Happy July! What are you reading this month? 📚 After taking last month off, I’m back with a planned to read stack. I’m doing a new thing where I am trying to read books as soon people recommend them which is why Sloppy Firsts and There Will Come a Darkness are featured. (Also they worked with my dark and light stack.) 📚 Permanent Record and 10 Blind Dates are two of my most anticipated books from BookExpo that I’m excited to get to. 📚 Caster goes with my book stack color scheme and also sounds like a blast. Despite getting a copy from Uppercase, I haven’t gotten to Dance of Thieves but after hearing more about it at BookExpo and getting an arc of Vow of Thieves I’m very excited to get to it soon. 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #lovereading #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #uppercasebox #toread #bookstack

February 2019 Reading Tracker

  1. Windwitch by Susan Dennard
  2. Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
  3. Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard
  4. Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
  5. The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

February is almost always a bad reading month for me (at least since I started tracking this stuff) so I’m not surprised by these results. Consider the number of things I had going on at work and things that I had to read that weren’t books, I’m not that upset by these results.

Happy February! 📚 Here are all the books I need to read this month. Have you read any of them? 📚 I’m very excited to start Truly Devious (a birthday gift from @thebookbandit!) But now that I’ve gained momentum on Windwitch (soooooooo much better than Truthwitch) I’m trying to ride that through the rest of the series before I tackle anything else. 📚 You can also see my newest Narwhal succulent. It’s doing well so far! And I’m taking name suggestions :) 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #susandennard #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #sarahporter #maureenjohnson #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #mayamotayne #booksofinstagram #goodreads #nevercontentedthings #bookish #trulydevious #nocturna #truthwitch #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #bookstack #whattoread #toberead
