Books that have been on my TBR FOREVER!

Hello everyone! I thought it would be a fun idea to share with you guys some of the books that have been on my TBR for AGES, in hopes that it will encourage me to pick them up sooner rather than later!

There are probably a whole lot on here that will shock you too 😂  Just as a side note (so you guys don’t hate me too much 😉) I’m definitely a mood reader, so my interests in certain books switch around very quickly! So I’ve probably started some of these, but I won’t force myself to finish reading it if I don’t feel like it!


THE LOST HERO by Rick Riordan 91vcdxkm3dl

I have tried reading this a bajillion times…but I ALWAYS MISS PERCY. I can’t help it, it just feels so weird reading a Rick Riordan book that’s not told by his perspective. I have also heard that not everyone likes this particular book, which I wish would give me the incentive to push through it, but I can’t bring myself to! Maybe I’ll try the audiobook next.

Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag

Hello everyone! Apologies again for not being active! 8 more days of studying for finals and I’m finally free! I honestly cannot wait for my summer to begin, and can you believe it…I haven’t read one book in June 🙈 It’s been a crazy month.

I thought it would be fun to do the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag since I’m halfway through my reading goal of 40 books, so it’s a perfect spot to reflect back on the books I have read so far this year!


1.The best book you’ve read so far in 2018

Hands down Circe by Madeline Miller! I’m constantly raving about this book and it’s a story that will stick with me for a very long time!

2. The best sequel you’ve read so far in 2018

Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton! Even though it was a reread for me this year, I still had a blast reading it! I knew all the twists and surprises, but it was still nice to reread a favorite book from last year!

Books I Read Super Fast!

I’m 98% positive this was a Top 5 Wednesday topic a few weeks back, BUT I LOVE THE TOPIC SO MUCH, that I still had to do it, even though it’s waaaay past the date. 😂

As a side note, (which is something I feel like I mention on every single wrap up of mine when I always fail to reach my reading goal) I am 100% the slowest reader in this community. So the books that I am actually able to read super fast, I LOVE THEM! They make me feel so accomplished and it’s a great feeling, especially if you’re like me and always feel behind on your reading goals.


The Books I Read in One Sitting

Now as rare as this is for me, it sometimes happens! The thing about reading a book in one sitting, is that although as I said before it makes me feel super accomplished, I tend to forget everything I read in a couple of days. So it’s not the best technique for me 😂

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian 13406425

I genuinely, genuinely, GENUINELY, do not remember one single thing about this book. I think it has something to do with 3 girls in high school, but that’s honestly all I know. Right when I got this book in the mail (years ago) I read it in less than an hour. It was pretty insane, but the font was huge and it was like a 300 page book anyways. Overall, since this is actually a series, I think it’s a great option to read during a read-a-thon!

June TBR! [2018]

Hi guys! Since I have loaaads of finals this month, I thought it would be fair for me to make a significantly smaller TBR than I usually do. Just to keep my stress at bay A LITTLE BIT. 😂

Exams also explain the reason as to why I’ve been more inactive lately…it’s a lot harder to keep up with all your wonderful blog posts on top of all the studying I’ve been doing, so I apologize! I try to keep up the best I can!


A Gathering of Shadows by V.E Schwab
A Gathering of Shadows Final

I’m so happy this finally came in the mail! I have to read it before I forget what happened in the first book, but I can definitely say for sure that I’m loving Victoria’s writing style and the worlds she creates! I’m also looking into picking up Vicious…especially since there’s news of her sequel to it!

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

25486998

Believe it or not, I’ve been in a contemporary mood lately! (which rarely happens) but I have to take advantage of it while I can! The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is definitely the cause for it, but I can’t complain! I’ve been reading a little too much fantasy lately, and I feel like it’s been hard for me to find a fantasy book that doesn’t feel like it’s been done before.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I’m SO excited to read this! I’ve been hearing amazing things before, but after watching the movie trailer for it, it just made me 110% more stoked to finally dive into the hype! It just sounds like a fun read to fly through, and that really is something I need this month!


That’s all the books I’m going to attempt to read in June, and I know it’s a crazy small number to some of you, but it’ll feel like an accomplishment to me this month! 😂

Let me know what books you’re planning to read in June, or some that you’ve already finished!
