My TBR For June – An Exciting Month

Last month I managed to read a grand total of 7 books, but I’m not going to be giving myself the same target for this month. This is mainly because there were two bank holidays in May and I don’t think I’ll have to time to read another 7 this month. However, I’m still going to be ambitious and choose 6 books that I would like to get around to this month.

June will be a mixture of carrying on with a few series and starting some brand new ones as well, which I am really looking forward to. My main problem will be deciding what order to read them in.

And the books are…

I am about 60% of the way through Empire of Storms, so my first goal is to finish that by Monday night (possibly today if I have the time). This series is definitely in my top ten and I am finding myself enjoying this instalment more now that there’s a bit more action. I can’t wait to see what will happen, and depending on how it ends you may find me sneaking Tower of Dawn into this months list.

After loving Scythe so much I headed straight to Amazon and ordered Thunderhead. The first book was incredible and I’m just hoping that the second one lives up to it as well. Everything about this series is so unique and I can’t wait to find out what happens to Rowan and Citra in the sequel. Something tells me it’ll be very interesting.

I am slowly making my way toward the end of the Falling Kingdoms series, with the fourth and fifth book added to this months TBR. I am obsessed with this world and all the characters, and the ending of the third just left me wanting more. I have no idea what is going to happen next but I am enjoying the ride. Also, I am living for the covers in this series. They are gorgeous! Although, unfortunately I don’t have the final and sixth book yet, but hopefully I will before I finish Crystal Storm.

Now that I have finished reading the Grisha trilogy, it is time for me to move on to a series everyone seems to love…Six of Crows. I am so excited to read more about the Grisha world and meet some new characters. I hope there’s some appearances from characters I already know of, or at least mentions of them. Fingers crossed I enjoy it even more than the original series.

Lastly, I have added A Court of Thorns and Roses, which is a series I have been meaning to start for a good few months. Everyone always says how dark and sexy this series is, so I’m intrigued, and you can’t go wrong with books about the fae. It’ll also be good to see how different it is to the Throne of Glass series. Lucky for me that I have the next two for when I finish the first.

I’m not sure if I will be able to read all of these, as some are quite big, but I’m going to give it my best shot!

What book are you looking forward to reading the most this month?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR List Forever

TTT-Big2

Top Ten Tuesday was originally hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish and is now over at Jana’s blog, That Artsy Reader Girl.

The problem with being a book hoarder is that we are forever buying books and never having the time to read them. So they sit on our shelves, gathering the dust (figuratively speaking because we would never let dust touch our books) and we forget about them.

This weeks topic is all about those books. The ones that we keeping forgetting to read. Or perhaps ones we wished we had bought and still want to buy.

1. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

A-Discovery-of-Witches-US

Originally added to my Goodreads To-Read list in 2011, I have been wanting to read this for a long time and I even have it on my shelf. I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, but I will be looking to change that in 2018.

2. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

shadow and bone

I recently just bought this on my Kindle because it was so cheap and it is a book I have been wanting to read since forever.

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

daughter of smoke and bone

Everybody used to rave about this book years ago when it came out and I always wanted to read it, but for one reason or another I didn’t get a chance to. I probably never will, but it’s still on my Goodreads list.

4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

While this book wasn’t added to my Goodreads To-Read list, I have been wanting to read it for a while now and I finally have the duology on my shelves, just waiting for me to pick them up.

5. Magician by Raymond E. Feist

My dad actually suggested this book to me because he said the trilogy was incredible and so I bought it a couple of years ago. I did start reading Magician, but I only got around 150 pages in. I can still remember what I read, as clear as day, so I am going to revisit it this year and maybe buy the rest.

6. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword

I am a third of the way through Glass Sword and it has been stuck on my Currently Reading section for a good three or four months now. I just need to plough through it and get to King’s Cage before the final book is released.

7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

cinder

While I read Cinder, I never finished the rest of the series and people have been raving about it. I have no idea where my copy is now, so if I wanted to finish it off I would have to buy it again.

8. Graceling by Kristin Cashore

graceling

A book that has been sitting on my shelf for years. I think I might have started it at some point but lost interest in it for one reason or another. I’m still not sure if I’m going to read it.

9. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

clockwork prince

So, funny story. I really loved Clockwork Angel and started Clockwork Prince…only to stop reading just over halfway. I think this is a series that I need to re-read before I start Lady Midnight.

10. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

the demon king

I have heard PeruseProject on YouTube talk about this book a couple of times and I actually added it to my To-Read list way back in 2011. It is still a book that I want to read because I am really into Fantasy at the moment (I have to be if I’m writing a Fantasy book).
