What are you hoping to read this September? ๐Ÿ“š Do you read books as they come out? ๐Ÿ“š Every year I tell myself Iโ€™ll be more on top of Fall releases post #BookExpo and every year this happens. So this planned to read stack is probably too ambitious. But these are the books Iโ€™ll be pulling from for the rest of the month. ๐Ÿ“š The Queen of Sorrow is long overdue but Iโ€™ve been nervous to see how the Queenโ€™s of Renthia series ends! I started Everything All at Once last month but it got pushed to the wayside for my book a day challenge. ๐Ÿ“š #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #toread #shelfiesunday

What books are you excited to read this month? ๐Ÿ“š Happy August! Last night I made some time to take book photos for the first time in about two weeks (basically all my posts for the second half of July were taken on the flyโ€”it was very stressful). And you know what? It was really fun! I enjoyed picking out new angles and experimenting with props. ๐Ÿ“š These are the books Iโ€™m planning to read this month. I think it might be a little ambitious, especially with my first #missprintbookaday challenge coming up on the 25th but some are really fast contemporaries so Iโ€™m optimistic! ๐Ÿ“š I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #fivebooktag: ๐Ÿ“–Last Book Purchase: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken ๐Ÿ“–Second to Last Gift: Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George ๐Ÿ“–Third Book in a Series: The Demonโ€™s Surrender by Sarah Rhys Brennan ๐Ÿ“–Second Book Read in 2018: Reign the Earth by A. C. Gaughen ๐Ÿ“–First Favorite Book: Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta I tagged some friends but consider yourself tagged if you want to join the fun! ๐Ÿ“š #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #toread

What are you hoping to read this month? ๐Ÿ“š These are the books Iโ€™m planning to get to. Iโ€™m halfway through Unclaimed Baggage but Iโ€™ve been savoring it as I read with a friend. Iโ€™m also hoping to buddy read Grace and Fury later this month with @cassieopiabooks. ๐Ÿ“š Since some of these books are rather large Iโ€™m going for a trimmed down tbr for the month. Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ“š (And remember you can always check my profile here to see what Iโ€™m currently reading listed in my bio!) ๐Ÿ“š #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #fairyloot #booksandfunko #toread

What books are you looking forward to reading this month? ๐Ÿ“š Hereโ€™s my planned TBR for May. ๐Ÿ“š I am already reading I Capture the Castle but decided it has to be a home read because itโ€™s too heavy. I also started Royals but thatโ€™s on hold while I work through Votes for Women from last monthโ€™s stack. This is a lot but Iโ€™m hoping I can stick to it. Obviously The Queen of Sorrow is high priority as one of my most anticipated series Enders this year. ๐Ÿ“š #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #royalsbook #tbr #toread

April 2018 Reading Tracker

Here’s my planned to read list:

View this post on Instagram

Do you plan ahead what youโ€™re going to read? ๐Ÿ“š (Do not hit me up saying youโ€™re a mood reader! Reading is a mood-based activity. Thatโ€™s why I plan a stack with no special order.) ๐Ÿ“š This is my to read stack for April. I think itโ€™s a little too ambitious but Iโ€™ve carried over most of these books for two solid months so itโ€™s time. As is my way I am currently reading something else but really hoping to knock a couple of these out soon. ๐Ÿ“š Have you read any of these? Where should I start? ๐Ÿ“š #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #bookstack #toread #toberead

Books Read:

  1. Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire
  2. Noteworthy by Riley Redgate
  3. Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten
  4. Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston
  5. Scarlett Hart: Monster Hunter by Marcus Sedgwick, illustrated by Thomas Taylor
  6. Noteworthy by Riley Redgate
  7. Bad Girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten
  8. The City on the Other Side by Mairghread Scott, illustrated by Robin Robinson
  9. Cucumber Quest: The Doughnut Kingdom by Gigi D. G.
  10. Cucumber Quest: The Ripple Kingdom by Gigi D. G.
  11. Defy the Worlds by Claudia Gray

  13. Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi
  14. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
  15. Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol
  16. The Wicked King by Holly Black

Books Bought:

  1. Circe by Madeline Miller
  2. The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
  3. Royals by Rachel Hawkins
  4. Tithe by Holly Blak (I sort of don’t want to count these because I had to spend store credit anyway but okay)

ARCs Received:

  1. Royals by Rachel Hawkins (Vine)
  2. Give Me Some Truth by Eric Gansworth (not requested, Scholastic)
  3. All Summer Long by Hope Larson (requested, First:Second)
  4. My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma (Vine)

So I read a lot this month including THE WICKED KING (SO GOOD OMG) and a new surprise favorite Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi. But I kind of failed at my planned reading. I’m hoping to knock out the lingering titles (Our Dark Duet, Votes for Women, I Capture the Castle, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Now a Major Motion Picture) next month but I think for some it’s officially make or break time. In other words, if I’m not reading them now I may not read them ever.

I also might have to admit that my dual goal to read more nonfiction AND more adult books may have been too ambitious. I’m doing great with adult titles but nonfiction has been a struggle and I might have to admit that it’s okay to let that go for now.

You can also see what I read in March.

Time to share my planned reading stack for March! ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š February got away from me reading wise. It was a good month but I just didnโ€™t get to as many books as I had hoped.

March 1: I am definitely reading less this year but I think it might be with more intention so calling it a win.

March 8: Still surprised by how much I enjoyed Saint Anything! I went through my to read/recently read books and pulled 20 to donate/give away.
