A POST IN WHICH I SHOW YOU EVERY BOOK I OWN AND HAVEN’T READ YET // I blame you, Emma

This post is entirely Emma’s fault, she pulled me in with her charm and her lists and now I’m here making lists and being a great deal happier. I hope you don’t mind, Emma, but I did use your book categories!

So, here it is guys, my official physical tbr, as of today, Tuesday the 25th of April. I am pretty excited to finally see all of my physical tbr in list form (you guys, I LOVE lists). I am hoping that I will use this as a motivator to really knock some of these books of my tbr by the end of the year. s you’ll see, this post is quite long but that’s only because I’ve included my kindle and audiobook tbrs. 

EDIT: I do plan on unhauling some of the books off of my physical tbr by the end of the year (which I have planned posts for) so I have not included them in this list, though if you’re curious as to what they are I’d be happy to tell you.

TO READ OR NOT TO READ #3 THE COMICS EDITION

Hey guys, I’ve decided that I really enjoy writing these posts so I will try to continue the series every month or two if you guys are into that idea. But, today I thought I would change it up a bit and go through all the comics on my tbr because I know a small group of you enjoy reading them too.

If there are any other tbr genres you’d like me to go through in this style I would love to hear your suggestions!

ON HOLD I’m still keeping it on my tbr, but I think I’ll wait to read it for a while.

NEXT UP This is going on the top of my next reads pile.

TO READ IMMEDIATELYThis will be one of the next three books I pick up.

UNDETERMINED – I’m still not sure if I’ll read this one and appreciate your guys’ opinions.

Giant Days, Vol. 1 (Giant Days, #1)

GIANT DAYS VOLUME 1

GOODREADS LINK

Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

When our heroes are accidentally swallowed by Jumbonox the Giganormous, their only hope is a society of sentient macro-microorganisms…who, by no fault of their own, might just be the deadliest disease in the universe! And on the hauntingly beautiful world of Inkandesha, the spacefaring couple might completely lose themselves! But will they finally be torn apart by the vengeful Warrior Zero – or a certain former master? Because there’s only one reason the Silver Surfer would ever serve Galactus again…if the universe itself hung in the balance! The lives of Norrin and Dawn will never be the same!

Strap in, True Believer, you’ve never seen a Nova book like this before! Action meets romance as Sam goes on a date with the new girl in school, while Rich reconnects with an old flame: the Guardian of the Galaxy called Gamora!

Iron Man is his friend and mentor — but that doesn’t mean he and Nova see eyehole-to-eyehole. Come to think of it, Sam’s no fan of Captain Marvel’s stance, either. Awkward! One of the most powerful kids in the galaxy has a lot to learn about himself. Stuck between two sides of a fight he wants no part of, Sam will be forced to make a tough choice. Can he continue as Nova, or is it time to hang up the helmet?

But what’s a super-powered teenager to do when she’s looking for a little personal fulfilment? She goes to college! America just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first and shut down a pesky alien cult that’s begun worshipping her exploits before work can begin. Then she can get on with her first assignment: a field trip to the front lines of World War II – with Captain America as her wingman!

TO READ OR NOT TO READ #2

Hey guys, I’m back with another To Read or Not To Read post. I really enjoyed writing my last one so I thought I would continue it as a series, much in the way Down The TBR Hole has been, though less frequently I’m sure.

Today I will be talking about a more diverse range of books than I did last month: with some YA as well as some Adult and Fem Fiction!

TERMS:

ON HOLD I’m still keeping it on my tbr, but I think I’ll wait to read it for a while.

NEXT UP This is going on the top of my next reads pile.

TO READ IMMEDIATELYThis will be one of the next three books I pick up.

The Rook (The Checquy Files, #1)

THE ROOK – DANIEL O’MALLEY

GOODREADS LINK

“The body you are wearing used to be mine.” So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

Unearthed (Unearthed, #1)

UNEARTHED – AMIE KAUFMAN & MEAGAN SPOONER

GOODREADS LINK

When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study… as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

This Is Where I Leave You

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU – JONATHON TROPPER

GOODREADS LINK

A riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind—whether we like it or not.

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman family—including Judd’s mother, brothers, and sister—have been together in years. Conspicuously absent: Judd’s wife, Jen, whose fourteen-month affair with Judd’s radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.

Simultaneously mourning the death of his father and the demise of his marriage, Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch’s dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together. In the same house. Like a family.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

Meddling Kids

MEDDLING KIDS – EDGAR CANTERO

GOODREADS LINK

1990. The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years.

The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

The Power

THE POWER – NAOMI ALDERMAN

GOODREADS LINK

In THE POWER, the world is a recognizable place: there’s a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power–they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

Wild Beauty

WILD BEAUTY – ANNA-MARIE MCLEMORE

GOODREADS LINK

Love grows such strange things.

For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.

The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

Sleeping Beauties

SLEEPING BEAUTIES – STEPHEN KING & OWEN KING

GOODREADS LINK

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain?

VERDICT: TO READ IMMEDIATELY

The Hazel Wood

THE HAZEL WOOD – MELISSA ALBERT

GOODREADS LINK

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the strange bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate – the Hazel Wood – Alice learns how bad her luck can really get. Her mother is stolen away – by a figure who claims to come from the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: STAY AWAY FROM THE HAZEL WOOD.

To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began . . .

VERDICT: TO READ IMMEDIATELY

Zenith (The Androma Saga #1)

ZENITH – SASHA ALSBERG & LINDSAY CUMMINGS

GOODREADS LINK

Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she’s just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.
But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder’s all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi’s past.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.

Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3)

BENEATH THE SUGAR SKY – SEANAN MCGUIRE

GOODREADS LINK

Beneath the Sugar Sky returns to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the “real” world.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons, #2)

BATMAN: NIGHTWALKER

GOODREADS LINK

Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals…

WHAT BOOKS ARE ON YOUR TBR?

FRIDGES Agoodreadsiconinstagramiconpinteresticontumblricontwittericon

 

What’s On My TBR? | 11.11.2016

What’s On My TBR? #1

Like most book lovers or book bloggers I have a Goodreads. I wanted to write a post about my current TBR on Goodreads but there are currently over 200 books on the list. Whoops. I decided it would be easier and more interesting if I posted about what some of the most recent additions to my list are and why I added them. I don’t own any of these books but Christmas is coming up and if I don’t end up buying them, I am a big library user anyway.

What Am I Currently Reading?

One Man Guy

I am currently reading One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva. I’ve known about this book for years but ended up taking it off my tbr last year because I didn’t think I would read it. But, I saw it at the library last month and figured, if it’s there why not read it?

TBR| What Am I Excited About?

Jughead Volume 1 by Chip Zdarsky, Erica Henderson (Illustrations)

I’ve never read an Archie comic but I’ve heard good things about this one so I figured it would be a good place to start. Jughead Jones seems like a weird and quirky guy and I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble he gets into!

Beast by Brie Spangler

A transgender, modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast? Beauty and the Beast is my favourite movie of all time and I’ve never read a book with a trans character so I figured this would be a great place to start. I’ve heard that this book goes really deep into transphobia and doesn’t skip over the gritty bits. This sounds like an important book and I can’t wait to read it.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows Duology #1) by Leigh  Bardugo

I think almost everyone in the bookish community knows about this duology, and yet I still haven’t picked it up. I plan on reading the Grisha trilogy before reading this duology so I have some better knowledge of the world. I’ve heard amazing things so all I can hope is that I’m not let down.

The Wise Man’s Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle #2) by Patrick Rothfuss

I recently finished book one on this trilogy and I really enjoyed it. Naturally, I can’t wait to read the next book.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan

I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to pick up this trilogy but the other day I was binge watching booktube and I found out that there’s a deaf character, which has pushed this to the top of my TBR list. Plus, it’s Rick Riordan, I have to read it, right?

The Flash Volume 6: Out of Time by Robert Venditti (Goodreads Author), Van Jensen (Goodreads Author), Brett Booth (Illustrations)

I have only read volume 1-5 in this series and I honestly love it. This series is brilliant, definitely recommend for fans of the show!

TBR | What’s New?

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

A new Marissa Meyer novel? Duh, I’m gonna read it.

Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham

I am a massive Gilmore Girls, it’s honestly ridiculous. The audiobook for this is being released at the end of the month, after the revival is released on Netflix. I think this will be a perfect way to close off the show. I love Lauren Graham, she has an amazing voice and her personality is goals, so naturally I am hyped for this!

Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2) by Rick Riordan

I’ve not read the first novel but like I said before this trilogy is right up the top of my list.

TBR | Get Hyped!

America Volume 1 by Jamie McKelvie (Artist), Matt Wilson (Colorist)

I read Young Avenger Volume 1 at the start of the year and fell in love with the characters so when I heard they were making a new series with America I immediately added it to my evergrowing TBR.

Down Among the Sticks and Stones by Seanon Macguire

I read Every Heart A Doorway a few months ago and devoured it, the characters were amazing and unique and the concept was awesome so naturally I will be picking up book 2 next year!
