Yes PleaseDarkhouse (Experiment in Terror, #1)

Yes, Please is my current audiobook. Last night I started Darkhouse — I’m only one chapter in, but it wasn’t doing it for me. I’ll give it a bit longer to see what the hype is about. 

This Week’s TBR List

I gotta be honest here, I’m exhausted. My A/C is out and of course it is the start of a heat wave, so I guess I didn’t sleep well. I don’t think today I’ll get much read even though I do have the day off. It is also making it difficult coming up with books to read this week… 
Until the unit gets fixed I’m assuming I’ll be out of it, so I’m giving myself another easy week. 

Here is what I’ve come up with: 

Weight Expectations (Cipher Office, #1)Archer's VoiceMagical Intentions (Biomystic Security #1)A Ferry of Bones & Gold (Soulbound, #1)

  • Weight Expectations by M.E. Carter
    I need to get working on Smartypants Romance books. They are popping up and being published like crazy! 
  • Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan
    I’ve been waiting to read this one until the perfect time. Well, this might be it. I want to feel all the emotions. 
  • Magical Intentions by Jaliza A. Burwell
    Tech & magic working together sounds like something I’m ready to read about. 
  • A Ferry of Bones & Gold by Hailey Turner
    While there are mixed reviews on this one, I keep running into it.

Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love, #1)Forged by Desire (London Steampunk, #4)Not Your Idol, Vol. 1Seven Sins of Snow

  • Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday
    I need some cuteness this week. 
  • Forged by Desire by Bec McMaster
    I keep putting this book off, but it is a buddy read I agreed to… 
  • Not Your Idol, vol. 1 by Aoi Makino
    An ARC and graphic novel I do really want to read. 
  • Seven Sins of Snow by Loxley Savage
    Retelling of Snow White with the 7 sins…. sounds dark and bloody and I’m kinda feeling “why not?”

The One Decent ThingHidden in Darkness (In Darkness, #1)A Light in the Darkness (In Darkness, #2)Deception in Darkness (In Darkness #3)Dancing in Darkness (In Darkness, #3.5)

  • The One Decent Thing by Eliot Grayson 🍰🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Hidden in Darkness by Alice Winters 🍰🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐ – I wasn’t as taken with this book as I was other books by this author. Someone suggested a buddy read of book 2 though, so I decided to carry on.
  • A Light in the Darkness and Deception in Darkness by Alice Winters 🍰🌈🤞🐾
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – I’m glad I continued on because I did end up liking this series. 
  • Dancing in Darkness by Alice Winters 🍰🌈🌱
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – There’s a cute little novella with the series I couldn’t say no to reading.

Elven Doom (Death Before Dragons, #4)Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare, Vol. 1 (しまなみ誰そ彼 Shimanami Tasogare, #1)A Shifter's Curse (Rouen Chronicles, #1)Take It Down A NotchClap When You Land

  • Elven Doom by Lindsay Buroker 🍰🤞
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – I am still very much in love with this series. 
  • Our Dreams at Dusk, vol. 1 by Yuki Kamatani💥🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This one I picked up on a whim at work. I ordered it unsure how I’d feel and it finally arrived so I was checking to make sure it really is a YA book when I ended up reading the whole thing. I’m looking forward to book 2. 
  • A Shifter’s Curse by Raven Steele & Ava Mason 🍰🐾🤞
    ⭐⭐⭐ – This was a hard one to get through. If it wasn’t a buddy read I might not have pushed through. It got better in the end at least.. I won’t be continuing though because I heard their personalities don’t get better. 
  • Take it Down a Notch by Weston Parker 🍰🤞
    ⭐⭐⭐
  • Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo 🎧🤞🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Wow, what a book! 

How to Howl at the Moon (Howl at the Moon #1)Wicked Wings (Lizzie Grace, #5)Norse Mythology

  • Howl at the Moon series 1-5 by Eli Easton 🍰🌈
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This series is adorably sweet and I pretty much binged it. It is about dog-shifters!! So sweet and literally everything I wanted when I picked up book 1. 
  • Wicked Wings by Keri Arthur 🤞
    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – I know, Finally! This series is starting to drag though… yes this one is good, but I thought there would be more personal conflict… it should happen in the next one though. 
  • Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman 🎧👑
    ⭐⭐⭐ – This was entertaining, but I am glad I listened to it. I think if I read it I wouldn’t have liked it as much.

Darkest Night (Sons of Broad #1)La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust, #1)Married with Zombies (Living with the Dead, #1)The Surface BreaksGreen Rider (Green Rider, #1)

Darkest Night by Tara Thomas
It isn’t at any of my libraries, so I’ll have to say no to this one.

La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Of course I’ll read this one! I mean… eventually…

Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen
I heard this was a good audiobook, so I’ll keep it again. I also enjoy reading books about married couples and it sounds funny.

The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
I’ve heard really good things about this book, even if I don’t see many reviews for it.

Green Rider by Kristen Britain
This sounds so magical and amazing! Why have I not read this one yet?

♛ The Highs ♛

I added… too many books this week. I’m actually in awe of how many I added. Over 60 books. How even?! I know some of these are because I entered giveaways, but yikes. I removed so, so many books, you have no idea and here I give you my top 10 adds from the week. 

A Villain for ChristmasTrack the Sun (Night Traveler, #1)The Capital (The Knight and the Necromancer #1)Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick (Zoey Ashe, #2)They Called Us Enemy

  • A Villain for Christmas by Alice Winters
    I have been loving the Alice Winters books I’ve been reading… this may be one of 4 of her books I added to my TBR this week. This one I’m saving from Christmas (maybe), but the others I might be devouring soon. 
  • Track the Sun by Becca Andre 
    She’s an animal trainer, but she has magic and is hiding from a shaman. Verra interesting. 
  • The Knight & The Necromancer by A.H. Lee
    Potentially enemies to lovers??? 
  • Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong 
    The sequel I forgot I was waiting for, but am now totally hyped about!!
  • They Called Us Enemy by George Takei
    I thought this was on my TBR already…. anyhow, planning on reading this super soon.

Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare, Vol. 2Home Before DarkWill & Patrick Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 1 - 6: Wake Up Married / Meet the Family Do the Holidays / Fight Their Feelings / Meet the Mob / Happy EndingFailed Princesses Vol. 1Unmasked by the Marquess (Regency Imposters, #1)

  • Our Dreams at Dusk, vol. 2 by Yuhki Kamatani
    The first volume was so good!
  • Home Before Dark by Riley Sager 
    The one book I read by this author was good and this one sounds creepily good.
  • Will & Patrick Wake Up Married by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths
    This one sounds absolutely adorable. 
  • Failed Princesses, vol. 1 by Ajiichi
    Gosh this is another adorable sounding one that I hope is full of love, hope, and cuteness. 
  • Unmasked by the Marquess by Cat Sebastian 
    I keep telling myself I’m going to read this author — I don’t even know how many books of hers I have on my TBR. Also, I don’t know if I’ve read a book with a nonbinary character before so, wow this would be new for me. 

TBR TOTAL: 1085 
Last week my total was 1060, honestly I’d be more “how is this possible” had I not just brought my total DOWN from 1100+ going through them for my Highs. 

So, I’m really glad I go through my TBR every week to clean up books that I added on whims. 

What’s new on your TBR you’re excited to read?
