July Wrap-Up and August TBR

I’m very proud to say that I managed to read at least one book by every author I had books signed by at YALC! Saying that, July was still definitely a slow month for me and I’m excited for keeping more on top of my blog and TBR in August. Hopefully doing the Magical Readathon will help with that!

June Wrap-Up and July TBR

Hi all! Another month has passed and now I have under a month to read as much as I can on my YALC TBR, wish me luck 🙂 Unfortunately I didn’t manage to read as much in June, I got in a few small slumps and I started a new job, but I did still read 6!

May Wrap-Up and June TBR

I managed to read 10 books in May and finally finished the Morganville series! I don’t think it would have been possible without being away on holiday, and reading almost a book a day.

Books I Bought in May

Emergency Contact – Mary H.K. Choi
Finale – Stephanie Garber
Killer T – Robert Muchamore
Arctic Zoo – Robert Muchamore

I’d love to say these are the only books I bought, but I’m actually just super behind on my Stacking the Shelves posts! I usually keep track of my book buying on those posts, but I ended up buying a lot in one go so they’ll slowly trickle out over the next month or so 🙂

Books I Want to Read in June

Meet Cute – Various authors
Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan
Two Can Keep a Secret – Karen McManus
Noughts and Crosses – Malorie Blackman
The Last Namsara – Kirsten Ciccarelli

I basically want to get through as many books as I can for YALC, which as at the end of July. If I manage to get through them super quick then I should be able to pick up some more!

April Wrap-Up and May TBR

Wow, after reading only 3 books in March, I read 9 books in April! And moved house. Granted, these books have been shorter and easier reads, but I’m still super proud of myself for such a lot of reading.

Dumplin’ was definitely my favourite book of the month, and Midnight Alley was my least favourite.

Books I Bought in April

Heartstopper – Alice Oseman
The Quiet at the End of the World – Lauren James
The Red Scrolls of Magic – Cassandra Clare

Considering I came out of a big book ban, I’m glad I only bought these 3 books!

Books I Want to Read in May

I’d honestly just be really happy if I finished the Morganville series! I have 7 books left and a short story collection, so it could be a push but I think I might be able to do it.

March Wrap-Up and April TBR

Happy April! I can’t believe I only read 3 books in March, but I’m actually not too sad about it. In total I read almost 2500 pages and that’s still a huge amount! I also managed my first classic in a long time and got caught up with all Cassandra Clare books so both of those are massive achievements.

All of these are super close, but my favourite has to be East of Eden and I guess that makes my least favourite Lord of Shadows!

Books I Received in March

928 Miles from Home – Kim Slater
Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh

Thank you to Chloe for these books! I’ve still been on a book-ban, but I should be done with it very soon so I’m sure April will be a busier month for me with buying books :p

Books I Want to Read in April

Dumplin’ – Julie Murphy
On the Come Up – Angie Thomas
Heartstopper – Alice Oseman

I’m definitely going to just read what I fancy reading, but I’d love to pick up these! I’ve already read all of Heartstopperonline, but when I get volume one in paperback I’d like to give it a re-read 🙂

My least favourite book of the month was My True Love Gave to Me and my favourite was City of  Glass!

Books I Bought in January

Harry Potter Page to Screen – Bob McCabe
King of Scars – Leigh Bardugo

I’ve been on a book-buying ban since early December and it’s actually going really well! The Harry Potter Page to Screen book was a Christmas present and King of Scars was a preorder from back in November – so I’m still sticking to the ban 😉

Books I Want to Read in February

King of Scars – Leigh Bardugo
Tales of the Shadowhunter Academy – Cassandra Clare
Lady Midnight (#1) – Cassandra Clare
Lord of Shadows (#2) – Cassandra Clare
Queen of Air and Darkness (#3) – Cassandra Clare

I’m pretty serious about my February TBR as I’m meeting Cassandra Clare late in the month and I really want to read as many of her books as possible before then.
