreadnought – the book I’ve been reading for what feels like years – in actuality, however it’s only been a couple of months. I have been reading Dreadnougt for only just over a month but I’m reading it pretty slowly because I’ve only been reading it at school.

The Marvels by Brian Selznick

Last year I read two of Brian Selznickโ€™s novels and I really enjoyed the way they were told. I find the use of half illustrations and half text to be a really interesting story telling technique, they really help to bring the story to life.

The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) byย Rob Thomas

Last month I became slightly obsessed with the Veronica Mars tv series. So as soon as I heard there were books I jumped at the chance to get them. The books are set after the movie (which was amazing, my otp sailed and I am still riding the high) which I watched a couple of weeks ago, so I am excited to finally be up to date with Veronica Mars.

Lumberjanes, Vol. 6: Sink or Swimย by Shannon Watters & Noelle Stevenson

This came out late last month so Iโ€™m hoping Iโ€™ll be able to get ahold of it at my local library. Iโ€™m excited to continue this series, the characters are all great and Iโ€™ve yet to be let down by the trades.


Reviews I Want To Write:

Strange The Dreamer, Waking Gods & Our Own Private Universe

Strange the Dreamerย ย Waking Gods (Themis Files, #2)ย ย Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley

I read all three of these last month and because they were all arcs I do have to review them. I don’t really enjoy writing reviews but these are some pretty popular books and I figure why not just add to the massive piles of reviews already on the internet.

      1. I don’t have a defined TBR but I actually want to read a lot!!haha The Circle and The hanmaid’s tale so that I can binge watch the show and movie, also a couple of buddy reads for Speak and Vengeance Road an some arcs… Oh and I also have to finish The Darkest Minds trilogy!!haha Let’s see if I get to do all that…hehe

    1. Honestly I wasn’t the biggest fan of how her Daughter of Smoke and Bine trilogy ended so I was going into this with an opem mind. I probably wouldn’t have read this if I hadn’t received an arc.

      I LOVED the first part of this, I really appreciate Lazlo as a character. However, as the romance started to incorporate into the story I sort of stopped enjoying it, it started to dominate the story and become too overwhelming. I think I’ll still pick up the next book though, so it can’t have been all bad.
