November TBR

Hey guys I am back with my November TBR. I am only going to put 4 books on this list because my little man is due any day. I didn’t want to go crazy with the stack. So I decided to go with a theme that I know I will enjoy reading…ready…

 

 

Image result for fairy tale retellings

 

I love a good fairy tale retelling especially if it is one of my favorite stories. So I went down to my local library and picked up 3 books by the same author because I knew that’s what she writes. Also Bekah Awesomebooknut on Youtube suggested these books in several of her videos especially the first book. If you haven’t seen her videos where have you been. She is one of my favorite booktubers to watch and I believe I have seen every one of them. Bekah is also very sweet and is an awesome mom so I can relate better with her than some of the others. Ok enough fangirling….on to the books.

 

RoseBlood

I received a digital copy of this book through Netgalley and I have already started it. It is a retelling of The Phantom of the Opera. This book does not come out until Jan 10, 2017.

Goodreads

Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe, #1)

Graceling meets Beauty and the Beast in this sweeping fantasy about one girl’s journey to fulfill her destiny and the monster who gets in her way-by stealing her heart.

I loved Graceling and Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite fairy tale. I started reading this book as soon as I got back in my car from the library. This is the first book in the Cruel Beauty Universe.

Goodreads

Crimson Bound

Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.

 I am absolutely in love with this cover!!

Goodreads

Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (Untitled, #1)

This is the one that captured my eye at the library. Omgosh these covers!!! I didn’t want to read the synopsis of this one but on the back all I saw was the name Juliet and I had to get it because it is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet!!!!

Goodreads

I hope you enjoyed my little TBR pile for the month. I know when the baby gets here I am not going to want to do anything but snuggle him.

Don’t forget to check out Bekah’s YouTube page and also her blog. Links down below!!!

October TBR

146371

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a fantastic day already. I am not feeling my best but that’s ok I probably need more sleep.

Like I said in my last post September was the best reading month for me this year and I am hoping that I can have just as good if not better month in October. 

This month as all of you know hosts one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. Due to me having a huge belly and not being able to walk to much I think I may sit this year out…well if i get to stay home I will be passing out candy for the first time in 8 years. Anyways I digress…..back to the TBR.

So I went through my shelves and kindle to find some of the scariest books or themes I can find. Most of which are for review but here is my line up for October.

 This is Novels At Night, my book club, pick this month. I haven’t read any of Clive Barker’s novels but it sounds very intense.

Here is the rest of the books I am going to try and read…

 

The Bone Witch by [Chupeco, Rin] Loss of Light (The Break Free Series Book 2) by [Fitch, E.M.] Z-MINUS: The Post Apocalyptic Horror Series (Book 1) by [Briar, Perrin] Halfway Dead (Halfway Witchy Book 1) by [Maggert, Terry]

7 book goal this month. Its definitely ambitious of me with everything going on this month but I am going to try my best.

October Library Haul

The past few weeks I have been seriously lacking in my reading department. I have about 8 books I need to read and review by the end of the month. Yikes!! Well I am only human and things happen all the time, like my daughter being home sick. So I read as much as I can.

I was wondering also though what haven’t I posted in awhile on here. Ah!! My Library book haul. I have a reason why too. The last time I went to the library and checked out roughly 15 books…hehe. When I went to turn them in some of the books had this mysterious coffee looking stain on them. I questioned everyone and no one has touched these books….including myself since I first put them on my bookshelf. Right in the middle of the shelf too. So I was charged the full price for them but it took about 2 months to finally be able to have the money to buy them. On the up side I have two new books and they are both in the same trilogy. Win!

Anyways we went to the library with the girls the other day and of course I can’t help myself. So I wandered into the YA section and tried to find some books that have a darker theme to them. Since its October and Halloween is right around the corner.

So here are the ones I have chosen, let me know if you have read these, what you thought, and what DARK books you are reading this month!!

 

The Graveyard Book ~ Graphic Novels

The Sin Eater’s Daughter

Skylark

The Archive

Fig

Boxers & Saints ~Graphic Novels

Two of these titles I also have on Audiobook, so I will be listening to them while I do other things around the house.

Thank you so much for being so patient with me!!

House by Ted Dekker (12 pages)

PUSH by Sapphire (38 pages)

The First Escape (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, #1)

Synopsis

I was able to finish it so fast that it is half  regular novel and half graphic novel. I will be putting up a review on this soon.
